Alter Yoko Littner – Mysterious Bounty Hunter

DSC04381

Alter brings us, yet, another gem with their newly released Yoko Littner.  She is officially known as Yoko Littner the Mysterious Bounter Hunter (謎の賞金稼ぎ ヨーコ・リットナー), or so I think, but I’ll just call her Yoko like any normal person would.

Yoko is one of the main character from the popular anime series Gurren Lagann, which I haven’t had the chance to watch yet.  Not knowing much about the character, I’ll skip ahead to the figure itself. ^^;

Alter’s Yoko was released in late July and retails for ¥7,800.

She is listed as a 1/8 scale figure, but her size and amazing details makes her look like a 1/7 scale instead.

Kuramoto Ikuma is the mastermind behind this beautiful figure.  I will start keeping track of the sculptors now. ^^

Overall, as expected of Alter, the figure’s sculpt, paint job, and attention to detail are stunning.  Alter just landed in the #1 spot for making the best figures in my mind.

I think Alter just brought Yoko figures to a whole new level.

I believe this is the first time I’ve seen Alter figures with a dioramic looking base…they should do this more often.  ‘Tis one of the reason why I prefer GoodSmile figures.

My favourite part about this figure is Yoko’s face.  Look at the confidence in those eyes; sheer determination.

My love for her increases everytime I look at her.  Beautiful.

It’s not Yoko without some fan-service.  Unzipped hot pants and bikini top anyone?

I’ve read that the rifle on Koto’s Yoko is one of the best out there.

I’m a huge fan of girls with huge weapons.  Absolutely love her rifle.

I’ve lost count of how many figures I have with pink finger nails.  Seems to be a popular colour.

Didn’t realize there was a crack until I was sorting through the photos.  “orz

    It’s a great figure. I can understand why the hair-pin isn’t there for this version, but that’s Yoko’s trade-mark, in the end.

    And dude, you need to watch Gurren Lagann. It’s THE shonen series, as I’ve covered before :)

    • 2 T.I.P. 08/06/2009 at 08:21

      LOL, I didn’t realize she’s missing the hairpin. ^^;; I’m taking about the chopstick in her hand.

      I really need to watch Gurren Lagann. I’ll also add you to my blogroll if you don’t mind. ^^

      • 3 Guy 08/06/2009 at 08:26

        I know you’re talking about the chopstick. I’m saying, in addition, that she’s missing her third most iconic feature ;)
        The first being the underboobs, the second being the rifle.

        And go ahead, and thanks :)
        There are a lot of series I’ve not yet watched, so the fact I’ve watched Gurren Lagann is almost a lucky shot, heh. But it’s a must watch. Episode 4 is drawn in a meh-ish manner, live through it, cause it picks up again.

        • 4 T.I.P. 08/06/2009 at 12:26

          Ah, I see. I think my level of interest in Gurren Lagann just increased by 500% after receiving this figure, so I’ll definitely watch this soon. ^^

        • 5 Asian Ed 08/06/2009 at 17:15

          For the purpose of this figure the lack of skull hairpin works since it’s her “adult” version. She only had the hairpin in her younger iteration and had shed it when she grew up. :)

    So warm picture ! I love the last ! Congratulation for this beautiful review !

  3. 10 Q 08/06/2009 at 09:38

    Pink fingernails – don’t we all have them naturally? ^^

    That’s one fierce Yoko by Alter indeed. I find it cool how the revolver can be removed though.

    • 11 T.I.P. 08/06/2009 at 12:42

      Hmm…when you put it that way, I have to agree. But seeing as many figures don’t bother with their nails being painted, I just naturally assumed it’s nail polish. :P

  4. 12 icyfawkes 08/06/2009 at 10:10

    Ara ara~

    i kinda dropped her off my list…now im regretting it :(

    ill see if i can still get her…

    gotta say i didnt think it would be THAT detailed!

    poison!

  5. 14 Kanon 08/06/2009 at 12:53

    Wow, she is so detailed and amazing! I never noticed she had THIS much detail, that’s awesome ^^ This Yoko looks like one of the best Yoko figures out there. Lovely photos, too. They do her a lot of justice ^^

    • 15 T.I.P. 08/06/2009 at 13:46

      Thanks Kanon. ^^

      I knew she was going to be awesome from the promo photos. She is simply stunning in the flesh. I don’t think many of us expected her to be this detailed.

