Figma Dead Master Release Info

Figma Dead Master Release Info
20 Jul 2010 21:26:40

Well, the Figma Blog updated again today, showing off one of the more highly-anticipated Figmas. This time, it's Dead Master!



Inb4 someone makes a comment about the hole in her butt.

Whereas Black*Rock Shooter has her comically oversized cannon, Dead Master has an oversized scythe.


I assure you, it's only for harvesting corn.

She also comes with a tongue-out face that could be interpreted as sadistic, teasing, or you-gonna-get-raped.


Or that she just has a really delicious finger.

Another trademark of Dead Master is her pair of skulls, which come with little stands of their own.


Something tells me that these two are gonna be the token bumbling-henchman characters in the OVA.

Here's an image of Dead Master dueling with her rival/sister/I-dunno-what:



Preorders for Dead Master are gonna open JAPAN TIME on the 22nd, which means late tomorrow night for the US. Is anyone else gonna get her? I'm not a huge fan of B*RS (she looks a bit like they tried too hard to make her look badass), but I'm really digging the classy yet sadistic-looking design of Dead Master. She comes out in late October, the same time as Mari, Luka and King Kazma.


She's a Killer Queen; Gunpowder, Gelatine; Dynamite with a laser beam; Guaranteed to blow your mind - Anytime~

UPDATE: She's up at all the usual places, with no indication of selling out anytime soon. Amiami has her cheapest (about 2200Y), with HS in second (about 2400Y).

I think that the reason all of these Figmas are coming out in October is because of the factory switch - they're probably in the process as we speak, so they weren't able to finish the July Figmas in time (hence their delay to August). Since they know that Luka, Mari, and Dead Master are all gonna have a ton of demand, they're probably making them in one big batch to satisfy said demand. As for King Kazma, they probably just chose to throw him in the October run for the hell of it.

Same here - while I'm a bit skeptical about B*RS (both the character and the OVA as a whole), I really love this girl's design. Besides, I need more villains in my collection (although Revoltech's got quite a few lined up, like Jason, a Queen Alien, and a Predator).

I'm not sure about the B*RS anime either. I like their designs just not sure how well the characters will work in an anime.

Well, it seems like the entire point of it was to animate a bunch of cool fight scenes while throwing plot and character-development to the winds - kinda like a dystopian, gothic-lolita Sengoku Basara. I'm going into it with low expectations, so it'll hopefully at least be a fun ride.

Ever since I heard about the whole "Dead Master = B*RS's former best friend" plotline, I've been dreading the fact that it'll probably be one of those "I know you're in there somewhere" type things...

Me too - I have four Figmas lined up for October (Mari, Luka, King Kazma, and now this), and it's very likely that two of the four Sci-Fi Revoltechs I want most (T-Rex, Jason, Alien Queen, Predator) will be released then, too.

I refrained from BRS, under the same reasons you did.
I'm a bit skeptical about anime and the character. I view her as a form without any filling, which basically I don't like.

DM has more life in her, more, you know, character. But, anyway, my preorder list is jam-packed, so I'll try not to buy her also. At least now.
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

I think that with Max Factory's new policies, you shouldn't have any trouble finding her until a couple of months after release, anyways. So if you decide you want her later, there should be enough of them in the wild for you to grab one.

Basically, in the past, Max Factory would decide how many of a Figma they would make beforehand, and allow that many preorder slots. Once those preorder slots were all filled, you'd be out of luck until they decided to make more (opening up new slots). However, under this new plan, they're going to base production on the number of preorders received, rather than the other way around. This means that everyone who wants one can get one, but it also means that there's a higher chance of delays (because an unexpectedly high number of preorders, like how B*RS is the highest-selling Figma of all time, means that they have to make an unexpectedly high number of figures), and that there's more of a gap between preorders opening and release date. The Figmas under this plan include:

-Mio (July release)
-Azusa
-Black*Rock Shooter
-Little Haruhi
-Dead Master
-Luka
-King Kazma
-Mari
