You can pre-order this from Sideshow Collectibles

Aphrodite A is a giant mech originally built as a symbol for peace by Dr. Yumi from the remains of Aphrodite for geological research. Although this mech originally lacked weapons, it was later upgraded for combat with the Koushiryoku Missiles for offensive battle so that his daughter, Sayaka Yumi, could pilot Aphrodite A alongside her love interest, Koji Kabuto, in Mazinger Z.

Sideshow Collectibles and Threezero are thrilled to introduce the 15" tall Aphrodite A Collectible Figure from the hit Japanese manga, Mazinger Z. Aphrodite A features a metallic paint application that highlights the attention to detail and Threezero's signature weathering effects. The figure is fully-articulated, including the fingers, and includes light-up LED eyes, cockpit and afterburners on her backpack. Aphrodite A also includes Koushiryoku Missiles that actually eject from her chest. These missiles caused the unintentional destruction of Minerva X.

DAM Toys STGCC2014 Exclusive 1/6 Gangsters Kingdom Spade J 12-inch action figure Review II

continued from previous post...

Here's the Dam Toys GK001EX STGCC2014 Exclusive 1/6 scale Gangsters Kingdom Spade J 12-inch figure dressed in all black from flat cap to black hooded sweater over black short sleeve T-shirt with black jeans and black boots. Over the sweater Spade J wears his black locomotive leather jacket. Let's not forget his black sling bag as well. That's quite a few layers of clothing. I actually left out his scarf which wasn't black. You can check out all the contents in my part 1 review post HERE.


This time around, Dam Toys seems to have learnt from their earlier mistake by making the flat cap plastic molded instead of trying to do it using fabric because the paint of the fabric flat cap would rub off on the head sculpt and leave a nasty stain. Which is why many of us have left original Spade J standing without his cap on. Let's break down Spade J's wardrobe layer by layer. We have already seen Spade J with just his black T-shirt and silver chain necklace with his black jeans with belt and boots in the previous post. Let's see how he looks with his black hooded sweater.

DAM TOYS Gangsters Kingdom - Side Story - 1/6 scale Saxon 12" figure (CICF 2014 Exclusive)

Side Story: Saxon

The hope was promised with sweet taste, but life cannot escape from the bitter ending.

Saxon earned his position in the early years with several little buddies; the K of Spades was the youngest yet most ambitious one among them. Saxon had a dream of establishing his own kingdom.

Together the buddies snatched smaller gangs and swallowed their turfs; little by little they were getting closer to their dream. But the desire of human beings, driven by their greediness, became a monster; they could hold each other in poor, but not in wealth, till eventually death tore them apart… As the gang was only a few steps away from total success, the K of Spades turned away; Saxon was set up and sentenced for life, his wife and children were killed one by one. A desire devoured by another.

However, Saxon already prepared himself a way of escape; he stashed a batch of gold and diamonds before being locked behind bars. The K of Spades beat and tortured him, sent him enough death threats, but K could not get the answer. Saxon got used to all these, until the day he was diagnosed with cancer. He was getting old and skinny; time deepened the wrinkles on his face like a carving knife.


The K of Spades offered him a deal: getting him out of prison to spend his remaining life peacefully with best medical cares, in exchange for the hiding place of the treasure. Albeit hope always being sweet while promised, human’s fate cannot escape from the bitter ending of death. Saxon knew himself wouldn’t survive too long from his cancer, he did not expect any miracle in his remaining life, he was ready to die in prison. But he still held a faith before his inevitable end: revenge. Revenge on the K of Spades. Revenge on anyone related to K of Spades. Revenge. It is a tattoo on human’s heart, which does not fade and cannot be erased.

He made an appointment with the Diamonds family. This is the last thing he must do before his death...

The highly-detailed rapid-transport reconnaissance vehicle boasts a sleek design with a military grade repulsorlift engine, power cell, and simple blaster cannon for defense. Built for maneuverability, it features articulated foot pedals, engine flaps, and steering vanes to achieve the perfect action display, with or without pilot.

You can pre-order this from Sideshow Collectibles

From Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Scout Trooper Sixth Scale Figure.

Armed to provide rear-guard cover with their blaster and sniper rifle, the Scout Troopers are trained as efficient survivalists, equipped with lightweight armor, utility belt, sidearm boot holster, and helmets with enhanced macrobinocular view plates for efficient target acquisition. Displayed with a forest terrain base, or piloting the Sixth Scale Imperial Speeder Bike (sold separately), these loyal scouts are ready to be assigned to their post.

