Grail Loot!!  Mushi-shi Ginko RAH!!Grail Loot!! Mushi-shi Ginko RAH!!

StacycmcStacycmcVor 10 MonatenLoot
Hello MFC!!!

So as some of you likely know, if you've seen any of my last several articles...I've become a bit in love with RAH figures. I will clearly state however it is a LOVE / HATE relationship...without a doubt.

Before we get into the specifics of that however, let me say...that I got one of my grails in today!!! Yay!!! Meet Mushi-shi's Ginko, another Medicom RAH!!

ITEM #7197

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/21/40/17/21401750a16feaf56941ff97cbc33e63.gif

I never thought I would be able to own this figure, as every time I saw him for sale, he was like $800-$1000. YIKES. ONE time I saw him for around $450, but it was bad timing and I had to pass (and glad I did...as I got him for MUCH cheaper via an auction...LUCKY!!). After I won him, I did see him up on Ebay for just under $400 though, which still makes me excited for my purchase, as I won the auction for him for around $78...in total it was right at $100 shipped!!! I was thinking the whole time this is a scam, but screw it...I'm willing to risk it!!!

Well needless to say, I got him in today!!! The box was a wee bit damaged, just a few creased areas where it got a little smushed somewhere, but no biggie for me, as long as he's ok right?

So after taking him out and inspecting, he seems to be in GREAT shape. The only flaw they noted was that one of his cigarettes were missing...and luckily he comes with two, so no big deal!! So, I start posing him and snapping some photos...he is BEAUTIFUL, so true to the anime!!! They did a wonderful job on his clothes and sculpt, he's exactly like the Ginko I recall from the series!!!

He even came with a scroll (which I didn't snapshot), one of the cocoons they use for sending mail, his travel box (with straps, that you can actually strap him into), and a saki bowl!!

Now, for a bit more explanation on my LOVE / HATE relationship with RAH's...as seeing this guy, how could you NOT love these things...they are amazing!! Well, let me tell you how...because there was a long period of time where Medicom made these with crap plastic. And no, I'm not exaggerating...spend not even 5 minutes browsing the net and you will find article after article of frustrated owners, all with the EXACT same issue....broken hips and shoulders. Why you ask...playing too rough or something? No. The plastic literally just disintegrates and crumbles and so any pressure at all and BAM....there goes your figure's leg or arm. It just falls off.

So...here I am with my treasured Ginko, and OF COURSE as I'm wrapping up my initial photoshoot, on cloud 9 from this guy...BAM. His right arm just falls off.

https://metrouk2.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/tumblr_n3pq17em7a1qikmd9o1_500.gif

I want to just fall into the floor and cry...because let me tell you, finding a perfect replacement body for these guys...is a BIOCH!!!! The RAH bodies are slimmer than most, they are way paler than most...and the neck adapter is a bit different than most. And dammit...Ginko's arms show a little so I can't be having him mismatch...so now I'm going to have to go on a quest to find another RAH to disassemble for Ginko's sake (and PRAY it's the right color!!!). Ugh, so upsetting...especially when I just did a body replacement for Light Yagami and while it works, it's not ideal (and guess why...YES (you're GOOD!!)....both arms AND one of his legs fell off). *sigh*

Anyway, here are my treasures sitting on my shelf (Ginko's right arm is just kind of hanging in place in his shirt, half propped up by his hand in his lap). I still love him though, and would have bought him for that same price 100x even if I had known his arm was falling off!!!! Cuz he's AMAZING!!!!!

