Figma 116 is Black Rock Shooter, but in her video game incarnation, not as she appeared in either of her animes. This version maintains the high standards that collectors expect from the line, for the most part. She is quite difficult to work with, however, because of the sharp and tenuous wings on her back. Also, the Rock Cannon is so massive it threatens to tip her over, even when supported by its own stand!
Black Rock Shooter
The figure is pretty impressive, and accurate to the smallest details, like the very accurate stitches on her abdomen. Funny though how I never noticed how obnoxious the video game version's shoes were...
I include this because there's always an accessory I forget to photograph. In this instance it's the Black Katana. In the artwork and anime, I think it's called the Crooked Katana, but the box calls this one the Black Katana. This is a sadly disappointing accessory, as it looks like it was cut out of a sheet of cake decoration (fondant).
Here again, I include the abck of the package because the guys who take the pictures for the art are much better at posing the figures. Here I thought I was pretty clever with the 'down the barrel of the Rock Cannon' shot.
The articulation on this figure can be a little overwhelming. Her wings are articulated. Heck her twin ponytails are articulated! The problem with this figure is the wing protrusions, they are sharp! It makes working with the figure not for the faint of heart.
The Rock Cannon
Black Rock Shooter's signature weapon, the Rock Cannon. In the video game, it is slightly more diminutive than the anime, and instead of being able to transform into the Black Lance, or gatling gun, is less powerful, but sporting a bayonet. Even so, it's still massive enough to require its own stand. And even then, the stand tips over, so you have to weight it.
