This is my first time unboxing these. I remember that when a local store was doing some great sales a couple of years ago, I picked them up.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576216.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576217.jpeg

Assembling them was quite an adventure!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576218.jpeg

These two are very cute to display together with their similar color palettes!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576219.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576220.jpeg

From some angles the glasses look a bit too thick, but I feel like I can't really complain about that as these are prize figures.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576221.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576229.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576222.jpeg

Nakajima's gun is pretty detailed!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576226.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576223.jpeg

I like her fierce expression as well! And the silver on the legs is very shiny!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576224.jpeg

From a bit of a lower angle, you can see a lot of the panties!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576228.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576227.jpeg

There are quite a lot of details sculpted and painted on the Striker Units.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576225.jpeg

Overall, decent and affordable prize figures if you also want some more uncommon Witches in your collection!

Strike Witches 2 Toy's Works Collection Niitengomu! complete set of rubber straps ENTRY #41337

I originally got a full box of these straps in late 2019 and mentioned them in this BLOG #45922 loot blog. As I was already busy with packing for my move to a new place, I did not open them. It's time to do so now!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576231.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576232.jpeg

The design of the box is very cute and colorful and shows the artwork that has been used for the straps.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576233.jpeg

As I ordered a second hand and confirmed complete set, all the smaller boxes had already been opened to check which one was inside.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576234.jpeg

The smaller box is cute as well!

Here we go with pictures of all of them, what I love the most is how in-character all of these straps are, both in poses and expressions.

Strike Witches (2) - Perrine H Clostermann - 1/8 scaled figure made by Alter ITEM #78646

I bought this figure in late 2019 as part of a big group order (see BLOG #45922 ), as my earlier buying of Perrine's Nendoroid ITEM #323991 / BLOG #42788 made me realize I didn't have any bigger sized figures of her even though I really adore her in the show!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576252.jpeg

Typical box of the Alter Strike Witches.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576255.jpeg

She is looking great! I love how her glasses look and the movement in her hair. Only downside is that her neck looks a bit too long in some angles.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576253.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576258.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576259.jpeg

The gun has some great detailing.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576256.jpeg

The low-rise panties + pantyhose combination looks amazing on this figure!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576254.jpeg

I would make this my banner here if it would be a better fit!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576257.jpeg

Striker Units looking great as well, this figure is quickly rising to the top of my favorite Strike Witches scaleds!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576260.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/12/06/2576261.jpeg

victorviper7 months ago#88226498I had to go digging through my email to see when I bought the Koto Lynette, and it was back in 2011. At that point I don't think Alter's Lynette had even been teased, but when the promo shots for the Alter figure came out, I decided that I liked it enough to double-dip.
It's hard to pick a favorite Witch, but it would be either Lynette or Perrine. They are really quite similar in many ways, which is probably why they get shipped together so often :).


Aaah, I didn't realize you were already so early in buying the Koto Lynette! It seems like you don't have ITEM #396977 , I was positively surprised with the quality of mine. I will be covering the SW bunnies in these blogs when I also come across them during my unpacking. :)

Hehe, both are very good choices! My fav remains Sanya, but I have a very soft spot for Erica and Francesca as well. :)

Maakie7 months ago#88006809Hehe, my love for Strike Witches will never die! <3
Yeah, the Koto ones are nice, but it's very visible how the amount of detail in the guns and Striker Units is just a lot lower than everything by Alter. I can't remember if we ever discussed this, but is Lynette also your favorite Witch? Is that why you got both?

konakona717 months ago#87966284Glad to see that Strike Witches love is alive and well.
Thanks for sharing!

victorviper7 months ago#87966286I don't think there is any question that the Alter witches are generally better than their Koto counterparts, but the Koto Lynette is pretty good, and she's the only member of the 501st where I got both the Alter and the Koto figures.
The adjustable mounting arm on the Koto figures is a plus, too. It takes some effort to get the figure positioned just right, but it adds a little bit of display flexibility.

Tjilp7 months ago#87900928Those straps are so adorable <3 Really cute posing and expressions!Yahallo7 months ago#87901548I don't know anything about Strike Witches but I totally agree with you!
The Charlotte strap (ITEM #94753) specifically, is very pretty!!


I'm very happy with them! All of them will be displayed on the same shelf as where I display figures of the same character. :) I really recommend these straps for everyone that likes the character (designs)!

victorviper7 months ago#87956043That Alter Perrine is still one of my favorite figures. Her pose and body language is so Perrine-like, and I love the option of having her wield either the rapier or the Bren machine gun.

I was so impressed with her! And yeah officially you aren't supposed to have both on display like I do, but I just really wanted to see both when I have her on display!

I think for me this figure is in my top 3 of SW figures, with the other 2 being Francesca and Erica both by Alter. I recently also ordered my first Kotobukiya SW ITEM #19914 by the way. :)
