Elite Force

This is another set of toys that I put off buying because I know they will be reduced to a more reasonable price. I like the detail in the sculpt but the articulation is very basic. They can serve the purpose of a military everyman.



I didn't saw a lot playsets aside from the buggy and parachute, which I don't find interesting. I would have wanted to see their version of a Humvee or a Blackhawk.

The not so giant Ant-man

See, it's not so bad to get a toy people have been talking about last year just now, especially if one got it for a good price, lower that anything sold online. This build-a-figure Ant-man was released along with the 6-inch Marvel Legends line, something I don't collect, so the only way I could get this is through the secondary market. Although I wanted the figure, I wasn't willing to pay the unreasonable prices online sellers where asking for it. Here's why.


This 10-inch Ant-man is still short for the 4-inch line, what more for the 6-inch figures? Any self-respecting 6-inch Marvel collector would find a better option for an Ant-man. When they realize that it's in bad scale, 6-inch collectors will let go of this 10-inch figure. Since the 4-inch figures is a dying scene, at least for the Marvel-Hasbro line, the demand won't be high. 


If you're still hunting for this figure, just wait it out until you get an good deal. You'll live even without one anyways.

How beautiful


Latte has simple rules to live by: surround yourself with everything good and beautiful, treat problems as if they don't exist, and never have an empty bottle of happy pills.

Today, she found a note that says, "It's over between us." She paused for a while, looked around the room and said to herself, "How beautiful these empty chairs are!"
