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.

Ichiban Kuji Banpresto 2011 Prize - Dragon Ball DBZ Broly Ichiban Kuji Strongest Rival Figure Statue

Some may feel that Ichiban Kuji Banpresto prize figure are generally inferior to those toy companies, that releases figure that cost big bucks! Not necessary so especially this highly sought after Prize A - Dragon Ball DBZ Broly figure statue, measuring approximately 12" (26cm) in height. So much so there were also knock-off released to meet the demand! This figure is getting rare and the price appreciation is still climbing up. I got mine, loose which is pretty ok cause I don't really like the big and hollow Ichiban Kuji packaging anyway. 

Pre-painted and made of PVC material, the statue looked so good that you would think its a cold-cast statue. I personally think that this is by far the best Broly statue, official released product. The figure illustrated the raging Broly in his insanely massive Super Saiyan mode, a villain that I really enjoyed a lot, still powering up! The accurate sculpt is definitely gorgeous from face expression to those nice cutting, bulging muscles! Look at those muscle shades toning! He's a monster! 

The base was also awesome like Broly's powering up, pushing the rocks away. Everything seems like a statue diorama! The underside of the base bears the Banpresto license and the year of released 2011, when Ichiban Kuji Strongest Rival series figures were designed to correspond with the anime the released of anime Dragon Ball Z Kai series at that time. The statue looks so good that I only have praises for it! I just love it! Its a really great Broly figure and I'm glad having it added to my collection and this one looks absolutely incredible!
