New Preorders (AKA; A tale of an axe, a DVD, and a puddle of urine)

New Preorders (AKA; A tale of an axe, a DVD, and a puddle of urine)
31 Jul 2010 03:05:05

Well, well, well. Seems like today was quite a fruitful day for the folks at GSC and Kaiyodo, because a bunch of preorders have opened up. First off, we have a very cool bundle that WON'T cost you an arm and a leg for once!



What is this bundle, you ask? Well, it contains the following items:
-Nendoroid Petits of Black*Rock Shooter and Dead Master
-Blu-ray Disc and DVD of the OVA, both with subtitles in seven languages (and region-free DVD)
-Stop-motion B*RS short film, animated by the same team behind The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline
-36-page artbook of huke's work
-Storyboard collection

Overall, while I was pretty disappointed by the B*RS OVA, this really does look like too good of a deal to pass up for only 3500 yen (at Amiami). I love huke's art and character designs, and an artbook of his work would be awesome. I'm also a huge fan of stop-motion animation, and I have a ton of respect for the animators of Burton's films. So this bundle really seems worth it for the extras alone - besides, I can sell the DVD to recoup some of the money. BTW, the Blu-ray is Region 1 (works on Japanese and US Blu-ray players and PS3s).


Also, these things are sickeningly adorable.

As if the previous barrage of cuteness wasn't enough, the Nendoroid of Yuki Nagato from the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya also went up for pre-order.


All together now: HNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGG

She comes with a number of accessories, and her jacket and glasses are removable.



Did I mention that it's adorable?

But if you prefer something a little more... sultry in your Haruhi figures, the Figma of Adult Mikuru is now available.



She also comes with a desk, as well as extra faces.


"Classified information."

And her clothes are made of stretchy rubber, allowing for all manner of hilarious headswaps.


I give it three days after release until someone puts Kyon's head on this.

But if that's too tame for you, there's also a new Queen's Blade (or Gate, to be precise) Revoltech: Alice the Gatekeeper.


Look on her forehead. This is LOLI-BATMAN.



She comes with an impressive number of accessories, including - oh god, is that...?



...Yup, it is. Ladies and gentlemen, you are looking at the first Revoltech to come with a puddle of pee. What's next - Revoltech guro?

...Oh, wait.


Revoltech Jason Voorhees is due out in October, and comes with a number of accessories for all your mutilating needs.


Now you can have a Figma angry mob!

And now for something completely different.



You know those laser tank things that constantly show up in Godzilla movies? Well, Kaiyodo apparently thought it would be a great idea to make a Revoltech of one. Something tells me that this is gonna be a shelfwarmer.

...So, yeah. Anything you guys are ordering? I'm probably gonna grab Jason just for his accessories, and the B*RS bundle is so tempting...

Haha, I love your sense of humor in this post! The puddle of pee is rather... disturbing.

I'll definitely be getting the BRS set. The extras are too good to pass up! Yuki is tempting as well, even though I'm not really familiar with the Haruhi series. She's cute, and comes with some good parts (I love swapping parts~~).

Oh, really? That's a little disappointing, but the making-of feature will be nice - I'm a huge, huge fan of the stop-motion medium.

As for the release date, I'm fine with it myself - Figma Love Machine (quite possibly the most impressive-looking Figma I've ever seen) comes out in December, so I'll probably just throw the bundle in with that order.

Adult Mikuru, please^^
Not only she is the part of haruhi figma line I collect, but also she's just great! I wonder if she has that heart-shaped mole on her breast. I'm glad I passed on adult Mikuru scaled PVC^^
I like this tread of MF to add big accessories to haruhi figmas.

Nendo YUki... don't know yet o_O I just not crazy about nendos... not anymore. Maybe I'll wait for that scaled Yuki from Kyoani.

Accessories of Jason Voorhees are tempting!. Imagin Azunyan or Yui with them!! But I guess its a little bit too much.

Thanks for the post!
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

I think Mikuru does have the mole (you can see it in the last picture of her), but I don't think they'll be able to make it heart-shaped, due to it being such a tiny detail. The Waitress Mikuru had the mole, but it wasn't heart-shaped. I guess the big accessories are to convince the people who were on the fence about even more Haruhi Figmas - kind of like how so many people were hesitant about Figma Mari, only to go "OMGMUSTGET" when they saw the entry plug seat accessory.

I have to agree with you about Yuki. She's absolutely adorable, but Nendos are so brutal on the wallet... I might wait to see if they do a Disappearance Petit set.

Do you find Jason too much in terms of price, or the guro-factor? If it's the price, the previous Sci-Fi Revoltechs have rarely sold out - the only one to sell out was the Alien, and they did a rerelease soon after. So you can probably wait for one of the big sites to do a sale without fear of him selling out. As for the guro-factor, he does come with a non-bloody head and hockey mask, so you can just display him with those parts.

I'm going to bet Mikuru after the rush, want her more for accessories and body swap than anything else. Also i'd be lying if i said I didn't order the BD BRS for the nendos.

Haha, I have to agree with you there - I have a soft spot for Petit Nendoroids. Of course, the stop-motion short, artbook, and storyboards only serve to justify the price, and I'll treat the BD and DVD like free bonuses.

IIRC, most of the other QB Revoltechs have them, too.

Already pre-ordered Jason, Mikuru and Yuki. (Waiting for HLJ to start pre orders for Alice)

Not sure about the BRS set. I'm going to get the regular nendoroids and it probably would be best to wait for the inevitable super ultimate deluxe version of the dvd/ bd.

If you're already getting the regular Nendoroids, then my advice would be to just wait for the second and third OVAs to come out - they'll probably do a "super-mega-ultimate-deluxe-complete-collection-turbo" box set.
