From Pokemon Sun & Moon — one of the few generations I haven’t played — comes Yveltal in plamo form! Yveltal is a dark/flying type legendary that looks frankly badass. This kit came out in October of 2013, at the same time as Xerneas, the other legendary of this generation of pocket monsters.
As always, there are quite a few gimmicks built into the kit. This one looks even more dynamic than most, thanks to the wings and tail featuring articulation in two spots each. The feet can pivot, the neck can move, and the mouth can open and close.
We’re also shown a special clear stand that can be used to display Yveltal two different ways.
Here are more demonstrations of the articulation, with Yveltal on its stand.
And here is the breakdown of runners. I like that there are no huge stickers for this kit; the small, detail stickers tend to go on easier and look better than, say, Dratini’s body. (I’m never going to let my sticker beef with that kit go.)
Of course, we get a full-color instruction manual that reduces the stress of figuring out what goes where. It’s a very visual kit that makes for very easy assembly.
A1: Red, black, grey, and clear parts. We’re getting parts for the legs, cloud collar, stand, and a few wing parts here, mostly.
B: Black: Wing parts
C: Red: Wing and torso parts
And that’s it! Here are those lovely stickers and the instruction book. I’m actually eager to get this one put together because I’m thinking that the stickers may look pretty good on the finished kit!
