Neko Arc is a Type-Moon creation, based off the main heroine of Tsukihime, Arcueid; and making cameo appearances throughout Fate entries and is even a playable character in the Melty Blood series of fighting games. Neko Arc was actually the very first Nendoroid, meaning all your favorite anime characters were based off the proportions of this gremlin creature, but it also had this large Nendoroid Plus Deka release. </p> <p><img src="http://www.iquantascores.com/files/neko-01.jpg"></p> <p> Neko Arc comes in a fairly plain cardboard box. The interior is a simple plastic tray that holds this enormous Nendoroid and nothing else, there are no included accessories. </p> <p><img src="http://www.iquantascores.com/files/neko-02.jpg"><br /> <img src="http://www.iquantascores.com/files/neko-03.jpg"><br /> <img src="http://www.iquantascores.com/files/neko-04.jpg"><br /> <img src="http://www.iquantascores.com/files/neko-05.jpg"><br /> <img src="http://www.iquantascores.com/files/neko-08.jpg"></p> <p> The head and waist have a 360 degree swivel.

However, until just recently, Rin Tohsaka's Servant, Archer, had a noticeable lack of figures (especially compared to the franchise's favorite female, Saber). At long last he has gotten a suitably excellent Figma release from Max Factory.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774555-3/01.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="01" /></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774556-3/02.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="02" /></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774557-3/03.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="03" /></p> <p>Archer's got all the accessories he needs: five additional hand, an alternate yelling face, and a Figma stand with a special extension for jumping poses; plus a spare wrist joint. For weapons he has his two short swords, and a large bow and the sword he shoots from it. Yes, you read that correctly.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774558-3/04.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="04" /></p> <p>Archer stands a full head taller than most other Figma, making him a comparable height with most Figuarts.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774559-3/05.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="05" /></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774572-3/06.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="06" /></p> <p>On other Figma, you have to remove to a front hair piece to replace the face part. On Archer, however, the hair is molded onto both faces, so you just pop off one face and put on another. This makes the process much simpler. As well as the alternate face's expression change, Archer is also now looking to his left.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774573-3/07.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="07" /></p> <p>Poseability is good but less than expected, at both the elbow and knee there's barely more than 90 degrees of movement.

To do so, remove the front piece, wrap the hand around the handle, then reattach the front. It doesn't sound too bad but I felt like I was going to break the hand several times because of what a tight fit it is.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774626-3/25.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="25" /></p> <p>The results, however, are worth the effort. Getting Archer to hold the sword is incredibly simple and holds very well especially since the hand for it only uses three of his fingers.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774627-3/26.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="26" /></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774628-3/27.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="27" /></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774629-3/28.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="28" /></p> <p>At any angle Archer looks incredible as he prepares to fire off his Noble Phantasm.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774630-3/29.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="29" /></p> <p>And most importantly, Archer fits right in with any other warriors of his size, whether they be fighting in the Holy Grail War or the Rider War.</p> <p>This release does not disappoint in the slightest, unless you opened this review expecting a high-quality figure of super spy Sterling Archer instead, in which case I apologize for getting your hopes up. I'd recommend any Fate fan to pick this up, especially since plenty more Figma from the series seem to be on the way.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/774631-3/30.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=39fb0c6151a0d3d92235760158385bf9" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="30" /><br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.

