DMM.com is selling life-size Saber figurines for those of you out there with money flowing out of your water taps! (Such as, oh I don’t know… this guy?) This is your chance to one-up all those self-proclaimed hardcore F/SN fanboys fapping to Saber x Rin doujin porn on 4chan! (hint: not me)
This custom-made Saber from Paper Moon was on display during the recent Wonder Festival 2006 Summer. Now she can be yours for the price of just 480,000 yen (tax included) or your first born! That’s about 4000 USD (the yen, not the baby).
The figurine will be on sale exclusively through the DMM.com website. She comes in three versions: the movable joints in dress and leg armour version, the movable joints in casual clothing version and the fixed-pose soft material in casual clothing version.
The leg joints are quite visible (and ugly) if you pull down the socks (gee, why would anyone ever do that?), which is why a jointless version made of more flexible material is offered. The jointed versions are made with FRP (fibre-reinforced plastic) while the softer version is made from polyurethane rubber. The legging armour is FRP with a metallic coating.
Saber measures 154cm tall and has a shoe-size of 23.5cm. All three versions cost the same. Replicas of Excailbur and Caliburn measuring 117cm long are included. You can also purchase each sword separately for 150,000 yen.
I wonder what’s the market size in Japan for this. Damn rich Japanese otaku.
Visit Moeyo! (they were loaned a set for photo-taking and other lewd purposes) for more pictures.
