Power Rangers Lightning Collection – Lord Zedd Review

Hasbro’s line of collector’s focused Power Rangers action figures, known as the Lightning Collection, has started to make its way out to fans. While the street date is officially April 22nd or May 1st (Depending where you look), Amazon began delivering Lord Zedd to some of those who pre-ordered it. Luckily, one of those orders belonged to Hero Club’s own Soundout12 who has presented a review for us today. Almost guaranteed to be the hardest to find figure of the first wave, Lord Zedd looks striking in his packaging and cuts a very striking silhouette, but how is…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Ultraman Zero

Tamashii Nations finally adds Ultraman Zero to the S.H.Figuarts line after being a character released countless times as an Ultra-Act. In addition, Tamashii Nations adds the character to the line shortly after releasing S.H.Figuarts Ultraman Zero Beyond a form he obtained in Ultraman Geed. Nevertheless, this S.H.Figuarts release nearly matches the Ultra-Act 2.0 release for its accessory count, but improves the overall scale and articulation to match other tokusatsu figures. However, compared to the Ultra-Act it omits the signature attack effects like the Wide Zero Shot. Yet, there are more…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Zi-O

Kamen Rider Zi-O, the twentieth and the final Heisei Rider finally arrives in the S.H.Figuarts line. This release of the figure is marketed as a part of the 20 Kamen Rider Kicks series, an anthology of re-issues to commemorate the 20 Heisei Riders. However, there are new items like the Kamen Rider Zi-O related products, and the upcoming Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Kiva.   Now as for the actual product, it is released in a similar fashion as last year’s S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Build RabbitTank. For those unaware, I am…

Review: Super Mini-Pla Denji Sentai Megaranger Galaxy Mega & Delta Mega Set

Let’s rocket with the release of Bandai’s Super Mini-Pla Galaxy Mega and Delta Mega Set! These mecha originate from the 21st installment in the Super Sentai series, Denji Sentai Megaranger. However, western audiences will recognize these items as the Astro Megazord and Delta Megazord from Power Rangers In Space!   Now, these model kits transform between spaceship and robot mode, while being very reminiscent of the original deluxe toys. Yet, the designs are updated to feature multiple points of articulation. In addition, the two can combine to become Super Galaxy…

Review: HGUC Sinanju Stein (Narrative Ver.)

Welcome to Soundout12’s brand-new Model Kit Monday! The series is back from a long hiatus and this week we’ll be looking at the HGUC Sinanju Stein (Narrative Ver.). This kit was released in October 2018 for 2800 yen/ $32.99 and is based upon the Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative film. The Sinanju Stein was used by the primary antagonist of the movie, Zoltan Akkanen and the kit reuses most of its parts from the HGUC Sinanju. That being said, there’s a lot of great engineering involved with the building of the kit itself and this ends up being quite unique. Check out the video review…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Ultraman Rosso Flame & Ultraman Blu Aqua

Tamashii Nations has decided to “color me” with their power, or at least try to with the release of Ultraman R/B’s Ultraman Rosso and Ultraman Blu as S.H.Figuarts. Now, starting off the series is our heroes in their base forms, Flame and Aqua. In addition, they are sold individually which somewhat defeats the purpose of them being practically inseparable siblings in the show. Nevertheless, their packaging and contents are nearly identical. However, these figures feature a few new tricks which Tamashii has developed to improve these and future figures/ molds.…

Review: Super Mini-Pla Goshin Gattai Kakure Daishogun & Tsubasamaru Set

Whether it is “Hidden Style: Super Ninja Beast Jutsu!” or “We need Ninjazord power now!” this Super Mini-Pla set is going to meet fan expectations! First off, this Super Mini-Pla set features all five parts that form Kakure Daishogun/ Ninja Megazord, as well as it is sold alongside Tsubasamaru/ Ninja Falconzord. Secondly, with these two of the Three God Generals together their box art is double billed, having the same vintage homage like Muteki Shogun. The build while not shown is actually seems easier than previous Super Mini-Pla releases. Once…

Transformers “Bumblebee” Review

In 2007 it was a pretty scary point in time for the Transformers, seeing as Transformers: Cybertron ended its run the year prior, there was no major presence for the franchise.

However, over the course of following 11 years since the Transformers made their first live-action debut it has turned out to be a crazy ride. With the success of the first movie, each…
