Alfin has suffered my first order cancellation. She’s a pleasant enough looking figure but it turns out that my wallet isn’t willing to part with the money required for her purchase.
Originally I was on the fence with Alfin, wondering if I should order her or not, eventually Rico over at PolyVinyl Crush convinced me that I did indeed want to purchase her and so I put in the pre-order, December 11th, 2009. However, in the months between I’ve reconsidered my position on Alfin, and while I feel she’s decent, I don’t feel I can justify her place in my collection.
Impulse purchase. I think I’ll blame Rico at PolyVinyl Crush for this as I do many of my purchases. She seems cute enough in the promo shots, though I don’t like her shoes (?) and she’s produced by Kotobukiya so… potential for fail.
Alfin is apparently an android of sorts from the Shining Force: Feather series. I can’t say she looks too much like an android but what do I know. Alfin’s 1/8th scale, 19 cm tall, has an MSRP of ¥7,800 / $89 CAD and will be released in March 2010.
