figma Chariot rides into pre-orders, demands macaroons

One of the many things I enjoyed about the Black Rock Shooter anime was the design of the superbly disturbed original character, Chariot. Though she's been out and about as a Nendoroid, her creepy character design was al...

More magazine scans mean more figma prototypes

Good Smile have never been the most hasty of companies, and in her preview even Kahotan admits that it's been almost two years since the Black Rock Shooter animated series aired. Still, they're nothing if not thorough and now the final entry in the new line of 'Animation version' Nendoroids from the series has arrived.

Although we've seen the BRS designs to death by this point this is still a great looking Nendoroid, with her spiky design and eerie face really doing a lot to convey the creepiness of the character. She's also bundled with one of my favourite accessories for a while - two tiny figures of her 'incomplete girls', marvelously detailed for their minuscule size. Pre-orders open tomorrow and we'll have all the links right here.

Nendoroid Strength is quite a handful
by Tianxiao Ma

The Black Rock Shooter craze peaked just as I was getting into figure collecting - in fact the original figma BRS was one of the first figmas I ever bought. Seeing the franchise continue on sure does take me back a ways!

Kahotan's English blog has a preview of the new Nendoroid Strength up. She's sporting her signature hoodie, and of course her gigantic robot hands too. In the package you'll get a selection of alternate arms and her "insane" expression. If you have her ordered, she'll be shipping out on December 16. Just in time for the holidays!
