Saber Bride

Today’s main feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at the 1/7th scale…

Saber Bride!

From the popular game ‘Fate/EXTRA CCC’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of Saber Bride – Saber wearing the ‘Bridal Gown of Restraint’. She is posed with Aestus Estus in hand, ready to confront her enemies in battle while still showing off her curvaceous figure.

The sculpt is filled with all sorts of highlights such as the resolute facial expression, the skirt fluttering in the wind around her and the tight wedding outfit that shows off her beautiful curves. The intricate details on the outfits accessories and paintwork also all come together to create a figure overflowing with Saber’s beauty for fans to enjoy in their collection.

The empress adorned in her bridal gown!

The young female knight, dressed up in wedding attire as ‘Saber Bride’ has been transformed into an exquisite 1/7th scale figure! The contrast between the graceful white lace and the rough restrained appearance of the chains, locks, zips and belts makes for a kind of unbalanced look that has such a mystical charm about it!

Plus to top off the outfit we have this expression!!

Such is the beauty of a flower on the battlefield!

The unwavering will in her eyes together with the tightly closed mouth… the expression captures her confidence as a warrior but still also has an elegant, ladylike appeal to it that is such a pleasure to look at!

This is how she looks from the back!

Note Saber’s characteristic strand of hair that sticks out on the top of her head! Not to mention the large veil blowing out to the side! Another thing I love is that even though the outfit shows very little bare skin, you can still make out the shape of her legs and how soft they look thanks to the tight outfit…

It’s one of those figures that looks quite simple at first, but actually has an incredible amount to notice when you take a nice long look at it!

In her hands she holds Aestus Estus! 

Not only is the size impressive, but it also looks sharp and heavy too!

The fact that the sword extends well past her base makes you really get a good feeling for how large the sword is!

The pose overall has low centre of gravity as she grips the sword down quite low, which gives a rather still appearance to the figure, and yet…

Between the intricate lace outfit and beautiful veil, and the long dress with burnt edges and various little accessories… the ‘movement’ of the outfit adds  a much more dynamic sense to a pose that would normally be quite static!

As the wind blows across the outfit, Saber still stands firm and confident creating a mix of ‘moving’ and ‘still’ elements to the figure that really make the figure look incredible!

Plus the outfit also has very intricate creases all over! <○><○>

Look at her arms and shoulders!

You can even see crease lines on the palms of the gloves which goes to show just how tight the outfit is! As you might expect from an outfit named the ‘Bridal Gown of Restraint’. The tight feeling also continues to her bosom rather – and you can even see how soft they are by the way the arm rests at the one side of her bosom!!

Anyway, as this figure has the zip on the front done up there is not much bare skin showing… but the design of this outfit has a nice little secret on the back… which has been very faithfully preserved on the figure!!  (/ω\)

Oooooh…. (*Admiration)

I really don’t have any words for this, but I have the strangest feeling to want to give my appreciation! Thank you!! The sculptor behind this figure is none other than YUMA (SWANBOAT no SOUZA), the same sculptor behind the previously released Ceil Alencon! (σ・∀・)σ

Ciel Alencon


△ Released in February 2015

YUMA is amazing at differentiating between textures and also sculpting curvaceous bodies that I’m sure almost anyone loves to look at! But the smaller details are also outstanding – you really need to take a look at the smaller details to really appreciate the work that has gone into this figure! Just take a nice long look at these pictures…! ♡




△ No matter what angle I look from my eyes can’t stop wandering! (´□`。)

It’s one of those figures that really makes it seem that Saber is right there beside you! It really brings the Fate universe to your collection!

Plus the base is made in the image of the Fate/EXTRA material artbook cover! ★


△ The Fate/EXTRA CCC is also included in a fancy silver!

She is a must-have for any Saber fans, but on top of that she is a masterpiece of sculpting that any figure fans should be proud to add to their collection!

Be sure to add the beautiful and valiant bride to your collection!

Saber Bride!

She will be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♥︎

Be sure to check out the GSC site for more information tomorrow! There will also be a special site with even more details and more to enjoy! (`・ω・´)ゞ

figma Saber: Dress ver.

 Only 4 days until WonFes?!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Whenever I see sleet I always think it looks rather tasty… but I am truly hoping that the weekend will be sunny!!

