Saber Extra Dollfie Dream
Type-Moon x Volks
The pinnacle of the arts. The flower of Olympia. The tyrant of Rome.

In todays words, it's Red Saber! As Type-Moon fans will already know, Saber Extra is a different character to the usual Saber we are familiar with. I've been waiting for this since it was shown a few months ago so it's great to finally have it. As usual in my reviews click to enlarge any pics.

The box is really nicely done, I wasn't sure online but it looks good in person.

Nice graphic on the back.

Opening up and revealing Saber and her instructions.

And her clothes. Getting them on is a long and delicate procedure so I skipped straight to it.

Ignore my boring poses...

Hello!

http://myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2012/03/03/380498.jpeg

Some close ups of her face. I think it's the best of the Saber DD faces personally. Saber Extra has a really different personality from normal Saber and I think it shows quite well.

Detailing on the front of the dress.

The outfit looks just right. The wig is really nicely done; it's pretty much a clone of the original Saber wig but with red ribbons. The bun looks great. Unlike the Saber Lily wig this one is pretty strong so there's no need to worry about it too much.

Hair ribbons and shoulder epaulets.

Her back. The revealing window is present and accounted for. The instruction manual shows two different ways of doing up the dress; I strongly recommend following the second way, because the first way is likely to result in the buttons being ripped off.

I took the following shot to show the high level of detail in the embroidery.

Next her armored boots. This is the only armor that Saber Extra has.

This is her sword, Aestus Estus; The Embryonic Flame. It is absolutely huge and really well done. A random fact: this sword was designed by Huke of BRS fame.

This is how she looks in my cabinets with my collection:

You can see her trademark transparent skirt here.

And that's about it! Anyone who's got her ordered won't be disappointed. She's pretty impressive even after seeing the others. Saber Extra was 72,450 yen from the Volks international store. Orders have since closed but if anyone is desperate to get one there are loads around on auctions.

I got Saber Alter v2 at the same time, I can do an article on her if anyone is interested / actually found this useful.

WindsorSevenHow much is she going for on the auctions?

I had a quick look, I saw one on Yahoo for 95,000 yen buyout ($1170). There are some up for bids starting from retail price (74k).

There are plenty around but not cheap unfortunately. I'm glad I got them straight from Volks this time.

Congratulation, great collection.
