Hot Toys Kylo Ren ... ...

I like to start by saying this is not mine. This is my son's first Hot Toys figure. My son has a strange (at least to me) liking for Kylo Ren. He is not a Sith but one of the Knights from the Knights of Ren. Trained under Luke Skywalker before he went all obsessed with idolizing Darth Vader.

There are many reasons I do not like Kylo Ren and it starts from his attire to his helmet to his face. Ok, I know there are among us many fans of Kylo and I shall not badmouth him anymore. Maybe there is 2 redeeming factors about Kylo and those are his powerful strength in the force and his lightsaber.

Mastermind Creations Nero Rex R20N Moritorus Enforcer ... ...

Another one of my childhood fantasy is to own the Predaking from the Transformers ever since I watched it on TV in 1986. 30 years later, I have the Predaking, sort of ...

This is Nero Rex the Moritorus Enforcer by Mastermind Creations which is a 3rd party interpretation of the Predaking. There are 2 other 3rd Party versions of Predaking but I find this most appealing. The main reason is the color scheme and a true fan will tell you this is not the original color.
Mastermind Creations did the original color scheme of Predaking which they named as Feral Rex and it is formed by the Feralcons (instead of Predacons) Leo Dux, Talon, Tigris, Bovis and Fortis. I had noticed this in 2014 but it was released one at a time and with priorities on other purchases, I had given these original color a miss.

Transformers Legends Ultra Magnus, Arcee and Windblade ... ...

These 3 were bought in 2015 but my schedule did not allow me to open them earlier and well, they weren't my top priority due to my many collectibles pursuits.

These are from Takara Tomy and under the Legends line celebrating 30 years of Transformers.

The packaging is actually good enough for the items to be clearly displayed and for someone who is as busy, leaving them in this state and just seeing the items through the window is somewhat therapeutic.

Transform Back on Tracks with Masterpiece 25 ... ...

It's been a while after my last Masterpiece 24, Star Saber. This was actually purchased for a while but I really am so tied down with work, I had shelved it for months.

Tracks is a G1 classic Transformer and its alterego is a GM Corvette Stingray.

I have gone ahead with my first order with the set which comes with the regular Stormtrooper and Heavy Gunner Stormtrooper.

The Party Goes On with Hot Toys Mark XXV; Striker ... ...

The 'House Party' Protocol fever is still going on strong and with Hot Toys, things aren't cooling down any further. Not even if the Singapore government implements any cooling measures on this.

Today, we take a look at Mark XXV, codename Striker. In it's brief moment of feature in Iron Man 3, Striker used its only weapon, the jackhammer on his arms.
