Saber Extra

Finally figure material arrived again, the Saber EXTRA – swimsuit version, which I was really looking forward to will be on review today. In 2015 I bought many swimsuit figures, I must really like summer the beach and pretty girls in a variety of swimsuits (´ ▽`).。o♡.

Saber EXTRA was manufactured by Alter, the release date was in early October 2015. The figure was sculpted by Hashimoto Ryou. I was quite excited when I learned that the figure scale was 1/6 with her kneeing pose she measures 18 cm , the size gives her a good presence.

Never was a fan of Saber in most Fate animes, she was interesting as heroine, but didn’t win my heart. In UBW which aired recently that changed a bit, she was quite cute.

I often mentioned that I like Saber in alternative clothes, that’s the reason why I bought the maid R version. In Fate/EXTRA the Saber character received a rather drastic makeover, in personality and physical appearance. Now she is the heroic spirit of Roman Emperor Nero.

Nero is most well known for some pyromanic behaviour, but there is more than this. In the BBC docudrama “Ancient Rome: The Rise and Fall of an Empire” Nero was portrayed by Michael Sheen, a very impressive acting, haha maybe also some overacting, that showed the Insanity of an Emperor who wanted to be an well regarded actor.

For the Saber character, the insanity level was toned down and I guess she is also very likeable as Saber (Nero), still it is a petite, eccentric, narcistic Saber with some Gilgamesh arrogance.
I unfortunately haven’t played the Fate/EXTRA game, but it’s definetely a funnier Saber.

Saber has her usual tied up hairstyle, on this figure it’s decorated with red ribbon, the bangs are wildly arranged and on top is a huge ahoge, combined with the bikini it can only look cute.

The word that comes to mind when looking at her face is flirty, she is more than aware about how much of a bombshell she is. Saber has a seductive, challenging gaze for you.

The pretty, green big eyes stand out, the mouth has a nice look, it’s actually a mischievous smile, that emits a sense of danger. Lets do some playful wrestling at the beach…

Hopefully Saber won’t be too rough…

The alternative Saber looks fantastic with the body of a grown up woman, well with a body size of 150 cm ^^ The trained muscles and softness of her feminine curves is nicely balanced. The arms appear somewhat brawny, it’s cool. Obviously Sabers bust grow by at least 4 letters into and ample bosom. It’s a good big size, without looking out of proportion, her cleavage is very pretty, it also underlines the seductive, tough and confident woman appearance.

The pose is really cool and nicely articulated, Saber is showing off both, her womanly curves and her superiority in strength. She grants you the honor of staying at the same beach as her.

The figure also has pretty single fingers and nail polish, it’s good that there is no gap between hands and the contact areas on her body. On the left hand shes is wearing a flashy bracelet consisting of shiny purple beads.

The backside has a great definition like shoulder blades and middle line, Saber also has wide hips with a beautiful butt attached to it. Personally I would have liked her thighs to be slightly chubby, but since Saber is a fighter and no cuddly Gravure Idol, the lack of flab makes sense

The sculptor did an amazingly good job with this Saber, the details on her body are hot on front and backside, also the belly looks marvelous, eerything is very convincing and together with ALTER’s special skin texture, this Saber in bikini turned out especially appealing.

Saber EXTRA has a pretty outfit for the beach, a wild pattern bikini with a rather big ribbon under her breasts and a side tie bikini bottom.  On bikini figures you often see tops that barely cover anything, but the top supports Sabers ample bosom in a decent way.

Final Words

I was looking forward to receive the Saber EXTRA – swimsuit version and my expectations weren’t dissapointed. ALTER delivered a wonderful figure with top notch quality. This Saber is incredibly sexy, at the same time she’s also tough looking and just a beautiful beach figure.

