Super Review Wars DX – The Epic Conclusion!

The CDX/PGPoA Super Review Wars DX concludes today, as JmannDX reviews the S.H.Figuarts Super Saiyan Goku here, while over at CDX our own Doc Thomas reviews D-Arts Blastoise from Pokemon.

So, who won? Y’know, based on the criteria which we so clearly laid out ahead of time.

I’m considering asking around to see if some other toy bloggers might be interested in doing this on a larger scale…a Super Review World War, so to speak…

 

Super Review Wars DX > Super Saiyan Goku (S.H.Figuarts, Bandai)

S.H. Figuarts is one of the coolest action figure lines from Bandai. They take characters that we all love and shove so many joints into them that it blows your mind.

So this is their version of Super Saiyan Goku, or “Super Saiyan Son Gokou” according to the packaging. I’m really happy with the sculpt of Goku, as it looks like it was ripped straight out of the manga and anime. I should also note that this version of Goku is in fact from the manga, as his colors are slightly subdued, and the orange of his jumpsuit has a more yellowish tint to it. But still, it’s cool because he am real Super Sand.

Super Review Wars continues with S.H.MonsterArts Destoroyah Evolution Set

SuperReviewWARSDXHello! I’m VF5SS (sometimes called Veef) and welcome to another entry in the Super Review Wars DX crossover!

At CollectionDX we’re into a wide variety of toys that originate from media properties ranging from the well known to the strange and esoteric. People who have been reading my CollectionDX reviews for the past few months know that lately I’ve been reviewing lots of action figures based on the Muv-Luv universe. What is a Muv and how do you Luv it? It’s kind of hard to explain.

Super Review Wars DX has begun!

Super Review Wars DX is a “review war” between CollectionDX and PGPoA. It’s not really a war so much as a rather obvious attempt as cross-promotion, although I did spend twenty minutes swiss-cheesing CollectionDX HQ with a GE M134 Minigun. All in good fun!

You saw the first CollectionDX review here on PGPoA yesterday:

Super Review Wars DX > Doc Terror and Hacker (Centurions, Kenner) by The Enthusiast

But what you may not have known is that I had a review over at CollectionDX:

Ultra-Act Ace Killer

I’ll post updates whenever a review goes up on either site, so be sure to keep an eye on this link.

 

Super Review Wars DX > Doc Terror and Hacker (Centurions, Kenner) by The Enthusiast

Centurions Hacker 4

SuperReviewWARSDXTechnology was the defining fetish of the mid-eighties toy culture. Transformers, Go-Bots, Robotech, M.A.S.K., and G.I Joe all explored seemingly endless iterations of the man/machine dynamic. The popularity and ubiquity of these lines inevitably edged out similar, respectable also-rans like Bravestarr, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, and Centurions.

There was nothing particularly unsound about the Centurions, just a vague air of mediocrity amidst a crowded field. The designs were heavily influenced by the modularity of Microman/Micronauts, but with a decidedly American flair. The narrative pitted a team of quasi-cyborg heroes against literal cyborg baddies Doc Terror and Hacker.
