Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]
I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]
It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]
Did you know I like Yoko from Gurren Lagann? Well I do! I own about 28 Yoko figures and am still missing only one to complete my collection of all the Scaled PVCs of Yoko. This is the latest one that has been released for Gurren Lagann's 5th Year Anniversary. Of course I'm partially biased when it… [more]
So it seems that I’m reviewing figures in themes as of late. How do you guys like it? Should I maybe mix them up a bit or are we liking the idea of themes? I’ve got plenty of Touhou figures to review but then I also recently got a batch of more One Piece figures for you, would you rather I finish these up then the One Piece or should I just mix them up however? I’m enjoying the themes, keeping figures grouped together that normally would be! Well for now It’s more touhou with Alice Margatroid!
The touhou world is a bit confusing to me, It’s so well detailed and each character has such a long history to them, I figure I’ll forgo explaining the teeeny bit I know from what my brother explained and I’ll just leave this Wiki for you!
For the figure itself Alice is very cute, I wonder if her design is based of Alice from Alice in Wonderland at all with the blue dress and blonde hair.
To my understanding this is Hourai, some form of a doll with her that she uses for attacks I think. She’s very cute and reminds me of Reinforce from Nanoha, at least in this figure form she reminds me of the Reinforce that comes with the Alter Hayate.
Love the color combination, it’s very pleasing to the eyes.
She also comes with a book, no idea what she uses it for.
It really is detailed really well, but you can see that the sculpting oh her fingers had a few hiccups and how her middle finger has a few lunps, nothing too bad but I noticed it in these photos.
Cute puffy sleeves.
Some adorable bloomers, and I wonder is she supposed to be floating or flying somehow? Her feet aren’t really “touching” the base.
I love her flowy hair.
Not much to say about Alice, she’s a bit plain. She’s cute and pleasing to look at, well detailed and overall a great figure. Does she stand out sitting on my shelf with the other figures waiting to be reviewed? Not at all. Would I purchase her not knowing what series she’s from or anything of her background? Not really. But if I were a HUGE Touhou fan would she be a part of my collection? You betcha! She really does have a cute face and if I were getting the whole set It’d be a crime not to include her with the rest of the bunch!
Manufactured by Griffon Enterprises
Initial release in February ’10
Price of 7,200 Yen
She’s a little harder to find but do check out these fine shops to see if they carry them! I do think Toylet has her but I’m not entirely sure.
