If you love Nanoha and you love Alter, I’m sure you’re well aware of this release… especially since it was two months ago ^^;; Ordered through Kid Nemo, and in light of four other figures being canceled on me, was very happy when the order was filled.
It seems that StrikerS didn’t sit as well with people compared to its successors but in the end I liked it well enough. Perhaps if I ever get through this backlog I’ll ramble on in detail about that ^^; At any rate, Vita debuts in A’s so you don’t have to like StrikerS to be a fan. Actually at first I wasn’t considering Vita at all (thought I’d be content with Hayate, Fate, and Nanoha)… but sometime after Signum was announced I got roped in.
For completeness, box & packaging in a previous post.
Other than the red paint that appears to be bleed through from the original color, don’t really have any complaints about this release. It is Alter after all :P
Supposedly the white was painted over the original color causing the red tint? And even if it was intentional… doesn’t seem to have any basis in the anime…
I guess it is a shame since I like these colors so much better.
Great dynamic pose and Graf Eisen is beautiful – actually made of metal/metal plated so it’s nice and shiny.
In the full resolution I think you can make out my manga shelves in the reflection ^^;
Vita comes with three different forms for Graf Eisen, raketenform, pictured above, hammerform, below…
I still have some lingering leaning paranoia so haven’t left gigantform on display yet, even though it’s my favorite.
I am slightly sad I didn’t get both because the original color version comes with Zerstörungform! Alas, too much excess… I have other figures too buy ^^;
Vita also wields Zamber form Bardiche…
the Green Dragon Crescent Blade…
and Raising Heart ^_^
While we’re looking at the weapons, here’s all of ’em lined up.
…which reminds me, I lied. The paint isn’t the only flaw – #2 is that the tips of the hammerform and raketenform are slightly bent! ;_;
Weird rabbit head things ^^;
Closer look at her skirt and the paint job.
It ain’t a figure review without a pantsu shot. Gomen Vita m(_ _)m
Can’t wait until I have more scale figures of the nanoha cast. For now…
foo-bar-baz has coverage of both unison and regular Vita… can’t seem to remember seeing any other Vita reviews on my blogroll… ‘course that could be from a bad memory or not being up to date ^^;; I know Optic got her but don’t think he posted a review yet? Anyhow, lemme know if you’d like your review linked.
