Revoltech: SABER

You must have realised that this Revoltech from Kaiyodo lacked a serial number. That is because SABER is the first G2 Revoltech series. It stands at a 140mm, a larger scale than the earlier Revoltechs. Thereis also re-design in the joint system, such that the vital joints such as the elbows or joints that are exposed, are replaced and modified to another type that will not come loose easily and also look smoother. It had been sitting on the shelf in its lovely square box until I finally decided to take it out for its photo shoot before I get the new Saber Alter, next week. After clearing Saber for shoot, I still have 1997 Movie Editions EVA-00, EVA-MP and EVA-MP Special. This shoot is unique from the rest, because I have applied the use of a new setup and techniques such that PP work is minimum.

Saber, Shirō's Servant,is an agile but powerful warrior. Loyal, independent, and reserved, Saber acts coldly but is actually suppressing her emotions to focus on her goals. Her class is considered the "Most Outstanding", with excellent ratings in all categories. Since her Master cannot effectively provide her with Mana, she minimizes her activity to preserve what she has. Saber is frustrated by Shirō's "protective" tendencies, believing his erratic and reckless behavior will jeopardize her chances of winning the Holy Grail War.

Claypot Rice at Clementi

I had 五味贩 (Five Fragrance Rice, a type of claypot rice) with my buddy Nexus at Clementi during TGIF after he collected his graduation commencement package. Shown here is 2 persons share at S$10. I am probably no a gourmet to taste the difference between good and bad claypot rice. I thought it tasted rather ordinary. We ordered watercress soup and satay as well.

August Revoltech: EVA Movie Versions

The July releases are No.030 Buster Machine Dix Neuf and No.031 OVA ver.GETTER1.
What about August releases?

In late August, EVA-00 and EVA-01 are coming back to wet your taste buds as 'New Movie Edition' series or 'Neon Genesis Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone' series. There was an earlier re-release of EVA-02 (not re-issue) as No. 027 EVA-02 (1997 Movie Version), so now the other two lead EVAs get their turn. The new releases of Revoltechs all stand at 140mm, which is taller than the earlier Revoltechs at 130mm.

No.032 EVA-01 New Movie Edition
EVA-01 was earlier releases as No.004 EVA-01, now it is back as No.032 EVA-01 New Movie Edition. The new EVA-01 comes with the same release cable, same head with open jaw, stand, fire flash, two shoulder parts (one with dagger chamber), G-type shoulder parts, new dagger and eight hands. I believe EVA-01 New Movie Edition will give the biggest Revoltech gallery again since it won MyBearbrick Favourite Revoltech Award!

No.033 EVA-00 New Movie Edition
EVA-00 was really lucky to be earlier released in two versions as No. 005 EVA-00 and No.011 EVA-00 KAI, now it is back as No.033 EVA-00 New Movie Edition. The new EVA-00 comes in a completely new colour scheme, yellow/white/grey. It is equipped with a release cable, stand, Machine gun (from EVA-00 Kai), two sabres (one from EVA-01 and another new, both designs were found in my EVA-01 SPEC), eight hands and a damn COOL silver BFG!

No.EXTRA Positron RiflexESV Shield Set
For the first time, Kaiyodo is releasing a non-figurine add-on pack to the Revoltech series, No.EXTRA Positron RiflexESV Shield Set. The destructive Positron Rifle and the formidable ESV Shield are just so damn cool. Their sheer size makes them worth an individual box set all alone (no figurines included).

"UP YOURS!" to those who claimed that "Revoltechs do not do re-issues, 'cos they are cheap toys"

GETTER1 OVA Black Version

Even before the Revoltech No.031 GETTER1 OVA version hit the shelves, Revoltech has already given fans a glimpse of GETTER1 OVA Black version! There is still no word from Kaiyodo about whether the GETTER1 Black OVA version will be a special edition like the Ultramagnus of EVA type Mass Production with Longinus Spear.

Differences between the two versions:
GETTER1 OVA version (G1OVA) and GETTER1 OVA Black version (G1OVABk)

  • G1OVA is red and G1OVABk is black in colour.
  • The designs on the torso and limbs are distinctly different between G1OVA and G1OVABk
  • G1OVA has blades on both forearms while G1OVABk has it only on the left forearm.
  • G1OVA has two identical guncannon-blades while G1OVABk has two different short pistols.
  • G1OVABk has got gauntlet-spikes on the hands while G1OVA does not.
    G1OVABk has got a small black cloak (in a 'blown-in-the-wind' shape) around his neck
