Uh Oh, More Kaiyodo!!

Just a short post to show a few more examples of kool Kaiyodo action figures! If you haven't had a chance, definitely pick up the Evangelion Series. A ground breaking anime series to be sure. A little long on existentialism and a bit short on mecha action, it was nonetheless very interesting if you could follow the storyline. It was pretty good the first time around when I was stoned, but not nearly as good sober. Sega first came out with a really lame set of Evangelion action figures without hardly any articulation or accessories. When Kaiyodo came out with their version, I was blown away! I had never seen any action figure with as much articulation. You have the ability to pose these figures in almost any way you want. But the accessories are what will really get you going. Guns, knives, rifles, grenades and individual bullets and shotgun shells! You read that correctly: tiny, individual bullets and shells. Unbelievable.

The other shots are of Five Star Stories. Not as articulate, but very cool and detailed figures as you can see. I've always been a fan of the mecha design. You can buy all kinds of Five Star Stories mecha as very expensive resin kits, but i'm not nearly talented or patient enough to 1. build them, or 2. paint them. These are the only three color Five Star Storie action figures made in the series. LED Mirage, Knight of Gold and Ruby Princess.
