The undeniable appeal of the Shining series continues with this upcoming pre-order from Alter, featuring Hearts' lovely pirate leader Mistral in all her frilly glory. While she might not strike up the image of a swashbuckler, with such a detailed outfit I'm not going to complain about it!
There's certainly a lot to love in Misty's design, from the large amount of detail in her dress, to the semblance of movement conveyed and the vivid, stand-out color choices used. Black and red almost always look good together, and so it is with Misty with some added white for good measure.
Alter's also gone the distance and foregone a simple base for one with a colorful blue splash reaching up Misty's leg, complementing some nice effects around her outstretched arm and umbrella, too. She's definitely a great example of how Shining figures manage to range from simplistic to very complex and look just as fantastic either way, so don't miss picking her up in May for about ¥10,380.
