δ½ ε₯½οΌγ“んにけは!Hello, buddies! 。。 Today, we're doing a review of @diamondcustombricks ' Pretty Bird (aka Black Canary). 。。 As I am not particularly as well-versed with DC characters, I am guessing the outfit she is wearing is her modern outfit. 。。 Starting with the hair: the mould is pretty good and the quality is eerily close to Lego's, further cementing the idea that Diamond Custom Bricks is one of the best custom mould makers out there, second probably only to Bunka (whose moulds are impeccable). This is also pretty accurate to the comic Black Canary's hair and if you don't like Lego's official simplistic approach, you can swap this hair on the official Lego fig. 。。 The face is dual-printed. One side is the battle ready face, while the other side is an alarmed face. Both printings are great (and cute) and really makes this figure a beauty. 。。 As with usual, the figure is printed four sides. Nothing off with the arm printing or the side printing. One thing to note though that the sides and the arms are detailed with metallic gold. As these places are often applied with friction, one has to be careful not to move them too much or rub off the paint. So far, mine has taken quite an abuse and is still in perfect condition. 。。 Most collectors will probably skip Black Canary, given that she already has an official Lego figure, but this figure is a lot of great stuff in a much cheaper price. At the very least, you get a good custom mould head and custom printed face that you can swap onto existing figs. There is also an added Black Canary picture frame, which is not necessary but is a very welcome addition to this great fig. 。。 All in all, an interesting and amazing feat from Diamond Custom Bricks, whose works has proven again that they are the one to watch.
Episode 2.9 - Chunks Team BTS went over to the former location of the X-Mansion to investigate. "Bruce, what have you found there?" asked Red Tony. 。。 "I think I know what happened here, guys. And what's happening anywhere." Bruce said. "These X-Mansion ruins are not congruent with neither Magik nor Emma's X-Men insignias. The signs on this machine is nothing like theirs, it might as well be a part of the Bat cave's." 。。 "So?" Stark asked. 。。 "So, I think it's not people getting changed; it's actually chunks of other realities being deliberately placed over what used to exist in this reality. And with it whoever is in that space at that time." 。。 "That is quite a lot less sophisticated a magical feat, so if that is indeed true, then we're facing a lesser power." Strange said. "Most likely, Evil Magik, Strange, and Zatanna are the ones behind it and are not actually that powerful." 。。 "I hope you are right, so we can stop them." 。。 "No, I actually hope I am wrong. If they are indeed not as powerful as we thought, then they might not be able to return things back. Maybe no one can." Strange said. 。。 "Then what can we do?" Banner asked. 。。 "Mitigate the madness. Stop them and try to repair as much with our limited power." 。。 To be continued.
Episode 2.8 - We Must Dine 。。 Carol, Diana, and Saitama investigated the site where Saitama first appeared. 。。 "As I suspected." Carol said. "There has been some sort of very strong magical activity that happened here. My reader is snapping off!" 。。 "Saitama, can you exactly tell us what happened when you got here, like anything or anyone you saw?" 。。 "Well, not really anyone noteworthy that I can recall." Saitama said. "I knew I was in a different place all of a sudden and I kept leaping off trying to find my way back until I found Huntress in the back alley somewhere." 。。 "Speaking of that, did you see her fighting against anyone?" Diana asked. 。。 "No," Saitama said. "She was just unconscious on the ground and I had to take her to the nearest hospital. I just found her there." 。。 "I have a feeling we can find some more answers in that alley," Carol said. "Do you remember where it is?" 。。 "Not really. My mind is not working since I am hungry. Let's have dinner first! Your treat, I don't have money in this reality." 。。 "Saitama!" exclaimed both Diana and Carol. 。。 "Fine. I guess we should eat, we're at a diner anyway." Diana said, resigned, feeling tired herself. "It has been a long day. We must dine." 。。 To be continued.
