Dennis' Top Ten Toys (TTT) 2009

Realtype Knight Gundam - A definite Number 1 of 2009. It's like a dream come true to final having the toy which I long for since I started collecting toys!

Runner-up is this super rare 1/40 Orguss II Olson Orgroid Special with the assistance of Tokyohunter. Have also been looking for this many years and so very glad that it comes in mint condition.

Second-runner up is Evil G1 Jetfire - A long and big customised project for me this year and thankfully the effort paid off. Now I have my very own Evil Jetfire!

4th position: I just got has huge toy a few days back from Falcon's Hangar. High anticipated Macross toy which managed to squezze within Katsuden’s TTT 2009 before the end of the year. A must have for Macross fans this year.

5th position: Bandai 1/55 scale valkyries have always been my favourite Macross toy line and I can’t help buying 1/55 scale VF-1A Max DYRL Super Valkyrie especially when it’s the first time Bandai ever made this version. It toy has gave me the ideal of customising it to 1/55 scale VF-1S Max Strike Valkyrie.

6th position: I have yet to done a review of this Armoured Valkyrie but this vintage Macross toyline by Takatoku is one I wanted badly when I was a kid. I remember saving up my school allowance for the Hikaru version but it was no longer on the shelve when returned to the shop. I'm still searching for Hikaru version Armoured Valkyrie gift set. Nevertheless Max version has been a great consolation.

7th position: Bought this Yamato 1/24 Patlabor Ingram during a shopping spree. Item is still MISB. Yet to do a review by many say this is one of the most comprehensive Patlabor toy made so far. It's also the biggest Patlabor toy till date.

Position 8th: Chogokin Evangelion 00' is one of the most value for money buy this day. It kind of rekindled my interest for Neo Genesis Evangelion.

Position 9: MSIA Dendrobium - I love big toys and this one is really huge! I bought it secondhand on Ebay and was disappointed with the original state. It was stained with dust and had turned yellow. The terrible state spurred me in giving the toy a complete overhaul. Hence, I disassembled and resprayed it. Feels great after savaging it.

I always wanted my personal capsule machine and surprise surprise! Look what I found while shopping for my kids' Christmas presents. Fascinating else it! It even works when I put a Singapore 50 cents coin. Now it's fun fun fun for my kids and I.

Seasons Greeting! It's year end again and by invitation of Shaun (Fortress of Testicular Fortitude), I'm hereby doing a Top Ten Toys which I had owned for year 2009. Due to time constraint, I have not review most of my top ten toys this year and could only come up with a post to sum up all 10 entries. I hope this post will provide you with a peep of toys I will blog about the coming year.The journey to toy collecting never dies!

Now I get to your know you better and that you like Evangelion too! I would really want to pose Macross Quarter with 1/3000 SDF-1.

The capsule machine to me is ultra unique and something I will not get sick of playing.

>> Ant Sized Man
This Knight Gundam is one super rare toy really. It took me about 7 years to finally get hold of one. Precious!

>> jeroprime
It's around one thousand Sing dollars. The commission if I remember is around 15%. Reasonable to me for hard-to-find toy like this. still is mint condition. Good reliable service and carefully packed postage.

Nice...even though I dont really follow Japanese toys...:)

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

Thx! It's because of my liking for Mechs toys that I'm more inclined to Japanese toys such as Bandai, Takara Tomy and Yamato.

deSMOnd said...

The gashapon machine surprised me as well. It's one of your favourite toys in 2009. Can't believe it :)
