Image Review

  •  The front of the box(this isn't even the shiniest side). I know it's hard to see but the top right section of the box you should be able to see a TM(type moon) Sticker. MOST authentic TM products have this. Do be careful, fake SaDers are everywhere.

  •  The bottom, thee shiniest.

Final Thoughts/Review:

  • Sculpt: 10/10
  • Painting: 10/10
  • Base: 9/10
  • Packaging: 9/10
  • Enjoyment: 10/10
  • Total Score: 48/50
Jesus, this may be the highest score I've given yet. Let me just start by saying I'm in love with this form of saber. Not so much her Alter & Lily forms. I like every part of this fig, especially the base. The iron rod is actually sturdy & the material(saber included) feel really well crafted. If your a Saber fanboy/girl, or just love good looking armor figures,this is you god.

As always, thank you guys.

I see your reviews and then I always feel depressed because I have no money. Thanks for posting so many images, maybe if I stare at them long enough I can pretend I actually own it.

Both the figure and the review was excellent. You take a lot of pictures. And yeah the detail of the armour on the upclose camera shot was really good! thanks :)
