This Mecha Sure Knows Its Audience (and Fan Service)

Virtual On mecha Fei-Yen is getting yet another plastic model. It's called "TF-14 A/M+ Fei-Yen [Final 14 Special] Vivid Cinderella". Try saying that twice fast.

The kit comes with customizable pieces—weapons and boobs—for both version of Fei-Yen, whether that's the TF-14+, which is named "Vivid Heart", or the TF-14 M+ version, which is named "Cinderella Heart".

This is kind of like what Sega did back in 2010, when it offered a "Fetish Unlock Code" for Xbox 360 game Cyber Troopers Virtual-On: Force that allowed players to make a similar adjustment—an adjustment I'm pretty sure isn't necessary for mecha.

Yo Bash, there's an article on Cracked this week, despite Japan's high tech image to outsiders, apparently Japan's surprisingly low tech at large? That even though they have wi-fi enabled vending machines, fax machines are still widely used in offices instead of machines? That they have fully computerized stock exchange market but banks still keep their records on paper and that ATM machines are rare and locked inside banks outside office hours?

Reading that article and this article about a Japanese robot called "TF-14 A/M+ Fei-Yen [Final 14 Special] Vivid Cinderella", made me think that Japan's very imaginative with their future technology, yet all that might only be a facade?
