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.
Here’s a review of the Tamashii exclusive Tornado Parts for the VF-25F.
I decided to get this off Mandarake before its price would continue shooting up to ridiculous levels. Despite it being opened and the box severely damaged, it didn’t come cheap.
