Fate/Stay Night - Saber Alter 1/7 - Huke Collaboration Package

*Packaging*
The box is stunning. It has a large picture of the figure on the front and plenty more in the back. The side has a picture of the illustration that inspired the figure. The box is extremely sturdy. However beautiful the box is, I was not a fan of how the figure is taken out. It must be pulled out from the side and a front panel is slid out to get the blister out.

A huge surprise for me was that the print it comes with is already framed!http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2016/09/23/1624506.png

*Sculpting & Painting*

Since this is WHS, the sculpting and painting is flawless. It looks identical from the prototype, and with the price tag it better be!
I do wish her lips were a little pink and glossy with a subtle blush on her cheeks, but thats just a personal preference as it is not present in the illustration.
Her lack of armor in the back divided collectors as its either you love it or hate it. Many collectors believe that lack of armor makes no logical sense, which is true, but I still like the back and the lovely sculpting of the back of her skirt. I do believe that this was intentional to add a little fan service to make it easier to look up the skirt. (creepy.)
The chains that wrap around her feet need to be placed that way and it comes with instructions (in english & Japanese.) on how to do so. Don't understand why its not already set up that way to be honest.

*Posing*
The figure faithfully recreates this Huke image. In figure form her face is a little more gentle, and I really love the way it came out. For me personally, the face is the most important part of a figure, and saber alters is certainly very pretty. I must add Sabers face is exquisite in profile. She is very photogenic from just about all angles.

*Base*
The base is unlike anything Ive ever seen. Can't think of a better word than "cool". Everything about this figure is cool. Of course you'd assume she would wobble a bit because of the unsymmetrical look of the base, and that is a little true, but that is only if you shake it hard.

*Final Verdict*

This Saber is lovely albeit with a very heavy price tag. I ordered her through GSC which was the right choice since she is extremely heavy. If you want her, I highly recommend you get her from a fellow user NOW as i expect her price to only rise and shipping will be astronomical.
I do not regret this purchase, although I don't plan on spending that much on a figure ever again. She is quite the conversation piece and will be an impressive addition to anyones collection. I highly recommend to anyone who loves Hukes artwork or Saber.

The figure was beautiful, and it was supposed to emulate the original art, but I really wish she had been posed more dynamically. Sold her off already (however, it is my own fault for ordering after seeing her prototype)

Pekola3 vuotta sitten#14929338Why do you believe she will rise in price? I know that her shipping costs will probably make it a very hard sell now, but I don't know if that'll apply to her actual cost (read: price without the shipping cost).
I think the 2,000¥ Goodsmile thing is the cheapest you'll get it shipped and that's done now.

whs figures usually maintain their initial price or rise, so its likely this one might be pricier to get later on. Maybe the high shipping cost will lower the figure price, who knows.
