G.I.Joe: Retaliation Toys is here

29 May 2012

The G.I.Joe Retaliation toys are out in Singapore retail such as ToysRus and the series are rather interesting.


Everyone was looking out the second installment of G.I.Joe movies which by the way having the ROCK as the main lead together with Bruce Willis another seasoned action stars. That should be a success formula. Originally set to be 29 June 2012 release now got delayed to March 2013! That's a whole 9 months but the toys hit our shore a couple of weeks ago!

Since the toys are in the market, I wonder without the movie for these 9 months, will the toys still be selling well? Anyway here is the sharing of what the new G.I.Joe have to offer.
There are pretty much range of these line. First off, let me go with the figures. The basic 3.75 inches figures.

Starting with team G.I.Joe, Snake eyes and Roadblock and like the previous G.I.Joe, they were given much accessories.


A close up of Roadblock in that figure and the likeness was not really there.


Next is one of the hot figure if you asked me. The Cobra Commander and I just love his new Snakelike Helmet. Please keep the helmet on in the movie as that is how Cobra commander suppose to be.


Next team Venom Ninjas like Storm Shadow and Zartan with lot of faces and head given to change his looks.


For army building, the Cobra Troopers! They have the classic fun parachute features. Brilliant!


There are also a box set for the 3 ninjas in G.I.Joe series.


If you want bigger display figures, there are Snake Eyes and Roadblock round 12 inches sizes. They come with electronic voice player as well from the lines from the movie.
 

How can G.I.Joe comes not with vehicles? From Venom, the H.I.S.S Tank!


On the water, there is Cobra Fangboat!


For Snake eyes we have to a Ninja Commando 4x4 


If you like to role player, there are G.I.Joe masked such as Snake eye and Storm Shadow


There is Nerf foam sword just for Snake eye.


There offer the whole Snake eye set too. Look fun for kids!



Nerf offers more arms for kids to get into the action beginning with short range


and also longer range arms like Ninja Commmando Blaster


Overall Hasbro done a good job to provide various range of toys for this delayed movie.
Well I guess we all have to wait for March 2013 to catch this movie.

I am pretty sure the Rock is doing the following expression when he hear about the movie will be delay for another 9 months.


Disclaimer: The above image is not a variant in the line as it is fictional. It would be good to have this tho. 

Do you agree? LOL

McDonald's Grimace Hello Kitty

27 May 2012

It's the second week of McDonald's Hello Kitty and it is time to get the Grimace Hello Kitty.


Originally in the whole series, Grimace was one of the least Hello Kitty I would go for but after I opened up the toy, it is one of the best of Hello Kitty in the McDonald's series so far.

Now why was she the least in my opinion? Firstly it has to be the character of Grimace. A purple fat creature which I have no idea what he feed on to get that fat...Oh wait maybe too much fast food. But can you imagine Hello Kitty being FAT? 


Since I have to collect the whole series, I went for it. There is nothing special about the design for Grimace which is just plain purple. So Hello Kitty had to wear the plain purple suit and they gave her a hoodie. From the back of Grimace Kitty, she is just plain purple.


On top of the hood, was the face of Grimace smiling away. I don't think many even notice it the face as the whole white Hello Kitty face stood out of the plain purple.


Now what changed my mind was you can actually remove the hood and show the full face of Hello Kitty. That was the turning point why I find this Grimace Hello Kitty fun. When you remove it, you thought is just Hello Kitty wearing a purple hoodie suit. No one will know it is Grimace. 


So long no one see the Grimace's face at the back. 


Since I can remove the hood, I went further to play with the hood and come out with this like a sleeping bag for Hello Kitty. This is not the official way but it sure look cute! LOL


Since I can put on the hood, I pull the hood all the way up and cover the ribbon and now the face of Grimace is so prominent. LOL


You can still restore the look of Hello kitty by showing the ribbon which I thought somehow the ribbon spoil the looks. 


See how many looks you can produce for this Hello Kitty? That is why I find it is the most fun Hello Kitty in the series where the kids can play around the looks and be creative. 


So that is all for McDonald's Grimace Hello Kitty review. If you have yet to get this design, do it as it is fan removing the hood and put the hood back. LOL

Do you like the removing feature of this Hello Kitty?

Transformers Bot Shots Optimus Prime Launcher

26 May 2012

When you see Optimus Prime and a trailer, a true Transformers fan will be tempted to get it. So how can I resist this set when I saw it on retail?


On the packaging, it stated clearly that the trailer is a Launcher that will launch Optimus Prime in vehicle mode to speed. If that is not enough for you, the battle is done by crashing each other in vehicle mode. Now how cool is that?!


At the back of the packaging are the status of this Optimus Prime which in Hand to Hand melee 920 points, Blaster or Gun mode 450 points and Saber mode 280. Not to mention Optimus Prime hauls his trailer into battle.


Now it is a norm that most toys were produced in China but for these series, it is made in Vietnam. Surprise? Well I am. Not that I am complaining as the quality of these series is quite good.


Time to Open the Toy and first off let's check out Optimus Prime in bot mode.

This Optimus Prime is mainly in G1 design for head and some part of the body. 


The standard Red and blue color stand out for Optimus Prime and with a large base, Optimus Prime can balance well as a bot mode.


On the flip side from his back, you basically see the whole vehicle mode.


Now there is a filp-able chest piece that consist of the 3 different status of Optimus Prime power for the game.


Optimus Prime cuteness is to max in vehicle mode. You can see it has became a SD Truck.The triggering point for the transformation is the front bummer.



Just press that front bummer, the whole vehicle will change to robot mode instantly. Personally, I love the Autobots logo that is on it.



As a truck, this Optimus Prime had already carry a mini trailer.


Here is how Optimus Prime looks with it back fliping in vehicle mode.


But that will be in pale comparing to the ultimate trailer for Optimus Prime. The big red logo of the Autobots so proudly wear that on!


To engage Optimus Prime with the trailer, all you got to do is to match nicely.


Once it had link up with the trailer, the full glory of Optimus Prime is up!!


Here is how the bottom of this mode look like. All in all, in this mode, there are only 6 moveable wheels while they had total of 10 wheels.


Now on the Trailer itself, we know that it is a launcher. To open up the trailer there are two ways. One is to press the canon looking point on top. The whole trailer will just spring open.


Another way is to press the bummer at the back of the trailer.


The trailer will opened up and you can see two blaster canons that allow you to pull it out 


Now all cannons are equipped.


To set the launcher, you just need to pull the stand back and if it further enough, it will locked into position for you to load Optimus Prime.


With that, you are ready to Roll out into battle!


With the click on the button, off it goes!


Finally here is a short view of Optimus Prime Launcher in action!


Well I will certainly get some more Bot Shots as my son love this series already as he is now playing with it.

Do this review make you fall in love with this series too?
