Loot arrived one day and found out it belonged to neither my Ebay crazy housemates or myself, but in fact, it was addressed to my brother. Being a console gamer lover (not my fault!), he bought his own Square Enix/Konami Metal Solid Peacewalker: Big Boss (Naked Snake). To me, its like magic, coz he got really motivated to take pics of his latest loot. This is a bit different, because this one happens to be his life long favourite! Which is somehow different when compared to crazy otakus who buy everything kawaii whether he needs it or not. Haha! I choose my loot, because i have watched/read it and liked them characters, pretty much runs the same with my bro. The good thing is, now i can borrow a ‘Naked Snake’ when i want ^^

These pics were altered using Adobe Light Room 2. Spot the difference? Not really, just tweaking and patching it up =3

Now this wasnt my loot! (Crimotaku)

MG Peacewalker's Naked Snake/Big Boss

Look at that face! Detailed with wrinkles!

Ball joints are perfectly hidden. No screws or figma like joints!

Didnt expect mGlacius to make a comic skit ^^

Even got my nekos involved to amplify kawaii-ness!!

As long as u have a tactical shield, u can avoid the Cactuar's deadly 10,000 needles attack! (1 needle = 1dmg)

With a face like that, its like, they painted a face and gave it realistic plastic sugery!

The horribad FREE loot given by fake Stormtrooper ADIDAS sneaker sellers ^^

Yep! Those were the bribes given by the anonymous fake sneaker sellers that try to sell the Limited Edition ADIDAS X STAR WARS sneakers online. If you read my journeys as the Otaku Trooper or at least browsed the Crimotaku/UOW blog, u’d see the massive difference. The internet is an awesome place to find what u cannot find  near u, but always remember there will always be scammers in our world. Cheap retarded schmucks who try to exploit the trust of our internet community and con the world of their money.

There will be rempits (Malaysian gangsters), gangsters, and degenerates, but its human nature to be greedy .. and stupid. But thats just how the world works in a nutshell ^^

Supanova Sydney 2010 took place from the 18th to the 20th June, on the 22nd i was scheduled to fly back to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to attend to some legal personal business. It was last minute planning and it had to be done. Going back to Kuala Lumpur all fatigued and all that, i met up with the Danny Choo readers in KL and bought them lunch at Pizza Hut ^^ Within those two short days i bought some upgrades to my armor and camera. Came back, ended up buying a wireless remote (cheaper than Malaysia, coz its original) .. and with the combined effort of my gorilla tripod, that drive of inspiration turned into this Nendo/Figma Tale ^^ Titled FLASH!

Here ya go, Ojousama!
Whats this?
Click! CLICK!! Click?!
Must i really type out the FLASH? -_-
Remember when taking pics of cosplayers, not too much flash! Its annoying!

If anyone wondered why these pics were like this, its because it was a different camera and it was meant to be this way. Like duh, there are cameras that took pictures in 4:3, ya know? But we all know that now, dont we? ^^ Its not like i took pics with these using my eyeballs and USB-ed these images out of my ear to the laptop. There is always a reason in everything i do and say, if i wanted help, i’d ask for it. Simple and easy like 1-2-3 => And dont even try to give me the idea to crop it to a widescreen layout, i wasnt born yesterday. I take pics as it is, then Photoshop/LightRoom them. Its what i do!

Kuala Lumpur, prob the biggest city in Malaysia. Country of humid Summer-like weather with monsoons. I visited KL during the time of the monsoon so it rained a bit. But like some foreigners there, especially when u adapted to Tasmanian cold, we just loved the warm rain. Not too hot, not too cold!

Sharing some pics of my journey back to KL while meeting up with some of the otaku comrades ^^ During my 2 day stay in KL, i wasted no time getting things running, from meetups to getting loot!

The people i met were: WiseFreeman, ZamsJournal, lerrymaru, KururugiSeiryuu, Laniemon

Landed in LCCT (one of the two airports in Malaysia) and headed straight for Port Dickson. This was my view.

One thing i didnt notice was .. red lights means its full, green means the lot is vacant! KL is seriously infested with cars, and this makes car parking way better!

The loot i found at Lowyat Plaza. Good place for electronics. Bought some stuff for my camera and armor upgrades and etc

The DC Reader/Otaku Comrades i met in Kuala Lumpur. Ended up having lunch at Pizza Hut near Lot10. The picture is blur coz i asked someone to take a pic for us, i knew i should have given him a crash course!

