Hello Kitty Revoltech: Super cute and super articulated
This one kind of came out of nowhere. Kaiyodo and Sanrio are collaborating to create a Revoltech version of Hello Kitty. It comes with interchangeable standard and winking faces, an easel, an apple, and a crayon. The figure will be available in Japan on December 15 for ¥2100 (about $22) but it will probably be about $45 when it makes it over to American retailers.

25th Anniversary Naked Snaked Figure

25 years of Metal Gear Solid and we get this super rad Naked Snake figurine from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker by Japanese toy maker, Kaiyodo. The figure drops this April at ¥3,980, or $43, with pre-orders starting February 15. I’m really digging the colorless mockup and cardboard box combination.

Monthly Revoltech Report (Oct. 2011)

Each month, Kaiyodo puts out a new super-articulated toy for its Yamaguchi series, usually based on a giant robot. Yesterday saw the launch of Himura Kenshin and Himura Battohsai from Rurouni Kenshin. The double release was Kaiyodo’s way of celebrating the series’ 15th anniversary.

Next month, we’ll get Eva Unit 05 from the Rebuild of Evangelion series of movies. This figure is massive - 160mm tall.

Next month will also see the release of Jehuty from Zone of the Enders: The Second Runner. The paint job is slightly different from the first Jehuty figure, but it comes with some different accessories. If you’ve put off buying a Jehuty figure this long, just wait until next month to get this slightly shinier version.

The last Revoltech figure of 2011 will be Anubis, also from ZOE 2. Someone better make an awesome stop-motion video of Jehuty and Anubis fighting to the death.

You saw all these in last month’s Monthly Revoltech Report, you say? I know, I know. But Kaiyodo didn’t announce any new figures since then - at least in the Yamaguchi series (the series that this report is meant to cover). To make up for it, here are some shots of Revoltech’s Pixar series, available on December 15, 2011. They’ve got Wall-E and a set of Finding Nemo characters.

Monthly Revoltech Report (Sep. 2011)

Each month, Kaiyodo puts out a new super-articulated toy for its Yamaguchi series, usually based on a giant robot. Launching today is Eva Unit 06 from the Rebuild of Evangelion series of movies. This one’s got a super cool color scheme, a translucent halo, and a moon that can attach to the back of the figure. A light inside the moon makes it glow and even transmits light to the translucent eyes, making them glow. Very cool.

Next mont will be a double whammy with both Himura Kenshin and Himura Battohsai from Rurouni Kenshin getting the Revoltech treatment. The figures are meant to celebrate the series’ 15th anniversary. I smell a plastic sword fight coming.


November is another month with a double release. First, there’s an alternate Jehuty figure from Zone of the Enders. Figure 103 from April was a figure of Jehuty, but this one is slightly different looking and has a lot of new accessories. I think that’s kind of mean to release two similar figures so close in time to one another. I’m a bit obsessed over Zone of the Enders, so I do want this one, but I just spent $55 on the last one. Pass.

The other November figure is Eva Unit 05 from the Rebuild of Evangelion series. This Eva is a creepy mofo. It’s like a giant praying mantis. But with a giant spear attached to it. The figure is 160cm tall - a good 20cm taller than most of the giant robot editions.

We usually only get to peer two months into the Revoltech future. But this time we get to see all the way ahead into December. And that’s when you can get your hands on this awesome Anubis figure from Zone of the Enders. Those Jehuty figures aren’t going to fight themselves, you know. Being a big fan of the series, I’m probably going to pick this up. But images of Anubis - god of the afterlife, not the giant robot - have always creeped me out. So maybe not…

Check back on the 15th of each month for Albotas’ monthly Revoltech report.

Monthly Revoltech Report (July ‘11)

Each month, Kaiyodo puts out a new super-articulated toy, usually based on a giant robot. Launching today is Evangalion’s Movie Version Eva Unit 03 in freak-out mode. Scary!

Next month is Full Metal Panic’s ARX-8. This one comes with a shitload of guns, if you didn’t notice.

And in September, you’ll be able to get your hands on this amazing figure. It comes with the halo and moon and the eyes even have LEDs in them. I only collect the normal non-movie Eva Revoltechs, but this one is so sweet that I’m probably going to pick it up anyway.
