BIO INSPIRED (BID) 1/6th scale MAGIC KNIGHTS Series PORTHOS the LANCER

We will never grow tired of knights. Although a knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the monarch or country, especially in a military capacity, historically, in Europe, knighthood was conferred upon mounted warriors.

Knights were expected, above all, to fight bravely and to display military professionalism and courtesy. Ramon Llull's Book of the Order of Chivalry (1275) demonstrates that by the end of the 13th century, chivalry entailed a litany of very specific duties, including riding warhorses, jousting, attending tournaments, holding Round Tables and hunting, as well as aspiring to the more æthereal virtues of "faith, hope, charity, justice, strength, moderation and loyalty."

Check out ToysCity 1/6th scale Diorama series - Road culvert scene for 12-inch action figures

The word diorama /ˌdaɪəˈrɑːmə/ can either refer to a 19th-century mobile theatre device, or, in modern usage, a three-dimensional full-size or miniature model, sometimes enclosed in a glass showcase for a museum. Dioramas are often built by hobbyists as part of related hobbies such as military vehicle modeling, miniature figure modeling, or aircraft modeling.

The current, popular understanding of the term "diorama" denotes a partially three-dimensional, full-size replica or scale model of a landscape typically showing historical events, nature scenes or cityscapes, for purposes of education or entertainment.

Hot Toys Rogue One 1/6th scale Jyn Erso Collectible Figure (Deluxe Version) Review 1

This was part of my November 2017 haul - see the toy blog post HERE

Putting behind a checkered past by lending her skills to a greater cause, Jyn Erso is impetuous, defiant, and eager to bring the battle to the Empire. Used to operating alone, she finds higher purpose by taking on a desperate mission for the Rebel Alliance.

Jyn Erso is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by English actress Felicity Jones in the 2016 film Rogue One. Jyn is a former criminal who aids the Rebel Alliance in a desperate attempt to steal the plans to the Death Star, a powerful weapon possessed by the Empire. Critics have compared Jyn to the characterization of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in the Star Wars original trilogy and Rey (Daisy Ridley) in the Star Wars sequel trilogy.


This is the Hot Toys MMS405 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 1/6th scale Jyn Erso Collectible Figure (Deluxe Version) although from the picture you really can't tell whether it's deluxe or not as she is wearing the outfit (costume) that is included with the standard version. I enjoyed the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story even though it's a standalone piece and not part of any trilogy. I liked that some of the battles were on land, very gritty and realistic as compared to the CGI-laden battles in Episodes I, II and III.

It looks like Hot Toys is going back to the drawing board and trying to correct its mistakes. The Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS123 Iron Man 2 1/6th scale Mark IV Limited Edition Collectible Figure (released in December 2010) was plagued with the "pink panties" syndrome, a term coined by collectors who discovered that the groin region of the Mark IV armor began to fade and loose color quickly over time, resulting in the Mark IV looking rather silly with full dark red armor but pinkish panties.

Today, Hot Toys is thrilled to expand our MMS Diecast Series by presenting the new 1/6th scale Mark IV collectible figure and celebrate the new year of 2018! Built subsequently as a replacement of Mark III, the Mark IV armor is one of the fan-favorite classic Iron Man suit throughout the years since its introduction in Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 2.


Made with diecast material, the 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark IV collectible figure is meticulously crafted in reference to the appearance of the armor suit in Iron Man 2. The over 32cm tall diecast figure features a newly painted head sculpt of Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, interchangeable LED light-up helmet, movie-accurate proportion and highly detailed armor design with fully enhanced articulations, metallic red and gold painting on armor, interchangeable shoulder and forearm weapon-firing armor parts, LED light-up functions on eyes, palms, and arc reactor, a figure stand, along with the sunglasses, donut, and coffee cup from a very memorable scene in the film!

Mighty Jaxx's toy story is one of guts and glory

For Mr Jackson Aw, toys are certainly no child's play.

The 28-year-old is the founder of a multimillion-dollar toy design and manufacturing business. The business, Mighty Jaxx, began in 2012 as a $20,000 start-up. Today, it works with big brands like Warner Brothers and New Balance and is projected to hit $5 million in revenue this year.

Mr Aw's toy story is about following one's passion in school, even if it means taking a path less ordinary. After graduating from Nanyang Poly in 2009, Mr Aw started selling refurbished vintage cameras. The business was successful but he sold it off to a business partner in September 2012 to start something new.


After years of collecting toys, Mr Aw figured he should start a related business. He liked the idea of creating toys and not just buying them. So he visited some toy factories in China and was surprised to find out that the toys were made not by machines but humans.
