Saber was given the honor of becoming the first Fate/Stay Night character to be release by Revoltech, she’s also the first figure from Revoltech 2G line. I ordered Revoltech Saber from Play-Asia because of the cheaper price, she arrive on Wednesday just as I had expected. As usual there wasn’t much protection around the box but fortunately Saber’s box was not damage. Before she arrive, it was posted in forums by some people who already got her she got a broken elbow right out of the box. This really got me worried but there was nothing I could do about it as P-A already shipped her out. So as soon as I received her I quickly took her out of the box and check for any broken parts and was relieve that she’s perfect.
I had actually took some photos of her on the day I received her, but I decided to retook them after I adjusted my mini photo booth a bit. I use the background cardboard from the box for the first photo. I tried to get Saber into the same post as the picture on the cardboard and this is the closest that I can pose her.

The articulation is pretty good as usual but I wish she comes with different set of hands so that I can make a proper pose for this shot. But still it came out pretty good.
The skirt armor have joints that allow the legs to move around. There’s a joint between the hand and the arm as well, this makes it easier to make her hold her sword with both hands.
She comes with a base to help her stand and also an extension to the base for jumping and flying pose but it’s not easy to pose her in the air as she’ll needs to be properly balance otherwise she’ll just fall down.
She comes equip with two swords, one a transparent sword which should be her noble phantasm “Invisible air” and the second sword is Caliburn. She should have comes with Caliburn and Excalibur though and maybe with Excalibur scabbard Avalon as well, oh well I can dream .
Quite detail face for a small figure, I should stop calling her small as she’s actually about 14cm tall standing straight, only a head plus shorter that Kotobukiya 1/8 Saber.
Kaiyodo will also be releasing Revoltech Dark Saber in July which is even cooler looking. It seems Dark Saber will comes with Excalibur. If she do then it will be great.
