As much as the Black Rock Shooter OVA disappointed me I still love Huke's characters they just have so much personalty that they don't need an anime to interesting. Dead Master is presented as the main villain of the OVA. The former best friend of Black Rock Shooter who attempts to defeat her and save her from the darkness that consumes her. (or something like that)
She comes in a larger sized Figma box it seems a bit big for the amount of stuff she comes with but it shows them off well. I particularity love the art they used for her distage insert it's an image of a cracking skull.
The sculpting on Dead Master is pretty much perfect it captures the charter perfectly and despite being mostly unpainted the sculpt still has enough detail to look fine.
There is not much panted parts but what is panted is well done. She is mostly just cast in the appropriate colors in particular her wings and horns are made of clear plastic it has a nice effect. The only problem with the paint is her skin around her collar and back they are panted over black plastic and the color just looks slightly off.
She has all of the articulation you would expect from a Figma with nothing to get in the way. Her head in particular has a great range of motion. However her wists are a bit floppy when holding her scythe in one hand, but she holds it completely fine with both hands.
She doesn't seem to come with that much stuff but maybe it's because you end up using most of them.
She has her scythe witch looks great and she holds it fairly well. And of course she has her skulls who's jaws can open and close, they are supported in the air with poles (that can be plugged in to a distage) they do a descent enough job but if you want them to look more dynamic you'll need some spare Figma stand arms. She also has an extra face four extra sets of hands and the standard Figma stand, hand rack and bag.
At 3000 ¥ she is a bit more expensive then the average Figma but her accessories are big enough and essential enough to justify it.
It's strange I never particularly cared for Dead Master but her Figma has one me over. Despite her small flaws she is an excellent figure and in My opinion much better than the Black Rock Shooter Figma.
As usual any thoughts or suggestions on the review are welcome.
