Play Arts Kai Deunan & Briareos Review - Appleseed Alpha

GUEST REVIEW: Hey comrades, i should be the one doing this but i couldn't get a sponsor, so let's give it up for Josh Chua, a fellow member from Play Arts Kai Philippines Trading Group. This is his first Guest Review so give him a break. *** Indicates my Comments btw. Let's roll!

Play Arts Kai Appleseed (Appurushido) Alpha is a Japanese CG-animated sci-fi film based on the legendary manga written and illustrated by Shirow Masamune in 1985. The story follows the adventure of two ESWAT members Deunan Knute and Briareos Hecatonchires in Olympus. The series merges the elements of cyberpunk and mecha genres with a heavy dosage of politics, philosophy, and sociology (Source: Wiki). Now without further ado, here’s my take on the figures. I’m not a hardcore fan of the series, but more of a “casual fan” if there is even such a thing, but when the prototype and the colored version of these two was released I had this “auto PO” moment which I did and PAK delivered. Just look at them! 

The box design has the flap cover that covers the window where you can see the figures inside the box and the artwork on them looks nice.

GUEST REVIEW. Hey, look who's back? Anton's got another high-end figure for review. He just returned from a vacation abroad, and he owes me 2 more reviews after this one. You guys missed him? I for one did not, that's for sure. LOL. 
 First things first, this Diecast Play Imaginative 1/12 Scale Warmachine figure was sponsored by Big Boys Toy Store. So yeah, check them out, they're pretty cool.

Kotobukiya Bishoujo Jun Kazama Review

Oh boy, oh boy, what do we have here? I'll be reviewing a static figure? Whoah, is that even possible? I'm officially entering uncharted territory here comrades, not to be finicky but i don't think i would appreciate static figures, being a collector of mostly playable ones like PAKs and...Well, Hello there! Wow, look at, details...on with the review...
I've heard of Kotobukiya's Bishoujo line and i must admit there's something about them that appeals very much to the male audience but i can't quite put my finger on it just yet...HA!
...anyway, my cousin Josh provided this Fa...i mean review fodder from his favorite fighting game franchise: TEKKEN! Here's Ms.Kazama from TTT2, or was it Mrs.Mishima? eh, whatever...
