Builder Eero Okkonen is back with a ravishingly lovely figure from Magic the Gathering. This is the Wanderer, who according to Eero is “a mysterious individual with a habit of planeswalking from world to world slaying monsters and enemies with her decently-sized sword.”
We had a brief but enthusiastic fascination with Magic the Gathering at our house. My son was really into it for a few months, then suddenly lost interest. I never played, but he tried to explain it to me a couple times on the way to the comic book shop where he played, it was a bit baffling. I don’t recall seeing this card, and I don’t know this character, but I certainly dig Eero Okkonen’s building skills and this figure looks amazing.
I’ve never played Magic the Gathering, but it was real popular at my house for a couple weeks a few years ago. I can’t say I recognize this character either, but that doesn’t diminish my appreciation for him (her? it?). Builder Pate-keetongu has crafted a strange but wonderful character here, with the skill and creativity we’ve come to expect.
Just look at this lovely cybernetic, steampunky beauty from builder Pate-keetongu. I'm not a Magic the Gathering player, nor am I familiar with the character that inspired this build, but that doesn't diminish my appreciation for her. The sense of weight, balance, motion and purpose is all there, she looks ready to strike or take flight.
