Max Factory will be releasing the ex:ride Spride.05 Saber Motored Cuirassier ( セイバー・モータード・キュイラッシェ), a non-scale bike figure from the light novel and anime Fate/Zero (which, as most of you will know, is a prequel to Fate/Stay Night). The bike is around 220mm long and will be priced at 4,743 yen.
The figure will join the ex:ride figma vehicle series as a replica of the bike that Saber rides in the Fate/Zero anime. The bike has been carefully painted by Max Factory to give it a realistic metal appearance as far as possible. However, Saber is not included with the bike figure.
Fate/Zero is set 10 years prior to the events of Fate/Stay Night. The story features the events of the 4th Holy Grail War in Fuyuki City, a competition to obtain the power of the Holy Grail occurs between seven magi who summon seven Heroic Spirits to compete for it. Saber is one of the spirits who were summoned to compete for Kiritsugu. Believing that her leadership has resulted in the downfall of Britian, she seeks the Grail hoping to find a more suitable candidate as her replacement.
The figure will be released in October 2012 and can be pre-ordered through CDjapan.
