Saber Extra EX Figure (SEGA)

Today we have the proud Saber Extra (aka. Saber Nero, aka Saber Red) from Fate/EXTRA. I usually don’t like collecting prize figures, but I try to collect at least one figure of each kind of Saber and the alternatives weren’t all too appealing (not a fan of Satoshi’s faces in Gift’s figure and Clayz’s 1/6 figure is way too big). I’m probably going to sell this once I find a Saber Bride figure that I like (have SEGA’s PM Figure preordered but it’s also a prize figure, and Alphamax’s looks tempting but a bit too boobaliscious…) Anyway, as Saber Nero …

Caster Extra 1/8 (Phat Company)

It’s been a while since I took a break with figure collecting (mainly because my figure photography desk got invaded by my new desktop and miko Saber Lily) but I’m back with slowly chipping away at my To-Review list of TYPE-MOON figures. Tonight, we have Caster Extra, the playful servant from the Fate universe’s spinoff PSP game, Fate/EXTRA. I haven’t played the game yet but it has official TYPE-MOON endorsement, so despite the char designs/art style not being Takeuchi’s (Fate/EXTRA character designs are by Wada Rco), I’ll acknowledge it as part of an alternate Nasuverse. Anyway, to the figure! How …

Caren Ortensia 1/8 (Alter)

The forgotten, real fourth TYPE-MOON heroine. Caren is the main heroine of Fate/hollow ataraxia, but no one remembers because 1) Fate/hollow ataraxia wasn’t as popular as Fate/stay night as a VN, and 2) Caren was a pretty bland character ;( TYPE-MOON considers their 4 heroines to be Ryougi Shiki (Kara no Kyoukai), Arcueid (Tsukihime), Saber (Fate/stay night), and Aoko (Mahou Tsukai no Yoru) in that chronological order, but they forget the other two main heroines that came before Mahouyo (i.e. Caren of Fate/hollow ataraxia and Sion of Melty Blood, both of which came before Mahouyo). Even though she was meant …

Matou Sakura ~Battlesuit Ver~ 1/8 (Alter)

Been spending most of my free time playing Blade & Soul lately as well as setting up my new desktop, but the queues are forever, so here’s another TYPE-MOON figure review! Today is the gentle kohai/perfect housewife, Matou Sakura, in her battle outfit How the hell did I end up so low on the popularity ranking polls? Saber!?!?!? This is just the one 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 …

Saber Alter ~Dress Ver~ 1/8 (Alter)

This Saber Alter figure was one of the Fate figures I bought during my first trip to Japan. Actually also just recently sold it to a friend since I found it not really fitting in with the rest of my collection (much prefer Solid Theater’s Saber Alter, which I previously reviewed). Took some pics of it before selling though so might as well do a quick review anyway. My Black Servant Can’t Be This Cute This is just the one of a long series of post-unboxing, backlogged TYPE-MOON figure reviews. After moving to my new place, I set up a …

Saber Alter 1/8 (Solid Theater) + Dark Sakura 1/8 (Gift)

Although manufactured by two different companies, both figures were sculpted by Toda Satoshi and meant to be displayed together. Hence, I’ve combined both reviews into one with them displayed together at the end.

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