Star Wars Midnight Sale @ Toyworkers Subang

Who's the Darth Vader?
I told you its a great sale, didn't I?
Welcome to Star Wars!

Check out the crowd!

Serious the bloody Millenium Falcon is damn nice, but I promised not to buy anymore.... :(
Jason tried to do the same, but he bought it later on....

It was a huge crowd with 70-80% of the products sold out within 1 hour. Quite a number of hardcore Star Wars fans came. 1 collector bought 1 each, walao... I only buy one though. Met quite a number of friends and collectors there, quite happy actually. Its more like a gathering than sales! May the force be with u...

SDCC Star Wars Disturbance In the Force Comic Con Review

New range from Star Wars. Since I got to play a bit of this new thing, I decided to record it into video. Pretty much lights and conversations. Check video for sample dialog.

TF Animated Ratchet Review

Check out the weapons!
4 weapons to be precise!
2 hand weapons!
Getting this Animated craze is not my whole idea. My first hand on Ratchet like the other Animated as its quite identical to G1. There are 4 weapons. Things I noticed, since I transform this without manual. When pushing the head in, transforming to van mode, becareful. I stuck the head into and can't take it out. I sense that I stuck it wrongly or the infamous spring problem. Since I reviewed this at the toy shop, I didn't rectify this head problem as I didn't have my screwdriver set with me. Just becareful on this. Other than that, there's nothing much to worry about. Paintjob is so so depending your luck I guess. Like I said, its a decent piece with the price you paying for.

TF MasterForce Overlord Review

The long awaited review... D-307 Masterforce Powermaster Overlord

Base Mode

The 2 Powermasters....

I thought this review is just a plain normal Transformers review but I was wrong. During the transformations, mishap has happened. I broke 2 clips, which really pissed me off. One clip off the ramp and another inner clip of the jet broke as well. Both can be fixed thru extra duty super glue. As much as I love to play this, I forgot this monster is 20 years old vintage toy.

The transformation is quite straight forward but remember to put on powermaster during some tranformation or else like me clip will get broken.

The smaller parts are the ones easier to lose. As I started this piece from scratch, I managed to salvage most of the parts from ebay, still left a few though. I'm glad what I have right now and happy to say its a decent piece.

TF Animated Jazz Review

Remember G1 Jazz? Quite resemblance?Jazz with his nunchakus!

Much has been said about this Animated series toys. The transformation is pretty okay. Not that simple and not that tough. The paint job is decent, quite a bit of articulation compare to G1 or G2 of course. With the price you paying for a deluxe, do not expect any great near perfect toy u going to get especially everything is made in China nowadays. In fact I'm pretty happy to review this Jazz as its quite identical to G1 Jazz and its cute features. The 2 nunchakus weapons are quite cool as well. I guess my money is now starting with Animated series....

Transformers G1 Encore Tomy Takara Omega Supreme!

My favourite Transformers G1 toy.. no other than Omega Supreme
The color art for the box is too yellowish to my liking...

The new head....
The old head...
Can you differentiate which is new and old?
Omega Supreme Robot Mode!

Amazingly the new Tomy Takara's version is not disappoint as I thought. I have the old ToyBox version so I have something to compare with. I heard about defects on this so I pulled this out and see it for myself. So nothing much to complain and I should say it could match the vintage Toybox edition. I am really surprised indeed. With the price such low, this is a must grab product. As I say, my fav G1 toy.

TF Animated Series Collections

I'm still around if many people is wandering. Taking a short break at the moment. Selling off most of my Energon and Armada series. I'm kinda attracted by this Animated series. Going to start slow this time around. :P