Many of you may have seen that my blog says ‘Only 4 days left until WonFes!’, but when I was checking the GSC page earlier today I noticed a banner that clearly said… only three days left!?

 

Huh…?!

There are only three days left?! (((( ;°Д°))))

 

(I guess it depends on how you count it!)

If you don’t include today, I guess it is just three days to go! Either way, there is not much time left until we’re at the event!!  (´□`。)!

Today I’ll be taking a look at the forth and final WonFes figure!
Here is the line-up once more!!

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Bell Ver.

Nendoroid Battleship Re-Class

figma Snow Miku

figma Saber: Dress ver.

Which mean’s that today I’m obviously taking a look at…

figma Saber: Dress ver.!♪

“There is one last thing I need to say…”

From the popular anime Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works] comes a figma of Saber wearing her dress without armor!
· Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
· She comes with three expressions including a gallant face, a gentle smile and a bright smile filled with happiness.
· Optional parts include Excalibur and its scabbard Avalon, as well as the bamboo sword from the series.
· She also comes with alternate hair parts to display her hair blowing gently in the wind.
· An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

Oooooooooooooohhh!!! (●´ω`●)

A gentle smile with her lovely blue and white dress! A much more relaxed version of Saber compared to her normal armored appearance!

The elegant dress combined with her angelic smile…

It’s hard to think of her as a servant in Holy Grail War when she looks like this…

This version also features her with her hair untied up, and the hair comes in both a standard version as well as a more dynamic one – as if being blown by a gentle breeze! I’m sure that wind has a lovely fresh scent to it as well! <○><○>

Along with the gentle smile above,

She also comes with a more confident expression!

The bamboo sword that appeared in the anime series ‘Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works]’ is also included! I want to display her with a certain other character from the series as soon as possible!

Excalibur and its scabbard Avalon are also included!

Even if she isn’t wearing her armor, you can still place her in poses worthy of the ultimate servant! She looks so brave and confident!! (σ・∀・)σ

Let’s move onto her third and final expression… 

A smile filled with love!! ♡

Kaneko Nitohei from Max Factory said he wanted to bring out the cuter side of Saber with this version, which is why this line-up of expressions was decided on! (*´Д`)ノ

By the way, the expressions on this Saber can of course be used with the previously released figma Saber 2.0! This allows for even more Saber poses than ever before!  ♪

For example…! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

The shouting expression from Saber 2.0 can be used for a much more fierce battle scene while in dress form! Otherwise maybe you can have her embarrassed expression together with the dress form…! (●´ω`●)

Simply combine parts until you have found your favorite Saber! ♡

The shoulder are made with drawer joints just like Saber 2.0, allowing for more and easier poses! (*゚ー゚*)

Bring home your very own ultimate servant!

figma Saber: Dress ver.

She will be on sale at WonFes this weekend!

She will cost ¥5,000! A maximum of two per person will be available, and a total of 2000 will be on sale at the event! φ(.. )

Don’t get there too late or you might miss out!!

You can also preorder this item from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP starting from the 8th February at 16:00JST until the 16th February at 21:00JST!

Nendoroid Rider

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I haven’t ridden a bicycle in over three years! If I don’t ride on one soon I get the feeling I might forget how to… (/ω\)

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Rider!

From the popular anime series ‘Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works]’ comes a Nendoroid of the Rider-class servant from the 5th Holy Grail War, Rider! She comes with two expressions including both her standard expression as well as a shouting expression ideal for combat scenes.

Nendoroid Rider can be displayed with or without the visor that covers her eyes, and she also comes with her ‘Nameless Dagger’ which even includes a chain allowing for all sorts of poses from the series! Enjoy Rider in Nendoroid size for a cuter experience than ever before!

Ooooooooooooohhhhh!!! (*´Д`)=з

The Rider-class servant of the 5th Holy Grail war is joining the Nendoroids with her mostly black outfit, long purple hair and unique weapon with it’s chain all faithfully converted into chibi size! ♥︎ 

Just look at the detail on things like the creases in her outfit!! Not to mention the rather impressive bosom for a Nendoroid!!

Other things to note are the intricate details on her visor, the mark on her forehead and the collar accessory around her neck! The ‘Nameless Dagger’, which is more like stakes connected by a chain than an actual dagger, also looks amazing! 

