Paper Toys OTTi

Little Plastic Man & OpentheToy present OTTi (first announced on 18th Aug 2009). OTTi is the mascot for OpentheToy.
This is my 2nd collaboration with a fellow toy blogger. My first was with Armand from The Pop Culture Junkie! I do hope that I have more chances to collaborate with more fellow toy bloggers in the future. Do drop me a comment if you are interested!
I usually do not have templates to download but I hope to start soon.

OTTi appearing on Little Plastic Man Magazine!

OTTi & The Pop Culture Junkie...I do hope to have a toy

HBO Miniseries - The Pacific

Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Gary Goetzman present HBO's new ten-hour miniseries, The Pacific.
It tells the intertwined stories of three Marines, Robert Leckie (played by James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda), during America’s battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II.
From the creators of Band of Brothers, I have high hopes for this one. I can't wait! It will premiere in 2010.

Check out the trailer here!

Little Plastic Man & Open the Toy are collaborating to produce a paper figure of OTTi (mascot of Open the Toy). Both Little Plastic Man & Open the Toy felt that the time was right for the collaboration and such a collaboration will bring about great synergy.
Copyright issues were discussed and settled just yesterday and production of the figure is underway. Expected delivery end of Aug 2009.

You heard it here first!!

Hasbro The Rise Of Cobra 12” Baroness (San Diego Comic Con Exclusive)

Truth be told, I did not know that Hasbro released a San Diego Comic Con exclusive 12” Baroness from The Rise of Cobra movie.
So you can imagine my surprise when I saw it at the Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention 2009! Hasbro was selling most of their San Diego Comic Con exclusive toys at the convention.

What actually caught my eye was the packaging. The Baroness comes in a very nice box which has a look and feel of black leather. At the front and back of the box you have the Cobra logo in shiny crimson red! How cool is that.
The box is packaged in another box made of cardboard. The front and back of the box has holes so that the Cobra logo can be seen. The front of the box is black while the back is white with a short description of the Baroness!
Since the packaging is so beautiful, this Baroness will stay Mint in Box. Good thing that the box can be opened like a book so you can still admire the Baroness in full plastic glory!

Description of the Baroness

Since I am not taking her out of her packaging, I will describe the sculpt as best I can.
We have all seen the horror of Hasbro's 12" figures from the movie but don't worry, this 12" Baroness is branded as an adult collectible so a certain standard is expected. Ok it is not at Hot Toys or Enterbay's level but so is the price. I think it stands well with the other 12" figures from other companies. If you look hard enough, you can see the resemblance of Sienna Miller, the actress who played the Baroness. The hair for the Baroness is 1 moulded piece and I think it works for this figure.

She comes with her leather trench coat and it looks pretty well done. It also fits her nicely.
The accessories for this figure are 2 metal "ray guns" which are sculpted very well, an assault gun and glasses.

At the San Diego Comic Con, she is going at US$29.90 but here she is priced at S$79.90 (you do the maths). The tragedy of living at the other end of the world in Sunny Singapore.

Overall, I love the packaging and the figure is not bad. Come on it is the Baroness! I had to have her!...LOL

Lovely packaging
