This is another cheap set from walmart. At less than $5.00 I was very pleased with the vehicles in this set. As long as you do not flip them over they are pretty interesting designs that could easily fit in on a 3 3/4 gi joe battleground. The jeep sits three two in the jeep and a rear gunner. The jeep also has a red button that plays two different sounds and there is a small red light in the seat near the driver side. The half track like vehicle sits one. The two vehicles seem like they are both out of two different times. This set also includes a single figure and a lot of guns.

Testing a masters of the universe Spydor I purchased to fix up. Fun vehicle, but the center legs had some trouble staying in place initially. I used a bit of painters tape around the insert and they stayed on. I will try to make a more permanent fix for them. I may have to let the fumo's try some of my other vehicles in the future.

I received a request for a replacement plug for the He-Man figure Snout Spout. The cup was easy enough but I was not too sure about the stem. The rounded stem I made initially was a mess but the flat rectangular version worked out great. I am happy to add this new design to my collection of replica parts. If you need one you can find it at the link below. If you need a replacement part made let me know and I will see what I can do. Thank you for watching.

Cut from my Hello Kitty party set unboxing.

Cheap little party set made for dolls but Fumo like it too. The noise maker squeak was pretty great. $20 seems a bit high for this. We will see how much use I get out of it though.

Update, It looks like the actual price was $4.00 so that is certainly a more realistic price.

I found this Adventure Force crunch & carry shark at Walmart on my last visit. Another simple toy I can use for some fun photographs. The small fish that come with it are very detailed and surprisingly well painted. The shark's main body is plastic and the tail and pectoral fins are rubber. Pushing down the dorsal fin causes the mouth of the shark to open. There is a lot of room in the shark and there is a trap door on the belly of the shark. At under $8.00 I am happy with the product and price. Thank you for watching.

Usual Figma quality and joints. The swimsuit is well designed to work with the Figma body without and distracting breaks or seams. The cape was a little difficult to place, maybe there is a trick I did not see to installing it. The ball in the staff seems like it will disappear pretty fast. There is a plastic tab inside of the hat that slips in to the break in the hair. It seemed like a good idea but before the video was over I had already bent it and it seemed like it will break soon. As long as you assemble the figure and leave it alone the that tab will probably be fine. The smug face ice cream and thumbs up are going to make for some fun pictures. Overall a nice figure and I am looking forward to using her in some future videos and photos.

I was browsing through some older Revoltech figures and found this Fraulein SP No.2 Nagato Yuki figure for $9.00. This is a pretty heavy figure even without the huge cape, cat and hat. The white paint work on the shirt and arms is not very impressive. There are a couple of paint blobs and some missing paint around the elbow joints. Her arms also have some divots from the mold. All joints except for the knees and elbows are standard revoltech clicky joints. Fresh out of the box Her left leg was a bit bent out of shape at the knee. I will have to try and warm it up and see if i can get it straightened up. The cut in the video where the figure goes from caped to uncaped was three minutes of me fiddling with the leg. The guitar looks pretty nice. The guitar strap is shaped well and the holes are different sizes so it fits one way only. The book is simple with a little paint bleed but the little wand is very nice. The hat sits on her head and has the shape of the hair indented in to the inside so it sits one way. The cat has a small peg on the side of its head that slips in to the cape. It took a minute to figure out where the cat was meant to be placed even though it was clearly pictured on the back of the box. At 150mm this figure is much larger than I expected. I am not sure what kind of accessories or dioramas i might be able to find for a figure this size. I am am pretty happy with the figure and I am going to be looking in to this Fraulein line to see what else is available.

This "Giant Poseable Action Creature" is a nice way to end the first set of Lanard figures. The larger arms are well articulated. The feet are on a ball joint making it easy to adjust for a stable standing pose. The tail balances the figure nicely even with that huge top heavy head armor. The mini titty arms are on a rotating ball joint in the chest. A wrist joint would have made them great for carrying things. That goes for both the large arms and the small arms. I am not crazy about the color but it keeps with the theme of multi colored aliens. A red or yellow version would have been great for either genocide or TMNT displays. The inner mouth pops out when the head armor is pushed down. I am enjoying this figure more than I expected to. I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you for watching.

The art work is over the top and really well done on these. It is not very often you see a triceratops stomping through a wedding with a bride and groom impaled on each horn. About half way through that gum pile started sounding like a pile of broken pottery. I ended up with two complete sets from this single box.

No one ever believes me when I tell them to use lighter fluid to remove paint rubs. Some times the rub will come off immediately with light rubbing. This time it took a bit of work. Keep an eye on the q tip. If it gets to dirty you might end up spreading paint like I did early on in this video. Once I rotated the q tip to a clean part of the cotton and swapped out the q tips when they were dirty it just took a little more pressure and the paint rubs were completely removed. Lighter fluid drys quickly so keep an eye on the q tip and add more if needed. Zippo brand fluid works just as well. If you need to remove stickers or gummy material from a surface lighter fluid works great for that as well. Thank you for watching.

