Monkey D. Luffy – P.O.P Sailing Again | Figure Review | Megahouse

We have here an unboxing review of an Excellent Model Portrait.Of.Pirates Sailing Again version – Monkey D. Luffy. This is a 1/8 scale PVC figure which is manufactured by Megahouse. This is the first POP SA figure we have opened so we really did not know what to expect. But all I can say regarding POP figures is that they do make one of the best One Piece scale figures out there. Not to mention that the figures come with several other poses. “Sailing Again” refers to the return of the Straw Hat crew after the “2 year time-skip”. By this time, Luffy already have scars on the chest, other than that he looks almost entirely the same. This figure comes with 3 facial expressions and 7 arms you can choose from. Plus you get to have a piece of MEAT that Luffy always love!

Hot Toys Iron Man 2 – Mark II Armor Unleashed Ver. Review | MMS150 Unboxing

Today we are going to have a quick review of the Hot Toys Iron Man Mark 2Armor Unleashed Version. This is technically version 2.0 for the HT Mark 2. Aside from the overall figure or sculpt improvements over the first version, they added the removable armor gimmick as well. This version has the head sculpt of Don Cheadleactor who played as James Rhodes in the Iron Man 2 movie.  The set comes with a table that enables you to re-enact the scene wherein the suit was taken apart in the US military base. An overall amazing figure – color and presentation wise. Has lots of extra accessories which you can use to perhaps create the Tony Stark Mech Test Version.  It reminds me of Silver Surfer….

Max Factory Hatsune Miku VN02 Mix Figure Review | Vocaloid

We have here an unboxing review of the Hatsune Miku VN02 Mix figure, created by Max Factory distributed by GSC. We bought this figure back in 2011 for around 3700 pesos. It was released June 2010 with the price of around 12k Yen. The figure is 1/8th scale and stands around 270mm high. Overall this is a fantastic figure. The details and colors are awesome. It is not often that you get to buy a nicely done figure that comes with a free yet well made stand. The use of translucent materials for the hair and the stand is note worthy feature. It looks like the hair is glowing green when light passes through it. On with the review!

DX Soul Of Chogokin Mazinger Z and Jet Scrander Review

We have here a double review of 2 DX Soul of Chogokin figures namely MAZINGER Z and JET SCRANDER (they are the first DX SOC set). Mazinger Z came out 2012 Q4 and Jet Scrander on 2013 Q2. The Mazinger Z figure stands at 12 inches and has light and sound functions which can be controlled via a remote! It also comes with a HANGAR to house the figure and unused armors (think mini diorama). The quality is top notch! Bang for Buck wise, a super robot collector should not miss getting this one! What it might lack in articulation makes up for the cool gimmicks and the set as a whole. The set was meant as a display piece and not mainly for playing around. On with the review!

Banpresto One Piece WCF Mega Franky Shogun Review

We have here an unboxing review of a “SUUUPPPEEERR!” amazing Banpresto One Piece Mega World Collectible Figure (WCF) namely the Franky Shogun (a.k.a General Franky) . The MEGA WCF series is bigger (14cm tall) than its regular counterpart which is WCF (7cm tall). We got it for around 900 pesos including the discount. All we could say is that bang-for-buck wise, this figure is worth the purchase. If displayed on its full width, it can reach around 24cm or 9.5 inches. This deformed version of General Franky (Shogun) was well made. By WELL we meant the proportion of the figure, the materials used and the overall paint job is good! A must have for One Piece fans, newbies and old collectors alike! ^_^

Hot Toys Iron Man 2 – Suit-Up Gantry with Mk IV Review | MMS160 | Unboxing

Finally decided to open one of our Hot Toys figure namely the Iron Man 2 Suit-Up Gantry with Mark IV so we could do a quick review. Well, it was not actually quick because it took me 3 days to finish the photo-set because I keep on messing up the camera settings. Anyway, all I could say is that we really really love this figure! I feel guilty keeping him inside the box because something like this deserves to be displayed. The details of the armor and likeness of the head sculpt to actor Robert Downy Jr.  is just amazing! Bang for buck wise, this is a sure winner! A must have for any Hot Toys collector. A very nice subject for photography as well!

Talking Minion Dave Review | ThinkWay Toys

It is the latest craze in the Philippines! These so-called MINIONS of the movie Despicable Me 2 is actually a big hit all over Facebook. Fans both young and old are into collecting them. Well who would not like them Minions, they are funny and cute! Of course, we ourselves are victims of their cuteness. Our review for today will be of Talking Minion Dave made by ThinkWay Toys.  I think this one falls under their ThinkToy line. So the first time we heard about this talking figure, we immediately bought one.  The price on Toys R Us is 2599 pesos, but I heard the lowest is 2300 php.

Kaiyodo Danboard Cardboard Assembling Kit | Review | Big Scale

Everybody loves Danboard. We are no exception to that. That is why we are happy to present this assembly review of Kaiyodo’s Big Scale Danboard. This version is the biggest build-it-yourself Danboard around. However, even though it is big, it is made out only of cardboard material held together by crafty folding and some plastic screws. Some glue or adhesive is required! It is about 14.5 inches high and roughly more than 12 inches wide.  It was not as easy to build as it looks. There were some parts that need some thought processing. Anyway, this is a must have for Yotsuba fans. This is best partnered with the Big Scale Yotsuba. So I advise to get them both! Special thanks to Hubbyte Toy Store for the special discount we got for this cutie!

Mini Tyrael | BlizzCon 2011 | SideShow Souvenir Collectible | Review

We have here an unboxing review of a Mini Tyrael figure. This is a BlizzCon 2011 Souvenir Collectible. It seems to be produced by Sideshow collectible specifically for that big event. You can only get it if you attended the particular convention. However, we were fortunate enough to find one sold  locally. Anyone who played Diablo will immediately know who this ICONIC angel character is. A very cute desktop buddy if you might ask me. A must have for a Diablo player or fan.
