Our club anniversary is drawing near and every year on the third Saturday of January, Western Anime Video Explosion hosts a 10 hour long show, sometimes there are games to be played and prizes to be won. This afternoon (WordPress runs on a different time, so this happened on the afternoon of the 20th), the current club president and I went to the only anime store in town to pick up prizes. It’s my second time going to the store, though I wasn’t very helpful at picking out prizes (I suggested getting a Miku plushie, but I’m probably the only few in the club that knows who she is).
It’s my second time visiting that store, during my first I found nothing of interest. This time they’ve got several figures, all for decent price due to the fact that I’m the only active figure collector in town. But no, I didn’t buy any (and no, there were no Saber figures), I did come back with something else though.

As luck would have it I spotted the post the moment it came out. But yeah, we who call ourselves dedicated Saber fanboys (and girls) will now be put forever to shame thanks to this dude.
This guy has every single Saber PVC figure ever released (to my knowledge, that is every single one), along with duplicate of others which bear slightly different features depending on the accessory (the Solid Theater Saber Alter and Gift Saber).
Seeing as the game was released when I was 14, there was no way I could have collected to this guy’s number. With the dollfies now on the lines of several times my credit card limit, there’s no way I could afford them (and I wouldn’t do it for myself, if I had a girlfriend who’s close to me I might buy one for her to take care of). Plus, if I WERE able to actually have this collection, I’d be disowned instantly because my parents would reason that I’m well enough to live on my own (or at least pay my own tuition, housing and food…yeah, be on my own).
Looking at that guy’s collection, I counted 13 figures that are part of my collection. I could also name the makers of 80% of the figures (it’s the small ones that I can’t recognize). How many can you name?
The dude is also missing the 1:1 figure/doll by Papermoon.

We interrupt your boxing day budget planning for another intrution on your well balanced figure get list.
Remember that uncoloured Saber figure we saw during WonFes earlier this year? Well, the production plans are currently underway and we now have a coloured picture of the prototype.

Yeah, things are slowly arriving. This package came from a store that I’m buying from for the first time. BigPfeiffer is a manga store (that sell figures and other stuff as well) stationed in Halifax. Because the store is Canadian, one must factor in the conversion rate between CAD and Yen (right now it’s 1 CAD to 85 yen). On top of that, they do flat rate shipping of 7.5 CAD per order. That’s pretty good considering the size of this thing.
The only problem is that, as the store is based in North America, things get here slower, and there’s also the slight chance that we don’t get enough of said product. This package was actually overdue, not because of the post office or the store. The (one of the) receptionist of my residence building didn’t give me the notice of when the package arrived. I ended up talking way into getting her to check the packages for me, and, as luck would have it, it was there.

With the prototype showcased at Wonder Festival, the fully painted version of the 1/6 Saber Alter maid figure (made by Alter, which make the whole matter even more confusing) was displayed at Chara Hobby hobby.
Incase you didn’t figure it out already, this is Saber Alter (note the lack of ahoge, ligher shade of hair and amber coloured eyes) in a maid outfit. Just like the previous 1/6 Saber Maid (GSC’s is 1/8 and I believe Clayz’s is 1/7), Alter is the company behind this figure.

Yesterday, I atteneded the second Pandatr0nics party. As most of you know, my camera’s battery charger is dead and I sent it to the NY Nikon branch for replacement. Therefore, I took no pictures during the event.
On a second note, Rin just came back from Japan recently, and he was also at the event. This means, I managed to pick up the stuff he bought for me during his trip!

Some figures are meant to be photographed outside, the 1/8 scale Saber by Gift is one of them. The weather has been messing with me all week which has really delayed my shoot for this figure. After all the storm clouds have either emptied themselves or have gone away, I pulled out my bike (which I didn’t ride for over a year) and took Saber out for a shoot!
