  1. Say yo Pwayers Toitles! Here’s your look at the NEW NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon Bebop and Rocksteady Two Pack!
  2. The best there is, best there, was, best that there EVER will be! Mattel is here with the Ultimate Edition Bret Hitman Hart figure. This is gorgeous! Having owned almost ever Hitman figure over the years since the 80's this takes the cake for most detailed and highly articulated figure that has been released. The Hasbro Hitman is fantastic for sentimental reasons. The LJN is great for his time in the Hart Foundation, but those releases left something to be desired. In my opinion, this checks all the boxes. Upon holding the box in hand, this feels like a premium figure. The entire unboxing is an experience. The red accents with special messaging on the inner flap of the box is a very nice touch! This is aimed at the adult collector with a price tag of about $30. This is well worth the money, as you get tons of extras that you don't get with a regular elite figure. This figure is in scale with other WWE basics and elite figures, only with more points of articulation. You get three heads. One with a closed mouth smirk. Another with the mid match open mouth scan. And the third being a serious scowl. The head swap is super simple as they just pop off with no effort needed. You also get three sets of hands that are very easy to change out. You get many combinations that you can do with one figure. Besides that you also get Hitman with his trademark black ring jacket! The articulation is nice with the standard head, arms, elbows, waist, legs, knees, boots, ankles and wrists. For a bonus you also have shoulders with sweet butterfly joints. This allows for cool and interesting poses that were not possible before. The tips of the boots bend for cooler poses and you get a side to side movement in the torso area. If I had to nitpick anything, it would be not having the shades be all pink, or having the decal be pink and not the silver shades that were included. Another area of improvement would be to include at least one head that didn't have the hair in his face. The colors on this figure are true to how he wore them in the 90's and are very vibrant. The paint splatter on his singlet is done very accurately. I really dig the skulls on the side of his tights, as something so small doesn't normally include so much detail. I would rate this figure release a 9.5/10 My only nitpicks would be the previously mentioned hair sculpt on all the heads, and the color of his shades. Even with those minor flaws, you should still really consider picking this up for your collection. Big thank to Mattel for sending this figure for review. WWE figures are available for purchase at out sponsor Megalopolis.Toys.
  3. The King of the Monsters gets a King Sized Release, Here's your look at the NEW Jakks Pacific Godzilla King of the Monsters 20" Long Godzilla
  4. Instagram @ajg232 With these SDCC exclusives Hasbro really seems to be celebrating the new guard and the old in the galaxy far far away. From the 6 inch Black Series Line we get the preview of the Sith Trooper from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. With a very strong follow up we’ll also be getting a look at a wonderful Luke Skywalker figure 3 Pack from the Vintage Collection 3.75 inch line. Both are great pieces for reasons both shared and unique. Sith Trooper: Star Wars The Black Series. Not much is known, as of yet, about this strikingly red stormtrooper. There is a bit of a blurb from Lucasfilm that can be found here and there on various fan sites. All that is to really be gleamed from it is that these stormtroopers are of a class all their own, under Kylo Ren, and that they have some sort of association with the Sith and the dark side of the force. On the surface there’s not much going on but it leaves fans with plenty to be excited about in the build up. For my money I’d say that throw away line in ep.7 about the First Order using a clone army might not be quite so insignificant. If the theorizing doesn’t hook you on this new trooper installment then maybe you can be won by sheer cool factor of which this figure has tons. Before you even get into the figure itself it should be said that it comes with an absolute arsenal of ranged and melee weapons alike. On the ranged side of things the new trooper comes with two medium sized rifles (One with a stock and one with a scope) along with what must be the sci fi fantasy equivalent of a mini gun. For beating up on all the Jedi scum our guy has a way cool reverse grip sword along with a similarly reverse gripped pincer of some kind. The only real negative in the accessories is how cumbersome the mini gun handle can be on whatever you deem to be the dominant hand. If you really want that guy toting full fire power the hand will be stretched to accommodate. Not the end of the world but a minor nitpick in this big pile of cool. One huge positive that might just be to my own taste is just how well he holds all the other weapons and that the tabbed leg holster functions perfectly. It’s very often the case that a figure can be pushed into the “great” category when the grip on the accessories is fully realized and when you don’t want it their there’s someplace to hold onto it. Now the accessories are very cool on this Sith Trooper but there’s something that’s a little more shocking on this figure. The articulation on this trooper far exceeds all expectations I had for an armored character. Did our guy drop his sword before he finished the fight? Well, it’s a good thing Hasbro made him a Tae Kwon Do black belt too. All joking