Saber Extra
EX Figure (SEGA)
See this post and more at Keripo's Corner

Today we have the proud Saber Extra (aka. Saber Nero, aka Saber Red) from Fate/EXTRA. I usually don't like collecting prize figures, but I try to collect at least one figure of each kind of Saber and the alternatives weren't all too appealing (not a fan of Satoshi's faces in Gift's figure and Clayz's 1/6 figure is way too big). I'm probably going to sell this once I find a Saber Bride figure that I like (have SEGA's PM Figure preordered but it's also a prize figure, and Alphamax's looks tempting but a bit too boobaliscious...) Anyway, as Saber Nero would say, the show must go on!

The pose and expression of this figure doesn't do Saber Nero's flamboyant personality any justice

This is just one of my many TYPE-MOON figure reviews. Past reviews can be found here while a list of upcoming reviews can be found here. Most of my TYPE-MOON figures are second hand, ~B/B grade, so keep that in mind when going through the photos.

Same external box colour scheme as with Caster Extra, but with far less artwork (it's just a prize figure after all)

Comes with main body, screwed on base, two heads, and sword

Saber Nero's sword, Aestus Estus, is a fictional weapon, but arguably the coolest sword design of all the Saber swords (compared to Excalibur, Caliburn, proto-Excalibur, and dark Excalibur)

The prize figure comes with two heads; the left is in Wada Rco's style (game style) whereas the right is in Takashi Takeuchi's style

Wada Rco-style head - expression looks a bit too bland...
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/01/19/903844.jpeg

Takashi Takeuchi-style head - I generally prefer Takeuchi's style, but this wasn't drawn well at all...
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/01/19/903845.jpeg

Headless body!
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/01/19/903846.jpeg

Head pretty much just pops on, slightly loosely

The sword attaches via a peg in the arm

Together with the head

Lets take a closer look, alas, prize-figure quality

If you're wondering about Saber Nero's skirt, yes, its tranlucent

In the end, I have her displayed with Wada Rco's head (first one) cause the Takeuchi-style one just doesn't look right

Here's a CG from the game

Have you ever wondered how Fate/stay night would have been if all the servants were just Sabers?

As Crazy Clover Club comically explains, no, Saber Red actually isn't the same person as Saber Blue

Oh, and about her outfit? As explained in Carnival Phantasm, "Fool! It's not see-through. I'm letting people see!"

I like her a lot, she usually goes for 800 yen on Manda, a nice price for a nice prize, (maybe) because of that I don't feel the urge to buy a scaled (Clayz) "Red" Saber yet.

I don't collect non-nendos but for prize figure she does look well-made for its price!
Too bad I am too late in ordering Saber Bride's :\

She's lovely! I recently ordered her cheap on Manda and after reading your review I'm even more excited for her to arrive!
6 anno/i fa
I'm surprised she comes with two heads, seeing how minimal the differences are! :O

But still...I think I never saw a prize figure before with an option for head-choices!

Thank you for the review! You have reminded me of how much I want her! I better find her soon.

She's very lovely especially for a prize figure! Simple and she doesn't take up a lot of space.

You know I would totally like to see a Fate Series where both Mordred and Auturia were both in it having a rematch...maybe Gawain and Mordred/Lancelot grudge match.

Background: Better than I can world it, as I personally found Nero a bit annoying

The weapons are designed by Huke, explaining their coolness ;)
