The Claw!

I love days like these.

When I was doing my weekend toy shopping at CSC (China Square Central), I went into a shop and looked around like any other time. There was an extension at the corner of the shop (it acts like a little storeroom)and I went in to take a look.
Right at the corner, stood The Claw! Yes the machine in the Toy Story movie which house all the cute aliens!
The shop owner told me that it was a defect piece and the claw mechanism was not working. He told me I could have it for $5 and if I could fix it I had a great deal.

Damn! Even if I don't fix it I thought this was a cool display piece. I collect those Toy Story's aliens and they are so going into this!

When I went home to try it, the mechanism was working fine. The only problem was that the chain had broken off. When I have the time, I think it would be an easy fix.

For now,this will be the home for my collection of the Toy Story's aliens.

Look! Transformer Mania hits Singapore!

Press Release -
Optimus Prime and Bumblebee visit Singapore Ahead of Cybertron Con 2012!

Singaporeans were greeted by a surprising yet familiar sight earlier today as two iconic characters from popular entertainment franchise, TRANSFORMERS, took to the streets in their pre-Cybertron Convention 2012 tour of Singapore. Autobot leader Optimus Prime and his trusted brother-in-arms, Bumblebee, arrived early into Singapore and wasted no time in getting to know the Lion City, their home for the next three weeks.

Here for the Resorts World Sentosa Singapore Transformers Cybertron Con 2012 due to take place from 11 to 14 March, the two began their tour of Singapore ahead of the event's Southeast Asian debut with a visit to locations such as the Old Airport Road Food Centre, the market at Kallang Centre, Chinatown and even Raffles Place, stopping to rub shoulders with the locals who have made such locations a common feature in their daily lives.

First stop - Breakfast at Old Airport Road Food Centre.

I hope they have Energon cubes!
