Alter Kos-Mos Ver 4

Alter Kos-Mos Ver. 4
Got this Alter Kos-Mos ver. 4 a few weeks ago. I was able to get her from Sideshow Collectables for only $30.00 thanks to them being out of stock on another figure. Back at Christmas I had gotten the Iron Man collectors DVD set from Best Buy which came with a 50.00 gift card for Sideshow Collectables. The thing with Sideshow's gift cards though is you can only use them on select merchandise. So I kept watching their gift card page to see if they added anything I wanted and could afford after the 50.00 was deducted. Most of the stuff listed that I was interested in at Christmas when I got the card would of still been 100.00 or more after the card.

More after the jump....

Finally back in February they added Ikki Tousen's Ryomo Shimei to the gift card eligible items. She would of only been $15.00 with the gift card. So, I place my order and then after 2 weeks I get a email saying that unfortunately Ryomo is out of stock and that I can use the credit for the gift card on any item I want to order not just gift card eligible items. So thanks to that I was able to get this $80.00 figure for only $30.00

I tried something new when doing the photo shoot for Kos-Mos. At first I tried taking some pictures like I normally do with the light in my room on, but the pictures didn't really look to great. So I decided to turn out the lights and just use the flash on the camera. I think they came out fairly nice. I know there are a lot of shadows, but I don't have any small lamps to use for lighting. I plan on getting some eventually for future photo shoots.

This is an very beautiful sculpt of Kos-Mos. The sculptor Yagyu Toshiyuki did an amazing job. And I really like the stand, which is a lot more interesting than the large flat rectangle that came with my other Alter Kos-Mos. Plus it doesn't take up as much space as the other Kos-Mos's base.

Something I didn't notice while playing the Xenosaga games. Kos-Mos's eyes get bigger as her body gets upgraded.

This version of Kos-Mos is defiantly worth a rating of 10/10.

You can try to find Kos-Mos or other great figures at these fine retailers.
