Black Rock Shooter - Animation ver painting error

An annoucement from Good Smile company was made concerning a painting error made on the animation version of Black Rock Shooter released this month, the error consist of the star on her jacket (see picture) being missing from the final mass produced figures.

Good Smile offered two solutions to this problem, either to send the buyers of the figure a sticker that you can apply yourself (free of charge) or send the figure itself back to them and they will manually paint the star themselves (also for free), this 2nd option will provide tracking so you can know whats going on with your item.

For contact and the form to use, please go to this page (english) of Mikatan's blog.

Nendoroid Konpaku Youmu

Aint she a cutie?!
From goodsmile, once more we are blessed wit a nendoroid rendition of a popular Touhou character, this time of Konpaku Youmu.

Release date: March 2011
Price: 3000 Yens
Size: 10 cms
Rating: 10/10

Youmu comes with her ghost half Myon wich can be displayed encircling her, she has the standard 3 facial expressions, normal neutral face, one with the eyes closed and a serious fighting face. Both her swords Roukaken and Hakurouken are available and can be displayed in her hands, sheeted or being held on her back.

I recently aquired the Reimu nendo and she only came with 1 face and is somewhat very big compared to the other nendos, but since Sanae all the Touhou nendos have been both very acurate and high quality and this one will be no exception.
According to Mikatan's blog Yuyuko Saigyouji, Youmu's mistress, is supposed to be the next in line for production!!!

Black Magician Girl by Kotobukiya

Well this is something i have been waiting for ages!!!
This is Black (Dark) Magician Girl of popular Shonen Jump title Yugioh, one of the most popular, loved and seeked creature in the card game.

Release Date: March 2011
Price: 6800 Yens
Size: 18 cms, scaled 1/7
My Rating: 10/10

Kotobukiya did an amazing job on this figure as expected of them, even more that the original designer Takashi Takeushi was present during its creation. The colors are brilliant and beautifull and every little details have been recreated to perfection. 2 faces are included, her signature wiking one wich im crazy over and a more neutral expression, both feature her oh so cute blushing cheecks that are part of her innocent charm. Her trademark hat and costume are perfect and she is posed as if floating on her wand as could be seen occasionally on the anime.