Bye MFC!!!!! ...and thanks for reading!!! :D

It might not just be you... I remember only a select group of collectors purchased RAHs for a while, but then Medicom started getting their hands on series at the right times and more people dove in, and Medicom changed the plastic but I feel like they couldn't keep up with the demand and keep their production quality high? Many issues with Link and the Titan RAHs from what I read initially when they were released. I do think some of that changed, and I'm exceptionally impressed with my Meliodas, but I know many on MFC that purchased Guts, Link, or a Titan RAH and swore it would be their first and last. I know these figures aren't for everyone, but with the larger price tag Medicom started slapping on these people felt gypped when maneuver gear broke, paint was bad or parts were missing. Of course, who wouldn't? Of course, I'm used to RAHs so I can never say until I have the RAH in question in my own hands and I run into problems... I've seen people who aren't used to action figures turn joints wrong and immediately break them, and RAHs are much worse than that as their joints are particular and you can't turn them the wrong way. A RAH or two I bought even came with a warning stating "DON'T TURN THIS JOINT INWARD" etc.
I know Medicom not having a standard body anymore annoys you, but for something like my Kaneda RAH from Akira, I wish he was made in 2017 instead of way back when. That body doesn't suit him and I have to stuff his clothing LOL! Collectors are rarely satisfied, are we? I doubt it will make you feel better, but you haven't had your heart sink from realizing the clothes are going on a RAH. At least you can replace a body. Clothes that are starting to show some wear? Ouch, it hurts my heart.
*ice clatters in the drink glass* Oof. Such troubles...


Yeah the clothes issue is a scary thought too, but he’ll if that happens I’ll commission some new ones or learn to friggin sew. There is zero chance I can go craft a new jointed body though (but god I wish I could...perhaps if I had a 3D printer I could make replacement parts maybe???). The dream, lol. *sigh*

I actually like they have different sized bodies. I mean I don’t think all the Fate chars they have should be the same size... that’d be weird, so glad they vary them, but they could easily have some base options...that one could buy. Like obitsu has some kid, teen, slim then muscular body options. Hell medicom at one point had a slim and muscular option (RAH 301 aka Naked Kai body then the Massive body). It wouldn’t be hard to make 3-4 base bodies in a pale and tan option, especially if you got figures that size already.

I’m definitely gonna hunt for a new one I think will work though then see if I can use an order form to get the body...and see how much that would cost. As damn problematic as these things are, and as annoyed as I get at Medicim, I still love these damn figures and haven’t given up on them yet!!!! :-)

God I know right, you’d think my purpose was to amputate their limbs!!! Sad part is I was super careful with Levi. I’d already taken the hands off once to remove his jacket and didn’t notice any issues but when I when I went to change his hands both broke off. One came out of the arm but clearly had a crack in it and was hanging by this super thin piece of plastic. I’m honestly not sure why they made them that way, it’s so thin, no way it would hold up. The other peg broke off in the arm so I gotta figure out how to unplug that. I’m not sure if it’s because the figures frame/limbs are smaller, but the pegs for the hands are way thinner than all my other RAHs, they just scream FRAIL!!! Oh well at worst I’m hoping other hands pegs can maybe be used but not sure.
For Manji, I feel like there’s a 90% chance he’ll break but my god I’m praying I luck up on him. I’m just exhausted from stressing over how many repairs I’ve gotta do on these things and the cost for the extra bodies I’ll be buying. I think I need a strong drink just thinking about it!!!!!

View spoilerHide spoilermaggie (Vor 9 Monaten) #36551671LOL you RAH mangler, you!! Poor levi XD maybe next time try heating the joint with a hair dryer before you go prying off pieces? I don't usually have to do that, but I hear the Titan RAHs are more fragile (the gear specifically) so I'm a terrible collector that hasn't even opened mine yet 9_9;; Guess those joints really need a workout! Whenever I pry a head off to switch them I swear I do a little prayer first to the figure gods... the Bakuman heads are like pulling teeth. Mashiro's hair has definitely almost made my fingers bleed as I try to grip it to pull it off >_<;; I much prefer the face swap system, as do my poor fingers.
Yeah, RAHs with boots are a PITA with ankle mobility. Makes me wonder why they don't just put a joint in the toe? Drives me kind of crazy, since I have to deal with that for the Titan RAHs, both Guts RAHs, and my Link RAH. AWKWARD. RAHs are beautiful but they sure like to hinder mobility! They definitely focus more on looks than play. Sometimes concessions have to be made, but in a way I prefer Figma's decisions more than some of the choices Medicom makes for RAH.
And AHAHAHA at least if Manji loses a few limbs it's canon with the manga! I kind of love it!

