This could be my first model kit from Bandai. I personally prefer the overall look and design of Great Mazinger than Mazinger Z.

This is an extra piece of Barney Ross figure I got from an ebay seller. It was a loose figure came with tactical boots and head. No hands were given.
My reason to get this figure is the tattoos printed on the upper torso. The tattoos look natural and realistic.
Unfortunately, the skin color of the head doesn't match with the neck and upper torso. I guess the difference is due to the material used for the rubber body.
A closer look at the tattoos printed on the arms and back of the body. Amazing piece of work by Hot Toys!!
As a leader of the elite mercenaries, Ross has to maintain his fitness by daily workouts in the gym.
I personally think this is the best head sculpt to resemble Sylvester Stallone as Barney Ross in The Expendables (2010 film).
The plastic adjustable sit-up bench and pair of dumbbells are not from Hot Toys. For the dumbbells, the bars are made of metal and weight plates are made of plastic.
For the pair of jeans, belt and hands, they are originally from my Barney Ross figure.
It's obvious that the elbow joints only allow for 90 degree bend which restrict posing for upper body.
The plastic boots also restrict the articulation of the feet. Overall, the figure has tight joints and it can stand on its own.
Look at the facial sculpture, Hot Toys has captured the likeness of aged Stallone with realistic skin texture, wrinkles, eyebrows and droopy eyes.
As a huge fan of Sylvester Stallone, I wish Hot Toys can consider to get the licence and release the 1/6 scale John Rambo in Rambo II and Rocky in the first film.

I have cleaned some sections and rearranged some display of my 1/6 scale figures. Due to the expansion of my Transformers collection, I remove my commercial aircraft models and replace the top left section by Transformers movie series.
Star Wars top section: Will be adding the remaining Star Wars collection as they are currently in sealed boxes.
Star Wars bottom section: The display should be fixed for the time being.
DC section: Looking forward to my Hot Toys Justice League Batman to be showcased here.
Marvel section: Plan to unbox four characters from Marvel movie series.
Marvel Iron Man section: Ant-Man and Scarlet Witch will be moving out to other section.
Dragon HKPF section: Have rearranged the entire section and added some diorama accessories here.
Other movie related section: Will arrange the position of these figures again.
Limited room for toys is very common for toy collectors like myself. Due to daily family commitments and work schedules, it's very difficult to find "ME" time to play my toys. So, most of the toys are being stacked up. Even if I have spare time, I prefer to get some rest or spend time on the Internet. As of result, my toy room becomes STORE room. In this room, 80% of the items are mine and 20% belongs to my wife and sons. On the other hand, blogging has become my habit. No matter how busy or lazy I am, I try to upload a minimum of 4 posts in a month to keep my passion alive. My biggest dream is to post pictures and reviews of every single toy I have on this blog. I know it's impossible for my dream to come true but I will do my best. You may see the initial set up for my toys shelves here and here.
