Comment on Insane Black Rock Shooter TV Version Figure by Imyou:

Avatar of Imyou

Yeah. Late 90s, there were a few prepainted figures, but often cheap in price and appearance. They were sort of like upscale action figures. I figured with the flying hair, they might have had to use something stiffer than PVC and maybe make it plug into her head so it’d keep the right shape in shipping.

Either way, it’s awesome that you don’t have to be a master artist to have a figure like this now.

    Nice. I don’t follow figures closely, but it’s crazy that you’d get one of this quality at that price point now. great to see.

    Forgive my ignorance – I’m from the past… Some of those parts look pretty breakable – how would you receive a figure like that? Fully assembled? Mostly assembled with a few slot-in pieces? In the 90s, a figure like that would be made of brittle resin, cost 2-3x as much, and come in a bunch of unpainted pieces you’d have to sand seams off of, glue together, prime, and paint yourself…

    Tetris sits in an interesting place culturally, for me. The game was so insanely widespread and universal in its appeal that it deserves an excellent movie… but at the same time, how sacrilegious can something be to a puzzle game without any characters? Even if it’s a painfully horrible movie, I think I’d be ok with knowing the Tetris movie sucked.

    It is, but since that’s just “Zange-chan” it’s also kinda useless. Adding her name, 朝倉ことみ would help.

    Underappreciated is… not the right word… If you look back 10-15 years ago, Morrigan was like, half of the female cosplay out there.

    Che—-n! She even has fangs… お持ち帰り~! That Tao Paipai guy has it down too! Even the faces he makes are in character.
