Frankenstein Video Review: Frankenstein

I think old Frank here is probably my least favorite of the Telco Motionettes.

The Wolf Man Video Review: The Wolf Man

Another Telco Halloween decoration, the Wolf Man is the closest thing in my collection to a Muppet!

Video Review: Ride Armor (Stick Type)

I can’t remember the last time a toy filled me with such internal confusion. I want to love this toy. I really do. I just love the ride armor design, and I love CM’s toys. It sounds like a match made in heaven. Unfortunately, it seems like someone...

Soryu Asuka Langley Video Review: Soryu Asuka Langley

Asuka Langley was the Second Child and piloted Evangelion Unit 02

Deluxe Titanus The Carrier Zord Video Review: Deluxe Titanus The Carrier Zord

Titanus is a HUGE toy: 22 inches long, around 10 high. Even knowing the beast’s size, I was still surprise when I got it. Out of the box, Titanus is easy to assemble… safe for the FORTY or so stickers to place. You’ll never convince me that a 4 year-...

Video Review: Baikanfu

The Soul of Chogokin Baikanfu (also pronounced Vaikanfu) is a pretty remarkable toy. One would think that it would suffer due to the intricate transformation but that is not the case here at all....

Video Review: Big Scale Yamato

The Big Scale SOP Yamato is an interesting piece. As a display model it is excellent. Full of detail and grandeur. But as a toy, not so much.

Video Review: Mazinger-Z 1969

This take on the classic Go Nagai design is all about power and aggression. From the skull-like faceplate to the giant knuckled fists, this robot will chew up and spit out all the other toys in your collection.

Video Review: Irongear

Irongear is a lot of fun, and I really love the fact that it is “Ready to go” right out of the box – I can’t stress that enough.

Video Review: Type-J9 Griffon (Flight Unit Version)

The Revoltech was just a tease. The CM’s Corps Brave Gokin Griffon is the real deal. (Video Review)

Video Review: Barricade

Barricade made a very memorable baddie in the movie but does he make as cool a toy? Read on to find out. With VIDEO.

Starscream Video Review: Starscream

“Now I am ruler of the Decepticons” He’ll stab you in the back when you’re not looking, he always runs from a fight and he’ll always kick you when your down but we love the sniveling, whiny Decepticon anyway. It’s my review of Transformers Classic...

Video Review: Rodimus

Transformers Classic figures started hitting the shelves just around the holidays and it was not until I was given one that I realized just how cool the new iterations of the old characters are. Read on for a full review. Video is also included.

GaoRanger combination - Hyakujuu Gattai Gao Icarus Video Review: GaoRanger combination - Hyakujuu Gattai Gao Icarus

A very impressive and successful end to the primary mecha line from the 25th-Anniversary Super Sentai series.

Gao Falcon Video Review: Gao Falcon

I tell ya- this may be my favorite individual Power Animal of them all! The level of detail put into this thing is awesome and successfully crowns the entire 2001 line of Power Animals.

DX Daikenjin Zubaan Video Review: DX Daikenjin Zubaan

I find it hard to complain about things like less poseable elbows or non-poseable legs, and those things can be overlooked because what they did do was excellent!

Video Review: DX Chouzetsu Gougou Gattai DaiVoyager

For a name which means "Transcendental Thundering Combination Great-Voyager" in Japanese, I would have expected something a bit more, oh I don't know- transcending from Bandai and PLEX.

Gougou Gattai Vehicle #5 - Gougou Jet Video Review: Gougou Gattai Vehicle #5 - Gougou Jet

I’ve said this before of other Super Sentai toys: if it wasn’t for the benefits of their transformations, I would not have gone for Gougou Gattai Vehicle #5- Gougou Jet as a standalone. Its multiple uses, however, make it a must have for the Gougou...

Leopaldon & Spider-Man Video Review: Leopaldon & Spider-Man

It seems like Bandai is finally Getting it. They have taken a classic design with a great transformation and brought it into the modern era of engineering. Special video review with Nathan B.

Gao Dias Video Review: Gao Dias

I [personally] consider Gao Dias to be one of the most versatile and powerful of all Power Animals, seeing as how he was able to heal five PAs all at the same time, and then restrain [an] Orgu by himself.

Gao Rhino and Gao Armadillo Video Review: Gao Rhino and Gao Armadillo

Gao Rhino and Gao Armadillo make an interesting, possibly unique, pair in the Power Animals line.

DX Majuu Gattai Gao Hunter Evil Video Review: DX Majuu Gattai Gao Hunter Evil

To get a DX Gao Hunter was a highlight in my Super Sentai collection that has finally been fulfilled. The movement of the arms, the paint apps, how it changes - all of that makes it a highly favored piece in my collection.


GaoRanger combination - Hyakujuu Gattai Gao Muscle Video Review: GaoRanger combination - Hyakujuu Gattai Gao Muscle

Gao Muscle is a near completely different creature from Gao King. Gao Bison remains as the lower torso and legs, but Gao Eagle has been demoted to waist joint/skirt; its wings now wrapped around Gao Bison's head instead.


Gao Gorilla Video Review: Gao Gorilla

Gao Gorilla has turned into one of my favorite Power Animals because of the glistening green coloring, and his wide range of poseability. But there is one more, important reason why I got him...

Dragonhawk Video Review: Dragonhawk

It's the centerpiece of the G.I. Joe Sigma 6 vehicle line the Dragonhawk. Read a full review with VIDEO here.
