That's the one I was referring to.

Not knockin' the design, but if I had to choose a tank to go up against with nothing but a Barrett that'd be it...

Heh. I think it'd be a suitable kind of metahumor to get more hardware discussion going on here than in the forums for mecha and military shows...

I think the hands on all the Nanoha figures are pretty much fixed, but as Dragnfly said, the weapons are attachable/detachable.
not necessary, according to this Fate Figure done by GMC (Good Smile Company) http://www.riuva.com/?p=211, it seems like her lightning cloak can be taken off completely. However, i pre-order the Alter's Fate --> http://www.hlj.com/product/ALT20127, I like this one much better, cant wait till November to pick her up. Anyways, do anyone know if Alter's Fate cloak can be taken off? if so, that be awesome. I also have plans for GMC's Nanoha but my wallet says "No"

True that, 3 of my figures ( 2 of which are still in pre-order) are already Alter. Yea, really what Alter makes really appeals to me, but I also like Good Smile Company and Clayz but some of it doesnt attract me that much as Alter

The Nanoha figurine that I put the order in is Alter as well. Good Smile's Nanoha in Excelion feels a little lacking and yes, I do like the 'main cannon' form for RH instead of device mode. What I plan to do is to modify the RH so that Nanoha would have the fins out and going full steam and to make an Excelion mode staff head for RH (I think that would look good for Nanoha in her pose). For that, I need to figure out how big is the shaft though if I want to allow for several different heads to be fitted with the shaft. It's going to take a while since I put ISAL on it.

(although suggestions on what should Nanoha the figurine should be holding weapon wise would be a great topic all in itself... maybe she should raid Golden Pikachu's treasury)

I've ordered them all (like some idiot Pokemon hunter) and will sort out the best Fate/Nanoha combo to keep and ebay the rest at hopefully some profit.
So far... I like the "magic circle" stands and the "column of fire" stand, but I *really* prefer Bardiche in his poleaxe or scythe form and Raging Heart in her angular piercing form (can't recall the name) --- and of course, none of those are on the same figure.

the humongous sword figure looks like an failed lesson in gravity and force vectors. What the hell are they thinking?

How big is the sword Vexx? For swords of ridiculous size, 1/8 Buster sword is at close to 21cm from tip to hilt, the Masemune at 25cm. (guess where I got'em from)

Haven't gotten the Big Sword Fate yet (still on order) ... but looking at the pics... and assuming Fate is 20cm ... as best as I can measure it Bardiche swordform may come in at nearly 30cm. Its not the length alone that bothers... its the horizontal placement and Fate's tiny arms I fear for .... much less the chance the figure may not be able to stand without stickyglue on the shelf.

I was thinking of buying the GSC Fate for the Zankantou but upon closer inspection, I noticed that the clear blade was already sagging.

I have both Fate figures on order and yeah, that one coming out next week is totally gonna need added support. And it doesn't look like it comes with any either.

Oh, well. If Saimoe goes as planned I can have it resting on the shoulder of my Shana figure, ready to lop.

Wow. Here's a figurine of Nanoha w. Excelion mode RH. I like this more than the other one.

May I ask is that a resin kit? I like how she holds up her RH Staff. However, it'be much more better if she has those pink flying gears on her legs and her RH opening up in the firing mode for Starlight Breaker. Im thinking of getting GSC Nanoha just for those reasons. However my wallet only let me grab the Alter Fate. Ah well is all for Fate-Chan she better thank me for sacrificing my wallet for her

I'd guess it's resin and not PVC, looking at the seams on RH.

Still tho. Pretty cool. I'd prefer it to have the flier fins too, as well as the pink potrusion on the end of RH and wings. But then again I like things on figures that look good when lights are shined on them.

I know as much about that resin figurine as everyone else here. I can't afford it anyway since no thanks to Carmina Burana turning my Fatechan into Gigaworks S700 instead... (5.1, so minus 2 satellite speakers from this pic, which I did not take.) I spared Nanoha nonetheless.


Fatechan is moe~

After two whole weeks, my Nanoha figurine finally has arrived.

Now... as we all know from StrikerS the COMICS, Nanoha is unable to get additional upgrade on RH following A's, which forces her to 'innovate'... by brushing up none other than the dual wield school 小太刀二刀・御神流 Kodachi Nitou - Mikamiryu and modify it to suit her taste better...



...and calling that 大太刀二刀・御神流なのは版 / Odachi nitou - Mikamiryu Nanoha style. Shouldn't it be called なのは流 instead?
(Wait, I thought First Tsurugi's madeup of 6 swords in itself...)

Basically, yeah. I can't really see anything new in here, it's just a collection of various posters, the DVD covers without text on them and the like, often with plenty of white space on either side too because the images weren't the right size. Can't really say it's worth buying unless that's all you want. Glad I forgot about it until now, really. As for the standees, I'd rather have the Alter Fate I still have on preorder.

Speaking of which, looks like they've stopped taking preorders for that, so I hope those who wanted one got their order in in time.

There were some nice things that were sold at Comic Market 70 in August, but I haven't had any luck finding any of them. They can be seen on the official site, here.
