I'm really starting to like this trend of my pictures being used for op images.
Box is very cool, shame the other side got wrecked during shipment. Also he's fucking huge, way bigger than I thought he would be which is nice.
Very heavy as well, made me think he was made of diecast metal or something.
I haven't gotten a revoltech in over 5 years but this quality blows every other one I have out of the water. 10/10 would buy again.
I picked up my Ultron from Post Office.
I see what people mean by the hip joints being weird.
Funny thing is, it actually behave much like the old school cut joints hips seen in old Revos such as the older Evas, Patlabor, etc.
The peg on the thigh ends are angled inwards, and the hip ends are diagonally pointed towards the spine. the joints are not quite designed to be pulled out so it's hard to increase the range of motion with that trick. So far the only problem I see is moving the legs straight forward. He can only sit with the legs spread out.
Oh and the elbow joints are the exact same joints used in Minis. The one used for the torso. So no ratchets.
I feel you on the hips, but I'm minding them much less than I thought I would. If you want him to be able to sit/have better forward kicks, you can just swap the thighs. He ends up a little knock knee'd when standing straight up so I usually leave them on normally, but it's useful if you want to do a particular pose.
They can provide some cool looking poses, just gotta take the time to balance him.
W-well then. I've had him for about a week and never thought about that even though I knew he couldn't. Guess I just really liked the idea.
Anyone have any figure ideas that would fit in a golden throne surrounded by lewd figures?
I've always loved reading the comics and watching the cartoon as a kid, but I just realized I don't have a decent Spider-Man figure yet.
How's the Revoltech? I thought of getting the Mafex, but I don't like the scale, and the figma picked a design of the suit I don't like.
He's okay. He is not as poseable as you would think, and I don't like the eye design of that suit, but the body sculpt is great. Like it looks like an actual person in a costume. Ad I guess you already know but he is a tad small, which is okay for Spidey I suppose.
Yeah it's weird he didn't do that and throw in the effect foot stand almost every Yamaguchi Revo had for the last few years. But it seems the goal was to not have any eye-catching holes on him, and it was not needed due to the new stand.
There's a new movie coming out? I had no idea. If that's the case, yeah I think you're right, I should wait.
I'm not a fan of the eyes myself, but I figured he'd be the most "normal" looking, articulated Spidey I can get besides the Mafex.
Thanks for the info, anons. I think I'll wait it out, unless I find it for a cheap price.
Another round, this time the First Order takes a crack at him.
>There's a new movie coming out? I had no idea
No, he is going to be in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Meant to be a big deal as Marvel sorted something out with Fox to feature him.
They cast some kid though.
There is a new movie coming too, like next year?
The one in Civil War sounds like will be wearing a "homemade" suit so I don't think we will see figures of him, except for maybe Hot Toys stuff.
Started a thread the other day asking about the Takeya Jizai Okimono skelly set, rust vs bone color scheme.
Several anons were kind enough to reply and repost pics. Today the girlfriend took me to the toy store and asked me to pick out a toy I wanted. I do honestly want the bone ver but I didn't want to be difficult and was super happy she was doing this as a surprise for me, so I picked out the one with the best wash. There was also a shf renewal Black for $80 but I didn't feel like paying for scalp prices on a $30 toy.
I have to say having a four armed, two headed oni skeleton is pretty damned fucking awesome. The joints for the lower limbs do need some adjustments to make them hold the pose better, but the sculpt and just how fun this toy is really made it one of my fav purchases this year.
Takeya really makes some seriously cool toy a lot of people are sleeping on. The base really brings it to another level too, this sitting alongside the other Takeya revoltechs do make them feel like museum pieces.
pretty funtastic, for an older revo. I'd like to see what yamaguchi could do now revisiting some of his older scuplts.
I feel like this could have been shot from a slightly better angle to lessen the visual confusion of the silhouettes, but those are some really great poses. You can really feel the momentum and followthrough of the kick and Ultron's head snapping back.
End. Got so worn out by this point, will continue the battle some other time.
Here he is next to some ML figures. Let me know what else you'd like to see.
It just came to me, a Yamaguchi Revoltech Hellboy would've been so awesome. It's right up Yamaguchi's taste in characters too. Too bad Hellboy is no where near recognition in Japan.
My skelly came in and I love him. Please accept a picture.
Too many to post all of them, here's the album:
Is it supposed to look like this? None of the pictures do. If so fuck this toy.
