Pre-order Sideshow Collectibles 1/6th scale "Evil Dead II" Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) figure

Pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles

“Groovy!”

Time to get revved horror fans – everyone’s favorite chainsaw-wielding hero is here! From Sam Raimi’s 1987 sequel, Evil Dead II, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to introduce the Ash Williams Sixth Scale Figure.

Capturing all that is awesome about Bruce Campbell as the cult classic icon, Ash Williams returns to the remote cabin in the woods where he must hack and slash his way past hordes of relentlessly deranged Deadites who want him dead by dawn. Just your average convenience store employee with a penchant for sweet-talking the ladies, the resilient, blood-stained survivor has been through hell and back in his torn shirt and brown pants. Thanks to the forces of darkness summoned by the evil Necronomicon, the glorious gorefest continues as Henrietta’s disfigured remains emerge from the cellar, dying to swallow his soul. But ‘armed’ with more than cheesy quips, Ash can definitely hold his own with his infamous chainsaw appendage, and handy sawed-off double barrel shotgun. Bring it on, baby.

Sideshow Collectibles 1/6th scale “Evil Dead II” Ash Williams 12-inch Figure specially features: Detailed likeness of Bruce Campbell as Ash from Evil Dead II, Unique male body with double-jointed chainsaw arm, Tailored and weathered costume with shotgun rig, as seen at the end of the film, Chainsaw, Shotgun, Four (4) interchangeable hands including: Shotgun grip, Relaxed hand, C-grip, Fist; One (1) pair of boots, Henrietta hand, Necronomicon.

This has been a nutty week.  Brian’s family has been here since the 26nd and we’ve been eating so wacky.  I really made an effort to count calories as best as I can eating out at strange places. I gained some water weight yesterday, which was… Continua a leggere

Operation #3 / Sessione operativa #3

On December 29th, I did plan to meet few friends and work some trains in a short “Christmas Session”. Unfortunately, most of people were still at work or do they have family business running. As a matter of fact, only my friend Silvano, my son Federico and myself could play that day. Instead of cancel the meeting, I’d rather prefer to schedule few trains and therefore we spent just a couple of hours working freight and passenger trains on the Cretaz layout.
Il giorno 29 dicembre avrei voluto pianificare una sessione operativa “natalizia”, ma molti amici erano ancora al lavoro, oppure erano impegnati con le loro famiglie. In effetti, solo Silvano e mio figlio Federico erano disponibili. Invece di annullare la sessione, ho preferito preparare pochi treni e giocare comunque.
 
Here a picture of the crew-of-the-day. From left: Silvano, Federico and myself

I scheduled only four trains: two freight’s and two passenger’s.

Freight trains were from staging yard “Nord”, passenger train (a Swiss IC chosen by Federico) from “Cretier”.
Il giorno prima avevo dunque preparato le switch list: due treni merci con origine dalla coulisse “Nord” ed un treno IC passeggeri che faceva la spola tra “Cretier” e “Lillaz”.
 
Operations have been run with a free timetable, not to stress the two “young” operators”.
Per non stressare troppo i due “giovani” operatori, la sessione si è svolta ad orario libero.
 
Compared to the last session held on August 2014, a lot of improvements have been made in the past year.
Miniera D’Arpy (coal mine) has been detailed, Cretier passenger stop and Edil-Cementi plant have been both finished. More, all tracks from Cretaz to staging yard “Sud” have been completed with overhead line and masts.
Il tracciato, verso sud, è stato aggiornato durante lo scorso anno.
La Miniera D’Arpy ha ricevuto numerosi dettagli, la fermata di Cretier e la Edil-Cementi sono state completate.
Inoltre, ora la linea da Cretaz alla coulisse “Sud” è completamente elettrificata.
 
To test new layout section, most of the operation have been scheduled between Cretaz and Cretier, with focus on Edil-Cementi plant.
Per testare a dovere il funzionamento, la maggior parte delle manovre ha avuto luogo tra Cretaz e Cretier, con particolare enfasi per la fabbrica Edil-Cementi.
 
 
And now, few pictures from the event
Di seguito alcune foto scattate durante la sessione
 
Federico and Silvano are working trains at Cretaz, Cretier and at Champlong.

Coffee break!!!
 
Even if only a couple of freight trains were scheduled, operators took almost two hours to complete all tasks. It was a great afternoon time, and I would thank both Silvano and Federico for playing with me!
Nonostante manovrassero solo due treni merci, le manovre da fare sono state di tale complessità (con incroci, precedenze, ecc.) da far durare la sessione quasi due ore. È stato un bel pomeriggio, e ringrazio Federico e Silvano per aver giocato con me!

MOM Toys 1/6th scale Ancient Greek Warrior 12-inch figure is another King Leonidas from 300

In 480 B.C. a state of war exists between Persia, led by King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Greece. At the Battle of Thermopylae, King Leonidas (Gerard Butler), king of the Greek city state of Sparta, leads his badly outnumbered warriors (300 Spartans) into battle against the massive Persian army. Though certain death awaits the Spartans, their sacrifice inspires all of Greece to unite against their common enemy.

300 is a 2007 American fantasy war film based on the 1998 comic series of the same name by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley. Both are fictionalized retellings of the Battle of Thermopylae within the Persian Wars. The film was directed by Zack Snyder, while Miller served as executive producer and consultant. It was filmed mostly with a super-imposition chroma key technique, to help replicate the imagery of the original comic book.

This isn’t the first 1:6 scale King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) 12-inch figure to be released into the market and I don’t think he’ll be the last either. Even though the movie has long played out (there’s even a sequel), King Leonidas seems to be constantly in demand. There’s the Good Smile Company 16 cm tall Figma 270 “King Leonidas” from 300 action figure previewed earlier on my toy blog HERE as well as the action figure review of the much sort after Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS114 “300″ 1/6th scale King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) 12-inch collectible figure with the seamless muscle body posted HERE, HERE and HERE. This is for those who couldn’t get their hands on the Hot Toys version or want to add more 12-inch Spartans to their 1:6 scale figure collection.
