New Revoltech Thread Untouched by the Masses

Posted by Gcrush 
I just remembered another good quote from This Boy's Life, when DeNiro says, "Shut your gawd damn pie hole!"
Dear Gcrush,

You will henceforth be known as a sorry punk-ass-bitch if--after stirring the inmates here into a big hullabaloo over the Mario Lopez Revoltech figure; after teasing us with videos and tantalizing visuals of the male figure in plastic resplendent glory (all a' tussle, in mid-spank, slapping and squeezing); and after reigniting the cause célèbres that is VZ, etc.--you do not actually have the testicles to pony up and buy this figure yourself and regale us with a full-blown, hardcore, rife-with-money-shots pictorial review when it is released.

I mean, it's cool if you don't want to.

It's not like you're going to be called a pussy or anything.

Much love.

Peace out.

Sincerely,
gingaio

I seriously love The Warden figure. It really taps into some latent subconscious homosexual BDSM innuendo. I don't have a camera handy, but check out some pics from this guy. Fucking awesome.

Dood - I seriously want to get one of these to put on my shelf, if for no other reason than to make people uncomfortable when they see it. That, and to take tiny tiny showers with it. Whatever.

According to the official Figma website, Big Bill is a regular release. Looks like he is due out around July. I scanned over HLJ to see if they had a pre-order up for him yet. Nope. But I'm staying tuned. You can bet your sweet lilies I'll be getting one to, uh, "review" for everyone - inch for fucking inch, bitches. Count on it.

And this is why I love you, man.

And that's why I love you for loving me. Er...

I just finished browsing over the previously-unknown-to-me Figma line at HLJ. I had a huge stroke of inspiration. When Billy comes out I'm going down for another figure as well. To, uh, mix them up a bit. I cannot reveal my plan yet, but I will give you all a clue. It rhymes with Tranny Hooker Revoltech...
Here, a Golgo 13 figma for you guys. Now stop complaining.

I asked if I have "Time For L-Gaim" but I got "No Reply From The Wind".

You can keep the Golgo 13 dollie. Give me the Big Billy action figure.

Here's a legitimate question - how are the Max Factory Figma toys different than the Kaiyodo Fraulein toys? Are their parts swappable?

And by "swappable", I mean, "Can I make a nightmarish tranny hooker out of them?"

And by "I", I mean, "My friend, who is too embarrassed to admit to wanting to make a nightmarish tranny hooker dollie to play with his not-in-the-least-bit-homoerotic Uighur Warden action figure."

No. Gingy is thinking it, too. And you know what? He might be right. I might be crazy.

Well, it just may be a lunatic you're looking for.

Of course not. Lay your doubts aside.

If they weren't I'd have to find another religion. Again. And I really don't want to spend that kind of money on a haruspex just now; ye gods, not in this economy!

OhEmGee. That is flipping genius. I've got to have that to display with a Kenshiro.

It is a sublime action figure. On par with the ripped up version of the white EVA thing from that cartoon. Anyway, many of the FotNS Revoltechs are crazy violent. One comes with a sliced up midget. And another comes with a... How to describe this? A head for the exploding guy that has had his brains punched through. For his hand to fit in. That... Fuck it. Peep the photos stolen from some website that claims to sell toys.

If Gcrush and Gingaio are different people then I demand that they present themselves before me at the East Coast Chogokin Summit this Summer. You have plenty of time to make this happen sir (or sirs). I will not be played like a chump ala Lex Luther.

my fave action figures that I wish I'd never sold were mummies from the first Mummy film. Some of them came apart in really ugly ways. I miss them.

Dude, I'm still kicking myself for missing the 10th anniversary
bash. Ah, well, maybe the 15th.

Don't know if I can make it back East over the summer, but if you
and the Massachusetts homies are going to the Con, I'd be happy to
meet up with you down there.

For the record, everyone knows Gcrush is just a cheap Korean bootleg of the gingaio. He was constructed out of inferior model-grade plastic, assembled by underfed children in Thailand, and layered with globs of lead paint.

Or was that the other way around?
mcfitch (Admin)
Hey if you can buy Figma shower figures you can make it happen. Get out here.

If by "the con" you mean SDCC then yes, I'll be there.
-Mason

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Matthewalt &quot;I actually kinda LIKE that approach! You know: let's make a TOY. Remember those? Products designed to be played with without breaking? DO YOU REMEMBER, LOVE?!&quot;
Yeah, the SDCC; haven't been there in a couple of years. We should definitely meet up. I'll be cosplaying as Big Billy in my man-diapers.

Hopefully, Gcrush can make it, too, and be dressed up as my slap-happy wrestling partner....unless he's my alter ego.

Will see what I can do about the Toy Summit. Are there usually hooch and strippers there?
As far as I'm concerned, if I haven't met you face to face, then I have no idea of who you are. Hillsy, Gingaio, Chris From Italy, as far as I'm concerned you're all pretty much the same person.
As far as I'm concerned, Roger and I are the same person.
Which would make me the same person as Roger?
I don't get it.
Neither do I.
cae
does Roger want it?

Who's this "Roger"? I bet he doesn't even collect toys.

I don't know, but I bet he's a big anus.
Until this identity thing gets straightened(heehee) out, I advise Mason to not send anymore Sanjeeving fees to either of those punks. You never know where your e-money is a' going these days.




...I am by no means a financial adviser, therefore my advice is given freely.
In anticipation of the OAV Getter Dragon (and Dancougar) figure, I picked up a couple of Revoltechs and a couple turned into about a dozen. I finally understand what all the hype is about--these are about the coolest, sturdiest action figures I've ever handled.

Somebody needs to review this.

Enkidududududududu is even more awesome. Because he has four arms. Unfortunately, each additional arm runs you about $35 dollars. Ouch. And they seriously cheaped out on its scabbards by only giving you two for the back - even though the fucking box even shows the toy with two more on the front.

"Products may vary slightly from pictures shown." That fucking Yamaguchi! Or whoever! Rwalf!

Quit lookin' at me like that. I'm still trying to track down the first version. Or the "Men at Work" version. That's pretty hot, too.
Anyone know where I can order a Billy figure without going through a middle-man service? While I love the concept of the figure, there's only so much loot I'm willing to drop on it...

Anyway, I found this review. Enjoy.

When I asked the fella running TokyoBuyers, at the Summit, if he got a laugh from some "embarassing" things people requested, he laughed, and said "Uh, those requests usually come from France..."
