Mathias when you play "the devils advocat", as you like to refer to it, you tend to write horrible analogies. Like really, really, really attrocious analogies, this is like the 3rd one that was written by you, that has me seriously scratching my head over how you could actually think this demonstrates a point.

So if this was intentional trolling, more power to you. But if it was meant to convince someone that those figurines shouldn't be dissed because the statue of David isn't painted either, then you fail rhetoric for life. Try comparing things that are somewhat, you know, analogous.

This wasn't me playing devil's advocate. This was me trolling. It was supposed to be an exaggeration. Thank you for not giving me any credit and assuming that I am a complete idiot.

Nah, the thought crossed my mind that it is possibly trolling. I did even mention it.

Most statues of yore actually were painted.

The paint just did not survive time as well as the marble did. Archeological and scientific observations and experiments show that they were likely painted very garish, bright colors too.

As for the huge head, small body ones, they're from the Nendoroid series. They occupy a lower price bracket (20~40 dollars), come with interchangeable faces, hair, arms, items, etc. that are universal across Nendoroid (so you could shove say, a the face of your Panty being a slut onto Miku's body, or w/e).

They're posable and quite popular as picture subjects, and generally is equally marketable to both genders. Not that it matters with PSG, considering they essentially look like that for most of the cartoon.

Produced by Good Smile Company, they are probably the least niche PVC product available in the market. Literally a PVC success story.

Closest follow-up would probably be the Revoltech and Figma series, which occupy the $20~ bracket, with no distortion of body size, etc., and are essentially just action figures of many things. Doll joints on these are much more noticeable than in Nendoroids, where they're hidden fairly well.

David was never painted because Michelangelo thought the Romans didn't paint their statues so he wanted to be like them.

But the truth was Roman statues had very tacky colors until time licked it all off.
