Never would have thought I would really buy Kotobukiya Elwyn, saw on my wish list but wasn’t really a must get at the time. Her looks kinda grows on me though, especially when I was holding and seeing one close-up but still manage to control myself from buying her.
But when Hobby Search put her into bargain, I can’t help getting her, 1 she’s was cheap, 2 she’s a nice figure, a dangerous combination XD. Speaking of bargain figures, manage to grab a few more recently, 1 have arrived but with my friend. The other 2 just shipped from HLJ, and one of them is Danny Choo’s favourite figure XD, both at 60% discount ^_^.
This version Elwyn is from the Shining Wind series, not really sure what’s the difference between Shining Wind and Shining Tears Elwyn though. I really like the pose and sculpt of this one, very moe look <3. She comes with a plain green base and her bow, guess Kotobukiya want to make a standard base for this series since my Blanc Neige base looks the same as well.
Pretty good details on the wing on her head and her costume.
Her face, one of her feature that I am attracted to.
Both girls together <3
Don’t really plan to collect the whole Shining Wind series, I am not much of a set collector anyway, but Blanc Neige and Elwyn does looks good though. Kureha is another one of Shining Wind character that I like, but since I already have the Max Factory version, which I think it’s the best looking one, don’t plan to add another one to my collection.
