This is the Revoltech series 061 from Kaiyodo. I do apologize first if his details are hard to see, as his suit is all black.
Note the cables/hoses on him, for a small figure, he has the most amount of soft and flexible PVC in my collection.
The soft PVC are used for his cables/hoses and shoulder armours, this allows flexibility of his joints while making the figure looks authentic. If he’d wore a black cape, he might be mistaken for… you know who…
Darth Vader: *heavy breathing*
It was stated that the panel on his chest armour is an electronic calculator but… On an armour suit? Suit control panel, then.
Another view of him. Kaiyodo had done a good job in putting all these details in a small-sized figure. As with most early Revoltech figures, his thighs are cut-joint ones instead of Revolver Joints but that doesn’t impede his movements.
The backpack is mainly to store ammunitions clips, a breathing filter apparatus (the lower cylinder) and a portable communications’ device (radio).
His elbows are limited to a 90 degree angle due to the hose on his arms. At best, you could do an 80…
As you can see, his legs can move just like a normal man with a skirt armour. And yes, his armour is quite shiny.
As with typical Revoltech figures, torso twisting isn’t a problem. The lower armour his torso is actually a soft PVC piece. And those eyes, they are glaring at you…
Wulf: HATERS GONNA HATE~!
First up, is the Maschinengewehr 34, or MG 34 machine gun. A nasty piece of hardware and good for softening up hard targets. 😉
The detailing is quite nice, even the air-cooled muzzle are replicated. Sadly the bipod is fix. There is an ammo belt slot on the machine gun which you could slot in the belt (which I’ve skipped, as the belt “might” broke, soft PVC does not help).
A menacing sight indeed. Mr Wulf here is ready to “tenderized” some meat.
He means business…
Wulf: Firing the MG 34 helps me to release some stress.
Next is the Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 or “paratrooper rifle 42”, a selective firing weapon, capable in giving someone or something new breathing holes.
Wulf: Livin’ the dreams, man. Livin’ the dreams…
For an early Revoltech, his poses are natural looking. Again, Kaiyodo had done a commendable job on the FG 42.
Kneeling is not a problem (something that David John would approved very much).
Storming the front.
Chargin’ in with guns ablazin’.
Lastly, his pistol, the Mauser C96. Although it looks small, it does however packs a big punch. Do note, that the C96 comes in two forms with this figure, one is the actual gun another is half of the C96 which was used when in storage in his left arm shield.
Not to forget, he comes with four types of hands (machine gripping, pistol gripping, opened palm and closed fist) and very stock-standard Revoltech stand (which I hardly used).
This sounds like trouble…
Introducing Ryotaro. This here figure was given as a X’mas gift from David John. Thanks, man.
The shock, is overwhelming… that he explodes… 😄
Marisa: OI~! Those are MY stars! da-ze.
Wulf: *runs off*
