Tomopop Review: Dragon in Dream 1/6 Winston Churchill

Nov 19 // Andres Cerrato
Figure Name: 1/6 British Prime Minister Winston ChurchillFigure Maker: Dragon in DreamPrice: ¥13,543Available at: HobbyLink Japan First look is at the box, featuring the man himself. The Union Jack features prominently in the background as Churchill gives as serious an expression as ever. The side panels feature him in his alternate outfit: the winter long coat, hat and cigar.  The Union Jack also features prominently on the backside of the front of the box. The front of the box is held in place by magnets, so you can easily remove it and use it as a backdrop. It's a nice feature, but you'll need a good amount of space to make use of it. With the front cover removed, you get the window treatment of the goods. Among the extras packed in are the aforementioned extra outfit, cane, two hats, cigars, pocket watch, radio microphone, victory right hand, and alternate smoking head. The first thing that needs to be examined is the likeness. Before I can even talk about the rest of the figure, is it Churchill? It's an unequivocal yes. There's no mistaking the scowl of Churchill, and it shines here. DiD's sculpting has grown by leaps and bounds in the 5 years since the 2008 Obama release. We're treated to a pretty good sculpt of Churchill, though his eyes are posed in a way that you'll always want to be looking at him from his left. As an actual figure, DiD has made a pretty stable figure. Articulation is what you'd expect with other 1/6 companies like Hot Toys and Medicom. Churchill is a better release than your usual Medicom, but still just a tad under Hot Toys. Posing here with the trusty cane and hat, Winston stands tall. From a distance, it doesn't really stand out, but you need to view the details up close in order to really appreciate this release. Can't ever say that Churchill doesn't have some nice kicks. The shoes are fully detailed, including the laces. But as you can see, Winston apparently doesn't like socks. As the pants cover, and the ankle joints being ratchet, no socks though they could have easily put some there. I will say at least that the figure has great balance and no real need for a stand. You can make out a couple of details from this shot. The body that DiD uses is their standard. In order to fill out the body size, there's a body suit underneath the clothes. As they did use their standard 1/6 body, they had to change the flesh color to make Winston accurate. While the wrist joint could be a bit better hidden, it's not too disconcerting to most 1/6 collectors. Also, check out the snazzy pocket watch. The watch actually fits in the functioning pocket and is connected via an actual metal chain. For such a small piece, I'm glad the details are put into them. As for the clothing, the buttons are not just sewn on, but do actually function with the jacket. While it can be unbuttoned and placed back, it'll take you some extra effort to close them back up. Easily my favorite accessory is the BBC Radio microphone. The only way that it's not an actual mic is that it doesn't record. It's made of heavy metal, can adjust its height via a knob on the side, and the mic can tilt up and down. It's easily the best accessory in the set and it's pretty much how it needs to be displayed. This image right here is pretty much placed here for nightmare fuel. It's the alternate head for the cigar, which is obviously meant to go in the open space. As for how to switch between heads, this is where it's a bit below other 1/6 figures. You'll need a hair dryer to warm up the neck, loosen it up,and swap in your new head. I wish it would be more of a simple process, but it works. Other accessories aren't as great as the mic or the head though. The second top hat is flocked and sits perfectly on the head. As good as the two hats are, the glasses are junk. No plastic for anything for that matter for the lenses and I could not get them to sit perfectly on his face in any way. Even with the hat holding it down, it's still not the really there. Thankfully, Churchill's glasses aren't anywhere as iconic as either of the Roosevelts, so you can feel comfortable just leaving them in the box. No, this picture isn't meant to be cheeky towards Frenchmen capturing archers (okay it is), but to feature a peek at the ring. The gold is done in an antique finish with a red stone. There is some great sculpting in that tiny ring. Here's all the accessories that you can play around with. It's the little things that make this release. The cane is made of metal, which gives it a decent weight and stability. The cigar pouch is made of leather, and the two cigars contained within can be removed. You could use those to show a pre-lit cigar or just have him actually smoking something. Churchill here is ready for action alongside Hot Toys "African-American #2" aka Obama. As his hands are open, don't expect him to be able to take arms, unless it's his cane. In closing, the figure is a victory. While the figure has its shortcomings, the ultimate goal of this figure is meant for display rather than playability. If you would consider Winston Churchill a personal hero, or you're just a history buff like myself, Dragon in Dream is a company you can turn to for historical figures. If this the first time you've thought of Winston Churchill since your 11th grade history class, this may not be the release for you. [Thank you to HobbyLink Japan for providing this sample for review!]

