There are a few companies who make figure from ATLUS game characters. One of them is ALTER. In my opinion Alter works are always superb. The figure I reviewed today is one of the heroines in Persona 4. She’s Amagi Yukiko. She’s also the first character of P4 who is made into the figure. The version I reviewed is ATLUS D SHOP exclusive limited version.
This figure is released on December 2008 but I got her on April 2009. Because my agent got the item very late. The ATLUS D SHOP limited version will also come with the perfume but I didn’t get it because I ordered it late. I got Jack Frost strap instead. (I wonder that this strap will come with all orders from ATLUS D SHOP. Not only give for people who bought this figure.)
The perfume for who order limited edition of figure.
Jack Frost strap’s on the right side of figure box.
The different between the standard and limited edition is the fan pattern in the package. The standard one has the pink paper fan pattern. The limited one has the peacock feather fan pattern.
Left: standard version. Right: limited version.
Figure is in the white and yellow box. Yellow is the theme color for this Persona installment. (P3 color is blue.) The TV sticker on the box say that figure’s limited edition. There isn’t any Jack Frost sticker like the previous reviewed Gwendolyn. Maybe this item is sold by ATLUS so no need to attach the license sticker.
The instruction to put the fan in her hand, attach the glass to her face and attach her to the base
Alter always do great job. The figure is well sculpted. The paint job is superb. The pattern on the skirt’s looked sharp. The fan is full of detailed. The base is made from clear yellow plastic with the P4 logo screened on it.
The face is beautiful and look like the original design. I really like her lip. Although the face are well made but the glass is not that great. The lens aren’t completely clear and there are some blemish on them. Paint job is acceptable. I also found out that it’s very hard the put the glass on her face in proper position. I almost broke it two times.
Yukiko is also a one of beautiful kits by ALTER. Unlucky this figure was sold only on ATLUS D SHOP so it’s very hard to buy if you’re people outside Japan. I’m sure that P4 fan will like her when they see her. The bad point is the glass. It’s not that bad (and you can choose not to put it on her face.) but I thought it’s lower the kit overall quality.
