It's been just a bit short of a year since I pre-ordered Laura and her sudden release hurt my wallet quite a bit. On the other hand, I guess I technically saved money since the Japanese yen isn't a retarded powerhouse anymore. Oh well, at least she's finally released.
From what I heard, a bunch of Alter's figures were delayed because of some sort of quality issue from sharing a factory with Good Smile Company. Thankfully, Alter is a perfectionist so in the end I still received a figure that looks almost identical to the promo shots.
