Revoltech 2008

Kaiyodo's releasing some real awesomesauce Revoltechs this year!

Revoltech Hot Rod(imus) and Starscream-scheduled for release this March

I'm not afraid to admit that I'm a Starscream and Hot Rod fangirl, and as a Revoltech fan, I think it's compulsory for me to get them (as long as I don't get sidetracked by other toylines again, of course)

Gurren Lagann (out in May)

Never seen the anime, only heard of it. But he looks kick-robo-ass awesome enough to warrant an instant purchase.


The problem with most female anime figurines is that all they do is sit on your desk, looking pretty with their boobs hanging out. Not that I mind that, but they're usually, more often than not, not articulated. The only way I would buy a statue is if it's cheap and really detailed. And those two rarely come hand in hand. Pocco's nicely sculpted with plenty of details (maybe not as detailed as some anime sculptures, but she's definitely cheaper than most) and with articulation to boot. This Pocco could sit on my table with her boobs hanging out and look pretty. As long as the final product looks as good as this sample, o' course.

A robot with a ponytail! How much cooler can it get?

What is it with fangirls and Starscream? I suppose he is cool though but Hot Rod? He's one of my least favourite bots ever.. :p

Because he's a pretty boy, bwahah. Wouldn't work half as well if he was a human character though. I dunno, I just like him. :D

Maybe cuz' Starscream is often being taken advantage of in one of those disturbing Transformers fanfic, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, you should really watch Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Great adventure anime with one of the manliest characters ever made. Ask a friend, get it of Torrents, whatever as long as you get to watch it. Both boys and girls can enjoy the anime.

Revoltech Pocco looks interesting. It's perhaps the first in the series of Shunya Yamashita's illustration to be turned into an action figure instead of a PVC figure.

To tell you the truth, I usually prefer to stay away from fan fictions, I had the misfortune to come across mary sues during my earlier encounters with fanfics.
YEZ, of course! I will (try to) watch any anime with kick ass robots. Knowing how abysmal my internet connection can be, I'll just borrow it from a friend.
