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:

My Scattered Toys 2012 Holiday Greeting Cards featuring Transformers Avengers

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 postal mail (both sending and receiving!). I don't care that people think it's such an "old school" thing to do. :D

Here's a picture of all the card covers:

Aren't they tacky? :D I didn't want to go for serious. Toys are great for tacky. :) I'll be the first to admit, the photography isn't superb, either. But if at least one person enjoys them (other than me, of course), then it was all worth it.

I've put them all in a PDF you can download (Right-Click, Save As: My Scattered Toys 2012 Holiday Greeting Cards) if you want to print some for yourself to give to kids or whoever for Christmas. There is 2 cards to a PDF. I had them printed at Unusual Print in the Bras Basah complex here in Singapore. Cool people working there, and they even helped cut out the cards for me!

If you don't feel like printing out some for yourself, and you've love to receive a card from me via postal mail, drop me a message with your postal address via the contact form in the Contact Page!

Now, I just hope the postal system doesn't fail me and at least gets the cards I've mailed out already to their recipients at least before the year ends! D:

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 …

fun with a personal bat signal

On my second viewing of The Dark Knight Rises (awesome movie, by the way!), the cinema was selling a popcorn and soda combo that came with a projector pen. Yes, I am well aware that cinema popcorn is highway robbery in disguise. But I like my movie munchies, so there. :P Anyway, about that projector pen -- I thought it would just be a random pen with a flashlight on one end, and the writing tip on the either, except that since this is a TDKR promo, it would have a Batman logo on the side.When I got home and tried the flashlight out, it projected a Dark Knight Rises Bat logo! Freaking awesome! I now have a personal mini bat signal. :D Woot!Batman and Robin were more than willing to pose with the new toy.Here’s Batman with a solo, err, trio shot of bats.Even Catwoman wanted in on the action. Something about black also being her color, and loving shadows and being adaptable. Yeah, something like that.She actually wanted her close-up picture featured instead, but she was in a frantic hurr…

the beer and the bees - my toys are alive 02

This is the 2nd comic from my old comic series, My Toys are Alive. Before you start reading, though, know that light booze and candy addiction, as well as some "grownup humor", may appear in these comics. You can click the mini version of the comic below to see the larger, more readable version. Enjoy!
