Mr. Dean 2008

This a easy kit-bash with Hot Toys 12" CIA commandos GOI figure and Saturday Toys clothes.
Apparently, this headscuplt does resembles a celebrity which is in heaven isn't it? :)
So i've decided to named him, Mr. Dean 2008 reincarnated version.

Mr.Dean is an actor, model and photographer equipped with the latest modern camera

One of Mr. Dean's favorite fashion shots

Cairo Cab Confessions

Was in Egypt for a holiday break recently. After i get home, the 1st "good" news i heard is the sg taxi fare hikes...sigh..anyway, personally if our taxi driver know how to complain and drives like the taxis in Cairo does, I won't mind paying the hikes just to shut their mouth. But now with the hike on-going, i think they will complain even more about the drop of passengers..HAH..what a bunch of craps.

Below is a video on Cairo Cab Confession, enjoy the crap while you can, it's going to be the new conversation in town among the taxis and commuters here for a while.

medicom 12inch kamen rider kabuto

This is really a sad toys, so sad i dont have inspiration for a wallpaper :(

So far the above areas looks ok

Face is ok to me as well

Baddd!!paint job

Character design was 100%
Toy playing was quite bad, some part tends to drop off due to poor velcro..for this toys i can only give a 3/5
QC rating for medicom 0%, after such a long wait and high expectation, this is not a standard quality product from medicom. Hopefully the dark kabuto is better.
