Marvel Select The Watcher

The Watcher was one of the few remaining already released Marvel figures that I wanted. Got him at a good price, but you get what you pay for. The figure's head is broken, it has wear and is discoloured. He still looks good enough to display though. And I actually quite like the "bobble head" feature he now has.

Spider-man line 3.75" Shocker

Hey toy fans! It's your friendly neighbourhood Spider-man! Bet you didn't expect to see me again after what happened last time.* I thought I was a goner, but then a giant hand came out of nowhere and carried me to safety. Its been months since that incident, I didn't hear from that toy guy again until recently. He said he had a special assignment for me. I wasn't too keen at first. But after hearing him out, I took the job.

(*See the post on the Lizard - Jason.)

Marvel Universe Psylocke

Surprised to see this on the pegs.  I can't remember the last time I got a new Marvel Universe figure from local retail. Happy to have gotten it.

Young Justice 4" Black Canary and Superboy

A look at a couple more Young Justice figures. I hope to give a better picture of the line and its compatibility with JLU figures.

Young Justice 4" Speedy and Kid Flash

With the Justice League Unlimited line ending, here's a look at Speedy and Kid Flash from the Young Justice line. These figures were actually released several months ago in the US. As far as I know, they are not available locally yet.

Click to enlarge

My 100th post! And it's also almost a year since I started this blog. Made a new header and cleaned the place up abit. For this milestone post, I would like to share my DC Animated collection with you. But before that, I would like thank everyone for visiting. Especially Super Duper Toy Box for dropping by so often.

Justice League Unlimited 7-Pack

The Justice League Unlimited (JLU) line has been on the brink of death many times before. But this time it may truly be the end. This seven figures are said to be the last of the line. They are Gypsy, The Creeper, Johnny Thunder, Thunderbolt, Crimson Avenger, Speedy and Dr Midnight.

DC Universe Classics Stargirl

I was going to post this earlier. But I noticed something. Spot it? Its her right arm. Shes got two left arms... A return or exchange would be troublesome as I got it online. So I decided to get another piece. A loose one of course, it's abit cheaper.

Anime Festival Asia 2011

Attended Anime Festival Asia (AFA) for the first time. It certainly was an experience.

BLEACH Rukia Kuchiki

Continuing the mini BLEACH showcase, here's Rukia Kuchiki. She's a Shinigami but as you can see, she's not dressed like one. I did consider getting a figure of her in Shinigami attire, but decided this would be fine as its how I best remember her. At the time of posting, I've only watched up till the point where Ichigo was training to achieve Bankai (second release state of his zanpakuto) in the anime.

BLEACH Ichigo Kurosaki

Just a quick note, Anime Festival Asia 2011 (AFA2011) will be held this weekend from 11 November to 13 November at the SUNTEC Convention and Exhibition Hall Singapore. Click the link for details. *Open to public only on 12 November and 13 November. 

Having followed K-On! earlier this year, I developed an interest in anime. So I've watched and been following various series on Animax. They include The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star and currently, I'm watching BLEACH. It's a good show, fun and engrossing. In light of AFA2011, I'll be posting about two figures from BLEACH. First up will be Ichigo Kurosaki.

DC Direct Infinite Crisis Power Girl

Wanted this figure back when it was released but was always put off by the price. Had forgotten about it since getting the DCUC version. Chanced upon it online for a good price and promptly purchased it.

Fantastic Four Classics Dragon Man

Have been deliberating for some time whether to open this figure. Since it's posted, guess you know my decision.

Real Steel Deluxe Figure 6" ATOM

Recently caught the movie. Loved it! Went to check out the toys. Decided on the 6" version. Was thinking for five dollars more, it would be more worth it as I would get a bigger toy. The line must be pretty popular as it took some time before I found this piece.

Marvel Universe Astonishing Wolverine

Its been awhile since my last Wolverine figure purchase. Well... not counting those that came in multi-packs that is. This costume is my second favourite after the tiger striped version.

Thor Comic Series 6" Loki

Have been looking forward to this Loki figure. The ML13 one didnt last long on the display shelf. I have limited space. His horns were long, the cape was too big and he kept falling so he had to make way. Even when I changed the display, for some reason, I always passed on him. Finally this major villain gets a spot on the shelf.

Thor Movie Series 6" Thor

Finally, some new Marvel 6" figures. No, its not available locally as far as I know.

Asgardian Glow Marvel's Odin

I already had the previous version, but I thought the colours were pretty cool and so I got it.

Bat-Mite Presents: Batman Legacy Golden Age Batman

Hey toy people, are you looking for this Batman figure? He's should be available in most stores. But if you're looking to get me too, I'm only available at K-mart. Batman and me packed together, how great is that! And what fun it is to see you scrambling around, just looking for us! For those of you not in the US, I see theres plenty of us on ebay. Wow! Is that how much we're going for? Forget this, I'm off to K-mart!

Justice League Unlimited STRIPE

I've been wanting a JLU STRIPE figure for a long time, so much so that I made a custom of him back when around Stargirl was released in the three-pack to stand in. There's a pic of that below. I'm glad to have got this figure, my custom is cracking up, literally.

Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention 2011 Part 1

The Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention 2011 has come and gone. I attended both days. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Last years' event was better. Still, had some fun. Got to check stuff out, meet guests and take pics. And boy did I take lots of pics. Read on to check them out !

Tech Deck Sk8 Parks (Stairs and Ramp)

Have I started collecting Tech Deck ? Fortunately no. But some of their playsets might be worth a look. They can work with 3.75" scale and smaller figures .

Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention 2011 (update and some thoughts)

SUNTEC Singapore 

Just three weeks to go till STGCC 2011. The guests list and event schedule are out. There may still be changes. But from whats revealed, I'm not as enthusiastic about this years' event than I was the past three editions.

Captain America: 3.75" Marvel's Hydra Armored Soldier (variant)

After almost a month of posts of Captain America figures, thought I wouldn't be doing another for awhile. Then I got this. The variant Marvel's Hydra Armored Soldier figure.

Green Lantern Hal Jordan

With the movie just days away, thought I do a post on the Hal Jordan figures that I have.
