Looks like I need to keep an eye on YHJ around the time of the festival. The price would probably be very high but that's the only possible way I could get it. (There's only 1 anime shop in auckland and they don't have anything I want at all. Plus their prices are a lot more expensive than importing by myself)

btw the Rider figure I got from YHJ a while ago was authentic. Got a TM sticker on the box and everything else looks pretty much the same as the one in other photos. Just got to be careful with the seller and check their feedbacks before bidding. Since it's directly from Japan, the chance of getting a fake is a bit less than places like ebay...but still got to be careful.

the matrix/highlander vibe with the added brown shoes

Was thinking of getting the Premium Artbook as well, meanwhile I have my hands on the Visual Artbook. Can't read Jap, but from the looks of it it basically has alot of calendar images (without the days), book covers, DVD volume covers, etc... you get the idea. Also has a DVD, CD, book, game catalogue at the end.

Essentially just a collection of almost all the production art I guess.

Saber, Rider... but why don't produced any good Caster figure?

Anyone know a very good one? I found one on the e2046, but i like Caster without her hood. Why? Because i don't see her ears, my favorite things on her!

looks like there will be another re-issue of the GoodSmileCompany Saber.

price at 6000yen.
1/8 Scale.
release date: December 07 (ideal for....X'mas present?)

http://www.goodsmile.info/products/g...sc0712-06.html

Personally, I like this Saber with armor and uses her ExCalibur in such a pose. However, her expression is something I cant get use to. I'm still aiming to get Rin and Illya for my F/SN set ><. So...i'll pass for now.

I like the pose and the face but i really wish they spend more detail on the hair.

You really have a hairfetish, don't you

I for one consider her facial expression off as well, almost like looking at a fanmade figure

iono guys, she's only being re-released only on AmiAmi.

I still don't see her on any of the other sites..

Also, the GSC page is filled with AmiAmi links. Some kind of exclusive release.

I have the figure and I think it's great. ok the facial expression is a bit weird, but everything else is amazing for the year she was released.

however out of the three i still prefer rin with berserker.

Now THAT Saber figure rocks my world. Fate/Zero Saber is very studly. I love the suit. Makes her look as dangerous as her Master. Saber's armor was sort of...too girly for a King, IMHO. But it seems like that's what Shirou was expecting (the traditional girls should wear skirts yadda yadda yadda) so...she got stuck in a skirt. Kiritsugu was more practical, god love 'im.

I'm not an action figures grrl but for this one, I'd make an exception

I didn't see anyone complaining when she's in the simple skirt and blouse. She looks like Shirou's maid instead of the hero she is. I think the suit makes her look more powerful. Definitely not one to be trifled with, like Kiritsugu. When Shirou was her Master, she was dressed like a servant (and he did view her as "just a girl"). The suit isn't her armor (Dark Saber's armour really is quite slick) it's just what Kiritsugu chose for her, I'd imagine. I personally see nothing wrong with it. She's not some wimpy girl, after all; she's a warrior. When she's not in her armor, what would one expect her to wear? (Though I have no qualms with her not wearing anything at all, some people might have issues with that )

The smile on Rin's figure with Beserker freaks me out. Seriously.

Exactly. Good job with refuting.

No complaints when she's in a bikini but when she's going Matrix, I hear a ton. Oh the irony.

Well, when you consider Kiritsugu's fighting style, her get-up really suits her don't you think? ^_~ (ok, sorry for the bad pun...)
