Thank God for a good day in Maui 3/27/17 Day 1 Lahaina and Dragon's Teeth.

"All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." John 1:3 KJV


Maui no ka oi! Finally I was able to return to Maui after 8 years. Any changes? Albeit a few such like increase in traffic and some store changes, Maui remains mostly the same. I took a 10:00AM flight from Oahu and landed roughly around 10:30AM in OGG (Kahului Airport). Without delay, let's get started.

I checked into Maui Beach Hotel where my brother and his wife was staying the night before. Dropped our things and quickly headed out to Lahaina. First stop: Fuel for the body:

Star Noodle

 

Thank you Christina Leiting Hu for these foodie pics. 

Filipino Style Bacon and Eggs.



 














The food was onolicious! I had to eat less due to me having acid reflux-like issues, but this was a very good pit stop for all of us. We shared it of course, but even the Filipino Style Bacon and Eggs took me by surprise. This is a must try out place if you are in the Lahaina area. There is even a nice looking church adjacent to this place. The drawback is that many people come here so you may have to wait.

The Shark is laughing. No joke

Takara Tomy Transformers Unite Warriors LynxMaster aka Sky Reign UW-EX Review 2 of 2! Combiner wars

In our last episode, the owner of this blog was not too impressed with the pics he took. So therefore he tried his best this episode to make the pics look more sharper. Tune in now for the epic final conclusion of the Takara Tomy Transformers Unite Warriors LynxMaster part 2 review!

Lynx mode ( unofficial mode)

 














In the last review I was disappointed that Sky Lynx wasn't able to break up into two parts; one being his bird mode and one being the Lynx mode featured in the original G1 toys and cartoons.  The Lynx mode is featured here as the combined version when the warriors unite. This is probably the closest I can configure him into looking like his G1 Lynx mode. He looks like he is doing the hula in the above pics. Having too much fun I guess.

Takara Tomy Transformers Unite Warriors LynxMaster aka Sky Reign UW-EX Review 1 of 2! Combiner wars

LynxMaster is now up. I always debated whether I should had got the G1 re-release of Sky Lynx or not. Thank God I didn't for HasTak decided to release a classics version of him. With him are CW/UW versions of Hound, Wheeljack, Trailbreaker, and the exclusive Ratchet! I'm gonna say before you start viewing the pictures here and that is I hated some of how the pics turned out in the photoshoot especially the vs comparisons. They look really soft for the most part. I guess I still have to practice my photography. It's never ending in that aspect. Anyhow, Let's get started!

I bought LynxMaster from TFsource.com. I notice the TF figures that I buy are exclusives, they tend to come with a collector's coin plus outer boxing for the figure. For the comic, Sky Lynx and the crew are performing for Optimus Prime, Iron-Hide, Hot Spot, and what appears to be Blades. I could be wrong on the last guy. There are also some characters from the episode Carnage in C-Minor also dubbed the worst Transformers G1 episode in history. 

Looking good. I really love how LynxMaster stands tall on the box artwork. You can see a silhouette of Sky Lynx dropping the rest of the crew from the sky. 

A comic book was established for G1 continuity. You can read it here though it is in Japanese and it does not explain why Ratchet is still alive after he was killed in Transformers the Movie (1986). The comic also reveals Megatronia who is another Unite Warriors exclusive.

Thank Jesus for a good day in Moab, Utah 2/26/17 Day 4 of 4. Arches National Park 2 and finale.

 Return to Arches; we came back here roughly around 830AM to 900AM.

The Double Arch lies ahead. 





This was a nice hike. We were pressed for time so we ended the arch hikes here. It was nice while it lasted but thank you to Che and Tram for their time. It was a 3.5 hr drive back to Salt Lake City. We stopped by an Arby's for snacks and food.


Finale


 


 

Had the animal burger and animal fries. Never had In and Out burger for a while but I'm glad I did because it is still awesome! Went home the following day back to Hawaii. Had a layover in Los Angeles and watched a couple films on the jet. Came home eating ramen at Goma-Tei. Thank Jesus for a wonderful vacation in Utah.
