[Alter] Maeda Keiji

I got my Maeda Keiji last week from CW Toys. As any collector with a nice new camera would do, I took pictures as soon as I got home from Greenhills. And as any collector who is swamped with work would do, I'm posting the pictures a 6 days after I took them.

Better late than never.

One thing I noticed was that the boxed figure was HEAVY. Upon opening, I found out that it was mainly the umbrella that was heavy.

Scantily dressed with only the open kimono to show you that she's supposed to be a samurai, I was not disappointed with her. Alter did a good job with the sculpt and all the fine details -- I guess that's partly the reason why I'm completing the Hyakka Ryouran line.

Those boobs.

The bikini holding her together is actually made of rubber...or at least it feels like it.

A night shot with my favorite prop: our wall lamp.

And now with a new-found prop: some "Zen" stuff in our garden

 Did I mention that her umbrella is huge?
