Figure News: A NEW CHALLENGER APPROACHES

Figure News: A NEW CHALLENGER APPROACHES
14 Dec 2010 21:55:59

I figured that while many people are excited for Revoltech Gunbuster, I should also post something for people who like things a little more... moe. So, have this Hobby Japan scan that got leaked onto 2ch.



All that was given was the MSRP (2500Y, same as her other-world counterpart). Anyway, maybe Comiket will yield more information on miss Kuroi here.

I have no idea if I'll get her. But does this mean that their not making a strength? It doesn't make sense that they would skip her. (other than the fact she only had a few seconds of screen time.)

I think it's fairly safe to say that given the cash-cow nature of the Black*Rock Shooter characters, a Figma Strength is inevitable. However, a second and third OVA have been greenlighted, so they're probably saving Strength to release closer to the second OVA. My guess is that Mato will be in May or June, followed by Yomi in September or October, and Strength in early 2012 along with the second OVA.

I'm unsure on her as well. I may cave and get the figma, but I don't really dig the nendo. I think maybe the face is to busy or something? Since she's rather plain I'll just go ahead and skip the nendo. But... I'm pretty sure I'd cave for the Yomi figma, she's just too pretty. >.>;

Maybe they're just waiting for Strength until the next OVA? She should get more screentime then and in their mind sell better? I honestly expected Kuroi and Yomi much sooner. At least before I would have expect Black Gold Saw anyhow (she didn't really get all that much more screentime Strength did she?).

Schoolgirls are quick cookie-cutter projects for Max Factory, but Strength would take more time what with those crazy arms and all. XD I know GSC at least has plans for a Strength nendo since the commissioned the CHANxCO image. How could they do a nendo and not a figma? (yes, this is what I tell myself for reassurance. XD)

Edit: WAIT!

From Tsukiboard:
If my eyes don't deceive me, you can add the next entry to the db....
<unreadabletinykanji>4の少女ストレングスのfigmaも<unreadabletinykanji>
roughly translates to "also figma of 4th girl Strength"

Aaaaaand I was just about to post about that. I noticed it while scanning the moonrunes for ストレンス.

If I'm buying Figma Mato, I'll have to get Yomi with her as well. I'm hoping for the lesser known B*RS characters to be made into Figmas. Black★Matagi comes to mind...
