[Toy News] The Trading Arts Kai Mini Checklist And Predictions

Final Fantasy Trading Arts Kai Mini is already on my radar since the announcement of the volume 1 which includes Cloud Strife (FFVII Advent Children), Squall Leonheart (FFVIII) and Yuna (FFX/FFX-2), but I didn't pick one on the first day of its release... because I'm focused on obtaining my first Play Arts figure that day.

Ok, I just started to collect these little things. So let's list the already released, upcoming and potential FF TAKMs.

[Toy Related] Characters That I Want To See To Be Made As A Play Arts Kai Figure

There are characters that Square-Enix miss that deserves to be made as an action figure... maybe because they won't sell well, yet some of them have potential. I will list these characters (even oldschool) that I want so see made as an action figure. These characters are from SQEX only.

[Toy Review] No. 06: Lightning Final Fantasy Trading Arts Kai Mini

It's been a while. I haven't reviewed any toys lately, because I don't have enough money to buy any Play Arts (Kai) figures. So, I bought an alternative... Trading Arts Kai Mini! The chibi figures that I also wanted to collect. My first TAKM figure is Lightning... a funny coincidence that she is also my first Play Arts Kai figure in my collection and her stock are also running low too at this time lol.

Before we start I wanted to say something about the Trading Arts Kai Mini brand name. I think this should be called Play Arts Kai Mini because these little figures are playable and you can see the contents in the packaging not like the old, static, tradeable and totally-random-because-you-can't-see-what's-inside-the-box Trading Arts Mini (TAM)... So let's get started with the review. :D

[Random] Fish-eye Camera Lens Adapter Testing

Finally we got an alternative solution to our fish-eye lens needs.
We bought the lens adapter for a good price since the real fish-eye lens costs more than the actual DSLR

I'm so excited that I didn't go straight home and did some testing (photo and video) to our local skate spot
