Have a cow, man! The Bodacious Bovine came out as part of an eight-pack. It's a cow, but udder-ly devoid of feminine characteristics. You're going to love this.
Molded in white plastic, this one doesn't have as much paint as you might hope. Sure, it has red eyes and blue armor, but no black or brown spots. You'll notice grooves in its skin indicating where those kinds of markings could go, but the toy budgets of the late 1980s gave us wonderful things like toy lines with very few repaints. Small figures with low articulation were popular, so that's what we have here - an albino bovine created deftly enough for general heifer-interested junkies. Sure, the horns are unpainted and white, but this line had a green rabbit in the first wave and if you can deal with that, you can deal with the weird claw-like hooves and awesomely robotic armor. The quasi-Transformers aesthetic is just gorgeous, with that perfect feel that's hard to put into words.
This fellow doesn't do much - he can stand and his arms rotate, with hands designed to g.shtml the (at least in Japan) strangely named sword. It's the Bread & Butter Sword, which is a perfectly nice curved-blade weapon with a weird triangle guard around the grip. It's distinctive and not particularly cow-like. I don't know what else you might give it, to be honest - it's a decent fit.
While I'm generally not a big fan of customizing my toys, I can totally see why you'd want to add paint to this one. If they reissued it with more markings, I'd buy it. As it is, it looks sort of like a rare double-horned unicorn of some sort. We don't get a lot of cow toys - this reminded me of a recent Four Horsemen figure - so I'd say go ahead and snag it. A complete one should set you back less than $20 by mail, even cheaper if you buy a small lot or collection. I love these little guys, so I'd say go for it.
