Continuing from Part 1, this time with the figure in its battle-damaged appearance which it took on in most of the movie.
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. I got mine in September through Amiami which ridiculously overcharges on foreign toys. Apparently it is now unable to sell Hot Toys stuff so while there is no more convenient avenue for me to destroy my wallet it also means goodbye to crazy prices.
This set came out in June I think, but I combined it with another order that got delayed for months until Amiami decided to not let me drag any longer and wanted payment. I couldn’t modify the order either so I had to pay shipping for just one item that weighed nearly nothing.
Another week without reviews. I should have split last week’s post for consistency. Here’s a few pictures of the Rider Wear set by Pop Toys.
While my battered wallet is appearing to take a well-deserved breather amidst these few slow weeks, I’ve been spending time outside instead as summer is almost reaching its end. In the meantime, I dug up some not-so new pictures of some of my 1/6 figures in my slowly growing collection of clothing.
Last week I said I was running out of material to review so I went to dig this up from my pile of boxes and take some pictures of it.
No, this blog isn’t turning into 1/6-only content. Yet. Back then I got the first figure from Original Effect and complained about how horrible it was. One year later I willingly got ripped off again by ordering the Reborn Body from Amiami. Has the company’s quality control improved over the past year? We’ll see.
Marking my return to this otherwise dead blog is a little review of the Hot Toys MMS Diecast War Machine Mk 2. I’m new to the Hot Toys line so I think this is one of their first few diecast figures. A normal figure by them already costs a kidney so this one naturally cost a couple.
If you read my previous post you would have seen the gorgeous promotional pictures of this figure. This is one of those toys with an original story, following the trend set by 3A. I didn’t really bother with the story since it wasn’t free to read but I liked her design and threw in an order even with the insane marked up price on Amiami. After some reading I learnt that this was a new company and no one was sure how the final product would turn out. When it was released people complained about the spotty QC, and one really big problem. It’s not 1/6 scale.
So I didn’t prepare to do a proper review of this thing as I opened the package right after receiving it just to see how bad it was. Most of the pictures were taken using my phone instead.
It all happened when I saw pictures of this particular figure. (in b4 Nazi slut)
