Watch: Official Trailer - The Wolverine

I just posted the teaser trailer this morning, and now here we got the first official trailer of The Wolverine! 

Seriously other den showing the background story and the face of Silver Samurai, this clip never really revealed anything important (that's what I think). Hope they can reveal more trailers soon!

Taipei trip 2013: Our toy shopping in Taipei

Before setting off to Taiwan, I searched for the places to go for toys. But it turned out there are not many places that sells toys I collect until I saw some blogs and forums mentioning the Taipei City Mall which is located at Taipei Main Station underground shopping. They do have a variety of figures from Tamashii Nations, figma, Nendoroid and Banpresto, etc... They even have the Banpresto Ichiban Kuji lottery series, and almost every shop carries it! And thanks to that, we spent quite alot on the Ichiban Kuji lottery...

Other then the City Mall, we also went to Xi Men Ding for a short stay and went to the Wan Nian shopping Centre. I actually went there seven years ago during my army times, and my memory told me that the toy stores were located at the top floor. And without much effort we were able to find the toy shops. But because we spent too much at Taipei City Mall, hence we did not stay for too long at this area...

One of the shop have this display in front of their store, it is actually a model of the Wan Nian Shopping Centre, interesting model...

Other then Wan Nian Shopping Centre, we noticed there is also a toy shop which is located along Er Mei Street. But if you are against fake goods then you better avoid this shop. I took a good look on the toys in the shop and I am confident to say that most of them are not authentic... Although there are some which look quite ok to me. I even bought a Naruto Ichiban Kuji Chara Chibi figurines set there because I feel the figurines look 'quite authentic' (to me). I will be posting them here soon...

Basically toy sightings is not as common in Taipei compared to Hong Kong. But if you are into Japanese anime figurines then Taipei is a heaven for you. Most of the Japanese figurines are cheaper in Taipei compared to the pricing in Singapore. Overall we had a great toy shopping experience in Taipei and I hope we can visit Taipei City Mall again in the near future (with more 'ammo' of course). Thanks for viewing and please leave a comment if you have anything for me!
