Alter sure does love their Sabers. It seems like they have endless variations of her at every event, and we’ve got two at Wonder Festival. One is new: a bikini figure of Saber Alter that looks suspiciously like Wave’s Beach Queen. Same art? Either way, I’m disappointed: this is not the Saber I wanted, Alter!
Then we have their Saber Lily, looking lovely painted. Even though I have the garage kit, I can’t wait for orders to open up!

You know, we’ve been really up to date with our loot posts recently, getting them done right after boxes come in. Well, technically we got to July as soon as possible. AmiAmi decided to combine half of our July with our August stuff–the end of August to boot, so we had to wait a whole month for some of these beauties! Of course, we’re never really in a huge rush to get figures–we prefer to get them in small batches, so I can open one at a time and admire them all individually. So who did we get in our July order? Hit the jump to find out!

The Fate/Stay Night franchise has a ton of characters, but it always seems like only a handful get figures. Saber and Rin in particular are wildly popular, but of course they’re not the only characters in the series! Good Smile Company is making a set based on the cast of Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, and it includes a ton of people: Caren Ortensia, Illyasviel von Einzbern, Bazett Fraga McRemitz, Taiga Fujimura, Leysritt, and Stetho. There are also the “main” (aka most popular) girls in maid gear: Saber Alter, Rin Tohsaka, Sakura Matou and Rider.
A single blind box should run you ¥500, though of course you can get a case that will contain all of the figures. There’s also a secret! Orders open the 10th.

Since I started collecting, Alter’s stunning 1/6 Saber Alter Maid has been one of the figures that got away. She was available at a reasonable price when I started out, but I wasn’t really deep into the PVC world and focused more on vinyl so I skipped over her due to the price. I also passed up Alter’s limited Yukiko for $97, which says a lot about my PVC toy judgement at that point!
So when we found out in magazine scans that she would be getting a re-release, I was ecstatic! We’re also getting the matching normal Saber Maid, who is already up for order, but Alter is a release limited to Hobby Channel. She retails for ¥8,000, an amazing price for a 1/6 scale figure, and I can’t believe they kept her original pricing! Orders are open until March 31st and will be released in July, though I expect most proxies will sell out far before the end of March due to how coveted this figure is. Orders aren’t open at the regular places yet, but we’ll update when she is available!

The pre-order period for Dollfie Dreams Saber Alter and Saber Extra has ended, but that doesn’t mean that Volks has stopped serving up lovely images of their new dolls! They recently had Saber Alter model the Night Blue set from the November Outfit Collection. This set is definitely my favorite of the bunch, and I want it even more after seeing these pictures!
They also had Illya modeling one of the MDD outfits, and she looks as adorable as you’d expect. MDDs in general are painfully cute, but putting them in fancy outfits really ups the cuteness levels. It’s like they are trying to act grown-up! However, the painful endeavor of posing MDDs puts me off buying too many outfits for them. We’ve gotten confirmation on a DDdy II, so hopefully the MDD is up next for a much-needed joint upgrade.
Saber Alter looks prettier and prettier the more I look at her, and I think she’ll be a great addition to any DD family. Of course some of us have a long time to wait–mine won’t arrive until June!
