FuRyu (FGO): Miyamato Musashi/Saber

Updated: May 17, 2019

Another #FuRyu in my collection and another #Fate Grand Order hottie, no less! With the Fate Series not exactly shy with their gender bending ways, the legendary Samurai/Ronin, Miyamato Musashi, gets the gender swap treatment and so here we are a with a lovely female to replace the (most likely) grungy and less eye pleasing male version. So without saying any more, let's just dive right it to my review on the FuRyu Miyamato Musashi!

While I most often get the best handling of my packages from Amazon, this time around, there are a few more dents and scrapes on Musashi's box than I would like to see. The other annoying thing is that the top of the box, something I use for my photograph, has a barcode sticker that takes away the aesthetics. I resorted to zooming in on the series name and the class of the character to get the header pic so if it's not consistent with the other #FuRyu reviews that's why. Now aside from the box being mistreated, the figurine inside is just fine. Covered in bubble wrap and placed stratgically inside, Musashi was not damage nor were her accessories. Though having a fancy box isn't something I'm opposed to. Much like previous FuRyu I own, this box has its own flare but not overbearing with designs. It stays true to the design of the FATE theme and it also has some homage to the ambiance of Saber Musashi's lineage. All in all, the box serves the purpose and its pretty. That's all I can really ask for in figurine box. Oh, I didn't take a picture of the box to show it. I'm sure there are no major complaints when it comes to that. This is always about the statues and action figures, isn't it? ON a different tangent, I have yet to really review an action figure/statue that really compels me to talk about it like a #HotToy action figure!

Now there are some assembly required with Musashi--very simple ones and it involves just placing her katanas and sheathed on their respected places. The sheathed blade that Musashi isn't holding gave me some small problems when I was putting it in, but eventually I was able to put it in its place. All in all, they look gorgeous.
