revolMiNi - 001: Solid Snake

This is why I love toys. I am so glad the mini’s have returned. I am eager for Iron Man and will keep an eye out for Kinnikuman when I have the extra money for sure.

I want this. I really really do, but I cannot and will not pay over 25 bucks for this. And no shop here will get this in so yeah…

Great set!

Thanks man! And I completely understand anyone’s dislikes or even apprehensiveness on this line and its price point (this is also to address the comments in this post). If you are even someone doubtful of enjoying this line - the $25+ price point won’t help in the least bit. I happened to luck out over here and get one on sale and price matched with a local store as well but this line has won me over. I still can’t say the price is justifiable but depending on how relative the price is to anyone interested I implore everyone to give it a chance if or when a character comes out in this line that you can’t help but have.

The older eva mini’s (unit 00, 01, and 04 - also the two weapon sets) were priced at $15 each or were special magazine pack ins. I don’t see this line adjusting their price point anytime soon either. Here in Den-Den Town, Osaka this line was sold out everywhere. I happened to check the 3rd floor of a back alley toy shop and found two Solid Snakes and four Kinnikumans. As of right now minus Kinnikuman and the fraulein girls I own every other revoltech mini and I can tell you I can see and feel where those extra ten dollars went. I feel confident enough to recommend this line to anybody if they ever have the chance to get their hands on them.

I spent all morning cruising osaka trying to find some new revoltech mini’s today and I succeeded by afternoon! I wanted to get kinnikuman as well as snake but I couldn’t spare the cash today as I just picked up the remainder of the pokemon nanoblocks earlier this week (minus two of the play sets - which I will be taking pictures of later today).

I have some fire emblem (SF), Kirby (GB), Zelda (GB), sets coming later and a stack of other games I got recently as well. If I were less busy they would be up right now but I am finding it hard to even find the time to edit the photos I have right now. I still need to get pictures up of the apartment when I can..which I am still holding off on because we are still furnishing it. We’ll see.

Also maybe tomorrow evening (Osaka time) I may put up the first video game related items I will be selling. That is if I am able to play test them and finish cleaning the jewel cases (as best as I can) by tomorrow night. So keep an eye out for that if you like Tekken. I only have one set and those will be first come first serve.

Again I apologize for any outstandingly late responses - but life unfortunately. I will respond when I can!

Pocket Monsters Stadium (w/ 64GB Pack)

(N64/JP/August 1, 1998

(Original Post Date: August 14, 2013)

*EDIT* July 26, 2014

Got this copy last week but due to my lack of time I just now got around to uploading this. Glad I got the chance to retake the photos on this post with a real camera. The cell phone pics from last year didn’t do it justice.

Second Copy - For the price I was able to pick this one up at I am more than happy to have this nicer less beat up copy. When I get a gameboy over here I plan on trying out the 64GB Pack with the second copy of Pokemon Yellow I just got!
