The Mechanic (No! No! Not Jason Statham) ... ...


Virtually Punisher ... ...


Punisher isn't my favorite and it's not even in my list of "Action Heroes I collect" So, why did I buy this? Well, simple; it's a great posing piece!

Raiden Day ... ...





When it comes to Metal Gear Solid, I'm only more familiar with Snake but I don't remember Raiden. Quick search on Wiki and I realised; I don't know him at all because he was featured in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty which I didn't play.



 Further read has interesting facts as follows which are extracted from Wiki
According to series creator Hideo Kojima, the decision to make a new character replace Solid Snake for most of Metal Gear Solid 2 stemmed from the developer's desire to develop Snake from a third-person perspective instead. Kojima also stated that Raiden's character and its perception by the audience were important to the overall feel of the story. The idea of having a second main character was inspired by the Sherlock Holmes short stories and novels in which the narrator was not the title character, but his friend Dr. Watson. Kojima affirmed that Snake was the game's protagonist instead of Raiden. Yoshikazu Matsuhana, assistant director for the project, was uncertain about this decision; he considered Raiden a "weak-looking character", but decided to follow Kojima.The codename "Raiden" was based on a historical combat aircraft of the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service, the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden.It was initially planned to be written in katakana as "ライデン", but was changed to the kanji form "雷電" because of the original resemblance to Bin Laden's "Laden" in katanana, "ラーディン".[4] The relationship between Raiden and Rosemary was inspired by Kojima's own experiences; their names, Jack and Rose, are a reference to characters in the film Titanic.Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2 is considered to be a representation of the player through the experiences between the player and the character during the game.

Devastator Deconstructed ... ...

This is the final part of my review on Maketoys Giant Type-61.


As mentioned in my earlier post that this is not official Transformers product and thus, this guys go by a different name. They are named after their vehicle form with the number 61 attached.

Wannabe Devastator 2 ... ...

Well, I'm so intrigued by the figure I couldn't help to carry on with Part 2. As mentioned earlier, I have dismantled the gun to form a melee weapon combined with the crane arm.



Devastator Wanabe ... ...


I had always wanted to own Devastator when I was a little boy and when I can afford one, I was particular about articulation and G1 version just doesn't pass my expectations. Of course, you have all the newer version of the Devastator but I still prefer the green heap of metal carnage of yesteryears.
