「Condor Eject; Operation: Surveillance」

Continuing from the initial look at the Transformers Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave, this time let’s have a look at its signature Cassetticon minion, Condor aka Laserbeak…

In comparison here are Condor in its Cassette mode, sized at about 1/2 of the device it is based upon and closely resembles that of the Micro Cassette.

「Autobots Inferior, Soundwave Superior」

Transformers. More than meets the eyes. Transformers. Robots in Disguise.

Ever since the 80′s, kids and adults alike have been awed by the notion of your everyday household items and belongings that can convert into robot and back. Animated series and movies are watched, source materials are gathered, toys and figures are collected, it’s been a dream for all those fascinated by the Transformers.

Finally got this gem earlier this month after missing the 1st release earlier this year due to indecisiveness, I’ve immediately placed a pre-order the moment a 2nd release was announced some Moons back.

Good thing I’ve decided against getting this Transformers Masterpiece on auction sites and evilBay as immoral scalpers had inflated the value of the 1st release. Even checking the price now reveals that most of the listed still on the more expensive side, save for a few that sells at its original base…

III-rd Party of Moe

A local ACG event was held during the last weekend, spanning across the 25th and 26th of May. ^_^ 

Dubbed the Moe-Party Cosplay Workshop III, it’s a small workshop event or something, at least according to my own pal for many years, Donny Choo-san!

Incidentally, it was he who had invited me over as I wasn’t aware of the event itself. The surprise when I was told of it dat time! 0_0

Anyway due to strict schedule I was only be able to attend Day 02 of the event, missing all the on-stage fun on Day 01…

Till All Are One with the Dark Side

After surviving the bombardments of comrade mGlacius and Crimotaku‘s joint military exercise, I’ve finally surrendered my will and grabbed myself the one true holy crown of my childhood yume, a Transformers Masterpiece Convoy (Optimus Prime to the West) Black ver. by Takara Tomy!

MP Convoy Black is actually a limited release of the very same mould used on the 1st MP Convoy (In its original red-blue colour scheme) from half a decade ago, with the Japanese version bundled with an e-Hobby exclusive comic book while the Hong Kong version bundled with a die-cast name plate…

The one I got is actually from eBay with a fraction of its original price sans any of the extras mentioned… Quite a bargain I say as it only costs me about 7,991 (LOL The number of my previous car licence plate… Coincidence? ^^;) yen including shipping as contrast to its original price which is about 12,000 yen!!! :Dc


Obligatory box shots… The first thing I noticed when I pick up this beast is the very heaviness of the danbooru! Didn’t expect it to be this solid in weight! ^^;

The front side features Convoy Black as the centre attraction (Obviously!) with his vehicle mode by his calves in a simple design while the back is littered with various information and features you can expect from those standard figurine packaging design…




A smaller image of Convoy Black and warning labels, legal stuffs and such are printed on the top and bottom portion of the danbooru respectively…
