! There is a wall of text in the beginning! If you want to see the figure + pictures and not the background information, you can scroll down a bit. ;) !

This is a review of a figure that shows off her panties, which is why I tagged it NSFW !

Welcome to my review! Today I will be talking about a figure of Gertrud Barkhorn ENTRY #2021 from Strike Witches ENTRY #2 ! This figure ITEM #78365 is made by Alter ENTRY #7619 .

I will start off with telling some more about her background.

Background

Strike Witches is a manga, light novel and anime series with character designs from the famous artist Shimada Fumikane/Humikane ENTRY #21456 . The storyline of the franchise takes place in an alternative WWII, where girls with magical powers, called witches, represent famous pilots and the enemy to be beaten are aliens called Neuroi. Witches are the only people that can wear Striker Units, airplane-legs needed to get close to the Neuroi. The series may be a bit hard to get into as it can seem very strange for some, but it's easy to fall in love with the character designs that are a nice mix of cute and fierce.

Gertrud 'Trude' Barkhorn is form Karlsland, an area that can be seen similar to Germany in the World Witches universe. She volunteered for the military from a young age and climbed ranks fast. Generally she is a calm and serious person, but once she 'snaps', she can get really worked up and aggresive. With the high-power posing this figure has, she is definitely in her latter state.

The reason why and how I got her

Just as with my recently talked about Lucchini BLOG #41191 , Yoshika BLOG #41904 , Minna BLOG #41964 , and Shirley BLOG #42015 she was a 'bulk buy' for me from MASTRACUSTOM . I am currently aiming to buy all of the different Witches as their figures made by Alter (not sure about collecting double characters yet).

Original art

Just as the other figures in this line, there is not specific artwork this figure was modelled after.

However, there is a lot of promotional artwork from the anime in which we see her in similar posing.

And quite some of her action scenes in the anime show her with a similar pose as well. Just like the others in this line, Trude her look in this figure is definitely based on her look in the anime rather than her artwork from Humikane Shimada.

The box in which she comes is...HUGE! The colors on the box of this one are quite a bit darker than the others in this line.

Just like the box, the blisters are also HUGE, and interestingly enough are just big enough to hold all the parts.

She comes with quite an big instruction sheet explaining the difference of the two guns, how you should attach them to her, how to change the propellors and how to attach her to the base.

The big metal rod holding the figure feels a lot heavier and more secure than the others I own of this line so far. The non-spinning propellors look a bit weird in my opinion, as you know Trude has to be flying while in this pose.

The Figure - Configuration 2: Spinning propellors showing and wielding machine guns

I like in this angle how you can see her 'feet' become a bit blurry through the effect of the spinning propellors.

Trude's fierce expression is executed well, although she looks a bit too kind from some angles. That could be because of her bangs obstructing her eyebrows from some views.

Her hair and dog ears have a few painting mishaps. In general I'm also not a really big fan of the sculpt of the ears, it looks very unnatural from quite some angles, like this one.

Her low pigtails are sculpted nicely with some movement showing in them. The small hair ribbons are looking especially good considering the size and the age of this figure.

The collar of her uniform is definitely an eye catcher and overall her uniform is very good looking, from the crisp looking ribbon to the small buttons being painted well.

I always really liked the design of Trude's coattails and it's nice to see so much creases and movement sculpted in them!

The back of her coat has some nice sculpt too. It's interesting how there is barely any shading on the jacket, although it shows a lot of depth. Specifically on my copy of the figure, there is a small paint mishap near the bottom detailing of the line that goes along the middle of her back.

Her cute collar design also shows on the back. Also notice over here how it's fairly visible that her right arm can get removed to be able to fit the gun. Luckily the peg is quite strong, so I didn't have any issues like with my Minna of this set (with Minna, her arm kept falling off).

Now you might have already noticed a bit from earlier pictures, but unfortunately I damaged my Trude quite a bit while assembling her. The ribbed back of the machine gun makes for a fun detail, but as the gun has to be posed against her breast, this is an almost sure-fire way to end up with a scratch in your chest. Then comes along my issue where I had to move the part on her breast a bit an SCRATCH. This happened. Apparently the brown of the butt stock also likes to rub off, so she got a long line across her arm too. *sigh* I am not happy with this. Luckily it's not very visible when normally displayed in my detolf and looking at her from a distance.

Anyway, even for people that placed the gun in her left hand right in one go, I wouldn't be surprised that if they ever remove the gun, they will see a similar damage on her breast. Really a design flaw in the sculpt in my opinion. They should have removed a part of the ribbed detailing for the area that touches her chest.

Her left hand is posed very femininely around the grip. She has sculpted fingernails with a bit of nailpolish on them. You can also see some minimal seamlines on the hand here, but its's forgiven for a figure almost 7 years old.

Trude's left hand is posed and detailed in a similar way and the whole machine gun is detailed the same, except for the strap at the bottom.

Both guns have slightly differently angled straps, this one is posed in a way where it almost looks like it could accidentally get stuck in the propellor, yikes! I checked the prototype pictures of this figure, where the strap is posed in a way where the strap ends a lot higher on her leg. I could not replicate this on my copy of this figure and looking at user pictures on this website, it seems like this was a general thing with the mass produced version.