Ah, the struggle is sooo real. Lol...
I got a RAH Levi for like $65, got him yesterday and took him out of the box. Everything looked perfect, then when trying to change his hands both pegs broke off. I now have to unjam one that’s broke off in his arm hole and see if I can’t find peg replacements to repair those two hands. I will likely end up selling him though, as I’m not as impressed by him as my other RAH figures, so know I won’t invest in the others. He’s cool but seems more frail...oddly enough...his body, hands, joints and all that are smaller and his ankles only twist so he’s harder to stand/pose. So, this does st least tell me that AoT RAH’s cannot be used as body replacements!
On a side note I also just ordered a Manji from Blade of the Immortal (another older RAH, limited to only 800). I’m an idiot huh? Oh well I love them. Listing said it was an adult collector that he has everything and is in perfect condition (but...so was Light and Ginko). I nabbed him for $130 though so seems worth it to me.
For Ginko, yes at that price even broken, it still feels like a steal and I’d do it over in a heartbeat if all his limbs were broken, lol!!!
I forgot you said newer RAH’s had that parts order form!!! I sooo need that!!! I’ll have to do some research and see for sure what other figures I think will work then see about finding that order form!!! Thanks for the reminder!!!
The struggle is really real!!!!

View spoilerHide spoilermaggie (Vor 9 Monaten) #36540187This is absolutely right. For proper RAH care, you must open them and work their joints. I usually do this to mine every 6 months but I was moving around a lot and they were in storage so I should take them out. Work every joint, rotate gently. Medicom also suggests not to pose them in a way that puts stress on their joints, but I don't always follow that advice as it's no fun for me to have these beautifully articulated figures in static poses haha. For the clothes I was speaking to someone I know who is a conservationist for museums, for Ginko you're pretty safe as he's rather no frills.
Sad to say, I kind of had the feeling when you got Ginko this would happen. I always advise against buying the old ones unless one is willing to fix them (like you are) because even when people say "mine is just fine!" I always feel it's a waiting game. For newer RAHs, (I think I've told you before?), they come with a slip inside to order parts, just grab a body from that (maybe find a RAH you think will work and ask on the item page if anyone will give you the slip and receipt and/or order one for you, not sure what proof of purchase you need). I have the first Link one, but my other male RAHs with order slips were Guts and Meliodas, both of which have bodies that will not work for Ginko whatsoever XD But yeah, it's sad... buying a replacement body you can't exactly just buy the same figure, because it will have the same problem.
For the price you got him for he's definitely worth buying a body to restore him! It's definitely a lucky find and I'm sure it will work out with your tenacity haha!

Stacycmc (Vor 9 Monaten) #36435572Yeah, so sometime in 2012 they supposedly made some updates, so if your figure was from 2013 or after, you may be ok.
I will add though, that I've read that this happens more frequently to figures that are not handled, i.e.so they sit in a box and their joints are never worked. I would guess, from the condition of both my Light and Ginko, that they were not handled much...so when I got them and tried to pose them and adjust the joints and such, that could've contributed to the breakage, since they'd likely not been moved in a while. That is just a guess on my part, but they "appear" in really good shape, so I just don't imagine they were moved around a lot to keep the joints in working condition. I'm also not sure that will definitely prevent this issue, but just read something about it at one point...

The-Hurricane (Vor 9 Monaten) #36444908View spoilerHide spoilerYeah so looking at this it seems as if you could take the arms off just below the shoulder and reinstall those onto a new RAH body with relative ease. I would also take the upper torso only as well, you want to limit the amount of old RAH parts and of course use the newer hardware whenever possible.
If you want to cannibalize some of the bodies I found the Mad Hatter RAH for $50 on Rakuten which isn't a bad deal in the least.
item.rakuten.co...
Use FromJapan and you can get him for $45 for through the 28th due to their 10% off Rakuten sale going on.
If you need a newer model RAH since he's from 2010, I see a Joker from 2012 for $60 with the 10% off here:

There's a used RAH Naked body available here starting for $65:
www.ebay.com/it...
There's a Used Like New Naked2 body on Amazon.co.jp for 9800yen:
www.amazon.co.j...
Maybe some of that might help? The Naked and Naked2 bodies also show up relatively commonly on Y!J, like once or twice every 2 months.


