Located at Chinatown, Singapore, it is considered as heaven for those who love action figures and candy toys. It’s also a good place to look for some figures or toys that are obsolete in market. There is a good chance that you can find them here.

Mid-year competition 2010

Went to Ngee Ann City Plaza yesterday to see Bandai mind-year gunpla competition 2010. This time the theme is MG and SD gundam. Here are some of the entries. Enjoy….

Evangelion 2.22

Anybody watched Evangelion 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance? I thought they were going to make the movie according to the manga? Why so sudden they changed the plot and IMHO, it is weird (all those the beginning of third impact, awakening of EVA unit 1). Is it because GAINAX hasn’t finished up the manga? Or they see that this particular franchise is still profitable in the long run, like the Gundams. Well you can see from the figurines with “You Can (Not) Advance” tag and the introduction of new character (and I believe new eva unit used by the twelfth angel).

Apart from the story line, I think the animation art is very nice and the OST too. I like it a lot. It just fits into the battle scene (and the rainbow after each battle ^ ^). The new weapons and equipment for the EVAs are just great. For those who haven’t watched it, I won’t give any spoilers. I can say that this OVA is worth watching and if you are a hard=core fan for Evangelion series, I believe you will get the figurines too.

Some of the figurines with “You Can (Not) Advance” tag (aren’t they beautiful? ^ ^).

Report from Toy Carnival 2010

Well, I went to Toy Carnival yesterday and it shocked me that the show actually is a part of electronic expo and gaming expo (^ ^)… The event itself is not too big, but you can definitely find a lot of cheap toys (and Gunplas) over there. Didn’t purchase anything cause as I said in my previous posting, I need to save money this year (after trips to Australia and Taiwan). A lot of activity zones in the expo such as FIFA world cup challenge (LAN/online game), World of Warcraft play zone, then we have show case of 3D televisions etc.

Ok, here are some pictures I snapped from the show (taken with HD mini). I focused mainly on the toys section of the expo.

Overview of the Toy Carnival "corner"

You can see how cheap they are...!!!!!

Lots of Sangokuden o.O

And this…

Mark III battle damaged version

Oh, and there is Blizzard booth and you can try out Starcraft 2 in it. The game definitely worth playing… the graphic is awesome and the units…. man, I’m speechless… tried for a couple of minutes during the expo and I could say I’m going to get this game when it is released in July (….. oooppsss, just realized that I need to purchase a new laptop for it…. no money… *sob*)
