SG Market Watch - one acquisition, Blue Bacchus #2 and seeing double

So I was in Singapore over the weekend. Fly in fly out type of trip, just the 2 days.

As usual, went to CSC on Sunday and looked around.

Took a few pictures of the weekly "flea market", but really not much because "photographs are prohibited". Ah well... here are some shots.

Lots of toys in a cage


A random shop

Some G1s surprisingly - Overlord, Star Saber, Sky Garry... not bad

Some more boxed Japanese G1s and loose G1s

I know right? Not as exciting as Hong Kong. Overall, it was not bad, just didn't manage to take much pictures because I keep getting told "no photos". Why? I don't know.

I picked up 1, yes ONE, lone thing this trip - this, Blood the Dark Warrior upgrade set.

I then went to my brother's place to pick up my second Blue Bacchus, which has been sitting there since late September this year. There is a story behind this, but will save it for later.

Seeing double....

On the seeing double note, here are 2 more 2 mores that I have snapped awhile back but just not posted...

02 x Goodbye Convoy giftsets (these are #3 (left) and #2 (right))

02 x Goodbye Megatron giftsets

02 x D-307: Overlord MIB (left C9, stickers applied, C6.5 box; right near C10, stickers unapplied, unused)

  1. It's kinda funny how it took so long for you to find just one and now you have two! Isn't that always how it happens?

  2. @ Arkvander - yeah, it's like that isn't it. It doesn't just rain, it pours. What's even more ironic is that I actually secured my second piece within days of concluding the deal for my first piece (from Bodhar) cos I was negotiating in parallel.

    Thanks Adam and Andres!

  3. Your photos are always a pleasure to look at. The photo of the reissued Primus by Takara Tomy makes me want one, but I don't have the money right now. I just bought Blood the Dark Warrior upgrade set too. The main problem I have with that is the helmet pops off easily during transformation. Do you have the same problem too?

    Hi Aaron, I heard the 2010 Primus is quite nice. I don't have one either because I bought the original, with the Unicron head version some years ago. Blood upgrade is great and I have the same issues you have with the helmet popping off, but I think it was meant to allow easy changing of faces. The swords are really awesome huh?

    1. Yes the chrome finish definitely adds a nice touch! I'm guessing if Blood's head was less wobbly the helmet wouldn't pop off often. The upgrade is great, I just wish the skeletal head had better clearance between the shoulders and stability. I fear the helmet might crack or break if I'm not careful.
