Subway? Wagyu? Wow!

Recently Subway have been busting out some Wagyu subs.  I wonder what they are like?

Could be quite yummy, after all Wagyu beef is ridiculously expensive, although tasty. 

KaBlam! Classic Transformer Acquistiton

Well, maybe not quite.  I got the Generations release of Warpath the other day and was so impressed I had to share it with the world!


It’s a great toy, newly updated with nice articulation features and yet it still looks like Warpath.  An update that is spot on.  Robot mode is cool.  Vehicle mode has him transform into an H-tank.  Transformers seem to bust out a fair few H-Tanks, and yet I have never seen a real one.  If any one has any pictures of an H-tank, please link me up!



I will get around to a gallery and review when I can.  Hopefully soon, coz I love this guy POW!

What's up with the 'next blog' button?

Occasionally I like to have a gander at fellow bloggers blog's, I check out what to see using the followers buttons, and once that's done I go ahead and whack the 'next blog' button.

And I end up touring quite a few blogs about
  • Religion
  • Quilting
?  Surely there is more interesting stuff?  Well I am sure quilting and religion is interesting, in fact I will say I end up generally having a good old look to see whats up, but rarely do I manage to crank another gaming bog, or a toy blog, or even a movie related blog.


Political Quilts.

I sense some tension in the haberdashery section. Please exercise caution when passing this section of your local shop.  There may be violent protests!




I personally have no issues with feathers per se, but it appears that some people do not appreciate them.

Obviously victims of the Spanish Inquisition..

While I was grocery shopping

I went to buy some groceries last week, as we had no food after having to cancel our trip.  I knew that some places of Japan had empty shop shelves due to the earthquake interrupting supplies, but I didn’t realise that the effect would carry on over half the world and affect my local supermarket’s supply of ice cream.




Oh hang on, it wasn’t the earthquake, it was just the same piss poor service that we have to put up with in Australia all the frikkin’ time!


What ridiculous ‘specials’ they have too!  Who really needs to buy 3 of the same icecream at one go????

Latest Gets Wa ha ha ha haaaaa!

Caught up with some mates and picked some stuff up for me and for them.

RTS Lugnut for a friend, Grappel (Grapple to us normal folk), Trailcutter (Breaker), Prowl and a lovely Thunderwing, which I haven’t seen at my local shops once, but is apparently running around all over the place at many other shops.   Also picked up the English Okamiden.  No special edition (sadly) could be found.

Not pictured, is a second Wreck Gar, which I picked up later.  Why? 
Coz he can ride another!  WOooooOOOT!  This figure just gets better and better!

Double trouble for Sonic.

Aaaa, Dr. Eggman and Metal Sonic.  Probably my favourite Sonic enemies.  Metal Sonic is always awesome, ever since the day he captured Amy Rose in Sonic CD.  Eggman, well he has always been a crazy villain.  More often then not, a bit of a joke, but recently he has been getting better.  his voice actor making him the most bearable of the VAs in recent games.  Now I have them both to take on Sonic!  Oh yeah!

The Japan Earthquake. Unprecedented coverage?


The Japanese earthquake of the 11th of March was a major doozey.  Initial rumblings were felt on Wednesday the 9th with a massive one on the weekend, reaching a magnitude.  Something that has interested me more then the recent natural disasters is the level of coverage.  Having friends and family in Japan, I was more interested than normal from the start.

This new Wreck-Gar is coooool!

Having spent some time messing around with Wreck-Gar, I have come to the conclusion that I really, really like it!  Good face, moustache hair, and his legs, OMG, his legs.

A hidden Gem. Calpis Water

Some of the things that I got addicted to on my first trip to Japan; House of the Dead 2 with guns, Crazy Taxi, Space Channel 5 and Calpis Water.  Game, Game, game, drink.  That’s right.

Tets thinks he’s funny

Just quickly whipped these up while messing about with my Reveal the Shield latest toys.


Latest Get jya!

Huzzah!  I got Steel Princess Ymir (Japanese = “Yuumil”) in the post today. Awesome.  This character is from Queen’s Blade and is my second favourite character!  Why?  Well, she is a Dwarf and is one of the older characters, but because Dwarves live long, she still looks like a little girl.

Addicted to rub signs…..

So I got that Jazz and Tracks earlier and much earlier, I had Reveal the Shield Windcharger, all who came with lovely jubbley heat rub signs, bringing back fond memories of G1 Transformers.  And others, some Beast Wars and the US Classics had them too, but I digress.  After watching them go orange by themselves at night because it’s so damn hot here lately, I decided to get RTS Optimus Prime.

Hmmm, coffee-licious

I have been out and about on the search for other things, and yet coffee has managed to make it’s way into my day.
Investigating some takeaway.

Monster birds

Occasionally our suburb is blessed with the visitations of the very impressive Black Cockatoo.  A native bird to WA and I think it’s an endangered species (as most native animals are).  The better half loves them, and I must admit they are an impressive sight.  We managed to get some shots.
