Review: Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger DX Kojishi Voyager

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, toku, Toys, Uncategorized
Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger's DX toy line has been pretty hit-and-miss as a whole, but it ends really strong with Kojishi Voyager, aka Caesar. Caesar is a small chibi-like lion toy, similar to Mini-Tyra from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, but instead of combining with a weapon, he combines with a fellow Voyager mech. On its own, I like this little guy, but the real fun begins when you add Shishi Voyager to the mix. Combining the two Voyagers together makes Super Shishi Voyager, my favorite form. This is an amazing form, changing the look of Shishi Voyager from a spaceship with a lion head into a full-fledged lion mecha. The size and silhouette of this thing is great, though I can see fans being bummed out by the lack of articulation. Overall, I think, combined, this is the best Voyager of the wh...

Review: Kamen Rider Build DX Legend Rider Full Bottle Sets

Kamen Rider, Reviews, toku, Toys, Uncategorized
With any gimmick-heavy Kamen Rider series comes the "Legend Rider" merchandise. Basically, this means the fans can get a taste of some of the older Kamen Riders in their new driver toy. Kamen Rider Build, however, does something very clever with its Legend Rider gimmick that very few seasons can match. Here we have the Ex-aid Full Bottle set and the W Full Bottle set. Ex-Aid is broken up in to the DX Doctor Full Bottle and the DX Game Full Bottle, while W is broken up into the DX Tantei (Detective) and DX USB Memory Full Bottles. This is awesome as it both encapsulates the core of Build's gimmick, being organic and inorganic objects coming together, and the main themes of the individual series. Overall, these are great for any Kamen Rider Ex-Aid or Kamen Rider W fans. It's great to remin...

Ultraman Fusion Fight: Why Settle For 10 Form Changes When You Can Have 10,000?

In Ultraman Fusion Fight, the towering monsters of the Ultra Series multiverse and the giant heroes who defend against them are swept up in a battle for supremacy. As modern Ultraman features characters whose strange and varied forms are combined and manipulated into new "fusions", this arcade-style Carddass game capitalizes on that feature to the Nth degree, constantly updating with newer and more bizarre meldings of popular figures from their decades-spanning franchise. Including those of 2017's Ultraman Geed and 2016's Ultraman Orb. If the name Carddass makes you think of aliens from Star Trek rather than the mechanics of the game, fret not. As far back as 1988, toy behemoth Bandai has consistently released new DataCarddass collectible trading cards, based upon many well-known prop...

Looks like Kamen Rider Den-O's not the only one who starts on a climax. The toy lords of Premium Bandai have gifted us a mighty prize in this new, prestigious depiction of the towering lizard from 2016's smash hit Shin Godzilla, as shown in the exciting final act of the film. In which, the famous King of Monsters is seen firing his atomic beam, for this film given a distinct, purple glow, with an unnerving, elongated jaw. Check him out. Comparing the size of this item with the previously released Movie Monster Series Godzilla, Kaiju-Oh reaches nearly 11 inches in height, almost twice the size of the figure from its sister line. Wreaking giant-sized havoc in March 2018, the Kaiju-Oh 2016 Godzilla Climax Ver. is available now for pre-order and is priced at 7,560 yen.  
Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 2

Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 2

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Well, the time has finally come. Wave 2 of the Kamen Rider Build SODO figures is here! Much like wave 1, I'm nitpicking at best to find anything negative to say. This time around, we get 7 boxes and 4 figures instead of the prior 6 boxes and 3 figures. The 4 figures are HawkGatling, NinninComic, RocketPanda and our first villain, Night Rogue. Every figure is excellent in detail, articulation and accuracy, once again I find it very, very difficult to say anything negative about these figures, even the price is great. Overall, once again, these are the best Build figures on the market and I can't recommend them enough. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX_a8m5W1jk For this and other Kamen Rider and Tokusatsu merchandise, check out CSToys and BigBadToyStore.

On a day unlike any other, he came, he saw, he died like a hundred times. It's the maniacal Dan Kuroto, the sometimes antiheroic, always antihumble video game supervillain known as Kamen Rider Genm, in his twisted Dangerous Zombie form from the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid TV series. And here to give us a taste of what we may be coughing up our hard-earned coin for is toy reviewer extraordinaire Vangelus, ready to drop some knowledge bombs down your drainpipe, with no continues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N22ULPlYnWM For this and other Kamen Rider and Tokusatsu merchandise, check out CSToys and BigBadToyStore.

At last, his magnificence is upon us. Like a bat out of Faust's evil underground lair, the villainous Night Rogue emerges from the Kamen Rider Build television series, finally getting his shine with this S.H. Figuarts item from toy godsend Bandai Tamashii Nations.   Recently revealed as Himuro Gentoku, the duplicitous son of the Touto Prime Minister, Night Rogue acts as a leading member of the shadow organization Faust, conducting dangerous experiments on human subjects. And, in keeping with classic Kamen Rider tradition, as a key antagonist of the show, his theme is that of the bat. With a pose that screams "come at me, bro", this bad mamma-jamma is armed with his Steam Blade and Transteam Gun. These weapons combine to form the Steam Rifle. And did I mention the steam?...

Review: Kamen Rider Build DX Transteam Gun & Steam Blade

Review: Kamen Rider Build DX Transteam Gun & Steam Blade

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
So far, Kamen Rider Build has been a great series and its toys have been fairly solid. Items like the Build Driver and DX Full Bottle sets being the best the toy line has to offer and the weapons, so far, being mediocre. Nothing egregiously bad but just nothing noteworthy, UNTIL NOW! The Transteam Gun is the transformation device of Night Rogue and Blood Stark (I won't call him Stalk) and it is the best weapon of the line easily. The gun is a tad small but in fairness it looks small in Gentoku's hands in the show as well so I'll let that slide. The detail is fantastic, the gun fire sounds are satisfying and can be fired as fast or as slow as the user wants. You also get the DX Bat Full Bottle with this set, which can be inserted into the Transteam Gun for transformation into Night Rog...
