Bandai’s Movie Realization line is an alternate take on Star Wars characters where they are re imagined as Feudal Japan warriors. So far we have 2 Darth Vaders, today’s Boba Fett, a Stormtrooper, and there are more on the way. It’s a unique take that isn’t for everyone but you can’t deny that the figures are superbly done for what they are. I highly suggest taking a look after the break and checking out the star of the line so far, Boba Fett, courtesy of site sponsor The Toy Source!

Rounding out our looks at recent S.H. Figuarts Star Wars Prequel Trilogy figures today is Darth Maul. Maul came out a bit ago but has still got some heat due to the fact that the figure is tops. A sharp crisp mold and stellar face paint hits all the key points one would look for in the short lived apprentice. Let’s take a closer look after the break courtesy of site sponsor The Toy Source!
Next up in our look at S.H. Figuarts Star Wars figures is another Prequel Trilogy character – the basic Clone Trooper. This is the first version grunt from Episode II Attack of the Clones. He rocks an all white head with the fin and comes with two standard weapons – a blaster and rifle. Above average articulation and smooth stiff joints makes this piece shine, capped with it’s sharp detailed lines in the sculpt and paint.

S.H. Figuarts has been popping out the Star Wars figures in Japan and Asia since last year, starting with Darth Vader and running through some solid OT characters. They’ve recently switched gears to include Prequel characters such as the Clone Trooper, Darth Maul and the figure we will look at today, an Episode I Battle Droid! The Battle Droid is by design thin and simple, but it still packs the legendary Figuarts articulation in a unique sculpt.

The Toyark’s S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Galleries continue today with Tamashii Nation’s first Premium Color reissue – Super Saiyan Vegeta! SS Vegeta was fetching some pretty high prices on the aftermarket and Bandai answered the call with this. Luckily he isn’t exactly the same, and in my opinion is actually better than the original. The rich color tones pop here, going well with the DBZ Kai inspired colors of previous reuses for SDCC etc. The orange/yellow on the face leading into the hair is distinguishable now, also a plus. The body seems a bit tighter than the original release and due to paint being applied on most surfaces he has a heftier feel than the previous offering (slightly).

Here’s a gallery that really shows why we call this category on the site “Random Photo Shoot“. S.H. Figuarts Injustice Harley Quinn has been out for a while now but I kept seeing her in our Instagram travels over and over from all the awesome photographers and collectors there. I finally broke down and picked her up. Even though she is game specific with a unique look, it still screams Harley. The articulation, paint, sculpting and accessories are all top of the line. And she is now the primary Harley on my shelves. Let’s take a look at her in depth after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Hey, everyone ready for Star Wars The Force Awakens? Good, let’s take a look at a new Dragonball Z figure then. :) Tamashii Nations has released the next figure in the S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z line – Super Warrior Awakening Son Goku. This is Goku as seen in the final battle with Frieza when he turns Super Saiyan for the very first time. We’ve had a lot of Gokus (Gokai?) so far, but this time around we get an all new body and a remix of add on parts. The figure continues the upgraded feel plastic-wise that Gohan and SSGSS Goku had, a tighter, denser plastic with matte paint for the skin tone. Let’s take a look at Super Saiyan Goku after the break!
