This Week's New Stuff - 002

It's been awhile I haven't got into a toy shopping spree, but this week I bought two really fantastic figures that I had been waiting to come out.

Marvel Select Storm
As a Marvel Select collector, I have to grab this MS Storm and check out all her features. The paint detail and sculpt looks nice yet she seem to have less articulation, ...but I'll be talking about her real soon- probably next year (booo!). Yeah, I have to finish reviewing some old (and awesome) Marvel Select and Legends action figures that I have already planned for December.

Now this here is what I'm most excited about! Along with Storm, this Knight Rider car also came out this week and I can't wait to unbox it. I can assure you that this one here is going to be really dope.

MOTUC Battle Cat
Here's another sweet ride and it's all the way from Eternia; it's the Battle Cat! Now this Battle Cat has been around for quite some time now. It's not really a new release this week, but just one of my newest purchases. As soon as I get all the major characters of the Masters of the Universe Classic toylines, then I'll start talking each and everyone of them on my other blog.

So it is going to be a busy 2013 for me. I'm just hoping I could cover all the new and exciting releases and those previously released action figures that I have been wanting to have. It's going to a non-stop feature of action figures.

Cosplay Philosophy

Let me share you my take on cosplay. Maybe I could be a great "cosplay philosopher" and make few good thoughts to ponder about for guys and girls planning to enter into this realm. Maybe I can help you become a real head-turner everytime there are some comic cons or toy cons, or those crazy geeky events in your town. So here are my Four Pillars to Successful Cosplaying.

1. Armor Hides Everything

Probably when you go wear a Britney Spears months before rehab-costume, then you wouldn't have to worry about those cellulites on that badonkadonk butt and those love handles. But this is your first time doing cosplay, and we don't want people think that you're too ambitious. So wrap yourself around with spandex, cover yourself with fur or gear yourself up with hard plastics because these are your shields against any green-eyed monsters just wanting to hate you.

2. Bad Is Beautiful

Human beings are naturally equipped with some kind of "super-senses" to detect evil when they're around. This is how our species survive against threats for more than a thousand years. There is something about being evil that makes everyone restless, and this is the very reason why you should use its dark powers to your advantage. Use it wisely, don't let anyone assume that deep inside you're just an adorable cuddly bear.

3. Assets Play Supporting Role


When you look upon the stars, do you find yourself somewhat destined to wear a costume of a superhero? You see... you don't have to look further into the galaxy, it is just right at the tip of your nose, the strands of your hair, the surface of your skin, the callouses on your toes. These are the assets you already have that would save you time, effort and money from going into a salon, or starting a Vegan diet. Your natural assets may be useful in certain occasions.

4. Creativity Is A Virtue

And that is how Picasso became one of the renowed artists of all time. Creativity is inarguably a must have on a resume of any artist, including cosplayers. You gotta make people say- "that's something I don't see in an ordinary day!" Try get everyone puzzled until they'll recognize it and say- "Sheldon!" If this was like the American Idol, try to be the "voice-gymnast" of cosplay, just don't get to the point of using fresh lean meat and go Gaga!

So... I hope you enjoyed all those photos and probably smirked at those things I just said. All these just came from a very well-thought out and well-observed character of mine. Until then, ...remember to keep yourself busy because doing nothing can be very hard, you never know when you'll finish.

Fan Event Attendance - 001

This time I brought photos from the Burlington ToyCon, which was held last week, November 4, 2012. This is just my 2nd time coming into this toy conference in Burlington, Ontario and I always have a great time. There are just dozens of collectible toys to choose from; some of them are overpriced and some are of great deal. But most importantly, you'll always find some of the stuff you're looking for such as Transformers, Marvel, Star Wars, and vintage toys... and others.

Toy Biz Marvel Legends!

This muscle car is like their all-time signature item that reminds everyone that they're in the Burlington ToyCon.

And as soon as there's going to be another one of these ToyCon events, I'll be expecting myself to be there!

It's Halo Night Once Again

Just two more days and gamers will experience another night of first-person shooting mayhem! That's right! Halo 4 will be out November 6 in stores everywhere. If you're not a fan or not a gamer at all, then still Halo 4 will be out November 6 in stores everywhere, it doesn't wait for you to become a fan or a gamer.

In fact, I'm not a fan myself. I just like watching some Halo gameplays on YouTube. I like how the action figures look everytime I see some at Toy R Us and Wal-Mart, but there is one that I am truly psyched about.

It's the one from Play Arts- the Gold Spartan. If you're into video game action figures, I would recommend this Spartan over the ones from McFarlane.

...and as to why I don't play Halo. Well, lets just say I am pretty tied up with all the different stuff I do for fun.
