Neca "Leatherback" 7inch Pacific Rim Figure Pt.2

Leatherback is the Kaiju figure produced for Series 2. It's a massive figure when comparing the rest of them.

The overall sculpting is great with lots of details on the skin. Its skin looks realistic.

I have no doubt Neca is very good in the paint work on their products.

As the head only rotates at the neck, you cannot move it up and down. The blue spiky hair is made of soft rubber for safety reason.

The arms have limited articulations and they only move forward and backward.

As the fingers and thumbs have movable joints, these more or less help in certain poses.

Leatherback can't really stand due to its top heavy body.

Similar to Knifehead, you can adjust its lower jaw.

Although the figure has limited articulations, I still love it in terms of likeness accuracy, sculpting and paint work. You may see its packaging here (Next Review: Striker Eureka).

Takara Tomy "Initial D AE86 Trueno" 2014 Release

It was one of the items I got during my vacation in Malaysia last year. The overall paint job is bad as compared to 2013 release. The differences between 2013 version and 2014 version are car seats and colour of the hood.

Neca "Rocky" 8 Inch Clothed Action Figure

The figure is based on the first movie in Rocky series and its packaging is very nice.

Look at the facial sculpt, it's Sylvester Stallone for sure.

The beanie is part of the head which has some sculpted texture onto it.

His shoes are well sculpted. They look very realistic with some dirt on the surface.

You can put the hood up for the figure if you want (FYI, the hood has a bendy wire).

Neca uses the right fabric to replicate the sweatsuit which Rocky wore in the movie.

For a small action figure, the stitching on the sweatsuit is considered very good.

The overall articulation is okay and the joints are tight, at least for mine.

Although the skin colour of the fingers is different from the forearms, it doesn't affect the appearance of the figure.

Lastly, I highly recommend you to pick it up if you are a hardcore fan of Rocky series :)
