Revoltech Fraulein Pocco Part 4 [Final]

Moe March over

Not really the last part of review on Revoltech Fraulein Pocco really, but a group photo session of mainly Revoltech Fraulein girls featured in this and last month, Figma Miyuki and Revoltech SFO Chunli, to somewhat sum up Moe March on Ex. ^^

My collection of Figma is more than just Miyuki actually, you can find "traces" of that in some previous postings. ^^ But reviews on them will surface in the future.

Pocco however, is indeed the last Revoltech Fraulein in my collection to be introduced. Their joints aren't that well designed and natural-looking as Figma, but I have a few characters in the series whom I like very much. I'm still looking for Hasegawa Haruka, who turns out to be just as hard to find as Pocco. ^^; The upcoming Mari Illustrious Makinami is on my list as well. Apart from these two, you may consider me out of that line. ^^;

I look at the Nendoroid series almost the same as Figma really. Sometime there's no escape from certain releases, but most of the time, I would just admire them on my computer screen. ^^ Still waiting for my order of Haruhi to arrive, before signing off from this series (for the moment) as well. ^^

Moe March is over, Action Figure April is coming up next on Ex. ^^

MG Crossbone Full Cloth Part 4

I'll follow you

Back to Gunpla a bit with more work on MG Crossbone Full Cloth. Still working on the weapons actually, which will be done after this review.

While not supposedly in yellow, I painted the nozzle's interior of the buster gun in that color to make it look close to all those beam barrels on the Peacock Smasher.

The targeting sensor of the buster gun, with no foil sticker included is painted in green using an oil-based paint marker.
No more transparent quality, but doesn't really matter to me since it's going to be deep inside its casing on the weapon.

A bit of optional painting applied - Gundam Marker Gray for the tip of the whips, and black for the interior of the buster gun's hammer (?).

All parts are panel-lined after the paint has dried.

Other parts of the Peacock Smasher and Muramasa Blaster to be panel-lined

The skulls on the body of the sword and parts for the Peacock Smasher are panel-lined.

All parts for the weapons completed. ^^

Will be moving on to the leg in the next review.

Revoltech Fraulein Pocco Part 3


Only one sword and 6 hand units included for one to be creative with Pocco's action poses, ^^ but thank goodness that there's no problem with her shoulder joint (from Yoko), posing Pocco is very easy and fun. ^^

Given the details of her sculpture and painting (the scarf on her waist for example), I would say every pose of her is beautiful. ^^ Even though an extra face expression part would be nice, because the only one she has makes her look somewhat awkward in certain poses. ^^;

I used to think that if I photoshop one or two question marks, or the word "Huh?" over her head in some of the photos, her expression would be explained immediately XD

Revoltech Fraulein Pocco Part 2

High level class details

This is exactly why I like Pocco in the first place. ^^

Clear parts used for her goggles.

The wings are made of soft material so they don't break easily.

The wings are of course movable.

Some damage effect on the sword.

So much nicely painted details all over the figure, articulation isn't a real concern eh? ^^ Personally, I don't mind her standing just like that, but that won't do much justice to the title of Revoltech. ^^; More images of Pocco in action in the next review.
