Kaiyodo’s Revoltech line of toys features highly articulated joints. Today, let’s have a look at their Zentraedi Battle Pod, aka “Regult”, the VF-1S, and the VF-1J.
These toys are well painted, and are made of a very soft plastic. I think they’re made of PVC’s, and boy, do they smell!!
Here’s a close-up of the Regult:
Here’s a close-up of the VF-1S (Roy Fokker’s paint scheme). Note that the toy has the Super and Strike parts!
Because these toys are highly articulated, you can strike some very dynamic poses, which you can’t do with the Yamato toys!
Here’s a close-up of the VF-1J, which has the paint scheme of Rick Hunter’s VF-1J from the Robotech/Macross TV series. It also has super parts, but no strike cannon:
These toys are about half the height of the Yamato 1/60 valkyries, so if that’s too small for you, I don’t recommend getting them. Also, if you want to minimize the smell of the PVC plastic, you’ll need to get an enclosed display case.
In my opinion, the Yamato 1/60 toys are much better; they’re bigger, are made of stiffer plastic, and they don’t smell!
