Starwars Black Series 6" Boba Fett

01 November 2014

When Hasbro release the 6" Black series I was excited and I tell myself to get some of the figures that I wanted as they are bigger and look better in display with more detail to look upon. Imagine I saw the 6" Boba Fett at the retail being the last one there, I grab it without thinking.


I have to confess that this is my first experience with the Hasbro Starwars 6" series and I would be honest to see if this is up to my expectation.

The accessories of Boba Fett is simple. They give him a blaster and a rifle and they remove the Jet pack as a stand alone. Although I feel the jet pack should always be with Boba as it is part of his iconic costume.


Out of box Boba Fett look good for 6". With a bigger scale, you get to see more details.


The Jetpack is attachable on his back by just a hole to plug in. It hold well in that possible so it is a good design. Boba look complete with Jet pack.


For the details you get to see the mandalorian insigma on his shoulder. The color of the green to me look quite bright. If it is duller or darker will look better.


Hasbro gave quite a good weathering for this Bobafett such as his right top part of the helmet and various location of dents... One of it was a dent on his helmet which could have saved his life.


Looking at the details of the dent is interesting that there are event some dent on his cup.... that may also saved his "life" too. LOL


Enough of the joke above, I would like you to remember the two front pouches on both side of the leg near the waist area.


Because of those two pouches, it prevent both leg (upper thigh) to move forward. That is one disappointment in articulation...

Just as you think it won't get any worst, the ankles have limited movement too. Not too sure it is across all Bobafett figures or it is just the one that I got.... Just look at the photo below and you will notice the left ankle didn't move so much as the right does....


The only consolation is that with the leg articulation in pose, I still can get him to do the Oppa Gangnam style. :D


Now about the blaster for his accessories, this is done good as it can place in his holster well on his side. See how smooth you can pose him drawing the blaster.


With that you can do some stylish pose. Boba is so cool. Can you feel the wind and moving in slow motion?


Regarding the blaster rifle is another story. I would think he look great with it until I put on it and trying to pose with it.


The only good pose view was in this way for both hands holding it.


But if you look closer at the top angle, you would notice something is quite off at the butt of the rifle...


At this position, the butt of the rifle was totally bend!


And if you try to point the rifle forward, you can only do with one hand as the other can never reached the rifle to secure it...


Even though with all these imperfection, these articulations issue would have also appear on the 3.75 inches scale figures. Here is the scale difference between 6" with 3.75". See the difference since you can see it has more details.


Along side with other 6", the scale look harmonious with other 6" figures of other manufactures. Here's Batman and Boba admiring each other as both are into gadgets and good at it.


In conclusion, in view of details and display it is way better than the 3.75 inches ones. However the articulation and the limited way to get the figure to hold their arms is a let down....

Nonetheless, I am still happy to have this 6" Bobafett in my collection now. I would be getting more selective 6" from this series just to display.

There will be more 6" Starwars toys to come from other manufactures beside Hasbro but so far I seen Hasbro having better looking figure than other Japanese toy maker who obtain the license... Only time will tell.

Do you like this Bobafett in 6"?




BANDAI HGBF 1/144 Beargguy F Coming

29 October 2014

In recent Gunpla screen, there is a cute Gunpla who took the ladies and guys by storm. And it is not a Gundam but a Gunpla named BearGuy! The second version was a big hit and just when you think it was the best and most cutest it can be, Bandai releasing another HG BearGuy with a little BearGuy!

Meet the BearGuy F which F stand for Family.


I am not quite certain if BearGuy was the mother or father role...or even brother role....

Unlike the previous version, these Family version do not have weapons accessories.


The only feature was the big BearGuy to carry the small BearGuy on his back.


Do note both can hold each other hands and the Big BearGuy has the mouth open features.


If you have not gotten any BearGuy, this set would be the best to have.

These set is going to release in November 2014 at 1,944 Yen

25 October 2014

I always wanted Singapore to have a good game show with some of the branded console officially just like T3 in Amercia and my wait was over as this year Singapore is having Game Start 2014.


The opening ceremony was attended by Deput President of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia, Hiroyuki Oda.


Sony and Singapore Nanyang Polytechnic is working of grooming local talent to be game developer and there is a signing of the agreement at the opening of the event.


It follow by gift presentation to each other.


Here is the official Sony Playstation area and it is fabulous in Singapore standard!


There was display of limited PS4 such as this Dragon Quest version with chrome silver...


There are other color theme releasing in the days to come for PS4 and PSVITA.


The event allow anyone to have a chance to try out some of the latest game and console.


In such grand event there will be good looking show girls too.


For Sony there are various PS4 at the event for everyone to try out the latest game and admire the graphic and gameplay.


For the two days, these are the line up events that Sony will be giving out some prices for the activities.


One of the main booth is for race car drivers to try out the latest Driveclub.


In that booth, there are challenges open to anyone to participate during the event and win some prices.You need to register tho...


There is a special area that have M18 rating games and they do not allow any photography even for the media as it is the area of preview games such as Bloodborne, Far Cry 4, The Evil Within and much more. Don't worry, it is not scary and no, there isn't any nudity...or at least not that I remember. LOL


Bandai Namco also having their own preview area which you have to queue man it is long queue...


You get to try God Eater 2, Gundam Breaker 2, Godzilla, Dragonball Xenoverse and DeadIsland 2.


There are also good looking game girls to assist you on some game inquiries not that you need one if you are gamers but you know...


One important thing was PS4 is having good discount prices at that event and if you trade in a old console you get $100 off if you are getting a PS4. No explanation needed on why there are so long queue...


There is also a Capcom Pro Tour Asia for Street Fighter where all the pro in that game came to challenge each other.


There are also 2 Xbox console set up for challenging each other in that event if you want to try how good you are.



On the topic of Xbox One, there are quite a number of xbox one booth with various games like this Final Fantasy



And also some console with other games for you to try on XBOX ONE.



There was one booth called Versxs City that is like a time machine...


Why I said time machine, it has many working console for you to play for free!!! Some of it I totally forgotten it actually existed!! All working!!!



Here's one SNES which I owned once and the same game that I played in my younger days! Dragonball somemore!!



If you think there's all, you are wrong. There are some retro games some of it in mint condition on sales!


Gamestart is cosplay friendly and The Neo Tokyo Project was there to help out.


I would end the review here as there are just too many to talk about but it is best you as a gamer to experience it yourself. It is a game show which mean you have to go there and play the games to see how good or not it is.

The ticket is at SGD$8 and I have to say for the price is really worth it as this is the closest gaming event to T3 and if you are a Singapore gamer, please support this event so that the organizer would be able to bring in bigger and better game show.

Last of all, here is  Alyse the mascot of GameStart 2014.


And here are what is there in the event hall.


Do note to give yourself about at least 2 to 3 hours for you to queue and try out the various games at the event.

Tell us what you like or don't like about Game Start 2014.
