xenom0rph collection update December 2013 Video

Hot Toys Iron Man 3 - Mark XXI Midas MMS208 1/6 - photo gallery

Love that box, simple but nice! Biggest bummer is the non functional base. It may habe a battery compartment, but no light up feature. Why Hot Toys? Nobody will understand.

A peek into the "Iron Man manual" - insight editions

Today I got my "Iron Man manual" by publisher insight editions  . The perfect companion piece along your figure, statue or DVD collection on the Iron Man franchise. I especially like the sketches and descriptions of the armors, and all the neat "hand-written" notes all over the book give you some great fanboy cheers.

Check out my review on my youtube channel:

Hot Toys Iron Man 3 - Tony Stark MMS191 1/6 - photo review

US and European collectors can be happy - this first Iron Man 3 release by Hot Toys seem to ship the same time to your houses like the hong kong release. If you want it now a good source is Sideshow Collectibles.

This first figure in the line is the 1/6 Tony Stark subtitled "Mark XLII autonomous prehensile propulsion test suit version" - a complicated name but in the end it matches the movie scene where Tony tests his new main suit for the movie.

You get a lot of stuff in the huge box - so lets have first a look at some photos:

Hot Toys Batmobile 1989 1/6 photo review

Finally, finally - the Batmobile 1989 by Hot Toys arrived at my door today.  Got it directly from Sideshow Collectibles, thanks to the great customer service with organizing the international shipping. Get your Hot Toys Batmobile 1989 through this link.

A first look at this amazing display piece before we go into a short review:

Some additional info on the order / deal itself: Sideshow seems to give international buyers a discount on the shipping costs. I paid around 130 USD just for shipping Fedex. Fedex declared the package weight around 140 lbs, the blonde Fedex chic definately had problems taking this bad boy out of the van, so I gave her a hand of course. :) After unboxing the net weight of the batmobile is around 40 pounds.

Right now I have no clue what customs charged and what the taxes will cost, but expect to be another 100 USD.  So all in all this piece will be quite costly, even if you live near to Sideshow from what I've heard.

DAM Toys - Pointman GMC Lake Navy Seal 1/6 - Tears of the Sun

I want to show off something different today and change the usual review cycles a bit:

DAM Toys is upping their track record with the recent releases on Tears of the Sun figures. Altough they haven't an official license covering their line of figs its undeniable of which movie the figures come from. DAM started out with lots of different military figures and recently got into movies that cover the war theme. A huge effort in the past was their line on Black Hawk Down figures.

Tears of the sun was quite a good war movie and I def. liked the characters in there. So I thought I'd give the first figure in the line of DAM Toys "Navy seal recon team in Nigeria 2003" a try: GMC Lake or the pointman / scout of the unit.

Check this blog post with a short written review, some photos and a video review on GMC Lake.
