Epoch Capsule Collection Kart

Beside the Epoch articulated Robot, the same series offer 2 Karts and this review is about the Kart.

It comes with quite a number of parts and I will put up the front of the Kart first.

Assemble the steering and the paddle.

Then the 2 front wheels. In this configuration it seems like the Walker to have a comfortable transport.

However we are still far from complete as we have the back of the Kart. It comes with multiple parts waiting to be assemble.

First joined the base of the Karts and the chair.

Putting up the parts and you have a functional looking Kart. 

As a toy this is amazing when you put the figure of the same series in it. 

It run smoothly for a toy and as a display toy, it look awesome!

More on this figure later.

Epoch Capsule Collection Robot

Not too long ago saw these good articulated capsule or some called Gashapon figures and I went hunting for it high and low. Finally thanks to a friend I got these!!

I will review on the figure first as it offer good many articulations. There are instructions of joints and assembly found on the instruction sheet.

This series are having 2 robot looking figures in White and in full black. This review is on the black robot.

If you are into model kit, you would see something similar on the joint that comes in runner. You take them out, you may need to use some cutter to do so in order to have clean cut.

You need to assemble the joint which come in 2 pieces to be of one piece and the articulation will be there. 

Assemble 6 of them and you are ready for the next steps to assemble it.

For the body parts (not the joints) the material is like rubbery plastic that allow some degree of bending 

Assembling them is rather easy but you need to ensure the joints are completely fitted.

You need to make sure you do put in the correct side of the joint as one side is long while other is short.  You need that for balance and gripe.

One it is done, the figure look amazing. It really a good looking robot.

Although with out any expression, the articulation would have give it good pose for expression using body languages.

At the back of the robot, it look rather bare but this is just an skeleton so I think it's alright. Plus it is not in any gender.

I am pleased to see how they can make a capsule toy with such articulation and in just at 300 Yen.  

I don't have much expectation since the price is low but the joy it offer was great! I would pose more of this later. Oh and the Kart too! LOL

Good job Epoch.

LEGO Disney Minifigure MOC Display Bases

When you collect the latest LEGO Disney Minifigures, what do you do? You will display it of course but for hardcore LEGO fans, it would be a good way to use your creativity to make base for each one of them and that was exactly what Angela Chung did!

First off is Maleficent in the old store room where sleeping beauty who would discover a spindle. She is figuring out her evil plan?

Peter Pan and Captain Hook will be fighting on a pirate ship and be careful hook, there's a crocodile as usual waiting for you in the water!

Minnie and Mickey base would be a lovely picnic in a park near a pond where some love bird meet. While there was not Pluto, it has been replaced by Scoobydoo.... wait Scooby is not under Disney!! Lol

Meanwhile Donald Duck (not Trump) and Daisy are having some dancing session in the comfort of their home. Seems like Donald had pop the question looking at the 2 golden rings and flower on the flower... oh the ring look like having some elvish writing...My Precious!!!!! but why have 2 and not 1? LOL

Back in the Arabia in the busy market. Aladdin is on a busy market with Abu the monkey on his side The Genie looking at a distance looking...

And in Andy's room, there was where the toys are left. Seem like Andy are more older looking at the decoration of his room. The toys are now having a party since Andy hardly come back home during the day. Do note Woody and Jessie are not from the Disney Minifigure series but the box set.

Under the Sea, Little Mermaid and her friends are there. Where else you expect her to live?

While on top of the ocean, Stitch is alone because he was the only one left out surfing not the web but the wave. A healthier choice.

Syndrome was busy fighting the skinny version of Mr. Incredibles with his robot....I would have swear that was the son of Mr. Incredible. LOL

Alice on the other hand are still in wonderland and Cheshire the cat are on the tree doing her cat thing like napping. Oh Mr Rabbit has become a real rabbit it seems.

I have to give credit to Angela Chung who show her passion in making such wonderful base for this series. Hopefully this inspire more LEGO collector to actually start building and create your own creation and not keep them in box. You may view more details of her create over at her Flickr page.

Till then, keep on building!

Disney LEGO Minifigures Syndrome

In the animation The Incredibles, you would expect Syndrome would not get much love since he is the villain and he is not one of those villain you would love. However in the LEGO Disney Minifigure series, Syndrome look so much better than Mr Incredibles himself.

So that make me pick him out (by purely feeling since the hair piece is a giveaway.

Out of the package, he do come in separate parts like these.

The only accessory he has was this blue print which I believe is a tablet or pad that show his robot machine Omnidroid 07.

The back of him do make him look tall with his standing hair style....

The plus point of this figure was the details which you can see the arms are specially design with print of his gauntlet that control which suppose to control his Omnidroid. I love the details on his sneakers too!

Now it is time for Syndorme to meet with another villain of mine, Maleficent.

Yes part can be swap but looking good is another question entirely. LOL

Some look better than the other.

What do you think of Syndrome. Is he better looking in LEGO minifigure than Mr incredible?

You tell me!

Also read review of Alice, Stitch, Maleficent and Minnie Mouse of these series.
