Renderform – Security Chief Upgrade Review

This is the latest released RF-004 Security Chief upgrade kit for Transformers Red Alert for April. Due to the delay shipping, I just received last month. I’m not sure if most of you familiar with Renderform. But he became well known after the surprised released RF-002 Empyrean Espionage upgrade for Universe SkyFall, a redeco Universe Ultra version of Silverbolt in Canada.
For your information, these kits are done by handmade which means buyers are going to expect seeing some QC issue. While I did brought RF-003 DJ Rockblast and didn’t encounter any. The Security Chief upgrade kit has. Not quite a big problem actually, it just the screw unable to fits in tightly and loose. Putting aside on those problems, let’s check out the design kit.
Actually there are two different colors for Red Alert upgrade because the red version brings more changes (I believe) to toy itself and close to G1 cartoon. When it comes to the head design, it was nicely done except the flaw I mention above. For your information, this is redesign version so that the head fit in and allows transformation to vehicle mode.
This is the first time seeing Venksta making an articulation shoulder missile. Although I didn’t find the work impressive and a bit easily fall apart while connecting. It doesn’t affect the toy looks due to the color matches closely. No, there is no spring inside allowing to fire or anything but the missile head is removable.
Red Alert also comes with new gun with an extra orange translucent version which I also previously received from DJ Rockblast upgrade kit too. Not bad for a free gift and I like it. Well, Bumblebee and Cliffjumper going to have a lot of weapons to choose from.
Final note, the handmade upgrade kit quality almost close to those 3rd parties made ABS products. So you definitely won’t feel any disappointment over it. I am happy with the current two upgrade purchases except for this time problem with the Security Chief Head QC issue. But I do need to remind you that this is limited run garage upgrade kits and quite expensive because the RF-004 Security Chief upgrade kit alone already cost me CAD$32 (with shipping).
AboutRenderform is not a company, who has access to get products made with steel molds, and ABS plastic.  Renderform is just a simple garage kit “group”, all done by 1 person, with some help from friends.  All this is done in my free time.  Products are hand made in resin, out of my garage.  Since a lot of things are new to me, like resin casting, I won’t get things right on the first go.  But with feedback from others, I can make improvements on future projects.  I will make sure my products are always the best I can put out, at the time.

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 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.
