Nendo Saber Lily fails?

Nendo Saber Lily fails?
07 Nov 2009 11:42:45

My Nendo Saber Lily arrived at Moscow a long while ago, but it was yesterday, when I finally managed to capture her. Well, surprisingly I'm not going to make any declarations of love here. Everybody knows she is fascinating! She really is. But...



Did you know that she has a factory defect? At least, it seems so. First, I thought I was going crazy. Then I studied a couple of blogs and found other people have the same problem. Look at her right hand, the one which holds the sword. Its black ribbon is on the wrong side! oO



Draw attention to the GSC pic. There it's on the proper side. Huh!



Ah, can't say that it looks annoying, but it's still a defect, you know. I'm also a bit confused with 2 fist parts which come with her as well. They are supposed to hold her sword too, aren't they? But I'm afraid to pull her original hands out in order to check. If someone knows how to handle it, please explain me!


Left to right: a defect hand, a sheath hand, a clenched fist hand and 2 'happy' hands. Plus 2 strange fists.


Ah... can't do without love :) Seiba, I love you anyway!

I've also seen the defect in a post in figure.fm...
well, since you can switch her hands anyway, maybe you can use one of the other arms instead of the defective one?

The defect is quite a bummer though... although the defect found on Nendoroid Yoko is more disappointing for me because the ponytail has a HUGE crack (well it looks like a seamline but it actually isn't). The good thing is, it's not that evident.

I doubt that GSC would fix the defect since there are so many nendo Saber Lilies out there already.

Actually she has 2 right arms: one holds the sword and the other is... well, just an ordinary one. The problem is that her only extras are swords and sheaths, so we need this defective arm :(

Btw, are you still waiting for yours? I saw it on your 'shelf' :)

Ouch. That is a bummer :< Oh well. I'm sure I'll love Saber Lily even with all her quirks anyway

Yes, I'm still waiting for mine. ^^; Unfortunately, the local stores here often gets delays on getting the new figures... so I'll get them at least a month after they get released... but for popular figures like Saber Lily... they get delayed even longer ^^; The wait is kinda painful, but it gives me more time to save up on them and I at least know that I already have one reserved ^^

I find it surprising they didn't notice a defect like that. That particular arm was also very difficult to wiggle into the socket of Saber's arm. I was scared I'd end up snapping a piece off, eek! Still, she is very adorable, and I have her displayed at the front of my tiny Nendoroid collection!
Oh Japan, why you gotta make everything so darn expensive? ; n;

Yeah-yeah-yeah, same here! To tell the truth she's my first nendo (I'm in love with 1/8 girls) - so I was a bit (just a bit) disappointed at fist. Have you managed to understand what 2 separate fists are for?

Actually, I figured out the pose I wanted her in and didn't bother playing around with the other parts yet. I get too excited when I get my figures! I end up putting them on my bookcase as soon as I can to bathe in their glow, haha. Now I'm curious about the other fists, so I'll check it out after I make dinner.

By the way, I meant "difficult to wiggle into the socket of Saber's shoulder." I hate when I make mistakes like that...Is there an edit button?

I see. You should give us a pic of her in that 'glowing' pose :)

I'm sorry, comments editor mode is unavailable - but we are going to add this feature pretty soon. Please don't worry. Otherwise all non-native speakers should kill themselves straight away.

Hey, I just got done playing with my Saber and discovered all her hands are interchangeable. It was really hard to tell! I thought I was actually breaking off her hand at first, but you just need to slowly twist them off. Now we can switch the "defective" arm (which isn't really defective, it's used if she has her arm in the air) for the other and use those other fists.

Unfortunately, I don't own a camera yet, so I can't provide pictures at the moment. ]:
