I mentioned this when I threw up the Soundwave pictures, but here is the trio of gloriously redecoed MP releases.
Honestly with all the black and red, they go really well together. Something I forgot to mention when I put up pics of YotH OP, was that I really wish they had gone with black for his legs instead of blue, but really, it works nice.
Love these guys, it’s too bad there’s no crazy Datsun recolors they can do.

BUY HIS STUFF.


So do you remember back at the beginning of last year, I uttered a cryptic, “LOOK TO THE SKIES FOR SOUNDBLASTER’S COMING!” or maybe I didn’t exactly say that, and maybe you shouldn’t look in the skies because I don’t even know if dude can fly. But yeah. Soundblaster and Ratbat!

I wouldn’t have this guy if AmiAmi hadn’t gotten upset at me for ordering him on the 29th of March, and combining him to my April order. They still have plenty in stock, so I am sure they are just salty about having so much stock, honestly. So, I was said FINE HERE, HAVE MONEY THEN. And I got him today.

This is the second MP I’ve received since my refocusing, and I have to say once again, even though I got rid of the original, I absolutely love the redeco. The one new item from the set, Ratbat, is really nice and I have to say, even though the Laserbeak/Buzzsaw MP cassettes kill it, Ratbat is absolutely amazing. Nice paint, nice transformation, and luckily no more easily broken ears.

One thing that was peculiar I saw as I was opening the box was it was double taped. Normally I roll my eyes at people who throw a fit at double taped MP boxes (it’s a fucking toy, OPEN IT YOU COCKHOLE), but it made me a little on guard as I was messing around with Ratbat and Soundblaster. Upon seeing Soundblaster flawless, I was sweating that Ratbat would be the broken one. Nah. Both are fine. The manual has tape in it too, strangely, but everything seems to be fine. The only thing I can think of is if it was a return, they returned it because Soundblaster’s door sticks a bit (OH NO!) or they peed themselves at how tight his left hip’s outward movement is.

Which are my only flaws with this guy. I love him, I love the MP-13 mold, and I think that it is absolutely fantastic. I am glad to get him again.

The way the “double” door works is a little odd, you put what was the old like tech screen piece over the regular chest piece, and because the regular chest is red, and this piece is purple, it kind of just makes for an opaque window. Should have done both in purple, I think!

As an aside, all of the MPs I have now are all redecos, (didn’t get G2 Sideswipe in the group pic there) and I think they are all fantastic versions, if not improvements! Radical Repaint Squad assemble!!

All-New Ghost Rider is the best thing happening in Marvel Now! and I decided to have a go at making some fan art to show a bit of love. Had a good time fooling around with the colors.

Holy crap this is amazing!!

By now if you’re a Transformers fan, you are well familiar with the Masterpiece line, and the some half dozen (or better) releases of each MP-01 and MP-10. Starting with the MP-10 figure they were trying to make a consistent scale, and have done a pretty good job. However, in a lot of people’s eyes they have not done such a fantastic job with bringing the MP-10 mold to the US for an affordable price. The release in late 2012 was quickly snatched up by collectors and resellers alike, and fetches quite a bit on the aftermarket. I know, because I was not only one of the lucky people to find the Hasbro MP-10 in a TRU, I also capitalized on the high aftermarket price in the middle of last year. (along with MP Grimlock…) Hate me if you must, but money is a powerful draw, and to be quite honest, my profit was all the more validated when a few months later they announced that there would be a Year of the Horse reissue of MP-10, with different coloring.

I did miss my MP-10, I definitely wanted to get the YotH reissue, even though the coloring was unpopular (and people clamored for a “proper” rerelease). To be honest, my current state of mind pushed me in the direction of a kind of different Transformers collection. So, I decided to focus solely on Masterpiece Transformers, and with profits, I purchased this guy! He arrived super fast, I ordered him this weekend and he shipped yesterday, and arrived today. I was very impressed since they said it’d arrive between the 9th and 14th. The fact that there was a 20% off coupon and free shipping helped with the decision to grab him, too, making him even cheaper than BBTS’s pricing.

How is he? Well, if you don’t have MP-10, and you can afford this guy, you should. He’s fantastic. I love everything about the MP-10 mold, and there is hardly a bad thing to say. I had a bit of a struggle remembering how to transform him (his matrix really is exposed underneath in truck mode?) but worked it out fine, he’s not a chore like RotF Jetfire or something.

