Frilly Figure Review#04: Fate T. Harlaown Figma

Hi everyone and welcome to another figure review. Today I got my hands on a new program called Adobe Lightroom3(Until now I've been using CS4). For those of us with old cameras(mine is a 6 mega-pixel Sony I got YEARS ago)...a good photo editing program is a must. There's so much to Lightroom that I've yet to explore, but I really love the way it presents your photos. It's just really user friendly. 

-you can open each picture in a new tab if you want a bigger view.

Anyways, please enjoy this review of one of my grails!

Final Thoughts/Review:

  • Sculpt: 9/10
  • Painting: 8/10
  • Base: 9/10
  • Pose ability: 9/10
  • Packaging: 9/10
  • Enjoyment: 10/10
  • Total Score: 54/60
This figure is indeed my grail but I won't let that alter the truth. Overall the sculpt is very nice, remember this is an older figure. Most of the Nanoha Figmas have major QC problems(loose head pieces, poor paint jobs, etc). The painting wasn't that bad on fate which I was pretty pleased with. The figma base as always is very good. This figure can indeed support it's accessories which makes it great for almost any dynamic pose you can think of. This figure is pretty hard to come by(for retail price at least), but when it does get randomly may want to jump on it.

Once again, thanks for the read!!
