Collection Exposed : MASK - BullDog

Yet another long time Mask vehicle from my private collection.

Presenting BullDog, the diesel truck cum armored half-truck. Packed with twin grille guns, jagged tongue for slashing action, exhaust pipe blizzard masters and radar disruption missile.

The alternate mode does not look impressive to me but I like the truck mode. Setting it beside Rhino brings about strength.  Again. this truck has went through battles and need some maintenance.

Watch Movie : Jack the Giant Slayer

Jack the Giant Slayer, this may be my first movie in 2013.

Another movie from fairy tales, how many are we expecting to come.

An obvious adoption from our childhood fairytale story of Jack and the BeanStalk, where Jack climbs the beanstalk to the land of the giant to steal from him. Whatever follows, I guess you should know.

Well, over here in the movie adaptation, Jack becomes a Giant Slayer. You got to admit that nobody is interested in the old tale of Jack stealing the Hen that lays golden eggs and other stuff.

Also another remake from the Jack the Giant Killer in 1962.

But here is JACK the GIANT SLAYER !!!

Portraits of Toyz : Scorching Alien

Aliens. A very well-known creature in the movie.

Here he is, caught in the heat of the rising sun. Burning into the brightness.

Toy Viewing : Hell Boy - Tower Records

Hell Boy !!! The boy from hell.

There are quite a few versions of this hunk in big scale in the market but nothing beats this version created which commonly known as the Tower Records version.

Obviously a movie varied and towering at 18 inches with full grown horns. Fearsome piece.

Details are good and armed with his pistols and Cross. Also have his burnt and jacket. Complete with menace.

But one setback is his lack of articulations and his lightness in weight. He is those hollow big scale plastic figures and his trenchcoat is thin and paper-like (Cheap).

He has another version which is horn-less but you can miss that out. Get this full grown horns Hell boy if you can find him.

Portraits of Toyz : Freddy Krueger

Freddy was silent and unpredictable. Only bad dreams can draw him into the studio for a quick portrait and the experience is daunting.

Hulk Hogan, Honky Tonk Man, Ultimate Warrior, Sgt Slaughter.....the list goes on.

If you ever watch them in action in your days. You must be crazy over their stunts and made up shows.

Here are some figures produced by Hasbro back then and I just show them off in the limelight again.

What's the Catch?: Cybertronian Optimus Prime

Deluxe Class Cybertronian Prime. A not so simple to transform figure for it's size. Well worth to pick it up for the design and features put in. Coupled with amazingly head sciplt and the bulk on the robot mode is well proportioned.

If you ever see through the game, I think this is very close to it. Even if it is not, as a toy itself, it's cool.

I have not tear him out for some fun. Maybe after you !

Collection Exposed : Mask - Raven

Digging back in time, I will slowly reveal my small collections of Mask vehicles which I have collected since my childhood days when I was crazy over them.

Needless to introduce or explain their existence and innovations in the toy designs. Kenner has gave us a vehicle transformation which they are in heavy competition with the Transformer line back then.

One of my favorite vehicle will be the Raven. My very second Mask vehicle.

The black car that transform into a speed boat with disc missiles.

It can double up as Night Rider too. Now it is consider a classic car.

Collection Exposed : Egyptian Batman

A man of many gadgets and stunts. Batman has been to the Egyptian Era and he is still the cape crusader.

From the Legends of Batman, this set comprise of Egyptian Batman and Egyptian Catwoman. Both crafted by Kenner.

Figures from this era features basic and limited articulation compare to current standards but they are hardy and playable. Tough enough to sustain damages impact from serious fun.

He can only pull one stance. You just cannot force him.

To proclaim as an Egyptian style, he comes with an Egyptian headgear, a Bat logo staff and a removable cape. Wow!!! When you are in the 90's.

Something to note that he is not even 6 inch tall.

What's the Catch? : The Thing !!!

Now is the Chinese Lunar New Year month. Today is the 8th day, 7 days to 15th !!! This Snake year is from the Water element. And let us see what I got.

I got the Thing? Why is he the Thing? Maybe, there is no suitable name than Thing !!!

Got him as a Walmart Exclusive pack. All it came with is the extra piece of cloth wrap around him, a hat and a sunglass. But he does looks great with all these accessories packed in.

Since I only one to have my first and only Thing, I find this version from Toybiz Marvel Legends came top to me.

Simply realistically comical to own. Try It !

Toy Viewing : Jean Grey the Dark Phoenix

From the Marvel Legends produced by Hasbro, they gave us Jean Grey from the X-Men Movie.

She is on the evil mode as I would put it since her make up here is glowing with anger and bursting into flames. It is another variant of the original.

This figure is not very welcoming since her sculpt is on a not so-so side and not a beautiful Jean that you would expect. But looking it hard, she does have some beauty in it. Her hair sculpting and Victorian dress does well and with this version of pale and dark eye-shadow make-up, she can double up in the Twilight movie action figures.

Basically, her outlook and clothes are great enough though not fantastic face sculpt. And if you got her at a reasonable price, she is one considerable figure to pick it up.

Toy Viewing : She-Hulk

 Who ever wanted a She-Hulk as a girlfriend?

But no fear as she can be yours in this form.

Here is a version from Hasbro, which I think she is just fine compares to the rest of the figures in the line. Nice curves and costume with some gentleness.
