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.

Scarecroodle's massive EXPLOSION of AWESOME recap

Oct 08 // Scarecroodle
The first (and perhaps most) explosively awesome item is Bandai's Tamashii Effect Explosion, which comes in both a fiery "Red Ver." as well as a boring "Gray Ver." which looks like all smoke and no fire. The set comes with three explosion parts which can be combined into one larger explosion. If nothing else, you might have a total blast. These sets can be pre-ordered for around US$23 each. [ Pre-order Red ver. at Entertainment Earth | HobbyLink Japan ] [ Pre-order Gray ver. at Entertainment Earth | HobbyLink Japan ] In other very exciting news, Bluefin has released images of its currently available for pre-order S.H. MonsterArts Gamera (1996). Gamera has long been among my favorite Kaiju but, up until this point, I had to satisfy myself with Kaiyodo's Revoltech version which, quite frankly, just wasn't enough. Given that it's based on the 1996 version (Gamera: Guardian of the Universe or Gamera 2: Attack of the Legion?), Gamera will lack his "rocket shell" display options (which I'm *pretty* sure he didn't have in Guardian of the Universe but it's been forever). However, he'll have the usual breath attack and features an opening chest to reveal his core. The only downside is that he's US$81, so I'll have to see what my budget looks like by that point. [ Pre-order at HobbyLink Japan | Entertainment Earth ] For the Bishoujo crowd, Kotobukiya released a teaser image for its upcoming She-Hulk last week. After realizing that we were a few days late on it, I figured we could maybe just float things until Kotobukiya revealed the whole thing... but apparently they're holding off until NYCC. So for everybody who can't wait until, well, tomorrow, here's a teaser. I will say that it's certainly one very fine arm. Pre-orders also recently opened for Bandai's S.H. Figuarts Master Asia and the Master Gundam. Apparently Master Asia was shown some years ago but never released so he's been a long time coming. Given that G Gundam ranks among my favorites (and is somewhat ostracized among purists), I'm always happy to see it receive more merchandise... even if Master Asia was one of my least favorite characters. Master Asia can be pre-ordered for US$39 while the Master Gundam will run you US$44. [ Pre-order Master Asia | Master Gundam at Entertainment Earth ] And finally we have the Kaiju cutie, Sunrise's Ultra Monster Girl Gomora-chan. She's an anthropomorphic version of Gomora (not to be confused with Gamera! ...although now I kinda want to see Gamera receive the same treatment) from the Ultraman franchise. Weird? Yes. Very weird? Still yes. However, the figure kind of looks like a cosplayer in half of a monster suit

Tomopop Review: Alpha x Omega's Yzak Jule

May 24 // Andres Cerrato
Figure Name: Alpha x Omega 1/7-scale Yzak JuleFigure Manufacturer: MegahousePrice: ¥6,750Available At: HobbyLink Japan  Yes, it's a box. Just like all of the other Gundam SEED figures released by Megahouse over the last year, the box for Yzak features a window, showing off the figure as well as all of the alternate pose pieces, including bandaged head and alternate right arm. The base is rather unremarkable, having a violet hue. Just like Athrun's and Lacus' base, it features his name and the Z.A.F.T. logo. Also pegs. Now that Yzak is free from the plastic prison, let's take a look at what Megahouse has done here. Yzak's pose is very similar to Athrun's, with the arm stretched out along with the jacket flapping with an imaginary breeze. The pose itself is taken from the first opening, so I'm okay with it being similar to Athrun's. There is an alternate head and arm after all. From the back, we see that the uniform is pretty tight in places. The belt really holds that jacket on and Megahouse has done a pretty nice job of showing the wrinkles and creases both at the waist and the boots.You also get an outline of that backside, which I imagine is great for that segment of collectors out there. Here's a better look at the belt and its snugness. Okay, what I actually want you to do is look directly below his belt, then go to your right and look at those appendages. I don't know if Coordinators are supposed to have extremely long finger digits, but Yzak does here. It's nothing really crazy, but they're just really long fingers. Oddly long. At least they're well-manicured, as Megahouse gave his fingernails a hint of gloss. Nice nails on even longer fingers. I don't know why, but they just could not nail the Z.A.F.T. logo for the arm. I know it's detailed, but they were able to do it on the original run of Gundam SEED figures more than 10 years ago. It was done the same way for Athrun, I was just hoping for something better. Also, if you note, the paint at the top of the collar is a bit splotchy. This Yzak is a bit sloppy, but it's something that is only observed during close inspection. Let's talk about what they did get right, his head. They absolutely nailed Yzak's expression. The cocky smile is captured perfectly in this piece. Also, I cannot say enough about the hair. Each of the strands are nicely trimmed, and there's no blotches or bubbles of paint at the ends.  Did I say they got his head right? I meant heads. My favorite of the two, as great as cocky Yzak is, is the scarred and bandaged head. The hair is nicely mixed in with the bandages and the face is once again done perfectly. The scar is done right and adds character to the figure. Also pictured here is the alternate arm, which of course features Yzak once more with giant fingers. See why I prefer the scarred face? It's just that more dynamic and we all have our imperfections caused by being shot by a heavily-genetically modified soldier because you had just shot a shuttle full of civilians. Just the little things.  Why reach out the future when I can just remember and hold in the pain, right? Let's take a look back at the past. The Yzak figure on the left was released in 2006 during the run of Gundam SEED Destiny. What a difference eight years makes. This really shows how far the industry has come over these last years. Yikes. Time has not been kind. I remember asking when the new SEED figures were announced, "Why? They got figures years ago." Yeah, this is the reason why.  Here's Yzak with the aforementioned Athrun. A couple of differences to note here. One, Yzak has a much better tailor than Athrun. While his are tight, it's not the child's medium for Athrun. Two, it's nowhere near as windy out for Yzak. One other note: Athrun's head is able to move around whereas Yzak's is fixed in place. It doesn't really make that much of a difference, but just worth noting here.  With the gang all here, Yzak stands out the most from the boys. I liked Yzak most out of the cast anyway and I'm glad that he got a new figure. Time makes you think a lot of things were better than they were. It's a shame that we probably won't get the other two Z.A.F.T. pilots, Dearka and Nicol. With what will be in most likelihood the final figure in the line, it does have its faults that could have been avoided. However, it is still a rather good piece to add to the collection, especially if you're a fan of Yzak which will allow you to look past those minor flaws. After all, it's not like the guy has a giant scar going down his face. [Thanks to HobbyLink Japan for providing this sample for review!]

