Tomopop Review: ThreeZero Toys - Michonne's Pets

Jan 06 // Andres Cerrato
Figure Name: The Walking Dead Michonne's PetsFigure Maker: ThreeZero Figure Price: $130 each, $240 setAvailable At: ThreeZero - Red - Green - Set | Entertainment Earth - Red - Green Usually, we'd talk about the box first but that won't happen today as these are an advanced sample review. No packaging was available at the time, so right into the figures. Taking a look at the two, you'll be probably be making the assumption that they are carbon copies of one another. However, they are in fact different via their face, wounds and boxer colors. The later of which is actually how the two versions are sold. Looking at them up-close and you'll fall in love with them. When I first took them out of the box, I was honestly a bit squeamish in how I was going to display these. The detail on the removed mandible is incredible and goes into the innards as well. The job goes deep and detailed as you can see here. Wounds aren't exactly my cup of tea, but I can certainly tell you that they did some great work here. Also, as you may notice, there is no visible neck joint. You won't be able to move the head in any other direction but forward.  Another shot here of the removed mandible and the neck. The skin is done with a soft vinyl, giving it a somewhat fleshy feel. It also allows for more realistic detail with the wounds than traditional plastic. The figures themselves feel organic thanks to the vinyl skin. The wounds of Zombie Red, as I'll refer to him, detail large gashes on the right chest and left rib. Zombie Green features a large, open wound on his upper right rib and scarring on the left side. I'm glad that they've gone ahead and made them dissimilar when they could have easily phoned it in and reused the bodies. In case you are wondering, the wounds on the torso are in fact screen-accurate. The last of the major scars would be that of the arms. Since there are no arms on either figure, that allows for the soft vinyl for the skin about the torso. The paint on the wound itself is as well done as the the torso. You won't notice it unless you're looking for it, but it's the detail that you would expect for a figure like this. The wounds aren't the only thing that were torn up. The jeans are actual denim and scuffed up to show the wear and tear of walking endlessly through the woods. In addition, each pair is different from the other, so the scuffs are unique on each pair. For example, Green's tears allow you to see the rest of the boxer shorts and Red's the knee joint. Speaking of which, the knees themselves are double jointed, reminding you that this is indeed a poseable figure. Even with the greatness poured into the zombies themselves, I like the bags the best. The bags are fully functional. All of the zippers are actual zippers along with each of the buckles. Even though the zombies have no arms, the bags are able to stay on, even without the buckles. Inside the bag is another bag filled with stuffing to fill it out. Theoretically, you could hide some things in there if you'd like and it's a nice feature to have. I won't mess around with it too much, if just to keep things the nice way they are. If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, then you would be impressed with the effort by ThreeZero. The pair is worth the display, but I have to admit that I'm disappointed that they don't have their master, Michonne. If she had come out before these two, I'd probably be more in love with them. Needless to say, they are great poseable figures, even if their only poseable in their legs and ankles. They won't be available until July, so they still have time to fix things up, but to be honest, I can't really recommend any changes. While in promotional shots there were a pair of chopped-off limbs for the backpacks, but those were not included for this review. Given what we've seen here, I think that those will only add to the package. [Thank you to ThreeZero for providing this advanced sample for review!]

