Finally, The Rock has come back… wait wrong rock. Today we are taking a look at the Tamashii Nations Effect Rock. These are modular pieces that start as smaller rocks, combine up to half mounds, and then finally into a circular boulder. How you use or display them is up to you. They can be rubble scattered around, a base for a figure, or a huge thing in the background of your photography or display shelves. They use peg connectors to fit together, and when not combined they can take a standard Tamashii Stage stand in the ports. So you can have your figures hovering or dynamically posed, using any one of the pieces as a weight. Overall it’s a great accessory piece that is useful for displays. We’ve taken shots showing some of what it can do with different figures after the break, read on to check em out!
They are out now in Japan and at US retailers including some of our sponsors below!
Finally… the day you’ll take your final breath… Saiyan. Goku Black has landed in the S.H. Figuarts Dragonball series for all mortals to revel in his glory. I’ll skip the character backstory for those watching the US editions and are not fully caught up, but Goku Black is the big baddie in the current season of Dragonball Super. He’s responsible for the destruction of future Earth, triggering Future Trunks to return to the past and seek help, again. He doesn’t like mortals, and especially doesn’t like Goku. His power is beyond anything the heroes have faced, and he’s even pushed to a new form of Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan Rose, hence the pink hair alternate head included in this release.
The figure is top tier S.H. Figuarts head to toe, full range of articulation, solid colors and sculpting. He comes with Super and standard heads, 2 faces each. 3 sets of hands, plus 3 additional right hands. To cap it off he has an energy blade which attaches to the hand and a purple Kamehameha energy ball. Plastic quality is good. A slight negative is a tad too short neck. He uses the upgraded articulation tech which features double jointed knees, more complex hip gears, forward rotation shoulder joints and a torso joint.
All in all, he’s an awesome character and welcome addition to the line up, filling out the Super ranks. He’s out now in Japan, and should be at US retailers soon! Read on to check out over 55 HD shots showing what he can do!
