Revoltech Chousokabe Motochika

Like Date, This guy was bought from SoA, this time, in Richmond center, and by george what a humble little store, classics Tf's Figmas Nendo's and Super robots, Kamen rider, And Revoltechs. There cheaply prices(or maybe this is due to evertoys high prices ^^;) And Yes I'd comeback once I get more moolah >=]

"One eyed Mizuchi of the islands...now all he needs is some cool shades"



same old same old, (I'm lazy but its the smae old box packaging)

*In the flesh,or plastic, the figure Him/itself*


*Now The Box content*



Not that much, you got his Anchor, Hands, Stands, Effect stand, Face, Good ol Orange box, and "useless" coin

*The Head*


Problem with his default face, its hard to detach...unless




You have Face obsessed prime/Bay Convoy. Jk ^^;

Kidding aside, you can wiggle the face off the head, don't worry, the peg is tough


And The face expression is still laughable, though its better atleast

*Articulation*


Boy are you gonna be surprised to what I have to say after this section

*The Arms*



Really, wtf? It just popped of when I raised the arms up. Bad joint, BAD!

So Pretty decent except with the clothes restricting his movements

*Accessories*

Dat Anchor


Chains with revoltech joints(actually one of them popped off, but thankfully, I managed to fix it)

Yep it can separate

The Only difference from these three hands, two of them has there peg swivel left and right, the other one's peg swivel up and down

Up and down


Left and right


And the effect part btw, just a purple-ish pink recolor



Yes, He can surf on his anchor, whichever way he chooses to ride on it, its still hilariously awesome, and ridiculous.


*This is so Blasphemy, but a complaint section!*

Remember this loose as hell

So is his neck


yeah sure extra articulation...

...At a heavy price


Fucking GAPS!


MORE FUCKING GAPS( and yes the neck has gap as seen in the Head section)!!


The sash keeps popping off in this area(btw his pants come with fake pockets)


And...this...Really revoltech

WOW When I bought this Figure, I though it stood the same level as Date would, seing his newer and shit. Well I really sont have any complaints with Date, his Structure design is Solid. Now Chosokabe, (dont hate me for this Chosokabe fans Hate Revoltech for this) His really flimpsy, his loose and That Gaps, FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!! I hate those Gaps, They dont even need to be there, I would fill those gaps Right now, If I had the right paint to do so, FFFFFF!!! Now The looseness issue, The arms, there pegs joints wont fully fit in the arms propperly thus it tends to fall off. ANd The Right leg, Though this couldprbably be mine, but it doesnt seem to be fully attached to its socket compared to the left leg. Im Dissapoint Revoltech.

Lookie, a silver lining in the chains


Now if it werent for my SRW fanboyism and insane(frankensteinish like) ideas...

...We would get this!


"Hook has nothing on me >=]"




Eat your Heard out The End and Neo Getter

*Poses*







Fishing...o_0...and no chair?


Well I'm a pansy then

*Conclusion*

"Im on a Boat bitch!"



So this guy worth it after that ridiculous rant of mine a few sections ago, well...hmm, I'd still say go for it, even if your not a Sengoku basara fan(though I have no idea how you can't like that show)But you will be bugged at how loose this guy get after a few play and posing. Now if only they gave him that adorable little Parrot in the game and the anime would I consider droping all this crap that I just mentioned(yeah right)

A side from loose joint I think this figure still look okay to me. I hope you get this at a good price.

Those huge gaps are the factors that made me not to consider any revoltechs, other than maybe, mechs (but i can always opt for the best option - Robot Damashii). I bought my first figma and joints are snug/tight. Saw Revoltech Frauleins at a shop but the shoulders doesnt seem very articulated.

Dude, you rock with those crazy mods you made. =D

chrismandesign said...

even with their problems, Revoltech figures r still good figures, specially for the great articulation they hav, but i miss the durability of the "classic" american action figures, made for last, with great & durable articulation (i mean, something like Marvel Legends or even Mattel DCU line) & well, their lack of details is a problem in the past... this time u were crazier than before with ur "Frankenstories" LOL... great !!!

Aya said...

MUGEN PUNCH FTW!

Mikee said...

>>LEon: I got this Guy at the same price as HLJ's, no shipping and handling of course ^^

>>EXkuro: True true, but hey The other super robot line they made were pretty snug

>>BD77: Oh yeah, I gotta post updates soon, thanks

>>Chrismandesign: I do eh, hahah. Yeah I think plastic back at those days were sturdy as heck. Oh well damn oil price rise.

>>Aya: Yeah, Revo could do better.

>>ZOiDieCT: YESH!!!

mangyver5223 said...

pretty cool this figure, except its hard to remove its face XD

heathorn said...

ouch, loose joints.
Actually I like this design, and I think revo does great job nowadays. But what's always a minus is the facial expression.

Very detail review on this Basara Revoltech. He really has got a huge weapon that he could toss around. The hole on the hand does give the figurine a better grip.

B-Mecha said...

This guy is having bad sales in singapore (in fact all the sengoku basara revoltech lol). People don't like them mainly because of the face and the weird gaps (well, to make sure the articulation is good @__@)

But I like your way of playing with it. Mugen Punch!!!!

Mikee said...

>> Mangyver: It fixes itself pretty fast

>> Heathorn: I think the face are funneh :P

>> Dennis: Now all he needs is another thumbs up hand, then all is well

>> B-Mecha: WHATT!!! Aww mang that means lower prices ffffff!

Now I want to play SRW
