Check out Calvin's Custom x Gate Toys 1/6 scale MOTOPSYCLE: mGT (mobile Gun Tower), BORGHEAD & GUNRUNNER on Kickstarter

Original design 1/6 combat motorcycle, advanced ballistic weapons and cyborg headsculpt by Calvin's Custom, a GATE TOYS Production. Available on Kickstarter (link HERE)

About Calvin:
Throughout 17 years of customizing, amongst many weapon mod, angel and cyborg designs, I have never stopped customizing bikes. In 2016, I created four bikes - two post-apocalyptic Mad Max style, one inspired by the Bat-Pod in The Dark Knight and one inspired by the Moto-Terminator in Terminator 4.

Following the ‘heroes/heroines and their steeds’ tradition - Zorro with Tornado, Ghostrider with Hell Cycle, Wonder Woman with Pegasus, and Barb Wire with her Harley Davidson - I believe a two-wheeled vehicle helps enhance a character's presence and amplify the valor, menace or evilness that the character embodies.

Feedback from collectors and friends reinforced that my creation deserves a name of its own. To me, being a customizer has always been a form of madness, one that involves tearing things apart, constantly aiming for the ‘what-has-never been done’, in ways that ‘have never-been-tempted’. In this spirit, I’ve named this project MOTOPSYCLE: mGT - a weapon of mass destruction on two wheels, the Gran Turismo of war.


MOTOPSYCLE: mGT (mobile Gun Tower)
Specifications: The 1/6 scale MOTOPSYCLE: mGT weights around 1.7kg, is approximately 40cm long, and 20cm tall and wide. It's comprised mostly of different grades of plastic with some alloy parts. Both the eyes of the cyborg skull headlight and the nuclear powered tank on top glow with LED lights powered by lithium battery.

MOTOPSYCLE: mGT (Black Version - shown in above pic) with Weapon System 01, 355USD/set, 30 sets only worldwide

Star Ace Toys 1/6th scale Audrey Hepburn as “Holly Golightly” 12-inch collectible figure

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a 1961 American romantic comedy film directed by Blake Edwards and written by George Axelrod, loosely based on Truman Capote's novella of the same name. Starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, and featuring Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, and Mickey Rooney, the film was initially released on October 5, 1961 by Paramount Pictures.

Hepburn's portrayal of Holly Golightly as the naïve, eccentric socialite is generally considered to be the actress's most memorable and identifiable role. Hepburn regarded it as one of her most challenging roles, since she was an introvert required to play an extrovert.


Star Ace Toys 1/6th scale Audrey Hepburn as “Holly Golightly” collectible figure features: Fully realized authentic likeness of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with accurate facial expression, sculpted hair and detailed skin texture with partial seamless body | 1/6th scale partial seamless body, approximately 29 cm tall with 30 points of articulation | Six (6) interchangeable hands including: pair of open palms, pair of closed palms, left hand for cigarette holder, right hand for handbag

Review II: Hot Toys ALIEN 1/6th scale Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley 12-inch Collectible Figure

continued from previous toy blog post...

I believe Hot Toys founder Howard Chan has an affinity for films from the past. What I mean is that he is still very sentimental and attached to some of the older but popular movies from the 20th Century like Terminator, RoboCop, Back to the Future, The Matrix and the Alien franchise, or else why would he want to get the license to produce figures from an older era when he could easily release newer figures based on the movies that are current and popular now.

When Hot Toys first started producing and releasing their Movie Masterpiece Series (MMS line) back in 2000, the first seven figures released were Kyle Reese and a damaged Terminator from the 1984 Terminator film, followed by three United States Colonial Marine Corps figures (Hicks, Apone and Vasquez) from 1986 Aliens AND John Rambo plus Colonel Trautman from 1985 First Blood II - you can check out the full listing from MMS001 to MMS140 on my blog post HERE.


And after more than 15 years, Hot Toys announced in May 2016 that they would be releasing a Ellen Ripley figure from the 1979 Alien film which arrived more than a year later in November 2017 (as part of my haul, posted HERE). This is my second part action figure review of Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS366 ALIEN 1/6th scale Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley 12-inch Collectible Figure. Ripley comes with a custom flamethrower, frightened version of Jonesy the cat which can be carried in a specially crafted cat carrier box, tracking device, and Alien themed diorama figure stand with Ripley nameplate.