Episode 2.7 - Diamonds The three teams went their ways to investigate their designated sites. On to the Black and White Team, TDT has learned how to fly his suit. "I think I am getting the hang of this. This is a very responsive suit." TDT said. "Hey, Emma, how come you can shoot diamonds from your hands now?" 。。 "I don't. Those are just visual representations of my telekinetic force. They look like diamonds, but that's just me projecting the imagery to the mind. It just looks better that way, I guess." Emma explained. "This same telekinetic force, I use to fly." 。。 "So TDT, tell us how does your reality look like." Raven asked. 。。 "I actually don't remember now that you've asked." TDT said. "We actually didn't have much time to gather the facts from Saitama and Bruce either." 。。 "Actually." 。。 "So, Emma, Raven, you guys are telling me that Carol and I are from this reality, but she is somehow affected by the warping so she thought Jim Gordon was always black?" Batman asked. 。。 "More or less." Raven replied. "With all the warping, we can't really say anymore." 。。 "So where are we headed, Bats?" TDT asked. "Where was the robot from?" 。。 "Latveria." 。。 To be continued.
δ½ ε₯½οΌγ“んにけは!Hello! Today, we’re reviewing Bunka Bricks’ Ultraman Jack custom Lego minifigure. I got this minifigure 3 months ahead of its release by a curious mistake. It was mixed with Bunka’s shipping of Ultraman to @legotwang as the two models look alike. It was then sold to me by mistake and I could not even tell the difference. 。。 The whole figure itself is white, spray painted with metallic silver paint and then pad-printed with red detailing. As with previous silver spray paint, one is advised to be careful to apply friction (by moving the arms too much) as that would scratch the paint off. Having owned this fig for more than 6 months and having displayed and moved it several times, no paint scratch has happened yet so it may be more durable than expected. 。。 The custom head mould is made with red, smooth, matte plastic, which feels very high quality and actually feels like one of the best quality of plastic used among the custom figs I’ve owned--it’s eerily like actual Lego plastic. The inset of the head has the BUNKA BRICKS logo stamped on it and it just makes everything feel luxurious. The eyes are evenly painted with yellow paint. 。。 The red detail printing on the body, arms, and legs is smooth, even, and symmetrical on front, side and back. The precision in the spacing and execution of the printing is gorgeous. 。。 In summary, this minifig is nothing short of an artwork--a love letter to the Ultraman shows. The price tag is also a lot cheaper than most pad-printed custom figs. As a fan of the Ultraman shows of the 90s, this really captured the essence of the character and translated it properly in Lego form. This is a figure to get, especially for fans of Ultraman. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…
"Hey, Adam, I heard you guest starred in the series made by Jerky." 。。 "Yeah, but it's more of a cameo. Turns out, my character is a robot." 。。 "Welp, I think we will do well guesting there, you know boost their ratings. Why don't you have us on the show, Jerky? We're big names!" 。。 "Who are you talking to?" 。。 。。 。。 #lego Β #legominifigures #legocmf #toyphotography #toyinstagram Β #legoInstagram #legophotography #toysOfInstagram Β #pinoyLug #afol #legogram #legographerid #brickcentral #bricknetwork #brickpichub #toyartistry_lego #toyphotos #toyphotos_lego #lifegoalsmotivation #gommzy #toyslagram #toycrewbuddies #toygroup_alliance #tcb_thefriendlygiant
Episode 2.6 - Three Teams After Carol recovered her powers, The team split in three to investigate three different locations that could possibly give them answers. 。。 White and Black Team composed of Emma, Batman, Raven, and Time-displaced Tony (TDT) will investigate the origins of the robot Black Adam based on the findings from the Batcave. 。。 BTS Team composed of Bruce Banner, Tony Stark, and Stephen Strange will investigate the ruins of the former X-Mansion. 。。 Team Wonder Baldy composed of Wonder Woman, Warbird, and Saitama will investigate the energy levels of the site where Saitama, TDT, and Bruce Banner first appeared in this reality. 。。 This is in an effort to find the source of the reality distortion and erasure of beings in the reality they are at. 。。 To be continued.
