All Chara Hobby 2010 images are taken from Ngee Khiong.

Sidestory: Local Lego Competition - Final part

Wait, I though last time I said I'm doing GM Striker's WIP next.

Oh well. Anyway, the Lego's are already on exhibition on a local mall, and they're going to announce the winner.

So I came.
The event's not starting yet.
Waits, wanders around.
The event finally started 2-3 hours late.
Blahblahblah introduction speech.
Blahblahblah Lego's representative from Denmark speech.
Blahblahblah Lego's local representative speech.
Blahblahblah representative from both participating universities speech.
Aaaaaand the winner is... whoa, already? (less than an hour from when the event started)

[New Stuff] SIC Vol. 54 Kamen Rider Ixa & Kamen Rider Dark Kiva

After not getting any SIC with the reason of price or design for a while, I finally gave in to the temptation and bought my very first SIC, Kamen Rider Ixa & Dark Kiva.

The Terror of Evil Woody

You could say this is a continuation from previous Revoltech Woody article.

2chan users had uploaded many pictures exploiting Sci-Fi Revoltech Woody's "evil face" (although 2chan users preferred calling it "perverted face"), with hilarious and/or creepy results.

WARNING: some pics are NSFW or just plain "cannot unsee".

Evil Revoltech Woody!!

I wasn't interested in the Revoltech lines (at least not yet). But when Sci-Fi Revoltech announced that they're gonna make Woody and Buzz from Toy Story, I can't help but get interested (not enough to make me buy them, but at least it piqued it)since Toy Story 3 touched me.
Then many news and review were up, and just because, I read most of 'em.

So the thing is, Woody gets a feature of moveable eyeballs and two interchangeable face.

The first face:

oh, I guess that's okay, dunno. Somehow I thought the face wasn't "neutral" enough, but wasn't "happy" enough either.
Oh well, let's just take a look on the second face, probably it's better...

Video Review of MG Figurise 1/8 Kamen Rider W Cyclone Joker

a video review of a sample of MG W Cyclone Joker by apronperson is out.

Detailed building review are available at Gunpla Secret factory (Japanese):
Part 1: Unboxing and Runners
Part 2: Neck and Body
Part 3: Head and Arms
Part 4: Lower Body

The figure looked very awesome with realistic articulation and gimmick (full finger joints FTW!).
I think I would buy this kit... if I'm not in a monetary pinch (which I do now ^^;)
so I guess I'll just wait till they do MG Fang Joker :3
