It’s been a while since my last pre-order post: Miku World is Mine but now there are 2 great figures being released on October by Alter. One is Saber Lily 1/8 and the other is Nanoha Takamachi 1/7. Being manufactured by Alter, they both are quite pricey especially Nanoha but of course, sometimes price is no longer an issue for us figure collectors when it’s from our favourite series. Make use of your credit card people ^^ and have fun paying it on the next month ^^;;. More pictures below via Hobby Search.
I think it’s too early to say which one is the better Saber Lily, GSC or Alter until I receive both on my hands. Based on the pictures alone, my preference is slightly leaning towards the GSC version. In term of details, they both are on par with each other, however, GSC version has Distant Avalon noble Phantasm which adds an extra value for purchasing it. In addition, GSC version base has more details than Alter’s plain base. I believe both are still worth buying though. Do you preorder GSC version , Alter version or both ?
Takamichi Nanoha Exceed Mode
Just couple months ago, we were amazed by Fate T Harlaown True sonic form by Alter and now, Alter introduces Takamichi Nanoha Exceed Mode ver.. Those 4 little things on the side look great and the wings on her feet are also awesome, however, all great figures come with a price and this one is no exception. Hobby Search is selling her for 12,160 Yen and she will be released on the same month as Saber Lily. Do you pre-order both Saber Lily and Nanoha ? I know I will be broke on October since I pre-ordered both >.>
A quick summary of my pre-orders for the next couple months:
- Fate T-Harlaown True Sonic Form by Alter (12,160 yen)
- Saber Lily -Distant Avalon- by GSC (8,867 yen)
- Black Rock Shooter by GSC (8,867 yen)
I barely met my restriction for only 1 figure per month average. I got nothing coming in May and June since Saber Lily -Distant Avalon- got delayed to end of August 2009 so I should not pre-order anything until December 2009. A question suddenly pops in my head for my fellow readers and lurkers. How many figures do you get per month in average and do you limit yourself on how many figures you can buy in a month ? Don’t forget to include impulse buying on your answers ;p
