Well, after admitting that I am pretty much a fan of the ninja mythos presented in the old G.I. Joe comic books, it would be not much of a stretch to assume that Snake Eyes is another of my favorite Joes. And for the most part that would be correct, although not to the point of unabashedly praise any action figure made of this character.
Thanks to Tformers sponsor Ages Three and Up's Facebook we have a first look at images of the Fansproject Munition and Explorer Crossfire 02 Reissue Asia Bruticus Colors kits re-issues. The new versions have feature Generation 1 colors that give them a fresh new look. As usually, these sets are quite popular so get yours before they sell out. Check out the images of Fansproject Munitioner and Explorer Colossus below now for more details.
Thanks to Impossible Toys who have posted video previews that demonstrates the transformation process for their Tetra Squadron figure. The new toy pays homage to the G1 Starscream and Seekers's Cybertron alternate mode that was shown in the initial More than Meets the Eye cartoons. Impossible Toys will be offering thre figures TRNS TS-01 Banshee / NOT Starscream, TRNS TS-02 Rebelor / NOT Thundercracker and TRNS TS-02 Prankstor / NOT Skywarp in the near future.

You might have noticed I’ve been posting quite a bit about all of the new Barbie toys for 2013. From the new Color Chalk Hair Barbie and Digital Makeover Mirror to the Birthday Wishes Barbie and Digital Dress Barbie, there is a lot to be excited about. We all know Barbie loves pink and colorRead More
I am, however, fuzzy on the value of certain other toys --and I bet some of you guys are too. There have been so many times that I've wondered what exactly the manufacturer was thinking; wouldn't it be great to have the chance to ask?
Vannen has announced a new licensing partnership with Cartoon Network to release watch designs based on the hit cartoon - Regular Show. The first release is a limited edition watch (300 hand-numbered pieces) featuring the greatest band that never was - Mordecai and the Rigbys. The Mordecai and the Rigbys watch retails for $75.00. And [...]
With GSC's second version of Tenshi from Angel Beats! due to ship to customers soon, Asahiwa has put up some shots of the final production version and I have to say she's looking as stunning as ever! Compared to the original preview it seems like GSC have added even more detail to her amazing wings and sharpened up the paint job. The only duff note is that horrible sandy beige base, which is utterly out of place against the pale palette of the rest of the figure.
More interestingly, the large seam lines on her dress which marred the prototype have vanished without trace. The reason for these was that the original design was actual cast-offable, something which seemed out of place for both the character and GSC's figures in general. Speculation seems to be that the feature has been removed altogether, which would be an interesting design decision, albeit an unfortunate one for those who bought the figure on that promise.
Those of you who were lucky enough to snag orders during the exclusive period should be receiving shipping notifications very soon. I'm excited for mine to arrive, although I think I'll be spending some time with a white spraycan and that base before she goes on display.
Over the weekend, PGPoA moved to a new server. The server is run by another toy-oriented website, and yes, there will be something of a partnership developing over the next few months, but I’ll save all that for later. A few Poesters may have figured out who it is based on some hiccups over the [...]
After a one-week break due to being busy, Custom Made Monday returns! This week's edition brings a certain flavor to it ... a very heavy gaming flavor. Whether you're a fan of the classics or more in tune with the modern titles, there's a little something here for you among the regular slideshow of spotlighted customs.
Well, what are you waiting for? Follow me and we'll take a look at all the amazing customs on display this week!
There are so many games on the market that get the gears moving in your brain, including Scrabble, Bananagrams, Trivial Pursuit, and Boggle. But what about those of us who didn’t major in English in college or don’t have a plethora of interesting facts stored away for a rainy day? MindWare has the answer… or [...]

We finally got in a production sample of Diamond Select Toys’ new Star Trek: Nemesis edition of the U.S.S. Enterprise-E, so we thought we’d take some photos to show off the ship’s paint job and lighting effects! This new version of the E features a completely different paint scheme from DST’s original model of the [...]

Unpopular opinion time--I actually enjoy Naruto, and I think it gets a lot of bad rap just for being a fairly standard shonen series. Fortunately there are those that give it due recognition, like Tsume releasing this "Undefective Bonds" version of heroine Sakura this August.
It's a shame she's limited to only 600 pieces, because this is a piece that definitely deserves to be in everyone's collection. Standing on a defeated pile of Sasori's puppets, it conveys the strength that Sakura's got when she puts her mind to it. It goes without saying that the quality is top notch, and is certainly worth the asking price of €279. Act fast and get your order in while she's still around!
[Pre-order at Tsume]

The latest in the Masterpiece line is now available to pre-order, Okama's lovely but awkwardly named Skipping Maid-san. There's some variety in the pair, with a darker limited edition version if the default is just a little too cheery and perky for your tastes. Plus, unlike many variations that are simply palette swaps, the limited version comes with an entirely different hairstyle as well.
Personally, I love the darker outfit, but the default's gorgeously wild and brightly colored hair has me sold on the spot. It fits her upbeat expression well, and I'd love to see the two swapped and have her lend a splash of color to the limited version.
I do find the choice of storage for her alternate tops a bit odd, to say the least, but it's not as if one has to leave them in place. Whichever your tastes, both girls will be available in June for about ¥7,800.
TazX has released a new 3" custom Dunny. Named "Mecha-Human", it's currently available to purchase for $50.00 (including free shipping). Also, he's set up a deal where you can pick up this and two other customs for $120.00 ($30.00 off buying the trio).
