Review: 1/7 Scale Fate Testarossa ~Phantom Minds~ by Alter

February 19, 2011

We have well established figure producers like GSC, Max Factory, Kotobukiya, Wave, Freeing and Megahouse that always churn out quality products. Then we have Alter. I don’t think many would disagree with me when I say that Alter is definitely one of the best, or if not the best, figure maker at this point in time. What can I say? Alter’s figures are definitely a league above all other brands. Their figures are consistently excellent, utilizing one of the best feeling materials, having quality paint jobs, gorgeous poses and intricate sculpts. This usually yields a figure that any collector would be proud to own and proud to have displayed on his shelf.

Now, why am I singing such high praise of Alter from the get go? Well, that’s because it’s true.

…and also because I’ve been completely smitten by their latest offering in their Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha figure line, their 1/7 Scale Fate Testarossa figure.

Transforming Getter Robo Paper ‘Doll’

February 16, 2011

I have a confession to make. Sometimes, when I should be studying, I make stuff out of paper card. What do I mean? Well, some of the ‘projects’ that I were more proud of were my transforming paper Transformers. There were basically something like a 2D Optimus Prime that when folded, would yield a 3D truck. In short, I love looking and analyzing the transformation process of robots and recreating it with paper.

So anyways, awhile back, around September 09, I was fuming over how there weren’t any ‘perfect change/transforming’ Getter Robo figures that didn’t cost a billion dollars (because Getter Robo is one of my all time favorite Super Robots). It was then I decided to make one for myself… out of paper.

And now, I’m sharing the fruits of my labor with you guys. (^.^)
