Give me your KEYS.

Ok, so 2gb USB drives are nothing special or new, but when I saw these KIKKERLAND Loop Memory Keys, over at the GIANT ROBOT Gallery Store, I HAD to have it. A very simple design by Richard Hutten, these "Memory Keys" come in four different colours, each includes a lanyard to hang the key around your neck. My favourite is orange, but the white was nice too. Ohoo! Imagine mixing the caps! 


FOXY Lady.

Yeah, yeah she wasn't the main character but it was enough to get me out of the house and watch WANTED. (Besides, who wants to see pics of DUDES?) Go see it. Overall it was pretty good. Its not a perfect movie, but it has some really, really great moments- moments that make you say "FUCK YEAAHHHHHH!"

I Nida few good soldiers.

From Shuraki, a multimedia figure series created from the collaboration of Red Entertainment and Good Smile Company, this PVC figure of German-born Nida Schuetlich comes in her soldier uniform and carries a long sniper rifle with a bayonet attached to its barrel for melee combat. Parts of her sniper rifle can be detached to form a shorter weapon. She also has a blade, which can be placed in her right hand or stored in its sheath. Sculpted by Shunji Hagii, and based on illustrations by Shunya Yamashita, Nida measures 21cm tall, and comes packed with an interchangeable battle-damaged outfit and a pair of extra arms, plus a custom diorama display base.

Oh, how I love a woman in uniform!


Phantom Menance

From Kidrobot comes Touma's 20" SDCC exclusive Dunny. I love Touma's Knuckle Bears, but I never truly liked his Dunny Series 3 design. Although this looks similar, I thought the tribal patterns were tastefully done. I was rather pleased with the non-traditional Touma "grin". This one fits the Dunny shape and design better. Shame I won't be attending SDCC.


That's Mine!

I recently purchased this book, Mine bluE: Yoshizaki Mine Works. It was printed back in 2004, but I never really got around to buying it until now. I am a huge fan of this Japanese illustrator's character designs and manga, Keroro Gunsou. (ケロロ軍曹)

Its FILLED with over 1000 illustrations and comes loaded with extras such as a dust cover box and a cardboard stand of the character from the cover. It's pretty neat!
