Transformers Animated-Latest Release from Hasbro

Today, before going home from work I decided to drop by at Toys R Us, Metrotown and I got a chance to grab one of this latest series in the Transformers action figures. Now it was animated looking figures, base on the Cartoon Networks Transformers animated TV series. The Transformers Animated series figures comes in 8 different models.

Hasbro release another Transformers Action Figure Scale but with the characters and styling of Transformers: Animated. For the first time, character conversion in the toy mirrors how they change in the TV show providing a seamless connection between toy and entertainment.

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 🙂 . 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. 🙂 Excuse us American friends if you see a lot of Canadian lining up crossing the border. This is only one of the reason.
