set name: the shellraiser street chase
theme: teenage mutant ninja turtles
come with a shellraiser and a pizza delivery van.
the shellraiser has an openable roof, a shootable cannon, raisable wheels and hidden rail wheels.
minifigs included a leonardo minifig, a michelangelo minifig, a foot soldier minifig, a dogpound minifig and the kraang minifig.
overall design is great.
Amazingly, it seems like some producers out there are remembering Ano Natsu actually has other characters besides the stunning Ichika--though it's an easy mistake to make. For those looking for something a bit different however, CM'S Corporation's, Gutto Kuru line is restocking its Kanna Tanigawa.
However, she's a bit bland compared to her partner Ichika. With a blue swimsuit, short blue hair, and a blue handgun, well. It's all a bit monotone for my tastes, and an unattractive hairstyle overall doesn't help the appeal. I do like the star design on her bottoms, at least!
Apparently she's being bought in droves though if a restock is demanded, so is anyone out there buying her instead of Ichika? If so, you can get your second chance now for about ¥6,800.
In addition to the metallic silver series arriving on the new “Themes 2013″ card designs … “Dolly P.” sends us additional photos of TRU in Germany-Austria that have the Australian cards (presumably) that are NOT supposed to go to Europe. First, in Europe, they are not supposed to get the Australian cards as they are [...]
Its been 5 months since we last took a look at Shibuya - it was sweltering back then but its freezing right now slap bang in the middle of Winter.
If you are visiting Tokyo then Shibuya is certainly a place that you dont want to miss - filled with energy and home to the busiest crossing in the world. Get off at Shibuya station on the JR line and just wander around to start exploring!
First photo - Shibuya crossing. These photos taken before Christmas by the way.
This photo taken about 20 years ago in the same spot at Shibuya crossing - you would have already seen this photo in the How Discovering Japan Changed My Life post.
Going to leave you to the rest of Shibuya to wander around - enjoy!
Which do you prefer ladies - 2D or 3D?
Never did get round to seeing the Richard Gere flick Hachi - how was it?
View of Shibuya crossing from the Starbucks.
Shibuya 109 - everything for the ladies and the only thing for men are toilets.
What Japanese folks eat for new year - read all about Osechi here.
It says "Information Center" but they dont give the sort of information that you would be expecting - its actually for folks who are looking for some hanky panky...
Lawsons Vocaloid "Akikoloid." Who are your fave MMD modellers?
For folks who are fans of cigarettes and salt.
How many of you try out the UFO catchers when in Japan?
Are these thingies popular in your neck of the woods too?
And the green lighted hotel is where some of that hanky panky is likely to be executed ^^;
Mandarake Shibuya - I got a whole photo post on that just for you.
How many of you play instruments? The musical variety I mean - not the ones attached to your body.
At the Gunpla section in Tokyu Hands.
And here is 109 for mens - you should be able to pick up quite a few fashionable items.
There is a poll embedded in this article.

And you can check out what Shibuya looks like in the Summer!

Two more THE DREAMER paints from Squink's own original resin sculpt have surfaced, with the above being the fully-painted "Cobalt" and the below, the Titanium Gold version. Both are 1/1 versions, including the prior posted "Antiqued Glow" Version.
No firm release date nor price point as yet, besides the previously posted news that the first x 5 will go on sale early Feb on squink.bigcartel.com.
VISEone shares official imagery of his next TUBE MONSTER series - tentatively planned for a Summer release. And while the earlier edition/s looks all-so-placid and enjoying their time - this new incarnation looks like it's got a hella "bite"! Wolfgang adds: "Here I show you some exclusive WIP shots of the character development. It's not sure which one we will pick for the final production yet
For a third consecutive year, K’NEX will continue its quest for future thrill ride innovators, expanding the Great Thrill Ride Build-Off competition this year to include three Cedar Fair parks. The contest is open to all classrooms and student groups in grades 6 through 12 and will run through April 8. Students are challenged to [...]
Mrs. Nerd asked me the day after watching the last Fringe episode how I felt about it. We went on to talk about our various thoughts on the series and so forth. It was a quite enjoyable conversation. Thinking about it, the conversation contained none of the usual questions about series finales. We didn’t discuss [...]
With Art Stage Singapore opening January 24th, here are a few preview images of both the preview and setting-up of the event, with the above AIBUDAO sculpts courtesy of Jeffrey Koh's lens (SGD$40,000 for the red sculpt in the foreground, folks! And add SGD$20K each time you size-up), and the below from the Art Stage Singapore's Facebook.

Thanks to Mr Elljay on Weibo who has posted some new images of FansProject Breakdown in robot mode. The figure show he is based on the same Lamborghini Countach as the G1 toy, but clearly has upgraded articulation through out the toy. As to be expected, we will be seeing all of the Stunticons offered with an eventual combiner set that will pay homage to the G1 Menasor in the ultimate way that we have seen with other unofficial combiners recently. Check out the FansProject Breakdown image below for more details.
Many thanks to HK-TF forums member zeroeo who has posted lots of in-hand images for the soon to be released Transformers Bot Shots action figure. Shown are the new 3-pack sets including: Bumblebee, Shockwave and Skyquake as well as the Cliffjumper, Brawl and Dirt Boss sets. Also we have new images of the Wave 3 Launchers including G1 Optimus Prime and Bumblebee and the Super Bot Sunstorm. Check out the images of the new Transformers Bot Shots toys below.
I guess we should have this one coming, with the penchant for repaints that Transformers have always maintained, it was just a matter of time before we would get a repaint of the Masterpiece Lambor Sideswipe in yellow colors as the Tiger Track figure. BBTS have just posted a new pre-order page confirming the rumours that have been circling. Look for the figure to be out in June 2013 for with a pre-order price of $99,99 USD. No images yet, just a place holder of the orginal Tigertrack release. Check out the pre-order now at bigbadtoystore.com
One of the hottest items for the Holiday season in 2012 was the Hot Wheels Terrain Twister. It made it onto our ToyXplosion 20 list and we’ve been having a great time playing with it. We took it to our neighborhood school’s park the other day (actually we took two of them) and gave themRead More
Following the news fomr Hobby Ark Toy Store who listed new preorders for the Takara Tomy Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager class Shockwave we have confirmation the figure will be making its way here to the States via Hasbro as well thanks to a new listed posted at BigBadToyStore. Look for the Beast Hunters Shockwave figure to be coming our way in June. No images are shown at this time. We expect to see some soon with Toy Fair coming.

It was last September when we first brought up the upcoming Artist series of kaNO’s Bodega figure. It was also at his solo show, “Cost 2 Coast”, where he revealed the participating artists (Flying Fortress, Tristan Eaton, Pez, TooFly) and the designs as a part of his exhibit. We now...
With the success of the first round of Tube Monsters, VISEone is already at work on the next design! These are just a few concept designs he is working on and may vary by the time of release, which he is hoping to be during the Summer.
