Transformers: Generations Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Class Starscream Part 2

Not bulky enough? Let's bulk him up even more

More images of Transformers: Generations Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Class Starscream in his Cybertronian jet mode after the introduction in the previous posting. ^^

The plain, weapon-less look of the jet mode:

你吃你的, 我睡我的

Saw this lazy cat sleeping beneath my table when I was having dinner at a food court just now.


It moved its sleeping location once the whole time I was there, but didn't bother to turn around to take a look at the human sitting right next to it at all. ^^ My business of eating my dinner right next to it was obviously none of its to care one bit. ^^

Zen cat. ^^

1/100 Gundam Exia Roll Out Color Ver. Part 7

"Setsuna F. Seiei, exterminating the target!" IX

Another round of action poses from 1/100 Gundam Exia Roll Out Color Ver. after the previous posting means another opportunity to extend the numbering of the reused tagline above. XD


Supported using a wire stand meant for Gunplas.
The thrown GN Long Blade is supported using Soul Stage Act 4 for Humanoid Clear.

1/100 Gundam Exia Roll Out Color Ver. Part 6

"Setsuna F. Seiei, exterminating the target!" VIII

Some action poses from 1/100 Gundam Exia Roll Out Color Ver. after the previous posting. ^^

By the way, the numbering of 'VIII' above represents a continuation of the tagline that has been used in my Gundam Exia reviews since Part 7 of the original 1/100 Gundam Exia's. The most recent posting, 'VII', was for Part 11 of 1/100 Gundam Avalanche Exia. ^^

As the numbering itself somewhat represents the numerous variants of Gundam Exia in my collection, I'm determined to continue this "tradition" of using the same tagline in other applicable Gundam Exia reviews, just to see how far I can take the numbering to. ^^

1/100 Gundam Exia Roll Out Color Ver. Part 3

Retcon the Seven Swords

Finally, after a very long delay (for more than a year ^^;), I'm going to assemble this Gunpla. ^^

It's time to roll out 1/100 scale Gundam Exia Roll Out Color Ver. (I did that intentionally XD).


Real Grade 1/144 scale Gundam RX-78-2 and HGUC Kampfer were the first and second Gunplas I worked on in this year respectively, but this kit is going to be the first to be assembled. ^^

Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition Part 5 [Final]

Super Movable Saber meets normal movable Saber

All action poses from Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition in this last posting of the review series. ^^

Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition Part 4

A Nendoroid figure who can perform a kneeling pose?!

Despite the emphasis shown in her name, the articulation design of Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition only gets formally introduced in the fourth chapter of this review series. ^^;



While Saber is definitely the first release to feature the so-called "Super Movable" enhanced articulation design, she isn't the first in the series to be reviewed on my blog: that honor goes to Hatsune Miku Absolute HMO Edition. ^^

Then again, looking at the many releases in the Nendoroid series right now, this enhanced articulation design is really not a big deal anymore, and has become a rather typical feature for certain releases. ^^ I know many of the releases from "Fate/Stay Night", like Saber Nendoroid Complete File Edition, Saber Alter, Archer do feature this design. ^^

Arguably, Good Smile Company is capable of designing all of their Nendoroid releases with this articulation feature, although it's obviously clear that's not necessary at all. ^^

So are you showing or not?

Saw this rainbow that seemed to be indecisive in whether it wanted to show up or not just now as I was about to drive home from work. ^^;


Just go home Mr. Rainbow. 6.30PM is too late to be showing up for work.

Sunday Movie Theater: Cutthroat Island (1995)

Old but gold

After side-lining this posting series for almost 20 months since the review on the gore flick "Darah" (2009) in late September 2013, Sunday Movie Theater returns with a good old pirate movie that has nothing to do with the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise. ^^


Movie poster is from IMDB.

Like the usual reviews on model kits and collectibles, I think I'll need to keep the writing in this series shorter now, so that I won't go on and on about the details and exhaust myself everytime I talk about the movies I enjoy. ^^

Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition Part 1

One from my Saber army

Much like Super Robot Chogokin GaoGaiGar and Key of Victory Set 1, this upcoming review is on a long overdue item from my collection. ^^

And it's a very cute one too.

Super Robot Chogokin Key of Victory Set 1 Part 2

Just-for-show elements

Going through all the individual components in Super Robot Chogokin Key of Victory Set 1 after the introduction in the previous posting. ^^

The weapon pack's intended "user", Super Robot Chogokin GaoGaiGar is on standby to demonstrate some of the parts' application. ^^

Super Robot Chogokin Key of Victory Set 1 Part 1

Preliminary combination

Mentioned in the last posting on Super Robot Chogokin GaoGaiGar that its review wasn't ending back then. Its connection with this option weapon pack is the reason for that continuan. ^^


Even though I'm setting it as a new review series, since it is technically a standalone merchandise, but due to the significant connection between the two, I think it would be perfectly appropriate for Key of Victory Set 1 to be included as an extra component in the previous review. ^^
