BLACK GOLD SAW
1/8 Scale Figure by Good Smile Company

Backstory
I have wanted this figure since I started collecting (3 years ago) and I finally got her!She is my second favourite figure of all times (3st is ITEM #675890 and 1st is ITEM #175846. Both of them I still don't own because of their high, 200$ price.)

I'm a big sucker for badass figures, veapons and dynamic poses so you see why I am so in love with this one! It's just so badass, I am impressed regarding it's almost 10 years old! Good Smile did a really incredable job so this figure isn't just a piece of art for me, it's a piece of HISTORY XD.

I bought her on Solaris Japan for 145$ (including shipping) pre-owned. There's absolute no damage on her or the box except a small, broken peg. The peg broken is the one where the chain is attaching on her hair. It's just for a visual effect, not needed othervise. I don'z mind it since it's un noticable and can be fixed really easely. But I'm to lazy in the moment XD


REVIEW

BOX

The box is amazing! The checker patern faded in the backround of thepictures looks just so good! And owerall, really asthetic and cool looking.

You can see that kind of old fashion figure box with 2 "wings" on the sides. And the lid is opening to the front, not to the back as almost every other figure box. Two more profs how old this figure actually is.

BLISTER

Space is maximaly used in the blister. Figure is perfecly safe, it's only one blister, no layers.

BASE

NOW THIS IS COLLED AN AWESOME BASE. It's absolutely awesome! It's small, and that is what gives this figure so much elegance. Details are so well made and taken care of. Base represents floor block, shattering under Black Gold Saws power giving us a really good reference to the anime. Destroyed pieces are realistic and really well shaded; what we rarely see on figure bases. This base perfectly represents caos and destruction what we see in the anime.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335141.jpeg

The base is really light but perfectly stable while displaying, no worries about that.

WEAPON AND CHAINS
(Bad lightning in these pictures)

Weapon is made really nicely. I really love golden painted scratches on the blade. It really light, so it wont couse eny leaning problems. GSC thought abpout everything I see XD. And overall, it is bigger then I thought. It fits quite tighly in the metal peg on BGS's hand. You will have to put up some force while ataching it.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335149.jpeg



Chains, alot of them! They really make this figure even more dynamic than it is and i LOVE IT! They are also quite light, but really strong. The only bendable one is the biggest one that goes all around BGS.

I really love shattered block pieces attached to the chains, althought they are quite fragile. It's easy to asseamble them, you just need to go exacly in the way instructions shows you. They all fit nicely in the pegs. They are sturdy but you need to be careful or they could snap of. No less details on them!

FIGURE

This figure is damn breathtaking! So much deatails, awesome sculp, paintjob and shading! Wonderfull motion!
She fits REALLY tighly in the base, so no worries that she will fall over or lean.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335156.jpeg


Armor on her legs is really amazingly sculped, but maybe a bit more shading would make it perfect.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335183.jpeg




Skin is really pale, as it should be, and lighly shaded so it doesn't ruin the really pale overall effect.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335164.jpeg


Really nice curves and creases on the clothes.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335180.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335181.jpeg



Hair is quite solid, so the individual strands are quite fragile. Not bendable or elastic. What really got my attention is the way the separrated the idividual hair parts. It always done with some darker color, but they did it with much lighter red. It gives me a effect of "glow" and it looks really good!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335175.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335178.jpeg



Face is also really nice. No complains about that as much as for the horns.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335189.jpeg



The biggest chain attaches at the skull's mouth for support.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335168.jpeg


Chain should attach on the hair also but as I said, that peg is broken on my figure. It's just for a bit better visual effect but not needed othervise. I will fix it one day.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/11/20/2335169.jpeg



And this it! Few shots of the overall figure for the end!

Great review! I've been on the hunt for her and the BRS scale for a while, I have the Dead Master scale on it's way to me too and I'm super excited!

I've been keeping an eye on Solaris in the preowned section for BGS since I want to get her soon.

I love dynamic scales like this!

Cloudberry8 månader sedan#70582398Ahhhhhh BRS! Thanks for the review! The art for BRS is toooooooo good and this figure totally captures that distinct BRS art style. The base looks fabulous as heck and the chains with the figure is like the cherry on top. Put it all together and its really beautiful.
Reading this review figure makes me excited for the upcoming BRS fig....


Thank you for reading :)
And you aren't alone here, I am also really excited about new BRS figure! I just wish for GSC to pull out a regular and DX version for that one

Xardej8 månader sedan#70580362Great review. She's a beaut, isn't she?
It's pretty amazing that after these several years nothing quite compares to BRS still, isn't it?


I complietly agree with you. Even if BRS series is old, their design and figures are no match for most of the modern animes

SkaylerOtakuCat8 månader sedan#70563202Haha, thank you! And yeah, I was also thinking about BRS anniversary. There is a figure anounced from GSC ITEM #675843 , for which I am looking forvard to. You never know, maybe we get something from the anime studio ;)
I knew about that figure and I think it's a sign that the franchise might make a comeback! It's been a while since any new figures were made. And a new anime would be nice! My wish is a continuation on the 2012 anime, because that last scene with View spoilerHide spoilerStrength seems to me a cliffhanger.
