As dark as Attack on Titan can be at times, it does have its fair share of zany moments. Some of my favorite ones come from Hange Zoe, the overzealous Titan enthusiast. She's one of the few characters who don't fear Titans - ... read
Nothing new for this arrow nerd, he loves the future. Archer has 'tude. And for good reason; the guy has seen some terrible things. Also done some things of which he's not entirely proud. And this may or may not turn out to be one of those things. The Real Action Heroes line has... read feature
I have to give Be@rbricks credit; they know how to make scale work. What started as a kinda cute offshoot of Medicom's Kubricks didn't waste much time coming into their own. They haven't done a whole lot to shake up their aes... read
I'm not the biggest fan of the Fate franchise, but Rin has a nice enough design where I've generally liked the figures that get made of her. Medicom Toy is jumping on that bandwagon with this RAH version, which should be a tr... read

Medicom's annual Toy Exhibition opened today, and as ever for the company Real Action Heroes were front and centre. There was a good mix of announced, released and brand new stuff on show, with a few first glimpses to hand.
This month's scans had a pair of Wonder Festival exclusives from Medicom Toy's RAH line: Annie Leonhart and Mami Tomoe. Annie certainly looks cool and collected. Although she comes with two face plates, it's difficult to tell... read
Last year, Hasbro finally gave in and made Star Wars figures in the 6" scale. The move was well received, but the figures haven't lived up to everyone's wild expectations about what a 2.25-inch increase could do. Meanwhile, M... read
Kick-Ass probably isn't in the public consciousness right now so I find it a bit odd that Medicom would be releasing another RAH Hit Girl. The first Hit Girl was based on her Kick-Ass 2 look, where the character is also a bit... read
Be@rbrick Optimus Prime adds to his legacy of strange alt modes Calling a Transformer a brick is usually used as an insult. It means the figure has a simple transformation and limited articulation. Medicom and Takara Tomy's new Be@rbrick Optimus Prime may have brick in the name, but it's ... read feature

The Medicom Toy Blog gave me a nice little gallery to lust over this week, and of course it stars Ms. Ryuko Matoi from Kill la Kill. I'm so excited to get my hands on the Real Action Heroes Ryuko, but even more so after seein... read
Medicom looking for a clean sweep of your money Medicom is spoiling us with Real Action Heroes recently. Rio took a look at the lovely Ryuko Matoi earlier today, so it's only fair I level the battle of the sexes by presenting this equally stunning rendition of Levi from At... read feature

It's a wonder what happens when a company decides to make figures of a popular, well-received franchise. While Medicom has released a lot of figures in its Real Action Heroes line, they weren't always what the mass market gra... read
Medicom has released some images of its upcoming Real Action Heroes Levi (Attack on Titan). The only problem is, well, they're kind of limited... as in only being head shots. But hey, that's one nice-looking head, right?
A little earlier this month, Medicom Toy revealed that they'd be starting up a new range of high-end static PVC figures dubbed 'Perfect Posing Products', with Soul Eater's Maka Albarn the first entrant into the line. Now on C... read
