I love Jurassic World!



Caught this one on the 1st day of release itself since my son was eager to catch his first ever cinematic 'Jurassic' experience. My wife and I told him how thrilling it was having watched the first 3 movies in the cinemas...something that every Jurassic-fan must experience at least once on their lifetime. So there we were on the opening day.


Now this movie takes me back to the good 'ol feeling of the 1st movie i.e. Jurassic Park in '93. It feels like a reboot (although it's not) because we finally get to see how a fully functional dinosaur theme park would be when opened to the public, something which John Hammond failed to realize all those years ago.



It's heartwarming to see a park full of visitors and that security is not compromised since there is no Dennis Nedry to bungle things up this time around ("Nah ahh ahhh, you didn't say the magic word!")....or so we thought.



Watching a movie from the 'Jurassic franchise will inevitably prompt you for one surety...that things are definitely gonna go wrong at some point of the movie.



Chris Pratt was awesome in his role and no matter how corny his 'alpha' male role was, I think it was a good plot altogether. Solid acting from the man who would most probably jump back straight into his Star Lord uniform for the filming of the second 'Guardians movie right after.



I love it that I finally got to see an aquatic dinosaur (although it's not my favourite plesiosaur!). The mosasaurus is one huge marine dino that'll make ol' Jaws cringe in terror (a great white shark is a mere snack for these mosas').



A hybrid dinosaur with the ability to trick humans? Sure, why not. But it's nice to see the T-Rex coming back on top of the dino kingdom after the Spinosaurus fiasco in movie #3.



In my opinion, the director could've really knocked the ball out of the park had he went ahead and gave cameos to both Dr Alan Grant and Dr Ian Malcolm (maybe riiiight at the end with their 'I-told-you-so' faces)...but that's just me.



I love this movie. A must watch for those craving for that good ol' popcorn fun of the first Dr Grant-led movie. And for the rest of you (I believe there would be first-timers too) just enjoy the sight of the dinos trampling/eating things all around. CGI is not half bad and the use of (although minimal) animatronics brings back that good old feeling of yesteryear's cinematic magic.

Star Wars 6" Black Series....a mere myth?

Star Wars Black Series 6" June '15 haul....

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that most of the Star Wars collector out there, be it in the States or even here in Asia, that it's gosh darn hard to find these 6" Star Wars Black Series figures on our retail shelves. Oh let me just re-phrase that....it's really hard because here in Malaysia, they technically DO NOT EXIST at all at retail. Yup, you heard that right. Good ol' Hasbro Malaysia decided that we Malaysian collectors were better off getting these ourselves through other mediums since TRU and the likes are busy promoting other stuff on their shelves.

I initially refused to believe that Hasbro are not putting these at retail but upon closer inspection of the packagings, I simply could not find any stickers that specify Hasbro Malaysia's import details and such. Thus it confirms my suspicions on the sneaky distribution strategies that has befallen us collectors. With that in mind, the best logical alternative is to hound your local specialty toy stores to find these babies....but with every single collectors looking for them, your chances thin out almost immediately.

There were 6 of 'em in a set but I chose to sell off the Clone Trooper Captain (#13) since I'm trying to keep to my principal of sticking to the original trilogy characters (okay okay I do have a Darth Maul on my display shelf but that's just because I really wanna get the Episode 1 Obi Wan & Qui Gon to go with him....haha).

Whatever it is, I'm still pissed off for not snagging Bossk (#10) when I saw him on my local eBay the other day. I blinked for a moment and he was gone...snapped by some other lucky Star Wars Black Series collector.

'Nuff said.

Combiner Wars' Motormaster!

Combiner Wars Motormaster


I'm still buzzing from the completion of my Combiner Wars (CW) Superion a couple of days ago. Inevitably my attention diverted towards securing the next 'central' figure for the next combiner 'bot i.e. Menasor! I previously bought Silverbolt first before the rest of his Aerialbots buddies. So naturally I had to hunt down Motormaster aka the 'middle body part' of Menasor first before getting any of his Stunticons team members into my collection. Motormaster is supposedly harder to find than Silverbolt (for some reasons I can't fathom) but as of yesterday I have been reading updates on the local TF fb page that he has been seen in some retail outlets, although in smaller quantities than Silverbolt. My better half got me one from a nearby retailer (the only one left on the pegs!) amongst a sea of Silverbolts. 

