Under the Radar: Soul of Chogokin General Franky

All Franky wants is to become the ultimate cyborg/robot. I mean, he sure is a great shipwright and he's one of the best out there. However, let's be honest: his robotic improvements show that he wants to become one with the m...

Tomopop Review: Bandai's Chogokin Saber
by Scarecroodle

It's no secret that Saber has seen a lot of merchandise in recent years. Some would even consider her a serious contender for the title of most overproduced Eastern character. Despite that, the armored version of Saber has only seen a handful of releases in a (non-SD) articulated format. Bandai's Chogokin Saber may not be the first such figure, but it seems to hold its own against previous releases.

More details in the full review after the jump.

Tomopop Review: Bandai's Chogokin RAcaseal
by Rio McCarthy

I will start out by saying, "Man, I wish I had gotten to play more Phantasy Star Online." This is a game that I really dug the designs for, but sadly got very little time with either it, or the current version of PSO2. However, even though I didn't play much of it, I knew I love the RAcaseal design.

For today's review, we have the lovely RAcaseal Chogokin from Bandai. Could this be one that won me over on poseable figures? Let's find out!
