Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Black Rock Shooter Original

Black Rock Shooter, the one the only. Based on such a beautiful design she is just such a lovely figure. Ever since her original release I’ve been needing to get my hands on this figure. I sadly had to pass up on her first run but the heaven’s opened up and Good Smile bestowed upon us a Re-Release! So I was lucky enough to be able to finally get her into my collection!

I even double lucked out that Good Smile had an issue with Animation ver. of Black Rock shooter and a missing star that people’s interested waned on Black Rock Shooter figures and this particular figure was on Clearance on Hobby search and I was able to get her at a nicely discounted rate.

I adore this figure so much, she’s so well sculpted and designed It’s hard not to appreciate her.

The chain is a huge pain the butt, the instructions that come with the figure are useless but I found thsi amazing video that shows an easy way to get them on!

She’s got some nice legs

I adore her base, It just makes the figure, especially how it helps her tower over other figures, that way she’s a centerpiece item.

The gun is amazing as well as her backside.

The original and the best, Black Rock Shooter Original version is just lovely. Sadly it seems that with the flood of many Black Rock Shooter figures and the hiccup that GSC had with Animation version people are not so gung-ho to own them as they were a year ago. I still personally will collect the rest of the set as I beleive in GSC and do beleive in completing sets. Will you be getting more BRS figures? Do you have any and if so which do you own?

  2. MrColobus says:

    Agree with you about the chain, an utter arse to get on that was. Will watch that video….
    Definately one of the best figures I have, especially with the Nendoroid version sitting in front ^_^

    • Dancing Queen says:

      if i hadn’t found that video i would have thrown the figure accross the room in frustration trying to get the damn chain on!

  3. ENDorphins says:

    Thank you so much for including that video as part of your review. For the love of my sorry geeky life, I couldn’t figure out the silly printed instructions at all!!

    I do believe in completing sets too, so at the moment I’m left with DM animation-version and BGS to arrive at my doorstep. Still yet to see pre-orders for Strength 🙂

    • Dancing Queen says:

      the printed instructions looked like it missed a step or two, i was super confused, i am so thankful for this person and their video

  4. Itachi says:

    Black Rock Shooter rock!!! Anyway, the design looks more realistic than I expected…

  5. JamDeltaV says:

    Cool review and interesting outdoors background.

    Wonder if they will make a high quality White Rock Shooter to go along with the figma?

    • Dancing Queen says:

      no idea i’m hoping and thanks, it’s actually a whole bunch of burnt up work and paper, i wanted to go for a destruction look but you cant’ tell that well in the photos sadly

  6. Blowfish says:

    I am glad that there are still people out there who havent reviewed her yet (or in your case only reviewed her right now)
    I own her since her original release and never got around doing her.

    I muts admit that I dont care about her character at all though since the major points for me were her scars and the big ass gun.In the end i was a bit disappointed how fake the scar was painted but then the overall figure is pretty,pretty sweet.

    Wont collect any of the other BRS Girls though since ,like I wrote, dont care about anything BRS related^^

  7. Andy Mercado says:

    You put something of black rock shooter and im hear!! I love brs figures but I dont have this one but I do have the anime ver. the ones I have are figma brs,figma dead master,and nendroid brs,and geting figma bgs. And the black rock shooter game with whit rock shooter You get figmas to dont you? And are you geting the game?

  8. pyrogamer01 says:

    You were really lucky! I checked Hobby Search just now and they were sold out. The original is amazing, but I know that if I find a way to get it, I’ll want to complete the set, which would be hard since there is Dead Master, Black Gold Saw, and Strength (coming sometime). I do have the BRS figma and nendoroid so I haven’t completely missed the BRS wagon.

  9. lovelyduckie says:

    And here I thoght the animation version of her was a pain in the butt to assemble, this one seems even more frustrating. I’m glad you found a video to help.

  10. Nephalite says:

    Great review and thanks for the video… out of the 3 BRS pvcs I own the hardest one for me was the sword version putting the coat in her hand….. GSC could of done a better job of making peg or some grasping point for it but what evers. As to the missing star on the animation one I kept it in the nice little envelope they sent along with a cd with the video ripped from Youtube on how to put it on.

  11. animemiz says:

    Darn.. this is the figure that I drooled over a couple of years ago.. and yes this is the one I would have loved.. ugh no space.

  12. blup says:

    I just checked and I have a change to get her! …Though I haven’t watched the series… But this figure is just gorgeous and I want it! -But to remember I have plenty older orders unpaid…
