Alter’s Saber maid! As previously mentioned, it took a lot of patience but I finally got her at a decent price, despite be sold out almost everywhere. (you can also check that post for a couple box pics if that happens to be your thing ^^;)
Unfortunately the most unimpressive part of the figure is probably her face… ^^; That said, I’m still not terribly familiar with the series, but I do know the art direction has a certain style to the characters’ faces… deviating from it didn’t help the otherwise stunning Saber by Gift… ^^;;
As always, please forgive the photo quality… I’m a little more self conscious than usual after reading posts by blowfish (flying pussyfoot) & super rats (happy soda). Someday I really want to make some progress with my shots but for now I gotta work with what I shot the other day. ^^;
Took these the same day as the tsuruya material. I tend to take a crap load of photos then slowly churn out posts throughout the week…
If you’ve seen this figure, you’re prolly well aware of the mop she comes with.
It’s a great mop I tell ya (unlike my pic… stupid focus ;_;)
Maid triple threat!
Ah, my photo nubness. In some of the tsuruya shots I noticed the window screen didn’t really show up at all. Here it’s plain as day…
An aperture setting woulda fixed that? Or one of the other handful of settings mebbe… I can never remember ^^; Well, anyhow, really love the detail in this figure.
Again, wish the focus came out better, but man, every single part of her outfit is so meticulously sculpted… 凄い！ These next shots have terrible lighting… 許して下さいね [please forgive me] m(_ _)m
Here’s… a shoe shot… ^^;
The stockings have a sheen to them, and detailed down the fine wrinkles at her knees.
I also love the low cut back!
Mop rests right under her hands…
And with everything else sculpted so fine, you’d expect nothing less from the pantsu…
Preview pic in the tsuruya post was based on this shot:
If you’ve been reading all my rambling, you may recall I got a free trading fig with my order… turned out to be another Saber!
She’s so tiny ^^; Eating an even tinier pocky ^_^
Zamber form Bardiche wins the height contest.
Konata and Miyuki combined are slightly taller than mini Saber…
As always, there’s a ton of coverage already out there if you haven’t gotten your fill:
foobarbaz (interesting part of this review – he was able to separate and cast off the skirt using a heat gun, but as the figure wasn’t intended for this, you get a nasty seam that’s visible and the procedure is by no means recommended)
Are you ready to be served?
