The packaging for the nurse statue is a collectors piece all in itself. Coloured with deep reds, the box features an image of the nurse designed by Masahiro Ito. The front uses the famous 9 square save image from Silent Hill 2 as a window to see inside the box. The statue itself is light weight and easy to piece together.
Inside the box contains the Nurse, a stand, two pairs of hands, an imitation steel pipe and 3 black clips. These clips are so you can attach more than one Nurse figure to the base to create an additional scene. The statue comes with two pairs so you can have her hold the steel pipe in either the left or right hand dependant on personal choice. I have chosen to go with the steel pipe in her left hand.
The packaging also contains a full list of all the people/companies involved in the production and release of the figure. It also has two small profile sections with a brief description about Shin Tanabe, the Sculptor and Yoshinori Yatake, who is the painter. Along with these profiles the box also contains information about Silent Hill and the Bubble Head Nurse.
The Nurse statue itself is highly detailed. Starting from her feet upwards you can see small specks of blood on her shoes to coincide with the bloody footprints on the floor. Her legs are pale and covered in small veins. Her dress is creased and dirty, torn in places with small blood specks here and there. She also has on a small name badge but her name is unfortunately not visible (I call her Cynthia). Her body leans to the one side to replicate her movements in the game.
Her detachable hands are painted to look like they have gloves over them. They have even been given a glossy, shiny look as if they are in fact made from rubber. The steel pipe she brandishes in her hands also looks like real metal.
This figure also comes with a small card that is attached to the inside of the box opening. It contains a small amount of information on one side with you own figure number. The Nurse I received is Number: 00024. The other side of the card has the same image we see on the back of the box.
You can also purchase the Bubble Head Nurse from Game-Legends.com for € 149.98.
This is definitely one for the fans and a real must!
