When I first saw this figure, I told myself that this is the "must-own" figure of Wave 5. And up to now, that's still how I feel about this figure. Yes, the Cobra Trooper figure is wicked as hell, but everybody knows I'm more of a Joe-guy, and my vote goes to General Hawk. Heck, the Cobra Trooper isn't even my second choice, because the Steel Brigade soldier is my clear number two. I told you so, I'm a Joe-guy.

Not a lot of people know that my foray into the toy collecting world started when I was introduced to McFarlane's Sports Picks NBA action figures way back in 2003. Long before being a toy collector, it was already my habit to check the toy stores out everytime I visit the mall. One day, I saw a Kobe Bryant figure (from Series 3) at a certain specialty shop and I was instantly mesmerized. The details on the figure were simply amazing, and being a huge NBA fan, I just had to own the said figure. I parted with some spare cash, took the figure home, and things started rolling. I did some research about McFarlane Toys, and next thing I knew, I had a bunch of figures of my fave NBA players on my table that I had to install glass shelves on the wall just to free my table up.

Here's another batch of items from my Greenhills trip last June 3.Yeah!
Is the Pursuit of Cobra line the best G.I. Joe line ever or what? Well, for me it is, hands down. But for those of you who are still on the fence, Hasbro has released another wave of figures to convince you. Like what we've come to expect from the Pursuit of Cobra line, Wave 5 features some top-notch figures like General Hawk, the Cobra Trooper, and the Steel Brigade soldier. There are also a couple of good figures in the form of the Jungle B.A.T. and the City Strike Cobra Commander, but there's also a head-scratcher in the form of Blowtorch. Overall, three great figures in a set of six isn't bad at all.

[Acquisitions] Thor: The Mighty Avenger Hammer Smash Thor & Captain America: The First Avenger Super Combat Captain America
Huh? June's already about to end, and I only have one post to show prior to this one for the entire month. How did that happen? Well, we've been really busy at work. In fact, we've been working 12-hour shifts with no days off. The tough schedule will last maybe until the last week of June at best, or until the first week of July at worst.
So, since I cannot do toy reviews for a while, I'll just be adding some site contents in the form of my spoils. Let's start with some great 1:18 Marvel figures, purchased way back last June 3.

Wow. I can't believe that my last post was two long weeks ago. Well, we're really busy at work, and that's going to continue until the middle of next month. I usually go home very tired, and I can't seem to find the passion to write reviews anymore. I've been spending my spare time following my fave NBA team's playoff run, I've been watching games and those pre-game and post-game analysis shows, and I've been reading a lot of basketball-related materials from various sports websites. Honestly, I'm a Miami Heat geek as much as I'm a toy geek. Yup, I'm a big Miami Heat fan sine 2003, but may be we can talk about that some other time.
