Power Rangers Sentai Hero AKA Mighty Morphin Green Dragon Ranger 6" Vinyl Figure








The paint job of the Dragon Dagger and holster is not as neat on close up as the black paint smudge over to the green suit. However the Ranger Coin is sharply moulded. 

The authenticity markings are found on the underneath of the feet. 

It stands approximately 6", slightly taller than those vinyl Ultraman figures, also released by Bandai. 

Go! Go! Power Ranger! It's Morphin! What a sensation from the 90s! Dragon Ranger (Mighty Morphing Green Ranger) is the coolest of all 6th of member of the original Power Rangers team IMHO. Who won't love Tommy Oliver, from the universe of the American live action television franchise Power Rangers. Green Mighty Morphin Power Ranger is most noticable because of the chrome Dragon Shield. This variation on add-on is perhaps the main reason we can relate to Mighty Morphin Green Ranger! Such a cool thing to have for any Power Ranger or Sentai fan! This Power Ranger train isn't stopping any time soon. For those who like nostalgic collection like me would appreciate vinyl figure such as this. 

It stands approximately 6", slightly taller than those vinyl Ultraman figures, also released by Bandai. The paint job of the Dragon Dagger and holster is not as neat on close up as the black paint smudge over to the green suit. However the Ranger Coin is sharply moulded. The authenticity markings are found on the underneath of the feet. It also marks that 2011 is the year of its released. Simple standing figures with whopping 3 points of articulation as most of the vinyl figures did (arms and waist). Vinyl is durable and allows for lifelike moulding of helmet features and other details, which makes the material an excellent choice for collectible figurines.

Evangelion Shin Gekijouban Vol.3 Shikinami Asuka Langley Figure




Stands 23cm

Showing the gentle side of Asuka with her big blue eyes 



Sharp paint works with her unit 02 printed on and chrome on the screw ends

Comes with a cool base with NERV printed on



Willowing long brown hair with red clips















Don't you like adorable Evanglion gals in plugsuit. From the anime OVA Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance come this 8" (23cm) PVC figure released in January, 2011. If you see the pics, It stands even taller than the LMHG Unit 02 model kit. It looks picture perfect when places next to 'Rebuild of Evangelion Premium Figure Vol.1 Rei Ayanami' on a custom stand. 

Asuka is the Second Child ('Second Children' in the Japanese versions of NGE), who pilots Evangelion Unit 02. She is from Germany, but with an American father and a half-German, half-Japanese mother. In the Rebuild of Evangelion series of movies, her name is changed to Asuka Langley Shikinami. 

Beautiful sculpt by Takashi Tamotsu engaged by SEGA for their prize item aka Evangelion Shin Gekijouban Vol.3 Shikinami Asuka Langley Figure.  Featuring the model slim Asuka Langley in her red hot plugsuit with shading on it. Facial sculpt shows the gentle side of Asuka with her big Eurasian  blue eyes. Willowing long brown hair with red clips. Sharp paint works with her unit 02 printed on and chrome on the screw heads. Comes with a cool base with NERV printed and words that says 'God's in his hand heaven, all's right with the world'.

Box Diorama Gundam Document File - Gundam 0080 ( RGM in a Zeon Box)



 "RGM in Disguise" or "RGM in a Zeon Box"?

The green box itself is already a great prop for photography as it is design like a military storage container bearing the Zeon logo. 

Diorama of a space hangar with a battle damaged RGM Type-C

The inner side of the box is painted grey with panel lines drawn. 

3 maintenance crews in astronaut suit opening the cockpit to check on the pilot.






Should I call this "RGM in Disguise" or "RGM in a Zeon Box"? Whatever it is, the concept is simply a stroke of genius by Megahouse way back in 2004! It is official released as "Diorama Gundam Document File - Gundam 0080" with a total of 10 in a set and I only pick this because there is RGM in it. The green box itself is already a great prop for photography as it is design like a military storage container bearing the Zeon logo. 

The best part is what's inside and peek a boo is a diorama of a space hangar with a battle damaged RGM Type-C that has lost its limbs except the right arm. The inner side of the box is painted grey with panel lines drawn. 

Nicely done in style and detailed with dents, the exposed cable from the wreaked leg and weathering to the RGM. In addition, we see three maintenance crews in astronaut suit opening the cockpit to check on the pilot. All in all a diorama compression in a 6cm (length) box, this is what I call impressive!

Katsuden Goes to Sentosa Marvel Sandsation

















Having one of the geekiest weekends last week from STGCC 2018 to Sentosa with my family. Complimentary island admission to the island via Sentosa Express. The queue and crowd is pretty crazy accompanied by school holidays. Enjoy the sun and breeze while taking a stroll along the beach while appreciating the Marvel graffiti. 

This is playing sand castle at an epic scale. The event is still on till 16 September 2018, Sentosa Sandsation, Southeast Asia’s biggest sand festival, returns bigger and better in a never-before-seen MARVEL Edition. Beyond Sentosa Sandsation, don't miss out on a plethora of MARVEL themed activities that are set to bring out the Super Hero in you, as well as sand sculpting workshops for kids aged five and above.
