Pimping my Console!

Bought some accessories recently to pimp up my PS4 console and my Headset..

Got this Grand Theft Auto V HDD Bay cover!

Been looking for this, ever since it's original release in Japan only. Managed to find a local seller who were able to import these in. I have my doubts if this is the real thing but it looks exactly like the original. Could be from the same factory?

Either way, this is definitely way more classier than the bright coloured ones they sell locally.

Also bought these and managed to ship it in, with help from a US friend... The inFamous: Second Son Headset Face Plates..

These were easily available in the US so wasn't too hard tracking these down. 

Really don't get why Sony isn't making more of these for their different games. These should be a popular sell, if you ask me..

Just some changes to my otherwise all-black gaming accessories!

Wondercon 2016 - PCS Collectibles' Mortal Kombat Statues

This past weekend saw Wondercon 2016 at Los Angeles, USA and PCS Collectibles were on a roll!

Though most well-known for their Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat statues, there were several other licenses on display as well, including my long-awaited Sons of Anarchy 1/6 figures!

Mortal Kombat, however, will be utmost priority as always..

Been teased for quite a while, but this was the first look at the 1/4 Klassic Cyrax.. 

Looking phenomenal, this will be a great addition to the Klassic line. I wouldn't be surprised to see Sektor and most probably Smoke follow shortly.

Also on display is the 1/3 Klassic Reptile which will be going up for Preorder tomorrow!

2 amazing pieces for the Klassic lovers.. But, sadly no love for the MKX lines even though there are a few being worked on.

Here's a better look at the 1/3 Reptile statue and the several switch-out options.

"This 1:3 Mortal Kombat Reptile Statue is designed to perfectly compliment the 1:3 Scorpion and Sub-Zero and features :

– Human Masked Portrait
– Unmasked Reptile Portrait
– Unmasked Skull Portrait
– Hands with Acid Drip
– Clean Hands
– Right Hand Holding Mask
– LED Green Glow Base"

Will be up for the Preorder tomorrow morning, hopefully all goes well!

Here's some Street Fighter stuff that were on display too..

Chun Li and 1/3 Ryu

and the new 1/6 figures.

Hopefully, if these run well, there might be some Mortal Kombat 1/6 figures to look forward to, in the future.

Good stuff, collectors should be glad that these 2 lines are going strong with PCS Collectibles and we have a good, strong line-up of various characters. With the not-so popular characters also selling well, we can expect some obscure characters being made too!

Kinetiquettes' Devil May Cry Son of Sparda Statue Diorama revealed!

Another official reveal today! 

Kinetiquettes reveals their Devil May Cry Statues.. Dubbed the Son of Sparda Dioramas, there are a total of 4 statues; 
Dante - Human & Devil Trigger versions
Vergil - Human & Devil Trigger versions

Here are the pics..

 and wait for it...


It took me a while to soak this all in but look at that! That is one sweet diorama! Amazing creativity and they managed to pull it off..

Starting from the extreme ends, Dante and Vergil activate their Devil Trigger as they close in.. Amazing, just amazing!

This is something to keep a close eye on.. and with Kinetiquettes being a local company that I have been following for quite a while, this will be very, very tempting..

Storm Collectibles' 1/12 Mortal Kombat Scorpion figure details announced!

After previewing the Mortal Kombat Klassic figures in several toy fairs, Storm Collectibles are finally ready to release their first figure in the "VS Series", the 1/12 figure of Klassic Scorpion!

Here are the officially released pics..

Very detailed and face sculpt is amazing.. Best face sculpt I have seen on any Mortal Kombat figure (not including statues). The articulation and accessories on this figure will be a joy to pose with.

Storm Collectibles' update also mentioned..
"Klassic Scorpion feature a brand new developed body, 100% hand-painted, over 30 points of articulation, 7” tall, a skull sculpt, 2 masks, 6 pairs of palms, fire effect and a scorpion-spear."

2 masks?! In an early preview back in July 2015, 2 masks were shown with prototype figures..

The other mask is on the base, and it looks like the cloth mask from MK1.. So I'm assuming that's the other mask that will be included.

The proportions however, look a bit off. With the skull head, the shoulder pads look too big but they seem ok with the normal masked head.

The rope spear is a must for Scorpion but the flame effect turned out a lot better that I think it would. 

I think the figure looks great. Just might have to get 2 to display with the different heads and accessories. The only problem I have is that a lot of Mortal Kombat figure lines die off way too early. Will this be another one to receive a fatality?
