Is it me or has OE (Original Effect) run out of ideas for their 1/6 scale female figures that are 13 inches tall? This will be the third Viola figure OE will be releasing, having first released the Original Effect (OE) Army Attractive series 1/6 Viola 13.5-inch female action figure in 2013 (reviewed in my toy blog post HERE and HERE), followed by OE (Original Effect): 1/6 scale Army Attractive Vol.9 – Viola 2.0 Female Action Figure (previewed HERE) and now this: OE (Original Effect) 1/6 scale Shadow Series Viola (SH-1) 13-inch female figure.
OE (Original Effect) 1/6 scale Shadow Series Viola (SH-1) 13-inch female figure will come with Reborn Body (Blue skin), Viola’s Shadow head, Military coat, Gloves (1 Pair), Waistband, Corsage (with detachable collar), Skirt, Tight Stockings (with underpants), Hands. The pictures don’t show her having blue skin and if she has blue skin, it only makes sense that her face will be blue as well (hence “shadow head”) which also doesn’t show in the pictures. What they do show is improvement on her previous wardrobe.
It seems like OE (Original Effect) actually listened to collector feedback and decided to right the wrongs and improve on what they didn’t do very well the first time around. As mentioned in my review of the Original Effect Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola female action figure (femfig) HERE
, the body was crappy and horrendous, the top kept slipping off, and the skirt kept riding up. OE seems to have corrected the mishaps by introducing a newer and much better 13-inch “reborn” body which I covered HERE
, replaced the slippery top with one that has a strap that goes over her neck so that it stays up and a skirt with much more stretchable material so that it stays wrapped around the hips.

What’s missing from this Shadow Viola’s getup / outfit from the original version? Her visor cap, revolver with holster and cigar. I think the coat is also missing the symbol / badge at the back. It had a face made up of a cross and skull on a shield. You can check out the pictures HERE
OE (Original Effect): 1/6 scale Army Attractive Vol.9 – Viola 2.0 Female Action Figure didn’t look much like Viola version 1.0 (previewed HERE
) and I know many collectors lamented missing out on original version Viola (even though she had a crappy body but she was still the FIRST and you never forget your first haha) so this one does comes pretty close although I for one am uncomfortable with a blue skin female figure, unless she’s from Pandora.
Looks like OE is re-introducing Hasuike Sunayuki (pictures HERE
) and 1/6 Army Attractive Series Vol. 3 Harp Bullseye (previewed HERE
) in their Shadow Series as well.
Expected Release date for OE (Original Effect) 1/6 scale Shadow Series Viola (SH-1) 13-inch female figure: 7/2014
