Dante Series 003 Revoltech Yamaguchi Action Figure by Kaiyodo


En realidad, no se si alguien me extrañó (eso espero, por el bien y la continuidad de este blog...) pero si no lo hicieron, aún hay una poderosa motivación interna para seguir fastidiando la red virtual: quiero que muchos sepan que en Colombia hay alguien con algo que decir y algo que mostrar, punto.

Hoy voy a "fastidiar" a mis visitantes con algo que llamó poderosamente mi atención, a pesar de que resistí durante mucho tiempo la tentación de adquirir más figuras Revoltech...


Basada en un exitoso videojuego tipo Hack and Slash (combate estilizado con armas de corto alcance) de Capcom llamado Devil May Cry (que inicialmente se pensó como un desarrollo paralelo a Resident Evil, pero que tomó vida propia), se trata de su protagonista: Dante, un asesino de demonios (suena bastante interesante, pero no he tenido la oportunidad de jugar este juego).

Esta figura de 6" de alto (aprox.) es rica en detalle y su trabajo de pintura me impactó. Por supuesto su nivel de articulación es el que se espera del sistema Revolver Joint, e incluye el gabán. 


Aunque el rostro resulta un poco "caricaturesco" (hay dos cabezas disponibles), el set está bien hecho y está complementado por muy lindos accesorios, como una enorme espada, un par de pistolas (una plateada y una negra), una escopeta de doble cañón recortado, un arma que no se define entre una guitarra (!!!???) y un hacha, y su base de exhibición... 

Espero que la disfruten como lo hago yo =)))))

ENGLISH

Actually I don’t know if someone missed me (I hope so, for the sake and the continuity of this blog...) but if you didn’t, there is still a strong internal motivation to keep me pestering the virtual network: I want many people to know that in Colombia there is someone with something to say and something to show, period.

Today I’m going to "annoy" my visitors with something that caught my attention, although for a long time I resisted the temptation to acquire more Revoltech figures...


Based on a successful Hack and Slash type videogame (highly stylized combat with short-range weapons) by Capcom called Devil May Cry (originally conceived as a parallel development to Resident Evil, but took own life), it’s the protagonist: Dante, a demon slayer (sounds quite interesting, but I haven’t had the opportunity to play this game).

This 6" high figure (approx.) is rich in detail and its paint job blew me away. Of course, the level of articulation is the expected from the Revolver Joint system, and includes the trench coat. 


Though the face looks a bit "cartoonish" (there are two heads available), the set is well made and is complemented by nice accessories, like a huge sword, a pair of pistols (one silver and one black), a double-barreled shotgun, a weapon that is not defined between a guitar (!!!???) and an axe, and its display base... 

I hope that you enjoy it as I do =)))))

Liked his revo figure, though it would have been better if he was given the new Yamaguchi rehaul(more joints) still I like the guitar

well, i dunno bout that new line of Revoltech, though i think his "old" line is pretty well done & the level of articulation is more than enough... TYSM for commenting here Mikee,i began to think that i was alone in the world XDDD =D

You will not get forgotten bro, at least not now. Lol... I don't play 'Devil May Cry' but heard the game rocks! As for the anime, to me it's just so so. Maybe the toonised face follows the anime look. Great posing and remarkable articulation there. Should be pleasing for someone like you who likes many accessories and changeable hands and heads.

man, ur support is always welcome =D... yep, u r absolutely right, this is just the kind of figures that i like the most: plently of details, with great paint job & a lot of accesories !!!

this revoltech figure to me its a bit too plain. hmm.. maybe cause i like Dante so very much! XD. It somehow fails to recreate the expression and fierceness that dante always had in the game. And with now with him featuring in the upcoming Marvel VS Capcom 3, i would really like to see him in a sh figuarts or figma.

chrismandesign said...

hehehe, i think the correct word for that is not plain but neat... as Dennis mentioned, probably this figure is based on the anime version & not in the videogame version (that is darker & a bit motley)... i don’t hav any SH Figuart or Figma figures in my collection, so i don’t hav a reference of quality, detail & paint job to compare with Revoltech figures, anyway i find them (Revoltech) pretty good action figures =)

pues ya ve mijo, que hay quienes se quejan de estas figuras (porque algunas sí tienen problemas de ajuste o trabajo de pintura o que las piezas se le sueltan fácil y cosas por estilo...) pero hay que reconocer que son a un precio cómodo (en muchos casos, no en todos) y ójala tuvieran la robustez de las piecitas que ya conocemos de Marvel Legends y que tales... ahhhhh y sip, me extrañan !!! pa’ que sepa perro y no me las doy =PPPPP
