Good Smile Company is going to release the Black Rock Shooter ( ブラック★ロックシューター ) 1/8 PVC figure from the original illustration by Huke. Will be released in August October November December 2009. Around 290mm tall (base included), 9,333 yen.
This is the Black Rock Shooter (BRS) that everyone was talking about in the WH09. I always thought that BRS is Hatsune Miku since Miku was singing the BRS song but I was wrong. She is not related to Miku at all. BRS is an concept character by Huke from his artbook “BLACK★ROCK SHOOTER Visual Works” which was released at Comiket 74.
After the 12,800 yen 1/6 Morigan yesterday, Good Smile Company is bringing the price of PVC figure to the next level AGAIN. This 1/8 BRS has a price tag for 9,800 yen! I would buy her without second thoughts if she is 7,800 yen, but 9,800 yen is way too $$$ to me. Let’s hope that when the Neko Magic store launch, we can get some good deal on her from the wholesaler. =/
——Description from Manufacturer——
A wish on a star, in the darkness of the night.
The original illustration by huke, “BLACK ROCK SHOOTER” has been brought to life as a PVC figure! When ryo first saw huke’s illustration, he was inspired to compose a song based on the image, huke then created a PV for that song, which became a huge hit online. Even a CD has been released!
She has been sculpted holding her huge Rock Cannon, in an striking pose that draws out her mysterious charm. Her flowing hair and jacket, as well as her weapon and beautiful stand have all been carefully sculpted, even the smallest of details had careful attention payed to them, making this a top quality figure from anybody’s viewpoint.
