Sorceress of Dragon's Crown has her pre-orders revived

Last month, Alpha Max opened its pre-orders for its rendition of the Sorceress from Dragon's Crown. The figure was controversial to its design, and out of nowhere, was pulled from pre-orders. Now the Sorceress has been summon...

Pre-order Griffon's Leafa

Say what you will about the second major arc of the animated series Sword Art Online. Personally I enjoyed it because it was different. Sure, it was not as intense as the original, also it lost a lot of the live or die feelin...

Alter's Laura Bodewig is cooler than anticipated photo
Alter's Laura Bodewig is cooler than anticipated
by Jon Wills

When we first previewed Alter's Laura Bodewig in some hobby magazine scans In July of last year I was quick to dismiss her. For one, in Infinite Stratos I liked all the other girls more than her. Also I thought her figure looked too generic with a bland face. I could not have been more wrong.

To be fair it wasn't entirely my fault, or at least I tell myself in retrospect. The stock photos for her simply did not show off her prettiest aspects and it wasn't until now that she is released that we get a good full look at her. Not only can we see that she is a great maid figurine with all the ribbons, frills and such that you would expect, it also has details in places you wouldn't usually look.

Not only does her maid outfit look purrfect. She also comes with two hair styles, one straight and one twin tailed and with either type of hair you can have an eyepatch covering her other eye or not. You can arrange either a super pretty tea set in her hands or a pistol. Her tea set comes with a silver platter too that you can set anything on as well. Part of me wants to sculpt a plastic pizza and put it there. That would be awesome wouldn't it?

The more I stare at her photos the more I wish that I had pre-ordered her. The obvious solution to this problem would be for me to just pre-order everything that Alter makes, that way I would not have this issue. I did a little hunting around for those interested and included some order links to our favorite merchants who have this lovely maid in stock.