Wait a second…. this chain…!! <○><○>

(・∀・) “The Nameless Dagger makes use of a real chain!”

We’re joined by the figure’s planner, Yassan!

(・∀・) “The chain is definitely the highlight of the weapon so we wanted to include it as best as possible… but we also wanted to ensure it didn’t make posing any more difficult!!

I’m sure it’ll be quite fun to make different poses based on where the chain is placed around her! ♪

 (・∀・) “Yep! For instance, you could even do something like this…!”

 (・∀・) “Recreate scenes fight out of the series! The chains really add an extra level of playability to the Nendoroid!”

By the way, the chains do obviously need to be held up by something! I’m simply holding them up with my hands out of the picture here! The chains are rather long though, which gives a lot of room to play around with!

(・∀・) ” You can also choose to display her with her visor completely removed!”

Oooh! She suddenly looks so different! (●´ω`●)

You have the choice to display her in both her standard look, and the more revealed look! What a beautiful face she has!!

(・∀・) “The visor is planned to connect into the back hair parts, so it’ll be very easy to attach and remove as well!” 

Great for clumsy people like myself! ♪ (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

(・∀・) “Take a look at her from the back as well!”

She is wearing a black one-piece that has been very faithfully reproduced in Nendoroid size… wait a second!! <○><○>

(・∀・) “Normally characters with long hair cover up the back of Nendoroids entirely… but Rider has such lovely bare skin that we just had to show it off a little! Particularly those shoulder blades!

Sometimes Nendoroids need a little change from the standard to accommodate certain character traits better! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
It might be a little hard to tell from the photo… but you have to run your finger along her shoulder blades when she joins your collection! They’re perfect!!

(・∀・) “She only comes with two expressions – her standard expression and a shouting expression… but the addition of the visor works on either expression, meaning you have a total of four different face options! The shouting face can be used without the visor for a pose like this…!”

/Bellerophon\

It never featured in the current anime, but in a separate route of the series she uses this Noble Phantasm to summon a powerful pegasus!

The expression makes her look ready to jump into action!! (((( ;°Д°))))

(・∀・) “The magic circle drawn in her own blood is also included!”

The magic circle was made with very close cooperation with the publishers, allowing for a very precise reproduction! A little stand is also included to display it up vertically with Rider! (。・ω・)ノ゙

(・∀・) “There are all sorts of ways to enjoy her! With visor or not, be sure to display her with the other Nendoroids in the Fate series!” 

Summon this adorable little servant to your side!

Nendoroid Rider!

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!!

See the GSC website tomorrow for more information! (`・ω・´)ゞ

Plus! Orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a special ‘Servant Summoning Circle’! 

The circle won’t be available anywhere else, so don’t miss out!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Also, don’t forget about this Nendoroid from last year…

Nendoroid Archer: Super Movable Edition!

Orders for Archer are open until 21:00JST today! Don’t miss out!!
っ(σ・∀・)σ⇒ http://goodsmile-global.ecq.sc/gscnenwd00486.html

Nendoroid Archer also comes with a Summoning Circle when ordered from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP!

(・∀・) “The first half of the new anime series may have ended, but I’m sure we’ll be working on some more figures in preparation of the second half!”

Finally a quick notice about one of threezero’s items which is currently up for preorder!

From the RoboCop remake comes a figure of the reborn black colored RoboCop!

From the 2014 remake of the popular film ‘RoboCop’ comes a 1/6th scale articulated figure of RoboCop 3.0, following on from the previously announced silver ‘RoboCop 1.0’. The difference between the two is more than just color however – the design differs in all the ways it did in the actual film as well! His visor is fitted with a LED light-up feature (batteries sold separately).
The holsters on his left and right thighs can be used to hold the included stun gun and machine gun respectively. Both guns also come in a second form to display them being held as well, and the machine gun can be extended manually. He also comes with three sets of interchangeable hand parts – relaxed hands, fists and hands for holding his guns.

The figure is not only fully articulated, but also features light-up effects and many more fun functions!

Plus he is a 1/6th scale figure standing 320mm tall! Quite an impressive size! (σ・∀・)σ

Just look at the amount of detail put into his design!! 

Take a look at more photos over on the Product Page! ♪

Be sure to find your local threezero distributor if you want to get your hands on him!! ♪
