It's a wrap.

    Okay fellas, it's been a while since my last post! Sorry as I've been busy overseas with work, and then I injured my bloody fingers in a freak rope burn incident, so basically I'm typing twice as slow using only my index fingers lol. Just a short update bout the results for the Mid Yr Challenge. I got a 'Best Age' entry, but I don't really know what it means actually - there already is a 144 black Age 2 at 3rd place in the Top 3, so erm, doesn't that make mine '2nd-Best Age entry'?? Or how bout "Next-Best Age Entry'??? LOL. I wouldn't even have known I won something at all cos as you can see from the results link on Bandai's page, it wasn't announced. Oh well, anyway, I'll take it! And next stop - GBWC! See you guys there.

S'pore Gundam Mid-Yr Challenge 2012

    This is a belated post, obviously. I only just had time this weekend to check out the event at Takashimaya. Toymaker has already blogged about it, so for more pics, check out his post. I'll just point out a few stand-out entries from his pics:

Is SQUARE ENIX the new Hot Toys?

    While we take a break from Gundam, here's checkin' out Play Arts by Square Enix, a video game company. Their 'Kai' series of figurines stand approximately the height of a large MG kit, and maaaaan, are their designs and proportions sweet. I call 'em figurines rather than action figures, because although these babies come with articulated joints, don't expect any PG-type mobility. These are more like mini-sculptures for the average fan. At this size, I feel they are more comfortable than Hot Toys' 1/6 scale, which is a tad too big (and too expensive) for my liking. So anyway, let's get down to it. I found two new shiny Halo Spartans to go with Master Chief. Yeah!

AGES ASSEMBLE!! [AGE Trident dio for Mid-Yr Challenge]

    So here we go! I might just be able to pull this off. As you know, I've churned out 3 Ages with no plan to submit them for any competition, and then up until slightly over a week ago, I decided ah hell why not just send them for the Mid-Yr compy. Presenting, the AGE Trident!! Next step was to come up with a dio. Bang!
