nature’s wonder


Unagiinu
Origin: Baka Tensai Bakabon

this’ll be my last figure-related gibberish for this year, heheh…

my favorite character from Japanese comdey manga!!
presenting to you, wonder of our mother nature, the weirdest among weird, ladies and gentlemeeen, please welcome UNAGIINU!! \^0^/

in case you never heard bout this character, he is an original and iconic character from Japanese legendary comedy series, Baka Tensai BAKABON!!
hum… let’s see… unagi in English means eel, while inu means dog… so, is this a crossbreed among ‘em both?!?!
undoubtedly!!
this famous crazy character is a crossbreed among those two animal
his father is a dog who walk past a fish shop and met one very attractive female eel, and they decided to get married… crazy huh? well, if you read the manga, this won’t sounds so crazy, cause there are thousands of another crazy concept within that manga!!

enough bout the character background, this figure is actually a sofubi, one that made out of PVC and came without any articulation… more like a designer toy IMO
the detail is quite amazing; that glossy-wet look black color of his skin, his detailed tail, and even if you looked down, he got that “X” mark as his belly button… sooo manga style!! X D

I got mine already re-packaged and sold in Super Position Osaka… so I have no ideas regarding the manufacture, original price and the production year of this unique toy… I would really appreciate if anyone of you can help me with those information ^^
the one thing that I know, he came with various alternate colors… from purple, yellow to even green!! and as usual, the original color is the most expensive one… spent quite lot of money for this little dude >_<

here's another photo of him while he's hanging around the pond

please share any information you got incase you now something more bout this toy, I’m dead curious, especially to see the original packaging and to know more bout the manufacturer

well then, till next year!!

Scarlet Magician


Magired – Trading Figure Ranger Strike Solid series 1
Origin: Mahou Sentai Magiranger
Manufacturer: Bandai

Mahou Sentai Magiranger or more well known as Magic Squadron Magiranger in US market is a super sentai series for the year 2005

although I’m not a fans of super sentai series, but back then I really dig the concept on this series, which I considered to be really unique…really stand-out among other super sentai theme!!

so the theme for this series is wizardry, or magic to be more precise…
each of the team member, which usually differ in five colors, have their own unique element regarding to the magic basic elements!!
red-> alchemy/fire
yellow-> potions/thunder
blue-> fortune telling/water
pink-> transformation/wind
green-> herb/earth

move on to the trading figure, this Ranger Strike Solid series definitely is one of my favorite trading figure, tamashii has done it again, bravooo!!
there are total of five figure-consist of 3 human characters and 2 robots… as for the characters, there are a variant version for each character, which why I really love this series!! the metallic color!!
that beautiful metallic color, the one we usually could find on any SIC action figure

I don’t know why,but this trading figure series seems to be not very popular here in my country… some of the local store have a big sale on this series… could it be the same happen in Japan?? cause until now they haven’t release the second series/wave yet…

well, a great figure with a great price cause no one want them is a big catch for me! ;)

I’ll review the other human characters soon, the Abaranger and the Vuleagle

50 already? woah, that’s kinda fast…

so I wrote 50 toys related post, excluding the term definition and introduction post, not bad… but MORE to come!! just sight tight and enjoy the ride, heheh

hum.. maybe it’s a good time to write somethin other than toys for a change… what should I write…
oh I know!!
since lot of people and friends keep asking me what camera do I use for my photos, maybe I just make short reviews bout the cameras that I used for my figure shots

they usually thought that I’m using a DSLR camera,
I am not guys… keep telling ya, I’m only using cheap- low spec digital cameras for my photos and I don’t have a DSLR… you know us collector, we prefer to spend more and more money to ease our addiction ;p

so, there are 3 digital cameras that I’m using until now for my figure photos, which are:
- Casio Exilim EX-Z3 3.2 MP (bought in 2003)
- Fuji Finepix S5700 7.2 MP (2008)
- Fuji Finepix Z33WP Underwater 10.0 MP (2010)
then for this week, I’ll talk about each one of those cameras
including the spec, short review, some blabbering story and example photos from my shots

hope you could enjoy, cheers
