Wanted: 1/60 Arbalest ARX-7 by Alter


Recommended Posts

The Alter Arbalest was apparently a super-limited 1/60 scale figure, as it seems to be listed on sites like HLJ and AmiAmi for purely historical significance. The prices I've seen for it range from $150 US to around $400 US, depending where you come across it, but it's stock status is always "Discontinued". Aside from the slightly larger size and the opening cockpit feature, it has identical range of motion and gimmicks as the Robot Tamashii (Spirits) ARX-7 made by Bandai. The RT Full Metal Panic figures are getting a whole lot of love from Bandai lately, offering a boatload of web exclusive paint schemes and weapon sets. I just snagged the Emergency Booster set off of eBay for $50, and I was able to preorder the upcoming Arbalest in M9 color scheme/weapon set with the help of Tokyohunter. While Alter's version gives you an Arm Slave big enough to go toe-to-toe with your Yammies, the RT versions have excellent sculpting and are just downright fun to play around with.

I got one tongue.gif, only briefly dispalyed, like new! Make me an offer I cannot refuse!

Lucky you! I didn't know such figure until today when I checked Toysdaily.

I am from HK too. I like the figure, but not enough to pay for "fried price". : - )

Enjoy yours.

Thanks for the info Cyclone! I guess I missed this great figure... looks very much like GFFMC quality. I was debating if I should get the one from Bandai, but I always like something bigger, especially it has a nice detail cockpit. Anything with a nice cockpit will get me.

Thanks again!
