Continuing the discussion on the 4 major 6-inch lines from Japanese figure companies, I now head on to my second discussion which is all about the rather "fresh" MAFEX line from Medicom Toy!

Corner Bites Issue 1: S.H.Figuarts Omegamon - What's Different, Might Be Different and Not [Updated 9-17-2015]

Welcome to the very first issue of Corner Bites! This is part of two new contents that I've been planning for the blog. This one, I've been planning for months now and with a bit of push since Luis (from the fanpage, thank you for your suggestion!) also suggested this, I thought now is a good time to roll this out. Basically Corner Bites is where I tend to give my impressions on certain figures because I love to analyze stuff when it comes to the figures when I have free time and as such, I give my opinions about it and some insights if it's an upcoming figure. And what good topic to start the Corner Bites than to discuss something about the recently revealed S.H.Figuarts Omegamon [Bokura no War Game (Our War Game)], which is part of the Tamashii Web Exclusives for January 2016.

Corner Bites Issue 2-A: The Japanese Articulated War -Revoltech Edition-

Welcome to another issue of the Corner Bites and just before August ends, here's a little something I've wanted to discuss for quite a while now; today, I'll start talking about major articulated lines that I collect namely S.H.Figuarts, Figma, Revoltech and MAFEX. These four are somewhat what I classify as the main 1/12 (6-inch) lines from Japanese figure companies and even though they're not always following a standard scaling format, each line has their own strengths and weaknesses so sit tight for a rather thorough discussion on each line as we go to the first one after the jump!
