This is my KO copy

This is my copy (I can say) of Takara Transformers Nike Free Optimus Prime and Megatron, but this pair is just a KO or bootleg of the original version which was release a year ago. Below is the posting at TFormers.com last year:

Takara continues to release more innovative and imaginative products with the new Transformers Sports Label series! This new series features 1/2 scale transforming Nike shoes! These licensed items should be somewhere around 6″ in length in shoe mode and it looks like they even have real laces connected to the top of the shoe. Convoy and Megatron are also each sporting a miniature pair of Nike Free 7.0 as a finishing touch.

I actually can’t believe that I won’t able to grab one of the original version of this. What a shame, I actually no idea when they release and only just recently I got an information with this after one year. So what I did was, I immediatey surf to the internet, amazon and Ebays if I will still be able to grab one of this, but unfortunately I only got this Ko version and I don’t see anymore of the original version so I don’t have any idea what is the pricing right now of this cool stuff by Takara.

I just like to share this nice video of this lucky guy who able to own one of this rare version of Transformers.

Munny Custom – Voltes V (Five)

This is my first attempt to customize Munny by KidRobot the D.I.Y. Toy, so if you see it’s not that good but good enough I can say for beginner’s like me ūüôā . I try to make a lot of concept first and decided to design it from my childhood robot hero “Voltes V”. You can see in my previous post the latest release of this robot.

I use Krylon acrylic spray paint and with the combination of Testors paint. For lining and edging I just use a simple Pilot fine point highlighter. I’m not sure if this is really a good way or materials for painting this toy, I try to google around but no luck I can’t get a good idea what exactly they using to make it really cool. Though I got a good article by painting a surf board with “Pentel” acrylic markers but unfortunately its not available here in Vancouver, Canada or maybe hard to find. Online is not my option right now so try to make it what is available here in my place. And yap, not bad I come it with cool design of Munny and I’m more interested now to follow it up with a new one. The design is already in my mind so I can’t wait to get one again. So for now see you in some forum talking about Munny design, here is the forum site where I in now.

Check it out and see you there. If you have other known best site to discuss this toy, please let me know I’m happy to know more about this community. Happy Munny’s Day!!!

My Optimus Prime-Premium Series

Last weekend my family and I got a chance to visit Seattle, USA. It was a fun and exciting experience for the family. For me it was also like a dream come true, as we know that “grunge music” was originated in Seattle and made famous by band like Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

Well the best thing about going to Seattle is I got a chance to drop by at “toys R us” and and bought this Optimus Prime- Premium Series for only US$39.99, why do I need to go to Seattle just only to have this? simple, it was way more cheaper there than in Vancouver. I really don’t know why it was so expensive here in Canada even though that Canadian dollar is more higher than US dollar now. Here in Canada this version of Optimus is worth Can$69.99, you see the big difference, I’m not kidding check it here (during posting the optimus version is sold-out but the same items categories in megatron same price is in the link) compare to US store.

Well 30 bucks is a big money, nice to save it and not be a victim of Canadian retailers. ūüôā Excuse us American friends if you see a lot of Canadian lining up crossing the border. This is only one of the reason.

My First Voltes V-Soul of Chogokin

Finally I own one of this, After 20 years of hoping and bugging my mom that one day I will be able to play one of this toy.

Voltes¬†V¬†is¬†really¬†a¬†phenomenon¬†cartoon¬†show¬†on¬†70’s¬†and¬†re-issue a couple of times on primetime show, I can say I’m the second generation of Voltes V fans, because on the first time it was air in the Philippines, I was just a baby, so defintely I’m not that old ūüôā

Well¬†anyway¬†enjoy¬†the¬†video¬†as¬†much¬†as¬†enjoy¬†my¬†toy,¬†also¬†by¬†watching¬†it¬†and¬†not by¬†playing¬†it¬†(maybe¬†sometimes,¬†I¬†try¬†to¬†bring¬†back¬†my¬†childhood¬†when¬†no¬†one¬†is¬†around)¬†beacuse it’s value and price which is so steep to say by now. This is already the latest version of Voltes V, which is release by Soul of Chogokin, The original is by Bandai Japan.

Here is a short stuff about Voltes V:

Voltes V, also known as Voltus V or Vultus V, is a classic anime, spans in 40 episodes, produced by Toei Animation, broadcasted in Japan by Asahi TV Station, every Saturday evening from 04. June 1977 to 25. March 1978.

Real Meantime Watch

This is my first attempt to do some Toy’s modding, following the Jim Saotome techniques. It was actually a simple Transformers-Decepticons Meantime with a non-working watch. So by the idea of Jin to transform it with a real watch and that’s what I did by mod it and putting a real working watch. So I decided to make a video of the tutorial though the written tutorial is already found in Jin Saotome site. Enjoy!
