>>7492441Damn AY Optimus isn't coming out for a decade?Shit dude now I'll never get an AY Megs.
>>7492441>non-transforming TransformerLiterally what is the point? Especially when the transforming Transformers frequently have just as good-Or better-Articulation, often due to the wacky ass joints needed to transform in the first place.
>>7492798because it's funnow off to TFG with you
>>7492798>Especially when the transforming Transformers frequently have just as good-Or better-ArticulationFor some third party stuff sure, but the opposite is true for the vast majority of mainline stuff. It's a sea of 90 degree hinges, and you're lucky to get basic action figure stuff like universal ankles or even wrist swivels. I sort of wish it wasn't yet another optimus, but I'm down to see what yamaguchi does with it.
>>7492798Because some people just want the robot, without possible hindrances that come in the form of articulation being based around transforming.Yeah sure Seige and MP Prime are fine but can they suck their own non-existent dicks?Well the AY won't be able to either but he'll be able to cartwheel probably and that's still an improvement.
>>7492806This transforms and I'm sure it has just as much, or more, articulation than the AY.
>>7492821how much does it cost tho tffag
>>7492827It was around $80 on release. So about the same as AY stuff once you factored in shipping.
>>7492798Your transforming Optimus can do these poses?
>>7492441>yamaguchi is going with a studio ox look for this optimusMad psyched for this one. I always wanted some ox designs but the most 3p delivered on with that was primorion and carry. Are they using a new hip system for this one or the big revojoints? 2
The thread's going to be torn apart by transformers shitposting isn't it.This exact thing happened with the old revoltechs didn't it?
>>7492837Just dont give tfg fags any yous. Btw how's everyone's gambit holding up? Anyone find an alternative for the playing cards?
>>7492837why do they dislike this fig? im not a transformers fan but it looks really good
>>749282780 bucks, so same ballpark as the AYI still don't personally think that makes the AY redundant because it's a different style and the AY looks good in its own right, but if you just want an Optimus with extremely good articulation, the transforming one that exists is like the same priceI disagree with the guy who said transforming figures "frequently" have as good or better articulation as the AY will have though. That's not even close to true. Transformers with good articulation are very common now but "good articulation" in this case means almost always worse than the AY. Transformers that have extreme range and posability like AYs do exist but aren't the norm even among 3rd party figures or MPs.But for specifically Optimus, there is a figure that transforms with about the same articulation at about the same price.
>>7492842Stop trying to get people to buy your transforming piece of shit. No one cares faggot.
>>7492837It's like the early days of marvel stuff all over again. But really, I own like three different colors of the mold he's posting and I'm still getting the AY. We're in a fucking renaissance of super articulated robots and nobody can convince me that's a bad thing.>>7492839The playing cards that came with injustice harley are a little small, but he can hold them. Honestly I'm just waiting for somebody to make a purple throwing effect.
Still waiting for my Gambit but here is a nice photo reviewhttps://ganguriinuinu.blog.so-net.ne.jp/2019-04-09
>>7492843That was my first post in this thread and I don't give a shit what anyone buys but ok lol
>>7492830>>7492842Why you don't you factor shipping with the $80 one though? A rule of thumb of mine is that if a figure is 20 dollars apart from other then it's a different ballpark.Not gonna lie the $80 looks better but I'm not sure how big it is and therefore the shipping would turn me off.I don't even know why I'm saying this I don't even like transformers or going to buy the Revoltech one
>>7492798>>7492832This. Certain toys aim for different things and while modern TFs have decent articulation at various price range, they're not trying to be as articulated as this Revoltech (if you can call it that anymore).The interview does touch into this as the need to go further, that there was pressure to compete with Takara's incredible toys. One of which was to recreate the "NEVER punch" as he calls it.Yamaguchi's strength is that his priority is getting particular action poses and the articulation is just a side effect from achieving those iconic poses.
>>7492821what's this one called? is it still available? wont lie that does look pretty good.
>>7493286Maketoys Striker Manus. Dunno if he's still available, but there some KO's of it too.
>>7492441would i be able to take the head off of the fraulen revoltech asuka with out breaking it, would like to know before i try
>>7494339Yeah you can take the head off
>>7494346ok thanks. if you are tricking me i will tear your head off
>>7492447>>7492450This looks really, really nice. I hope they don't balls up the paint on it like they did with that other recent Eva figure.
>>7494849same, that face paint fuckup ruined him for me
The Kotobukiya MSG weapons go so well with the Revo Evas.
People still remember Darkness and Bitchblade? I like the designs but I barely read a few comics of them.Anyway, post characters/franchises you want on Amazing Yamaguchi form.
Any info on assemble borgs?
>>7500028Personally I want the anime version since it missed that window of getting action figures because it's new to getting one for old and nostalgic sake, Good art style to adopt just like the symbiotes are for AY, but the popularity is not big enough everywhere to release the required number of figures to keep price low.>>7500058News have been dead, the void between WFs I suppose.
>>7500028This big guy>>7500379The anime is any good?
>>7500379>anime versionand why did they even make this? It had fuck-all to do with the comics, they didn't even namedrop Sara as having been a previous user or anything, and for the supposed artifact itself, well.... turn the glove into a mask and Jim Carrey was in that film. It was a mainly unoriginal comic idea to begin with.>>7500028With the old MAC figures selling for $10 or less on eBay, interest is probably very low, and the articulated Toy Biz one looked like shit. Super articulation never mixes well with near-naked women.
>>7501443>and why did they even make this?So greasy otaku can fap over it, of course.
Oh boy Yamaguchi is on the move >https://twitter.com/fuikitodoki/status/1118887064487911424The takeaway is he's back to making something "irregular," got permission to print sculpts out, and is doing his own presentation to Kenelephant, the guys who release AY.This is similar to how he used to do things with his Revoltech and Revolmini releases. Yamaguchi wasn't involved in the selection process with AY as much as he used to be. I'm guessing it'll be one of the Japanese IPs but who knows how long it takes from presentation for distributor/licensing company to finished product...AY line must be doing really well if they can take more risks like this, Assuming it's something obscure. Or it could just mean not a popular western property. Any educated guesses? What's "irregular" nowadays?
