From Alter comes this PVC figure of Yoko Littner from the anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, in her alternate reality bounty hunter attire from episode 26 of the series. SPOILER: The Anti-Spiral sends the Gurren-dan to a dream universe, and Yoko sees herself as a bounty hunter. This is a nice departure from all the other figure versions of Yoko in her her most recognizable attire from the first arc of the anime, and I do like my figures with alternate costumes never or rarely seen in the original source material, such as the Max Factory Haruhi Extravaganza figures.
A few screencaps from the episode show the original source material from which this figure is based on.
Her long coat is considerably shorter and more tattered in PVC form, but for display purposes, its good that the figure doesn’t take up a massive amount of space because of lengthy clothing.
Of course, being the queen of fanservice that is Yoko, her oppai are ample within her flame-decal top.
There is excellent detail in her hair and attire as well. The sculpting is very well done, and there are no visible defects in the paint job either.
From the side, you can see her hair and clothing extend a considerable distance behind her.
From the back, it’s apparent that Alter has not skipped out the details, and the tatters and bullet-holes (?) in her clothing are particularly well done.
You can barely call those shorts. A few inches less and you would be entering thong territory.
Also, being Yoko, she packs her trademark massive sniper rifle that is probably of a very high caliber.
The recoil of this rifle gives a considerable amount of Gainax bounce.
Yoko’s alternate Bounty Hunter form also packs a revolver, seen here in its holster.
This is an old Wild West style revolver, probably something similar to the Remington 1875.
Of course, also being somewhat of a gun otaku, I switched out Yoko’s revolver for some other hardware that my other figures happened to be packing.
Here is Yoko with a Colt M1911.

I should do a review of my New Line Revy that I received with one my loots.

Another fine work by Alter, this Yoko does not disappoint, although there is a serious glut of Yoko figures these days. If you absolutely must have a Yoko in her trademark attire, the Kotobukiya Yoko might be a better choice. However, amongst the Yoko figures, the Alter one stands out because it is unique in her attire, and the quality is second to none. An excellent addition to any Yoko fan’s collection.
