This week Jeff threw me a curve ball. Or maybe a screw ball; they say those are becoming increasingly uncommon in Major League Baseball.

Specifically Wave’s surprisingly detailed 1/12 model of a Viewlix cabinet for the game Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold. My task was:

The Queens Blade Revoltech series are the figures that got me into collecting in earnest. My first was Erina, purchased on the last day of a convention because I was impressed by the variety of accessories and the articulation at the price. My tastes have changed a lot since then, but it’s still a goal to collect the entire 1P color scheme. Nanael was one that I had on the back burner for a while, but I was recently fortunate enough to come into one, SIB and effectively brand new.

QB004 Nanael is a part of the Kaiyodo Revoltech articulated figure line, Queens Blade series, is 1/12 scale and was released in September of 2009 at ¥2900.
