Ever since I was a little kid, I have been watching Tokusatsu shows such as Ultraman, Daitenjin 17, Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, it was part of my youth and I still appreciate this genre until this very day. With the few years I have been in this hobby, I have developed a thing for group photo such as my August Four Riders. Fast forward to last September of last year when Volks announced the Type Moon X Dollfie Dream project, the thought had occurred to me that I have finally managed to assemble my very own Saber Sentai in Dollfie Dream form!
In the following months before the arrival of the new Sabers, it had become clear to me that the setup I had been using to take Dollfie Dream photo was woefully inadequate to handle the addition of Saber Nero and Saber Alter II into the team. So, right around the end of last year, I began to take action to clear out some old figures that I no longer want to keep, upgraded many of the furniture and display cabinets that I have been using in an attempt to optimize my room toward a Dollfie Dream studio. It wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago did I finally figured out a plan the new platform for large group photo. There are still a lot of work left to be done but I am quite happy with the progress I have made so far. So, without further ado, please allow me to introduce my very own Sehai Sentai Saber Rangers! Obviously, this is a parody playing off the team of Sabers seeking the Holy Grails XD.
It was one of my main goals to take a group photo with all the Sabers decking out their original gear, but I have been postponing this until I am confident that I am doing the best I can. While I still have a lot to learn and improve on but I am relatively happy with the result this time. So, let’s go around and introduce each of the sentai members, shall we?
First we have their leader Blue Ranger – Saber (wearing her hair down). Traditionally, Red Ranger has almost always been the leader of a Super Sentai, but I have been watching Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger which introduced the concept of each of the team members gaining and mastering the power of previous rangers (and changing their color at the same time)… so in the end, it doesn’t matter if Red ranger isn’t the leader anymore XDc
Then we our princess of the group, White Ranger Saber Lily ♥♥♥
Black Ranger Saber Alter~ Don’t underestimate this bokken XDc
Obviously, our main focus this time has got to be the additional of the two new members~
Red Ranger, the newly arrived Saber Nero~
And last but not least….
Purple Ranger Saber Alter II~ Some of you might wonder, how come I am counting Saber Alter II like a separate team member? Well if you look closely their hair styles are slightly different near the front bang and well, let just say Alter II is from α World Line so they are almost the same but not quite XD.
Now, you may wonder, just what can the Saber Rangers do after being adopted by me? The answer is very simple XDc
Dress up in meido costume and pose in front of camera XDc
Together, they are called Meido Sentai Saber Dollfie Dream!
Ahhh, finally I got done with this~ A huge load off my chest since I have been wanting to get this post out of the way first as there are plenty of other side photo project I have been working on are all waiting on the wings…. such as a “character cosplay” :3 On the other hand, we are literally one day away from the highly anticipated DP 27 and the release of Shining Blade Dollfie Dream, hopefully I will be able to secure a DD Sakuya as my next Dollfie Dream daughter XD