Combiner Wars Motormaster


He's a repaint of the recently released 'Prime from wave 1 of the CW series (I don't get the concept of making Prime as the 'central' figure of a combiner 'bot!). Usually I don't really fancy repaints but my insatiable urge to have Menasor to stand side by side with Superion quickly put that issue to rest. This Motormaster is however not the one we remembered from the 'Vector Sigma episodes. What I mean is that he doesn't exactly look like the one which appeared in the cartoon series. You see, the Decepticons hijacked a truck with a trailer attached to it but this version of  Motormaster is only a truck cab. Again I am not really complaining but just a mere grouse. It makes you wonder why Optimus Prime wasn't able to incorporate his trailer into his 'bot mode. Motormaster on the other hand....wait a minute, weren't his truck cab only his feet part? In terms of logical size comparison, this should mean that Prime only transforms to about the size of Motormaster's ankles! LOL. (whatever, scale matters not in the TF universe anyway as we all know). 


Combiner Wars Motormaster



Anyway, Motormaster deserves a blog post on his own as I think he is one of the most bad-a** Decepticons of them all. Sadly in toy form, most of these individual combiner 'bots will be displayed 'combined' by most collectors. Each and every of these Stunticons deserved to be displayed on their own (ok I don't have the whole team yet...but I've seen pictures damn it!) so it's shame that they won't get as much display time that they truly deserve. 



So here's till next time. Hopefully I can already get to assemble Menasor the next time I blog about Transformer toys!

Combiner Wars Aerialbots.....aaaand Superion!

#aerialbots #autobots #G1 #g1 #generation1 #cybertron #hasbro #keytovectorsigma #superion

I am rather slow in catching up with Hasbro's latest offering. Most of you have seen these on retail shelves by now, although I am beginning to see lesser and lesser of them Aerialbots in recent times. Not really surprising there as most people are already completing/have already completed the whole team and inevitably forming Superion. Heck, some have already completed the Stunticons and Menasor! I finally made time to take the 'planes out of their packagings today with the help of my son (who kept me sane through out the whole process by asking me questions of the origins of Transformers and such!).

One thing I can't fathom is how Hasbro made Slingshot (Quickslinger) and Brake Neck (from the Stunticons) online exclusives. I might have to search through amazon or whatever later but for now I'm contented to have Alpha Bravo as a stand in for Slingshot, although I'm pretty sure I wanna get Brake Neck later instead of that fugly Offroad. 

Anyway, seeing the Aerialbots standing together makes me wanna whip out my G1 DVD and watch the 'Key to Vector Sigma' episode. I might do that tomorrow when I come home from work...*shucks*. Good times.

#aerialbots #autobots #G1 #g1 #generation1 #cybertron #hasbro #keytovectorsigma #superion

Boy, one sure does get mesmerised once Superion is assembled! Hasbro has shown us that they can do a mean interpretation of the combiners! This, I dare to say it, can give the 3rd party TF toymakers a run for their money, although that 'Uranos - not Superion' combiner figure won over Hasbro's version in term of size. But hey, not everyone is keen to spend over USD300/400 for that 3rd party behemoth, so this is by far the most logical choice collectors have to get the Autobot combiner robot on their shelves. I'm so gonna get the Stunticons/Menasor next because I'm liking what I see so far. And when the Constructicons/Devastator comes our way in the near future....nuff said!

Action-figure display: Sixth scale living room showcase...

Current #sixthscale #display #shelf ..not much space to show 'em all at one go so they get displayed by rotation. Not that I have much in my collection anyway  #hottoys #sideshowcollectibles #starwars #avengers #marvel #dccomics #darthvader #indianajones

I don't have much sixth scale action figures these days. Sold a number of them over the past year but I kept those that I really really want because I know someday I'd be proudly displaying them in my living room and make my guests go ..."WHOAHHH!".

Actually my better half suggested me to put my (one and only thus far) Detolf glass cabinet in our living room because it can break the monotony of a common living room environment. I love the fact that I married an equally geeky individual so there was never any argument on where to showcase our favourite sixth scale collectibles.

I might rotate these with the ones I currently have on display in my man-cave. Ooops, did I say 'man-cave'? Pictures to come real soon...once I'm done arranging that is....heh.

Avengers: Age of Ultron...


We South Asians were lucky enough to have caught this movie a week earlier than our buddies in the States. Therefore I shall caution my dear readers that I might be 'accidently' giving away some spoilers here although it is not my style to completely review a movie in detail. I'm just gonna talk briefly about the movie and if it really did meet my expectations.

So here we go....here are my brief thoughts on the movie:

1) I love it that Marvel expanded the team roster. Apart from the obvious Maximoff twins and the uber cool Vision, I was pleasantly surprised to see several other Avengers appearing at the end of the movie (one even joined in the climactic battle with Ultron and his baddies). 

