After days of debating, I decided to pass on this one. The more I look at the photos, the more the composition starts to bother me. Why are her legs spread so wide and her shoulders raised while she's turning? And since her sword tip is lower than the top of the stone, doesn't that mean her sword is in it?

It works if she was in a photoshoot where the setting is fabricated, but because I'm imagining her on the actual battlefield, the illogicalness breaks the illusion. I wish she was posed like ITEM #604444 to go along with the battlefield setting in my head. I really like her default outfit over her third ascension.

yuanssan9 hours ago#101510227Why do you like Licorne’s version over the alter one? Or better asked, what did Alter lack in? I’m considering to buy this one but I’m still on the fence TT

As I said before, the face isn’t as good as in promo shots, mine had a couple of flaws, flag support and peg are a bad joke. The fact I could repair/modify it by myself doesn’t made it better. If I wanted a GarageKit, I‘d buy one. IMO it’s just an impudence what Alter delivered and I sold the figure the day I got her.

Although I usually prefer Jeanne with short hair, I’d choose Licorne‘s version over Alter‘s every time because mine arrived flawless, the paint job of the armor is as good as Alter‘s, and the stability of the figure is way better, you don’t have to afraid of breaking anything. Her face you may like or not, but at least it looks exactly like the prototype.
The base is a real eye catcher as well and the pose I also prefer.

Be aware that is only my opinion and as you see in the comments below, most people don’t agree with me, so consider my comment as an opposing opinion and choose the one you feel emotionally more attached to.

I actually much prefer the ALTER version. The armour and paintjob is better and I really like the cape. The main reason tho, is the face sculpt. We have all seen how JAlter looks like when she goes crazy, but Licorne's face sculpt is just off and by a big margin. ALTER's sculpt is far better and also does a really good job of capturing her smug expression.
As for the flag, I reinforced it myself with some super glue and some modelling clay.The head can be fixed by sawing off a bit of the head peg and wearing down the collar. Although, unless you're pating extremely close attention, the head doesn't even need to be 'fixed'.

At the end of the day, a poorly supported flag can be fixed, but a poorly sculpted face cannot.

not the one you quoted but i think alter is better. IF modifications are done not many like to do.

1. reinforce the flag PEG (hard and need complicated hook pins to not tear out of the soft material

2. the flag support need a little soft buffer ontop or it scratches the flag + a thin brass rod/wire which is bend to a hook so the support can actually hold the flag... (easy and reversible)

3. cut 2mm off the head peg and dremel the collar out so you can lower the head by 2mm
basicly makeing the retail the same as the prototype head

i loved to do this... to get the prototype 1:1 but i see for many thats a dealbreaker

cant share picrures atm since she is in a box for moveing
