Bluefin lists out its exclusives for SDCC next week

Jun 30 // Andres Cerrato
For gunpla, we will have three exclusive models that were previously only available at events in Asia. The three kits are all in 1/144 scale and are the HGUC Zeta Plus Test Type Image Color (Amuro's) for $25.00, the RG Gundam Exia Extra Finish Version for $48.00, and the HGBF Try Burning Gundam PP Clear Version for $22.00. Perhaps the biggest draw will be the S.H. Figuarts Goku Frieza Saga version. It's the Goku you've always wanted, with an actual belt and his symbols. It's almost like the standard Goku release, just now with an extra face and gi symbols! This limited edition of Goku will be available for $45.00 alongside an 18" statue of Goku from X-Plus for $65.00. Also available will be several Action Vinyls from The Loyal Subjects. There will be a set of black/white battle damaged Ninja Turtles, a crystal MMPR Pink Ranger, and a Transformers Construction set. There's one last group of releases for comic and movie fans. Iron Man will have two items, an Iron Man MkIII Magnetic Floating figure with a chrome paint job for $139.99 and a 1/12 Shotgun Iron Man Mark XL for $160.00. In case you're wondering about those prices, they're fully poseable with LEDs throughout. If you'd like another billionaire who fights crime, on hand will be Hero Cross' Hybrid Metal Figuration Batman for $80.00. Oh, there's also an S.H. Figuarts Nise (imposter) Sailor Moon, too. She looks mean and I guess that's kinda cool.  Check out the gallery for what you can buy from Bluefin this San Diego Comic Con.

Tomopop Review: Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 42 + Hall of Armor

May 19 // Andres Cerrato
Figure Name: Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 42 Hero's Edition + Hall of Armor SetFigure Maker: Good Smile CompanyFigure Price: ¥4,976Available At: HobbyLink Japan  Ah yes, the box. Things are a bit different this time as the typical Nendoroid window box now just has a close-up of Nendo's face. It also lets you know that this is the Hero's edition, which means it comes with the Hall of Armor. But let's actually open this up and see the goods. This really isn't your average box, it's got a flap! Now it looks like the traditional Nendo box. See that pose on the front? Hah! Good luck making that happen again. What is cool though is that on the inside of the flap is a holographic foil image of all the armors from the movie. It's great on collectible trading card games, but not necessarily for photography. Onto the figure! It's Iron Man Mark 42 and he's adorable. What really stands out to me is the gold paint job. I'll be honest here, I actually hate the design of 42; it was just way too much gold for me. In this new, deformed version, it adds to it. I must also say that the paint job is superb. The gold reminds me of a faded, Vegas Gold tone, which I really like for this armor. Often times, the gold is too strong, but it's done very well here. Finally, that candy red is beautiful. When I can see myself in the paint, it's a job to be admired by the onlook of my glorious face. What's special about this release is that it's a Super Poseable Nendoroid. There is the standard articulation in the head, but the arms and legs feature joints in the elbows and knees. There are also bicep swivels as well, but movement is a bit limited due to the shoulders. You won't be able to cross arms, but you'll get the poses you need out of the arms. Legs will move, but they are there just to pose the way you want. You won't be able to get him to stand on his own, hence the provided stand. You'll be needing it. Iron Man wasn't meant to stand, but take to the skies. What drew me to the Nendo are the effect parts. You get two sets of repulsor blasts, one set for flight and one for attacks. You also get a separate set of hands to differentiate between the two; an open and closed palm. I haven't bought a Nendoroid in some time, so this is my first experience with the new stand. I must say, I really prefer these too the old ones. My other Nendos constantly fall over, so actually being able to not have it do that is simply fantastic. I also love the fact I can display Iron Man in his flying pose. Thanks to the joint in the neck, I can have him look up. Unfortunately, the stand does get in the way of that as it plugs into his back. The classic Iron Man kneel down pose is featured on the box, but best of luck trying to get it in that position. Included in the package is an extra fixed-pose left leg for the purpose of this pose, but this was the best I could get. However, with all of the other things that come with this package, this would be the last pose I'd have it in. This is why I wanted this. I loved the idea of having my own Hall of Armor, but having them as tiny Nendos is even better. They are fixed in, so don't try to take them out. There isn't too much detail on them, but it's not really that necessary. Also, GSC, would it kill you to make a Nendo Petit series of armors? As a blind-boxed series, this would make a killing. Seriously, make this already. There is a man underneath that mask, a tired, beaten man. As you can see, you can show the face of Tony Stark beneath the mask. I would show you other faces, but the older Nendoroids I have aren't compatible with the new faces. I wish I could have a Zetsubou or Maritan in the armor, but that's not possible anymore. Also, the mask will stay on the top of the helmet thanks to the power of magentism, so take that, scientists. Tony's face really captures the mood of Iron Man 3. Those eyes have seen hell and have more bags than a Royal Family vacation. I would like to have had some more faces, but that'd just make this a more expensive purchase than I'd be willing to partake in. All things said, I like the guy. GSC did a great job with the paint, not to mention the keystone of this release, the Hall of Armor. Iron Man could lead to see great scenes with newer Nendos, unfortunately I couldn't have that fun right now. I certainly give it my recommendation, now if only could do that damned kneeling pose. [Thanks to Hobby Link Japan for providing this sample for review!]
