Saber Armor Ver. Figma





Another figma to my collection today. I started watching Fate/Stay Night so I could justify getting her. I've always had a thing for medieval armor and weapons, and Saber is no exception. I didn't think I'd like the anime at first because from the plot synopsis I just didn't get too interested but I'd been curious about her for quite a while so I had to give it a shot. It didn't take me long to find her my favorite character in the series, and she is indeed a great figma. Not sure if I'll bother getting Rin Tohsaka, we'll see. Yes, I know, lots of figmas almost back-to-back. I'm bad. Yay for drafts, my internet has been acting up every time I try to finish this post.





Saber impressed me. I figured I'd have at the least the usual loose hair problem I've had with many of my figmas. Nope, not here. Her hands don't give me any problem changing them, her joints aren't too tight or too loose, and her hair fits on snuggly. Everything stays right where I want it without any difficulties. She's not hard to pose, not too heavy despite the bulky appearance, and her swords are highly detailed. I have nothing negative to say about her at all.




I got so into Saber that I also decided to order the Saber Alter Revoltech. It will be my first Revoltech figure. Originally I had planned as Yoko Ritona being my first but I couldn't pass up the dark version of Saber once I saw her. That should be here within a week or so. So, I can compare Revoltech to Figma soon, and have two versions of Saber. Now, I just have to avoid trying to get that expensive Saber Lily that comes with the game that's coming out... Must... avoid... thinking about it.

Wow, Saiba looks pretty intense in these pics. Better than mine I'd say.

WOOT WOOT! Figma ROCKS!!!

Revoltech doesn't stand a chance against Figma IMO(Saber at least). As much as I love that new Yoko Revoltech I know that I'll still be disappointed. Max Factory set the bar pretty darn high with Saber and I'm hesitating to get anymore Revoltech. But then I'll probably wait for the Nendoroid Yoko unless they made a Figma Yoko :O

oh yeah I got a little no-text comic of Saber pwning other figures of mine. I even a picture of Saber putting my revoltech in an armbar. (in my elusive blog) The hardest part of doing that picture was keeping the revoltech limbs attached. Thats another thing about saber, the limbs stay attached! That shouldn't even be a problem but it is with my revoltech at least.

I love my Figma saber so much I even thought of getting the Saber lily! xD but as you said .. must resist ... must not give in .... That Saber Lily looks absolutely stunning huh? but jeez a hundred bucks(COZ U GOTA GET THE GAME TOO >.<) .. We just got to wish we can get it cheaper off Ebay or something xD

i hate how you can't edit posts after you post them >.> so forgive me ..

Dude that saber toy ROCKS!!! Friggen looks amazing in your pictures bro.

Just curious what camera do you use to make such nice photos?

Justin said...

Man, this is making me wanna remove my figma Saber and play with it as well!

Cool, the only complaint I may have about Saber is that her angry face looks like she has constipation or something. I'm going to buy myself a Fate/Unlimited Codes for Saber Lily, so maybe I'll get her normal version to complement her.

No, no, no. You MUST think about it. You know you want it... Yes you do... Yes you do...

The swords look sweet. :D

plasmatdx - you've been added ^^

bzou - it's nothing special, I just work harder to get the pictures to turn out decent. the camera itself is begging for a replacement: Vivitar Vivicam 5385... I spent a fair amount of time staring at $600 camera on my birthday.

orange - we'll see how crazy I go spending, must recover from my current buying sprees... it really is tempting.

I have no idea what to post for my blog today, unless we get our other pre-orders in the mail today *most likely not happening:P*
I can't wait for my birthday, can't wait for my Yoko mousepad, btw, status on that order? You haven't mentioned the status of our pre-orders.:D
