My Top 10 Toys of 2009
I promised Shaun to do a Top 10 list of Favorite Toys in 2009 and so here are MY Top 10 toys of 2009 which I had opened and reviewed this year.
10. Doraemon Time Machine Mcdonald Happy Meal
I have been eating fast food for Doraemon series and among the whole series of Mcdonald Doreamon Happy meal toys, Doraemon in time machine has my best love as it resemble the signature pose for various Doraemon comic book cover.
9. Nerf N-Strike Maverick
I had some hesitation to get a Nerf gun but I finally got it. Although I didn't joined any official game, the design and the fun of shooting dart is enough for me. I had a good time playing with it and even did some modification of it. My dogs don't seems to bother by the flying darts from time to time. LOL
8. Dragonball Scouter Stationary
In my Hongkong trip I was looking out for scouter and the only thing that come close was this Scouter Stationary. I know it is not really a toy but I really like it. Maybe I can take the lens out someday to customized or to build my own scouter. You just never know...That's geeky. LOL
7. Mario Kart Wii Gashapon Magnet
The moment I laid my eyes on this set of Gashapons, I knew I have to get it. One of the catalysis was that I just started playing the Mario Kart during that period. To top it off, the toys capture the cuteness and the signature looks of my Mario memories.
6. Gundam BB Zhaoyun Gundam
I have always love the character in the Three Kingdom story. Holding a spear and riding a white horse to bash through thick enemy line just to save his Lord's son. Such loyalty. Since this toy was assembled by me, I have to have some love for him. I am pretty pleased with what I have done in painting thanks to the gundam markers.
5. Domo kun Qee Collection
I totally missed Domo Kun out during my visit to the STGCC 2009 and I swear if I seen it again, I will get it. For his short stature, he still stood out in the mist of my collection. I have a feeling he is just the beginning of my Domo-kun collection...
4. Swoop Transformers Animated
Among most of my Transformers Animated Toys, I often pick up Swoop to play with it. I just love the way the bird-like feature and it's flexibility. I often keep him in his "chicken" mode when I played with it. :)
3. Ice Bat from Uglydoll
Ice Bat deserved the bronze position in this ranking. The more I look at him, the more I love him. The moment I off my room light, he would stood out to say goodnight to me with his glow (since he has the glow in the dark feature). Plus that silly expression on his face just make me smile as I turned in. Not many toys can put a smile on my face you know.
2. The Joker with Crime Scene Evidence from Mattel
Talking about putting smile on one face, how can I leave the Joker out since he appear quite a few time in my posts? The figure capture the character of the Joker delivered by Heath Ledger for a 5 inch figure. For that he deserved the Silver award. He was the first toy I bought in 2009 (New year day) at a very good price. What a way to start the year.
1. Yotsuba & Revoltech DX Summer vocation set
I guess it was no surprise that Yotsuba get the Gold position. She was a good model with her brilliant smile and I still feel bad that I lost one of her original part during the photo shoot outing. Regardless of her lost, her smiling face still brighten everything whenever she appear in the photo.
So that concluded my Top 10 Favorite Toys. They are all Opened and I had a fun time with them. That's what toys are for... to open and play. :)
