Toy Story Collectibles

2 weeks ago if my memory serves me right, it's on 17 May 2010.
I brought 2 DVD. Toy Story 1 and 2, which includes the making of Toy Story and interiews.
So I spent the entire afternoon watching it and I am amazed over it's characters, story and graphics.
On the dvd box it reads "Toy Story 1 - 1oth anniversary edition"... oh wow, did I really missed watching this that long?
Answer is "Yes", even longer as I found out at wikipedia it's was released in 1995!
For years, I've always thought I did watch Toy Story 1 but only to realised now that I've mixed it up with Small Soldiers. How silly of me! Heehee... I really blur!
My friend asked me why I like toys so much but didn't watch toy story.
I don't know why either??
Anyway, here's a new Toy Story fan who's 15 years late.

I just love the Toy Story 2 movie quote by Mrs Potato shouting out of Andy's room.

Spud Lightyear

Toy Story Alien

This is very small, only about 4 cm in height.
I brought this at one of the stalls on a Sunday market years ago.
So it actually makes this the first Toy story collectible I have!

Buzz Lightyear Popcorn carry tub
Make : Hong Kong Disneyland
Got this in 2009 when I visited the Hong Kong disneyland.
The tub was stuff with a lot of popcorns that I couldn't finish it on that day. LOL!

Space Wings Buzz Lightyear
Theme : Toy Story
Make : Mattel
Year : 2008

Space wings closed.
This is a good figure, looks nice on dislay.
The only problem is the closing of the left side wing is a little difficult intially.
But after a many tries...about 20 minutes of practice with my clusmy hands, I found out how to close the wings! LOL!

Rex & Woody
Theme : Toy Story 3
Make : Mattel
Year : 2009

My favourite Rex photo. Cute?

Woody is very well made by Mattel.
Great facial expression and good painting works for this figure.

Lomography Roll No.1

Lomography Photo Roll 1
Photo Date : 21 April 2010 to 27 April 2010
Camera : Lomography SuperSampler
Film : 35mm
Film Brand : Fuji Provia 100F(Expired)
Type : Color Slide

This is my first lomo photo try out.
I used the Fuji Provia because I wanted the photos to have a Turquoise slightly greenish tones kind of effect.
Photos shown in this post are the original colour without any touch up or colour change except for the blue one.
That I changed the colour of that photo with a blue/purple effect using an old photo software.
In a roll of 36 exposures, some of my photos turned out to dark or grainy but that's because I didn't head the advice of only using this cam in bright, sunlight conditions in the instruction manual. Heehee...
Especially taking portraits or very near objects, must really be taken only in very bright light conditions for this camera.
But still overall, it's a very fun experience with the camera.

Added a colour effect on this :
