NECA Pacific Rim Delux Otachi Flying Version

July 5, 2016

NECA Pacific Rim Ultra Deluxe Kaiju Otachi Flying Version Action Figure, 7″ is one of my favorites in my case. While it may only be 7″ tall it’s wingspan is nearly 2′. This figure sits nicely in its stand and I’ve had no trouble with it at all. The detailing is very nice and the coloration also is nice. This Otachi is taken straight from the movie and her battle…

New Godzilla toys from BANDAI: Godzilla Toho Monsters Press Conference

July 1, 2016

I was cruising on the line and stumbled across these adorable little toys, which I totally want for my collection. The Godzilla Toho Monsters Press Conference toys from BANDAI are a line of figurines that are designed to go into the capsules of gachapon vending machines. Is it wrong of me to want to fly to Japan just to buy toys out of vending machines? These adorable little figurines are…

Pacific Rim Figures: Striker Eureka and 18″ Knifehead

June 30, 2016

As a long time Godzilla fan I have to say that Pacific Rim was the first major Kaiju movie in a long time. It felt like a Kaiju oasis in a vast desert. The renewed interest in all things Kaiju was a good thing and the influx of new and exciting action figures for my collection was eagerly looked forward to. Knifehead 18″ Knifehead 7″ I don’t often play with…

SH Monsterarts to release Shin Gojira Figure

June 28, 2016

SH Monsterarts is slated to release a Shin Gojira figure this year. I, personally, really like the new Godzilla design. Rumor has it that Shin Gojira (Godzilla Resurgence) is a full on reboot of the franchise. I actually think this Godzilla looks like he’s recovering from full body burns from a wildly radioactive source. This Godzilla, unless I miss my guess, is still raw, hurting, on radioactive fire. Take a…

So SH MonsterArts has a FigureArts division. Of course they do. For the 50th anniversary of Ultraman SH Figurearts is releasing an Ultraman 50th Anniversary Eddition figure.

Since Ultraman needs a foe to set up…

SH MonsterArts Battra

January 20, 2016

SH Monster Arts Battra is beautiful. The wings are striking and the patterning on the body is true to the movie in which Battra appears, as one would expect from SHMA. Finely crafted, to scale with all the other SHMA pieces, Battra comes with its own stand and makes a wonderful counterpoint to Mothra. I really like the red accents on the black body and the design that makes Battra…

Pacific Rim: Malestrom Off The Table

January 14, 2016

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Pacific Rim 2 is now off the table indefinitely at Universal Studios. This is sad, sad news. However there is a ray of hope. There is a rumor that Wanda, a Chinese conglomerate is looking to purchase Legendary Studios. As it turns out Pacific Rim did very well in China and if Wanda acquires Legendary Studios that may put a sequel back on the table….

Godzilla 1998 Coin Bank

January 11, 2016

Much to my surprise, I apparently collect Godzilla themed coin banks. This is actually kind of cool. Also, Godzilla accepts all donations so those pennies found in parking lots go right into Godzilla. Now there are a lot of cool Godzilla coin banks but this Christmas I got one that actually surprised me. First of all I didn’t even know it existed. Second of all–it’s one of the coolest coin…

Otachi Joins The Party

January 8, 2016

Otachi came to play with my other toys this holiday season but what with all the visiting friends and family, entertaining too, there wasn’t time to get her out of her box and put her on the shelf with the other toys. This, as we all know from Pixar’s Toy Story, makes toys sad. So this weekend I took the time to liberate Otachi from her box. Then came the…

Enter Mothra

January 4, 2016

Mothra is perhaps tied with Godzilla and Biollante for my favorite Kaiju. This is heresy I know and yet there it is. I even confess to liking the Mothra trilogy. Yes, I like it. I like DesGhidorah (Death Ghidorah) and the concept of a monster that feeds off of the life energy of plants and the natural world plays right into the strong ecological messages of Godzilla, Mothra, and even…
