Now that is some awesome looking stuff right there, and it's a good break from the long line of mecha. Trigun was always a favorite of mine, so I might have to give these figures an extra look

While I am a lover of Revoltech's mecha lines, these Trigun figures are a definate MUST for me. That coat for Vash looks too cool and you can never have too much Wolfwood...

Wow, those figures are nice! I knew there were Vash figures out there (I own an old McFarlane 3D animation figure of him), but didn't know that Wolfwood figures existed.

...Now if only I had money to spend on action figures like I used to, I would get that Wolfwood. I especially like the accessories (even the cigarettes), but would be afraid of losing them.

I kind of find all the numerous folds in Vash's coat a bit off-putting. There are so many and quite awkwardly angular. Maybe it's my OCD but it makes me want to pull his coat down and straighten it just a bit. Part of me thinks they would have done better to have part of his coat a little more fluid looking, but still have it "roughed-up" and unkempt...

I'm not a fan of the wrinkles on Wolfwood. They make him look blocky. But it works for Vash.

Just got in my Vash and Wolfwood, and yes, I have exactly the same issue with one of the Wolfwood gun hands - there is no possible way that the wrist joint thingy will fit, and of course it's for the hand that doesn't normally hold the massive cross armory. Anyone else having trouble getting the stand to fit in his back? Tried the Vash one too, and it seems like the hole is too small there as well... which makes it hard to counterbalance him when he's fully armed.

Otherwise, epic figures. I've only started collecting in the last year, and these are my first Revoltech, so of course it took me a solid 24 hours to figure out the stand, and all of 10 minutes to break my first plastic accessroy (tip, don't try to pop the little bullet attachment out of the case - the molded plastic box is stronger than the projectile tip). There's a reason girls aren't meant to collect action figures... sigh.

Still, freakin' cool Vash and Wolfwood, and I would kill for a Meryl to add to the collection. She could come with the trademark black cat, a box of doughnuts for Vash, a typewriter, and a megaphone as accessories. (Millie can go die in the desert, though. Supersized freak of nature. Nice people scare me.)
