Hong Kong - Day 1

Arrived at Hong Kong today at around 1pm. First thing I noticed once I got out of the plane was the intense heat, man I am having a workout just by walking around! Checking out went smoothly and I was out of the airport in about 20 minutes from arrival. My uncle and aunt came to pick me up from the airport.

Sure looks different from Toronto...

Dropped off my stuff at my uncle's place and then went for lunch. All of this for just $24 HKD (drink, noodles, bread/biscuit thingy), that's just a bit over $3 CDN! Cheap AND GOOD food...there's gona be a lot of this...hahahha

After lunch, we dropped by Mong Kwok to check out the well known "RC Heaven" and it sure did not disappoint! There were waaaay too many stores and stuff to check out and the prices were pretty much 50% of those in Canada. Also saw several toy stores that I will be sure to come back and check out. Will come back later for sure.

Look at all those Mini-Z bodies! These are just a small part of it, there are WAAAY more selection from other stores.

Had some Japanese noodles and dishes for dinner at Waraku(?)

Some green apple alcoholic drink...

Didn't get pictures of everything as I was already dead tired by this time...thought I was in one of my going to HK dreams again LOL

Let's get on with Day 2!

I didn't have any interest in displaying MOC Hotwheels before because the packaging we used to get here were the generic ones (all of them with the same packaging). But now that we got the new ones with an actual picture art of the car, I've been pegging them onto the wall beside my computer desk ever since. Wonder when I will fill up this wall?

TF Haul

Woohoo NEW TFA! And now that I've got Megatron, just need Soundwave!!! I wonder if they will do anymore WFC figures after these 4? I hope they do! I'll have a Warpath and a Starscream please!

Seriously Neca?

Seems like I have bad luck with Neca figures, specifically the Aliens/Predator figures. Last time, my Alien lost an arm right out of the package. Today I bought the Neca Classic Predator from a comic store, I only checked to see whether the paint job was good, thinking anything else would be the same. Got home, took him out of the packaging and noticed he was missing one of his knee armor pieces. I thought maybe it fell off while I was fiddling with it, but then I checked my "moc haul" picture and yup it was missing in the packaging already. I mean COME ON NECA!? I paid $20 and I expect a COMPLETE figure!

Exposed knee joint because of missing piece, this figure would have been great. But NECA QC is really bad.

I really want to buy more of this line, but I don't know what will tear off or be missing next time. I sent a message about this using NECA's customer service link, I will update this when they have replied.
