In between unboxing and putting together Saber Lily (see link above), I took some time to take nice, clean pictures of her in her various outfit. For some of the pictures, I tried to copy various poses from the pamphlet or PVC figures of Saber Lily. For others, OhnoRaptors help out. Here they are, enjoy!
My attempt at posing Lily like Alphamax’s 1/7 Saber Lily figure.
Unfortunately the DDII body is nowhere near flexible enough, as you can tell from her awkwardly positioned legs, and Caliburn turned out to be way too long (or maybe in the figure it’s way too short?). I’ll probably be buying Lily a new DDIII body once it becomes available via Volks USA.
Posed based on Banpresto’s Saber Lily SQ prize figure.
Doesn’t actually look that good zoomed out (I’m not a fan of the original figure pose either) so I only kept this picture.
Posed based on GSC’s 1/7 Saber Lily ~Golden Caliburn~ figure.
This was actually a really hard pose to do because 1) Lily’s glove hands don’t actually have any grip (I had to use some white sticky tack which you can see if you zoom in), and 2) Lily’s DDII body’s arm joints are really loose but also inflexible so keeping her elbows bend and up light that required some weird joint twisting.
Really want to upgrade her to a DDIII body >_<

Pose from Alter’s 1/8 Saber Lily figure
Pose from GSC’s 1/7 Saber Lily ~Distant Avalon~ figure. My favourite Saber Lily figure and pose. Also the absolute hardest to do with this DD cause not only are the arms really heavy due to the armour pieces and thus hard to keep in position without dropping down, but her center of balance is really poor and her front chest plate keeps falling off every time I try to adjust her arms >_< No sticky tack needed this time though, and well worth the effort!

Way too cute @[email protected]
I hope you enjoyed these photos of Saber Lily. I’m really happy I got her and am definitely looking forward to more photo-shoots with her. Especially once my custom Arcueid V1 is done so I can recreate some epic Arcueid vs Saber fight scenes from T-MOON Complex (or, you know, just have them get along at Ahnenerbe, happily sipping tea). Either way, look forward to the next set of DD photos!
