Hello guys, It’s Eric again.

This time I would like to share you the main character on Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS‘ line, Nanoha Takamachi.

Since this is my first time in reviewing figma figures since I joined Figmania, please do not hesitate to give your critic(s) and/or suggestion(s).

OK, without *bla bla* anymore, let’s start the review.

A Glance of  The Character

Several years after Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A’s story, Lieutenant Colonel Hayate Yagami has been appointed as the chief commander of Mobile Six section, along with her dearest friends, Captain Takamachi Nanoha and Enforcer Fate T. Harlaown.

Nanoha is an aerial-type specialist in combat accompanied by her intelligent device, Rising Heart Excelion. She is also known as “Ace of the Aces”  for her S+ rank mage.

The Package

This figure was the first to be mass-produced in Nanoha StrikerS figma line back in May 2008. Below is the front-side of the box

[UPDATE] This product was once re-issued in early 2009, please CMIIW *

*I am sorry that I have unboxed it before taking picture of it, lol*

As we can see, the package includes :

  • The figure itself.
  • 4 pairs of optional hand parts.
  • 1 swapable faceplate.
  • 1 swapable front-hair part.
  • 1 pair pink-colored wing effect.
  • 1 rod.
  • 2 swapable parts of Raising Heart forms (the one to be put on the tip of the rod).
  • 1 figma stand base.

As Raising Heart Excelion is Nanoha’s main weapon, Max Factory provides two shapes of it in order to be more detailed and resembled to the TV series.

Be very careful when you attach wing effect parts on her shoes since they are a little bit fragile. They are made from thin-clear plastic and painted using two toned concept.

And don’t forget to give more spaces when you keep them in your storage.

Oh, and by the way, her under-jacket is detachable, and I think she is way better wearing mini-skirt only, lol.

[UPDATE] I did read some information that there is a counterfeit product of this figma, and Nanoha is the only one among her comrades in Nanoha StrikerS line. However, I have found no further differences regarding the bootleg and the original ones.

[UPDATE] So be aware guys !!
