Got this guy in just before last weekend and this is definitely my most favorite kit to date(so much so i bought two,another to weather up).

I love the sculpt and finish. I am almost 100% positive Bandai just scaled down their fantastic 1/6th scale perfect model Chogokin 12pm/Tamashii Nations C3PO figure(which i picked up recently).

The only painting i did to this guy was first, the wires on the back of the knees which can be swapped out with chrome covers for alternate looks and the restraining bolt on the additional swappable chest plate,painted the wires on the abdomen a mix of white, red,silver and gold and also painted the raised panels on the palms gold, same goes for the arm pistons and a nice dry brush of gold over 3PO's grill lining over his optics.

Definitely preordering the Biker Scout even though the Black Series set is great and i really hope Bandai gives us IG-88 and a Snowtrooper soon.

The Toys - Snowtrooper Reviews! / Bandai Star Wars figure model kits

Not much of a written review, just showing off how beautiful these kits turned out(especially Vader), the sculpts blow away even some higher end collectibles and these are easily the winner in both scale,sculpt and over all value compared to anything we've got in the Black Series line so far in my opinion.

I assembled and painted Vader and the Droids, Stormtrooper needs no paint, just decals were applied.

Droid attachments are not displayed in the pics below as I have yet to paint them all.














Can't wait to assemble Threepio later this month when he gets released.

I got in the Sideshow 1/6th scale R2-D2 a few days back and i must say it is a very nice piece, best R2 high end figure to date.

I have no major issues with it, the dome seam line that people are talking about just doesn't stand out at all on my figure and this comes with a nice array of accessories to boot while surprisingly for it being a Sideshow figure, i feel they really got the scale right where Medicom failed, and the overall sculpt and detailing really gives this an authentic screen accurate look even if some of the weathering is not bang on to the OT.

My only nitpicks would be that i wish they painted the body white or eggshell white whatever it supposed to be then apply the right blues/silver and weathering,and some of the paint apps could be a bit more bold and clean, plastic(mainly on the body) feels similar to the type used on their clone trooper figures.


I am really dying now to have a Johnny 5 from Short Circuit in this scale now, wish Sideshow would take on that project.

http://www.starwars-tw.com/replica/saber/tomy/tomysaber.htm  <-- they must have only been sold in Asia but, i must say they are really bright and the blade looks smaller then the MR FX sabers, wonder if i could find one on Ebay or something.

Non-Star Wars Toys / Mezco 1.5 Hell boy: Officer Kroenen
« on: January 15, 2005, 10:39:08 PM »
Picked this up friday night...this figure is absolutely stunning..so much detail and a extra set of hands and, hat is removable along with his mask..articulation is great and the atention to detail of his Nazi uniform is spot on -the red arm-band,his trenchcoat fits really nice and has like a leather look and feel to it,one set of hands has his blades out, the other are just the plain hands with his right hand set to hold his Luger..great accessories and sculpt is amazing..even with the mask off...they make more figures like this and they are by far kicking Mc farlanes butt with this quality.

Wampa Cave / Revenge Of The Sith Obi Wan figure preview

No stupid action pose which is great...face looks kinda sloppy on the paint..but..i like the sculpt kinda...pretty good articulation for the first wave having action feature and all,why does he have is older saber with the newer one to go on his belt...strange..i think the second wave with Obi-wan will be much more promising and i hope it comes with a ingnited version of his new saber..which was seen in ANH.
