Last 2 weeks of December was known to me as the “Holy Auction War”, trying to win a lot while losing at the same time, as I was about to lose my command seals(cash) the Holy Grail(eBay) granted me a new servant from ancient Rome, Emperor Nero suddenly appeared before my very otaku eyes. . . . .
My 2nd review will be covering Sega’s rendition of the extravagant, tyrant but still kawaii Saber from the PSP game Fate/Extra.
The box which imprisons Saber has an impressive design.
Aside from the main figure, it only has a few things with it,the crimson red sword, Aestus Estus: The Embryonic Flame, as well as an exchangeable head with an alternate art style from a artist that I don’t know 😛
Her Majesty herself.
2nd head with different art style, ahoge much!
Outside the box:
The figure looks really impresive despite the Manufacturer no? When I first saw her I thought it was the figma ver.
Really like that flowing effect of her dress
The glossy red paint reminds me when I play around with poster paint when I was a child
Her Majesty is so extravagant and yet . . . . . . white pantsu?! . . . .
A close up on the face, she doesn’t really look like a tyrannical emperor or extravagant spender now does she?
nice job on the gold linings of the her dress, it really adds a good amount of detail to the entirety of the figure
The see-through frills on the sleeves of her dress also looks good.
Hope they have more Sega Prize figures like this @_@
Probably one of my most favorite part of the figure, the boots have a nice shade of gold and its fairly detailed as well, though the base seems boring at least its red so it doesn’t look too out of place.
A close up on the alternate face, I like the first one compared to this cause this one doesn’t look like an emperor that enjoys theaters or a luxurious life (if you have played Fate/Extra or know your roman history you would understand this). This looks more like a face that Arturia would pull off.
Same hairstyle and ahoge that Arturia carries, the ribbon always adds a nice touch to everything even mahou shoujo. . . .
Some close up to the back. . . . . . The figure could have been a great. . too bad there’s some paint damage (well it is normal for Sega Prize figures. . . . . sigh). I’ll try to fix it once I have more time 😛
Well, that covers the review of this figure, overall I would say its better than expected, really impressive, a real treat from Sega, with the price of which I bought her from (Php 880 = 1760 yen) its really a good buy. If you want more figures like her and happen to live at the Philippines, please to drop by Greattoysonline, they really have a lot to offer you there.
This finishes it. Thanks for viewing, please come and visit again!
