Yep, it is another custom Nendoroid delight for you: Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter: GSC version. Instead of the previously seen White-themed version of BRS as well as White Rock Shooter, this time we are seeing a fresh orange-colored BRS with GSC logo which replaced the initial star-shaped logo. This custom Nendoroid reminds me of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: GSC version which were given as GSC photocon prize a few years ago. ^^

Custom Nendoroid from Black Rock Shooter Spotted

Whoa … what do we have here? Apparently someone is inspired from the white version of Black Rock Shooter (a.k.a White Rock Shooter), and she decided to repaint the whole BRS casts into white-colored theme. The white version of Black Rock Shooter, Dead Master, Black Gold Saw, and Strength look awesome, don’t they? XD

Personally though, I think that the re-painted Nendoroid Strength is the best out of those four. The purple-colored hair looks pretty cool on Strength. What about you, Nendonesian? What do you think about the custom/repainted Nendoroid? ^^

Nendoroid Planet Photo Contest

If you recall our review of the iOS app Nendoroid Planet a few months ago, there is a section titled “The MUSEUM” with 2 sub-section: “Catalog” and “3D Models“. In 3D Models, we can view the 3D-rendered models of a few Nendoroid. Beside zooming and rotating, we can also take photos of the 3D Nendoroid with our environment as the photo background.

Yep, this capability is now being featured as a photo contest. The main rules is simple: submit one photo of 3D-rendered Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter or Nendoroid Dead Master, taken with Nendoroid Planet app. The submission has been started on August 31 and will end on September 22. The prize for best photo submission is a BRS illustration made and signed by huke, plus a signature of Sakamoto Maaya! The winner will also get a copy of PSP game Black Rock Shooter: The GAME. Wooot! (o . o)/

The bad news is … well, the contest is only applicable for Japan citizen. That’s it – international participants are not eligible to participate in the photocon. Awww … (-_-“)

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

Black Rock Shooter: TV Animation is Announced

Black Rock Shooter TV Animation

Black Rock Shooter TV Animation

Although the Nendoroid line-up from Black Rock Shooter is quite strong, it seems that the OVA didn’t please much fans back then when it was released last year. That might be what in the mind of BRS Project team when they decide to produce the TV animation version, which is planned for January 2012 broadcast.

Some changes in the main casts are spotted in the pic, such as Black Rock Shooter’s hood, Dead Master’s glasses, and a new girl with yellow-brown colored hair – Strength is mysteriously absent there. Obviously, the man behind that illustration is huke, who also done the original design of Steins;Gate’s characters. ^^

I know, this news might not be related to Nendoroid …. for the time being. Who knows what would happen later? Nendoroid rendetion of BRS TV Animation version look more likely than ever! XD

What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

The release schedules of long awaited Nendoroid Cirno from Touhou Project and Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford (a.k.a Sharo) from Tantei Opera Milky Holmes are pushed back to August. Both of them are initially scheduled to be released by this month though.

Well, GSC are getting busy to prepare for the upcoming summer WonFes, so it is reasonable that we get some delays … but, hey, at least Nendoroid Black Rock Strength (a.k.a STR) got a release date: July 25 – yes, that is one day after WonFes! ^^

Any thoughts, Nendonesian?
