Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts MMPR Green and Red Ranger
by Vanessa Cubillo

If you asked any person in their 20s which season of the Power Rangers was the best, they would answer right away, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. At least, I know that's what my answer would be! So it is with this love of nostalgia, that Bandai has released Mighty Morphin Power Ranger figures in their S.H. Figuarts line.

Now, they've released two of the most popular Power Rangers; the Green Ranger and the Red Ranger. Both Rangers were leaders in their own right, so when they were announced, fans were happy. The Green Ranger was the first to get a release in July, and the Red Ranger soon followed in August.

So do these Power Rangers live up to the hype, or were they better off staying in the 1990s?

Sailor Mercury loads up a gallery on AmiAmi's blog photo
Sailor Mercury loads up a gallery on AmiAmi's blog
by Rio McCarthy

Over on the AmiAmi Blog they've put up a gallery dedicated to the brainiac, Sailor Mercury. I never was Mercury's biggest fan, but the more of the Figuarts I see, the more I'm excited for it.  I have it pre-ordered regardless, but I actually really like the way the Mercury Goggle and supercomputer look on her.

She has several different facial expressions, all making actual differences in how she appears, which is a plus to me. A lot of times I just shrug off certain facial expressions because they don't change much, but all of these look great in my opinion. There are also a couple teaser shots of Sailor Mars, as they'll be doing a gallery of her as well before long I would imagine, and you'll get to see the silhouettes of Venus and Jupiter, which we've already seen sculpts of. Jump into the gallery to see what Sailor Mercury's been up to!