"You know how Superman has Supergirl because Superman is older than Supergirl. What if since I am Spider-Woman and I am much older than you, why don't you be Spider Boy? Sounds nice eh? Eh?" 。。 。。 。。 #lego Β #legominifigures #legocmf #toyphotography #toyinstagram Β #legoInstagram #legophotography #toysOfInstagram Β #pinoyLug #afol #legogram #legographerid #brickcentral #bricknetwork #brickpichub #toyartistry_lego #toyphotos #toyphotos_lego #lifegoalsmotivation #gommzy #toyslagram #toycrewbuddies #toygroup_alliance #tcb_foralittlewhile
Episode 2.5 - Warbird "Carol, there is something I must do." Emma said, touching Carol on her shoulders. 。。 "Whoa--aaaaaaarrrrgggghhhh" Carol screamed, writhing in pain. 。。 "There. You're fine now." Emma said. 。。 "What did you do?" Carol asked. "Did you just entered my mind and scanned it?" 。。 "Yes." Emma said. "But I also made your body remember that it has powers. Try flying now." 。。 "Oh wow!" Carol said, flying again. "That took several episodes!" 。。 "When all these happened, your body seemed to have forgotten it has powers. I just made it remember again." 。。 "OK, ladies, now that everything is in order, we have some planning to do." Diana said. "We need to find who did this and put a stop to this." 。。 To be continued.
Episode 2.4 - Starks "I wish I can tell you exactly what happened to you and why you are here. But I am just as clueless as the rest." Red Tony said to TDT. "As Emma said, we were noticing things happening to our world, little changes that few people notice. Like for instance, James Gordon suddenly becoming black." 。。 "That's weird." Carol said. "Wasn't Jim black ever since?" 。。 "No, he used to be white." Red Tony said. "Pretty screwed up, eh?" 。。 "What we know so far, is that the used-to-be dead Stephen is alive and that he somehow managed to get Magik and Zatanna on his side." Emma said. 。。 "And that is also why I am here." Stephen said. "Your Sorceress Supreme sent a mental message across different dimensions, asking for help. The Jean Grey from my reality picked up the message and relayed it to me. Thus, I am here, albeit a bit too late. And also stuck..." 。。 To be continued.
Episode 2.3 - Avengers League of America The team made their narrow escape from the villainous three with the help of Emma and Raven. Emma, who's been previously in hiding explains what has happened and what she knows of as they walk inside of their hiding place. 。。 "Me and the X-Men weren't really in hiding. We were attacked months ago and made it appear as if we caused all these troubles." Emma explained. "Raven saved me and we have been looking for the others since." 。。 "Who attacked the X-Men?" Carol asked. "And Wanda? What happened to her?" 。。 "We don't know, really." Emma said. "But I know it's blamed again on the X-Men." 。。 "We knew something off has been happening since the X-Men was attacked." Raven said. "There were parts of this reality that suddenly doesn't feel right. But not everyone notices." 。。 "I had to keep hidden. Public opinion was heavily against me and the X-Men." Emma said. "Then suddenly, no one remembers the X-Men. Or the Avengers League. Only us who remember remain." 。。 "Who's us?" Carol asked. 。。 "Hello, Tony." a Tony Stark wearing a red armour said. "Meet us." 。。 To be continued.
