Retro reviews

Updatedude reviews the Megahouse Perfect Model Robonimal Panda-Z (silver version) figure. Excerpt: “The silver gives off a real nice metallic feel, which coupled with the nice heft the toy has, almost makes it seem like diecast. Which of course, it isn’t.” (Related.)

Excerpt: “I _do_ prefer the original Mach Alert and regular Super Mach Alert, but this is by no means a poor variant.” (See also.)

  1. Hence why I'm not going to bother to waste my time on any malformed, screwed up, and just generally wrong MOTUC reviews! Its like watching Fox news… and MOTUC is a liberal democrat gay hippie…

  2. That was a harsh Faker review! Althought honestly, the price of these figures is really starting to wear on me, and I think you'll see that reflected in my upcoming Stratos review…

  3. Poe

    Yep. OAFE is not MOTUC-friendly. I freely admit I am. Different strokes for different folks.

  4. Nicholai

    Wow that review of Faker was quite harsh.

  5. Poe

    Honestly, I have no idea. My agreement with the editor of Fanmode stipulates I don't alter the code in any way, so I just copy and paste.

  6. I think it might be in the order that they collect the reviews.

  7. I love that you post these, but I still can't figure out how they arrange the order of the list.
