Omoshiroi ... Interesting... Funko is celebrating the highly popular Japanese anime television show Dragon Ball Z. Galactic tyrant Lord Frieza aka Freeza is here to conquer all vinyl figure collection! He is too cute on the hoverchair, almost makes me think of "Baby Yoda (The Child)" on the hover pram. As a toy, the figure is balanced by a clear base at the bottom. Funko makes this vinyl baby in such adorable style that I find so hard to dislike this villian. I am not complaining. Lolz...

Henshin look back time on Kamen Rider V3! Certainly more vibrant colours when compared to the earlier riders. V is clearly indicated on his antenna and belt. This figure is not the vintage but released in 2008. Figure stands roughly 18cm tall and is made by vinyl material It features articulation via a rotation in the shoulders and the waist. The design has a lot of green on the entire body with some red, white and chrome. I really like those old-school insect eyes that's stay true to the original. Good budget figure and with the feel of the figure which I used to play as a kid.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba certainly took the manga and anime world by storm. Like most, I have also took a liking for the anime. Episode 19 is by far my favourite episode in the series with the strongest action and emotion. Zenitsu remains my most beloved characters and till now my only figurine related to this anime. Think I will have more coming lol...
I like interesting stuffs and would tend to get my hands on anime related snacks such as these snacks (wafer + chocolate bar) with Demon Slayer artworks when I find them a Japanese supermarket. They usually have sticker or card within as souvenir.
Another featured item in this post is Tanjiro's plastic replica sword by Jaia. If I'm correct, this toy comes under the category of prize item. Fortunately, the item is available for purchase at anime store locally without the need to catch from crane catcher machine. Well, I'm sure there are folks there who enjoy the thrill of crane catcher machine. Tanjiro plastic sword belongs to Desmond and appreciate that he showed me the toy during our last meet-up.

Started jogging a bit more after joining Gundam Run 2020. I like the Gundam medal so I took on the 40 km challenge while wifee took 20 km to get the Zaku II medal. It's a virtual run therefore you need no have to run full distance at one go. Mileage can be accumulated and hence more leisure. It's supposed to be a fun run and at the same time promote fitness. Attached are some of my run records. Glad I managed to jog 10 km eventually. On a side note, thank you wifee for getting blue laces for my Gundam shoes. Now my shoes looks even more Gundam RX-78-2.

Castle under siege... Fire Emblem is one of the earliest turn-based strategy games I played on console and heavy knights gave me a deep impression. Here is my ‘Mystery of the Emblem’ gashapon by Yujin. As you know, knight fantasy is one of my favourite anime and game genre. Those heavily armoured tanker always catches my attention. Therefore it is natural, I have my eyes on this gashapon.
Two tankers fighting it out on the bridge and the red knight stands victorious. Certainly an old-school Fire Emblem style on the 8-bit NES console. Game have certain similarities to reality, most ppl prefer to play characters who shine hence tankers ain’t that popular. I like tankers as they are heavy and so armored. Sincere thanks to those who help to tank me in my life.
