TOMICA AT-M6 and First Order AT-AT Review

Tomica AT-M6 First Order AT-AT

One of my favorite scenes in Episode VIII The Last Jedi is the battle at Crait, where old master Luke Skywalker faces Kylo Ren for a lightsaber duel. But before that, another iconic scene from The Empire Strikes Back was somehow brought to life in this movie through the new mech walkers: The AT-M6 and the First Order AT-AT.

Star Wars The Black Series: AT-AT Pilot

at-at driver pilot black series
Even though this review should have been published months ago, the AT-AT pilot/driver is still a very nice figure to have in your 6" Black Series collection. He is one of the most iconic characters in the Empire Strikes Back movie that's why you can find him here again in my blog where I got the chance to review the AT-AT Driver ArtFX Kotobukiya statue.

Celebrate Your Kid's Birthday At Max's Restaurant

Max's Restaurant Birthday Party

Recently we were invited to Chickie Boy's birthday party at Max's Restaurant, Scout Tuason branch. Chickie Boy is Max's very own mascot and I have no idea yet how old is he now. Well Max's Restaurant has been in the business since 1945 so we can assume that Chickie Boy just turned 72 years old. Hmmm... I maybe wrong because he's just a boy.

Elvis Presley Figure From '68 Comeback Special by Enterbay & Kotobukiya

enterbay kotobukiya artfx elvis presley review

One of my best childhood memories is a family video of me doing an Elvis Presley impersonation wearing a black leather jacket with a guitar while lip-syncing a song from his concert. I'm still a huge Elvis fan and a week won't pass without listening to his music.

Now that I am starting to shift on sixth scale toy figures, of course looking for an Elvis Presley figure is on my list. I don't own too much memorabilia of the King of Rock and Roll but having the closest representation of him is enough for me to look at everyday while listening to his timeless songs.
