Fallout 4 is an action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it is the fifth major installment in the Fallout series. The game is set within an open world post-apocalyptic environment that encompasses the city of Boston and the surrounding Massachusetts region known as "The Commonwealth". The main story takes place in the year 2287, ten years after the events of Fallout 3 and 210 years after "The Great War", which caused catastrophic nuclear devastation across the United States.

The T-51 power armor is a power armor set in Fallout 4. T-51 was the most advanced power armor in wide commercial use before the outbreak of the Great War. First seeing service - and inherently, great success - in the Anchorage Reclamation campaign, the T-51 power armor soon became standard issue for the army's armored infantry regiments. Developed at the West Tek research facility, the T-51 was the peak of pre-War power armor technology. It saw continuous service throughout the Great War, and is thought to be the force that drove the Chinese out of Anchorage.


Threezero presents the 1/6th scale Fallout 4: T-51 Power Armor Nuka Cola Armor Pack. The Armor Pack includes exterior armor pieces only, meaning that it does not include a collectible figure/endoskeleton. It is compatible with all previously released threezero Fallout 4 collectible figures with endoskeleton.

Check out Devil Toys The Ghost of Kurosawa 1/6th scale Action Figure - Gotta have this!

Akira Kurosawa was a Japanese film director and screenwriter. Regarded as one of the most important and influential filmmakers in the history of cinema, he directed 30 films in a career spanning 57 years.

After the mid-1960s, he became much less prolific, but his later work—including his final two epics, Kagemusha (1980) and Ran (1985)—continued to win awards, including the Palme d'Or for Kagemusha, though more often abroad than in Japan.

Medicom Kubrick 2001 Planet of the Apes Set C with Mark Wahlberg as Leo + space pod Review

Planet of the Apes is an American science fiction media franchise consisting of films, books, television series, comics, and other media about a world in which humans and intelligent apes clash for control. The series began with French author Pierre Boulle's 1963 novel La Planète des Singes, translated into English as Planet of the Apes or Monkey Planet. The 1968 film adaptation, Planet of the Apes, was a critical and commercial hit, initiating a series of sequels. Four sequels followed the original film between 1970 and 1973: Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, and Battle for the Planet of the Apes. They did not approach the critical acclaim of the original, but were commercially successful.

Planet of the Apes is a 2001 American science fiction film directed by Tim Burton and starring Mark Wahlberg, Tim Roth, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Clarke Duncan, Paul Giamatti, and Estella Warren. The sixth film produced in the Planet of the Apes franchise, it was loosely adapted from Pierre Boulle's 1963 novel of the same name and the 1968 film version. It tells the story of astronaut Leo Davidson crash-landing on a planet inhabited by intelligent apes. The apes treat humans as slaves, but with the help of an ape named Ari, Leo starts a rebellion.


Medicom Toys released 12 Planet of the Apes box sets under their Kubrick series of mini figures which covered all the first six Planet of the Apes films. A new reboot film series commenced in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 2014; another sequel, titled War for the Planet of the Apes, opens in cinema theatres this week.

Medicom Kubrick Planet of the Apes Set A to H covered the first five films while the newer film released in 2001 had 4 box sets. Medicom Kubrick 2001 Planet of the Apes Set C which is being featured here is one of the four sets mentioned. Set C features a mini figure of Mark Wahlberg as astronaut Captain Leo Davidson, Estella Warren as slave girl Daena and Davidson's simian co-worker, chimpanzee named Pericles. The space pod which sent both Pericles and Leo to the Planet of the Apes is also included.

Action Figure Review of Blackbox Toys 1/6th scale Daniel Craig as 007 James Bond

continued from previous toy blog post...

I did two photo shoots of this Blackbox Toys 1/6th scale "Spectre" Daniel Craig as 007 James Bond 12-inch figure under different lighting conditions and they yielded different results. The previous post pictures were mostly shot in natural daylight whereas the pictures posted here were taken in a studio setting. The studio setting allows me to take pictures any time I want while shooting under natural light conditions means I can only shoot during the day when the sun is up.

I've always enjoyed taking pictures of my figures and that's how this blog got started. I wanted to share the figures I have, and the figures that are out there so that everyone who is a 1/6th scale collector or toy collector can have access to what's available in the market in order for them to be able to make the right decision on which toy or action figure to buy. I've gotten lots of nice feedback from like-minded people who have expressed their gratitude and appreciation for what I'm doing :) It's my passion that has kept me blogging all these years but words of encouragement are certainly great boosters.


This is undoubtedly the most definitive 1/6th scale Daniel Craig head sculpt I have ever seen or come across. There have been quite a number of 1/6th scale Daniel Craig as 007 James Bond 12-inch figures released over the years - check out my action figure reviews posted HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE. Many companies have tried to get the actor's likeness right but missed the mark until now. I'm glad not all the good sculptors are at Hot Toys or Blitzway, otherwise we'll be paying a lot more for this. It's nice to know great sculpts are still available with other companies.

This is my second June 2017 haul after the DID 1/6th scale '90s LAPD SWAT “Kenny” 12-inch figure (posted earlier on my toy blog HERE). There have been quite a number of 1/6th scale Daniel Craig as 007 James Bond 12-inch figures released over the years - check out my action figure reviews posted HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE - but I haven't seen one in a Ivory tuxedo as worn by Daniel Craig in the 2015 James Bond film Spectre. Plus Blackbox Toys 1/6th scale Daniel Craig as James Bond head sculpt is the best likeness and closest to the actor so far.

Jakks Pacific SDCC (San Diego Comic Con) 2017 Exclusive: Darth Vader 20" Action Figure

Jakks Pacific has released pictures of their SDCC 2017 Exclusive Darth Vader 20-inch figure which is painted and packaged to mimic the classic Star Wars poster by The Brothers Hildebrandt. The paint job is amazing and really harks back to the classic image of the Sith Dark Lord as seen on the famous poster. The Darth Vader action figure also features a lightsaber swinging mechanism that is activated when you squeeze his legs together. This item will be exclusive to SDCC and no word on price or if it will be available to non-attendees after the show.


Man I hope to be able to get my hands on this.

Check out ActionFigures.com.sg for past, vintage and rare toys / action figures and other stuff

There comes a time when one has to let go of things that one has accumulated over the years due to a number of reasons: moving on to other things, moving from a bigger space to a smaller one, running out of space etc.

Having amassed so many action figures after more than 25 years of collecting, alas space constraints of my new home have forced me to sell quite a number of them. That’s how ActionFigures.com.sg got started. It's a platform where I can post the action figures I want to sell and where you can check if there's any figure you want to get. We can discuss the price if you are really interested :)


I'll be putting many things up for sale: loose figures, back-in-box, mint-in-box, mini figures, books and publications; so do check back regularly for updates. Back-in-box figures are usually figures I took out for posing, photography and reviews. Some may have been put on display but even then, they are displayed in glass cabinets with minimal exposure to dust, smoke and sunlight. These are pre-owned by a passionate collector who has no choice but to let them go.
