Paper Toys Emperor's Royal Guard

Elegant and deadly, these are the hallmarks of the crimson-clad Royal Guard that is sworn to protect the Emperor at all costs.
What I love about the royal guards are the flowing red robes and the sleek, featureless scarlet mask which obscures their faces.
In paper, I bring to you the Emperor's Royal Guard.

SideShow Firefly

Yeah! Another GI Joe from Sideshow. This time we get Firefly.
This is a really interesting interpretation of Firefly by Sideshow and I think this design will grow on you. It has elements of the original design from the 80's toyline yet updated to look relevant today.

There is an exclusive version which includes an extra accessory, the I.E.D. (Improvised Explosive Device). Well I can live without that.

You can read my review on Sideshow Snake Eyes here.

Too early to update the banner this time!

It is only Nov and I have already updated my Liverpool trophies banner twice. If our form continues like this, I will most probably be crossing out the other two trophies pretty soon. the early morning of Wednesday, Liverpool crashes out of the Champions League, a competition in which we were pretty dominant in the past seasons. Now we have to contest for the UEFA cup. (and I am not going to add that into my banner!)
I did however noticed something...since SingTel won the exclusive rights to show Champions League matches from StarHub, Liverpool crashes out from the competition! I shudder to think of next season when SingTel will have the exclusive rights to the BPL...will Liverpool be relegated...(touch wood!)...
The future looks bleak but You Will Never Walk Alone.

What a lovely day

Went down to CSC with the family today just to "see, see"...however ended up buying a few big ticket items. You know it is going to be a lovely day when you have to go down to the ATM machine twice to withdraw money to pay for your purchases...LOL.

My Toy Haul:
1) Mattel 12" Ghostbusters Ray Stantz
2) DX Joker
3) Soldier Story US 2nd Ranger "Naked" body.

Will not be opening up most of my new purchases as I will be moving house in Feb 2010. I will keep them nice and snug in their packaging for easier transportation.
I did however take a peak at the DX Joker and boy was I blown away! Too bad I can't take him out to review but you can read the review at Alex's Toy Haven.

It was a great day but it seems that my ATM card did not enjoy seems to have comatose (it will feel much better tomorrow)! Too much withdrawal in a day!...LOL

My ATM card resting for a full recovery!

Paper Toys He-Man & Skeletor

He-Man was the most powerful man in the universe! Together with the rest of the Masters of the Universe, they ruled the fantasy and imagination of every boy in the 80's.
He-Man & the Masters of the Universe were a very big part of my childhood and I can still remember getting a MOTU figure at the end of the month when my dad got his pay. Weekend was always with my cousins playing He-Man.
Since they were such iconic symbols of the 80's, I had to do paper toys out of them. Hence I give you He-Man and his great nemisis, Skeletor!

Only designer chairs for my 12" figures

Spotted some "cool designer chairs" in a shop called u2me at Plaza Singapura. At first glance, I knew it was in the same scale as the 12" figures so I bought them in case my 12" figures needed some chairs to sit on...LOL.
The chairs fit 12" figures pretty well so it will work well as props for 12" diorama. I guess they were meant to be Ipod or hand phones holders and they come in a variety of colors too.
On a separate note, I do recommend going down to the shop as it does sell pretty cool stuff, like space invaders ice tray & cool porcelain mugs made to look like crushed paper cups and white paper cups you get at your Starbucks and Coffee Bean (just to name a few). It does make cool Christmas presents.

Now to have some fun with my new chairs
