Revoltech Update

Update from the Summer WonderFest 2006,

The questionable Revoltech #14 is NOT an Isoltic H8,
but a Patlabor Ingram Unit 2!
No pictures of #14 as yet.

However, there is a special #000 Senmu.
I have not clue who Senmu is about. He could be a character from some show or anime.

Sitting Duck by Studio Ghibli

If you are expecting a new show from Studio Ghibli or Hayao Miyazaki,
you are wrong.
'Sitting Duck' refers to the DVD Box Set that features the archives of Studio Ghibli production, being shelved for 2 months.
Despite being a great fan-boy for famous works like Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle, I have shamelessly showed my support by getting the MIC version of the collection.

I will try to watch it again, despite the fact that I have watched every single animation.

The picture quality is not a re-mastered version, but seems more like a port-over from VHS, since back then, VHS was the popular media used in Japan.

I guess its time to watch one per weekend, and I should be done with it in no time. So many times, I have bought DVDs for the sake of keeping. I ought to watch it at least once to make my purchase worthwhile!! Argh!

GFF Crossbone XM-X2

Gundam FiX Figuration #0016b Crossbone XM-X2
The first time I saw this GFF was at Seiyu's GFF clearance at S$55. Back then the boxes were all in a damn bad condition. I never really thought of picking it up at all. However, I recently realised that someone is selling it at S$30, based on the fact that the box condition is damn terok! Then I thought, "heck! I usually keep my GFF MIB, hence this will be good for display, since its box isn't exactly mint." I just have the feeling that this was from Seiyu special clearances. I decided to grab it.

The Crossbone XM-X2 is an alternative modeof the Crossbone XM-X1, which is white in colour. XM-X1 is featured in GFF #0016a. The contents are identical except for the colour scheme. The reason for getting this is because I am waiting for the new GFF #0031 Crossbone XM-X3, white in colour and comes with lots of custom parts. I cannot wait any longer, even if it is just one week! I thought that the alternative scheme, XM-X2, will complement well with the upcoming Crossbone XM-X3, which I will definitely get. So Xm-X3 is a must, while Xm-X1 is not necessary.

Some pictures taken with a green background, which I intend to do some CG effects to it at a later time. Meanwhile, gallery is available at playroom.

I long been tempted to get the Zeta II GFF #0030, though it wasn't really in the top of the list. But since I was offered S$50 on the same day, I say "Why Not!?"

Is it going to end here?
Or are we expecting the Angels?

REVOLTECH MANIA (Oct-Nov'06 Release)

Kaiyoda is definitely coming for your wallet!
One reason why I am not going to keep Revoltech Evangelions, is exactly answered by the October release.
Luck this is the last variation of the Evangelion robots of the animation, unless they decide to release the Angels as well.
Meanwhile, I have no clue what Revi from Black Lagoon is about.
Heck, if you are a collector, you should have all!
Not me though.

Revoltech October Release
I am just a 'buy-what-i-see-i-like'.

Revoltech #13 EVA-04
The EVA-04 bears a strong resembrance to EVA-03 apart from the different colour and the pilot. The parts that came along with this #13 EVA-04, at this point of time, assume to be the same as #09 EVA-03.

Revoltech #12 REVI from Black Lagoon
This character bears a close resembrance to Lara Craft. I would rank this as one of the worst Revoltech.

Revoltech #15 Isoltic Round Facer H8
I have no clue which series this is from as well. Guess, I'm not too much an OTAKU! Heck, this is fugly anyway. #14 is missing, so I assume that the blue version of the Isoltic is actually the #14. What a con!
