Kerberos Todome - Red Spectacles 20th Anniversary (12-inch Medicom Real Aaction Heroes)

This is one of those figures where it hits you right between the eyes the moment you see it. I have no idea about this character. I don't even know that it is Japanese-inspired. All I knew that this dude looks really cool and menacing. With the gask mask and the steely red eyes, nothing can touches this dude.

This dude is a member of the Kerberos, soldiers in "Protect Gear" (German military style armour suits). It is something like an elite task force. You just don't want to mess with this bunch of guys. This dude appeared in the Japanese movie, Red Spectacles.

This is the Medicom version. In fact, there is another version produced by Takara. Maybe one day I would lay my hands on that. For the time being, be silent and still. The Red Spectacles are watching.

Lola (12-inch Triad Toys)

This is something spontaneous and totally unplanned. Don't ask me why I ended up with this figure but there is something about hot girl in school uniforms with guns and teddy bear. What more can you ever ask? Gunn For Hire. G4H. Get it?

Even The Kinks had a song called "Lola". OK, that's about a trans but who cares. And EDF? Totally awesome. By the way, I had a hard time (not hard-on) trying to put in the hands holding the bomb and match, so I decided not to try harder. Might just end up breaking the hands.

Oh my lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola.

Spawn - Spawn 11 - Series 31 (6-inch McFarlane)

I'm very fond of this figure. Spawn in full-on mood for destruction. Just look at the massive collection of weapons he is carrying. Not to mention this totally fantastic pose. You don't mess with Spawn. You know he is loco. He can turn you off just like a switch.

Wings Of Redemption - The Gathering


Spawn - Wings Of Redemption - Spawn Reborn (6-inch McFarlane)

Wings Of Redemption is one of my favourite series from Spawn. I mean anything with wings is awesomely cool. This is a different version (reborn, get it?) of WOR. Guess what, the wings look like bat-wings, don't you think so? Not only that, on closer inspection, you'll realised that it is purple in colour and the wing-sculpt is highly detailed. Really magnificent and majestic piece of work from McFarlane. Bat-Spawn, anyone?
