Mio Akiyama by Alter

Release Date: January 2010, re-release december 2010
Price: 7140 yens
Size: 20 cms, scaled 1/8
My Rating: 10/10

Recently aquired this beauty and i am all but too happy!!
Made by Alter, i previously thought this figure wasnt that good looking, but that was due to the official shot (picture above) being kinda on the yellowish side. But thats not the case at all, this figure looks beautifull and is full of life.

The bass is masterfully reproduced from the real life Fender model, with actual soft strings as if they could be played, the facial expression is dead on character with beautifull eyes and flushed cheeks. Her long smooth hair are floating in the air matching the pose hinting that she's in the middle of an energetic moment of a tune.

Also for those interested in aquiring one, a 2nd release is planned for the coming december.

Mio and Mugi get!!!!

Mugi-chan is such a little devil isnt she? :p
I received my Mio and Tsumugi figma yesterday afternoon and i have to say i love them. Both are very high quality and looking so adorable!!!!

Mugi comes with 3 very adorable faces, a smilling normal one, a blushing *happy* one and her very cheerfull seen in the picture above. She comes with her keyboard wich looks very sweet, full of details making it look almost usable.

Mio has the smilling face, a flushed almost crying face and the shy *omg* seen in the picture above. Her bass looks sweet however the shiny finish is slightly warped and the bag can actually be used to store her instrument in. Both comes with a flexible strap so it can hold on her shoulder. However the coloring of her hair seem to have stained one of her hands, so be mindfull of this if you get her.

Mugi can be aquired here.
