Why so expensive? Breakfast cereal...

I like breakfast cereal, which is a shame because the shops, despite having a whole aisle dedicated to it the range is fairly poor.  Sure there is a lot of brands of cereal, but they ll make the same type.  As a result whenever a new cereal comes to town I get all excited.

Enter Sultana Bran Buds

Crazy weather ruining my day.

The past couple of days have ben really fine and nice.

Something along the lines of this...

Old Skool Surprise!

I have been plaing thorugh Valyria Chronicles as of late and was plonking away (still very early on) and came across this..
Any sega-phile should know where this guy comes from.

From the Vault, THS02 Hybrid Style Convoy

I was digging around in my cupboard the other day and found this gem.  Another Convoy?  Pfaaah! I hear you say.  Well yeh, it is another Convoy, but it's a special one you know.

Incredible cloud formations in the morning.

Awoke this morning and went outside.  Aaaah, nature's beauty, some quite cool looking clouds in the sky.

Newly arrived AnimatedCybertron Ratchet

My TT Cybertron Animated Ratchet showed up today.  Haven't had time to open, but intial impressions are good.   White isn't as white as I thought it would be, more like a grey actually.  The red is very very nice though.  Toy wise it looks better than the Hasbro version.  Less cartoon accurate though.  I know this is a good mould, so I am happy!

Pastry cooking, FAIL

Had a nice day today and tried my hand and making some apple pastries.

Great Gaming Moments... Sonic & knuckles

I loved Sonic so much and my excitement for this game was reaching an almost zealous nature! After being introduced to Knuckles in Sonic 3, the opportunity to play as him was too much to resist!

Tets Plays a Demo, then rants. Enslaved, Odyssey to the West

Just played a demo of Enslaved, Odyssey to the West. Why? Just because.

What was it like...

Playstation Network Shopping across the continents.

Ye olde Playstation Network (PSN) allows one to download and buy some classic and not-so-classic Playstation 1 games.  Sadly though, Japan, North America and Australia and U.K (who share the same store) are all host different games.

Cool gaming Moments... Gunstar Heroes

Aah, Treasure, how I love your ways.  by far and away one of the best games ever made.  Treasure, the makers of this game and a couple of other faves of mine did really well.  The first time I booted up this game (back in the 90's) I was blown away by the fun, two player and flow of the game.  That's why it is in my great gaming moments!

Stealth Force Soundwave

Yet another Soundwave in a jazzed up van mode that doesn't transform. Is it worth it? Depends on price in this humble writer's opinion.

Tets goes to see The Last Airbender in 3-D....

Oh dear oh dear oh dear.... M Knight Shyamalan if that is your real name... What has happened here then? I think he may have spent some time in the Michael Bay school of direction.

Revoltech Buzz and Woody!!!

Woody is especially suited to the Revoltech treatment. Just like Jack Skellington from the Nightmare Before Christmas, his long lanky limbs bode well for the toy. How can you have Woody, with no Buzz? So I have them both as I am a big fan of the movies.  (I have also newly acquired Chogokin Buzz figure as well)

The many faces of Rodimie

What kind of temporal anomaly is going on here then? Many hands of Rodimie make for light work.

Newly acquired Gundam Lightning Base! very cool!

On a whim at a toy store I saw this lightning stand thing and after chatting to the guy in the shop about it, decided to make a purchase.  Glad I did to be honest!
