Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Agito Shining Form

Kamen Rider Agito has had his share of figures. It was one of the notorious early releases in the S.H. Figuarts line, namely due to the fact it only came with the standard figure and two extra hands. Since then, the other for...

Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts Power Rangers Ninja Storm Blue and Yellow photo
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?

Find out after the jump in today's review!

S.H. MonsterArts Burning Godzilla now without flames

[Update: Earlier version of this story incorrectly labeled this as the S.H. MonsterArts release of 2014 Godzilla. It has since been edited. -Andres]  Godzilla has been a great reason for the S.H. MonsterArts line. Multip...

S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Kabuto 2.0 preview details new possibilities for line

The original S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Kabuto was released more than 5 years ago. At that time, it was a great figure and in many respects, still is. However, with 5 years come a lot of innovations. Bandai deemed it necessary...

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!

Tomopop Review: Power Rangers Legacy Power Morpher Green/White Ranger Edition photo
Tomopop Review: Power Rangers Legacy Power Morpher Green/White Ranger Edition
by Andres Cerrato

Last year, I watched as childhood was presented in one product: the Legacy Power Morpher Green/White Ranger Edition. Much like childhood, I couldn't have one. This time it wasn't due to parents who wouldn't buy me such a thing, but because it was an SDCC-exclusive item that cost more money than sense at the time. 

Flash forward to later that year and it was announced that childhood was coming again, this time as a Toys R Us exclusive release and at a reasonable price. 20 years is an awful long time to wait but now I finally have it in my hands. Find out if itlives up to my childhood in today's Tomopop Review: Legacy Power Morpher Green/White Ranger Edition!

Legacy Dragonzord closer to being reality with these pics

What I have wanted the most for the longest has been the upcoming Legacy Dragonzord. I was never able to get one as a kid and I refused to pay the nostalgia prices for one. With the announcement back at New York Comic Con, I ...

S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Shin is something new

Kamen Rider Shin doesn't look like the Kamen Riders that you're used to. He looks more like an SIC representation of some other Rider, but no, this is Shin. The result of 1990s need for grimdark and edgy, Kamen Rider Shin tri...

Bandai gets smart with the SHF MMPR Blue Ranger

The 20th Anniversary of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers has finally brought them into the S.H. Figuarts lineup. The initial releases of MMPR's Green, Red and White Rangers have proven themselves to be great releases for the line, but now it's time for the re-decos. Creating a new figure by combining two existing ones is simple enough, but is it worth it to the die-hard fan, let alone casuals?

Can the Red Ranger's new shield help it defend against such attacks? Find out in the review of SHF Armored Red Ranger following the jump!
