No way. :o

I allready posted earlier in this thread that an Ingram was in the pipeline.

I'm down for Getter 1, 2, Eva 01, Ingram and maybe Dougram for now.

I look forward to seeing what else they do, the selection is delightfully random. :p

Oh, I do remember that, have no fear. It's just exciting to see a page online that looks vaguely official!!! :p

Exactly. Besides, I never read your earlier post, Fort Max :p

But I really shouldn't get too excited until I see pics of thing, and I would squeal with undying glee if a Griffon was made.

I can't believe I somehow missed this toyline entirely, but I just saw it in ToyFare, and now I am totally psyched. I'll probably end up getting one EVA, but for now, bring on the Dougram, and maybe even some same scale/size VOTOMS figures. That would be tight. I'm gonna need like 6 of that Dougram figure tho... cuz I'll have to repaint some in Battletech schemes :lol:

This month's Figure Oh magazine gives you a free EVA 00 clear version of the upcoming Revoltech Figures, and it shows you all the joints in the thing.

I'm interested about that myself. Because if's a pack in with the magazine, it looks like i'll be picking up this issue in a heartbeat. Otherwise it looks like i'll just have to wait for the standard releases.

That's not fair...howcome we don't get full sized action figure pack ins in our American magazines? You guys get resin coinversion parts, special decal sheets, and whole figures, and all we get is cards and postcards... <_<

So, anyone got any ideas on how to get this issue?

I just picked up my Dougram today from the shop.

Yes, it can do all those poses seen in the photos. But the thing is made out of that rubbery soft PVC stuff though. I was hoping for harder ABS plastic.

One downside to the ability to do all that dramatic posing is that the figure can't stand straight. You see all those 'big nut' poses with the legs spread apart? You can only stand them that way. They won't close their legs!

The pic of the Ingram above with the big nut pose says it all.

Oh man oh man oh man, I want my Dougram NOW! I don't mind the big nut poses at all... truth be told, every single figure in my room on ym shelves is in a spread leg pose... only thing standing up straight is the Yamato Scopedog and GBP-1S 1/48 so they don't fall over :lol:

But seriously, how does the figure hold up? Is it really soft PVC, or like, pretty rugged, but not ABS? Is there barrel sagging? I figured that the big gun would be all warped outta whack in the box, and I'll have to fix it with hot water or a hair dryer... gah, I can't decide if I'm really upset or not yet about them being PVC...

Its not eraser rubber soft but PVC is still PVC. Don't expect a crisp paint job like in the pics too. Real thing is more matt and not as crisp.

The linear cannon in my example wasn't the slightest bit warped though. But its still made of that PVC crap.

Hmm, i'm starting to have second thoughts about ordering all of the first releases from one of my local import stores... but i'm just hoping the mere amount of poseability they have will make them worth it...

Same here... I've already got my Dougram pre-ordered, but I'll certainly not pre-order anymore until I get it and really go over it... stupid PVC bastards.

Who's the dumb ass executive making the PVC decision? :huh: That is like you finally got Carmen Electra onto your bed and decided to play scramble...:blink:

PVC over ABS is probably on a cost issue i'd think. That's why the Revoltech series is quite cheap compared to other japanese action figures.

*shudders at the thoughts of Bubblegum Crisis*

Well, they are very poseable, but within their own limits (e.g. the big nut limitation). Don't expct as much flexibility as those old GI Joe figs with the rubber band thingy though.

E.g. on the dougram, some of the joints allow 2D movement only, not 3D.

Hasn't Kaiyodo used PVC for almost all of it's figures for a long time now? I guess my point is I'm not surprised they used it on these. Disappointed, but not surprised. I might check out an EVA, but the rest of this line doesn't appeal to me. Not because of the characters, but because of the apparent inability to hold a neutral pose. The new joints are cool. I almost hope a better toy company steals the design to use on better toys.

Well don't know if anyone is still interested now that we found out the Revoltechs are made out of PVC <_< , but FantoFan is offering up orders for the Figure Oh #100 that comes with the clear yellow EVA 00 that was mentioned on page 3:

Well, even if it IS PVC, I am completely sold on the Dougram.... but I'm not sure what to say about those last two photos in the Dante review of Dante-ougram...:lol:
