Alert Line 1/6th WWII Royal Air Force Fighter Pilot 12-inch figure aka Tom Hardy in Dunkirk

Dunkirk is a 2017 war film written, directed, and co-produced by Christopher Nolan that depicts the Dunkirk evacuation of World War II. Dunkirk portrays the evacuation from three perspectives: land, sea, and air. It has little dialogue, as Nolan sought instead to create suspense from cinematography and music. It is the highest-grossing World War II film of all time, taking $525 million worldwide. Dunkirk received praise for its screenplay, direction, musical score, and cinematography; some critics called it Nolan's best work, and one of the greatest ever war films.

Tom Hardy portrays Farrier, a Royal Air Force Spitfire pilot who assumes command after their leader is shot down. The remaining two aircraft then save a minesweeper from a German bomber, but the other Spitfire is hit and ditches. Its pilot, Collins, is rescued by Moonstone. Farrier reaches Dunkirk, his fuel exhausted. Gliding over the beach, he shoots down a dive-bomber.

Check out Calvin's Custom x Gate Toys 1/6 scale MOTOPSYCLE: mGT (mobile Gun Tower), BORGHEAD & GUNRUNNER on Kickstarter

Original design 1/6 combat motorcycle, advanced ballistic weapons and cyborg headsculpt by Calvin's Custom, a GATE TOYS Production. Available on Kickstarter (link HERE)

About Calvin:
Throughout 17 years of customizing, amongst many weapon mod, angel and cyborg designs, I have never stopped customizing bikes. In 2016, I created four bikes - two post-apocalyptic Mad Max style, one inspired by the Bat-Pod in The Dark Knight and one inspired by the Moto-Terminator in Terminator 4.

Following the ‘heroes/heroines and their steeds’ tradition - Zorro with Tornado, Ghostrider with Hell Cycle, Wonder Woman with Pegasus, and Barb Wire with her Harley Davidson - I believe a two-wheeled vehicle helps enhance a character's presence and amplify the valor, menace or evilness that the character embodies.

Feedback from collectors and friends reinforced that my creation deserves a name of its own. To me, being a customizer has always been a form of madness, one that involves tearing things apart, constantly aiming for the ‘what-has-never been done’, in ways that ‘have never-been-tempted’. In this spirit, I’ve named this project MOTOPSYCLE: mGT - a weapon of mass destruction on two wheels, the Gran Turismo of war.


MOTOPSYCLE: mGT (mobile Gun Tower)
Specifications: The 1/6 scale MOTOPSYCLE: mGT weights around 1.7kg, is approximately 40cm long, and 20cm tall and wide. It's comprised mostly of different grades of plastic with some alloy parts. Both the eyes of the cyborg skull headlight and the nuclear powered tank on top glow with LED lights powered by lithium battery.

MOTOPSYCLE: mGT (Black Version - shown in above pic) with Weapon System 01, 355USD/set, 30 sets only worldwide

MOTOPSYCLE: mGT (Military Version 1 "Tan" - pic below) with Weapon System 01 405USD/ set, 30 sets only worldwide

Star Ace Toys 1/6th scale Audrey Hepburn as “Holly Golightly” 12-inch collectible figure

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a 1961 American romantic comedy film directed by Blake Edwards and written by George Axelrod, loosely based on Truman Capote's novella of the same name. Starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, and featuring Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, and Mickey Rooney, the film was initially released on October 5, 1961 by Paramount Pictures.

Hepburn's portrayal of Holly Golightly as the naïve, eccentric socialite is generally considered to be the actress's most memorable and identifiable role. Hepburn regarded it as one of her most challenging roles, since she was an introvert required to play an extrovert.


Star Ace Toys 1/6th scale Audrey Hepburn as “Holly Golightly” collectible figure features: Fully realized authentic likeness of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with accurate facial expression, sculpted hair and detailed skin texture with partial seamless body | 1/6th scale partial seamless body, approximately 29 cm tall with 30 points of articulation | Six (6) interchangeable hands including: pair of open palms, pair of closed palms, left hand for cigarette holder, right hand for handbag

Review II: Hot Toys ALIEN 1/6th scale Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley 12-inch Collectible Figure

continued from previous toy blog post...

