I have not been blogging for a very long time. I guess now its the year 2012 time to start fresh 🙂

For Information I have now moved back to my country Indonesia, suprisingly the toy communities here are a lot more happening then what it was before in Australia.

Work have been very much busy. I have just recently changed the server for my website.

Anywho, perhaps I’m a bit bored with Hot Toys and 1/6 frenzy. My love for mecha will never dies. I started to go back to to collect all the PG gundam again

Ironically, these Gundam which I previously owned and soled it to people with very cheap price. Now time to get them back with a cheap price, I realise its very hard to find a cheap Gundam.

My last recent steal is the PG 1/60 Aile Strike Gundam.

Not only comes assembled but the Gundam that I obtained comes out with nice painted and decals.

I like it how the color is very similar to the original Gundam color…

Please enjoy this collection of mine….

Damn! not again, Nintendo have officially confirmed that they will launch another Nintendo DSi, called LL. Like the rumors been predicting NDSi LL have a screen of 4.2 inch that is almost 24% larger than the new DSI. It comes with a two type of stylus small and long ones. Perhaps the Dsi LL will reach out more to the older generation (mums and dad ).

Dsi LL also have slightly better battery life. For you who owned a DS lite maybe this is the time to upgrade.

The price tag will be 220 US or (22000 Yen) 3000 Yet cheaper then the PSP Go. Not sure if the price will be adjusted for North America release.

The sad thing is just bought myself a DSI not long ago.. and this one came 🙁
siggh.. technology advancement.. will never end…

Before it went on sale later next month, Bandai is giving out free kit for modeling expert to test out the kit. Couple of lucky plamodel professional from Japan already get this PG 1/60 Rasier kit early. This particular PG model was completed by Meister Sekita from Dengeki Hobby Workshop. No doubt Mr Sekita is an avid Gundam maker, and apparently after a closer investigation this kit does look very generic and similar to the anime. Definitely it is not ordinary, but its not that special as well. The advantage of this is the size and the superb detail. Should you get one ? perhaps wait for more review later…..