Tomopop Review: Robot Damashii Wing Gundam

Apr 14 // Andres Cerrato
Figure Name: Robot Damashii Wing GundamFigure Manufacturer: Bandai Tamashii NationsRetail Price: USD $49.99Available At: Amazon | Big Bad Toy Store | Entertainment Earth Hooray! It's a box telling and showing us what's inside. As you notice, the Gundam is visible through the clear plastic, but the Wing is shown in its Bird Mode, indicating that this figure can transform. How? Well, the figure's inside so let's just get it out. Back when the first Gundam Wing figures hit the U.S. market, two versions were made, presented in either gold or yellow trim. As for the Robot Damashii, the main yellows have remained yellow while only the shoulder armor markers have the metallic gold to them.  As for balance, there really isn't any issue. While the large wings may have lead to some having concerns, I haven't encountered any problems with getting a good pose. Don't worry and stand him as you need to. The main weapon of the Wing Gundam is the buster rifle. What is nice is that the rifle is done in different colors. The energy containers and nuzzle of the rifle are done in gunmetal while the rest is the standard dull gray. Only problem is that the seam line down the middle of the rifle is off-putting. What might have some worried is how the figure holds the rifle itself. In my time with the figure, I've yet to find it sagging down or wearing down the shoulder or elbow joints' strength. This is more to the actual suit design, as the talon on the forearms helps hold the rifle in place. It's nice to have the rifle in there and not falling off. My favorite part of this figure though is the shield. Just as in the show, the shield can open up to reveal the lone beam saber. The shield itself can be moved in different positions about the arm thanks to the piece connecting the forearm. It's been a problem for some Gundam figures in the past, but it's largely alleviated due to the newer RDs including it. However, let's get to the sabers. Yes, plural. While there is only one beam saber, you have your choice of two effect parts for the beam. You can either display it as above, with the energy coming off the beam as it swings down. Or you can just have the standard, normal straight-as-an-arrow beam saber. Yes, I prefer the energy effect saber much more. Definitely the energy effect. Ah yes, Bird Mode, the transforming aspect of this Robot Damashii. Getting it to this state is a tad complicated. While the transformation was relatively simple in the show, for a figure, there's just one more step, namely a parts swap. As you'll note here, the Tamashii Stage connects to the torso via a swapped in part. Other than that, it's simple. Clip rifle to shield, move wings to side, rotate torso, add shield/rifle to back and you have Bird Mode.  While Bird Mode isn't all that impressive to me from a design standpoint, the Robot Damashii does it better than the previous Master Grade, HGAC, or old MSiA did it. Perhaps the coolest accessory added in to the package was the alternate head, featuring half of it blown off. If you're wondering where this comes from, it was a shot during the first opening where the Tallgeese had made the damaging blow. Unfortunately, I don't have a Tallgeese, so this unbelievably menacing Leo will have to do. Taking it all in, the Robot Damashii Wing Gundam is the figure you wished you would of had back when it was airing on Toonami. It fits into the standard that Robot Damashii has established, and if you like them already, you'll like this. Wing is what started me down this path and this will go nicely in that collection. [Thank you to Bluefin Distribution for providing this sample for review!]
