Finally snagged that Star Wars AT-AT!!!!

2010 AT-AT

For those Star Wars fans living in Malaysia who's yet to get yerselves the excellent 2010 AT-AT, you might wanna know that TRU has began selling these behemoths at RM299 (approx USD99). Yeah I know that Target/Walmart have been selling them for 70-80 bucks ever since but since us 'unlucky' collectors don't get to see either stores here in Malaysia, I guess 99 bucks is as lucky as we're ever gonna get. I doubt that Hasbro's gonna mark it further down. RM299 is already 40% off the RRP when it was first launched almost a year ago. What boggles me is that only certain TRU had these special-priced AT-ATs. I noticed that some TRUs even maintained the original RM499 price tags when their sister outlets have marked the toy down to RM299. Inconsistency sucks!

Teaser: Hot Toys' Captain America!

Lookin' good I must say! Am on the fence on this....to pre-order or not? Let's wait for the full preview pictures shall we? I'll be immediately swayed if they gave us the 'modern-looking' head as well in addition to this one.

"Captain America: The First Avenger" tells the story of the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program, turning him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to battle the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving.) The movie opens worldwide on July 22. Can't wait!

Star Wars "Special Action Figure" sets!

Star Wars 'Special Action Figure Set'

Honestly, I thought these would NEVER reach Malaysia. Nevertheless, here they are....on retail shelves too at that! I only want that Death Star trooper so it's kinda illogical for me to buy that "Villain" set (and get yet ANOTHER Vader for my collection) just to get him, though I won't really mind another Stormie! But what I really want is that "Rebel" set. Never had a 21-B droid and a Rebel Trooper before.....and I'm quite hesitant to rip open my single-carded VOTC Hoth Leia. Hmm, let me sleep over these.

Battle-blades 'Voyager Class' Optimus Prime....

Battle-blade Optimus Prime

Yup, I finally succumbed to my evils and snatched the "Battle-blades" Optimus Prime from the Generations line. You see, while everybody was rushing to get the Dark of The Moon (DOTM) toys, I took a u-turn and began hunting for this particular Optimus instead. He is by far THE most accurate Voyager class 'movie' Optimus Prime made to date. The previous voyage Prime (the ROTF version) wasn't faithful to its on-screen appearance and often criticized as having a huge 'kibble' aka backpack behind its back. In fact, the reason I got this Optimus is because I've successfully off-loaded my ROTF voyager Optimus...makes sense huh? 

Truth is, I needed an Optimus to go with the ONLY other Voyager class movie Transformers toys in my collection....Megatron and The Fallen. My Leader Class Optimus Prime was simply too big to go with these two. Honestly, has anybody seen the new DOTM Voyager Class Optimus Prime? *Eeww!* Not only he's a bit smaller in size as compared to the rest of the voyager class figures, he looks a bit off to me.....So there you go, if you're planning to get the DOTM Voyager Optimus, ditch that idea...get this one instead!

Battle-blade Optimus Prime

I'll do a review on the figure if I have the time....*shucks*....
