Today’s post is my figure photos of Cu-Poche Saber by Kotobukiya, which is sculpted by Haruhi Murakami.
For those of you out there who’s not familiar with Saber. Saber is the fictional character in Japanese visual novel, Fate/Stay Night by Type-Moon. She is a strong-willed woman, full of courage and very determined to win the Holy Grail war. I personally like that character of Saber. One of the reasons why she become one of my favorite characters to collect.
I haven’t played the visual novel but I have watched the anime, Fate/Stay Night and its prequel, Fate/Zero, and Rin’s route Unlimited Bladeworks movie. I enjoyed the series so much that I ended up buying their chibi figures.
Now that Kotobukiya made a Cu-Poche version of her, I wonder if they will make another character from the series. Hmm.
She arrived with Kirino Cu-Poche several weeks ago and this figure is sponsored by Kotobukiya. Thank you! ^_^
Cu-Poche Saber comes with 2 extra face plates, 2 swords and avalon, 4 extra hands, magnetic base and her plastic. I was kind of hoping that there’s an extra flowy hair maybe, to make her pose natural.
I chose dark and battle-themed backdrop for this photo shoot which I think is perfect for Saber. I remember Saber fighting so powerful in the series in low light setting. I think it’s hard to make a cheerful photo of Saber, but I will try to make one with other Cu-Poche girls when I have time.
So here ya go:
When Kotobukiya released a Cu-Poche version, I was thrilled to get my hands on her. Imagine a chibi Saber with an elegant and graceful stance, detailed armor and articulation make this figure precious as ever.
Her dress/armor is just perfectly detailed. However, there are a couple of times when her pop-sleeves-like on her shoulder fall off (sorry I don’t know what its called). It’s actually detachable to help you move around her shoulders and pose her arms the way you want. So if you are outdoor, be very careful not to lose them. There were about 5 shots when I realized her sleeves were missing and I had to look for them on the floor. Glad I found them.
Same thing with her ahoge ( literally foolish hair, which is a visual cue common to Japanese anime and manga.- Wiki). It has tendency to fall off when you are adjusting her pose and you wouldn’t even notice it. So be very careful even when you are at home.
I am really happy to add her in my Saber Collection. I think it’d be nice to have a Cu-Poche Saber Alter too. Haha! >_<
I think that’s all for today, next Cu-Poche photos will be Black Magician Girl, kindly look forward to it! ^_^
