The Loyal Subjects Decepticon Bonecrusher

Constructicon Bonecrusher 



The Loyal Subjects is quickly becoming a company to watch with toy lines that are going to grab every one's attention. Today we are going to look at the Constructicons Bonecrusher figure.  Bonecrusher has a great G1 look to him with nice details that remind you of the toy you probably had as a kid.  One of the first things that came to mind with this figure is I have my devastator in combiner mode, and with these figures I am able to have them in that cool single robot mode look.  He comes with 3 separate pieces to complete his look along with his tech card.  The gun, front Decepticon symbol and the hood of the bulldozer on his back.

NECA NES Godzilla Figure Review

GODZILLA: MONSTER OF MONSTERS



The NES Godzilla is a figure that we have been patiently anticipating for a looong time. We first laid eyes on this work of art all the way back in September when we were at NECA studios. As soon as we saw this we immediately knew that this was going to be a hit. It is so different from any of the other VGA figures and the paint, pixels, and details are fantastic. Now the game may have sucked, but this figure is AWESOME!

Packaging:

The NES Godzilla comes in the usual window box which is stylized to look like the original NES game packaging. The box is a little bit wider than the ones used for past NECA VGA action figures. The cover art is spot on as usual. When you open up the box the left side has a picture from the main hex grid screen which is where the monsters and levels are in the game. NECA's license with TOHO is very specific and only applies to Godzilla. For that reason, NECA had to improvise with the grid because they are restricted from using any other of the monsters. They did a good job with this despite not having access to the other monsters. The right side of the box is the window with the figure. The top has the health/power bar. There is also a pixelated background behind the figure.

NECA ALIEN Ripley Jumpsuit Figure Review

Jumpsuit Ripley

This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.

"In space, no one can hear you scream....."

This is the figure that all ALIEN fans have been waiting for for such a long time. It is awesome to know that Randy Falk doesn't give up easily, and that he will aggressively pursue and try all avenues in order to get a figure made. If I were Sigourney Weaver I would be ecstatic about these figures. The sculpt and likeness is amazing. 

Packaging:

Jumpsuit Ripley comes in the standard ALIEN packaging that we are all accustomed to. The front shows the figure with the accompanying accessories and the back shows the other figures that are also available in this wave.

The Loyal Subjects: Transformers Laserbeak Review

Decepticon Laserbeak


When we went to Toyfair this past February one of the companies we got to see up close was The Loyal Subjects. They had a lot of great items on display that really caught our eye with a few different lines.  We were finally able to get our hands on some of these very unique figures and they really don't disappoint. I think a lot of collectors are always looking for new things that are unique to add to their collection.  A lot of us just don’t have enough space to buy and put out all of the things we love.  That’s one of the best things about The Loyal Subjects line, that they are detailed, made well, and don't take up a ton of space.  We will be reviewing some of their items over the next week or two to give you a up close look at the amazing collectibles they are putting out.
