El purchaso for Jan '10...



I finally picked up my Hot Toys Wolverine: Origins 1/6 figure from my toy-pusher yesterday amidst wild-spreading fears that even those who pre-ordered months ago are not guaranteed theirs due to limited production run. What's up with that? Let's hope that the rumours are unfounded...I believe many collectors have not received theirs yet. I've already missed the 1st batch a couple of weeks ago, so I wasn't gonna let this one go. More pictures to come....


On the other hand, I've received my long-awaited Mermaid-man....errr....I mean, Aquaman figure from the Alex Ross' Justice storyline thru the mail a couple of days ago. My 4 year hunt is finally over as this figure is constantly being scalped like crazy over at "eVilbay" so naturally I opted to wait rather than succumbing to them scalpers' demands! For the record, when this figure first came out 4 years ago, many were not able to find Aquaman or most of the Wave 2 figures. I guess I was just online over at eBay at the right moment/time. A seller had just listed his on a "Best Offer" basis...so I immediately offered him a ridiculously low price (thinkin' that he'd refuse it anyway!). To my surprise he sent me his invoice 10 minutes later! *Sweet*! He'd even given me a 5 bucks discount for the shipping cost!


My "Original Seven" JLA lineup is finally complete! Now to hunt them fringe characters!

Aquaman tu kalau tak tgk betul2 tadi sure aku ingat 12". Memang lawa pon, no wonder laa harga kena SEKAP.. hahaha.. congrats!! penantian berakhir sudah.. ker ada lagi yg still missing??

>>Asrul....I'm not sure I'd want Logan in his movie suit.....wld be better if they produce the yellow spandex version! Even tho Medicom's done that already...their headsculpt's a bit cartoony to my liking.

>>Bro rock, version 12" dia pun lebih krg je pun rupanya kalau tak salah. Ada dlm beberapa lagi yg aku nak, cam Bizarro, Green Arrow dgn Black Canary...takdala aku nak collect semua dlm series Alex Ross ni...giler! (tak sanggup kena 'sekap' lebih2!) Kat Jepun ada ke peluang nak cari figure2 Alex Ross nih?

>>> Thanks Des, Dash & Mental...It has been a LONG wait indeed for me to get my Original 7 together! I'm just so ecstatic that I finally found Aquaman at a really low price (comparatively against the scalpers ransom prices!).
