Kid Robot X Street Fighter Ryu Mini Figure Review

As recapped in my toy hunting experience in Las Vegas, Ryu was bought in a Kid Robot store on the second floor of the Cosmopoliton hotel and casino. I was reluctant to buy myself a blind box out of fear that I may get a character that I like the least. However, the box art and mystery was too tempting to pass up, so here are my results.

Going Toy Shopping In Las Vegas!

While vacationing in Las Vegas, I was determined to go toy hunting in as many stores as possible within my allotted time. My hopes were to find some rare Kaiju or Transformers figures for reasonable prices, and although I wasn't able to find that precious gem, the trips to these three different stores were still fun nonetheless.

This is my toy trip round up!

Transformers ROTF Deluxe Soundwave Review

Soundwave, believe it or not, is my favorite character from the G1 series, and of all time. Yet, I find it ironic that I have yet to own my first G1 figure of him and the reason why I haven't made my decision for so long, is because I'm seeking a toy that is spot on to Soundwave's G1 appearance. The Masterpiece Soundwave, immediately fits the bill, and I'm determined to purchase either the Takara or Toys R Us exclusive version online. In the mean time, I did come across some cool pics of the ROTF figure, so my hunt was on to get Soundwave still sealed and for a good price. I did good, so now all that is left is to review this figure!

TFsource Holiday Exclusive KM-03X Mirrorverse Cyclops Review

Mastermind Creations is one of the fastest growing third party companies to deliver outstanding transforming toys. Following the successful release of KM-03 Cyclops, TFsource made an exclusive deal with Mastermind Creations to offer a limited edition of Cyclops' mini-sub code named, "KM-03X Mirrorverse Cyclops." Cyclops is based on Shockwave, and these machines are themed around technology in the late 1800s.

Transformers Beast Hunters: Cyberverse Commander Shockwave

Transformers Beast Hunters Voyager class Shockwave left me liking this representation of a toy, even though the tank mode made me feel a bit unsatisfied. Because I like the robot mode so much, and the Commander class figures are really fun to collect, Cyberverse Shockwave seems like a good buy. However, there are some issues with this toy, that left me wondering what was Takara/Hasbro thinking during the making of this product?

Transformers Generations Legends Class Optimus Prime & Roller Review

At this moment, I am totally stricken with some kind of "Commander Class" fever. Despite being smaller than Deluxe Class figures, they certainly have a some kind of charm that appeases both kinds and adults, depending which adult collectors you ask. Today, I will review another Optimus Prime toy that, although is technically Legends Class size, is scaled closer to the Commander Class size. Going into the 30th anniversary of Transformers, Hasbro released a set of toys that boasts a substantial amount of detail and articulation in a size class that is smaller than Deluxe scaled toys. This set includes Autobot leader Optimus Prime and his smaller companion Roller.

"Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand" Can Enemies Be Allies?

I admit that I did not follow Transformers Prime on the Hub, but learning about Unicron's reoccuring role in this series constantly made me wonder how this story unfolded on TV. Thanks to Hasbro Studios and Shout Factory, I am able to conveniently cut straight to the part in season one that intrigued me the most.

Happy Fourth of July (Neo) America!
