Kaiyodo Revoltech Yamaguchi: Vic Viper from Anubis Zone of Enders

Here’s another one of Kaiyodo’s masterpieces which is Revoltech Yamaguchi No. 132 Vic Viper from “Anubis Zone of Enders” (Figure courtesy of Revoltech Philippines).

Since I know nothing much about Vic Viper,  I checked the video game play in You Tube to give me an idea for my toy photography.

Vic Viper is an LEV type or manned mechanical suit that can be transformed to robotic mecha from its high speed fighter mode.

IMG_2984 (Large)When I opened the box, aside from the main model, Vic Viper comes with arm effects, optional hand parts, waist part for its high speed mode, display stand and Revoltech container.  Vic Viper is approximately  135mm tall with lots of articulation points.

This is my first attempt of photographing a mecha, so it’s quite a challenge. I just played with the lighting and used some things I have at home for back drop.

Vic Viper is a space age war machine and using computer/CPU case as background will help me achieve a futuristic feel to it.

If you are a big fan of Zone of Enders like my brother does, you have to get a hold of this. The figure is pretty light and easy to handle.  With its great number of articulation, you can do any of your favorite poses for Vic Viper.

I didn’t use its display stand for photography purpose. I used transparent thread or for some they call it Nylon thread/string to hung Vic Viper up that makes it look like flying and used the magic of Adobe CS5 a bit.

That’s all for this week guys.  See you on my next post, thanks for checking out!

    I remember Zone of Enders to be one anime I always planned to watch.
    The mech looks cool, the design is rather unique with all the pointy shapes.
    still not sure about the thing between it’s legs *lol*

    anyway the pictures with the more excessive colorplay came out great
    btw are you sponsored in any way, and get such items for free? excuse my curiosity 😀

      I think its where extra powers come from? Just kidding. Hehe. I think it’s because that it can be transformed to jet fighter mode, and that thing is part of it. @_@

      About your question, yes, Kotobukiya and Revoltech Philippines are sending me figures for free (cupoche, yamaguchi/pixar line). ^_^

        That is SO sweet eh! I kinda got that vibe from your recent posts but congrats anyways! Anyhoos how was your maiden Mecha experience? Ahaha I normally shy away from non-model Mechas as I feel that with a little effort those model kits triumph over those toys aesthetically..=3

      Haha it’s actually in my plan to put detail lining, I’m gonna go ask my brother for help. I’m sure if this is yours, you can do a lot with Vic Viper plus you can make him look cooler with detail lining or re-painting too. ^_^
