- Cute!! I was gonna list everything I liked about her design but I realised I would have just been describing the entire figure, lol. I love the pose and the way she's holding/showing off the machinery. It's also really cool that the propeller blades can spin!
- She might be my favourite of the lot you featured here. I'm impressed that she comes with so many different parts and display options! I prefer the stripey socks to the mecha legs, though. Also, your cosplay of her was awesome! You got some really nice photos of you in the cosplay, too - wow!
- I've never watched Strike Witches but this character seems to be the face of the franchise? She certainly is very cute and this is a great figure by Alter. ITEM #520672
is also another good one by Alter. I quite like her action pose and determined face. I also like that the pose doesn't feature an in-your-face panty shot -- something that kind of irks me about some of the Strike Witches figures Alter made, lol.
- I agree that her base is very cute. It's a peaceful little scene. I imagine maybe those green parts on the base could also be to represent grass...? Maybe if you're a crafty type you could get some diorama grass from a hobby shop and glue it to the base? I don't really know what I'm talking about here but I've seen videos of people making dioramas and creating grass and moss which I though was really cool. Anyway, about the figure herself....hmm. Unfortunately she looks a little derp-y to me. Her expression just seems a bit blank. I think the :D mouth doesn't match the eyes.
Also, when you were talking about how you lost the teacup and wondered what the new owners would think.... that reminded me of how when I was younger I randomly found a tiny little tortoise figurine in our backyard. It was buried in the dirt; quite strange! I still have that little tortoise; he now lives on a shelf in the kitchen watching over the pantry, lol. Maybe your little teacup had a similar fate? Who knows if anyone ever found it. Maybe someone will find it in 50 years, hidden away in some forgotten place. Kind of weird to think about!