δ½ ε₯½οΌ こんにけは! Hello there! What better way to spend a Sunday than to review a demon minifigure! Today we're reviewing UG minifigures' Hellboy. 。。 First impressions of the Hellboy fig is that it's a very detailed fig. The right hand is customized, the headpiece, the trench coat, he even comes with a custom gun piece (which is lying around somewhere in the display case). The cost of all these customizations: USD 80. Got mine from @legotwang 6 months ago and I think they might have some in stock. 。。 The headpiece is a bit rough and actually does not fit snug on the head. I padded some tissue paper piece so that it doesn't feel off and fall off easily. The hair was perfectly Lego but the horns, I wish were a bit smoother. 。。 The printing on the face and torso match Lego's aesthetics. Printing is clean and accurate to the character. We get two faces, also. So that's good. 。。 Now we bump into another ugly. The custom right hand piece, while looks great, does not have a hook-in for the arm hole. This means that this fig can not be played with without having the hand fall off. πŸ˜” 。。 The legs are printed cleanly but are loose in the joints. Since the waist is printed with a belt print, you cannot replace the waist to make the legs less loose. 。。 The tail is from cms devil boy. Printing on the abs is abruptly cut by this tail, unfortunately. So since this is in the back, one may choose not to put it on. 。。 The trench coat looks great and fits well. But you can't display this fig without putting it on. It just looks weird. 。。 While on display, the figure looks great, but inspecting it further and taking the figure apart, it just doesn't stand to its asking price. We've seen pad printed figs with 3 custom moulds asking for less. But for big fans of the character, this is the best in the market and will be for a long time. β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†
δ½ ε₯½οΌγ“んにけは! Hello there! Today we are reviewing @brothersfigure 's 2017 release Black Adam. 。。 This is one of their bigger hits in 2017 and one of the many that sold out from that year. There's a chance that you may not find this figure in the market. This figure was made in collaboration with Cyclops Bricks. 。。 Looking at the fig, it looks like a Lego-made figure. The expression on the fig is very Lego-like for starters and the anesthetics don't stray far from Lego's. 。。 Unlike their recent releases, Black Adam is blessed with their signature diamond coating. This is a blessing for any gold/silver printed / painted minifigure as metallic paint is easy to scratch. The face is dual-printed, a practice becoming increasingly rare among BF releases. 。。 The torso's print is impressive and is very Lego-like. The black was also not taken for granted even though it is mostly covered by the cape. The arms are also painted and printed. Metallic paint again. 。。 The legs are painted halfway with gold. This is bothersome as most of the time, you will stick the legs to studs when displaying this minifig. It's best to use the Lego minifig series stand to avoid scratching the paint. 。。 The cape is a bit papery, and is lined with gold, which looks prettier if executed with a thicker coating of gold. But that is nitpicking already. 。。 This was BF at their 2017 prime: no longer a newcomer and making bold choices that paid off. Though the metallic would soon prove problematic for less careful owners, this figure, if taken care of well, is a joy to own and display together with its fellow baddies. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†
Episode 2.2 - Queen Diamond Just when all hope is lost, huge chunks of Diamonds flew and incapacitated the villainous three. 。。 "Quick, get out of the sanctum, Carol, Tony, and Bruce." the lady in white said. "We can only hold them for so long. Raven, now!" 。。 "Azarath Metrion Zinthos!" 。。 The villainous three were nailed to the ground as more diamond chunks flew to them, knocking them out. 。。 "Who--who are you two?" TDT asked. 。。 "I'm Queen Diamond... Or Emma Frost, Tony. More running, less asking of questions, please. We need to get out of here." 。。 "Tony, let's go," Carol said. "Batman, if you are getting this message, don't enter the Sanctum, whatever you do." 。。 The three went outside the sanctun and Emma and Raven followed. Raven conjured arms and carried the rest to the sky. 。。 "What's happening? Why did Magik and Zatanna attack us? And what's with the evil Doctor Strange?" Carol asked. 。。 "Wish I knew myself but we are still puzzling things together." Emma said. "Things just suddenly got weird in this world. The other Stephen and Diana is waiting for us at the Mansion. Also, the other Tony." 。。 "Other Tony?" TDT asked. 。。 "Yes, Tony. Another Tony." 。。 To be continued.
