Revoltech Arch Gurren Lagann

Early August, I reserved for a Revoltech Gloomy Bear as a birthday gift to myself. I ended up with an Arch Gurren Lagann because the store overlooked my reservation and sold off all their stocks of the Gloomy Bear. -_- Contacting the shop was such a headache. Their contact number and email addresses were of no use. I had to ask some contacts a way to get in touch with the shop or its owners. Thank goodness somebody was able to help. Thanks also to Plurk or I might still be at lost today.

Inside the box is Arch Gurren Lagann itself, display stand parts, extra hands (open-fist), neon green-colored punch effects, and a 10-point Revoltech token. This figure is bigger compared to the Ricky and Yotsuba Revoltechs I have. I guess that what makes it more expensive compared to them other than its nice details.

The joints are easy to move and rotate although it’s so hard to keep the figure standing up. The display stand wasn’t much of a help. It should have been heavier and thicker in my opinion.

Took me an hour to get a hang of positioning the figure. There’s a limited number of positions it could do, but there are times the Arch Gurren Lagann can stand on its own without the stand. ^_^ The rest of the pics from the (simple) shoot are here. I used a Nikon D80 and Lumix FS5.

The Arch Gurren Lagann (and its other transformations) is probably the only other mecha that I like other than Gundams. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is one series I enjoyed, so I have been wanting to get some of its merchandise. I’ll get a Yoko next time. 😀
