Setting Fire (Works) in the Rain

Last weekend, after enjoying the Ghostbusters 2016 reboot movie (Pretty entertaining I must say, shame to the trailers for making it look bad) in the morning at a local cinema without my usual companion (He had to abandon the movie in favour of bringing his sick son to a doctor; Apparently after diagnosis later the day the little one got some throat infection), I’ve spent several hours back my den resting in preparation of the hectic evening ahead. 

Yes, it’s that time of the year again to visit the Bon Odori Matsuri held at the Esplanade on my island. =w=


Arriving a couple of hours earlier in order to avoid heavy traffic, I’ve instead paid a visit to a Theme Cafe located just close-by, as there’s an Anime Cosplay Gathering happened since the morning on the same day.

Never actually enter this Toys Café before since its opening years back, I’m extremely curious of what decorates the interior of this café, while showing up my face and mingle with the attendees of the gathering…


Going Apes in This Lunatic Season

The Goat went by, and the Monkey arrived to bring a prosperous new year ahead!

Once again, it’s the dawn of a new lunar year, the annual festive season bringing along lots of reds decorations, Mandarin oranges, God of Prosperity, lion dances, fireworks, Ang Pows (Red Packets), visiting relatives and friends that ask you the same question every year… Oh well you know the rest… :P


Even the Petit’gguys are in the mood to start their own celebrations of showering in golds and plum flowers… XDc


Figures @ AFA15

Posters and promotional items aside, the booths within the halls at Anime Festival Asia 2015 are fully packed with various figures of genre and sizes. 


Some cute, some sexy, some cool, some extraordinary. =w=


The Inner Mechanics of the Crimson Frame

The much-anticipated upcoming Real Grade, the ever elegant MBF-P02 Astray Red Frame, received a 3DCG PV introducing its fully pre-build and colour accurate inner frames in 1/144 scale, as well as boasting the overall aesthetic of the Gunpla itself.


By far the coolest PV of a Gunpla advert I’ve ever seen, aside from PG Unicorn Gundam’s.


The L.E.D. of the Unicorn

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”. ^^;
