Late last year, I purchased a new mirrorless camera for my day to day photography in the form of Fujifilm’s X-T10. I purchased it with the 16-50mm F2.5-5.6 kit and I also bought the 27mm F2.8 prime “pancake” lens. I was really impressed with the camera’s performance and this is the first time I was able to test it in figure photography. My first subject behind this new camera was Alphamax’s 1/8 figure rendition of Alisa Ilinichina Amiella. She’s from the RPG game God Eater Burst and was originally released November of last year (2015). I already have her for quite some time now and she’s mostly sitting in my desk.
Figure looks absolutely gorgeous as expected from Alphamax and artist 2% (sculptor). She’s a bit problematic at first due to his large weapon that mostly occupies a lot of display space. But once you find the perfect spot for her, it’ll make that spot the center of attention to anyone. She’s actually a distraction sometimes specially when I’m working. There’s no day I would not look and appreciate the top notch details and amazing presentation of the figure. She’s also “partially” cast-offable, particularly her skirt, so there’s that just in case you want her to have a different look. She’s definitely one of the best looking figures of 2015.
