"Generic" Saber Figure comes as a Pack-in with PSP Game

Fate/Extra! indeed.


 
Go ahead, decry me with taunts of "Slowpoke.jpg" but I just found out that March's upcoming Fate/Extra! will come with a packed in exclusive Saber figure. At least, I think its Saber. I mean, that's what they called it but didn't we decide it wasn't her, but some "generic" version of the character?
 
Well, either way, for a bonus figure its pretty awesome. Danny Choo commented on how the actual product will come with different faces (designed by Wada Aruko and Takeuchi Takashi) That said, Takashi worked on Fate/Stay Night, but I have no idea who Wada Aruko is.
 
One thing I find giggly about the figure: It still includes the mostly translucent dress flourish we saw in the original renderings.

I might buy this game/figure combo! :D Mainly for the figma which I think looks pretty damn good.
HeeroYuyon Nov. 15, 2009 at 12:02 a.m.
The figma looks good, but it just doesn't feel like Saber to me. Topping off the fact that I already have the full armor Saber figma, I'll probably just save the money and buy the regular version of the game (since inevitably I will).

some people did call her modred just because he got a red costume and same face with saber, which is strange we never see modred face, we do know she is a girl and of saber class, we do know she has red scheme, what confused me is why they have the conclusion while modred is not a hero, never have a good intention or feeling and should not have been in holy grail wars, and she wears a helmet

Well and Mordred mentioned as a MAN. Most importqant thing...though he might be a she like Arthuria was in nasuverse.
Another thing which bothers me that people always want to give larger bewbs for Saber. Why? In the VN she was a semi-loli(in body proportions 14 years old). It is one of the symbols of her purity as being always maiden, but instead in both the anime and in many other sources they tend to give her a "plastic surgery".
 
They hardly try to do something with Rin, Sakura,Rider and co. to make them more appealing, but for the legendary knight must have some "improvements"...

wait until UBW come, i bet rin will get some "improvement"
 
sakura needs improvement?
 
 
and i am quite sure we have seen modred somewhere as a guy who arturia stabbed
willyverebon Nov. 15, 2009 at 5:30 a.m.
Not only in dimensional values one can get improvements:p
Hairstyle, clothes etc...
But if we're speaking about those kind of "improvements"...in few fanarts Sakura gets it.
cfatalison Nov. 15, 2009 at 5:41 a.m.
not fan arts, and also the anime did focus on saber's route
Void_Wizardon Nov. 15, 2009 at 6:39 a.m.
Sakura does not needed a larger bust size she has a large one already. ;) Anyone who has played the pc visual novel would know.
cfatalison Nov. 15, 2009 at 6:47 a.m.
that's what i am saying, she has the largest bust in fate, rivaled only by rider
willyverebon Nov. 15, 2009 at 6:49 a.m.
Well, there are extreme fetishist who still views them as  "not enough". I bet they never had a chance to actually see on in RL...
I agree that Sakura has good enough ones already. Though I might be damned but it isn't my focus of sight most of the time when I see her.:)
@cfatalis: And it how justifies Saber's "plastic surgery"? The original isn't appealing enough?...Japanese and fanservice...
cfatalison Nov. 15, 2009 at 6:54 a.m.
@willyvereb: japanese and fanservice, is like almost the same thing, so yeah....., not on the Nasu-fans demographic however
 
and most fans seem to not like the borderline of having a bust compared to pettanko( so in their mind there's only ,BBS ---> middle grade---->pettanko), so most of the time they pumped it into at least Rin size
willyverebon Nov. 15, 2009 at 11:27 a.m.
@cfatalis: You know Akiha is just fine without any breast-therapy...though she's always trageted with negative breast jokes.
 
Also R.Shiki is alright too without showing off any(though she's at Rin's size).
 
In short I can't understand how can be Saber more with that "upgrade".
Or we should call it power-up to show her relative fighting ability compared to Arcueid?...though with that logic we would see something "amusing" when Arcueid goes 100% power.:p
cfatalison Nov. 15, 2009 at 11:35 a.m.
@willyvereb: the only time arc get to 100% is on a certified fan game, and off screen, in the game he still get his ass kicked by the OC, and in off screen he got kicked by her big sis, go figure?
 
akiha is made to be the target of size joke, fans cannot get over that(fate got ilya, then again if her mother is anything to go by.......), and she had the little sister thing going , it's like law
r shiki is the MC so she get benefits from that of not being a target (rin size is commonly said to be good enough)
 
if we say it is a powerup, that's half true in fate......., look at sakura compare with rin
 
avoided in
compare rider and saber
compare saber and caster
willyverebon Nov. 15, 2009 at 11:43 a.m.
@cfatalis:
Perhaps...the PoB(Power of Breasts) rule doesn't apply there. But I used it just as a joke.
And Saber is somehow a MC as well as Rin and sakura. And poor Arthuria still undergone a breast operation...hile it didn't happen with any other heroine. Actually Hisui,Kohaku,Akiha,Rin, Shiki can get one...but it's meaningless as well as for her.
Honestly...other than in H-scenes where were we bothered with Saber being close to a petanko size? And as we all know H-scenes were one of the weakest parts of the game.
cfatalison Nov. 15, 2009 at 11:53 a.m.
@willyvereb: depends on what you call the weakest, it is most of the time, Deus sex machina
 
PoB do apply in some parts, just not in servant class, in male it's how many "bling bling" do you have
 proof
gilgamesh is one of the best servant, he got way too many" bling bling "
lancer get easily crapped, he only got one" bling bling" (albeit that bling bling says die all the time)
archer can make his own "bling bling", he is shown fighting a superior servant twice and killing it 6 time, had the berserker not have that one-up phantasm, he would have win
lancelot can make anything into "bling bling", see how good is he fighting gilgamesh, with things he never seen before
 
PoB proof
sakura and rin, who had the most prana?
rider and caster, who is able to fight better?
 
well arturia did complained about how her body is not "womanly"
willyverebon Nov. 15, 2009 at 11:58 a.m.
@cfatalis: Exactly! Why they must take out that part of her? It's an important thing to her character.
Did they do this because of the general rule of anime? 
Every foreigner girl in anime  having blonde hair and big breasts(except lolis).
But still it's bothersome.
With that in mind they can make Sakura figures and models in dinner dress...
cfatalison Nov. 15, 2009 at 12:21 p.m.
@willyvereb: not really general, but it did say, the cat harem must have, one foreign, and one big breasted characther. there's nothing saying that they should be both at the same time
 
you mean like the "princess sakura" in fate tiger coll?
willyverebon Nov. 15, 2009 at 12:25 p.m.
@cfatalis:
A bit...or the one she wears in HA...especially the blue one;)
Perhaps Sakura usually is too reserved and shy to do that...but:
 Sometimes even Sakura can be bold:)
 Sometimes even Sakura can be bold:)
 
Or something like that...prana-nacked-apron xD
cfatalison Nov. 15, 2009 at 12:30 p.m.
@willyvereb:

i believe i have that one
so how many magical girl did we have in nasu-verse anyway/
kaliedo ruby
prism ilya
that form of luvia and her apprentice (saphire something)
phantas-moon
magical cherry(more like grape , if going by color theme)
kohaku
 
 this one?
 this one?
