Altria Arrives

I haven't done an entry in a while. Not much has been happening with me the past few months on the figure front, and work is... well, work is work.

But today I have a new goodie, and I'd like to show it off. I know very, very little about the Fate franchise, but I've taken a liking to some of the Saber incarnations. Foremost among those is Saber Lily. And when I learned of the pre-order for ITEM #536185 I placed my order in ASAP. And then, as these things work, I waited for months and months.

Now she's here. And it comes at a convenient time where I'm not stressed out, I have some energy, and I want to take pictures. My gain is now your loss, dear reader, as I now subject you to the torture of my photography.

Muahahahaha!

Those are the ones everyone wants to see, right? The box and Saber still securely in her packaging? Well, that was quick. We're all done here. Time to go and watch some Netflix.

Screw that. Let's get her out here to play!

Altria: "TA DA! Here I am!"

Me: "So you are. Welcome to my desktop. Your arrival has been foretold."

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Gabriel1502602153.jpeg

Altria: "Cool! I can't wait to get to know your other figmas."

Me: "Well, about that. The girls you'll be hanging out with... They're all armed and skilled at combat."

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Gabriel1502602155.jpeg

Altria: "I anticipated that. That's why I brought this. It's a figma slaying knife. It's plus 3 against figmas!"

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Gabriel1502602157.jpeg

Altria: "Here, let me show you."

Altria: "Fabulous magical powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said..."

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Gabriel1502602199.jpeg

Altria: "By the power of Camelot."

Me: "So you have a weapon, do you know how to use it?"

Altria: "Damn right I do. Check out these moves!"

(Note: Yeah, I messed up on her wrist here. My bad.)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Gabriel1502602205.jpeg

Me: "You're pretty good."

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Gabriel1502602207.jpeg

Altria: "You really think so?"

Me: "Yeah. I think you'll fit in fine."

Altria: "Awesome. I know I'm going to have great fun here."

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Gabriel1502602236.jpeg

Me: "You're certainly optimistic."

Altria: "That's because the only two faceplates I have are unreasonably cheerful."

Me: "Well, there is that. I guess we should wrap this up. Pose pretty for the camera for the last couple of shots."

Altria: "OK."

OK, I'm sure someone will complain that I mangled her personality or whatever. Regardless of that, she's a pretty cool figma. Her faceplate and bangs fall off at the hint of a breeze though.

Now for the wait for ITEM #548710

First note. I first learned about replacing figma heads by taking off the faceplate and then removing the back head assembly from the peg in the neck. That works for Ranko, but not for Saber. Saber doesn't have a peg into the head, she has a ball joint in the head, and it's very secure. Instead, I had to slide the peg from each body's neck, effectively doing a full head and neck swap instead of leaving the neck installed as I had previously learned to do it.
Beyond that, no problem. In terms of head size, I thought the swap worked extremely well. Ranko's skin is noticably paler though. Ranko uses a one or two shade lighter skin. Saber's collar somewhat camoflages this. It depends on how much the head swapped figure is scrutinized.
Ranko's faceplates won't work on Saber. As in, they flat out won't fit, and the reverse is also true.

Thank you for doing this and for including details! I headswap by taking off the faceplate too since I worry I might put too much pressure on the fringe and faceplate. Then the back hair with the neck peg. You're brave for leaving the neck peg on but then again I never thought of doing it that way- another thing learned. Yes the ratio seem fine and the skintone difference isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I guess I will keep her in mind.

Could you headswap her with Ranko ITEM #193726? I really want a different outfit for Ranko, but sadly, I thought of this combo just pass deadline. That and I wasn't sure if their skintone and head-body ratio matched..

Your blog, your rules. Anyway, it was pretty entertaining.

Damn that's the stingiest figma I've seen in terms of additional props

"Me: "You're certainly optimistic."

Altria: "That's because the only two faceplates I have are unreasonably cheerful."
