[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

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]

Nendoroid Storage Container

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]

Nanoha’s New Eyes Plus Dresses from BJD Atelier

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]

[Alter] Panty & Stocking w/Gaterbelt 1/8 Panty Review

Weee Alter’s Panty finally came in! Been dying for a decent Panty and Stocking figure and Alter has answered our calls! There are only a few Panty figures and by far this one is the best. Her face is truly Panty!

Her eyes especially are panty, even the teeny bit of blue eye shadow that figures rarely get really makes you aware of how  well Alter has done on this figure to make her look just like her anime counterpart.

Alter as well did an amazing job with her hair, my pictures don’t do it justice, it’s slightly translucent so from the front it almost seems as if her hair glows like an angel, but then of course she is an angel!

Even her wings on her shoes are just so wonderfully done, they even perfectly painted each toe a lovely shade of pink.

Panty’s rings

Another thing I adore is the chain on the front of her skirt is actually a chain. I adore when they include small details like that.

Panty’s top, perfectly sculpted, looks like actual clothes with the perfect folds.

Decent base, nothing too fancy, simple enough and doesn’t distract from the figure.

 

Of course, wouldn’t be Panty without showing off her Panties.

Intersting how her wings aren’t on her back but on her hair, makes me want to go back and watch the anime and double check and see where her wing placement is normally.

Alter so far has been the only company to make a good Scaled PVC of Panty. Sega has a decent prize figure and Sentinel has that horrible horrible one. For such a popular series it seems that the love of Panty and Stocking was dwindled a little bit, at least when it comes to merchandise. Maybe we’ll hear of more this upcoming wonfest!

    I didn’t notice that her wings were coming out from her hair on this figure until you mentioned it. That’s a bit… odd. But overall since you look at the figure from the front on the shelf, I suppose whatever gives the best effect is the best way to sculpt it.

    Either way, she’s certainly a nice figure, wish I had gotten her!

  2. Jen says:

    I think her wings just float in the air behind her in the anime, maybe?

  3. shonensakura says:

    i think she is so much better than the other one released by sentinal. the sentinal one is ok but the price is way off. this is a better pick and with the wonderful detail its very good.

    I’ve been keeping my collection from growing too fast due to space constraints but she looks very shelf-worthy! Your photos have incredible color – they look so rich, made me wonder at first if this summer’s re-release is a lighter color version (safe bet they’re identical and yours are just awesome pics).

    BTW, any news on the Good Smile 1/8 P&S figures? I’m a Good Smile girl at heart. :)

    I just received my two Panty and Stocking figures. The wings do not touch their backs at all. They only form in this mode too. Stocking’s figure is seriously just as good as panty. She is actually a bit heavier because of the weight of her dress and hair.. And boobs lol. Well anyway. Great review!
