Nendoroid and figma BRS

Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter

My recent favorites – Nendo and figma BRS figs! AmiAmi was pretty quick, I received my order 2 days after paying for it. I’ve been excited for the arrival of these figs especially the Nendoroid version and I finally received the figma last Friday and the Nendoroid yesterday. Why two separate packages you ask? Well, I’m trying to avoid big boxes since they might catch the attention of the customs and I don’t want BRS to take a detour to their office. I’d rather pay extra for shipping than pay them for random charges. It happened to me before so I’m just being careful with my EMS packages.

Let’s see some pictures of these cuties, shall we? Ali helped me with the photos. I didn’t actually get the effect that I wanted to get from this shoot because we still don’t have enough lighting but here you go.

One thing I noticed about this Nendoroid is it is made of a softer plastic. Compared to older Nendoroids, I think Black Rock Shooter’s face is a bit softer as well as the other parts like the arms and legs which makes it more flexible I guess. I accidentally dropped the hair piece twice but it didn’t break or anything considering it has thin parts. I also trimmed parts of the hair since it looked uneven to me, something like an excess sprue, so I used my Tamiya diamond file to fix it.

I really like the blue streaks on her hair. It even looks better when the light hits it. It’s actually easy to pose this Nendoroid and her parts fit nicely with each other.

Here she is sitting calmly on her cannon. Her scars appear a bit more red than her figma version.

I didn’t use the extra stand for the cannon because she can actually hold it with ease since it’s quite light. It’s really nice that I can recreate various fighting positions with this Nendo.

Here’s another angle of BRS holding the cannon.

Bandaged Nendo BRS. Lol. This one’s my favorite expression of the bunch. She’s actually displayed this way on my shelf right now. I bet it would be nice to get at least a couple more BRS Nendos so I can display her in various ways. ^^

Now here are some photos of figma Black Rock Shooter.

I think her face is looks gentler than the other BRS figs. I really like the blue flame on her eye, it looks like a pretty crystal. ^^ My only complaint with this figma is it’s kind of difficult to fit that stand on her back. I managed to put the stand but at first it’s a bit loose and I even scratched a portion of her jacket when I was trying to place it in. I’m sometimes clumsy with these things though, fortunately I haven’t broken anything yet. ^^;

That cannon is a little heavy so I really have to use the extra figma stand and holder. I’ve always admired figmas’ articulation and with BRS you can really recreate wonderful poses.

Since this figma also comes with chains, I tried to pose her like the first Black Rock Shooter fig that came out but I couldn’t get her arms to the correct position. ^^; There was even an angle that she looks like she’s scratching her head. Lol.

I forgot to take a photo of her sitting on her cannon, but here she is sitting on her box. Oh, speaking of the box, I like how they have better flaps now, I think it’s easier to open and less prone to dents.

Both Nendo and figma come with the 50-minute Original Animation BRS DVD.

I’m sure most of you are already enjoying your BRS figs. I think they’re pretty awesome. I would have gotten doubles or maybe even triples of these if I had the budget. ^^;

    Nice you got yours already! I have to ship SAL to dodge handling fees – sometimes. EMS has always resulted in a £13 charge on entry into the UK (excluding tax).

    Both versions look great. Looking at them both I can’t pick which is my favourite. The nendo is super cute, but the figma looks really cool.

    Does the DVD come with subtitles? (probably a dumb question)

    Can’t wait to get mine :D.

      £13 excluding tax? That’s kinda expensive.

      Yup they really look great and I think any collector would be really happy to have them.

      The DVD has various subtitles. Hope you get yours soon. ^^

    oh the temptation of getting multiples to form an army, i sure know that feeling lol

    1. xine says:

      Thanks! Glad you like the pics.

      Having a BRS army is super super cool, right? Too bad I don’t have the budget for that. ^^;

    akh, your figma photoshoot has “shot” me deeply…
    she is really cool.

    well, her nendoroid sure is cute, but I prefer her figma.

    1. xine says:

      Thank you! ^^

      Both versions are nice but if you really want to recreate action scenes, the figma will not disappoint.

    The scar on the nendoroid is a bit bright compared to others I’ve seen, I wonder why. I like how cute the nendoroid is xD. Nice to know that she’s not so fragile, even with the softer material.

  8. softz says:

    Nice photos there! I only ordered the nendoroid version of this. I don’t have much love for figma I guess.

  9. Nopy says:

    I prefer the nendoroid over the figma. BRS looks cute sitting on her canon like that.

    Gotta love BRS Nendo’s fail face.

  12. xine says:

    Thank you for all your comments. ^^

    @h4mster: I use a Nikon D60 with the kit lens. Haven’t had the chance to upgrade yet ^^; but I’m glad you like the photos.

    Agreed about the blue streaks in her hair. It holds light really beautifully.

    Anyways, I love that first figma shot with a sword. It’s gorgeous. It really looks like she’s lounging at you.
