Portraits of Toyz : Eve of Species

The beautiful Natasha Henstridge but in the form of Species, Eve.....

You definitely will not be able to see Natasha resemblance in this form and yet she is one hack of a seductress.

With a head that looks like Medusa, she does packs some serious nightmare for men out there to mate with her. You better watch out !

Produced by McFarlane back in 1998 and that is when I got seduced into serious toy collecting. 

Within close range, here she is.

What's the Catch? : Pacific Rim Jaeger & Kaiju Series II

From the Pacific Rim, they landed on my shores in a shockwave !!!

Neca has bring on the series 2 of the Pacific Rim with Battle Damaged Gypsy Danger, Striker Eureka and LeatherBack.

Impressive and detailed set. I just cannot give them a miss.

The Kaijua LeatherBack is a reincarnation of a Gorilla like creature and he is massive in weight and size.

For Gypsy Danger, I like this version of Battle-Damaged more than the first series and he comes with two saw blades.

Striker Eureka has received many good reviews but for me, his wear wash effect somehow makes him feel old and tired while adding to its color choice.

All these comments are just my views through looking them in the package. I think, they may differ when I release them from their enclosure.

Movies Screen : PACIFIC RIM

This movie has been off the silver screen for months now and the reason why I post it is that the toys are still gaining on the collectors. I think I should give some credits to this monster movie and give you another KAIJU time !

Cool giant robots and hideous monsters (Kaiju) with end of the world threat. What a typical story background but we never got sick of such fantasy. Putting these three elements together is like dropping an atomic bomb on the silver screen. Either you are overwhelm or you go cool...

The last time I saw a Japanese re-enactment of Kaiju into Hollywood blockbuster is Godzilla and now we have many many monsters that resembles of the Kaiju we saw in Japanese Ultraman.

For these Hollywood made Kaiju, they replicate after animals which we can easily relate to and they are awesome and beautiful from the screen.

The robots known as Jaeger remind me of a bigger version of Real Steel and still kicking fresh in my mind. They are piloted by humans and you need two to sustain and control a Jaeger. It is kind of a hazardous and dangerous job to do.

So what do you have to lose since you will be getting a movie with three awesome ingredients.

What's the Catch?: Pacific Rim KnifeHead (Kaiju)

Coming from the Pacific Rim, this is one the first Kaiju which I bought over and gotten on hand. I may have missed series one and replenish with KnifeHead which is not my priority but having to ship in series 2, makes it a good reason to pack in another Kaiju to join them.

Here is KnifeHead and he is a detail Kaijun by Neca standards, however, I find a little small and have also some issues seen over the many reviews in the web.

I can only size him up when I released him from this plastic enclosure which is keeping him well in captivity.

Portraits of Toyz : The American Hero

Wining numerous battles over ages, Captain America is back with a classic ride !

Movies Screen : The Hobbit - The Desolution of Smaug

December is round the corner as we speak and here is the anticipated movie trilogy from the Hobbits.

The Desolution of Smaug.

Somehow, the hobbits is not as enticing during the times of the Lord of the Rings, which can be explained through the popularity between the two novels.

Well, as a Lord of the Rings fans, you shall not miss this sequel of fantasy.

Before we got to see it on the silver screen, let us just devour the excitement from it's trailer.
