#CSCToyScore June 26, 2016


I have been wanting to go to China Square Central for a while now, specifically to take picture(s) of a stall/table that sold miniature items at the sunday flea market - thinking my students could use as "props" for their model submissions - and found the opportunity to do so today .... so guess which stall did not open today? :p

Nevertheless, I did what I told myself NOT to - and perused the toyshops, and found myself coming back home, with THESE…

My first #Sunguts vinyl! GID too haha - thanks CSC! #toylife #toyscore

"They Live" by 100% Soft



(Above: "They Live" homage by Truck Torrence AKA 100% SOFT)
""They Live" is a 1988 American satirical action horror film written and directed by John Carpenter. The film stars Roddy Piper, Keith David, and Meg Foster. It follows a nameless drifter (called "John Nada" in the credits) who discovers the ruling class are in fact aliens concealing their appearance and manipulating people to spend money, breed, and accept the status quo with subliminal messages in mass media.

The film has since garnered a large cult following. The film has had a lasting impact on street art, particularly that of Shepard Fairey; its quotations have entered the popular culture, and it makes appearances on all-time lists for best fight scenes."
(Wiki)
See the trailer for the movie since posted on #PopcornX - and Have A Fab Weekend, folks! :)

I'll be selling bits-n-bobs from my personal collection very soon (I've said that for many years actually), from loose / no-box figures, to duplicate gachas and bootlegos, to some proper boxed collectibles ... I just have got to figure out HOW to sell them!

If I had a shopfront or showcase, that'll be easypeasy... Or should I just snap-n-share on social networks (harder to manage tho), or post on a dedicated Facebook page, or blogshop it? Or a private mailing list? "Pop-Ups" would be fab, but SG doesn't play that game well, alas ...

Local/Singapore-based buyers paying CASH would be ideal, tho,. but overseas/international orders are always more than welcomed!

I've never enjoyed selling my collection (altho I used to enjoy "selling toys" :p), but I really need to thin the hoard, which at this point in my #toylife is really getting out of control hahahahaha

Cheers,
Andy

OMG, if I were previously impressed by the Justice League releases (I thoroughly enjoyed my "Trinity"), the villains (alas not named "Injustice League") looks utterly EPIC! As well I appreciate the skeletal aspect of the anatomy being on the LEFT side of the figure, as opposed to their "heroes" counterpart's skeletal-RIGHT!

Based on DC Comics characters, they'd look pretty splendid placed side-by-side; the heroes and their villains, methinks!

Approximate release is the 4th quarter of 2016. Make your enquiries with your fav retailer(s) quick! And stay connected to Instagram @migtyjaxx for further availability updates!