Kotobukiya Tokyo Comic Con 2017 Previews - Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, Resident Evil Leon

To kick off Tokyo Comic Con 2017 Kotobukiya has been posting a number of exclusive product previews: they include Batman - Gotham by Gaslight ARTFX+ Statue, Resident Evil Vendetta Leon S. Kennedy ARTFX Statue, Resident Evil Vendetta Chris Redfield ARTFX Statue, Captain Marvel Bishoujo Statue, and Red Hood Ikemen Statue.


What caught my eye is the Tokyo Comic Con 2017 Preview: Batman - Gotham by Gaslight ARTFX+ Statue. Gotham by Gaslight is a DC Comics one-shot by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, with inks by P. Craig Russell. Gotham by Gaslight is considered to be the first Elseworlds story, where DC Comics heroes are taken out of their usual setting and put into alternate timelines or realities. As a big fan of Mike Mignola's art style, I collected comic books with his art in them. The subject matter was quite wide ranging: there's an Alien Xenomorph story, Wolverine, Superman etc. Batman has more than one story drawn by Mignola.

Toys Works 1/6th scale Saber Master fencing master aka Mace Windu Jedi Master 12" figure

A grim Jedi Master with an amethyst-bladed lightsaber, Mace Windu was the champion of the Jedi Order, with little tolerance for the failings of the Senate, the arguments of politicians, or the opinions of rebellious Jedi. As the Clone Wars intensified, Mace sensed the dark side of the Force at work, and knew the Jedi's enemies were plotting to destroy the Order and end its stewardship of the galaxy.

Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films and voiced by voice-actor Terrence C. Carson in other projects. He appears as Master of the Jedi High Council and one of the last members of the order's upper echelons before the Galactic Republic's fall. He is the Council's primary liaison, although the Clone Wars caused him to question his most firmly held beliefs.


Toys Works Tw005 1/6th scale Saber Master fencing master aka Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu Jedi Master features: highly detailed Head sculpt, 1/6 Scale figure body, Hands x 8 piece, battery powered Lightsaber, Lightsaber Hilt.

Hot Toys MMS366 ALIEN 1/6th scale Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley Collectible Figure Review

This was part of my November 2017 haul (posted on my toy blog HERE)

This Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS366 ALIEN 1/6th scale Ellen Ripley Collectible Figure was supposed to be released Q4 2016 - Q1 2017 but didn't arrive in Singapore until November 2017 which is Q4 2017 which makes it almost a year late. Quite a number of Hot Toys figures have a habit of arriving later than estimated recently, so much so I don't really bother with the projections anymore but just wait for them to turn up. I got my Hot Toys 12-inch Punisher figure even before Daredevil and Daredevil has already been released in many other countries. For the Hot Toys Punisher action figure review, you can check out the posts on my toy blog HERE, HERE and HERE.

Alien is a 1979 science-fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott, and starring Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto. In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma. And the rest, as they say, is history.


Sigourney Weaver portrayed Ripley, the warrant officer aboard the Nostromo. The role of Ripley was Weaver's first leading role in a motion picture, and earned her nominations for a Saturn Award for Best Actress and a BAFTA award for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Role. The producers wanted the Nostromo's crew to resemble working astronauts in a realistic environment, a concept summarised as "truckers in space". According to Ridley Scott, this concept was inspired partly by Star Wars, which deviated from the pristine future often depicted in science fiction films of the time.

TB League 1/6th scale Majestic Crusader 12-inch Female Action Figure - History be damned LOL

The Crusades were a series of religious wars sanctioned by the Latin Church in the medieval period. The most commonly known Crusades are the campaigns in the Eastern Mediterranean aimed at recovering the Holy Land from Islamic rule but the term "Crusades" is also applied to other church-sanctioned campaigns. These were fought for a variety of reasons including the suppression of paganism and heresy, the resolution of conflict among rival Roman Catholic groups, or for political and territorial advantage. At the time of the early Crusades the word did not exist, only becoming the leading descriptive term around 1760.

In the modern age, many liberties are taken. Because of political correctness and its sensitivity towards society, everyone has to thread carefully, watch their tongues and choose their words wisely for fear of offending any particular group of people. History has been tweaked and rewritten for the movies we watch because the films have to cater to every gender and race. For instance, the African Americans did not fight alongside their white American brothers in World War II but had their own Black units. However, in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Steve Rogers fights alongside both black and white American troops. Of course, it's all fiction since there were no superheroes in WWII either. In the film U-571, the Americans are the ones who capture a German Enigma machine in the spring of 1942. In reality, the Enigma was broken at Bletchley Park on 1 June 1941. The British had gotten their hands on an Enigma one year earlier. Now, with some wild imagination, we can have females fighting the Crusades. With long flowing hair even! Hahaha Fantasy Females are certainly the rage at the moment.
