December 22, 2010

Pre-ordered from Hobby Link Japan.

Update! – 2.20.2011

Received my copy of Figure Oh Premium Series 9 – Revoltech Taizen 2! from Hobbylink Japan. Sharing updates from the magazine. I recommend buying this magazine for Revoltech collectors out there as it lists all of Revoltech releases (Yamaguchi, Fraulein, Fist of the North star, Queen’s Blade, Assemble Borg) since 2006.

Some photos which you’ll find interesting….

Magazine cover

Boxed with Revoltech Yamaguchi 100 – EVA-01 [EVA EVO Series]

Revoltech Yamaguchi 104 – EVA-00 [EVA EVO Series] – so glad that it isn’t a limited edition like it’s RD counterpart.

Updates on Revoltech Yamaguchi EVA-03 and EVA-05.EVA-05 looks massive, hoping it would be a scale along with the other EVAs.

Sorry for the photo quality but yes, if you have the magazine you’ll see a picture of Vash the Stampede which is black in color with Tokusatsu (Sci-fi) Revoltech Daimajin (which looks gray) and Revoltech Yamaguchi 99 – Getter Arc Black edition. Can’t read Japanese but it looks like these are limited editions the way they’re  in a different layout.

Tokusatsu Sci-fi Revoltech 024 – Iron Man Mark 6 and prototypes for new Gyaos and Gamera.

Prototype for Revoltech Spiderman? Below looks like another EVA. Also we are looking at a Monsters Inc. Revoltech!

The prize! Revoltech Yamaguchi 100 – EVA-01 Clear purple edition. I won’t open it yet though. Busy this weekend…

Not too late yet, there is a February restock of the magazine… get a copy!

Update! – 3.15.2011

Revoltech Yamaguchi 100 EVA EVO EVA-01 Clear Purple Figure-Oh  Revoltech Taizen 2 Exclusive Limited Edition (Whew!) Not even sure if I got that right.

Basically, it’s the same as Revoltech Yamaguchi 100 but  it’s just clear purple, comes in a recycled box and includes a purple Revo plier.

Action shots!

Sachiel lights up, emits a white blinding light, not red.

The recommended pose… not even sure I got the hands right.

Thanks for visiting!

Revoltech Yamaguchi EVA Collectors Box Review

November 22, 2010

Pre-order was slim from Hobby Link Japan and after 30 minutes filling up the pre-order form the item went to Order stop status. (now it’s Discontinued!) So relieved I made it through that process (first time purchase with HLJ) and after my tax responsibility with customs, finally, I got my advance Christmas present… Revoltech Yamaguchi EVA Collectors Box!

Price is ¥8,095 (excluding shipping and customs tax) but it’s worth every penny since I didn’t get a chance to purchase Revoltech Yamaguchi 067 (EVA-01 New Movie); Revoltech Yamaguchi 068 (EVA-02 New Movie) and EX Figure Oh Magazine Exclusive (EVA-03) (way so expensive now because it is an exclusive) so again this is a great blessing for me for not being able to purchase them…

A great collection for Evangelion fans and Revoltech Yamaguchi line…

By the way I almost forgot to mention these figures are in Metallic colors!

Here are some photos:

The Box (It is by far the biggest box among Revoltech Yamaguchi line…and I don’t have a big photo box or studio to take a photo of it…)

Box back (Shows pictures of EVA series from 00-03 and extra parts of each)

Inside…

Arranged by series EVA-00 to EVA-03. Box contains 4 Transparent stands and extension with 8 Revolver joints, 1 Revoplier (didn’t have one until now!) , 4 Revo Containers and 4 Revo Coins!

Thanks to Decoback for the hangar background kit… hangar fits perfectly to each EVA from 01 to 03, except EVA-00.