Tried forcing it a little but it wont budge, and don't want to break it. Does anyone here even own this toy?
Anyone else with Ultron, are the legs on yours even? The right hip peg doesn't go into the socket in the thigh all the way, so it ends up slightly longer than the left leg. I'm not sure how to make the hole deeper without risking making it wider accidentally and thus looser.
Hellboy appears several times in magazines that promote illustrators and comics. Terada one of the most beloved illustrators there did one of the best fanart of it, which got produced into a statue by Dark Horse. Nirasawa, also another highly esteemed artist, was invited along with Terada by Del Toro to work on the first Hellboy designs for the movie.
Hellboy is well known amongst this circle of creators. I met Trigun's artist, who is a frequent collaborator on Revoltech and Assemble Borg at comic con and he knows Mignola himself. Mignola himself is a fan of Terada and Takeya... so I think if they were ever mutually interested, I doubt there'll be much hesitance.
That's pretty cool. I meant the general public, and so Kaiyodo might not make it for fear of lack of sale......but that never seem to stop them before lol. To a degree.
Oh and I'm well aware Nightow loves Hellboy, I read Blood Blockade Battlefront.
yeah, that is really what keeps revoltech sneaking back into my buying habits. I last said, I'll stop and focus on hunting down the rest of Takeya figures that I haven't secured yet... then they announce a full line of Takeya Buddhist revoltechs, going as far as even having "unpainted" and "original" colors of those statues. I really have to give it to them, no one else, not even Bandai would have gone for that. They're dedicating resources to producing "themes" that other companies would only dare take on as gashapons.
I'm waiting for a Takeya revoltech of Terada's Monkey King.
Oh you mean when you put the torso in that position? It can go up, where the gap gets closed. So you're complaining on action figure that gets gaps when you move them in a certain way? That's almost every Japanese figures.
Yeah that statue was awesome. I can see them going more into Yokai territory with Revo, with the passing of Shigeru Mizuki and that Level5 game being everywhere. Like the CEO goes all "this is the real stuff!" I want a Nue. Or full cast of Kitaro's gang.
They do tend to do something new, then stop when other companies copies them.
I said it before, but Zetman is a really cool Revoltech if you don't have it yet.
No, I means there is ALWAYS s giant gap no matter what position its in. In every picture it fits snug, but here it seems way bigger and floats ontop. Almost seems like the lower half of the body was scaled down.
Hm. Well either the joint is not all the way in, or the part that covers it is warped. It is a softer, thinner piece afterall. You can heat it up with a hair dryer and squeeze it closer together.
Takeya had already done several yokai gashapons for Kaiyodo and they were excellent. Of course, since you seem to be a fan of the line itself, sure you already noticed the Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro revos he did for Kaiyodo too. I'm still waiting to see if he'll finish all 28 guardians of Kannon, as he had started with Garuda, Raijin and Fujin, he had already completed drawing the designs, as shown in his artbook... but I'm unsure if Kaiyodo will continue the Takeya Buddhist line. I'm happy I finally have poseable Agyo and Ungyo though, more so that it's by Takeya.
Yup. I don't have the gashapon yokai (and box figures?) but I've seen them at a Kaiyodo exhibit. Have the Kitaro Revos too. Grew up on the anime in the 90s. CEO was being so proud on live stream how Kaiyodo have already done several Kitaro stuff before Mizuki passed away, and made fun of other companies tweeting "we were great fans of his work" but didn't make product.
Yeah I think they are done with Buddha statue Revoltech. Like anything else, once art statue figma started they retreated. Even though it's not that similar... I guess the subject and the price point were no longer ideal so they went with more popular creatures. It was hinted the latest ones will be a knight and possibly a samurai (Sanada) for the horses, so at least we're back to humanoids.
Time to get some Assemble Borgs I think
I think sales weren't very good, despite the products being excellent and unique (or rather maybe because it's unique...). It really was a childhood dream of mine to have posable figures of those deities, even more, sculpted by Takeya. I hope they really get around to finishing it.
Getting some pretty noticeable paint chipping on Ultron's feet. Haven't noticed anything on any other part of the figure though. I guess I have been putting him through the ringer with all those battle photos I've been doing, but I'm still a little worried that it'll get more frequent later on.
You gotta admit, it looks better than the promo shots.
I mean, yeah, but it's still waaaay off. Yamaguchi can do accurate faces too, just never for snake. It's kinda weird at this point.
