Promoted Review: Royal Mail - StealthDelivery- Revoltech Alien

Nov 11 // Kristina Pino
Figure name: Tokusatsu Revoltech Alien WarriorFigure Maker: KaiyodoRetail Price: ¥2,714 HLJ AmiAmi Hobby Search Shadow Mask Prime   Enjoying a Nice Cup of Joe, or whatever you call it... Never understood calling a drink by a human name. And if you were going to call it by a human name, there are plenty of better ones, like Cathy. Wait a sec, what's this? "Son of a Bit-" Ulp, that's going to leave a mark. Well here we are, what the Postie Stealth delivered to me today. And I mean Stealth Delivered. I do not hear any knocking (I usually hear when someone knocks on my door when I'm in bed). There was nothing put through my door to say it was delivered; and it was Registered SAL, so I believe that needs a signature. I just opened my door to check, and well, it is a good thing I'm not a toy, else I might have been stealth killed like the Classic Revoltech alien above... As there it was, tucked behind the door that leads to me and my neighbour, again. But seriously, Mister Postman, are you forging my signature? Are you even knocking at all? What the hell? I think I will go to the Post Office to inquire further some time, because who knows what else they will forge my signature for... but enough about that. This is a review of the Revoltech Alien Warrior... This is not just a simple case of a new head - It does feel like this one is a fair improvement in many ways over the Classic Alien. While it has to be said that when it comes to being creepy, the Classic is, well Classic. The colours, the look, and the rather human feel of it... they are very unsettling. However the new Revoltech Warrior is a lot more fierce-looking. More beast-like. The difference is like between finding a decomposing dead body and finding a wolf. One will really unsettle you and make you feel uneasy, while the other, you know that it is dangerous, and it will try to Kill you, so that is what drives your fear of it. I don't know why, but it feels it can better assume some more animal like poses than the Classic. I don't know if it actually is any better at posing than the Classic, but I do believe that while it may be possible for both monsters to crouch, only the new Warrior can make it look good. And I do mean good, I mean, look at this creature. It is crouching ready to strike and rip your liver out. This is mostly due to the least cosmetic change to the figure. It has new arms (two sets, with blades out, and with blades folded into the arm... I think?), new hands (two sets again, both claws ready to rip out your lungs and use them to breathe), new feet, and, most obvious, a new head. However, that thing sticking out of the back of the neck has been changed too. It now folds down for better head movement. Or if you're like me, then you can just pull that damned thing out entirely for TOTAL HEAD TILTBACKABILITY! Ah, that's better... The neck also seems to be different, as though it has also been redone for better head movement. All in all, this one feels a lot more like the one I worked with when I worked on the recent Aliens Vs Predator game. However it isn't just this new head tilting feature that makes it so more like the current image of the Aliens we now have. I think a combination of the new hands, new arms, new legs, and the new colours all help to give it a whole new image. Also, the Classic pose just doesn't suit it. Only more dynamic poses seem to be fitting for him. By the way, I would just like to point out.... I have no idea which of his folded in blade arms is left or right. But I do know which of the blade out arms is which. The "front" of the blade overlaps the top of the wrists, so other than the folded blade arms, I have no other left and right confusion; which is another improvement over the Classic. No two left hands (right hands?) or anything else like what was reported with the Classic, or maybe I'm just lucky this time? Also, I'm sure the other arms are meant to be the blades folded around the arms, as they are not just plain versions of the arms, something is on them, partially covering them. So to go over the new stuff again: New head, new neck, new hands, new arms, new feet, new back collar thing, new base (with awesome and gruesome looking closed egg, and acid hole) new name tag and a new paint job. However, this isn't just the simple new paint job it seems. The most obvious difference is the fact that, rather than being black and silver/grey/brown, he's black and blue. What isn't simple is the translucency. While the Classic was also translucent, the effect seems more... pronounced in the Warrior version... And even the Glorious Egg has a little, look: I love this figure so much, that it is hard to find any fault with it.... ...However... There are a couple issues, including something they haven't really fixed from the last version... .... That tongue is still not much to write home about. It has to be said, the jaw has been improved a bit, so it is no longer prone to hanging open like with the Classic...  "Stop, or I'll shot with my invisible gun!" However with the mouth fully open, you can always see the tongue waiting there... A slight step back there I feel. "Oh cra-" Especially since that, compared to how awesome the rest of the figure looks, the tongue looks kinda meh. Also it is harder to reach the lever to pull the tongue out now... Eh, I really wish they would have improved how it looks a little more... Oh well.... The other problem is particular to me, probably, and actually has no effect on the figure at all. It is just... worrying. It is not even visible until I remove the hand from the effected wrist, as so... "Eh!?!?" Your eyes do not lie, that end is slanted because it is ever so slightly broken! I do not know where the end is, I assume it is still in the hand! "WTF!?!?!?!??!?" But as I said, no effect at all. Especially since each hand comes with its own revoltech joint. It does worry me though, and makes me try to be extra careful with him. And oh, one other "bad" thing.... he makes me want to Army build with him. I mean, I need... ... How many colonists were there again? Well that many Alien Warriors, and also loads of the eggs... The Queen Commands it.... yesss.... I hear it... ...The Call Of The Matriarch... But I can't afford to army build him, especially since I need to import him from Japan... If anyone does manage to army build him a bit, please show me an image of it... as it will be so awesome...  And now that last important picture chaps... THE HAT TEST! Pass with the use of Blutac! And a thank you very much, you've been a great audience! Also, all images hosted on my Flickr account, here!
