The last post for the year is of the Star Wars The Black Series 6" Princess Leia. How I wish it were under different circumstances. I was sad to hear the news that Carrie Fisher had passed away. And then to hear that her mother, Debbie Reynolds passed away just a day later... it's very heartbreaking. Both were outstanding individuals.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was okay. It felt kinda lacking. I think it just needed a bit more urgency. The first third of the movie is choppy and slow. Thankfully it gets better after that. The characters again are okay but didn't really give me that extra "I must get that figure" feeling. If I had to pick one it'll probably be Jyn. There's lots of great action and the visuals are stunning. I love the final battle scene. And Darth Vader was great! There are several cameos and easter eggs so do look out for them. Right, now here's a look at two characters from the movie, Director Krennic and the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader.

Disney rarely disappoints when it comes to their animated features and Moana is set to be another hit. It is a fun, entertaining adventure movie with a kick ass heroine. The visuals are stunning. The music is wonderful and I dare say there will be a couple of songs you will soon be humming to.
Just some pics from the festive light up event at the Art Science Museum with Disney's Moana yesterday evening. Auli'i Cravalho (voice of Moana), Osnat Shurer (Producer), Griselda Sastrawinata (Visual Developement Artist) and Roger Lee (Lighting Artist) were on hand to do the honours for the light up and help kick off the Holiday Season.

In attendance at the press conference were Auli'i Cravalho (voice of Moana), Osnat Shurer (Producer), Roger Lee (Lighting Artist) and Griselda Sastrawinata (Visual Devlopement Artist).

I visited the Collecting Magic: From Stamps to Wands Exhibition today which is being held at the Singapore Philatelic Museum (SPM) from now till 30 June 2017. The event features Harry Potter stamps from around the world and also movie memorabilia. I must say SPM is doing a good job of getting visitors to revisit. Or I should say getting me to revisit. They have held a number of interesting exhibitions the past couple of years. I recall the Star Wars, DC Super Heroes and Snoopy ones just to name a few.

Happy Halloween! So how was your day? Good I hope. Mine was fun but exhausting. There were a number of events being held on the same day and I went around visiting a couple of them. My first stop was GnB Comics which was participating in the Halloween ComicFest 2016.

"You wonder what I see in your future?". That's easy! I foresee you watching Dr Strange at the first opportunity. There has never been a Marvel movie quite like this one and you certainly don't want to miss it! I highly recommend catching it in 3D. The visuals are stunning and it is definitely worth the price of the ticket. Read on if you would like to know more.

Here's a look at the Star Wars The Black Series 6" Death Trooper. It's a tough figure to find currently but I think it will be easier to get in the coming months. I got lucky and snagged one back during Rogue Friday.

The third edition of GameStart has concluded, bringing an end to three days of fun and exciting gaming activities. The event continues to draw the crowds and the halls were packed as attendees got to try out some of the new and upcoming games, as well as witness some pulsating Esports action. And with several new activities to participate in there was even more reason to attend.

GameStart 2016 has begun! Day 1 is the best time to check out the games and that's exactly what I did. While most went for the mainstream ones, I decided to go check out some of the Indie games.

Slashy Hero is an isometric dungeon crawler game developed by The Gentlebros, a Singapore based company. The game was actually released last year in October and it is coming up on its First Anniversary. I only got to know of the game during the GameStart 2016 Press Conference last week. Intrigued, I downloaded it and I've been enjoying it so far.

I'm not sure what's up with me the past few days. I just feel so exhausted. I practically slept the whole weekend. And I had intended to get some photos done too... I did manage some. And it's a quick look at the rest of the figures from the Marvel Legends Dormammu BAF series. They are Dr Strange, Brother Voodoo, Enchantress and Dormammu himself.

Cowabunga! The Turtles were in town. The S.H.Figuarts classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line that is. That and more seen at the Bandai / Tamashii Nations booth at STGCC.

There's a number of new faces in the Artist Alley at STGCC this year. Several stalls caught the eye, including one ZEKEZACHZOOM which I recall seeing at the Star Wars Day event earlier this year. I decided to have a chat with him.
