Well, I caved and bought two cases and a few extra blind boxes of Kidrobot's new French Dunny Series. I'm not a huge fan of all of the designs, but I like many of them. I was rather fond of SecretLab, Superdeux and Genevieve Gauckler's designs the most, however I was intrigued by Koa's clear-green Dunny and I was also impressed with Tizieu's afro-inspired design because it was different and new. I liked Mist's Dunny from this series, but I was surprised to see that it was EXACTLY the same, sans color, as his 20" release a few months earlier. Ah well, a dunny is a dunny- C'est la vie, eh? Hohohohohoh!
What is Medicom doing to me?!?! I was not thrilled about the Real Action Hero Stormtrooper, but I LOVED the Clone Trooper figure from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I've always liked the original Clone Troopers from Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Finally, I get to place one on my shelf when Medicom releases the "symbol of the Grand Army of the Republic" in July, 2008.
Finally an anime character released as a "Real Action Hero" by Medicom that I really want. Medicom often releases anime characters but many of them don't look quite as good as their animated counterparts. However, looking over this one, I am happy to say that I am very impressed! Sculpted in the style of Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society, Motoko Kusanagi comes decked out in full, skin-tight bodysuit with a variety of accessories. I cannot wait for this one to be released. It goes for about 17,640 Yen. Yes, expensive but I MUST have it.
