Yen Raising King


By now, most of you who subscribe HLJ newsletter might already read about the raise of the Yen currency recently. I already expect that happen beginning from last year s after realizing the Yen is falling slightly every month. However, this time it’s different and getting worst.

No idea what am I suppose to buy this month after spending on getting Transformers Micromaster. But I decided to let the HLJ Gundam sales slip pass me again and wait for the price latest update. Everything buying decisions will be decided by next month. For the meantime, I am most likely continued to focus grabbing Transformers Generation 2/3 and recently announce United by Takara Tomy. So many to get and I won’t missed Fansproject Rodimus upgrade either. Hehe…

Telbru – Privilege Card - Update


It’s a free card that everyone wants to apply one. Mine arrived on last week at Seria and that pisses me off greatly. Why? I applied this card on last year November 2009 and finally was told to get it on last week! Is this a joke or what? Does it really needed to take a long ten months to approve? Well, even that’s not the case anymore when open up and found out it was actually already approved on December 2009 last year also! Oh my gosh and how the fuck it can take so long too sent out is really out of question.

Never mind that, I’m not sure how good the offers might give. But so far I know, it was disappointed and one of the listed computer and technology, Netcom Computer House, already no longer accepting this privilege card more than six month now I heard. Why the hell Telbru didn’t remove the partners from the official website merchant lists? No one knows if the other merchants do follow or already walk out many moons ago. To avoid this confusion, I decided to drop them a message to find out more update information on the merchants and will update this post once received the update from Telbru.

Update! Telbru had inform me that Netcom Computer House is still a partner for the privilege card.

Bruneian Bloggers Rights


So, anyone thinking about going there? I’m not interested on the hearing about the rights or something since I know half of rules already. Every one of us might already know the first important rules that bloggers are not allow to insults or write opinions on any related on his majesty and its families private secrets unless you live outside of Brunei. Well, of course this includes the governments too.

I know Brunei is not the country full of free speeches. As always did, I am careful of what to write and expressing. Although I no longer really cares about the Governments headlines, because as long you don’t write fake rumors and everything said is truth. There isn’t anything to afraid of. My only complains so far is just the housing issues and fucking damn long not hearing when we purple holders can applied too.

Understanding more is a good things and hopefully seeing them posting up in the website so that every bloggers can read. No one knows for sure what changes anyone of us might expect from the local Bloggers right legal system. I believe Twitter probably getting involvement too since it was known as mini blogs.

First Look! – eToysJapan.com


Here is another toy shop I discover way back on April during my search in Google. I didn’t take an opportunity to introduce this toy shop because the pre-order for Henkei Hound was very late shipping out last month. So I decided to hold until the right time to post once received the parcel.

eToysJapan.com is quite rare and very unknown company to me. Yes, it’s not even popular and less information about them in the market. So it’s hard to rule out that they aren’t trusted toy seller. Just take extra precaution when purchasing things from them even though I only made one successful order only.

For your information, their original office or HQ is mention station at US. However, the business and facilities operated in Hong Kong. So they are believed largely targeting Asian buyers. The good things are for pre-ordering, buyers doesn’t require make full payment. Only deposit is needed and no deadlines for most pre-order items until it reach the order limits. The shipped out items will be based from Hong Kong so it’s affordable and faster shipping to Brunei too.

How about the price? It’s hard to say but I do admit they are little more expensive compare to others. It really depends, for example my order for TF Henkei Hound only cost me US$20.90 while RK sold US$28.90 during pre-order period. My suggestions here are check and compare the price first before making any orders.

Another Internet Problem Yesterday


No one knows what the heck happen yesterday. It were confirms the every eSpeed users are having trouble accessing to a lot of website. Facebook was among one of them. Trust me, people feel so disasters and impatient unable to access and even played Farmville. One of my colleagues actually dealing such auntie don’t believe probably the eSpeed were the cause. So she calls every of her friend who plays Farmville and even to Canada to check with her daughter if the Facebook is down or not. What? CANADA? I really laugh so hard hearing about this.

But after she told us it was fine over there. My suspicious turning over the exchange server in both KB and Seria because even at my company. The test out also experience the same issue at my home so I decided to sent an email to notify Telbru. After lunch hours, everything backs to normal. As I suspect, there could be something wrong in the exchange servers. Well the technical support guys didn’t says anything and I not even sure if BSB and Tutong were affected.

