Hot Toys has released another Justice League collectible figure, this time being the Justice League Hot Toys Batman Deluxe Figure. This will be the second Hot Toys Justice League Batman figure, the first being the Batman Tactical Suit figure. So far, we are missing a Hot Toys Cyborg figure to complete the Justice League line up and Batman has already gotten a second release.
The difference in the Hot Toys Justice League Batman Deluxe Collectible figure from the Batman versus Superman version is that it includes a Parademon diorama stand as well as a facial sculpt of Ben Affleck fully unmasked and a Parademon gun. The most obvious difference though is that the costume looks very much updated and looks more fitting and aggressive.
The SH Figuarts Broly Dragon Ball toy is one massive figure. He stands even taller than Nappa and is definitely going to stand out in your Dragon Ball Z toy display. SH Figuarts has also included several green spherical special effects parts for Broly's attack which is a great addition because SH Figuarts is usually not very generous with special effects parts. The SH Figuarts Broly figure has a very nice sculpt and as seen in the anime, his irises disappears when transforming into this Super Saiyan form and adds to his maniacal look.
The massive growth in his muscle mass does nothing to slow him down unlike the Super Saiyan Third Grade transformation that Trunks attempted. With muscle mass increasing so much, Trunk's speed was greatly reduced and as pointed out by Perfect Cell, what good is such power if you cannot hit your opponent. It was not the case with Super Saiyan Broly as he evades a joint attack by Goku and Piccolo effortlessly.
The SH Figuarts Broly Dragon Ball Toy figure is a must have for any serious SH Figuarts Dragon Ball Figures collector.
The SH Figuarts Broly Figure comes in at approximately 7.5 Inch high, appropriately taller than other S.H.Figuarts Dragon Ball characters.
He comes with two facial expression parts including one maniacal smirking face and the other being a berserk-like scream Additional parts include three unique energy-sphere effect parts and interchangeable hand piece.
This version of the SH Figuarts Naruto Sage Mode figure comes with his Happi coat and a big ninja scroll carried by Naruto and depicts his appearance when he fought the 6 Paths of Pain who had just destroyed Konoha. This is a revised version and Naruto looks more mature and powerful. The coat is removable and he can be posed in his normal orange jump suit.
I like the inclusion of this giant ninja scroll that comes in the SH Figuarts Naruto Advance Sage Mode figure. I still remember his appearance standing on the head of a toad ready for battle with the 6 Paths of Pain, epic scene indeed.
Great pose with Jiraya, another one of my favourite characters. The SH Figuarts Naruto line is doing pretty well with many great releases.
Uchiha Madara was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan and was a child prodigy who was born with a naturally strong chakra. His constant rivalry with Hashirama who was both a friend and competitor drove him to pursue increasing powers which eventually awakened his Sharingan.
The S.H. Figuarts Madara Uchiha "Naruto" Action Figure depicts him in the his appearance in the Eye of the Moon Plan arc and comes with two interchangeable heads. One of them shows him alive when he founded Konoha together with Hashirama and the other shows him with a cracked face and a sneer as seen in the Manga when he detected the chakra of his rival Hashirama.
The S.H. Figuarts Madara Uchiha "Naruto" Action Figure comes with 3 interchangeable hand parts to allow him to grasp his weapons as well as perform hand signs for the many jutsu that he is well versed in. Uchiha Madara is skilled in all five nature transformations as well as the Yin-Yang release. As an Uchiha, he has a natural affinity for the Fire Release and thus it is only app that the hand parts come with one depicting him executing a fire jutsu.
The weapons that Madara were commonly seen wielding are also included in the SH Figuarts Marara Action Figure, namely, a gunbai and a kama. The gunbai is a wide fan with tomoe on it and is used by Madara to deflect incoming attacks and to use as a mace or flail for slicing at his enemies.
The kama is a sickle like weapon which Madara uses with a chain attached to its end to use as a weapon for tossing as well as for close combat. Both the gunbai and the kama are included nicely in the S.H. Figuarts Madara Uchiha "Naruto" Action Figure.
The SH Figuarts Madara Action figure from the Naruto Series is available for Order on Amazon.com.
The Dark Knight Trilogy by Christopher Nolan starring Christian Bale as Batman is one of my all time favorite movie series. Now, SH Figuarts has released a Batman figure featuring the armor from the second installment of The Dark Knight Trilogy and the result is awesome.
I'm glad that Bandai Tamashii Nations released the Batman figure based on the armor from the second series because it features separation of the protective plates for better agility and speed. The separation of his cowl from his body armor also allows Batman to turn his head.
I personally think that the sculpt of the SH Figuarts The Dark Knight figure is spot on and highly detailed. It is a good substitution for Hot Toys Batman figures for collectors who are not into 12 inch figures or have space or budget constraints.
In terms of facial sculpt, the SH Figuarts The Dark Knight figure has already done a pretty good job in capturing Christian Bale's features. For this price, you don't expect Hot Toys standards.
