Black Rock Shooter arrived yesterday in a huge box. This is the figure I am most excited about and after months of delay I’m so happy that she’s finally here. I was going somewhere yesterday and I knew I’d be late if I open her box at once. But I already made the decision that she’d take the nicest spot on our display shelf.
What I can’t decide on is what I like most about this figure because every detail is just amazing.
Her beautiful melancholic eyes added a lot of charm which makes her really interesting to look at. I love how they seem to glow when light hits them. Her separate hairpiece with the blue flame is a nice touch too.
The black chain that comes with her is a bit tricky to slide inside her hand. It’s good that her hands are made of a softer rubber so you can open it up and put the chains, but I was just as careful because I might scratch or deform it. She comes with an instruction sheet on how you can make her hold the chains but you can find other ways to tie it around her just like what Persocom did.
Some people are put off by her scars but I think it adds more character. It’s very red but it doesn’t bother me.
I really like her how her hair and her black coat just flow. The paint on the coat may not be perfect but every detail is superb! The folds may collect a lot of dust though. ^^; I love her hair. The various lovely shades of blue made it even more amazing. I hope I can color my own hair this way.
Black Rock Shooter’s face looks delicately pretty but her accessories gave her a bit more of an attitude. The cannon looks heavy and a bit worn which is very nice.
You can see how beautifully the base crumbles which contributes to the figure’s overall visual appeal. Boots are nice too. BRS surely is one of the best figures I’ve ever seen.
I’ve never taken this many photos of one figure but Black Rock Shooter is definitely worth the effort. I played with black and white backgrounds and blue foil used a reflector. ^^ I hope you enjoy viewing her pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.
