Hot Toys MMS307 T-800 Guardian Terminator: Genisys

04 July 2015

With the release of Terminator Genisys, it make logical assumption that fans who collect 1/6 figures would want to have the latest Terminator. So again Hot toys is giving that to you but this figure would only be out in the first quarter of 2016.

Here are the preview shot of Arnold Schwarzenegger (or a much older toward senior years) still wearing the evergreen look of black leather jacket.

Just look at the figure make you think you are in the movie.

With the sunglass it is so iconic!!

The figure will come with additional head with the special effect of exposing the exoskeleton on one side of his face.

All he need is a shotgun and everything will be terminated.

You can put the sunglasses on this head too. No glowing eye effect tho....

This figure offer simple accessories but don't expect this to be cheap because it will not be.

If T-800 of  Terminator: Genisys is out, you can imagine which other characters will be following... ;)

S.H.Figuarts 1st Appearance of Super Saiyan Gokun

30 June 2015

It took sometime or maybe running out of idea for Bandai to release the first appearance of Super Saiyan Son Gokun when he was battling Freiza in the S.H.Figuarts version.

Thanks to Freiza for triggering the anger of Gokun to achieve that stage where he shouting at Freiza!

Particularly I love the broken shirt effect but I find the body is too clean to be manga accurate. If it is battle damage it should have some wounds. Who knows that effect will be another version for some SDCC exclusive in years to come as same mold just repaint.

I have to say the design seem like good improvement but how many version of Goku do you think the fan can actually afford??

Releasing in November 2015 with the listed price of 5,200Yen.

Here is the official advertisement

Are you willing to get this version?

McDonalds Lava Shooting Kevin Minion

28 June 2015

Well Well Well... The release of the new Minion movie has mcdonald releasing new series of Minions toys and this is the second week. I manage to get the Kevin as in the new movie he got his cool Lava gun!

The instruction of the packaging is clear. It will not shoot lava but it will light up the gun giving it Lava effect. It need batteries which already included, switch and trigger to activate this feature.

The look of Kevin is good just like the movie. Even to scale among this collectible series, Kevin remain as the tallest one.  He is the inspiration of all minions...

Now to turn on the Lava effect you got to do two steps. First move the switch to 1 from 0...

Next pull the trigger back and you should see the lava gun lighting up. Does it look like Lava effect??

Here is one in full darkness...I find it is fun for kids if they put on some imagination. You have to remain pulling the trigger to achieve this Lava effect tho. 

Okay Play time!! Let's put the lava to work to see if it can melt this butter. Go Kevin!!!!!

OMG!! the butter is melting!!!  That's awesome!!!

Kids at home do not try this. Kevin is a train professional. 

Keep the imagination going kids and have fun!!
