Organic Hobby, Inc releases two new figures as a part of Kaiyodo’s “Revoltech Series, “Revoltech Lazengann (Gurren Lagann),” “Revoltech Toro – New F

After the successful releases of the first generation of Revoltech’s figures, Organic Hobby, Inc in conjunction with Kaiyodo proudly introduces its two new product for the U.S. market, “Revoltech Lazengann” and “Revoltech Toro (New Faces Limited Edition).”
● The concept of “REVOLTECH” is an innovative joint system that allows the figure(s) to demonstrate any kind of dynamic and realistic pose unlike any other PVC action figure.
● Not only can advanced “figure modelers” demonstrate “cool” and almost real poses for each “REVOLTECH” figure but also the consumers as well.
● Organic Hobby, Inc in conjunction with Kaiyodo will release every month, two to three new character figures as part of the “REVOLTECH Series.”

The following two figures set to be released in June with a SRP of $24.00 are:

- Lazengann is based on a Japanese sh┼Źnen anime television series animated by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami known as "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (or Break-Through Heaven Gurren Lagann" or more loosely "Heaven Shattering Gurren Lagann). Meaning "Spiral Face", the Lazengann is Lord Genome's personal Gunman. It is very similar to the Gurren-Lagann and has the same abilities that the Lagann can use (by extension, it also proves immune to being controlled by the Lagann Impact attack). However, it is much stronger and can use more powerful drill techniques, as well as defend against the Gurren-Lagann's techniques with ease. The figure is 5-6" tall and has 38 articulation points with 11 joint parts (+ inner body joint gives facial expression to his chest face). "Revoltech Lazengann" comes equipped with interchangeable accessories and parts (1 long distance drill, 2 different chest parts includes for a normal & revealed version, 4 optional hands, 1 display base and a special bonus "Gurren Wings' pylon" for Revoltech Gurren Lagann). By buying this figure, you will be able to built & complete "Revoltech Gurren Lagann" flight mode.





- Toro (New Faces Limited Edition) is a fictional character created by Sony Computer Entertainment. It first appears in July 1999 as the main character in the video game Doko Demo Issyo (also written as Doko Demo Issho, meaning "Together everywhere") on the miniature game console called PocketStation, produced by the same company. The figure is 5-6" tall and has multiple articulation points. "Revoltech Toro (New Faces Edition)" is being re-introduces with a compilation of brand new redesigned faces.