Ah thanks so much for the links!! ...and that's what I was referring to about that dern Naked Kai / RAH 301 stand-alone body...like $95 for that thing....they originally sold for like $30 or less. Medicom should just make a new "body" to sell for fixes / replacements. I don't even understand why you couldn't just sell a base body....seems like easy money.

As for the other options, sadly I probably will end up grabbing an old RAH, because they are the ONLY ones I can find without dropping $100. The ones you linked "may" work, but the problem is (with both those and that stand-alone RAH body) is that they were all made before 2012. Sometime in 2012 is when I read they changed the body up, so a figure made in 2013 or after seems like the best path to ensure you try to avoid the same issues I'm facing now. I could get the Mad Hatter or Joker, but both are made using the same bodies Light and Ginko are from so I just worry they'll break too. BUT....I don't think there's many other options aside from spending several hundred bucks on some new RAH figures.

I wish I knew if those dern Kamen rider figures, which Medicom only made like a gabillion of, had regular bodies underneath, i.e. normal skin tone, joints, muscle parts, etc... I just know that Darth Vader for example, has a black body, so it would suck to order a bunch of Kamen Rider figures only to find out they are blue or made funky underneath. I also know the Spiderman figures (which I've seen several of those for fairly cheap), have the clothes "attached" to the body. I also "think" the black suited spiderman has a black body....so that makes me leery of trying one of those out. UGH...c'mon Medicom just sell me a body!!!

I wonder if I wrote them and told them my new figure broke (I dunno....let's say it's Link (ITEM #452581) or the Clockwork Orange figure (ITEM #452305)), as both of these just came out in 2018 or late 2017.....if they would let me buy JUST a replacement body (and I'd be willing to BUY it and PAY for shipping). I just don't think they'd sell me one otherwise. I'd prefer to be honest about it, but honestly don't think they'd sell me a recent body unless it was to correct a recent product or something....

Dunno, it's just a bit disheartening though, as almost every one of my favorite RAH's are made within that period where the plastic had issues, so I just fear this could be a problem for them all, and replacing bodies with OTHER entire figures will get expensive. :(

Btw....thank you SOOO much for the advice and for looking up those options. I may grab that Mad Hatter...I love the Mad Hatter anyway, so for $50 I'd be willing to steal his body, throw him on an Obitsu and use his real body for my other figures (he's pretty covered up in his outfit anyway, doubt you'd ever notice)...and I wouldn't care so much about his head being a wee bit wobbly, it's my super rare/expensive figures I want to be top notch if possible! THANKS AGAIN!!! REALLY, really appreciate the advice and help!

Stacycmc (Vor 9 Monaten) #36435388View spoilerHide spoilerI didn't take his shirt off, but did pull it up to look at him and his shoulder, and I can certainly take some pics as well, but my initial take was he was very similar to the Light RAH body. They came out the same year or think, or pretty close, so wouldn't surprise me at all if they used the same base body. Here is a pic of Light's body...and yeah I have thought about trying to get just any other functioning RAH, and just disassembling (I mean all those screws can be undone right...LOL???)...and re-assembling a frankenstein version, so I can ensure his forearms, neck and chest (i.e. the parts you see) match his hands and face....
Light's body (which looks very similar to Ginko's from my initial observations):

Pinokkio (Vor 9 Monaten) #36435032Yup, back to his coffin :P
You getting allot of crippled RAH's lately. I can see your devotion to your passion! I hoop everything turnouts well.


Haha, yeah he's just kind of perched on his little backpack on my shelf...with his broken arm shitting on his lap (perhaps I should leave it like that and make him a little cast and sling - hehee, just kidding, but it would be cute for a minute)!! I will just let him sit there with his dangly arm until I find a solution, as I don't think the Obitsu body is an option for Ginko whereas it is a "workable" option for Light.

It's my love of the older figures....they did several really cool characters that didn't get a lot of love otherwise (i.e. I also want the Manji figure from Blade of the Immortal - but he's older too, so could break as well). :( I mean if you look at my three fav RAH's....Ginko, Hei, and Light, they don't really have much else in terms of figure options. Manji is the same too....not a lot of love...probably because the anime was just ok, but I love the character though. :D
