Review: Playmates Toys Classic 84′ Voltron

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Playmates Toys has actually been doing a fantastic job in my opinion when it comes to the Voltron Lions. Both the Legendary Defender (albeit a bit finicky) and these Classic Voltrons are amazing releases and I can’t wait to see if they will be making another versions. The paint QC issue is something I really wished Playmates Toys really looked into, but overall the lions turned out much better than I expected. In conclusion I recommend…

Review: Ben 10 Reboot 5 Inch Four Arms

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Moving on to the final new alien release in the first wave of the Ben 10 Reboot 5 Inch figures we will now be looking at Four Arms. I was quite disappointed in the Bandai of America release of Four Arms due to the lack of articulation, however it is nice to see that Playmates’ version of Four Arms is far superior. The overall design, size, and pretty much everything about this version of Four Arms…

Review: Ben 10 Reboot 5 Inch Ben Tennyson

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Today we will be looking at the titular hero himself, Ben Tennyson in the Ben 10 Reboot 5 inch action figure line. Out of the all the Ben 10 Reboot Figures I think Ben himself is a mixed bag. While I don’t blame Playmates Toys for the overall design since that is mainly the fault of the animation team, I think he turned out a bit wonky. His head is a little too big causing him…

Review: Ben 10 Reboot 5 Inch Diamondhead

The next figure will be looking at from the Ben 10 Reboot 5 inch toyline is Diamondhead. I personally think as a standalone figure Diamondhead is one of the best figures in the line since Playmates Toys managed to get his gimmick done right. It would have been nice to see more diamond attack parts or at least one for each hand, but it is still nice to see one get included in general. If you are fan of Diamondhead than I highly recommend picking this up. I got this…
