Toynami - Voltron Lion Force

Yeah! Got the Voltron Lion Force from Mike at Lucky Chinatown yesterday. These are the collectors' sets produced in plastic material. I have not much complaints about the product with the price not exceeded to SGD 80 per set. Have played and did the transformation. Pretty fine with it. It's worth buying and more pictures can be viewed in Shaun's blog.

Mezco - 18 Inch Deluxe Hellboy

Thanks to David for keeping the hellboy with "cigar-smoking" version for me.
Have preorder this for quite some time. Just collected yesterday. Mezco had
done a very good job in producing well detailed accessories and weathering
weapons for the 18inch figures. Due to the popular responses, I guess Mezco
may release the "battled-damage" version. Anyway, you may visit Kenmoo's
blog to see more creative pictures here.

Hasbro - Captain Tarpals & Kaadu

Bought this from David at CSC last week. It's worth buying as there is a big dino figure "Kaadu" included in the box set. If you want to see the actual product when Captain Tarpals ride on Kaadu, you may visit HQS at the second floor of CSC.

Hasbro - Obi Wan Kenobi (Old Ver)

I always think the character "Old Obi-Wan Kenobi" does not exist in the Star Wars series. He died at his old age and was just a soul to encourage Luke Skywalker to complete his course of Jedi training. So, did not spend too much on this character. Definitely, the likeness of old Obi-Wan released from Sideshow is much more better. You may see the Sideshow version in Alex's blog.

Bandai - M17 (铁人17)

This is robot 17 (铁人17) which I watched its drama series during my primary school. I think only those people who born in the early 70's may know this robot. Bought it from Uncle Ng at CSC yesterday. I cannot expect the toy still got its "value" even Bandai released it in the year 1999. It can transform from robot mode to vehicle mode and vice-versa using double A batteries. Unfortunately, mine cannot be transformed anymore as the toy was not used for so many years. Two words to say "So Sad".

A380-800 Model by Herpa

Got this from one of my relatives when they were travelling on SQ flight back to Singapore. Its scale is 1 to 500. The model is just half the price as compared to the same models released by Singapore Airlines. The original dimensions for this giant are: Wingspan - 79.75m, Length - 72.73m and Height - 24.07m.

Mamma Mia!

Just watched Mamma Mia! tonight. It is a fun-loving and romantic comedy movie. I feel that Pierce Brosnan (Sam) is not a good singer but Meryl Streep (Donna) and Amanda Seyfried (Sophie) sang so well. Overall, all the female actresses can sing and dance. Recommend for those who love oldies in the 70's. My rating for this movie is 3/5.

DVD - Rambo 2008 (Special Edition)

Have you hear a dialogue “LIVE for NOTHING or DIE for SOMETHING” before? If you have a habit to watch movies at least once in a month, you would probably know it. Yes, this is one of the dialogues from Stallone in his film "Rambo 2008". Impressive! I got the DVD (Code 1) from my colleague who just came back from his holiday trip to California last week. It is a 2-Disc Special Edition released from Lions Gate. The second disc is for us to transfer its file to our iPod, PC or other compatible player so that we can watch the film anywhere, anytime. The reason why I buy Code 1 version from States is because it is banned in Singapore. Also, I don’t like Code 3 version (released from Poh Kim) as some of the scenes were being censored. My DVD collection for “Rambo” Series must be from Lions Gate. Otherwise, it’s a “No” to me.

The Days

“The Days” is the first local film that I am keen to watch. To me, the show is a bit “slow” and it almost caused me to fall asleep. Luckily, there are some parts of the dialogue that made me laugh. The female actress with great potential is Adele Wong (San San). She is the one who helped Justin Chan (Zi Long) to go back to school. In my opinion, she is the best among all the youngsters (except Uncle Durian). I also like Derrick R (Dog) in the film. There is a scene that made me feel very “impressive” is when Derrick is smoking and sitting at a corner and having a chat with Justin Chan, he is super cool at that moment. Justin Chan has potential as well. Ivan Lim (Baby) really needs to improve his acting skill as there is not much expression on his face. I personally think that Anthony Levi Kho (Jeremy Tan) looks like Lam Chi Chung who is one of the actors in “Shaolin Soccer”. Anyway, my rating for this film is 2.5/5, good to watch! You may see detailed articles regarding the film in Kenmoo’s blog.

Bangkok Dangerous

The film is just "ok" to me. Besides action, there is no "romance" kind of feel between Nicholas Cage and Charlie Young. If there are no shows to watch, you may consider this. My rating is 2.5/5 in overall.