2) That 'snow scene' at the very beginning and that battle scene in that cathedral in Sovokia harkens me back to the good old Millar-Hitch's The Ultimates comic pages. Those who have the epic Ultimates 'wide-screen' comic pages will know what I mean here. If you haven't then please do so already.

3) It was cool to find that Hawkeye ended up to be the focal point of the movie. Nice touch by Joss Whedon to give him a backstory.

4) Those who dissed the movie as boring clearly didn't understand the build up that Stan Lee wanted for his movies and the plans to eventually link up ALL of the Marvel movie-verse teams i.e. Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Inhumans etc. 

5) I truly love that banter between The Vision and Thor about the weight distribution of Mjolnir. This has got to be one of the most coolest scene from the movie.

6) Ultron turned out to be a 'gentleman-ly' villain and not the psychotic android we've come to know from the comic pages. He didn't turned out that bad either.

7) The decision to prematurely kill off one Avenger pisses me off. I thought he/she will at least make it to the next Avengers flick. They better introduce more members in Avengers 3...haha.

8) I think that the overall feel of the movie echoes perfectly to what The Ultimates intended to be for comic book readers. The dialogue was full of wit, humour and the movie didn't lose that comic book feel while trying to stay realistic at the same time.

9) I'm leaning more towards the Marvel camp myself but that's not gonna stop me from wanting to watch Batman vs Superman next year. DC is definitely trying to outdo Marvel but they have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to their team roster (I'm looking at you JLA and Suicide Squad!).

10) The mid-credit scene was short BUT meaningful. It kinda tells you where Marvel Studios are taking their movies and how they'll move forward towards a common goal. Very cool.

MOTU Classics NA Skeletor, Rio Blast, Two-Bad & Castle Grayskull

I've not been focusing much on my MOTU Classics acquisitions these days. Maybe it’s because at the back of my mind I’ve been constantly conditioning myself that the MOTUC line is coming very near to its imminent end. What a ride it has been since 2008. That was the year when I almost didn’t get into the line. Well, I’m definitely glad I did. I would’ve kicked myself senselessly by now knowing that I’ve skipped one of the most important nostalgic toy lines (albeit re-issue versions of the originals) of my youth. The life of an 80s-themed toy collector devoid of the Masters of the Universe action figures is simply unacceptable!

I haven’t been getting the time to do full reviews like I used to. These days, I’m happy just to shoot a couple of pictures of my toys without actually posing them like they are in some ‘retail product shots’. Like a blogger buddy of mine once said, most toy bloggers are unfortunately sucked into the interactive worlds of instagram, facebook and flickr nowadays thus neglecting their blogs. While this is true (I am one of those guilty of these too!) I still feel that blogging on a real blog page evokes a very strong geekiness feeling as opposed to the other above mentioned social media platforms. But then, there’s always the ‘laziness’ factor. But let’s not get into that for now (haha).

*Laziness kicks in*...how about if we do a multiple review instead of individual MOTUC items? Sounds good to me....haha.

Right. On to the toys. I’ve really been on my best cherry-picker mode lately. Been skipping a lot of the MOTUC releases (although I’d have to pick up a bunch of the Princess of Power figures from my toy-pusher the soonest as my wallet gets extra cash injection) prioritizing those which are deemed important first. Lately, I’ve picked up the Galactic Skeletor (from the New Adventures of He-Man cartoon series) and Rio Blast (one of my most favourite characters from the 80s toy line!). But what amazed (and totally shocked) me most was my dearest wife’s choice of birthday present to me late last month.....

Lo and behold!

It’s freakin’ Castle G-R-A-Y-S-K-U-L-L!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Knock-knock....

I have the Powerrrr!!!!

According to her she found this MIB playset way below the market price. I think somebody must’ve wanted to clear his extra Castle Grayskull in a hurry to make way for some other important purchases so I thank my lucky stars that my wife was able to be at the right place/space-time continuum to snag this one up for me. It’s official now you know....my wife is the coolest person in the universe!

I have the Powerrrr!!!!

He-Man at Castle Grayskull

There's gotta be a backdoor to the place!

The castle has heaps of accessories and play features. I think most of us have read about these already so I won’t go into detail. All I can tell you know is that my 30-year itch has finally been relieved now that I have this baby in hand. You see, I tried to lobby me ol’ dad into buying me the original castle way back in the 80s but he couldn’t find one (or so he claimed! Haha).

I’ll probably get into snapping some pictures of this behemoth of a playset in detail sometime in the future but for now it’ll be a great background for my MOTUC figure shoots. For example, let’s take Rio Blast here for a test-photography against the Castle interior as backdrop....

