Did anyone else just **** a brick when they saw the TTGL?

WOOT! I've been waiting for the Max and Millia paint schemes!

Just a few days ago, didn't

Just a few days ago, didn't someone inquire about a Revoltech Regult pod- preferably one with accessory attachments for the missile and recon pods? ...Yeah, I just might get one too!

Wow, it's like they read my mind!

Actually, it's no surprise that a modular design for a toy that can be sold to the same person a few times with different parts is being done. That Rugult looks exactly like the CM's gashapon, it's the same artist after all, but scaled up and the missiles added.

Revoltech looks like it's only getting better, and the determination of not forgetting old stuff that hasn't gotten any toy love is what really makes the line impressive. I'm not into every release, but it only shows how wide spread the market is for other properties.

Regult...

Why do I get this sinking suspicion that the Regult won't actually be in-scale with the Valk figures already out from Revoltech? Battlepods are much bigger than Valks (remember: a humanoid a little taller than a battroid sits inside those things!).

It could very well be, I

It could very well be, I remember seeing a cut-away illustration of the Regult and that bastard must've been a Yogi to get in that thing. It's all legs, and some creative design could keep the thing in relative scale with the Valks. It may not be 100% accurate, the Valk itself is a bit on the stylish side, but I bet it will pretty close.

So far I think anything from Revoltech has been in scale to the other releases from the same property. The Patlabor stuff is in scale for example, so is the Eva and Transformers stuff.

At this point I think it will be close enough, and I certainly won't refuse one if it's not.

Nuh-uh! The EVAs are hardly

Nuh-uh! The EVAs are hardly in-scale with the rest of the figures! They stand on the better [guesstimated] side of 200ft tall. If you consider how tiny the escape pod-like Entry Plugs are inside a Revoltech-sized EVA, then you see why. And I recall a similar discussion elsewhere in CDX that that Dix Nief (sp?) was a bit of the bigger side as well.
You might be able to put Dougram, a Valkyrie, and Optimus Prime together, but you can't add a Patlabor to those three. The Revoltech line is far from in-scale!

He meant each are in scale

He meant each are in scale from each show. So all the patlabors are in scale with each other, and all the Evas with each other, but Eva and Patlabor are not. Dig?

Ahh,

Ahh, hai!

So then the thinking here is that the Regult will be to-scale with the Valkyries...? That would be sweet... Anyone ever done that before?

Yes that's what I meant, I

Yes that's what I meant, I tried to illustrate it with the Patlabor reference, but I guessed some might misinterpret it.

In a roundabout way the old Matchbox Battle Pods and Destroids were 1/60 scale, so they ended up scale to the Yamato stuff, even though they aren't as detailed.

The model kits were scale as well but most of those are long out of production and quite rare.
