Thus the figure carry case was created!

Take-chan really outdid himself this time! It really has that nice home-made feeling to it. 😛

The figure I’m reviewing today takes up a lot of space, so finding something that would hold it safely was really difficult. At least now Miyan can head to the photo shoot safely!
002
And that figure is this one!

Strength  -animation version- !

Strength featured briefly in the Black Rock Shooter anime, watching over Black Rock Shooter during one of her battle scenes.
003

Let’s take a closer look!

She is the same scale as all the previous BRS figures – 1/8th scale. Strength herself is quite petite and cute, but her huge arms and stand really give her a volume to boast about!
005

This is how she looks from the back!

Looking at it from this angle makes it look as if she is floating in mid air…!  You might be a little bit worried about the stability of the figure, but don’t be – it’s in fact very securely attached by the ogre arms and the blocks on the stand.

006

Her giant robotic arms – Ogre Arms!

The paint work looks absolutely stunning!! The Nendoroid Orge Arms looked great, but the 1/8th scale version are on a completely different level!!
009

The back of the Orge Arm!

The best thing about figures – you can look at your favorite characters from any angle you want to!

Another cool thing about the arms is that you can see exactly how they would move from their design… I can just picture them moving now!!
004

A close up on her face!

She has a much more loli face when compared to the other BRS girls… it’s very cute!! The hood covering up her mouth also adds a nice mysterious feeling!

008

Her lovely long tail in all it’s glory!

Strength-chan has a long bone-like tail quite similar to Dead Master’s horns. The detail on the tail is also incredible to look at!

I also really like the bare skin from her back over to her arms…
007

Her beautiful armpits! Aren’t they stunning!?
I still remember Dead Master’s bare back very fondly… but…

This no-sleeve look really is something as well!

Then there is this shot… which has given Strength-chan quite the reputation in the GSC offices!

While I was taking photos, the sculptor of the original BRS figure series, Akeji, came by to give a comment…

Panties…?? Panties!? PANTIES!!

Ooooh! He’s right!!

And now for a sudden change of topic…

Black Rock Shooter: Character Charm Collection 03 – King Saw will be going on sale soon!
I got a sample, so I’ll play around with it for a bit… 😛
013
figma Black Gold Saw can even hold it!
It’s metal so it really shines… it makes her look very classy!

The charms are actually fairly heavy for figmas to hold, but Golden Saw’s hands are fairly large so she can hold it quite nicely. ^^
It also comes with a chain, so you can of course use it as an accessory as well!
012

Strength and Golden Black Saw!

It obviously looks good to display 1/8th scale figures together with each other… but differing scales can also look quite nice together!
 
Is it just me, or does the picture above have a distinct yuri feeling about it?