Rio Blast: Heroic Transforming Gunslinger

Rio Blast was one of the must-have MOTU Classics character for me. But I don’t have much to say about him except that I had such a great time playing with his action-figure in the 80s. Unfortunately I didn’t have him in my collection hence I had to be content of playing with him whenever I visit a friend of mine who seemed to have everything from the MOTU catalogue! I love the Eternian cowboy concept and I always had the feeling that someway somehow this guy was related to the Bravestarr series. This was another dream come true for me as a collector even if he was as late as Castle Grayskull!

Evil Space Mutant Skeletor - New Adventures of He-Man

Galactic Skelly.....or NA Skelly, whichever way you want to call him, is simply a bad-ass figure in my opinion! He’s been receiving quite a barrage of flak from hard core MOTUC collectors due to his bulky appearance caused by his armour etc. Ain’t a biggie for me. It’s enough that he has such a mean head sculpt, way creepier than how he looked like in the cartoon series and that itself is a good selling point for me.

Evil Space Mutant Skeletor - New Adventures of He-Man

I actually enjoyed the early 90s cartoon series and I don’t really care what some MOTU fans are saying or have said about the show. I accept that some fans just can’t fathom He-Man in space and all but that’s ok. It’s a case of hit or miss for some some. Nobody forced you to like the concept but know that some fans actually cherished the show and it forms part of the overall MOTU lore.

Evil Space Mutant Skeletor - New Adventures of He-Man

You can’t please every single fan/collector in the world and Mattel knows this. I believe it’s better (and comforting) to know that for every hate comment they receive for NA Skelly, there’d be double or triple the number of fans actually liking the figure! At the end of the day, we should all be thankful that Mattel (Matty) actually revisited the property and gave us the Masters action figures while staying faithful to the originals back in the 80s (here’s lookin’ at you Hasbro! Where’s my M.A.S.K. Classics???!!).

Lastly we take a look at Two-Bad. This represents one of the last few baddies that I really want to complete my core evil Masters team. I’ve already missed a couple of ‘core’ MOTU Classic characters to some unforeseen circumstances over at my toy-pusher’s end so I made it a priority to get Two-Bad the moment he arrived. I was not gonna miss him at whatever cost!

Two Bad: Double-headed Evil Strategist

Funny how Matty seemed to be giving every each of their MOTU Classics characters their own ‘real name’ in their respective bio. Actually this time Matty didn’t do too bad (pardon the pun!) with names like Tuvar and Badra for each of the heads. Whatever. We didn't give a hoot about them 'real names' when we were small and I sure ain't heck gonna burst my brain thinking about them now. It adds colour to the newly crafted back stories that Matty had been conjuring for us since the line begun in 2008....so let's just leave it to that.

Ok, that's it from The Rebel for now. I'll be looking into another 'classic' MOTU character next. Stay tuned.

Toyworld’s TW-01B Hegemon figure!

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

While I’m technically a Generation 1 (or G1) Transformers (TF) nut, I’ve always avoided any other scales apart from the deluxe/voyager and the occasional leader class scales. My G1 TF collection has always been centred along the main characters that I’m familiar with when I grew up as a kid in the excellent 1980s. Having said that I’ve only recently ventured into a new ‘scale’ i.e. the Masterpiece scale with my recent purchases of MP-20 and MP-21 respectively (see my previous post on this) and that was only because the MP-scaled Wheeljack and Bumblebee were so gosh-darn perfect I almost forgot I loathed the scale difference issues altogether!

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

So with that in mind, I was always in the hunt for the so-called ‘perfect’ Optimus and Megatron to grace my TF display shelf so that they’ll look good standing amongst the rest of my collection. I was never into the MP Megatron. He looks rather frail/flimsy to me and does not give justice to the menacing leader of the Decepticon as we came to know him in the cartoon series (those who have him will know exactly what I mean). For the record, I sold off both my Henkei (TomyTakara) Convoy/Optimus Prime and (NERF) Megatron figures because I wasn’t really happy on their aesthetics. I mean....a NERF gun/Megatron with ‘wings’ & an odd-ly shaped truck cab that doesn’t scream ‘classic flat-front’ design weren’t really interesting to me. Still I held on to them until I got to know that 3rd party companies were actually producing our beloved ‘Bots/’Cons almost exactly how they appeared in the classic cartoon series.

I got myself iGear’s PP-01 Faith Leader (Optimus Prime) a couple of years ago and he is by far the best G1 Optimus Prime outside the Masterpiece scale. I have my grouses with him (recently I got really annoyed with its plastic brittle issue) but he’ll do just fine standing amongst the Autobots for now. I don’t even transform him anymore into his cab mode in fear of involuntary disintegration...LOL.

