adventure time!

i see them every convention but i always wondered where their main store was. at last after some careful snooping i uncovered the place. sadly the owner was out so i couldn't get to check and buy the stuff i wanted. i got their store number though so i'll be by there again this week.

oh lord, it's weeaboo heaven!

the room. how i wanted to move in.


abandoned gasha machines. i want some :<

bins. nothing interesting (to me) though.

i think i see some mini 4wd circuit tracks there.


some soundtrack records.




ohohohoho yes.


I actually wanted to get this...

well though my visit was fruitless, at least i know where the place is located now. yeah!

had my lunch at the Penut Butter Company place in SM North:


ordered the roast beef sandwich (which had some penut butter inside. heh) twas' good but what i enjoyed most was a beverage i haven't had since High School:

it was a good saturday lunch out. yes.

kitty cat kitty cat

so after a while of thinking about it i finally went and did it:

Last Night

This Afternoon.

almost done now, just need to make the ankles on the rear legs. it turned out nicer than i thought it would. totally not sure about adding a new neck joint though. 

credit goes to Wheeljack of Sector70 for inspiring this little piece.

i am seriously impressed by this figure from the Spider-Man 3-inch line from hasbro:

as a kid who grew up reading the clone saga and Spiderclone Ben Reily's stint as the webslinger, i got nothing but love for this costume, and as of now it's the only spiderman i have in my marvel collection :)

of course articulation and poseability is still shit, but i nostalgia'd hard. and it has articulation where it counts at least.

I can't live with this kind of thinking i go through everyday. i've cried a
lot more times this week than i can remember for reasons 
only a fool would think twice about. sometimes i just need to
vent it all out. there are tough situations i'm afraid to face, people i yearn to talk to 
ease my worries.

yet, it seems that all i'm doing is nothing more than a wasted exercise, tears shed.
outright breaking down, but when i get back to myself, to look
up, and pretend to be fine, i start to believe that i am.

making myself believe it, that there are things i can do without in this life, 
at least, not for now. but there's no hiding the truth to myself.
I. lack. courage.and perhaps it's something i will look for.

robot rock

a little daft punk to motivate me (robot rock), and an hour's worth of ink and coloring :)

another two-fer for you folks tonight,  here's a review of the Iron Man 2 Comic Series Silver Centurion and Iron Monger figures.

first off let's look at the big bad of this wave, the Comic Series Iron Monger:

let me say this could be the heaviest piece of 3-inch plastic i've held yet, absolutely heavy piece and freaky huge too.

despite being a retool of the Hulkbuster in the earlier waves he outdoes the original mold in so many ways.

aside from the aforementioned size of this thing he also makes better use of the mold in terms of articulation. the joints are more exposed to wider movement and not tightened.

 he can pull off some mean body-flexing

and his mold is convincingly comic accurate in look, as well as feel. he's just one metal hulking behemoth.
paintwise he's already molded in his final colors and the splattered inkwash really gives him a good amount of "evil" as well as brings out his fantastic mold details.

next up is the Silver Centurion:

while not having many eye-catching details as the Monger, this one sports a classic, sleek look. recent exposure as an unlockable armor in most new iron Man games made this figure instantly recognizable offhand. 
immediately noticeable is his use of 80% of the Neo-Classic armor from an earlier wave, though in this case it's very fitting. what takes that realization away is how sharp the new parts on him are. from the shoulder and collar armor,

to his backpack, the remold use is excusable and very effective in my opinion.  and like the monger, he can pull some good poses better than the original mold as well

what i definitely like about him is his face. while minimal details are common in the early armors( eye and mouth slits) this one has raised brows and a scowl which gives this figure more of a dramatic personality.

(as it should be, seeing as his debut was the culmination of a tragic story-arc in the life of tony stark, this armor had more human quality)

paintwise, i think he's one of the more well-done figures, as many of his make have little to no sloppy detailing at all, and the silver is simply so very shiny and clean.

he comes with his blast effect,

and both figures have stands and armor cards.

overall, in regards to the Iron Monger:
big bulk with a decent range of movement and an intimidating aesthetic, definitely a figure to get for your armory. and the plastic is well worth the money. a 9 out of 10.

and the Silver Centurion:
a bit underrated as a retail figure, though a hidden Gem once you get to play with him he's a fun figure to pose with as well as the perfect partner to your Iron Monger, and probably the cleanest, sleekest figure to be done yet in the line, he's a good 8 out of 10.

till next time, fans!
