Figma Drossel (NO.038) Little Review


Figma is a new action toys brand design by Good Smile Company (GSC) and Max Factory. It was started last year and the responses were overwhelming for the first release in Japan and slowly conquer around the world. Only up until this year, I decided to get one to see it myself why this action figures is damn so popular.


Beside the action figure I will be reviewing is Figma Drossel from Fireball, the first ever Japanese made Disney character which is the reason why I pre-order two. I’m glad I actually made that overkill my budget decision because one of them was actually bad produced on the right arm appears looking broken.

I already contacted both GSC and it took quite a while for them to respond. Well, that was because they were in the Wonder Festival promoting their products that time. Lucky, it was now confirm and waiting for the replacement parts from Japan. 
For now, check out the box below. Quite surprising it has a very good quality box design.
Open box, comes with several accessories and wall background, non-plastic type. It’s made by hard paper.
3x different head parts, 1x history book accessories, 1x small Figma display stand, and 1x set hands and plastic bag.

The articulations in Figma uses the plastic made and almost look identical to Revoltech. But it was really sad seeing the head gear came out with incorrect align. Kind of disappointment scar left on me for first Figma collection. GSC told me they can’t do anything about it. >_>*
Trying the flying head booster on her, looks great wasn’t it? Well, the bad news is that her head is so heavy it can’t proper maintain the balance. Luckily the articulation is strong enough to hold the weight while I am doing the photo shooting.
Booster ON!!!
What do I think about Figma products? I’m not so sure about the rest, but I’m not really fan of characters in action figure style. Although, when I was a kid, I remember use to play those hero action toys like mask (those cars that can transform into weapons) or G.I.Joe back then. For this age, I don’t know how I going to feel if I collect those anime characters for action toys.
Nonetheless, Drossel is different as I kind of find it acceptable for my taste and liking. I can’t say this is because she is also a robot that makes me like it. The design was impressive and the articulation around the figure also doesn’t stand out too much for the whole looks. Figma Drossel does cost me a lot and thinking about selling one away since I pre-order another one on December this year.

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using smtp.brunet.bn as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
