I previously wrote about the first Revoltech that I bought and how I feel about their articulated joints. I’m not a fan but I just realized that I have 6 Revoltechs, (Pocco, Rin, Rei, Haruhi from the Fraulein series, Yotsuba and Protect Gear). Except for Pocco, which is only figure displayed on the computer table at home, all of them are stored in their boxes somewhere. I never really bothered with Revoltechs after that.
Then just today, I stumbled upon a WALL-E Revoltech. I love WALL-E! I looked for more photos and this definitely is in my wishlist. I’m sure the Little TP will love this too. ^^
Don’t you just love this robot? In the movie he’s programmed to clean up the planet and after so many years he developed his own personality. And such great personality it is! I hope they’ll come up with an EVE Revoltech real soon so WALL-E will be happy.
Then there’s Lightning McQueen Revoltech. This is actually something that you can play with since this is also a pull back toy car. With the accessories included, you can change Lightning McQueen’s expressions and recreate scenes from Cars.
Nemo, on the other hand, comes with a miniature Dory and a coral reef stand. I’m not excited with this figure though. Sure, Nemo is cute and you can also change his facial expressions, but for some reason it gives me that outdated vibe like those those decorative ceramic pieces that you see in your Grandma’s house or something. ^^;
Previously released Revoltech Pixar items were Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story and Mike and Sully from Monsters Inc.
Little TP loves robots and I’m pleasantly surprised that Revoltech has a lot to offer. I guess I just didn’t choose my previous Revoltechs well. In my opinion, those Revoltech joints are not exactly suited for female figures, in this case the Fraulein collection, but they look good with their Yamaguchi and Tokusatsu series. Displaying them is another issue though, I hope they have better display options with their newer figures.
