Arrived on Monday morning, Kotobukiya’s version of Elwyn from Shining Wind the PS2 game/13 episode Anime. Elwyn is a member of Weiss Ritter, a band of mercenaries who roam the world of Liberia under the command of “Proxy Leader” Souma Akizuki who is a soul blader from the “Real World”. Elwyn is a archer and is depicted as the “typical blonde” character throughout the Anime series.
This is the thrid figure I have purchased from kotobukiya from the Shining Wind range and as always I am impressed. The care in sculpting the outfits has produced a stunning figure in soft greens with gold lining, details do stand out like the sculpted leaves that make up elwyns dress to the little garter on her left leg. The figure stands on a plain green base which is perhaps a little too plain and could benefit from embossed titles or symbols to make it more interesting, on a side note perhaps providing the “Soul Blades” that can be drawn from these characters could be included with the figures. Elwyn stands around 21cm tall and comes in a small window frame box decorated with artwork and Shining Wind symbols.
