Penguindrum and Strike Witches round out ALTER's scans
1:00 PM on 11.22.2012
The Princess of the Crystal and another version of Sanya show up in the latest magazine scans.
Put down that turkey! There's still scans to talk about! With MegaHobby EXPO 2012 Autumn around the corner, certainly the latest magazine scans have something for what ALTER may have at this event on November 25, 2012.
ALTER revealed an unpainted prototype earlier in the year of the Princess of the Crystal from Mawaru Penguindrum at Wonder Festival 2012 Summer and now we're getting to see her to completely colored. It is one of the cuter and more beautiful versions for the face, pose, and the penguins holding her dress. The expression, the shape of the face, the style of the eyes and those lips make me want to bow down in a heartbeat. And then there is the hand on the hip, the extended hand with pointing finger, and the overall movement of her body make me want to cave and finally buy a figure of this character. Unfortunately this 1/8-scale figure won't come cheap with a price set at ¥12,390 but I think the price speaks as to why (I blame that dress and the box it'll have to fit). No release date has been set but I can assume we'll see this one getting some delays before it finally ships.
For those who like Sanya V. Litvyak from Strike Witches 2, you're in luck since ALTER will be releasing a new version of her who is looking very lovely for her new mold. The 1/8-scale Sanya V. Litvyak Rocket Booster Ver. features Sanya in a new pose with her ginormous rocket launcher on her shoulder while her other hand is poised in a dainty way. However, I think what makes this figure are the alternates parts of her in her winter coat, scarf, and boosters on her Strike Unit. I couldn't get into Strike Witches but I've always had a soft spot for Sanya with that coat and scarf so I'm curious to see this one in color. No other details are available yet for this one but we'll probably see her sometime in 2013.
Well, not much to look at but maybe ALTER has more up their sleeve for this weekend's event. Are you interested in either of these ladies or are you tired of seeing Strike Witches and the Princess of the Crystal?
