Bandai HG Mothra (2004) Review

Closing the Mini Kaiju Spotlight is one of the most popular opponents of Godzilla. Portrayed as a god of Infant Island, guardian, or messenger of Mother Earth, Mothra is a household name next to Godzilla. The figure reviewed here is based on Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S., and was included in Bandai's Godzilla High Grade 10 set.

Bandai HG Destoroyah (1995) Review

The figure to be featured on day 4 of Mini Kaiju Spotlight is a prehistoric monster that was awakened and mutated by the Oxygen Destroyer. Through multiple evolution phases, the final form of this creature was duplicated in a small scale figure. I present to you Destoroyah!

Bandai HG Anguirus (1968) Review

Number three on the Mini Kaiju Spotlight is one of, if not the most trusted ally of Godzilla. Being said as one of the strongest dinosaurs from the prehistoric era and his strong dislike in "war-like predators." His never say die attitude is one of the many reasons why fans like him. Without any further ado, let's review Anguirus!

Bandai HG Hedorah (1971) Review

Number two on Mini Kaiju Spotlight is another monster from the Showa era. Spawned from areas unknown, this creature settled on planet Earth feeding on nothing but pollutants. The continuous consumption of toxins caused some strange organisms to merge into the massive Kaiju, known as Hedorah! This mini figure is from Godzilla Chronicle High Grade Real Figure Set 3.

Bandai HG Ebirah (1966) Review

Welcome to Mini Kaiju Spotlight, the five day marathon that will review mini toys from Bandai HG sets! This fun project will focus on a few allies and villains from various Godzilla movies of different eras. Kicking off this marathon is a figure based on one of the most obscure Kaiju from this genre. Here is Showa Ebirah!

Mini Kaiju Spotlight Special Coming November 24 - 28!

I realized there weren't any Kaiju toy reviews posted in a while, so to make up for lost times, there will be a five day marathon of mini Kaiju toy reviews starting November 24 and ending November 28. That's one figure review each day for five consecutive days!

Here's my plan, the figures that are arranged for a review will come from Bandai's HG (High Grade) set, hence the "Mini Kaiju" part of the main title. I won't review any Godzilla figures at all, rather his co-stars ranging from allies to villains. To give you an obvious clue to which Kaiju will be in a review, please look no further than the silhouette on top of this post.

Who knows, if this project turns out well, I will consider doing another short marathon of mini figure reviews another time. For now, I hope you all enjoy the marathon, and I wish you an early Happy Thanksgiving! Be safe during Black Friday!

Transformers Generations Windblade Review

Windblade is possibly one of, if not the most highly anticipated release from the 10th wave of Generations Deluxe toys. This character's gender, allegiance, alternate mode, color theme, signature weapon, and personality was created by fan output on Hasbro's online polls last year. The outcome, and Hasbro's added influence to Windblade's design, led to the figure seen here.

World of Nintendo Waluigi Figure Review

Wario looked pretty lonely on his own, so to make up for the void, I bought a Waluigi figure to go with him. Although everything seemed fine at a glance, an unimaginable setback turned my excitement down a couple of notches.

World of Nintendo Wario Figure Review

One of the most popular villains/anti-heros of Super Mario is up next for a review! While shopping in Walgreens, I found this Wario figure in the toy section. I normally pass on most video game inspired toys, but this one was definitely interesting, and the cheap price tag made that moment even more compelling.
