#SuperBowl 2016 TV Spots #SB50


And while it was the first day the Chinese Lunar New Year here in Singapore, the annual Super Bowl raged-on in the United States, which saw a series of feature films being represent by their TV Spots! Featured here in this single blogpost are a select few - scroll down to view them ("again", if you already have, all good!), and ENJOY!


Singapore's MBS / Marina Bay Sands and the ECP gets devastated in the latest Independence Day: Resurgence spot (from approx 0:23 seconds mark-in), and as well there's a new poster too! (We Singaporeans always gets kinda air-fist-punchy when we get represented on celluloid tho, even if it meant "disasters" ~ LOL)




Classic villain "Krang" is teased here in the latest spot for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows - which already included "Bebop and Rocksteady", "Casey Jones" and a new "Shredder" already! Totally bang-for-the-retro-buck on characters in this installment, methinks!


Fly to Metropolis & Gotham with Turkish Airlines - with this duo promo videos featuring "billionaires" of either cities in Batman v Superman - with "Lex Luther" for Metropolis, while "Bruce Wayne" promotes "Gotham" (something totally out of comicbook character as Bruce is drawing attention to his "public" self more … at least the Snyder version is different from the comicbooks, I guess?).


(Also blogged on #popcornX + #manofsteelmovie)

(Also blogged on #popcornX + #xmenonfilm)

The key-focus for X-Men: Apocalypse here, for me in this spot was most definitely the appearance of Olivia Munn's "Psylocke" for more than a headshot (in the last trailer), in a sequence that she's brandishing her psychic knife "in action" - and it is glorious geekboy-action, without a shadow of a doubt, c'mon! (Then of course there's THAT Psylocke versus Deadpool video …)


Ant-Man makes an appearance in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, and sides have since been chosen for both #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan … Which side would YOU chose?


And speaking of "Ant-Man", the final featured video is for a product, but utilizing characters from the comicbook movies: Ant-Man versus The Hulk (using the likeness of actor Mark Ruffalo from "The Avengers) - with the two different sized characters fighting over … a can of "Coke Mini"? (Reminds e of airline coke cans anyways, doesn't it? Heh).

OTHER movies featured as well include yet another Deadpool, and even 10 Cloverfield Lane had some sort of allusion to "monsters" (but I'm not biting yet…) … and "Jason Bourne" returns with actor Matt Damon, this time in a movie where he doesn't need to be rescued! LOL

Harry Potter Manga

Would be nice if it came with an image or a pic tho...

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on


Having first read the page with no images in the local newspaper earlier in the week (baffled me so with that page featured above), I finally gave in to my curiosity and googled for "Harry Potter Manga" and found out how the boy wizard and his fellow fictional fellows were gonna look, in their next incarnation as chibified-manga characters! But instead of being in serialized sequential comicbook-styled stories, they are printed on folders and made for sale only in Japan. PSYCHE!

"The artwork is the result of a collaboration between a Japanese design firm and a film studio, according to the Guardian. In all, 13 Harry Potter characters got manga treatment. In addition to its eponymous hero, there was also Ron and Hermione, Dumbledore and even Harry's messenger owl Hedwig. The backside of the pictures feature animals representing the four houses of Hogwarts." (Thanks to Yahoo!News)

Look for Artion Association at Booth No.5 and grab their "Artion Puzzke Milk Mart version" if you can!

Scroll down for more snaps of their booth from yesterday :)

Introducing PROJECT #ZERO from NVDRS


Francesco Schiraldi of Italy based NVDRS introduces "PROJECT #ZERO" - whereby this 3.5 inch tall DIY figure consists of three separable pieces: Face, Body, Base, and where "The simple shape encourages and invites also the more classic colouring customizations.", shares Francesco, who further added;
"Because NVDRS is a design studio, we imagine #Zero not as a simple toy but like a real customizable project. Everyone can choose from alternative faces or bases with the help of  the NVDRS crew and they can also request the CAD file to create directly their own one. Just as an example, it is possible also to create accessories through 3D printing."
"Project #Zero, was born as an error during the design of another kids game made of wood. To test the people reaction and to joke, a #Zero picture was sent to various retailers. They responded with great curiosity and interest, not finding it in any catalogue."
Combinable in six different colours, the first pieces and the press images will be ready in mid-February.

Skippy Mini Figure from FUK2 (*Warning: Toy Nudity*)


Lance (@renonelab) shares with TOYSREVIL a headsup about "SKIPPY" - a fella who skips "skin" instead of "rope", using his own .. well, the images speak for themselves, don't it? Dude, just don't trip and step on it tho…! Heh.
"He's a resin mini figure based off a character from #fukseries2 artist Rodger Beck (@rodgerjames). Sculpted by Andrew Scribner (@rufusart), plus (packaging) from me @renonelab."
Skippy is currently on sale here for US$35.00 (plus shipping). The first run on muscle pink (so "apt" heehee) is 15 in this batch but will be limited to an edition of 50.
