Fwoosh Weekly: Amazing Yamaguchi Magneto, Hascon Star Wars Captain Rex, MAFEX, and Bandai Model Kits!

Okay, not a lot to talk about this week but I still manage to ramble on for more than ten minutes. What in the hell is wrong with me? But let’s talk about a tiny, tiny bit of Medicom MAFEX, a smidge of Hasbro’s HasCon early release Star Wars Black Series Captain Rex, a lot about Kaiyodo’s Amazing Yamaguchi Magneto, and some oddball non-newsy type Bandai model kit. Yup.

  1. Clockwork Orange wowzers….Alex Delarge is my idol. A must for any charismatic psychopathic narcissist.

    How interesting this was. No idea this was coming out. I know their was a previously announced 12″ RAH version but excited to see this smaller scale. I like Mafex venturing out to other unexplored aspects. Similar to what figuarts and NECA are doing. To a lesser extent Figma has some fantastic pieces but their scale is really hard to fit anywhere but on its own shelf.

    All these great figures has me reconsidering the Legends sadly. A lot of dynamic movie figures with great sculpts. At this point the Movie Legends are taking a big chunk of my space and I am seemingly dedicating less time to the comic book legends.

    I have enough Troopers. I may skip Rex and every armour character from now on. Just too much and too little distinction between each.

  2. Ah. I must have misinterpreted what you meant by what you were saying in that section of the vid.

    With that in mind, I’m guessing that they have some samples ready, not just the one they showed off at SDCC. Enough for Hascon at least. I mean, outside of packaging, the SDCC releases they’ve been putting out have not been any different to the regular release. The bottom of the FO Stormtrooper’s feet being the only exception I can think of at the moment.

  3. My wondering isn’t so much character choice than it is about the photo real tech. Will it be on this one? Is it ready? Why not show it?

  4. I only really have thoughts on Rex. First, I’m looking forward to seeing him when he hits retail. Second, why they’re releasing him early this way: They have samples ready. Why not release him around the same time at regular retail then? They have, what, a dozen or more figures ahead of him to release? But what about the new Rey since she has the same new technique, why is she being released first at regular retail? Who’s more visible to the general public right now? A clone that was probably never in the movies and only Wars fans who watched the Clone Wars know or, arguably, the main character of the Sequel Trilogy.

    The reasoning is pretty simple when you think it through, and are patient enough to wait.
