SH Figuarts Super Mario Brothers - Yoshi







From what I understand, pre-orders (first issue runs?) of Yoshi come with the "1up" mushroom accessory.


















Optional eyes





Seats. One for Mario and one for Luigi (the thicker one).





With Mario





Seat up!




Unfortunately, Yoshi can't stand without the support base when Mario's onboard. He'll tip backwards.




Jump!!



Sticky tongue











Egg





The bonus "1up" accessory.

















Two types of clips. The thinner one is for Luigi's fist.









Lol... outside of Super Mario Bros. 1, I've never played any other Mario game. :D

Figma #243 Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty Solid Snake





Little ziploc bag to hold the accessories.




Optional hands









I really love this figure, the sculpting and the fun little details are top notch! Figma's really impressed me with this release.




The direction of his eyeballs can even be adjusted using this pick! Holy cow!













Codec call







Lol.. "stealth mode"!



The box is actually unassembled. You will have to apply glue to the edges of the box to get this pose to work. I opted to use magic tape, which kinda took some of the paper surface off when I was peeling the tape off after this photo. I wish they gave us foldable slots instead so there'd be no need to glue the edges together.



SOCOM (Special Operations COMmand) pistol













M16A1














Optional "angry" face included.




"Evade Mode" hands and grip plate included. (note, the big acrylic base is not part of it, just the flat 2x1 plastic plate)

















Last but not least, he comes with 4 cigarette sticks, it's a shame it doesn't come with a pack, so we'd know the brand.

I'm no fan of smoking, but I have to admit it does make Snake look badass. In the Metal Gear Solid games, the smoke is used to spot infra red sensors.




The scale is a bit off for 6". I guess it's closer to 5.5"? He looks small next to DCUC figures...





....But he looks good next to the newer Marvel Legends.





I really hope Max Factory gives us MSG1 Solid Snake. :)

Super Robot Chogokin Black Getter


















*Snikt*











Getter Machine Guns









Getter Beam








Comparison with SRC Getter 1



Capes




Personally, I think it sucks that these weapons are exclusive to each other (Black Getter does not come with Tomahawks and Getter 1 does not come with the guns). I think Bandai should've done a solid for the fans and made them both accessible to both versions. It's not like we're going to buy the Black Getter just for the guns. Shame on you, Bandai.





Getter weighs roughly 157 Grams. Diecast parts include the lower legs, upper part of the torso and the torso-connecting joints.




Overall, it looks better than Getter 1, even thought they didn't improve on the primary design or anything, particularly with regards to the tummy area. I guess with the grey and black colors, plus the matte finish paint and paint apps on the cape, makes the horrible tummy design less noticable? Maybe...

Super Robot Chogokin Grendizer and Spazer



















Screw Crusher Punch!





Double Harken!! (Note that the color of the Harken handles have also been changed to match this figure's blue)















Spazer Cross!












Watch out for this fin. It’s really thin and looks like it will snap off if you aren’t careful.






Soul Stage Act 4 display base (included with the set).




The arms plug into the holes at the bottom of the Spazer.













Space Thunder!




Spin Saucers!







Spin Drills














Comparison with the first release Grendizer








I recall there was some mention of a retooling of the head back in the day. I guess it was just a mistranslation. Both heads have the same sculpt. Just different colors.





Comparison with the SOC Spazer (for those curious)






These parts are exclusive to their individual sets.





It really sucks that we don’t get these effects parts with this set.



Space Thunder!!







Screw Crusher Punch!









The Good
-Weigh in
-- Spazer – 146 Grams
-- Grendizer -171 Grams (curiously, the original SRC Grendizer is 170 Grams…)
-- Grendizer + Spazer – 312 Grams







-Diecast parts are the same with the stand alone SRC Grendizer (upper torso, lower legs and primary joints)


-Show accurate colors! It’s like Grendizer walked right out of the cartoon. The only downside is that the white paint now sort of clashes with the silver colors on SRC Mazinger and Great Mazinger.






-“Spazer Cross” is easy to do and slots in perfectly. The “compressed” sides gimmick for Grendizer’s arms inside the Spazer is pretty sweet and certainly feels a lot easier to do compared to the Cm’s Corp. version.


-Swapping out the saucer accessories is relatively clever and easy to do (just push them sideways until the lids pop free) . Slick job here Bandai. :)


-Optional Soul Stage Act 4 included for the Spazer was a nice touch.





The Bad
-Zero diecast on the Spazer. I was hoping for a little somewhere, anywhere. Zilch….

-Popping in the wings of the Spazer is a bit tricky, and I am worried about repeatedly popping them in and out over time will break something. I liked the way it was done on the SOC back then.

-That line gap on this back parts of the lower legs. It was already awkward to look at with the original SRC release back then, so I was really hoping they would fix this with this release with simply painting a red line down to fix the “gap”.





-Both versions of the Spazers are Tamashii Web Exclusives! It would have been nice, if, at the very least, Bandai made one of them a mass retail release for folks who don’t have access to TWEs IMHO.


-No Koji’s little TFO? Was hoping they would throw this in. It’s not as if Bandai will be releasing a stand alone TFO in the foreseeable future.




The Ugly

Personally I hate the fact that the set does not come with the “effects” accessories from the stand alone Grendizer set. It wouldn’t add much to the cost of the set and it would have made this set perfect.



Despite of a few misses, this set is still really impressive. The flat, disc-like look of the Spazer is very spot on to the Anime. I dare say this is the most show accurate representation of the Spazer in toy form so far (the releases from other companies always seemed too bulky for me).

Super Robot Chogokin Spazer only set





Box is a bit longer than the SRC Grendizer’s box, but the height is about the same.







Set comes with open hands. Colors are the same as the first release Grendizer.

