Vash the Stamped, The Humanoid Typhoon, that guy who likes donuts (BEFORE Kamen Rider Wizard thank you)…and one one of the coolest most original characters in anime. I loved Trigun, and when I saw Revoltech made this figure I had to have it. With high expectations, I opened the box and began to pose…
I have been on a Revoltech kick as of late if you look at the other reviews. From Iron Man, the the Getter Robos. This guy though is a whole new level. The joints are clean, the hands swap great. I really don’t have a bad thing to say about this figure.
The accessory count is bountiful! 3 different faces to swap, the plethora of hands, including one fixed with the gun, so THAT won’t get lost, the cybernetic gun arm and the essential Love and Peace sign. We also have the action blast stand as well as the orange case to hold everything. Finally we have an effect for the pistol, the Revoltech stand and the sweetest extra, the piece of rubble for him to sit all brooding on.
The level of detail on Vash is astounding. Every buckle, every snap molded in. The greatest, sweetest, most amazing thing is his jacket. It has independent Revoltech joints so it can flap in the breeze, or give the motion effect.
Or just to spread around as he realizes that they probably given him a series that lasted more than 24 episodes. With this mastery of the flowing jacket I ask myself why haven’t they made a Spawn figure?
Revoltechs, while sturdy are not super heavy, so they can hold these mid air poses with no issues on their stands. I have to say the Revoltech stands are simple, but allow a lot of drama to be displayed.
Speaking of drama, Vash is able to show all kinds of emotion.
or just cold badassery.
If you are a fan of Trigun, or a fan of Revoltech, or just appreciate a freaking good figure, get Vash. He can be a chore to hunt down, but he is well worth it!
oh, quick bonus about Revoltechs…their joint system allows you to be modular, and this works with effect pieces, limbs and just about all.
