Kamen Rider Decade final episode 31 trailer and introducing the new Kamen Rider Double promo

This has got to be the shortest rider series which runs for only 31 episodes this year. Well, hope the new Kamen Rider Double (W) has a better story though it's intriguing for me (IMHO) to see the Ultimate Rider's War in Decade.
Kamen Rider Double (仮面ライダーW(ダブル) or Masked Rider Double W is the upcoming eleventh series in the Heisei period run of the Kamen Rider Series and the twentieth Rider series overall. It is set to premiere following the finale of Kamen Rider Decade on September 6, 2009

Plot Summary
In the ecologically-minded city of Fūto (風都, translated as "Wind Capital"), there are many windmills and the people live in harmony. However, the Sonozaki Family (園咲家) sell mysterious USB memory sticks called Gaia Memories to criminals who use them to become monsters called Dopants, committing crimes with the police force powerless to stop them. The hardboiled (or rather half-boiled) detective Shotaro Hidari works with the mysterious Phillip who possesses the true Gaia Memory. Using their own Gaia Memories, Shotaro and Phillip use the Double Driver belts to transform and combine into Kamen Rider Double to fight the Dopant menace.

Here's the promo video for the new Kamen Rider Double (W) after the trailer for Kamen Rider Decade final episode 31.

AVATAR official trailer released today!!

AVATAR takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery, as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilization. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist. Now, after four years of actual production work, AVATAR delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.

Opening 18th Dec 2009 Worldwide
Director:James Cameron
Cast:Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, Sigourney Weaver

STGCC 2009 coverage on 14-Aug (friday)

Today's crowd was quite moderate, not too rowdy, ample of walking space but heard a lot of exclusives were sold out today.
I guess the weekends crowd will be huge, so i'll probably skip them :P
For those who's going this weekends, I'll drop you a quick access note. Take the Lift to level 4, which is next to The Food Republic. If everything else fail, you can just follow the signage via the escalators.
Now, let the photos do the talking :P

Toy shops in Bangkok (updated in 11 August 2009)

My last trip to Bangkok (Thailand) was in July 2007, time flies and there's several changes to the toy shops since my last visit. See my previous post HERE

Here's my recommendations if you want to go toy hunting in Bangkok:
**Note: most toy shops closes between 6pm-7pm so plan your timing. And mostly the price are more ex than SG or HK too, so unless you are getting that rare collection you've missed else these places is just another walkabout to quench your toy thirst while away from home.

(A) Pirom Plaza (near Chinatown) **highly recommended**
Be ready to spend at least 1 whole day here!!
921 Mahachai Rd., Wangburapapilom
Panakhon, BKK 10120
Opening hours: 11:00am-6:00pm
Housed a huge collections of mainly gasphon collectibles and some misc action figures.
The one and only place i know in Bangkok which is for toy collectors like Singapores CSC and Hongkong's CTMA center.
Pure Otaku's heaven like Tokyo Aikihabara!!
There's also a lot of shops selling cameras equipments, card games and video games.
There's also a few scattered toy shops in Bangkok as well, but they are not so concentrated like Pirom Plaza.
(B) Fantasia @ Siam Discovery Center
444 Phayathai Road, Pathumwan
3rd Floor
(C) Iamtoys Exclusive @ MBK Centre
Address: 444 MBK Centre
