So, it begs the question, is it a Revoltech if it has no Revoltech joints?</p> <p><iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/uKhoEAUjNM8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p>The Revo Star Wars 006 X-Wing is a Revoltech in name only. The only joint is in the stand. It arrives courtesy of <strong><a href="https://www.hlj.com/product/kyd13006">HobbyLink Japan</a></strong></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837452-3/IMG_4367.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_4367.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837453-3/IMG_4368.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="IMG_4368.jpg" /></p> <p>The ship is about 5 inches long and made out of lightweight ABS plastic. The sculpt is tight, and the detail is great, but the thing feels like a cheap plastic model, not a $60 toy.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837454-3/P1042418.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042418.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837455-3/P1042419.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042419.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837457-3/P1042421.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042421.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837458-3/P1042422.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042422.jpg" /></p> <p>The S-foils have little tabs that keep the wings closed, but there's nothing to lock them into a horizontal positon. the result is the wings tilt out of place easily.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837456-3/P1042420.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042420.jpg" /></p> <p>With the wings open into attack position they are much more stable. The insides also feature nice paint detail.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837459-3/P1042423.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042423.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837460-3/P1042424.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042424.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837461-3/P1042425.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042425.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837463-3/P1042427.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042427.jpg" /></p> <p>The clear cockpit has a removable miniature figure of Luke Skywalker that can be removed. I wish the canopy opened on a hinge, but it just plugs in.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837462-3/P1042426.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042426.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837470-3/P1042434.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042434.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837471-3/P1042435.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042435.jpg" /></p> <p>The tiny R2-D2 has it's third leg extended, and can be fit into the spot behind the cockpit. To place him, you need to lift up the entire back panel which is on a hinge. Odd that there can be a hinge here, but not the canopy. Once closed, the fit is not too tight and R2 can move around. Turn the ship upside down and you may lose your droid.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837472-3/P1042436.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042436.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837473-3/P1042437.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042437.jpg" /></p> <p>The toy includes a set of swappable landing gear. You need to remove the tiny panels, and then replace them with the exposed gear. Each piece is keyed in such a way that they only fit in one spot.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837474-3/P1042438.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042438.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837467-3/P1042431.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042431.jpg" /></p> <p>Note the clear stand with the ONE Revoltech joint in the set,</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837469-3/P1042433.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042433.jpg" /></p> <p>The engines on the back are separate parts that just plug into the wings. As such, they can be easily misaligned or removed.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837465-3/P1042429.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042429.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/837466-3/P1042430.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042430.jpg" /></p> <p>There's another issue as well - one of the weapons on the wings is bent a little.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/837457-3/P1042421.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d357d67d9ff204c8dd8ebadc142f3473" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P1042421.jpg" /></p> <p>This thing looks great, and makes for a great desktop model, but as a toy it fails on many levels. Mainly this is due to the high price point and the lack of Revoltech joints. In addition, for the price there could have been many simple opportunities taken to improve this set:</p> <p>- Include a ladder and ground crew<br /> - include weapon effects like a blast for a Proton Torpedo<br /> - Include plugins for the engines to look like they are active<br /> - Make the landing gear part of the toy and have them extend<br /> - Give the cockpit a hinge<br /> - Use the Revo joints to make the wings open</p> <p>It just smacks of laziness, and a bit misleading to even call this a Revoltech toy.</p> <p>That being said, if you still want it, you can get yours at <strong><a href="https://www.hlj.com/product/kyd13006">HobbyLink Japan</a></strong><br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.

I quickly realized that was a nigh-unobtainable goal so I resigned myself to picking up the cool unit here and there. </p> <p>When Kaiyodo announced their Revoltech (or Revo for short) version, I admit, I was curious. How could they use Revoltech joints in a design like R2-D2? The design doesn't exactly lend itself to extreme articulation. </p> <p><iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/58JEkOG-uVQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p>The box is large and dark, which seems to be the thing with Star Wars packaging (see Star Wars Black). The R2 unit is displayed prominently in a big window, with a covered black space to the side. I assume all the parts and accessories are under there.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804981-3/P5030105.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030105.jpg" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/804982-3/P5030106.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030106.jpg" /></p> <p>Uh... where are the parts? Where are the instructions? That's right, there aren't any. You get only R2 and the pull back motor baseplate. Perhaps all the gimmicks are self-contained in the toy itself.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804983-3/P5030109.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030109.jpg" /></p> <p>Sad to say, there are almost NO gimmicks with this R2. No pop up lightsaber or sensorscope. No articulating arms. What you do get is a rather nice R2 with some less-than stellar joints. At least it looks good.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804984-3/P5030112.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030112.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/804985-3/P5030113.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030113.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/804986-3/P5030114.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030114.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/804987-3/P5030115.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030115.jpg" /></p> <p>The first interesting gimmick is the ability to change the color of the light on the front of R2's face. Turning the dial will change it from red to blue. Keep in mind, it doesn't actually light - that would take effort on Kaiyodo's part.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804988-3/P5030116.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030116.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/804989-3/P5030117.