I believe Hot Toys founder Howard Chan has an affinity for films from the past. What I mean is that he is still very sentimental and attached to some of the older but popular movies from the 20th Century like Terminator, RoboCop, Back to the Future, The Matrix and the Alien franchise, or else why would he want to get the license to produce figures from an older era when he could easily release newer figures based on the movies that are current and popular now.

When Hot Toys first started producing and releasing their Movie Masterpiece Series (MMS line) back in 2000, the first seven figures released were Kyle Reese and a damaged Terminator from the 1984 Terminator film, followed by three United States Colonial Marine Corps figures (Hicks, Apone and Vasquez) from 1986 Aliens AND John Rambo plus Colonel Trautman from 1985 First Blood II - you can check out the full listing from MMS001 to MMS140 on my blog post HERE.


And after more than 15 years, Hot Toys announced in May 2016 that they would be releasing a Ellen Ripley figure from the 1979 Alien film which arrived more than a year later in November 2017 (as part of my haul, posted HERE). This is my second part action figure review of Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS366 ALIEN 1/6th scale Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley 12-inch Collectible Figure. Ripley comes with a custom flamethrower, frightened version of Jonesy the cat which can be carried in a specially crafted cat carrier box, tracking device, and Alien themed diorama figure stand with Ripley nameplate.

Kotobukiya Tokyo Comic Con 2017 Previews - Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, Resident Evil Leon

To kick off Tokyo Comic Con 2017 Kotobukiya has been posting a number of exclusive product previews: they include Batman - Gotham by Gaslight ARTFX+ Statue, Resident Evil Vendetta Leon S. Kennedy ARTFX Statue, Resident Evil Vendetta Chris Redfield ARTFX Statue, Captain Marvel Bishoujo Statue, and Red Hood Ikemen Statue.


What caught my eye is the Tokyo Comic Con 2017 Preview: Batman - Gotham by Gaslight ARTFX+ Statue. Gotham by Gaslight is a DC Comics one-shot by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, with inks by P. Craig Russell. Gotham by Gaslight is considered to be the first Elseworlds story, where DC Comics heroes are taken out of their usual setting and put into alternate timelines or realities. As a big fan of Mike Mignola's art style, I collected comic books with his art in them. The subject matter was quite wide ranging: there's an Alien Xenomorph story, Wolverine, Superman etc. Batman has more than one story drawn by Mignola.

Toys Works 1/6th scale Saber Master fencing master aka Mace Windu Jedi Master 12" figure

A grim Jedi Master with an amethyst-bladed lightsaber, Mace Windu was the champion of the Jedi Order, with little tolerance for the failings of the Senate, the arguments of politicians, or the opinions of rebellious Jedi. As the Clone Wars intensified, Mace sensed the dark side of the Force at work, and knew the Jedi's enemies were plotting to destroy the Order and end its stewardship of the galaxy.

Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films and voiced by voice-actor Terrence C. Carson in other projects. He appears as Master of the Jedi High Council and one of the last members of the order's upper echelons before the Galactic Republic's fall. He is the Council's primary liaison, although the Clone Wars caused him to question his most firmly held beliefs.


Toys Works Tw005 1/6th scale Saber Master fencing master aka Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu Jedi Master features: highly detailed Head sculpt, 1/6 Scale figure body, Hands x 8 piece, battery powered Lightsaber, Lightsaber Hilt.

Hot Toys MMS366 ALIEN 1/6th scale Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley Collectible Figure Review

This was part of my November 2017 haul (posted on my toy blog HERE)

This Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS366 ALIEN 1/6th scale Ellen Ripley Collectible Figure was supposed to be released Q4 2016 - Q1 2017 but didn't arrive in Singapore until November 2017 which is Q4 2017 which makes it almost a year late. Quite a number of Hot Toys figures have a habit of arriving later than estimated recently, so much so I don't really bother with the projections anymore but just wait for them to turn up. I got my Hot Toys 12-inch Punisher figure even before Daredevil and Daredevil has already been released in many other countries. For the Hot Toys Punisher action figure review, you can check out the posts on my toy blog HERE, HERE and HERE.

Alien is a 1979 science-fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott, and starring Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto. In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma. And the rest, as they say, is history.


