Ladies of Simon, have I got a treat for you. There’s a whole lot of hot ladies gracing the pages here, but today we are going to even out the score a little bit, maybe even a lot of bit. Right whatever may I introduce you to Fate Zero’s Lancer!
Lancer has a gorgeous face. His brow is slightly creased and his eyes look insanely sad. It fits really well for his character I think a somber expression fits him nicely. His mouth is set in a grim line. It really looks fantastic. They did a great job applying the decals, from his sorrowful brown eyes to his charm point.
Lancer’s collar is painted really well the lines are crisp and clear and look very nice.
I wish I knew exactly how to type out the sound effect for a wolf whistle. Lancer has a gorgeous chest, I mean hot damn look at those pectorals. ME-YOW! And the open sides of the outfit, good god man, how much hotter can that get? Because spandex doesn’t show off enough on it’s one an unobstructed view of his sides is an unfair assault. And the black hunk underneath that I’m pretty sure is there to draw your eyes deliberately to his pecs is possibly one of the most fantastic things I’ve ever seen.
He has an amazingly flat belly, I swear this guy cannot have body fat. His abs are amazing. I mean wham bam thank you ma’am amazing. You just don’t see an absolutely stunning six pack like this everyday. It’s honestly fairly difficult to notice the paint flaws here because he himself is so damn distracting.
Set tightly against his hips is a leather…..something. Honestly I have no idea what this thing is, but it looks superb. The deep set indents on it speak highly of leather work, and the shading is very nice. The buckles look awesome, the they are painted really well. I’m loving it!
Oh my! My oh my! So that’s why they call him Lancer 😉 Arai Kyousuke, the hero of female collector’s everywhere knows how to sculpt a man. The skillful sculpts that they erect are positively kingly. If this is what the future of male figures has in store for us, then I’m totally game. Like oh my god man!
Because it needed to get better the leather piece goes down his hips and crosses tightly over his majestic thighs. The long sinewy leg muscle are gorgeously defined.
His boots are a nice shade of dark grey with gorgeous black swirls curling down the length of his legs. The paint is really nice.
Of course in conjunction with the rest of his outfit even his boots are skin tight. You can see the clearly defined knee caps, which is always a really nice touch.
He has fantastic calves that have very nice specification. The shape is great and fits the rest of his body type perfectly.
The only part of this outfit that doesn’t completely conform to his skin is over his feet. Which is a little bit awkward. However honestly seeing his toes through the spandex would probably be even more odd.
Lancer has a charming head of hair, it’s swept back in a manner that kind of makes me think of Danny Zuko (there goes all his credibility). I do however love the waves and natural curls in his locks. It’s mega cute. He has a satisfactory profile, probably the best I’ve seen so far on a Fate figure.
Lancer has a very husky frame, his arms gorgeous beyond all reason. His shoulders look like they could have been sculpted by Michelangelo.
Lancer’s biceps are strong and show off his brawny physique quite nicely!
His braces have the same design as his boots, it’s a little sad though the paint job here is a little bit off.
Like the rest of his body Lancer has fabulously sculpted hands. The knuckles are really awesome and I love the bone definition.
This is how the design on the boots actually looks from a head on view.
God those are some immaculate legs.
I wish the soles of his boots weren’t so flat, but it doesn’t look half bad. It just feels a little off.
Right so in viewing Lancer’s second spear we see the end is tipped in blue, while the rest of it is a deep crimson. It’s shiny which just adds to the overall appeal.
I should have seen it coming that his long hard red lance would be ribbed……you know for her enjoyment.
The blade has deep engravings in it, that bewitch the eye.
The blade ends in in a sharp tip. I love this weapon.
His hair is amazing, I love how the seams are hidden in his quoft and crispy locks. They look just a little bit messy, but not undignified.
I also love how his third lance rests right under the hair at the nape of his neck.
This one has engraved writing on it, which I have no idea what it says (clueless) but it does look amazing.
The tip of this spear is dyed in a fantastic crimson, not like dried blood, but more like light glinting off the metal. I’m loving it.
Looking like he fell out of Final Fantasy 7 Lancer is sporting one shoulder pad that is a shade darker then the rest of his outfit. The paint here has a nice glossy finish. It looks really nice.
His other hand grips his lance in a rather contracted fist. You can see the tenseness in the lines of his hand. It’s pretty impressive. also the scaly looking handguard is pretty stylin.
The paint at the end of the golden lance is a little bit off, not entirely happy here.
Lord almighty I feel my temperature rising…. those back muscles are wonderful. The sculpt is bloody freaking brilliant!
And his build narrows rather nicely down at his waist, showing off his fantastic body really well.
Lancer has what is quite possibly the most godly butt a male figure has ever had. I mean we are talking scrum-diddly-umptious. This isn’t quite like Amy’s ghetto booty or anything but, holy moly I love this sculptor!
His sleeve, for some reason he didn’t cut the side out of this half of his outfit, actually has wrinkles in it. Hmmm what do you know.
His other arm isn’t obstructed by stupid things like clothing though. At least down to the bicep, so we get a fantastic view of athletic shoulders.
His elbows curve ever so slightly. I love that they went with a matte finish for his boots and bracers. It looks a lot more dignified then gloss would have, and it would draw your eyes way more then I would have been content with. There are so many other things I would rather look at on this figure.
His hands are really nice, I adore his nails. He seriously looks like he just got a manicure. The shape of each finger is really nice though I do wish he were gripping his lance a little bit tighter.
Those thigh straps have got to be killer when actually moving, but I’ll be damned if they don’t look fantastic, and maybe draw out a little of bdsm fantasy in my happy little fujoshi head. Don’t look at me.
I’m especially fond of how his hair goes back behind his ears, like it was just tucked back. It’s so cute. I’m also pretty fond of his robust jawline. It reminds me of his amazingly husky voice…..
His bicep is seriously bulging against his sleeve.
This bracer is actually looser then the other one. I didn’t notice that till now (mega distracted). It looks really nice with the rest of his wardrobe, I’m very fond of it, but seriously there is nothing symmetrical about this costume at all.
The guard on his hand is actually painted with the same gloss finish as his shoulder pad. It looks great and isn’t overly distracting.
Like the other hand this one is really well sculpted. I seriously love his nails, and think the definition against his palm is really well done.
Overall this is a fabulously sculpted figure, there are a few minor paint flaws, but nothing that can’t be overlooked. His body is glorious from sad puppy dog eyes, all the way down to his god rod, and even lower yet to his gorgeously sculpted legs Lancer is a masterpiece of a sculpt.
I’m strangely less satisfied with his happy expression. I think it looks a little bit creepy actually. Maybe because his mouth has very little definition to it. As full and delicious as his lips look I would have thought they would have looked dazzling pulled into a smile, but I don’t really dig it. My Lancer is going to stay pouty me thinks.
This was not another excuse to stare mesmerized at his chest I promise. Anyway his alternate arm is straight down, the muscular structure still looks really good, but the pose just doesn’t fit as well.
I think this hand is clutching the hard shaft of his spear even tighter. Yet again the details on his hands are really nice. Definitely the hands of a lover not a fighter.
Or maybe if both eyes were open, but I don’t know something about this whole head just feels off to me….
There’s that one in it’s completion!
Lancer’s base is a large summoning circle. There are runes going along the outer edge, and a nice emblazoned symbol right at the center.
His box is a brilliant shade of blue, I love the spears crossing each other on the left side. It looks fantastic.
On the back of the box we see the different posing options. It’s pretty awesome. Also the tree set in the background is a mega cool touch.
Worth every cent
The pile of fan service that keeps on giving
I didn’t buy him on release
