Saber ～約束された勝利の剣～ Triumphant Excalibur
Posted by meronpan on September 20, 2010
Saber! How many Fate/stay night figures can I acquire before I play the game? … … ^^:;;;
Maids and Lily are fine and all but for a sword wielding babe, it’s about time we have a nice action pose.
When it comes to cast off or extra parts or whatever, this is how I like things. Nice and simple. Two swords to choose from and they both fit easily into her hands. ^_^
Went for the no background just to try and spark some creativity for today’s shoot ^^;
Nice metal peg for support ^^
Only problem with her pose is that her arm blocks most of her mouth.
Base is pretty nice. Are manufacturers finally leaning away from the plain bases? Or maybe it’s just the ones i order ^^;
Excalibur has a nice solid feel, though I’m still waiting for a nice chrome finish someday :P
Armor is likewise solid. No crazy gift armor but a faithful representation of the original art ^^
Now unfortunately that… what do you call it… gah, words fail me. The front flap of her outfit… has some sort of weird problems…
It almost looks like a piece of plastic is covering it and there are air bubbles trapped. As far as I could tell there wasn’t any film on it thou… ;_;
Good ‘ol gauntlets.
And saber being saber… this is as close as you’re gonna get for pantsu
Something about her head, ribbon… outfit details… feels like they could’ve been a little finer. But it’s still not bad as is.
The charged up version… errr… “Invisible Air”? is made of clear plastic but unfortunately that means without some fancy lighting it looks pretty dull ^^;;
Luckily with some lights and post processing we can get it to look energized :P
In a bit more normal lighting:
Think I shoulda taken more full body shots to show off the pose…
Full shot of invisible air
mmmm really shoulda rotated lily so they were both facing the camera -_-;;
And alas the group shot didn’t turn out at all as I would’ve liked. White balance is on the warm side, but when I correct it the pic looks a bit too flat… Ah well. I’m sure I’ll order another fate/stay night figure someday and take more pics then. Isn’t that rin coming out soon? :P
I think this version is my new favorite for armored saber… hard choice if i had to pick between her and alter maid ^^;
A great saber in a solid 1/7 scale. Definitely recommended.
