WWE "Christian" Mattel PPV10 Extreme Rules

This is the first WWE "Christian" figure I scored for my collection. Christian’s real name is William Jason Reso and he is a Canadian. To me, Christian is not a tough wrestler but he plays his role very well as a villain. Anyway, I still prefer to see Christian partner with Edge as tag team wrestlers in early 2000.

WWE "Wade Barrett" Mattel Assortment Series 15

Love this figure as Wade has a more "arrogant" look comparing to the earlier version here.

WWE "John Cena" Mattel Battle Pack Series 13

I believe this one needs no introduction to WWE collectors. Yes, this is John Cena figure with his smiling expression I scored last week. Just look at the head sculpt produced by Mattel this time round..Amazing!!

Cybertron Con on 11 Mar 2012

I guess some Transformers fans had queued up overnight for the exclusive.

This was the stage for the opening ceremony. Right above is the Cybertron Con Exclusive the fans were aiming for..

Here was the opening ceremony by the top management of Hasbro and Universal Studios..

Left above is our familiar Prime mascot walking around to take pictures with fans. Right above is our tour guide who brought us into the convention hall.

The artwork of the panels was fantastic with window display of Transformers figures.

Besides, fairly new Transformers video games were introduced to the fans. Right above is the booth for Fastest Fingers First 2012 Competition..

The main attractions to me are the 22 foot tall Optimus Prime and the Transformers-Reimagined section :)

These are some customised model kits designed by local and overseas talents.

My buddy "Wayne" was queuing up for Mr Hideaki Yoke's autograph :P

Some of us had an interview session with Takara Tomy team after the pre-opening tour..You may click here to see more pictures.

Hasbro Leader Class "Starscream" HFTD Ver. Part 2

This is the repaint version of leader class Starscream in "Revenge of the Fallen" series. Great sculpting of the head with lots of fine details in the chest of the figure.

Similar to other leader class characters, Starscream has electronic speech and light-up eyes and chest :P

Though the figure looks a little clumsy, it can stand steadily with its chicken legs :)

The weapons can be attached to the back of the figure.

Starscream has pop-out missiles in its left forearm. Additional missiles can be added on by folding back the left claws.

Similar to left forearm, Starscream has a gatling gun hidden in the right forearm.

Overall, I love the figure as it's huge and looks very movie accurate. The articulation of the figure is very good as well. It's definitely one of the best Decepticon figures in my Transformers collection. You may click here to see the box packaging and view the transformation via Optibotimus video here.
