Video Review: Samurai Gattai Series 04- Ika Origami

This toy becomes part of combinations that should never have been in the first place because they don’t know what they are, why they exist, or what to do with themselves.

Video Review: Zangeki Kanjoutou Sakanamaru

I must admit to being disheartened a bit over its lack of control with the sound effects.

Video Review: ARC-170 Starfighter

It has been modernized a little to be clean and refined, and streamlined some bumps that the original 2005 set had.

Video Review: Undercover Cruiser

Ahh, those clever Space Police and their surprise intergalactic speed traps…

Video Review: Hailfire Droid

Even though all you can do is roll it around and flip the laser turret down, this set is more about dominating the minifig-filled battlefield.

Video Review: VB-6 Konig Monster SP Ver.

Bandai knocks it out of the park with this great DX Chogokin!

Video Review: Emperor Palpatine's Shuttle

It doesn’t have the gimmicks I thought it would, but it's a nice average set, just what I needed to fill that particular gap in my LEGO collection.

Video Review: Robot Desk Set

Here’s an anonymous, non-licensed quasi-toy which succeeds on its own merits despite its forgettable nature.

Video Review: Combat Hero

Possibly the most annoying robot toy ever. This one you gotta see, with VIDEO

Kotobukiya continues their line of D-Style Kits. Here is the infamous Griffon for your building pleasure.

A glorious ending to the Tobikage Soul of Chogokin Trilogy.

Video Review: Rodimus Minor

One of the best Rodimus toys we have to date. Do you go the USA or Japan route to acquire yours? Take a look and decide for yourself.

Video Review: SDF-1 Macross (Do You Remember Love type)

My toy collecting has come full circle. THE toy I wanted when I was younger but could never have, the Do You Remember Love SDF-1 Macross, is now in my hands in glorious 1/3000 scale.

Video Review: God Reideen

The fact that they made another toy of this design gives me hope that the SRC line will be a unique and original line, and not just the same old characters re-hashed. With HD Video Review

Video Review: System Mecha Collection Srungle

“On the Elusive Nature of Perfection,” or “Srungle, The Differently-Abled Robot”

Video Review: Reideen the Brave

I still think Bandai has a ways to go before perfecting what should be a simple transformation mechanism, but as a whole I really like this latest version of Reideen.

Video Review: King Ding and His Robot Brain

Like American Muscle cars, American robot toys were often big, powerful and filled with gimmicks and details that delighted and astounded. Most collectors of vintage Japanese and modern robot toys are unfamiliar with the wonders of these motorized...

Video Review: Type-7 Brocken Labor (OVA Version)

Rarely do I hate a toy. I can usually find some redeeming value in most every toy I get, or be able to find some reason why one type of collector would want it. You have to respect, at the very least, the work someone put into making the item in...

Video Review: PA-SP Gao Kong

In the end, I got this set because it felt like adding something special to the collection of Power Animals I already had, and it was through previous confidence in the Gao Gorilla that convinced me it was a good choice.


Video Review: Mazinger Weapon Set

Is a Rocket Punch worth $10? I take a look at the Super Robot Chogokin Mazinger Weapon Set. With HD Video.

Video Review: Dirge

A conehead favorite makes his appearance in Hasbro's great Generations lineup.

Video Review: U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D

I give my highest recommendations for this set! It is a beautiful centerpiece to any sci-fi collector’s shelves, and will make any Trekkie drool on the spot. Just… don’t give it to any kids, and don’t drop it, okay?


Video Review: Deluxe Light Cycle: Sam Flynn

Unlike Flynn’s lightcycle, this one is labeled as a “Deluxe” set, and rightly so. This is everything that one wasn’t. This is an awesome toy.
