Let Me See Your Identification

The newest wave of the ever popular LEGO Star Wars buildable figure series saw a return to the original trilogy, with the release of the might of the Empire’s finest soldiers.

Unveiled earlier this year, the news caught my eyes as soon as it entered the Holo-Net, as this is what I’ve waited for the past year ever since my acquisition of LEGO Star Wars 75111 Darth VaderLEGO Star Wars 75110 Luke Skywalker and LEGO Star Wars 75114 First Order Stormtrooper

I too possessed a couple of bootleg buildable figures (A second First Order Stormtrooper and a Captain Phasma) which I’ve yet to review on this blog, and perhaps I never will.

Anyway, a look at the box of both buildable figures show a substantial difference between the two: the LEGO Star Wars 75531 Stormtrooper Commander’s package is pretty much similar to the previous releases as it has only the figure itself, while the LEGO Star Wars 75532 Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike is roughly 3 times the width of the former, due to the inclusion of the vehicle…

Chibi Foxy Waifu of an Extra Fate

The ever-loving Caster from the Fate/Extra series, Tamamo no Mae finally made her appearance in the cutesy adorable form of a Nendoroid.

It may take her almost half a decade to finally arrive in this as well as her Figma form, but nonetheless the wait is worth every seconds. <3

Packaged in your standard Nendo box design and format, Tama-chan boasts a number of optional parts that will surely tickle any Master’s fancy.

Clad in her signature deep bluish segmented kimono as well as her gigantic but girlish bow, the Tama-chan figure is pretty detailed in the application along with her eye-catching fox ears and tail.

In the Spirit of Digivolving

Finally, after decades of waiting, the transformable line of Digimon action figures finally make a come back, now better designed and proportioned!

Must not miss this one this time around like I did my childhood! =w=

From the official site:

A worldwide hit in the early 2000’s the monumental transforming figure series, “Digivolving Figures” achieved “evolution” through physical transformation. This concept is pursued this time to the highest level. The pre-evolution “cuteness” and post-evolution “coolness” as well overall proportions are replicated using the newest sculpting technology. The finish of the final product is also given special consideration, using die-cast and chrome finish on some parts.

Striving to be the ultimate Digimon transforming figure series for collectors, this is “Digivolving Spirits”.

The basic concept of the “Digivolving Spirits” series is to achieve designs that weren’t possible with the technology of the earlier “Digivolving series”. The first release, WarGreymon, follows in the footsteps of the basic transformation from the “Digivolving series”.

But improvements to the joint system and the overall balance have resulted in a true Digivolution of the figure’s proportions. The result is a transforming figure that’s nostalgic and fresh at the same time.