>>7500028The Maxx, Scud, the Goon, Vlad from Hack/Slash, Etrigan, Swat Kats, basically characters is a more cartoony or extreme style without visible or human faces since that is what Yamaguchi is good at.>>7501388>The anime is any good?Depends on your tolerance for mid-2000's action anime. It was so-so with decent animation and character designs.>>7501443>Super articulation never mixes well with near-naked women.The Revo Queen's Blade girls are pretty good.
>>7501795>The Maxxyou my nigga
>>7500028I remember trying to read witchblade and dropped it 3 times. each time when I reached the 40th book. I was told it gets better right after but holy fuck that volume kills all my interest every time.>>7501388it's incredibly boring and not lewd or gory. has nothing to do with the comic if you're curious. the designs are amazing though.>>7501758fate.
>>7501987>the designs are amazing though.Yeah I only brought it up because of that. The Cloneblades, the red power-up form, all fantastic. What else matters for wanting action figures really? Like if it was the other way around, good story shit designs, I don't see the appeal in owning an action figure of it, just watch or read the media.>>7501388I only remember the jokes about how big the main character's boobs are, and had a depressing ending? Thought the idea of a struggling single mother as a main character in a crazy battle anime was interesting. I only know bits of the source material through the live action TV show hahaha so I cared very little of the universe. Hindsight it's strange this anime exists at all.
>>7501758>The takeaway is he's back to making something "irregular,"rilakkuma was a hit surprise back then. so im hoping this means revoltech gudetama.
maan the new gambit is bad, so many QC issues>loose faceplate, even coating the peg with superglue doesn't do shit >loose left thigh ball joint, can be put off easily and doesn't snap like the right ball joint>a really floppy and thin plastic for the right coat ribs joint (especially near the 'robe' joint hole)>cards accessory stressed with white mark on the very first attempt i put it on the hand>bullshit shin swivel with revo join inside, the one like capt america was perfect, why did the change itlegit the worst QC i ever got on a figure
>>7502303>why did the change itClearly the switch between ball joint and revo joint has to do with what joint the knee is using. The ratchets are too strong to be used with a nearby ball joint so they all must be ratchets. And Gambit has some reasons for revo knees like thin figure and added swivel for posing.The biggest issue is how soft overall the plastic is. PVC can be harder but lately they went back to super gummy plastic. It causes most of your problems there. In addition it makes reshaping by heat not as effective because the plastic tends to go back to the shitty state again.
>>7501795>Swat KatsDamn it, I didn't realize that I want this until now!
>>7501758>The takeaway is he's back to making something "irregular"Optimus was pretty irregular to me, I can't wait to see what it could be.
I wouldnt say he's trash. "Advanced posing difficulty"
>>7504253Even though you fucked this up. It aint half bad.
Gambit is actually my favorite, he just has the aesthetic I want him to have. He takes time to learn but is worth it
What's the consensus on the kt project knight? I heard it was hard to pose and not fun, but that horse looks super nice, and plate armor figures aren't exactly being produced by anyone else.
>>7505595Small and somewhat disappointing. Some of the disappointment is down to my own personal hype of a plate armour knight figure but the size and limited articulation really put a damper on that. I knew there wasn't going to be Yamaguchi levels of articulation but the front skirt pieces really could have been done better. I'll have to get him back out of the box to give him a second chance without the hype but might end up selling him off.
>>7505595>hard to poseNo, not like the angle of joints are weird so it takes time to learn type of deal, it just doesn't work. The joint setup is really simple, easy even. The ball joints of the shoulders pops off constantly, the frequency of which varies so you need to be lucky. It's shallow ball socket joint combined with the tough ratchet joint next to it that makes the shoulder articulation almost meaningless. You just use the ball joint and hope it doesn't pop out half the time. The torso joint is the same setup but all you can do with it is rotate at the waist.My solution was to make a ring of super glue at the rim of the socket and it seems to be working. You could also be unlucky and have any of the four elbow and knee pads stuck/broken/loose, another issue we hear often.Size is okay, it's like a figma. Any bigger it'll look off with the horse anyways, The knight isn't bad but any usual methods of jointing a revoltech would've made it 5 times better. The horse is a masterpiece so as long as the armor doesn't ruin it that should be okay.I think someone will copy, if one could call it that, this idea and make their own knights and samurais action figures. If not Bandai then GSC.
>>7505763>I think someone will copy, if one could call it that, this idea and make their own knights and samurais action figures. If not Bandai then GSC.I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A fantasy version of Little Armory.Tradition Weapon sets like the guns and the figures can be various knights/fantasy tropes.
>>7505838I honestly think Bandai will do it, they're going through changes since becoming blue logo Bandai and I can see them doing more fun stuff for the sake of being fun. Action figure of a certain caliber can't be sold cheap in Japan so I don't think figma will fly whereas Bandai have the resources to do it at the 5000 yen mark. Do several figures, weapon sets, the works. They shown interest in original IP like the 30MM and a few capsule and blind box lines so it could lead to something similar for the other departments. I mean, there's no equivalent of the Buddha Revoltechs or Table Museum figmas for Bandai. Historical gear figuarts could be a nice area to explore.
Naughty Woody is naughty.

>>7505595That horse looks pretty weird.
>>7506769>>7506777>>7506814What revoltech is this?
When does this come out?
>>7506892Weird. Is this what KOs are doing now?
>>7506785And I'd rather shit content than the usual bitching. Makes a change at least.
>>7506904You're telling me it's a bootleg?
>>7506946>You're telling me it's a bootleg?Nah, that's the"irregular" figure Yamaguchi was talking about.
>>7506946Well it ain't official, so it's either a custom that went as far as making a custom box or a weird KO.
