Tag: SUPER SENTAI
It's time for a brand new edition of Toy Review Tuesday featuring Liv Moore from iZombie with a bonus throwback to make up for all the time I've been away: the Deluxe Ninja Megazord.
Okay I know this is late but I was doing those Star Wars Round Table videos which you should totally go watch. Getting caught up on some of my reviews I've missed out on. So yeah this toy review is taking us to the roots of Super Sentai. This is Akarenger from Himitsu Sentai Gorenger. Yes all the way from 1975 The leader of the team Akarenger is represented in plastic and paint glory from S.H. Figuarts. Overall I like it just because this is the history of a genre that I absoltely love and outside of Japan no one has probably heard of it. The good news is you can find these old school episodes online and it's kind of great to see the old cheesiness of it all.
Time to get back to normal around here. After back to back weekend cons it's good to finally sit down and talk some toys again. So A-Kon 26 was last weekend and it was a blast to say the least but you all know I can't leave a con without something and I wasn't disappointed by the Bluefin Tamashi Nations booth. S.H. Figuarts at retail price? Yes please! Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon and Son Gohan are great additions to my collection. Also I picked up some Super Sentai stuff from my ninja bretheren and here's a look at the transformetion device of Star Ninger frrom Shuriken Sentai Ninninger
I picked up one of the Super Robot Chogokin's at Animefest one year and now having three of them I can see why these are very popular figures. Now normally I won't get a toy that doesn't combine like the source material does but these guys are so well done I'm more open to this line.
