Alter has just released preview shots of their beautiful and lively Merry Nightmare figure from the anime, “Yumekui Merry.”
While the “Merry” anime wasn’t a huge success relative to other shows, what made it noteworthy for me was the beautiful art and fluid animation rarely found on anime these days. The character design in particular was very eye-catching and like in the anime, Alter’s Merry evokes the same kind of feeling.
So far, I can’t find any faults with the figure as her expression perfectly captures Merry’s active and lively nature. The painting is excellent as always and the sculpt exquisite.
The only thing that worries me about the figure is that it’s only standing on one leg. Hopefully Alter found a way to make her stable despite the pose.
Pre-orders for Alter’s Merry will start tomorrow. No pricing details given yet but it shouldn’t be too expensive given the size and lack of extravagance of the figure.
