Star Wars' Toys Carnival @ E Curve, 29 May '10......

As with most Lucas devotees, together with my wife and a couple of our fellow collector buddies, I too was highly anticipating this so-called '30th Anniversary Celebrations of the Empire Strikes Back movie' ("ESB"). Well, don't let the title fool ya'll. There ain't no toys fer sale nor any freebies given during the event. In fact, I believed many had the impression that there was gonna be some sort of discounted Star Wars stuffs on sale. 'Twas too early for the release of the recently-announced vintage carded figures. All we knew was that it had something to do with the 30th anniversary of ESB. I got my money on Hasbro to reveal or rather 'preview' the upcoming Star Wars figures and vehicles.

MOTUC acquisition for May '10....

May '10 was supposed to be THE month where some MOTUC collectors battle online to get the 'supposedly' coveted giant-sized Tytus figure and the 'I-couldn't-care-less-about-it' NA figure, Optikk. For me, I was only looking forward to get the re-issue figure of the month, Mer-man. Being a fan of the Filmation cartoon series first, rather than the 'expanded' MOTU universe, my immediate focus is to get hold of the characters which appeared in the much beloved cartoon series....which means that, to put it in the most subtle words I could think of....I don't give a r** a** about Tytus and Optikk....LOL!

Me' latest 3.75" figures....X-'dudes' are in da house!

I must say, I get more and more impressed with the 'minified' Marvel Legends action figures. The latest series (I think it's Series 2 for 2010) presents us with a list of cool characters from the X-Men universe, save for one which is the AIM Soldier (was quite a pretty ridiculous character if ya ask me, bright yellow and all...even his own bio says so!). The ones most scalpers went for first were Colossus, Juggernaut and the ultra-rare Archangel (which was purposely shortpacked by Has-blow...only ONE per case). Havok, one the other hand, was also limited to only one per case, which technically made it as rare as 'Archie'....but I'm still seeing him all over the various TRUs in town, so I guess he wasn't that important to those gosh-darn scalpers! Nevertheless, a fellow good buddy collector of mine got me Juggernaut and Colossus....so I needed to hunt 'Archie' on my own.

Ah, it's been a while (again!).....

Wow! It's been a good two weeks or so since I last posted my last entry. How time flies. I was pretty tied up with work and stuffs (who isn't anyway, hahhah).....but even those didn't stop me from being a geek and getting an array of pop culture items that I love oh-so-much! So here they are...in no order of preference (nor dates of purchase...coz I can't bloody remember any of those! LOL!).

Star Wars: C-3PO Mimobot 4GB USB pendrive

I got a surprise of my life when my in-laws came back frm HK the other day and brought me home this interesting piece of Star Wars memoribilia. It's a 4GB C3-PO 'Mimobot' USB pendrive (what in the world is a mimobot anyway?). It's already loaded with a string of SW wallpapers and avatars. I haven't checked them out yet but according to my brother in law (who got the same pendrive himself) they're pretty cool!

May the FOURTH be with you....Happy Star Wars Day!!!

Technically it's already the 5th over here in most part of Asia today. But hey, it's still the 4th over at the States and I'm pre-tty sure our fellow geek-fans in Uncle Sam's land are celebrating it somehow. Nope, unfortunately they'd have to go to work.....it's still an unofficial holiday.....*bummer*. IMHO, if millions of people around the world congregate (albeit spiritually) and celebrate something in unison, that's good enough for governments around the world to declare a national holiday....right? LOL!

To further illustrate the celebration as practised by most SW geeks around the globe, an excerpt from wookiepedia:

"Typical festivities consist of inviting fellow Star Wars-obsessed friends to stay over, and then watching the series in succession. Lots of snacks, bring lightsabers and Star Wars-themed toys. Lightsaber fights in the early morning hours optional."

My 3.75" men of IRON!

Well, after some gruelling period of hunting down the figures that I really want from the Iron Man 2 wave of action figures, it's a fitting time to finally group them together and snap some pictures. I don't collect every single figure from the series.....and didn't plan to from the beginning anyway. Just cherry-picked the ones that caught my eyes. I like group figure shots. The different colours and armour designs really show how truly unique each characters are. I'll stop yapping now and let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy.....

More 3.75" Marvel action figures for my display shelf.....

ARGGH! What have I gotten myself into? More of these superb 3.75" action figures have found their way to into my hands. Dare I say it, IMHO I think some of these Iron Man figures are even better than their 6" counterparts we've seen from the first Iron Man movie. Those 6" action figures if anybody could recall, were just endless repaints from the same basic Iron Man mould. But these current IM:2 action figures......every each of them have different armour sculpts and the paint work is quite amazing for such small figures!