>>7506946Jokes aside it's clearly not a real release for many reasons. Reusing sculpts and being MCU out of nowhere for example, not to mention it looks pretty bad from the added parts. Because MCU is so big in China I can see someone going through the trouble of using the AY Spider-Man body to make this thing. I don't think it's a custom only because of the box, but maybe they go that far now.
>>7506892>>7506946Wow. They made a bad figure significantly worse.
>>7506946Oh and I forgot to mention how shit the box looks from the photo to the lack of any logos. Look at >>7506286If it was a custom, more effort would be put into it...?
>>7492845It sucks that Gambit turned out so bad. IF you get one that doesn't break instantly, it just looks terrible no matter what you do.
>>7507248mine didn't breakyou just have mexican hamhands
>>7507194>Kaiyodo doing high-up Jump propertyHaha, yeah right. Zetman was already miraculous but only because nobody cared.
>>7505595More of a display piece than an action piece but there is a range of defects on em. I've been successful with action poses. Sadly my photos are on other comp.
>>7507194He said "irregular" and u kno damned well what's irregular.
>>7507456I'm wondering if it's irregular for him, the AY line, or Kaiyodo? Because each of those ventures into different possibilities.It could be more Sengoku Basara for all we know, the guy loves the franchise. Any fighting/beat 'em up style games entry will do really.
>>7507456didnt even care about that game after being hyped and finally getting to play it, the gameplay sucked but ill buy revoltech ashura right out of preorders announcement.
if they can deliver on this paintjob, and its a sturdy build like wolverine or captain america, this might just be one of the best Yamaguchi releases. It plays up to his style and strengths I think, plain humanoid-tech looking body with modular accessories.
>>7505141Source on the robot in the back?
>>7506287>rhodeynow we talking
>>7507497Before AY the Revo line was much more varied. Like we got a Drifters figure long before the anime was even announced, made the first Raiden figure, and a lot of other niche figures that never got something in another line. The only thing it consistently released was Eva.I think it might mean we're going back to more Japanese IPs that don't have a lot of figures already.
>>7507565Not him but>https://myfigurecollection.net/item/397490
>>7507586I hope so. They certainly stop taking risks after the Revol Mini because they're afraid of making 6-7000 yen obscure revoltechs and not selling. Vulcanlogs sure did show them how to fuck it up. The foreign market extra push kept the AY going so far so I wonder if the Japanese IPs have to be ones popular overseas too. I want them to do some manga only characters but I think it's too much of a gamble now.
>>7507670got a feeling this guy would sell. i havent even read the manga but if he comes with all those details, im in.
>>7507670>manga only charactersHold on there's an anime on the way!? Well I guess people have been reading this, Good.>>7507676This is just his base form, he has a giant arm berserker mode so the figure can have all the Assemble Borg type modular parts to mess around with.
i want samurai showdown revoltechs
>>7507557Paint looks nice and shiny on this final version. I'm not sure why anons have been worrying about that, they have the most experience with Iron Man figures in Japan.
>>7507557Besides the obvious Hulkbuster, what other armors are popular enough to be made in the AY line?
>>7507770honestly, i dont need more iron man from AY after this upcoming one. I'd rather see him do Hulk, Thanos, Thor or Colossus or Dr Doom.
>>7507770War Machine. Iron Patriot
>>7507784i'll take a war machine if it means a brand new bulked out tanked out sculpt from Yamaguchi but iron patriot is an easy pass.
>>7507784I would take AY WM any day but it's a bit redundant because modern comics WM is pretty much MCU WM similar to one around the WM Mark 2. Maybe swap parts for Punisher version to add some play value? Much like how AY IM feels like an upscale Mini Mark 6 I would like an upscale of the Mini WM because it was a great toy.
>>7507776This.I need a hulk and a thor
>>7507557dont hold ur breath anon, if i learn anything from AY is that since deathstroke, they've been using this very gummy kind of plastic for their figurei doubt it will be like capt america, since his body is made off hard plastic
>>7507709What the fuck is Samurai Showdown?I've only heard of Samurai Shodown
>>7508275What the fuck ive been spelling it showdown my whole life
>>7508088They went back to the soft plastic? Well I'm glad I cancelled my Iron Man preorder. Wasn't that excited for him anyway.
>>7507709>>7508275>>7508485What are you talking about? a new franchise? I've only heard of Samurai Spirits
>>7508820a haohmaru and a genjuro revoltech with heavy slash fx or cutout card for his super...
I like they picked a scenery for the backdrop this time and not random comic panels.
What happens when you fail to integrate symbiote biology into the suit.
I'd still rather buy a monochromatic version instead. The metallic paint they use always seems to soften the details.
>>7509576Yamaguchi touched on that before, pointing out degradation is from using PVC, comparing them to the ABS figuarts.https://twitter.com/fuikitodoki/status/1087918254813782017Probably why he wanted Optimus to be in ABS,Not sure what material is used for the white early sculpts but sounds like it's something else.
>>7509540That tilted head was a nice touch.
>>7509695>>7509696>>7509698That is pretty cool. Not sure I'll buy it but it is cool. But then I maintain the EvaEvo Revoltechs are the absolute apex of (relatively) affordable toy design. They come with a tonne of stuff, they're really striking and wonderfully poseable.
>>7509695Still not convinced this is in the actual movie.>https://www.evastore.jp/products/detail/12408Over 10k eh?>>7509717>affordable toy designNot this one. They're really confident anything Eva will sell.At least the other reveal >>7492447 is Unit-01 close to TV colours and should be under 8000 yen.
>>7509745Oof, that's a big pill to swallow. That said I was more talking about the "standard" Eva design which usually goes for about £30 new or even less on Mandy, I can understand why something that size would be more expensive (though maybe not THAT much more).I still want all the figures though, even though 3.0 left a bad taste in my mouth the various wacky designs they come up with are so good and feed nicely into the absurd Gerry Anderson-esque "headcanon" I'm constructing around my Eva figures.
