Reminder: Spice and Wolf is something you want. While we may have another week or two till the Spice and Wolf DVD's come out, that won't stop us from appreciating this beautiful item.
Before you go dropping your jaws and exclaiming "do want," know that what you are looking at is not for sale... sort of. This is a unique paint job on the Turu no Takata's Holo kit. After drooling all over these photos I was amazed to see how much I disliked the original kit. While the wonderful position and sculpting were still in place, the terrible colors made the entire thing feel slightly ugly, and unremarkable.
Like, in this case, less is more. The softer, darker tones really extenuate the deep character we see in the series. Even the apple's dull sheen instead of glossy shine made a huge different to me.

It's pretty cool what a little less color can do. 
Let me get this straight though, This is a figurine that is/was for sale, and someone just repainted it?

@RockmanBionics: That is what i took from it. The one in the middle was the original one but was then sanded down or had the paint stripped from it, then repainted with softer more realistic colours.

No PVC figure can give The Legendary Sage Wolf Horo's as-much Legendary soft fur. :<

@Thage: I agree but 27 Holo figures might!
