So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]
Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]
I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]
It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]
Still have yet to finish strikers but ever since I saw A’s I knew I had to own a Hayate figure! So who cares if she’s from Strikers or not, she’s so awesome and was impossible to pass up. The moment she was announced i pre-ordered so quickly cause i didn’t want to risk not getting her at all or having to pay much more cause i waited too long.
Alter has been releasing some amazing Nanoha figures and it’s hard to pass them up, yet i’ve already passed on Signum, Vita, Teena and Subaru. But i do have a feeling i’m going to regret that choice soon.
Hayate here is so awesome that just looking at her makes me want to finish up Strikers.
I love the black wings, they just make her look so badass.
You can change her head and I totally forget why her hair gets lighter…
But when her hair is lighter it makes the blue in her eyes pop
Little Reinforce included as well, i’ve got her pre-ordered from this recent re-release, can’t wait to get her. At elast she’ll be better than this little one, looks like someone mashed in her face here.
You can attach Reinforce to Hayate, Hayate comes with two wings one that doesn’t hold up Reinforce and one that does, it’s a paint to change but looks awesome. Hayate isn’t my biggest figure, but she did come in the biggest box. I was astounded at the sheer size of not only the box she came in but the box Kid Nemo used to ship her to me.
I don’t know if i want to keep the box or not since it says Fraulein Yoko on it. I’m so sentimental with things like that and I can be quite the pack rat so I’m gonna have to figure out what to do with big box.
Hayate really is just such an amazing figure, Having her makes me want to run out and order the rest of the Alter Nanoha ladies. I’m getting the new Nanoha and Fate for sure but i might have to track down Signum, both Vitas, Subaru and Teena along with the Reinforce i’ve got ordered. Hayate’s outfit is so greatly detailed and nothing was overlooked. I do have some small complaints, her staff likes to fall out of her hand when you even breathe next to her, and her legs are a bit pale and thick. I feel like the legs are just a bit too thick and make her seem bulky rather than feminine. But then it might just be the pose and not so much her legs. Other than that everything on Hayate is amazing. Reinforce is another thing, she looks like someone just mashed her face in with a mallet. For being such a small figure she’s decent but i’ve seen Gashapons that look way better than Reinforce here. Still she’s not so bad that she’d deter anyone from buying Hayate. Other than the price or the sheer size of the box that shipping is going to cost you. I just hope Alter finds out a way to maybe be a little more economical when it comes to box size for those of us who save our boxes or i’ll run out of space soon enough.
