Alter Valkyria Chronicles Selvaria Bles Figure
Following up my post from yesterday of ebCraft's 1/6 Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles, today we have Alter's 1/7 scale version! This one just arrived in the mail yesterday, and was released last week.
Alter has chosen to portray Selvaria in her iconic pose - threatening Welkin's troops with her lance at the ready. Isn't it amazing? You can also display her with her cape and no lance or shield. Let's take a look at the box first.
I'm scared already.
The front of the box has a goregeous closeup shot and a nice window showing off the figure inside.
The right side of the box lets you see what she looks like without her lance and the cape on.
The left side of the box. Careful where you point that thing!
The back of the box
Here's Selvaria without her lance and shield. This is what she'd look like when issuing an order to her troops.
A lower angle, gives it some dramatic flair
Closeup so you can see the details on her face. This is currently my iPad wallpaper!
Who you lookin' at?
While she's perfectly capable of balancing without the support stand for the lance, mine has already started to drop after just 24 hours. Even with a metal rod reinforcing the arm internally, it doesn't look like this anymore without the support of the stand. It's angled downward a few degrees. A disappointing turn.
The detail on her leggings is incredible.
Check out the back!
Here are both figures side by side. You can see that even though ebCraft's figure is 1/6 scale and Alter's is 1/7 scale, the Alter figure is actually slightly larger. While the ebCraft figure might slightly edge it out on height if it were standing straight up, it's all a lot thinner all around.
ebCraft's base wins hands down though.
A closeup of both figures. Notice the blue highlights on her hair on the ebCraft version. Look at how much more detailed Alter's version's lips are.
ebCraft's version has a more accurately sculpted face. Alter's is too round and her eyes are a different shape.
The ebCraft lance (on the top) is much more accurately crafted, including a sliding rear section and increased detail to the rear of the handle.
However, Alter's lance has a blue-glow gradient to it that makes it look like it's powering up.
