Teaser - Spawn - WOR2 (16-inch MonToy 5/50)

It is not fully-assembled. Bits and pieces here and there. Here are the teaser pics. More to come soon. And yes, it is not an evil dildo. It is the base of a cool statue. Just that everybody knows dildo is more fun than a base of a statue. Right?


Poll Of The Day: WTF Is This?

I guess an "evil dildo" sounds and looks better than say, a piece of art or a base of a statue. We are all perverts.

Art - 25%
Deformed plant - 0%
Evil dildo - 50%
Optical illusion - 0%
Base of a statue - 25%

T-800 - Pescadero Escape (6-inch Neca)

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year aka Spring Festival aka Lunar New Year to everybody.

With all the hype about 1/6 figures (12-inch), sometimes it is good to be brought down to earth and take a look at the many 6-inch figures around. 6-inch figures are cheap. You give them the benefit of doubt for the slack paintjob and you don't get critical on them unlike 1/6 figures.

The movie, Terminator 2 (T2) is a classic. No doubt about that and T-800 (Pescadero Escape) is a neat figure. Pretty good paintjob. Not much on articulation below the waist but for me, that doesn't matter because as long as it looks like Arnie (T-800). In fact, the Arnie likeness is quite stunning.

Even the the jacket is filled with bullet holes (just like Mark "Gor" aka Brother Mark - Chow Yun-Fat from A Better Tomorrow). There is only one complaint (one which many would missed out). One of the sunglasses' stem does not reach the frame. haha.... Apart from that, this is one good figure. Iconic to say the least.

Broken ankle.

NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED.
There have been enquiries from my mates on what happened to me. Well......

I recently broke my right ankle. Freak fall during a round of paintball game. Multiple fractures. "Unforseen circumstances". That is why there are very few updates and many items waiting on the queue.

Two surgeries and a total of 8 screws and 1 plate. I realised that I have ridiculously high pain threshold. Been there, done that. Things are looking good......



Dec 13th, 2009. Probably I fell when my right leg got stuck in a ditch and my body turned one way, and the right foot turning the opposite way. And I remembered my ankle then looked exactly like Felipe's. Felipe is a fullback for Brazil's national football them who broke his ankle recently.



Dec 13th, 2009. Right after the freak fall (around noon). The officer-in-charge re-positioned my ankle back to its rightful location.


Dec 13th, 2009. Initially went to a clinic, thinking it was a bad-ass sprain. Doctor at clinic looked shocked and asked me to go for a X-ray. I am hardcore. Can you see the fractures?



Dec 15th, 2009. Surgery was conducted around 9pm, Dec 13th.




Dec 18th, 2010. First-look after surgery.




Dec 20th, 2009. Right before discharge.



Jan 5th, 2010. Back-slab off. Bandages off.


Jan 21st, 2010. Looking good, eh?

January 25th, 2010. I am Iron Man.

Feb 1st, 2010. Walk with both feet. Partial-weight bearing. 2 crutches.

Feb 8th, 2010. Walk with both feet. Partial-weight bearing. 1 crutch.