We loved those – they were done really well. Imagine our surprise when Max Factory comes out and does one BETTER.</p> <p>That’s right; I think the Figma version is better than the Revoltech version.</p> <p>Saber comes with a bunch of accessories, including a load of variant hands, 3 different faces, 2 different hairstyles, 2 different swords (with sheaths) and a display stand.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/409723-5/P5246071.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=318365b5136048beecff58df08a32b47" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber" /></p> <p>The faces can be swapped out easily by removing the front part of the hair, and can express all kinds of rage.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/409715-5/P5246063.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=318365b5136048beecff58df08a32b47" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber" /></p> <p>The hands easily plug into the arms, and each also has a swivel joint at the wrist. There are hands that can grab the swords, and hands that just look cool. And as an added bonus, included is a holder for all the extra hands (like Microman figures come with).</p> <p>Both swords are intricately detailed, even with etched runes on the blades. Each blade slides nicely into the included sheath.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/409719-5/P5246067.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=318365b5136048beecff58df08a32b47" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber" /></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/409727-5/P5246075.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=318365b5136048beecff58df08a32b47" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber" /></p> <p>Saber is really constructed solidly, and all the joints are tight. They don’t click like the Revoltech ones do, but they don’t really need to. The way each joint is cut allows for a fantastic range of motion, especially in the knees and hips. Watch the video, you will see what I mean.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/409720-5/P5246068.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=318365b5136048beecff58df08a32b47" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber" /></p> <p>In addition, the armor of the figure is actually made out of several layers, and made out of different kinds of material. For example, the silver chest armor is actually a rubber-like material, and underneath it is a fully detailed and sculpted costume. The flowing skirt is a mixture of rubber and plastic, with the individual parts of the skirt being jointed independently.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/409722-5/P5246070.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=318365b5136048beecff58df08a32b47" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber" /></p> <p>The figure is just done right on so many levels.</p> <p>The stand is clear plastic with the figma logo embossed on the base. The jointed arm is secured by screws at the hinges, and connects to the back of the figure. It’s tight and solid, enabling a variety of poses.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/409728-5/P5246076.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=318365b5136048beecff58df08a32b47" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber" /></p> <p>But by far the coolest thing included with this toy is one of the simplest things. I’m surprised more people don’t do this, and I hope more follow suit.</p> <p>A plastic bag.</p> <p>Figma includes a plastic zip-lock bag with the Figma logo and a large white writable area on it. Toss the box, because all your parts now fit in here, and you can label it so you know which fists each one goes with. How cool is that?</p> <p>The Figma Saber figure is highly recommended. If you collect Revoltech figures, Moe figures, or just action figures in anime, you owe it to yourself to check it out. </p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/409718-5/P5246066.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=318365b5136048beecff58df08a32b47" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber" /></p> <p><a name="video"></a></p> <object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/Z4UDizqmDnc&amp;hl=en"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/Z4UDizqmDnc&amp;hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object></p> <p><br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.

There good, cheap, robot lovin’ fun. </p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin02.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402843-5/rin02.jpg" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin02" /><br /> </a> </p> <p>But Kaiyodo was not content to keep it to just robots and has launched the Fraulein line to encompass popular female anime characters. Since I’m not much of a fan of the series I passed on those but decided to give Rin Tohsaka from the animated series “Fate/stay night” a try.</p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin09.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402850-5/rin09.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin09" /><br /> </a> </p> <p>From the package: </p> <p>Fraulein Revoltech is an exciting new series of female action figures. It consists of new idea of figure system called “E.L.F.” producing beautiful body lines and motion as natural as real lives.</p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin00.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402841-5/rin00.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin00" /><br /> </a> </p> <p>So basically no matter how sophisticated the packaging is and no matter how high profile the line is, it’s a series of “girly” figures. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.</p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin01.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402842-5/rin01.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin01" /><br /> </a> </p> <p>This girly figure is Rin Tohsaka from the series Fate/stay night. Now I only recently watched a handful of episodes of the series so I can’t speak too much to it but essentially it centers on the coming “Holy Grail War” and the Magi involved in finding the Grail and winning the war. Each Mage conjures a servant to fight for them. Rin is not only a high school student but apparently a very powerful Mage.</p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin13.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402854-5/rin13.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin13" /><br /> </a> </p> <p>So with all that said, “How’s the figure?” Not bad. It’s very poseable with an excellent level of detail; I do find it odd that for all its poseability you can’t get the figure to go into a sitting position. Other than that, the sky is the limit as far as poses go. Her pigtails even have Revoltech joints in them. Before buying injectable steroids in the UK, you need to understand what they are. Most athletes report: Injectable steroids bought on <a href="http://roidsupplements.com/">roidsupplements.com</a> help you achieve the fastest results. Therefore, we can say that they are right. Injection ingredients are absorbed faster. That is why they are so popular among athletes. But, unfortunately, there is also a downside to the coin. While injectable steroids became popular, counterfeits began to appear.</p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin08.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402849-5/rin08.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin08" /><br /> </a> </p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin10.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402851-5/rin10.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin10" /><br /> </a> </p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin17.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402858-5/rin17.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin17" /><br /> </a> </p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin03.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402844-5/rin03.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin03" /><br /> </a> </p> <p>Since Rin is primarily a spell caster she doesn’t have a ton of accessories. The figure comes with a fantastic stand to pose the character flying/midair (which she does quite often in the first few episodes I saw), a sword and some alternate hands.</p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin12.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402853-5/rin12.jpg" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin12" /><br /> </a> </p> <p>Overall it’s more Revoltech goodness with no real surprises or disappointments for collectors of the line. With that said, I really don’t think this is a figure for non-Fate fans because as a “girly” figure (yes you can look up her skirt, yes she has panties on…) it’s pretty tame for those that collect those things and obviously Rin doesn’t transform into a giant robot or a jet I think it’s a pass for most Revoltech collectors. Fate fans however can and should buy Rin with confidence.</p> <p><a href="/gallery/v/Toys/Kaiyodo/Revoltech/TohsakaRin/rin16.jpg.html"></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/gallery/d/402857-5/rin16.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="rin16" /><br /> </a> </p> <p>Yep, I felt like a pervert for shooting this picture...</p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.

