Enter the Sandman Megabloks

This is my first review and owning a toy from Megabloks. It was a blind pack of Marvel series 3 figures.

These series has a number of character that I would like to have such as Spider-man, Iceman and Silver surfer.

But all I get was the Sandman from Spider-man 3.

Although I am not really a fan of Sandman I am rather impress with the articulation and look of this figure from Megabloks. The number of the articulation due to his size can compare with Hasbro bigger figures.

The figure comes with a block and one accessory.

Of all accessories, Megabloks gave this sandman a bag of money since in the Spider-man 3 movie he robbed the bank.

Here is a close up on the face of Sandman

The feet of the figure are hollow so it can fit itself on the brick given.

The only weapon Sandman was his sand mace on his right arm.

If the attack never really works, he can always throw the bag of money on one direct as he run or disappear as sand to the other direction.

I have nothing much to complaint as the price of these figure is cheaper than the details on this toy.

If you are a Marvel fan, you can try your luck on these blind packs.

LEGO The Lone Ranger Coming

LEGO has yet to have more and more movies licenses figure on their belt. The coming would be The Lone Ranger, a classic TV series that was remade into a movie releasing in July 2013.

The LEGO toys came before the movie and will be releasing April 2013. Here are the playset which should be enough to give you a preview to the movie plot. :P

The Cavalry Builder Set which make out of Lone Ranger and 3 infantry men.

Comanche Camp which is an interesting set of Lone Ranger, 2 Red Indians and scorpions

Stagecoach Escape which the Stagecoach is a beauty.

Colby City Showdown a playset for you to shoot between the Bank and the Sheriff House.

Silver Mine Shootout where there is a tall construct and moving Mine kart

Constitution Train Chase is the biggest playset in the series as you can build a complete loop of the railway tracks for the train.

If you are into old western stuff, this Lego series could be just for you.

So what do I remember about The Lone Ranger? The show always end with Lone Ranger riding off the sunset and someone will ask another "Who is he?" and the other would answer "He is the Lone Ranger."

Catch these set in April.

The Legendary Pokemon Mew

My first learned about the legendary Pokemon Mew is not of the Gameboy game but in the Pokemon: The First Movie.

Mew was a mysterious Pokemon but do you know the Mew was actually a secret character added by the programmer of the pokemon game? It was a character which suppose to be executive to Game Freak (the game developers). However Mew make a couple appearance by the players to encounter due to glitch of the game. This created a hype as the character was rare and not listed. Because of the secret of Mew, the Pokemon game go viral resulting in good sales figure.

Mew being a legendary pokemon, in the movie the human decided to play God to create a Clone using Mew DNA. That resulting MewTwo who started to look for meaning of his life. Soon after in the movie, MewTwo will face with Mew to fight it out.

Mew in the movie was a gentle and quite Pokemon. He often gave an impression that he/she is weightless floating around.

Personally I like Mew as he appear to be really a cool pokemon.

This capsule toy capture the good movement of Mew floating in the middle of the air.

Is Mew your favorite Pokemon as well?

Medicom RAH Legend of Zelda: Link Coming

If you are a big fan of Legend of Zelda, you be happy to know Medicom will be releasing Link from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in November 2013.

Being a fan and who have played this recent game on Wii, I totally love this figure as the appearance is good looking like the game and it comes with various expression.

Now sometime back Figma did release another version of Skyward sword Link in a 5" figure but this is 12" and the major different is that this is real fabric and just look at the details of Link's costume.

Not to mention it comes with good number of accessories in line with the game.

Medicom articulations enable Link to minic those pose in the game just as the important part of raising the sword toward the sky to charge the sword to attack.

Link can even hold a Bow waiting to shoot at his target!

With a good range of expressions, accessories and articulation with real fabric, I can say this is the Ultimate Link one can get.

If you are a big fan of Legend of Zelda especially in the recent version, this is one figure you may want to consider to get if you have the budget.

The release date is in November 2013 so you may have some time to save up to get this Link.

Yes his name is Link, not Zelda. Thank you. :)
