The acquisition of this figure is kind of bittersweet to me, as I had previously owned it. I remember I had it preordered on HLJ when it very first came out but the original suffered a horrible fate. As much as I wanted to replace it I couldn’t bring myself to pay the outrageous prices that it was going for on ebay at the time so I kind of put on the back burner for a while.
It was glorious to see her again, although honestly I think absence may have made the heart grow a little bit fonder over the years. Figure production and quality has changed a lot over the past five years though, while she is still my favorite Rider figure she doesn’t seem to live up to my own memories. I don’t regret replacing her though as she is still pretty damn awesome.