Accessories are a bit lacking and the figure comes with the sticky bomb gun featured in the Hong Kong scene where Batman broke into the building to kidnap Lau back to Gotham to stand trial. You can tell that it looks decent enough for this scale. Other accessories are two batarangs, one grappling hook and a few interchangeable heads and hand parts and that's about it.
The cape on the S.H. Figuarts Batman "The Dark Knight" is made of real fabric and there are some wires inside it which can be shaped to help with posing. Just look at this pose with his cape that looks like it is flapping in the wind. SH Figuarts really put in some thought into this figure instead of just releasing him with a piece of fabric attached.
The Bandai Tamashii Nations SH Figuarts Naruto Series - Gaara figure comes with 4 interchangeable hands, 2 interchangeable faces, folded arm part, Sand Effect for his signature Desert Coffin Jutsu as well as a stand and his gourd which holds his chakra infused sand.
The paint job on the figure is nicely done and he comes with his gourd on his back. One of the problems with the SH Figuarts Gaara figure is that this may cause some issues with his balance but he still stands nicely. The gourd is pegged on his back so it is easily removable.
Articulation is great and the flaps in front of his legs can be bent and allows for a wide range of movement as seen from the pictures here.
The Jutsu effect also comes with a stand for support and the SH Figuarts Gaara looks pretty cool. The thing about SH Figuarts figure is that they tend to get the face sculpt of the characters very accurately so you really feel like you are owning a part of your favourite anime and manga.
The Hot Toys Justice League Wonder Woman (Deluxe Version) gets a timely release together with the highly anticipated Justice League movie. This version of the Hot Toys Justice League Wonder Woman is a much improved version from the previous Hot Toys Wonder Woman release.
This time round, the facial sculpt of Wonder Woman based off the beautiful Gal Gadot is further improved from it's predecessor. Her lips and eyes look much more natural and life-like. Costume wise, the Hot Toys Justice League Wonder Woman (Deluxe Version) comes with her red, blue and gold movie accurate armor with weathering effect.
The fur overcoat that comes with the Hot Toys Justice League Wonder Woman is really very realistically done and goes very well with the toy figure.
Other than her sword, shield and a wound up Lasso of Truth which were included in the previous Hot Toys Wonder Woman release, the deluxe Justice League version comes with many more accessories.
There are two yellow colored Lasso of Truth to depict the whip glowing brightly in battle. Her Bracelets of Submission also comes with two colors, silver for normal state and another orange version which to show them pulsating with energy.
Other fun accessories are the magnetic sparkling bullet effects to simulate the bouncing of bullets off her Bracelets of Submission.

From the highly popular Attack on Titan Manga and Anime comes the female lead character Mikasa Ackerman from Figma.
The sculpt, paint job and all the accessories included in this Figma Attack on Titan Mikasa Action Figure looks amazing. One look at the the figure and you will know that this is a high quality collectible for mature collectors. The thing about anime toys figures is that the facial expression is very important to be captured correctly. After all, we are buying these toys to own and be part of the anime so it would really take away the feeling if the facial sculpt is slightly off and you feel that this is not really the character from the anime.
The cape on the Figma Mikasa toy figure is removable and it comes with various accessories and stand for posing her movement through space and battling Titans using the 3D gear.
Articulation wise, she looks really nice as the joints are not overly ugly and she can get many nice poses off such as the one below of her taking her pledge to the Scouting Legion.
Taking a closer look at the 3D gear, you will be impressed by how detail and delicate the sculpt is. painting is nicely done with the metallic moving parts painted a metallic shiny paint. I really like how the soft cables are running around the 3D gear making it look very close to what we see in the anime.
The Scouting Legion batch is also nicely painted but do be careful not to scratch off the paint while attaching or removing her cape.
This is my favourite pose of the Figma Attack on Titan Mikasa Action Figure. She looks very life-like almost as if she is coming to life and jumping right out from the anime. The smoking effect part coming out from her 3D gear is a nice addition to depict her propulsion and movement around.
Overall this is a very nice figure from one of my favourite Animes and is a must get. It would be nice if we can get some figures of Titans coming up but they will definitely not be in scale.
Goku Black ( pronounced Burakku in Japanese ) is the main antagonist in the Dragon Ball Super anime, Future Trunks Saga. Goku Black's true identity is Zamasu who stole the body of the original present Goku. For more information, refer to the Dragon Ball Wiki page.
He also comes with the Power Up effect which is a rare inclusion as SH Figuarts Figures seldom come with such accessories so this is a good addition. I like the dark purple color which signifies a more evil, darker power that is associated with Goku Black.
Also, the SH Figuarts Dragon Ball Super Goku Black Figurecomes with interchangeable head to allow for his transformation to the Super Saiyan Rose. He also comes with the energy aura accessory which is a blade of energy that he used to mortally injure Vegeta.
In terms of facial sculpt, I really like what they have done with the SH Figuarts Goku Black and his more evil and sinister expression is captured nicely here.
