Real Steel was one of those big Hollywood movies that a lot people seem to pretend not to like for some reason, but when a movie takes home more than double its budget at the box office that kinda speaks for itself. Another sign that Real Steel was a hit is a certain toy company still making figures from the movie. These run for over US$300 each, and when 3A puts an exclusive version on their official Bambaland store it sells out in minutes - That's the kind of dedication Real Steel gets from its fans.
I loved Real Steel, I love 3A, and I love big robot figures so I couldn't wait to review this massive bot. What I didn't love was how many things broke on the super expensive robot figure. Is it beyond repair? Is it salvageable? Read on to find out!
[UPDATE: Bluefin Tamashii Nations has uploaded some photos. Check out the gallery.]

Hello and welcome back to another week of Tomopop LinkUP! It's been pretty crazy this past week, what with everyone trying to extend Black Friday and Cyber Monday into more than just a single day. If you looked around there were some good figure deals to be had, though I can't say I found much of interest at major retailers. Seemed like this year the best deals were online. Or maybe that's the same as every year and I'm just so used to buying stuff online that I don't notice anymore. Well, whatever the case, there were some good stuff out there.
This week on LinkUP we've got an unintentionally large number of Nendoroids to talk about alongside some designer figures, prototypes, bots, another Kickstarter, and some superheroes.
Funko's new DC Comics and Star Wars Wacky Wisecrack bobbleheads are currently available for pre-order.

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's Thanksgiving Day in the States and if you're anything like me you're probably bursting with great food and looking forward to a long tryptophan-induced nap. But while others were slaving over a hot stove I've been busy stuffing this week's LinkUP with all sorts of great stuff guaranteed not to put you to sleep!
This week we've got Japanese Happy Meal toys, plush Christmas ornaments, lots of handmade stuff, several teasers, and more. It's all gravy!
Released in 2012, Prometheus was one of those movies that had fans down the middle. It definitely generated a lot of buzz, but I can’t say that most of that was a positive. Designed as a prequel to the Alien series, Prometheus introduced new characters to explain the mythology of the world Ridley Scott created.
NECA has taken this license and has so far released three series of figures from the movie. Series 2 features figures of David 8 and the Deacon. Does NECA’s skill and attention to detail do these figures justice?
Are they worthy enough to stand with the other Alien figures that have come out in the past? Or will these figures be just like the movie, a mix between good and bad? Let’s start unboxing under the cut.
Remember that custom Bill figure that businessdog2000 made? He's just shown off another one, this being a 1/6-scale figure of Kruger from Elysium. Like Bill, you've got plenty of articulation here, along with Kruger's sword a...
Within Universal Studio's catalog of monster films, there are a handful that have seemingly withstood the test of time and have contributed greatly to (or outright provided) the popular image of that particular monster. The Phantom of the Opera (1925/1929), despite its fame, seems to miss that mark presumably because it's a silent film (making it less popular) but also because the excellent stage adaptations have crafted a more enduring version. That said, The Phantom of the Opera (1925/1929) still ranks among Universal Studio's popular monster movies and has seen a plethora of merchandise over the years, most recently in the form of a Diamond Select figure and the Retro Cloth figure that we'll be taking a look at today.
Diamond Select Toys has done some absolutely wonderful things with its Mego-inspired Retro Cloth line. The line manages to capture charm of the original type of figures while providing a nicer quality, more durable item. As such, the Retro Cloth Phantom of the Opera is something far too nice to keep behind the scenes.
Fellow Disney Infinity players, it's time to get poor again! On November 22nd, Disney released the Wreck-It Ralph figure at Walmart, and the Rapunzel figure at Best Buy; both for US$12.99. On November 24th, at Target, Vanello...
