1/7 PVC Figure (Good Smile Company)
See this post and more at Keripo's Corner

This time, it's the original Saber from Fate/stay night, releasing her Invisible Air and readying to strike you down with Excalibur.

Rawr, rawr, I'm Saber Blue, the original and most boring of all the Sabers!

This is just the first of a long series of post-unboxing, backlogged TYPE-MOON figure reviews. After moving to my new place, I set up a nice corner of the room for figure photography and took a bunch of review-style photo sets of figures as I re-unboxed them. Most of these figures are second hand, B/B grade, so keep that in mind when going through the photos.

Who needs a manual for figures? >_<

All the parts laid out

The base is just as nice and detailed as the Saber Lily Distant Avalon~ figure.

The two versions of the weapon

Saber, no base nor weapon

To connect Saber to the base, you stick a metal pole through her boots and base and make her levitate. Dangerously. Seriously GSC, you couldn't have done better? >_<

Like with Saber Lily ~Distant Avalon~, the tip of the sword handles come off so you can slide them through the hands

With her box

With my other two GSC Sabers, Saber Lily ~Distant Avalon~ and Saber ~Motored Cuirassier~. I'll probably get Saber Alter ~Vortigern~ one of these days to complete the collection...

Awesome! I just got mine too. I haven't had time to setup my photography stuff to take some good photos but thanks for the deconstruction of the figure when opening!

kilani6 years ago#1852313Those are both gorgeous, I think my favorite may be Gift's saber lily, but I'm not sure yet :>
Gift's Sabers are my favorite as well. The level of detail on them is astounding.

Keripo6 years ago#1852243Solid Theatre's Saber Alter is actually my very favourite Saber figure - the craftsmanship on it and Dark Sakura are absolutely gorgeous. They are both in queue for reviews and will probably get their photos uploaded sometime in the next few days. From a figure pose perspective though, I just feel that GSC's Saber Zero and Saber Lily have much more interesting poses that the overused "Eggscaliburrrr!!!" pose.

kilani6 years ago#1852236Actually, I know absolutely nothing about saber haha. I mostly meant, you didn't mean in terms of the figure, because I thought that for a second when I first read that line, and this is one of my favorite saber figures ^^
By the way, I love that you include links in your review, makes it very useful.

Keripo6 years ago#1852234Actually, I did mean it in terms of character/design - I'm probably one of the few TYPE-MOON fans who find Saber Blue really boring as a character.
My personal stack ranking is as follows:
Saber Lily > Saber Alter > Saber Bride > Saber Nero > Saber Blue > Saber Zero
In terms of figure craftsmanship, she's the least interesting of GSC's
Saber Zero > Saber Lily > Saber Alter > Saber Blue
Just my personal views, feel free to disagree ;P

kilani6 years ago#1852124I think Keripo just means in terms of design, compared to Fate/extra and Lily, etc.
Actually, I did mean it in terms of both character and figure design - I'm probably one of the few TYPE-MOON fans who find Saber Blue really boring as a character.

Saber Lily > Saber Alter > Saber Bride > Saber Nero > Saber Blue > Saber Zero
