Hatsune Miku Figma

This is a gorgeous Figma Hatsune Miku action figure that I got for Calixa's birthday.

I have to admit that I've been wanting one for myself for a long time now…. Its fully articulated, with some cool accessories, lots of details, nice paint. Lovely!

Hatsune Miku

We love Hatsune Miku!

Yes... she is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media. Hatsune Miku is portrayed as a 16-year-old girl with long turquoise pigtails. She looks cool, has a positive attitude and sings some of the best songs produced of the last few years.

Not surprisingly, my girlfriend's daughter (Calixa) also fell in love with Hatsune and now has a cool collection of Hatsune Miku collectibles.

Here's a statue of everyone's favourite vocaloid.

Before going to the movie, we spend some time at the arcade. Lots of fun but sadly there aren't that many left around here.

Lego Disney Princess

My girlfriend's daughter just got the Lego Disney Princess Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle (#41062).

This is a very cool set with 292 bricks including three minifigures; Elsa, Anna and Olgaf. Overall its a nice looking set with a cool staircase, some very nice transparent bricks and cool accessories.

"Let it go! Let it goooooooooooooooo!"

Lego Minifigures 13 : Unicorn Girl

If I remember correctly, every series has a minifigure in an animal suit. This time its a Unicorn. Simple design but very nice.

“It must have been a magical unicorn! Yay!”

Some people don’t believe in unicorns, but the Unicorn Girl is out to prove them wrong! Whether she’s prancing through mist-covered meadows, whinnying outside of windows and then running away giggling, or just throwing glitter everywhere, she’s determined to show the world that unicorns really exist.

The Unicorn Girl is always happy and optimistic. Nothing gets her down, not even people who say that she’s being silly and unicorns are only a myth. She just does something nice and thoughtful for them when they aren’t looking. Then, when they ask who did it, she smiles and says that it was a unicorn!

Lego Minifigures 13 : Hot Dog Man

The new Lego Minifigures 13 series came out recently and there was two of them we couldn't find. Lucky for us, my brother and fellow Lego addict got them for us.

First was Hog Dog Man! Now that is a funny looking minifigure. There is even mustard on it. Love it.

“Try me with mustard, ketchup, relish or sauerkraut!”

Can you guess what the Hot Dog Man’s favorite food is in the entire world? That’s right – it’s hot dogs! He loves hot dogs so much that he’s made his very own hot dog outfit so he can travel around reminding people just how tasty hot dogs are.

If it’s a sunny summer day at the park, the ball game, the movies or the zoo, that’s where you’ll find the Hot Dog Man dancing and singing about the wonders of cooked sausages in a bun. His greatest dream is to one day find out exactly how hot dogs are made. Best of luck, Hot Dog Man!

WWE Slam City

We got the WWE Slam City DVD, which features all of the 26 episodes. Lots of fun but a little too short. Still worth picking up if you are a fan.

Lego DC Comics Super Heroes

We got the Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League movie on combo Blu-ray and DVD the day it came out.  Its a fun film, well animated and we laughed a couple of times. The coolest thing about it is that we got the awesome Batzarro minifigure.

And since we never got it when it came out, we finally bought Lego Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite on Blu-ray.