aside the articulation is far better than I could’ve imagined. The torso joint isn’t revolutionary but to be honest if I tried to call it “limited” that just wouldn’t be an applicable adjective. The shoulders are equipped with butterfly joints. If you team this up with the deep cut single joint elbows all shapes and sizes of gun play are no problem. The legs are leaps and bounds better than I would’ve guessed by looking at the armor. The hips go way up just short of 90 degrees and the knees bend all the way back. Obviously, by the picture, the hips go way out to the side as well. The hands have a vertical gun style hinge the same way you’d want it in any trooper. Admittedly the head doesn’t move much with just a 360 horizontal swivel. The feet hinge in and out with a good ankle pivot the way all 20$ figure feet should nowadays. It should also be mentioned that the Sith Trooper doesn’t have anything particularly crazy going on in the scale department. He goes pretty well with everyone you’d want him to be in scale with. This figure can honestly be best summed up by the fact that it’s striking visually but secretly it’s impressively functional. If you want all the extra weapons I wouldn’t dissuade you from getting this SDCC version but when the standard rerelease comes through the articulation will still make that trooper into a whole lot of figure. Luke Skywalker 3 Pack: Star Wars The Vintage Collection Now, admittedly this pack holds a bit more nostalgia in many cases. Celebrating 3 iconic looks for arguably the greatest fantasy hero of all time this 3 pack is fantastic. What we have is Luke’s Death Star 1 stormtrooper disguise, the X-Wing pilot jumpsuit, and his Jedi Knight getup from the beginning of Return of the Jedi. Unlike the Sith Trooper just about everything that can be known is well known when it concerns the “son of Skywalker”. This is also my first look at the face printing technology being applied to the 3.75 inch figures and I have to say that it’s impeccable. Let’s start in simply with accessories. Each figure comes with a small set of their own accessories. Starting with trooper Luke he comes with the standard E11 blaster and the helmet to finish his armor. One thing that should be pointed out is that trooper Luke does have the holster for the E11 on the back of his belt and even though the thing is hollowed out and ready to go it really doesn’t seem like it's designed to actually hold the gun. With a good push it seems you can get the blaster a little less than halfway in. A little annoying but it’s small potatoes for a figure this good. Next we’ll look at X-Wing Luke. Very simply, he comes with a simple DL-44 blaster that he grips perfectly and his wonderful pilot helmet that we’ll talk more about in just a bit. Now the gun doesn’t have a spot to be holstered so that’s a bit annoying but nothing truly detrimental. Now what’s great about his pilot helmet is that it’s made of a very rubbery adaptive plastic. It makes the helmet unintentionally modular and great for other figures therein. If you wanna take your ROTJ Luke and do the 30 seconds of screen time with Luke leaving Tatooine to seek out Yoda on Dagobah, for the 2nd time then look no further. It’s very doable. Speaking of ROTJ Luke let’s talk about him. He’s the only Luke of the 3 to come with a lightsaber (His green saber to be specific). In addition to this he has the blaster he yanked off one of Jabba’s goons along with what is possibly the best soft goods I’ve seen Hasbro produce to date. The blaster fits in his right hand with no problem. The lightsaber goes in both without issue. Luke’s Jedi cloak is stitched in some way, shape, or form that makes it hug to his head in the exact right way. It’s truly impressive. Just to get it out of the way the faces on all three of these Lukes are magnificent. The old time GI Joe faces are officially a thing of the past. In terms of articulation each stands in a category all their own. All have good ball jointed heads with the exception of X-Wing Luke with a two sided ball joint and some magnificent head movement as opposed to being simply good. All have tried and true hinged shoulders with good reliably deep single joint elbows. All have hinged hands with the exception of trooper Luke who’s relying only on the 360 degree swivel. Both X-Wing and trooper Luke have good deep torso articulation with the feature being absent on ROTJ Luke though it’s admittedly not very missed. All but Pilot Luke have a waist swivel. Now getting down to the hips They all start the same where it’s a rotating hinge that you move in the right direction and then hinge in your preferred direction. Exceptionally, Pilot Luke also sports a slightly clumsy thigh swivel. Beyond that all 3 figures go down to some single joint knees and hinged feet. On the whole very well articulated. Some particularly good articulation comes from trooper Luke. The next time Vader is looking to aggressively hide an apprentice’s existence it’s important to note that trooper Luke does fine with some Gears of War crouches. Hasbro also made him a Tae Kwon Do black belt... for the good it will do him. For scale there’s not much to be surprised about with these 3 figures. Here we have the 3 up against a c3po from the Revenge of the Sith line along with a 5 inch Batman and a Pizza Spider-Man. Besides some points of articulation there’s not much that’s shocking when it comes to these 3 figures. All the same these 3 figures are great and classic in all the right ways. If you ever see any of these figures either single packed or in this great 3 pack I would highly recommend that you do yourself the favor.
