Max Factory: figma Fate/Stay Night Saber 2.0

I love this figure! figma is always hit or miss, but they do anime-styled figures really well. Saber 2.0 is another fantastic fantasy anime-styled figure from figma, and one that I am super happy to have. Saber 2.0 is a re-release worth picking up.

I know nothing of this character, but the Fwoosh’s thescreamman pointed me in the right direction for some research. Here’s the gist: she is the daughter of Uther Pendragon and the true “King Arthur.” She comes from a series of video games, anime, and manga. Having never seen the game, anime, or manga, I am totally clueless, but I do know that this figure looks amazing in my collection, specially next to Guts and Casca.

This is a small figure, but then the character seems to be a young female, so the size isn’t important. What is important is that this is a beautifully sculpted action figure. There is some really sharp sculpting on this figure, the folds in the clothes and the armor really pop. I’ve been rolling the figure through my fingers and posing it for the last few days and I love it.

Saber is packed with joints. She can pose left and right. While she does utilize standard figma joints, she has an incredible range of motion and can achieve a great many poses. Even her skirt is articulated, allowing for extensive posing. My favorite joint is the chest joint. The chest armor is hinged allowing for some serious crunch, without breaking up the sculpt. figma did an excellent job making the chest joint and the armor work together.

Saber comes with the usual figma accessories: hands, base, some extra faces. But the best part are the two swords and scabbards. As we know through various reviews of figma figures, they make some really good swords. To top it off they make great scabbards. Saber comes with two swords, Noble Phantasm Excalibur: Sword of Promised Victory, and Noble Phantasm, Caliburn: Golden Sword of Assured Victory. Noble Phantasm, the scabbard of Excalibur, Avalon: The Everdistant Utopia is also included, and if you know anything about the story, you know when activated this gives the user immortality for a period. Both swords are well done, but Caliburn is the one that pops due to the ornate styling.

As mentioned in the opening salvo, I love this figure. It’s a ton of fun to pose and play with, it pops on the shelves, and it fits with a number of different lines that I collect. Whether you know anything about the story or not, I recommend that you pick one up as soon as possible. You can get her today here:
