The box doesn't have any interesting features.
"Magipulation" version. This is what is printed inside the box. I wasn't entirely sure if it was a real word, but according to Google it seems to be something that was mentioned in Imperishable Night. Now that I think about it, the box's design doesn't seem to match with Alice at all. Or maybe Griffon is being clever and making it resemble the Makai or something.
The stand makes her very tall.
Alice isn't making much of an expression. I noticed that her bangs covered her eyes slightly, but it isn't something that bothers me too much.
The Grimoire of Alice. I happen to like the fact that Griffon decided to make the pages look worn and dirty to show its age. However, I'm not too fond on how small and off center the keyhole is.
Alice isn't doing anything with her left hand. Actually, she isn't really doing anything aside from floating. No wait, if she's just floating then why are her ribbons flowing like that? Oh well, I suppose it's just magic; it doesn't have to make sense.
The stand goes into a naughty area.
Oh man, these boots. I love this type of footwear and it looks quite nice on Alice. But if you look in the picture in the right you'll see that the shoelace is missing on her left foot. Griffon's QUALITY control at its finest.
The base isn't that great either. It's just the normal from Griffon except it's white instead of black. Very disappointing when you consider Youmu and Remilia's bases on their special versions. You can't remove Alice from the base either.
She also comes with Shanghai!
You can already see some crude paintwork on Shanghai in these pictures. The small size probably makes it hard to paint perfectly, but that doesn't excuse the random white lines on her dress. I wonder if the extra doll set will suffer from the same problems?
At least her lance looks cool. Shanghai also comes with another longer clear pole if you wish to display her at a greater height. The downside is that the longer pole makes Shanghai wobble from the slightest vibration.
The paint job on Alice seems better than what Griffon usually produces. Possibly due to the fact that this is a special version. The only major paint error that I found on Alice are these black spots in the picture to the right. You can't really notice them due to where they are though.
Malice Cannon ready to fire!
Overall, she's an okay figure. Is she worth the high price? Not at all, but I still got her because I like the character. I wouldn't say she's a bad figure either. It's just the price tag and Griffon's reputation that make people steer away from this figure. I don't blame them either.
Oh, I suppose I should include shots of what's under her dress as well. I don't normally do this for characters that I have a large amount of affection to, but I'll make an exception this time.
Aw yeah. So hawt.
