Rider Masked Collections : New Type Exclusive

May 2010 was the date that NewType: The Live issue 5 release. The release also included a supplement which is the Rider Masked Collections featuring Kamen Rider W (Double) Cyclone/Trigger form in conjunction with the release of Vol.7 of Rider Masked Collection in April 2010. The Cyclone/Trigger is deem exclusively for New Type The Live Magazine and wont be available elsewhere. Collectors that wants to complete all Rider W (Double) forms will have to buy this magazine to get the Cyclone/Trigger form as well.

The Magazine is not thick but is chock full of info on shows, toys and merchandising of Toku shows. Then the box packaging that houses the un-assemble Cyclone /Trigger form rider masked collections. The box and magazine are glue together.

Inside the box are the cardboard foldout with a center opening for putting the Rider Masked in it with a bubble wrap bag to protect the masked from getting damage. Unfortunately the downside of this is that the Exclusive Masked does NOT contain a Stand for it. Hence collector need to get an extra stand for the Cyclone/Trigger form for display. Am still contemplate on whether to keep this or not, only time will tell.

Mcdonald's Happy Meal - ICE AGE 3

I know, i know, this is late... way way out late but still this is a good set worth mentioning. Ice Age has come a long way since its 1st shown in cinema a couple of years back. The show introduced us them farny and irresistible character like Scrat with his quest for nuts, Sid, Manny, Ellie, Diego and don't forget the twins Crash and Eddie.

So with the 3rd installment of ICE AGE, our heroes has a new story, new character and new places to explorer. McDonalds are proud to present ICE AGE 3: Dawn of the dinosaur kids toys with its Happy Meals from 2nd July to 29th July 2009. Yes that's 2009!.

There are 8 character to choose from and basically there be Scrat, Sid, Diego and Manny the original core character, then there's the new character which is Scratte (Scrat partner), Buck, Rudy and Momma Dino.

This time the toys will have a thermal feature on them which when rubs with warm temperature (ie.. your fingers) will reveal something related to the characters. Each Character will have a green color leaf like thermal feature on them.

Not much articulation on them maybe except for Buck, Rudy and Momma DINO. Momma DINO has a changing head feature too (head of difference expression). That about it, good quality but not much playability. More for display.