>>7509745Adding to that, would one or two Angels really not sell as well as this expensive 08? No one will buy a Sachiel Revo? >>7509749Most of the line are reissues of a pretty old design (Revo No.100) so they can release them relatively cheap.Being New sculpt, this 08 is complicated, and I think they're making a much limited number than the other guys, price is understandable. But if you ask what's more popular, an evolved 01 from a alternate timeline novel, 01 from a sword exhibit drawing, or something from(?) the final movie, then that's a head-scratcher. Happy we're getting new sculpts, but the choices are confusing.
>>7509576I'd buy a shameless recolor like this in a heartbeat, I don't care if it's not accurate.>>7509772>Adding to that, would one or two Angels really not sell as well as this expensive 08? No one will buy a Sachiel Revo?I'd buy the FUCK out of some posable angels. It's amazing the closest thing we've gotten from one of the biggest animes ever was some candy toys and like a bust that came as an accessory with some of the revoltechs.
I got this Jigen from Yahoo Auction Japan today. Are the Japanese feds going to come after me?
>>7510067>closest thing we've gottenThere was a Sofubi series from Bandai iirc around the time of the TV show that were pretty cool. Not to mention Sachiel plastic model that was poseable.Bandai had some prototypes action figures but disappeared to toy purgatory. It's weird but at the same time in Japan there are almost no toys of the enemy unless it's Gundam or Ultraman...
>>7509696i applaud yamaguchi for openly notifying what kind of materials this will be out of. i think the body will be out of the same kind of gummy plastic the eva revos have been while the machine gun block arms are going to be abs. yamaguchi is a bro, he doesnt like the material and will openly state so even though he probably worked on this.
>>7511081He did.>https://twitter.com/fuikitodoki/status/1121253865679011840PVC body, and the ring and arms are ABS.He placed in joints directly into the 3D data from the film teaser. Kind of interesting but it shows in some places like the blatant thigh cut swivels. It feels like a rush job.
What the fuck kinda holster is this? You can’t even put a match in there.
>>7511715Or a gun for that matter.
AY OP PO should be going up sooner or later.>https://www.amazon.co.jp/o/ASIN/B07R2CJGDG/pick-item-22
>>7492441Does anybody have a source on the TBA Revo Geos?
>>7511731Wouldn't it be funny if he turned out to have worse articulation than Maketoys' Striker Manus, despite not having an alt mode?
>>7511731why is he 90 buckaroos on bbts? thats like 10 more than gambit
>>7511851They're all jacked up prices on BBTS. Optimus is more expensive than most AY to begin with.
How bad are the quality of the 20 bucks' Revo's littering eBay?
>>7511872apparently he's an inch shorter than deathstroke, but theyre charging more for less material? is this a transformers tax?
>>7511912>apparently he's an inch shorter than deathstroke, but theyre charging more for less material? is this a transformers tax?I mean he could have more material, height doesn't dictates the price maybe he is wider or some sorts? Or the engineering?
>>7511941The IP, different engineering and thiccer shape. Makes sense.
>>7511715>>7511717Stop posting or go and post all these shit pictures in your own thread
>>7511953He's not wrong this is some straight cringe
Damn is this a bad time? My woody just came in the mail today. Waiting for buzz to release so he's got a friend.
>>7511951Oh I’m sorry I thought this was Revoltech General. Oh wait, it is?!>>7511953This anon understands. >>7512037No not at all! I’ve thought about getting a Buzz too, while he may not come with a ‘meme face’ he’ll make a great addition to my collection.
>>7512190>Only one person could dislikes my shitNo wonder you post cringy shit like that, you lack some serious self awareness
>>7512197>Oh I’m sorry I thought this was Revoltech General. Oh wait, it is?!I love this revoltech figures!!! >>7506772
>>7512237Man just fuck off and sulk elsewhere if you won't hide his posts.
>>7512265Fuck off I'll do the fuck I want
>>7511912Plastic is all different so that could do it too.But more importantly, assembly would be completely different, probably more parts too because none of the shares joints are being used. It's like what happens when a company that's not Bandai is making a RD that's not a Gundam IP. Even for them those RDs are more expensive. Similar to how pricey Sentinel stuff gets, there might be less number of units being produced.
>>7512239At least unlike him, you contribute to the thread, right? ;^)
>>7512508Yes with discussion of revoltech toys, you know there's more ways to contribute to a thread than shitty images done to death YEARS ago (infinitely better I may add) with a meme toy that is literally 5+ years old right? :^}
>>7511715I think they do it like that to avoid people being able to put actual gun toys in there as Disney probably doesn't want that kind of image associated to the character. I bet there's a clause somewhere.
I really like this pose for some reason. Plus nice to see how far the wrists can swing (one ball joint?) and point the rifle in different ways.40 P.O.A. it says, and mix of PVC, ABS, metal pins and screws. Hands and some joint areas use PVC perhaps? Anons seem to be bummed he's shorter, but still 155mm, that's about the height of SH Figuarts so not like he's small. There's no reason to be the same height as other AY since this is a giant robot and have nothing else to scale with. With the regular discounts price isn't so bad either.I hope Yamaguchi keeps making robots, TF or not, Revo jointed or not, on a regular basis.
>>7512631Then discuss them and stop crying baby.
>Optimus size is 155mmAre you serious, guys? Wolverine, Psylocke, Spider-Gwen and Carnage are described as 155mm too, I got Carnage and he is 165mm and I'm sure Wolverine and the rest aren't the same height.
>>7512832Sometimes it feels like a lot of toy collectors value size and weight over articulation and engineering.Not so much here, but in other generals
>>7512832This is the first Revoltech I've ever pre-ordered (I've only collected Figuarts, Black Series and Marvel Legends up until now), but, yeah, unless you're looking for a Prime that the same size as the G1 toy or is supposed to be much bigger to properly scale with other 6-inch figures, then who cares if he's "only" 6 inches tall, especially if the toymaker is being pretty forward with what size/scale it is?
