Toy Review: S.H.Figuarts KAMEN RIDER BUILD

Toy Review: S.H.Figuarts KAMEN RIDER BUILD

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, toku, Toys
S.H.Figuarts are known for making the best Kamen Rider figures on the market and the current entry in the television franchise is no exception. Kamen Rider Build Rabbit Tank Form is beautifully crafted here in sleek and shiny red and blue plastic with mat black underneath. Topping him off are his gorgeous red and blue compound eyes that, of course, emulate a rabbit and tank. His articulation is 100% what you expect from a figure of this quality and brand, though the head is slightly limited by his design. As for accessories, Build is pretty light, having only 5 hands to swap between, he doesn't come with any weapons or effect parts. While this is a bit of a bummer, it's hard to be too mad at the figure. It's a regular release SHF (which is rare nowadays) and it's incredibly cheap, beat...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Nebula Steam Gun & DX Crocodile Crack Full Bottle

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Nebula Steam Gun & DX Crocodile Crack Full Bottle

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
In Kamen Rider Build's second quarter, they remodeled the DX Trans Steam Gun into the DX Nebula Steam Gun, complete with new sounds and a sweet new purple paint job. The toy also comes with 2 Gears (basically square Full Bottles) that can create 3 forms. Much like the Trans Steam Gun, you can put any bottles you want in here, but it only reads the 2 Gears and the DX Crocodile Crack Full Bottle, which we'll get into more later. By inserting either the Gear Remocon or the Gear Engine into the gun and pulling the trigger, the user now becomes Remocon Bro or Engine Bro respectively. Another trigger pull results in the final attack for either character. Now here's when things get really cool. By inserting one gear, then the other, you get the "Funky Match" and fuse into the Hell Bro, als...

The New York Toy Fair is currently in full swing. This is the time when companies create booths and give presentations to the press to show up what direction they are heading and what toys are coming out for the year. For toy geeks, it's like Christmas seeing all the new reveals. But one announcement that rocked the toy world was made a couple days prior. In probably the greatest shock to the fandom, it was revealed that Bandai of America and Saban Brands would be parting ways in 2019! After 25 years, Bandai of America will no longer make Power Rangers toys or import items from Toei Co's Super Sentai. Though it should be noted that Bandai of Japan will still continue to support Super Sentai with toys and merchandise. To put this announcement in perspective this would be like Hasbro di...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 5

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 5

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
SODO set 5 makes a huge comeback after the lackluster set 4 for the Kamen Rider Build series. We have the return to form with 3 full figures (4 if you count the re-release of Night Rogue but I already have him from set 2 so we'll only be focusing on the new figures). First up, we have PhoenixRobo and RabbitTank Sparkling. These guys are fairly standard figures, though that's not a bad thing. Both have excellent detail, articulation, roughly the same amount of stickers, and they both maintain the body swap gimmick. Build's Sparkling form only has one slight deviation from the norm, being a fully painted face that is also one solid piece unable to split up while the rest of him can. Cross Charge, however, is a completely new type of figure to this line. Also split into 2 boxes, Cros...
Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER’s  DX VS Changer, All DX Dial Fighters & Trigger Machines

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER’s DX VS Changer, All DX Dial Fighters & Trigger Machines

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
The Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger toy line has started off on a fairly high note. The concept of one Morpher being utilized slightly differently by both teams is an interesting one and the VS Changer pulls this off well, almost feeling like 2 separate Morphers. The toy can be purchased in 2 separate ways as well. One being the Lupinranger version and the other being the Patranger version. The VS Changer itself doesn't vary from set to set but rather the included mecha, being either the Red Dial Fighter or Trigger Machine Ichigo. In the end, regardless of which version you purchase, all of the DX Trigger Machines and Dial Fighters are available for individual purchase separately. The gun, for the most part, is white with black and orange highlight, and clear re...

Well, this is an interesting turn of events. After a partnership that endured across two and a half decades, entertainment company Saban Brands has taken a page out of the playbook of their most famous characters and decided to sacrifice the zords. Bandai America, who has worked with Saban for 25 years to produce toys based upon the long-lasting Power Rangers brand, has jointly announced its separation from the media company. Fans are already reeling from the thought that the one other consistent name that carried alongside Saban's where its multicolored superheroes were concerned may soon fade into memory. But as the news comes as a surprise, it's also not one that causes much confusion either. Bandai and Saban's statement follows: "After a successful 25-year partnership building ...

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Hazard Trigger, Smartphone Wolf & Unicorn Eraser Full Bottle Sets

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
The new power-up item introduced in the Kamen Rider Build TV series is the Hazard Trigger. This device allows Build to access his Hazard mode as well as utilize other forms later on down the line. The toy itself is pretty cool, turning already existing "Best Matches" into "Super Best Matches" and adding an awesome guitar effect, among others. This item is similar to the Cross Dragon or Rabbit Tank Sparkling in that it tries to make sounds in tandem with the Driver but it does not work well with the aforementioned items, only your basic Full Bottles. That being said, the henshin is the same despite the bottles used and the Hazard Trigger then offers the user 3 different attacks. The Hazard Attack by cranking the handle, the Overflow by pressing the button on the Hazard Trigger again, and ...

Giant bugs with laser-antennae. Bloodthirsty fiends from the depths of outer space. Titanic robots of unparalleled strength. Godzilla has been victorious in battle with dozens of seemingly unbeatable adversaries. But perhaps none as fierce as the latest threat standing before him. The menace of a broken heart. In this stop-motion comedy piece from Youtube channel MootroidXProductions, the radioactive lizard serves up his scorching heart for the object of his affection and a series of misunderstandings may lead to devastating consequences. His first romantic troubles were featured in a video a few years ago, only for the battle to rage on yet again this year, as we approach another Singles Awareness Day. Here's the original 2016 video, followed by its 2018 reboot. Because it's not j...