Tomopop LinkUP: The Girls und Painter edition

Dec 12 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
Wooser is almost here again! Season two returns in January so that means a big product push for all things Wooser. Kahotan has posted this Belle Maison oshiruko soup set that features rubber straps of mascot Shirukuma and Wooser. They also have a pair of Wooser talking pens. Wing gave a very cryptic hint for one of their next figures. The hint is just an offset black and white image of a fleur-de-lis. They'll be doing their official reveal at Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] in February. Disney has posted on their Insider blog a look at the creation of their Infinity game figures from sketch to final product. The post talks pretty extensively with Art Director Jeff Bunker and Lead Character Designer Jon Diesta of Avalanche Software and their roles in making the game and figures a reality. Chauskoskis appears to be in a Greasebat kind of mood as he's made two of them. Based on Jeff Lamm's characters the first is Dunny baby Greasebat that he has Jeff's OK to make a few resin castings of. The other is an evil Greasebat that is only one of a kind that he put up for auction.  Check out this amazing Iron Samurai kitbash bade by Ken Lee. Reminds me of one of those samurai from Sucker Punch. I thought that movie was kinda awful, but this is very cool! It's 1/6 scale and a nominee for the 3A Customs and Kitbashes 2013 Awards. Good luck! No, I didn't embed an ad into LinkUP. Well, I mean I did, but not for advertising purposes. Matt Hopkins of Custom Papertoys sent along this really cool commercial he worked on for the SPCA. You think stuff like this is done with CG, but it's really stop motion. Matt says he built the models and much of the stop motion.  Tenacious Toys is offering Nerviswrek's Nibirian Drone resin figures by We Are Not Toys. The terrifying little things are hand painted and sold in set of 12 for US$350. Reflective Boundary did a great gallery for Alter's 1/8 Chitanda Eru from Hyouka. I'm glad this show is still getting some great figures, it gives me hope that a second season could be on the horizon! The AmiAmi blog posted a review for the latest Vocaloid GUMI figure. The Megpoid Whisper version made by Aquamarine is in a cute outfit and the bright colors fit her perfectly. She'll be out in February. VISEone displayed six new 16 inch Qee customs at a charity event in Germany recently. His work was a big hit and he even sold one right at the event with all proceeds going to the charity.  Funko is showing off a new series of Uglydoll x DC Comics vinyl figures. Featured are Ice-Bat as Batman, Wedgehead as Robin, and Babo as Superman. They'll be out on February 11.  Ron English has a special Metallic Purple Heart Skull in his PoPaganda store just in time for Christmas gift giving. They're going for US$150 and limited to only 20.  If you've ever wanted to try your hand at building Gunpla with no idea where to start then check out this handy ebook. Mecha Model Guide for Beginners looks to be a very comprehensive guide judging from its preview were it goes deep into all sorts of terminology and even deciphers the little symbols found in the instructions. There's even modeling history in there which could make it a good read even for advanced modelers. The ever-manly Black Star from Soul Eater has gotten the HQS treatment from Tsume with this fantastic looking statue. He's only limited to 250 printed on a metal serial plate and priced at 259€ (about US$356).  Akiba Hobby has posted a review (in Japanese) of Wave's new Beach Queens Chiho from The Devil is a Part-Timer! She'll be out in 2014. Hopefully if she sells really well they'll make a second season of the anime! Tentacle Armada posted a lengthy review of Pop Culture Shock's Katana statue from Mortal Kombat. They've got an awful lot to say about this enormous figure and it sounds like it isn't without its fair share of problems.  And that brings us to the end of another Tomopop LinkUP. See you next week where we'll have another batch of great things to talk about.