Sigourney Weaver portrayed Ripley, the warrant officer aboard the Nostromo. The role of Ripley was Weaver's first leading role in a motion picture, and earned her nominations for a Saturn Award for Best Actress and a BAFTA award for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Role. The producers wanted the Nostromo's crew to resemble working astronauts in a realistic environment, a concept summarised as "truckers in space". According to Ridley Scott, this concept was inspired partly by Star Wars, which deviated from the pristine future often depicted in science fiction films of the time.

TB League 1/6th scale Majestic Crusader 12-inch Female Action Figure - History be damned LOL

The Crusades were a series of religious wars sanctioned by the Latin Church in the medieval period. The most commonly known Crusades are the campaigns in the Eastern Mediterranean aimed at recovering the Holy Land from Islamic rule but the term "Crusades" is also applied to other church-sanctioned campaigns. These were fought for a variety of reasons including the suppression of paganism and heresy, the resolution of conflict among rival Roman Catholic groups, or for political and territorial advantage. At the time of the early Crusades the word did not exist, only becoming the leading descriptive term around 1760.

In the modern age, many liberties are taken. Because of political correctness and its sensitivity towards society, everyone has to thread carefully, watch their tongues and choose their words wisely for fear of offending any particular group of people. History has been tweaked and rewritten for the movies we watch because the films have to cater to every gender and race. For instance, the African Americans did not fight alongside their white American brothers in World War II but had their own Black units. However, in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Steve Rogers fights alongside both black and white American troops. Of course, it's all fiction since there were no superheroes in WWII either. In the film U-571, the Americans are the ones who capture a German Enigma machine in the spring of 1942. In reality, the Enigma was broken at Bletchley Park on 1 June 1941. The British had gotten their hands on an Enigma one year earlier. Now, with some wild imagination, we can have females fighting the Crusades. With long flowing hair even! Hahaha Fantasy Females are certainly the rage at the moment.


TB League PL2017-108 1/6th scale Majestic Crusader Female Action Figure features: head sculpt, TBLeague female seamless body with metal armature, close-fitting one-piece suit, 7 x interchangeable hands, neck armor, shoulder armor, elbow armor, forearm armor, breast armor, abdomen armor, knee high boots, belt, helmet, cape, sword, shield, axe, flag post & flag. The base is not included in the product set.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes -- Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash -- it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1939, Bruce Wayne is a billionaire businessman, playboy and philanthropist. After witnessing the murder of his parents as a child, he traveled the world, trying to understand the criminal mind. He trained in all kinds of martial arts and combat techniques, seeking physical and intellectual perfection. He created a uniform based on something that frightened him as a child: Bats.

Dam Toys DMS004 Legendary Inventor ©2017 Sidney Maurer Homage Artwork of Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs seem to get a lot more attention than Bill Gates. Even now, toy and action figure companies are still wanting to make 12-inch figures of Steve Jobs and no one cares for a 1/6th scale Bill Gates. Wonder Why? Lately, famous people other than actors are getting their fair share of the attention by 1/6th scale manufacturers. There's already a 12-inch figure of H.R. Giger (see the post on my toy blog HERE), Stan Lee by Hot Toys (pics HERE) and even directors George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are not spared. Lucas pics HERE and HERE with Spielberg pics HERE.


Dam Toys DMS004 Legendary Inventor ©2017 Sidney Maurer Homage Artwork of Steve Jobs 12-inch figure features: 1/6th scale Highly detailed head sculpt, DAM male action body, Six (6) pieces of interchangeable hands including: pair of open hands, pair of relaxed hands A, pair of relaxed hands B

Aerospace engineer spends $70,000 on home fit for superheroes with $4,000 S.H.I.E.L.D logo

When he watched Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman 37 years ago, she became the first superhero he fell in love with.

Last year, Mr Jason Koh, 47, spent $70,000 renovating his five-room flat in Punggol into a superhero-themed flat. It even has a $4,000 S.H.I.E.L.D logo that is 2.4m high.It was so big that it had to be carried 12 storeys up to his home as it could not fit into the lift. A superhero fan since he was 10, Mr Koh decided on a superhero theme when he wanted to renovate his flat after renting it out for three years while working overseas.

The aerospace engineer had initially considered a Manchester United theme. Said Mr Koh: "I thought a flat based on one football club might be boring. And I have many friends who are superhero fans."


