Thanks to my blogger friends!

P4278394
Thanks guys! the dinner at a fast food chain is so crazy..... lots of water on the table...tapos may natapon pa softdrinks sa likod, then the fast food crew gave two forks to Jinkee, it was a night of exchange of information especially when it comes to blogging, how to earn money and photography.

hmm...let's organize a weekly Friday tambay night
game?

Ashton will watch Barney and friends Space Adventure show today

P4288458

I'm so happy that my little boy will watch and see Barney live hahahaha. I didn't expected that Concertus will give 2 complimentary tickets to me, I'm saving money to buy tickets and I'm glad that they emailed me last week that I can claim the tickets to their office and watch the April 28 show at the Aliw theater. I showed the tickets to Ashton this morning and I'm not sure if he knows what are the use of those glossy paper thing. Last night Ashton jumped on me and hug me when he saw a news coverage of the Barney show last night in a news segment of Saksi of GMA 7. I told him last night that we will watch the show and still he is clueless that the Barney will appear infront of him tonight. I told him ask Barney a high five when the dino approaches him at the audience area.

Thanks Concertus for the VIP tickets!

MANILA, April 27, 2012 – “Marvel's The Avengers” grossed a staggering P100.76-million in its first two days of release nationwide, according to Victor R. Cabrera, managing director of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Philippines.

             The film is on track to be the biggest-grossing movie in Philippine history as it marches on to its first weekend when box-office attendance significantly surges.
             “Marvel's The Avengers” is already ahead of “Spider-Man 3” – the country's current highest-grossing movie ever – whose first-two days gross back in 2007 was P91.71-M.

             Bowing in 467 screens, “The Avengers” recorded the biggest receipts in SM North EDSA (P6,165,744), SM Mall of Asia (P5,085,714), SM Megamall (P4,310,903), Trinoma (P3,993,746), SM Cebu (P3,360,436), Glorietta 4 (P2,839,283), Newport (P2,454,528), Gateway (P2,287,513), Eastwood (P2,249,819) and SM Fairview (P2,182,793).

             Marvel Studios presents “Marvel’s The Avengers”—the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

             Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hiddleston, with Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. “Marvel’s The Avengers” is from Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures, produced by Kevin Feige and directed by Joss Whedon from a story by Zak Penn and Joss Whedon with screenplay by Joss Whedon.

Hasbro vs. toy Blogger


via Urban Taggers

I read this news just now and I think it will be a tip for my blogger friends, especially to toy bloggers that they should mention their sources of photos or information they blog about especially about leaked info of products. I already got touch base with Hasbro before and they supported a GI JOE event that I organized years ago for their 25th anniversary, but that was a different nature because I never touch base with them me as a blogger, but only as a hobbyist and an event organizer. We don't have local Hasbro office here in Manila, but we only have those licensed company and distributors that take care of Hasbro products here in Manila, but if they need to contact you for legal stuff, I'm sure the internet and their local counterpart can do the job for them. So be careful.

I read the full story posted by Urban Taggers here at http://urbantaggers.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/free-stuff-from-hasbro-story-of-uts.html#more and Hasbro got on touch with the blogger by baiting them free Nerf guns.

Summary of the story, the blogger posted a feature of Hasbro's unreleased Nerf Gun in their blog and this information was taken from a shopping website based in China. Hasbro contacted the blogger and offered free Nerf guns to give it away to his reader, they need his home address so that they can send the items. But the blogger receive no toys, but a legal notice and letter from Hasbro's lawyer. Then the story continues until the reply from Hasbro's based got weirder.


But with all this drama....I'm still tempted to buy Nerf guns

video: Marvel's The Avengers Featurette - Black Widow


Scarelett Johansson talks about his character in the movie as Black Widow. We saw her last appearance in the Iron Man 2 movie, with little screen time and less dialogues, but here in the Avengers movie, you'll see how she more of her character as the greatest spy in the Avengers team.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie trailer 2


Trailer 2 of GI JOE movie sequel debuts online at YouTube and here we can see a close look on Cobra's team  and new characters for this movie.

Characters from the 1st GI JOE movie will return, but I noticed that Ripcord and Heavy Duty is not on the list of cast at Wikipedia and maybe the two characters died when Cobra unleashed a surprised attack on the GI JOE based, we see that on the trailer here and we heard that Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock mentioned that he don't want to bury another Joe in this mission. Scarlet, General Hawk and others are also not mentioned

Interesting new characters for GI JOE: Retaliation, here we have Flint, Lady Jaye, Firefly, Blind Master, Jinx, Tunnel Rat, Zandar, Mouse and then the original GI JOE - General Joseph Colton, played by Bruce Willis.

woohooh..more Joes characters.

Avengers: Thor 1/6th scale movie figure from Hot Toys

546199_10150672625917344_58690437343_9528382_1694738922_n
Hot Toys gave a tease for their new addition of Avengers movie 1/6th movie figures and their 4th figure is the god of thunder - Thor. This is just a teaser and maybe the next few days we will see a full details head sculpt and body, complete with helmet and accessories. Im sure the cape is removable, and we saw a photo of Chris Hemsworth as Thor wearing a sleeveless version of his costume in the Avengers movie. I have a feeling that the arms are interchangeable too.

Avengers: Nick Fury 1/6th scale movie figure from Hot Toys

431062_10150550354187344_58690437343_9123978_514319130_n
Hot Toys releases their 1st Avenger movie figure line 2 months ago, and we have here the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. - the one and only Nick Fury. The root of all Avengers initiative. Head sculpt of the figure is super accurate based on movie actor Samuel L. Jackson, body figure is poseable and complete with weapons, interchangeable hands and lots of accessories. The Tesseract has a light up add on that glows inside the steel case. For me this is the most scariest figure ever.... Samuel L. Jackson lives in your toy display cabinet.

552520_10150622113627344_58690437343_9364401_339620964_n
Last end of March 2012, Hawk Eye was unveiled by Hot Toys and marked as the 2nd Avenger figure  inline with the Avengers movie. All poseable body and interchangeable hands with complete weapons and accessories. I like the sun glasses add on to a perfect craft Jeremy Renner head sculpt.

Avengers: Captain America - 1/6th scale figure from Hot Toys

575840_10150670694207344_58690437343_9523176_691880980_n
Last Thursday, Hot Toys unveiled their latest and 3rd Avengers movie collectible figure in their Facebook, the 1/6th scale Captain America figure is so detailed and it already spoiled me for the movie that will be showing tomorrow here in the Philippines, you'll see an alien weapon here and it looks like that Cap will use that in the movie.

This is a fully poseable fiture and its costume is very detailed and accurate just like in the movies, the head sculpt is nicely crafted and based on movie actor Chris Evans as Captain America, the Hot Toys Captain America set is complete with the usual - weapons, hands and extra head without the mask.

This figure is priced at $200 at Sideshowtoys.com

I remember that Hot Toys crafted a Black Widow figure from the Iron Man 2 movie, I just hope that they resculpt another version inline with the movie, and Maria Hill and Pepper Potts too. Omg.. having 1/6th scale female figure will sure beat the Barbies.

Anyway, here are the photos, all images are from Hot Toys (  https://www.facebook.com/hottoys  )
