Gothic style Saber

Ok another Saber is up hehe. This time is Alter version of Dark Saber but instead of wearing armor, she’s wearing a black and grey Gothic dress. She looks real good in it too, one of the best looking 1/8 Saber in my opinion. I first saw pictures of her on Riuva’s blog, so I went looking for her at some of my local hobby store. I was quite surprise when I found one store that have her in stock, because they were selling it at about 9000 yen. Only after I did some search on-line did I know that she’s actually discontinued and a pretty hot figure as well hence the high price. She’s also one of the first figure that I have seen bootleg on, practically most of my local shop is selling the bootleg version. Well with the help of a friend, I manage to get her in the end at about 7000 yen, so she’s actually the most expensive 1/8 that I have in my collection. Well worth it though :)

The highlight of this figure is the Gothic dress, the detail in it is superb

Same as the Saber-Alter I posted up recently, her eyes and hair color are different from normal Saber and she also lost her “ahoge”. Here she still retain her cute face while in Griffon version her face is more serious.

As I mention earlier the dress is very detailed.

The skirt is made of two layers, a grey layer at the bottom and a black on top. All nicely detailed and removable too :)

I am very satisfied with the quality of this figure, she may cost me more than the other 1/8 that I have but it’s well worth it. The production quality is really good and the amount of detail they put into her is superb.