What I would kill for a full sized Gray Fox revo now seeing how crazy articulated Ultron and Snake is.
So has anyone figured out what the hell's going on with Snake's hips? They look crazy well articulated, but whatever joint is in there is extremely well hidden in nearly every photo
I dont think mine does. I'll have to check later. If so, I'm sending it back.
Of course, tried a ton of different things the past few days. Something is just completely off about that piece. Feel like i can't return it anyway now though because i've tampered with it too much.
Just snagged a first anime Lupin from Manda for 4000 Yen to go with a Jigen I recently ordered.
Condition was stated as the box being opened by the manufacturer for inspection, but was retaped.
Anyone ever buy something listed like that? I figured I'd take a chance with it rather than spend like $80 for one elsewhere.
Yeah it's nothing to worry about. A couple of my Manda orders have tape on it but the figure and box is in fine shape. It's just an extra detail.
I've been eyeing him but I'm not sure how older Revo's with the cut joints hold up.
Still really good and it actually holds up pretty well especially considering it's an older Revoltech. Just took him out recently myself and he's definitely stood the test of time. Also, considering Vash's actual height in-universe, he's actually in scale with Figma and Figuarts so there's also that.
Got in this guy today.
I was a little nervous posing him but after a while this skeleton impressed me. Though the instructions detailing all those crazy combinations is tempting me to get more of these guys in.
And a shot with Tigrex.
I'm still on the fence on getting the Iron version but this version has some really nice paintwork.
Snake and Commander Shepard are two characters that should be easy to pull off but always get fucked up. It's like a curse.
Just look at Figma.
That said, I think it looks good enough.
Not really. Kaiyodo still has a few Revoltech brands they seem to keep making more of. Think of it more as, the random properties they use to make will more likely go to VulcanLog. And I think Yamaguch is putting in the articulation into most of them.
Inheritance does suggest the source is dead, but the Japanese never quite grasp the English language. I'm pretty sure they translated the word 継承, which means more like to carry on, succeed.
森口あらん Aran Moriguchi [studio XELFLEX] is the sculptor, if anyone cares.
I see nothing to indicate the high price, besides low demand/low production number...?
Let's see, 3 different weapons, effect parts and is partly from sentinel so they have to raise the price just on sentinel's name alone. I mean I looks nice but I'm not familiar with the character and the price is a huge turn off to even thinking about ordering, maybe this discourage Union creative having Sentinel do collaborations with revoltech again.
Guys, I really don't think the Sentinel name alone raise prices. Sentinel stuff are expensive because they are higher quality and have like 5000 parts, use diecast, limited run, etc. Like if that's the case and you are getting just a Revoltech that looks like Yamaguchi made it, they would just let Yamaguchi make it and sell for the normal price.
just got my jizzy okimono horse. I'm always prepared for quality issues, but my horse is missing an entire fucking ear. what amateur shit is this? and who do i need to contact to get a replacement?
There's absolutely nothing expensive in it.
The GN-U Dou Goshogun had a fully articulated POM skeleton under its armor and that one was only 3000Yen.
You should get him dude. I own both lupin and jigen, and the only problem is with one of jigens arms pops off the peg at the cut joint, which makes posing a bit of a pain, but my gf bought me him used, sp I'm sire its an isolated incident. My lupin however is a total blast, the joints are a little different than what I'm used to but it works well with his design.
You can just look up a review if you want
an idea on how the joints work.
If the joint comes apart in the middle, put tissue inbetween it, clasp them back together, then tear out any tissue that juts out. This is more of a stopgap measure.
If you want better results, look for a transparent nail polish, coat the middle part of the joint, put it back together, then move it around as it dry a bit.
People suggest super glue, the catch being that, you have to instantly keep moving it until the glue settles and hardens, so that the material build up to provide extra friction is there, but the super glue itself doesn't bind the joint together but I've never dared try it, since the joints used for the skeletons are uniquely colored.
I personally have never tightened the joints on mine, just am more conscious with balancing its lower spine and hip.
that aside, I love the rust edition... I ended up getting it because I can't find any of the bone colored ones in physical stores. The texture and wash on this is a lot more convincing than the Kirin in some ways.
I found the tweet by the sculptor of Goshogun explaining the high price.
Basically, it's because of the higher number of paints and it has twice the number of parts than your typical Robot Revo. Along with the usual higher material cost, exchange rate, etc...
