Alter's Durarara!! Heiwajima Shizuo is up for pre-order!

Have some beefcake this morning with Alter's Shizuo photo
Have some beefcake this morning with Alter's Shizuo
by Kristina Pino

Alter decided to preview their upcoming Shizuo (Durarara!!) on their blog recently, so check out the gallery for some images of the badassery. He comes with his signature bent sign and glasses which can be removed.

Additionally, it looks like there is an... another Celty with a clear PVC scythe? Not too sure if it'll be transparent in its final form, but hey. She also pretty much looks just like this previously previewed Black Rider Celty set for release in June (in terms of the molding). I'm not sure what's going on with that group picture. Did they just remold the entire figure?

It looks like Shizuo will be up for pre-order in a week (March 14), so keep your eyes peeled if this is the hunk for you.

Reshuffle your budgeting, ALTER has more delays

Durarara!! gets chibi-fied again with Chara-Ani's new set

The amazing title Durarara!! is not the most popular title in the figure world what with very few characters getting a standard scaled figure. It's really just been the attractive (and adorable) Celty and soon the short tempt...
