NECA Series 2 Pacific Rim Leatherback Kaiju 7" Deluxe Action Figure
NECA Series 2 Pacific Rim Leatherback Kaiju 7" Deluxe Action Figure

5.0 out of 5 stars Big,bulky and totally awesome, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't sure about buying this guy at first. I'd read reviews that the Pacific Rim figures were much smaller than people expected and had limited articulation. After taking him out of the packaging, I can happily reject those claims.

Leatherback is one of the largest Kaiju in the film and this shows in the figure. He's huge! I've had to re-arrange my figure display just to fit him on because of his size. He's a very bulky and wide figure which matches his film counterpart... and rather heavy!

The articulation for this figure is very impressive which includes a snapping jaw, fully posable arms and individual fingers that bend. He's difficult to stand upright but if you display him in the posture shown in the image, he won't fall over. The paint job is impressive too with the blue lines running over his body. My only gripe is that he only has two eyes whilst the film version has six. But that's just me being picky.

Leatherback is a fantastic figure who towers (literally) over the other Pacific Rim characters. Whether you want to display him on a shelf or create a fight scene with a Jaeger, he's a must-have.

Gears of War 2 Locust Hive Box Set - Neca
Gears of War 2 Locust Hive Box Set - Neca
Offered by Anime 'N Games | SHIPS FROM U.S.A.
Price: £249.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but Ennervating, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was incredibly lucky to purchase this set as it extremely rare. I paid about £70.00 for it which may seem like a lot for only four figures but you actually get much more than that.

The set includes two locust drones, a Cyclops drone and a locust sniper. All of these figures are incredibly detailed, are much more articulated that previous Neca figures and come with a variety of weapons including Lonshots and the original Hammerburst rifle which is quite hard to find these days. The weapons fit the figures well and can easily be used with other figures if you wish.

The best part of the set is that all the locust heads are interchangeable and removable. You also gets several unique heads which enable you to create at least 8 different locust... including the rare grappler drone and the exclusive Bolter drone.

It's certainly one of the most expensive Neca sets I've bought ( and tracking one down these days can be a nightmare) but this set is must have for Gears of War fans and collectors. You get 4 figures, enough heads to create at least 8 combinations, a assortment of excellent weapons and enough locust to build a small army. This set isn't cheap but you certainly get your money's worth.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Alien figure we've been waiting for..., 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst NECA have produced some very impressive looking alien figures already, the articulation of these figures is pretty poor and they tend to break very quickly. But this version of the alien looks good and has much more articulation than previous ones.

If you want a alien figure that you can play with or display in more varied poses then this is the perfect choice. It's also good for army building.

5.0 out of 5 stars A suprisingly excellent figure, 27 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I admit that when I first bought this dog-lizard thing, I was not expecting such an impressive figure, considering that these monsters are only in the film for about 10 minutes. However, I was proven wrong, this is a great purchase.

The first thing to be aware of is that this guy is much bigger than he looks in the picture. He's actually about half the size of a Predator figurine and like them, is incredibly detailed. The bones jutting out of his face and back look suitably gruesome (and are rather sharp too so watch yourself) and his maw looks pretty unpleasant. The articulation of this figure is rather staggering, considering it's from NECA. His legs, torso, feet, head and mouth are all movable.

This figure may not be a Predator but he deserves a place in any fans' collection regardless. The paint job is marvellous, the movement surprisingly varied and the visage very alien and awesome.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent figure but articulation limited, 27 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being a huge fan of both NECA and the Predator franchise, I was all too happy to buy this figure. The Falconer Predator looks amazing, seriously the level of detail is incredible. From his bird-like helmet to his leg armour, everything is incredibly detailed. NECA have really held nothing back when it comes to accuracy and this figure looks identical to his film counterpart.

Normally with NECA figures you get an impressive looking figure with limited articulation but this guy bucks the trend. Although the articulation is nowhere near as good as other toylines, it's a huge step up from some of the previous characters. I'd love to give this figure top marks but there is one small issue, the hinge of the right arm is stuck in place and cannot be moved. This does limit playability but I reckon this is a problem that only applies to this specific figure. All the others probably don't have this issue.

Regardless of the articulation problem, this is still a fantastic figure that is a must have for Predator fans.


Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon (Nintendo 3DS)
Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon (Nintendo 3DS)

Price: £36.74

5.0 out of 5 stars Luigi's back in this spooky yet spectacular adventure, 16 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's been a very long wait but Nintendo have finally produced a sequel to the enjoyable but underrated Luigi's Mansion and what a sequel it is! This is arguably one of the finest games the 3DS has produced and clearly shows that Luigi is more than capable of stepping out of his brother's shadow.

The graphics are very impressive and the 3D effects improve the experience even further. The controls are simple yet fluid, whilst the gameplay offers new twists and turns at every opportunity. At one point I did start to wonder if things were getting slightly repetitive but then a new feature was thrown at me and all doubts were forgotten. The game takes a good while to complete whilst hidden treasures and high scores pad out the adventure.

The multiplayer is surprisingly enjoyable although you really need more players to get the most out of it. My only issue with the game is a lack of checkpoints and occasional backtracking. Other than that, it's great.

It's great to see that Nintendo are still capable of producing some original titles along with the mountain of platformers and other genres. Luigi's Mansion 2 is a fantastic game that deserves a place in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely fantastic guide, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prima are known for their incredibly detailed guides as this one is no exception. Everything in this game is covered, from all the combat moves to the many sidequests. In prima tradition, it also includes detailed maps and checklists to ensure that you find every secret and reach 100% completion.

One minor detail I particularly liked was the quality of the screenshots used, it made it very clear what the guide what showing you . The guide also includes a detailed description of each enemy and boss you encounter, enabling you to survive every battle. There is even a final section at the back with interviews with the developers and some impressive artwork.

This is hands down, one of the best game guides I've purchased (and I've purchased an awful lot of them!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Vital for 100% Completion, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This guide is essential if you are trying to find every secret in these games and the checklists prevent you from missing anything. I was a little dissapointed that there wasn't a bestiary for the many creatures in the games but that's just my personal preference.

The book is divided into three sections, one for each game which makes it easy to find the section you are struggling with. In addition to discovering all the pickups, the guide will also list all of the scans, ensuring that you don't miss any rare entries.

This book was very helpful in finally beating these games 100% ( something I'd never been able to do!)
