Fans of Saber should be elated, as this seems to be an unparalleled figure of her likeness, perhaps only challenged by the also unreleased Saber figure from Gift later this month.
The figure, セイバー・リリィ ～全て遠き理想郷(アヴァロン)～, is given the official translated name of Saber Lily ~Distant Avalon~ and comes from Good Smile Company.
Saber is a 1/7 PVC figure and sculpted by 河原隆幸 / Takayuki Kawahara, a sculptor who is not new to the trade and has done some Fate/Stay Night trading figures in the past, but this Saber is undoubtedly the premier piece of his career thus far.
Firstly, the set of officially released publicity photos give us a good look at the figure…
The Good Smile Saber Lily will be available in June for upwards of ¥8,800, and pre-orders have just opened at sites such as Play-Asia.
The figure looks great in the official photos, but the photos of a sample unit reviewed by Moeyo give a better idea of what she would actually look like in person:
The sculpting of her hair looks top notch, and her face seems well realized.
Her faux-metallic armored breastplate looks good from this angle…
…but it might look even better from this angle.
The detailing work on her armor and Excalibur looks superb.
Her battle dress billows out in an appealing fashion, plus it allows a view of her silky white garters she wears underneath, viewable in the official photos and in the full set of photos from Moeyo’s review.
