For those who don’t know, I’m a big Saber fan and I wanted to do this “Saber VS” review for a long time. Since we don’t have many figure news this week, I finally have time to set them up and do this review.
June 21, 2009: Article updated
These are the four Saber action figures that I have. They are (from left to right):
- Max Factory figma002 Saber Armor Ver. (2,667 yen)

This is the Part 1 of this “Saber VS” review. Let’s look at the GSC Nendoroid Lazy Saber first. =]
Oops, I have to go now. I’m posting these photos first. I’ll come back tonight and finish the writing part. =P

This is one of the earliest Nendoroid from GSC. She didn’t come with many accessories. Back then the 4,000 yen price tag in the year of 2006 is really expensive for a figure like this (but it’s really not worth it IMO =P ). She isn’t as cute as the current Nendoroids, and her face isn’t exchangeable with others. But I LOVE HER! =D
Her head is REALLY heavy and the stand can’t hold her body weight at all. =/
Her arms can move back and fore, but other than that, there is not much you can do about them.
As “Observer Extraordinaire” said, she is surprisingly poseable.
In order to ride the lion, she need to change to another skirt.
“Here comes the Lazy Saber!” =D
