Oh boy, this Tainaka Ritsu is so $$$! (@@. 9,800 yen before tax is quite a lot. compared to the other Alter K-ON! figures, there isn’t really any special with this figure beside the drum set. I guess the drum set does cost quite a lot.

——Description from Manufacturer——

Sculpted by Sen-u Tanaka

Straight from the relaxed atmosphere of Sakuragaoka High School’s light music club comes the club leader with an equally laid back personality – Ritsu Tanaka, aka Rittchan, is here! This figure features a perfect replica of her energetic face and Ritsu is depicted holding both of her sticks up with her feet on her drum pedals – it looks like Houkago Tea Time has just finished another amazing live set! Ritsu’s uniform has been reproduced in meticulous detail – with every wrinkle and fold perfectly sculpted – and he drum set is simultaneously impressive in its size as well as its incredible level of detail! You can feel the excitement of K-On!’s band scenes with this great new addition to Alter’s lineup!
