Having just got back from a trip overseas, Rin called me on my mobile just minutes after I have landed. She had wanted to visit the beach to test something out, which I had wondered what it was. Could have been one of her usual spell casting practices.
Energy was literally drained from me by the time I reached the beach and Rin was nowhere to be seen.
“Sorry to have let you wait” A female voice called out.
I turned and looked towards the direction of the voice; And there standing was Rin looking gorgeous in her red swimsuit.
Review of Tohsaka Rin from Alter
I had always wanted to get my hands on this figure ever since I saw super rats‘ pictures of her almost 2 years ago (!).
It was all sold out or out of manufacture in most of the online stores and I was very lucky to have spotted her during my spring trip to Japan. Even luckier was that I managed to get the cheapest out of the 3 I found in various stores.
The highest was going at ￥16,800 while I got mine at roughly ￥8,600.
Rin is a 1/6 Alter figure sculpted by Ikuma Kuramoto, who also did the sculpting for the Fate/Stay Night swimsuit girls series (The other being Saber and Sakura) by Alter. For this one, we have Rin looking gorgeous in a red swimsuit, a float hanging from her right wrist while she reveals her hair with her left hand. With such a lovely pose and beautiful bikini, she’s a winner.
Of course with mass produced figures, imperfection follows like a nasty cold. Her hair curls are rather on the sloppy side, and also there are some paint clips on her. But the paint clip’s probably due to me getting her at second-hand. But her curves and eyes will pretty much draw you back to the good points.
One thing to note though, that she’s in 1/6 scale, which I have to say it currently the largest in terms of scale size in my figure collection. Not that I mind though, as Rin is my favorite anime girl :)
