R348 Kotobukiya Marvel Bishoujo SDCC Exclusive Metallic Spider Woman PVC Statue

16 08 2014

Spider-Woman enters Kotobuiya’s Bishoujo PVC statue series with this exclusive SDCC metallic color version. Featuring beautiful sculpting, Spider-Woman sports a striking metallic color finish. Includes a custom base and alternate maskless face that can swapped on. Priced at about $75 but most likely not so cheap on the after market so good luck hunting her down.

Today’s Arrival: S.H. Figuarts Masked Rider Kabuto Renewal 2014 Version

9 04 2014

Thanks to the good folks at CSToysJapan.com, I finally got my hands on the renewal 2014 version of Masked Rider Kabuto.  Here’s a photo comparison against the original S.H. Figuarts release from October 2008. The box of the new version is very high quality, reminds me of an Apple product style box. The window packaging is gone and you get a very grain close up photo of the figure on the front. The box is less wide and tad taller than before.

Thickness is definitely apparent here with the new box. There’s also a bit of weight to it.

The back seems to embrace more white space along with using smaller photos of the figure. Text is still heavy as before.

The new figure has better proportions and seems more humanoid than its predecessor. Note that the head sculpt is more TV show accurate.

Overall, the renewal feels more filled out giving off the illusion that the person underneath the suit has some muscle. As you can see, the original version has not stood up to the test of time and Bandai truly delivered with an amazing remold of this beloved Kamen Rider.

A full video will be posted soon so stay tuned.
