Figures Photoshoots

Fate Testarossa - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A’s

Fate Testarossa

Ah~ The second last photo shoot from Manifest 2007, the other being Pachira. I know I know, I’m slower than a sloth on sleeping pills climbing up a steep slippery slope.

Anyway, I’ll try to get up to date with my photos during this month, as I’ll be pretty busy once I go back to Uni >.<
Next photo shoot will be Pachira, before moving onto Tsukino~

I won’t keep you waiting, Fate awaits~!

Location

This was between the old Arts Building where Saber/Irisviel were and the quad area where Princess/Pachira were. There were a few people who walked by but generally it wasn’t too busy, mostly people for the Manifest festivities.

Setup

No mini-tripod, which could of helped quite a bit. I noticed quite a bit of blurring with most of the pictures and had to dump them. In the sun it was ok, but it was a pretty harsh sun. The shaded areas were decent but that’s where the blurring was at it’s worse. Excuse the crappy photography with this photo shoot ^^;

Figure

Now this figure isn’t actually mine, it belongs to the friend of mine who managed to get the Yuki Dollfie for me. Moé Bless his Soul. So, while he’s in Japan, he entrusted some of his figures to me, and I thoguht it’d be the perfect opportunity to take photos of them.
As most of you already know, this Fate is excellent, nuff said.

Thoughts

Mini-tripod, never leave home without it…
I’m not so happy about this photo shoot but oh well, Fate’s ass makes it up *stare*
I’ve notice that this is prolly the only photo shoot that has more than a few “pantsu” shots.

Summary

I’d buy myself one of these figures but I don’t have the space…her box is larger than my Xbox360′s box @_@; Hell, it’s larger than my Dollfie’s box!
Any Fate fan should have this figure, and if they don’t, go and order one, there’s a restock happening soon~

  1. Sweet pics. I’m guessing you transported her around in her original box? If not, you’re one awesome individual and would sure like to know how you did it ^^

    Lovely figure for sure even if it does take up quite a fair amount of space, I would willingly give up a fair amount of space for her and I did ^^ Great that she’s having a restock too as it seems many people seemed to have missed out. One of the nicer if not nicest figure released for the Nanoha line.

  2. ^^
    I had to use the box to carry her, as I had other figures to carry as well, and didn’t want to damage something that isn’t mine.

    I agree that she’s prolly one of the nicest Nanoha figure there is.

    Um, I got a question, what happened to your blog? o_O

  3. yup her box is really huge and it’s not safe transporting her without the box. she’s definitely the nicest from the Nanoha line, wish I could say the same for Movic Strikers line. btw the last shot is nice, and funny :D

  4. nice pics, somehow her clothes seems abit brighter, must be because of the sun ^^

    last photo is cute tho :D

    ron~’s last blog post: Comment error fixed

  5. Yay, another person who understands the sheer awesomeness of the box that Fate came in. Still I’m rather surprised that you took this one outside as being a large figure, it could easily get damaged if not careful.

  6. @valho, ya, I’m a lil dissapointed in the movic line of figures =/ now if only Alter would make a good Vita figure…

    @ron~, it was really sunny XD ….I hate being in the sun for that long lol

    @Adun, indeed, her box is borderline ridiculous. I was extremely careful, and it was in a large carrybag along with other figures in it. Was somewhat fun carrying massive amounts of moé in one hand XD

  7. Fate is a beast and the box she comes in even beastlier. It’s a great figure. Also, get one!

  8. Probably the queen of loli figures XD, if I remember correctly the box of this figure must almost as big as a PG box. It’s really a great figure but for someone who has a lot of space

  9. Kawaii Pantsu Desu.

  10. Nicely done in University of Melbourne.
    I wish they could make one nice one for Nanoha with the short skirt :D (Nanoha Striker!)

  11. Indeed, Fate is awesome; a must-have for any Nanoha fan.

  12. Just as FYI: the Weasel Plush in the last pic was mine. ^_^

  13. @super rats, beast indeed, I would get one if I had some spare cash, right now I’m really REALLY in the deep end with my funds >.<

    @Belela-san, and she looks like it too XD the box is thicker than a PG, but the PG is larger in width and height~

    @Danny Choo, sou ne~

    @Kirakun, I want one of Vita or Hayate >.<

    @Zeroblade, I guess that’s why they’re re-releasing her, must be quite a demand XD

    @Wavehawk, now get a cigarette for it!

  17. If you are not available to take the accepted offer, another buyer could
    step in and trump your offer and take the home away from
    you. A great attorney can make it easier for you personally to create great options for your future.

    them should be checking the website of the California Bar Association.
