Project 9707 x Michael lau.


Fashion designer Vivienne Tam gathered 10 different designers around the world for "Project 9707". Designers are Michael Lau, Ross Lovegrove, Jimmy Choo, Calvin Tsao, Zaha Hadid, Zandra Rhodes....etc. They are gather to design a tees base on the topic "impression 9707" to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong handover from the Britain to China.

According to Michael, his "impression 9707" represent the 10 years of Hong Kong. And to him it is an important time that from nobody know him to world famous figures artist. His design is starting off by very rough line, to represent the up and down of Hong Kong, but in the end the line is smoothly going back up, no matter how bad....in the end is always good.

Sam Flores - Billy Bronze - Book Edition.


Enjoy this Sam Flores : Billy Bronze a lot..!! Especially got the gold version (limited to 196 pcs) with Sam Flores signed. Got them from a local comic store. They only got one gold version in store and is signed, so I assume is going to cost me $50 for that gold version. But it end up selling it for $15. Is must be my lucky day.

Thank you...!!

Surprise to see a guy from Taiwan did a "review" for my site (in chinese). I'm glad to see many peoples out there share the same interest like me. I don't cover that many toys news as you all might notice, I just cover the stuff that I interest and the stuff that I will actually buy. That's my collector life in this site.

Thanks for your respect and appreciation, whoever you are.....!!!

ゲゲゲの鬼太郎 : Gegege no Kitarô.








I'm so happy to see this store when I was in Beppu in the town of Yufuin. It is a store all about ゲゲゲの鬼太郎 : Gegege no Kitarô. This cartoon was my childhood favourite. This store is selling everything about ゲゲゲの鬼太郎 : Gegege no Kitarô, I had a great time there and I bought myself some statues. That 3 foot Kitaro I want to take it home. I'm surprise there are no such store in Tokyo, but happen to have one in a small town.

The last picture is the figures of ゲゲゲの鬼太郎 : Gegege no Kitarô that will be release next year in Japan for the prizing machine. I took that shot at the game show that I attended in Tokyo.

Kaws x neighborhood zooth halloween dog.


What the.............!!!

Stuff that I got..~









Got it yesterday is the Winson Ma Apexplorer series T-REX color version. The figure is about 14" and not to mention the details equipment that come with the figure. Also pick up the Hot Toys Prison Break figures, Yulli did a great job on the head scuplt and not to mention the color producer J.C. Hong. I saw a hand painted figure before by J.C. Hong, he even painted the eye iris and pupil. This pair of figure pupil is painted too, but of course is not as detail as hand painted one.

**By the way, the new Hot Toys: appleseed-Deunan figure is sculpted by Yulli.**

iphone.


Got this from the Apple store when I was at New York last weekend. Now with a little help from my friend to unlock the phone, I have to say this is one good gadget.

Tim Tsui @ Mixi Bang.





Tim Tsui visited U.S. for his solo show. Honestly, I'm a bit sick of the DaMinci.....but I have to say the custom that he did for the exhibition is really nice. Especially.....the "Tetsuhin 28" is my favourite. The Tin Toy DaMinci (limited 100pcs) is a surprise release. A 3 foot DaMinci are at the show, but still don't know if is going to release or not....!! Do it Tim...why not.

Bootleg LamDog Soccer Goalie version....



Just saw this bootleg LamDog soccer on the net, they are not copying exacting from the original, but being creative to re-design it to a goalie version. Wearing a long sleeve jersey with LamDog logo, the figure also has a black LamDog goalie glove. These bootleg doesn't have the flocked base. Honestly....a goalie version is a good idea. These bootlegger is reaching another level by re-design it.

Kennyswork : Copperhead-18 "CUBE".



Kenny just finished the helmet prototype for Cube, the next character for the Copperhead-18 series. He install a light interface into the helmet. Still a long way to go Kenny.
