Hasbro Bladebuilders "Star Wars: Electronic Riot Baton"

This is the second bladebuilders set I got and my first one is Kylo Ren's electronic lightsaber.

Press the button on the handgrip to activate lights and sounds.

Hold the button on the handgrip and swing your arm to extend its prongs. You can make contact with surface of the baton for flickering lights and sound effects.

You may attach the attack claw to the baton if you want. Overall, it's fun and my son loves it :)

SNK NeoGeo Mini Pro-Gear Spec Advanced Entertainment System 40th Anniversary

To celebrate SNK’s 40th anniversary, the company has released the NeoGeo Mini arcade console which comes with 40 built-in games such as Metal Slug, Samurai Shodown and The King of Fighters series, etc.

Besides the console, I bought two black controllers and a HDMI cable. All accessories are produced by NeoGeo.

My console is the Japan Version which is more colourful than the International Version. Luckily, the console has data storage feature which allows me to save my data.

Inflames Toys 1/6 "Monkey/Joker 至尊寶" in A Chinese Odyssey Part 2: Cinderella Pt.2

Great resemblance of Stephen Chow as Monkey King in the Hong Kong film "A Chinese Odyssey Part 2: Cinderella". The overall paint application of the figure is good.

Monkey King definitely looks cool with his golden circlet from Goddess of Mercy.

The body armor is made of plastic but its texture, paint work and sculpting are what make it looks so real.

The outfit is beautifully replicated and screen accurate. It does not restrict the overall articulation of the figure.

However, the unusual part of the outfit is the rear of the shoes. I don't understand the reason behind it.

Each hair possesses magic power which can be transformed into a clone of the Monkey King himself.

Monkey King's golden-banded staff is made of metal. As the staff is heavy, it restricts certain nice poses we can get from the figure.

Tried my best to pose Monkey King wielding his golden-banded staff and the outcome was great.

More dynamic poses can be achieved if Inflames can give us an extra plastic staff.

Take a closer look at the head sculpt with angry expression. It's nice, right?

As the figure has fairly tight joints, it can stand without using a display base.

Chinese characters were engraved on the Pandora's Box. Unfortunately, the box cannot be opened. You may click here to see the packaging.
