World of Warcraft Deluxe Figure : Illidan Stormrage

Publié le 28 Janvier 2008 par Hellric dans Action figures

Today I'd like to introduce you to a new figure that I like a lot. I got it from BBTS.com : Illidan Stormrage, one of the big bad guys on World Of Warcraft, made by DC Unlimited.
It came in a deluxe boxed set with nice artwork, as usual with Blizzard productions.

The beast itself is a large demon of 33 cm to the tip of wings, and about the same wingspan. It's a kind of fallen elf, blind, with huge horns, beautiful demonic wings, cloven hoofs, and two original, vicious bladed weapons. There are nearly no articulations, but this is no toy, but a superb statue, and the pose is very good anyway, very dynamic.
It's mainly PVC, with some careful paint application, slightly better than on McFarlane action figures for example, and the wings are translucent. Impressive for the 34$ price tag...


Upcoming products from McFarlane: dragons

Publié le 24 Décembre 2007 par Hellric dans Action figures

McFarlane will release some sexy models in 2008, in the Legend of the Bladehunters series. Serie 1 is for May and features some really great dragons : for example Basilisk, Eternal clan dragon and King Drako are pictured here :




And an example of the new Warriors of the Zodiac line (mix of monsters rom Pirates of the Caribbean and Japanese Super Sentai :) ?! )



McFarlane Dragons serie 8

Publié le 18 Août 2007 par Hellric dans Action figures

McFarlane has already announced the upcoming serie 8, to be released in january 2008. Fantastic and original designs again, even if the water dragon seems a bit odd.

Another serie to collect, dammit :)

Serie 5 Sorcerer and Komodo clans, Serie 6 Warrior, Hunter, Scavenger and Fossil boxed set.

Mc Farlane Dragons serie 6 preview

Publié le 9 Mars 2007 par Hellric dans Action figures

All Dragons fans, hear ye !

After 5 series with the same clans (Sorcerer, Water, Fire, Komodo, Berzerker, Eternal), Mc Farlane comes back with new clans : Ice, Scavenger, Hunter, Fossil and Warrior. And, for the first time, I really love the whole series. Fossil is a pure Dracolich, Warrior an armoured dragon that reminds me Dragonlance, while Ice, Hunter and Scavenger really bring originality in the design, expanding further the Dragon concept.

 Release date is set to July 2007. The boxed set is the Fossil dragon (the dracolich).

Fewture, Devilman serie 2 - DANTE bonus figure

Publié le 28 Février 2007 par Hellric dans Action figures

Yeah, I did it !!! Got finally my last part to assemble the mighty Dante demon from Devilman. It is an impressive beast, wicked, evil yet majestic. Thanks to the Devilman fans of the Spawn.com boards for tips, and extra special thanks to Kondoh Masayuki, great ebayer from Japan, for finding me 7 of the 10 figures of the collection in a very short time !

More pics are up in the action figures gallery :

Fewture Devilman, new figures in house

Publié le 22 Février 2007 par Hellric dans Action figures

Thanks to a great ebayer from Japan, I managed to find a near complete serie 2 of the Devilman from Fewture. Only missing one part to have a full Dante bonus figure now, should be easy to get the missing one (already in travel :)

I also managed to get the black version of the Winged Devilman :

There's also a new gallery specifically about action figures, where you'll find pictures of Satan and Zenon who rejoined Zenotic Amon...

Winged Berserk Garo

Publié le 23 Décembre 2006 par Hellric dans Action figures

You know I'm maniac about wings, so I've tried to add wings to my Berserk Garo. Only wings good for this were those of Garo Equip & Prop volume 7 (Winged Garo). Here's the result, and I like it even if those wings are decorative and certainly too small to be functionnal. But in this configuration, this is really my dream Garo :)

These wings remain as an option, they are not glued, just snapped together, I made a 'slot' in green stuff for them, then pinned them with a metal rod, but no glue.

Devilman Zenotic Amon by Fewture

Publié le 21 Décembre 2006 par Hellric dans Action figures

Here's a new demon that joined my house today. It's a figure called Zenotic Amon, from Devilman series. This is a cheap action figure (14 $ @ Collectors Gateway, great internet shop BTW) but an awesome one anyway, and worth much more than that. Details are exquisite, you'd nearly think it's a resin kit, and paint application is really good, with purple to . I loved the sleek design, with many scales and spikes, wings that come out of some wounds, ear-wings, the small ring on left hand, and the tail ended by a jaw.


The figure comes with a nice, cabalistic base, and also a part of another 'secret' figure, that you can only assemble when you have all the sets of this serie.

There are many articulations there : hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbow, forearn, and even the jaw can be opened. The wings can be open or closed. The ankles are a bit loose, I've put a  drop of superglue to hold them more tightly.

I was really surprised and amazed of this figure, this is another serie I'll watch. Not going to get all figures, but probably 2-3 more (Dante, Winged Devilman...).
