Big Foot Player Dangan-gou by #Bandai , one of the most unique-looking mech I've ever seen. This super cool car robot 🤖🚗 is the star of 2009 sci-fi sports mecha anime Basquash!, my first impression when I saw the trailer back then was "What's this? The skinny cousin of #MegasXLR ?" 💩 It was all about a skilled young boy, the futuristic popular sport BFB (Big Foot Basketball) 🏀, and his goal to cure his lil' sister's legs. Filled with stunning visual & amazing music, the show started great, but somehow bore the hell out of me in the 2nd half till the final 🙄, overall it's an enjoyable series but lacking the proper execution & suffered several inconsistencies especially the animation 😥, though I still think that everyone should give it a try because it feels different compared to other mecha series out there 🔍 Several veterans took part in this project, #ShojiKawamori 🇯🇵 of #Macross & the famous French animator #ThomasRomain 🇫🇷 helmed the whole idea as the creator backed by the famous studio #Satelight !
ARIA & Akari Mizunashi are both in my opinion,the ultimate epitome of slice of life genre 🌟 Beautiful storytelling of a trainee gondolier in Neo Venezia 🚣 was the perfect eye opener for me and really changed my point of view in life ✨ Kozue Amano's 😺 works were first introduced to me in 2008, it never ceases to amaze even today, broke many records in my book and have been my all-time no.1 favorite anime & female-led protagonist since ☝ It's funny because I was always about robots 24/7 🤖 & considered drama/slice of life as a "weak ass sh!t" up until that time 😂! Aria is also one of many important 'gift' from my dearest partner whom I already parted ways with, cherished moment & great memories that I can't never get back, yet it will forever be remembered as the greatest experience I had in life, definitely a series that holds a special place in my heart 🙌🙏
The 2005 Kamen Rider Hibiki is prolly one of the most underrated KR of Heisei era avoided by many 👹 ( yeah the concept of Oni/Demon acully struck fears to children in Japan at the time, hence the low toy sales & popularity, funfact! ) ,but you don't have really have to watch the show to love this piece of art. SIC Armed Hibiki Sengoku Jidai is a limited release that representates the original Hibiki of the Warring States period 🏯, slick design with super-detailed sculpt as usual, and if you're a huge fan of Japanese armor 🎌 or maybe medieval heavy armor in general, this figure is a must get 👍! #kamenrider#maskedrider#superimaginativechogokin#sicfigures#actionfigure#tokusatsu#tamashiinations#bandai#特撮#仮面ライダー#フィギュア#超合金#戦国#戦国時代#バンダイ#竹谷隆之
KBB-MP10V Optimus Prime made by the Chinese 3rd party company #Kubianbao 🤖🚛! As a kid growing up in the mid-90s, I don't have many memories w/ the original 80s Transformers TV series because they're showing Beast Wars 🐵🐆 (which was super cool) at the time. Didn't even get the charm of G1 or even Bayformers until around 2012 when I marathoned the whole thing. Not long after that, I saw the Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-10, it was my dream TF figure (I've always hated the hollows & all those holes in non-MP TF toys you see 🗑), but the size and price just didn't match my criteria of collecting because it's too big since I only collect 5"-7" figures, and then came this 'KBB guys' makin a downscaled MP10 🇨🇳 So I've been curious with the evolution of 3rd party/knockoff/bootleg/unlicensed over the years, and when I bought this guy I was surprised, I never even touched any knockoff stuff before, and it's effin' high quality with all those diecast ! You get many accessories that the original MP10 doesn't, 4 types of head, OP AoE's sword, and the rarely appears Rocket Pack 🚀! As my 1st ever TF, my only complaint would be the Ion Blaster which is just too small 🔫, maybe I'll get something big enough for this beauty in the future, but so far I'm super satisfied w/ it🔥! #transformers#transformersg1#autobot#autobots#optimus#optimusprime#mp10#convoy#3rdparty#tffansunite#mecha#robot#actionfigure#ロボット#メカ#フィギュア#オプティマスプライム#トランスフォーマー#コンボイ
