Strike Witches 2 Archive
Posted by Leah Bayer on December 6, 2013 | 1 Comment
I was really uninpressed but Alter’s Summer WonFest 2013 offerings, but it seems like that’s because they were saving all the good stuff for MegaHobby Autumn 2013! We got a veritable deluge of figures: swimsuit versions of Charlotte & Cecilia, Akane Isshiki from Vividred Operation, two Strike Witches, a gorgeous new Sora Kasugano, Asuka from Senran Kagura, and The Muse of Range Murata. Of course they had even more great figures, but we’ll be taking a look at the rest a bit later!
There was a whole lot to feast your eyes upon, but at the time we (obviously) only had event photography. Quick, “oh my god look at this figure!” event photography. But some time has passed, which means it’s time to sit back, relax, and browse some higher quality galleries of these gorgeous ladies. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but my money’s on Sora all the way. I mean…. that dress. She’s perfect!

After all this time… we might actually be nearing the end of Alter’s Strike Witches line! At least for the season one cast lineup. That’s right guys, Lynette Bishop is on the scene! Painted, sculpted, the whole nine yards. Though I don’t think this is the totally finished version, since the shading on her hair looks a little flat. To be honest she’s probably my least favorite Witch so my opinion of the sculpt reflects that: I’m not wowed.
I am, however, head over heels happy that the second version Yoshika they announced is actually a redo of her original sculpt, unlike second version Sanya! Ahh, finally, Yoshika can join my Witches and the whole crew will be here.

After many long years, we are almost at the end of Alter’s Strike Witches line. Yes, for real! It’s actually going to be finished! If you told someone that 3 or 4 years ago they’d probably laugh in your face because this seemed like something that would never come to fruition, but now we’re not only going to get the full main core (fingers crossed… just Lynette now!), but we’ve gotten second versions of some Witches and even characters from 2!
Francesca seems to be one of the most popular girls, so it’s odd that they waited so long to take her on. I loved her sculpt and I love her more painted: this is a line that doesn’t really seem “wow” until you’re actually looking at the figure in person. The detail is just astounding! I’m so happy that soon I’ll have all the girls.

Alter’s Strike Witches line has been immensely popular over the (many) years they’ve been working on the line, and a complete set is a rare thing to see. Mostly because the first two girls, Yoshika and Sanya, are absolutely insanely priced on the aftermarket. You’d be lucky to find either of them for $200 shipped! Compared to the ones floating around retail (or in some cases dipping under!) it seems a little absurd.
Thankfully Alter has realized it’s an issue for collectors and decided to do a second version of Sanya. Not quite as good as a re-release, but we’ll take what we can get! It seems like they’ll be doing something similar with Yoshika, but it’s listed as Yoshika 1.5 release which might mean they are actually going back to the old sculpt like they did with Sanada!

After a few rather lackluster months, the Hobby Japan scans are back on track! We have a pretty action-packed lineup for you this time around, with almost twice as many figures as we’ve been seeing the past few months. Though let’s start up with a bit of bad news: there’s rumors from these scans that figma Strength has been cancelled! Only rumors, but anyway, let’s get onto the good.
We’ve got lots of ladies for you, and finally the return of Good Smile Company & co in the scaled figure section. I don’t know why they went missing for so long but oh well, they’re back now with some shiny goodies. We’ve also got not one but TWO devils from the Seven Sins lineup, which is awesome because for the past few months it’s been nothing but art. So without any more delays, hit the jump and let’s get right to the good stuff!

Welcome to the return of the roundup! Sadly we here at Plastikitty got hit by a nasty spring flu so we’ve been out of commission in terms of the roundup for a few weeks, but now we’re back in business! Though technically it’s the roundup for the week of 3/29~4/4 we’re also featuring some of the best figures from the week before as well.
So what do we have in store? Tons of pretty ladies! In fact we’ve got releases from almost all the major manufacturers, including some that I have been really looking forward to. Check them all out after the jump!

I started collecting Alter’s Strike Witches line with the third release, Charlotte, and sadly I’ve been unable to complete the set since the first two (Yoshika and Sanya) are both outrageously expensive on the after-market. So I was thrilled when back in July Alter unveiled a second version of Sanya: the Rocket Booster edition! But the paint job left me wanting.
We’re getting a second preview now, and I am much happier! I still don’t love the coat but she comes with an alternate torso featuring her normal outfit along with a calmer face. Plus the antenna the first preview was missing! And the image of her with Eila, my favorite witch, looks just lovely! I really can’t wait for this release, and with only three unreleased girls (Perrine, Lynette, and Francesca) we are getting very close to wrapping up the series.
[UPDATE] Alter’s blog has shown off some official shots, as well as given us a date she is going up for order: the 3rd, tomorrow night!

Apparently Alter is so excited about these figures that they couldn’t wait two days until Wonder Festival to show us: no, we have to see them right now! Calm down their Alter, I know you like your Strike Witches but considering the snail’s pace that this line has moved it’s kind of shocking to get two at once. The first is the colored version of their Sanya version 2, complete with rocket booster! Personally I still prefer the version 1: I’m just not loving all the red in this one. However, she will come with an alternate body featuring her regular uniform which in my eyes should be much better!
Then we have a brand new sculpt: Perrine! Alter announced all of the Strike Witches girls from the first season something like 2 years ago, and we’re still missing 2 (Francesca and Lynette), and honestly I’m surprised Perrine got done before them–she’s certainly not the most popular girl, especially compared to Lynette, but I love her! Her sculpt looks adorable. Hey Alter… how about you also re-release Yoshika so I can have a full set? Please?
