But I'm ok now in the sense that my nose is recovering. Still coughing on occasion (thanks a lot, dusty room), but fear not, friends, I should be perfectly fine by the time orientation for my summer school starts. On the plus side, my friend from grad school came to visit yesterday, and we had so much fun! Managed to catch Finding Dory in theaters, then hit up Target and brought movie merchandise (and school supplies -- she's a speech therapist, so she's naturally always looking for things to use for her kids). Came back, talked a bit, and then I launched into messing around with the present she got me for my birthday but couldn't deliver it until we met in person, while she whipped out her phone and the Digi-Bird I gave her and made it sing "This Old Man" and a few other tunes. And I'm telling you, that thing is INSANE.



Gao Falcon is a massive beast of epic wing proportions. It is by far one of the largest toys in the Power Rangers Wild Force toyline, larger than even the Alligator I reviewed a while back. The box boasts that the Falcon Zord has a 530mm wingspan, and do you know how that translates to inches? 20.8. Yeah, I'm gonna need a bigger shelf.


Here he is out of the box. As you can probably tell, his wings had to be assembled, hence the break along the middle where that red nub juts out. Otherwise he wouldn't fit in the box! Being a Korean release, it was really. REALLY. HARD to pose him, as the rachet joints in his legs were replaced by friction joints and don't lock in place, so he almost always wanted to topple over since the wings make him top heavy. However, posed right, he makes a majestic animal. In the show he would burst out of a volcano like a fiery phoenix when summoned, and dwarfs all the other animals that combine with him. ALL OF THEM.
This is one BIG BIRB )

Gao Falcon is a fantastic addition to my collection. The sheer size of it destroys me though, because I was so not expecting it to be so large! I mean, I knew it was large, but until I saw it in person I didn't know it was, you know, THAT BIG. I'm definitely gonna need a bigger shelf soon. ^^

Sure, volunteer work was slow, but then the mailman came in with STUFF! *grins*

Could have done without her dropping one of the boxes right in front of me as she came up the sidewalk, but thankfully nothing broke. However, the box cutter slipped as I was slicing open the cardboard and luckily bounced off my thick hoodie, or I might have disemboweled my stomach right there. Yikes. This is why it is always important to have a good grip on sharp objects! D8

Also Sis is graduating Chinese school today! I won't be there to see the ceremony, as it's about the same as mine, and I'm too busy watching Dad's Father's Day tribute to my late grandfather upload itself to Dropbox for our relatives to watch. I would have uploaded to Youtube, but censorship overseas means it's unavailable, and I have had to look for alternate sources. I also need to break out the o' drawing tablet to make Dad a personal card, which will probably, as usual, feature him as his ponified self getting flowers or something from us. :P (Dad: KIDS YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING TOO MUCH MY LITTLE PONY STAHP.)

Anyway, below the break you'll find the usual toy review. This could be long, so might want to grab some popcorn if you want to read...

In which I blow up LJ with yet ANOTHER picspam... )
