Playmates Toys To Release Classic Voltron

Bigbadtoystore has updated with official pre-orders for a new Classic Voltron release by Playmates Toys.  For those who are unaware these lions are based on the original Voltron: Defender of the Universe series. The first season of the series ran from September 10, 1984 to November 27, 1984, being adapted entirely from Beast King GoLion. However, due to overwhelming popularity of the Lion Force Voltron a second season was commissioned, and aired the following year from October 21, 1985 to November 18, 1985. Yet, the original lions would return 13 years later in Voltron: The Third Dimension, which served as a direct sequel to…

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…

Review: Ben 10 Reboot 5 Inch XLR8

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. The next alien in the Ben 10 Reboot toyline we will be looking at is XLR8. The figure overall in my opinion is a vast improvement to the original Bandai America toy design since he is no longer stuck in an awkward pose. The figure also includes more accessories, which I appreciate since it is something that the Bandai America releases lacked. Overall XLR8 is another great release in the reboot toyline and I highly recommend…

Review: Ben 10 Reboot 5 Inch Cannonbolt Review

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Continuing on with the Ben 10 figure reviews we will now look at Cannonbolt. While Cannonbolt isn’t the most articulated figure in the entire wave (mostly cause of his design) he is still a really well made figure. The design is spot on to his on screen appearance and at least he can do more than the Bandai America toy. Overall there aren’t really any major issues I have with this figure and I highly recommend adding…

Review: Ben 10 Reboot 5 Inch Heatblast

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Today we will be looking at the Ben 10 Reboot 5 inch Heatblast figure. Seeing as Heatblast is one of my more favorite aliens in the original cast I was glad to see a much better figure representation of the character. While I enjoyed the figures released by Bandai of America for what they were they didn’t seem to capture the aliens as well due to their smaller size and limited articulation. Surprisingly enough Playmates Toys…

Review: Ben 10 Reboot Deluxe Ominitrix

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review.  Today we will be looking at the Deluxe Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot toyline. Whether you enjoy the Ben 10 Reboot or not it is easy to say that the toy quality looks much better than the Bandai America toys at least with what is available at launch. The roleplay Omnitrixes have been 50/50 depending on the season, but it is great to see that the Reboot version is really nicely made. The sounds are…