>>7511731Is there any difference with this one and the original?
>>7514183Not sure how everyone gets the size information but amiami had approx 155mm and Kaiyodo's own site had approx 15cm, so it's around there. BBTS was completely off to the point of having wrong unit conversion. >5.50 inches (6.10cm)They wanted to say 6.1 inches because that's 155mm? They wrote the units backwards and took off the 1 from 15.5? Wrong on so many levels.>>7514237>first Revoltech I've ever pre-orderedI wouldn't call this a Revoltech anymore, besides the sculptor there's no element left that's the hallmark of the toyline. It sounds like it will be similar to a Robot Damashii.
>>7514332Original? the old Revoltech Prime? Uhhhh YEAH EVERYTHING except for the obvious, subject, sculptor, and company.
>>7514332It's an entirely new figure.It's not the original re-released with some tweaks.
>>7511845You're still trying to shill that, huh?
Naughty Woody is now Evil Woody.
Finally got Gambit in. I can see why there were many complaints but it really just boils down to getting good at posing. Even for the avid AY collector, his joint scheme is vastly different from all of the others, and that’s primarily due to the trench coat. Overall, I like it.
>>7514758That looks so cool, I wonder if they’ll make a Nightcrawler.
>>7514758>Even for the avid AY collector, his joint scheme is vastly different from all of the others? Not really, he's almost the same as Carnage and Deathstroke with the extra 2 joints of the long coat.He inherits the flaws of past AY too, face plate is too loose like Psylocke and the shoulder blade articulation spreads out too far for no good reason like Deathstroke. Otherwise another great entry. I only wish the shins were shorter so the body balance can look better.>>7514782IIRC the supervisor dude might have mentioned him among a bunch of characters I thought would never fly in Japan. Gambit was among them for his "if it was up to me" list. Or maybe Gambit was popular enough of a character already. It looks like the success has granted some freedom just like how Yamaguchi might be pitching in his own choices, so who knows. There are other X-Men character they should make before him though.
>>7514807I’d be in for a Cyclops with optic blast effects myself. I really do enjoy Gambit though, no complaints here.
>>7514344>>7514356I've got the original sitting in front of me, and I'm just not seeing any difference though, even if it is a new figure
>>7514958so the issue of the face plate is a legitimate complaint? What about the broken shoulder? I'm used to revoltechs, but held off on Gambit due to those two reasons, as well as the neck part being a weird floating part.
So i'm about to buy this beautiful, beautiful buterfly!Anything i should know before getting it? I just want to create my own articulated-clawed-tentacle-beauties to keep my other figures... Company.Might get more than one to use the extra claws, can't have too many teeth in it's mouth.
So I recently bought AY Gambit and while I think the figure looks good I don't think I am really a fan of the Revo articulation system. Do you think Iron Man is going to be different/different enough to give it a try?
>>7515768If you can't tell the differences with the old figure infront of you then I suggest you go get your eyes tested, sounds like you might have some serious vision issues.
>>7515923From what little you can gather pre-release, he looks like Wolverine/CA/Batman style leg articulation, butterfly joint style side-torso like Batman, and peg-hinge-ball socket joint shoulders like the female AYs.So take that as you will.>>7515917>What about the broken shoulder?That depends on your luck. I don't think anons had a perfectly fine one and then broke it on their own. Maybe not realizing it was stuck, but most cases seem to have been broken out of the box.Face plate, the problem is the small peg and how soft the plastic is, so it gets loose easily. You can work around it though so not a real issue.
>>7515917The standard face plate falls out on mine while posing the head at more extreme angles. The grimacing face however, is super snug. Aside from the left shoulder pad popping off occasionally, I haven’t experienced any breakage. The floating neck piece is just another moving part that you have to be mindful of while posing. That’s all.
>>7516081>The floating neck piece is just another moving part that you have to be mindful of while posing>>7515917Yeah exactly, can't say it any better than that. Making a big deal out of it is idiotic at this point. You might as well complain about having to adjust the shoulder pads and knee pads after moving the arms and legs. >>7516081>The grimacing face however, is super snug.That's because it was packed separately so the plastic wasn't compressed as the connected piece was. Heat up the normal face and let it cool on its own it should be closer to the other one.
>>7515921he comes 100% unassembled and you need to dip the parts in hot water before you insert the joints otherwise GG on getting them in - at least that was the case on my copy. Be aware of that too because that brain piece on the top in the image is not air/water tight at all and water can get inside it. A lot of his parts are quite chunky and only have 2 to 4 places to add joints, so sometime that can be a little limited. Otherwise it's a really fun set and he is quite large when fully built. I got mine brand new for $60 shipped from japan and felt he was 100% worth it.
>>7516310Good to know, Anon. Did disassembling/changing pieces around became easier after the first time?Do you happen to know if others like the Acid Worm also need warm-up before assembling?Thank you for all the info, Anon.
>>7516688all of them need the parts warmed up before assembling unless the parts already have the joints installed. Like Acid Worm/Torture mania etc the main figure has joints already installed but the extra parts need to be warmed up before use. Honestly best case to do with all assemble borgs is just dunk them all in some boiling water from the microwave for like 5 seconds each, jab a joint in, let it cool, pull the joint out, go to the next piece. Takes time but makes life hell of a lot easier.
>>7500028really anything form 40k would be great
>>7516938That's very helpful, thanks for the tip.I guess i'll follow my plan and get Hades Pod to feel how the assembling feels (with proper hot water), than move on to the humanoid figures.Thank you again for the help, Anon.
>>7516996That'd be amazing. I'd definitely want Space Marines (loyalist and traitor), and Genestealers would rock too.
