The Raid - Special Destroy Evil Unit SDEU Figures

I shall titled this post as 'The Raid' and have it dedicated to my Special Destroy Evil Unit S.D.E.U. Medicom is consider as one of the pioneer toy companies that collaborated with designer toy artists.  I find these dwarfed figures interesting with their oversized weapons. They have a strong SWATS team special forces vides. My first version id the desert camouflaged version and the second is the more simplified keychain version in blue (this version doesn't come with detachable weapons. The blue color way give it more naval feel. The version that I like the most is definitely the stealth version 飞虎 . I even gotten a 1/6 scale police shield to compliment it. Last but not least, the mask can be removed to reveal the face of the officer.

DBZ Kuji Prize A Yamcha Figure

A賞 for my favourite Dragon Ball Z (DBZ) character. Yamcha has definitely gotten his recognition, not for his strength is a top DBZ fighter but as Ichiban Kuji Prize A! We missed your smile and waving long hair Yamcha! Very cool pose and the confidence on facial expression presented by the figure! Certainly the pride of a DBZ warrior before Saibamen exploded on him. LOL! Very glad to see more Yamcha figures been produced in recent years. The only shortcoming I see in this figure is that the figure is unable to hold itself without the clear support part. The clear part kind of affected the whole aesthetic and this type of clear material tends to turn yellow with time.

1/35 Scale Border Break Kisei Kuushiki


I don't play the third-person mecha action arcade game developed by Sega which later transited to PS4, but this mecha is a love at first when I saw a video of the statue displayed at an hobby exhibition in Japan. It is only available as a model kit released by Kotobukiya in 1/35 scale (standing approx 16cm) and I strong feel that I need to build and paint it to give justice to this Border Break Kisei Kuushiki, designed by Mr Shigeo Mouri. 

Love the design of how practical the mecha would be presumed in a near future. How the weapons are stored in the rear, SC-MARCHWAY can be equipped to the back mounter. A touch of the military green on the forearm, plus boosters can be attached to the left and right thigh, and the nozzle armour can be extended.

It's not over yet with Omicron! All is well and I had my booster vaccination taken. Not a really good year for me as  I was struggling with skin rash some time after taking Pfizer and eventually was admission to hospital for viral infection. Gone through a minor surgery and followed by abscess due to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Well, what didn't kill us, make us stronger. I am very grateful to all who supported me through the ordeal. 

So much about me, let's follow the tradition of Top Ten Toys (TTT). This year picks are mainly based on nostalgia. As we grew old, we looked more to the past reminiscing the good old days. My passion for toys are still strong though my hair is turning grey by the days. Special mention to Dirty Pair ダーティペア Kei & Yuri Resin Statues as they are really one of a kind. Resin kits that's beautifully painted.

I have combined both VR Man and Phua Chu Kang PCK figures as a pick because they are both produced  by GGNW. Great to see iconic characters from past local sitcoms made into action figures. I am very into Masters of the Universe MOTU Origins this year, many He-Man figures released that looks like the vintage with new toy technology. They are very cool and I had a lot of fun custom painting my very own Copycat. 

Mecha entries goes to Cyber Troopers Virtual-On for the SEGA Saturn mounted on the back. Old gamer's choice LOL. Always a Macross fan and Custom Painted Macross VF-1S Resin Kit (E2046) is a definite entry. Not forgetting Science Ninja Team Gatchaman - God Phoenix Eagle. As for cartoon toy entries, they are Centurions PowerXtreme Ace McCloud Kenner Figure, Visionaries Leoric Figure (SDCC 2017) and Master Piece Optimus Prime Evangelion Unit 01 Colour Way. 

Lastly, the only designer toy that make it to this year TTT is none other than Gundam RX-78-2 Molly. I just love the first Gundam colour way! An honourable mention to Street Sharks - Ripster. I wished I could list more toys...
