Voltron POP – Value $12.25 on Amazon
My brother and I loved Voltron when we were younger! We recently found the toy that creates one of the legs in our parent’s house a bit ago – lots of memories ensued. This did the same!
Here’s a closer look. We never did get all of Voltron put together.
Robotech 30th Anniversary Epic Superdeformed Figures – Value $10.99
These are little blindbox figures! I don’t know much about the franchise, so here’s a bit about what I was expecting:
After the sell-out success of the Robotech Super Deformed Blind Box Figures, we are excited to now bring you Series 1.5!
Your favorite figures get a chibi makeover in this Super Deformed Blind Box Assortment. Protecting Earth from alien conquest has never been more adorable!
The Robotech Super Deformed Blind Box Figurines include:
– Max Sterling – Pilot
– VF-1J – Rick Hunter
– VF-1A – Ben Dixon
– VF-1J – Max Sterling
– Battlepod – Stealth
– Destroid Tomahawk – Marine
I got VF-1A – Ben Dixon. It’s a solid little blindbox toy – I really like it.
Kids Nations Series TF-01 Transformers Figurines: Grimlock – Value $23.99
For the value of this, I took the 5 pack (they only sell them as a set, and divided by 5). This is one of the most fun pieces in the box and one of two Transformers items (You can’t have a robot box without Transformers!)
I got Grimlock – which is awesome, and it’s the biggest robot in the set!
Grimlock has LED light up eyes!
Takara Tomy QTF-04 Optimus Rare Chibi Transformer – Value $13.90 on Amazon
The next Transformers items is an Optimus toy!
Here it is in disguise.
And in robot form!
This was a tiny little toy, but really cool and intricate.
NXedge Guren Type-08 Elements ‘SEITEN’ – Value $20.99
This toy comes from a Japanese Anime title ‘Code Geass’.
This one came in pieces. It was delicate and a bit more difficult to put together – I didn’t mind the extra effort as it made the unboxing experience a bit more fun! The payoff was sweet too!
Here it is all completed. It comes with a stage so you can pose it.
And finally, a close-up of some of the details. Almost everything on this toy articulates and can be popped off.
Verdict: This was a really fun box from Lootaku! While I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the biggest ‘Robot’ fan, the box was a blast to unbox and put together. The value was there on this one, too! I have it at just a bit over $80 in value, which is awesome! One thing to note about these toys – if you’re looking to buy the imported toys online, make sure to get them from trusted retailers since a lot of bootleg version could exist! I’m really looking to next month’s “Assemble” theme!
What do you think of the April Lootaku?
