Vault Review: Revoltech #114
Alucard from Hellsing

Alucard  comes with plenty of accessories, most of which are extra body parts.  He comes with a total of three faces: one is looking straight, one looking left and chewing on a crucifix, and one looking right with a toothy grin.  That third one is my favorite.  But I’m pretty impressed with the detail in all the faces.  I couldn’t catch it on camera, but each their eyes have a tiny cat-shaped iris.

Along with the faces, Al also comes with nine alternate hands.  Each of them is wearing white gloves with the occult markings printed on the back.  There is a pair of fists, a pair of trigger fingers, and a pair with splayed fingers.  For more dramatic scenes there’s a pair that holds one of his disembodied eyes in a dark square.  But my favorite is his flat palmed hand, which he uses to kill ghouls by ramming it through them.  This hand also comes with an accompanying blood splatter plate for added effect.  It looks pretty cool, even if you do have to use a stand to hold it up.

Alucard’s other accessories are his wide brimmed hat, his black and silver guns, and two pairs of red tinted glasses.  I’m pretty sure they included two because they’re so tiny and it wouldn’t take much to lose one.  Alucard also comes with a blood splattered base for one foot, and a more traditional Revoltech stand which can hold the blood effect or plug into his back.

I’m pretty happy with how this figure turned out.  His articulation is fun, especially the coat.  I also really love his facial expressions.  He comes with so many accessories that it’s hard to complain, but I would have really enjoyed seeing a giant eyeball dog arm attachment.  I’m also really hoping they make a Seras Victoria figure because Alucard seems a bit incomplete on my shelves without her hanging around.

    Eyeball dog attachment would have been great or a Vlad the Impaler variant head. I would love a Seras, too, but after reading the manga in its entirety, my opinion of it as a whole is tarnished. :p I can still pretend that the anime is better than it was. 🙂

    I received this figure two weeks ago, and I love it. I’m going to be on the lookout for the Himura Kenshin figure, as well as the two Trigun figures. I love posing Alucard, and it made me start watching the OVA’s they’ve released. I think they’re pretty cool.

      Does yours have a loose neck joint? (the inner chest cavity one)

      • Bigbot

        It kind of is loose, but it doesn’t flop down or anything like that. Actually, when I first opened the figure, I tried to take his head off on the upper part of the neck. When I did, the joint came out in half, with the other half staying inside the neck. Apparently when he was assembled they put that joint together wrong so the peg was smashed in. I was able to straighting it out, but I wouldn’t be able to turn the figure. I went ahead and swithced that joint out with the one in the chest cavity. Now it’s fine, but the lower neck is a little loose.

      If you find him, then be very careful with the Kenshin figure. The hands use that Revoltech swivel wrist instead of the 3mm Revoltech joint. Those wrist pins/pegs are delicate. He only comes with one right hand sword hand, and mine broke the first time I tried swapping hands. I’m used to how delicate some Revoltech figures are, but those wrist swivel joints are scary soft.

      Right now Kenshi is stuck in poses as he is about to draw his blade. Someday I’ll fix his hand and he’ll be able to properly hold his sword.

    man, i’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again… were it not for the scale, i’d be a die hard revoltechnician. they do make some damned cool looking figs, and they certainly don’t skimp on accessories. get these up to the 6 to 7 inch range, and there’s a plethora of properties i’d love to see them dip into, in addition to buying wholesale into the properties they’ve already covered. but the first couple i snagged were just too damned small. when i relapsed and bought in on the fist of the north star prison guard, who is huge compared to say dante, he’s still just too petite to really fit into my universe w/ the sense of awe i want him to have. too many motuc and legends lurking around who absolutely dwarf him. but man, next to my few gi joes, he looks the part he’s intended to.

    that said, man, revoltech makes the MU and DCIH offerings look like fresh hemorroids.

    • Fire King Xi

      I would frakkin hope so.

      Revoltech should be a much better looking toy than MU or DCIH. I’d feel completely ripped off if a $50 imported toy from Japan looked like a $9 toy from Walmart. Not too mention they are in completely different scales.

      With that said, every Revoltech and Figma figure I buy makes me ten times more appreciative of American toys from Hasbro, Mattel, and everybody else. Unlike a certain Saber Alter figure from Figma, I’ve never had a shoulder joint on a MOTUC figure sheer off. Even if I did, I could rob another MOTUC figure of his or her shoulder, and make a fix of it. That’s something I can’t do with certain Saber Alter figure from Figma, because they decided to use 2-3 different sized shoulder joints in their line.

      If Superman, Captain America, and Snake Eyes decide to leap off the top shelf…. No big deal. I can put the right back up there. If Geno-Breaker or Black Rock Shooter jump from the same shelf…. I’ll have a bunch of parts for future customs. 🙁
