Love the review. I was going to try and get the MegaHouse Ichigo and Rukia as a set but they sold out before I had a chance(T.T)
Hey Rob, I did get Robin and Vivi though and have reviews of them up at my blog: http://gordanham.wordpress.com/​
I also got Clare. I love MegaHouse!!!

Wow, that's just really gorgeous to look at in an artistic way, as opposed to a raunchy way. I mean, that's an awesome pose and she actually looks just like the character (well, other than feet). $25 does seem a little on the pricey side, though. (saves the pictures instead)

What's the size of this thing?

please note that I'll be using the name on the package instead of Wikipedia, and try not to lose your mind over it


The name on the package is probably correct anyway. Kubo sometimes takes several months to reveal the correct spelling for the arrancar names. For example, people have been calling another character by the name "Halibel" for ages, only to have Kubo reveal it as "Harribel" not too long ago. I'm not sure why he does that. Adding a text box on the manga page during an arrancar's debut would fix that problem.

Nice review this week, glad to see you got a figure that is enjoyable. Of course, in my opinion, you can't always go wrong with series like Bleach. That last picture is funny! Razz Krauser you perv! Rolling Eyes

You're married, and yet your wife lets you have sexy figurines? Talk about lucky.

A pleasant review, and Nell did look good. But you do write about the bad products so much better (like Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen). I kind of got the feeling you didn't know what to say in this review.

Oh, and Nell's feet look fine to me. It kind of threw me for a loop when you claimed they were bad.

My guess? To intentionally screw with his Western fans. He didn't start having these bizarre names until after the show was licensed, after all.

"Nell" the movie starring Jodie Foster...yep...no relation to Bleach. Bad joke still made me laugh. Cool I guess if you stretch things a heck-of-a-whole lot there might be some relation? ...hrm. Then again. *cough*
Enjoyed the review as always. And Krauser is such a perv. Though I shouldn't have expected anything else, ne?

I think a picture of Nell Fenwick from The Adventures of Dudley Dooright would have been even funnier than Jodie Foster. But, I'm of a different generation.

As annoying as his weird fiddle faddle names are, the idea of someone intentionally naming his characters in a deliberate attempt to confuse and agitate any non-Japanese fan makes me laugh.

WAIT WAIT WAIT. That goofy kid who we first saw running from two Hollows that turned out to be her friends is actually...this?

...Yeah, I think the truth about "Mr." Yoruichi the cat has officially been trumped by about 700%.

Great review; I've been wanting to see a review of the BLEACH DX Girls line since I've considered getting Rangiku and Yoruichi, but held back because UFO toys are generally a huge gamble.

Or maybe -just maybe- because it doesn't really matter to him and the Japanese audience, because to them the katakana spelling is enough? (Case in point: Hellsing. "Oh, I didn't really think about how to romanize these names, just use whatever spelling you like.")
