Minor Landslide Near My Place

The rain continues pouring since yesterday till now. This morning, I went web surfing after my sahur, the last one for this Ramadan. Suddenly, I hear a loud crashing sound at around 6.00 am. I immediately look outside. A landslide has occurs causing two boulders to gave way. One of them almost uproots the palm tree while the other knocked down one of the car park's poles. Luckily, no car is damage.

Raincoat by Borders ???

Borders is expanding their business to weather the current economic crisis.

Concept Art for TFA Prowl by Derrick Wyatt

This is the concept art for TFA Prowl by Derrick Wyatt, Lead Character Designer for Transformers:Animated. Both picture and excerpt are from his blog, A Delightful Tedium, which I've added to my blogroll.

" I had originally had him colored more like the black and white G1 version. Since Ratchet was already going to be primarily white, and the ninja aspect of the new Prowl's character was going to be played up, we decided to go with the black, gold and tan theme.", Derrick Wyatt.

Berebut "Ben 10" dengan Amir

This just happen before Amir goes to bed tonight.
FYI, Ben 10 is Amir's favorite cartoon. Adibah like it as well.

Abah : Amir ada Wildmutt, XLR8, Cannonbolt ngan
Benwolf. So, Amir ambik dua, Abah dua.
Amir : No, Abah ... Amir dua, Amir dua. (2+2=4)
Abah : Abah dua, Amir dua.

The last two lines were repeated a couple of time.
And then ....

Amir : Not fair ...
Abah :(speechless)
Mak : Huh ... (terkejut sama)

Amir tried out for Transformers' casting

Here's Amir Hamzah trying out for the role of Megatron, Bumbleebee and Blackout before Michael Bay told him that they would prefer using CGI instead.

Spotlight - TFA Activators Wave 1

The TFA activators is a line of action figures base on "Transformers: Animated". It has a push button feature for quick transformation, i.e. it's for those who wants to see split second transformation, such as my son.

"Abah, tukar bah ... Abah, tukar robot. Mir nak robot. (2 seconds after I transform it to a robot.). Mir nak car pulak. Abah, tukar bah ...", Amir.

Bumbleebee the yellow robot. I bought this for Amir.

Starscream. I'll keep this first because I do not want to open the box for the complex version of Starscream yet.

Bulkhead. I'll keep him as this is the only version of Bulkhead that I have bought. Don't want to spend the extra cash for the bigger version.

The Yellow Robot

The Yellow Robot is inspired by one of the famous Autobots, Bumbleebee, which is a yellow robot that turn into a yellow car. The car used to be a Volkswagen Beetle in the original cartoon but is a cool Camaro in the 2008's movie. Plus, the best picture that I superimposed Amir is on Bumbleebee so that's why I'm using it as my icon.

A blog is born ......

A blog is born ...... out of boredom. Yes, I'm getting bored and in desperate need of a new hobby. Actually, I have one but I need something simple, cheap and prone to my children disturbances. The problem is that I am a huge fan of Transformers and have build up a collection but I have to store them away unless I'm willing to share with my son. That's a BIG NO .. NO .., especially knowing how destructive he can be. This created the mundane task of taking them out and putting them back into the storage boxes whenever I want to *ahem* ... look at them. Furthermore, this quality time is restricted to my son's sleeping hours. Hopefully, I can use this blog as an outlet to display my collection. Plus at the same time, I could ramble and complain about other things as well. Let see how long this new hobby will last.
