八神 はやて Yagami Hayate Review Proper
Posted by meronpan on January 4, 2009
By now you’ve probably seen your fill of hayate reviews, so why bother adding another to the mix? For the love of figures, of course! ^_^
The box was “reviewed” earlier if you missed it ^^;; Another excellent release from Alter, though she’s got an impressive footprint for a 1/7, not to mention price.
It’s a shame you can’t really see the bottom pair from the front too much because of her outrageously large skirt thing. ‘Course that’s another thing I love about this figure, so I wouldn’t want her without it ^^;
Like in the anime, the wings aren’t all directly attached to her body.
I was really surprised by the detail on her book. Was a nice touch.
There’s a notch in the side of the book that attaches to a peg on hayate’s arm.
Love the pose ^_^
Though rein has her own little stand, I prefer her perched on hayate’s wing.
Rein’s little book has a buncha stuff written on it too!
Obviously not as detailed as her non-scale release but pretty dang good for her tiny size (why don’t they just calculate a real scale number? According to a random nanoha wiki I found, she’s ~30cm, which makes the ‘non-scale’ release about 1/1.5 scale).
おっと、パンツ！ Before moving her into my new detolf, hayate was on above me on my desk… which means I was constantly inadvertently looking up her skirt all day ^^;;; Gomen, hayate! m(_ _)m
Nice shiny finish on her hip armor thingies.
Another small reason to display her where she’s visible from all sides… nice little touch on the end of her staff for extra sexay.
I really shoulda dusted her off more carefully before the shoot. Stupid macro magnification ^^;
Though in all the official pics (and even the documentation I believe) hayate’s holding her staff on the golden part… it’s been a real pain to get the dang thing to stick. Kept falling out and was getting fed up, so I moved her grip to the thicker wrapped part.
I’ve had plenty of other figures whose feet didn’t quite fit in their pegs without a bit of stretching… however in this case the stress from hayate’s feet not quite fitting properly case them to not fit flush with the base. Err… not that you can see it in the below pic, but her foot reminded me of that ^^;
I think I have a thing for this sort of expression… always end up using it for my figmas ^^;
A head for unison mode is included, though I don’t think I’ll be using it since for accuracy, it would mean rein isn’t visible.
As with the rest of nanoha releases, you get all sorts of character info on the base. Wish they woulda spent the 10 seconds it takes to ask an english speaker if “Position belonging” is engrish or not -_-;
It’s a great pose I tell ya, even Exelica is doing it ^_^
Speaking of Exelica, I got an e-mail from Play-Asia recently…
Trigger Heart Exelica Enhanced [Limited Edition] tba. -> Mar 26, 2009
Looks like I’ll be waiting a bit longer for the nendoroid.
Mini nanoha manekko
Aaaand speaking of nanoha, Alter still hasn’t released any info on a release for her… though it seems Subaru got some love lately… I want a complete set! ^_^
Once again for your convenience, here are more reviews in case you missed ’em or what not…
In unrelated news… I’m insanely behind on my figure blog reading… 367 unread entries at the moment ;_; So if you’re wondering why you haven’t seen me stop by in awhile… no I haven’t stopped reading, I’m just really behind. Reaaaally reaaally behind orz
