Saint Cloth Myth, Lyra Orpheus

Here’s Lyra Orpheus, in the nifty book-box packaging that we’ve come to expect in the Myth Cloth lineup. In addition to his lethal lyre, this articulated Orpheus action figure comes with his gleaming armor, eight spare hands (four pair), and an interchangeable section of hair to allow him to be displayed with or without his ornate headgear.

Revoltech Series

Revoltech (リボルテック) is an action figure line from the Japanese company Kaiyodo.[1] “Revoltech” is a portmanteau for “Revolver Technology,” in reference to the unique “Revolver Joint” articulation which all of the figures utilize. This gives the figures a wide range of motion and stability, allowing for many dynamic and varied poses.

The subject matter for the Revoltech line can be broadly split into four categories—Real Robot, Super Robot, Humanoid and Creature. Thus far, robots and characters from anime, video games, manga, film and television have been covered.
