2014 Dai-X Action Figure

I very briefly got to take it out of the box last night - word of warning, one foot has two very small guns mounted on them which are almost asking to be the first thing you'll break through careless handling.

If we're talking about the same "Space Firebird", its a work by the "God of Manga" Osamu Tezuka, an animated part of his "Phoenix" saga, so information on it should be fairly available. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_2772I also saw "Time Masters" at an early age (Andy, you may well be right ab...

Thunderbirds 2013 Blu-Ray

At the current exchange rate, 35000 yen would be about £215 or so. The Japanese have long payed a premium for media content; DVD episodes of popular anime used to be 2 episodes per disc (as opposed to the more general Western norm of at least four episodes) and before that it may have been 1 - 2 epi...
