Comments Black Rock Shooter - My First Nendoroid

  • RPG_FAN12811 days ago#85020505Item number 186!? Wow talk about original entry items on MFC. This year I saw my first 7-digit item. Sometimes I wish that only figures were allowed to be entries on MFC. Ah well...
    Very interesting read though! Sorry you got hit with a bootleg purchase. I was overly paranoid about counterfeits when I first started collecting. But thankfully it only takes buying a few figures to know the difference between real quality and bootleg. The only time I felt I was ripped off is when I bought a resin statue "NEW" .... but it was not. But hey, maybe the seller didn't mind getting negative feedback for misrepresenting their listing just to make some money.


    Thanks so much for reading! Yeah, getting hit with a bootleg purchase so early on in collecting sucked but I was only 11 at the time and didn't have the expertise I do now. If anything, it was a good learning experience (even if it was a very disappointing birthday gift.

    ninjablde11 days ago#85000249I also bought a bootleg of her, but on purpose cause at the time i didnt wanna pay the price for a legit one. For awhile i regretted doing that. A couple years ago I walked into a Book-off and there sat an official one. Bought it right away!

    That's a lucky find! I've never been to a Book-Off but I definitely want to someday, I'm sure they have a bunch of cool used stuff. Plus I'm sure their book and CD prices beat Kinokuniya by a mile. Thanks for reading!!

    Asphroxia11 days ago#84997089Thank you for this post <3 seeing brs content always puts a smile on my face
    she's really cute and I love the recognizable checker pattern instead of the old plain nendo base, wish they did that more often nowadays
    edit; as for my first figure, it was ITEM #5780 actually whos show I watched around the same time as black rock shooter, of course I didn't know anything about collecting and thus it was a bootleg as well xD but I still cherish it to this day she's held up great over a literal decade!


    Thanks for reading!! IKR, I feel like there isn't much talk about BRS nowadays but it's still a favorite of mine, especially the OVA. Also that's a wonderful first pick, her design is super cute and I like how dynamic her hair sculpt feels.

    Moomoogirl111 days ago#84994461My first nendoroid was Onadera Kosaki ITEM #198410. I've been a fan of anime since middle school but I always thought figures were just fan service pieces. Then I saw Onadera at a convention stall and peeked that I could change her face. And give her different poses. And that she came with accessories?! The guy at the stall really egged me to get her lol But she was worth it.
    Very nice review by the way, she's such a cute little thing. I love her dead eye sulking face the most. This makes me nostalgic for the when the OVA of BRS came out. I remember listening to the song before it came out on repeat too.


    Thanks for reading! I haven't watched Nisekoi but Onodera's design is super cute and she makes for an even cuter Nendoroid. Also, can relate to being talked into buying stuff at convention halls. I have Nendoroids of Umi and Nico from Love Live, and even though I adore Love Live, Umi and Nico aren't even my favorite characters. Got talked into buying both at an Anime Expo booth and because I was over the moon about a movie release announcement it worked on me way easier than it would have otherwise, lol.
