Revoltech: SABER

You must have realised that this Revoltech from Kaiyodo lacked a serial number. That is because SABER is the first G2 Revoltech series. It stands at a 140mm, a larger scale than the earlier Revoltechs. Thereis also re-design in the joint system, such that the vital joints such as the elbows or joints that are exposed, are replaced and modified to another type that will not come loose easily and also look smoother. It had been sitting on the shelf in its lovely square box until I finally decided to take it out for its photo shoot before I get the new Saber Alter, next week. After clearing Saber for shoot, I still have 1997 Movie Editions EVA-00, EVA-MP and EVA-MP Special. This shoot is unique from the rest, because I have applied the use of a new setup and techniques such that PP work is minimum.

Saber, Shirō's Servant,is an agile but powerful warrior. Loyal, independent, and reserved, Saber acts coldly but is actually suppressing her emotions to focus on her goals. Her class is considered the "Most Outstanding", with excellent ratings in all categories. Since her Master cannot effectively provide her with Mana, she minimizes her activity to preserve what she has. Saber is frustrated by Shirō's "protective" tendencies, believing his erratic and reckless behavior will jeopardize her chances of winning the Holy Grail War.
