Bandai Star Wars 1/12 Darth Vader Model Kit

13 03 2015

When Bandai announced they were doing model kits with the Star Wars brand, I never would have guessed they’d be doing characters. What better way to kick off the line than the Sith Lord Darth Vader. He scales perfectly with the Hasbro’s 6″ black series. This kit is very, very detailed but because its a model kit, you have to detail all the little buttons on Vader’ s chest and belt. Luckily you have 2 decal sheets to help but ideally, you’ll want to use paint for a better look. The articulation system isn’t super out of this world but you definitely get all the need points for good posing. The cape can be annoying to pose with due to its 3 part functionality. I found the outer pieces popped off a little too easy. The assembly process is pretty easy, maybe a 2-3 hr build with stickers application. I definitely prefer this kit to Hasbro’s 6″ Black Series Vader figure, especially the helmet which looks so much more screen accurate.

R196 Mega Bloks Spider Sense Spider-Man Techbot Model Kit Review

2 05 2012

There are times when you stumble on things at the toystore that just catch your eye. This is one of those times.

I’m never been into Mega Bloks or Lego during my lifetime but I made a one-time exception. Mega Blocks released a few Marvel Comics character techbot model kits…in this case Spider-Sense Spider-Man. Comprised of 45 pieces, you just need 20 minutes to assemble this 10 inch tall figure. Sports a very robotic look & great articulation, Spidey fans can really appreciate the unique design of this model kit. Retails for $19.99 and available at most major toy retailers.
