Masterpiece Star Saber MP-24 ... ...

I once I said Rodimus Prime is the last Masterpiece I will ever get since Takara Tomy decided to produce this once pristine line with cheap ABS. However, taken the fact that I've been sold by the so many old school MPs that came along the way, I have to eat my words.

The fact is also that Rodimus could just be a one-off flop by Takara Tomy. However, Star Saber isn't all perfect too.

Happy Father's Day ... ...

 To all the cool collector dads out there, Happy Father's Day!!

Pleasantly surprised by my son this morning with a card from him and this year, it came with something I normally buy for him.

I'm touched and blessed to have my son who understands me. No wonder he kept asking me if I've ordered Hot Toys's Ultron and Iron Legion.

Medicom MAFEX The Dark Knight and Batpod ... ...

I think I qualify to be a true blue Dark Knight fan given that this being my (lost count) Batman figure from the Chris Nolan's rendition of Batman (Christian Bale) and my 4th Batpod.

I knew I wanted this set the moment I saw it out for pre-order.

King Arts Display Stand ... ...

Watch out Hot Toys, a new contender has arrived and they too want a piece of the Iron Man pie. I have ordered the 1/9th scale Mark XLII and to complement it, the display stand.

The display stand arrived first without Mark XLII and so I used it on a 1/6th scale Falcon earlier and it worked just fine.

Hot Toys - Falcon from The Winter Soldier ... ...

Falcon, from the movie Captain America - The Winter Soldier wasn't my top choice of must get but I eventually did get it. This is indeed amazing!

Neither Beast Kingdom nor Lego ... ...

The bootleg markets are really giving legit toy companies a run for their money with the number of unlicensed products they are putting into the market.

Bought these in Taipei and you can find plenty of these around; word of advice, look around, compare prices before you part with your money. They just get cheaper.

Not Toys but Terracotta ... ...

During the trip in China, I was at the famous Terracotta Army Museum in Xi'an Shaanxi. I bought the 12" Terra Cotta 2 warriors and a horse. I have always been intrigued by the magnificent archaeological find and seeing the actual site is really breathtaking.

Danboard from Abroad ... ...

Another reason for the long absent is due to traveling and in my travels, toys has to be part of the trip.

Back from Hiatus (Wish for an Odyssey) ... ...

Time flies and can't imagine that it has been about 3 months since the last entry.

I had been rather busy at work and also been occupied with another commitment in my life. Back in 2007, I had a Wish.

Years on, I on an Odyssey. It's not the case of a 7 years itch but it's really high time since my COE is almost up.
