Revoltech's Friday the 13th

My loving and amazing girlfriend gave me this as a surprise gift. While we were at the last ToyCon, I saw a seller having this. I looked at it and really want it but I wanted to look around to see what was also for sale. Once we had, I went back to get this Revoltech's Friday the 13th figure but the seller told me it was already sold.

Sad I was…

But what I didn't knew was that it was my girlfriend who bought it for me. She gave it to me a couple weeks later since she was afraid I was going to get it online… in time before my birthday.

Revoltech's Friday the 13th super poseable action figure of Jason Voorhees is perfect.


Even the packaging is perfect.



The actual figure is 5 inches tall. It has over 20 points of articulations. It is highly detailed with great paint and loads of awesome accessories.


Kaiyodo is a Japanese company dedicated to figurines and garage kits. Their line, Revoltech is a portmanteau for "Revolver Technology," in reference to the unique "Revolver Joint" articulation which all of the figures in this particular series utilize. This gives the figures a wide range of motion and stability, allowing for many dynamic and varied poses.

The Revolver Joint is composed of three pieces, two half spheres whose flat sections provide the friction surface for the articulation, and a cross section pin that locks the whole assembly into place. Both half-spheres have round cylindrical pegs used to connect the different body parts of any given figure.

    1. This one is more expensive but totally worth it. When you hold it its not cheap, the joints are well made, the sculpt and paint are great.
