Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Alter Saber Maid, Such Dust!

It’s no secret that I love used figures, I’m a huge bargain hunter and finding figures for cheap is just an awesome feeling. There are just some awesome things about Pre-loved figures, you can see on said figure how much the previous owner loved her and cared for her. From how well they took care of the original packaging, to the figure itself, and i have to say i was stunned at how Saber came to be in my possession.

She came in a box with two other figures, four in total with another figure in a separate box. Now saber didn’t come damaged and neither did her box. But i’ve never seen a figure so dusty.

Saber had a layer of dust on her that even my air compressor couldn’t remove, I had to soak her in lukewarm soapy water and a scrub her with a soft bristle toothbrush.

Now she’s all clean and fancy! but she also had a bit of paint transfer on her right leg. Nothing a bit of Paint Thinner and a Q-Tip couldn’t fix!

I’m still amazed at the price she was sold at $20. Considering she has a retail price of 7,800 she could have easily gone for more. But i wasn’t about to complain about getting her at too good a price.

This maid outfit has to be the sexiest outfit for Saber ever made.

It’s funny how Io keep getting more Saber figures, I told myself long ago i’d stop getting Saber figures as i didn’t even like Fate/Stay Night that much. But it’s too hard to pass up a good figure!

Now I own a total of 6 Sabers and will end up with a total of 9 Sabers with the Saber Lion Nendo, Saber Lily PVC and Saber Lily Nendo.

Love her thigh highs, the ribbon is just a very sexy touch.

I also thinksaber has the best undies out of all my figures.

Enjoy the view

It’s hard not to stare right boys?

even a top view of the ladies

Love the open back to the Maid uniform.

I also love how her skirt just flows so well.

This Saber was purely an impulse buy. How could i pass up on her for only $20! Saber really is cute but she isn’t a figure that looks good head on. Somehow she looks like her ears are just huge from head on. if you even look at all the promotional picture they are somehow from the side as she just looks best from an angel and not head on. She completely changes from what way you are looking at her. Still a great figure an I’m very glad Dirtybeast had to sell her and that I was lucky enough to snap her up first!

    Dust on figures is a never ending battle. I haven’t dusted off my figures since the last time I reorganised my cabinet and that was a LONG time ago. Strangely enough I don’t get all that much dust on them.

    Also #20 is a bargain for a figure.

  5. ron~ says:

    yeah, i hate figurine with dust too, but some of my figurine are quite dusty (the ones outside display cases :p).

    for $20.. no brainer, I’ll buy her instantly haha, i passed this saber before (mainly because I don’t like the face).

    I figured you were the one to snatch up the Saber maid figure before i did. I am hoping someone on DC offers her up again for a good price.

    I received Sekirei Miya from Dirtybeast….and she was also dusty. Even her box was dusty. Had to use compress air also and use Mr. Clean Magic eraser to clean off paint transfer. Never thought about using Paint thinner. Either way i am thankful for Dirtybeast in giving me a 2nd chance to obtain Sekirei Miya and was quite a bargain.

    Saber Maid really is a beautiful figure, I own it myself, but with a pink dress instead of a black^-^. Its a pre-painted kit, her hand was broken, but she was very cheap, too :3

    I also love saber figures, but I’ve never seen fate stay night until now. Its the same with yoko XD

  8. Figure Maniac says:

    WOW for 20 bucks and it was originally 80? What was going through that the seller’s head? For dust, I use a clean paint brush to get it off.

  9. Divine Fang says:

    Wah! 2009 is like “Saber Year”. Nice pantsu shots ^_^!

    I pack some of my figures back in to their boxes, especially the white Koto’s 1/5 Nanako.

    I actually get more dust on my figure bases than on the figures themselves. It’s annoying, so I take care of it. My Spike Spiegel PVC has a nice little layer of dust that just seems to seep into his hair. It’s not noticeable, though.

  11. Lovelyduckie says:

    Great deal! I couldn’t resist buying her even at $70! I already had the GSC maid Saber and I tried to tell myself that one maid saber was enough! But 1 maid Saber is never enough! I’d love to have the Clayz Maid Saber too!

    i dust mine at least once a week cause my room gets tons of dust for some strange reason

    seriously she was a steal

    sadly no cast off then it would have made it the perfect saber figure

    it sucks but if you dust regularly it doesn’t get that bad

    yep the ones in my display case rarely et dust but i have so many outside of that case that i have to dust all the time, if she weren’t $20 i would hav passed as well

    oh magic eraser sounds much safer to use than paint thinner, i’ll try that next time myself

    see then you have to see fsn it’s not the best but worth a watch and you must see Gurren Lagann is only for yoko’s awesomeness

    @Figure Maniac:
    yeah i tried that at first but it was really caked on there

    @Divine Fang:
    i never pack my figures unless it’s the hot summer months and i’m worried about leaning, but it’s rare now

    oh my spike has it bad, he’s on the top shelf that gets the most amount of dust so i have to clean him all the time

    a good saber is hard to pass up

  13. […] Choo’s Classifieds had posted this sale, I already knew of three I had to get. Had to get Alter Saber Maid, Good Smile Company Nida and Max Factory Mai Shiranui. It was impossible to not get Alter Kanu in […]

  14. DirtyBeast says:

    My Room gets Such Horrible Dust espcially where she was on the very top of the box shelf…i’m just to lazy to keep with it. i really hope it wasn’t to much trouble

  15. Dancing Queen says:

    no trouble at all, my room gets tons of dust as well and it’s to be expected plus when you’re selling them off you don’t care as much about dust

  16. DirtyBeast says:

    Well thank you for being So Understanding. You enjoying the other two figures i hope?

  17. Dancing Queen says:

    totally love them thanks so much again!

  18. Fenrir72 says:

    Also own the re-issue. She really is a beauty! Compared to the Goodsmile maid version, like this face better, the slight smile and the very detailed pantsu…err maid costume hehehe

    where do you find most of your figures so cheaply?
