It’s been a long time since I have taken photos of my Gathering collection, perhaps I am just lazy taking them out from my dust free display. Anyway, with the new camera and everything, I have got to take this chance to do more testing on the camera and get myself familiar with it as soon as possible. Saber Lily arrived at a perfect time since I haven’t found a place to store her yet XD.
As usual with the Gathering series, you can expect high level of details and finishes, let just say their finishes is on par if not better than some of the leading PVC manufacturers. I have always been a fan of the painted resin figures because of their wider selection. And with their choice station, customer like me has some input as to what they want to work on next! I am putting my chips in a Gathering release of 1/4 Kos-mos version 4 from C3 X Hobby 2009. There is no a chance that I will ever have enough skills to build that kit myself, so I am waiting for a Gathering release for sure. I have been keeping the resolution the same as 4288 X 2828 on most of these shots, clicking on it should bring up the full size image from my flickr account.
Different lighting effect, there are so many different settings for me to choose from, just white balances alone is already driving me crazy lol. It’s good to be able to experiment with different settings though.
I kind of like the warm lighting effect here.
Details on the base.
Zooming in closer to the face and the chest area. That little chest plate you see here is actually magnetically attached to her body, but the fitting between the chest plate and her right arm is so tight that it’s really not feasible to remove her afterward. Do pay attention to this part if you are assembling her together, because I had to struggle a bit to get her chest plate and her right arm to fit together.
Most of the photos here are taken with Aperture priority with the flash set on auto mode because I don’t want to lose focus on the figure. I am still working on some continuous lighting setup but with the space I have to work with, doesn’t look very likely at this moment.
I like the flowing dress!
Zooming in for better details of her back.
And of course, the obligatory pantsu shot!
This version of the White princess Saber Lily Gathering version is already sold out at the E2046 website, but it looks like the black version is still available for pre-order. In fact, this version of Saber Lily is done so well that it was featured in one of the modeling magazine in Hong Kong recently. While I don’t necessarily think this Saber Lily Gathering version is better or worst than the yet to be seen GSC Saber Lily or the Alter version, but I think she deserves a place in my collection nonetheless.
