Equipment: Synthetic Human from 1000Toys 1/12th Scale Figure Review

Our fascination with robots probably goes back to Fritz Lang’s movie, Metropolis. Over time, robots have come in many forms; personally I think the humanoid form is the most interesting. Much like the “skin jobs” in Philip K. Dick’s work, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, the idea of a machine that can pass as human is both beautiful and frightening.

Many of us will never live to see a world where androids similar to the ones from Blade Runner or Westworld exist. The closest we may ever come in my lifetime to these androids are in toy form. I have several android action figures but when I first saw the Synthetic Human figure from 1000Toys I was simply blown away. I had never seen a figure with so much poseability. The fact that it wasn’t “human” made it all the more intriguing to me. The design reminded me of a cross between the T-800 (from the Terminator) with shades of Sonny from the film I Robot.

Equipment: 12 inch Titan Hero Series Thor Figure from Hasbro

Thanks to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) superheroes are everywhere. I know I have said it before but where were these toys when we were kids? Sure we had G.I. Joes and we could pretend that a particular Joe was Captain America or Thor but there really wasn’t any way to piece together a proper Bat-suit or Iron Man armor for a 12-inch figure. Now kids of all ages can have an action figure of their favorite hero. Needless to say you wouldn’t give an expensive 12 inch fully poseable figure to a little kid. Continue reading