This also proves one point that either the Telbru IT were doing something or not doing their daily check. But I am much more pissed off that unable to have any stable torrent download lately for almost coming two months now. These fuckers might be doing some shitty installing some new hardware controlling and blocking the torrent traffics. The only time tje torrent works only starting at 5AM+ to 7AM+. That was suck and hard completing any download files within two hours limit. As far I know BSB is working fine and even some KB areas were unaffected. That really pissed me off greatly and decided filed the second complains to Telbru. I don’t believe the undersea cable were damage because that was already over last weeks.

3rd Party Headmaster Preview


Hari Raya really gets in my way when it comes to posting. The review was still under revise and 20% done due to the recent leg was injured. The lazy diseases started spreading throughout my brain and taking nap a lot during holidays.

hot5[1]

Anyway, this is one of the 3rd party Transformers upgrade I have been holding off quite a while. The pre-production Hot Head (from Headrobots.com) mini review was posted at Cybertron.ca. I have to say the upgrade looks really cool even for older Vintage G1 Headmaster toys. Not only have that, the Hot headed itself even able to hold any 3rd party LEGO weapons so that is an extra.

The only problem now for me is, should I put US$29.90 this month. I pretty overspending lately buying Micromaster Toys at eBay and some order from HLJ haven’t clear up yet. It sure really sucks for me this month.

HG1/144 Xist Cgue



The Gunpla was finished on end of last month public holiday. Nearly forgot to post it up while starting working on the next Seed Frame Astray kit. As you can see on the photos, I have done a few changes to the lower part for some training and feel requires improvements.


The front skirt armors have been extending longer using the Tamiya pla-plate. With my current tools, it’s not easy and really requires different angle rulers to measure before cutting. Mine is by estimate (too long) and slowly sand until both of them reaching the similar size and length which is why it looks out of shape. There is another reason for this problem, I used wire rod for the joint and causing unbalance because I cut it directly instead saw. If I had done choosing with sawing, it may not look so bad.


As for the back armor skirt, my original plan is adding extra thruster below like how Sazabi Gunpla. I don’t have any available thrusters and materials so I use Kotobukiya Nozzle for both front and below. It turns out quite good so I decided try not to spoiled any further.


The back of the armor leg has also cut to allow more movement for the thruster. Not much, however the leg is now able to pose more than before.

Overall the build time for HG 1/144 Xist Cgue took me two and a half days to finish before moving on to another. You can click more to view the rest. The Google weren’t so kind letting us putting to much photos on the front page.

Nanyang Shopping: Power Core Combiner


No idea what is the best category to list the Nanyang company. All you need to know they sell toys, gifts, produce photos, sell cameras and quite few more I have no idea to describe it. What surprising thing was that they have been around even I hasn’t born yet. Thanks to them, the forever toys loving habits everything influence from there.
I always visit the Nanyang shop once in a month and gets the Tamiya colors spray painting there. It just that sometimes I ignore the toy sections after addicted shopping online instead. I have to admit so stupid overlooking the local toy shops when you can get 15%-20% cheaper. For example my recent purchase TF Power core Combiners: Smolder with Chopster, Bombshock and Skyburst sets. Both of them only cost me B$79.70. If I choose to get in Robotkingdom.com, the total would have cost me B$114.79. It really does save me a lot of money. Well, i guess from now on i have to be more supportive on more local toy shops. ^^
Alright, as for the toys, I decided to keep it short here. Probably most of you already read about mixed review reactions feedbacks from the TF community. For my own opinion, yes, there are different transformation design flaws on each Power Core Combiners toys especially during combination with the drones. Some look good and some don’t. Some even looks good rather not combining. But so far it’s not a disappointments toy either and quite liking them too.

eBay Hunt ! – TF Micromaster #1


Last few days ago just received the first batch packages. I am quite happy that both of them arrived on the same days and takes only two weeks to Brunei which is quite fast. I thought during puasa month would be slower during transit. Somehow I was wrong about it.

Currently these are the four Micromasters toy arrived. Three of them comes from direct purchased and one won from the bidding (very cheap and incomplete) both at eBay UK. For your information, all these four are 1989 released Erector transport, Ironworks station, Greasepit station and lastly, Ground Shaker Base. Total costs with shipping, £84.56 which is around B$175.43. Probably most of you think I am insane paying a lot but this is not a bad price for 1989 made used toys.

I have reason to choose UK location. Firstly it has better shipping with tracking (insured) price to Brunei compare to US. Secondly, most of the seller’s prices are better, not to mention willing to combine shipping with one cost. It’s not like the US seller’s don’t, everything depends. Right sellers and time is the key in eBay. Nope, I’m not intending to look for MSIB version, I am fine with old used toys because I can mold it and spray paints. However, mind you, only Micromaster and Headmaster were the only interests.