The flat features Marvel Comics and DC Comics superhero figurines, wallpapers and home decor items, such as bedsheets, cushions, a carpet and a clock. Displayed in a floor-to-ceiling cabinet in the living room are 21 superhero figurines bought for $7,000 from Hong Kong toy manufacturer Hot Toys. They include Batman, Superman, the Hulk, Thor and Black Widow.

Mr Koh also used a 3D printer to print unit-number plaques with the S.H.I.E.L.D logo. Said Mr Koh: "I am not young any more, so I want to spend my money on something that makes me happy."

He is not alone in splurging on his passion.

Hot Toys 1/6th scale Jon Bernthal The Punisher action figure and his cache / arsenal of weapons

continued from previous toy blog post...

What's the Punisher without his armory?

Hot Toys TMS004 Marvel's Daredevil 1/6th scale Jon Bernthal as Punisher 12-inch Collectible Figure comes with a Barrett MRAD (Multi-Role Adaptive Design) rifle, Smith & Wesson Model 327 Performance Center TRR8, GE M134 mini-gun and Ka-Bar knife. And not much else. For a vigilante who wages a one-man war on the mob and all criminals in general by using all manner of conventional war weaponry, what Hot Toys has given the Punisher seems insufficient and inadequate.


So I thought I'll add some more weapons to the Punisher's armory. On the table are the Hot Toys Barrett MRAD (Multi-Role Adaptive Design) rifle with folding stock, removable magazine, detachable sniper scope and the mith & Wesson Model 327 Performance Center TRR8 but around him are other weapons added for effect. On the floor in front of him is a M2 Browning .50 Caliber Machine Gun. Next to it is the GE M134 mini-gun, 4-barreled rocket launcher - M202A1 FLASH, Valmet M78/83 with a synthetic thumbhole "Dragunov Style" stock and removable magazine, Remington 870 shotgun with a specialized under-barrel laser sight, Heckler & Koch G36, and AR15 carbine with reflex sight, suppressor, grenade launcher. On the 1/6th scale mannequin is a tactical vest with shotgun shells, three M67 hand grenades, two M18A1 Claymore anti-personnel mines in bags, binoculars and a Uzi submachine gun with extendable stock and removable magazine. Most are courtesy of Hot Toys MMS276 1/6th scale Arnold Schwarzenegger as John Matrix 12-inch figure from the 1985 American action thriller film "Commando". The full action figure review can be found on my toy blog HERE and HERE. This goes to show that Hot Toys can be very generous with the accessories when they want to.

Review II: Hot Toys Marvel's Daredevil 1/6th scale Jon Bernthal as Punisher Collectible Figure

continued from previous toy blog post...

In Marvel's Daredevil, a Netflix Original Series, war hero Frank Castle’s life was changed forever when his family was brutally murdered before his eyes. Taking matters into his own hands, Frank decides to avenge his family’s death by eliminating all those responsible. Lethal with his methods, Frank becomes a notorious vigilante in the criminal underworld earning the moniker – The Punisher.


This is my second-part review of this recently released Hot Toys TMS004 Marvel's Daredevil 1/6th scale Jon Bernthal as Punisher 12-inch Collectible Figure which was part of my November haul (posted earlier HERE). In this post, I've removed his black leather-like coat which tends to restrict his movement as the coat fits very snugly. Also without the coat, you can see better the nice details found on the Punisher's bullet-proof vest with his signature skull motif.

Also like I mentioned in my earlier post, the Hot Toys body type used for this Punisher figure is not the best choice as far as the arms are concerned. The elbows are not double-jointed but uses a rotating hinge instead. This greatly restricts the articulation in the arms as you cannot close the gap between forearm and biceps. In the case of Hot Toys "G.I. Joe Retaliation" 1/6th scale Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock 12-inch tall Collectible Figure, the double-jointed elbows were used - see my review posted HERE, HERE and HERE. It didn't work for the Rock but it would've worked here because the joints would be hidden under the coat.

