Hot Toys The Dark Knight Rises - DX12 1/6 Batman

The DX line are known to be the top of the line collectables from Hot Toys. It's exclusive and it's expensive, and I manage to own one.

"The Batman/ Bruce Wayne collectible is newly developed and highly detailed, specially crafted based on the image of Christian Bale as the iconic character Batman/ Bruce Wayne, highlighting the movie-accurate head sculpt, Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) on Batman's head, specially made fabric costume with armor based on the costume design in the movie, weapons and accessories." - Hot Toys.

I've missed the chance to get DX02, 1/6 Batman from The Dark Knight movie, when it was released a year back and I've been mournful ever since. Luckily an opportunity presents itself when Hot Toys obtain the rights for The Dark Knight Rises movie and produce a 1/6th scale Batman once again.

It's heavy.
Second tray consist of custom base, user guide, PERS adjuster, crotch holder/stand and cape. 

Love the PERSystem.

Alas, the EMP gun doesn't light up that well.

The other utility belt that holds the sticky bomb gun via magnets.

An update to Christian Bale's head sculpt which looks even more movie accurate.

Those who collects Hot Toys figure knows the amount of detail that have been put into their toy line and this is no exception. This is by far the nearest representation of an iconic character from an iconic movie done in a miniature scale.
Personally, the price point for this fine collectable is pretty steep. Yes the quality and the detail of the figure is the best there is, but the quantity of the collectables doesn't feels like it would make up for the higher price.

Next, DX11. Hi,hi,hi,hi,hi,hi,hi,hi!!

Flightpose Display Stand

Flightpose is an acrylic display stand consisting 3 acrylic rods and base. Rubber bumpers at each end of the rods grips the vehicles & prevents scuffing.

It comes in 2.5", 4" and 6" long rods, and what I bought is the 4".
If you have all the sizes, you can combine them to pose even figures.

Its been long since I've wrote/upload something in this so called blog. A lot of goodies have been acquired through out this year, played with and stored/displayed. What I didn't have is time & place to do the photoshoot.

So I thought I have to post something because, well frankly speaking, I missed posting the blog.

Here's a few diecast miniature cars which I thought is cool. I know those out there would look at these & thought "This guy just got them?", but its still a good find.

Pics after jump.

Harry Posto! : The Complete 1-8 Film Collection - Limited Numbered Edition

Harry Potter : The Complete 1-8 Film Collection - Limited Numbered Edition.

Its been a while since I've updated the blog, and I've got a few toys & blu-rays which I didn't have time to photograph properly for the blog.
This entry however, imho, must be posted.

The boxset contains 19 disc, blu-ray & dvd, along with a photobook much like Harry's photo album which he received from Hagrid in year 1.

Halo Encyclopedia: Revised & Updated

I've played the 1st Halo on PC & I loved it. However, I missed out the rest of the other series due to not having an XBox.
I love the design and the story of Halo but I could never get to play the game.
Then I saw the encyclopedia and thought I should get it, especially when Dorling Kindersley revise the encyclopedia with information on Halo : Reach.

Hot Wheels Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera - White

Adding to the Gallardo Superleggera line (link) is the white colour LP 570-4 Superleggera.

Pity the tail lights are unpainted.
Now, where's my red marker.....

Hot Wheels 2011 - Early October Haul

Its been a while since I posted anything Hot Wheels. I guess it might be due to the lack of wanted cars on the pegs which resulted in me less hunting.
Anyway, this here seems to be me lucky day.
Got this at a local hypermarket. Can't/Don't remember which wave, but I believe its the Coronet Super Bee wave.

 Finally got the new Mini & Ken Block's Focus. Not to mention the Skyline R32 & the Civic.

Square Enix Play Arts 'Kai' Halo - Master Chief

Envisioned by Square Enix Product.

I honestly doesn't know which line or series this is, but I believe it is one of many.
Please correct me otherwise.
This here is Master Chief, the one from Halo. Those who has an Xbox 360 would know him. Those who play video games would also know of him.
The Halo action figure were made mostly by McFarlanes. Now Squere Enix comes out with its Halo line starting with the Halo : Reach series. It has a few flaws in terms of loose joints in some areas. This time, they manage to rectify those problems with a tighten, but not too loose, rachet joints which manage to give the figure a few awesome pose.

The packaging is different than the other Play Art lineup. It has a flip out lid.

To commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Halo.


The M6D pistol.
MA5B standard issue assault rifle.
Do you feel lucky, punk?

Wait for it...... dance!
I was so excited when I found out Play Arts will be making him. It doesn't dissapoint.
Most of the flaws were rectify from the previous Halo line & much more. The colour looks more like an amour. The rachet joints feels tight & responsive.
The packaging is another plus. Me likey.
However, the feet looks a little too small though. And since the top is heavy it can topple over easily. So you have to find that sweet spot when posing it. Not a biggie.
