Amazing Saber Figure is Amazing

She is not striking a cute pose this time around.



If you are tired of Saber figures being in cute, ‘I wanna be your girlfriend’ poses, and not ‘I’m the mother f#$@ King of England’ poses, then look no further than Saber Triumphant Excalibur. This figures is made by Good Smile and will be released in July for the low price of 9,800 yen (yikes!). With that large price tag comes two different swords, one being the normal Excalibur, and the other being an ‘Invisible Air’ Excalibur, which makes use of clear plastic. The detail is breathtaking with this figure, so much so that I wouldn’t feel bad bringing this over to a third-world country and get married to it.

That is awesome.  To bad it's so damn expensive.

I think I'll just stick with my this:  
    
 
Yeah...The photo is pretty bad though, but it's the only one I've taken of it.

Nice but I suspect the figure will bend in the future with that pose... So I'll just stick with my gorgeous Saber Lily.

@Void_Wizard: Unfortunately that's probably true. Lately they've gotten better about that (figure producers) by using more rigid PVC composites that will give a little when soaked in warm water, but still...
 
Full Armor Saber is definitely my preferred style; as much as Saber lily seems beautiful and the more stylish fencing type, Full Armor Saber's the only one I can picture tanking a bunch of monsters at once, blasting through concrete walls, and generally screaming "WHO WANTS SOME!?"
 
Ultimately I just wish they'd hurry up and give us our Shiki and Rider figmas though...

WTF?! XD
 
Well, I welcome you here to Brazil. =D

@AleM: you can be in my wedding then.

@GodLen: Wasn't that "third world country" a U.S. held territory?
 
@RockmanBionics:
Nice figure! My sympathy goes out to your photographing issues. Entire websites are dedicated to how to photograph your figures and such, but that just seems like too much work when I try it.

But yeah, this figure is just... wow. I seriously considered allocating the funds, but then I read what @Void_Wizard said, and unfortunately, it makes sense.

@John_Martone: don't kid yourself, the whole world is a u.s. held territory.
