Hot Toys 1/6 Star Wars Darth Vader Coming

Starwars fan, you need more money as Hot toys would be releasing Starwars Episode IV, 1/6 Darth Vader!

That right, another Vader and of course he come with a lightsaber. 

The bonus is it comes with his signature breathing sound. Yes electronic parts and careful if you want to keep him MISB.

He was given some hands to interchange as you like for some signature pose. No cutting of arms tho....

So far the release did not show the mask off as that is Episode VI and not IV. Who knows there maybe Episode V or VI vader coming.

Here the list of items that come with this Vader.

The projected release date would be around Q2 or Q3 of 2015 and price is not fixed yet.

Do you want this Darth Vader?

For a G1 and a bug lover, this piece is truly something that I am looking for. As I look into the new Combiner wars series, there are so many Autobots but so little of Decepticon...so this is really a rare find now.

Here is a short review of this awesome re-make figure!

Summer Surfing Santa Playmobil

I always picture Christmas will be a time of snowing and winter cold but when I saw this Playmobil, it remind me of the Christmas from down under which is hot summer time. So that is why this Santa who I assume as Australia are surfing.

He was in a blind pack and it is a easy pick when you feel the big surf board which is a giveaway there.

He comes with Santa hat, yellow Hawaii shirt, white hair and beard and the surf board.

Santa remain true to his branding with his reindeer on his personal surf board.

There is a plastic piece which is translucent that allow the figure to hold it's position so it can be really like stand firm on the surf board.

Too bad the arms cannot be raise side way to make him look really surfing.

Now looking at Santa himself, he really dress to enjoy himself. The flower pattern of his shirt look quite good...

But the print only remain on the front but not the back.

The hat and the beard can be remove and once you do, he will look super young and cool with his shade.

With the white hair, he look a bit weird tho. LOL

So that is Santa from down under! Merry Christmas mate!

Are you feeling the Christmas mood now?

BANDAI Movie Realization Stormtrooper coming

Not too long ago, in the galaxy here, Bandai release a Movie realization version of Samurai Shogan Darth Vader and following that success, they are releasing the Samurai Storm troopers!!

Instead of giving them a pure white dress code, they did a good thing to give a Ivory color that make it more authentic.

As it was in the age of Samurai, even the blaster look more to that era of steampunk with wood handle and metal barrel.

Look good holding both weapon although I still love them holding the samurai sword...

With Darth vader and 2 of the Stormtroppers on the side, they really look awesome!

Each of these Storm trooper will be releasing in May 2015 at 7,800Yen. If you want them, better save up!

Great news Transformers fan, the original 2015 line from Hasbro Transformers Combiner wars was spotted at Singapore retail! How that happen I don't know but just hit them if you can now Transformers fan!

You will have voyager class like Optimus Prime and Silverbolt for the main body of the combiner mode.

The Deluxe class are more for the arms and legs of the Combiner mode. On retail these deluxe was selling at $31.90 SGD. Yes the price went up.

Here is an example of the Conbimer mode. You need the following to form the Ultra Prime with Optimus prime as a chest.

If you have Silverbolt, it would be another choice., you may notice the deluxe figure can be both arm or leg to this two Combiners. Interesting right?

There are some interesting G1 Transformers which I delighted to see. Like Powerglide and Bombshell! There are the Legends class but they are not as tiny as the previous Legends line. There are sold at retail for SGD$19.90 tho...

Interesting line indeed that get some G1 Transformers fan like me excited.

3A Transformers Movie Bumblebee Coming

3A has been doing some big robot figure which is above 12" like their Real Steel series. Now 3A obtained the license of the movie Transformers and they will be releasing 17" figures of the Bumblebee in this month!

I have to say the details and scale look amazing from the movie series.

They even include the battle mask of Bumblebee/.

Regardless of the details, I doubt this series Transformers will not be able to transform as much as we wished it should be.

Here are the others Transformers Movie figure to come like Optimus Prime in January 2015 while
Megatron and Starscream in February 2015.

If you are a big fan of the movie, why not get this version?

What Toy to get for Christmas 2014

Elven more days to Christmas and I have people around me asking what to buy for Christmas regarding toys for their children or for themselves (You know who you are!). So I decided to do a post of what to buy for this Christmas 2014.

OTTi: Really? You want to post this post?

Yes I think this would be useful to some.

OTTi: Okay whatever. Let's start with the cheaper one.

If you must know the despicable pricing of Minions in Singapore has finally came down to a more down to earth pricing. So if you are thinking to get some Minions, this is a good time to get some!

OTTi: But the fever is over also...
Yet there is another movie coming next year. Would be the same Minions.

Gunpla Bearguy F
If there is one Gunpla to get girls and boy to be interested, it would be this Bearguy F.
This is a HG grade gunpla and they are cute! The best part about this would be you don't really need much painting or decal. Just assemble and it look good! A must have or good gift to received this Christmas. Pricing is SGD $30++.

OTTi: This is the mother and child.  Just like a part of a song of a Christmas carol...

Playmobil Christmas
There are not much toys going around in Christmas theme and one of them which does would be Playmobil. These enduring and affordable toys would be one I recommend parents to get for their kids. Depending on how big (size of the box) you want to get, the pricing can start from just $20 to about over a hundred. The below ones are just within $50.

OTTi: My goodness! There even have angels...

Baymax Big Hero 6
Now many into Baymax from the movie Big Hero 6 and as much fans love the movie and character, this Armor-up Baymax would be the most ideal gift for your kids. Selling around 50 SGD. 

OTTi: From the scale of 1 to 10, how thick is your wallet? :P
Actually this toy is more to older kids as they need to assemble the parts.

The force has been awaken but people just love the old episode IV to VI. Now it is a good time to get these big fellas for collectors who have room to display. It's 31 inches and selling for $79.95!!

OTTi: That pricing for such big figure is totally worth it! Some smaller figure already selling at $80.00!
Indeed but you must have lot of room to display these figures.

This year Christmas, you will be still having the movie version from Michael bay if your parent still want to buy Transformers for you. So I guess and hope they will get these box set for you to play.

For old school collectors, The classic Bumblebee is here too!
OTTi: Who want the old car? Dinobot rulez!

A good type of toys that most just follow the instruction to build the same toy even thought you were told be creative. Nonetheless they are only at around certain price range of hundreds and if you intend to get some good toy within that good pricing, I would recommend the Volkswagen campers and the Creator bike shop. These are recommend only for older kids like above 10 years old.

OTTi: Actually people just buy to built exact toys and will not use it to build another type. 

1/6 figures
Now we are moving up the pricing to even above SGD $200 and in the world of 1/6, I recommend this figure from famous Chinese movie by Enterbay, A Chinese Ghost Story of the late Lesile Cheung. The likeness of this figure is amazing!

OTTi: Some people said don't buy figure of people who passed away.
If base of this saying, does that apply to those collector who got those movie character like terminator, The Avengers now and when those actor or actress passed away, the collector need to throw away too?

The price of PS4 is getting lower to around SGD$600 and around holiday season there are many good offers. Since there are not much other game console in contest, it kind of make this playstation a default choice. That being said, there are only certain good titles and the games are rather limited as many of which are converted PS3 title to PS4 so those players who upgrade from PS3 to PS4 would spend the same money to buy the same game on PS4. 

OTTi: What? That does not make sense! Do people really do that?
Not all but unfortunately some do.

So that conclude this post for what to get for this Christmas.

OTTi: Wait a minutes, isn't these toys choices actually your own wishlist?

..... Shut up OTTi!

So here are my recommendation and if you have better suggestion, do share in our comment!
