Bic Buddy Artist Series 1 & more Unicorno

I was actually planning to get more Unicorno when I stumbled across BicPlastic's Bic Buddy artist series 1.
BicPlastic have recruited the talents of 13 artists within street art and design for their first Bic Buddy artist series of mini figurines.
What caught my eye was the side profile of this figure.
I love it.
I got my hands on Kano.
It looks cool and I think I may get more from this series.

Now to the Unicorno.
I reviewed 2 Unicornos, Pogo & Peperino, not too long ago.
I really like the design and went to get more Unicornos.
I managed to get Ritmo and Bellina.
I like Ritmo because of its mane. It is sculpted like dreadlocks as I think Ritmo is supposed to be a Reggae Unicorno...
I got Bellina mainly because my wife likes it and I like it when she shows some interest with my collection.

Hasbro Transformers Universe G1 Series Autobot Blaster

I love G1 Transformers design and I am happy that Hasbro and Takara are reissuing them.
The latest addition to my reissued G1 transformers is Autobot Blaster from the Hasbro Transformers Universe G1 Series.
When it was first launched, it was selling at S$100 but now you can get him at almost half the price. Sometimes patience has its virtue.

He is an Autobot who specializes in communications.
He is the Autobot communications officer and can transform into an AM/FM stereo cassette player!
Blaster frequently worked with Eject, Grandslam, Raindance, Ramhorn, Rewind and Steeljaw, the other members of the Autobot communication team.
Eject, Steeljaw and Ramhorn comes together with Blaster.

I like the packaging with its metallic sleeve and the nice yellow Autobot sign.
The box looks nice too with the picture of Blaster on it.

I just love the G1 designs as compared to the newer designs like from the movie series.
I guess the main reason why I love the designs is that they bring back happy childhood memories.
Blaster is one of the characters I have fond memories of, together with Soundwave.
Soundwave is the evil Decepticon answer to Blaster.

Transformation is a breeze as compared to the newer transformers.
I guess back in those days, toy engineering was not as advanced.
Also, the G1 transformers were meant for kids so the transforming had to be simple.
Nowadays, transformers are mainly bought by adult collectors who may like the challange of a harder transformation.

Overall, I will welcome any addition to my reissued G1 collection.
