Simone Legno's autographs at STGCC 2014

Wife and I are tokidoki fans. Every year we look forward to Simone Legno (tokidoki creator) visiting Singapore at STGCC to meet up with him, and also get his autographs and sketches.

This year, we bought along both our Pullip Violettas - 1 opened, 1 in box - for Simone to autograph. We asked if he could give our Violetta personalised 'tattoos' ( just like he gave our Pullip Luna last year ) and he duly obliged!

Transformers Jetfire (Leader-class)

When I was young, one of my favourite Transformers is Autobot Jetfire. Not because of the cartoon or comics, but because the G1 toy was a Macross VF-1S Valkyrie fighter/mecha. Yes, I was a fan of Macross even before Transformers. ;)

Of course, Hasbro was never able to reissue Jetfire based on that design due to licence issue. But this Generations Leader-class Jetfire comes pretty darn close, down to the rocket boosters!

SDCC 2014 tokidoki x Pullip and Dal

Just revealed on tokidoki's blog - Pullip Super Stella and Dal Vendettina will be sold at SDCC 2014!

This is the first time a convention-exclusive Pullip is a tokidoki collab. Also the first time we have a tokidoki x Dal doll.

Unfortunately, according to the blog only 250 dolls were made! Hope there's a chance of getting them from other sources... and at reasonable price!

Review: Lego 70816 Benny's Spaceship

Do you want to build a spaceship?
It'll be colored blue and gray
I just cannot wait anymore
To open up the box
Let's finish this today!

I've actually completed building this set 2 weeks ago but haven't had time to post this. Building this set brings back memories of all the old classic space sets I've built long ago. Wave of nostalgia when I poured out those blue, grey and yellow bricks!

Panini World Cup sticker albums

I found my old World Cup Mexico'86 and Italia'90 Panini sticker albums! Mexico is complete but Italia missing a few stickers. I haven't bought anymore after these, not even this year's.

Quite nostalgic looking through them and seeing familiar names, many of whom are managers now. They look so young then!

Toys loot - Tokyo April 2014

Wife and I went for an impromptu holiday to Tokyo... yes, again! Wife has never seen the sakura cherry blossoms in full bloom, so we decided to take this chance. Besides cherry blossom viewing and hanami, of course we also plan for toy shopping! We didn't buy as much as our previous trips, but we're happy with our purchases.

Firstly, our Yotsuba & Danboard loot! We came across this Yotsuba & Danboard exhibition being held at Sunshine 60 observatory in Ikebukuro, and were pleasantly surprised to find some great stuff there. We bought the Ts because of the Danbo peeping out from the pocket. Even the shirt label is a Danbo face, too cute!

Transformers: Age of Extinction trailer

Just released today: first trailer for the new Transformers: Age of Extinction movie. We have our first good look at Mark Wahlberg... erm, the Autobots and Decepticons with their new designs.


My first impression is not much difference from the previous Bayformers designs. The bot that caught my eye is the one that Optimus Prime rides on. It should be Grimlock, but looks more like a dragon than a dinosaur/T-rex.

Here's my G1 interpretation of the above scene. "C'mon Grimlock! Just like in the trailer!"
Riding Grimlock

Which Transformer are you most looking forward to in the movie?

Lego X-Wing MicroFighter

Lego just released the new Star Wars MicroFighters series. These are chibi (small) Star Wars vehicles with minifigures sitting outside them - too big to fully fit inside. And they are cute! I just bought my first set: Lego 75032 X-Wing Fighter
