Errr.... no.

These will be kept sealed.

Still, I bought a Transformers junk lot recently and I'm getting some tools for my birthday.

I have a sad confession to make.
I love the ANNOYING ORANGE! Well, not literally.
It is the best idea for a show in years.
I admit I am a latecomer to the Orange, but nevertheless, am a fan.

I've been wanting an Annoying Orange toy since learning of him but are those things ridiculously pricey for, well, plastic fruit . First time I had ever heard of him I saw my brother trying to win one from a crane game.

Wal-mart had gobs of them on clearance for 5 bux a pop today.
Picked up 2 different Oranges and my daughter got Marshmallow.
They talk and each say different phrases. They are hilarious!!!

I saw this at Hot Topic the other day and just had to have it. It's a zombie dashboard figurine. It was an awful bright green color though, so this is how it looks after I painted it.

YES! I own this Lego set: the helicopter model isn't great at all, but the figures are excellent. Deadpool is very cool, and I also like the Magneto in this set.

Finally brought back my Hot Toys 1/6 scale TDK Tumbler from the hobby store.

Kind of hard to believe, but I just can't stop staring at it every few minutes. The sheer size and detailing on it just takes my breath away.

LOL! Nope, my kidneys are fine.

I did have to save for six months to afford that, though. The good thing about HT products is that you MUST pre-order in advance to ensure an available item, so I had plenty of time to save my pennies. Also, HT is notorious for frequent delays.

Buying after release is not really an option, as the items will be sold out the minute they hit the store.

I recently stumbled across these myslelf, and after a couple hours perusing and hearing the theme song from the Macross Saga in my head, decided to dive in (telling myself hey, they "kinda" fit in with Transformers LOL).

They can be a little pricey, but no more so than a decent Voyager, let along a 3rd party fig. They have the Veritech V1, Alpha and Beta fighters, and some of the minor characters mechs already...

2$... 2$ at a local thrift store. A vintage peice of my childhood, right there!

Here's the whole cast Passe-Partout's puppet segment! Ti-Brin is missing a hand, but I can sculpt him a new one with potty or something. Then, I'll just have to repaint them.

Oaky, by your confused looks, you are wondering what the hell I'm talking about.

Passe-Partout was the #1 TV show of my childood, for me and countless Québécois. The show aired from 1977 to 1987. I was born in 1976 so I'm a Passe-Partout kid.

Here's the intro song:


And have some classic clips. All in french, of course.





Nostalgia rush, man, nostalgia rush.

To finish, here's a whole show from 2006, doing a special retrospective about the cult series. In french, of course:

Gee, I don't really collect a lot outside of Transformers.

I've been picking up some of the Avengers 6 inch figures at a slow pace. So slow I only have Iron Man and Loki. Still looking for Hawkeye, and Captain America has been tempting me.

I've been trying to get my hands on this beauty:

You're probably wondering what the hell that is.

It's this guy:

Okay, that didn't help.

Better?

They didn't really release any other figure of any other character except Beat (the guy I just showed you three times), so it's rather rare.

I've had these guys for a while. They sit on my desk:

Otherwise, nothing too spectacular.

I grabbed a couple of Banpresto Millennium Godzilla kits a while back. I got both the black and green versions and they're supposedly the most accurate figures/models of that version of Godzilla ever created (they're supposed to be created/sculptured by the same guy who created the actual Kaiju suits for that movie/series of movies).

They look pretty awesom on my shelf. Assembly was required, but it wasn't too bad (except for the arms, getting those in was a real chore :P).

I also grabbed Hasbro's massive Cloverfield figure. That thing is incredibly creepy looking and extremely articulated with joints just about everywhere.

I got one of the 1997 big die-cast Voltron sets from BBTS when they had them up. I was always a fan of the original Voltron toys as a kid so I couldn't resist.

I just picked up a 1/60 Do You Remember Love VE-1 Elintseeker.
This was one of my favorites, and I wanted the DYRL version as it has the ability
to use the option parts.

I'm waiting for Yamato's eventual re-release of the DYRL VT-1 Super Ostrich--hopefully they'll fix the cracked shoulder hinge issue this time around.

You missed it buddy, It was a Japanese limited release, came and went in a blink of an eye. Now its retailing for about 400$+. Never even knew it had come out until after it was sold out.

I hate Japanese limited runs.

Wasn't the Elintseeker also a limited run? If Yamato re-released it, there's always a chance for a second go at the Super Ostrich too.

In any case, Yamato's been known to double or triple dip time and time again. They've been reusing the V2 VF-1 molds for ages (TV, DYRL, Low-Viz, Chavelier, VF-X, Anniversary), and will probably continue to use in the future. The YF-19 has also seen non-canon releases with its Anniversary, DN and BOP repaints.

Hell even the less popular VF-0's from MacZero have been re-released a couple years ago.

And since the VT-1 has seen only one release to date, there's every chance we might see Yamato dust off the mold for a second release.

I mean, they did re-release the Elintseeker, so why not the Super Ostrich? ;)

The Super Ostrich w/ Option parts was released a month or two ago. The Elintseeker is Order Stopped on HLJ but Japanese etailers on ebay are selling them as in stock, even though the release date is November.

I know Bandai is a pain in the ass with releases, but I'm hoping Yamato learns from the high secondary market prices that these tools need to be released again. I'd love to get my hands on the VF-19, in 1/60 or 1/48, but not for 3-500$ on eBay.

Wait, what?! Seriously? Are you sure you didn't mean the VF-1D reissue?

I've pored over a lot of Macross forums, but I haven't come across any news on this. Even Yamato's official Japanese site didn't mention anything.

QFT.

Fricking Bandai has been a real prick with their "web exclusive" V2 Macross Frontier valks. I consider myself lucky to have gotten the VF-25F, as well as the Super Parts. My local hobby store had to cancel Ozma's VF-25S and couldn't even bring in Michel's VF-25G for pre-order.

I used to think Yamato was better at distributing their product until recently. The VF-1D with optional parts was reissued right under my nose and I didn't even get wind of it; nether did my hobby store.

I was wrong, I realized I was thinking of the wrong valk.

Weapon: Dual Bladed Sword
I already posted it somewhere else, but what the hey, this is a better place anyway. :lol:

Outside of Transformers I have a couple of other loves: Gachapon toys or capsule toys from vending machines, Kamen Rider and Power Rangers/Super Sentai. But like with Transformers, the current Power Rangers Samurai offerings are very lean here; we have had the Morpher and Sword, 4" figures (both waves), Disc Cycles and now the Sword Cycles, and the first Megazord and Zord Vehicles. The Zord Vehicles appeared only a couple months ago in one single chain with the Beetle and Tiger. The Swordfish appeared only recently, but when I saw all three of them at once in the store I had to get them. and I'm glad I did. Especially since I had leftover gift vouchers and the store had a 15% off sale. I got them for roughly 50% of the total cost :DANCE:

The Samurai Battlewing is actually pretty nice, though the tail could have used a bit more work. Aside from that, he has a pretty decent wingspan and combined with the Samurai Megazord the whole does look pretty impressive. What I find a plus, compared to Tenkuu Shinken'oh, is that the two tiger drills have been relocated to the legs, and that he looks less back-heavy due to the Battlewing's size. However its size is also the main problem for the Samurai Battle Cannon with the OctozordSquidzord: too small. Still nice though, good substitute for DaiTenkuu, but not perfect.

I may have to ask my in-laws for the Clawzord (which I foolishly past on last time I was there :BANG_HEAD: ), the OctozordSquidzord and the Samurai Shark. Or pray they appear here in the Netherlands.
