Hey everyone! If you follow the Kool Kollectibles Facebook page or the YouTube channel, you'll know that recently we reached 30,000 fans on Facebook and 1000 subscribers on YouTube!

So to celebrate another big milestone, I'm holding another giveaway Pose-Off Battle competition. And the prize this time is the awesome Star Wars 6" Black Series Boba Fett figure!

Once I get all the photos, I'll post them together into a new Pose-Off Battle on the Kool Kollectibles Facebook page.

Judging will be by a 5-person panel consisting of myself, my 6 yr old son, and three Kool Kollectibles fans that will be found from a request on FB :)

Have fun!!! And thanks again for following the FB page and YouTube channel! You guys rock! :)

Takara MP-8X King Grimlock reissue (2nd production run) with Throne is finally here!!

Hey all, it's been a long time since I've wished for MP-8X King Grimlock to be in my collection. I just wasn't willing to pay the ridiculous prices on ebay for the figure. So when it was announced that a second production run re-issue was going to be done, I was ecstatic!

And now I have it, and it's pretty damn awesome! There are a couple of things to disappoint me though, so click on the video to watch the full review and find out all the details :)

Star Wars 6" Black Series Speeder Bike with Biker Scout

The Speeder Bike with Biker Scout deluxe set in the Star Wars 6" Black Series line is definitely one to get! This set is far superior to the Jabba regular version that pretty much has no accessories for the same price!

Here are a couple of pics of the packaging in the standard dull Black Series design.




Out of the box, this set is pretty damn awesome! The larger size allows for better paint app and detail on the Bike, and that clear plastic stand with the three different ball joints is a great feature! The tallest joint is a little unstable, but the lowest one (as seen in this pic), gives great stability and also looks awesome!


I can't wait to get the Sideshow 1/6th scale version of the Biker Scout and Speeder Bike in 2015 and add them to this pic :)


Here's a look at this particular wave with Jabba too. If you have to pick one, definitely go with the Biker Scout and Speeder Bike set!


And here's the video review of the Speeder Bike with Biker Scout on the Kool Kollectibles YouTube channel. Hope you can check it out, subscribe, like, and comment with your own thoughts :)



Star Wars 6" Black Series Jabba the Hutt

Got the sealed case this weekend of Jabba the Hutt and two Speeder Bike/Biker Scout sets. To be honest, I'm pretty disappointed with the Jabba set. It has no accessories at all, and the figure itself is only OK.

Here's a couple of shots of the packaging.





Out of the box, the lack of accessories is far too obvious. All you get for the price is pretty much just the slug himself. The likeness is pretty good from Return of the Jedi, but I don't really like the arm/open mouth gimmick. It really limits the articulation!




The paint app is also a little inconsistent, especially on the left eye of my Jabba where the paint of the eye bleeds into the lower eyelid, which it shouldn't. The difference in plastic materials from the top and lower halves also creates some differences that is disappointing.

For a closer look at the figure, check out the video review on the Kool Kollectibles YouTube channel. Remember to subscribe, like, and give me your thoughts on the figure too! :)


Star Wars 6" Black Series SDCC 2014 Exclusive Jabba the Hutt Throne Room

Here's a quick look at the SDCC 2014 Exclusive Jabba the Hutt Throne Room. Pretty disappointed to be honest, considering this really needs a proper throne and not some cardboard cutoff rubbish!! Certainly looks nice enough on display, but the quality and accessories for the price is definitely lacking.

Here's a couple of pics of the packaging.





And here's the video up on the Kool Kollectibles YouTube channel.


Hope you can check out the video, subscribe, like, and comment with your own thoughts in the set! :)

Takara Masterpiece Transformers MP-18S Silverstreak

Well, I couldn't help myself, and ended up getting the Tokyo Toy Show exclusive Masterpiece Transformer MP-18S Silverstreak! So my repaint addiction continues :)

But this is certainly one that I'm glad to have now! The paint app is beautiful, and I actually prefer it to the original cartoon accurate paint app of MP-18 Bluestreak.

Here's the full video review on the Kool Kollectibles YouTube channel! Hope you can check it out, subscribe, like, and comment with your thoughts on the figure!



And here are some quick pics I took of this silver beauty :)







I think MP-8X King Grimlock will be next on my list, followed by MP-20 Wheeljack, so stay tuned for those reviews soon! :)
