Saber is in a position of fight, going to execute one of her attacks. The pose is very dynamic, showing well the movement of clothes, hair.
The only "snag" would be that the arm too much walks past its mouth, hiding it partially.
Saber measures ~27 cm.

The paint is really impressive.
The effect of the metal is very well transcribed and the shadows of clothes are really beautiful. There are many nuances.
An exemplary paint.

The base is oval, representing one sole paved with signs of fight (hoarse paving stones, visible ground).
Every paving stone is individualized well, the paint is very well made.
The name of the work is written " Fate stay night " is written in golden and relief on below on the right.


Enjoyment

I waited for this figurine with a lot of impatience (I love enormously this character). Seeing the beauty of Saber - distant Avalon (that I don't have, regrettably), I waited on behalf of company a lot and I admit that I am not disappointed.
Saber is really faithful to her chara-design of origin and the figurine is really well made.
For those who have Saber-distant avalon, the duet should be really beautiful!

jintooNice pics: they show the nice details of the figure. I would decrease a bit the mark for "posing" because of the left arm that hides the mouth.
I think there will be a rerelease of Distant Avalon... you should be patient.


From my understanding there's a variance in the head position on this figure so some do not have their mouths obstructed by her arm while others do. Mine's less covered that this reviewed saber but more covered than some of the other sabers I've seen.

It displays well at or slightly below eye level and is not suitable for displaying above eye level regardless of head position.

No really, she seems to be stable.
Ig it was not sure, I don't think Good smile company makes this pose.
The leg is hard (in ABS probably), so I don't think it will comply.

Thank you very much ! ^o^
(I have taken just one pics of the box because I had forgetten to take it when I took the other pics ^^" (I didn't have my camera on me) That's why the quality is less good)).
I'll remember your advice for the next time :D

Great Review Zaffira =D
I really like the figure and also the effect parts for the excalibur. You did a awesome review but i recommend you to take a few more pics of the box and the effect parts. BTW that background is really great O__O

You are lucky to have the both ~~
Seen the price of the Distant Avalon, I don't think to take her for the moment, for lack of money. On the other hand I'll take the Saber Alter! She'ill go as well with the Triumphant Excalibur ! After I'll see if I have enough money to try to find Saber lily et buy her ^^

The duet is beautiful. I hope you can find a Distant Avalon version for your Triumphant Excaliber version soon! I must admit though you have to have risers for them both to fit in a Detolf. :P