Do you think Kaiyodo will ever go into making lifelike human action figures using the digital face painting technology?They seem to be finally moving into 3D printing and digital sculpting (selling 3D prints as "garage kits" is kind of bull shit though) but still are dependent on fully covered hand painted figures for pretty much all of their products. They are making some good moves like ABS plastic action figure and RevoGeo capturing various aspects of wild life but I feel like they are missing out on a lot of potential subjects that would make great action figures. Not necessarily the same thing other companies are making, other films domestic or foreign, new or classic, etc etc. Even in gaming where modern graphics have made them very lifelike and difficult to represent with consistency by hand painting in mass.Or should Kaiyodo not even try and leave all that to their competitors? What characters or persons do you wish to see and think is the kind of stuff Kaiyodo would make?
I just got the Amazing Yamaguchi Venom, and he's a wonderfully large lad. But I recall there was some trick or hack to getting better neck articulation? anybody know what I'm talking about?
>>7519410You replace the single 6mm joint in his head with the spare double 6mm joint. The head looks floaty but you get an extra point of articulation. You need to heat up the plastic to get the joint in and out.
>>7507670I just read what's available of the manga because of your post, it was pretty great. Thank you. I'd definitely buy a Jyuuzo Revo.
>>7505595>plate armor figures aren't exactly being produced by anyone else.Anon...
What are the maor differences between the authentic Wolverine and the bootleg one?
I hope the next female AY will be something tactical looking. I thought Endgame BW SHF would satisfy that itch but shoulder range wasn't as good as I hoped to be.He did spider and ninja, remaining Yamaguchi's repertoire are robots(or cyborgs) and paramilitary anyways.
>>7522587>Boring military stuffMCUfags go and stay go.
>>7522886So they made her look like an AY LMAO???
>>7522870>>7522886Put the shoulderpads on joints, make some of her parts a smidge more angular, tidy up the paint and free up the joints a bit and I could almost buy this being an off day Yamaguchi sculpt.
>>7522877Yeah because the comics have none of those mercenary types, oh wait...
>>7522870>>7522886OH NO NO NO
>>7522870What are these anyways? Assuming it's the same guy as the Iron Spider. Horrible customs? This doesn't even look like an AY was used as a base. Like I don't get the point for this particular one compared to turning AY Spider-Man into MCU Iron Spider.Turn AY Psylocke into comic black leotard Ms Marvel or something.
>>7523803These are just shitty bootlegs, you can find it on Aliexpress.
I donno if it's something he's modeling just for fun, but yamaguchi posted a gundam.
>>7524293He posted before, probably the same file updated.It's practice work + for fun, as he is still figuring out Zbrush. This makes me even more eager for Yamaguchi to do SRW OG mecha but that's Banpresto so it's just as unlikely as Gundam since they're all Bandai.
>>7523899It still boggles me why someone made this Captain Marvel, let alone thought people will pay money for it.
>>7522886dem hips and forehead
>>7522870This looks like a nightmare, reminds me of the dancing corpse in evil dead.
>>7522886>>7522870Bootlegs like Dasin really will be at the point where they can start cranking out characters other lines haven't reached yet like Dr Doom and people will buy em.
>>7522870>>7522886Yikes, that's pretty bad. The quasi-realistic sculpting and painting combined with the appalling imitation of Yamaguchi's style just looks awful.
>>7528925>appalling imitation of Yamaguchi's styleIs that what this is? I thought a bootlegger tried to sculpt from nothing and failed miserably. As i can't tell if this have any components from real figures.Or maybe he took the bad scaling of the open face from Spider-Gwen to heart? How did the head end up this small??
>When RevoGeo started I thought collaboration with AY would be cool for Ant-Man, include a semi-poseable smaller figure in scale with the ant>Just realized Bandai have done it with the Endgame rush of old and new releases.Missed opportunity for sublines synergy if you ask me.
>>7531016And Wasp from this version looks neat too.
Anyone have this guy? I was interested in him as I love Asuras in Buddist and Hindu mythology but forgot about it until recently. Found one for $60 and am highly contemplating it.
Some of my Deadpool's paint got off. What's the best way to cover the black scratches? I already have a bootleg version if that helps somehow.
>>7531016>>7531024as popular as the mcu shf antman is i dont think a comic antman would have sold that well on its own to start making anyone want to get a giant sofubi of an ant. if anything, the sofubi ant could have benefitted from the shf antman... but then again really, any of the insect sofubi would make for a good display with shf antman.
Would Revoltech have lasted this long without all the pelvic thrusting?
>>7531501>giant sofubi? RevoGeo isn't soft vinyl figure it's mostly PVC like any other Revo, but with more focus on sculpt and paint over articulation.True, I don't think the popularity is there either, comic one doesn't even look like a Kamen Rider as much as the MCU one, which I think is why Bandai gave him so much love.Ant with our without wings for RevoGeo will probably sell pretty well though so if they did it Yamaguchi might as well make something to go along with it. The company seems to think the RevoGeo will do well. And so far AY seem to sell no matter how known the character was prior. Except for Magneto but the big and heavy cape probably caused that(maybe Batman, similar reason). Yes there are other characters they should make first. Personally I want someone with a bare-bones costume besides the spiders, but Cyclops will work better for that.
do newer revoltechs have a risk of plasticiser?
>>7531291Get the proper one
What do when the monoshaft joints (like the hips on EVA figures) get loose?
So about a month ago I posted that my Firebrand came defective. Well Amiami finally sent out a replacement part and it works perfectly fine now. My MvC display finally grows!
>>7533757Ah, happy to see you got replacement, from amiami no less.
>>7533709I have both and the actual one has paint scratched off.
Haven't been in the loop for awhile and was thinking of getting gambit. What's this about him not being a good release? Is the QC that bad?
>>7534686Things that seem to be universal>the smiling head is loose like psylocke'sStuff I've seen that seems to be one off>shoulderpad balljoints breaking>hip balljoint mismolded so the leg pops off>coat balljoints breakingMine seems to be relatively fine and it's one of my favorites, but it definitely seems like the AY line's QC has been slipping for a while now.
