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 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.

The box. Same style as the Saber Alter figure I reviewed earlier.

Two alternate faces and a removable skirt

Boring pink base ;(

Connects to the feet via simple pegs

Plain pantsu


Plain pink skirt. Wasn’t as impressively painted as the Saber Alter

“Battlesuit” top, featuring her normal home outfit with a left arm from Dark Sakura

A random ribbon(?) that comes out from the Dark Sakura left arm

It connects via a small losely-fitting slot. For my figure, the ribbon keeps falling out but my friends stays snugly in, so your mileage may vary

The two heads. I have to say, even angry Sakura doesn’t look all that angry… (Dark Sakura, on the other hand, is at a completely different level)

All together!


Oh, nothing, just wanted to say Sempai ^_^

With her box

The battlesuit outfit doesn’t actually exist in the Fate/hollow ataraxia visual novel, but apparently it was drawn in some other official artwork, such as for this phone card

Here’s an actual CG from Fate/hollow ataraxia of Sakura being gentle

Here’s another of Sakura being cute and clueless

Of course, you can’t show a CG of Sakura eating something without following up with Sakurafish

Personally, I prefer the Suzuka version
