Master Stars Piece Vegeta

It's Dragonball Tuesday and today I have the pleasure to share with you another great Dragonball figure from Master Stars Pieces from Banpresto. It's the Super Saiyan Vegeta!

The box did a better job in presentation for Vegeta in my opinion compare to Son Gokou 2 in the previous series.

Out of box, the figure do look exactly like the packaging from the back!

Here is the whole complete look of Vegeta out of packaging and it look great from the color tone, painting and sculpting.

First I find the color of the Super Saiyan hair was done just right. The simple body tight suit was exactly the same from the Manga.

The pose and proportion was also accurate as Vegeta is not really tall but have a bigger torso and small butt. Regardless this figure was quite heavy but have good balance in term of display.

These spacesuit was Vegeta choice in every of his battle scene. The detail of the boot was good.

Vegeta had basically done away any armor since his youth and now it's all about power and agility.

The shading of the color tone of the skin define the cutting of muscles was brilliant.

But the best of all that trigger me to collect these series was the scale. That is correct. Vegeta in scale look correct as Goku in the Manga are a bit taller than him.

Back to back with Goku still look good together don't you agree?

If you place them face to face, it do suggest some awkward situation here...

Nonetheless, these figure are really awesome and it definitely worth the money to have them as display in my toy collections.

I would be looking closely on these Masterstars Piece series and if there's anymore I find it is good, I will review over at this site.

Do you like this Vegeta?

1/6 Original Effect Soul Buster ZhouYu

Something caught my eyes recently and it was from Original Effect having a good looking 1/6 figure.

Apparently she was one of the character in a Chinese Manga Soul Buster 《侍灵演武》 and she was Zhou Yu 周瑜. It was suppose to be a character game character from a fictional Romance of three Kingdom.

The close up of the figure of her having anime looking feature with a more Japanese style helmet...

Her style are more mixed between medieval and Japanese armor.

Even the sword was more western style...

Having a mixed of Japanese sailor school girl uniform and some armor...

When the helmet is off, she do look really sweet with hair casted in flowing position. It was told to have moveable eyes for user to move the eye position. Interesting.

Here's the back view with helmet off.

These figure comes with lot of goodies along with the card game.

It is schedule to release in Feburary 2015.

Are you interested in this figure?

Peppa Pig & Family Pack

Today I am going to review a toy that my kid enjoy recently. Peppa Pig from Character Group!

As a parent, one of the quality way to spend time to know your kid is to learn what they like and enjoy. For my cases, he really enjoy watching this simple children program day in and out even on youtube. It was not long that I learned of the characters in this series and started to love them too.

For starter, we got to have Peppa Pig and her family which only come in 2 separate packaging. One Peppa and her Mother and the other was Peppa's Father and her younger brother George. Each of this packet are cheaper now when it first came out and it's a great time to get them.

At the back of each packaging it will feature what others product of Peppa Pig to have a better toy playing experiences.

That being said, it's time to Open the Toy!

I will open Peppa first as she is the lead. The figure out of package resemble the cartoon character well as this is a 3D toys. The best look was always from the side as it appear in the 2D cartoons.

At the back of her, there was her curly cute tail.

The toy have articulation on her arms and both legs.The arms can be push open and close separately but the legs it movement is together. Her head was not able to turn tho....

Here's Mama Pig that comes with Peppa.

Since she is better in size, you can have a better view of the movement of her arms. Since this toy is for younger kids, some basic articulation is good enough.

Now let's look at Papa Pig and little George.... and truth to scale George is the tiniest but the articulation remain the same as Peppa.

Daddy Pig is a challenge as she is big and round.

The body shape is just the same between the father and son.

Here is the scale comparsion between Peppa and George. See how tiny George is?

Alas they are together as a family. My son certainly love this family and having them together. Else he will keep asking for the family to be complete....

So here it is, the basic figures of Peppa Pig and they do look great as a family.

There are others figures in 2 characters peg which consist of Peppa and her friends. I will review other Peppa Pig in time to come. So stay tune!

Meanwhile my kid is playing with it as I wrote this post. LOL

Mobile Suit Gundam MS Mobile Stand

I haven't do some review on capsule toys and here are some interesting Capsule toys for Gundam's fans.

I got a few go for these capsule toys from Mobile Suit Gundam MS Mobile Stand series 2 which was release in July 2014.

In this series, there are Char's Zaku, Zaku, Gun Cannon, Gouf, Zeong and Garma Zabi each was selling 200 Yen in Japan

I went for 2 tries and I got myself a Zaku!

The Zaku stood around 2.3 inches in height.

This Zaku figure do not have any decals just a basic shape and color tone.

On it's own, it does not really stand well...

However if you put it to be the function it was designed for, this Zaku can stand the weight and stood well.

I can adjust any angle to read or watch stuff on my mobile phone. For the picture I was watching the Gundam Build Fighters on the official youtube channel.

On my second try, I got a Zeong and it has some basic detail of how it suppose to be including the basic coloring tones.

Looking from behind, it seems Zeong is making a speech. LOL.

Regardless of it same size, you can still use Zeong to adjust the height of where it suppose to be so the user can view the screen at any angle.

If you do not want to place them as handphone stand, you can do what I did by placing them against some glass panel and it will still look equally awesome!

It is quite a good value for Gundam fan to have some of these. Just make sure your handphone are not those heavy or bigger screen (ideal for iPhone user actually) so the figure can function as design to hold the phone at some angles.
