But this notably gives us a first chance to see the remolding for the inner combined-mode chest which up until now has always been concealed under Blackjack in the promotional photos. We believe the outer chest doors may have changes as well, but we're still waiting to get a look at those. Meanwhile, click through and check out the new pictures!

    I've been in Taiwan for about a week now and we have already done two events - the Kadokawa Contents Academy talk and CJ Night Taipei. It's been 3 years since my last visit to Taiwan and things have changed a lot - I didn't know just how popular Mirai was until my day 1 talk at Kadokawa Contents Academy followed by CJ Night. Despite being on a weekday, many comrades still managed to attend CJ Night Taipei and we also sold out of everything (Smart Doll, Moekana, Moekanji, T-shirts) on the night >< Right now I'm running to and forth various meetings with my team and when we get a breather…

Dubai is a wonderful international city and even though the main language is Arabic, English is the second language that is spoken by the majority of folks who power the service sector so if you are thinking of traveling and feel more comfy speaking in English then you wont have any probs making your way around. April had a good climate to visit - not too hot (when in the shade) with cool evenings - felt a lot like…

The best part of all is this bit where the show’s creator, Pendleton Ward, talks about a boy band that he was in called Bloody Burbanks with some of AT’s producers. He begins belting out a sweet pop tune which then gets a funky beat dropped on it and it’s nothing short of mesmerizing.The actual song goes on longer in the bonus features than…

    'FANTASTIC 4' REBOOT TRAILER Not sure how I feel about this. Looks like it could be a decent movie even if it had nothing to do with a comic series. Seeing as how it’s just a teaser, all the superhero bits have been turned way down save for a quick “FLAME ON!” moment, a split second of off-screen arm-stretching, some Thing looking all rocky, and Sue doing some glowy blue stuff. I’m still kind of bummed that they’re trying to appeal to the CW tween crowd by casting a bunch of young dreamy kids, but I’m old and grouchy (i.e. NOT the demographic for this movie), so my vote doesn’t…

    As promised 3A has officially begun taking order on their impressive take on Transformers: Dark of the Moon Megatron and with it comes new images and details. The figure officially stands at a stunning 18.5 inches tall, dwarfing every Megatron action figure to come before it. Although that's a little small when compared with Bumblebee at 15 inches. And just like Bumblebee this is indeed an action figure, boasting more than 70(!) points of articulation including the fingers! The chains on his chest are real metal and he includes his shotgun. Plus he's got LED light-up eyes. On a…

The luckless bounty hunter, currently available for pre-order, will be available in an "Original" deco. Greedo is no stranger to Funko's lines, as the character has already had a Fabrikation and a Pop! (released way back in 2011). However, this marks the first time that ANY Star Wars character has appeared in the Hikari line (take that, Boba Fett!). Hikari Greedo may be the creepiest-looking version of Greedo that the company has released thus far (that Fabrikation, by contrast, was…

    The day my mom and sis were supposed to arrive was a fail. Mostly on their part. Their passports needed to have at least 6 months breathing time before it expires- sis has 5 mos before expiring, and mom has 4 mos before her passport expires. The hotel I booked is non-refundable and in order for me to use their accommodations, mom needed to send an email telling them that I’ll be the one using the rooms..even though I’m the one who booked the hotel in the first place. To cut the story short, goodbye money to me! Hello homestay for 6 glorious days. This is a recap of the pics I took…
  • DIY Hanging Dog Toy

    Michelle Leanne
    27 Jan 2015 | 2:18 am
    Hey all, So, today we’re doing another doggy project, because our pup needs a lot of stimulation and it’s time she had a new play-thing! What we’re trying to make is a simple suspended toy, that will hang above the ground, and bounce or swing as she tries to play with it. I am preparing TWO bottom pieces, simply because I don’t know how long it will take her to destroy one of them, and I want a spare. I’ve chosen to use some pieces of (untreated) chopped branch that were in the firewood pile. They were a bit damp but I’ve left them inside to dry out.

    Today's Vanessa is "High Tide." She arrived in 2007 in the line called "Style du Jour."This gal is pure pin-up material from the 1940's.High Tide was on the original tall body with high contrast makeup and period styled hair.At first, I wasn't in love with her hairstyle so I cut it and ultimately had her re-rooted and repainted. This is prior to the reroot.I have an original and I've grown to appreciate the donuts. There's a lesson to be learned but it's hard to keep dolls that I don't love. I have repurchased original issues of dolls on occasion.

I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. by…

  • This Very Vintage White Jocko Is More Fun Than A Barrel Of Monkeys!

