January Preorder Dilemna
Posted by meronpan on January 29, 2009
Nanoha Takamachi. What am I going to do about you? Are you really worth 10,857￥?
I was being so good… so far January marks a record low for my preordering habits… leave it to GSC to announce a 1/4 scale beauty for preorder…
Looking back at the damage sustained this month…( I track my orders by date the order was placed)…
2.) Megahouse’s Lulu was an unanticipated release I decided to acquire… I loved Code Geass and sadly I have no Code Geass figures so far. What better way to start the collection than with the main character?
3.) Subaru was a given, lest my set be incomplete ^^; I still haven’t done any posts on nanoha, but as far as strikers goes… was totally not into subaru/teana in the beginning but definitely warmed up to them by the end. A welcome and necessary part of the collection ^_^
4.) Saber Lily… man, hadn’t thought about getting another Saber figure, but once I saw the painted prototype… couldn’t resist.
Love the way the did the hair. Love the pose. Love the base. Love Saber. Love larger scale figures. I’m expecting great things ^_^
So that’s how the first month of the new year has shaped up for me. Given my previous impulse buys I suppose adding Nanoha wouldn’t be that bad… As mentioned earlier… I am at a record low for orders this month so it’s not like I’d be going broke or anything… Yet I still kind of hesitate…
I wish there was more detail in her hair. Especially for this scale of figure. I guess the smoothness on her head isn’t really as noticeable from the front, but it still bothers me. Otherwise… the pose isn’t bad. I’m usually not into swimsuit figures, but that didn’t come into play when I saw the pics ^^;
I guess the biggest source of doubt is that I didn’t really seriously start considering her until I read in the description that a similarly themed Fate (based on the same source art) was in the works…
So yes, it’d be nice to have both… but should I succumb to my set completion sickness again? I’m afraid I might be dropping a lotta money just to have the pair, rather than on the merits of each alone ^^;;; My honest first reaction to nanoha was basically, ‘pretty good, but i better save some money.’ On the other hand she looks really good and seems to be a faithful representation of the character… aaaaaa どうしよう？！ (what am i gonna do?!)
How’s your January been? And what will you do? Have you ordered Nanoha?
