SH Figuarts Zero

I’ve been a huge fan of the Megaman series of games and particularly liked the Zero and ZX series even though opinions on them were divisive. This time, Bandai has rendered the MMZ version of Zero as a Tamashii Web exclusive figure as a rival to the existing Kotobukiya plastic kit which seemed to be a disappointment, and the rare garage kit only found during Wonder Festival.

Hot Toys MMS Diecast Iron Man Mk 42 – Part 1

Big boys come out and play

This was an impulse purchase from almost a year ago. It was supposed to be released in July and the first batch seemed to have some serious QC issues.

It’s been a year…

…since I’ve moved here. Again it’s another review-less week, and I thought I’d do an introspective post instead. I actually had a draft somewhere which I never published because it was too messy, but I’ll try to tidy things up. As long-time readers of this blog would be aware, I have been living in Japan for a year now. Instead of blogging as usual, I went on a six-month hiatus after moving here where I lived a rather simple life without writing about it or about toys in general. However when asked about my impressions of life here I found it hard to collect my thoughts as I never wrote anything about it.
