Hot Toys Hall of Armor with Mark XLII ... ...

This shot took 5 years in the making to compose. When I first experienced Hot Toys in 2009, I had never imagined I will be taking a shot like this.

Anyway, I had wanted to correct the landing pose featured in the earlier post which I felt was a bit off. Iron Man did not land with this left knee on the ground but it was bent but no contact with the ground as seen above.

Dinobot Snarl Reboot in Age of Extinction ... ...

Dinobots from Transformers to me are fantastic additions to the series simply for the fact I love both dinosaurs and robots; what more for transforming dinobots!

The same sob story of how deprived I've been growing up carries on here in this post as I review Snarl from the latest TF movie, Age of Extinction. However, this guy didn't make the cut to be featured in the full length movie.

Can't Get Enough of Mark XLII ... ...

but this time, it's a miniature version from Bandai's S.H.Figuarts.

Oh yeah, this one comes with the couch. Carpet is blogger's own.

Growing up, watching episodes after episodes of Transformers made me wish to own the toys but the G1 toys back then were a luxury item and the articulations were extremely limited. That's why Masterpiece has always intrigued me as I catch up on things I've missed.

Age of Extinction Breakout Set ... ...

It's really been a while since I last bought Transformers toys from the Movies and somehow I went for this set for that G1 nostalgic feel of Prime.

This is the scene where Prime was located by the humans and Lockdown alliance and Prime transformed to protect Cade Yeager and his daughter from Lockdown's attack. There is something amiss in this set and that's Rollbar and Crankcase.

VERY COOL MAGIC CUBE Kitbash Black Female Shooter EASY & SIMPLE PLAY TOY ... ...

I had always wanted a female PMC sniper and along came Magic Cube Toys (MC Toys) with their Black Female Shooter kit. I had attempted to use a Phicen body for this but the nondetachable feet of the Phicen figure left me with little choice to get this Play Toy figure with an Asian head sculpt which I have no idea who she is.
Complete figure with the MK20 Sniper Support Rifle from Easy & Simple

MMS197 DS-02 Mark XLII Part II ... ...

I need to retract an negative comment about Hot Toys Mark XLII which I made in my previous post.

This post will devote solely to feature what I deemed as good enough "Landing Pose"

After all the hype and anticipation, Hot Toys finally shipped out the much anticipated MMS197 Mark XLII from Iron Man 3.

I have been waiting for this since the trailer of Iron Man 3 and since the Suit Test Version. Well, it's in my hands now and ... ...
