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…

    Right… so since someone who once proposed an ad for Clinton said something dumb, Clinton is the antichrist here to take our anime away. Vote instead for the most dangerous sociopath to have entered American politics. This site works a lot better without American politics TBH, especially when the level of facepalm induction is that high. This fool speaks for Clinton’s policy points in the same way the most backward Narutard speaks for all of us.

    I loved all the Mario Bros games, before they were even “super”, but 64 killed it for me. It was insufferable. 3D platformers are an awful idea. That’s one reason there’s such a return to 2D platformers now. I’ve tried some later Marios like Galaxy too, but… it’s just a chore.

    That’s why I didn’t get a WiiU and sadly can’t play Splatoon… They dropped the Wii so fast and hard it was still on shelves (they’d just launched a refresh!) when they killed all the online features. I mean, if its shelf life turns it into such a rental, then just lend me the hardware for free or fee and I’ll pay to use the software. I’m not buying it outright for a quick fling.

    I’m so curious why Ooishi there has a black eye…

    Yeah… Granzella(?) had a nice Edo village with games and everything. Run around fighting oni with your cheap starter shinai etc.
