Revoltech Asuka isnt that good imo. The plastic is too rubbery, and the joints are too loose. Standing her up is difficult to impossible. (It does come with a stand though). Sculpt is a tad chunky compared to the anime/manga. Here's another shot:
Do you have the 10th Anniv Special Box Bandai? If not, I'd recommend that one instead.

I just got the GITS Goodsmile Gokinh Tachikoma from HLJ. The figure is really great, very detailed and the tiny Motoko is cool.
But unfortunately one of Tachi's arms is broken as you can see in the last 2 pictures attached.
It was this way when I opened the sealed box. It seems to be a moving part which retracts in the arm and very hard to glue or fix at home.
I already contacted HLJ about this. Do you think is there a chance for HLJ to send a replacement arm? Don't need the entire Tachi since it comes disassembled in the original box so an arm will suffice.
Just found this thread (can't belive I've skipped over this section so many times). I've collected a few Anime figures and would collect more if the ones I likes weren't so expensive. These are a couple I'd love to get
Yeah I collected DBZ figures by Irwin when they first came out and have the first 7 or 8 series collections, cant remember I stoped when they sarted puting Goku and Gohan with machine guns, thought that was stupid so I stoped. Collected some of the other series but got away from it but I would say that I have about 60 or so MOC DBZ toys and a few Gundam Wing also. I just havent found any anime lately that i like so I dont watch it like I used to. I heard they are filming a live action DBZ movie in Asia right now that would be sweet.
You maybe recall I bought the Gokin Tachikoma from HLJ and kept it boxed because of lack of display space. Now that I received the new cabinets I decided to assemble it and get it ready for display.
It already had the 4 legs assembled in the box, you just need to add the back cockpit, the lights and the 2 arms; it was pretty difficult to add the arms but finaly with some grease they were in - maybe hot water would have helped too.
When it was assembled I was stunned. It is the BEST Tachikoma figure in my opinion! Very detailed, quite solid but also poseable, comes with a beautiful Motoko figure, really nice features like opening cockpit where the cool Motoko fits inside, exchangable legs (you can add wheels) and weapons, and maybe most of all: it can stand by its own, no need for a separate support/stand.
I took some comparison pics with the Perfect Piece Tachikoma, but there's no comparison between these 2. The Gokin Tachi blows the Perfect Piece one out of the water.
