I love Rider. The only reason why I got into Fate/SN in the first place, the whole series became a huge snoozefest after her pre-mature demise. There also hasn’t been as many Rider figurines as the other lame girls, like Saber, Rin and Sakura. Caster’s sorely lacking as well but that’s none of my concern.
Hobby Japan is releasing a limited edition Rider 1/8 figurine in September. Scans courtesy of Kansaitei and friends of Hobbyhype forums. These guys are really quick with their scans. My own copy is only arriving in a few days.
This is by far, the best swimsuit Fate figurine I’ve ever seen. I’m not too sure about HJ’s track record in making mass-produced figurines but at least from the picture, it’s awesome. Standing at 21 cm, with super long hair and a Bellepheron surfboard, Rider’s clad in a black and purple sexy halter bikini. The price 4980 yen is deceptive. It’ll be marked up sky-high.
I think you’ll have to get a copy of Hobby Japan magazine, find and cut out the coupon inside, mail it to them and then pray that you get to be one of the lucky few picked to have the priviledge of purchasing it. I hate limited edition stuff. Anyway, these will typically go for 2 to 3 times the stated price out in the open market. In other words, give up.
- Maker: Hobby Japan
- Release Date: November?
- Material: PVC
- Price: 4980 yen (ALL LIES!!!)
- Height: 21 cm
- Scale: 1/8
Anyway, there are quite a few other Fate figurines, but not of particular interest. How many damn Sakura figurines are there??
The best of the bunch is Alter’s 1/6 swimsuit Saber. Forget the Clayz shinai Saber, if you want a swimsuit King Arthur, this one is THE buy. 24 cm, 5800 yen, October release.
Cute penguin, hot body.
Another Sakura, this time from GSC. Leeks… man. 1/6 scale at 29.5 cm, she costs 6,800 yen. Set for November.
In true Nadeshiko pose.
