Okay, I’ve been playing too much WOW lately, I kept putting this off ^^; But here it is at last, my review on Alter’s new masterpiece; Subaru Nakajima, from the awesome Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS series~ It took me time, but I’m finally sharing this figure’s awesomeness with you guys ^^

Originally, when Alter was releasing the StrikerS series one by one, I had only wanted the 3 aces. I really don’t like Subaru much in the anime, so even though the Teana figure looked nice, I wasn’t sure I wanted it if it meant no Subaru beside her (kinda silly having the 3 aces and only one Striker beside them =/) but then Alter had to release this beauty, and I knew I had to get it no matter what, regardless of how much I like Subaru 😄

You could say that I love every single detail in this figure 😄 It’s seriously not an exaggeration :p The only thing I might not like much is that piece on the kuckles, it looks kinda badly cut and stuck =/

I love how the eye got kinda covered lol

lol at the ribbon XD

The way the whirls from revolver knuckle get kinda entwined with the ribbon is really nice =3 When I was placing the ribbon in its place, I was kinda skeptical (I really don’t like it in the anime -_-;;) but after I changed the wrist thing from the plain one, to the one with the whirl thingies, it looked pretty cool ;p

Darn shorts >.<

Were the wings always this big o.O?

I think my face went kinda pale when I saw that tiny pole as the only support -_-;; Sure it’s plastic, and the skates are also plastic from the bottom, but I still get scared it might start leaning too much or something >.< Oh yeah, I mentioned when I first got the figure that it looks really lively, to the point of making you think it’s gonna move any minute… Honestly, I think I got that feeling because of how much the figure keeps shaking ^^; I had to put it in front of the fan for a bit, and it just wouldn’t stop shaking o.O No wonder I got the impression it was about to move XP

CHARGE!!

CHARGE!!

All in all, I’m really happy with this figure ^^ Almost as much as when I got Hayate’s 😄 (In case you didn’t know, Hayate is my favorite Lyrical Nanoha character. Damn, she might even be my all time favorite anime character 😄 So obviously nothing beats the delight of when I got that figure :p) I don’t know how long I kept admiring it lol Seriously, it even made me say that Subaru looks beautiful 😄 I’d never say that about the 2D anime version XP

    nice review, have been waiting for this :p

    I like the blue-light effect you added for the photo (or is it coincidence ? ) lol

    so far, my favorite figure of MGLN is hayate too (i’m expecting the new fate later will take the throne :P). Her skirt is so huge.

    Screw Alter, they know how to rape our wallet T_T

      The blue light thing wasn’t entirely coincidence :p I was kinda waiting for the right time of the day to take the pictures. Thing is, originally, I was just waiting for the sun to be in the right position, but it’s been kinda cloudy these days, so I got even luckier with the pics XP
