Shuu-chan, the new member of the GSC planning team, is practicing his pose imitation!

At Good Smile, all employees must start off with this training! (Just kidding :P)


Anyway, today we’ll be looking at:

Saber Alter ~Vortigern~!

A lovely 1/7th scale figure of the knight tainted by a black shadow, ‘Saber Alter’! She is posed at the point of slashing down with her sword in a wonderfully dynamic pose!

Let me start off with this…

This is an incredible figure…!!


This is how she looks from the back!

Her huge skirt fluttering up in the moment is just beautiful… everything about this figure has really grabbed me! It’s stunning!


Her armor has a nice metallic paint coat!

That shiny look is wonderful! The red lines are all done by using stamp printing – I think each piece would be done separately and then put together… but there are over 10 parts just in this photo… it must take ages! (By the way, if you’re not sure what stamp printing is, check out Part 4 of my Factory Field Trip!)


A face ready to take on anybody!

It has just the same feeling to it as the original illustration by Takeuchi-sensei!

The base features little stalagmites around her feet!

The Good Smile Team Production team really is good at what they do… even the base has some beautiful touches to it! The base uses the area in front of the holy grail where Shitou and Kotomine fight their final battle as a motif for it’s design!

Now for a message from the GSC Support team, if you pick up the figure do take note of this!

When placing Saber onto the base, it’s a good idea to warm up the soles of her feet with something like a hair dryer so that she can attach to the stand more easily (just be careful not to burn yourself or melt the figure!). Also try to place both feet simultaneously rather than one at a time. Hold the figure at the knees while pushing it down onto the base – if you hold it by the ankles you might find the armor is sharper than it looks!


You can also replace her fringe…

To display her wearing her mask!

Saber Alter is well-known for her unique mask – it wouldn’t be the same without it! Fans of the series are in for a delightful figure… particularly seen we’re not done yet – she also comes with…

It was quite tough to get it all into one picture nicely. :P


But Vortigern isn’t just big…

It has gradient coloring on clear plastic!

It starts getting clearer and clearer from the center to the tip! Isn’t it pretty!?

She can hold other things too!

As long as the handle is long, then she should be able to wield it! Some other staff members said I should find a broom for her. ^^;