Robot Damashii Unicorn Gundam & Banshee Norn Final Shooting Ver. 🦄🦁 arguably one of the most beautiful 2-set ever released by Bandai! First aired as a 7-episodes theatrical OVA in 2010, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn stunned many with its amazing, crisp visuals and equally fantastic music, though it's strange because somehow I wasn't able to enjoy the series as much as I enjoyed Zeta & ZZ 🙄 The color variant of these two are based on the final battle with Neo Zeong, I love how the Psycoframe glow blended with the external armour 🌈 #gundam#gundamunicorn#mecha#robot#robotdamashii#robotspirits#bandai#tamashiinations#actionfigures#バンダイ#ロボット#メカ#フィギュア#ガンダム#ガンダムUC
1/35 scales Scopedog Red Shoulder Custom by Max Factory 🏭, this mech hailed from Armored Troopers 'VOTOMS' ( stands for Vertical One-man Tank for Offense & ManeuverS 🤖 ) , one of the most successful military sci-fi mecha anime series, spanning more than 10 titles and games from 1983 to 2011 🎊
I remembered doing a 98-episodes marathon during semester break years ago and it was hella fun 📺 ( SPOILER : The ending is basically 2001: A Space Odyssey, mind was blown! ). It's funny that back in elementary, I called this robot "the ugly fat brother of Zaku" 😂 cause I didn't know what it was at the time lol !
Like many other famous real robot, Scopedog designed by none other than the legendary Kunio Okawara 🎌 and the whole series itself was handled by Ryosuke Takahashi, the father of Dougram, Layzner, Galient, Gasaraki, & Blue Gender 👻! Funfact : Votoms inspired many in real life, such as Canada's tabletop & RPG game Heavy Gear, and Japan's Suidobashi Heavy Industry's robot Kuratas!
「勝利するのは、勇気ある者だぁぁぁ!!!」The Strongest God of Destruction, the ultimate shape of courage, The King of Braves, Genesic GaoGaiGar 🐅🐬🐦🐁! ! Super Robot Chogokin GGGG is one of the finest demonstration of Japan's advanced technology & engineering 🔧, despite the delicate design and how chunky GGGG is 💪, they were still able to provide the best flexibility and articulation 💃, enabling the figure to execute all the beautiful poses straight from the film itself 💥 ! Funfact: The 2003 film GaoGaiGar -FINAL- was the first Brave series ever to be funded by #Bandai after the acquisition of #Sunrise , there's a rumour that, their rival and the real license owner #Takara , abandoned the Braves because they thought that the series were a failure compared to the more successful #Transformers sales they did over the years 👻! #tamashiinations#gaogaigar#genesicgaogaigar#superrobot#chogokin#superrobotchogokin#mecha#actionfigure#ガオガイガー#超合金#フィギュア#スーパーロボット
Funko Legacy Rocketeer 🚀🚀, a figure with decent sculpt but poor choice of joints, if not because of the ugly wide gap between the thighs and crotch, this thing would've been perfect 😥! To this day, 1991's The Rocketeer is one of the only 2 Disney movies that I really loved along with Atlantis: The Lost Empire 👌, back in the early 2000s, it was one of my favorite choice in rental store as a kid 💿! Additionally, all the Nazi agent things 卐 and zeppelin in the movie, the super cool German semi-automatic Mauser C96 🔫 that Cliff used, were also the one that sparked my interest in firearms and WW2 history lol ( btw Disney, where's the promised sequel/reboot? I'm waiting!) #disney#waltdisneypictures#industriallightandmagic#rocketeer#therocketeer#jetpack#funko#funkolegacy#joejohnston#davestevens#mauser#actionfigure
