Motoko Kusanagi by Alpha
A little known company called Alpha produced this Motoko Kusanagi figure of Masamune Shirow's "Ghost in the Shell" anime and manga series. Major Motoko Kusanagi is a cyborg employed as the squad leader of Public Security Section 9, a fictional division of the real Japanese National Public Safety Commission. "Ghost in the Shell" is a highly acclaimed 1995 anime film that wowed audiences worldwide. In the opening credits, the numbers that flow in the background are actually computer codes for the different names of the staff who worked on the movie. These flowing numbers inspired the Matrix digital rain.
Nice headsculpt from Alpha - very anime-like. Nice BIG .... eyes!!
Major Kusanagi's weapons - seburo K-1C, seburo C-26A and seburo K-287-4C
Motoko suiting up - must be quite cold coz her chest's looking all perky ;p
Ready to kick some bad guy's a$$
The headsculpt and weapons are nice but the suit and belt is disappointing :(
