DC Collectibles Batman: The Animated Series (BTAS) Harley Quinn

2015 is coming to an end and what a year it's been. I've posted my highest number of toys for a year and yet I still didn't get through all that I wanted. A couple of you have asked about the Marvel Legends Rhino BAF series. I'm not sure if I'll get to them cause there are several upcoming things which I think you're want to see more. Events wise I attended a lot. When they're based on Marvel and Star Wars it's hard not to want to go. It's very likely there will be some things based on DC next year. I'm looking forward to it. 

Right for the final post of the year, here's Ha-Ha Harley Quinn.

DC Collectibles The New Batman Adventures (TNBA) Killer Croc & Baby Doll

"Batman came sniffing around the quarry you see. He was getting closer. And closer. And then I threw a rock at him!" Lol. That was one of the most memorable lines. Though it was actually Batman who said it. Here's a look at Killer Croc and Baby Doll.

Anime Festival Asia (AFA) 2015

Anime Festival Asia 2015 (AFA15) was a blast! I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. It was going to be hard to top last year's mega edition but organisers SOZO I felt did just that. Occupying the entire fourth level once again and also the concourse level, this year's event featured close to 200 booths and had numerous activities and events, some of which were new elements such as the comedy segment. There was something for everyone.

Anime Festival Asia (AFA) 2015 - Two Recommendations

I caught a couple of acts on Day 1 of AFA 2015 which I thought were fun and cool. The first of which was a special performance by Real Akiba Boyz. They are a b-boy group who dance to anime theme songs. They danced to music from Love Live! and Shingeki no Kyojin yesterday just to name a few. Their performance was fun, energetic and at times comical. They will make another appearance on Saturday, 28 November 2015 at 3.15pm at the mini-stage. I'm not sure if they will be performing though. If that is the case you can check them out on Youtube. More info can be found on the AFA guest page

STGCC 2015: XM Studios and Hand Made Objects(HMO)

XM Studios put up another impressive display at STGCC. The winner of Best Statue Company 2014 as voted by Statueforum showed us why they are deserving of the title with their various high quality and amazingly detailed statues and busts.

STGCC 2015: Hot Toys, Action City and Star Wars SG

I keep saying this every year. Hot Toys had a great booth at STGCC. I was hoping to see a 1/6 scale Millennium Falcon but that was not to be. At least we had a Tie Fighter which was cool to see. From it you can imagine just how big the Falcon must be. Another time perhaps.
