Yoko Real Image Version (よーこ りあるいめーじばーじょん) By Max Factory

May 19, 2009

Gurren Lagaan

Gurren Lagann takes place in a future where human beings have been forced under Earth’s surface and live in isolated subterranean civilizations. These “villages” have no contact with the surface world or other villages. Because frequent earthquakes damage infrastructure, the villages must constantly extend deeper into the earth — individuals relegated to this task are known as “diggers”.

The discovery of large robots, the ‘Gurren’, terrorising the surface of the earth, and the use of a small drill key that can be used to activate a small robot named ‘Lagann’ to defeat them joins the fates of the three main characters of this series: Simon, Kamina and Yoko.

Now, Max Factory has produced a realistic take on Yoko, the sniper of Team Gurren. As a slightly different image to the original work, Yoko has been sculpted in a more realistic manner, creating a new exquisite presence.

Yoko

From the details on her tight hot-pants and knee-socks to the smallest of details on her fingertips and facial expression – Yoko has been brought to life as a zealous 1/6 scale PVC figure.

A visor is also included and can be attached to create a more stylish image. There are many Yoko figures around, but this is one with a very distinct charm that collectors are bound to fall in love with.

Retailing at ¥9800 to be released in September 2009, this is certainly one hot babe to look out for in the coming months!

The Joker From Hot Toys

April 8, 2009

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the most part of 2008, you’d know that The Dark Knight was only the biggest superhero film to hit screens worldwide.

And if you haven’t been living under a rock, you’d also know that Heath Ledger chillingly and accurately played one of the most famous super criminals in the comic book world. His portrayal of the Joker still sends shivers down my spine everytime I think of his performance.

I still remember when Heath was cast as the Joker, I couldn’t imagine how he’d pull it off. Then the first teaser trailer hit the internet and I heard that voice and laugh and I knew…I just KNEW he got the Joker’s essence down pat.

It is therefore of no surprise that Hot Toys has created a replica figure of the late Heath Ledger from the movie, The Dark Knight, in 1/6 scale:

the-joker-c

The debut of the Hot Toys MMSDX series is THE JOKER from the Dark Knight movie, featuring:

– Hot Toys True Type figure with over 35 points of articulation
– Stands approximately 12 inches / 31 cm tall
– Dressed in a Gotham City police suit, hat, Gotham City cop badge and shoes, this is what the character wears for assassination scene in the movie.

the-joker-b

– Weapon: M1 Garand Rifle
– Additional costume: Improved & movie-accurate Joker costume of an overcoat, sport coat, vest, shirt, tie, pants, belt, socks and shoes, with grenades rig and suspenders

the-joker-e

– Weapons and accessories: Five pieces of grenades, knife, pistol and Joker cards
– Seven Interchangeable posing hands
– An interchangeable and new make-up Joker head featured with Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) and colored Translucent Iris.

  • *About Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS)

PERS is a brand new technique that applies to Hot Toys MMSDX figurines, special features include:
– Unique designed eyeballs with colored Translucent Iris
– Simultaneous Positionable Eyeball Function
– Works in all direction, as natural as human eyes

This figure was sculpted by Yulli and painted by JC Hong. Costume was created by Harue Creative (Hai Lim).

World of Warcraft Clay Figurines!

April 4, 2009

The release of Wrath of the Lich King (WoW) really made me miss playing the game. I played WoW for about two years before I decided to retire. It was a fantastic ride and I retired at what I felt was the peak of my game at the time.

I was healing class leader of a guild that was, at its time rated at top 10-15 on the server in terms of content progression.

Here’s a screen of me back then:

squishie

We’d cleared Karazhan, Gruul’s Lair as well as Magtheridon. We were just about to start on Tier 5 content when the guild fell apart and most of the core players left for other servers. I’d achieved 4/5 Tier 4 gear and most of the dps gear from Karazhan at that time. Reading online progression and developments on the game sites really makes me reminisce everyday. I marvel at how much WoW has changed since I’ve left it.

So imagine my joy when I spotted these on the internet:

Draenei Priest in Tier 6 armour:

priest-t6

Undead Mount:

ud-mount

The ever loveable Voidwalker:

vw

Cool looking Blood Elf in Tier 5 armour:

blood-elf-t5

And a Loladin in Tier 2:

pally-t2

Sigh. This really brings back a lot of memories.

From a collector’s point of view, these are beautifully hand made. Such exceptional detail and colours!

For those of you want some of these, iWantThatToy certainly has a surprise in store for you. Get ready your wallets and check back here soon.