Incoming: ZCWO 1/6 scale United States Riot Police Sets A & B - Shawn & Mason 12" figures

Riot police may be regular police who act in the role of riot police in particular situations or they may be separate units organised within or in parallel to regular police forces. Riot police are used in a variety of different situations and for a variety of different purposes. They may be employed to control riots as their name suggests, to disperse or control crowds, to maintain public order or discourage criminality, to protect people or property, to function as a tool of political repression by breaking up protests and suppressing dissent or civil disobedience.

Riot police often use special equipment termed riot gear to help protect themselves and attack others. Riot gear typically includes personal armor, batons, riot shields and riot helmets. Many riot police teams also deploy specialized less-than-lethal weapons, such as pepper spray, tear gas, rifles that fire rubber bullets, stun grenades, and Long Range Acoustic Devices.


ZCWO 1/6 scale United States Riot Policeman "Shawn" 12-inch figure will come with riot helmet with shield, gasmask, police uniform, riot protective gear including body vest with shoulder protection, elbow pads, forearm protectors, leg protectors, police duty belt with pistol in holster, double pistol magazine pouch, handcuff pouch, baton / night stick, radio in holder, gas mask pouch, plasti-cuffs, baton, riot shield, loud hailer, various gloved hands. Riot Policeman "Mason" comes with a paintball gun! Can't decide which one is cooler. These are certainly not the ones seen recently in the civil unrest that lasted over two weeks in Ferguson, Missouri. Those were dressed in military gear and looked like they were going to war with the citizens.

Review 1: DAM TOYS STGCC2014 Exclusive 1/6 Gangsters Kingdom Spade J 12-inch figure

This is the Dam Toys Exhibition Exclusive Spades J (GK001EX) special color edition figure that was released at the recent Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention or STGCC 2014. This edition was limited to just 300 pieces and was only available at The Falcon’s Hangar, as the distributor of DamToys in Singapore. For my coverage of STGCC 2014 over four parts, you can check out my posts HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

This was actually the third Dam Toys Gangsters Kingdom Spade J figure to be featured by the company. The first Spade J caught many people by surprise because they didn't know about it or pre-ordered it so the released numbers were pretty small and limited, making it a rare and hard-to-find figure. You can check out my reviews HERE, HERE and HERE. Spade J "Ogier" Memories Version (version 2) was recently announced HERE and now this makes three, although this figure has arrived even before version 2 which has yet to be released.


What makes this figure different? Dam Toys actually bothered to put together a whole different outfit for this exclusive Spade J that is different from the other two. The only thing that is the same is probably the head sculpt and body. The fact that there were only 300 pieces released makes it even more special. Hot Toys release their Toy Fair exclusives all over the world at each different toy fair / convention / exhibition and you can even order them at Sideshow Collectibles so that makes it not so hard to get but this figure was only exclusive to The Falcon's Hangar in Singapore. I am just glad that I was able to get hold of this figure and am able to share the pictures with you guys.

Check out Original Effect OE 1/6 scale Heyar Adas 12-inch figure from animated Nano Core

This will be Original Effect OE 1/6 scale Heyar Adas 12-inch figure from Nano Core animated series (season 1). It will come with a 1/6 scale Head sculpt, 12-inch OE Teenie Body, Underwear, Outerwear, Shoulder Armor, Hands x 3 Pairs. Her entire getup / wardrobe including her legs and feet (high heel shoes) are sci-fi, staying true to the animation.

12-inch figures have certainly come a long way, even those based on the animated series / movies. In 2001, Palisades released a Dr Aki Ross figure from the "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" movie and she is a far cry from the figures of today (pictures HERE). Dr Aki Ross became the first computer-generated character entry in Maxim's Hot 100 for that year LOL


Other notable 12-inch female animated figures that have been released include: Ghost in a Shell / Stand Alone Complex Motoko Kusanagi by Medicom, released in 2008 (posted in my toy blog HERE and HERE) as well as Hot Toys MMS "Appleseed Ex Machina" 1/6 scale Deunan Knute fully pose-able figure (pictures HERE and HERE)

Dam Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6th scale Diamond 2 "Alger" 12-inch action figure Review II

continued from previous post...

