I’m a Deadpool fan and have often thought I’d like to see him turn up in other films like The Last Samurai or shows like The Walking Dead. I mean, Deadpool would be great at fighting feudal warlords and slicing the heads off zombies with those swords.
James Rhodes’ first War Machine suit was a more heavily armed and armored version of Tony Starks’ Iron Man Mk. 11. His samurai variant is no different. The latest from Bandai’s Manga Realization action figures, Samurai War Machine is a walking gunship.
We have this Mini Australian Shepherd that is my daughter’s dog. That naturally means he is really my dog because I have to take care of him. He is pure, fuzzy evil. His name is Jet because he runs literally everywhere no matter if he can’t stop his full-on doggy sprint before he smashes into something.
Late last year we caught a glimpse of Tamashii Nations’ samurai-inspired take on Ultimate Spider-Man. It turns out Spidey is just the first in the company’s Manga Realization, a new line of samurai-themed action figures based on comic book characters.
Feudal Japan would have been way different if samurais ran around wearing hoodies. Sure, swords would just go through them like a knife through butter, but they would have looked damn good. Modern samurais however, can wear these cool hoodies and stay safe… or at least warm.
If Spider-Man was clad in the armor of an ancient Samurai, would he still be able to do whatever a spider can? I mean, I don’t see his sticky fingers working through those gauntlets. Regardless, I love samurai and think the idea is awesome for this Marvel Movie Realization action figure.
Late last year I talked a bit about a pair of robotic arms that had a sword fight. It was pretty awesome to see them battle it out to the with swords. This time out we have a robot with a katana sword and this ‘bot is totally a Fruit Ninja.
It’s no secret that George Lucas borrowed story ideas from Akira Kurosawa’s samurai movies when he created Star Wars. Even Darth Vader’s suit resembles samurai armor. If that wasn’t obvious enough, Bandai’s badass S.H. Figuarts Star Wars samurai action figures will make the connection painfully obvious.
He’s squat, he’s got tusks, twin blades, much honor, and he is on the hunt for Han Solo. He is Samurai Fett. This sweet custom made Star Wars inspired Boba Fett samurai action figure was created by Emmanuel Pérez del Río, and it looks amazing.
Darth Vader is still one of the greatest villains in the history of entertainment. But did you know that his helmet was inspired by the helmets of Japanese Samurai warriors? Well you do now. In tribute to the Dark Lord’s Japanese roots, toy maker Avatar666 created this awesome little guy.
This video is quite old in Internet time, but now that the Wii, Xbox 360 and the PS3 are all fighting the motion gaming war, it’s only apt to showcase YouTube user blaues01’s motion gaming hack for the Nintendo DS.
deviantART member/High school history & film teacher/toy Jedi Sillof loves re-imagining popular franchises by making custom action figures, such as these sweet Star Wars action figures. Guess who the dude with the pointy hat is!
Back in 2007, cosplayer Alexander Lam read about the samurai influence on some of the designs of Star Wars. So he decided to come up with a more explicit remix of Darth Vader’s costume. He chose to name his creation Shogun Vader, referring to the original meaning of shogun, which is “general.”
This is something that I expected to maybe see in Japan, not Thailand. After a bit of investigation, it turns out that the robots don’t serve you sushi, but Shabu-Shabu (hotpot) and BBQ, which you cook at your table.
