Thanks to GALABLUE for your constant support since I’ve started this process! She made a very good observation after my lasted review launched yesterday (BLOG #44079).

If I have two of the most popular Angela Balzac figures, why didn’t I compare the two at the end of my article?

It was a good question, and I didn’t have a good answer. So, I spent a few minutes today doing some extra shooting, got some pretty cool shots of these two figures, and wanted to share them with you all.

Comparison Addendum

Rakuen Tsuihou: Expelled From Paradise - Angela Balzac - 1/8 (Alphamax) -- ITEM #279274

Vs.

Rakuen Tsuihou: Expelled From Paradise - Angela Balzac - 1/7 (Phat Company) -- ITEM #287724

What’s interesting about these two figures (of the same character, yet from two separate manufacturers) is their relative size to each other. The figure in mid-stride (left) is a 1/8 scale model, while the kneeling figure (right) is actually a 1/7 scale model, and there really isn’t a great deal of difference between their respective body parts.

For the most part, coloration is consistent between the two, though if you notice the hair color, the striding figure is much more yellow/orangish than the muted tones of the kneeling figure.

Here are a couple of similar shots with switched focal points …

And because she has such a cute derriere, I had to do a side-by-side comparison (again with two shots of alternating points of focus) …

And I’ll close with a couple of shots that are particularly interesting to me as they focus on the bodysuit harness gear (on her back) from different focal points and angles.

HappyakrzIl y a 8 mois#71048835Thanks for the kind words!
If I had to pick only one of them today, it would definitely be the standing figure (ITEM #279274). They both have excellent sculpting and painting, but this figure is the superior version (in my opinion) in a couple of different areas (overall body sculpt, paint finish, detail level in the sculpt).
I think that it also has a slight edge over the other figure on the shelf because the view-ability of figure is more open to a wider range of height -- the kneeling figure really requires being higher up on an upper shelf, and needs to look down on the viewer.
That's my two cents. :)

I appreciate your input! That's the one that I'm leaning towards as well since I can expect better quality from Alphamax compared to Phat (plus the Alphamax version has better shaped behind haha). The hunt for this figure begins! Hopefully, sometime in the future, I can also get the Phat version.

Infra90Il y a 8 mois#71047830Thank you for your individual reviews as well as the comparison pics! I want to buy an Angela figure, but I can only buy one for now and I'm stuck between these exact two. If you had to choose just one, which would you go for?

I like the Alphamax version more. The phat version looks a bit drab looking when compared to Alphamax especially when comparing the hair — Alphamax version for the hair looks "neater" (best way as I can describe it) and much better colored.

aw yeah! glad you put these two next to each other. i am always interested in same character from different manus.

i still think the alphamax version is the better one Voir le spoilerCacher le spoilerto be honest, i like a lot about her but seeing them side by side, one of the biggest selling point is that i like the breasts/figure on the alphamax one better. they just seem more real if that makes sense?, but i think i like the face from phat better.
