I was supposed to post this on Monday, but I got distracted by a bunch of other things that I was super excited about.
Somewhere in my Twitter feed I did not see that the Black Rock Shooter figma and Nendoroids were released this week. If you’re an avid Nendoroid/figma/figure collector this is not news to you, because obviously you’ve been stalking these adorable-slash-uber-sexy figures since the mere mention of them a few months ago (I don’t remember when, because I was stalking other things).
My interest was also not piqued until I finally saw the OVA at the beginning of this month.
I didn’t start collecting figma/figure/Nendoroids… until the end of last year and bought 3 Death Note Petit Nendoroids and a Ryuk Nendoroid.
Then I bought the entire CLAMP chess set at Comic-Con this year. To someone who is not familiar with these figures you may wonder why I’d bother spending money on these things when I should just spend this money on alcohol or a good noraebang session with my friends–but a good figma is a piece of art. I didn’t realize this until I got this Chun Li figure at Comic-Con… this picture does not do it justice, but the painting and sculpting are flawless. It’s pretty amazing these are mass-produced, considering the level of detail given to each piece.
Now if you ask me which figma I prefer–the Dead Master or the BR*S one, I personally prefer the Dead Master one. I guess it could be because I’m currently working on the cosplay of DM right now though. But if I had the money I would get both–I mean… BR*S’s gun is fucking badass!!
And don’t forget Black Gold Saw will be released later this year, the bustalicious version of Black Rock Shooter with a massive knife. I think I kind of want this one too. But now that I look at my display space I don’t really have much of that either.