Right. With an almost perfect lookin’ G1 Optimus Prime leading my ‘Bots, I got to find an equally good Megs to lead my ‘Cons! I missed out on the 1st release of Toyworld’s Hegemon, therefore I jumped when I first heard that a 2nd version (albeit supposedly without an accessory from the 1st release) was coming our way.

3rd party releases are notorious for being pricey (hey, nobody’s regulating the whole darn unlicensed ‘independent’ releases anyway!) so you know what you’re getting yourself into here. Sub-par paint job, risks of plastic brittle (I can vouch for it!) AND odd random names slapped onto the releases e.g. Faith Leader, Uranus, Warbot, Hercules...Hegemon; are just part of the deal. But knowing that Hasbro would never (or slow) in responding to fans’ demand for screen-accurate TF toys will probably persuade you to give these 3rd parties a chance anyway. I personally like the Hercules (Devastator) for its sheer size and design but I’ve always held back from splashing more than USD400 (or RM1500++) for the set. Hegemon’s here was no exception. I sold off a couple of unwanted items through eBay to get him. Pricey....yes, but I finally have the Megatron I’ve always wanted for my TF display.

So how does he fare? Let’s take a look.

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

The packaging is rather simple. I think I like how my Faith Leader (Optimus) was packaged over this one. This one feels cheap with its thin cardboard box as opposed to Faith Leader’s thick ones. Nevertheless it gets the job done. I took Megs and its contents out from the box (let’s just call him that shall we? Hegemon sounds so....weird) and immediately chucked the box away.

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Hmm...as per the 1st release, I wasn’t too happy with the colour scheme. Here’s a toy which has been cast in grey plastic and that represents the main color scheme of ol’ Megs. The leader of the ‘Cons was supposed to look metallic or silvery to say the least. I wasn’t gonna let the drab ol’ shade of grey dampen the look of the mighty Megatron! And so I applied some Citadel paint on him. I wanted a silvery look but I wasn’t too keen on an overly bright silver tone hence I avoided all the bright ones. I think he looks just right with the medium silver grey tone that I picked for him. He looks way better now than how he did when I first took him out of the packaging.

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Megs here came with two accessories. First is an alternative black helmeted head. I’m guessing that this is how he looks in some comic version of him. Cool addition but I don’t think I’ll be ever swapping the head. I like my Megatron’s head the way it is right now. It reminds me a great deal of the G1 cartoon series already. I wouldn’t want it to look any other way.

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

The second accessory is the laser-mace, complete with chain. Unfortunately for me, the chain snapped away when I tried to pry the mace from its handle. After about a couple of seconds cursing my bad luck the feeling immediately went away as I realised that I’d probably stow it away because i prefer not to display Megs with it anyway. So that’s that.

I don’t really want to talk about his alt mode. He transforms into a Walther (or Luger?) hand gun. Everybody knows that. But he is such an a** to transform. I did it once with some help from my son and that’s probably the last time I’m gonna do that....LOL.

Let’s get him back into robot form shall we?

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

So how exactly does he fare against the Generations/Universe/Henkei (GUH) figures? Well, as a start, he looks in scale enough when he’s with his fellow ‘Cons. He towers over everybody inside the picture above except for that Soundwave (that’s not even a G1 version of ol’ mono-eye but I put him there anyway).

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Perhaps the most disappointing (and annoying) issue I have with the figure is that he is noticeable shorter than the Faith Leader/Optimus figure. I mean come on....they’re both supposed to cater for the GUH scale but why in the world would they even be taller than the other? I can understand iGear and Toyworld NOT talking to each when they each embarked on their respective projects but at least Megatron here should be at a ‘voyager-class’ height, right? I’ve seen some customisers adding some height via some extensions underneath his feet but that ain’t just my thing. I’ll just have to be content with Megs and maybe play around with camera angles to make him look alright when paired with my Faith Leader.

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Toyworld TW-01B Hegemon (Megatron)

Well, with that I’d like to end my short review on the figure. He really is a dream come true for most. Like I’ve said before, we haven’t gotten a decent Megatron to go with the rest of our GUH figures. The height anomaly bothers me but I can live with it. Right now I’m rather anxious and curious to see if Hasbro or TomyTakara’s gonna retaliate and give us an official Megatron in the GUH scale any time soon. So far they have been keeping quiet so it seems that Toyworld’s version is by far the best Megs out there for us. If you have the moolah to spend on a 3rd party TF toy then this is one of those surely to be in your must-get list.
