So yeah, about 2 years ago I was drifting on a race track burning up free Dunlop tires and living the dream, now I'm doing toy reviews on Youtube and CollectionDX.com which is another passion of mine. Well the racing thing was AWESOME but it came to a halt due to bad business decisions, loss of sponsor backup and lack of funds. Did the racing thing for about 16 years so it got old and expensive. However, my time with cars was some of the best times I've ever experienced.
Now, Ive always been a HUGE fan of robot toys as far as I can remember. So now that I don't have cars to keep me occupied, I spend a lot of time messing around with robots.
So if you like robots, keep checking here as I post about my newest acquisitions! Maybe once in a while I'll throw in some old race car stories.
If you are here you have probably been following my videos on Youtube or written reviews on CollectionDX.com. Well now I've started a blog to basically provide a place to talk about my happenings from day to day. To start off my new blog, I will be talking a bit about my newest acquisition...my brand spanking new Super 7 Shogun Stormtrooper!
Super 7 must have shipped this to me in the Millenium Falcon because I got it FAST. I believe I ordered it Friday or Saturday and I got it today. The box is about 8-9 pounds! By the way, it is shipped with an awesome outer box which contains the actual box inside. Once I sliced open the packing tape and pried open the top flap, I was greeted with an inner box wrapped in tissue paper.
Right away I knew I had something special. I quickly removed the tissue and was blown away by an awesome Machinder inspired box. It has a beautiful chrome Star Wars logo. This logo is of the 70's variety.
When I pulled off the lid, I gasped when I saw the gigantic Stormtrooper wrapped in plastic with his trusty Blastech rifle and fist neatly laying next to him. Fist? yes a fist, this bad boy shoots his fist as a tribute to the great Machinder/Shogun Warriors of the past. It was a blow molded beauty. Mine is number 1058 out of 1200...If my memory serves me correct. I will have to check to make sure. Well I am very happy with it. It is standing next to my Shogun Warriors Golion...that's right a Shogun Warriors Golion, not Voltron nor the Popy Golion. This is a new release by Toynami. Check that out if you can!
