Hottoys Transformers Optimus Prime Coming

01 August 2014

Hottoys has been doing many things but it never crossed my mind they will do Hasbro Transformers. Even if they did, I would expect they do the movie version. Instead they went for the G1 Optimus prime with a twist....


This Optimus Prime has great detail with realistic weather effect painting on it. He is standing 30cm tall and has over 36 points of articulations.


The twist here is this is Starscream version which mean Optimus Prime has Starscream's parts.


Parts like wings and rifles mountable.


You can mount the rifles to the shoulders as well.


Optimus prime will comes with a pair of palms with movable fingers.


His eyes will glow as it has White light LED that need battery....


The best part Optimus prime can open his chest to revile  reveal LED light up Matrix of Leadership!! The special edition will comes with Starscream's head. You can imagine what happen to him and how Optimus Prime get the accessories...


For display purposes, it comes with rocky ground diorama base with a Autobots' logo


It was said to release in the third quarter of 2015 which is quite a long way. You can expect the pricing to be much higher than some other Hottoys movie lines...

In case you are wondering will this Optimus Prime can transform? The answer so far is No.

What do you think of this Optimus Prime Transformers lover?


[MOC] LEGO CREATOR 6745 – Bi-Plane

31 July 2014

I think MOC (My Own Creation) builders are wonderful people. They never limit their creativity in order to come up with cool-looking models every time.

Today I will review this Bi-Plane MOC model designed by Alan Cheung aka AlanBoar (that is online name he goes by on the MOC LEGO scene). This model uses only bricks parts from the LEGO CREATOR 6745 Propeller Power building toy set (Note: this is a discontinued building toy set).




Personally, I think this Bi-Plane MOC model is awesome. What is very exciting about this MOC model for me is that you can seat a LEGO minifigure inside this Bi-Plane’s open cockpit. The propeller really spins too, with the help of a finger of course. :p



You can see my Captain Jag fighter pilot minifigure from LEGO Star Wars line is ready to rule the skies.

AlanBoar’s MOC Bi-Plane is designed like aircrafts which flew during the early years of aviation. This model has two wings put one on top of the other, supported by external bracing.


There are nice details put into AlanBoar’s MOC Bi-Plane which makes it a very lively design.


AlanBoar’s MOC Bi-Plane features an open cockpit to seat one LEGO minifigure and comes with working elevators on the Bi-Plane’s tail. Unfortunately, there are no rudders designed on the same tail.


You can fold back the wheels of AlanBoar’s Bi-Plane when you convert the model into flight mode.


In summary, I think AlanBoar’s MOC Bi-Plane looks very good and a welcome MOC model unofficially designed for this building toy set. There are many very good MOC models designed by fellow MOC builders out there. Like this AlanBoar’s MOC Bi-Plane model, the sky is the limit when it comes to everyone’s creativity.

Thanks Yeetat for sharing with us again.

26 July 2014

It another year and it is once again ZOIDS Group Build for 2014. This group build are modeller of ZOIDS gathered together in Singapore to have a contest amount themselves.


Without much ado, let's the picture do the talking.

The first entry was a double Zoids.







Second entry I love the matching color tone of Purple and blue...


There are also mini figure with good painting too


Next entry is one of the D-style ZOIDS and I love the details and coloring







There are two entries of the same ZOIDs but different take. One is black matt painted




While another in purple with lot of LEDs to make the ZOIDs look alive!




Like last year, this year there is an entry of the Turtle Tank more to the Desert tone!




There is one action piece with realistic capture!




Another ZOIDS Liger with good weather details!






Now here is the Top 3...
In the Third!








The second is a big entry! ZOIDs base!!










There are so much details and lighting on this huge entries...


Finally the First was an elegant ZOIDs that with a class of it's own.




Personally I love the vegetation that give this entry some realistic feel.


The prizes are presented to the top 3 modeller! Well done guys!


Most of these entries are pure hardwork and each of them took the time to plan and painstaking to improve their skill and be creative in their model kit.

The owner of Let's Play close the shop for this half day event and with Toymaker sponsored some prizes to the winners. 

You may see the last year ZOIDS group build to judge for yourself is there an improvement of this group build.