In the series, Saber is possessed by a spirit of pure evil and turned into Black Saber, or Saber Alter.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/84673-5/P7216467.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber Alter"/></p> <p> The figure is very similar to the <a href="http://www.iquantascores.com/node/1581">first version of Saber</a>, but I have to say I like this version much better. The styling is edgier and I like the overall dark appearance. Despite being the same character, this is an entirely new sculpt.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/84684-5/P7216480.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber Alter"/></p> <p> Saber Alter comes with two different swords.

To switch the headpiece, you actually pull the front part of her hair off and replace a larger section. It looks really great.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/84677-5/P7216472.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber Alter"/></p> <p> I can&rsquo;t decide whether or not I like the zombified look or the visor look better.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/84681-5/P7216476.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber Alter"/></p> <p> The larger feet make Saber Alter much easier to pose, and all the joints are tight and smooth.</p> <p> Saber Alter is not without its flaws. There is a bit of discoloration in the face near the nose which looks like a flawed paint application. You don&rsquo;t really see it with the visor off but it is a little disappointing. If you look at the <a href="http://www.hlj.com/product/KYD01103">promotional pics</a> you can see a second red vein on the face that goes up near the nose &ndash; mine has the faintest smudge at the bottom &ndash; indicating a flawed paint application. </p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/84680-5/P7216475.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber Alter"/></p> <p> I also wish there were a variety of hands &ndash; the only hands are the ones you see on the figure.</p> <p> Providing the paint issue is just on my sample and not widespread, Saber Alter is a great buy.

This line branches off from the original line by showcasing different styles of characters and different sculptors.</p> <p>Saber arrives courtesy of <a href="http://www.hlj.com/product/KYD01102">HobbyLink Japan</a>.</p> <p>This articulated figure comes from the Japanese video game &ldquo;<a href="http://www.typemoon.com/fate/">Fate/stay night</a> (&#12501;&#12455;&#12452;&#12488;&#65295;&#12473;&#12486;&#12452;&#12490;&#12452;&#12488;)&rdquo;. I&rsquo;ve never played this game, so I don&rsquo;t have the first clue as to what it is about. Even after reading the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fate/stay_night">Wikipedia entry</a>, I am still clueless. However, Saber is a fan favorite character, with legions of otaku in love with the character.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/78777-7/P5215218.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber"/></p> <p>The beautiful sculpt is provided by Tomohide &quot;eyewater&quot; Enoki. This makes Saber the first Revoltech figure NOT sculpted by Yamaguchi. The figure looks as if it just leapt off of the screen. The face is smooth and beautiful, while the armor looks worn like real metal.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/78772-7/P5215210.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber"/></p> <p>In keeping with the theme of the Revoltech series, the figure is incredibly articulated. When I first saw pictures of this toy, I saw that the elbow joints were not Revoltech joints. I was concerned that these 2G figures use fewer Revoltech joints. Thankfully this is not the case. Saber has 14 Revoltech joints and 20 points of articulation. The joints are hidden well so it still looks like a regular action figure. One of the innovative uses of the new double Revoltech joints can be seen on the waist skirts.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/78776-7/P5215217.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber"/></p> <p>Possibly another theme with the 2G line is that Saber comes with few accessories. Include are two swords and a display stand. One sword (Excalibur) is fully painted and the Caliburn sword is transparent. The hilts of the swords are long enough to be held by both hands.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/78778-7/P5215219.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber"/></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/78782-7/P5215226.jpg" width="466" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber"/></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/78779-7/P5215222.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber"/></p> <p>This is a really great action figure. It manages to be cute, but you don&rsquo;t have to feel like a perv buying it. Saber is available now at <a href="http://www.hlj.com/product/KYD01102">HobbyLink Japan</a>. Be aware that this figure costs a little bit more than the standard Revoltech figures, but for a figure of this quality it is worth it.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/78770-7/P5185156.jpg" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Saber"/><br /> <br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.