Here are the complete pictures of Dam Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6th scale Diamond 2 "Alger" 12-inch action figure in full getup as he's meant to be seen. The previous post and review provided a look at what Diamond 2 wore underneath the black coat with fur collar as well as detailed shots and pictures taken of his other 1/6 scale accessories, including Black waist chain wallet, Knuckle Duster, shotgun, Fly knife x 4, Brown leather bag, Silver necklace, left hand wristbands + Palm / hand, right hand wrist support + Palm / hand, extra Palms / hands x 3, and sunglasses.

All you see here is just an angry and pi$$ed off fella bringing his pump action shotgun to bear on those he deems his enemies or whoever he's been called to dispose off for the good of the Diamond family, whose ties he has decided to be bound to after biting the hand that fed him. He's Spade no mo' "mofos"!


Diamond 2 may not know what loyalty means but who he looks like is Scott Edward Adkins, an English actor and martial artist best known for playing Yuri Boyka in Undisputed II: Last Man Standing and Undisputed III: Redemption, and as Hector in The Expendables 2. How close is the resemblance? Google "Yuri Boyka" and you'll see.

Review 1: DAM TOYS Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Diamond 2 "Alger" 12-inch action figure

Before we get to the Dam Toys Gangsters Kingdom STGCC Exclusive Spade J figure (see previous post), let's look at someone else from the same line by Dam Toys. This is the first Dam Toys Gangsters Kingdom figure that is not from the Spade family. Actually, he was but he became a turncoat and joined Diamond and became Diamond 2 (you always start from the bottom and make your way up the chain)

Alger, the 2 of diamonds, is the key that changes the power pattern of the four families. He used to be the sidekick of the J of Spades. Alger would betray the Spade family and join the Diamonds instead. And so the story goes...


I got this figure sometime back in August 2014 (see my haul HERE) but between taking pictures and blogging about all the exciting toy and figure news about upcoming products, I couldn't find the opportunity to post my reviews until now.

STGCC 2014 Haul: DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom Spade J & DC Direct Batman Beyond

I was at the Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention (STGCC 2014) last weekend and managed to pick up these two items :) one is the new and very exclusive (limited run of 300 pieces) DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom GK001EX Spade J which has already fetched USD400 on e-bay (completed sales). This is the first Gangsters Kingdom toy fair exclusive figure by Dam Toys and there was certainly very heavy demand for this figure which sold out pretty fast. The other is the DC Direct Batman Beyond 1:6 Scale Deluxe Collector Figure based on the acclaimed animated series "Batman Beyond" (also known as "Batman of the Future") that features teenager Terry McGinnis as a new Batman in a futuristic Gotham City under the tutelage of an elderly Bruce Wayne. I only got it because it was being let go at a good price :) For my coverage of STGCC 2014 over four parts, you can check out my posts HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.


Dam Toys has been doing a GREAT job with their Gangsters Kingdom series of 12-inch figures from the first released Spade J figure (which many people missed out on), followed by Spade 2, Spade 3, Spade 4 and the recently released Diamond 2 characters. In my toy blog post titled "The Gang's all here!", you can see the four Spade family 1:6 scale figures gathered together for a group picture HERE. I've also gotten the DAM TOYS (GK#005) Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Diamond 2 "Alger" 12-inch figure in August 2014 as part of my haul (posted HERE) and while I've taken pictures of it, I have yet to post them on my toy blog but will be doing so real soon.

Preview Original Effect (OE) 1/6 Reborn Female Figure Version 3.0 (Standard Pack) "XiaoYao"

I've already gotten the OE (original effect) 1/6 scale killer instinct SAM 13-inch female action figure (posted HERE, HERE and HERE) as well as the Original Effect (OE) Army Attractive series 1/6 Viola 13.5-inch female action figure (reviewed earlier HERE and HERE). I also have comparison pictures HERE of the two female figures, along with other 12-inch gals. I like these gals with their anime / manga head sculpts because they will be evergreen. Realistic head sculpts are nice too but as standards improve over time and the sculptor's sculpting skills get better, the older version head sculpts tend to look less realistic compared to the newer ones, prompting one to keep buying the newer improved versions. A fine example of this is Hot Toys Black Widow figure. Three versions have been produced so far (more will follow as long as she keep appearing in the upcoming Marvel movies). Check out the comparison pictures of Black Widow HERE.


