    Only slightly better than the misogynistic and sadist output this manufacturer usually produces.

    Bit harsh?
    Not my thing either but "slave" girls etc. are a part of classic sword and sorcery novels and films. Vinni's do produce nice Renaissance, WW2, Norse and Sci-Fi models too, even Teenage mutant Turtles. Although I'm not too sure of the Star Wars and TMNT license agreements, there are some nice figures in their ranges that are not in any way "misogynistic".

    No …….not harsh at all!
    this manufacturer has posted models on this very forum that are, without doubt, sadistic and very misogynistic. So much so that the forum moderator has been obliged to remove them.
    If you are in any doubt I suggest that you look at the manufacturers website a little more closely.
    Having made my views quite clear, I shall say no more and do not intend to get to get into a slanging match.

    Fair do Nigel. I Did not intend to start a slanging match , you are perfectly entitled to your opinion.

    I had looked at Vinni's site prior to my last post and, out of curiosity, I Just did so again. Doing a quick / rough count of their 28mm range, (which is where the offending items are mainly to be found); out of a total of 210 figures, I found only 31 figures that I would consider to be of a dubious nature, and some of those were in the "captives being taken away category". There were 52 other nude or partially dressed figures of the "girlie" genre and 127 figures with no sexual content that I could define.
    I do however find it odd that Vinni's only seem to post the Dodgier figures from their range on this site - it doesn't appear to be a good PR exercise for them.

    And no Nigel, I do not support Misogyny or cruelty to women and would share your concerns if I thought Vinni's models were intended to promote this. I do agree however that the more extreme poses of chained "victims" could (or should) be retired and avoided in the future - or maybe they just sell too well.
