After quite a delay the number of Exelica figures in my collection has finally doubled ^^
Was quite a wait, especially since I wanted to play the game… after ordering her I couldn’t justify spending another $10 or $15 or whatever to get the xbox live version while I waited ^^; Still available at Play Asia but she’ll cost you an arm and a leg ($160 usd… used to be $130 usd orz). Even the regular game only version is going for $90 usd!!
As such, I really wouldn’t feel bad if I hadn’t ordered her ^^; She’s cute, a great nendoroid and all… but not the centerpiece of a collection that I usually dish out that kind of money for.
You figure that the game should only account for $10 or $20 of the price (assuming you have an xbox)… or even if you’re generous and priced the game at regular $50 prices… that still means you’re paying $80 for a nendoroid ($110 at the current price! orz).
Blegh, ok, gonna stop talking about price that’s depressing to see how much I spent on her ^^;;; So why did I buy her?
Those are the traits I love about her. Love the character concept, she’s kawaii, well detailed and has weapons ^^ Ah yes, and I wanted the game. ^^;
One of the great things about this nendoroid is that it comes with ディアフェンド (diafendo – defender? defend? – the orb thingy) and アールスティア (a-rusutia – alstear? alstair? – the gun thing). Great (and necessary!) accessories ^^
Next to their 1/8 sized counterparts:
You get a total of 3 faces and 2 different sets of legs. Her right arm can be swapped between straight and curled.
Lighting still not where I want it to be. Will have to act on James’ advice to post a pic of my setup so I can get some tips.
Wasn’t quite feeling the close up shots, so this review will end shorter than usual. Before that, our combo finale~
Regular and chibi~ which reminds me of the miku video I’ve been obsessing over lately ^^;
A little swapping and exelica-chan acquires even more firepower ^^
Ah, almost forgot… a ballon was included? Really random bonus item ^^; Melonpan eating shana not included ^^;;
勝負！ shoubu! … exelica needs a boost thou ^^;
Meanwhile her satellites take out Limit Gunz’ ankles ^^;;
Ah yes, another thing I forgot to talk about. You can now play as Faintear, love her character design too.
If you poke around the official site you’ll find other wallpaper and an info page that, if you scroll down even has some sample CG and such. My previous post has the OP video embedded if you missed it.
As I may have mentioned… I am totally praying for an alter release of the other two girls. It would be epic ^__^ I’m counting on you Alter! More Exelica girls and subaru! (beat blades haruka subaru)
Aaand one last photo…
Protecting the galaxy with her mighty leek ^__^ Was really happy to get her twin tails to stick up ^^
Alrighty, that’s all.
