Hi guys! Time for a review! Here’s Queen’s Blade’s Cattleya! I got her from Philippines summer ToyCon 2013 in a mystery bag. She came with 1/7 Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver. (An Oath and a Little Wish) inside the mystery bag.

This will be my first ever Nendoroid figure. Upon searching information about this figure, I found out that this is a limited edition. I planned to sell it but in the end I decided to keep it for myself as my first Nendoroid.

Let’s take a look at the box:

Nothing special about the box, normal nendoroid box. I recently noticed that newer Nendoroid have a newer box layout yes? The one with the big numbers on the side.

Here are the extra parts: 1 extra body, 1 extra face plate, 2 extra legs that are in sitting position, 2 arms, and a hand for handling the spear.DSC_1805 copy

Some simple shoots to showcase the figure:

The spear is sculpted well, no paint bleeds whatsoever.

Should I display her using this pose?:

She comes with another figure, a boy who I don’t know because I have no idea yet about Queen’s Blade.

Overall, I’m quite surprised by the quality of this Nendoroid figure, no paint bleeds, colors are correct and solid, no paint transfers, sculpt is superb! So far I did not encounter any problems with this Nendoroid, aside from the fact that she can’t stand on her own, but most Nendoroids do not stand on their own anyway right? If you’re a fan of Queen’s Blade, then this is a nice figure to have!

Till next post! Thanks for viewing! 🙂

1/7 Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver. (An Oath and a Little Wish)

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver 26Hi guys! This going to be my first 1/7 PVC anime figure review!  1/7 Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver. by Alter! I got her during the Philippine Toy Convention 2013 at the Hobby Japan magazine booth! They had a special offer in which they are selling “lucky bags” for only a thousand (Php1000) pesos! At first I thought it maybe a scam or it might not be worth it, but then again, those were real Japanese vendors from Hobby Japan, they came all the way to Japan to promote the seven deadly sins figures such as Leviathan(envy) and the others.

And so me and my friends tried to interview them a bit with regards to what were the contents of the “lucky bag”, they just said that it contained figures, then as we investigated further, we found out that inside the lucky bag contained a Limited Edition 1/7 Fate Testarossa figure, a Limited Edition Nendoroid that I will make a post later on, a seven deadly sins shirt, a seven deadly sin character mini scroll and a seven deadly sins sticker! And so we thought it’s already a super great deal! A PVC statue and a nendoroid for only 1000Php?! That’s beyond crazy and comprehension!

And so me and my friends got the deal, at first I planned to sell them rather than opening them, but upon posting the items for more than a week, nobody took notice of my posting and I also noticed that even one post in ebay that is already pretty old never got sold. There’s no demand sadly, but I’m still happy that I got a figure and a Nendoroid for only 1000Php! So why not open it and keep it in my collection! And so here we are!

I present to you 1/7 Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver. from the 1st movie!:

Though I haven’t watched this anime before, maybe sometime in the future!

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver 37

She’s really quite simple with a sadlike or meh facial expression. It’s hard to make out what kind of emotion she”s trying to express..

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver 44

It’s annoying to see a tiny black mark on her left pig tail XD

Let’s get into the details:

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver  1

I have no idea what the gold triangle she’s holding is, anyone can tell me?

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver  2

The ribbon on her blouse is nicely sculpted, but like it could break if you bend it.

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver  5

The frills on her skirt are nice, haven’t seen any paint bleeds.

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver  6

One thing I’ve always liked about PVC figures that I have seen throughout other blogs are the nails! You can see the pinkish nails on her fingers.

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver  8

 No paint bleeds on her wristband also:

I like the sculpt of her hair, it’s nice and dynamic looking:

No paint bleed on her boots, I like that they made her boots glossy.

Clean thighs, no marks on her knees

Of course, no figure review would be complete without some pantsu shots!

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver 19

Its amazing the detail of how they sculpt anime figures, from 2d anime to a 3d figure, just amazing!

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver 20

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver 23

Nice and glossy!

Fate Testarossa Plain Clothes Ver 24

The base is simple and reflective, better than nothing.

Overall, she’s a simple figure with no extra accessories or extra gimmicks but a nice figure to have because of the sculpt quality and a clean paint job. Had fun in taking photographs of her and its the 1st time I tried using some gimmicks on the background haha! I’m happy I got her for such a low price along with a Nendoroid. That’s it for today! Stay tuned for the Nendoroid post! 😀

Toy Con 2013 Philippines

Toy Con 2013

Hi guys! I went to the annual Toy Convention last Saturday and boy, there were a lot of people! The queue to the ticket booth was long! Good thing I went early and did not experience any lines. Though the tickets to the convention could actually be bought online, I guess a good number of people does not know that. Anyway, without further delay, here are my photos during the convention, it’s mostly toy displays:

Ozine Fest 2012 – Part I (Figure Exhibit Table 1)

I went to this year’s Ozine Fest! It’s already been years since the last time I went to a Ozine Fest! For this year they had a figure collector’s exhibit, organized by Team-Onichan, there were a lot of figures whether it be 1/8 scale pvc statues, nendos and figmas, I took a LOT of pictures so I will be posting everything part by part.

Various events were held and there were a lot of toy, anime stores. Events included a LoL tournament, Anime Karaoke contest, Anime Band contest, straight build gunpla competition (which in my opinion really sucked, will explain in the next posts), cosplay competition, eating contests, anime figure photo shoot contest and art contests.
