Lots of goodies :) I can't wait to open these up and take pictures. Since I started this toy blog way back in July 2007 (my collection started much earlier in 1994), I haven't lost the passion for action figures. In fact, over the years, the technology and engineering that go into making these figures have improved by leaps and bounds and toy collecting is no longer an obscure and rare hobby but one which is very mainstream today, going by the number of specialty shops that have been set up just to deal with collectors who want to buy collectible figures, and the growing number of collectors who post and share pictures of their toys and figures on social media. That's a good thing because as long as there are collectors, more companies will step up and offer alternative options and more choices for collectors to pick and choose what they like. There are now so many toy and action figure companies offering so much varieties these days it's mind boggling.

This is the recently released Sentinel Tatsunoko Heroes Fighting Gear – "Casshan: Robot Hunter" 18cm action figure - see the final product pictures posted on my toy blog HERE. Sentinel is an up-and-coming company with lots of potential and product ideas which they are slowly but surely putting out, much to many collectors' delight. Their RE:EDIT Iron Man #05 Hulkbuster 25cm tall action figure is most impressive (see pictures HERE) as is their 12'Hero's Meister 1/6th scale "Shinjiro Hayata" Ultraman 12-inch figure (previewed HERE)
I've recently developed a liking for Square Enix Play Arts Kai 1/7th scale action figures. My recent purchases include DC Variant Hawkman (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE), Arkham Origins Batman and Deathstroke 10-inch action figures (posted HERE) and 2014 RoboCop (pictures HERE, HERE and HERE) so when I saw this older released Square Enix Play Arts KAI Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City Lupo action figure at a discounted price, I decided to grab it.
Art Figures AF-017 1/6th scale R.I.P.C. Rest In Peace Cowboy 12-inch figure is essentially Jeff Bridges as veteran lawman Roy Pulsifer who works for the R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department), a legendary police force charged with finding monstrous spirits who are disguised as ordinary people but are trying to avoid their final judgment by hiding out among the living. R.I.P.D. is a 2013 American science fiction action-comedy film starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. You can check out the preview pictures HERE
Virtual Toys 1/6th scale Weapon Advisor 12-inch figure seems to sound very ambiguous and non-threatening in the legal sense of copyright issues. The front of the box also does not show you what you are actually getting.
The back of the box however has a picture of a person who looks very much like actor Morgan Freeman which makes you realize that "Weapon Advisor" seems to refer to Freeman's role as Lucius Fox in the Christopher Nolan Batman films where Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox supplies the equipment that Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman uses for his fight against crime in Gotham City. I was sold when I saw the preview pictures (posted earlier HERE).
Devil Toys War of Order Volume One - The Secret Master 1/6th scale Limited Edition Collectible Figure was something that caught me by surprise. I was blown away by the preview / prototype pictures (posted HERE) and the price point made it all the more easier to commit to pre-ordering this figure. This figure looked much more interesting than ThreeZero's 1/6th scale CHAPPiE which was just out of my range - see pictures HERE.
Last but not least, there's this recently released Hot Toys MMS266 1/6th scale RoboCop (Battle Damaged Version) and Alex Murphy Collectible Figures Set. How could I not get this? Since the 1987 RoboCop movie came out, I've been wanting a 12-inch tall Alex Murphy in his police uniform. And then there's battle-damaged RoboCop with the exposed face which humanises him. Love these two and can't wait to review and take pictures of them. See the preview pictures HERE
That's all, folks. Check back for the review posts :)
