LEGO Microfighters 75032 X-Wing Fighter

One of my all time favorite and I bet many are was the X-wing fighter in Starwars. When the Microfighters has a release, I knew I have to get one!

It is not only a vehicle and a mini figure,it comes with an R2! but it is just the head of R2. LOL

It took me just about 20 minutes to put this 97 pieces together and I love the design overall. Really cute.

First thing first, LEGO did design this with consistency of having the X-Wing's wings to have open to X position.

The back view was quite plain but still you can see some engine lighting from the back.

On the side, the scale look really SD. The four missiles on each of the wings would shoot off.

There is a Droid head included to be place at the top of the X-wings.

This Droid suppose to be an assistance pilot if the pilot is down...

Now a review on the X-wing pilot who have a short blaster for self defense.

This LEGO figure provide 2 facial expression which allow the user to switch the expression by turning the head.

The detail on the helmet is well printed too.

Now with this, it is a good company with my LEGO MicroFighter Interceptor. They make a great pair. 

Overall I find this is a good LEGO for Starwars fans with a reasonable price tag. Great for desk display.

Okay that's all for now. Time to take off!

My First experience of Gundam Duel Company

For Gundam fans, you may like to know there's a recent new release of Gundam mobile suit game card and it is called Gundam Duel Company.

This game particularly allow user to direct various Mobile suit and pilots to go for battle. It is a free game on the internet but you can also purchase some mobile suite units and pilots in card form to register and add-on.

I started off the game with a Special order from E.F.F (yes I am a old schooler) that cost SGD$12.50.

What is in the pack you may asked? Here is the list.

If you are wondering what is R3, R2 and R1 in the cards, it mean R for Rare. The higher the number mean higher the rarity.

In this case, the highest in this pack is RX-78 Gundam! If you are lover of cards, you will see the uniqueness of this card is having chrome paint on some of the wording.

The other card Guncanon have some sparkling effect too.  Look really special.

Amuro Ray the well known pilot also have special effect on the card.

In the game there are two type of Mobile suit. Customized are those rare type which in the game allow combination of 3 of the same type to have a more powerful unit. It will have better rate of getting the shot through and evading attacks .

As for Mass production Mobile suit, you can add 27 of the same model in cards to have a more powerful unit.

For starter pack, Bandai offer four choices. Just pick your pick.

Here is a video on the game.
Once you login the game, you can start registered your cards and that unit will be added to your troops. The great thing is that you are also able to unregistered cards if one day you want to pass some of the cards to swap with your friends.

In the game, you get earn more mobile suit and pilots but there are some cards which you can have a booster add on and it comes with 3 cards randomly in a pack that cost SGD$4.80.

Here are the list of cards in this box. You may click to enlarge to read.

In the game, you can set your formation according to your mobile suit and pilots. All you need to go for mission and conquest to earn more ranking so you can get more mobile suit and pilot.

If you are a Gundam fan, this is one game that allow you direct your conquest and collect good looking cards. For cards collectors, this is a plus.

Here's a Guntank card with my Guntank collection. :D Look good?

Give this game a try as it is free to register and even if you do not get a starter pack, there are some mobile suit allocated to let you start off. Of course having starter pack will give you some advantages.

Hot Toys 1:6 Batman: Arkham City coming

For a video game player who played the Batman series on PS3, my favorites would be the middle installment Batman: Arkham City.

As I heard Hot toys will be releasing the  Batman from Arkham City in 1:6 scale, I got excited with these preview photos. Totally capture the Batman in the game.

The suit texture and proportion is as accurate as the game.

No thick armor but just basic protection suit with long pointy Bat ears and thick cape that is useful for battle.

Close up on the look as the character in the game.

Some of Batman's gadgets that if you play the game, you will really appreciate it. These devices only do one thing but it is exactly the function you need in some part of the game. .

The figure offers different facial expression as well.

Here is the accessories and parts of this Batman.

This would certainly be one if not the most popular Batman would ever sell so far from Hottoys.

Save up your money for this as it should release some where in the first part of 2015.

Not too sure will there be others in the series to be release but you never know. It could be. :)
