As popular as ever, Good Smile Company has released the Black ★ Rock Shooter Nendoroid and figma for pre-order at local internet retailers. As we've all seen the pre-production pictures, these finalized PVC figures are sure to be a treat for any BRS fan. Pre-order numbers hit in the 20,000 range within the first day!
The Nendoroid version comes with her Rock Cannon and Black Blade and even comes with the checkered stand. Like all Nendroids, extra hair parts and different attachments are included.
Akibahobby has uploaded a single photo taken at the Tokyo International Anime Fair, of a 1/7 scale PVC prototype Rin Tosaka from Fate/stay night. The figure is impressively sculpted with careful attention to the contours of the body, though the shirt is rather unrealistically tight around her chest. No detailed sign was included in the photo but the figure was placed with other Goodsmile figures, thus leading us to assume it's most likely being manufactured by Goodsmile or possibly Max Factory.
As an added note, an additional photo shows that Goodsmile will be releasing yet another PVC figure of Saber from the same series, though after carefully examining her foot and chest armor it clearly shows that it's a 1/7 scale Dark Saber. Also note the absence of her signature ahoge on her head. We'll update accordingly with more information and photos as they appear online inside.
Reports are trickling in as the Tokyo International Anime Fair is in full swing. Apparently, a prototype figure of Nadeko Sengoku from Bakemonogatari is on display as well as a colored sample of Hitagi Senjogahara shown earlier this year at the Winter Wonder Festival. We'll update with more photos as they become available inside.
Continuing with the updates, Max Factory has on display colored PVC samples of Mio Akiyama in her maid outfit with guitar, and Ritsu Tainaka from the high school girl band series K-On! Max Factory had previously released both girls as part of their posable figma line. More updates to come as more images are released inside.
Updated: More photos inside, price has been confirmed to be roughly 7,800 yen.
As part of their second announcement, Alter will be releasing a figure of Momohime from the critically acclaimed Wii game, Muramasa: The Demon Blade. Standing on top of a beautiful base of rock and water, she can be posed with her sword sheathed or unsheathed. The figure was shown earlier this year at the Winter Wonder Festival and will be released in July 2010 for approximately 8,190 yen.
