Kara no Kyoukai Mujun Rasen and Saber by Gift

I'm over with the classes, and now I have holiday until the beginning of the next academic year (in April).

Wednesday I received an Amazon box containing Kara no Kyoukai Mujun Rasen Limited Edition DVD and 1/8 Saber figure by Gift.

Kara no Kyoukai Mujun Rasen Limited Edition DVD is like the rest of the Limited Edition DVD sets, nothing new here. I will see it once I'm finished with this entry.
The following movie, Boukyaku Rokuon, is still airing in a Tokyo theater, so the DVD release would be in June or July.

1/8 Saber figure is sculpted by Toda Satoshi from circle Yume No Kagutsuchino Koukoku.
This is the first figure released by Gift, but is distribuited by Good Smile Company.

The detail in the armor is impresive, but like his previous 1/8 Saber Alter by Solid Theater, the realistic face is a bit off...

Luckily, they included an extra face by Kuramoto Ikuma from circle Millimeter Modeling. Is not perfect but is better than the original:

The best part is the detailed armor:

And now a few full body pics. I used the inner cover of the box as a background to give a profesional feel:

Supposedly, Solid Theather was going to release a Dark Sakura by the same sculptor, but now that Toda Satoshi is under the umbrella of Gift (pretty much is the main person there), the fate of Dark Sakura is unclear. Here is the prototype (photo taken from AkibaBlog):