Trude's Striker Units have some nicely applied decals, especially the one referencing Chris (her little sister) is cute. With all of the Witches having very personal stickers on their Units, it's almost like you are looking at a decorated motorbike or images someone nowadays would have as tattoos. Anyway, the camo-print has been painted nicely. along with some minimal shading here and there in the legs.

Now, let's not forget the biggest part of the fanservice of this figure: her low-rise white panties. Sculpted are some sewn lines and creases can mainly be seen at her behind.

Trude's tail definitely has the most detail from all the tails from the girls in this line so far. It also seems to look a bit more natural than the rest.

The Points

Positive
- Amazing and impressive posing.
- Lots of tiny details are painted really well, those guns look amazing!

Neutral
- Expression looks a bit too kind from some angles.
- Some small letdowns in paint.

Negative
- Easy to get damages on her left breast because of the way you need to place her machine gun.
- Some let-downs in sculpt, such as the strange shape of her dog ears.

The Scores

Sculpting 8/10
I really appreciate all the details and I wanted to give a higher rating for the sculpt, but the easy way her chest can get scratched up because of how the machine gun is hold in the left hand really brings this down. Furthermore, some parts like her dog ears look a bit unnatural. Luckily there are still many many other nicely detailed parts on this figure, such as her machine guns and her coat.

Painting 8/10
Some small mishaps here and there and some parts are low on shading, but overall very nice.

Posing 10/10
It's amazingly in-character and I love how poweful this figure looks with her wide-legged pose!

Base 8/10
A big blue disc like the rest of the set. The metal rod is quite a lot sturdier feeling than a lot of others in this line, so I assume she will keep on being displayed safely like this for a long time.

Packaging 8/10
Deep colored box that protects the figure well, it's big, but so is the figure!

Enjoyment 8/10
This would have been a 9 or a 10 if I did not have loss in enjoyment that came from my anger of damaging this figure while assembling. Still this figure is an amazing piece while displayed and I highly recommend her.

Conclusion

If you're very careful with assembling this beauty, you will for sure have a ton of enjoyment having her displayed! She is really an amazing piece!

Availability

Originally released for ¥7,8K yen in 2012, she now goes on average for ¥6-8K for an opened one. Especially with the good yen rates to EUR and USD right now, she is definitely worth that price!

Trude being quite a popular character, she has a lot of offerings in scaled form:
- The very recently released Jet Striker Version from Alter ITEM #237254 is an absolute beast in size and quality. I have seen her at friends' places and she is crazy impressive. Her price is also impressive, getting her can easily cost you ¥25-30K
- There is also a color variation of this specific version ITEM #96787 which is very hard to find and hits very different prices everytime it comes up for sale. Being only a color variant, I assume her quality won't be very different from this one.
- Then we also have a Kotobukiya offering ITEM #33456 which as been praised by a lot of collectors for being more fitting to the character (similar to the Minna from Kotobukiya versus the Alter one). This Kotobukiya version goes for similar prices as the Alter one reviewed here, fetching around ¥6-8K.

As I haven't seen the Kotobukiya version in person I can't comment at this moment very well if this version or the Kotobukiya version is a better choice. In general both of them seem to be of very high quality. If you want the 'ultimate' Trude version and have deep pockets combined with a lot of display space, go for the Jet Striker version.

And to finish it!

I am currently still unboxing most of my collection after having them in storage for a long time, but here is how she is displayed right now:

victorviper (6 måneder siden) #50456971I'd never noticed that she had Chris' name on her Striker Unit before. Was that always on there, or did she customize her unit at some point during the series I wonder (maybe between seasons 1 and 2 when they made some tweaks to the art)?
I bought the Koto Barkhorn (looks at my owned list-was that really 6 years ago?) mainly because the pantsu shot on the Koto figure was a little less aggressive and the Koto figure was a better with my collection back then, but today I might have opted for the Alter one instead. It's kind of tricky to manipulate the adjustable arm on the Koto Barkhorn and get her posed just right, and the overall finish and level of detail on the Alter figure seems marginally better.
Are planning on doing a review of Erica to complete the Karsland trio?


I can't remember it being a plot point in the series, but I have to admit it's been a long time since I fully rewatched Strike Witches, so maybe I should again.. :) I do remember some artwork from her clearly showing it, but maybe it's not even there in the anime as it's such a small detail? Anyway, I will pay close attention to it the next time I watch the anime!

For me the pantsu shot of this one and this Sanya ITEM #9920 at first, was a bit too much (it's interesting that with that one Koto was the one with higher fanservice). Still, I really like the posing of this Barkhorn and my attention is not even that much directed to her crotch because of her guns/face asking so much attenton and her coat being quite detailed and having interesting movement.

With Minna, the Koto one seems to be definitely winning, but I would say that with Barkhorn the pros and cons come a lot closer to eachother. I do am still mad about how easily the chest of mine got scratched though.

Erica is ready to get some pictures! But considering she has quite some figure reviews and videos out there, I will probably make it a photoshoot-type blog instead of a full review.
