Figmas, Nendoroids and Revoltech
» no mechs this time

Post: #1

The Revoltech line started mostly with Mecha but started shifting most of their releases to humanoid designs when the Robot Damashii series started to steal some of it's thunder. Figma was released as more or less a counterpart to Revoltech that focuses on (mostly female) anime and game characters. Nendoroids are basically SD versions of Figmas. As opposed to larger and more detail-intensive 1/10 to 1/6 scale PVC and resin figures, these are cheaper and much more poseable while still retaining a respectable amount of detail.

I know a few members (Sforza, Trace-02, Immaterial, etc) here also have some of these figures. Feel free to post I'll post pics if you have some of your own. I'll upload mine later.

I'm intending this to be a general thread for these kinds of collectibles, either news on upcoming releases, reviews or just plain pictures. For now, here's some dirt on some new Revoltechs which should be released soon (tomorrow IIRC) - Vash and Wolfwood from Trigun.


Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers.
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave, may live forever.

Yeah I've been viewing those last night. The blast effects really works, they don't look like blobs of clear plastic.

Haha!

As one who now prefers poseable/articulated stuff over static stuff, here some observations I made with Figma and Revoltech.

Revoltech works better with mecha, really as their humanoids are not that perfect yet, well, the females anyhow. I guess its with the way their signature joint is designed or its a matter of QC issues. Tongue

Figmas are really for the female characters. Often good QC, nice accessories but can be a bit more fragile than Revoltech. Tongue

Just uploading some pics of the Revoltech Date Masamune i got a couple of months ago. Pretty happy with the figure as it's poseability is really good, with the exception of the simple swivel joints on the hips, and the number of accessories (read: swords) is ridiculous. The photos were taken to test some new equipment i got yesterday but i think i'll be using this thread to post pics of my non-mech figures.

@Clonezero
It's an effects base that doubles as a stabilizing stand. Without it, a lot of those pictures would've featured Masamune tipping over.


Since i'm having way too much fun with my new lighting rig, here's another set of pics. This time, it's Kagami Hiragi (unwittingly) cosplaying as Miku Hatsune, in that segment from the Lucky Star OVA.

Well, i guess calling it a rig might be a bit of a stretch. More like a setup only at the moment. It currently looks like this:

[Image: setup00.jpg]

Almost the same as what i've been using for most of my previous pics - a desk lamp overlooking a sheet of cartolina lightly sprayed with aerosol paint, only this time with more lights. What i've really been thinking was to build a frame or photo booth where i can mount lights on the sides and on top so that the figure/plamo is fully covered from all directions, with sheets of garlic paper or wax paper in front of the lights to help diffuse them a bit. As it is, i've yet to venture into the bodega in the back to look for materials.
