Sideshow "Commander Cody" 212th Attack Battalion

Got the Sideshow 1/6 scale "Commander Cody" early this week. I was very pleased when I saw the actual product. There are tons of accessories come with the figure including two helmets and one human head. The figure is amazing with fantastic paint work and weathering. The helmets are well sculpted and I have no issue with the weapons. I guess the "usual" complain for Sideshow figures is still their loose joints :)

My photo was stolen...

I often visit Toysdaily Forum and Toy World Forum for latest news about any 1/6 scale release. A few days ago, I was shocked when browsing through Toy World Forum. Someone named STEAMBOY used my photo to support his repaint work without asking my permission or link the photo back to my blog. He even inserted his blog address in the bottom of the photo (original photo of mine). Though this is just a simple photo, I just feel it is a basic courtesy to ask for the owner’s permission or at least do a link back to the owner. He is obviously not a rookie for blogging. He should know the "so-called" rules when posting any photos that are belonged to others in his blog or forum.

WWE "Sheamus" Mattel Elite Series 8

Similar to Drew McIntyre in Elite Series 8, I love the championship belt as it is pretty well made. Unfortunately the front circle piece with WWE logo cannot be rotated. The head sculpt did resemble "Sheamus" but facial likeness is "okay" only. Anyway, I am still pleased with the over all paint job on the figure :)

WWE "Drew McIntyre" Mattel Elite Series 8

This is the second McIntyre figure I got for my wrestling collection. I like the Intercontinental Championship belt that comes with the figure. It is definitely a well made accessory. You may see my first McIntyre figure here.

Hasbro Leader Class DOTM "Sentinel Prime"

This is the first DOTM transformer I got for my collection. He is leader class Sentinel Prime by Hasbro. I like the articulation of the figure and he looks great to me. I am sure he is able to hold lots of great poses in robot mode. I will take more photos on him if time allows.

Enterbay "T Bag" in Prison Break

Seriously, I have lost confidence in Enterbay figures for quite some time until their recent release "Onimusha 3". When I saw the actual head sculpt of T Bag, I was pleased with the great paint job and sculpting work done by Enterbay. The head sculpt has very good likeness to "Robert Knepper" in "Prison Break" drama series. The eyes, eyebrows, lips, moustache and hair are well sculpted with realistic colour application. The texturing work on facial skin is also nicely executed and we could even see veins on both sides of the forehead.

As for the outfits, they are perfectly fit to the figure. The pink stripes with floral pattern shirt is my favourite. The boots have some weathering as well. The accessories are few bundles of cash, a dagger, one left gripped hand, one left prosthetic hand, a pair of handcuffs, a set of prison outfit and a display stand. Over all, I am very happy for getting this figure and Enterbay has improved in making the accessories too. The only complain to me is the pricing of the figure. I personally think Enterbay has over charged it as there are not much accessories we can get from this release. My part 2 review is here.
