On Friday I got a big surprise in the post. My Rin Tohsaka Fraulein that I won from Akihabaka had arrived. WAAAAY earlier than anticipated XD. It was only posted 4 days previously. Canada to England in 4 days, not using any fancy expensive kinda postal service. Just normal post. How the hell did it get here so fast? o.O I think its Canada, last time I got something from Canada it got here really quickly too XD. Love Canada <3
I know alot of people don’t like Fraulein Revoltech’s much, due to many things, one being their faces. They think they’re too wide I think, I can see why they think that, but I really don’t mind it. I think I prefer Fraulein Haruhi’s face to Figma Haruhi’s. I like Frauleins cos they feel chunkier, sturdier, even if with the older ones, they weren’t XD. But so far with Rin, I’ve had none of these issues No weak joints, no falling back, nothing. third time lucky I must assume as this is my third Fraulein Revoltech Pocco being first, Movie Yoko being second. Both of which had issues. Pocco’s right thigh & elbow joints were loose and Yoko’s right thigh joint was loose.
The usual Fraulein box. Its nice when a box is super pretty, but it really doesn’t matter to me because I just don’t have to space to keep boxes anymore XD Just keeping ones for transporting the more fragile figures like Fumie.
It’s a very early Fraulein, so not many accessories. 3 spare pairs of hands, and a pretty little knife I’ve not seen Fate Stay Night ever(just watched ep 1), so I know very little about the character, getting Rin has kinda prompted me to finally watch it all the way through XD So I’ll know what those things she’s got in the pair of hands on the left hehe.
I’m a big fan of the shoulder joints of Frauleins I gotta say. They look more realistic imo. And their hands, arn’t as scarily dainty as Figma’s. I always feel like I’m gonna accidentally break Figma hands when changing them XD. I’m sure I’ve said this before hehe.
There may be a limitation of forward movement because of the skirt being made of a fairly stiff rubber plastic, but it is removable XD So if I did wanna have her sitting like I can have Yoko sitting, I can always take it off XD. I love that Frauleins can stand up on their own, without much worry of a breeze tipping them over XD
Love the sculpt of the clothes. Always thought that when eying her up at various conventions before now XD And I do like when the shine is painted onto the hair, I know it doesn’t always look good, but with one of the Mikuru figures and the Win-chan figures it looks so pretty D
As I said, ain’t seen Fate Stay Night yet, so I don’t know what she’s holding here XD.
Ahhhhhh pretty knife :3
Should have put her on something pretty for this photo really… rather than the jiffy bag she came in XD
Long hair on posable figures is always a problem, restricts head movement, and I like being able to move the head back a fair way, like my Yoko can, more so than any Figma I’ve got I think… Haven’t got a Figma that can sit like a Fraulein can either. Drossel came closest I think…
Anyways, I like Frauleins. I like them because they remind me of old school action figures by their elbow and knee joints. But better, cos action figures I had when I was younger were pretty lame compared to Figmas and Frauleins and other Revoltechs XD Rin is sitting by my bed atm, where all new figures go until I get a new-new one XD. Last figure before winning Rin was Figma Kagome I think… Haven’t bought a scaled PVC one in yonks T-T. And I still want Yui T-T Reminds though, I never did posts bout Nanoha or Kagome. Or…. Aegis… did I…..?
So once again, THANK YOU AKIHABAKA!! Never won a figure before, so was over the moon when I found out I had XD
