Kaiyodo Revoltech - Pixar Figure Collection 005 Woody from Toy Story

Hey guys, i'm taking a break from Play Arts Kai. It's either i'm backtracking or grabbing some other figures since the next release schedule of a PAK figure i'm interested in is still some weeks or months away.
I just got this nice figure of Woody from GreattoysOnline, i believe it's under Kaiyodo Revoltech - Pixar Figure Collection which means it's got some nice articulation and details and definitely he did not disappoint.

Play Arts Kai Solidus - Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty Review

You know, you don't always get the chance to grab a Play Arts Kai figure of a President, the 43rd President of the USA in this particular case albeit a fictional one. Therefore, i am honored to introduce to you,  Mr.George Sears or better known as Solidus Snake. Former US President, in fact, the youngest one at 28 years old but largely due to the influence of The Patriots, a prominent figurehead on Mt. Snakemore in Shadow Moses,  instigator of both the Shadow Moses and Big Shell incidents, Raiden's (Jack's) mentor, creator of "Dead Cell" and the "Perfect Clone" of Big Boss. Now beat that, other US Presidents...
And therefore should be addressed as Sir... 
Touya of FFM speculates the meaning of those 2 blind areas...2 upcoming PAKs?
Play Arts Kai Solidus Snake is also the most elaborately packaged and most expensive Play Arts Kai 'human' figure released by SQEX so far. His box is actually bigger than the DMC3 figures though it's much more simpler (i.e. no flaps, back story narration, etc). Didn't think i'd get one but since Greattoys Online is currently keeping their prices highly-competitive here he is and boy, oh boy, he's a very. very impressive figure indeed.

Play Arts Kai Dante - Devil May Cry 3 and 4 Comparative Review

I first read about the release of Play Arts Kai Dante from Devil May Cry 3 @ FFM...uh, yeah, that's the more famous version of Dante with the man-bra and sculpted abs...and i'm a bit perplexed, thinking if i should let my awesome Devil May Cry 4 version go. It got worse when i saw that he's packed with all the weapons of DMC4 Dante + 1.
Fast forward months later, i got him together with his twin, Vergil, and decided to do a comparative review instead of my standard review for Play Arts Kai figures. This will mark the first time i'll be doing this so please feel free to add more info and provide constructive feedback.

Play Arts Kai Vergil - Devil May Cry 3 Review

After a few weeks of delay He's finally here, the elder of the Twins and the one who chose his demon heritage over humanity. Dante's brother and his fiercest adversary: Vergil. Play Arts Kai welcomes you brother.
Upon arrival you can't help but stare at the massive girth of the box, almost as big as 2 older Play Arts Kai boxes, SQEX seems to be leaning on the same direction as Hot Toys and Medicom indeed.
Damn! the packaging's good, just don't use it to justify the price increase...
Of course the flap opens and you get these...