I love his red, the flash on my phone’s camera doesn’t really show it very well, but it’s this deep, rich red that I think works fantastic with the gold, black waist and elbows, and dark blue legs.The clear trailer is also awesome, and I think it works very well with him.

The only flaw I (and everyone, it’s in all of them sadly) had is that, as you can see, the axe was assembled backwards. Oops. Other than that, I honestly think he may be even better than my original one, his legs collapse much more easily, and I think he just looks amazing. MP-10 is truly one of the best Transformers ever.

We’ve hit 50 followers!!!

Thanks to everyone who follows me, it makes me happy to know there are a few people out there that really enjoy my pictures, it makes me happy every time I get a like or a reblog, (honestly my girlfriend is getting tired of it cause it’s all I talk about some days)

Again special thanks to:
D-Amazing- particularly for your shout out, but mostly for your inspirations shots, reviews and ideas that come with your blog, I love your material :)

The Ankle Rocker- you inspire many, and I have had to go out and buy toys just because I have seen them on your blog. As well as usually throwing a response my way when I ask something, it’s always nice to hear back from people :)

thedustiestdesk- I swear you have liked pretty much everything I have uploaded since you’ve started following me, I think you are currently my top follower, and that’s definitely something I have to thank you for, seriously, it means a lot :)

thedailyfigure- you have given me the ability to break out of my normal routine shots with the crazy bones album and then accepting my submission of the shoutmon and Ballistamon, I heavily thank you for showcasing my work on your blog

and lastly:

Gigabeetle: my buddy originally showed me your work about a year and a half ago, around the time I was just starting to buy figures. Your originality and comedy in your shots heavily inspired me to try toy photography in the first place. I am really happy to have started this hobby and it really is thanks to your blog, so again Thank You!

I hope by the time I have hit 100 followers that I have grown as a better photographers and I have grown closer to many of you, as friends and supporters. 

Thanks everyone!

You’re welcome. And you’re not the first person to notice me liking people’s stuff constantly and consistently.

Why do I do it (other than actually really digging all the stuff all of your fine folks post)?

That’s easy. I think it’s VERY important to let people know original content is appreciated and needs to keep flowing. OC is what keeps tumblr going, and the more of it there is, the better tumblr is! I want everyone who I follow and everyone who posts OC to know that there is at least one person who wants more. There is at least one person who thinks its awesome, no matter what you may think. There is at least one person who loves to see what you get just as much as they love to post what they’re getting!

Toys are fun. Video games are fun. Art is fun. Collections are fun. Cosplay is fun. We all need to have fun, and I want to share in your fun with you!

So yes, please, keep posting and keep being totally awesome. You deserve it!

(Also, to be included on a list with the likes of people like D-Amazing, Ankle Rocker, thedailyfigure and Gigabeetle feels pretty rad, I have to say, those dudes are all way cooler than I ever would hope to be, everyone should follow them!)


Yeah this is kind of… a cop out I guess, but here are the seven (!) Robot Damashii I got in today!
The Hi-Nu Gundam is awesome, and very bulky. I am pretty sure his fin funnels and backpack setup weighs as much as the figure does. I like both of the weapons, and the way the funnels work is really nice, they have a lot of posability, and really so does the entire figure for being so big.
The Sinanju is the early release, I got it for a really good price (<2000 Yen), and he has a ton of accessories, he was a great buy for that price, I finally bit after seeing a string at 2400 Yen or so. I love his back thrusters and how they pop out a bit, and how his rile stores on his back is great too. 
The Perfect Strike Gundam is much improved over the Strike Freedom I got last month, which I bothered with for all of fifteen minutes or so, before being disappointed and selling it. He has a ton of stuff too, and just about everything can fit on him at once, which I love in RD. If he isn’t the same body as the Testament Gundam, also, he’s VERY similar in articulation, which is a huge plus, I love it!
The F91 is and always will be amazing. This version is just a delicious translucent plastic, and it comes with what I believe are swirling beam saber effects pieces. One thing they maybe changed or I didn’t realize is that the crest on the alternate head is not only removable, but it is a nice soft plastic. I’ve always loved the gun gimmick on him, and am glad to have this RD again (albeit in a different format).
The Den’an Gei is a nifty little figure, and I am very glad to get this one. He has a good range of motion, and that black color on him is absolutely AMAZING. Missed a Den’an Zon Black Vanguard tonight on AmiAmi, kinda bummed about that one as it’d have been awesome to go with him.
The Bolinoak Sammahn is everything I could have hoped for, and I am glad to continue the Ver. Ka releases. I really like his claw and the way the beam axesabers store in it, plus his articulation is fantastic. His cod piece is articulated even! The second head with the shiny dome is awesome.
And last but certainly not least, the Barzam. Oh man. I LOVE this guy. From the way the beam sabers store in the forearms, to the (if only slightly) movable mono-eye, he is amazing. Stupendous. Magnificent. I really enjoy this figure, his hips are on a really unique joint, and it just lends to all sorts of great movement. I can’t wait to pick up the next couple figures I want from the Ver. Ka series!