Finally at the Melbourne Airport on the way back.

Playing with the Fisheye lens when i got back.

Then playing with the Macro lens!

How close can i go?

Neko shots!

Angry neko shots!

Trying to get close to Kyouka's bell, and yep, thats TIMTAM =3

When u see detail .. U DO SEE DETAILS .. makes me wanna clean my room again! The dust of 10 days when i was gone since Supanova >.<

And thats about it, a quick trip back home, and back to my humble home of high tech-ness. Sometimes i wonder how can they stand doing business with fax machines and all that. I mean, its the age of PDF and email attachments and such! Well, I love Malaysia has a hometown, but it seriously needs to get into the tech savvy world >.<

The blog is undergoing some restructuring by Shazsteel, so i did not post this here till he was done, but like always, i dont like delaying and forgetting so here it goes anyways! Presenting this Nendo/Figma Tale of DC Reader, Major Gravy’s Daft Punk build up for Supanova Sydney 2010.

Whats going on?

Finally my own Wheel Walker! And its red!

Dont leave me!

Wait for me!

Dont u just love new toys?

Face plate and back head piece for the Daft Punk helmet

We tried experimental vacuum foaming for fun

Schematics to the hand plates.

See anything?

Its all black!

Today, intended to go to Spotlight to buy the materials to finish up my TK vest MKII for the Heroes 4 Kids meeting i am attending this Saturday. Members were told to bring their costumes to show the new members what we are all about. Very similar to the 501st Legion, H4k (Heroes 4 Kids) is a non profit organization who does things for charity. This kind of organization makes it possible for cosplayers to appear in public without a convention. Being able to do what we love doing, being in character in costume! But before all that, i have to finish the alterations to my TK vest MKII in my previous post.

At around noon, i was scheduled to meet the Kamina cosplayer (Gurren Lagann), lets call him CH for now at the otaku shop called Niko Niko. By the time i arrived, he already bought a bathroom poster for his friend’s birthday present. Met up, had lunch, then comrade Wakaranai called and decided to meet up. Ended up going to my place (after Wakaranai aka Washi, decided to buy a poster from Niko Niko). Swapped anime, gave Washi his ordered Limited Edition Lucky Star Shrine Maiden loot from Irudono and etc. Had a couple of rounds of Super Street Fighter IV with CH.

Gathering at Otaku Trooper’s Hideout
Loot brought along by the fellow otakus
CH showing me his Limited Edition FSN Novel Game
LE FSN comes with a nice hardcover and a colored artbook
Lucky for me, my laptop has a decent amount of USB ports
When Black (PC) meets White (Mac). Both HDDs owned by CH. Used for anime swapping.
Not only did he bring HDDs but also some of his anime DVDs. Notice kyouka puchi being harassed in the back >.<
The figmas and nendos also wanted in on some camera whore action
There was a time when Saber was just a game character, but it has come a long way. From novel game to anime/manga to figma.
Shiro was also released as a figma, cannot wait for Rider to be released in June as well. June is FSN loot month for nendos and figmas!

Today I went to K&D to buy some hardware, it all started with just thinking  of getting a nice table lamp for myself and the puchis for their photography. But being a tool nut and a computer geek and all, i tend to give in to my crafty needs when i enter a hardware shop. Its like girls at a supermarket sale, but involves guys and hardware! I was planning to do this post on a later date but because someone on twitter +1-ed that i should do another Nendo/Figma Tales, the idea hit me! The idea was fresh, the mood and environment was perfect! Perfectly dark!

So here we go, night photography in the pitch black and also showing off the loot i acquired in May 2010!

Been blogging for a while, and i dont mean for eons or all eternity. If i last recall, it was in 2009 when i started blogging again after a long retirement (because i joined the work force!) .. but the time has come for me to move on .. and merge into a website that is run by 3 otakus! Yeah .. sure .. the URL may seem like DOTA is in it .. but .. our new blog is called ..

Unlimited Otaku Works

We are trying to think of a banner, and would love if other willing otakus out there would help us make a banner too! Intending to have a banner that rotates among a series of banners made by comrades!

See ya comrades on the other side! I mean .. site!!