Tomopop Review: 3A Real Steel Noisy Boy

Dec 06 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
Figure Name: Real Steel Noisy BoyFigure Maker: 3APrice: US$380Available at: HobbyLink Japan | Hobby Search | Entertainment Earth | Sideshow Collectibles | Big Bad Toy Store Before we talk about what's wrong with this figure let's first talk about everything that's right about it.  First and foremost this thing is amazing looking! The likeness is perfect and looks exactly like the Noisy Boy from the movie. Tons of tiny little pieces were put together to make this one massive bot look as screen-accurate as possible. There's very, very little bare plastic; everything is coated in shiny metallic paint.  From the back he looks just as good. Pretty much anything that looks like it can move does. There are hydraulics, hinges, and pivots that go every which way. That's amplified by the heavy amount of sculpted details throughout.  The armor on his back is removable to access his batteries, and they didn't skimp at all on the mostly obscured details under there. The metallic silver paint and black paint wash really adds an incredible amount of detail.  The most stunning feature is the lights! Noisy Boy has over 500 LEDs running throughout its body. He's got them in his eyes, forearms, chest, back, abs, thighs, and lower legs. The biggest eye-catch is the synchronized lights on the front of his forearms that change patterns at random just like in the movie! I'd say this had something to do with the high price, but seeing as how Noisy Boy is priced similar to the other bots from the line it's possible 3A is taking a hit on this feature. Either way it's phenomenal light work! There's no shortage of articulation either. It isn't super articulated, but it doesn't need to be. His articulation is screen-accurate so he can move the way he does in the movie, but he won't be doing an splits and that's OK. His head can turn side to side, but is a little limited moving up and down thanks to his armor. His shoulders have a full range of motion and you may have noticed that his shoulder armor is movable, so there are no limitations there. There's even a little bit of forward and back pivot to them. You can also spin the forearm and what basically amounts to a wrist. He also has things that resemble thumbs. They don't pop all the way out, they just sort of bend up a little. The elbows only go 90-degrees, but that's accurate. I did this staggered, recoiling pose to demonstrate some of the body articulation that gives him multiple pivot points and twists. The legs don't have a ton of articulation, but what's there is functional. The hips can be spread a little and they can move forward and back fairly well, but there are some limitations caused by the armor. His knees also have about a 90-degree bend to them; no double joints here. The armor on the front of his legs can move a little, too.  His feet are pretty interesting. Aside from looking really cool they have a good amount of articulation allowing them to move in every direction, but only in small amounts. The bottom of his feet are rubberized, but it's really hard rubber so you might not even notice. By now you've probably figured out he has really good balance. Two factors are at work there: Big feet and a surprisingly light body. The figure really doesn't weigh much since most of the body is framework, and there's no diecast. Hilariously (or maybe I'm the only one who thought this was funny) the box this was mailed in had a pairs lift sticker on it even though I own books that weigh more than the whole thing boxed. It also helps that he has satisfyingly stiff joints, some are even the 'clicky' type you find on larger Transformers.  Then there's his size. You didn't think this was actually a small figure at that price did you? Noisy Boy measures in at a very impressive 17 inches tall. By comparison in the back you got the 23 inch Transformers Fortress Maximus and Mattel's 24 inch Voltron. On one side is one of the biggest Power Rangers bots, the Super Train Megazord, and on the other is Takara Tomy's G1-painted Unicron from Armada (Micron Densetsu). Why 17 inches? Because the Real Steel bots are 1/6 scale which means they're made in scale with 12 inch figures. In fact the Bambaland exclusives come with controllers and headsets to be used with 12 inch humans. It's a really great concept. OK, so that's a pretty glowing review so far, right? Everything looks and sounds good? So let's take some time to talk about what went wrong. Very, very wrong.  Disclaimer: This is an advance release for review purposes. It was shipped loose in a cardboard box (albeit with a lot of bubble wrap, packing paper, and styrofoam peanuts) so anything can happen. The figure won't be released to the masses until mid 2014 and all sorts of adjustments and fixes can be made in that time. Take the following as a guide for things to watch out for and not as a list of certain things that will go wrong for everyone.  First off there are a few spots with a tiny amount of paint blemishes, but this one on the top of his helmet is pretty big and hard to overlook. A big section of paint is missing from the back plate. It's not caused by rubbing or anything, it just looks like they missed a spot. Here on the front of his right leg there's a piece on his shin that refuses to stay clipped in place. The piece doesn't serve a function, it simply slides up and down when you pivot the foot to give the impression that it's a functioning part.  It should look like this. On his inner thighs he has these big hydraulics. Both legs are even here. On the right side you can see that the silver piece at the top pivots with the leg. On the left side the silver piece was frozen by the paint, and even after I got it unstuck it was very stiff. That's not the entirety of the problem. Inside the hydraulic is actually a spring that guides the piece back when the leg straightens out. Since the silver part doesn't move right the spring will sometimes get stuck and as you can see it has gotten stretched and uncoiled at the end. The top of his leg rubs terribly on on his 'belt' causing some really nasty looking paint scuffing. Thankfully it's on the back of the leg, but unfortunate all the same.  Here's where things get extra nasty. Notice something strange about the neck hydraulic on the left? The way it sits lower than the one on the right? That's because it snapped right off at the top and slipped down. See, the top and bottom of all four hydraulics (two in front; two in back) are ball jointed, but some of these balls got frozen by the paint. I had no way of knowing that, so after posing him for an hour the piece just broke off. This is actually the second one to break, one on the back of his neck also broke and came off completely. Take a look at his neck in the second photo in this review, you'll see it. Even after these broke I wasn't able to free the joint, they're stuck in there really well.  I'm showing this picture again to illustrate the last problem. You see, the purple armor on each side is a little flexible and normally there's a big piece of armor in the middle covering the battery door in the center. To take that middle section off you're actually asked to "open and hold the scapula armor" and "pry up the back armor". Well that's much easier said than done. First off there's no way of telling how much effort it should take to do any of this. While pulling the scapula armor to the side one side came unglued. It didn't break off, but it isn't being held on as well either. After a ton of effort I finally got the back armor off. Now, the whole reason I had to go through all of this is because even though 3A was nice enough to install batteries (the retail version doesn't include them so have fun with all of this on yours), they came loose in shipping. Be careful with the screws, they aren't plugged at the end and will fall out if you're not careful. Once I got the batteries back in place and got the door back on I tested the lights which all worked fine. Thinking all I had to do was reverse the steps I thought I was out of the woods. I was wrong. The back armor is just as hard to put back as it is to take off and it snapped back into place with a pretty loud snap. That snap was one of the armor ribs partially cracking. Arg! And to make matters worse I managed to jostle the batteries again in the process so I had to go through all of this a second time! Thankfully they stayed in place the second time at least long enough for me to do this review. If they ever come loose again I doubt I'll go through the trouble of putting them back a third time.  Oh, and there's an L-shaped bar on the inside of the right foot that loves to fall off when I move it. Yay... So with all that against it what do I think of it? Well, just to recap, the figure itself is beautiful, the paint is really great, the articulation good, and the lights are phenomenal! If this figure had absolutely perfect quality control then it would come highly recommended even at the price. However, with the major flaws (which I think will be fixed before release) I can't imagine what type of emotions I would feel if I spent US$380 of my own money on this and had this many problems. Honestly if you really want one I would wait until after it is released and check out reviews from people who got it at retail to be positive the issues have been corrected. Think of this review as a possible worst case scenario and a cautionary tale of what might turn up in mid-2014.  [Huge thanks to 3A for sending us the advance review sample!]

