Bandai Classic Godzilla Millennium Figure

Bandai Creations U.S released figure of Godzilla 2000 based on the Japanese to capture a revamped / resculpt 'King of Monsters' in 2007. Takes a brilliant icon of monster movie history, and makes it even better. Made of hard vinyl so it extremely durable. Decent-sized size of 6.5" (height 16cm and length 24cm) which made it comfortable to handle and display. 

You bet I do have a lot of fun playing with this figure while photo-taking. This version looks really ferocious and definitely one of the best Godzilla design ever! Snarling head, the long tribal like nearly tattoo inspired looking back spikes. The Bandai Creation Godzilla 2000 figure has the spines more spread apart creating a more realistic look. Pose in a way it moving forward and roaring at the same time. Be warn of the ultimate Kaiju ^_^ Get ready to an all out brawl,ripping apart Abram tank and Gipsy Danger props! Damn! You should have added Evangelion!!!

This is a massive beast and the detail of rough skin and purple enormous spikes on the back looks phenomenal but on the other hand, the nails paint job may seems kind of sloppy. At certain angles, I feel that this Godzilla appeared a bit cross-eyed. The tail is curled at the tail end which I think increases the center of gravity hence increases its stability and also easier for accommodating into the packaging. 

The posture of the figure seems to give an impression that the tail was elongated. It's limited to 4 points of articulations mainly the horizon rotation of the T-Rey's arm and back and forth of the legs. Can't really bend the legs much as the pose would look awkward as well as throwing the figur off balance (Tip toeing right leg). The Bandai authenticity print is at the base of the foot. Reasonable priced and valued for money.

Pacific Rim Jaeger Gipsy Danger - NECA Series 1 Customised Painted

Alert! Alert! Kaiju Category 1! To fight monsters, we built monsters of our own! When an alien attack threatens the Earth’s existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace. A true fan of mecha Guillermo del Toro is to film this epic sci-fi action movie 'Pacific Rim', where the east met the west, combining the nostalgic 80's giant robot vs monster of Japanese concept play out in Hollywood style, accompanied with awesome soundtrack 'Horn of Doom'. Totally to my liking and cool that the movie managed to garner enough support and fans for a sequel. From the line of poseable action figures directly from the film, the NECA Gipsy Danger Action Figure is the ideal choice for fans and collectors.

Standing tall at 7 inches, this Jaeger Gipsy Danger action figure has been sculpted exactly to recreate the on-screen mecha. The chest and head give this a figure a distinctive look that on-screen Pacific Rim fans will be sure to appreciate. Not so posable but looks great standing in hangar pose good enough to make a great collectors piece or fascinating replica. Got mine preowned with the previous owner added more distinction to those dry brushing to the joints, the darker tones on the edges and bright orange nuclear turbine on chest, all reflected an amazing paintwork to capture the utmost realism. Unfortunately, the previous owner didn't thrown in the chain sword weapon which I believed this was the first release without weapon accessories.

The figure was well sculpt and faithful to the movie. My complaint was the problem with figure standing as the upper body weight tends to make the feet and ankle joints bend forward, causing the figure to fall after time. Mine fell from height and the neck broke. Good thing nothing couldn't be fixed with super glue. Not sure you guys have this problem or its just my bad luck. Nonetheless, I still enjoy having this figure a lot as an excellent tribute to the movie. I do not recommend this for young kids as the joints quality in this product is not the best. Seems like a common problem with NECA figures. NECA is better known for their attention to detail and sculpt.

Ikki Tousen 一騎当千 - Ryofu Housen 呂布奉先 - SRDX Series (Yujin) Figure

Warning, this post may contain adult material such as nudity, strong sexual content and explicit pictures. Ryofu Hosen 呂布奉先 is depicted as the reincarnation of Romance of Three Kingdoms strongest warrior Lu Bu with a very promiscuous personality, unpredictable, dangerous, a sexual predator and pretty much every unpleasant thing a person could be all rolled into one. She also has a habit for dressing skimpy as this pre-painted PVC figurine Super Real DX suggested. Ryofu is considered the strongest female Toushi in the Kanto Region in both the manga and the anime titled 'Ikki Tousen' 一騎当千, especially in the anime. 

Ryofu has green hair which is always tied into pig tails, and is mostly attired in her Rakuyo school uniform which consists of a short skirt, leather blazer, knee high socks, and brown shoes. This time round, Yujin manufacturer decided to go without wearing her school shirt and unbuttoning her blazer for this 6" (14cm) Bishoujo figure. The set includes a stand to place Ryofu Housen into a lively position. It can't hold itself without the assistance of base stand however blu-tag would do the trick. Mainly non-posable except that head can turn. 

Not a tall figure IMHO nevertheless, it well sculpt and painted. Ryofu Housen wears a blazer expressing her muscular body and her light tanned coloured skin. Maybe it would be nicer if she carries a weapon like the Lunar Crescent. The figure comes in a carded packaging instead of box. I don have the habit of keeping card package so I'm cool keeping it as a loose in my collection.
