@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

Welcome to a super special double feature PVC Pre-Order Roundup! You may have noticed the absence of this feature last week, but that’s because we wanted to do a super-packed mega special awesome roundup. Not because we were really busy or anything, certainly not.
This week(s) we’ve got a whole lot going on. There are, of course, a lot of ladies (and one boy). There are some really spectacular figures, including some that I have really been looking forward to and a surprise garage kit to PVC conversion. Oh, and of course there’s the bad too, and a ton of beach figures even though it’s, you know, very cold out. Check them all out after the jump!

The Black Rock Shooter world, originally just a pretty illustration for a Vocaloid song, has become a huge cash cow for Good Smile Company. We’ve got figures, games, an OVA and lastly an anime. At WonFest they announced that they’d be doing Nendoroids and figmas based on the anime designs, and we got a peek at this Dead Master Nendoroid at Dengeki’s 20th Anniversary. She was looking a little radioactive there, so is the final prototype looking any better?
I’m going to be honest: I really dislike most of the new designs. They’re just so overdone! Look at Dead Master here: green all over (though not on her claws, a big mistake on GSC’s part), frills out the wazoo, glasses AND a wedding veil. It’s just too over the top for me. Thankfully you can take the stupid veil off and she looks much cuter that way to me. Her one really redeeming feature is her throne: it’s just so awesome, cool enough to overlook my other problems with her for sure!

Time once again for the wonderful gift of magazine scans! You know, a sneak peak of the figures that will be eating up all our money in 5 months or so. Living on ramen is worth it for such pretty plastic ladies! Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves. Anyway, we’ve got a good batch this month. Some long-awaited Alter sculpts are finally sculpted, we’ve got both Hyakka Ryouran and Queen’s Blade, a Nendoroid fans have been begging for, lots of exclusives, and a few surprises along the way. So come along and check them all out!
[UPDATE] Updated with FREEing and AlphaMax, along with MegaHouse’s Chie and Lancer!

And now we have the painted reveal of the Dead Master Nendoroid, to go along with the figma Black Gold Saw! I really loved BGS but Dead Master is…. uh… really weird-looking. I mean, the green they used for her horns, wings & glasses is so awfully garish, it looks like she’s radioactive. And the veil is just gooey and gross looking, like she’s melting. Really, I’m not sure what went wrong here, but I sure hope they fix it before she goes up for order.

At Wonder Festival, Good Smile Company and Max Factory announced that they’d be working on figmas & Nendoroids of the new BRS Animation designs. Black Rock Shooter’s figma went up a long time ago, but we knew we’d be getting at least Dead Master and Black Gold Saw in the line as well. Surprisingly, Black Gold Saw is painted first! She’s my favorite of the BRS girls, but Dead Master is definitely more popular. I think she looks good, with a much less glossy look than the original and some nice tweaks to her design. Definitely looking forward to this one!

There were a lot of awesome goodies at Wonder Festival, but one of the figures I’ve been looking forward to most was Alter’s Amane Suzuha. She even made it onto our most wanted list! While she seemed finished at the event, you can never really know with Alter when figure will go up for order. I was prepared to wait a long time for Amane’s release, but it seems like we’re getting her very soon! Or at least, you know, we’re getting orders soon. Tonight, in fact!
Amane looks unbelievably good, with so much detail. I love the pose and of course her fantastic bike! While Alter doesn’t have any other Steins;Gate figures (yet), I think she’ll make a lovely pair with Good Smile’s gorgeous Makise and hopefully Plum’s Okarin. I hope we get a Mayuri next!

The Black Rock Shooter anime gave the BRS girls new looks, and some of them seemed a little… well, goofy, like Dead Master’s wedding veil. They’ve grown on me though, and I was surprised that we only got Animation versions of Black Rock Shooter in Nendoroid form. Now we’re getting more: Dead Master will have both a Nendoroid and figma, whereas Chariot is getting a Nendoroid and Black Gold Saw will have a new figma.

As promised in the Mikatan teasers, Good Smile Company is doing a 1/8 scale figure of Insane Black Rock Shooter, who as everyone knows is the best of the BRS girls. Seriously, just look at that amazing hair, ridiculous weapon and over the top flame. Perfection! This is really everything I hoped for and more… the only issue is that my BRS shelf is full. Where will I put her!

And now, the teasers we’ve all been waiting for! Mikatan is always kind enough to give us a sneak peak at the goodies GSC & co will have on display, and there’s a lot to cover here so let’s just jump right in. First off, quite a few things that we already knew about are finished: the 1/7 scale Sena is painted, Nendoroid Gumi is sculpted, and Nendoroids Hakase & Akari Akaza are completed as well.
Now for the new! Let’s go from least exciting to most exciting. First up are two potential new Mikus: one appears to be GIANT and the other is unpainted but looks… like regular Miku? Then there’s a new Fate Nendoroid, no doubt to go with the new Nanoha. There’s a petit of Anzu Futaba, no doubt meaning we’re getting a set from iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls. There’s also an as-of-yet undientified Nendoroid in a yukata, we’ll update when we have more info on her. The most exciting Nendo announcement? NENDO IRON MAN. Ridiculous, but I bet he’ll be cute.
There are only two scaled figures, both of which are pretty predictable but still awesome! First is Karen from Nisemonogatari (meaning we should get a Tsukihi as well) and second is Insane Black Rock Shooter. OH YEAH! I really can’t wait for the full reveal on all of these, and to see what else they have up their sleeve for WonFest.
[UPDATE] The mystery Nendoroid is a yukata version of Miku. It seems like the other Miku teasers are of 1/1 scale display figures or one-offs most likely so hopefully we won’t be getting a million of her. The good news? This Miku’s hair is in buns!
