DragonBall Goku on Cloud Figure! Cute!

I got this yesterday, Dragonball young Son Gokou on Cloud. Its basically a mini pvc figure that comes with a display base and his staff. I've seen this many months ago but didn't manage to get it. Yesterday when I found it again, I snapped it up. It was the last piece in that comic shop. I don't see this often. I am not sure which toy co it came from, the packaging looks like bootleg. However the paint job on the figure is quite decent. The figure has no articulation. The display base has the DragonBall logo. It looks cool as a tabletop display.
Checked eBay - stores in Hong Kong selling for USD7 - USD11 each.

It's funny. I was at The Mall Cold Storage Supermarket looking for Pez. Based on previous visits, there weren't any Pez that interest me, usually it's Disney or Looney Tunes stuff and so on. I thought to myself, why the importers doesn't get Star Wars or Batman Pez...and while still holding that thought, I saw right in front of me Star Wars Clone Wars Pez and Batman Pez! What a coincidence!?
So I grab em.
There were 6 Star Wars Clone Wars Pez - Vader, Sidious, Artoo, Threepio, Chewie and Yoda.
This looks like re-issue to me. Couple of years ago, I bought a complete set of Star Wars Pez from US and they have more characters like Boba, Stormtrooper, Luke X-Wing etc. Of course the price I paid for buying these in US was much higher compared to the retail price of RM6.89 per piece here. (previously was only RM4.99)

What I like more was the Batman set. It comprises of Batman, Joker, Riddler and Two Face.
Other Pez characters I found but didn't buy are Pirates of the Carribbean and Monsters vs Aliens. In case you haven't heard of Pez, it's a candy dispenser. Been around for many years. Some are collectible item. Check em out..I suspect it will be wipe out off the shelf!

Banpresto Dragonball PVC figures found at Speedy Video!!

I was surprised to see Banpresto Dragonball PVC figures in Speedy Video.
They are selling at RM59.90 for 3 figures (Gokou, Karin and Yajirobe)!! These figures used to sell for about RM70++ each from collectors shop. Next question - are these bootleg? Not very sure because the figures packaging do come with the golden lion sticker (see pic) just like the original. I've seen bootleg version without the golden lion sticker and the packaging print is kinda crappy. This is not the case for the figures I bought here. My guess...could be factory overstock..but then I could be wrong. Check it out if you are a Dragonball fan!

KFC Chicky Fun Store Premium

Usually I don't buy KFC's premium that features Chicky the chicken. But for this case, I make an exception. KFC Chicky Fun Store is the latest premium offering from KFC and what caught my attention was the KFC store you can build when you buy a complete set. You get a group of KFC Chicky crew to man that store:
Service Crew with tray - wind-up feature
Bus Boy with mop - push him and the mop moves
Chef - push a button on his back for moving arm
Delivery - a chick on bike! Attach the bike to the base and press button shoots off
Each chick comes with parts of the store in which you need to assemble. Once completed, you get a double storey KFC store! Cool!
