Hoshizora Rin 1/7 - March Version ~ AlterHoshizora Rin 1/7 - March Version ~ AlterReview

Hiya everybody! :D

It's me once again, with another exciting review.
This one will be about the newest Rin figure by Alter ITEM #549455
Just like with Hanayo I have been waiting for this one since forever!
And she didn't disappoint me at all. <3


To start this off we'll have a look at Rin's box.
Like many other times Alter went with a clear box for this cutie, so you get a good look at her the moment you get it in your hands.
It doesn't have anything special going on otherwise. Her name and several flowers and petals are printed on all sides. The backside isn't transparent, it features a close-up of Rin-chan. :D
Her box is a bit wider than Hanayo's because of her pose.

Top and bottom in a Spoiler because they aren't anything special at all.

Rin-chan can't wait anymore, so here she is!
In all her cheerful cuteness. :)

She sports the same base as Hanayo. Simple, but cute and fitting the theme!

After the overview we'll head into all the great details this figure has to offer. Personally I totally prefer this Rin over the old one. ITEM #236203 This one has a better costume, more detail and I prefer her pose too, even though I'm in love with everything catish. x3

Rin's face isn't as soft as Hanayo's, but she looks really happy and full of energy.
Just as squishable, lol, and totally Rin. ^^
Her hair is beautifully shaped and colored. Redheads are love~ xD It also has details, as much as short hair can have I think. There's also a seamline on top of her head, which isn't visible from the front.

In this next part we'll take closer looks at Rin's wardrobe!
Her outfit isn't as frilly, girlish and cute as Hanayo's, but it has other neat and great details.
To be honest, I actually prefer Rin's outfit a tiny bit more. :)
Especially the color combination is lovely.

Rin-chan’s top doesn’t have a lacey part like her best friends, she has a Kimono collar instead. The golden buttons on Rins top are sculpted perfectly, just like the wirey ornaments and strings. All the golden lines – on the top, skirt and sleeves – are painted cleanly. Same goes for the flower petals on her skirt, boots and sleeves. Just superb.
I love the color combo of white, gold, some green, dark blue and rose sooo much. I prefer it over Hanayo’s colors a tiny bit more. I guess I prefer less rose, lol.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/18/2098632.png

Look at the flow of that skirt, loving the sculpt of it. I’m not just a lover of ribbons, same goes for awesome looking folds and creases too, lol. More about the boots later. x)
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/18/2098625.jpeg

Rin’s magical wand looks exactly the same as Hanayo’s, just with different colors. Same goes for the flower blob under the big beautiful white one. The small flowers on her sleeves look very good again. It also has a bit of glitter all around. This wand lies in her hands pretty securely, but a little peg would have still been great.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/18/2098626.pnghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/18/2098629.png

On to Rin’s sleeves which are beautifully sculpted and colored. Another fantastic color transition. Ruffles and folds look wonderful yet again and capture the movement after her little jump or dance – or whatever Rin is doing xD – perfectly. You can see more of the flowers and patterns on these pictures too. Only thing I don’t get is how they stay up where they belong, seeing as they are pretty wide at the top. They don’t have a ribbon tied at the end of them or something, but maybe that’s just hidden inside holding everything in place??? Who knows. :D
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/18/2098628.pnghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/18/2098631.png

The sewn together Kimono sleeves are present on Rin as well. Why you do this Alter? Don’t think it would have been hard for you to make a little opening there after all the other greatness we’ve seen on this (and other figures). xD Totally not a serious flaw at all, just a bit weird to me.
And as I learned there are some kinds of Kimono sleeves that are indeed closed like this. So good job Alter! =0 Thank you for the explanation BROKEN-TOYBOX ^^
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/18/2098637.png

Rin’s got some great thighs, must be all the dancing and jumping around all the time, lol.
I adore the design of her boots. As you have seen on previous pictures already the little knots on top and the cords are sculpted pretty detailed, even though they are so small.
Rin’s skirt seems to be even shorter then Hanayo’s! Though it more probably is just the pose that only makes it seem that way, haha. So I gotta hide that booty in a Spoiler. X3

Hanayo and Rin~ :D
They go together sooo well. Two cute beauties. <3

Do you love Rin? Then you should totally get this figure of hers. She is a little masterpiece and would make a great addition to any collection. Especially if you love idol figures, you can’t go wrong with this one (or any Alter idol figure really).
If I could have only chosen one of the March versions I would have gone for Rin-chan, because overall I prefer her a tiny bit – sorry Hanayo! >w< But they are both beautiful Scales and I’m happy to own them both. :)
Now give us Sunshine!! girls Alter. Please! xD

broken-Toybox2 anos atrás#35460840Very nice review (Hanayo's too)! :3
I'm really glad I caved and ordered them too (though customs's still keeping them prisoner >_<).
One thing I want to add though is that Kimono sleeves aren't necessarily all open, but quite a few (especially those reminiscent of Furisode sleeves, which I guess these are too) are indeed sewn shut leaving only small openings for the arms/hands. I can imagine quite a number of reasons why that makes sense too, so that's not really Alter being neglectful (quite the opposite).^^

Thanks! :D
Well, something new learned then. I didn't know there are that kind of Kimono sleeves as well. I couldn't imagine Alter being like that anyways, but as I had no clue... xD Thanks for clearing that up for me. :)
And I hope your girls will be with you very soon, so you can fully enjoy them! :D