>>7535231>the AY line's QC has been slipping for a while now.Iron Man is going to be such a mess.
>>7535279I really hope not, but I could see it.
>>7535231>shoulderpad balljoints>coat balljointsLike the ones used for Wolverine's shoulderpads? Those are horrible.
>>7535231>slipping for a whileDeathstroke was the best figure they've made to date, and that was just before Gambit.I'm not sure what happened in between besides Yamaguchi possibly being biased towards old men.
>>7536273I think QC depends on how many they produce each batch, plus the presence of structural weak points of course. The bar for rejection goes down when they can't afford to throw away too many as poor quality. So the popular characters might suffer more QC problems.Another thing caused by improving sales might be the shift towards softer PVC, because this makes assembly less problematic, less breakage because the plastic is not as brittle. Downside is the connection points like joints and pegs are looser because the plastic warps over time.I wish they go back to harder PVC because user-end there was no real problem.
>https://twitter.com/fuikitodoki/status/1127120441644969984Yamaguchi really pumped for making a caped character. "Spawn, Superman or Thor" he says. Doing presentation just with the cape so that sounds like he's trying for Spawn? If it involves something unique about the cape to present. Or he's trying some new method.I think Superman and Thor will happen eventually for sure.
Is there a way to tighten loose joints?
>>7536973>https://twitter.com/fuikitodoki/status/1127120441644969984GOD HE WOULD NAIL A SPAWN.
>>7537090I heard superglueing them is a good idea.
>>7524293God i wish they'd do more mecha stuff as well as AY
>>7537258I feel like someone like him should be doing side jobs sculpting for different brands, but he is a company man all the way.
>>7536973Hopefully its Superman. I've been aching for a good figure of him for years.
>>7536973Please be spawn.Fuck thor and superman is a boring ass mary-sue
>>7537327Superman would be that ugly ass new costume anyway. There was nothing wrong with the classic one, it's just more of DCs modern garbage.
>>7537327>https://twitter.com/fuikitodoki/status/1127120441644969984So he's making a cape and hinting about how it could be one of those three...? I want a Spawn yamaguchi most of all but with the Endgame train running strong, it most probably is Thor. Hats off to them if they go for Spawn though, truly a fanboy's toy line.
>>7536973Really hope it's thor, I wanna be done with my marvel collection already
>>7536973Supes and Thor would both be fantastic, even if Supes will be in his shitty Nu52 outfit.Spawn would have a great body but I think his cape would have way too many parts to it like Batman's did. I'd still like to see him try, though.
>>7536973Please be Spawn. Thor and Superman will both get a thousand other figures eventually but Todd isn't interested in making articulated Spawn figures
>>7537540A rep for McFarlane actually confirmed after the announcement that the Fortnite articulation is going to be utilized linewide that a super articulated Spawn is coming sooner than later.
>>7537517It's not hinting, it's real inner thought of what he wants to do...which is strange to hear. Like if it was happening (at the moment) he wont tweet about it. Doing a presentation (to Kenelephant?) means he is trying to convince them to make it happen. Beong just the cape might mean nothing only because the body will probably be the same format as before so he can show that later.The most he have done to hint something was showing a pose of that character with a different revo. Which is barely a hint at all. If it't something really in development, he's not allowed to reveal anything until company or license holder deems it so, It's also possible because Yamaguchi doesn't know comics well, he's not aware of the difficulty of getting that license, but surely it has come up several times because Spawn is one of those fan choices for him to make. But like >>7537542 said since the dreator company is making one they might not want to have another company doing one right now.This tweet might be a means to gauge reaction, if you want to be cynical. I think caped characters in general are not seen as big sellers.
>>7537542Will he be snuck in the Mortal Kombat 11 line like how Todd snuck in Spawn into the Soul Calibur 2 line years ago?And yes, we are allegedly getting Spawn in MK11 soon along with Terminator, Joker, and Ash.
I really need to know how to tighten loose joints. Is it true supergluing them helps? Is it supposed to be a certain area you apply it to?
>>7537624I don't think he cares about how easy or difficult getting a license can be, he just wants to make figures he thinks looks good.
>>7537944Ash has been debunked already by Bruce Campbell himself.Not that they couldn't do what Poker Night did and have Ash without Bruce involved or even in-the-know but without him no one's going to care and it would really piss off the fans.
>>7538909>he just wants to make figures he thinks looks good.I figured it was more about giving you hyper articulated versions of characters who are usually lacking in that area.I hope Yamaguchi doesn't think his figures look particularly good.
>>7538902Is it the actual joints, or the connecting areas like where the peg goes into the sculpt? The peg holes can be tightened by heating them with no joints in. Having a layer of dry superglue can also help.If it's the actual joints, no replacements, you can take it apart then have a layer of dry superglue to tighten it. But be careful not to put too much as you need to hit that sweet spot of being the right friction vs being too thick to reassemble.
>>7538902This might help https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=abXkkMViy2s
>>7538979Actual joints. I try moving it but it eventually falls appart.
>>7538979Where on the joint do I place the glue?
>>7538913As long as enough of us thinks they're good he'll get to keep making more. I personally love revo Wolverine the most out of all my Wolverine toys. I'm going to need him to make a goddamned Hulk before, or if ever, they quit the Marvel train
Will Hulk be the size of Venom or even bigger?
>>7539514Well they've never announced or hinted it just some of us wishing out loud. I sure hope it'll be a big one though, bigger than even Venom, if they could. If ever...
>>7539539I kinda hope if they go the fuckhuge version he gets segmented fingered like the Toybiz Spider-Hulk or 1000toys Hellboy.
I just tried the heating thing and it's *kinda* tighter. Could I still do the superglue thing and if I do where do I apply it?
>>7540220You would want to get glue into the ball of the joint. Then spent ages always keeping it moving while it dries, otherwise you will end up with the entire joint glued and unmovable.
>>7540225Guess I'll try the "heating part of the joint" thing again.
