George, Ben and Jack are back behind the counter this week reviewing some cool new toys from Disney Japan, a new toy from Leonardo DiVinci?! and Cartoon Cartoon!!


Show Notes

Review: Disney Japan Tusken Raider and Walking Bantha
Motorized Star Wars Tusken Raider. Just a gentle finger on his back gets his legs moving and his body is a rubber type material so the mechanics are inside and it looks like he comes to life with a very natural walking motion. VERY COOL. Definitely a touch of Disney Magic is involved. Also included is Bantha who rides on his back.

Review: figma Toys Vitruvian Man by Leonardo DiVinci
‘The Table Museum’ is a series of figma figures based on famous works of art that almost anyone would recognize! The fifth piece of art to join the series is the Vitruvian Man which was originally illustrated by the man called the ‘Genius of the Century’ – Leonardo Da Vinci. The drawing made in the Renaissance period illustrated the correlations of ideal human proportions with geometry and was referred to as the ‘harmony of the human body’. Now you can enjoy Da Vinci’s work as an articulated figure with all sorts of potential!

Review: Chucky Horror Bishoujo Statue
Kotobukiya’s Horror movie series lineup of characters re-interpreted into their signature Bishoujo style continues with none other than Chucky! Chucky looks better than ever in the new character interpretation by master illustrator Shunya Yamashita. Chucky looks great in her classic overall and striped shirt ensemble and long stockings, but don’t get too distracted or you’ll miss the knife clutched surreptitiously in her right hand.

Review: Titans Cartoon Cartoon Mini Series
From Cartoon Network and Titan Merchandise comes the second wave of blind box TITAN Vinyl Figures! Combining classic and contemporary favorites such as Over The Garden Wall, Ed, Edd & Eddy, Adventure Time, Clarence and more! Plus, returning to the blind box format are Johnny Bravo in a fancy tuxedo and a starry eyed Steven Universe! Each figure is 3” blind-boxed and some come with a character specific accessory. PLUS: 2 hidden chase figures for you to hunt and collect!

Review: Funko Dorbz Pee-wee Herman
What’s the Secret Word? Laugh it up with this Pee-wee Herman Dorbz Vinyl Figure!
Pee-Wee measures approximately 3-inches tall and comes packaged in a window display box.
