R303 Square Enix Plays Arts Kai Man of Steel: Faora-Ul Review

22 12 2013

The cold hearted Faora-Ul joins Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai Man of Steel movies series. Standing 9 inches tall, she is beautifully sculpted with a phenomenal paint job. Included with the figure are 2 extra hands, alternate back piece (for non-cape look), dagger, and display stand. Priced at about $60 (Amazon).

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Target Shopping

29 05 2013

I thankfully work next to Target store so every now and then during the week I can easily stop by and browse the toy aisle. Target put their mini Man of Steel movie display and I spotted the only Movie Master Superman figure ($15.99).

The blister card packaging isn’t anything special but Superman is nicely posed within. Really excited to see the movie.

He includes a Superman Logo display stand that’s very textured.

The most apparent thing about the figure is that his entire suit is textured. Not loving the fact the S Logo is textured…it feels weird.

He scales equally to other Mattel figures such as the DC Unlimited New 52 version of Superman.

And he scales equally with Movie Master Dark Knight Batman.

Also spotted a cool Hasbro Marvel Universe Uncanny X-Men 3-pack featuring Wolverine, Longshot, and Rogue. You also get a non-poseable Baby Cyclops.

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Mattel DC Comics Unlimited New 52 Superman

22 12 2012

I’m really digging the new Superman design based off DC Comics New 52 Universe. Here’s Mattel’s 2nd release of him but this time with an awesome metallic paint job. The packaging is very modern and slick.

Sculpted by the Four Horsemen, this figure looks even better just by the shiny paint job alone.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison with Mattel’s DC Classics All-Stars version of the figure (on left).

He’s to scale with all previous DC Classics and Unlimited figures by Mattel. Here he is next the Mattels’ DC Classics All-StarsĀ  (New 52) Batman and Batman Unlimited (New 52) Batgirl.

This is definitely the better of the 2 versions of this figure. I can’t say enough about how the metallic paint job makes this figure feel more finished. Retails for about $20.
