SDCC ’11 – Excl. Cold Slither Zarana Review

July 28, 2011

Recently back from Comic-Con. I think it’s about time I started posting relevant material. First off is the SDCC ’11 Exclusive Cold Slither Zarana I got while there.

Cold Chillin'

While at the Con I had some time to do a quick review of the figure:

Here’s a quick video showing some of the stuff I got at the Convention:

Actually it’s the only day I bought anything at there. Not included in this video are the Exclusive Sentinel and Hot Toys Black Widow. Both of which were in the car at the time.

Captain America – Red Skull Review

June 10, 2011

A quick and dirty review of the Captain America Red Skull figure.

On The Breacher

May 10, 2011

Took Breacher out a while back to take some pictures.

Bridge Breacher

So how about a little review to go along with these photos?

Ok!

He’s a pretty solid little Scout Class Transformer. Nice vibrant colors, detailing and the gun on top even rotates and can move up and down when in his tank mode. The transformation from bot to alt-mode is a bit more trying than going from alt to bot-mode, but that may just be me. As you can see from the photos there’s a panel on the front right side that wont properly set in when he’s in his little tank form, but that’s not too much of a bother.

Breacher’s tank mode is based on the Ratel, an Infantry Fighting Vehicle (or so that’s what the Transformers Wiki site tells me). I’m not too familiar with this vehicle. I guess I’m not up to date with my IFVs, but he does look pretty close to real life counter part. What do you think?

In his bot-mode, Breacher has some excellent articulation, especially for the size and class of the figure. His panels and kibble work well with his over all aesthetics and don’t hinder his functionality too much, as he can still get into some nice dynamic poses.

Captain Breacher

A couple of small gripes regarding Breacher in his bot-mode: His gun pops off of his had too easily (which is why I didn’t pose him with it) and his upper body area doesn’t peg into his waist, so he tends to bend forward while handling him. Oh and his numbers (28) and autobot insignias are upside down on his forearms.

Final Score: 7/10

He’s a great little toy, aside from those tiny (get it?) gripes I mentioned earlier. But they’re easily forgivable seeing as how he’s a Scout Class figure so I wasn’t expecting much. But with his excellent paint apps, great playability in both his bot and alt-modes, Breacher really stands out among the other Scout Class figures (and even the bigger guys). Not only that, but while in his tank form you can easily put him in your pocket and take him along with you where ever you want. So scout your local toy emporium and breach not having this figure. It will transform your life. … I’ll stop now.

A quick review of Play Arts’ Halo Reach Noble Six figure.

And how ’bout some pics?

And if you happen to have some Re-Ments food sets (or some like them) they’re in perfect scale with this figure.

G.I. Joe: PoC – Cobra Fury Review

January 31, 2011

Here’s a quick look at the PoC Cobra Fury.

Please don’t mind the hinge that comes undone when I move the canon up. I didn’t notice ’til after I uploaded the video.
