I just bought the Saber action figure from “Fate Stay Night” action figure from Revoltech, and I’ve been pretty impressed with it. I thought with the cheap price, it’d be a piece of junk that breaks or doesn’t do much. However, after playing with it for 3 hours, I was hooked. It has double joints and I made it do some fun sword slashing poses. But, without knowing how people stand when holding swords, it took some time to figure out how to make “Saber” stand right, and yeah, it wasn’t exactly easy to figure out how to make it stand right sometimes. I had the same problem with Gundam PGs.
I’ve never thought anyone would actually make an action figure out of Yotsuba from “Yotsubato” manga, but I’m sure glad that Revoltech (from Kaiyodo) did it. I’m not much of a “Yotsubato” fan, because I don’t think it’s as funny as Azumanga Daioh (I think its cast isn’t as funny as the cast in Azumanga Daioh), but a Yotsuba action figure from Revoltech? That’s a rather wacky idea.
From my experience with “Saber” from Revoltech, and reading the description of the Yotsubato action figure, it’s possible we have a winner here. Although again, I’m more intrigued than tickled and excited, because a “Yotsuba” isn’t my kind of action figure, or at least it isn’t my typical idea for an action figure, even with guns and all.
I hope it’s good like the 2nd generation “Saber” action figure. I’ll be playing with my Saber figure all day tomorrow, since I’ll have the day off (it’s the Taiwanese Nation-Founding Day or some shit like that).
Oh well, it’s bedtime for me here!
