With the SH Monsterarts Destoroyah released and King Kong almost here, I thought I’d take a quick look at one of the early items in the line. The Mechagodzilla effects parts and Garuda aircraft have easily become my favorite bonus set so
While Noisy is busy draining his wallet on MP Transformers, my funds are condemned to a different fate. I’m not really sure when I’ll have to tap out (Biollante will probably test that), but for now I’m pretty happy to currently complete
While convention season is pretty much over stateside, Japan had a big one up its sleeve with Tamashii Nations 2012! Bandai of Japan has been garnering a large portion of my collecting interest over the last couple years, and the 2013 reveals
King Ghidorah is one of my most anticipated figures in the MonsterArts line. But having mine stuck in customs for a week had me chewing my fingernails to the bone. I compulsivelyy checked the tracking number, hoping he had passed through! Thankfully, the long wait is over!
Theme weeks are always fun, but they sometimes put me a little behind on reviews I really wanted to get to. I have some really great Transformers, Figuarts, and LEGO Minifigures articles coming down the pike. But before that I thought I’d get the
I’m following up our Reviewapalooza II week with a figure from one of my favorite toy lines, Bandai of Japan’s S.H. MonsterArts. I never expected the line be so extensive that I’d get a Little Godzilla figure. But I’m certainly glad they made him,
I didn’t want all that much from San Diego Comic Con this year. There was the annual Mattel offerings of MOTU Classics (which I got), and Monster High (which I didn’t get). Other than that, my only real target was Bluefin’s SH Monsterarts Godzilla
After trudging through Ebay and various sites dedicated to reselling toys for the last few weeks, the stars aligned & I discovered Godzilla’s bonus effects pack. The most difficult thing was finding it at a decent price while I had the extra
I’m not really a big MOGERA fan. I picked him up because he’s the next kaiju in the Monsterarts line. But believe it or not, he impressed me so much that I think he may be the best Monsterarts figure Bandai has
I was pretty excited this week, waiting for my mailman to deliver the next figure in Bandai’s SH Monsterarts line. Even though Space Godzilla isn’t one of my favorite characters, I love it when my kaiju shelf grows. They just look so
Tamashii Features is Bandai’s own personal toy show, showcasing the new projects and properties that they will be releasing in the following year. Our man in Japan, Robert Baldwin, took some time to check out all that Bandai had to offer. All
Just a couple weeks after Bandai’s Godzilla release, the second figure in the SH MonsterArts line is already here. I’m glad I didn’t have to wait too long. My Godzilla was getting bored just beating up all of my Revoltechs. Now he
I’ve been pretty interested in Bandai’s SH MonsterArts line ever since it was announced earlier this year. Not only would it deliver our first super articulated Godzilla figure, but it would have to keep the same quality we were accustomed to from
It’s convention season and ItsAllTrue is kicking off our convention coverage with a look at Tamashii Feature’s Summer 2011 show. This year Bandai’s showing off plenty of Gundam, Kamen Rider, Super Sentai (Power Rangers), Godzilla and more to whet your toy collecting appetites.
I was really looking forward to the twenty-third figure in the Sci-Fi Revoltech line. Not only is Gigan one of Godzilla’s main enemies, but he’s a fairly prominent kaiju. Surely his solicitation signified that the Sci-Fi line was moving on to the more prominent and popular members of the Godzilla-verse, right?
Tamashii Feature’s is Bandai’s own personal toy show, showcasing the new projects and properties that they will be releasing in the following year. So to wrap up our coverage of the Japanese toy industry this week, our own Robert Baldwin stopped by on media preview night to check out what Bandai has in store.
Just before Winter Wonder Festival 2011, we put out an open call for questions to ask the various companies that attended the show. Our own Robert Baldwin caught up with many of the company representatives and got a few interesting answers and some big news concerning the future of the Sci-Fi Revoltech line.
Number nineteen in Revoltech’s Sci-Fi line is Toho’s second giant monster, Anguirus. A loyal friend to Godzilla with a tenacious fighting style, Anguirus has become one of the most loved kaiju among fans. Plus, I’m also hoping that between his and Rodan’s inclusion in the line, Godzilla can’t be too far behind.
So, did everyone get what they wanted for Christmas? Raise your hand if you asked for peace on earth, but settled for toys! It’s up to me to kick off IAT’s first review of the new year and nothing says Happy New Year better than a giant radioactive pteranodon. You guessed it, Sci-Fi Revoltech #19: Rodan
Taking a break from the giant monsters this time out, Revoltech has released the Type 66 Maser Cannon as its fifteenth “figure” in the Sci-Fi line. Godzilla fans will recognize this classic laser shooting satellite dish as one of Japan’s weapons against the monsters, but how does it stack up against this line
Before my next Revoltech shows up, I thought it’d be a good idea to write a review for my last one. Moguera is the thirteenth Sci-Fi Revoltech to be released. He came out the same time as Mothra, but is far less known. So he became one of those figures that I was hoping was cool, since I didn’t know who he was either.
Revoltech’s Sci-Fi series continues with two more kaiju releases this month. First up is one of the most popular and recognizable monsters in the Godzilla universe: The Thing known as Mothra, Guardian of the Earth. As a Godzilla fan, I had to have it, but I also
You may not know Baragon, but he’s important. He fought (and lost) to a giant Frankenstein in Frankenstein Conquers the World (I have no idea why Frankenstein was huge). Later on, Baragon would return to fight Godzilla in Destroy All Monsters. He’s also appeared in five video
