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 ❤
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 😄 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 😄 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 😄 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 😄
Love the sculpt of the clothes. Always thought that when eying her up at various conventions before now 😄 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 :DD
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 😄
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 😄 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 😄