Mmm...I bet Yamaguchi could've done it with the normal amount of parts. I hope this becomes a lesson for UC to not let something like this happen again.
Luckly Baikanfu has a simple colour scheme.
Also the alternate colour is based on this.
Probably should have a pic of what I'm talking about.
Just ordered 2 MP Evas from Mandarake, my first time buying something there too
My other MP needs company. Desperately.
What are some of the best Revoltech figures out there?
Never bought one but I'd like to give my collection some more variety in toy brands.
Made this so might as well post it again and again...
Feel free to ask name of specific ones that interest you. They should all be easy to find and buy.
Part 2 of 2
For RevolMini they are all pretty much the same for structure so any of them are fine. Same for the Evas or MuvLuv mechs.
Should add Ultron and the soon to come out Venom Snake to this. Well I assume VulcanLog Snake will be awesome.
Late ass reply, sorry :|
I have the old anime version and I love him. I would like to eventually get the red coat version but you can't go wrong with either one
Although I heard the red coat has sillier faces
I find the knee joints on these a little too fragile.
anyone know what size revoltech joints the second set of arms(red) uses?
he's fucking here finally!
Loving the figure, excuse the phone pic
A couple of retarded design choices aside, I'm liking him more and more as time goes on. Really glad I skipped the legends at this point.
thank fuck i skipped the legends and figuarts one, revo ultron looks even more imposing than his onscreen appearance though i wonder what's up with the decision to make his arms like that
>the decision to make his arms like that
you mean the double revo joints? It allows him to reach all the way across his chest and behind his head. the rotation is a bit stiff though and they're pretty weak joints so be careful not to break them
I actually really like the his arms are set up. The shoulders are fairly un-frustrating considering how that double revol joint usually ends up, and the elbows are downright great. I don't miss ratcheting in them at all.
Heat up the whole shoulder area with everything attached. It will loosen up the hold on the revo joints and make the articulation smoother.
I am a little surprised Yamaguchi changed his usual setup and made the peg to the upper arm perpendicular rather than diagonal or parallel. Like almost everything else he has made in the past. You cannot rotate the upper arm like you used to be able to. It works fine, just a little counter intuitive when you are use to past Yamaguchi Revos.
>perpendicular rather than diagonal or parallel
That's one of the things I REALLY like, actually. I couldn't stand how raiden etc would hit themselves in the face trying to raise their arms.
mine came today, his articulations takes some time getting use to but goddamn he looks great
will there ever be final ultron and ultron drones revo?
I really want an Iron Legion figure, don't care who makes him, look how commercial it is!
i remember seeing some pics of ultron with assemble borg pieces and damn, i'm tempted to get them just to arm ultron with
I want more getter revoltechs
Why don't japs love getter anymore?
Because Ishikawa died? Nagai not really into it anymore? The story got too convoluted? (Go is a masterpiece)
Linebarrel guys are doing a new Getter, and Sentinel is sorda keeping the lights on the franchise. I think it's doing okay.
I want Legacy of all the Revo Getters though. I want more Renewal Getter 1, Go and Arc.
Got my Lupin and Jigen today. Looking forward to opening them and messing with them soon.
Jigen was labeled Item/A Box/B from Amiami, while Lupin was labeled as unopened/box damaged from Manda, but they seem to be unopened, and I don't see any sort of damage to either of their boxes.
Kinda off topic but since we're talking Getter, Studio HalfEye just showed off some pictures of their new Simple Change Getter 1. Looks pretty neat.
Got around to opening up Jigen. He's much lighter in weight than I thought he'd be, but damn I really like him.
I wish he came with a Revolcontainer since he has a bunch of small parts, but I guess the Legacy of Revoltech one doesn't have one.
I really love Yamaguchi's style. I know the Revoltech brand has changed lately (Vulcanlog, pure Legacy of Revoltech releases, no revolminis in sight, etc.),but I hope he never stops sculpting.
Kaiyodo makes Revoltechsn and Union Creative and Kenelephant distributes them. Union Creative now has full control of what figures they will release, and those are called VulcanLog now. They still use Revolver Joints, and they all seem to have Yamaguchi manage the articulation aspect of them. UC also gets other companies they distribute for get involved, like Sentinel, in making different VulcanLog.
Stuff that Kenelphant distributes are still called Revoltechs (Takeya, MOVIE, Character, etc.).
