When I first saw this go up for preorder at play-Asia, I knew instantly I had to have her in my collection! No, I’m not a lolikon! Though this is rather different from the usual figures I have collected as it’s modest figure but that is what makes me want it even more!
It’s not to say the figure is very unappealing but to me it somehow captures the ideal that she believes in as well as the gentleness that is Nanoha’s personality. Another reason why I love this figure so much is because it doesn’t try to make her look sexy or anything like that common in anime but it manages to shows that under all that firepower is a sweet girl looking to make the world a better place (through sheer fire power! Hahaha)
Alright enough gushing about this figure, let’s get into the finer details! The workmanship is very good, as it should be since it’s by Alter.
The figures comes with many bits such as an extra head where the hair down, 2 sets of hair clips (the white one and the black one from Fate). It also includes raging/rising heart both in amulet form or assembled form along with an extra left hand to hold the assembled staff form. As an added bonus there, Yunno in ferret form is also part of the set.
The pose is just nice and the paint work is simply perfect! No imperfections that I can see and the shoes have a nice glossy finish to them.
So would I recommend this figure? Well if you prefer the grown up version of Nanoha then maybe no. But if your a hardcore Nanoha fan then I say go for it!
