New Trailer for Saban’s POWER RANGERS Shows ALL!


You know all the toy-reveals we’ve been treated to online all this time? They are real. The new POWER RANGERS reveals everything this round - from Bryan Cranton’s voice of “Zordon” heard, to the “Alpha 5” robot appearing, from the crew morhping into full suits, to the Zords and Megazord fighting Rita Repulsa and her alien cronies! They even cracked a “Black Power Ranger” joke.

At this point, I’m trying not to “over-think” this film (“Max Steel” unfortunately still buzzing in my headspace OMG), and embrace it for what it is (a film to sell “TOYS”, perhaps?), and not what folks hope it to be … letting it be what folks choose to see this revitalised super-sendai concert to be, and will be.

SABAN’S POWER RANGERS premieres in the U.S. March 24th, hits Singapore screens on March 23rd, 2017.

2nd Trailer for LOGAN Amps Up The Action, Bloodshed & Cussing FTW!

"In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces." (IMDb)

The latest trailer for LOGAN has dropped, and has immediately converted me into a fan, and I cannot wait for this film to premiere March 3rd in the USA, March 2nd, 2017 in Singapore.

While the earlier trailer and scenes provided a somewhat dismally slow and unadventurous mood, the latest turn of visual events sees a whole lot more bloodshed, and a decent amount of cussing defits a movie about a berserker (or in this case, a former berserker), AND that scene with the X-Men comicbooks? BRILL.

Harley Quinn (Prisoner Version) in 1/6 by Hot Toys

Remember Hot Toys’ first 1/6 scale figure release for Suicide Squad’s HAREY QUINN? Well, there’s a NEW Harley Quinn in town! Introducing the “PRISONER VERSION” of HARLEY QUINN! So successful is the franchise, that Hot Toys chooses to release this incarnation Margot Robbie's “Harley”, as seen in the last scene of the film, as she sips her espresso, before being busted out by … aaaah, that would be spoiling story! Although if HT releases THAT character in the suit…?

HOT TOYS PRESS: ""Come on, I'm bored... Play with me!"

In the DC Extended Universe blockbuster Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn makes her entrance as a convict serving time in the Belle Reve Prison, where she is reluctantly enlisted in a secret task force doing dangerous dirty work for the government. Sultry but outright psychotic, the Queen of Gotham City is unmistakably the star in this ragtag team of supervillains, and today Hot Toys is excited to introduce an all-new 1/6th scale collectible figure of Harley Quinn in her prisoner outfit!

Expertly crafted based on Margot Robbie's appearance as Harley Quinn in the film, this movie-accurate collectible figure features a newly sculpted head, a newly developed specialized body with enhanced leg articulations, finely tailored prisoner costume, a variety of accessories she enjoys as a "privileged" inmate, and a specially designed figure stand with character backdrop and a removable prison cell mattress."

TOYSREVIL’s #DEBOX (19.1.2017 Edition)



In this week’s edition of TOYSREVIL’s #DEBOX, I go thru one of my boxes of “toy treasures”, and discover 1/6th-scaled loose parts, props and clothes, including a “surprise” figure I’ve since forgotten I owned!

And as well “showcase” the archaic storage solution known as “Plastic Bag World” - where each plastic bag’s contents might represent a purchase from a singular place, singular time, but remain in said plastic bag even after purchase - the contents forgotten as soon as they had been purchased!

Besides being the obvious “forgetful”, I reckon tis also another Singaporean-trait I am guilty of - at least when it comes/came to toy - “Buy It First, In Case You Need To Use It Later” AKA “Kiasu” (Meaning: “Scare to loose out” in Singlish). And thusly, a myriad of kit bashing projects lay unfinished, because I had not finished them with the parts that I have purchased thru the years!

DEBOX 19 IG

The contents in this box are in-between 7 to over 10 years old (probably), while the box itself is at least 6 years old … My brother and sister had tirelessly worked to pack all my toys into boxes and stored into a room, whereby I could have free space to move around at home in my wheelchair, after my return home in end-2010, after staying and rehabilitating in hospital for my Stroke in late-2010.

