TOY REVIEW: SH Figuarts “Super Shinken Red”

Company: Bandai of Japan

Purchased From: BBTS.com

Cost: $50

Line: SH Figuarts / Samurai Sentai Shinkenger

Figure: Super Shinken Red (Takeru Shiba)

 

Earlier, I reported on my addiction. My expensive, addiction. SH Figuarts. Since than, I have added Kamen Rider Fourze and Super Shinken Red to my Figuarts lineup-and I’m here to talk to you about the latter….

 

I give you Takeru Shiba…Authorized by providence, the 19th Head of the Shiba Clan…..SUPER. SHINKEN. RED. *cue Shinkenger opening*

 

The posability and overall awesomeness is still there from the original ShinkenRed figure, we just now get the fancy elvis jacket. Included with Super Shinken Red (outside of the usual array of hands) is 2 discs (the Super Disc and the Bull Disc), a ShinkenMaru, a Bull Cannon, a Shodophone, and a Black Box (im sorry, I cant remember the names of everything in Shinkenger, so somethings will be given their Power Rangers Samurai name)

 

Now, unlike the standard issue Shinken Red-this one is NOT available at Toys R Us (yet..). I purchased mine from BBTS for about $50. Its not terrible for the figure-plus its just been released-so its nice to not have to wait months for it. 🙂

 

The jacket looks very nice-and is molded to the body of the figure. Part of me wishes they just did a super mode accessory pack for the standard issue figures-but the idea of having two ShinkenReds posed together on my shelf is pretty damned awesome…

 

Overall, its a great figure and compliments my standard ShinkenRed very well. Worth the price of admission-and while the figure isnt super heavy on the accessory count (again, outside of the standard hands)-the accesories it DOES come with are pretty awesome. The discs fit onto the ShinkenMaru, into the canon, and into the black box-which is pretty neat.

TOKU REVIEW DOUBLE FEATURE: Gokaiger vs Gavan on a Flying Ghost Ship: THE MOVIE!


This is a first for us here at Creative Commons. Our first DOUBLE FEATURE REVIEW! The reason I’m doing it this way, is that despite my undying love for all things Gokaiger…I don’t really feel either of these movies deserve their own single review post. Today, we’re going to look at the second and third films from 2011 that feature everybody favorite Pirate Rangers, the GOKAIGERS! First up is the summer film, “Gokaiger The Movie: The Flying Ghost Ship”-which was double billed with the Kamen Rider OOOs movie, which may or may not of been previously reviewd right here on this site.

The second part of the review is the annual Sentai Versus movie, Gokaiger vs Space Sheriff Gavan of the Metal Heroes franchise (whose source material was used for not only VR Troopers, but Big Bad Bettle Borgs as well!)

So, since this is a double feature, let’s dive into Gokaiger and the Flying Ghost Ship……and remember-let’s make it extra showy!

TOKU REVIEW: GARO (2005)

where there is light.

shadows lurk, and fear reigns.

but by the blade of knights….

mankind, was given hope.

When most people think of Tokusatsu in Japan, they think of shows like Super Sentai. They think of shows like Kamen Rider. They think of shows like Ultraman, or even Godzilla. Rarely do people think of GARO, when they think of tokusatsu.

I really hope that changes, because there is a whole new world of more, adult orientated tokusatsu out there. We’re going to dive into it head first, with 2005’s….GARO.

NEW ADDICTION: SH Figuarts

Power Rangers Samurai is FREAKING HUGE.

Seriously. It’s not the hulkamania levels of popular that “Mighty Morphin'” was in the 90s, but jesus christ, “Samurai” is doing very well in the ratings (that Saturday @ Noon timeslot is HIGHLY coveted…) and the toys are selling EXTREMELY well. Probably the first Bandai of America toyline that DOESNT SUCK COMPLETLY, at least in a VERY long time.
