Greetings everyone! The name is Eric, and starting today, I’ll be lending a hand with reviews of newly released figures, dealing mostly in S.H. Figuarts and Figma, hope you enjoy my first here at Plastic Ronins!
This figure review is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Welcome to Inaba, a small rural town in Japan. What seems to be a peaceful place quickly finds itself to be the center of un-explainable serial murder. Around the same time, a high-school teenager named (insert your main character’s name here) arrives at Inaba. From that point on, The Protagonist and his friends would venture into television, in order to solve the Inaba serial killer.
Welcome to Persona 4.
(from Kamen Rider Agito)
Detective Makoto Hikawa, dedicated policeman and hero of Akatsuki-Gou incident, was selected to be part of SAUL (Squad of Anti Unidentified Lifeforms) and its G3 project. As ‘Kamen Rider’ G3, Hikawa fought against the Unknowns to his best extent with help of Omuro and Ozawa. During the mid-point of Kamen Rider Agito, Hikawa upgraded to G3-X, advanced version of G3 with advanced AI and additional weapons.
The following figure review is scheduled for ONE FALL!!

Anyone remember Mobile Suit Gundam F91 movie? If you do, give yourself a pat on the back. If not, well… pretend you did at least.
Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam is a manga series which takes place ten years after the end of Gundam F91 movie, which also makes this manga direct sequel to the movie. In Crossbone Gundam manga, Jupiter Empire is hell bent on taking over the Earth with evil intent and force. To counter Jupiter Empire’s invasion, Cecily Fairchild comes out of hiding, takes up her original name of Berah Ronah, and reforms Crossbone Vanguard. With Seabrook Arno (who now uses the alias Kincaide Nau) and XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1, Crossbone Vangaurd wages war against Jupiter Empire. Hmm, a pirate group fighting against a big empire… sounds like certain pirates we know took a page out of Crossbone Vanguard. In any case, Bandai made Robot Damashii version of all 3 Crossbone Gundams (X-2 and X-3 as well), but I will review X-1 for the time being.

If David Tennant can time travel, so can Optimus Prime.
Alternity is a spiritual successor to the Binaltech/Alternator line, in which the Transformers’ alternate mode was based on real-life car brand (as if old ones weren’t already). In this Transformers line, everyone has some sort of time-travel ability (even Bumblebee). Out of the all time-travel-formers, Convoy stands on top. With his Space-Destroying-Laser-Cannon-Of-DOOM, Convoy protects Megatron from conquering the universe and the entire time-line. Damn, that sounds ridiculously crazy already. Anyways, THE FIGURE!

I have a policy when it comes to movies, and it’s the fact that I don’t cry at any movie. But sometime a movie comes so close, and I do mean SO CLOSE, to making me break that creed. Summer Wars was not only an action-packed movie, but it was also full of family-value with some sad parts here and there. So, consider this a short movie review as well: BUY, RENT, WHATEVER, SEE IT!!! One crucial part of Summer Wars was OZ, a cyber-world where everyday life was comprised of. Even the government runs on OZ, that’s how big this place is. King Kazma is the most popular user in OZ, winning Cyber Martial Arts Championship. It’s only natural that such badass gets figure treatment, as Figma, along with Love Machine.
