Mysterious Bounty Hunter Yoko Littner ～ 謎の賞金稼ぎ ヨーコ・リットナー
Posted by meronpan on August 17, 2009
Another late review, though only by a couple weeks this time. Yoko! Including a nendoroid this marks my third yoko… I’ve got a long way to go before even coming close to Dancing Queen’s epic yoko collection (linked is one of her recent reviews which has links to a bunch of her other yoko photo sessions).
When Alter announced this figure I kicked myself for jumping on Enterbrain’s earlier release. They did a decent job but as I try to trim down my purchases… woulda preferred to just have the Alter version.
Details are lovely from head to toe… and even the base is interesting for a change!
I need to compare my pics to others… kinda felt like she was leaning a bit too far forward?
On the other hand maybe that was to counter balance her coat and hair.
Didn’t really do my research – is this based on some official art or anything?
Whatever it is, I appreciate the fact that the sculptor didn’t limit himself (herself?) to yoko’s look from the anime. Totally love this interpretation of her.
Most of all, her hair! Yeah, she has a blob of hair in the show but that doesn’t mean you can’t go and give the figure some details, ya know?
Compare to the Enterbrain release…
… … ne? ^^;
A good tough, confident expression
They did strangely leave off the zippers on her boots…
Or maybe it’s just me not being familiar with this rendition of the character, dunno.
She does have this nice looking holster for her pistol which would’ve gotten in the way of the zipper… perhaps that was the reason?
Dunno, but thought it was a nice touch to have the extra knee strap for the holster.
Pistol is removable for whatever shenanigans you have in mind ^^;
Looks like yoko had quite a few close calls… or that’s just a really old ratty coat.
Nice details from Alter… all the fine creases on her shorts, the stitched leather look for the holster…
Straps for her top are even there, though I’m not sure why you’d be looking at her from that angle :P
And let’s not forget her oppai
I’ve gotten to the point where it doesn’t phase me at all posting the oppai/low angle shots ^^;;
Details on the rifle are very nice too
Another hard to see part of the figure but they’ve gone and made sure the scope has all its various lasers/optics colored properly.
Fingernails weren’t missed either of course.
I think I took this next shot just ‘cuz I was fixated on the strap… which is what caused me to snap my Enterbrain yoko’s rifle ;_;
Now for a more complete look at the base…
Nice touch to round out the figure.
Full body comparison of my two scaled yokos.
I also really liked the max factory “real image” version but I think I’m gonna have to pass unless I can get some extra cash on hand. orz
In case you didn’t catch these reviews earlier this month~
- foobarbaz – another figure gets a 4 star rating ^^
- The Inferno Project – a shot with gift yoko to boot!
- 3D Complex – has more info on the source material this version is from, along with some extra pistol goodness
- Update: tier has a nice review up too!
Another winner from Alter. Only complaint I have is that I woulda liked her in 1/7 or 1/6 ^_^
