Toy Review: Max Gokin Mazinkaiser

2011 08 07 20.07.58 590x442 Review: Max Gokin Mazinkaiser

A few weeks ago I blogged that I'll be writing toy reviews over at my friend's toy blog, The Rabbit Haul. Two weeks ago I did my first review, taking a look at Max Factory's Max Gokin Mazinkaiser figure. You can check it out here:

Remember This Guy?

Reposted from the Plastic Booty Blog, by 3DJohnny:
Gears have begun to turn, and by turn I mean its time to learn how to rotocast! Those heads are gonna be too heavy if they are solid resin so what a perfect time to learn a new technique and mix it with everything I have already learned. Ill post up some new pics once I get him all ready for the next phase!

And a big shout out to all the people who showed interest in THOR this year so far, I cant thank you enough!

So yeah, the next PLASTIC BOOTY figure we'll be releasing is Kerberus! THOR was well received during Comic Con thanks to everyone, so we're definitely looking at upping the ante with this next release!

Bandai spams Figuarts, turns Amiami into void

It's that time of the month (actually it was Sunday night)... that time where it seems the entire world decends upon one particular website turning it's servers into a veritible black hole for hours on end. It was time for Bandai to put up pre-orders for their new Figuarts and reduce one of the best Japanese toy shops on the internet, AmiAmi,to a slow-moving, buggy mess if you could even get to the website at all (9 times-out-of 10 you got a white screen with a 'try again soon' message). It's become a tradition.
