    Tomopop Review: Alter's 1/8-scale Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke screenshot

    Like a lot of series, Strike Witches is one of those very popular shows that I somehow still haven't gotten around to watching completely. I've always enjoyed the character designs though, at least once I got used to the odd flight "suit" design, but the characters themselves always appealed to me.

    One in particular was the lovely Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke, who I took to from the moment I saw her. Those who know me know that shouldn't be a surprise, between the red hair and kemonomimi bent the series takes when the girls use their abilities. I've seen a number of figures released featuring her in particular, and it was Alter's take on the subject matter that I got my hands on. Click through to see if she flies high or I end up crying Mayday!

    Figure Name: 1/8-scale Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke
    Figure Maker: Alter
    Retail Price: ¥7,429
    Available at: HobbyLink Japan

    box shot

    Of course, we have to start with the requisite box shot. Overall, there's nothing particularly remarkable about her container. It's an appealing enough design, with a cloudy motif that certainly fits the series, and the front and back windows are very large, providing a nice look at Minna within. There are no side panels, however, instead giving us merely a shot of the character without any plastic in the way.

    front shot

    One thing I noticed in particular after opening was "Why does this have instructions?" I'd never seen a figure that was already completed but still came with directions on how to put things together. As it turned out, the instructions were more than necessary!

    gun shot

    While everything else was easy enough to figure out, slipping her gun into her grip turned out to be a complete nightmare. Presumably made for much smaller hands than mine, it turned out that you were required to remove the strap from the grip, slide it into her hand, then somehow manage to fit the strap back into the absolutely miniscule notch at the base, while somehow fitting your fingers between her sleeve and the grip itself. Needless to say, this took far longer than I would have liked, and I nearly gave up more than a few times. Yet, I forged onward, all for the sake of accurate photos!

    leg shot

    However, that wasn't the only concern. Sticking with the series' aerial theme, Alter managed to keep her lifted off of her base entirely to provide the illusion of flight. While I do have worries that this might lead to a leaner in the future, what with being propped up on only one leg, you can see that they at least took this into consideration, and she's fitted sturdily onto a nice solid metal rod instead. This should hopefully counteract any weight issues. Time will tell!

    propeller shot

    To continue along with the illusion, Alter has rather ingeniously crafted the propellers at the base of her legs. They can spin freely, and the paint job creates the sense of rotary blades in motion rather than simply making a blurry translucent disc. For that, I commend them!

    Should you choose to, there are also additional propellers that aren't in motion, and it's very easy to remove the caps on her legs to fit them in place instead of the default versions.

    base shot

    As for the base itself, there isn't anything particularly amazing about it, but it does fit the character with a nice translucent blue coloring. Plus, to add at least a little touch to the design, it provides some character stats such as her name, height and birthday.

    coat shot

    If you ask me, they've more than made up for the simplistic base with the amount of detail that went into her design. You can already see the level of effort that went into her gun and the mechanics of her legs, but everything about her uniform is very classy as well. They nailed the crisp militaristic look, and the painting is excellent as well. There aren't really any missed spots at all, and they did a nice job keeping the silver only within the boundaries of her buttons.

    side shot

    I'm really happy with the figure overall, and she's been a great introduction to Alter's work. With my only concern being the potential for leaning in the future, I'd have to absolutely recommend her to any fan of the series, without a doubt. Just remember not to rage too hard when trying to deal with attaching that gun!

    Since today is the first day of a brand-new year, 2012, I thought I would celebrate with some wacky BATMAN Foreign Comic Book Covers from around the World! Now, I'm not sure if this first image is CHINESE or KOREAN but I'm sort of leaning toward KOREA, ha! If anyone knows then please let me know. I don't mean to offend anyone, I'm just stupid and I only know how to read English, ha! But the cover is crazy beautiful!!

    The next two covers are bootlegs from Turkey called BATMEN! That one with the yellow cover that features the Joker, I have that "English" version, how funny! These are extremely RARE! The next two photos are not actually covers, but are a few pages from inside another foreign reprint comic book and these are from GREECE. I totally love their Greek FONT with the unique letters. Last, but not least, is a special ITALIAN version of a 1966 BATMAN TV Show Book. OK, I know that's not an actual comic book but it's still fun! Hey, do you live in another part of the world and have a few Batman comics from your country? If so, then please send us some pics, thanks!

    So many dolls; so little time.
    I just spent a few fun hours going through the doll stuff  that passed through my doors this past year. A fair amount of what is pictured went back out the same doors after I got bored, traded, or decided to 'reinvest' the funds. Some of what arrived isn't pictured probably because it hasn't even been photographed yet.
    The original image is 5000 pixels square at 300dpi. This one is very reduced but if you click on it a larger version will open. Can you identify everything? Can you find Waldo?
