Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS "Fan Anticipation Thread"

3rd TV series Title.......

http://d.hatena.ne.jp/nanatsuki/20060811/1155266778

2007



Edit by Moderator: This thread is now officially devoted to fan anticipation of Nanoha StrikerS. This thread has become incredibly long without actually containing anything of substance other than fan anticipation, hopes and rumors. Most of what it contains will have a rather confusing effect on future readers since it is likely to contradict the actual show. To improve our focus, once the series actually starts, this thread will be closed so that a new (and hopefully topical) thread can be created for general discussion of the show.

Yup. There's quite a bit of discussion going on about it in the A's thread at the moment... not sure if it should be moved over into here though.

Yeah..... lets move the discussion here... Xris already thumbs upped the new Negima! thread and this is in the same vein (new season).

This is the one I want....

Rightyho, here it is then. I have no objections to posting in a topic started by a picture of Satsuki, anyway

Anyway, found all the figures so may as well post them all. Big pics though, so I'll put them in spoiler tags for length. Prices are based around HLJ and don't include early bird bonuses:

Good Smile Company Nanoha, 1/8 Scale, November/December release, 5524 Yen:
Spoiler:
Kotobukiya Nanoha, 1/7 Scale, November release, 4800 Yen:
Spoiler:
Movic Nanoha, 1/6 Scale, August release, 6800 Yen:
Spoiler:
Alter Nanoha, 1/8 Scale, Out Now, 4571 Yen:
Spoiler:
The Alter one's kinda crappy (her expression looks far too vacant and lifeless for her pose, in particular, and apparently the wings fall off easily too and won't go back on) but it's also the cheapest. Movic's is pretty cool but is also the most expensive, her face looks kinda pale, and I've barely heard of the company before so the final product may be disappointing and nothing like the promo pics. I really like the face and expression though. Kotobukiya's has really nice colouring on the outfit, are supposedly reputable, has lots of feathers (some say too many, but I don't really mind) and her legs are done well, at least imo. On the other hand, her face doesn't really look like Nanoha to me - it's a decent face, but it's just not Nanoha. GSC's is fine too, it some tongue (=o), the face does kinda look like Nanoha, and it's definitely got my favourite weapon. On the other hand, the skirt's waaay too blatant.

I dunno, I'm tempted to get one as a Nanoha fan but there's nothing that jumps out and says buy me like Alter's Fate did, and I'm running short of money right about now.

I thought Nanoha was a lefty because she holds Raging Heart in her left hand.

She is a lefty but oddly she wields the Exceleon mode device like that. (Even in the animation she does that.)

Yeah, those models have become a real problem for me. I mean, HLJ's gonna totally hate me. I keep pre-ordering them and then cancelling them when a better one comes out. I wish they'd at least be more inventive with them. I have Alter's one and it's not bad. Took some patching up (but what PVC figure doesn't?) but now it's getting sad.

A word about the Movic one. The one with normal Raging Heart is the normal one you can buy. The other one is a limited edition piece.

Yesh I want the 3rd Nanoha figure <33

The Fate ones are pretty sweet as well. Too bad they're so expensive.

(Now in process of applying a credit card since I want Nanoha figuring bad...)

I think Admiral Lindy would make for a great model for figuring actually. Although I like Nanoha the most.

I wish the Wonder Festival ones didn't cost nearly $2000. They had an awesome Vita, a (albeit ugly) Reinforce (boss version) and one of the three girls in teen form lounging on a sofa.

Panzer, if you run into credit problems, try a NextWavePlus Titanium Mastercard. You don't actually go in debt with them and the application took me ten minutes or so. I use one because my credit is shot. You just load however much money you need onto it.

I've ordered this Fate one:
http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview....EY=NEOSL-11303
I think its pretty dynamic looking...

On Nanoha, I've got the Movic one pre-ordered and the Good Smile one... but I may put the Movic one up for sale as soon as I get it depending on how it looks -- I kind of like my characters to be the same scale for a series.

I have the one that is already out by AtSai ... but the feet wings keep falling off and her expression is kind of bland. May sell it down the road too if the Good Smile one looks good in RL.

Now... the burning question is --- when will the StrikerS series figures come out?

Uhwa? Do you have a picture of that Vita figure?

Edit: While looking for a pic of the Vita figure, I found a pic of the more expensive Fate figure, but she was holding Bardiche in Scythe Form instead of Zanba Form. Bah I wish that one were on the market ><;

Agreed...I'm bumfuzzled as to why they're pushing the sword form when Scythe form or even just his simple "poleaxe" form really looks good.

in nanoha A's they were trying to change her into a knight class melee type, and the sword form is her new strongest physical attack. they did the same with nanoha, she has the winged type raging heart in the PVC figures.

I too thought Scythe Form was way cooler. Anyone can swing around a huge sword. It takes a real badass to swing a scythe

Stryker. What would this guy think of next?


Bardiche is really, really sweet. I love all of its modes.
When it comes to combat weapon, I suppose we're short of only dagger to conclude almost every form of medieval arm. Well javelin and pike's covered so...

I figure if Yuuno fought he'd have a dagger. Tho unless using two and being extremely fast, daggers are generally very uncool, I find.

As for the models, try imageboards like the chans or Danbooru. Niche odd pics like those are pretty tough to find. About as tough to find as the models are.
