Signum ~ Ritter des schwertes
Posted by meronpan on January 16, 2009
In a rare stroke of luck, the postman arrived earlier than usual and my roommate was home to receive a package for me. 一体何でしょう？ (What could it be?!) 見ての通り！(As you can see…!)
Signum, Ritter des schwetes! Ich kann nicht verstehen Deutsch… Ist die “Ritter des schwertes” grammatisch korrekt? ^^;; Sorry, hopefully google translate hasn’t led me astray. If you’re wondering why I’m so often insterting random languages… it’s because I love learning new languages! ^^; *ahem* SIGNUM. Sorry, yes, let’s proceed with the Signum review.
If you are the proud owner of any of the other Alter Nanoha gals, you’ll most likely be pleased with this release as well.
More Alter excellence! Wish I had updated my review set up to do this release justice… alas, some other time…
Signum’s sword, Laevatein.
I noticed her skirt has that same sort of tinting that was on Unison Vita… made me think that perhaps it wasn’t a weird paint mishap? Maybe it’s better to shade a white garment with a matching color rather than gray or what not?
mmm ponytail ^_^
I’m a sucker for characters with long hair, swords, and that reserved, sometimes cold personality. Yeap, signum fits the bill all right ^^
I apologize if many of the shots are similar… perhaps got a little carried away ^^;
Signum’s scabbard is permanently attached to her hand.
And Laevatein won’t be able to fit in ^^;
I really love all the detail in the outfit… figure’s more detailed than the anime :P
Mmm better quit with the low angling before Signum get’s angry ^^; A swift kick would definitely leave a mark…
One problem with her pose is that I kept getting her sword in her face ^^;; Kept having to rotate her or adjust the shooting angle for a better view ^^;
Rotating like above makes her pose look a little weird to me, below turned out better i think…
…looking thru some foo-bar-baz pics as I write this, I shoulda rotated the *sword* ^^;;; Ah well.
Some noticeable seams in the outfit, but honestly my attention is constantly drawn away so it hasn’t bothered me at all.
Another reason to upgrade my review setup is to increase the amount of available space…
Alas with my camera I don’t think there’s any feasible combination of aperture/zoom/distance/etc that will blur my shelves when trying to get everyone in the pic… With such a busy background it’s hard to focus on the nanoha gang ^^;
Taking the same pic with the flash helps a little since the background isn’t lit up as much I guess…
You can see Signum is pretty much the same height as 1/6 kanu
Konata makes for a good foot rest while haruhi is back to her shenanigans.
Do you like pink?
Forgot Nida ;_; Well, perhaps next time…
Looks like you can still pick Signum up at Hobby Search, and HLJ. If you need more coverage, stop by foo-bar-baz, Exelica Meteor, or taste… Rin and Optic both nabbed Signum recently too, so I’m sure they’ll have reviews up soon. ^_^
Update: Optic’s review is up ^_^
Argh, it’s late again. Still can’t believe it takes me 4 hours to do these ^^;;;
