Merry Christmas – 2014 Haul

26 12 2014

First off, hope everyone had a great Christmas day. Family, friends, food, gifts, and non-stop NBA basketball games on TV made this day a long one to get through. But I survived and hopefully you did too.

This year’s gift haul was certainly epic.

1st up, Bandai’s Real Grade Justice Gundam model kit. I technically got this yesterday morning at my office Christmas party and once I got home, I went right to work on it. As you can see I repainted it blue, panel lined it, and applied a few decals. Fun build. 12+ hrs of work.

Next, another Real Grade kit, the Destiny Gundam. I’m fortunate I have the whole last week of 2014 off to take my time on building this one.

Got a very cool Batman Arkham Asylum action figure set by DC collectibles. The Batman figure I got in single form when it was first released but the one in this set has a much darker paint scheme which I really think looks better. The villains in this set look really wicked.

The female Assassin Creed Aveline De Grandpre figure by McFarlane Toys. Never had a chance to play her in the games, wonder if she’s any good. Also, season 1 DVD set of the Musketeers.

Got Generations Deluxe Chormia and Arcee as well as the new Animated R.I.D. Warrior Class Strongarm. 2014 was the year of the fembots.

and lastly, gift to myself thanks to a sweet Holiday bonus, got the full set of Revoltech TMNT action figures. May do a video review on these after I try test them out bit more to see what the pros and cons are.

That’s all for now… need a beer 🙂
