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