Her cape is secured with screws at the rear, my friend. Her head should not come off easily. Mine's all secure.

Actually, My Goodsmile Fate comes with her head off, so you can have her with or without the cape. I plan on having her cape-less during summer It comes off pretty easily but is secure enough not to worry about it.

Yeah, then I totally broke it trying to get in around those twist ties. Oh, well. Shamal will have to be right there with some healing, I guess. In the form of epoxy cement. Cures whatever ails ya if you're made of vinyl or resin.

So of course I'll post some pictures when she's fixed. I'll post another pic when my "mystery suprise Nanoha figure" comes in.

Yeah, those twist ties are a killer. And the plastics hold the Zanber down is a bitch to push aside.

I just took a knife to it, actually. As a matter of fact, the knife I used was about as long as zanber

Finally found a decently priced GSC Nanoha. Sure, the face isn't accurate but by Haruhi, the hot-blooded spirit of A's is there in the pose and her mouth opened in incantation.

amazon.co.jp ships internationally. I'm Canadian and I order from there frequently. I just have one .ca window open and the .jp window open and follow the form through, then cancel my english order. That's how I got my Read or Die novels.

Buh? Why was that necessary? Amazon JP ship most stuff internationally (but not games or anything to do with them, figures etc). Magazines are fine... but where does having the canadian one up come into it?

Well, not everybody can read Japanese so he uses the English page to be able to tell what he's clicking. (Kanji are annoying >_<)

Amazon JP has just about every page available in English. It's one of the blue buttons at the top and should it ever reset itself there'll be a 'Would you like to view this page in English? somewhere around the top right.

Very dynamic posing, the face is decent (not as grim as I'd like), the energy feathers are translucent and the dress fabric hang makes me feel like I should run a fan for flutter effect. The *only* complaint I have is that this is the first model that does not use a transparent red plastic for RH's core ball. Its painted (though hardly noticeable amongst all the energy flair). The funny thing is that my favorite part is her shoes... they have the heft and bulk of tank boots (like the anime) rather than the flimsier things the other models have.



Made it easy to pack up "bland Nanoha" for ebay ... I now have two Fates and two Nanoha that will be fun to display.
My new masterpiece has arrived It looks better than your photos Damn, it looks better than the shop photos, too And I second the shoes comment. They get noticed pretty fast. You get this "get out of my way or I'll crush you" feeling from the shoes I hope she doesn't try to be friends with my other figures, I've paid a lot to see them reduced to piles of plastic debris

@Xellos-_^ I've left some comments for you in the general Anime Figure thread

I wouldn't waste my time trying to order figures from amazon.co.jp .. as someone pointed out much of the time they're just a front for smaller shops, many of whom don't ship internationally. The only thing I use them for is manga.
yesasia.com is infamous with me for claiming to have stuff, waiting two months with my money being held.. then admitting they don't have it in stock. I don't use yesasia anymore.

www.hlj.com and cdjapan.co.jp have never failed me yet.

@npal ... she is impressive, is she not? Her and the "on a gold flame pillar" Fate just dominate my collection.
