Prologue LOTR action-figures.....

Was pretty bored the other day....so I took several prologue LOTR figures out from storage and snapped some shots. Funnily enough, this was the only one that turned out fine (the rest was blurry and was so out-of-focus). Gosh, I miss those Toybiz LOTR days....they're sorely missed together with the Marvel Legends line!

The Avengers #1: The Heroic Age!

Been pretty busy watching the '10 FIFA World Cup lately. I'm still reeling from the aftershock of witnessing Portugal blasting 7 goals past the hapless North Korean goalkeeper yesterday...*poor chap*. Anyway, not much geeky activities taking place nowadays for me...I seem to have been pre-occupied with other stuffs lately. But amidst all that I managed to receive the long awaited #1 of The Avengers: The Heroic Age! Oh yeah!

Oh, it's best to tell ya that you'd probably be better off understanding the whole Civil War-Secret Invasion-Dark Avengers-Siege storyline before you go into this one. For the record, I still haven't read Siege myself, but I have a pretty good idea of how the story went (most probably will pick up the TPB next month too! heheh...) so inevitably this new monthly series is a must for any Avengers fan who wishes to know what comes next after the fall of Norman Osborne.

What can I say....classic Avengers stuff promises to unfold itself. Although it is still early, I can foresee that this new series will kick a** and satisfy even the fans who shunned away from the New Avengers series. Wicked art from John Romita Jr. too. Highly recommended....so get your hands on #1 before it completely disappears from the stands soon!

Make mine Marvel!

Voltron: Defender of the Universe in 2011!!!!

Who lived through the '80s and didn't have any clue on who/what Voltron was? I doubt it.....now the iconic 'Lion-Force' Voltron is getting revived through a new cartoon series slated for a 2011 release.

Marvel Universe: Iron Man vs Punisher 2-pack Target Exclusive

Whoah! This I want!!! I haven't got a 3.75" Punisher from the Marvel Universe line yet. IMHO the one from Series one has a 'melon-head'......his proportions were attrocious! The next version (the Tim Bradstreet inspired figure) from the ensuing wave was technically next to impossible to find in retail back then. My prayers have been answered...and the 'modern-armour' Iron Man looks mighty sweet as well.....nice paintjob. The downside of it is, it's a Target exclusive. Target doesn't exist in Malaysia....which makes it relatively harder for us Malaysian collectors to 'target' (pardon the pun!) this 2-pack set.....not impossible but it's gonna be quite some hunt....*sigh*

Here's a review of the figure pack from fxfranz......(do check out how The Punisher now looks like John Rambo! LOL!),,,,,

Captain America: First Avenger teaser poster?!!! Nahhhh!

This one came from joblo.com's page and has been creating an online frenzy of excitement as we crave for more images from the Cap America movie. Many fans sees this as a fake.....truthfully i do too.The credits are all messed up and reportedly some of the casts' names were omitted. Whatever it is, it's a good fan-made poster nonetheless! See for yourselves...

Crikey! Star Wars Big AT-AT already on sale in Australia!!!

Wow. When everybody was expecting an August release, Hasbro has created quite a buzz down under by releasing the AT-AT in Target stores in early June! Not sure why, but Aussie collectors can now get their hands on the massively anticipated Imperial behemoth before anyone else in the whole world does!

Get this, it's been priced at AUD199....so we Malaysian collectors can more or less gauge that it's gonna cost bout RM500+ if the price range is maintained to mimick the Oz market's.

Now, what was that "it's-gonna-cost-just-USD99" all about? Whatever it is....I better start saving on them TRU coupons!