Tomopop Review: Funko's Michael Jackson POP! Rock

Mar 14 // Rio McCarthy
Figure Name: Michael Jackson POP! RockFigure Maker: FunkoRetail/List Price: US$9.99Available at: Big Bad Toy Store I'm going to take a cue from Brian and have you open this in a new tab while you read through the review. If you've done as you've been told, the answer to why I used butterfly fabric as the background has also been answered! Butterflies just happens to be one of my favorite of his songs from the Invincible album, so enjoy! Now back to the matter at hand, I've expressed my adoration of the POP! Vinyl line before, and once again I love these boxes. They show the POP! Vinyl version of MJ, along with a great window box so you can see that he's posed in just the same way. I love the back of the boxes most, as they went to the trouble of putting pictures of Michael in the respective outfits on each box. The pictures could have stood to be a little more flattering, but I give them the point for effort! I do admit that once you get the plastic out of the box it does look a bit ridiculous. There's so much extra plastic to the left, when you're looking at it, so that he can be seen past the images on the front of the box when it's inside. You can also see that the top pops up quite easily, but at least when it's inside the box it's tightly packaged. Let's start off with Billie Jean Michael, shall we? They did a great job recreating the outfit itself, and that can be said for all three of the figures. They could have easily went off and forgot the striking red bow tie for this one, but they didn't! I had to take a quick stop just to start at the adorable little face, or actually huge face, considering his head is so much larger than his body. I've just always really liked the POP! Vinyl style, and it carries through well with Michael. The Jheri Curl and everything else seems to be good to go! That's... sort of where the praising begins to stop though, sadly. I'll go ahead and say that this is probably the best of the three when it comes to problems, but man is that paint job distracting. It keeps going as we travel down the figure as well. The pink doesn't cover the dark underneath very well, the black travels onto its surrounding colors, and there's no help from shading or anything else to try and help differentiate from the different colors. I am glad that the sculpt does allow for the actual seams in the jacket, and the separation of the shoes from their soles, but there are seams in other places that just look sloppy. I think the Beat It figure might have to be my personal favorite of the three though. Well, at least in design. The shirt looks incredible. They did a great job of recreating the shirt that most people forget being underneath the iconic jacket. I also appreciate that they included the textured bits on the shoulders of the jacket, but those seams around the fingers just look so off. I honestly wonder if that stuff couldn't have just been sanded off before they painted it or something to help a little bit. While it may look like his shoe is just super reflective, all that white around the top of the shoe toward the ankle? Yeah, that's just a bunch of white paint slopped all around. It was supposed to be for his socks, but clearly his sock is trying to devour his loafer or something with this mess. The textured pattern I mentioned being on the shoulders does carry over to the back of the figure, which is nice. Though the zippers that are known to be all over the jacket? Yeah, don't expect anything more than silver lines roughly put in the areas that the zippers were supposed to be. I wouldn't have minded this so badly if they had been a little more carefully done instead of being slapped in the seams of the jacket in some parts. Last, but not least we finally come to the Smooth Criminal figure. I've probably gushed about how the long version of the short film, originally seen in Moonwalker, is one of my favorite short films of all time. (Though nothing will ever beat Michael Jackson's Ghosts for me.) That still lives on to this day, and I'm always excited to see it get some recognition. The pose is fantastic, and straight out of the film/live performance. Though this is one of the worst figures in terms of quality. The mold was all kinds of messed up when it came to his hand that's near his chest. It's incredibly rough, there are bits of paint flat out missing from where it was messed up, and there are paint issues going on with the sleeves where the blue shirt is underneath. Not to mention that nice black blob on his spats from where they were painting the shoes. One of the most positive things about this figure is that his leg is actually slightly lifted up, just like it would be if he were performing this section of the dance. In fact, the poses for all three are incredible, and can be found in their respective short films, but I just beg for a little more quality control on the paint and pre-paint work. I mean, I understand that these are only $10 figures, but... come on now. Just for the heck of it I thought I'd just show you the underneath of their feet. That's where the copyright info is hidden, as well as the rest of the ugly paint (or lack there of). Honestly, from afar? These really aren't that bad. In fact, if you're a fan of Michael Jackson I'd definitely tell you to buy them regardless of quality, but I wanted to make a point. I really do wish, that regardless of retail price, companies would look after their quality control just a little more. I could have dealt with the lack of paint problem, much better than just random blobs of the wrong color dropped about. As much as I've whined and complained about their issues, I am actually truly happy I own them, and hope that they make more! I just hope there's a little more care taken next time around. I had a lot of paint issues with several of the Disney POP! Vinyls I bought in the past as well. If you want these little guys in your collection you can head over to Big Bad Toy Store (which is where I ordered mine) or if you're lucky and have a good store around close, you can probably find them in your town! As a great man once said, "Don't stop 'til you get enough!"

