Bandai recently revealed the next Ultra Replica release, which is based on Ultraman Ginga’s Ginga Spark. For those unaware, the Ginga Spark is the transformation device used by series protagonist, Hikaru Raido to transform into Ultraman Ginga. However, the Ginga Spark requires use of the series’ collectible gimmick, the Spark Dolls, to obtain Ultraman Ginga’s natural form, or for Hikaru to turn into other Ultras and/ or Kaiju.   Now, the Ultra Replica Ginga Spark contains the device and an updated Ultraman Ginga Spark Doll.

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: 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…

Official Images: S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Kiva

Nearly a decade after the series aired and Tamashii Nations began releasing S.H.Figuarts, Kamen Rider Kiva finally joins the line. Previously Kamen Rider Kiva was partially overlooked by Tamashii Nations, as they only approached the character in his final form as Kamen Rider Kiva Emperor Form; since the figure could be easily retooled as S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Dark Kiva. In addition, Tamashii Nations quickly worked to release the series’ secondary Rider, Kamen Rider Ixa in S.H.Figuarts form during the line’s earlier years.   Now similar to Kamen Rider Hibiki’s release,…
