Original vs Imitation
Of course you can identify which one is the imitation.. right?
Another Completed MOC
When you have nothing to do..
Look at what i have done to my black tumbler!

hmm, maybe i should do review on other exclusive minifigure that i have eh.
My first 2000++ bricks
presenting.. UCS R2-D2 from Star Wars theme!
update: and i found the best case for my R2-D2! I kept this in my office room. Definitely not good idea to put at home since i have 2 little gremlin who definitely will tear this robot into pieces =)
Oh, i paid RM200 for this case.. if i recall correctly lah.
Email me if you need to know the place where i order this case.
Hot wheels + Lego + Daiso Case
Remember This figure?
These are among the earliest mini figure that i play with when i was a kid. that's about 25++ years ago!
The first series was released by Lego in 2010. To date, there are 9 series released. Each series have 16 different minifigures. I myself start collecting them a bit late. I bought series 1 last year, (that's in 2012) that cost me RM640 for 16 minifig. (That's freaking RM40 for each minifig!) i think the original RRP should be RM10.90 to RM12.90 each. Amazing how they appreciate in just 2 years!
However, the value that collector put on each minifig isn't same. The zombie most likely the most expensive. I've been told that zombie in series 1 alone might cost you RM1xx per piece!
This is my collection of series 1 (bottom) to the latest series 9 (top)
update@1st June 2013;
I found the case i was looking for. It's RM15 only and definitely from daiso.
I really love the case. Cheap and good quality too. Apparently, not all Daiso have these bigger case. Most of them have those RM5 case. but if you are looking for this RM15 case, please visit Daiso in Sg.Wang. I've heard about red daiso, green daiso.. but really forgot this Sg.Wang outlet is which one..
as usual, once i'm crazy about something, i always bought them extra..
Part 2: I got the parts!
Part 1: I'm OUT OF control!
for EOL (end of life) set, hard to get:
I love minifig, not that i hate the set. but i'm too busy working and having 2 kids make my 24 hours is not enough. i don;t have time building the bricks and i have problem displaying them. for me,i love star wars, LOTR, POTC, super heroes and sponge bob minifig. So in my daily hunting, i dont bother looking at the set, my eyes only scan those minifigures.
For those parents looking for lego set for their 7 year old kids, i recommend "CREATOR" 3 in 1 set. you can build up to 3 variant (model) from the same bricks. eg set 31004. you can build an eagle, a scorpion or a beaver . how cool is that?
Last saturday, i went to Jusco Midvalley to buy planet series. as usual, the available set is pathetic. what's more pathetic is someone try to hide the set behind bigger set or maybe at other shelves. Since i went there early, i have time to gather the set according to series. (i know, i'm not paid to do so but i just hate people hiding the boxes). There are only 2 complete set of planet series. i bought 1 set and i left the other set like this.
Let other customer have equal chances to buy lego, shall we?
My story at jusco midvalley didnt end there. After i make payment at the counter, i was stopped at the exit when the alarm sound. 2 lady staff come and look inside my shopping bag. Without explaination, they took out my lego boxes and tear out the security seal at the bottom of the boxes. I think it's very rude not to explain things what they are doing to stuff already paid by the customer and 2nd.. why they have to tear the security seal? don;t they just need to bring the item to counter to deactivate something? now look what they did to my lego box:
I didn't know why i dont file complaint about this. but i did ask for refund the next day. they told me i have to wait 30 days for the refund to appear in my bank account. but i dont mind. I bought the very same item at Brickboy, The Garden. Now i have nearly perfect box condition. Hey, i pay these lego at premium (compared to prices in US/UK) so i expect to get the best for my money!