>tfw starting to notice bubbles on my Neo Getter's right horn
>tfw I think they might be increasing in number and size
This fucking sucks. Neo Getter is my favorite robots and this is the only toy of him I could afford
Anyone got any pics of Raiden with the Tamashii Thunder effects?
I only have a junker raiden I got for parts, but here. There's a ton of places to actually attach the clip-on pieces to, I'm just really sure what to do with the main christmas tree.
yes, I'm with you anon. I'm amazed they've been making this many, I can see they get out of stock on all sites, but I wonder if they even stock many of these at all. I'm not complaining, I'm buying every single one. I just don't want them to ever stop.
I dig it personally. I'm excited to see what the Getmachines look like.
This better fucking be real
if MF shuts them down because of some bullshit exclusivity rights I swear to christ
Yup, that's what it says on the right for sure, but I'm not sure what the "/" is supposed to indicate. Are the monsters included with yugi and kaiba? If s they better not be gimped little statues or something.
That would be a good idea. Particularly for monsters they wouldn't do.
I'd be hardpressed if anybody working revoltech can do more competent anime likenesses than MF. MF already has Yami on PO and DMG planned. I can imagine if it takes off they can work up to vanilla Dark Magician, Kaiba, and Joey. Wouldn't know if they could do Kaiba and Joey's respective Dragons, but they have been slowly getting more and more into the bigger stuff. If they could, I imagine they would so they could give Kaiba and Joey monsters.Anything beyond is a bigger question since Max Factory does not tend to stick and be dedicated to IPs that aren't current and popular anime.
Monsters that aren't Yugi's, Kaiba's, or Joey's star monsters would be a good idea.
>Gaia the Fierce Knight
>Curse of Dragon
>Black Luster Soldier
Cards that may not even be suitable for action figures would be nice enough to get somehow. Like Time Wizard, Scape Goat, Pot of Greed, Skull and Graceful Dice.
Red Eyes is. It was the ultra rare in his Starter Deck, centerpiece to his deck once he got in Duelist Kingdom, and was made to give him an obvious contrast with richboy Kaiba. It is by far his most popular monster, meta game aside. Hence all that direct support it got to make it more useful that Blue Eyes is now just starting to get.
The other two are just staples with one being a meta game star.
So I keep reading that Venom Snake hip joints are ball joints, so I think they are just straight up ball and socket joints. Like Mark 42 was. Looks like they are at a slight angle.
Got in Ultron. Thought I could take a chance with a few shots.
Also how does everyone feel about the new Revo bases? I'm still largely mixed about the claw being able to be taken apart since it can pop out of I wanted to re-adjust.
Ultron was a real surprise. He has a nice bulk to him and the only issue on mines is his right arm likes to pop out from the peg hole with part of his armor that comes with it.
As weird as it is to say, I sort of miss the old ones. Actual arm stands are ok, but there was something to be said for the old triangle ones. The new one's fine though, I just wish he had a back peg and not just the crotch one.
>Mine already broke.
Well, shit. I've barely used mine so far, but I thought they looked more durable than tamashii stands, which I've had that exact problem with before.
I had that problem with mine at first, but I've just been pushing it back into the socket whenever I rotate it and things have been good since. It's because of the floating armpit-sculpt piece, the peg only makes about half contact in the socket.
Watch this still not be enough leg articulation for some.
>but for more subtle stuff, it will probably yield some issues, just like Ultron
While Ultron is definitely fiddly, I actually managed to squeeze out some pretty decent walking and standing poses for him (no sitting ones though). It's all in the small tilts in the thighs, knees, and feet.
>for more subtle stuff,
You know the hips are ball joints, right?
With new revo joints all around for the rest, I don't see any problems popping up for this one. Shoulders looks like traditional style, at least I don't see why he would change it like Ultron.
I know, just seems that every time the legs go forward, they swing out very far, disallowing walking and sitting positions. Again, won't know till we have him in hand, just going by what we've seen in pics.
The shoulders are great because they actually match movie Ultron's shoulders should move unlike the Marvel Legends and (by the looks of it) the Figuarts. Also, it's great that he kept the entire bicep as one sculpt instead of a bicep cut since Ultron actually shifts his arms by the elbows while the entire bicep stays in place. That's aso something that not only the ML fucked up but even the Hot Toys made a mistake on. Yamaguchi seemed like a big enough fan of Ultron to really get those little details down for the figure.
I'll probably have the same look after being a demon and having to kill my own men.
