Three Kingdoms : CCTV Lu Bu + Red Hare (LEGO / PlayMobil Lookalike)

The infamous God-Of-War general in 'Romance of the Three Kingdom' some time in the late Han era comes in many forms and one of which in this adorable form. Taking a appearance of Lu Bu featured in the CCTV anime, M-Fig released this Lu Bu Figure which IMHO looks like a crossover between LEGO and PlayMobil. Adding more play value to the toy is the Lunar Crescent Halbert and Red Hare. Lu Bu can ride on his fast & furious Red Hare and when fixed to the hexagon base, Red Hare can stand on two legs for a more gungho pose. 

Lu Bu figure has head gear, long hair and an expression of piss-off Lu Bu ready to engage his enemies, in a cute way. The pole of Lunar Crescent Halbert is blue which I find a bit weird, nonetheless custom paint can be easily done if I want to. Lunar Crescent Halbert is made of softer material so you see it swopped a little. Still, its pretty fun that Lunar Crescent Halbert can be swapped between hands or be held by both hands.

Ultraseven Suit Version 7.2 Manga Appendix Figure

PVC figure that comes in a box as Special Package Edition bundle with the Japanese manga at Vol. 7

The head gear looks like a helmet worn by medieval knight but has a yellow visor

Ultraseven Suit Version 7.2 is taller that Ultraman Suit

Here's my second figure from Ultraman manga series is written by Eiichi Shimizu and drawn by Tomohiro Shimoguchi. The creative team responsible for 'Linebarrels of Iron'. That explains the mecha style of Ultraseven Suit. I'm more fond of non posable figure therefore I settle for this Manga Appendix Figure released by VIZ BOOKS. I would suggest those who prefers articulation to go for Ultra-Act x S.H. Figuarts. 

Ultraseven Suit Version 7.2 Manga Appendix is a PVC figure that comes in a box as Special Package Edition bundle with the Japanese manga at volume 7. In the manga, Ultraseven Suit Version 7.2 is worn by the no-nonsense SSSP operative known as Dan Moroboshi. He is actually taller that Ultraman Suit when I post them together. Ultraseven Suit Version 7.2 continue to possess the resemblance of the original Ultraman with the head blade. 

The head gear looks like a helmet worn by medieval knight but has a yellow visor. Ultraseven Suit Version 7.2 seems to have less metal armour plating compared to Ultraman Suit with plating mainly on vital joints area such as the shoulder, waist, ankle and shin. He also wears a gauntlet that protect right up to the elbow. Unlike other Ultraman Suit who fights without weapon, Ultraseven Suit Version 7.2 wield a “Specium Sword” katana like samurai "cheater". Lolz...

Star Wars: Ello Asty 3.75" Figure

The Abednedo pilot Ello Asty was known among his fellow Resistance pilots for his superb abilities behind the stick and occasional trouble remembering that a squadron must act as a team, not a loose collection of individuals. Ello flew with Cobalt Squadron in the early days of the Resistance and was a member of Blue Squadron during the attack on Starkiller Base. Ground fire ripped through his X-wing, ending his life. Ello Asty is a skilled if occasionally reckless X-wing starfighter pilot for the Resistance. I got this as an extra pilot for my X-Wing since it's on sale at a price I can't resist. Ello Asty 3.75" figure.The backpack combining accessory piece is a bit odd, but has more play value than some that come with other figures. The packaging card shows that the blades can combine with the weapons from the First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Snowtrooper packs (not included) to build an ultimate weapon of even greater galactic powerHe also comes with a small blaster pistol, which fits in his holster. 5 points, but within that context, there are still some very cool, well-sculpted figures. Asty is one of the cooler ones- what he lacks in posability, he makes up for by being a well-sculpted, detailed figure. I wish his visor were translucent as the solid visor looks less realistic.