Tomopop Review: Michael Jackson B&W Smooth Criminal Figure

Jun 02 // Rio McCarthy
 Like my previous review on Dive's HIStory MJ statue, this figure also has two versions. There is the black and white monochrome version like I bought, or there was also a color version of the same figure. I was too late in getting my order in for the color version, so it got back-ordered, but I decided that was probably for the best because something really drew me to the black and white version. The box itself is pretty neat actually. It's a simple window box, in which the entire thing is made of a clear plastic, but it has Smooth Criminal-related graphics all over it. It has brick walls like Club 30s does in the Moonwalker film, and has a drawn image of part of the Smooth Criminal dance as it would have been seen by the kids watching from outside the window in the movie.  Again, I love it when companies package their figures in plastic bags within their box packaging. I really hate seeing my figures get scratched up for silly reasons just because they move around a bit when they're being shipped.  One of the first things I noticed was how great the face was done on this figure, as it really looks like a cartoony version of Mike doing his thing. A lot can go wrong when you try to do this to someone, but I love how this one turned out, especially the eyes.  As you can see by the foot placement, it depicts him in the middle of his famous Moonwalk and does so quite well. Another of my favorite parts is just how adorable the little spats look on his shoes. One of my favorite parts of this outfit was the spats, so I'm glad to see they look so great on the figure.  The face looks great no matter what angle you look at it from, which I enjoy because I've had a few figures that really disappointed me in that they were only viewable from one direction without looking weird. Dive really does well with attention to detail, as all of the parts of the costume are here and look just like they should. Even the tape he wore on his fingers on his right hand are there. The only small issue with the figure, even though it's hard to see in photos, is that there is a bit of excess glue from when they put him on the base under his right shoe. When on display it's not terribly noticeable; it's more just a thing I noticed while taking the photos and looking at it up close.  Speaking of the base, this one is also adorned with his moniker of the King of Pop, as well as his name and logo. It's a simple black plastic base, and does well at its purpose. The only thing I'm a bit worried is about is him eventually getting more of a lean than he already has due to the positioning, but only time will tell on that.  As you've read, this figure is pretty much the bee's knees, if I do so say so myself, and does a remarkable job at pulling off a piece of one of my favorite videos. If there's some way you've never seen the Smooth Criminal video in its entirety, as it was originally shown during Moonwalker, please take some time to check it out here. It remains one of my favorite choreographed pieces of all time, let alone one of my top short films/music videos of all time. Sadly, this figure is currently back-ordered, but you can still place your order with AmiAmi for either the monochrome version, or the color version and they'll try to get one for you. From the top of his fedora, to the bottom of the base, he measures about 6 1/2 inches tall, so he's the perfect size to fit in any collection. He'll cost you ¥3,561 for either version, and I would suggest him for any fellow MJ fans out there. I can definitely say I'm thoroughly happy about my purchase, and I hope you will be too!

