Ever since the release of supercell's "Black★Rock Shooter", the titular character began to gain its fame in the industry of figure making, and an extensive array of merchandise would later be connected to Black★Rock Shooter.
There are three kinds of figures for Black★Rock Shooter: PVC, Figma and Nendoroid figures.
- PVC figures have only one fixed pose and usually possess extreme detail. Currently, all Black★Rock Shooter PVC figures are in 1/8 scale and are all made by Good Smile Company.
- Figma figures, made by Max Factory, can be poseable and has a variety of body parts which can be interchangeable, offering a wide range of looks for the character.
- Nendoroid figures, made by Good Smile Company, depict the characters in chibi form and can either be poseable or fixed. Nendoroid Petites are often of the fixed types.
- Exceptions to the three include the Black★Rock Shooter and Black★Rock Shooter White ver. figures, both under the Real Action Heroes line, and made by Medicom Toy.