Transformers Takara Unite Wars Superion (Aerialbots 5 pack)












Gotta love the back of the manual. The guy in the car is the Sheik, Hassan, from the G1 episode “Aerial Assault”







Silverbolt
























Slingshot
























Fireflight
















Amazing how a heavily done repaint and a new headsculpt can make this mold into a different, albeit, somewhat show accurate character.
















Air Raid






















Skydive












Same weapons, different colors.












Aerialbots together!








Merge into Superion!!!!












I like how Air Raid and Skydive’s guns can be plugged in here:

















Comparisons with the Hasbro versions (Takaras on the left)

Silverbolt








Fireflight








Skydive










Air Raid






Superion










Also, note that the Takara versions have black screws instead of silver





Quick weight comparison
-Superion – 505 Grams
-Defensor -552 Grams
-Menasor – 599 Grams (without Blackjack)

Transformers Perfect Effect PC-05 Perfect Combiner Upgrade set White version ( for Takara Superion)









Turn your Superion from this:





Into this!






The big feet really make the figure look and feel more balanced.




I’m not too crazy about the fingers though, they make the hand look spindly, I prefer the default hands for my gestalts.










The feet become giant gattling guns.




While the fingers become rifles.








Just a quick note, the best part about the white parts set is that the gatling guns have painted barrels, unlike the black and purple sets, which do not.



The cominber wars just got a whole lot better thanks to these parts!!

Transformers Movie Series APS01U Ultimate Edition Optimus Prime


Outer Box Sleeve (Big! Measures 22x 14 x 6.5 Inches)



Inner Box (window type)









The (diecast) All Spark bonus accessory (packed separately)















Wow… where did the time go?? I got this thing 2 months ago and I only manage to fiddle with it this week. Work… sigh…


Anywho, this figure is the “Ultimate” version of movie Prime. It’s basically Striker Optimus Prime and comes with all the accessories and bells and whistles that came with all the previous releases from TF movies 1 to 3 (Buster, Striker and Jetwing Optimus Primes). It’s also painted better and has a ton of detailed paint applications not found on the previous releases.


Tinted windows and detailed mechanical paint apps.

















Prime also comes with electronics, if you push the belly tab, he only says “ We must stop the Decepticons” though.





I believe this is also the first version of movie Prime to feature articulated fingers. They’re a nice touch but nothing epic, since the fingers aren’t individual. They move in pairs.






Weapons!

Ion Blaster (From Buster Optimus)









Eliminator gun and Assault Blaster (Mech Tech weapons, both combine to form Mega Striker)














Mega Striker and Shield












Battle Blades










Battle Hooks (Killed Grindor in Revenge of the Fallen)





Knuckle (used against Shockwave in Dark of the Moon? I have to rewatch that, I don’t recall Prime deploying such a weapon)








The All Spark






It’s made of diecast metal and weighs 10 Grams











Lol… Swiss Army Prime :)







Comparison with the Jetwing Optimus Prime






I guess I do kind of wish Prime had an alternate “masked” head. Letting him have all this gear and not have the mask on seems kind of wrong….
















Jetwings





Prime still requires these additional foot supports when the Jetwing is strapped on, to prevent him from falling backwards.






Thruster nozzles are moveable (adjustable)




















Going to war










Prime weighs about 537 Grams




With the wings and gatling guns equipped, Prime weighs about 1021 Grams.





Vehicle mode (Mad Max eat your heart out…)









You can basically load everything onto Prime all at once (copying the pic from the box). But some of the connections aren’t as solid as I would’ve liked. Still, it looks pretty bada$$ for about a few minutes or at least until something falls down. :)







“Autobots! Transform and Roll Out!”

Transformers Platinum Edition G1 Trypticon


Box seems unnecessarily big (19x13x7 inches)














Well here’s a nice surprise, I never thought we’d finally get a reissue of this guy since there was no news of incoming G1 reissues for some time now. :)





Lol.. face cannon.







Brunt








Hmm… Gi Joe MASS Device?









Full-Tilt





Man I am so happy with this reissue, I was about to grab Full-Tilt’s Electro Disruptor Gun for my vintage figure when the new hit. That little piece of plastic is selling for about $30-$50 on Ebay.

















City mode




Eject button for Full-Tilt









Battle Station mode









Lol.. a lot of warning labels come with the figure now for the electronics.






Batteries required 2x size C batteries for Trypticon’s motorized walk and 1x size AA for Brunt’s light up cannon.



Trypticon stands roughly 11” tall.




Weighs over a Kilo (1279 Grams)






Metroplex weighs 624 Grams for those curious. :)








Comparison with the G1


New screw added to lock in the battery cover in the reissue.



Engraved Takara logo on the original, simple sticker on the reissue. Plus lighter violet colored parts on the reissue.




Hmm… metal ball bearing on the leg on the original (for weight balance?). Simple plastic “bulge” on the reissue.




Gold foil eye stickers for the vintage and yellow eye stickers on the reissue.









With G1 Takara Encore Metroplex




Full-Tilt and Scamper








“We’re comin for ya Metroplex!”

Transformers Fanstoys FT-06 Sever (Dinobot Snarl)












Energy sword




Rifle











Dino mode







I love the details on the tail.











Optional parts include:


-Red eyes for Robot mode
-Red eyes for Dino mode
-“Angry” face plate



“Angry” face





Diecast parts include
-Feet
-Lower Torso
-Dino mode head
-Dino mode front legs


Sever weighs about 865 Grams





Sever requires 4 pieces of L626 (LR66) type batteries for his weapons to light up (2 each for the gun and the sword).




I feel somewhat sad for Snarl, he wasn’t really given much personality and characterization in the cartoons and was totally left out in the 1986 movie.







Just one more Dino to go and we’ve got the whole team! :)
