Revoltech Shin Getter Robo and Dougram.

Seeing as Convoy will be part of this line in the future, I figured this would be a good oportunity to get a good look at the revoltech joint system. So far I'm very impressed. Hopefully he adds Dante soon. I really want that one.

first one, very promicing, second one, Grrrrr. Friends don't let friends make two nuckle hinges. :x

Have to admit though, I more than likely will buy the Prime and Megs nomatter how many crappy loose hinges they cover them with.

I really want that Dougram, even though it lacks lateral leg movement. It's just such a cool looking Mech.

What do you mean exactly? The toys or the characters?

If you're talking about the toys themselves, they're part of a new action figure line called Revoltech. Basically they came up with a new kind of joint for action figures that alows a very large range of motion. It apears to be an even greater range than ball joints.

Definately. I don't know much about Dougram. Here's it's wiki though. It was apparently the first successful real robot show after Gundam.

Shin Getter Robo on the otherhand is the last in a series of anime from way back. Getter Robo is among the oldest of the super robots.

i realy like the way you cant see how the joint is moving, they give the robot form an organic movement, id love to bash 1 or 2 but they might be a bit expensie just for joints

I plan on getting a Shin Getter and a Dante at the very least eventually. Might also go for Convoy if it looks nice and has lots of extras.
