Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier : Saber Review

Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier!

goodsmile company Mikatan's Blog English Version

Just 2 days until preorders start!

Even Panda is fascinated by it’s beauty! Today is the start of the much awaited prototype review! I absolutely love taking photos of figures, and the more amazing the figure the more I love to take photos!

001

Let’s start with the conclusion:
What an incredible figure!!

If you’re reading this blog you must have some interest in figures and maybe even be a collector yourself, and if you are either of those then this figure will definitely pull on your heartstrings!

As a side note, I don’t know anything at all about bikes… (to the point that I can’t even tell you where the engine is on a bike :P)

But even if I know nothing about bikes, I can still tell you the sculpting is absolutely incredible!


Do you all love figures? I love figures! No matter what that figure might feature, I still love to look at them! I hope I can convey just how lovely this figure really is through the images and text I’ve written up today…

008

Let’s start with a horizontal shot!

  /   (=・=)  (=・=)\    I tried to fit the whole figure in the picture…
  |       (__人__)    |    But now Saber-san looks tiny!”
   \     ` ⌒´   /

The bike is really long when you look from this angle!

The figure it so long it was quite a task to photograph – the web team have been having quite a tough time!! Yesterday during the live broadcast, Oda-P said the bike measured an impressive 290mm. That’s about the size of an A4 sheet of paper!! Just grab an A4 page and then you’ll get a good feeling for the size of the bike!

009

Let’s compare her with another figure!

Here we have her displayed with Nendoroid Movable Saber. You can really see the size difference now! It might be a 1/8th scale figure, but it certainly takes up an impressive amount of space!

002

A shot from a more backward angle!

That pose of Saber looking behind her is both awesome and sexy!

Saber is wearing a rather tight suit, but it has a very tight fit to still leave her with a strong sense of femininity! (According to Kawapon!)

But even with a tight fit, there are still creases all over the figure giving an incredibly realistic effect! Just look at the legs of the pants, or even the jacket pockets!

004

This is how it looks from the back!

This was a very popular angle during last night’s live broadcast! The contrast of the black clothes on Saber and the silver bike really stand out from this angle. Plus you can also get a nice view of the base – a road filled with debris!

Apparently the positioning of the debris even went through some real experiments to see how exactly the bike would displace them – all done just for the figure’s base!

003

The reverse side looks like this!

Just look at the lovely body!!

Kawapon has really got the slenderness and roundness of a girl’s body down perfectly! 😛 This particular version of Saber doesn’t expose much skin, and yet it’s still so… sexy…! Don’t you agree!?

005

No matter what angle you look from, the figure always looks great!

If you’re a figure collector, I’m sure you’ve also experienced the feeling of getting a figure displayed at the perfect angle. But I just can’t do it with this version of Saber! I just can’t find the perfect angle as she looks great from any angle! I think that’s due to a combination of the minute details on the base and bike, as well as the unique posing of Saber – not to even mention just how well sculpted she is herself. This is really one figure that is so very carefully created, it’s hard to find any flaws! I’m certain that anyone who grabs her up will enjoy her for years and years to come!

025

Today we’ll be focusing on Saber!!

The bike is great, but Saber is just as great!! Hence today’s review is more focused around Saber herself!

Isn’t she just beautiful!?  (*゚∀゚)=3
That determined expression across her face as the wind blows over her blowing her hair all around…. it’s simply perfect!

020

I love the area between her breast and waist!!

Let’s focus on the breast area first!!
She has three layers of clothes – a blouse, best and jacket!

Just seeing that gives her such a realistic appearance. It’s like she is right there with you! Her lovely slender waist is also another one of the highlights of the figure!

022

Let’s zoom in a little closer!!

Just like the suit the blouse also has a lovely tight fit! Even if she doesn’t boast the biggest of assets, you can still make out the shape though the tight clothes…

019

And what a lovely bottom!

   :/  ..:<●>::<●> \:   publishers are probably against…
   :|     (__人__)  |:      but this just has to be said too!”
   :\     ` ⌒´   _/:   
   : ノ           \ :

It looks so very soft and touchable!!
There really isn’t anything else you can say about such a lovely bottom! And all this is coming from a big Fate fan!

024

Everyone loves thighs!

I don’t think I need to say anything more about this image.

Don’t think! Just enjoy!!

Just imagine the soft skin and fight back the urge to want to touch it!! 😛

023

But the best things are not only the sexy parts of her!

Just look how the jacket is fluttering up!!

It really looks as if the jacket is caught in the wind! It’s so hard to believe that this was sculpted by human hands! Sculptors really are incredible at what they do! It’s quite common for people to focus on the bike at first, but when you get down to looking at Saber herself, you realize just how much work went into this figure!

026

Excalibur and her bracelet!

The photo is zoomed in quite a lot, but even the tiny bracelet features gradient painting!! I can’t believe how much detail is put into it! Excalibur is also of outstanding quality – you can’t have a Saber figure without Excalibur! 😛

006

Today’s review will continue tomorrow!

Tomorrow we will be focusing on the bike!

The bike is just as filled with wonderful highlights as Saber herself, so look forward to the second section! I have to say that I’m very proud of the picture above, I think it came out so well. ^^

Let me end with a quick notice!

On the day Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier goes on sale (12/22) we will be doing a live broadcast from the Good Smile x Karaoke Tetsujin Cafe from 22:00!
