BLACK★ROCK SHOOTER Black blade ver.
Posted by meronpan on July 5, 2010
Finally! Meant to have this review out a lot earlier but azunyan love & vn02 pushed it out a bit. Above I was actually going for a full on silhouette but didn’t execute the lighting properly… ended up pasting a bw version of the pic over the original then just erasing over the flame to add some color… turned out ok maybe i guess? ^^; lemme know whacha think
Nice colorful box that’s actually quite wide yet narrow. Even without the mondo base they still needed to fit her twin tails
Ah, and don’t forget all the accessories.
So the first thing I thought when setting up for this review was, “Well, screw being original, I liked my shots last time on black, let’s try that again…”
Turned out pretty nice I guess but then I remembered why I did all those shots on white… bit harder to see any details when she’s melting into the background ^^;; (like the black bg for style purposes though)
Alrighty, well, now you can see a bit better. ‘course now you can see my inexperience with white lighting ^^;
I’ll have to try again, but part of my problem is that i wasn’t having much success illuminating my light box with my smaller light so then my background is way blown out… not sure how you normally describe it but it seems to detract from the subject when your background light is overpowering…
But enuf of my photo woes, just look at her! A pleasure to behold from all angles… for once I enjoyed doing the once around ^^
As you can well see brs has her coat off… it actually attaches to the base with it’s own peg. It also has an awkward sort of peg that she grabs onto.
Thankfully it didn’t take me tooo long to get it in ^^;
pettanko lovers can rejoice, damn brs is flat ^^;
like seriously, super flat
You might notice her skin tone is a bit more healthy… not sure if that’s consistent with the actual color but super pale isn’t my thing so I didn’t have any qualms tweaking the white balance ^^;
Execution is very solid. No complaints from me ^^
Base is very nice. Not as nice as the rock cannon release but as always, just compared to a plain white disc, it’s amazing :P
I thought it was a really nice touch with the broken blade stuck in the floor ^^
Like the first release, just love how her hair is flowing everywhere all crazy
And of course this is the black blade ver, very nice to add another blade to my collection ^^
Now strangely I didn’t notice any instructions in the box so I had to check online for the direction of her blade… but then from what I could tell it looked like the official shots had the blade facing forward? Couldn’t figure out why she’d be holding the blade that way so went with it the other way (my reasoning being that if she swung it from this position the blade would actually contact instead of the back of the sword?). Ah well, let me know if there’s a reason for her to be holding it the other way. Oh and about the instructions… did she come with any?
alternate parts for her blue eye which go nicely in well lit conditions. really makes the blue stand out
again like the previous release you just have to switch out her bangs rather than mess with a separate flame piece. Caution on this version though it seems like you could easily rub off some paint on her arm trying to get it in place.
so no pantsu today :P
prolly shoulda used a smaller aperture but below at least you can see her crazy hair ^^
A color version of the top pic:
Better angle than the top pic too… didn’t have blade version rotated right for the silhouette so you can’t see her flame as much.
I did manage to slip in some shots on black:
Personally I like it but again, not so great when you’re trying to also show off the figure for review purposes ^^;
showing off her slender figure~
kinda like the below shot
‘nother group shot but on black~
‘course i had to boost up blade version to get her on equal footing as the previous release ^^
Guess I went a little overboard again… lotsa pics today ^^;
Well, といっても here’s the last one
The economic brs I’d say ~ retailing 3,000 yen cheaper than the previous release, all she’s lacking is a crazy cannon and base. and I’m sure some prefer the blade to the canon anyway.

Not much to say today so guess I’ll leave it at that for now ^^
