Yo, good news, found the website to order her

As you can see the price tag is actually not that bad. 3 versions: (and I don't know what kind of rate exchange people were using but apparently it was out of whack, I just converted them myself).
480,000 yen (about $5400): for the "top" model (ajustable/poseable), I think this one come with her blue battle dress. (don't know if this include the uniform as well, I think it should)
380,000 yen (about $4300): for the "top" model (ajudstable/poseable), cheaper because this one come with the school uniform.
298,900 yen (about $3500): for a "cheap" model (fixed with limited movement, I guess you can only adjust the hard-joint on this one). Also come with the school uniform.
The dress and swords can be bought separetaly, the dress looks like a high-quality multipieces dress and not one of the cheap cost play. And for your collector freak, the sword is all yours for about $1500.
Still expensive, but not bad, not bad at all. At least ... not as bad as we made out to be.

I would probably be willing to pay around 4K USD for such RL-looking Saber. But I am sure they are more expensive than that.
So allanh ... she's all yours, since you can always get the dress&sword later. Will you be a man and take Saber's hand?
