I was at a LEGO store and saw this adorable R2-D2 in their window display, I just knew I had to have it. So without even knowing the price, I took it to the cashier. Five minutes later and $260 CAD poorer, I was on my way home with this adorable model.

Ever since I got my Dollfie Dream Sister Kirisame Marisa, she has always been in her default witch outfit. Part of the reason is unlike the typical Dollfie Dream which is 60cm, the Dollfie Dream Sister (DDS) is actually a 50cm doll. And I haven’t go any 50cm outfits. Now of course I can dress Marisa in 60cm outfits, but some of them don’t look that good. Now finally I got my hand out a few 50cm outfits from Azone.
The first outfit is the Azone’s 50cm Santa Set 2011 (Red). Yes, yes, I know Christmas is a long way in the past. I actually did get the outfit by Christmas, but I was dead sick during the holiday season that I didn’t take any photos at all. So I guess this is more of a late late make up photo session.

Got some kimono from Infinite Love (Chinese) recently and had them on two of my doll for a long time. Finally sit down a snapped a few shots of them. These kimonos are actually pretty well made for their price, if you search on auctions outside of China, they are actually listing at very high prices (see Yahoo Japan Auction). For me I got it through a deputy from Infinite Love’s Taobao shop directly so the the two set of kimono with shipping and everything included only cost around $125 USD.
So here it is, Tohsaka Rin and Saber will show you what these kimono looks like.

Continues from The Toy Story Collection – Part 1, this is part 2 of my Toy Story Collection post. In Part 1 I covered my recent acquisition of Thinkway Toys’ Toy Story Collection’s Woody and Buzz Lightyear. These two are the characters from the first movie Toy Story. Now in Toy Story 2 two new characters are introduce as part of the “Woody’s Roundup” gang – Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl and Woody’s Horse Bullseye.
Let me start with Jessie. Just like Woody and Buzz, Jessie carries a price tag of $60 CAD at my local Toys R Us. I’d like to reiterate that the price tag is definitely more justifiable as a “collectable toy” than a simple child’s play thing. There are other Jessie dolls that does similar things that are priced at $30 CAD or below. The whole selling point of Toy Story Collection is that this is supposed to be a premium quality exact replica of the toys in the films.
Let’s hope that Jessie will bring me some joy where Woody and Buzz have failed…

In my previous post ‘Tribute To Steve Jobs‘, I’ve mentioned that I really love Pixar Studio’s animated movies. And I’s also posted that I think Toy Story (1995) and Toy Story 2 (1999) are two of the best animated films that Pixar has ever made. So one would expected me to own some Toy Story collectable toys. But, in reality, it is not the case. The main reason, as I look back, is because Disney kept on putting out toys that looks like they are some bootleg figures from hell. For example below to the left is an authentic Disney’s Talking Sheriff Woody doll. While to the right is a screen shot of what Woody looks like in Toy Story 2. Now as you can see the resemblance is remote at the best. Disney’s toys look like something coming out of a horrible Halloween costume party.
Well no wonder while I was a fan of Toy Story and Toy Story 2, I’ve never purchased any Toy Story merchandise. But all that was about to change…