  6. 16 Asian Ed 08/06/2009 at 17:10

    Another awesome Yoko figure! I opted not to get this one, but do have the Real Image Version on order for later this year…

    Oh yes, the gun from Koto Yoko is one of the most impressive I’ve seen. The action actually moves, the magazine can be pulled out, a rifle stand can be pulled down, and the whole thing comes apart.

    It also includes parts so that it can be made into an SMG with a larger banana clip. On the subject of the clip, each provided clip includes the internal details. You can see topmost round in the clip. If you pull the bolt back, you can see inside the chamber and the bullet waiting to be loaded. Even the rear battery pack has the energy cell details.

    It’s a shame that most of the detail is hidden when the gun is fully assembled. :(

    • 17 Guy 08/06/2009 at 17:14

      That’s the hallmark of the geek, to gush over details that are small and almost never come to light.

      For sure, such details would amaze even “Mundanes” when exposed to them – I paint miniatures, and most people can appreciate the attention to detail, but they don’t care that much :)

      And it’s not a slam, my blog has the word “Geek” twice in its name, heh.

    • 18 T.I.P. 08/08/2009 at 15:04

      The details are there to impress those who value such an effort and wow those who didn’t know such an effort was made. It would be interesting to see how the Real Image Yoko turns out to be.

    • 19 jamblee 10/01/2009 at 15:37

      They should just relese a scaled Anti-material Rifle replica. It would be a blast.

  7. 20 Ninjovee 08/06/2009 at 20:54

    *dropped off from figure.fm*
    Lovely, lovely photos! Bounty Hunter Yoko is definitely one of the most epic Yoko figures I’ve seen. Too bad I didn’t have money at the time to consider pre-ordering her.

    I like your blog! Is it alright to add you to my blogroll? ^^

  8. 26 enrius 08/07/2009 at 11:33

    That’s a heck of a figure! Maybe I’m weird but I really like figures with their fingernails painted instead of leaving out blank.

  9. 28 Saku 08/08/2009 at 18:05

    Nice photos ^^. What camera + lens do you use btw ?

  10. 30 Jamaipanese 08/10/2009 at 23:34

    awesome pictures of an awesome figure.

    I bought one, it’s prolly on it’s way to me now. I hope it arrives safely!

  11. 32 Wolfheinrich 08/11/2009 at 00:51

    I am catching up on the blogroll again, nice Yoko. Still don’t know a thing about her, it’s down in the to do list.

  12. 34 paradigmshift 08/11/2009 at 00:54

    Awesome shoot. I just finished up with mine after getting her about a week ago. Didn’t take as many pics as you did. Sucks that there was that one defect on her coat for you. Maybe some krazy glue with fix that up?

    • 35 T.I.P. 08/11/2009 at 03:45

      Thanks. The crack doesn’t bother me at all, especially since I broke Fate’s arm 5 seconds after taking her out of the box on the same day. I was too pre-occupied to worry about her coat. ^^;;;

      It’s at the back anyways, not like I’m gonna turn her around and look at her ass. ^^;;

      I go by the rule of “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!” nowadays.

  13. 36 Blowfish 08/15/2009 at 15:01

    Shes such an awesome figure and I totally agree that shes more of a 1/7 figure.The Detail on the figure is great but like you pointed out her face is what deals the seal. Such a lean,mean expression is pure gold

    Haha so Im not the only one discovering the figures flaws in the pictures for the first time ^^

  14. 39 Optic 08/27/2009 at 05:44

    Pink finger nails = Pretty hands. xD
    I don’t have the Alter one so I’m not gonna debate which one has a better gun but indeed the Koto gun is more customizable.

    Great pictures.
    We are in same boat, I haven’t even watched the series yet but the Yoko craze was enough to get myself one. lol

  15. 43 jamblee 10/01/2009 at 15:32

    What the hell!? She should get a five! And I think her gun is better, as it has a nice hevy metalic feeling (the only one like that asside banpresto). Kotobukiya, while more detailed is a bit superfluous and looks just like plastic. In the end, It’s all about the figure, ne? Of course, the best and naturall way to present Yoko is with her riffle, however, dear companies, make it look like this one. The whole figure is just epic and flawless, Congrats!

    • 44 Tommy 10/02/2009 at 13:27

      Agreed, I really liked the metalic finish to it as well; but that’s purely personal preference. ;)
      As for the score at foo-bar-baz, he doesn’t give that many 5/5 in his reviews.
