I know, It’s been a long while since I’ve ordered and reviewed a Sci-Fi Revoltech action figure. That’s mostly due to them not producing any more Godzilla kaiju. But I did decide to pull the trigger and order their latest movie Iron Man release, the Mark III Armor.
I’ve been pretty interested in Bandai’s SH MonsterArts line ever since it was announced earlier this year. Not only would it deliver our first super articulated Godzilla figure, but it would have to keep the same quality we were accustomed to from the Sci-Fi Revoltech line.
I was really looking forward to the twenty-third figure in the Sci-Fi Revoltech line. Not only is Gigan one of Godzilla’s main enemies, but he’s a fairly prominent kaiju. Surely his solicitation signified that the Sci-Fi line was moving on to the more prominent and popular members of the Godzilla-verse, right?
Just before Winter Wonder Festival 2011, we put out an open call for questions to ask the various companies that attended the show. Our own Robert Baldwin caught up with many of the company representatives and got a few interesting answers and some big news concerning the future of the Sci-Fi Revoltech line.
Over the weekend IAT’s very own Robert Baldwin (a.k.a. Dorkey, on our forums) was kind enough to brave the cold weather and long lines to bring us coverage of the newest and coolest toys that will be coming out of Japan this year. So check out part 1 of our Winter Wonder Fest galleries, with more to come later this week.
I was surprised when Kaiyodo announced number twenty in their Sci-Fi Revoltech line was going to be a skeleton warrior from the film Jason and the Argonauts. The works of Ray Harryhausen are perfect for this line, and there’s no better figure to illustrate this point than the reanimated skeleton warrior.
Number nineteen in Revoltech’s Sci-Fi line is Toho’s second giant monster, Anguirus. A loyal friend to Godzilla with a tenacious fighting style, Anguirus has become one of the most loved kaiju among fans. Plus, I’m also hoping that between his and Rodan’s inclusion in the line, Godzilla can’t be too far behind.
