Retaliation Ninja Showdown Red Ninja

Red Ninja

by KansasBrawler Hi, my name is KansasBrawler…and I’m a Ninja Force fan. While I’ll admit that the figures had flaws, there were still some pretty good figures released under that banner, especially in the first year. Figures like the new Storm Shadow, Slice, Dice and Nunchuk are all great designs, have great colors and aren’t …

Retaliation Joe Colton

Retaliation Joe Colton

by KansasBrawler Yipee-kai-yay, Mr. Falcon! Sometimes, a toy run surprises you. I called an audible on a trip where I was actually flying solo for a change and swung in to Toys ‘R’ Us even though I wasn’t really looking for anything. Imagine my surprise when, after all their post-Christmas reorganization, there was a fresh …

Video Review: Micro Force

Will and I got together for a short review of some Micro Force figures. They’re a neat and fun little product, if a bit odd. Some folks won’t care for the prevalence of ninjas, but hey, it was movie related merchandise. And I can forgive it because SKULL HEADED NINJA! Also, I goofed up and …

Retaliation Tomahawk and Updraft

Eaglehawk

by KansasBrawler I was a bit of a late-comer to the party that knew how awesome the original Tomahawk was. My brother had it when we were growing up, but honestly, I really didn’t care one way or another. I always preferred ground vehicles to air vehicles because they were a lot easier to work …

Video Review: Retaliation Ninja Commando 4×4 (2013)

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these video reviews. I finally bought the Ninja Commando 4×4 recently, and got a wild idea to do a video. It actually surprised me. Check it out…

Retaliation Ultimate Flint

by KansasBrawler Ultimate Flint is definitely a bit of a tough nut to crack. While I was okay with Roadblock’s ultimate incarnation being a Retaliation figure, I’m still not sure what I think about Ultimate Flint being based on the movie just because his portrayal wasn’t that great. There were definitely Flint-y moments of cockiness …

Ultimate Storm Shadow

Ultimate Storm Shadow

by KansasBrawler Much like Ultimate Cobra Commander, I wasn’t 100% sure I needed an Ultimate Storm Shadow based on his original look. First of all, like Cobra Commander, that look kind of got done to death during the 25th Anniversary line. Secondly, I’ve always had a lot stronger attachment to his 1988 look. That is …

Ninja Showdown Storm Shadow

Ninja Showdown Storm Shadow

by KansasBrawler The Ninja Showdown set really typified the way figures are offered in three-packs. None of them required extensive new tooling…in fact, all three figures were just carded figures offered with different (and possibly better) accessories and in different (and definitely better) paint jobs. While none of the three figures in their carded versions appealed to me, …

Field Report: Ultimate Cobra Commander

Ultimate Cobra Commander

by KansasBrawler Ultimate Cobra Commander is one of the reasons I was glad I just bought the entire Retaliation super wave online. I’m not sure what I would have thought of him the first time I saw him in person. He was a bubble figure. I wound up with a lot of versions of “classic” …

Field Report Friday: Ninja Showdown Snake Eyes

by KansasBrawler Once again, I find three-packs to be the bane of my existence. They usually consist of one figure I desperately want, one that’s okay but one that I’d likely pass on if it were sold individually, and one that I have absolutely no interest whatsoever. When it came to the Ninja Showdown set, …
