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.
