Description:
From Aoshima comes this nicely detailed action figure of the T-800 Endoskeleton, based on its appearance in the 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' movie.

Also, figures such as this are mass produced and as a result some inconsistencies in finish and painting may occur; these are not considered manufacturer's defects. If you absolutely must have perfection, prepare to do some touch-up work on your own.

Designer Original concept- Hideaki Anno; mecha designer- Ikuto Yamashita; character designer: Yoshiyuki Sadamoto
Orig. Price ¥8,800

The Entry Plug is the control center for the pilot of an Evangelion. They are inserted diagonally under an armored section on the back, directly between the shoulders and lock deep into the upper torso. Each one is a hardened cylinder over 60’ (20m) long and about 10’ (2.3m) in diameter, and only allows for one occupant at a time. When piloting an EVA, the Children are completely immersed in, and breath, the LCL manufactured at NERV Headquarters in Tokyo-3. This liquid serves two functions: to protect the Children against high-G forces when maneuvering, and provide a clearer mental & spiritual Synchronization between EVA and pilot. Within the confined space of the Entry Plug is a sled-like dark gray pilot’s seat with two joysticks that allow the Children to manipulate the EVA’s arms and hands more deftly than they could with their standard A10 nerve receptor headsets. Around the pilot’s seat is a full 360° projection of the outside environment transmitted from both cameras and the EVA’s own eyes. On the wrap-around screen, any number of heads-up display (HUD) operational & tactical information and visual communication channels can be shown. (Under natural lighting, LCL is light orange-toned, but when the projection is on, it becomes clear.)

Aoshima June 2009 T-800 Endoskeleton Die-Cast 12-inch Figures - at Sideshow

One of the most iconic characters ever envisioned, the Terminator was brought to life on the big screen through the artistry and imagination of James Cameron and Stan Winston. Concealed inside each seemingly organic Terminator is a metal endoskeleton, a weapon with cunning and inhuman strength.

T2 gave audiences an unforgettable view of John Connor's stand against the SKYNET army. Marching through the rubble of deserted streets, in a barely habitable blasted cityscape, an Endoskeleton crushes a human skull beneath one foot. The Endoskeleton is capable of flawless termination, a chromed visage of death.
Sideshow is pleased to bring you the Aoshima T-800 Endoskeleton 12-inch Figure Black Version from Japan, previously unavailable in the US. This fully articulated, detailed figure is crafted of die-cast metal and comes complete with two guns, a switch-out hand with trigger finger and display base. The T-800 Endoskeleton 12-inch Figure Black Version is an outstanding addition to any display, the perfect way to commemorate the Terminator film series.

Aoshima 2007 Type 66 Maser Cannon 1/48 Diecast

Name Type 66 Maser Cannon
Toy Line Shin Seiki Gokin
Number SGM-22
Manufacturer Aoshima
Released 2007
Materials ABS, Diecast
Scale 1/48
Category Tokusatsu, Vehicle
Series War of the Gargantuas
Designer
Orig. Price ¥14,800

Well, those of you feeling me on this are in luck! Straight from HobbyLink Japan, we have the latest from toy-maker, Aoshima: the Type 66 Maser Cannon from 1966's War of the Gargantuas. Oh yeah, bring it!!

154_5425.JPG



Finally, a high-end collectible of one of the most powerful land-based weapons featured in many Toho films. I know, this particular maser weapon is technically the one from War of the Gargantuas, but c'mon! How many times have you seen Godzilla and pals getting tormented by these lil suckers whenever they wandered too close to the National Diet Building or Tokyo Tower???
This toy is apparently part of the Shin Seiki Gokin line, but honestly, I'm not sure how anything qualifies for the title. We have diecast super robots, plastic transforming robot toys, high-end completed models of sci-fi spaceships...and stuff like this. I guess that since Aoshima puts out a lot of toys and models--of mostly real-world things--they just shove every high-end sci-fi product under the 'Shin Seiki Gokin' heading.

Aoshima Oct 2007 Cream Roll Fairy

Cream Roll Fairy
 
Some of you may remember my write up on the modeler of this figure in this post. You may also remembering me asking whether you would like this figure to be made into a PVC. Well those who voted 'yes' can now get their hands on her this October. Some photos and a few words from the modeller himself after the jump.

From Modeller T:
I met an illustrator called Max Yasuhiro in Japan's biggest social networking service 'Mixi.'
He is very good at drawing funny and sexy cute girls. I adore his works and he enjoys my work too. We also enjoy exchanging silly and naughty comments.

One day we thought why not create our original character and make it as a figure kit. After number of drafts, Cream Roll Fairy was born.
To tell the truth, we both do not exactly know what she is. One thing we are very sure is that we both love naked cute girls, but we are both decent family men with daughters, so Cream Roll Fairy should not be too naughty.
Max likes sweets, especially chocolate rolls. So he dipped the Cream Roll Fairy into a chocolate roll. She was originally Chocolate Roll Fairy, but when I was painting the kit, I thought the creamy brown stuff might be look like the unpleasant stuff that you see in the toilet every day.
I painted it with sweet creamy color then she became the Cream Roll Fairy.

She was introduced as a resin kit in January 2007, then Aoshima offered us PVC painted figure production idea. She will be available from late October.
Modeller T spent many years in England which is why he has a good command of English. He also sent the following images along - you can see the original art work and progress photos taken while he sculpted her.

Folks can pre-order at one of your fave online dealers. Before you order, beknowist that you can also get her with strawberry cream and that the cream covering her eyes are cast-offable.

    Aoshima July 2007 Funny Knights Masterpiece of Yamashita Shunya: Rudy - painted PVC 1/7 scale

    If you're a figure lover… and a sexy girl lover, Yamashita Shunya is a name you very likely know, and if you don't, then you should. Carrying on from the success of last year's Sela figure, Shunya's newest figure, fully named Funny Knights Masterpiece of Yamashita Shunya: Rudy, has been scheduled for the market. Rudy is a vision, standing 250mm tall in all her 1/7 scale glory. The best news out of this official announcement? Her top is sectional… as in a section comes off. NICE! Sorry, let me tone back the enthusiasm a bit. Aoshima has done a good job putting together a nice quality PVC for this excellent sculpt. I applaud them! It'll be out this July for 6,090 yen.
    Despite HobbyStock's insistence otherwise, there is only one picture on their site. If you're in for uncensored NSFW stuff, hit this AmiAmi link. I'll be posting all the SFW ones here for the cubicle-bound. Oh, and there was one other for today, but it's pretty fucking eroero, so I will just post a link and let you look it over for yourself. There's another color, but it's HobbyStock exclusive.
