This revoltech is just such

This revoltech is just such an oddity. At the first few pictures it looked really awesome and I was super excited for it. Now, it seems less like a step forward and more like a step sideways... It's just so odd and I don't know how to feel about it.

put a revochip on it

"I put the Revochip in there because I'm a foreigner and can't actually cash in Revochips. "

You could drill tiny holes in them and make a charm bracelet!

What we need is a Revochip

What we need is a Revochip piggy bank in the shape of Raoh's horse.

I got this one

My toy's head is really floppy, too. This is definitely a "set it and forget it" kind of figure (although the neck design does allow a better range of poses than the original one.)

The newer Revo's do seem to be rather accessory-light.

The Getter Beam effect is exactly as lame as VF5SS describes it.

I put some comparison shots of this one and the original version in my gallery: http://www.collectiondx.com/gallery/v/Collections/RobotBastard/

One odd thing to note is that this version of Getter 1 is *FAT*. Like, the torso is about twice the volume of the original one. I guess that's a little more anime-accurate, but it makes him look like a porky middle-aged version of the character.

It should be noted that the "cape" is a soft-vinyl material, rather than the hard plastic typically used in Revo's.

I will say that this version of the toy has better-looking axes. The ones on the original were kind of dinky-looking (although I guess they were in anime-accurate scale.)

Accessory count seems to come

Accessory count seems to come in waves. They start off light and then make more stuff that nobody wants. Then they cut back and overshoot. It's all about balance.

I mean it's not like what Vange1us thinks like there's this magic number for each figure and each accessory or gimmick excludes the inclusion of another.

Like when he though transformation was the reason RD Arios only came with a gun and sword lol
