Review: Figma Rider

So here we are today with another special review of a figure… This time I’m being assisted by Sumi-tan and Dead-chan. Without further delay, here we go. The review of Figma Rider, from Fate Stay/Night

Personally i like the box design as it has that insignia at the front window, it’s not a nuisance either since she doesn’t have that much to show anyway. But all in all i love her box’s art and color scheme…

Review Figma Rider

She comes with:

  • A pair of stake-like weapons
  • 1 Alternate faceplate
  • 5 Pairs of extra hands
  • 1 Figma stand set

Yes, she is that scarce in terms of accessories, but this IS Rider we’re talking about, she doesn’t have many to begin with. Let’s see if her fun factor can make this lack of accessory permissible.

Review Figma Rider

… *tacticalfacepalm.jpg* I guess she IS a servant after all… So about Rider, i love her allover. i like her clean, simple yet sexy figure. And although there are no small details worth noticing besides her visors and 3 layered hair. She looks awesome. Posability? Let’s check it out.

Review Figma Rider

Exactly, how CAN she do that? Simple, most of her outfit parts are made of soft pvc and that she has a triple layered hair. The top most part of her hair is soft pvc, the middle is hard pvc but has a swivel joint so it can be moved up and down to a degree, the bottom most is soft pvc. This triple layer setup made it possible for her to do that extra low pose of hers…

But that’s not all, in addition to most of the commonly placed joints having little to no hindrance, she has a twist joint right where her stockings and her thigh connects. This allows her to do poses like the one on the bottom left picture… Just be careful when turning it for the first time, some people put too much force and ended up breaking her twist joint altogether.

Review Figma Rider

Yes, her visors are actually detachable and can be placed on her alternate faceplate. Ladies and gentlemen, this is where i start to cringe… It’s probably me just getting a factory defect of some sorts but damn… the front hair piece peg is LOOSE… sometimes it fell off easily along with her faceplate without me even trying… Maybe it’s just me getting bad luck with a bad production case. I hope you guys don’t get the same problem.

Review Figma Rider

And now her weapons, since FS/N I already loved it. Why? Because it’s a stake, not a dagger. Why a stake? You can slash like mad with a dagger and one out of 10 swings it will land a hit. But it takes precision and skill to land that stake right where it would be most lethal.

Anyway this seems alright so I’ll just let the girls take it from here. It’s almost the Lunar New Year so i gotta prep the resto up for customers.

I’ll be back in a jiffy while the girls finish up.

  1. Nice. Rider is one of the most expensive figmas i’ve ever found. It was not previously but now it is very rare, I can’t even get it at a cheaper price. Same goes to Saber Lily. Damn I wish I had those two.

    1. true about the prices for both of them. I have Rider and got her at retail price luckily but no such luck for Saer Lily….and boy she is really fantastic. However I do have normal Saber Armour and she is an awesome Figma so it’s not all bad…=3

  2. Oh my… how the tables has turned. Guessed those didn’t know that servants are pretty strong. πŸ˜„

    Loose front hair piece? Reminds me of my friend’s figma Fate, as her front hair tends to drop at times…
    If I ever get those issues, I just put several layers of of modeling cement to make them tighter.

  3. hahaha like how it all played out in the end. No worries, my Rider’s front piece is loose as well. Since it’s really heavy with the 2 front long pieces so every time you keep moving her arms and touch those hair pieces, it’s bound to get loose. Just use sticky tack if you want a temporary fix.

    i really like Rider’s weapons though, those chains look mean~
