Christmas Gifts 2012

I just realized that I haven't posted the presents I received last Christmas and of course, I'll only post the toys here haha. I think this is also my way to show gratitude for these gifts and I am very happy that my friends and family support my hobby :D

The first one I got is from a family friend in Qatar. I'm not really sure how they learned about my interest in vintage cars. I'm so surprised when they gave me this. A Maisto 1:24 1967 Volkswagen 1600 Squareback. Seeing this car reminds me of pictures of the old days though, I wasn't born yet at that time LOL.

It has opening doors which most model in this scale has. I also love the rims they are very classic.

And like the VW Beetle, the trunk is in front. It's just frustrating that Maisto didn't add too much detail on the interior parts here.

But I thought it would be a nice ride for the boss.

The next one is my cousin's gift to me. This one is so funny because she was really excited to give this to me and she kept on telling that it is for my collection. When I asked what is it, she said it is from Star Trek but she's not familiar with the character. I started laughing because I didn't even watched Star Trek and generally speaking, I don't know anything about Star Trek haha. I remembered I saw some of these figures on sale in a toy store so I told her about that but she denied that it is on sale LOL!

Anyway, it's the thought that counts so it doesn't matter to me who this character is and of course it is my cousin's present haha so I'm definiltely keeping it in my collection... if I don't, she won't give me another toy present next Christmas. Errr..

The package includes the figure (Original Spock), his base, extra hand, and another base.

This is the back part of the packaging. I don't know anyone of the characters LOL. But that Transporter Room that you can build when you complete the series is so cool. It reminds me of the Iron Man Armory.

So that's all. These are two toy presents I received last Christmas hahaha always like a kiddo.. I hope you enjoyed reading too.

P.S. If you noticed, I changed my watermark because until now I'm trying to improve it hahaha. And also I tried using a blue backdrop for a change. I would love to try other colors next time as well :)

Thanks for visiting Hobby Dumpy. 'til next time :)

Wreck-It Ralph

Hi guys, I just want to share my newest toy and also my newest Disney favorite, Wreck-it Ralph! I just got it yesterday and I'm very happy that's it's available here locally I don't need to find it online. I already bought the two main characters and here they are:

Ralph, he is the bad guy from the game Wreck-it Ralph but in reality, he really wants to be the good guy.

This is the back side of the packaging. I'd definitely get the Fix It Felix Jr. next time. The Hero's Duty Ralph seems the hardest to find here. A piece to hunt :D

Vanellope from the game Sugar Rush. She's a glitch character but eventually she'll find out that she's the main character of Sugar Rush.

Back side of the packaging. I'm not sure if I should also get the other two other racers though.

Okay I think I'm done here. I won't unbox them for now because I'm too lazy for a review hahaha! Maybe when I already have the Fix It Felix so stay tuned LOL.

Thanks for looking :)

HW Mystery Machine

As a collector, finding the item (toy) that you're looking for by yourself is like finding a treasure even for others it's just a regular piece of metal.

Last week, Pop, Mom and I went to the mall with our friends which supposed to be a road trip but it turned out to be a mall hopping. At the department store, the first section you'll find at the entrance is the toy section so the first thing I did was look for toys! Haha but.....! not for me but, for my nieces. At first, I didn't find anything that will suit my taste but when I went back, I spotted these three treasures that I wouldn't just find in our local stores - means the competition of treasure hunting in our country is tight LOL!

I'm quite happy that I acquired these three Mystery Machines and I'm planning to sell my extras $$$ LOL.

Okay that's all for now. 'til next time ;)

Adventure Time Deluxe Finn

First off, I'd like to greet everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! For the record, this is also my blog's first new year celebration and I'm very happy that it's still alive and... blogging! LOL.

In my last post, I mentioned that I can't share any toys to you for the meantime because I left all of them in the Philippines as I am on a vacation now with my family here in Doha. Although I missed blogging so much, I just looked at it as an advantage to me as I am actually saving a lot because there are no toys around. Well, that's what I thought.

This morning, my toy-diet program has been broken. This is when my dad brought me to Toys R Us in Doha! I am already aware about the Toys R Us here because they were telling me about it and they even bought me toys  from there. It's just, when I came here, the idea of toy hunting is not in my top list... and now... my freedom from toys is all gone LOL! Not that I don't want it :))

So here is my very first toy haul for 2013... A ten inches Adventure Time Deluxe Finn!

I had hard time choosing because what I was really looking for is Jake but he's only available in 2 inch size. I just gave the salesperson our phone number so they could inform us when the 5 inch Jake will be available again. They said he's the best seller :(

This Finn figure is also nice. Rather than getting the smaller 5 inches, I chose this one. Details are good as well as the articulations.

And this is the reason why I bought it hahaha! The third one is my favorite LOL.

The package also includes two accessories, Finn's bag and a sword.

I guess I may just buy the two inch Jake and put him inside the bag (light bulb!)

Finn's arms are flexible (rubber) just like in the cartoon.

His hips can be rotated.

And same with his head.

"I'm not afraid of the ocean..."

All in all, this figure is really good.. but not a perfect one for it's price. I'm happy to get this for the new year. I hope I'll be able also to acquire Jake soon :D

Again, happy new year everyone. Best wishes! :D
