This time it’s classed as the ‘Anime’ version. Well guess what? Most Black Rock Shooters have been involved in anime somehow. Sigh… this one is based on the design from the short 8 episode anime, which has some cool fight scenes and doesn’t make much sense plot wise. Typical Black Rock Shooter really. Can I be bothered doing this again?
Yes, yes I can.
Why? I don’t know. This version of BRS isn’t all that different to the other really. In fact it is the closest to the first BRS. A little too close for my liking to be honest.
Box. Yep seen one of them before. The biggest difference for this BRS is she comes with a hood accessory.
One thing with mine is that jacket plastic feels a bit sticky. Dust seems to love it. Almost as if the paint hadn’t dried yet or the plastic is just weird.
The main difference between this one and the others is a new coat, different hair style, no scars (probably easier to animate without that extra detail), new boots and possibly whiter skin.
Once again the face is nice and she comes with an extra one. Thing that I don’t like though is the second face doesn’t really look all the different, or emotive either.
She comes with an extra fringe piece that has the flame and it is translucent and nice although mine doesn’t quite fit on the face all that well.
She also has longer hair than she has had before. It is attached via a hinged joint, and can be flicked around. It also has a blue tint to it.
The body is nicely sculpted and I am not sure whether it’s juts the new shoes, but it feels to me that this is a lankier design to BRS.
As usual, nicely sculpted stomach. The coat is nice and long, with very soft plastic at the hips, allowing the bottom of the coat (which is more stiff plastic joined by hinge joints) a variety of movement. The requisite star on the back of the coat is larger. Her bust is small but this time is covered by a more robust bikini top. Huzzah!
The main ‘catch’ for this version of BRS was quite an exciting one for me.
I guess this is good if you want emo/sinister BRS.
Still, I like the hood, maybe not as much as I first thought however.
Once again she has a Black rock Sword which is really nicely sculpted. Her fingers and hands are rather thin so it can be a bit loose sometimes.
And of course she comes with her Black Rock Cannon. Which is a new design as well. It’s a bit shorter than usual but it still comes with a stand for its very own self.
The tripod things open up, but they don’t fold all the way back like they did in the anime. It looks pretty cool nonetheless. I do like that the inside of the barrel is painted. At least with this design there is an esier way of attaching the hand.
You take off the cover, attach the hand and reattach the cover, then slap the hand on the arm. Easy right?
I do like it, although posing was a bit tricky at first. But I did get itor the swing of things pretty soon. Oddly enough, once I took the hood off and put the normal head back on, I felt the posing options change. I think because more movement became available to the head, it just opened up the pose ‘feeling.’
After a while though, I found that the hood works well with the sword.
So I see there is potential there
Finally I have a shot of all my BRSs next to each other.
L-R, Beast, Original, Anime and 2035 (game version). Just missing one… Dammit. It’ an expensive one too…
And so there we have it, yet another figma version of Black Rock Shooter. Am I getting tired of them? Possibly, I mean really the standard look is much the same, but I will admit that I can’t resist a girl with a big gun!
And they don’t get much bigger than Black Rock Shooter’s!
