Been a while

Due to some recent changes, i haven't had the time to update my blog.
Will try to find the time to keep this a little more up to date.

More views of the collection

Here are some more pictures from my collection and hobby-room in progress.
The room is pretty much on pause right now, we're working on the living room / dining room at the moment, so it'll take a while before everything is done.

Piece of the day


Little Preview of my new Toyroom

Well, since me and my girlfriend are now living together and we have our own house, i have finally all the space i need to display my toys in a separate room all for myself.
And thanks to my girlfriend for letting me have a big room for my collection!

A little preview here, since I'm still working on my displays and not everything is unpacked.
Just some pics of how it looks now, and i will show you all the end results later on.

Piece of the day


Piece of the day is coming soon!

Will try to show you guys a piece of my collection every day, to keep myself blogging and to show you my awesome collection which I'm very proud of.

And as most of my collection is pretty nameless, if I'm not putting a name with it then either it has no name or I'm not sure of it or in some cases, i don't want to put the name online.

Well, that's clear, let the pics come with each day!

Preview of the New Unidentified Monstrous Organisms by Philip Reed

Since i missed out on the first wave of these outstanding resin monsters, i just could not let that happen again with the latest wave of monsters made by Philip Reed.
As for today, when i checked my usual websites this morning, i came by Battlegrip.com which i usually just check to see what happens in the world of toys, mostly designer toys.

I'm not that big of a designer toy collector, but lately there has been so many cool things going on, and as i like resin more than vinyl for some reason, depending on the toy off course, i just have to keep myself up to date on these things.
And there is no better site to do this than www.battlegrip.com.

Well, enough advertising, let's talk monsters!

As i said before, i missed out on his first wave, mentioned right here, so i just had to keep my eye on Philip's movements in the toy creation business!
So when i heard he was working on his latest wave, i was pretty psyched about it.
And today, finally, came his words "and the sign-up list starts today. If you want one then please comment here or contact me" so you can guess what my next action was.
Exactly, put myself on that list.
Even though i like both of his designs, his latest i like a little bit more than his first.
And he said there will be a third wave which looks even better, so let's wait and see shall we?

As i ordered one of his latest designs, now comes the time to sit back, and wait for it to be delivered to my parents house (there's always someone at home down there)
He made them in different color variations which is really cool, so none of them are the same or at least looks the same.
All the colors are pretty great, however, i do like the yellow-ish one a bit more than the others.
So let's wait and see which one i get, either way I'm satisfied with whatever color I'm getting.

So, check out the flickr account of Philip Reed and keep your eyes on www.battlegrip.com for more cool news and wait for my review on the New Unidentified Monstrous Organisms I'm getting, made by Philip Reed.

Otaking's Collection

Snot Beasts Review

For my first review, i will let you know what i think of the tiny little Snot Beasts that i just got in the mailbox.

Some time ago, i discovered a thread on the octobertoys (toybreak) forum about an artist called oOMoSOo, he made some awesome little figures that looked very great on the pictures i saw there.
You can see the topic right here, as i was already a big fan of homemade resin toys and allready had a few in my collection from different artists, i knew i had to get my a couple of these.
And here they are some time later.

I noticed that even the box in which the little beasts where shipped has some artwork on side, that's great.

Well, after looking at the box for about a minute or two, i decided to open it, since the stuff i wanted was inside of it ;)
And this is what i found inside.

john cena

Really nicely packed, oOMoSOo really made sure the toys couldn't get damaged inside.

john cena

Greatly drawn artwork on the headers.

And off course out of the bags, the tiny beasts got a really good feel about them.
The paintwork is really good, as much as i like glitter, i was more astound of the black and white snot beast, he looks really great with the certain glare in his eyes made by the artist.

As i'm fairly new to blogging, it's hard to come up with more text, so i'll conclude it with another picture of the Snot Beasts on the shelve they currently are together with some other great stuff made by different artists.

john cena

As for the Snot Beasts, they are really great, and i am surprised how good these look going by the size of them, it doesn't look easy to paint and sculpt these tiny little Beasts.
And i do hope oOMoSOo is going to make a lot more of these, i would buy them for sure if he does, as i know a lot of other collectors would.
If you're interested in getting your hands on some of these, make sure to bother oOMoSOo on his blog and beg him to make some more!

My first post !

Well then, my first post on my brand new Blog ;)

As many of you know I'm a big time collector of Masters of the Universe like action figures, such as Galaxy Warriors, Speclatron, Galaxy Heroes and many other lines.
So i will be doing reviews on these as well very soon.
At this moment we're moving house, well, I'm moving out of my parents house, and will be living together with my girlfriend very soon down here in the Netherlands (so excuse any typo's)

And in our house, there will come a hobby-room to display my collection and do my reviews from.
Our priorities lie elsewhere right now, so it'll take a few weeks before i can start buying glass displays and several other furnitures to display my toys in.

Anyway, i hope you all enjoy my toy reviews, as there will come many, from my own knock off collection, to DC figures, to other weird toys and also artists toys or art pieces, whatever you like to call them.
