Mega Man is my second
Amiibo figure in my collection. Like
most Amiibo, I wasn’t planning on getting him but once I saw the final version
he looked too cool to pass up on. I’ve never
really been a big fan of Mega Man games (I suck at them), but this figure just
came out perfect. Mega Man also reminds
me of Astro Boy (a cartoon I grew up watching) so I had to buy this figure.
Mega Man is painted
in his traditional blue colourway, with light blue and a metallic blue that shines
nicely. Although his face doesn’t have a
lot of detail, it’s still clean and an important focal point of the figure. Finding him at first was a little difficult,
but eventually retail stores did receive more figures of him. I really love this toy, and I believe his popularity
will grow over time because he’s a rare Capcom figure.
Well, I finally have my
first Amiibo and what better way to start off a collection than with Toon Link. My intentions were to initially buy Amiibo Link
from series 1, but once I saw the final release I passed on him. I just didn’t like the ugly yellow stand and
the way Link was facing, so it was a hard decision on passing him. Thankfully, Nintendo did release a proper
Link figure in the form of Toon Link.
Toon Link was released
around February 2015, and was part of wave 3 that was compatible with Super
Smash Bros. Wii U. He retailed for $13.99
Can ($12.99 US), and attainting him was fairly easy within the first week of
I never planned on
getting into Amiibo, but once I saw Toon Link I knew I had to get him. The design of the card back and the figure is
neat and colourful (containing that Nintendo magic). For now, I plan to keep my collection mint on
card because I prefer to display them that way.
And with a great “must-have” figure like this, I can’t wait to see what
other classic character is released in the future (NES Link –fingers crossed).
I needed a new pair
of sunglasses so I decided to buy a pair of Oakley’s. This is my first time buying Oakley’s because
honestly I’ve never cared much for expensive glasses. My last pair I bought for less than $15 and
they lasted me over 5 years. While I do
care for name brands, I just felt like I didn’t want to have to take special
care for them when I wore them. But
since Oakley is a popular brand, I’m sure they will be able to take the
punishment and resist my use.
The model I bought is
called Garage Rock and the item number is 009175-13. The frame design is similar to wayfarers,
which makes them stylish and classic. I
like them because they’re large and can fit my fat face. I also like the fact that the lenses give out
a shiny colourful (purple-bluish) refection when the sun hits them, yet provide clear vision for my eyes. I can’t wait
till summer to not only show off my glasses, but also enjoy the outdoors.