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030117.jpg" /></p> <p>Then there's the third leg. Officially, R2 stores the third leg up in it's cavity so it can be deployed at a moments notice. Apparently Kaiyodo thought there wasn't enough room in the hollow plastic body and decided to make it attach with a faux Revoltech joint. When I mean faux, i mean that it's just a peg in the shape of a revoltech joint. It doesn't actually bend. However the foot part IS connected with a proper Revoltech joint.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804990-3/P5030118.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030118.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/804991-3/P5030119.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030119.jpg" /></p> <p>You can see the breakdown of parts here. Note that the legs, head, and center leg use fake Revoltech joints.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804992-3/P5030120.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030120.jpg" /></p> <p>I can't even reconnect the items back into an interesting combination.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804993-3/P5030121.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030121.jpg" /></p> <p>If you take out one of the foot joints and rotate it, you can do this. </p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804994-3/P5030122.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030122.jpg" /></p> <p>The main gimmick of this release is the pull-back base. It's a clunky, solid piece that has one fake and two real Revoltech joints. I'd tell you to remove the feet of R2 and attach here, but the feet have already fallen off by now due to the loose connection points.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804995-3/P5030123.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030123.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/804996-3/P5030124.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030124.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804997-3/P5030125.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030125.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/804998-3/P5030126.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030126.jpg" /></p> <p>So here's the deal - Yes, it looks nice. But for almost $50 USD, it doesn't do much of anything. It would have been so easy to give it some panels that opened with little Revoltech Joints, made the leg retractable, made the regular feet have rollers, use actual Revoltech joints instead of dummy plugs, hell, even electric lights or sounds. </p> <p>At least you can mix and match with other Revoltechs.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/804999-3/P5030127.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030127.jpg" /><img src="/gallery2/d/805000-3/P5030128.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=bf2d89ff321881c75d2f5eaad1d53ea8" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="P5030128.jpg" /><br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.

The back of the box features details about the figure and pictures of some of the more striking poses the figure is capable of.</p> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799528-3/IMG_8198.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="612" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799529-3/IMG_8199.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="611" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <p>The figure itself, along with its accessories ( including six hands; 2 closed fist, 2 open palm, 2 with trigger figure extended), rests in a clear 2-part plastic tray.</p> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799531-3/IMG_8203.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="629" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <p><P>When you remove the figure from the tray, you'll find that there are small pieces of plastic embedded within the joints of the figures which need to be removed.</p> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799532-3/IMG_8204.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799533-3/IMG_8205.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <p>Among its included accessories is a partial stand and tab to connect the figure to the stand. I'm not sure why, but there is no base included to attach the stand to. Perhaps it was omitted from the box somehow but I don't see any place it would have been stored. To actually pose the figure, I was forced to borrow the stand that came with the <a href="http://www.iquantascores.com/toy_review/2014/flyboy_zombie">figma Flyboy Zombie</a>. Fortunately, it was more or less compatible.</p> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799534-3/IMG_8207.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="369" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <p><P>Sculpting on the figure is excellent but there were a couple of blemishes in the paint on the helmet. There is a small scuff in the black band around the head as well as a smudge on the left temple. You really only see these on close inspection though and the figure looks fine from a few feet away.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/799536-3/IMG_8209.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /><img src="/gallery2/d/799537-3/IMG_8210.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></p> <p>Among the accessories that <i>were</i> in the box are two weapons; a blaster and blaster rifle.</p> <div align="center"><b>Blaster</b><img src="/gallery2/d/799538-3/IMG_8213.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <div align="center"><b>Blaster rifle</b><img src="/gallery2/d/799539-3/IMG_8217.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799541-3/IMG_8221.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/799540-3/IMG_8218.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /><img src="/gallery2/d/799542-3/IMG_8222.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></p> <p>The Stormtrooper features revoltech joints at the waist, wrists, knees, and ankles with double joints on the neck and shoulders. The toes feature a more traditional joint. People with greater imagination and patience than me are likely to achieve some excellent poses.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/799676-3/IMG_8234.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper " /><img src="/gallery2/d/799678-3/IMG_8237.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper " /></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/799679-3/IMG_8238.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper " /><img src="/gallery2/d/799680-3/IMG_8239.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper " /></p> <p>I preferred to just imagine that Bowser from Sha-Na-Na was under the helmet.</p> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799543-3/IMG_8223.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <p>As you likely know, I tend to personally prefer a less dynamic appearance to my figures and in keeping with Revoltech tradition, this one is sculpted such that it appears constantly ready to spring into action. The shoulders look tense, the chest is constantly leaning slightly forward and of course it's crotch thrusting. </p> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799545-3/IMG_8226.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="410" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper" /></div> <p>The figure feels solid, like it can take a lot of abuse as you try to achieve your favorite poses, however I should point out that the stand on the blaster rifle does NOT move. It looks like it does and I actually tried to lower it, but instead broke it clear off. A small bad of glue reattached it fine, but I don't want you to make the same mistake I did. </p> <p>Lastly, I had a little bit of fun with the figure and swapped the head with one of the heads from the Flyboy figure (again, the joints were compatible) to create a zombie Stormtrooper! </p> <div align="center"><img src="/gallery2/d/799685-3/IMG_8241.jpg?g2_GALLERYSID=d883366d76ef6ef8d986ed48b28f6005" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Stormtrooper " /></div> <p>Overall, I found the toy to be a well made figure that is fun to fiddle with, but not my personal cup of tea for display.</p> <p><br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.
