Erio Mondial & Caro Ru Lushe figma by Max Factory

Release Date: (Erio) February 2011 - (Caro) March 2011
Price: 3500 yens each
Size: (Erio) 115 cms, (Caro) 14 cms
My Rating: 9/10 (both)

Double update for a couple!!!
These two figmas were two i never expected to ever see being released, Caro and Erio are Fate T. Harlaown's protégés and the youngest members in Nanoha StrikerS and are seen in the show as cooperative teammates with caro supporting Erio with her magic and later on as a couple. Thus Max Factory decided to pack Caro with extra effect parts for Strada, Erio's weapon.

Erio Himself owns some effect parts to recreated 3 modes for Strada while Caro can attach several fins effect to recreate Kerykeion's 2nd and 3rd mode. Caro also comes with her pet dragon Friedrich whom a repleacable head can be used to make him breath fire and is posable in the head and legs area. Both have the usual neutral face and action face like all Nanoha figma series. Finally Caro comes with an atachable ponytail to recreate her slightly older self.



With these two the Nanoha StrikerS series is complete unless Max Factory decides to release Vivio and every cyborg villain seen in the series (one can only hope).

Sakura Matou Evening Preparation ver.

Release Date: November 2006
Price: 6800
Size: 29.5 cms, scaled 1/6
My Rating: 10/10

Recently aquired this rare piece after 2 years of searching for a deal and i cannot say that i am dissapointed.
This Sakura is part of a Hollow Atararaxia serie by goodsmile, like the Holiday ver. of Saber, just looking at both figures and its easy to see the ressemblances in the sculpt. She's a beauty down to every curves that were faithfully respected, her uniform is perfectly recreated save for the sleeves wich are a tad shiny, but its acceptable for a 2006 figure. Her long hair with her ribbon flowing back is a nice touch and her face bearing her empty but beautifull eyes and slight smile is captivating. Something that was especially worked on this figure is her grocery bag, its been made so we can see some of the products inside appear thru the bag's plastic, the negi appearing from the side can even be removed (and be played with by a figma or something :p), her school bag has been given a leather like look also.

Of course, only real Sakura fans will really apreciate this figure, but it can be a nice addition to your collection if your into schoolgirls. :p
