Rider Hero Series 01 - Kamen Rider Zero-One Rising Hopper Soft Vinyl Figure









Every era needs a hero! The Japanese are currently in the Reiwa period (basically a new emperor Naruhito, succeeded to the throne). Tokusatsu drama takes a relook of the original Kamen Rider which started off the insect theme and restart the number count to Zero-One!

Grasshopper design is certainly a safe choice giving birth to Rising Hopper and obviously its ability is jump. Base form Kamen Rider in primary colours of bright highlighter green with black contrast like it glows all day long. There is a little touch of silver to it as well. Quite a unique take there.

With my limited budget, I settled with 7" soft vinyl Bandai figure with 3-point-articulation. I won't complain for the lack of details on the back of the figure for the price I'm paying for.  Regardless, it's henshin time : )

Dragon Ball DBZ Bardock Masked Saiyan Heroes DXF 7th Banpresto Figure (Custom Painted)









It can't stand on its own so requires the base to hold up. 


Revealing bare back ^_^


Bottom to top angle has a badass death stare

Purple stand not included...

So are the power effect and ball ^_^






The Masked Saiyan Saga is a major plot arc of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. The games features the Future Warrior and Trunks: Xeno as they search for the brainwashed Masked Saiyan Bardock aka Time Breaker Bardock, in order to track down the whereabouts of the Dark Empire Towa and Mira in order to free him from their control. The plot involved a villain named Mira, a member of the Time Breakers, who uses time travel, mind control, and the remnants of Frieza’s army, among others, to accomplish his goals. An enslaved Bardock, in the game has a slightly different armour and a mysterious mask covering his face, he went by the titles the Masked Saiyan Bardock, unbound by Darkness aka Time Breaker Bardock. He was manipulated by Mira until finally coming to his senses when the mask broke. 

Also appearing on the sensational overseas trading card arcade game, Super Dragon Ball Heroes, master figure producer Banpresto has developed by far the best authentic, all new sculpt designs in their signature DXF figure line! Inspired by the time warping Xenoverse dimension of the Dragon Ball franchise! Bardock Masked Saiyan Heroes DXF 7th Banpresto figure standing at 7.1 inches tall and he looks very epic. Figure fans will be glad to add these new versions of all star characters to MY growing Saiyan Lineage Warrior Race. I have the habit of getting custom painted figure and I settled with this piece for enhanced realism.

SSSS.Gridman Sofvi Figure






















Access Flash! Good thing that I have moved away from too much gaming after decided to live a healthier lifestyle, focus more on workout and hopefully transform from uncle to hunkle lolz. Don't be mistaken as I still gaming but at leisure pace and have more time to go back to anime watching and gunpla-ing. 

Pretty cool that manga /anime Ultraman and anime SSSS.Gridman had given Tokusatsu series a new direction, reaching out to younger fans and strengthening the franchise continuity. SSSS.Gridman is a well received anime in general. I especially like the opening song of the anime and how the anime paid tributes to the original Denkou Choujin Gridman.

There are a variety of SSSS.Gridman toys due to its popularity, however I particularly like the Sofvi (soft vinyl) SSSS.Gridman by Clover Fine. As I was holding the 7" figure, it doesn't feel like soft vinyl because the figure feels hard and heavy. Personally, I'm not familiar with the brand 'Clover Fine' nonetheless I'm impressed with the quality of this fully painted figure. I'm more into non-articulated figure and this definitely is perfect for my collection.

Red Comet Char's Zaku II - 361° Shoes (Gundam)

I feel that my running speed have improved by 3 times (Imagination Vs Reality) lolz...

I really like the high cut basketball design of the shoes


Compared to Char's Zaku II, the colour is more red than pink. Maybe it's the why 361° added pinky spots or dots on the sole to compliment it. 

The clip and zipper certainly added more details to the design and the colour is undeniably striking!


There are some wordings on the shoes and IMHO, apart from Char's Zaku II model tyre MS-06S, the other words seems kind of cheesy. 




PS: My apologies for adding some of my not-shy pics in this post. Just wanted to show more of my Red Comet Char's stuff... Gomen'nasai ごめんなさい


I feel that my running speed have improved by 3 times (Imagination Vs Reality) lolz... Finally found the perfect shoes to match my Red Comet tee Sieg Zeon! I really like the high cut basketball design of the shoes, hmm maybe I can jump 3 times higher (My life is a lie) lolz... The clip and zipper certainly added more details to the design and the colour is undeniably striking!

If you look carefully, there are so pink spots on the sole. Compared to the colour scheme of the original Char's Zaku II, the colour is more red than pink. However in recently anime 'Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin', Char's Zaku II is given a more reddish colour scheme. Maybe this is the reason why 361° added pinky spots or dots on the sole to compliment both new and old. There are some wordings on the shoes and IMHO, apart from Char's Zaku II model tyre MS-06S, the other wordings seems kind of cheesy.

I have worn both the Mobile Suit Gundam - 361° shoes and this ... My verdict is that Red Comet Char's Zaku II - 361° shoes feels more comfortable when I actually try it on for jogging.
