Figure Review

Review: Ex_resinya! Fate Testarossa

Greetings one and all to…ummm…yea, it’s yet another crap weather day month! Yaaay~

So if it’s gonna be melancholy weather why not go with a melancholy character? Today will take a look at Fate-chan by Cospa.

It’s a rather odd that for all my love for the Nanoha series, I have yet to get a Fate figure until now. Part of that has to do with none of them quite having the look I’d like, and the other would be that I’m not actually the biggest Fate fan. I’m ok with her younger self, but she loses a lot of appeal as she ages in the series for me, whereas I think Nanoha just gets better and better!

The one thing I had hoped for was a pair of Nano and Fate figures that really fit together well, because in addition to getting me into loli, the series also got me into yuri thus I adore the two of them as a pair. With the releases of the new movie it looked like my wish might finally be granted with several companies making paired figures of the two, but sadly these all fell flat for one reason or another…

The Wave Beach Queen figures are extremely sub par looking (Especially Fate), the FREEing figures look like trading figures with their tiny size and woefully low quality, and lastly the Cospa figures are absurdly overpriced (After I had already written this Koto actually announced a nice pair of the two as well.). Thankfully, Cospa Fate has been going on sale a lot lately and I decided to take the plunge when AmiAmi put a big fat discount on her!
