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]

GSC – Saber Lily ~Distant Avalon~

Oh man have I been busy! With a new job, boyfriend, hanging with friends and getting things in my personal life together I feel i’ve been neglecting my site just a tad. Also with my serious lack of funds as of late it’s been hard to keep up with the latest figures. But luckily I didn’t have to pass up on the wonderful Saber Lily.

I’m not even the biggest fan of the game/anime but I do love Saber’s character design and this version of Saber was impossible to pass up!

Such a lovely kickass face!

I do believe she’s the only figure i have that is scowling but still exudes such beauty!

Knowing Good Smile Company, they’ll be smart and release a special limited edition of Saber Lily with a smiling face! It would be hard to pass that up!

Letting my pictures speak for themselves on this post. It’s a little late tonight and while she is such an amazing figure that i could go on and on about but really why gush so much about her when honestly I do believe these pictures speak for themselves! Her pose is stunning, her face is awesome, her paint is flawless. Nothing but perfection from GSC as always. The wait has been long, but it was well worth it for this amazing pvc goddess!

-Figure Info-
Manufactured by Good Smile Company
1/8 Scale
Initial release in September ’08

    Ah, Saber Lily, beloved of the figure collecting masses. It’s interesting that there are bootlegs, but given the popularity I suppose that is to be expected. Is this a limited run?

  2. Leonia says:

    It’s a beautiful figure ^^ I love dynanamis and sculpture details. Her expression is great too. And your pictures, very nice ! I love your background. Congratulation 🙂

    Have you tried to remove Saber’s breastplate? I don’t have the links available to me at the moment, but I’ve seen others do so. Personally my Sabers breastplate doesn’t appear to be removable. It jiggles a bit but I don’t want to break her.

    I think my only complaint about Saber is how much space she takes up in my cabinet, a whole shelf all to herself. And while she deserves it, I don’t have the space!

      i haven’t seen her with the breastplate removed, but mine is stuck right in there and i as well am too scared to try and remove it

  4. lu-k says:

    This figure is definitely a master piece. Love her pose, her face expression… and well, it’s Saber!

  5. FancyIndia says:

    Know nothing about figures, but those are some nice pictures lady. 🙂

    Also, I like the flowiness of her skirt.

  6. Pedropinilla says:

    Well, it’s the only new figure in a long time but this one looks really good (and her patsu too ^^).
    The metal armor and the base are impressive and her serious face gives to Saber a great aura.

  7. Vixums says:

    I love that even though she’s in an extremely badass outfit, she still has lace and fluff underneath that dress <333 Lovely figure!!

  8. Bill says:

    Now that you have a job, Do you think we can stop hearing about how broke you are??

    • Dancing Queen says:

      lol, sorry about that… Even with my job it’s been tough, hours suck ad the bills piled on high when i was jobless. Expect a little less bitching that before but i’ll always be bitching about soemthing ^_~

  9. phossil says:

    This Saber Lily is the best of the best. great pics.

  10. eyespeeled says:

    hey whats the difference between this saber lily and the one u posted long ago =/?

  11. karnos says:

    words can barely discribe how beautiful this figure is.

    Btw how do u tell the difference between a real and a bootleg edition?
    I live in Singapore and have found one in a mall that costs SG$219.
    and am saving money for that now. expecting to get it in a few days time.

  12. Figure Maniac Edwin says:

    I was wondering when you’d put up a Saber Lily post. I love mine with her scabbard on.

  13. Primula says:

    Nice review. With this I am interested to see what differences there are between the Alter release and the Good Smile one. Both companies I like. When my Saber Lilly comes in I will have to take photos and send to you so you can try to compare. ^^ Looking forward to your next review.

  14. lovelyduckie says:

    I love that she is frowning in this figure. I’d probably only go for a smiling one of her if it was a confident smirk. But a smile like that is probably out of character for her.

  15. Lightoss says:

    Nice Review DQ!! As Excpected nice shoots!!

  16. DiStudios says:

    Great review and photos DQ :)I just opened up my one this week (first Fate figure I have ever bought).

    Have to say the “I mean business face” on this sculpt is fantastic 😀

  17. Blowfish says:

    A smiling face?Hell no!
    I love that she has such a pissed face! In fact I wish that more girls would come like this ^^

    Shes such an awesome figure and is one of my figures of the year together with Alters Yoko who has a badass face aswell ^^

  18. Katsura-chan says:

    I’m so glad to have her in my collection. She’s a beauty. I looooove Saber, she’s awesome. I think her non-smiling face is more like her. A too happy Saber wouldn’t do the trick.

  19. That Saber looks really cool. While I’m not a big fan of PVC figures, I have some, a Saber among them, that is wearing her normal clothes and two swords. It looks nice, but not as kick-ass as this one.
