King Arthur, the same character from Fate/stay night. Known as the King of Knights, she maintains a high code of honour. Though she and Kiritsugu are Servant and Master seeking the same ultimate goal of peace, their differing ideological perspectives result in a strained relationship where Kiritsugu does not directly acknowledge Saber.
tried to avoid Beach Queen figures most of the time, since they are pretty generic, just a body and a bikini. Although there are still some which are quite tempting, and one of them is the Saber (Fate/Zero)’s beach queen figure itself. Of cause, the temptation gets the better of me: I bought it, and she finally arrived after a month’s delay.
The box is tall, and perhaps a bit big despite the figure’s small stature. I’m not sure if it’s standard though since this is my first beach queen figure.
As you can see, she is based on this illustration, which the sculptors did quite a good job. The figure comes with a towel and a bottle, with the former detachable. She stands at around 15cm (should be higher with the stand), and is a bit bigger then standard figma figures.
Saber got long sexy legs, something hard to see in the anime as she rarely exposes them, and it is an interesting tidbits, as Saber’s height in the anime is only around 150cm! The tiny bits of details given to the figure is noteworthy, although hard to see
with my bad flashy camera skills, her skin, especially visible on her legs, has subtle red blushes on it, and with the beach-lookalike stand, it gives the impression that she had been exposed to the sunlight on a sandy beach for a long time.
Instead of going with a typical school swimsuit, they followed the illustration through and through, using a swimsuit with an unique design, which even looks like a race queen design too. There is an “S” on her, which probably indicates that she is Saber
, or a sadist. Also, her swimsuit is actually glittering!
Some slight pet peeves I have is that despite what the official images had shown, it’s actually slightly difficult to fit in the towel on her left arm without looking awkward. There is an opening in between the bundles of the towel, but it’s not easy to fit everything in; there’s always a slight opening hole which makes some of the photo awkward. If you pushed the towels more to the inside, then the rest of the towel hanging on the right side will be in another wrong, awkward direction.
The towel at times, is an annoyance during my photographing sessions and in my opinion, I think she actually looks better without it.
Saber Beach Queen figure is quite a decent figure to collect, and with a decent price too. If you’re trying to look for Beach Queen figures to collect, then this might be a good start for your endeavors.
