Retro reviews

Thomas Wheeler reviews the Bandai Power Rangers Operation Overdrive Mission Response Sentinel Ranger, Moltor and Kamdor figures. Excerpt: “… I am especially pleased to note that Bandai gives the villains almost as much articulation as they do the Rangers these days. Such has not always been the case.”

Jeremy Kaufmann reviews the Takara Actic Gear AG-V08 Scopedog Turbo Custom 1/48 scale set from the Votoms series. Excerpt: “This is probably favorite Actic Gear out of the few that I own, and served as a good holdover before Yamato released their massive 1:12 scale Scopedog Turbo Custom.”
