White Rock Shooter Archive

For a long while now, Medicom has been teasing a White Rock Shooter counterpart to their Black Rock Shooter RAH. Note that this is based on the original WRS design, which is basically a gloomy recolor of BRS, not the game design, which is a bit over-the-top. I definitely prefer this design, especially the dark flame over her eye–the game design just has too much going on for me.
This, sadly, appears to be a Wonder Festival exclusive, and with a retail price of ¥20,000 she won’t come cheap even at the event. I think if you have the original version, though, there’s not a huge reason to purchase this. She also doesn’t seem to come with as many accessories as BRS, with only an axe shown off. However, there’s probably bound to be more weapons that we will see at the event!

Usually magazine scans come out on a predictable schedule, so imagine my surprise when these images popped up early! They’re certainly not the full scans, and they’re missing the crisp, scanned-in quality of the actual thing. Basically these are rather illicit cellphone shots of Hobby Japan taken a day early, because Japan is so serious about toys that they will sneak online images of a magazine a day in advance.
There’s a lot of new stuff in the pieces we’ve seen so far: a Siggy Revoltech from Queen’s Blade Rebellion, a figma of Princess of Crystal from Mawaru Penguindrum, and a model kit of Danboard from Kotobukiya. We’ve also seen a lot of stuff newly sculpted: the Cheerful Japan Miku, the Inami Mahiru Nendoroid from Working!!, and most excitingly Max Factory’s Tony Taka Luka! I didn’t expect to see her painted so early after her “re-announcement” last month, so this is amazing news.
As for colored stuff, we’ve got the White Rock Shooter RAH and confirmation that the Shining Blade Sakuya is real! While this is a lot of info you can tell this is not all of the scans because of the complete lack of figures from Alter, MegaHouse, and AmiAmi Zero, who usually show off at least one new thing each month. There are also no Beach Queens, and we usually get at least 2 of them! Full scans should be going up tonight, and we’ll be sure to post them as quickly as we can!
[UPDATE] So we STILL don’t have real scans, just some bad cellphone pictures of some new pages. There’s really only 3 things worth pointing out that are new–Max Factory’s 1/7 Holy Angel Kamineko Kuroneko is painted, AmiAmi Zero’s Yagyu Jubei popped up, and the last one is quite strange–Alter showed off Hanna-Justina Marseille from Strike Witches 2. Granted, she looks absolutely stunning, but Alter hasn’t finished sculpting their Strike Witches 1 line. It seems kind of odd for them to be starting on the second one already!

Once again, our loot is two months late! I was thinking back about our July and June posts, though, and it doesn’t seem so bad. We didn’t even get payment requests for our August orders until mid-September, and it takes a while to receive everything and then organize it all. If you order only 1 one 2 figures a month you’ll get them right on time, but the bigger the order the longer the delay.
Anyway, back on topic! August was our biggest month ever for figure orders, as we ended up with both of our AmiAmi orders and a flood of exclusives that all seemed to come out at once. It’s probably going to be our biggest month ever (or at least for quite some time), as Stephen and I have started trimming down our orders quite a bit.

Japan has started to get their Append Miku figmas, and we all know what that means–picture spamming time! Usually when an important figma or Nendoroid gets released, we get a handful of goofy pictures and most of them are just showing off the details. But not this time. Oh no, Append Miku gets a special place in toy fan’s hearts, and it seems like people are trying to create the ultimate (bizarre) figma mashup featuring this blue-haired diva.
Some of them, like the toned-down White Rock Shooter/Append mashup, are simple and elegant. But others? Well, they’re decidedly strange. Metis x Append looks a bit odd, but some of them, like the mix of Black Rock Shooter, Append, Black Gold Saw and KOS-MOS is just downright disturbing. I’m so tempted to do very odd things with mine the second I get her–I’m sure I could find a way to mashup Append, Love Machine, Asuka and Strength!
