Matou Sakura ~Battlesuit Ver~
1/8 PVC Figure (Alter)
See this post and more at Keripo's Corner

Been spending most of my free time playing Blade & Soul lately as well as setting up my new desktop, but the queues are forever, so here's another TYPE-MOON figure review! Today is the gentle kohai/perfect housewife, Matou Sakura, in her battle outfit

How the hell did I end up so low on the popularity ranking polls? Saber!?!?!?

This is just the one of a long series of post-unboxing, backlogged TYPE-MOON figure reviews. After moving to my new place, I set up a nice corner of the room for figure photography and took a bunch of review-style photo sets of figures as I re-unboxed them. Most of these figures are second hand, B/B grade, so keep that in mind when going through the photos.

The box. Same style as the Saber Alter figure I reviewed earlier.

Plain pink skirt. Wasn't as impressively painted as the Saber Alter

"Battlesuit" top, featuring her normal home outfit with a left arm from Dark Sakura

A random ribbon(?) that comes out from the Dark Sakura left arm

It connects via a small losely-fitting slot. For my figure, the ribbon keeps falling out but my friends stays snugly in, so your mileage may vary

The two heads. I have to say, even angry Sakura doesn't look all that angry... (Dark Sakura, on the other hand, is at a completely different level)

Couldn't find the CG for the battlesuit outfit doesn't actually exist in the Fate/hollow ataraxia visual novel, but here it is on this phone card

Here's an actual CG from Fate/hollow ataraxia of Sakura being gentle
http://keripo.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Fate_Hollow_Ataraxia_027.jpg

Here's another of Sakura being cute and clueless

Of course, you can't show a CG of Sakura eating something without following up with Sakurafish

Personally, I prefer the Suzuka version

V_Redgrave6 anno/i fa#1877114Here is a screen directly from the game CG gallery it.tinypic.com/...
Now I'm looking on YouTube for the video/walkthrough of the final battle, as soon as I find it I'll link here :)

Keripo6 anno/i fa#1874751Any chance you can find the CG for it? I never played through all of Fate/hollow ataraxia and was just basing this off CG rips.

V_Redgrave6 anno/i fa#1874742Nice review ^^
I must correct you on one thing: this outfit actually appears on Hollow Ataraxia novel, just by the end (final 'battle', where all Masters and Servants gathers against the main boss) and in just one screen (and yeah, the screen is exactly the same shown for the phone card) :) poor Sakura, she gets really few cool moments :/ (unless she turns in alter Sakura)

lol@suzuka.

Never felt much for the last three pieces you reviewed by ALTER. Both the expressions and quality of the figures are unimpressive. Really hoping the future will give us some nice Fate/Hollow Ataraxia figures... I won't be holding my breath for it though.