In an odd sort of double review (hey, they’re both Figma, right?) here are two Figma from my box, Futayo Honda from Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere and Indiana Jones from… yeah you know where he’s from.

Futayo I know very little about. Probably more like nothing. So why did I get her? Because she can have a massive spear and spears are awesome and she looks cool. She is pretty neat, her skirts move so you can move her legs freely, and even with small feet she seems to balance nicely. The giant version of her spear is… uh. Really really big. Like a foot long. She has a lot of cool accessories, the little effects bits are nifty looking too, and I am amused at the one in her hair.

Indiana Jones is a nice figure. He has good articulation, awesome accessories, a great sculpt, and 99% of him looks great too. Except his face. I saw pictures of him and was like, “Oh, he just looks bad in pictures, I’m sure he’s fine in hand.” Well. He looks like a very very clean shaven (but still somehow dirty as heck), and fatter Harrison Ford. So. Yeah. I mean it’s not the worst likeness of all time, but it’s not great. The rest of him though is really nice, I just wish his holster held his pistol too. Oh, and what in the hell is that second set of eyes for anyway?

They’re both nice figures, really solid efforts!


What does one say about perfection? Okay, near perfection, that’s a bit of hyperbole, but I mean, you guys know if you already have him. You know what’s up.

And for those of you who don’t, who are interested in Figuarts? Do it. Do yourself a favor and grab him. I don’t care how much you hate the design. I don’t care if you think he looks funny (and if you do either of those, wtf, seriously?), and I don’t care if you have to sell bodily fluids. DO IT.

I will begin by pointing out that even though yes, they changed the wrists, no, they’re not any easier to swap. At this point I am absolutely baffled why they changed the wrists. Everyone and their brother assumed it was due to how easy it is to swap Figma-style wrists. Yeah that’s not true with Kabuto here, they’re just as difficult (maybe even more so). And instead of the risk of snapping the peg, which as I have pointed out in the past is getting a LOT better, you run the risk of ripping the peg out of the hand instead. Which not going to lie, makes me a LOT more worried. But with that said, the storage system is really nice. compared to a Figma, the Figuarts hand tree is modular, and each hand tree piece holds four hands. Have 9-12 hands? No problem, give them a third piece. As for range of motion? I don’t really think that it is hampered in any way to be honest, in fact I think it lends more to hands that can go in a ninety degree angle perpendicular to the wrist. (Maybe that’s the reason?)

Anyway, as far as other articulation, he’s superb. As others have said, the shoulders remind me a lot of Blade King’s, a bit different but still amazing and mobile. Does he suffer from lack of die-cast feet? Nah. I want to kiss whoever decided that instead of using the pull-out hips (which can and do break!) they would do the Blade and Kabuto / 2.0 bodies with the “fixed” ones, and just give them more range. That makes Kabuto 2.0 instantly one of my favorite molds. Redo the rest of them, please, and Hibiki when? (speaking of which, where was end of March Japan Time? Bizarre!)


MiniPla ToQ Oh!

When I went into purchasing MiniPla with Kyoryuger, I expected something like ToQ Oh here. I had heard stories of how amazing the articulation was, and how awesome they look, how fun they are to build. Sadly, Kyoryuger sort of failed big time in the articulation department, but gladly ToQ Oh makes up for this and then some.

Elbow joints, shoulder joints, swivel hands, a waist joint, hips that have a huge amount of range, knees and even articulated feet, I don’t mean to be one of those guys who points out everything that is obvious, but I feel on something like this, it needs to be said. ToQ Oh is a very expressive little robot.

Every single train is single color with stickers, with the sort of exception of Yellow Ressha who comes with the Fumikiriken, which is in black plastic in contrast to her yellow. All the colors are very bright, and they just look amazing.

One of the best parts of ToQ Oh is he can combine just like he does in on the show. It limits the articulation, but it is really awesome that it has the ability to do so.

ToQ Oh is a lot more enjoyable than Kyoryujin, and I can’t wait for set two!
