this car will score a perfect 100% if it's not because of the weight. it feel just like the ferrari california when holding in hand. by the way, i notice some of the car came with slightly light blue colour and some slightly darker colour. variant? un-even painting? error? i'm not sure. hehe.

some hypermarket restock hotwheels and matchbox stock today, and this Holiday Hot Rod 3 cars pack is one of the new stock that i saw for the first time in our local market. sorry for the blur pic... =.=" but don't worry i'm very sure soon this 3 cars pack will flooded in our market.

each pack consist of 3 cars, and it has a total of 8 different cars.
1. Cadillac Escalade
2. 65 Chevy Impala
3. Swoop Coupe
4. Chaparral II
5. Olds 442
6. Whip Creamer II
7. Austin Healey
8. Sweet 16

all these cars are not really my cup of tea, and with the selling price of RM19.90, i'll pass it for the time being.

some other sighting today are matchbox 5 cars pack is selling @RM10 !! that's a steal man. lol.

needless to say i bought all the matchbox 5 cars pack there. lol. i'll keep some of it and the other will be a perfect present to some children during x-mas time. hehe.

Jusco Maluri also restock 2 boxes of mustang wave today. except the mustang and DD, all the other nice car that came in this wave still hang nicely on the rack. this store is also one of the suspected doom store in my list before time will come for me to confirm it. oh btw this jusco also restock at quite a number of matchbox basic cars and it's selling at RM4.90 only. this is what i bought. new wave? hmm....

i think there's at least 3 boxes of matchbox cars restock and all are pour into a big bin. there are still a lot of nice car to grab there eg, icecream truck, mazda 2, mitshubishi l200, merc benz slr etc.

Kotobukiya - HoiHoi-San

some little background of hoihoi-san extracted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichigeki_Sacchu!!_HoiHoi-san

"In the year 20XX, insects have become immune to all pesticides. To combat the rising plague of cockroaches and other household pests, the tiny, doll-like extermination androids known as "Hoihoi-san" were created. They can hunt down insects and kill them with such miniaturized weapons as minuscule machine guns and tiny combat knives. They can also (and at the same time) be treated as dolls, by dressing them up in costumes and buying accessories for them. The main robot of the anime wears a maid uniform and rabbit ears as accessories."

i place an order in hlj for this model kit the moment i saw its pic on the net even not knowing any background of this cute little girl. lol. only a handfull of hobby shop in KL bring in kotobukiya stock. so it's better for me to pay a little bit more extra to bring it in from hlj rather than miss it totally later.
