I went back and forth a lot on Strength (Good Smile Company), I LOVED the arms and her hood. I would have preferred a different pose though, all the rest of the BRS Animation figures seem ready to do a deadly attack! But Strength seems more like she’s (casually) trying to evade a hit. Basically Strength looks like she’s more-so on the receiving end on one of the other character’s attacks than actually attacking herself. But even though I say I’d prefer a different pose…I can’t think of an awesome aggressive pose that wouldn’t block Strength’s body from view…so perhaps GSC couldn’t overcome that dilemma either. I must admit I’m so fond of the character designs of Black Rock Shooter and have ordered so many figures from the series that I think I’m almost too scared to watch the series. If I don’t like the characters in the anime my love of the figures will diminish a bit :/ despite liking the character designs visually.

At long last! My #1 desired One Piece figure! I love this figure of Luffy, it has an awesome presence. The moment I saw this open for pre-order it was immediately dropped in my cart, there was no way I was skipping him. He’ll soon be standing proudly in front of his entire Strong Edition crew! My next haul post will contain a few waves of releases of the crew. I haven’t gotten around to taking those photos because my entire figure/manga room is in disarray with my recent figure sales. Also, for some reason I don’t think I did the lighting too well on the Luffy shoot, oh well, I’ll try and do better next time.
Zoro is an awesome character, definitely one of my all time favorites. I’m buying BOTH Strong Versions of him being released, I don’t care that he’s the only one I’ll have doubles of from this set! The more Zoro the better! Of the two Zoro figures being released I think I’ll end up liking Version 2 the best. Why Version 2? Simply because it’s Zoro in a tuxedo! When I first started collecting figures the Skypia Megahouse Zoro was one of my most wanted figures, I was ecstatic when they had an improved re-release. Although of the One Piece Strong set I’d say Zoro Ver. 2 and Ver. 1 place #2 and #3 on my MUST HAVE list for this set. My #1 desired figure is the Luffy that I’ll be reviewing next time!
Oh yes, this Saber is a must have for me! I’m so glad I skipped her Gift version. I much prefer how GSC portrayed her here, although I’m incredibly biased because she will go SO WELL next to my Distant Avalon Saber! Now nothing against the Gift Saber, that Saber has her beautiful merits as well. But overall this Saber is my preference. If GSC decides to make a trio and create a complimentary Dark Saber I will give them my full support (and money). Although they might be too busy working on their 4th, 5th, and 6th Black Rock Shooter (BRS) figures It would probably be smart of them if they would put out another Rider figure instead of so many of BRS. Although I admit, the collectors out there that gather every BRS, their shelf will probably look awesome having them all side by side.
