View Full Version : New Volks Saber(?)

04-24-2009, 08:47 PM
From what I can tell reading the description via translator it's a 16-part kit with hair pieces that can easily be interchanged after assembly (source: http://www.volks.co.jp/jp/store/ct_figure.aspx) Also from the description it sounds like they're promoting kit building over simply just collecting them pre-made. ^_^

Well hopefully thats the case.. cause honestly. Not enough resin out there period. Though I won't compalin if they keep making Dollfies.

That's a nice looking kit. What anime is that from?

04-25-2009, 12:00 AM
Fate/ Stay Night etc...

Oh my gosh, she's gorgeous :o Is she available for online preorder? Does anyone know if Volks Japan will ship internationally, or will I have to use SMJ? I NEED this Saber, even though I already have too many XD

ah, I type before I think T_T it says she's sold out online there... but they might get more in

Really nice! Love those late kits from Volks!

that looks really cool. I wonder how they're going to do the interchangeable hair with out a huge seam in the hair. I'll just have to wait and see.

You can tell from the picture that the entire back half of the hair will fit snuggly in, but be able to be removed. I have a few things like this and they work great.

Volks japan does ship internationally.

04-25-2009, 01:21 PM
Volks won't ship resin kits overseas though.

I just verified.

04-25-2009, 06:43 PM
Really? Why will they ship other things but not resin kits?

Sigh. Guess I have to resort to SMJ and their fees.

It probably has something to do with licensing but hopefully they'll restock her soon. Saber kits always cost a ton on yahoo especially first releases:cry:

04-25-2009, 08:12 PM
I'm hoping since they're billing this as "Try GK" it won't be so limited as some of the recent volks GKs (1/4 Mikuru and Kanu comes to mind...). Even if I miss out on her initially maybe I'll have a chance at paying retail or thereabouts on YJA, if she's not too limited.

A second batch seems to have gone up for preorder ^_^


04-26-2009, 06:48 AM
I've had a look to see if HLJ provide her, but unfortunately they don't :(

Too bad because she's not that expensive ! This will make people to buy originals instead of recast :(

04-26-2009, 11:14 AM
Yeah, I checked HLJ and Hobby Search with no luck :( And I really don't want to go through SMJ's online shop ordering, it's so much more money. I think I'll wait for her to show up in auction and take my chances, and hope I'm not making the wrong decision XD

She's out in the wild now, looks like the first orders have been fulfilled ...

A 'fair' price if bid unchallenged at 11,000Y ....

I hope I get my preorder soon then ^^ they said June, but didn't specify much past that.

06-03-2009, 09:12 AM
The second run should be shipped later this month.

And good news for those that missed the first two batches... they've added a third run and are already accepting orders :perfict:

06-03-2009, 09:30 AM
Wow, if they have a third run than I won't worry so much about not getting my preorder fulfilled. Yay for Volks! :D

Wish they'd make this many of their Chorosuke kits!
