[COSPA] Fate Testarossa Movie Version

cospa_fate_01So in-line with Alter's recent release of their 1/7 Fate Testarossa Movie Version PVC Figure, COSPA was quick to also put out their own version.  Though less advertised, COSPA's version is definitely something you do not want to miss.  This figure by COSPA has it’s advantages over the Alter release, as the entire figure is not suspended in the air.  Though lacking in the awesome pose, Fate’s cape is still something to behold.  The facial expression is a lot more serene as Fate is captured in a non-action scene.

[Alter] 1/7 Fate Testarossa Movie Version

Seen previously as an unpainted prototype, Alter will finally be releasing the theatrical figure version of Fate Testarossa. The figure appears to come with 2 separate weapons and a possibility of interchangeable arms for different poses. Alter is no stranger to figures from the Nanoha series having released a ton of them. The figure is skillfully sculpted from the attention to the physical details of the cape and hair, to the baby fat in Fate's arm. Unfortunately as a consistent complaint I have had with Alter figures are the plain bases. Hopefully the finalized product will break the mold. Fate will be released in late November with an estimated wallet sinking retail price of 12,390 yen. Pictures included inside.
