Figure News: Figma Black*Gold Saw up for preorder
26 Oct 2010 21:18:25
It seems that Good Smile Company remains unfazed by the shelfwarming of Nendoroid Black*Rock Shooter - with Figma Dead Master now shipping, B*RS Anime Ver. shipping next month, and the Dead Master Nendoroid and PVC in December, the B*RS flood shows no sign of stopping any time soon. But now, one of the less-prominent of huke's creations is getting her day in the spotlight, with the announcement of Figma Black*Gold Saw!
It's like... if Jack Skellington and Lady Gaga teamed up to design her outfit.
It wouldn't be a B*RS figure without an oversized weapon, so Black*Gold Saw includes the King Saw (which isn't actually gold). The saw looks pretty beaten up, with a surface mottled with scratches.
*inset joke about silly JRPG weapons here*
Like the upcoming KOS-MOS, B*GS is going to have separately-jointed hair. If it's anything like Figma Tsuruya-san, expect it to be sharp.
Seriously! You can get puncture wounds on that hair!
There's also the usual assortment of faces, although B*GS doesn't seem like the expressive type. You get the indifferent glare, a slightly haughty expression, and a delightful homicidal grin.
It's up to you whether B*GS is a friend or foe of our gun-toting pseudo-loli friend, although MF seems fonder of casting her as the latter...
Violence escalates when Black*Rock Shooter cracks one Final Fantasy joke too many.
Black*Gold Saw ships in February. Anyone going to pre-order her, or are they going to wait for other huke designs to get Figmas? I'd love one of STR or Geshumaru, personally...
