Toy review roundup (via Fanmode)

fanmode-copy Corey Tincher reviews the Shocker Toys Indie Spotlight ShadowHawk (variant) figure. Excerpt: “You’re … getting a character in plastic form that you would probably otherwise never see, so paying a little extra premium is more reasonable.”

Nathan Newell reviews the Shocker Toys Indie Spotlight Scud (Sol version) figure. Excerpt: “… a pretty solid figure.”

yo go re reviews the Diamond Select Toys Marvel Select Anti-Venom figure. Excerpt: “The Marvel Select figure isn’t as articulated as it could be, of course, but it’s still … more than acceptable …”

Artemis reviews the Diamond Select Toys Star Trek Deep Space Nine Lieutenant Commander Worf Previews Exclusive figure from Soldiers of the Empire. Excerpt: “… a valuable (though not mandatory) version of Worf; if you’re a Klingon fan this is the one you’ll want above all others.”

Nathan Newell reviews the Playmates Toys Star Trek Warp Collection Kirk and Spock 6-inch figures. Excerpt: “… the terrible designs of these figures are totally uncool.”

Joseph Baxter reviews the Playmates Toys Star Trek Galaxy Collection Spock 3.75-inch figure. Excerpt: “Star Trek figures have either been well-articulated, but too large and expensive, OR too small and lacking in articulation and detail. This one definitely falls somewhere in the comfortable middle.” (See also.)

Poe Ghostal reviews the Playmates Toys Terminator Salvation Deluxe T-1 figure. Excerpt: “… the T-1 is incredibly under-sized (it should be about 7″ tall) and the mini-tread should be in the back.”

Darren Cilenti reviews the Takara Tomy Transformers Gentei Thrust Ganbo Store exclusive figure. Excerpt: “The changes made by the BotCon crew for their version are more elegant, but this is still a useful retooling.”

yo go re reviews the Hasbro Transformers Universe Armada Series Hot Shot figure. Excerpt: “This was really the best they could do?” (See also.)

Darren Cilenti reviews the Hasbro Transformers Allspark Power Voyager class Mudflap Toys ‘R’ Us exclusive figure. Excerpt: “A good mould with two solid modes, good gimmicks and great play value but a colour scheme that’s dubious at best.” (See also.)
