Garage sale @ Kavin's 2nd-3rd June '12...



Earlier in the month, I had the chance to visit a garage sale organised by one of the 'toy-pusher' from my early collecting days. He's no longer active i.e. no longer having an actual brick & mortar store nor selling any collectibles nowadays. It was a 2-day sale and Kavin (yup, that's his name) announced on his FB page that he'd be selling off part of his personal collection as well as heaps of stock aka leftover collectibles from his 'active' days. I went there together with my wife, son and a collector buddy (aka "The Rebel Page" crew), early in the morning to avoid the expected massive crowd.

Hot Toys has revealed the head sculpt for their upcoming Dark Knight Joker 2.0 1/6 Scale Collectible Figure.
Come on HT! I gotta see more.....what else are you throwing in into this set? Interrogation table & chair? What else? Convince us fanboys who ALREADY own the DX-01 that this is going to be worth our money (again)!

From Hot Toys:
Miss me? I'm now unveiling my real face to you finally...

Thanks to the handcraft by chief sculptor & painter Yulli & JC. Hong, my head sculpt looks even more alike to The Joker character! Please stay tuned for more about me soon!

Hot Toys' Heath Ledger Joker 2.0 teaser!

TDK Joker 2.0 - teaser from Hot Toys

This was inevitable right from the start. Everybody anticipated that this was TOO tempting for Hot Toys to give it a miss anyway. For the record, this is the THIRD 'purple-suit' Ledger Joker from HT. The fourth one, if you count the 'Bank Robber' version. Word is, this DX set is gonna come with the interrogation table and chair. I already have the DX-01, but the lure of the 'accessories' may just sway me into getting this one as well. We'll see.

In my opinion, this is just HT at their best at milking the line.....LOL.

Toy sightings: The Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters...

Toy sighting: Movie Masters "The Dark Knight Rises"

Found these popping out at various retail outlets already. Heard that Alfred was a rarer figures among them all.....heck he's rumoured to be even harder to find than Bane himself i.e. at only 1 per case! Not the case (pardon the pun!) here in Malaysia.......Bane is disappearing faster than the rest of the characters. Nobody gives a @#$ about Michael Caine.

Our only grouse? These are a tad bit expensive here in Malaysia....at about USD33 a pop in retail!
