Muahahahahahaha… After months of waiting, the awesome Hobby Japan limited edition Revoltech Black Getter Dragon finally reach my doorsteps yesterday! I made an introduction post months ago regarding this figure. After confirming the price with my Japan friends, I managed to get some extra other than my personal set. If you are looking for this figure, let me know and we will discuss about the price.

My Opinion on this figure

When I first see this figure in Hobby Japan, I’m attracted by the Black colour scheme for Getter Dragon, which I think it gives a much fiercer and stronger impression than the red one. Secondly, the Getter Laser Cannon enhanced the overall look. If not because of the Cannon I might be reluctant to get this version, since I’m not interested to collect alternative colour without any specialty.

After playing with Black Getter Dragon, the articulation is more or less like the red one. The surprise is on the paint job, where the glossy black, metallic purple, metallic grey and the yellow turn out really nice. The cannon itself have some sort of dry brush metallic silver texture, which is unusual for Revoltech series. The slight disappointment is that no other weapon included, I was expecting the Getter Beam effect with the head. Oh well, overall it impressed me a lot and I wish Kaiyodo can keep up the good work for its new figures.

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!GGGGGG!!!

    Pretty obvious how Im red with burning jealousy. Clothed Head, is f-cking badass, and the Cannon/X axe blade, Damn awesome, except the paint doesnt look well done. I didnt expect purple, but it does the job.

    @Gunstray: Hmm the paint job is as usual, just that they uses metalic colour which is really nice.

    very cool, especially the alternative head, reminds me of the Black Getter in the previous Revoltech. Simple color, but it definitely makes him look mean!
    Nice grab :D

    This getter is super GAR! Limited?
    Though actually I don’t really like getter G design, this one is exceptional!
    The cannon is one thing that makes him stand out.

    @rockleelotus: Thanks! It sure bring me some surprises.

    @h4mster: I’m trying to get my Black Getter and have a crossover shot with Black Getter Dragon. It will be awesome!

    @Marzz: I’m making PC wallpaper with one of the Arbalest photo. Will post it tomorrow. And you should really watch FMP, it is really great.

    @heathorn: Yea limited. Revoltech love to do such thing =___=. I get one of this thanks to the cannon! I should borrow the axes from the original red version.

    hmmm I still prefer black getter ryoma custom I don’t really like getter dragon design -_- although I like black
    can I request review of revoltech no.35 *_*

  • http://www.bmecha.com B-Mecha

    @moemoekyun: I’ll consider that. I was thinking it will be awesome if both black version can stand side by side or fighting each other :D

    Damn it!!! Spells bad ass all over man!!!

    That cannon is sweet! This version is so much better than the regular one. Surprisingly the colors are very good, looks nice and flat to me from the photos :D

    I am with moemoekyun, do that review man XD

  • http://www.bmecha.com B-Mecha

    @chubbybots: Only the metalic silver is semi gloss or flat, the rest are actually glossy. But somehow the glossy turn out to be pretty nice.

    Wow! I actually quit playing Revoltech around a year, but I think if my wallet is swell, I will get to as well. The weapon darn cool!

    @Janus Lu: Some Revoltech is quite worth the money. Poseable, unique sculpting, and tough material XD. It is fun to play with. But for display purposes, chogokin still rocks.