Official release pictures are up on Kaiyodo's blog, most recent entryhttp://kaiyodo.co.jp/k-blog/>all those accessoriesI might get a bootleg for cheap just to use all the extra parts on a single figure
>>7540609Definitely glad I cancelled my preorder for this now. No doubt some anons here will get him and take some great looking pictures but he seems to have all the same hallmarks of the earlier Revo Iron Man figures that made me wish for something less soft.
>>7540661I can see your point. The soft rounded edges do make it look gummy, especially since I'm used to Bandai's MCU SHF Iron Man releases. It seems like no other company can really get the nice clean cuts in plastic the way Bandai does with whoever is producing their toys. This does look like a REALLY fun stylized Iron Man toy though.
>>7540609holy shit! this is way too good to be true, he looks amazing
>>7540609Damn he looks sick, can't wait
So is Revoltech IM movie or comic-based?And should I get Cap? I really wanted "classic" version instead of the bland current one.
>>7541024It's based off the Bleeding Edge armor that was introduced during Fractions Iron Man run.
Any site where I can order replacement joints?
Should I go with Captain America? I’d much rather have something more vintage appearing with wings on head.
>>7541024If revoltech, get the comic based. If you want MCU Iron Man, I honestly think the shf are done much better. >>7541976i love most things about the cap, but if you want an import with the wings, you're out of luck. neither kaiyodo, medicom nor bandai has done classic cap before.
>>7540609>>7540679Not a release for me, but this is such a sick integration of Asemborgs creativity.Also love the shiny paint. Just not an Iron Man for me. I am excited to see creative looks tho
>Optimus PrimeIt's Convoy. :^)
>>7531035I don't have the new one, I have the old one. I understand the sculpt (or at least part of it) has been redone, but I can't accept the double price for basically the same figure. Anyway, I have the whole Buddhist line, and it is top tier, sculpt and colors wise. They suffer from not exceptional articulation, especially in the legs, because of the clothes. And, well, they're revoltech, so they have joints you may or may not like, and you may get bent pieces out of the box.Back to ashura, I'd just say, if you can find the old one (they shouldn't go for more than 3000 yen) grab one of those and see if you like the line.
>>7542318Not as of 2007, poser!
>>7540609Someone needs to do the virgin and chad pose with this guy and the figuarts.
>>7542426Or maybe we don't make unfunny memes.
>>7542421Only a few incarnations (Movie and I think Prime maybe) use that name. It's still Convoy most of the time.
>>7539504Okay I do have to admit that Wolverine is pretty much perfect even if I think most of his comic sculpts are tolerable at best.
>>7542446Revoltech Cap is a line-exclusive design right?
>>7542474Something really clicked with Wolverine. The musculature, the face sculpt, the hands, down to the joints placement were just spot-on. Only thing that can push it beyond for me is if it had the Bryne / Jim Lee costume instead of the Astonishing. Easily my fav AY revo still.
>>7542474The only ones I had trouble with is Deadpool (His right wrist joint keeps falling appart.) and Venom (He's fuckhuge and I broke the stand he came with, forcing me to use a regular one.).
>>7542775It's his Marvel NOW costume from a few years ago.
>>7542874Shit. Any chances of a new classic version?
>>7542882I really doubt it. Not something revoltech or yamaguchi has done. They were the first import company to do MCU Iron Man but it was of different suits. AY line has never shown interest in doing two versions/sculpts of one superhero character. You'd be better off HOPING bandai releases that prototype of movie cap in his classic outfit.
My Venom's abdomen is super-loose. Any way I can fix it?
Hey guys, i'm about to pull the trigger on Acid Worm, any considerations before i do it?My reasoning is simple:>i like building stuff>i like monsters>i like translucent green
>>7543074Do it, I don't have him myself but IIRC he's great.
>>7543078Done. Thanks Anon.
>>7516996>anything form 40kSoon
>>7543016I used the joint from a old stand, it worked.
>>7543074>This is the closest to a Revoltech Mantis Alien we will get
>>7543074do it! hell grab two for better mixing and matching!or grab a couple others from the line cause theyre all good
The Assemble Borgs do come with joints right? Just asking.
>>7543184>get a vintage Kenner Mantis>cut and drill limbs>add green and gray revoletch joints
How is the AY Batman? Any issues like with gambit or is he a good release?
Just got this magnificent bastard in the mail. Not sure if i should open or just resell him for $650. Kidding, but i never leave figures in the packaging, this guy is tempting tho.
>>7543428Cape is garbage, but he's otherwise extremely solid. I like wolverine more, but I'd say the DC stuff is the best in the line.>>7543466I really wish this guy had come out a couple years later when yamaguchi had finally learned how to do hips. He's otherwise great, but those things are so frustrating.
>>7543490Thanks for the quick response. The cape does look strange, are there any good cape alternatives for it?
>>7543497I got one from a guy on instagram, but I don't think he's taking commissions anymore, try ebay or etsy? I'm pretty sure that daredevil guy on youtube made some too. Just make sure you get a wired one.
>>7543490Saw the reviews, i agree, it takes some finessing to get him in certain leg poses but holy shit, he looks solid! The eyes are a bitch to get perfect over all i love this figure. Looks great next to my shf Thanos and scales so well.Excuse the vanilla poses. I wonder if Revoltech is ever going to make more marvel figures agian.
>>7543518Cool thanks for the info anon.
>>7543184this >>7543405 but with the Neca one.
>>7543369Done Anon. The seller only had one though. If i happen to like it (and i'm assuming i will) i'll import a few others to assemble bigger stuff. Being eyeing the Hades Pod for quite some time now.
>>7543547fuck that ultron looks so good
>>7543518That's a nice looking cape. Got a link for the guy's insta?
Considering getting myself a Revo Eva from Mandy for my birthday, but I'm torn between 00, 01 and 05. Any suggestions/input?
>>7545683Welp, just ordered 01 and 00, looking forward to them.
