    anyone know if theres any plans to do anymore g1 figures i have the 3 out up til now but some of the other g1 characters would transfer brilliantly,
    would especailly like to see ironhide, starscream, soundwave and sideswipe. just looking at the g1 designs these would be the best suited.
    sorry if this has been posted before

    Currently, the only Revoltechs announced are up to August. With July being Dix-Neuf and OVA Getter 1 and August being more Evangelion variations. Not much else is known past August right now.

    Please, no more freaking TFs in the Revoltech line. We already have a million Starscreams to choose from, not including another TF will give some more deserving robots a chance to be in the line.

    Yeah, I'd like a few more Getters, Gunbuster, Great Mazinger, Vash the Stampede, Zambot 3 and more along those lines.

    And your refering to which ones exactly?
    I want me some Rovoltech Braves. The Sunrise mecha action series is good and all but they seem to break easier than revoltechs.

    Those ones you mention sound good too Sol Fury.

    I wasnt aware dante, saber, and revy looked like power rangers. I must have missed quite a bit.

    There arent any "revoltech" branded TFs on the way, but the movie "Robot Replica" figures use actual revoltech joints, and are the same size as existing revoltech figures.

    I agree with you. I don't like the robots that look like they're made out of bubbles. I'd love more TFs, or even a Voltron.

    Maybe if they stopped making 8,000 EVAs. I love Evangelion, but 3 TFs aren't really to blame for your not getting the RTs you want. More TFs won't mean you'll never get the ones you want, so don't begrudge us the ones we want.

    Gaiking and Getter are legendary mechas. Any figures they get are always welcome. Its because of robots like them that the mecha genre even exists today.

    Gaiking and Getter were made before Transformers and Power rangers!

    As I said in my Revoltech Saber thread, I'd really like to see more Fate/Stay Night characters made into Revoltechs - Archer in particular would be a great choice!

    [​IMG]

    I'm not too sure how they would fit his Reality Marble into the box, though...

    ...unless you show the Unlimited Blade Works backdrop on the inner box art!


    And from the list of Noble Phantasms he has listed in the article linked above, he wouldn't be short of relevant accessories, either.


    He's one of the most iconic characters from F/SN, to boot - so I don't doubt he'd be a very popular figure.



    As far as Masters go, Shirou Emiya might be a good choice, but perhaps Rin Tohsaka would be a better first release.

    I'll put it like this - he's so cool, he even has his own MySpace page!


    For a fictional character, that's tantamount to reaching the Holy Grail...

    EDIT: It seems that Saber has one, as well! Cool.

    Thats Archer from Fate Stay Night (Saber is also from Fate Stay Night). Any more info would spoil the anime /game for everyone that has not but intends to watch them.

    I'm all for that. But Revoltech figures being non-scale (as someone recently pointed out to me), Archer might only turn out to be as tall (or SHORTER) than Revoltech Saber. And I simply cannot have that!

    Well, there's a Hyper Fate Archer action figure, but those don't pose very well, and they set you back around 70 US dollars...

    Me would like Revoltech Voltron too! (<- Is too cheapskate to spend 100 US dollars on the Anniversary version)

    Well, I wouldn't rush to judgement too quickly - I'd rather have an Archer fig with the Revoltech level of poseability than a to-scale, yet immobile, statue!


    Actually, I would like a 'civilian version' of Saber, dressed in the regular clothes she wore while training, armed with a bokken... and leaving her hair long!
