While typing this, I’m actually eating a peanut butter sandwich. Then I got reminded of a short conversation with my dad.
Me: (spreading a lot of peanut butter on the bread)
Dad: Is that even edible? (referring to the amount of peanut butter I was spreading on my bread)
And at that moment I gave him the kind of look, as if I heard the most ridiculous thing in the world. Then I walked away.
YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH PEANUT BUTTER.
Back the the topic that is actually related to the title, I finally collected my parcel today. (much excites)
When I opened the box, ta-dah! Got greeted with this beauty right there.
This is the size comparison of Saber’s box compared to an average sized nendoroid.
Here are the items in the box~ The Hulkbuster keyring is actually pretty heavy and the quality seems really nice. Gift for my loveeee ♡ The Stormtrooper is actually my brother’s order so I haven’t unboxed it. Super super cute though, would have loved to have a few of them plus Vader but they’re too expensive :c
Last, but definitely the figure I’m most excited about is Saber! As some of you may (or may not) know, I’m a huge fan of Saber; mainly Arturia, but Nero is also amazing! Another thing that got me so excited is that, this is my first figure from ALTER and also a 1/6 scale figure too; as most of my figures are the average 1/8 and some 1/10 ones.
I actually took out some of the other Saber figures I own to compare the sizes, so you can tell how much of a difference a 1/6 scale is compared to the others.
Kneeling down, she’s about as tall as a 1/8 scale figure of Saber Lily!
I really love how well done her back is as you can see in the left photo on the bottom row. The bikini strap on her body is really close to real life. ALTER did an amazing job sculpting the body tones and whatnot. (Sorry for the inconsistent colors, I took them all on my phone)
Her front and her back is very alluring. My friend Balance actually made me realize how soft and smooth the figure’s skin is, as he pointed out on his other ALTER figure. So I compared the feel to Ryuko (PHAT) and also Satsuki (Goodsmile Company). They all look really smooth but damn, ALTER’s skin game is so strong. I’m not even kidding when I say her skin feels really velvety, as if there’s also a layer of powder on top of it. People with figures by ALTER, is your figure as smooth too? ww
I’m finally done with my photo spam. It’s been so long since I updated my blog again. So yayyyy. I’m cutting down a lot on figures and sadly, I had to cancel one of the Ryuko figures as well. I wish I could bring Saber to the beach and shoot her there, but I wouldn’t want to get dirt on her =w= oh wells. I’ll try to take some photos of the Stormtrooper if I unbox it sometime soon~
