Revoltech Danboard Review

Bought this last year from ebay, item+shipping for 4000 yen. This is the first 2G Revoltech I bought. I bought this one because I have a problem with limited edition items.

Danboard is a character in the manga Yotsuba&!. it is a cardboard box robot. Yotsuba&! thinks it is a real robot but it’s not.

All boxed up! Transit acquired damage on paper band. Ebay seller lost one star.

No one is perfect. Ebay seller got a positive feedback as long as I receive the item.

What’s inside the box…

The set includes Miura Hayasaka’s head, a stand, extra revoltech joint and Danboard figure. A pamphlet is also included in which it shows other Revoltech figures and the catchy phrase: “Let’s collect all Revoltech”. πŸ˜„

Stand says: Yotsuba&! Enjoy Everything

Back

Revoltech Danboard has 5 Revoltech Joints + 1 Revoltech Joint on Miura Hayasaka’s head. Total of 6. This figure has less articulation than Revoltech Yamaguchi.

Head stand!

so it’s not a robot after all.

Paint job: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜† (Danboard is made of used boxes and the color really looks like a real box. Details such as barcodes and fragile add a realistic touch to it. But the color is only brown, hues of brown, brown everywhere, even the box.)

Articulation: β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜† (Since it has only 6 revoltech joints, poses are limited. But 1 β˜… for the light. I hope that they will integrate light to other figures.)

My Review Rating: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

Overall, Revoltech Danboard even with less articulation, it is still a work of aesthetic value. Yes, it is cute. It is inspiring. Inspires me for my next halloween costume.
