HGBF 1/144 Beargguy III (SAN)

My latest project for the Let's Build a Model! series was HGBF 1/144 Beargguy III (SAN). Frankly, my particular taste in Mobile Suits certainly doesn't include a cute, mechanized bear in the criteria, yet this particular model looked very strange, but cool altogether. Needless to say, Beargguy drew me in. This model was a straight build with no added customization.

(Update: 8/22/14) Dorats Included with SHMA Mecha King Ghidorah!

Promotional pictures of S.H. MonsterArts Mecha King Ghidorah has surfaced, and as a big surprise, Tamashii Nations will also include three Dorats in the set! Besides the little creatures, Mecha King Ghidorah will be equipped with machine hand accessories that fit perfectly with the new Godzilla (Adult Jr.) figure.

Mecha King Ghidorah will be released as a web exclusive in late February 2015 (March 2015 in USA). The suggested retail price is $199.99, but there's no doubt that most online stores will offer a better rate.

Official images can be found through Tamashii Nation's main page.

(Update 8/22/14) Mecha King Ghidorah is up for preorder at Big Bad Toy Store for $189.99.

TMNT (movie) The Shredder Review

The thought of Playmates still producing TMNT figures to this day, is certainly admiring. In more than a decade later, Playmates still upholds their services by creating a separate line of TMNT figures inspired by the latest movie. I can't say I'm anticipating this flick, nor am I willing to go see it, unless someone dragged me into it. However, this particular figure was compelling enough to buy. Bear in mind, this review was made before viewing the movie, so there may be some faulty assumptions about the on-screen character based on what's presented on this toy.

S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (Adult Jr.) Review

In an unpredictable move, S.H. MonsterArts stunned the collectors community by announcing this particular figure's release. Even more interesting is the back story behind this creation, which is being referred as the moment when Godzilla Jr. absorbed Godzilla's radiation during the meltdown phase (Godzilla vs. Destoroyah) towards the ending. The absorption evolved Godzilla Jr. into the creature you saw before the closing credits. This figure is referred as "Adult Jr." or "Rebirth" Godzilla among collectors.

Transformers Generations Legends Class Cosmos & Payload Review

This review is long overdue. My local Walmart finally stocked these figures on their shelves for the first time. I'm not sure why some Transformers toys can't be stocked immediately following their official release dates. Opinions aside, Cosmos and Payload are part of the new breed of Legends Class toys whose size is more in scale with Cyberverse Commander Class toys. They are around the fifth entry into this new series.
