TakaraTomy Mazinger Gashapon

What is this looking Mazinger? Is it a diecast toy?

No. Believe it or not, this is one of the capsule toy from TakaraTomy series.

In fact in this capsule or Gashapon series, there are many Mazinger and they have different usage for display and for desktop purposes like 2 of time to hold an actual namecard and one which I am reviewing is a mobile phone holder.

But I will come to that later.

Let's us just look at the pose and details in the full front view

On the right side of the Mazinger capsule toy...

The close up details of the face has quite good details despite of it's size...

On the left side of the Mazinger capsule toy...

On the back of the Mazinger butt, there is the product trademark.

You need to use an suction device to put on the hands of  this is one of the capsule toy from TakaraTomy series.

With the attachment of the suction, it affect the looks of the display figure.  Plus the part does not really does it job to support a mobile phone. Likely this figure would fall.

Nonetheless for display or presentaton. this Mazinger rock.

My Melody fans who are jealous that Hello Kitty got 2 Chogokins, be envy no more as My Melody will be having her own Chogokin design in coming January 2016!

It comes with a My Melody pilot and the cockpit is actually at it's tummy.

If you think the Tummy cockpit is too obvious, you can hide it by turning that the other side.

In the standing mode you can push it and it will roll with the wheels on it's feet.

Flipping the body back will activate the cockpit up to the top while there will be a visor in blue lowering down giving My Melody a cool look.

In the above position, you can push it like a car rolling on the floor.

For weapon, you just need to turn his bunny ears to the front and it will shoot a heart. This apply on both ears.

Starwars Darth Revan

When the game of Knight of the Old Republic game first release, it was a hit for Starwars fan. I remember playing the game on my XBOX console and the story and the characters are awesome!

The lead of the game is Darth Revan. A masked character who was suppose to be a fearsome Sith Lord. When Hasbro first release the figure, I know I got to have him and here he is.

This toy was release in 2007 and he was a fan choice. The first release of Darth Revan which come with a medal. Here is the card design.

At the back of the card tell a summary of Darth Revan in the game of Knight of the Old Republic.

He came with only 2 accessories. A lightsaber with blade and one without blade. Both are different Lightsaber by design.

The coin or the medal was rather light for metal but it is metal and when you strike the coin, it give out the metal sound.The coin indicated that Darth Revan was from the Expanded Universe of Starwars.

The toy is very much articulated but not his legs and there are no knee or feet articulation which kinda make this figure having issue in standing. But overall the design detail kind of make up for it.

But personally I find the detail can be improve as the detail of his Mask was not really accurate as some part are not in correct coloring.

Like a Sith, Darth Revan look good with a red lightsaber ready to strike his foes.

The hood piece of this toy can be removed (not certain it is for design or offering features of this figure), But when the hood is off, Darth Revan seems to be bald like Darth Vader minus the scars on the head.

Not really what I expected for this look.

Quickly put back his hood to keep the original cool look as I remember him to be in the game.

Why I review this toy till now? Well because I like Darth Revan and I believe his appearance in the character kind of influence the coming Sith in Starwars episode VII. The Force Awakens as the hood and the mask having resemblance of Darth Revan.

To be honest, if they do the story of The Knight of the Old Republic, they would have a successful proven formula for milk more many and give new hope to Starwars fan.

Now we have to see if Starwars episode VII is worth the wait and the Sith will be just like Darth Vader (Episode IV to VII) or Darth Maul.

What do you think?

HG 1/144 Gundam Barbatos Preview

If you do not know yet, there will be another new Gundam series named "RON-BLOODED ORPHANS" and the main Mobile suit is Gundam Barbatos. Therefore releasing in October, here's the HG 1/144 Gundam Barbatos

This Gundam is more to hand to hand melee weapon. More of old fashion style as the accessories or weapons is just a club and a sword (not beam sword)

This model kit allow the shoulder pieces to be removed.

At the back is just a simple Gundam design as the era of this series the resources are limited and they very much make do with what they have.

This Gundam suit would very much attract those who like Red frame as there are certain similarity with Red Frame which are good with physical sword and not beam sword.  

The listed price for this model kit in HG is just 1,000Yen.

Seems like a good mobile suit to have.

Let's face it, Elsa from Frozen is one Cool character in the recent years. So cool that she is going to have her own 12" action figure by Medicom.

Beware of this Snow Queen as the figure resemble so much in the animation. Of her beauty like her features and costume....

The dress was so fine and details....

They made it correct to have her hair as a whole cast that still give the animation looks.

She comes with 3 expression like a Cold looks, happy looking side and her sing face.

So much captured of her Let it go song expression!!

If you are a Elsa fan, this is one figure you got to have it! It will be releasing in April 2016 at the price range of 27,000 Yen

Playmobil 3168 Police Biker

It has been sometime I pick up a Playmobil and when I see a bicycle Playmobil, it interest me.

This is the Police Patrol with a bicycle, Police Playmobil with a safety bike helmet and a handgun. 

Because it is a bicycle outdoor Playmobil, I decided that he will look better if he really get outside. So he went on patrol in some park.

It is a sunny morning and a great day to exercise...wait he is some purpose to be on duty and not exercise.

His Police uniform are sporty type with the police wording on his bicycle pant....

On his shirt, he have a Police badge printed on him. If you must know, the safety helmet felt good with the curves.

I know that on bicycle, he may outrun many criminal that is on foot but on vehicle I have some doubts....

If he is a experience biker, he may travel on different terrain and still be good at it in term of speed. 

This is taken care of because the bike wheel are more like mountain bike and not those smooth one that can race only on roads. So I would guess this Police are more on parks patrol.

He have to been on look out on the side of the road as sometime he may pick up dead bodies (That what I read on news and Hollywood movies...).

All in all, this is a good looking and fun playmobil that you or your kids can bring it outdoor for fun. But please be careful and not get carry away where you are playing it.

Remember as Police always say, Safety first.

Okay on with his Patrol.... See you guys later...

Do you like the outdoor photography?
