F4F Exclusive Crash Bandicoot PVC Statue Review & Photos

First4Figures Crash Bandicoot PVC Review

Never in my life did I expect to purchase a piece of Crash Bandicoot merchandise—but that expectation was shattered when First4Figures announced their Activision licenses and started showing off their masterpieces. While the first resin Crash and Spyro statues won’t be arriving until next year, the PVC Crash Bandicoot Exclusive Edition went up for sale in the summer and is starting to arrive now. Is the Crash PVC up to the usual F4F standards? Read on for my review…

REVIEW: Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Chun Li & Mega Man X Statues 

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Mega Man X Statue Review

Earlier today, I posted my review of the Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Collector’s Edition Iron Man & Captain Marvel statues and Infinity “Gems” box on Marvel Toy News, but that’s only half the battle (okay, more like three-fifths of it, but whatever). The other two statues in the Collector’s Edition set are two of Capcom’s biggest icons, and also the figures I was most looking forward to in the box set. Do the Mega Man X and Chun Li statues meet my expectations?

But then the doorbell rang this morning and all plans went out the window when a new figure came in through the front door! I’ve been anxiously anticipating it ever since I ordered it in June 2016: I’ve finally gotten equipped with the First4Figures F4F Item 2 Mega Man Statue, and it “rockets” (haha, get it?) past my expectations…

First 4 Figures Zelda Breath of the Wild Link PVC Statue Review

Review First4Figures Zelda Breath of the Wild Link PVC Statue

If someone held me at bow-and-arrow-point and demanded to know what my favorite collectibles company going today is, I wouldn’t have to think very much before replying “First 4 Figures”. First4Figures has been making high-end video game statues and collectibles for over a decade now, and the various resin Sega and Nintendo statues I have from them are among my absolute favorite toys that I own. But F4F is trying something new in 2017, as they jump into the PVC statue market with their 10″ Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Link statue. Does the trademark F4F quality carry over to this new style? Read on for my review…

Mattel Halo Fred 6″ Figure Review & Photos

Close-Up of Halo 5 Fred-104 Six Inch Figure Mattel

When Mattel announced their acquisition of the master license for Halo toys and figures last winter, I genuinely believed that a rejuvenation of Halo as a toy brand was impending. Things haven’t exactly worked out that way, with only two new figures released since last summer and zero in the pipeline. And unfortunately, not only is the Mattel Halo Fred 6″ figure expensive and hard to find (as he’s packed at just one per case alongside Kelly in the Wave 1 revision box), he’s also one of the worst quality figures I’ve purchased in years…
