DeLorean Bandai Exceed Model capsule toy time


Hey cool people of the internets, here I am with yet another capsule toy review, and this time I am having a look at the DeLorean from back to the Future.  That sounds kind of familiar right?  And it should as not so long ago, I did the exact same thing, but with a different one!  OMG, are we approaching the DeLorean event horizon as described by the wonderful Douglas Adams??


So you can relax (for now).  

This video is all about Bandai's version of the enigmatic car that comes out of a round ball.

Legends NightBird Sidestory Manga Translation


Due partly (wholly) because of the Masterpiece referencing this comic, I got off my butt and translated it.  Everyone's favourite made in Japan oversized ninja robot can be enjoyed easily by all.

This comic comes after the one included in the Legends release. Which you can read here:

Legends Nightbird Comic is here

Enjoy and thanks.

Mini Batmobiles!! Takara Tomy ARTS Capsule toys.


Here we are with another capsule toy review and this time it is of Batman's batmobile in various shapes and sizes.  Well, two anyway.  These little cars come with the bonus of being loaded with pullback engines!  

I've been enjoying making these silly capsule toy reviews and with them being short, they aren't that big of a drain on my meagre mind  

I hope you've been enjoying watching them.  I have some more to go as well, but am also working on my usual other stuff too.  Whatever my usual other stuff actually is. Anyhoo, enjoy the video.

DeLorean Capsule Toy Review, TakaraTomy Arts

Yet another Capsule toy review and this time it's looking at the Takaratomy A.R.T.S version of the goodl old DeLorean from Back to the future (specifically part 2).  Like Ecto1 from the Ghostbusters, KITT from Knightrider and um, other cars from other shows that are cool, I rather like the DeLorean, epscially since it also has Gull wing doors.  Horribly impractical in every day situations, but damn they look cool.

TT Arts made this little guy and I pikced one up.  Check it out for yet another video of Tets' Tat & Trinkets.

Smiski, the inside the house garden gnome

 Good time of day to all.  I thought I would drop a link another little video I made for a delightful little fellow called Smiski.  For all intents and purposes, (as eloquently stated by a friend of mine)an indoor garden gnome.  I like them, there is potential.

Thanks for checking it out!

Armadillo Lizard Capsule toy review

 Hello gang. Here I am with another Capsule toy review.  My plan is to have a capsule toy review up every two weeks or so.  Now that I've said that, my schedule is going to go badly isn't it?  

Following on from the overwhelming success of my CRAB video(40 views!!), I'd like to continue on with my wa(i)(s)ting of money on capsule toys and present a rather nice little fellow made by 

State of the Art (SOTA) and their take on an armadillo lizard.  

Warning, if you don't like lizards, don't watch the video.  I think many lizards are cute and this guy is one of them.  Skinks, geckos and the Thorny devil that drinks via its feet (not to mention the frilled neck and other lizards that run on their hind legs) and well, pretty much any lizard that is small and lizard-y I think I like.

This capsule toy does a good job of looking like one. Please take a gander.

Crab Capsule toy review

 So, for whatever reason I've been wasting money on various capsule toys recently.  After finding some cool ones, I had a dig around and there doesn't seem to be much organised information on these things.  A peruse of Youtube for example seems to result in a variety of vides along the lines of

Hey guys, look at all this crazy shit I bought in Japan!!!

And an unorganised video of a huge variety of stuff seems to follow without spending much time looking at and enjoying them. 

Which I think is a shame, as they are generally very cleverly designed.

With that in mind, I am launching a new section (yes, another one) that I cleverly call

Tets' Tat & Trinkets 

(still has the T, T and CH/SH combo of sounds y'see) where I will hopefully on a regular basis cover some of these remarkable little toys.  As well as other cheap stuff I find.

Here we go with the first one, ikimono Daizukan Common Box crab, by Bandai (yes, I chose an interesting one for the first one)  Scientific name of calapa lophos,
