Event: Custom Danbo Contest

This is my first attempt to customize an existing plastic figure and transform it into a totally new character.


Hello, Danbo (Danboard)! This was waiting for me when I arrived from Hongkong last February.




Danbo, a trip to my Gunpla room, some paint, and a whole lot of love transformed this emo guy into a mothership blasting mobile armor!



Inspired by the ultra huge space mobile armor RX-78 GP03 Gundam Dendrobium, this Danbo has been appropriately named Dandrobium to fit his new armaments.

Thanks to Big Boys Toy Store for giving Danbo lovers out there the chance to customize this cute piece!


Voting is underway at Big Boys Toy Store Facebook Page, and if you love my Danbo please "LIKE and COMMENT" here:

Kidrobot: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Cowabunga, dude! Pizza time!



 



Here's a little teaser from Kidrobot on what they've been concocting lately -- our radioactive super heroes, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT)! These heroes in a half shelf are currently being Munnyfied along with the other awesome characters we grew up with like Master Splinter, Shredder, Beebop, Rocksteady, Krang and the Foot Ninjas.

Make sure you have shelf space for the 4" Donatello, Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and Raphael Munnys, the 3" minifigure series, and the 7" Beebop and Rocksteady. This designer toy line will surely look good with all your other TMNT toys.

Batman: Black and White Statue List

Sometime mid-2012, I posted my Batman Black and White statue collection. At that time, I counted 41 statues (villains included) in my cabinet. After 1.5 years, there are 56 released statues (2nd editions included)! 

I completed all the statues, but haven't displayed around 10 of them...running out of shelf space. *sigh* It's my all-time favorite collectible and I'm really excited to unbox all of them. Time to rotate and keep some other toys. As my blog title goes...BACK TO THE BOX! That's the vicious cycle a toy collector always goes through. XD
