FIRST LOOK – Beast Wars Masterpiece Dinobot Design Models

Tokyo Toy Show is still in progress this weekend in Japan, and thanks to Alfes2010, we have the first look at Masterpiece Beast Wars Dinobot! Right now it’s just a poster showing the robot and dinosaur modes in the form of CG design models – basically a rough draft to help determine how everything will work, before additional styling and refinement happens. And even now seeing a representation of how this will take shape as a toy, it’s still a mystery just how the transformation is going to work and deliver two show accurate forms! You can find the image mirrored below.

SH Figuarts Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales 1/12th scale Captain Jack Sparrow

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (also known as Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge) is a 2017 American fantasy swashbuckler film, and the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.

Bandai has used their high tech face printing technology to great effect here and managed to capture Johnny Depp’s likeness very well as Captain Jack Sparrow. Although I suspect the protoype pictures will look a lot better than the actual / final product. This was evident with the S.H. Figuarts Game of Death Bruce Lee (Yellow Track Suit) 14cm Tall Action Figure which was reviewed on my toy blog HERE and HERE. The articulation looks great as it allows collectors to pose Jack in his signature poses.

All this only makes me want the Hot Toys MMS DX15 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales 1/6th scale Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow 12-inch Collectible Figure even more – see the preview pics HERE

Review: DC Comics "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" 1:24 scale Metal Die-Cast Batmobile

“To the Batmobile!”

This was part of my haul from December 2016 posted on my toy blog HERE

The Batmobile is a state of the art all-terrain, self-powered, armored fighting motor vehicle used for vehicular hot pursuit, prisoner transportation, anti-tank warfare, riot control, and as a mobile crime lab. Kept in the Batcave, which it accesses through a hidden entrance, the heavily armoured, gadget-laden vehicle is used by Batman in his crime-fighting activities.

The Batmobile made its first appearance in Detective Comics #27 (May, 1939). Then a red sedan, it was simply referred to as “his car”. Soon it began featuring an increasingly prominent bat motif, typically including distinctive wing-shaped tailfins. Armored in the early stages of Batman’s career, it has been customized over time into a sleek armoured / supercar-hybrid, and is the most technologically advanced crime-fighting asset within Batman’s arsenal. Depictions of the vehicle has evolved along with the character, with each incarnation reflecting evolving car technologies. It has appeared in every Batman iteration—from comic books and television to films and video games—and has since gone on to be a part of pop culture.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Batmobile is said to be a combined inspiration from both the sleek, streamlined design of classic Batmobiles and the high-suspension, military build from the more recent Tumbler from The Dark Knight Trilogy. Designed by production designer Patrick Tatopoulos and Dennis McCarthy, the Batmobile is about 20 feet long and 12 feet wide. Unlike previous Batmobiles, it has a gatling gun sitting on the front and the back tires are shaved down tractor tires. The Batmobile elevates itself for scenes depicting it going into battle or when performing jumps, and lowers to the ground when cruising through the streets.

Jada Toys released this 1:24 die-cast model kit of the Batmobile from the 2016 movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Assembly was pretty straight-forward and hassle-free. It isn’t anything like the type of model kits released by Bandai where one really has to put every bit and piece together. Check out my recent toy blog post / review of the Bandai 1/6th scale Star Wars Stormtrooper Model Kit HERE. Now that’s a model kit.

In the upcoming film Justice League, Batman will have a new Batmobile called the Nightcrawler, which was designed by his father.

OurWorld 1/6th scale The Silence of Lambs 12" Action figure – Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecter

The Silence of the Lambs is a 1991 American horror-thriller film directed by Jonathan Demme and starring Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, and Scott Glenn. Adapted by Ted Tally from the 1988 novel of the same name by Thomas Harris, his second to feature the character of Dr. Hannibal Lecter; a brilliant psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer, the film was the second adaptation of a Harris novel featuring Lecter, preceded by the Michael Mann-directed Manhunter in 1986. In the film, Clarice Starling, a young U.S. FBI trainee, seeks the advice of the imprisoned Dr. Lecter to apprehend another serial killer, known only as “Buffalo Bill”.

Considered to be one of the greatest living actors, Hopkins is well known for his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor, its sequel Hannibal, and the prequel Red Dragon. His original portrayal of the character in The Silence of the Lambs has been labelled by the AFI as the number-one film villain.
