Hi everyone, today I am going to review the Saver Kimono Dress Ver. 1/7 Scale by Alter. I literally just received the figure at noon today and unboxed her immediately. This review will be very picture heavy, bear with me. I took all the photos with my camera, so pardon some of the bad quality pictures. Now, lets get on with the review!

I purchased the figure from TOM for around $169 USD. The figure was shipped a week ago from California, and I just received the figure in New York. The wait was almost 2 months after the initial Japanese release, but I don't mind since I saved some money on shipping.

Here is the package it arrived in. A pretty big box for a figure.

I am very happy with how TOM shipped the figure. TOM packed the figure very securely. There was a lot of packaging material to say the least.

The figure box was wrapped in light paper, and I just love ripping them off. Feels like opening a present.

Here are some pictures of the box for those who love figure boxes. The box is very beautiful with reflective (holographic) shine on the prints all over.
Here are the dimensions of the box:
Length: 25 cm
Width: 23 cm
Height: 37 cm

Here is a picture of inside the box. Pretty cool design, nothing much to say about it.

The figure is packed very nicely with no wasted space.

Base:
The base is a white fluffy base with minimal pattern designs on the side. There is a switch for the light up feature and a little gel indent where the sword will be placed. Note the base requires 2 AAA batteries to light up. The diameter is approximately 21 cm for anyone curious.

Alter did not skip out on any details at all! The figure overall has a pearl finish to it, with some matte paint on the black and red part of the figure. The printed patterns have a metallic outline to them. They are very cleanly printed! The red part of the dress also has printed patterns on them, even though we will not see that part of the figure when displayed. I am very impressed by the attention to detail.

Light up feature:

Flaws:
There seems to be a little scrape on the back of my figure on the matte, black paint. The flaw is very small and can't really be seen unless you almost put your eye on the figure lol.

Here is a picture of the flaw looking at the figure overall, can't really be seen unless you're deliberately looking for it.

The back of the dress also does not completely touch the base. I don't mind it, since I won't be looking at the back of the figure that much anyway.

Here are some size comparisons with other 1/7 scales.

Final thoughts:
I am very happy with my purchase and I believe she is worth every penny I paid for her. Despite the small flaw, this is an amazing figure. I've owned quite a few Alter figures and Alter has disappointed me in the past with QC issues, glad this figure came out very nicely.

Lovely photos! I don't collect Fate figures and I didn't even know the base was a light-up one until I read your review. Such a beautiful figure, the black ribbon cloth is especially gorgeous!