SDCC 2013: ThreeA - Valve, Halo and other licenses

Jul 19 // Brian Szabelski
On the Valve side of things, Atlas and P-Body were of course at the SDCC booth, but joining them were two newcomers: the Team Fortress 2: Mann vs. Machine Robot Heavy and debuting Robot Pyro. Both come with their respective weapons of choice (mini-gun and flamethrower) and appear to have as much articulation as you might normally expect to see crammed in a ThreeA figure. Robot Heavy's jaw even hinges open and closed; an unexpected but still cool feature. No release date has been announced as they're still being worked on and refined, but there's no way in heck I don't eventually pick them up. Damn my TF2 fandom ... You can stop e-mailing Ashley Wood, Halo fans: Master Chief is coming to the 1/6-scale line, and he'll be joined by Emile A239 (a.k.a. Noble 4) from Halo: Reach. No accessories were on display with Chief, and Emile was carrying a shotgun in hand at the booth that seem pretty well sculpted. Like the TF2 figures, no release date on these yet, but they should be priced around the same range as Commander Carter was (the US$200 price range). Finally, there's the Lost Planet 2 license to discuss. ThreeA's already revealed the GAH-41BSL Baylid and GTF-11 Drio Vital Suit before, but this is the first time they've been in the U.S. Again, like all the other figures, they're prototype designs pending final approval, but the detailing on these look wonderful. If not for the display cards, you might easily mistake them for something that ThreeA was putting out as an original piece, as they have that raw mechanical look and grimy, worn-down and weathered feel to them.
