I was incredibly close to buying this off of HLJ along with my Genesic Gao Gai Gar, but then I forgot about it for a while. Now I am lusting after it all over again. Great review!

hm.....

somewhat more pricey than the usual revoltech line. but i think all the extra accessories in a bigger window box really paid off. currently ordering it from my local toystore supplier. the usual blackmarket thingy.

life needs to be bittersweet;
you work the sweet side, and i'll manage to embitter it.

Looks great. Hope he shows

Looks great. Hope he shows up in Season 3/4 depending on whether you count Fumoffu.
Lots of accessories, and it even looks dynamic just standing.

One more thing

One thing worth noting is that, according to the official Revoltech website, this release is part of a new "DX" category of Revoltech figures that, due to the higher price point, come with much more accessories that the stand Revvie. This is the second DX Revvie, the first being the Yotsuba Summer Vacation version. The best part of this for me was that HLJ sold this (at least when I paid for it) at the regular 1995 yen price point.

This guy is amazing What I

This guy is amazing
What I hate is tha I feel ripped off by kayodo. The increase in price for this figure is not related to the ammount of accesories provided. I mean, it should be at least as expensive as one and a half revoltech. I mean, the price it's awsome, but what about all the others revoltech I bought that have almost no accesorie and where just a few dollars cheaper?

Actually, as heavily articulated as this guy is, Bandai will release this on their Robot Damashii line. I'm kind of holding out for that one.
