Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!
For Christmas, my sister gave me this very nice Revoltech Eva-04 action figure. I heard this line of foigures from my friends Olan and Bambi and I have to say that these are really great! I'm a fan of fully articulated action figures so this was a no-brainer for me. It's the main reason why I bought some of Marvel's line of action figures. So having a robot is a first for me. While I'm still not a fan of robot toys as Olan is, I loved the Eva series and they look more humanoid than robots so this wasn't much of a change. I was supposed to get the Eva03, the black one because most of my figures are well, black. But I thought to myself, I wouldn't see much of it if it's black so I got the silver one instead. But now... I really want to have the black one also... probably next time. I'll be looking for the Revoltech Dante and a Revoltech girl(forgot the name) from Black Lagoon. But these 2, being from the first to second batch of figures from Revoltech may be out of stores already. If someone sees em, please let me know. I don't want to order online, get charged too high on shipping fees, get charged double by customs and wait for a couple of weeks to get my hands on them.
I got myself this DC Elseworlds Batman: Gotham by Gaslight figure for P850 at Greenhills. This usually sells for P999 and I've convinced myself not to get this anymore. But upon seeing it at P850... I just couldn't resist. Cheapskate. It doesn't have all the points of articulation a Marvel figure has, but it really looks good. The black wallpaper with it was the actual photo I took. No Photoshop enhancements so I'm quite happy with it.
Man, I can spend hours posing this Eva figure... now... what's next.
The mini pointless comic strip was done in 30 mins.
Happy New Year!

Bragging Rights

Pinoys will brag about anything and everything. Last night the headline was: "BAGYO, NANANALASA SA IBANG BANSA, GALING SA 'PINAS!"
