Finally unboxed her after 1 1/2 years in storage.

Figma Saber is certainly three steps forward compared to Revoltech Saber.

The details done on this scale is certainly impressive, in particular the intricate pattern on the scabbard.

The articulations are much smoother and the figure seems pretty stable without a stand. In contrast, Revoltech Saber’s joints seems to degrade over time and stability issues appear straight out of the box. We’ll see if Figma Saber could stand up to the test of time in case I re-examine it in the future.

I could go on and on about how much the paintjob and sculpting is superior to Revoltech Saber, but really, there’s not too much to report of. Even though it’s a solid figure and Saber was my first waifu :3, it’s yet another Saber out of the many incarnations of Saber. So yeah, I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.

How the hell did Kiritsugu shove delicious Avalon down Shirou’s throat is beyond my imagination.

Saber and two phallic stabby things: not something to be messed with.

MISC. NOTES

Based on the experiences learned in the previous figure shoot, the sweet ISO spot for photographing figures of this scale is ISO-400. There’s the usual editing with Irfanview to touch up the picture, though personally, I think I oversaturate and/or overbrighten the colours in some pictures.

In other figure related news, I got Figma Saber (Casual Ver.) and Figma Emiya Shirou (Casual Ver.) around early January from The Figure Mall as well as Figma Canaan. Might start photographing Canaan around Chinese New Year since I won’t have anything to do during the CNY holiday break.
