R347 Kotobukiya Marvel Bishoujo SDCC Exclusive Psylocke PVC Statue Review

16 08 2014

Kotobukiya strikes again with another SDCC Exclusive, this time with the classic colored Psylocke as part of their Bishoujo PVC Statue Series. Featuring her classic blue colored uniform, Psylocke is in very ninja-like pose complimented with a custom base, sword, and exclusive pink effect part. Priced at about $75 but chances are you won’t find so cheap on the after market. Happy hunting.

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Power Up!

9 08 2014

It’s rare I find myself on a Saturday afternoon inside of Toysrus. I never ever find anything descent but for once I lucked out. Spotted the 2nd wave of Power Rangers Super Megaforce 5″ figures. We get some classic Reds from the past. Had to get Zeo Ranger V. Red Wildforce and Red Jungle Fury didn’t look too bad and I love how each figure isn’t reusing too manybody parts, especially in the glove and boots areas. Each of these sell for $9.99.

Snagged a couple of Marvel Legends Infinite Series Figures. 1st Gamora from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie which includes a Groot Build-A-Figure Part.

Next the Toysrus exclusive Cyclops with the X-Head design. I was never a Cyclops fan but ever since he killed Charles Xavier in the comics, I somewhat like his new black/red X-Head design. He includes a Build-A-Figure part for a very cool looking Jubilee. Each of these ML figures are $21.99. Ouch.

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.

Mattel Man of Steel Movie Master Superman 01

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

Mattel Man of Steel Movie Master Superman 04

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.

Mattel Man of Steel Movie Master Superman 03

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

Mattel Man of Steel Movie Master Superman 05

And he scales equally with Movie Master Dark Knight Batman.

Mattel Man of Steel Movie Master Superman 06

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: Return of Marvel Legends Dark Wolverine (Daken)

12 10 2012

I thought I’d never find this version of Dark Wolverine in stores but I happen to stumble upon the masked version at Target this morning. He sports a much leaner body compared the SDCC X-Force Wolverine which is awesome. Check it out.
