Review: Super Mini-Pla Ninja Gattai Muteki Shogun/ Shogun Megazord

Whether it is “Hidden Style: Giant Beast General Jutsu!” or “We need Shogunzord power now!” this Super Mini-Pla set is bound to deliver! First off, the box is based on the original Deluxe Muteki Shogun, so it gives off a nostalgic vibe. The build while not shown is actually very tedious and annoying, but somehow I found it enjoyable too. Now, once constructed the Giant General Beasts feature several points of articulation and have their signature weapons. Whereas, when combine as Muteki Shogun/ the Shogun Megazord it is stands magnificently,…

Review: S.H.MonsterArts Godzilla (1964) Emergence Version

I finally managed to purchase the S.H.MonsterArts Godzilla (1964): The Emergence of Godzilla Version, while I attended Power Morphicon 2018. Now, this the 2015 Premium Bandai repaint/ reissue of the 2013 release, S.H.MonsterArts Godzilla (1964) as seen in Mothra vs. Godzilla. This repaint specifically depicts Godzilla’s first appearance in the film, erupting from the beach side area thus the name Emergence Ver. However, the dirt and sand stuck to the MosuGoji suit for most of the production. In addition, this repaint/ reissue includes a Tamashii Effect piece to recreate Godzilla’s…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Cross-Z Charge

Tamashii Nations got charged up when they decided to release S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Cross-Z Charge at retail! Now, for those not aware, this is the first and only retail S.H.Figuarts figure based on Kamen Rider Cross-Z, or any of his other forms. It is a rather shocking release too, since fans have not entirely loved Kamen Rider Cross-Z Charge’s design. The idea of the form was an attempt to recapture the craze Toei and Bandai obtained during Kamen Rider Gaim when promoting Shin Zangetsu and the Genesis Driver. However, in…

Review: Power Morphicon Exclusive Legacy Collection Lord Drakkon

Power Morphicon 2018 has come and gone! The convention itself was great as it featured over 100+ guests, as well as the exclusive Legacy Collection Lord Drakkon figure. A figure several fans desired and sought after following the character’s debut in the Boom! Studios Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers comics. However, fans discovered that in-hand the final product did not turn out exactly as expected. With quality control running rampant throughout the Lord Drakkon figure, I decided to see if my figure had similar issues… Please favorite, like, comment and subscribe…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider W FangJoker

It is once again time to count up our sins, as S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou releases Kamen Rider W FangJoker. With this form, the original mold of the base figure is retooled to feature jagged edges throughout the suit/ body; the motif gives off a feral/ feline vibe. Whereas, the color scheme may make people think of Yin-and-Yang. Its accessory count is very strict and to the point, both literally and figuratively. However, the video goes more in-depth on the figure’s detail, its sharp accessories, and overall stability; so click play…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Ultraman Belial Atrocious

The Demonic Fusion is unleashed within Tamashii Nations’ S.H.Figuarts line, as Ultraman Belial Atrocious arrives. This combination is the fusion of the Dark Lugiel and Alien Empera Kaiju Capsules. For those unaware, Alien Empera was the main antagonist of Ultraman Mebius whereas, Dark Lugiel was the antagonist in Ultraman Ginga/ Ultraman Ginga S. Yet, in this form, Ultraman Belial Atrocious makes me consider it a reference to the Ultra N Project. Never the less, this was Belial’s acquired form for the Geed finale, and it is impressive. The figure features…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Ultraman Jack (The Return of Ultraman)

The fourth Ultraman arrives in the S.H.Figuarts line! Ultraman Jack is from Tsuburaya Productions’ The Return of Ultraman (1971), and competed against the first Kamen Rider series. Now, as a S.H.Figuarts figure, Ultraman Jack does feature a new modified sculpt based on its preceding Ultra Brothers, Ultraman and Zoffy! Since Ultraman Jack is the Ultra to become more of a typical “henshin hero” the figure comes with a variety of accessories; it has weapons and blast effects. Yet, how well does the figure hold up and how many items does…