The fragile yet awesome 1/15-scale Garland & Shogo Yahagi by Yamato! Despite its flaws, it is my no.1 favorite transformable bike of them all 🎠. This beauty appeared in the Part 1 of 1985 cyberpunk mecha anime Megazone 23, designed by the legendary Shinji Aramaki, famously known for handling Apple Seed, Gasaraki & MOSPEADA 🗾! Many considered Megazone 23 as the influence for The Matrix Trilogy because of its very similar elements, The Wachowskis denied it and mentioned Ghost in The Shell instead 👻! Funfact : Ichiro Itano "Circus" of #Macross fame directed the Part 2! And Harmony Gold used the footage of Part 1 for #Robotech The Movie 🚀 ! #megazone23#mecha#robot#actionfigure#cyberpunk#tatsunoko#メガゾーン23#メカ#ロボット#フィギュア
夜の運河を~ 滑るようだね~ *dun du dun* Tamashii SPEC E-SPT-LZ-00X-B New Layzner by #bandai ! One of my all-time favorite 80s real robots, the 1985 mecha anime 'Blue Comet SPT Layzner' was very controversial for its time. Being cancelled early with only 38 out of a planned 47 episodes airing, the TV series ended on an abrupt note with many elements left unexplained 😥 There's so many conspiracy theories within even now, but the real reason for its cancellation were because the sponsor didn't have the fund anymore to run the show & the poor plastic model sales 💸 In the end, time goes by and Layzner finally gets the well-deserved fame from newer generation, gained a massive cult following, being regarded as one of the 'best mecha series that never got a fair shot' 👊 #layzner#mecha#robot#actionfigure#tamashiinations#chogokin#レイズナー#超合金#ロボット#メカ#フィギュア
1/8 scales Yuki Morikawa & Ogata Rina by #goodsmilecompany 🎶 ! I have a long history with White Album, It's a good drama about idols in the late 90s era 🎤🎧 . Accidentally the original song from the 1998 visual novel was one of the very first Japanese song I've ever listened to back in the early 2000s,without knowing the origin & where it came from until they made it into anime in 2009 📺. Aya Hirano & Nana Mizuki did great backing up one of the hardest NTR series of all time,sadly the original '98 performer & song writer was never revealed because they credited it as a ghostwriter 😩. It's all good memories and I still listen to the whole album from time to time 😳 ! #whitealbum#pvcfigure#figurephotography#animefigure#animegirl#visualnovel#ホワイトアルバム#フィギュア#トイ#平野綾#水樹奈々#グッドスマイルカンパニー
10/10 A beautiful and captivating movie,great music & stunning animation 🎥 I endured the hype for so long,I avoided the 480p torrent,hoping to get an official screening here,dreams come true and it's here finally 😳 ! I took a day off from work so I can watch it! Whether you're into Japanese animation or not,and you're digging supernatural and sci-fi genre, do take your time to watch this film if they're showing it in your country, I guarantee it will not disappoint, not one bit :) ! As a long time fan of Makoto Shinkai myself,in my opinion this is the 'redemption' of his past works , good luck to Comix Wave and Shinkai going for Academy Awards,as a personal favorite I will place it in 3rd,behind The Place Promised in Our Early Days / 雲のむこう,約束の場所 and Voices of a Distant Star / ほしのこえ 😁 #kiminonawa#yourname#makotoshinkai#comixwavefilms#toho#radwimps#君の名は#新海誠#コミックスウェーブフィルム#野田洋次郎#アニメ
Ayyy phone broke since September,some social media & instant messaging apps are almost unusable and I haven't been able to fix it due to the salary being used for toys, all-the-time 😛 *irl rants off* Here is Kaiser Fire,the main mecha from 'VS Knight Ramune & 40 Fire' 🔥 ,manufactured by #megahouse ! Yet another one of my childhood favorite, 90s robot anime intended for kids 🎌 ! Since they don't have it in local channel, I have to rent the VCDs 💿 back in my elementary days,good times ! #ramune#mecha#robot#superrobot#actionfigure#ラムネ#メガハウス#ロボット#フィギュア
