Preorder of the year: Rider with motorcycle
26 May 2010 22:22:07
This is a big decision for me – to spend nearly 300 bucks on a figure^__^
I think I go crazy like that once in a year or two. So I had an urge to tell the world that I’m getting this stunning hentai beauty: Rider on a Vespa bike!
I fell for her at first sight, when I saw her in a photo report from summer 2009 WonFest. Then I knew she was a resin kit, so I gave up. Kits are not my specialty, not in the least ^___^
But I couldn’t stop dreaming. And then about a month ago I stumbled upon her, assembled and painted, on a E2046 site.
I love her pose and her boobs. This Rider is hentai all right, but somehow not explicit. Her “toplessness” is, like, natural, like she is meant to be like this. It distinguish her from other hentai figures, whose tits and butts are exposed with some, I’d say, flatulence and affectation.
This Rider just looks like a girl crazy enough to take a night ride topless, to “aerate her boobs” :D
Anyway,185$ with 79$ shipping is usually way too much for me, so there was a month of hesitation. But I also knew that this astonishing Rider would become a real gem of my collection, the one that will demand a shelf of her own (maybe even with tap lights :P).
Moreover, for the sake of decency, E2046 offered their self-made jeans training bra for her (now my parents won’t complain). So I made up my mind.
This pictures you see here are not quite the same as those on a figure’s page in a database. E2046 provide their own painting. So the remarkable tattoo on Rider’s back and her face paint job are different here
I like E2046 face because it is true enough to the original Rider.
Great floating hair
She is about 170 cm tall and rather heavy – about 3 kg. So I threw in more then 30$ for EMS shipping, rather then SAL. I thought that if I’m OK with spending 250$ on her, 30$ more won’t make a great difference, and she will arrive safely to my door.
BTW, I’m not expecting her soon. At first she will be shipped from Vispo to E2046, then they’ll need to assemble and paint her. Anyway, when she arrives, I’ll borrow a camera from someone and make a video report about her. I’ll start with unpacking.
The dark side is money, of course. As I committed to buy Rider I had to make some difficult choices. Far the well Fraulein Revoltech Mari, anime ver. BRS, POP Strong World Nico Robin, Brook and Hijikata Toushiro!
The good thing is all figures I mentioned, except maybe BRS, will most likely be re-released. And, anyway, I have no regrets.
Along with RAH Ginko Mushishi (who costed me even more then 300$) this Rider will become my very favorite and treasured possession.