Tomopop Review: Michael Jackson HIStory Gold Statue

May 31 // Rio McCarthy
 First off, there are two different versions of this statue, one being the gold version you see here and the other being a grey version. The original statues placed in Europe were the color of the grey version, but it also has gold sections that were not seen on the original pieces. Since the original piece was done as all one color, I decided to purchase the gold one.As you can see in the box above, he sits in a window box that's adorned with the American flag. It has a very nice quote on the side that says, "Michael Jackson meant different things to different people. To some he was just an entertainer, but to others he was a hero. Michael changed popular music and pop culture forever and his vocal style and sound continues to influence many entertainers today." It goes on to say, "This statue represents Michael as a hero and is one of the most memorable images of him. Michael Jackson is one of the greatest icons of our time and will never be forgotten."  After you get him out of his plastic home that was inside the box, both the statue and its base come in separate clear plastic bags. I'm glad it was done this way, as it really helped keep either piece from getting scratched and there were no casualities in the bunch.  The front of the base sports his King of Pop moniker while being simple and to the point. There are no pegs or anything on the base for the figure to stand on, but it was designed well, as I've never had any problems with him falling off - unless of course you were to knock him off yourself. The underneath side of the base shows his name and logo, as well as information on who created it and has the license. The toy was manufactured by Dive, who I was originally pretty sketchy on given some of their early MJ-related goods, but they've now created some of my favorite pieces lately, so they're definitely worth giving a shot.  As you could expect, my room is a Michael Jackson paradise, and I have posters of him all over the place. I stood him in front of one of my Billie Jean performance posters to help him feel at home. Although he looks rather orange in a couple of the photos, I can assure you that is only because of my interior lighting.  As you can see, this is the normal color of the figure when it's not being tainted by my inside lights. The details on the figure are fantastic, and there are several I'll point out individually. The outfit that was used in the statues is the one he wore while performing Jam on the Dangerous tour, and it happens to be one of my favorite jackets of his.   All the details are there - the brace on the right arm, the belt, and the sashes across the chest. Of course, you can see the bottom part of the gold leotard he wore over his pants during the Dangerous tour as well coming out from underneath the jacket.   All the details were done so well I can't even bring it all into words. You can see on the right side that his classic armband is there, and the sculpting for the badges on his jacket are phenomenal as well.  The back side is just as detailed as the front. Continuing from the front of the jacket, the sashes on the back look just as they did on the real deal. I've been waiting to own a figure of this since I was a little kid. I'm so happy that I can now say that I do, and that I'm lucky enough to have it sit alongside my other MJ figures in my collection.  The face is just as beautifully sculpted as it was in the original, and his hair was done phenomenally. As you can see, there are a couple seams here and there in parts of the figure, but they're far from distracting. The statue is fantastic looking, no matter what angle you glance at it. Obviously, I would suggest it to anyone who is a fan of the King of Pop, as I'm so delighted with it I can't put it all into words. The whole piece stands about 10 inches tall, and makes for a fantastic trophy to sit on your desk. Both the gold version and the grey version are still on sale through AmiAmi, but unfortunately, they're currently back-ordered. If you can get a hold of one, they'll cost you around ¥4,000 each, which I was glad to pay for something I'd be wanting for so long. If you're an MJ fan, this statue's definitely for you!
