Thank God for a great day in Seattle, Washington: Sept 17th, 2015

Woke up early at 4AM. Waited for sunrise and everyone to wake up. Took pics of my friends backyard. Chickens and Squirrels!

Favorite hangout spot for them.

Thank God for a great day in Seattle, Washington: Sept 16, 2015

 Back in Seattle once again.... for the 5th time in several years. This time I made an resolution not to do the same touristy stuff all over again. God made it work this time because my friend moved from Shoreline to Everett, so I focused mainly on those areas and beyond. I took an overnight flight from the previous day upon arriving. I couldn't sleep on the flight so I ended watching Terminator Genisys on the plane (it's my 3rd viewing). I arrived around 6:15AM in the morning. Got to my rental car which was Thrifty and the girl who helped me told me that Hawaii folks are usually her nicest customers. Awesome! So I made the drive to Everett and traffic was prevalent. Nevertheless, I decided to stop by Lynnwood to get Chick-Fil-A!


It was good. The tater tots were really salty though. I ordered myself coffee just to help stay awake and get some warmth. Seattle was really a nice sunny day by the way.

I finally arrived at my friend, Heath's house around 9:30AM. Had a bit to catch up and we decided to go to Legion park. However Legion park was closed due to some chemical issues. So we settled to chill for a bit at Forest Park. Bring your wife, kids or family for some downtime here.

Takara Tomy Unite Warriors Menasor UW-02 review part 2 of 2

Menasor! With Menasor now in the picture, the Aerialbots have met their match... or have they? How does Menasor do in comparison with Superion? Does it pale in comparison or is it another hit with Takara/Hasbro? Let the pics fly.

UW-02 Takara Tomy

 He looks decent, does he not? Sadly, the complaints start to appear here. He doesn't have the best hips in the world, nor is it that good looking. Because he has a bulky top thanks to Motormaster, Menasor falls a lot. This guy has trouble standing. Many fans have complained about how awkward he looks thanks to the hips once again, but there is a quick remedy for this though it still doesn't prevent him much from falling. He does look a little better but that still isn't saying much. You can toggle with his legs the way you want, here is how I prefer it if I wanted to. Not to mention it makes him a little taller.

Takara Tomy Unite Warriors Menasor UW-02 review part 1 of 2

Good September to you all! Been really busy as I finally got around to shooting some pics on the latest Takara Tomy combiner release: Menasor! So without further delay, let's get started!

Boxing and packaging:




So the Decepticon combiner comes in a box set very similar to the Superion set. You get the original Stunticon team which also includes Wildrider, who was originally omitted in the western release due to his departure from the team in the IDW comics. He was replaced by Offroad for a short period of time before the west decided to release their own version of Quickslinger (Slingshot) and Brake-Neck (Wild Rider). What is included here you see is the instruction manual and a quick cheat sheet ( I think) on how to transform the limbs in Japanese. Behind the manual is an artist rendering of the Stunticons on the race track doing their own racing. You can see Metroplex and the Aerialbots also in the background.
