Saber suits up in this new figma preview

Coinciding with the airing of the Fate/Zero anime series, the figma blog has released a few shots of -- you guessed it -- the Fate/Zero version of Saber! Despite my pathological love for the character, I actually wasn't blown away by t...


Volks unveils their new Dollfie Dream Sabers

Doll fans have probably been paying attention to Volks as of late, as they've been teasing some new Saber Dollfie Dreams, and now, they've revealed the two of them on their blog. On your left in the header is the Saber Fate/EXTRA version Do...


Banpresto's Fate/Zero Saber looks pretty much the same

Along with Gundam AGE and the Persona 4 anime, Fate/Zero is one of my most anticipated shows for the Fall 2011 season. Acting as the prequel to Fate/StayNight, I'm hoping that its more focused story will fix the things that I found wrong wi...


The heat takes its toll, Alter delays Summer Saber and Rin

It has been way too hot this summer. I experienced my first triple digits earlier this year and it's not something I would want to endure. Even figures need a relief from that kind of heat though, as Alter was planning to release Summer ver...


Alter delays three figures from June release to July

If you were hoping to get Charlotte E Yeager (Strike Witches), Saber Lily or Rin Summer Versions (Fate/Stay Night) this month, you might be disappointed (or in some cases, relieved) to know they are now set for release in July. I'm not sure...


Tomopop Review: Griffon's Diformate Saber Armor ver.

For the most part, when you think of figures of fate/stay night's Saber, you tend to think of these huge, beautiful, flowing figures with her wielding her sword, hair all in mid-movement, ready to strike something down. But with Griffon's D...


Clayz Fate/Stay Night Saber is open for pre-order

Hey, look, it's that Saber from garage kit circle T's system that we talked about a few weeks ago. Or, more precisely, it's the PVC version, which is a bit more accessible than the original kit and does not require a knowledge of how to pai...


Clayz announce a PVC version of T's system's garage kit

During our coverage of Treasure Festa in Ariake 4, we saw a nice selection of items from GK circle T's System. One of them was a red version (Fate/Extra) of Fate/Stay Night's Saber. While checking out the Clayz blog this morning, we noticed...


Winter Wonder Festival 2011: Phat Company's 1/8 Caster

Both Gift and Good Smile Company have had Fate/Stay Night lines going on for quite some time, so when I saw Caster here (who is from Fate/Extra) I assumed she was from one of the two. Hoped, actually, because I have been dying for both to c...


The 1/4 Saber Lily gets her full unveiling from Volks!

Just a few days before she's up for sale at Wonder Festival, Volks have released a couple of images of their 1/4 Saber Lily in colour! And boy, what a lick of paint can do to a kit!She looks like a much more attractive prospect with a littl...


[UPDATED]Gift's Saber Lily is finally up for order!

Gift's Saber Lily, like most of their Fate/Stay Night line, is  figure that elicits mixed emotions. And while I understand while some people are put off by her more realistic facial style, I can't help but gasp at how gorgeous this ren...


Gift's Saber Lily is ridiculously gorgeous

Gift's first Saber was a rather odd figure, with stunning armor (perhaps the best ever on a Saber figure), but a face that drew a lot of criticism. She was sculpted by Toda Satoshi and the face reflected his signature style, which definitel...


[UPDATE] Gift finally shows off their 1/8 Dark Sakura figure

Gift is a strange company. They focus mainly on plushes and seem to have mostly forgotten about figures, but when they do crank one out they're some of the best in the business. It seems like we've been waiting on them to continue their Fat...


Alter's Saber and Rin Summer Ver. prototype pics surface

Oh, what's this? It seems that Alter showed some new figures of Saber and Rin from Fate/Stay Night in their sumerwear at MegaHobby Expo 2010. The figures had a little card next to them that asked that attendees refrain from taking photos, b...

Good Smile Company listens to fans, fixes Rin's face

Good news everybody! I know a lot of you were disappointed with the painted version of Rin from Fate/Stay Night when it was shown off in magazine scans, and it seems the general consensus was one of frustration. I did not like what was show...


More on Kotobukiya's 1/20 Fate/Stay Night Saber

We first saw the Saber that Kotobukiya was working on at the All-Japan Model Hobby Show, and while our readers seemed less than enthusiastic, I thought that this Hoi Hoi-san-esque version of Saber actually looked pretty cool. I'm ...

Nendoroid Saber has the best new Nendoroid face ever

While we have enough Japanese-literate staffers at Tomo to be fine with reading Japanese blogs, I have to say that the launch of Mikatan's blog in English has been really great. For one thing, we can tell whether or not those cool...


Kotobukiya has kits galore at the All-Japan Model Hobby Show

Of course an event about models would be odd if it didn't have kits for you to work on. Kotobukiya showed off their plamo kits featuring releases we have known about. The 1/20 scale Saber of Fate/Stay Night was displayed along with a sign s...