Hot Toys Marvel's Daredevil 1/6th scale Jon Bernthal as Punisher Collectible Figure Review 1

This was from my most recent haul (posted HERE)

The Punisher (Francis "Frank" Castle) is a fictional character appearing in Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Gerry Conway and artists John Romita Sr. and Ross Andru, with publisher Stan Lee green-lighting the name. The Punisher made his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #129 (cover-dated Feb. 1974).

The Punisher is a vigilante who employs murder, kidnapping, extortion, coercion, threats of violence, and torture in his war on crime. Driven by the deaths of his wife and two children, who were killed by the mob for witnessing a killing in New York City's Central Park, the Punisher wages a one-man war on the mob and all criminals in general by using all manner of conventional war weaponry. A war veteran and a United States Marine Corps Scout Sniper, Frank Castle (born Francis Castiglione) is a master of martial arts, stealth tactics, guerrilla warfare, and a wide variety of weapons.


Jon Bernthal portrays the character in the second season of Marvel's Daredevil as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Bernthal is set to reprise the role in The Punisher, his own self-titled series.

This is the Hot Toys TMS004 Marvel's Daredevil 1/6th scale Jon Bernthal as Punisher 12-inch Collectible Figure and he comes armed with a M134 Minigun. An M134 Minigun is found in a weapons cache uncovered by Frank in "The Dark at the End of the Tunnel" (S2E12). He later is seen handling the weapon in the Season 2 finale "A Cold Day in Hell's Kitchen" (S2E13).

Super Duck 1/6th scale Female Princes Head Sculpt + Costume Set: She-Ra Princess of Power

Pre-order from KGHobby HERE

She-Ra: Princess of Power is an American animated television series produced in 1985 by Filmation. A spin-off of Filmation's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series, She-Ra was aimed primarily at a young female audience to counterbalance He-Man's popularity with young males. Unlike the He-Man cartoon, which was based on the Masters of the Universe toy line by Mattel, the creation of She-Ra was a collaboration between Filmation and Mattel. Mattel provided financial backing for the show, as well as an accompanying toyline. The series premiered in 1985 and was cancelled in 1986, after 2 seasons and 93 episodes.

The show follows the adventures of Princess Adora, Prince Adam/He-Man's twin sister, who leads a group of freedom fighters known as the Great Rebellion in the fight to free Etheria from the tyrannical rule of Hordak and the Evil Horde. With her Sword of Protection Adora can become She-Ra, just as Prince Adam can become He-Man.

Flagset 1/6th scale Doomsday War Series End War Death Squad “K” Caesar 12-inch figure

Human beings seem to have a propensity towards destruction. There are many films that paint a dystopian future, a society characterized by human misery, as squalor, oppression, disease, and overcrowding permeate. Zombies and the undead seem to have a place in such a future and the remaining human race must fight for their survival against all odds. Because of such a bleak scenario where hope seems hopeless and death seems to be knocking at one's door, arming oneself to the teeth seems to be the way to survive and beat the doomsday scenarios. 1/6th scale companies are also jumping on the bandwagon and producing 12-inch figures of this particular genre. Easy & Simple released a Z.E.R.T. (Zombie Eradication Response Team) 1:6 scale Jameson Deathridge 12-inch Figure in 2015 (see the action figure review posted on my toy blog HERE and HERE) as well as the 1/6th scale Zombie Survivor set aka Brad Pitt in World War Z - pictures HERE and HERE.

Check out the Devil Toys Neo Japan 2202 1/6th scale Neo Keisatsu 12-inch Robot Action Figure

In the year 2200, corruption in the world has reached its peak, even police officers are involved in terrorist attacks. In Japan, Neorai Industries has successfully launched its Neo Keisatsu joint project with the government, and replaced all existing human officers with A.I powered mechas.

Mass riots appeared throughout Japan by ex-officers and worried citizens, but the riots were contained efficiently and almost immediately with the merciless Neo Keisatsus. They soon proved that mechas are indeed better in handling tasks and duties than human beings, as crime rate lowers and corruption seems to fade out from Japan, they re-announced "Japan" to "Neo Japan" in the year 2202. Many still doubt the Neo Keisatsu project till this day, as machines are still machines, it can still be controlled and if fallen into the wrong hands, the outcome would be unimaginable.


From Devil Toys comes this Neo Japan 2202 1/6th scale Neo Keisatsu 12-inch Robot Figure and it looks really nice!
