Chag: So, looks like GSC dun goofed with their Black Rock Shooter figure. To be honest, it really isn’t all that big of a blunder. If I got the figure, I probably wouldn’t have noticed the missing star unless someone pointed it out. Besides, a missing star isn’t going to break the figure in terms of aesthetic appeal. To me, Saber’s mouth is a far more serious issue, but as a sweeping and easily identifiable production error that is acknowledged by GSC, this star fiasco is bound to become an embarrassing pee stain on GSC’s blanket. I wonder what the GSC fanboys are saying right now.

Ashlotte: I’d say the real rub is the fact this happened to all of them. I mean, all of us have seen our fair share of screw-ups on individual figures, but something of this scale and so obvious? Bleh. Oh well, GSC hasn’t made any figures I’ve wanted for quite a while, so this doesn’t affect me – I just find it fun to discuss! =P

Chag: Yeah, when you don’t have $100+ riding on this figure, the debacle is kind of fun to watch. It’s kind of like America’s Funniest Videos – a lot of the blunders caught on tape are just downright painful, yet to the audience it’s the greatest of low-brow comedy. And hey, though I doubt a public shitstorm would cripple the GSC giant, it would be nice for them to be on their tippy-toes with their future releases!
