Kotobukiya is going to release the Takamachi Nanoha ( 高町 なのは ) Casual wear Ver. ( 私服Ver. ) 1/8 PVC figure form the anime movie “Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 1st” ( 魔法少女リリカルなのは THE MOVIE 1st ). Will be released on January 2011. Around 165mm tall, 5,800 yen.

Like I said in the “Coming Soon” post, both Alter and Kotobukiya are making the loli Nanoha and Fate casual wear version PVC figure. Alter’s are in 1/7 scale and cost 6,800 yen and Kotobukiya’s are in 1/8 scale and cost 5,800 yen. In term of Price-Scale, they are about the same. But in term of quality of final products, Alter is way better than Kotobukiya. So I guess most people will prefer the Alter’s unless you can’t afford the extra 1,000 yen.

To me I prefer Kotobukiya’s unless the final product is really unacceptable. Saving “1,000 yen x 2 = 2,000 yen” is quite a lot for me. So I’ll not pre-order her until I see the final product. Let’s hope that she would be sold out right away in the first week. =P
