Today, November 16, I'll be one of the featured artists for Daily Deviants on Deviantart.com! Cool news!
Yesterday, I got myself Anakin's Jedi Starfighter, it's available again at Toy Kingdom. The first time it came out, it sold out it's stocks. It's priced at P1,200, cheaper compared to specialty shops in Greenhills. The quality of this Starfighter is better than expected. The construction is solid and come's prepainted with battle scars and burns, additional stickers are included for more detail. Toy Kingdom is now selling new stocks of Episode 3 figures probably for the release of the DVD. Anyway, planning on visiting soon to check out even more figures that might be cheaper to get there.

Shocked but Unaffected
ROTS DVD is now out in video stores all over the Metro. It's priced at P900 for the usual Region 3 2-disc DVD. As with Episodes 1 and 2, the special features contained in the second disc are interesting and fun to watch. You should also check out the easter egg in the first disc where we see Yoda get his groove on. It's a fun clip to watch. And while you're watching easter eggs, check out the outtakes in Episodes 1 and 2. To access these: go to the OPTIONS menu and enter 11-3-8 (from George Lucas' student film THX 1138) and enjoy.

Finally! The Circle is Complete!
Since November 1, I've been eagerly awaiting the release of Revenge of the Sith DVD here in the Phils. It was announced to be out on the 9th but was rumored to have been pushed to the 16th, the VCD is already out though. Earlier in the day, due to a cancelled family appointment, I went to the mall to check again, the video people sez they weren't advised when the dvd will be out but definitely, it'll be next week. Darn it, I can't wait that long! Now, I've been a member of a local DVD forum and saved a couple of numbers whom I can get copies of dvds, I just didn't order earlier because I thought I might wait longer for the shipment than to just wait for the local release, but today, I decided to ask if he still has a copy. And luckily, he has a sealed Region 1 Widescreen Edition ROTS still finding an impatient collector to own it. After a few texts and an hour and a half later, here it is! (yes! that quick!) The prequel is now complete! All I have to wait for now is waking up in the afternoon to watch it with the volume up! That's how it's supposed to be seen and heard. I am a lucky guy today... now, back to work! The Force is with me!

Nope, this isn't a No Man's Land game... this is from Soul Calibur 3's create a character mode. I haven't unlocked all the items yet but this is what I have come up with the few items and costumes available from the start. I know it needs improvement but once you see this figure in action and maybe squint a little, you MAY believe this is actually Parker... uhm, with a sword (a vision of things to come?!). Calling all toy companies, a John Parker toy variation! Medieval Parker versus Shogun Doyle Bakerton! Mecha Cherokee Bill sold separately.
Well, I do hope that we'll see a No Man's Land game in the future, maybe for the next gen consoles like the PS3... hmm...

3 Days to Go!
Thursday, November 03, 2005
November 1… when I first opened my eyes, the first thing on my mind was getting Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith on DVD. It’s released in the States today so it should be available already, maybe even earlier like the case with Batman Begins. I scoured the malls and found nothing. I asked the salesladies of Tower, Odyssey, Astroplus,
Listening to: Guns and Roses (Am I that old already?!)
Craving for: Buchi (weird, I never liked those but one time, there was nothing good to eat at home ‘cept for a ball of bucchi… I liked it)
