Kidrobot Adventure Time Puff Jake N Lil Finn

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_Box_Front

Everytime we pop by the toy store on the weekends, I seem to see this Kidrobot piece sitting on the shelves. Being an avid fan of Adventure Time, I can remember of times I’d be whining about how awesome the toy is.

Recently, Cheryl bought it for me as a surprise! And lo and behold, I present you, the Kidrobot Adventure Time Puff Jake N Lil Finn Medium sized figure.

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_Box_Back

Striking on the side of the box, we see a graffiti scribbling of the Puff Jake N Lil’ Finn words. And the back showcases a graphic rendering of the toy.

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_Box_Top

The top of the box features Finn’s face, he doesn’t look too pleased. Nay, he looks badass!

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_Box_Bottom

In the usual Kidrobot fashion(I looove the way they do their packaging by the way), they left little tinges of easter eggs around the box. On the bottom, there is a little print that reads “designed with the feelings of liking someone a lot”. Aww.

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_Box_Flaps

And even on the flaps once you open the box! Gotta love the little detail bits they put into this. Appreciate the effort!

Ok now let’s get to talking about the figure itself, here we’re looking at a 6″ limited edition figure, with the stretchy “he-can-be-ANYTHING” Jake in the form of a parka, covering a badass looking Finn, who is also plugged in listening to some tunes from BMO. We can only assume Hip-Hop’s finest playlist playing, either that of the symphonica plonks of a modular synth.

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_Face

Finn’s face features a print/paint on, looking grim and fierce, with Jake looking all happy with a gleam in his eye.

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_BMO

Oh, and we can’t forget about little BMO, who’s clipped onto his waist.

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_Feet

On the back, we see Jake’s legs and his cute little tail dangling, one grip I have though, was Finn’s flat feet/shoes, no biggie, but would have preferred proper kicks and feet.

Kidrobot_Finn_Jake_Backpack_Sword

We also see Finn’s backpack and his sword! Which is a pretty neat touch! Nice details on the hilt too!

Am really glad to have gotten this piece! Now, to hunt for the elusive Jake and Rainicorn one.

Thanks for reading through this! If you’d like to see more of it, Cheryl and I have unboxed in this Rookie Collectibles episode.

Fast forward to 13:00mins to see it if Funko’s are not your thing.

Stay frosty! Keep collecting!

Collection Update JAN 2015

As in one of the posts last year, i have embarked on a collecting journey, albeit expensive, a rather interesting and relaxing one.

The people that i have met along this journey were nice, some, just out to cheat you and some not. I’ll put together a cheat sheet as to where you can find the cheapest and most bang for buck diecast sellers and places in another post soon. So do hang tight for that.

Meanwhile here’s an update to the collection in my room. I have since the start procured three Ikea glass cabinets, they set you back about S$90 a pop and have pretty ample space so why not. As this post is being written i have embarked on a little plan to do some modifications to the shelves to squeeze out that extra space that is wasted.

Now again, in all honestly since the very beginning I knew this was not a cheap hobby, but to me it was fun and intriguiging nevertheless.

Here is a picture blast on the individual shelves. Enjoy!

Kinder Surprise Airbus A330 Travel Edition

Its no surprise Kinder Surprise (see what i did there?) is not much of a surprise when it comes to toys for many. And i’ve never liked the chocolate to begin with. So i have always steered clear of the product.

On the way back from an overseas trip at the duty free shop in the airport, jean bought this for me. The Kinder Surprise Airbus A330 Travel Edition.

Its Kinder’s special collaboration with airbus for cool “in choco” swag. Well to be fairly honest its just cool little planes in chocolate.

It comes with 5 different liveries.

And a special Kinder Airbus A330 livery

And you can even flip the box around to use as a stand!

Its a pretty nice touch and the fact that this is a travel exclusive only found in duty free shops around the worlds makes it even cooler.

Can’t wait to see how much further this collaboration goes. Hopefully they do the A380 or the new A350.

Till then..
Stay chocolatey!
