Getting Hitched

As my wedding day is getting close, I'd like to take a month break from blogging and focus more on preparing for it. My excitement for this day is intense and I'm very happy to be married to my one true love.

"I changed my blogsite's name, and therefore does not exist."

I realized that the name is long and probably hard to remember (kinda like my real actual name), and so I changed it to THIS

A Comic Con With My Fiancé

Before we will be tying the knot and exchanging our vows, ...and will finally move to a new chapter in our lives and all that marriage stuff, I just showed this lovely lady one of the few places where geeks like me love to go- Comic Cons! Probably one of the biggest Con Events in Ontario with so many attendees, the Toronto Comic Con is where my fiancé discovered the source of my fanboyishness ...and badassery.

Marvel Legends Made

10 months ago, I voiced my frustration and concern about some of Hasbro's promises which failed miserably to the point where I thought the figures that they're suppose to release may have been lost and forgotten. But as what I hoped for, Hasbro slowly immersed some of these "Lost Legends" into every new Marvel Legends Wave that has been released or to be released. These guys finally found their way into our store shelves, but it took months for them to arrive. Better late than never, I suppose!

X marks stand for "Released and/or Available"

A box within a box? ...who could this be?


And so there you go; three action figures and a collectible in one box, ...and a chance to examine them at Combo's Action Figure Collection. Watch out for my reviews on these figures especially this S.H.Figuarts Broly, because he looked really awesome and superior just by the looks alone.

Marvel Chess Collection: A Collection In Progress

I started playing the game of chess back when I was a sophomore. It was in those times when action figures and collectibles aren't really my thing. I considered it as one of my good talents and I've joined a few competitive chess events when I was in college.

Student life was over, got a job and slowly lost interest in the game. I got into collecting action figures... and found this! As simple as they look, for me- it is like two hobbies merged into one.
