Coming Soon!

Rad Toy Review is all about taking high quality photos and writing in-depth, non-biased reviews of hand selected toys by some of the best (and our favorite) toy creators out there. The downside to our site’s focus on reviewing toys (as opposed to constantly reporting about toys) is that there will be times where there are lulls between our posts as we wait for new items to come in. To help ease the pain that comes with waiting, we also bring you some other great regular features that we hope you enjoy. We have The Workshop which features an ever growing wide array of top notch tips and tutorials from some of the most talented toy customizers out there. We have Wednesday’s Wallpaper of the Week which comes courtesy of some truly fantastic toy photographers who we bribe with big toothy smiles for an awesome image each week, just for you. We have our new comic strip series, “Pew Pew,” which is mostly silly stuff from a silly guy. We also recently started our new Rad Toy Review Youtube channel with which we’re working on some some cool ideas that you should start seeing pop up soon!

We hope you’ll check back often. The easiest way to stay updated is by following us here, on Twitter, or liking us on Facebook. You’ll be automatically notified every time a new review or feature goes live.

As for the reviews, here are just a few things coming up really soon!

Kotobukiya’s Zone of Enders model kit review!

Play Arts Kai’s Metal Gear Solid Snake and Cyborg Ninja reviews!

3A’s Adventure Kartel Jungle Vet Ankou and WWR EMGY Caesar reviews!

and more!

Also don’t forget about our Facebook contest. We’re having to rethink our original idea but will publish an update with new info once we finalize our plans! Hey, we have to wing some of this stuff!

more to come… 🙂


Coming This Week!

I’m back from vacation with a few new things to chat about this week.

  • Two new toy reviews! Play Arts Kai Arkham Asylum Batman and Play Arts Kai Arkham Asylum Joker!
  • The Workshop flexes it’s muscles with another tasty fresh out of the oven tutorial.

We’re working on updating this website. The traffic and posts count have gotten as such that the current blog format isn’t going to hold up for much longer without becoming an utter navigational mess. This isn’t something that will happen over night, but the ground work is being laid as we speak!

Mid April I’ll be announcing the details of our first ever contest! Updated info will be found here!

Thanks for reading and showing your support for the silly things we do around here!

Hey folks! Today is Wednesday.. hump day.. etc!

So far this week, it’s been pretty quiet around these parts but there are a few things popping up soon!

Of course today being Wednesday, there will be a Wednesday’s Wallpaper of the Week dropping extremely, incredibly, intensely soon! Like, literally seconds after we post this.

Masters of the Universe fans rejoice.. someone finally got around to taking a closer look a few of these really cool, Four Horsemen sculpted figs. Review = soon.

All new Workshop this Friday! As usual, it’ll be a good ‘n!

In other news.. I had planned to start a video review feature for the site and post it up this past week. Well, as fate would have it, my video camera decided to take a swim with the fishes which effectively kill my idea. But don’t lose heart dear reader, I will again one day procure a camera and make with the video reviews.. You’ll be the first to know when I do!

While the pace hasn’t been as brisk the past two or three weeks around here as we’d like.. In the next few weeks we’ll be doing reviews for figures from Kotobukiya, Play Arts Kai, Mattel and of course 3A. We’re also excited about the slew of all new Workshops we’ve planned to hand craft just for all you customizing crazies.

Thanks for reading!