Cheers, and have a fab toy-day!

Stay connected to his Instagram @frankmysterio for further updates!



I had asked Frank for the Origin of the figure, and that if he was a part of the "same universe" as Anticristo666 (which was sculpted by Chauskoskis), and that if we will be seeing more colorway editions of 原始的なモンスター Primitive monster? Or just hand-paints? This is his reply;
"The Primitive Monster arose from a work in the aftermath of antichisto666, (I had) wanted to make a new vinyl toy, (that) was designed and sculpted by myself, and was a totally bizarre beast ... (he) is not a brother of the antichristo but it is a beast abstract ... for now the unpainted version is on sale, but next will be mini series hand painted by me and artists from all over the world."

JAVIER JIMENEZ for #ByeBye2016Hello2017

WHAT-IS: TOYSREVIL asked a few select folks how their year was in 2016, and what plans are ahead for 2017! Stay tuned to continued coverage of JAVIER JIMENEZ on #TOYSREVIL!


TOYSREVIL: How was 2016 for you? Share with us your most triumphant moment in 2012. Any disappointments you’d like to share with us?
JAVIER JIMENEZ: “Now that I get to look back at 2016 in full, I’m amazed by how much stuff I’ve made!

Last year saw a lot of StickUp Monsters releases, including two new mini figures: the Ghost Bat and Maneki Wananeko. But most important, I was finally able to wrap up my Indiegogo project and ship all the last rewards to my backers after some serious factory delays.

Of course I traveled to a couple of toy conventions. This year it was ToyCon UK in London and Taipei Toy Festival in well, Taipei. It was my first time at both and I had a blast! It was also my first time in Taiwan and fans made it really special. Their love and enthusiasm for toys is amazing!

I did a couple of conventions in Spain too, but I was mostly trying to show my toys rather than sell them, since here people don’t really collect or even understand toy collecting. I’m just glad I was able to raise a bit of interest in some people.

As for disappointments, I guess the only one I had was not visiting Japan for the first time after going 3 years in a row.”

TOYSREVIL: What is your most favorite toy, or piece of art you've seen in 2016?
JAVIER JIMENEZ: “One that definitely stands out for me, though I do not own it, is the mixed parts version of King Korpse by James Groman and Instinctoy.”

During my talk on vinyl toys and sofubi at Madrid Gaming Experience IFEMA. Vinyl toys are very unknown in Spain. Most people see them and think they are just cheap bootleg toys, so they freak out at the prices. Everytime I have the chance I try to show these toys to people and make them understand that there's way more behind these toys than what they see. In this talk I touched just a bit of vinyl toys history, showed them what's popular right now and why it's popular, and I also showed them how they are made (but just sofubi) and painted. The feedback was really positive and I hope this brings more collectors to the scene. But what I'm sure about is that at least the people who listened to my talk will now respect vinyl toys as an art. A big THANK YOU to everyone who came by to listen. I was honestly hoping just a few guys but in the end almost all seats were full! #stickupmonsters #sofubi #vinyltoys #javierjimenezxl #toys

TOYSREVIL: What are you most looking forward to in 2017? Any plans for your work, for the new year you can share with us? Or not share with us, but can tease us with?
JAVIER JIMENEZ: “2017 is a very promising year for StickUp Monsters! For now, I’ve already plans to be at ToyCon UK and TTF again. There will be another surprise for Taiwan fans and I might also visit Japan again.

As for toys, we’re currently finishing the sculpt of a new figure and working on some new characters for a new project. There’s a lot going on right now and I hope to be able to show some stuff soon.”

(Latest colorway of Tiger Boss with Max Toy Co that has since Sold Out)

TOYSREVIL: Share with us, WHO you are and what you do?
"I am Javier Jimenez of StickUp Monsters, and I love creating my own characters and turning them into toys. These toys are made in either Japanese soft vinyl or in resin and hand painted by myself.
