The Angel from Hell

A lone figure stands on top of the building, unnoticed by the guards below. With guns in hands, the lone figure suddenly jumps off the edge of the building, twin guns blazing. In their confusion the guards never know what hits them, one by one they drop and by the time the lone figure landed, all the guards were down.

Standing up, this unknown assailant walks slowly into the warehouse, oblivious to the danger that waits inside, or does this person really know no fear. It’s other that should fear her, for she’s the Angel from Hell and no one can stand between her and the girl she’s trying to save, for Jo, Meg is everything to her.

OK I sucks at writing story haha, just trying something different, so I wrote something that Jo would do in-order to save Meg XD.

Anyway this figure of Jo from Alter, sculpted by Tanaka Touji was release quite a long time ago, in November 2005 to be exact. At the time I haven’t even started collecting figures yet, but I did watch the anime Burst Angel (Bakuretsu Tenshi) and have always like the character design in the anime. I manage to get this figure from a local forumer who was selling of some of his figures, the price was cheap and she was in good condition, the rest is history and one more figure is added to my growing collection. Now all I need to do is find Alter Meg and the duo will be complete.

A very well sculpted and painted figure with no noticeable flaw. The detail is good, with her wind blown jacket and scarf giving her a more dynamic look. The jacket does makes her back heavy though, which makes it impossible for her to stand without the base unless the jacket is taken off. There’s one very bad flaw though but only visible if the jacket is taken off.

This is the bad flaw, a very visible seamline on the joint between her arm and shoulder, but she looks better with the jacket on anyway so it’s ok I guess. At least the tattoo is detail enough. But with the jacket on only the arm tattoo is visible, hmmm I totally forgot to take a shot of the back tattoo XD.

Trying out something new with the following two shots. I have seen some pictures in Replicant Works where there’s a reflection of the figure in the shots. So wanted to try it out, and somehow it works but only if using black background though :) .

Overall she’s a very nice figure and the quality is as expected for something from Alter. Not sure whether it’s easy to get her now, but I am glad that I manage to buy her off another forumer, and save me some money in the process :) .

A shot of all the girls with guns figures that I have, and coincidentally all of them uses two guns and except for Natsuki, the rest are all from Alter.
