This set came out in June I think, but I combined it with another order that got delayed for months until Amiami decided to not let me drag any longer and wanted payment. I couldn’t modify the order either so I had to pay shipping for just one item that weighed nearly nothing.
…since I’ve moved here. Again it’s another review-less week, and I thought I’d do an introspective post instead. I actually had a draft somewhere which I never published because it was too messy, but I’ll try to tidy things up. As long-time readers of this blog would be aware, I have been living in Japan for a year now. Instead of blogging as usual, I went on a six-month hiatus after moving here where I lived a rather simple life without writing about it or about toys in general. However when asked about my impressions of life here I found it hard to collect my thoughts as I never wrote anything about it.
Another week without reviews. I should have split last week’s post for consistency. Here’s a few pictures of the Rider Wear set by Pop Toys.
While my battered wallet is appearing to take a well-deserved breather amidst these few slow weeks, I’ve been spending time outside instead as summer is almost reaching its end. In the meantime, I dug up some not-so new pictures of some of my 1/6 figures in my slowly growing collection of clothing.
Not too long ago Bandai announced that they finally decided to reissue the VF-25S and I was lucky enough to get in a pre-order on HLJ. I’m not sure if they can fulfill it but I’m holding out hope that I can find it in a shop somewhere here in Japan. So far I’ve seen the 2nd reissue 25F and the recently released YF-30 in shops several times.
I built this kit out of the box shortly after coming to Japan. Never really took proper pictures of it because I wasn’t writing posts on this blog back then and conveniently forgot about it until recently.
While the Revoltech line, especially the Queen’s Blade series, appears to be dying, there has been a wave of re-releases of previous Revoltech figures under the “Legacy of Revoltech” banner. To me Kaiyodo is screaming and admitting that their clicky joints don’t work too well as newer figures are now in a different scale but the biggest deal is that they don’t have clicky joints anymore. Cattleya is one of the older Queen’s Blade figures which seems to have escalated in value on the second hand market, until this re-release gave collectors a second chance.
