WING SABER TOYZ UPCOMING RELEASE:- THE ROBOT SPIRITS -Robot Damashii- (SIDE KMF) Code Geass: コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ / Lelouch of the Rebellion Lancelot Albion Knightmare Frame!




 Welcome once again to my followers from around the world to another random blog post by your truly Adam! I have mentioned countless times on my other posts that the fun part about finding cheap and high grade Japanese hobby toys from a reliable online source can be pleasing to one's soul and a serious form of ' retail therapy' when things are not going your way. Today's purchase is another of those sorts where a good mecha design is just the perfect way to start the month, even the more better when the payment for the neat toy won't be registered for yet another month or so!

CODE GEASS?! 

Now, admittedly, I am not such a fan of those really 'girly'/ bishonen  type of main-stay character designs from some of the churned and tested Anime productions so churlish made and produced in abundance year after year -- no offense to all the female fans of this genere out there! LOL!-- but sometimes the main character does not always take center stage to said dramatic effect. Some of these lame excuse for a real solid show (cant you see that I am all for the more violent, philosophical and more endearing old school Mecha Anime?!)   but thankfully, there is plenty of mecha- on  mecha carnage and fast paced action sequences in this Code-Geass  anime that is the actual saving grace when it comes to barely summing up the patience to sit through a non-discript and unimpressive anime like the above title. The main hero's mecha which glows in it's all powerful and god-like (aren't they all?!) mecha aka Knightmare Frame also known as the final form / 9th Generation : LANCELOT ALBION- has once again inspired Bandai Japan to design a real solidly made Robot Tamashii/ Spirits incarnation.  This is the first version made, with the second and more bigger and 're-imagined K.A. aka Katoke Hajime Ver which was released recently this year. 




LANCELOT ALBION! 

The speedy and powerful, graceful Lancelot Albion is more than a match for his tough enemies, as seen here in this YouTube link.

Lancelot

"The Lancelot (ランスロット Ransurotto?), named after Sir Lancelot of the Knights of the Round Table, is an experimental prototype seventh-generation custom Knightmare Frame developed by Lloyd Asplund and the Military Engineering Corps. It is the personal Knightmare Frame of Knight of Seven Suzaku Kururugi. It is the first seventh generation Knightmare Frame ever fielded. The Lancelot outperforms most other models thanks to the heavy amount of sakuradite scattered throughout its frame as well as in its Yggdrasil Drive, the Core Luminous. The same enhancements also make it difficult to pilot; while Suzaku can control it with ease, Lloyd notes that most of the test pilots could barely make it move. As it is still in development, the Lancelot lacks an ejection system.


The Lancelot serves as a test bed for experimental technologies, and as such has a wide array of armaments. It has two retractable Factspheres affixed on its chest (earlier models have a single, head-mounted unit), two forearm-mounted energy shields called the Blaze Luminous, and four Slash Harkens (two on its wrists and two on its hips). These Slash Harkens have experimental thrusters called Harken Boosters which can improve their speed and allow them to change direction midflight. It also sports a pair of Maser Vibration Swords. It carries a VARIS particle rifle (Variable AmmunitionRepulsion Impact Spitfire) which can adapt its projectile repulsion output to any situation. The Lancelot is also the first Knightmare equipped with a backpack-like Float System; however, the power usage of the Float System is astronomical. When equipped with the Float System, it is redesignated as Lancelot Air Cavalry."




FINAL SAY:-

Easily one of the best Robot Tamashii Figures out there, the Lancelot Albion figure come with the usual signature Weapons, interchangeable hands and other interesting extras like the extended slash harkens/ blades to add to the overall figure's playability. I may not be familliar with the whole Anime storyline nor the rest of tis plot/ characters and mecha, but the graceful and sleek design on the Lancelot Albion is  a decent buy if you are a great admirer of all tings MECHA! A!
