Some updates and maybe my own custom chogokin?

What's up guys? My posts seem to get less and less frequent but fear not, I am still hard at work on things which leave me little time to work on my blog. So what have I been up to? Well, let's see as far as reviews, I've finally finished with the Dragon Shiryu Saint Cloth Myth review on CDX which now has a video.
I've also finished the Ultra Act Ultraman Mebius review.

For personal reviews, I'm working on an old-school Godaikin favorite. I'll give you a hint, he's tall and blue and no, it's not Tetsujin...I WISH. I don't think I will ever have the pleasure of owning a Tetsujin unless I travel back in time. So look out for that.

My weekend consisted of travelling to Massachusetts from Jersey to visit with my CollectionDx buddies. We swapped stories, showed off some new stuff and talked about some ideas we had. I got to check out some cool stuff like the Toynami Shogun Dairugger which JoshB recently reviewed and much more. I was also able to bring home some cool stuff which I will be reviewing soon on my channel and some stuff I picked up to review for Anime CollectionDX. They are the S.H. Figuarts One Piece figures. I have a few of those, so if you like those figures stay tuned. What else...

Oh yeah, so I have a friend in Colombia who may be able to make my chogokin dream come true. He will help me realize my very own custom made 100% Diecast chogokin! Its in the brainstorming stages and while I imagined I could make it happen very quickly, I have now decided to take it slow and analyze my options. Originally I had imagined using an existing vintage chogokin as the base for my design, but now I am thinking of getting a full 3D printed prototype and make it 100% my own design, so that pretty much frees up the imagination a bit. It will be an old school type design but I will do my best to make it feel like it came out of a 70's anime. If you dig the idea of custom chogokins, you may want to check out Brownnoise Productions. They've already had a head start on the their own builds and from what I've seen, it's turning out to be super awesome. They've also got a real nice acrylic Unicron base so check that out too.

Last but not least, if you dug those Souchaku Henshin figures I've been doing reviews of, you'll be happy to know that Ive got a couple of Masked Rider figures on cue for you guys to check out.
