Okay...that had to be the best character theme I've ever heard from any anime.

The lyrics were so hilariously cheesy but what can you expect from the groovy 60's? Smile

The toy itself looks great and I bet you can have all sorts of fun with it. Still would love to see Fujiko though. Embarassed

I wonder if there is an MP3 of that song: Nice Man Lupin?

Agreed! Looks like I'm gonna have to pick one of these up and hope for a Fujiko down the road...

Oh man, I can't wait to get mine! When I saw the preorder, it took me like .2 seconds to order him and Jigen.

If only we could get more revoltech or figma of old anime characters...

My kingdom for a Captain Harlock Revoltech!... I don't care if he can only do two poses (sitting in his throne being a badass or standing up and being awesome), but he needs at least 4 bottles of wine.

Nice touch with the BGM from the '71 series. As for the toy itself, eh. I'm not really big on human Revoltechs. I understand the main point behind the line is poseability, but I just can't get past how awkward human characters look with all those ball joints and segmented body parts.

Happy Birthday, David!

Fun fact: Big Bad Toy Store was the first store in the world to list the Lupin III Revoltechs. Nobody knew these were coming, there were no rumors to suggest they were happening, no teaser images, no magazine spreads, nothing at all. But there they were, sitting on BBTS as pre-orders with no other details. They assured people they were real, but wouldn't name their sources. It wasn't until a month or so later that Kaiyodo finally revealed them to the world. Unfortunately BBTS confused Jigan for Zenigata (which would have been awesome), but they got the scoop on everyone.

Nice~! I've never been a fan of the Revoltech or other action figures when it comes to human figures, the joints stand out too much, but somehow it just fits Lupin. I mean, you can't have Lupin in a static pose, he's gotta be free to express himself Laughing Needless to say I'm going to have to make some wild heist scene stretching across the furniture in my room. Now if only they'll release one of Zenigata!

Got to have it, I need that whole line released, and the sooner the better.

I can't get past the hip joints making it look like he's drunk and wearing his underwear outside his pants. :)
