been a fan of Ghost in the Shell, movies and both series (come
on #3!), and especially
Motoko, for some time now. And how in the world could
anyone resist their own Tachikoma? Well, in my case it
was missing the first release altogether... and the
second. Funny thing; there seems to have been a third
release that no one reported on. So instead of paying
ridiculously stupid Ebay prices, I got mine from a sane seller
at cost. Le gasp.
Box pictures are made of glare.
That's just how it is. One thing that I do need to bring
up is how gloriously this was packaged. All I needed to
do to open it was cut the tape. All I needed to do was cut the
tape. No twenty minutes of fighting
industrial-strength twist ties, another ten trying to figure
out what the hell is attached to one piece that's keeping it
fused to the plastic, another fifty pieces of hidden tape or
little clear rubber bands... just tape holding the box closed,
then holding two pieces of plastic together. Cut the
tape and it comes out. Amazing.
Clearly I am already having a lot of fun with this figure.
