Tomopop Review: ArtFX+ Arkham City Batman photo
Tomopop Review: ArtFX+ Arkham City Batman
by Kristina Pino

Kotobukiya released this 1/10-scale Batman based on his appearance in the very fun Batman: Arkham City game back in late August, so this is by no means a brand-spankin'-new figure. But it's new to me and I want to share my review.

Mega Drive Megatron gets a Genesis makeover  photo
Mega Drive Megatron gets a Genesis makeover
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Everyone's favorite video game-console-turned-killer-robot Mega Drive Megatron from Takara Tomy is getting a limited makeover. Soon Megatron will be getting redesigned as a Sega Genesis and come complete with a matching mini Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge. But despite the Sega Genesis primarily being sold in North America only, this is going to be a Japanese exclusive to the Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. shop and limited to only 1000 pieces. 

It's basically the same figure, but has had the the red replaced with purple which makes me wish this 'reformated' Mega Drive had a Galvatron head to match the new colors. Oh well, maybe they'll save that for a Saturn. Pre-orders are open now until January 8, though you'll have to get this through proxy from the Japanese store. He'll be seeing release in February which happens to also be the same month Playstation Optimus Prime is coming out. Coincidence? Probably not. 

Oh, but that's not all! As traditional for many of the Autobot and Decepticon leaders, Mega Drive Megatron will be receiving a super limited Lucky Draw gold (chrome) plated lottery figure. Famitsu is reporting that anyone in Japan that buys a copy of Sega 3D Reprint Archives for Nintendo 3DS and fills out a survey between December 18, 2014 and January 31, 2015 will get a shot at one of five of these beauties. Notice that instead of Sonic he'll come with a cart for Bare Knuckle, the Japanese version of Streets of Rage. Nice, but not something any of us are likely to see in any of our lifetimes.
