Ha, you thought about it!

Nah, maybe an Aprillia? Possibly a mishmash to avoid copyright issues.

I thought it might be Aprillia too but their big bike is a V4.

Ah, MV augusta F4 750! Knew it was Italian!

This explains the confusion.
The MV Agusta F4 refined the innovative design of the 916

The ducati doesn't have the up and over headlamp. Still both are :safesex:

Oh and I found Mahoro for sensible price and bought her.

Oh shoot, Mahoro has been caught by customs and I'm gonna get charged duty :(

:( I find the Parcel Force charge to be a lot larger than the import tax charge though. EMS has always resulted in a Parcel Force charge if I have to pay tax, even if it's a small item. Then they want to charge you further for delivery.

I always try to ship Registered SAL for the tracking. That way the Post Office handle it and I've not been charged tax yet. Got a few >£50 figures through that way - but it does take longer than EMS. EMS usually arrives within a week of shipping; SAL can take a few weeks. Or even 6 months in one case I had...

Some assembly required!

Image
Pretty much everything is metal apart from the front cowl and Mahoro herself.

Image
Some really nice detailing!

Image
No panty shot!

Image
This was a bit fiddly as everything has to line up perfectly before the little pegs engage to hold it together.

Image
Maids with guns!

Cheap argos wall hung display case. And yes, thats a tin of lighter fluid ontop along with my zippo in a belt pouch. However I'm not a smoker, just a pyro.

Picked up my first Evangelion figure yesterday. Thought I'd come tempt you with her :P.

This is quite an old figure of Rei released back in '07 by Aizu Project. She's made from polystone too, so she's quite brittle compared to PVC.

Nah, don't like the hair and face. Still a nice figure!

I've resisted very well, although I would like a Haruhi figure and maybe another Eva related one. Maybe goth loli Rei.
