    Yo, How You Gifting This Year?!?

    It gets pretty lonely when you’re spewing out content on a Tumblr dashboard for people to reblog and like and never comment on. I’ve been writing for Albotas since 2009. I see cool stuff, I post it — Robby and Marc do the same.

    But I’ve been needing some action. We need some feedback. We want people to talk!

    So I think I’m going to post a weekly question to get some discussion going in our comments. I will be doing a quick write-up on some discussions if they’re entertaining enough, and everyone who chimes in will be getting their name out there in said write-up. Let’s tighten up, guys! We’ll make ya feel good. ;)

    I’m kicking things off tonight because I’m bored out of my mind and would love to speak with some of our readers for once.

    My question to everyone is: How are you guys gifting this year? How kickass is your present giving? Are you giving people shitty gifts on purpose or do you have a really cool, inventive, touching backstory to your presents for others this holiday season? I wanna see photos, I wanna hear stories, I wanna see discussion.

    Don’t embarrass me. Hit the read more button to jump to our page and reply in the comment section. I might even be generous enough to gift one of you guys something for a good enough comment.

    The Black Rock Shooter craze peaked just as I was getting into figure collecting - in fact the original figma BRS was one of the first figmas I ever bought. Seeing the franchise continue on sure does take me back a ways!

    Kahotan's English blog has a preview of the new Nendoroid Strength up. She's sporting her signature hoodie, and of course her gigantic robot hands too. In the package you'll get a selection of alternate arms and her "insane" expression. If you have her ordered, she'll be shipping out on December 16. Just in time for the holidays!

    Nendoroid Strength is quite a handful screenshot

    The included Lightning McQueen is plastic but it looks like it should work with diecast CARS. Thanks for the nice photos, “Lane Change.”   The main selling point seems to be that you can connect the Ramone’s and Luigi’s though clearly whomever designed this “feature,” seems to have never actually watched CARS, the movie. So, […]

    I've become pretty enamored with Kantai Collection ever since I saw the Shimakaze Nendoroid. Some people were a bit creeped out by her but the character designs are beyond adorable. Now Kahotan has posted a preview of the fully-painted Akagi (in Japanese), and she's just as cute.

    Akagi features several design cues from her eponymous aircraft carrier, not the least of which is a miniature version of the Akagi herself. Even the fletching on her arrows bear the distinctive insignia of the Zero fighter. Very cool! Other accessories include some miniature fighters, a bowl of rice (with a great eating expression and dining set), and a bucket of bauxite ore. Yeah, I don't know about that last one.

    This seems to be a pretty awesome set just in terns of the number of accessories. The icing on the cake is a teaser of figma Shimakaze, also fully painted. If I get one of these, I'm afraid I'll have to get them all!

    Ladies and gents, you've seen her shoulder (and back of her head), but now you can see the rest of Kotobukiya's Street Fighter Bishoujo Cammy White. The svelte Street Fighter has been revealed in her entirety thanks to a new photo gallery.

    While I liked the look of the teaser, my hopes were predictably dashed when the whole thing was revealed. Besides the inescapable pinkeye, some of the musculature is a bit of a turn-off such as that... weird vein-like thing poking out of left leg (c'mon, Kotobukiya, I don't need to see that!) and the added definition at her hips where her flesh sinks in a bit. The upper body-work is still cool and, although I don't like the face, the rest of the head is nicely done.

    I fully imagine that others will like this quite a bit more than I do, as I don't feel they've quite done justice to my favorite female Street Fighter. Oh well, at least the pose is kinda neat (although I feel that Megahouse's Dragon's Crown Elf did the whole "spin-breaker" better). Be sure to check out the gallery for additional images.

    Aquamarine has a new soft vinyl figure out, and of all things, it's of Rensouhou-chan from Kantai Collection. Yes, from the show of boats-of-war-as-girls comes a little, chibi, sentient cannon that Shimakaze happens to own. And it is absolutely an adorable way to blast your enemies' faces off. It's pretty hefty, too, standing 13 cm tall with a few points of articulation.

    Rensouhou-chan is priced at ¥5,000 and is set to deploy in April. Any Kan Colle fans out there excited?

    I haven't been keeping up with the release of the 2nd series for Playge's BB / blind boxed "A Little Misfortune", featuring designs from FERG, and in reference to this particular image posted above, are the 4 variations of the "Be-Headed Cats" designed by Chris Ryniak, and they look pretty nifty indeed!

    OMG! Buzzfeed has just nostalgia-blasted me with an incredible walk down memory lane via a list of twenty-five awesome toys you may have owned or wanted as a kid growing up in the '80s.

    While the list is far from complete (No DC Super Powers Collection figures?! No Visionaries?! Where are the Battle Beasts?!), it includes mega highlights like Thundercats, Castle Grayskull, Jem and the Holograms, Madballs, and more. It reminded me of the pain of not owning an Optimus Prime (and Megatron, among other G1 Transformers) growing up, having lost my original Thundercats (among other toys), and not even knowing where my Castle Grayskull and Real Ghostbusters Firehouse are today.

    Of course, the list is also significant for the things it omits: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures, that expensive die-cast Voltron, My Pet Monster (I miss you, Wogster!), and so on. That said, it had quite a few items I had either forgotten about (Teddy Ruxpin!) or recalled the item but couldn't remember the name (Glow Worms).

    Check out the photo gallery for some highlights. If anybody needs me I'll be visiting ebay.

    EGG-FIASCO

    Filipino artist Egg Fiasco is in town to work on a charity indoor wall mural for the Bone Marrow Donor Programme, housed within the premises of interior design firm "F-B Eye". I managed to go bug the gentleman "at work" today, and share some snaps of the work with you folks!


    An empty wall space waiting to be filled with imagination
    and imagery (Additional images via the BMDP-Facebook)


    I shall not reveal more than I have here (and there's some more to be done too), and folks can look forward to viewing these in person, for when the space opens for viewing in the New Year. Meanwhile, check out this particular blogpost, where "Egg" gets interviewed, and as well you get to see the empty wall before the mural went up!

    As well, Eggfiasco will be apart of the crew for SOLIDARITY21 @ The Substation happening this weekend as well, so this is your chance to meetup with the dude!
