Action Figures, Not Dolls

Kaiyodo's RevolTech series of figures are simply the best thing around. Ever since picking up their first batches of releases which include the Eva-01 from Neon Genesis Evangelion, I've been looking forward to seeing other figures that will eventually make its way into the market. Their latest relases include the popular character Gurren Lagann from the series Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. After having it for only a couple of days, I find that the figure is perhaps the most articulated figure out of the ones that I have now.

As if that wasn't enough, I have set up orders for two more figures, one of which is out now but I anxiously await for its arrival. At this time, my monitors have several figures sitting atop, all posed in some way or another to give them that "cool" look. Soon the problem will be where and how to place the next one.

Hearing Heavenly Stars

I'm usually out of touch to some of the latest craze. But eventually they make their way to get my attention. And when that happens, it becomes my current hit of the moment. Usually this is a good thing, as I always needed something different to keep things interesting. It could not have come at a better time when things seem too bland in certain areas which I will not mention. It came to my attention when I was idling and sitting on IRC and pretty much fell in love in the upbeat popsy melody that had such an uplifting style and rhythm. With lyrics to complement it, I then see that it is the music that was featured in the Wii game "No More Heroes." But its real first appearance was in the game Lumines. Yet while the music will catch your ears, its music video complements so well that it goes hand in hand. So for this blog post, I share with those who stumble upon this page to view what has become my current spur-of-the-moment hit.
