From the hit anime and manga series, Dragon Ball Z, this prize figure released back in Feb 2017, is the fifth instalment in the Resolution of Soldiers , Future Trunks gets ready for action! There are very few licensed product of future Trunks in this outfit, therefore Banpresto hit the jackpot with this close adaptation, focusing on the moments of resolution during a fierce battle! The look and style of the highly recognized Resolution of Soldier figure line has taken figure fans by storm. I bought 2 figures of these and I especially like the customised painted version by professional, enhancing the shading and adding panel lines making the character more manga / anime like. Which do you prefer?  

Pissed-off facial expression with uncommon appearance of Trunks pulling his spandex white left glove, great detailed fix posed figure, good size @ 17cm, and not too pricey yet surpassed most standard for a great addition to any Dragon Ball DBZ collection. The fifth soldier in the collection, Future Trunks from the legendary Dragon Ball Z anime and manga franchise is captured gearing up for the next battle to come. Future Trunks geared up with Bulma's made Saiyan's suit, not easily torn when subjected to intensive training inside hyperbolic time cabin. 

Trunks as he has finished training with Vegeta, and is now ready to face the Androids invasion. Since, he's a half human and half Saiyan, his hair grew long with expedited time which the light purple-haired hair looks ever so cool on Trunks. Banpresto did an impressive job on the paint works with cool shading on Trunk's attire. Standing at 6.75" tall, this light purple-haired hardened warrior will have Dragon Ball fans from around the world clamoring to put this in their collection! Minor assembly required and includes a base.

Aliens Colonial Marines Collector's Edition Power Loader Statue















This is a one-time opportunity as the figure normally is an addition to a limited edition of the Playstation PS3 videogame. The Collector's Edition was also available to Xbox360. Inside the special Xeno Hive collector's edition box users will find a 18 cm tall statue is made of resin and comes packed in a classic window-box. An exclusive statue of the iconic 'Power Loader'by loved by fans when this exoskeleton forklift that beat the hell out of Xenomorph

Aliens: Colonial Marines is a squad-based shooter, set in the science fiction universe inspired by James Cameron's 1986 film. In the spirit of the 20th Century Fox movie series, the game plays out through the claustrophobic corridors of futuristic, labyrinthine, extra-terrestrial industrial constructs. Tense, creepy pacing is punctuated with vicious ambushes and explosive firefights. The game aims to relive the movie. 

To succeed in their deadly mission, each marine must know his role, and the squad must work together to survive. The game's story was authored by Bradley Thompson and David Weddle, partners who have previously written for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica sci-fi TV series. Aliens: Colonial Marines was developed by Brothers in Arms creator, Gearbox Software. 

I actually care less about the game but I totally head over heels for this collector's edition 'Power Loader' statue. I'm lucky that I got this from a private collector who is just selling the statue and keeping his game and the other memorabilia which is ideal for both parties. The statue is really cool, well detailed and appeared awesome in pics taken with the hangar background which came with the box set. The base of the statue bears the title of the game 'Aliens Colonial Marines' and like diorama of steel flooring. 

The Power Loader was piloted by a random Colonial Marine with Xenomorph climbing up the Power Load trying to attack him. The Xenomorph looks great and better looking that the marine IMHO. The Power Loader was nicely painted with the right chome at area it needed to be and cool expression of battle damaged, battle tested tarnishing of soots and greases. Not to mention the yellow blinker light on top of the Power Loader, those dangling power cables behind Power Loader and the tail of Xenomorph are some of the other features that caught my attention. What a tribute to the concept of Aliens!

Dragon Ball Z Ichiban Kuji Saiyan Space Pod Scotch Tape Holder / Dispenser

Authentic sticker on prize!








Other Ichiban Kuji prizes in this series included kid Vegeta 4.5”(12cm), 16cm tall Bardock with diorama, a 21cm tall Baby Goku in Saiyan space pod, several Saiyan Scouter wall mount items, Dragon Ball pillows, and even some Saiyan tails!

Released in 2009 from Banpresto Ichiban Kuji division, Prize F, comes the sensational Saiyan Space pod scotch tape holder. The pod is kind of small measuring only 2.5"(6cm), assembled by 3 simple parts. Even though it is not a high end prize, the whole idea is pretty interesting. The tape has Dragon Ball theme design like the face of Vegeta as shown and by looking the clear window of the pod, it as though Vegeta is inside it. There are actually many different tape designs to choose from random pack. It's sure novelty collectible that one would not bear to use this stationery.
