My son's a geek in his own right too!

My son's Toy Story collection....

What can I say? He has his own 'kingdom' in his toy containers. And when he took out his Toy Story characters....my wife and I realised he has quite a bit already! Time to hunt down a Mr and Mrs Potatohead that fits the scale. The ones he has now is way too big for the figures pictured above.

Can't believe a 3-year old is using words such as 'toy haul' and 'scale'......LOL. That's our son - the geek!

New 'Wheels' in da house!

I've recently acquired two new Hot Wheels vehicle over the past couple of days. It was quite a hunt to say the least....I had to ransack through a couple retailer' shelves before I finally found the white Ferrari (left) nicely hidden somewhere at the lower pegs (though my wife instantly spotted the red Camaro (right) upon glancing through the HW aisle...God bless her!). Right, let me just reiterate again that traditionally I am NOT a Hot Wheels collector by nature, but the 'geeky' significance of these two vehicles made me wanna have 'em for my feeble HW collection. What's so special about these two you may ask? Read on......

Milking the Star Wars line...a little bit TOO far!

Rip-off by Hasbro! That Han Solo figure is over 12 years old!!!

Rip-off by Hasbro! That Han Solo figure is over 12 years old!!!

Here's one of the latest (Jan 2012) Star Wars Battle Pack i.e. Rebel Heroes figure set. That Han Solo is a 'slight' repaint of the 1999 Cantina Comm Tech figure! Talk about milking the line....minor repaint of a 13-year old figure is just an insult to us collector!!! Should have included the 2011 VOTC Yavin Ceremony Han Solo instead.....

Random action-figure shots from The Rebel!

Captain America (WWII)

"Curse you He-Man......errr, I mean...Captain America!!!"

Man, have I been bogged down by work or what?! I've got a number of 'un-reviewed' (not photographed or blabbed about) action figures and (man-ly) toys just sitting idly in my storage area. For those of you who's been regular visitors to my flickr page, you've probably seen these before, but anyway I thought of posting them here again for the benefit of those who haven't...at least this'll quench the thirst of you who were wondering just when the heck are the reviews and rants on this feeble blog are gonna appear again. Truth is, like I've mentioned before, I still haven't got around to really look into those acquisitions of mine....been a bit busy (and lazy) lately...hahah. In the meantime, here are some shots of my recently acquired 3.75" Marvel Universe figures (trust me, there's more but I haven't tinkered with those yet!).
