While the bitter and angry reviews are more entertaining, it's good to hear about an actual good figure that you come across every now and then.

I also love the mean quality of these reviews but am always hoping for a toy I can't resist - thanks Mr. Bricken!

That looks so awesome. It looks like the kind of thing I would've loved as a kid. Who am I kidding? It's the kind of thing I'd love now!

That mecha is so many different shades of awesome. Don't mess with a frog in a giant (er...bigger than him, at least) robot! Smile

I never really liked Sgt. Frog all that much, having read the first volume of the manga and sampled a few episodes of the anime, but I can't deny that this is one high quality figure. It's good to see you happy with something for once.

I remember seeing these things on ebay and wondering if they were really worth the 50$ price tag (especially since I only have enough money for one awesome keroro figure every 6 months or so and at the time I was more impressed with the beautiful Angol Mois figure megahouse made)

looks like I'll have to start saving up my pennies again Anime hyper thanks for the review

also, for anyone else interested, there's also one for Giroro and Garuru of this same series (I couldn't find anyone else, so I'm not sure)

I think it would be funner to get the Keroro model kits. There are many and they are cheap too.

Holy crap if you look at it from far away and squint your eyes just right and look at it in dim lighting...

Sgt. Frog IS PILOTING A LEO!

This figure makes me happy. I'm not into figure collecting, I only read these reviews for entertainment, but this is something I might actually want!

in fact, making the incredibly arms swivel without risking damage

Should that be "incredibly tiny"?
