A lottery prize figure from Banpresto for TYPE-MOON’s 10th Anniversary event. Non-canon but still pretty beautiful-looking outfit design, but with some QC issues.
This is just the first 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 figures as I re-unboxed them. Most of these figures are second hand, B/B grade, so keep that in mind when going through the photos.

First, the white stockings and panties…
Supposedly that weird-shaped support stand is sculpted to hold the bows… maybe my bow was a bit disfigured but it definitely didn’t feel like it fit at all. I just removed the stand since the figure has decent enough balance that a stand isn’t needed.
Oh boy, Banpresto totally screwed up with the face… (or maybe I’m just used to GSC’s Saber faces). Either way, the face/hair/ponytail combo doesn’t match any of the existing Sabers (Blue/Zero, Lily, Red/Nero/Bride, Alter) so I guess Banpresto could have done whatever they wanted…
A quick flash…
Excalibur Proto in activation 1 form (Invisible Air removed). Note that Excalibur Proto is the weapon wielded by the original, male Saber in Fate/Prototypes (i.e. Nasu’s original Saber before Takeuchi said “Stfu Nasu, we are turning Fate into an eroge” and he genderswapped King Arthur)
Here’s some fanservice featuring Saber expertly handling the pole
