Pre-Order Saber, Rin, and Sakura Now! Or Pre-Order all three!
Welcome to the Solaris Blog! ヾ( ʚ̴̶̷ .̫ ʚ̴̶̷ )ﾉ”
Can you believe it’s already been over 15 years since the release of Fate/Stay Night? Me neither!!! Time flies when you’re having fun, and it flies in light years if you’re getting lost in the many paths of fate.
To commemorate the good times we’ve had so far, Good Smile Company is releasing the three main Fate heroines all dressed in gowns, walking down ivory steps! Thank you GSC for this secret ending, where we can choose to have all of them! (づ໐௰໐)づ
These stunning figures are part of the Fate 15th Celebration Project, of which this absolute unit of a figure is also a part. I think it’s fair to call it a “small statue” at this point, since it stands at approximately 100 cm.
We were impressed with how much room it took in our warehouse, but it was an amazing piece! We don’t often get to see Shirou in figure format, so having both master and servant in an epic action scene is definitely special. And it went just as soon as it arrived, as it usually is with these unique and exclusive figures. If you don’t want to miss out on those and many other great deals and releases, sign up for our newsletter!
Saber, Rin, and Sakura, however, are much more elegant and at a much more manageable size at 1/7 scale. Their dresses derive from illustrations by Takashi Takeuchi himself, made for the celebration event.
The King of Knights looks as beautiful as a blushing bride, complete with a bouquet of white and blue flowers! Is this what she looked like on her coronation day, I wonder?
The black accents on her white dress and the bright expression are actually the theme of Saber Lily. Freshly crowned but still a novice, this is Arturia before countless battles hardened and scarred her body. Though this is not the Saber we first met and fell in love with in 2004 in the game (or in 2006 with the anime), it is a nod to how the Fate franchise evolved and became this giant we know today! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
A silky black ribbon trains down her skirt. The harsh contrast of pure white and such deep darkness evokes the shadows in Saber’s heart, which surface when she’s corrupted by the Grail.
While Saber goes back in time to her youthful days, Rin leaps ahead to her adult years, and shows off a more mature side. It is a little odd to see Rin without her twintails, but also very pleasant. You don’t need to show your spiciness with your hairstyle when your dress is the Holy Grail itself! The chosen of the Unlimited Blade Works route wears a luxurious red fabric that clings to her body and cascades down from her waist in bold pleats.
There is a sense of calculated beauty in her outfit, which reflects her own personality. She has a carefully thought-out plan which is executed organically! The lining of her dress is violet and slightly similar to Sakura’s palette. It’s her own way of showing that despite all the years and the tragic family events, onee-san has always kept her in her thoughts!
Speaking of the devil, here comes Sakura! Because being last does not mean being the least.
The protagonist of the Heaven’s Feel route strides down the steps in an impressive violet gown. The color and the lightness of the fabric give it a mystical look, like mana flows. Not wanting to be outdone by her sister, she rocks a deep cut bodycon and a choker that enhance her upper body attributes. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
In her hands she has a bouquet of roses, the noble flower that represents the Tohsaka family. While Rin carries the blood-red flowers, Sakura opted for pale blooms, colors as gentle as her heart. She really takes after her mother... (´௰`✿)
She wears a semi-translucent shawl around her shoulders, which partly covers her bare back. Modest where needed, sensual where appropriate, and natural elegance throughout are the trademarks of this kind heroine!
All three figures come on a base that clips together to form a wide landing. You can order them separately, though as you may have noticed, the display can look a little incomplete if you do. They also come in a set, which is also at a better price point per figure!
The stars of this celebration will be arriving at our store in November 2021, so make sure to pre-order them soon!
Until next time! ヾ(＾∇＾)
