Some thing never change, and Kaiyodo seems to be one of those things. The Revoltech line is expanding to include more exclusives only available in Japan.
This time the exclusive Revoltechs come in the form of these awesome repaints of the classic EVA 01 and 04 figures featuring new metallic colour schemes and accessories.
These Revoltechs will only be available as prizes at Pachinko Parlours and a limited number will be available from the Gainax store. Let’s hope that future Revoltechs will be made a little less exclusive to Japan as many western fans grow weary of not being able complete their collections after last years cancellation of Enkidudu and Black King Gainer to become exclusives.
Eye on Asia is currently having what is perhaps the biggest sale I have ever seen. There is currently well in excess of 200 PVC figures, Resin Statues and Action figures at insanely low prices. Apparently all these figures are very limited and are being sold on a first come first served basis.
I looked through the list and have found a surprising assortment of older, hard to find figures and some fairly new releases that are costing a fortune to import from Japan.
Here’s the link to the sale page: Eye on Asia Clearance
Because of the large volume of items and not all of them actually being stocked by Eye on Asia you have to fill in a form on the page and they will let you know if and when they will be able to supply them to you. I think it was a 1-3 week waiting period.
The latest Eye on Asia Showcase video is about to go live, here’s the YouTube version. The latest video features “Reason” by Nami Tamaki.
It’s been a long time since we announced any new Revoltech developments. But here we are just weeks away from the big Revoltech 3.0 Reboot and the very first image of new figures have started to emerge.
2009 will see the continuation of the Assemble Borg and Fist of The North Star range of figures, although there is still no news if Assemble Borg will ever make it to Europe.
Most interesting is the return of the mech figures, although this line will certainly be accompanied with character figures (so far three Queens Blade figure are scheduled for release). It seems that the Gurren Lagann range may finally be drawing to a close for now, And Evangelion will be getting a Revoltech revival featuring all new EVA’s as the appear in Evangelion 2.0. At the back of the image is a new EVA that features in the film, more on that at a later date. It has also been rumoured that new Getter Robo figures are likely to be released.
Eye on Asia is currently planning on stocking the new 3.0 range shortly after their release in Japan, so hopefully you won’t have to worry about the extensive European delays! (Still no signs of Enkidu and Pierre!)
More exciting Revoltech news and images coming soon…