  5. Big thank you goes out to Mattel for sending us out this very generous sample for review! The King of Strong Style is here with Mattel's Ultimate Edition action figure. Everything screams premium. When you first hold the box in hand, it feels much different than the typical elite style packaging. It has a red lining on the inside, a unique box shape, and an interesting bio on the back. This figure line is aimed at the adult hardcore collector. This fits among your other basics and elites from Mattel, only with tons more packed in with a $30 price tag. What separates the Ultimate Edition from the typical Elite figure? You get multiple heads. Each head comes with Shinsuke's signature expressions. You can do a walk out pose, or mid match open mouthed pose, or have one with him getting beating beat up by his opposition! You also get a plastic entrance jacket. You get two options, you can swap the jacket's arms, then swap in the regular arms, and now you have an entrance vest. You can get multiple looks with one figure. You also get three pairs of interchangeable hands. And like previously mentioned, you also get a pair of arms for match type scenarios. The colors seem to really pop out at you. I have several other Nakamura figures, but the colors seem very vibrant. So that is a big plus! You get all the traditional articulation that you typically get with elites, only that you get bonus movement as well! The extra movement you get in the tip of the toes. You can move the tip of the boots for kicks, walking, or cool in ring poses that you can recreate. You get this really awesome articulation in the shoulder area. It's a sort of cool butterfly joint that allows the arms to be bent back of some really fantastic poses. You also get a mid torso articulation point that allows the mid section to swivel from side to side. The traditional articulation points are full head rotation, bends at the arms, elbows, wrists, waist, legs, knees, and ankles. While this is the best Nakamura figure release to date, there are some drawbacks. The chest is molded differently to include that new butterfly joint articulation, but when you have him shirtless, he almost looks like he has a flabby torso and chest. The legs are also a bit on the thick side. Shinsuke always has worn form fitting tights and gear, so hopefully Mattel can correct this in the future. While it is not a perfect figure, this is still hands down some of Mattel's best work. I have been collecting the Mattel WWE line since 2010 til now and these Ultimate Edition figures are some of the most detailed figures that you will ever find. You are certainly getting your monies worth. I would rate this a 8/10. Once again, massive thanks to Mattel for this review sample!
  6. Mattel is back at it with another movie wave of 6” DC Multiverse figures, this time for the upcoming Aquaman movie opening in theaters on December 14, 2018. This wave consists of four figures and one Collect-And-Connect. The regular figures include Orb, Black Manta, Mera and Aquaman featured with a more classic look in the orange shirt and green pants. The Collect-And-Connect figure for this wave is a Trench Warrior, a nasty looking sea-creature army builder type. The packaging for these figures is the same we have seen with other recent Multiverse releases with the blue window boxes. A brief bio for each character is on the back. The figures continue to show design improvements over older Multiverse figures with improved articulation and sculpting detail. Most the figures have ankle pivot and double-jointed knees. They also feature the improved crotch articulation, no longer featuring those outdated side-hinge joints. The face sculpts for both Mera and Aquaman are much improved over the previous Justice League movie versions. Black Manta is probably the overall coolest looking of the bunch, featuring what looks like a hyped-up scuba outfit with a pretty comic book accurate helmet. I am disappointed they didn’t incorporate the same kind of red translucent plastic eyes as they did with the SDCC comic book version released earlier this year. Aquaman looks good overall but I wish they had painted the shoulder joints the same color as the rest of his shirt. The different shade of paint stands out noticeably on the figure. I like that they included the scar on the left eyebrow, and the sculpting detailing on the shirt for the chainmail and the texturing on the legs look good. Mera also has nice texturing on her outfit, and I like the metallic-looking paints they used on her. She is more limited in articulation than the others, only having single-hinged knees and no ankle pivot. Orb has nice sculpting details on his outfit, and I especially like the way his cape and helmet look. The pieces on his faceplate that stick out and the fin on the top of his helmet are made with a rubbery material so they won’t snap off, however they might come out of the package a little wrapped looking. Heating the material with a hairdryer likely will help straighten the fins out if that ends up being an issue for you. The Trench Warrior is very cool looking with nice sculpting and paint applications. I really like the head sculpt and that they gave it an articulated jaw. The three-clawed fingers on each hand also look menacing. The only real downside is that they made a character who I am pretty sure is part of an army to collect-and-connect which will make it hard to get multiples for those who want an army of these guys. For accessories, Mera has the most with a basic spear-like weapon and alternate hands that mimic her water-controlling abilities. I believe these are the same kind of accessories the previous Justice League movie Mera came with which was offered as an Amazon exclusive. Aquaman and Orb both come with Tridents with some nice paint applications on them, and Black Manta comes with a sword that is black. Manata also has a non-removable blade on his left arm that is made from a rubber material, so like Orb’s mask you may need to apply heat to straighten it out if it gets warped in the package. It’s good to see Mattel making improvements with their Multiverse line. However being completely honest, these figures still are a bit lacking in some areas like articulation when compared to similiar scale super hero action figure lines. That said, I will say there are enough positives here to warrant checking out if you are an Aquaman fan or a fan of the DC movies. These figures have started to see limited releases through select e-tailers and should start seeing a wider release in the coming weeks.
