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.

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!

Review: Super Mini-Pla Gridman the Hyper Agent Set

It is time to “Access Flash!” with Bandai’s Super Mini-Pla release for Tsuburaya Productions’ Gridman the Hyper Agent! However, North American fans should recognize the character due to DIC Entertainment’s adaptation as Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad.

With the inclusion of the support vehicles they can combine together to form the support mecha, God Zenon, or with Gridman to become Thunder Gridman. Furthermore, Gridman features optional parts for display purposes like additional…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Wizard Flame Style

Tamashii Nations has chosen to “Shabadoobi Touch Henshin” Kamen Rider Wizard into the S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou series! With Kamen Rider Wizard Flame Style receiving Shinkocchou Seihou treatment the original becomes obsolete. Luckily that is a good thing too, since the original S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Wizard is not good representation of the character. Yet, even with this vast improvement the Shinkocchou Seihou does feature minor flaws within its sculpt and accessories. However, those flaws are more apparent within the actual video… Please favorite, like, comment and subscribe to my channel! Like…

Review: S.H.Figuarts Ultraman X & Gomora Armor Set

Tamashii Nations has added the titular Ultraman from the 27th Ultra series, Ultraman X, to their S.H.Figuarts line! In addition, to making S.H.Figuarts Ultraman X, the figure comes with the Gomora Armor, as seen in the series. Now, the addition of the Gomora Armor is expected, since the armor concept was part of the series theme and tied to the year’s collectible gimmick. Furthermore, having the figure and armor together is nearly essential since it was not just the first used, but the main one due Daichi’s connection to the…

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,…
