Well, there was no way I was going to pass up on one of these!!! It’s YOTSUBA!!!! in revolvtech form!

(Note: the title of the post was from one of my fave yotsuba sketches (when she goes around shooting ppl with a water pistol quoting a movie she just saw. It’s not a dig at ppl who bought yotsuba by implying they are pedo. Though Don over at orbital, is…)

As always, click on the pics for bigger versions.

Yotsuba comes with a few accessories, namely, a replacement head, water pistol, ice cream, different hands to hold said items and a base and stand to help pose her.

Overall, however, I must say that Yotsuba is much less posable than  the other revolvtechs that I have purchased. But then again, she doesn’t really need to be. The shoulders were a rather odd design, with there being 2 joints to pose the arms. At times, the parts do tend to grind with the body, making the arms stiff and hard to move so some care has to be taken when posing the arms.

The legs were much less of an issue once you are able to rotate the legs around the shorts area. Initially, those parts were stiff and would not rotate, meaning that the legs would be at an angle if they were ever bent at the hips.

The only real problem I have with this revolvtech are the joints, which show up quite badly, esp the ankles and elbows. But due to the design of the figure, I don’t think even the new Fraulein line  of revolvtech figures would do much better, since the parts are all exposed. The process of replacing the hand can also be a hassle as you do need to give it some force to both take the original hand off and the new one on. At times, you do wonder if you’ll break the tab which holds the hand in place…

Overall, the figure is solid and, while it doesn’t have the flexibility of poses like my sabers or dangaioh, you’re not really going to be doing those kind of poses with Yotsuba.  It would have been nice to have a few more facial expressions tho.

Also, a PVC figure of Fuuka is to be released soon and it a matching scale to yotsuba, allowing you to pose the 2 together. I wonder how big a Scale Jumbo would be…

“save your excuses for the devil”

Yotsuba Vs Yanda

Massugu GO!!

And just for wierdness…

Initially, I was going to swap parts with saber, but the different scale of the figures meant that the parts would not match as they would either be too big or too small. Pinky St however…

Scary…

The pinky St figures all have quite large heads as part of their design. It was just luck that the neck joints were also of similar size, and since my Shinguji Sakura was the only Pinky St figure out at the time…

What do you think? Would you give Yotsuba a sword?
