Thinking about that Ryu vs Sagat diorama

Been thinking about you ever since I saw you at the toy store...

SEXY. Unfortunately 500 SGD bucks isnt so easy for me to fork out for a diorama so I have to think twice. And Ive been thinking HARD about it. If I get my bonus salary at the end of this month, I would most definitely bring this piece home and shower tender loving attention on a daily basis.

Im a bit slow on this piece, seems like it was released back in jan this year. Limited to 400 pcs worldwide and standing at 19.5" tall, this Ryu vs Sagat diorama from Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is like every SF fan's wet dream (me included). Only complaint is that Sagat looks abit stiff, but then again he's probably in shock from getting shoryuken-ed and getting a nice oblique scar across his chest and abdominal wall.

Stunning custom 1:2 scale HULK

Haven't been to Statue Forum for some time, saw this stunning 1:2 scale Incredible Hulk.

Man Im loving those weathered jeans. I think the sculptor has a couple of these up on E bay, including a purple pants version. It's 1:2 so its a pretty damn big Hulk you'd be paying for.

What's a Venomsaurus

WTF is a Venomsaurus - that was the first thought that crossed my mind when I saw the teaser on Sideshow's website a couple of weeks ago. They've just released some new pictures of this new statue up for pre orders. I did some research, and apparently, it's off a Marvel spinoff called Old Man Logan. The Venom symbiote spies on Logan bonds with a T-rex (awesomeness!) and pursues him.

Not sure how well this statue will sell though.

Idonkeyphone DIY iPhone Dock

This is awesome.. A DIY miniature model of a Donkey Kong arcade machine that not only looks aesthetically pleasing but also doubles up as an iPhone dock. They should build plastic replicas of this thing - Im loving the idea and the graphics.

Not liking that Prince of Persia Statue

Sideshow's new Premium Format Dastan from Disney's latest Flopbuster Prince of Persia. I can't deny I enjoyed the show, though not as much as I expected to. Seems like the movie's getting some pretty nasty reviews out there. But anyway, Im definitely not loving the statue of Dastan. On top of an awkward pose, blank drugged out stare, it's got a hefty price tag of 300 USD slapped on top of it.

The details are this figure's saving grace, I sure hope the paint job holds in mass production. Bleeding paints would be the last thing you would want to see on top of Dastan's armour.

0:14 - best scene in the show period.

Hot Toys Iron Man Mark V sneak peek

Saw this on the SGcollect forums today.. Couldnt imagine Hot Toys pulling it off given the complexity of the suit, but it looks pretty awesome so far! The only complaint I have is that the suit appears more scalloped, like scales in the real version in the movie:

While the sculpt shown above seems to have the scales appear as grooves in the armour. It's too small to judge and perhaps I may be wrong. Anyhow, Hot Toys nearly always delivers the good stuff (except maybe the whole issue with the BD Ironman head sculpt).
Ive watched the video below about a hundred and times and still, its awesome.

Alternatively, you can watch the optimus prime edition below LOL

Hot toys War Machine

This is an absolutely STUNNING piece from Hot toys. A 1/6th scale (12 inch tall) replica of War Machine from Iron Man 2. The pics are enough to get my salivating. I've already made my pre order 2 months ago with the shops and its taking forever to arrive. Hot toys has a bad habit of teasing us. I may even buy 2 of these just because it looks so awesome.

Some specs off the Hot Toys website:

- Over 36 points of articulations
- Movable and detachable parts on shoulder and waist
- Four (4) pairs of interchangeable palms
+ One (1) pair with improved articulations, movable fingers and light-up repulsors (white light, battery operated)
+ One (1) pair of open palms with light-up repulsors (white light, battery operated)
+ One (1) pair of relaxed palms with light-up repulsors (white light, battery operated)
+ One (1) pair of fists
- Metallic grey flat colored painting on armor
- Special features on armor
+ LED-lighted eyes and heart (red light, battery operated)
+ Articulated flaps at the back of armor on left and right legs

- One (1) articulated shoulder-mounted gatling gun, rotatable and multidirectional
- Two (2) shoulder-mounted cannons with one on left and one on right side
- Two (2) machine guns with one behind left and one behind right forearm

Sculpted by Kojun - top notch work as always.

Halo Assault Rifle NERF gun

Complete with awesome music. Now that's something to brag about. This guy managed to mod a NERF gun to closely resemble an Assault Rifle from Halo.

Papercraft Gears of War Theron Guard

Probably not for the faint hearted. Another crazily complex paper model that would probably take up days of handling tiny bits of paper and attempting to spread glue with trembling hands. Results would be awesome though, if you could have a Theron Guard made of paper to brag about. Alternatively you could just buy this from NECA:
