Michael Crawford reviews the Playmates Toys Terminator Salvation T-600, T-700, T-R.I.P and Marcus (Battle Damage version) 3¾-inch-scale figures. Excerpt: “These are quite a bit better than the 3 3/4″ Star Trek line from Playmates, also on pegs right now, and they’re a bit better than I’ve seen most folks giving them credit for.” (See also.)

Darren Cilenti reviews the Hasbro Transformers Animated Activators Cliffjumper figure. Excerpt: “… a great little figure, with a very welcome retooled head …” (See also.)

EVA Unit 4A reviews the Bandai Macross Origin of Valkyrie VF-1A Super Valkyrie (Maximilian Jenius version) 1/55-scale figure. Excerpt: “While it would have been nice to see Max’s VF-1S come out in 1/55 scale (which has the same livery as this one does), this one is equally appreciated …”

Artemis reviews the Playmates Toys Star Trek Warp Collection Kirk 6-inch figure. Excerpt: “… I know the kind of figure the Diamond Select/Art Asylum could turn out, and this one just isn’t quite as good – it’s a little plainer, a little rougher, a little less versatile, a little less accessorised.” (See also.)

Michael Crawford reviews the Playmates Toys Star Trek Warp Collection Kirk, Spock and Cadet Uhura 6-inch figures. Excerpt: “This scale doesn’t have the quality of the larger figures, or the playsets of the smaller, making it my least favorite of the three.” (See also.)
