a tiny trooper story

The little Stormtrooper in my minifig collection was getting anxious about being cooped up in my apartment all the time. He begged to come with me to the Singapore Toys, Games and Comics Convention.

He went on his merry little way for the most part, but asked to have his picture taken when we both found the Star Wars booth.

Here he is with a TIE Pilot.


And of course, he couldn't resist a picture with a life-size version of him. "I feel so small," he said.


We spent an entire afternoon looking at things at the convention, but it was fairly crowded and hot (both inside and outside the convention center) and I wasn't feeling well, plus I hadn't eaten yet that day so we decided to stop by a café for some "afternoon breakfast".

Here he is checking out our window table. Thankfully the window shades were pulled down so the blaring sun from outside wasn't burning us.


I ordered a cold glass of apple cider. He wasn't allowed to drink from my cider, but he at least got to cool off for a bit on it.


He wanted some of my food, too.


After the meal, and we finally made our way home, he ran straight to the couch for a nap. I guess he was as tired as I was.

toy showcase: kre-o microchangers combiners - constructicon devastator

I *love* the Kre-O microchangers series. And when they came out with 4 packs of combiner/gestalt goodness? I had to rush to the nearest Toys R Us the moment there was confirmed sighting of their stock arrival.Now, I understand that there are Transformers fans out there who are rather disappointed with this series - they'd rather see more awesome bots and figures being produced by Hasbro. I am not against them, cooler bot toys would be awesome, too. But I do love me some Lego minifig-style bots. They're easy to play with and bring around and take silly pictures with!There are a total of 4 different Combiner packs so far: Decepticon Bruticus, Constructicon Devastator, Predaking, and Superion. That's 3 Decepticon gestalts versus 1 Autobot gestalt. Not fair, Hasbro! :P But whatever, I guess they went by popularity? I don't know.Here are the main covers of the boxes:And the front flaps that showcase the individual Kreon bots:Notice how they only make use of 4 bots for each …

the 2012 holiday greeting cards

Work has been kicking my ass these past few months - I have never been as busy in my job as I have been these recent times! But I really wanted to get some cards printed out to mail to friends this year. I keep wanting to do it every year, but something almost always comes up. Somehow, I got the motivation this year to really, really do it. Even if I practically have no free time.Not sure how that works out for my brain and motivation, but hey, here we are. Two sleepless nights of setups and picture-taking, and a few trips to various printers to find one that printed decently and was open during hours when I could actually be around, and here is the result:The subjects are a mix of Transformers, Avengers and Minecraft. Plus Deadpool, who was a last-minute inclusion because he just happened to be there. I'm slightly disappointed in myself for not having one with DC Superheroes minifigs. Maybe next year.One of my friends remarked, "Who sends cards these days?"  Hah! I love…
