Finally a new post and some pictures of Hattori Hanzo! I had a few health concerns lately and I have to rest a lot. Ali helped me with the pictures, well almost all of the pictures were taken by Ali because I’m not supposed to move around, I just basically watched and took a couple from where I was seated. We decided to take some outdoor shots so I don’t have to put up background and stuff ^^;
I wasn’t really that interested to get Hattori Hanzo before. But I’m glad I did because she’s an awesome figure. She may not be as pretty as Yagyu Jubei but her overall design is still very cool. Meganekko fans must be really pleased.
Her pose is somewhat unconventional. I was supposed to put her on top of a big rock but it’s just a bit difficult to take pictures of her on uneven surfaces. There’s an instruction sheet included in the box to help you attach the thin metal rod underneath the skirt then to the base. The base is just a white plastic one just like Jubei’s. I think they’ll use the same base for all the Samurai Girls for consistency perhaps. I had second thoughts on displaying her on the top portion of my open shelf because she looks wobbly. I shook the fig a few times before I’m convinced that she wouldn’t fall off. ^^;
The major factor that made me decide to get this figure is the costume. Just look at the skirt, as you can see, it’s very intricate and well made. The metallic shade is really a nice touch. But I almost injured myself when I took Hattori Hanzo from the box because of her hair and pointy skirt so be careful.
Another nice detail is her mesh stocking which I guess somewhat adds appeal and color to the figure.
In this photo and the cover photo as well, you’ll see the same mesh detail on her neck which matches her stocking. This one is a nice angle of her holding that huge shuriken-like weapon that she’s aiming to throw. I think they could have made her look more feisty but I think she’s convincing with a weapon.
And here’s a shot of her awesome footwear and oh I guess a little pantsu shot wouldn’t hurt. ^^; No shimapan here, just a plain, no nonsense underwear that a Samurai girl would wear. Lol.
A shot of her bandaged hand holding her weapon.
Another photo which shows her full meido warrior outfit.
A closer look at her backside. Like Jubei, she has ropes too. She also has a scroll and a meido headband is used to nicely cover the seam on top of her head.
Hattori Hanzo is another fantastic figure from Alter. I am very pleased with all the cool details and the sculpt. Do check her out if you find her available. ^^
