Good Smile Company 1/8 Black★Rock Shooter Black Blade Ver. was released last June 2010 in accordance with the high merchandise demand of by then a very popular character (no series/OVA yet) Black★Rock Shooter. Regarded by many as a “poor man’s B★RS” and deemed inferior compared to the first B★RS figure, the Original Version also from the same company, this relatively cheap figure is probably one of the most flawless PVC figures that GSC ever produced.
Being a pettanko myself, B★RS easily became one of my most favorite and worshipped 2D characters in my history of being an anime/manga otaku. I started collecting figures last February 2010 and during that time I was against spending for this hobby for more than P3000 of value. I pre-ordered this figure for the purpose of selling her eventually for a little profit, but when I got my hands on her I knew that I’d regret it if I were to let her go. She then became my first pre-ordered scale figure in my collection and even though I bought her on a standard price back then (expensive compared to the bargain offers nowadays), I’m really glad to have owned her for a long time now :D
You can check out the rest of the photos to marvel at her beauty (and her flatness). It’s been a year since I opened and displayed her and she’s still as pale and gorgeous as when I first got her.
