Transformers Prime Sharkticon Megatron

From the first time I gazed on this Megatron, I know I got to have it if the price is right. In fact this was the only Megatron from the Transformers Prime I wanted to get over the rest.

Meet Sharkticon Megatron who is suppose to be a "repaired" version


Why I love this figure, let's me open the toy and walk you through...Now look at the whole outline of this Megatron, Isn't him awesome?


Even on the side you can see the awesome chest piece...


On his back, you can see the fin like wings...


As a Shark, the chest pieces give an indication of the fierce look of the sea creature bite...


Even the skin tone was pale blue which to me look Zombie or undead skin. I like it! Can you imagine you have a undead Megatron?


For the weapon of choice, he has a Shark biting Gun as Megatron is known to have fire arms.


It fit him nicely to have a matching weapon.


Wait there is more to the weapon, the gun can transformed into a spear!


Now it look more fearsome as Megatron having a primitive weapon of Melee weapon. 


Robot mode and weapon a side, will the vehicle or disguise form be better? Take a look for yourself!


I would say it look way better than the rest of the Megatron in vehicle mode in the Transformers Prime as it is not like some weird looking plane, this Shark plane mode actually make more sense in term of design.

The head is a shark looking which look like a creature while the wings and side blade look very good and matching in the design.

On the plane, you will see the unique Decepticon logo...


To me this plane mode struck more fear and lead more people to respect and take this Megatron seriously. 


I never regret getting this zombie looking Sharkticon Megatron.  What about you?

Is it worth it?

Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Toys

We are just 2 months away from the new Michael Bay production of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Playmate has finally release the movie toys.

This is the regular toys of the 2014 movie with Leonardo and Donatello.


Raphael (man I love his pose in this packaging which so macho) and playful Michelangelo .


Do note the above version all of their eyes are white which is much like previous classic version. Maybe it was a tribute.

Now here is Spilinter and the good looking The Shredder


There will be a disguise Raphael and the Foot Soldier which dress like a SWAP team. 


Finally the one I guess most are interested to see. April O Neil or some just know her as Megan Fox. How you find this figure? She comes with 2 Sai which I think could be belong to Raphael. 


Well here is the Turtle Assault van of the movie which is more down to earth but if this driven on the road would be getting much attention...


There is another version which has more to an action figure which greater details...


These are the Combat warriors of Donatello, Michelangelo...


Leonardo and Raphael... These you get to see their expression on their eyes...

I would just wait for the movie to show before getting any of these figures. :)

SDCC 2014 S.H.Figuarts Vegeta Original Animation Colors

Here is another SDCC 2014 exclusive on Japanese side of thing. Tamashii Nations for the S.H.Figuarts series will be releasing the original Animation color Vegeta... Some call this repaint which you are not wrong to say that.


However before we jump into any conclusion we should think why is there such repaint? Apparently in the early animation, Vegeta was indeed given such colors in the animation during some flash back storyline..


So there you have it. A refreshing repaint for a historic mistake in some ways..


On a personal level I have no problem with this color theme. I mean Vegeta can dye his hair and change the color of his outfit. It is not like he change the color of his skin or height. LOL


Vegeta will always be Vegeta because of his attitude toward things in life.


So far there is no mention of the price but he will be included with folded arms, four interchangeable hand sets, including a scouter crushing hand part, three face expression and a head part with attachable scouter, tail  and some special effect parts and support stand.

I won't mind getting this if the price is right but from where I am residing, this figure would be far from me.

If you are in the event, you may consider getting this limited edition Vegeta.

Do you like this color theme?

Playmobil City Action Motorbiker

I always wanted a Bike in the for Playmobil and when I saw this set, I jump on it.


The bonus part it come with an egg but I know what was inside. So not quite surprising but another container I can keep.



Actually for this series, there was 4, a Red Indian girl, a Fairy, Biker and a Space Ranger of some sort.


The package come in pieces but not the figure and there are instruction to assemble the motorbike.


The instruction is pretty simple to follow...


Within minutes, the motorcycle is assembled. This is a heavyweight motorcycles designed for highway cruising. The long handle allow the driver to lean back to a more relaxing posture so in long journey is less taxing.


Once can easily identify this is a Harley Davidson with American theme on the motorcycle.


You will notice the front wheel is different from the back. This is more for functionality as the back wheel need more traction to drive the whole motorcycle.


So much for the motorcycle, it is time to look at the biker himself.

I was expecting something more as the look of this Playmobil biker do not match my expectation of a biker.


Firstly the Tattoo look too simple that I do not know what it means. I would expect an eagle tattoo would be appropriate for biker. Another would be his bread which is rather weird than fashionable. I do like his red bandanna but I was hoping they give him a shade to wear.


His attire like his boots. jeans, shirt and vest is matching a hippy biker. Also the gold bracelets also do the trick of profile matching.


His attire have a theme matching the decal of his motorcycle of having a Red, White and Blue and a Star.


Even his helmet match the theme. On the bike, he do look good as a bike who cruise around like that.


Although much of the motorcycle on Harvey Davidson would not be wearing a helmet... or so that's what Hollywood paint the picture of that to me. LOL


Nonetheless, I am glad to have this edition in my collection of Playmobil. I am sure he can do many stunt with this motorcycle.


What do you think about this Motor biker?
