Triggerheart Exelica Alter Figure

The Triggerheart aesthetic has always appealed to me, partly because it embodies so much of what I see as quintessentially Japanese design - the series fuses technology with cuteness using a wonderfully streamlined style, and that's partly what makes this figure so awesome.

The attention to detail is also stunning. The crisp white panels are accented by metallic blue highlights, which add plenty of depth to the figure. Further highlights are added by translucent pink features at the ends of the more delicate extensions, and some light purple airbrushing finishes the package.

Exelica herself sits loosely on what can best be described as a bicycle seat atop a stylised arm, which is a refreshing change from the usual peg assembly we've come to expect, and leaves her perfectly formed with no distracting holes.

When the figure arrives, in a humungous box I might add, Exelica is a full figure in her own right. All the additional armour is snapped into place around her limbs, and once perched atop her stand, she's joined by two further freestanding parts, which are her lance weapon and strange spheroid object. Altogether the figure takes up a lot of space, but it looks magificent when completed.

Whether or not this figure is worth over £100 is down to your personal tastes, but in terms of build quality, it's really second to none. There are cheaper Triggerheart figures in the wild, including an adorable chibi version, but if you want the Rolls Royce, then Alter's Exelica is the one to find. Just be warned, she'll need a lot of space to herself once assembled!

Big, bold and beautifully crafted, this is a fine figure and a worthy addition to your shelf.
