May’n – Styles / Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee Emotion figures

Just got my copy of May’n First Full Album cover called Styles today. I’m pretty sure Bagman will be dieing to get it later on in the mailbox. There are many new tracks inside which I recently got to hear them live at AFA09 on the weekend in Singapore. Well compared to her previous Mini Album this was more to original style of May’n. The only anime like tracks in this album is are Kimi Shinitamou Koto Nakare (OP theme SHANGRI-LA) and Welcome To My FanClub’s Night! -Styles version- (OST Macross Frontier). Surprisingly Pink Monsoon wasn’t included maybe because it was produced earlier and specifically for the new Macross Frontier Movie:The False Songstress (Diva) which is out in cinemas throughout Japan.

AFA09 – Win a BANDAI Sushi Maker

Sushi making is not really that easy unless you have the tools and the proper skills to make em. I’ve made my own sushi’s before when I was living in Australia and I found it really fun. But then it’s quite a mess and there’s a lot of stuff which I need to wash after that. Now BANDAI has made your sushi making life more easier by designing the Kawai Sushi Maker. It looks like a toy but it actually makes really good sushi plus you could design your sushi too. Cool right?

Macross Frontier’s VF-25F Decultured

Can’t get enough of Ranka Lee? Think your new VF-25F Valkyrie needs to get some ~Kira*? Well Bandai has released a special Ranka Lee Deculture Decal for the VF-25F. Talking about pimpin’ my ride, this is pimp my Valkyrie just with out those sound system and nos tanks you could fit in. I quite like the design they gave it and the outlook looks really like a Valkyrie is going to perform on stage for Ranka-chan. I recently got this baby from the shops earlier this week but after I had my eyes on this I was thinking to myself, should I get one more if they were going to release a Sheryl Nome version.

00 Gundam + 0 Raiser + Celestial Being Action Base = Pwnage

“All I want for Christmas is my Twin GN-Drivers…” Few weeks ago the 1/100 00-Gundam was released and I almost bought it. After reading a few articles where they will release the special 00 Raiser set, I was quite relief a bit or else I’ll start to pull my hair for buying it. Well, even if I had bought it I would consider selling the thing to my cousin who so happens to be a Gundam collector (*grin*). The thing that really caught my attention was the GN Drive gimmick LED lights, makes me wonder how it would look like when I turn it on in the middle of the night.

Macross Frontier’s VF-25F 1/72 Messiah Valkyrie Alto Custom

The VF-25F Messiah Valkyrie Alto Custom is right now one of the most talked about mecha (other than 00 Gundam 1/100) released by Bandai for the 25th Anniversary of the Macross franchise. When I was a little kid I bought almost of the little Valkyries which were from the original Macross series. I remember bringing them all over the place and my mum would start telling me to leave my stuff in the car. I wouldn’t listen and later I realize my stuff was lost. I will always remember how much I loved the Valkyries compared to Gundams. The VF-25F instantly caught my attention when it was released and I was wondering how good it was so I decided to look around for some samples and design by others and I’m quite fascinate with the workmanship of this model.