Original Effect (OE) 1/6 scale Reborn Female Figure (Version 3) Contents list: 1/6 scale Female Head Sculpt, Reborn Body, Optional normal hands (1 pair), Optional sword-holding hands (1 pair), Optional gun-holding hands (1 pair), Optional clenching hands (1 pair), Optional modeling hands (1 pair), Feet (spike heel) 1 pair, T-shirt (with Killer Instinct's logo), Underwear

Anyone called for a house doctor? Belet Toys 1/6 scale Rogue Genius Outfit and Head Sculpt set

House (sometimes known as House, M.D.) is an American television medical drama that originally ran on the Fox network for eight seasons, from November 16, 2004 to May 21, 2012. The show's main character is Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), a pain medication-dependent, unconventional, misanthropic medical genius who leads a team of diagnosticians at the fictional Princeton–Plainsboro Teaching Hospital (PPTH) in New Jersey. House was among the top-ten rated shows in the United States from its second through its fourth season. Distributed to 66 countries, House was the most watched television program in the world in 2008. The show received numerous awards, including five Primetime Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, a Peabody Award, and nine People's Choice Awards.


At first, the producers were looking for a "quintessentially American person" to play the role of House. Bryan Singer in particular felt there was no way he was going to hire a non-American actor for the role. Singer was very impressed by actor Hugh Laurie's audition tape and his performance and commented on how well the "American actor" was able to grasp the character. Singer was not aware that Laurie was English, due to his convincing American accent. Laurie credits the accent to "a misspent youth [watching] too much TV and too many movies".

Pre-order Thor: The Dark World 22-inch Premium Format™ Figure by Sideshow

You can pre-order this from Sideshow Collectibles

"He will bring order to the Nine Realms and then, yes, he will be king."

He promised he would return, and now he has! From the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Thor: The Dark World Premium Format™ Figure.

Based on Chris Hemsworth's thunderous return as the Mighty Avenger, Thor has sworn to protect Earth and the Nine Realms once again, this time from an ancient enemy that threatens to plunge the universe into darkness. Embarking on his most perilous journey yet, the Asgardian warrior brandishes the legendary Mjolnir, and dons his magnificent newly designed armor, complete with dramatic flowing red cape. As the God of Thunder prepares to unleash a storm of fury, the very earth quakes beneath his feet, and he must find a way to save us all.


Now that we have seen Chris Hemsworth as Thor, can you imagine anyone else playing the role? When actors play their role so well, do they get stereotyped and boxed in, so much so that they become typecast and are unable to take on other acting roles? Besides playing Thor in the Marvel Studios films Thor (2011), The Avengers (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013) and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Hemsworth has also appeared in Star Trek (2009), A Perfect Getaway (2009), The Cabin in the Woods (2012), Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Red Dawn (2012) and Rush (2013).

Preview Bandai Star Wars Movie Realization Samuraidaishou Darth Vader 18 cm action figure

Everyone knows George Lucas drew inspiration from Akira Kurosawa's "The Hidden Fortress" for Star Wars, particularly the droids C-3P0 and R2-D2. Not only that, Darth Vader's armor / overall look also was based very much on the Japanese samurai armor, specifically Date Masamune's samurai armor (Check out the 1/6 scale Date Masamune Samurai 12-inch figure released by DID posted in my toy blog HERE). Fighting with light sabers were very much mimicking the sword duels of the Samurais.

Bandai has picked up the Star Wars license, and the first figure they are offering (their centerpiece) is a Meishou MOVIE REALIZATION Samuraidaishou Darth Vader. This action figure, designed by Takayuki Takeya, will be 18 cm tall, featuring three alternate hands and lightsaber pieces, will be shipping in December 2014.


Bandai has released these images and information regarding their upcoming Star Wars Movie Realization Samurai Darth Vader. The figure will stand at 180 mm tall, which means it will just be over 7 inches tall. The Samurai Darth Vader will include a Lightsaber hilt, a fully extended Lightsaber, interchangeable hands and will have over 15 points of articulation. It’s cast in ABS and PVC plastics.

Preview WolfKing 1/6 scale Chemical Poisoning Teacher Outfit with Head Sculpt (Breaking Bad)

Some time ago in July this year, Wolfking previewed their Chemical Poisoning Teacher Figure Set, which everyone knew was none other than Walter White (Bryan Cranston) from AMC's award winning series, Breaking Bad. Check out the pictures HERE.

Well, WolfKing seems to knows a good thing when they have it and they have announced that they will be releasing another two 'Chemical Poisoning Teacher' sets later this year - an outfit set with head sculpt, and just the head sculpt itself. The outfit set consists of the 1/6 scale 'Bryan' bald head sculpt, glasses, maroon long sleeved button up shirt, gray dress slacks, chukka boots, and black windbreaker jacket. If you just want to build your own Walter White custom figure, you can just buy the Poisoning Teacher head and work from there.


