New arrival to my slowly growing collection of figmas, Max Factory’s Black ★ Rock Shooter (figma). Yet I feel disappointed…
Maybe it’s because I haven’t taken her out of the box to really check her out and play around with her. But looking at her through the plastic window I’m just entirely underwhelmed by her. It could also just be apathy towards the whole Black ★ Rock Shooter franchise, or perhaps just her herself. She was new and interesting when the first figure came out, and the excitement carried to the anime version (which I also pre-ordered) and some of the garage kits that followed, but it’s been well over a year since the original was available for pre-order, in fact it’s been 18 months, and 4.5 months since I received her. She’s had plenty of time to settle in now.
So the dilemma for me right now is, do I take her out of the box play around with her and decide whether or not I like her. Or just sell her unopened on MFC or eBay and be done with it. It would be easy as I still have the original box she shipped in as well as the packaging.
One thing I’ve noticed on my packaging that I haven’t seen on others’, is a sticker that mentions a 50 minute DVD, as I can’t read moonspeak I’m not sure what it’s saying. I’m assuming it’s just advertising the DVD and not that they included it in the box, that would be too nice a bonus, even if the OVA was pretty bland.
So, what do you think, sell or play?
