Dance in the Fire (Works)

Departing a couple of hours before the official initiation of the Bon Odori Matsuri last weekend in order to secure a good parking spot for my ride, I’ve reached the site already full of early birds scattered all around the venue.

Various erected canopies await the visiting throng for the evening!

Also held within the same area is the Transformers Street Art event (Of which you may see some Autobot/Decepticon logos and/or Bumblebee/Optimus Prime statues cameo in the following photos), which I’ll cover in my next post…

Animating an Online Phantasy

After half a year’s worth of patient waiting, the much-anticipated L.E.D. Unit finally made its landfall.

Originally supposed to be collected together with the Perfect Grade back in January, the L.E.D. Unit was a no-show due to cut-stock from the source, had no choice but to wait for the eventual restocking back in late May.

Packaged in a rather extravagant box, the exterior art featured an image of Unicorn Gundam’s Psycho Frame emitting its reddish pink particles in the dark, as well as a single image of the L.E.D. glowing.

The whole box itself covers in a type of chrome foil material, making the whole thing feels more reflective and kinda more… “expensive”. ^^;