WolfKing 1/6 scale Chemical Poisoning Teacher Outfit with Head Sculpt specially features: Head Sculpt, Glasses, Shirt, Jacket, Pants, Belt, Shoes. Note: 12-inch figure body not included.

Preview Easy & Simple 1/6 Zombie Survivor 12" figure - Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane (World War Z)

World War Z is a 2013 American disaster zombie film directed by Marc Forster. The screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard, and Damon Lindelof is from a screen story by Carnahan and J. Michael Straczynski, based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Max Brooks. The film stars Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a former United Nations investigator who must travel the world to find a way to stop a zombie pandemic.


Easy & Simple has decided to branch into the 12-inch figure market with their first offering through their new company ZEKE, which will represent a category of 1/6 boxed figure and accessory sets that all relate to a theme about how we fight against our infected brethren.

When the time has come, the survival is just step one...

Seen at STGCC2014: Marvel statues including Iron Man, Doctor Doom, Antman, Black Widow

continued from previous post...

STGCC 2014 coverage Part IV:
There seems to be a lot of statues on display at Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention this year (STGCC 2014 was at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center from September 6 to 7), and Iron Man is not spared either. Lots of Iron Man suits to be seen at the show, from small (1/6 scale Hot Toys Iron Man collectible figures posted earlier HERE) to BIGGER size models / statues (1/2 scale, all posted in my toy blog). They are certainly very nice but then, so is the price (ouch!). I just don't feel that they are value-for-money but hey, that's just my personal opinion so if statues is your cup of tea, I say "Go for it!" Everybody should be allowed to collect what they like, that's the FUN and enjoyable aspect of this hobby, sharing what we love. I took lot of pictures so that we can all enjoy looking at them together.

Noticeably absent from this year's show was Play Imaginative. They were hawking their wares (especially their Iron Man armor suits) in previous year's show but didn't turn up at all for this latest event.


Posted here are mostly statues by XM Studios, Singapore's very own producer of limited edition premium statue collectibles. Their current franchise properties include Marvel movie characters such as Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and many more beloved characters.

Seen at STGCC2014: Other 1/6 scale figures - Aragorn, Crusader, Mr Bean, JCVD, RoboCop

STGCC 2014 Coverage Part III:
Besides Hot Toys, a lot of the 1/6 scale manufacturers are there at this year's Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention (STGCC 2014, now on at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center from September 6 to 7 from 10am till 8pm) showcasing their products and teasing customers and potential buyers with what they had to offer in the near future. From ACI to ZCWO (A to Z), the toy companies (including DAM Toys with one of the hot sellers at STGCC - DAM TOYS 1/6 scale Gangsters Kingdom Spade J (GK001EX) figure [previewed HERE], Phicen etc) were all there to strut their stuff.


1/4 scale RoboCop made his presence felt at STGCC 2014 and he's HUGE!


This is the ACI Pangaea Toy PG01 Greek General 1/6 scale action figure. This 12-inch figure is most likely inspired by Brad Pitt's Achilles character from the 2004 American epic war film "Troy" and it's been a long while since anyone made this figure. An earlier figure released quite some time back was extremely limited in numbers and very hard to get hold of, with prices hitting the roof for the ones that appeared on eBay. You can check out the pictures of the Brad Pitt Achilles from "Troy" figure posted on my toy blog HERE.

Besides 12-inch Achilles, ACI also previewed their 1/6 scale Aragorn from Lord of the Rings as well as the Knight Hospitaller figure. Scroll down to see all the pictures. Click on them for bigger and better views.

Seen at STGCC2014: Star Wars sculpture series by 1000tentacles - these are just AWESOME!

continued from previous post...

STGCC 2014 Coverage Part II:
Kuala Lumpur-based creator 1000tentacles is at Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention (Sept 6-7, 2014), and he brought with him 12-inch toy sculptures + art book + posters + his original comic art work. I happened to walk by his booth (Booth No. AA23) and I was bowled over by his new STAR WARS SCULPTURE Series - featuring all our favorite characters: Chewbacca, Han Solo, Yoda, Ewok and Greedo, all done in a very unique style that is distinctive to "1000tentacles"! I LOVE it!


You can check out 1000tentacles facebook page HERE for more of his work. You can also check out his blog HERE.
