Sankt Kaiser Vivio
Posted by meronpan on August 16, 2010
At the risk of being horribly inaccurate I’ll go with the spelling on the box for this one ^^;
Been awhile but finally here’s another Alter review… their latest entry to the StrikerS series!
I am the master of mediocre box shots! ^^;
For those of you not familiar with the series, well hmm I guess it would constitute a spoiler huh… Skip to the next paragraph if you care ^^; Anyhow, as I was saying, Vivio is indeed that little orphan girl (heterochromia-philiacs eat your hearts out :P) that gets adopted by Nanoha and Fate, making the ultimate yuri family. I forget the exact reasons but you know, latent powers unlocked, transformation sequence engage, blamo we have adult vivio ^_^
Par for this series of releases she stands at a monstrous 1/7, giving signum a run for the money.
Speaking of monstrous I had forgotten how much of a bust upgrade her transformation had granted her ^^;
*ahem* we’ll get back to that later, but for now:
Was kinda having trouble find different angles/framing and ended up with a ton of similar shots… guess I’m getting out of practice ^^;;;
Wouldn’t have minded if her pony tail was a little more detailed but at least it’s got a nice flow to it.
If I remember correctly her uniform sorta compliments her numbers allies.
Sporting some sort of body suit so no pantsu today.
My room is the dust capital of the world. orz
Base is… base is also par for the series ;_;
We don’t get to see much of adult vivio fighting but she does have some sort of weird energy ball attack which is what I assume we see here.
Alrighty back to that bust shot…
I mean jeebus that’s quite an upgrade. To those unfamiliar with nanoha… no the series isn’t just service ^^;
Dramatic framing? Well, I tried ^^;
I think the lower angle shots turned out better…
Liked getting the entire energy ball thing in the shot below…
…but kinda liked the framing better with her off to the side… ^^;;
or maybe portrait, low angle?
You may have noticed the group shot missing from my shamal review… was lazy since and delayed it for this review ^^;
I think that’s everyone so far, right? Left out chibi nanoha since technically she’s a movie release and I was out of room ^^; Had to crop off the top and bottom and use my 50mm but i managed to fit everyone somehow ^^ (though stupid signum is sticking her sword in hayate’s face ^^;)
Tried taking some other shots but i think they’re only only passable resized down ^^;
Ended up just focusing on vivio ^^; Sorry hayate, vita, you’ve been relegated to bokeh duty.
<3 Maybe they’ll come out with a StrikerS movie… think the figure looks way better than the anime at this point ^^;
Especially as a follow up to the lamentably forgettable Shamal, Vivio’s another great addition to the lineup ^^ Which reminds me I really need to get around to reading vivid ^^;; 2nd volume already came out a while ago i think?
Once again, would recommend stopping by Tentacle Armada for some really awesome shots.
Totally off topic: Previously I only followed a small group of folks on twitter so that I wouldn’t be overrun by tweets all day… decided to part with that plan and so now I should be following pretty much everyone. yoroshiku na~
Slightly on topic: Still in the queue: moe moe kyun & sheryl! Al azif in the mail!
