Jakks Pacific's 31" DARTH VADER

Giant Darth Vader
"You don't know the power of the dark side." -Darth Vader
Now here is one popular villain/hero when it comes to science fiction characters - Darth Vader! I've been a Star Wars fan ever since I was a kid and my first Star Wars action figure was the 1983 Kenner's Return of the Jedi Darth Vader. From teenage to adulthood I have collected various forms of Vaders until one day I saw a giant size Darth Vader being sold online. Having read and watched some figure reviews, I was finally convinced to have one. So after a couple of months searching for this figure locally, I got mine from Toys R Us.

Marvel Select THOR : The Dark World Figure Review

Marvel Select Thor Dark World

I got this Thor figure from one of my favorite ebay stores who offers free shipping and discount. I regret taking a photo of it while it was still in the package because of excitement I guess :-)

Anyway presenting Marvel Select Thor : The Dark World! I was actually waiting for the right time to buy a more good looking Thor since I really don't have one until Marvel Select heard my prayer. For me, this figure is the best among the previous releases. Why? Read on and I'll tell you why.

Neca E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Galactic Friend E.T.

Neca E.T. Galactic Friend
Neca's E.T. Galactic Friend Series 1
Here is one awesome figure that brings back memories from a 1982 movie-E.T. which means Extra Terrestrial. I actually saw this Steven Spielberg film not on the big screen but on a betamax player! The unique look of this alien creature that represents ignorance, friendliness and good heart made me say "I want one!" I even remember my mother who calls my uncle E.T. because of his face resemblance which never fails to make every one laugh.

There were already E.T. toys in the 80s being sold in cinemas but of course not as good as the new ones. They come with a blinking finger and an illuminated heart between its chest. It was powered by a 9 volt square battery.

Welcome To My Toy Room!

steve's toy room

 Hello visitor! I'm glad you took time to visit my humble blog.

My name is Steve. I started collecting Star Wars action figures as early as 9 years old but when I reached my teens, toy collecting was set aside until I lost my collections. Now that I'm a father of two lovely daughters, it seems the little boy inside me was awakened to go back into toy collecting.

Since this is my first post, I hope you will come back next time to check out my new posts. I will be featuring my Star Wars stuff, DC and Marvel, Neca and McFarlane and so on. I will be giving my reviews on old and new toy stuff that I have purchased recently.

We'll be also talking about the beauty and art of toy collecting, tips and guidelines on buying and more.

So here we go, let's go to my toy room!
