Black Rock Shooter is here!

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.

    This figure is really impressive. She has a style really different from others. In spite of his appearance “loli”, scars give her an appearance different. Eyes, and flame are particularly original. And the base, really worked. I like very much this figure which waits for me at my companion’s house (I should be able to unpack her Tuesday or Wednesday). I am impatience to make a review! Thank for these pictures ^^

      Everything about this figure is pretty! Did you also order the black blade version? It’s good that you have BRS too, I think most figure collectors will be happy to have her.

        No I did not pre-order the new version which I find less impressive (the base is more basic, the weapon is less impressive and I prefer BRS with her jacket). But the figure is less expensive, what is considerable for collectionnors ^^

    Sorry to visit only now….. My RSS didn’t update immediately and i don’t know really why … :/

    I was so impatient to read a new review from you. Your first photos picked up my interest a lot already.
    I got to say you succeeded well the shooting of BRS. One of the beautifulest review i’ve seen so far ;) Congrats!

    Unfortunately i didn’t ordered BRS because initially, it doesn’t suit my taste by the fact she’s so thin. But know i really regret.
    She’s simply gorgeous. Her scars don’t bother me at all. But it’s mainly her hairs and jacket who’re the most successful details.

      Hi Lyli.
      Wow, thank you so much for the kind words, I’m happy you like my post about BRS and her photos too.

      Yeah, Black Rock Shooter is really thin, like a twig but she’s beautiful nonetheless. ^^

      Well maybe there’s still a chance that you’ll get her too. The Black Blade version is also nice, I guess it’s a simpler version but still pretty.

      1. Lylibellule says:

        Since i’m exigent, i’ll try to get this version as soon it’s possible, because Black Blade is a bit to simple. ^^

  4. It seems it’s unanimous. Everyone likes this figure ^^. I didn’t order her but perhaps will get the blade version. I like the price of it much more xD

    Glad you like her and thanks for sharing the pics ^^.

    1. xine says:

      Yeah, it’s very easy to like her. ^^

      The blade version is cheaper, but it’s also very nice. I hope there will be other figures as beautiful as BRS. ^^
