Hot Toys Dawn of Justice Armored Batman ... ...

Ben Affleck as Batman isn't something I was quite prepared for and I was ready to just let the whole Hot Toys franchise on Dawn of Justice to go pass me until I saw Armored Batman. I kinda hear Hot Toys asking my wallet 'Do you bleed?'

I guess it's that pairs of LED lit eyes that had me sold.

King Arts Iron Man House Party Protocol's Mark XXII Hot Rod ... ...

Iron Man 3 has unleashed a frenzy release of all the 42 armors of Iron Man. However, Hot Toys's price has been going up north and I believe Mark XXII is an exclusive event item. Thank goodness, there is King Arts.

Everything is fine with this fella except for 2 issues, 1, the right shoulder of my piece seems off with the pegs sticking out too much and 2, King Arts got the forearm weapons wrong.

3rd Party Scorponok by Iron Factory (Lord Scorpion) ... ...

My first contact with Iron Factory, a 3rd Party Transformers maker. Reason why I got this is it reminds me of the G1 Headmaster Scorponok which I sold away years ago.

However, this in terms of size is pale in comparison to the original G1 toy which towers at around 13".

Hot Toys Mark XLV Age of Ultron ... ...

Frankly speaking, I am growing tired of collecting all the suits Hot Toys or Marvel Iron Man has to offer. They are generally the same but somehow different. This is Mark XLV from Age of Ultron.

The escalating pricing of the Hot Toys product is also any deterring factor for my Iron Man suits fatigue.

Hot Toys Captain Phasma ... ...

When I first saw the character in the trailer, it didn't occur to me that this Captain is a she. However, her screen play was limited and she didn't quite impress in anyway except for her shiny chrome armor.

She is so shiny that my reflection is in every picture. This figure could have easily been mistaken for a diecast one. Hot Toys did a fantastic job with the chrome paint and now it will stand the test of time.

No one cared who I was until I put on the mask ... ...

The Dark Knight Rises Bane is one villain that caught my attention and Chris Nolan's version did it for me, however, the price tag offered by Hot Toys didn't.

What we have here is a custom-made version of Bane. Thanks to Alex of Toyhaven for pointing to the right direction to 'The Little Box' ( at International Plaza.

Takashimaya 20th Craziest Toy Sale Part 6 (Kamen Rider Drive Type Dead Heat) ... ...

On National Day, 9 August 2016, I again dropped by Takashimaya to see what cheap bargain can I get on the last day of the Craziest Toy Sale. I must say it has been quite a harvest for me to pick up 4 toys and adding on, my son's 7 Gundam model kits.

On the last day of the sale, I was pleasantly surprised that they added Type Dead Heat of Kamen Rider Drive.

It happened to be in the same color scheme with our state flag and this being National Day, I'm employing Type Dead Heat to be the flag bearer for Singapore's 51st Birthday.
