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: 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...

Ultraman Geed is back. Just a few months after the giant hero series aired its final episode, we return for one last battle with Asakura Riku, the young son of the villainous Belial, as he fights to protect the world he now calls home from the rampage of alien monsters. And here to light a fire under his shiny, silver exterior is none other than Kurenai Gai, the harmonica-playing wanderer best known as the title hero of 2016's Ultraman Orb. Let's do this. https://youtu.be/vioFksgzeY8 Now, as much as I try to get hyped on Geed again, I have to say that it made me laugh a bit to see him quickly reduced to a self-doubting kid again after the events of his own series, apparently leading to Gai stepping in to give him a pep talk about what must be done. Gai is kind of the bigger draw here...

And now, a message from: DolphinTrash’s Top 4 POWER RANGERS PSAs

Public Service Announcements, an endearing component of children’s programming in the 80s and 90s that transformed 30-minute toy commercials into platforms for social change. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television series faced an additional challenge: At the height of popularity, the show depicted teenagers performing martial arts that were mimicked on playgrounds across the country. Drawing from the "violence begets violence" mantra, it was prudent to nip the prospects of “children injuring themselves because of something they saw on Power Rangers" lawsuits in the bud before they arose. For your viewing pleasure (or something), I present to you the top 4 MMPR public service announcements. http://www.youtube.com/embed/MnOeioy7qu8 Making Friends From Enemies Our first two...

In case word hasn't traveled to your neck of the interwebs just yet, there's somehow a Detective Pikachu movie getting made. What's more amazing is that this flick, based on the popular video game and anime series Pokemon, in which "pocket monsters" battle it out for sport, is starring Ryan Reynolds. As Pikachu. The cartoon rodent-looking thing that generally doesn't say anything but repetitive variations on the syllables of his own name. Even after weeks of information slowly dripping out of the tap on this production, we're still asking if there's any way this could be a really expensive mix-up. Are we getting punk'd? Is getting punk'd still a thing? This question and many others need answering as we countdown to the release on this alleged movie. Ryan Reynolds has been acting his p...
How to Fix POWER RANGERS

How to Fix POWER RANGERS

Blog, Power Rangers, Uncategorized
I've been a proud fan of the Power Rangers franchise for my whole life, happy to say that I've been here since the beginning. But this year Power Rangers celebrates its 25th anniversary and I can not even begin to feel excited about that milestone. I'm not alone, a lot of fans would say that they aren't enjoying the show like they use to. Sure we're all older, we've all matured but that doesn't mean we've grown out of Power Rangers. The show has always had ups and down. Naturally, some people will enjoy one season over another, but lately it feels like this show has been nothing but a cash-in on our childhood nostalgia and I, for one, am fed up with that. After Disney dropped Power Rangers (and left us on the awesome high note that was Power Rangers RPM) Saban Brands struck a deal wit...
