Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts Power Rangers Ninja Storm Blue and Yellow by Andres Cerrato
I mentioned it last time, but Ninja Storm was the series that got me re-interested in Power Rangers. I really liked the S.H. Figuarts Red Wind Ranger, so I figured that I should probably complete the team with Blue and Yellow. Thankfully, it's rather easy to do since they were released in a two pack. Now that the Wind School has all of its members, have the two new SHFs received their diplomas and are ready for release?
I've had a lot of fun with the recent Robot Damashii I've acquired. The Leo Flight Type is the grunt I've always loved, and Deathscythe Hell has become one of my go-to figures. Cut to the latest entry, the Wing Gundam, the first Gundam many of us saw. With the Robot Damashii line wrapping up its focus on Gundam Wing, the titular mecha has finally gotten its release.
Does the Robot Damashii Wing Gundam ignite those lost feelings when we first saw it or is it just another beat in the endless waltz. Find out in today's review after the jump!
Game of Thrones has proven to be something of a phenomenon. Starting off as a popular book series that appealed more to a geeky fringe, the franchise found mainstream popularity as a show on HBO... although it hadn't really received a ton of merchandise until Funko (sometimes called The Walletslayer) stepped in with a line of Pop!s, 6-inch Legacy figures, and Mystery Minis.
Of these offerings, the Mystery Minis might be the most endearing. These stylized roughly 2.5-inch figures have a certain charm to them and the dragons might be the most charming of the bunch. Today we'll be taking a closer look at Rhaegal, Daenerys' green dragon, from series one.
CS Moore Studio might be more known for some of their comic book-themed statues and the lifelike detail sculpted into them (especially the women of comic book-dom), but who's to say they can't try something a little different? That's where the Little Minxies line comes into play, featuring a more cartoon-like look for the ladies it features. One of those is Joseph Michael Linsner's Sinful Suzi, who seems like an apt fit for the theme of the line.
So how does the first Little Minxie stack up? Well, if you come on after the jump, you'll find out!
Let's not beat around the proverbial bush; I was dying to have Hashtag Collectibles' Blobfish plush in my life. I posted about it when ThinkGeek first listed it. It was my DO WANT choice for March. When I went to sleep, little baby blobfishes escorted me off to dreamland. Okay, maybe not the last one but you get the point; I badly wanted a blobfish plush. And thanks to the press relations fairies over at ThinkGeek, one of them found its way to my home.
Let's take a look at this squishy fellow, shall we?
Funko easily ranks among the top makers of blind-boxed collectibles, and it's easy to see why with exciting entries such as the Marvel Mystery Minis series. This time around Funko has released a regular version of the series (which can be found at all the usual retailers) as well as a Hot Topic exclusive version.
Today we'll be taking a closer look at one of the figures you might find in a box (if you're REALLY lucky, that is!), the ultra-rare Loki with staff.
Shelly Rodriguez, also known as inki-Jinx, is known for her whimsical, typically aquatic-themed, designs. Her colorful critters have appeared on clothing, jewelry, and even Nintendo 3DS cases. Plushes had to be included, right? Correct! And I was lucky enough to have the chance to review both her Crabapple and Gummy Ika plushes.
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers defined the childhoods of most of those born in the mid-1980s. Compared to the toys of the past, it really isn't fair to compare them to what we've already seen from Tamashii Nations in their release of S.H. Figuarts lineup of MMPR figures (Red and Green | Armored Red | White). The newest entry to the line is the Black Ranger, whose powers were shared by both Zack and Adam.
Find out why this latest release is no frog in today's review of the S.H. Figuarts MMPR Black Ranger!
Now, before everyone gets up in arms, this is not intended as a judgement call on those who *do* like them. That's cool! But personally, they've always made me a little uncomfortable, even though we get exposed to an awful lot of NSFW stuff in this job. That's not to say that I can't appreciate a good figure when one shows up though. And from the moment we first saw Kotobukiya's bikini clad Mikoto Misaka (from A Certain Scientific Railgun) I thought she looked fantastic. So what better way to dip a toe into the world of sporty ladies not wearing much?
Crowded Coop's Imps and Monsters line, created by Justin Hillgrove, was one that I had spotted several times in crowded convention halls and online shops, but never really had a chance to get a good look at. The quirky beasts looked playful and fun, but that was about all I knew. Thankfully, I recently had the chance to examine one of the plushes, up close and personal. The toy in question was named Clarence, and I could not have been happier with my good fortune. How happy? Let me count the ways (read on and you can count along with me)!