    31 Jan 2015 | 5:03 pm
    It's easy to go bananas over special Steiff finds... especially when when it comes to the company's beloved primates! A few weeks ago, Steiffgal saw a great vintage Steiff white Jocko up for auction on an online platform. She put in a bid, and in all honesty, forgot about the auction. Much to her surprise, she got an email saying she had won the lot! A few weeks later, the charming chimp arrived at her home. And he was even BETTER than expected! Check him out here... isn't he adorable?This chimp-champ is Steiff's delightful and early pre-war white Jocko chimp. Jocko measures 15 cm sitting and…

    24 Jan 2015 | 12:35 pm
    Most Steiff collectors would take a tumble for an unexpected Steiff discovery!  And that's exactly what Steiffgal did when an inquiry from a colleague about this great and very vintage Steiff treasure landed in her email in-box.  Steady yourself and take a look at this marvelous merrymaker!Oh baby, here we have a delightful "child-proof" item intended for the youngest Steiff enthusiasts.  This is Steiff's "Roly Poly" Bear.  Many of us grew up with "Weebles," those funny egg shaped character toys that "wobble but they don't fall down."  This Roly Poly cub is an early…

    The excitement of finding wonderful vintage Steiff treasures is certainly universal... and all collectors love to be able to say... "Look what I found!" Check out this note from a reader from Germany who asks for advice on a possible purchase of a very vintage Steiff dog. Leonie writes: "Dear Steiffgal, Could you give me an advice for a purchase? I saw a Steiff prewar St. Bernard dog on eBay. He lost most of his fur, and his button, too. He is 28 cm high and his price is 95 euro. Should I buy him or is he too expensive?

  • Time Travelling Steiff Auction Highlights - Part 2!

    4 Jan 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Last week, we took a peek back in time and checked out a few auction highlights from a long ago sale. The event was held on Saturday, April 25, 1998 in Germany and managed by auctioneer Horst Poestgens. Steiffgal recently purchased the catalog from this sale and was just floored at some of the amazing treasures it featured. Here are three more absolute standouts from this wonderful Steiff event. You can't help but think, "oh, baby" with this first auction highlight under review today. This lot, #49, is cataloged in part as... "Prototype of a Steiff snap-joint teddy baby with neck mechanism,…
  • Time Travelling Steiff Auction Highlights - Part 1!

    27 Dec 2014 | 4:35 pm
    Nothing is better than studying precious Steiff items in person, but that is not always possible for many reasons. A great - and budget friendly - way to learn about exceptional button-in-ear rarities is through auction catalogs. In addition to collecting vintage Steiff, you probably won't be surprising to learn that Steiffgal also collects auction catalogs, both for entertainment and research purposes. Most recently, she spent just a few dollars on a relatively vintage catalog from 1998. A picture of the catalog's cover is featured here on the left. The auction was held on Saturday, April…

  • Pretend Play - Learning Life Skills

    28 Jan 2015 | 11:06 am
    We LOVE pretend play and spend a lot of time developing play solutions (such as costumes, dens, play furniture....and more!) that support all kinds of play. But we are especially passionate about child led pretend play. So why is that? The main reason is that play is the single most effective way for a young child to learn and develop important life skills. It offers countless opportunities for children to act out real life situations in the safe world of pretend! We call that world Fafunia. Where mistakes lead to giggles and disagreements are left in the toy box. But play really is…
  • Child led learning

    14 Jan 2015 | 5:51 am
    What does that mean?There are a lot of parenting philosophies, educational theories and pedagogy concepts around. They share similarities and they also differ a lot in their early learning approach. To simplify and explain why Fafu is all about open ended play and child lead learning opportunities it is best to divide those ideas into two main groups of ideas: Most of our current education system is based on controlling ideas because all curriculum's are based on them. It would be amazing if I could write with confidence that the controlling ideas…
  • The Brain Needs to Play

    14 Jan 2015 | 5:42 am
    Early education is probably the most important level of education. It is the time in children‘s lives where they start building peer relationships and the foundation for the people they will become. It is also a vital time for brain development.The development of our brain structure is based on two main factors; experience shapes the properties of our neurons (experience dependent plasticity) and there are distinct time windows during early development that shape brain function. This means that while children play they are also organising their way of thought and how they acquire…

I’m already having really vivid dreams of summer sunshine and fresh cut grass every night!

    Now that the first case has made it to court, the results for model Aircraft pilots is not good. Read the story below to get an idea of where this is headed. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration reached a settlement with the videographer to whom it issued its first fine for reckless drone use, ending a court case that challenged the government’s authority to regulate unmanned aircraft. Raphael Pirker agreed on Thursday to pay the FAA $1,100 to settle the agency’s $10,000 fine for allegedly flying a drone recklessly to film the University of Virginia in 2011. Under the settlement…

I own a small drone with a camera and I can say it is really fun. But I can also say that it can get away from you and there is not much you can do about it. It could be because I am a rookie pilot but I can imagine what a more powerful model could do.

  • Prop Plane or A-10 Warthog?

    Bob Winfrey
    17 Dec 2014 | 6:14 pm
    Could a prop plane out do an A-10 Warthog? Our government thought that it could save alot of money by giving it a try. They actually had the theory tested. The U.S. Air Force has a complicated relationship with its low- and slow-flying A-10 Warthog attack jet. And that’s putting it mildly. The flying branch has tried more than once to retire the ungainly A-10 in favor of speedier planes, only for lawmakers to block the move. But on at least one occasion, the Air Force actually defended the heavily-armored, gun-armed Warthog from an unlikely challenger—a modern version of the World War II…

I have lost touch with using a remote control but it does come back with practice. Drones are getting very popular and let's face it, everybody wants one. Amazon, to deliver packages, Hollywood to shoot movie scenes, agriculture interests to monitor crops. And everyone is waiting for the FAA to issue regulations as to how commercial drones might be allowed to operate in the U.S. Those regulations are supposed to come out by the end of the month.
