Revoltech EVA Pachinko Prizes

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.

Yamaguchi Goes on Vacation: Effective Immediately

It has been announced in recent days that the Revoltech Yamaguchi line, Revoltechs first and best selling range is to be discontinued with immediate effect. Decembers scheduled release of figures (Enkidudu and Black King Gainer) are to be made as magazine exclusives, and won’t be easily available outside of Japan.

Black King Gainer

This news will certainty come as shock to Revoltech fans. The Yamaguchi line is considered to be the best and be the heart and soul of what Revoltech is all about. This could be one of the results of Good Smile Companies acquisition of the Revoltech brand. Kaiyodo do seem to have been having some problems with Revoltech over the last 12 months, there are been some serious QC issues and the fact that Fraulein, Hokuto No Ken and SFO ranges have all massively under-performed. Still it seems hard to imagine why they would cancel their best selling range. Perhaps Yamaguchi just needs a break, he has been sculpting 2 figures a month since 2006, that’s alot of hard work, and certainly worthy of a break.

Enkidudu

But all is not lost. May 2009 has the release of 3.0 REBOOT, Revoltechs third generation of figures, and sure enough Yamaguchi will return. It is said that the new 3.0 line will be a blend of mech and character figures.

Revoltech Expo 2008 Summary

The first ever Revoltech Expo has been a trilling event for all fans of Revoltech figures. There have been announcements and previews galore including including the date for the release of Revoltech’s 3rd Generation (3G) which is being debuted with a trio of cool Queen’s Blade Figures. Despite not much being revealed for Revoltech Yamaguchi, other than Enkidudu and a snazzy new Overman King Gainer figures. All the current lines (Fraulein, Revolution, SFO) will be expanded upon. They will also be accompanied by Assemble Borg by the end of this year. 2009 see’s the release of the already mentioned 3rd Generation Queens Blade and some slightly depressing looking Alien figures to go alongside the new film. There will also be at least one more new range of Revoltech figures released before the end of 2009.

Do Do The Enki Enkidu!!!

Revoltech Yamaguchi continues it’s line of Gurren Legann action figures with the release of Revoltech 065 Enkidu.

Physically Enkidu may appear to have less to it than a normal Revoltech because it doesn’t have a head as such, and instead has a removable scythe like weapon. The awesomeness of this figure more than makes up for the lack of a head though. Enkidu has to be one of the most unusual looking Revoltech’s so far (just wait until you see Enkidudu next month).

The previous Enki is and extremely good and well painted figure and Enkidu looks set to be more of the same, even though it comes with less accessories. Enkidu is also being released along side Doko Demo Issyo’s Pierre. Hopefully two releases of Revoltech Yamaguchi per month will carry on into 2009, although one must think they must be getting short on ideas or licence’s by now (hope not).
