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.
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.
