Tomopop Review: SPride.05 Saber Motored Cuirassier

Whatever happened to the ex:ride series? Max Factory and FREEing released more than 35 of them in 2010, everything from roller blades to jet skies for figma. But then the line simply dropped off. 2011 saw only one new release...

ex:ride Josef open for pre-orders

ex:ride seems to be getting busy again, because today has seen pre-orders pop up for Fireball Charming's Josef (or Joseph, depending on how you choose to spell it as I've seen it spelled both ways), the bike that Drossel...

[Update: Now available for pre-order.]

Up on the Max Factory blog, we have a double preview, starting with figma Emiya from Fate/Zero! Emiya is coming with an arsenal of weapons, including a Thompson Contender, Calico M950 and Walther WA2000; as well as three different faces. Which ones? One where he's got a cigarette in his mouth, one where he's glaring, and one where he's smiling that ... well, it looks a bit creepy from the angle they shot it at. Emiya will be open for pre-order Thursday (that's tomorrow) for ¥4,980, and will be coming in September.

Also up for pre-order Thursday will be the ex:ride SPride of Saber's bike. Coming in October, the exRide will be ¥4,980. It feels like its been a while since we've seen anything ex:ride-related, but I don't mind the tie-in to a figure that's released.

Finally, mentioned at the end of the post is news that figma Fate/Zero Saber will be re-released Thursday as well, with an arrival date of October. So if you missed out on her last time, now's your chance to get her, Emiya and her bike in one fell swoop!
