Kotobukiya's Cu-Poche Saber is now available for pre-order. This hotly heroine of Fate/stay night will be among the first characters to grace Kotobukiya's Cu-Poche line.
As previously mentioned, Saber comes with two versions of Excalibur (normal and a clear "invisible" one), an attack that clips onto the sword, Excalibur's sheath (Avalon), alternate hands, and a stand. Apparently she gets three faces (cool, angry, & smiling) rather than just two. Additionally, as one of readers noticed, the figure will have magnets in her feet and in the base of the stand. Cheating much, Kotobukiya?
While the magnets just add more awesome to this figure, I'm a little leery of Saber's balance since we aren't seeing the figure posed conventionally. Yes, there's some footwork going on there and all but we can't tell how much of that is owed to the magnets. Otherwise, Cu-Poche Saber is still a gorgeous figure.
For all you armored girl afficionados, Kotobukiya's Cu-Poche Saber has a list price of ¥3,800 and is scheduled for a June release. However, I want you to remember if you feel an attraction it could just be the magnets.