I really like the idea behind these Polynian figures. The entire figure can be broken down in to base parts and figures can be mixed together. The joints were all strong and the figure was no trouble to stand on its own. The stand included is what you would expect though the hole in the back seemed smaller than it needed to be. This figure displays nicely and I overall am pleased with what I received for the price, $62. The only real negative on this figure was the tail bow. There is very little on the bow parts to peg in to the figure and hold the part in place. It seems like the tail bow could have been done much better with an actual peg or any number of other ways. Being in its own little packet I am guessing this was a last minute addition. It probably would have been better left out.

I was really looking forward to this set. The APC looked nice in the box but it is so small. I believe this could have been much better as a larger delux set. The marine in this one is another disappointment. Like the other Marines only basic articulation at the shoulders and waist. My complaints about this set should be ignored as I was more concerned about using it with other figures. For the xenomorph toyline it is a fine vehicle. I was surprised when I flipped the insert and found screws. They locked that APC down. I hope you enjoyed the video. Thank you for watching.

If you have any Robo Force figures with weak pneumatic action they may benefit from this quick easy modification. The rubber tubing I use in this video for the arms probably could have been cut to half the length and still made the arm joints stiff and sealed the pneumatic system. Not shown in the video is the cleaning I did to the system and arms. These Robo Force Robots always have some kind of grease at the arm joints. I am not sure if this is some kind of rubber that has melted or if grease was used to help seal the arm connection to the pneumatic bellows parts. I hope you enjoy the video.

Picked up a Dragon Ball Super Starter Box and thought we would take a look at what is inside together.

Includes paper play mat and instructions
1 Starter Deck
5 Booster Packs
1 special "Dash" pack.

The highlight of this set is the turret. The Blue alien is similar to the yellow alien. There are a few small differences in the details. The Marine figure is very basic. He is well armed but there are no knee or elbow joints which is pretty disappointing after opening the set with the cycle. I would have preferred two aliens with the turret set over the un-articulated Marine. As with the other sets this is a Walmart exclusive. Get them before they are only available on ebay

Footage of my work to create new rubber treads for the Super GoBot Destroyer. I made these treads very tight, they do not move freely. I may revise the design in the future if it turns out there is interest in this item. I am very happy with the end result. Destroyer is now a regular, displayed prominently on my desk. More repair and replica part videos soon. If you need some replacement treads or anything else made for that matter you can find a link to my etsy shop below.

This was the least interesting looking set. The motorcycle was not all that impressive through the window of the box. Once I released the motorcycle from the box I found I liked it more than I expected. The red dog alien is great. The points of articulation were well placed and allowed for a lot of unexpected poses. The human figure is also much better than the one from the first set. Everything seems correctly placed. No backwards elbow pads here. The joints move freely and stay in place. The gun can be held without issue and the figure can ride the bike convincingly enough. I was much more impressed with this set than I thought I would be. Again this is a $10.00 Walmart exclusive and is already all over ebay so if you do not want to have to pay a premium grab them now before they all disappear.

Cirno delivers!

I was not expecting much from these sets when I heard about them a few months ago. The $10.00 price was not very convincing either but I am happy with this set. I am not sure why the orange space suit figure has pegs on his leg. The gun does not have any holes for the pegs and I do not see any other accessories. The right arm seems to have been sculpted backwards or reused from somewhere else. As you can see in the video the helmet comes off. The alien does not have any backwards limbs and is more articulate than i expected. The face hugger seems a little large for the orange space suit figure but it is nicely detailed and will work with other larger figures. The egg hollow but it is a nice size as well. Both the egg and face hugger do not look out of place next to 1/12 size figures. The presentation and packaging is great on these Xenomorph Swarm sets. The packaging is clearly where the most money and effort was spent. I am looking forward to opening more the rest of the sets. If you are interested in this set or any of the other xenomorph sets they are walmart exclusive and they are already being sold on ebay for almost three times the price. Get them before they are only available second hand. More soon.

Mandarake unboxing three. What or who can it be now?

For $5.00 These are much better than I expected. Once assembled the arms and legs can still be moved. The tiny little red trex arms are great. After opening the bone trex I was surprised to see the red trex had a tail lever to open its mouth. The bone dinosaurs are nice but the flesh covered dinosaurs are the main event. I do not care much for the orange slices they came in. I think a ball type capsule would have made things much easier. The figures all assembled tightly. At first I thought the armor parts were loose but after filming I noticed the figures that seemed to have loose armor had little clips that grab on to the ribs and bones of the dinosaur. The variety in the included pamphlet looks interesting. I will have to pick up a few more of these. If you are interested in these I found them locally at walmart. If you pick some of these up let me know what you get and what you think of them. Thank you for watching.

The camera was aiming a little low this time. Until I can get a larger desk I think this setup is as good as it gets. I am still looking for suggestions for improvements.
