Hello Toy, im not Use to Japanese stuff
And I was thinking on Getting something from Patlabor
I saw some Revoltech stuff, it is good?
or there is something better?
what are my options and some body have something?
Revoltech. Good figures for the price, especially the reissues with the new joints.
>Great home-cooked meal
Bandai MG kits.
>Preordered Christmas Hamper
Supposedly Bandai are doing Robot Damashii Patlabor in the near future.
>Won the Powerball, bought a haute cuisine restaurant
Yamato 1/24 Labors. There is no competition, these are some of the finest collectables ever made.
Revoltechs are pretty good for completed figures. Get the movie version though.
However there are Robot Damashii that were shown. I doubt they will cancel it so might wanna wait. Unless you can find the Revo for an okay price.
Best: Yamato 1/24 scale Ingram (pic related)
These are literally the best Ingram you can get.
They come with all the gimmicks, open and adjustable cockpit, lights, that tiny tow cable at the crotch which is retractable, visor shield, Revolver Canon with fucking tiny rounds, extendable arms with articulate fingers and lots of die cast.
But they're bloody rare or very expensive if you can find them. Also it's difficult to find other toy lines to scale these with.
Next better: CM Corp Brave Gokin Ingrams
Pretty good for their size, with some nice gimmicks like openable cockpit and lights (certain pieces only). However rather expensive to get now.
Cheapest and Easiest to get: Model kits
Easily available, but older kits are pretty sucky (mostly because the rubber sleeves restrict articulation on the joints
2nd Cheapest: Revoltechs
Relatively limited articulation, and because it's PVC, has a somewhat gummy look (looks less sharp). But considerable if you're desperate.
Also they're the only line after the model kit that has the most number of different models (i.e. they have the Helldiver, Broken and Griffon)
Alternatively, wait for the Robot Damashi.
Bandai showed them at their previous Tamashii nation event, and they look somewhat decent.
Robot Damashii will run you about $40-50 dollars, be around 5-6" tall and have absolutely excellent quality for the size across the board.
It's the line that effectively killed Revoltech when it came to small-scale mech figures.
it didn't kill the Revoltech, since it focused so much more on Real Robot, while the Revoltech line usually had more Super Robots.
Now the SRC are probably partially more reponsible for Revoltech's trickling release of Super Robots.
Ingram and the other Labors are not that bad, since it was a different sculptor. The details were stamped on so they look just fine. 20-30 bucks I think it's worth owning.
Bear in mind that only the plastic & vinyl kits have some of the more exotic labors like Phantom and Reactive Suit Ingrams. Really hope the upcoming Damashii line will bring more variety of labors than the usual. TV/OVA ver. Peacemakers that doesn't suck will be nice.
