Todays Transformer comes from the Dark of the Moon movie toyline. Soundwave here is a Cyberverse/ Legends size, so he's small and transforms into a sport vehicle (BMW I believe). Pretty cool even though the transformation is simple.
Today's mini comes from the Mega Bloks Spider-Man line. This is one of the few mini-figs that Mega Bloks has NOT re-released in the current(?) Marvel Universe line. A shame too because I think he looks WAY better than the Lizard from the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man film.
Today's foreign Friday entry is Kamen Rider Den-O in his Gun form. He does come with a gun but I forgot to use it in the pic. Do'h! I really wish I could find more (read: inexpensive) of the Motion Revive figures as they are super articulated and blend in well with GI Joes, Star Wars and most figures with the 3 3/4" - 1:18th scale.
Hey look at that, a movie style Transformers on this blog! A rarity indeed. While I normally am not a fan of the aesthetics of the movie TFs I HAD to this guy. After all it's a Soundwave. Need I say more? lol
Because I never feature enough robots around here. ha! Here's a group of Zion mobile suits from various Mobile Suit Gundam mini figures from the NEO GUNDAM COLLECTION. They about 2" tall, super cool and cute all at the same time.
Yet another figure that I got during the holidays is the 6" Classics Lion-O. Normally I don't buy figures in this or any other scale taller that 3 3/4" - 1:18 scale, but come on. It's Lion-O! Who could resist? And just for the heck of it, there pics of the 8" figure. They're the same except for the head on the 6" version which has him yelling for some reason. Go figure. (pun intended)
I love this guy! He's big (Voyager size, I think), mean, stupid and loyal. Almost the perfect Decepticon soldier.
I found him in a Marshalls during the holidays and he just HAD to come home w/ me. He's a great substitute for the Animated version which was only released in Japan. Of course they got the better paint scheme for this toy too. Damn you HASBRO!!!! We have a love/ hate relationship... :)
Hey everybody! Happy New Year (a whole month late and all)!
December and January have been... odd and hectic, hence the lack of updates. I missed out on a few things that I said I'd deliver, like the nativity scene and such. Sorry about that guys!
I didn't get ANY toys for Christmas! But that doesn't mean I didn't get any toys during the time I was away from the blog. Pics and reviews will trickle out in the next few weeks along with some of the classics like Then and Now, Foreign Friday and Mini Mondays. Planning some changes around here but nothing is set in stone. So who knows? Either way there will ALWAYS be toys in this blog! Shoot as I write this there's a stack of figures (mostly Star Wars) I have yet to open!