In case you want to see more of her check windcase post ^^

    Fate/EXTRA (I don’t remember how it’s supposed to be capitalized) was a horrible, horrible video game, and yet I guess I’d say I enjoyed playing through it. Nero Saber was a fun character, at least; I like the original Saber, as I have a thing for those honorable, respectable anime fighter girls, but Saber Extra is such a different character that just observing the contrast is enjoyable. And of course her design is nice since she has the same basic design as blue Saber. She looks great here, though I kinda wish she were standing up, since I always prefer figures to be standing up, and I really wish she wore a more revealing swimsuit, since one of the hallmarks of Nero Saber is that she is oddly happy to show off her skin, especially her buttocks.

      Oh even a horrible, horrible game 😀
      Yes, red Saber is described as if she was an interesting lady with a enigmatic personality.
      Standing up would have been nice, too but I just liked the buxom Saber version they presented.
      Well, yes she shows her curvy body in a rather modest bikini ;D

    The funny thing saber Nero always give more “womanly charm” than the arthuria ver. XD I would say this the best saber figure in swimwear, her appearance also looks cool like a bikini models, thought not as skinny as them XD

    • wieselhead

      Yeah, it’s different than arthuria except hair and height. I like the predator expression and the curvy body on small Saber XD
      Oh I also like the Fate/Hollow Ataraxia – Saber as bikini version. Saber Nero appears quite sturdy additional to her “womanly charm”, it’s hot!

    The bikini strings are a little too thick for my liking, but other than that, awesome figure :p This just reminds me, I have another Saber Extra figure I haven’t take out of the box, not swimsuit version though :p

    • wieselhead

      Yes, for some reason they appear unnecessary thick, I never saw the illustration this figure was based, maybe the company wanted to have something unique on her bikini ;D She’s really awesome ( ̄▽+ ̄*) Ah I see, take her out of the box soon.

    Interesting that you said you never like Saber in Fate series. Neither do I. I don’t have a favorite character in fact. I like to watch Fate series for its actions only, hehe.

    Having said that, I always find it bizarre to see Saber in swimsuit, even though this one is cute. I guess I’m used to seeing the “manly” side of her.

    • wieselhead

      Haha it’s strange that Saber as main heroine never captured my interest,
      ok in UBW it happened more or less, before I mainly liked Gilgamesh, he’s so shiny *kyahhh*

      I understand that you feel a little puzzled about the altered Saber here haha.
      Well her arms are still somehow manly XD

  5. Miette-chan

    Ha! I find that amusing. I found Saber to be in just kinda there in UBW, kinda like this is Fate so we need Saber. Even then I did like her a lot more than in the old Fate/Stay Night anime from back in the day. Wonder why…

    Oh man, I tell you, you have no idea how much better this Saber is. I recommended looking up the conversation you can have with her in the game.

    But yest best Saber, cuter personality, better bosom, better booty, bigger ahoge. An improvement over the original in every way possible! Besides, she likes both girls and boys and her love confession was super sweet. I just can’t stop thinking of all the positives she has!

    Looking at this photos, which you need to share the secret of your nice sunset lighting for, I feel twinge of regret at skipping her. Her body is just so pretty to look at, all the detail is amazing and definitely above the norm for a swimsuit figure. If only it wasn’t for that garish swimsuit!

    It’s alright though, I will just wait patiently for my bride next year.

    • wieselhead

      Haha, maybe Saber works better as buddy than love interest for Shirou, maybe you remember this three person date in UBW,
      with Rin Shirou and Saber, this made her quite charming, she played baseball,
      put on glasses and so on. In another episode Saber shed bitter tears, all this made her quite human, cute and less stoic.

      I guess I can imagine, although I found the wiki hard to follow ^^
      Haha thats interesting, well I like the look in her eyes with the cool, sexy expression.

      Oh, I can make a drawing at least the setup , I tried something new this time ^^. This is my third swimsuit figure from ALTER, they are all so good ♡,
      they understand how to create the illusion of a woman’s soft skin. The figures look so beautiful that I don’t miss a castoff feature at all ;p
      The bikini pattern is a little crazy I admit, but when seeing all this skin I don’t care anymore.

      I wonder why her bride dress is white, is it the same character, actually?
