Star Wars: Singapore Edition


From VFX/Director/Actor Livan Goh comes "Star Wars: Singapore Edition"! And while I am unable to watch the film until next week, here's a nice slice of "home" which I remember hearing Han Solo speak of, to Chewbecca in the first trailer … Heh.
WHAT: "Based on 'The Force Awakens' trailer and the Star Wars movies, this fan made trailer attempts to recreate some of the scenes into a Singapore setting as well as adding a few new ones."

#FamousChunkies Chunky Bounty Hunter - Boba Fet and Jango Fet by Alex Solis x VTSS Available To Order Now


Available to Pre-Order from December 16, 2015 via www.vtsstoys.com online now (with more worldwide stores and galleries coming soon) are CHUNKY BOUNTY HUNTER BOBA FET & JANGO FET!

Standing 9-inch tall each, and limited to 120pcs per character, priced at US$200 per character (free worldwide shipping), and US$$360 special set (free worldwide shipping) - with ONLY 20 sets Limited. Figures are scheduled to ship around end of Feb 2016. Looking spectacularly AWESOME, and would make a perfect fit with their previously released Star Wars Chunkies!

“Famous Chunkies” CONCEPT: "While watching a Ninja Turtles cartoon with my daughter, we kept making fun of them and asking how they are so fast and in shape when their diet consists mainly of pizza. I felt like it was sending the wrong message to kids, and I noticed a lot of others cartoons did the same thing. At first I started the project with the intention of just creating that one illustration, but it was too much fun to stop there!

I realized it was a good way to raise awareness about unhealthy eating, especially with young kids. It catches their attention quickly and it’s easy to make that connection immediately. After creating it, the series has been featured in various prominent articles, newspapers, magazines, blogs etc worldwide, I wanted people to be able to have the whole series in near future."
- shared Alex Solis.

The Emotional Journey Of Watching 'Star Wars' With Your Kid

I Wish I Had More Star Wars Toys...

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on


With the excitement for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS looming beyond the galactic horizon of next week (the film premieres Dec 17, the day after my annual eye checkup btw, and I hope to watch the movie without an eye-patch on) ... - I also feel the lack of SW toys in my humble collection, having loosely purchased figurines throughout the years but never truly focused on specific characters besides Stormtroopers ...

My plan is/was to feature a SW toy each day until the premiere, but alas I do not think I have that many figures worth a feature, and by that I hope not to "recycle" older toys who had previously had a time in the spotlight on this blog before ... but who knows? Heh.

Toy credits left-to-right: "Brienne" bought from QUICCS / 6-Armed SPIDAHOPPER by Topz Greenfull ToyDsign (a TOYSREVIL 10x10 Exclusive edition & a gift - thanks buddy!!!), and two loose figures bought in Bandung circa 2009.

Introducing Jobby The Crap (Son of Jabba) From Furry Feline Creatives

"In celebration of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we have created a custom called Jobby The Crap (Son of Jabba). Remember the time when you just had a car wash and suddenly birds poop all over it. This is the case with the Storm Poopers. Measures 6 inches tall. and is now available for US$180 at Furry-Feline.com " - shared Alvin Ong.

Star Wars The Force Awakens Final Epic Trailer (New Footage) #SPOILERS

This "Final Epic Trailer" was fanmade by Alex Luthor (Twitter @Alextrailers) a couple of SPOILERS (recent seen online via International trailers), including Rey's future (revealed in a toy figure), and sequences seen from before but extended - hence providing context to said scenes ... it is too late for me as I watched it ... but YOU could resist the temptation! Couldn't you?

Chinese Trailer for Star Wars: THE FORCE AWAKENS

SlashFilm said I shouldn't watch it, but I still did, no doubt making me fall under the category of humangeekbeings who do whatever they are told not to (*cough*) … and all I can SPOILERY SAY here is … not too much is revealed, but enough to spoil "surprises" in sequences seen before but as yet fully revealed in any other trailers and spots seen thus far! Won't "die" one, don't worry ... maybe ...:p
