Tamashii Compositve Ver Ka Virtual On Temjin
Disappointing that this is in the Composite line, because it essentially means that there wont be anything more than Temjin released. Bleh. I was excited at the thought of this being in the RD line.
Since they have the license maybe they'll do a RD next?
Oh god I hope so! Easier to amass a collection that way AND it's a line PERFECT for the license!
I don't think the license works that way, though. Most licenses are a per-toyline, per-scale deal. Not to say that Bandai couldn't get a license for RD Virtual On figures if they wanted to, but the existence of this doesn't guarantee the other.
Composite Ver. Ka has diecast?
This is the first time I've heard of it. Source?
No. They don't.
You know, now that I think of it, the Ver.Ka Composite line was really the only place something like the Temjin could fit - the VO designs by nature are massively-belabeled-tampo-printed-overkill, which wouldn't go well with the simplified RD aesthetic.
Hrm. I hope reports of Composite Lancelot Albion will be favorable, but I'm not expecting much. GFF reviewers have rarely talked about durability, which is one thing that I hope this toy will have. If this turns out to be a great statue and a bad toy with loose joints that pop off easily, it will be too much to bear.
I've got one on order - I'll certainly proffer my thoughts on it when it arrives. I'm a little torn because the old Fix Figurations are pretty bleh - nonexistent poseability, terrible materials, but awesome in appearance. The GFF Metal Composites, on the other hand, have a much better balance of appearance, poseability, and construction. These, while not having any metal in them, hopefully will be more similar to the larger GFFMC's than to the old fixes. I wont cross fingers or anything, but I'll keep an open mind.
I think these will be more similar to GFFN than anything else. But thank you, my heart is somewhat satisfied knowing you will review one. I just hope that this satisfaction isn't crushed into utter despondency if the line turns out to be bad. :X
Nothing on the tamashii.jp site about this other than that image just yet. I'm sure they'll put up a proper page soonish, probably this weekend.
And on cue, the site has been updated. Just remember to tone down your sound else the on-site BGM blasts your ears.
Everyone's getting excited about this, including Tamashii Web Staff, who debuted their twitter with the advent of the announcement. This "Dr. Watari" is pretty excited too. I -wonder- who he could be. :X
Awesome bgm .
Click the main image on the website. It cycles while a dashing sound plays. Good god, Japan's love for Virtual On runs deep.
Thats awesome . What I dont like though is the tampoed stuff .
Something about the head looks off, like it's too stretched out vertically, but otherwise it looks fairly nice. Wont buy it, though.
Yeah, I agree. Katoki's proportioning on my favorite designs like Exia and Temjin have been a little off (a lot off in Exia's case), but it's still a Temjin toy that will be fairly articulated and hopefully, durable. Beggars can't be choosers.
Still hoping for SIDE VR though. :x
Guys. I know the amount of people who care about Virtual On AND Composite Ver Ka. can be counted in one hand, but for those people who are unaware:
COMPOSITE VER KA TEMJIN IS A GOOD TOY. A VERY GOOD TOY. Joints are stiff, tight, and durable. The only exception are the rubber ball joints that are on the hands that are like all ver. kas. They can tear if you're not careful in adjusting them, but just liberally apply shock oil in the wrist sockets; the fit is so tight that it won't make it go horribly loose anyway. Instead, it'll just make the force move to moving the hand balljoint, instead of moving the stem of the hand balljoint...which makes the stem snap. Oh, and paint applications can get spotty.
BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT IS AN AMAZING TOY FIT FOR ANY VIRTUAL ON FAN.
