Related image

We are only a few weeks away until E3 2019 but we’re getting some nifty info from Square Enix. It may not be Final Fantasy VII Remake or Kingdom Hearts III Re:MIND, but it does mention similar with these two. It’s been announced by Square Enix that DLC costumes will be added to the Steam page and PSN for Cloud and Squall in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. These costumes originated from the Kingdom Hearts video games. Squall will be dressed in his Leon clothes with long hair and have the Sleeping Lion keyblade. Cloud will appear with his red cloak, gold claws and one winged appearance from KH1. Both costumes will be available to download on June 5th/6th for PSN and Steam.

Sephiroth KH costume also makes an appearance in Dissidia NT, but it’s not DLC. It can be purchased with in-game currency.

Do you plan to buy these DLC?

Jan/Feb + Early March 2019 Pop Funko haul!

Welcome collector’s! Once again I want to share with you my Pop Funko collection. As  a collector fanatic, I can’t resist on getting exclusive figures and Pop’s based on my favorite series and genre.

26. Eto (Tokyo Ghoul) from Fall Convention Exclusive 2018

I don’t usually say no exclusive figures and it’s good thing Hot Topic gave shoppers a discount coupon. This was something I been meaning to get since it was exclusive and I did like watching Tokyo Ghoul. I plan to read more of the manga and then watch the anime up to Tokyo Ghoul:re. I don’t know much about this character except that I seen her in Tokyo Ghoul Square Root A (Tokyo Ghoul √2 or season 2). She is a mysterious character who is part of a organization called Aogiri Tree where Kaneki joins them after getting kidnapped by Jason. I do like her design and have her identity concealed.

27. Riku (Kingdom Hearts III)

We waited this long for Kingdom Hearts III. We had spinoffs and Remix collections for the past years and now with KH3 here, fans were eager to get this game. In this new game, the characters have changed and got not only powers but also new fashion and keyblades. Riku’s appearance has been updated since Kingdom Hearts II and he wears clothing strikingly resembling Noctis from Final Fantasy XV. He also has a new keyblade that looks like a car key.  guess the next game will have Riku driving a car as a promotion to becoming a keyblade master.

28. (28a, 28b, 28c). Batman Pocket Pops set

Three is better than one. Unlike the previous figures I collected, these three figures are really small. I got this set from Amazon and with some credit I used, I only spent about $5. I will be honest, I got this because I heard you can also get these figures in the deluxe Blu-Ray edition of the Batman: Animated Series collection. The deluxe edition comes with all the episodes in Blu-Ray DVD including the two movies The Mask of Phantasm and SubZero and it has three small Pocket Pops of Batman, Joker and Harley Quinn. To avoid spending a fortune, I decided to buy the figures separately and I will settle with getting the collection in standard format.

29. Pikachu (Pokemon) Target exclusive

I don’t usually shop at Target because I have problems with their online shopping. Alternatively, I used eBay instead. I like Pikachu as a kid and I still do. A Pop version of Pikachu looks really cute. I am hoping to get the Bulbasaur figure next.

What do you guys think of these figures?

Kingdom Hearts III Opening Song revealed! Hikaru Utada and Skrillex collab song!

Great news Kingdom Hearts fans! Recently reported this week, we got some interesting news in regards to the anticipated video game Kingdom Hearts III. Square Enix announced that there is going to be a whole new opening song to the game and will be collaborated by two artists. The first artist is the well-known singer Hikaru Utada, who sang the Kingdom Hearts songs like Simple and Clean (even the remix versions) and Sanctuary, and the second artist is surprisingly the Dubstep songwriter Skrillex, well-known for making Dubstep music like Kyoto, Kill Everybody and Bangarang. A little known fact is that it’s mentioned by Skrillex that he is a long time fan of the Kingdom Hearts games.

Originally, Skrillex commented that he wanted to make a remix song of the already announced song “Don’t Think Twice” (the Japanese name for the song is called Chikai), but Utada and Skrillex came to an agreement that they will instead make an entirely new song for the game’s intro. The new song is called “Face your Fears”. With this news announced Kingdom Hearts III is going to be having two new songs and both is the intro and ending song.

Opening

Face your Fears – Hikaru Utada and Skrillex

Ending:

Don’t think Twice – Hikaru Utada

It’s been announced from Anime News Network that the song Face you Fears will available in the market to purchase. This new album will include Face your Fears and both versions of Don’t Think Twice (English and Japanese). The album will be released on January 18, 2019.

Vinimate unbox review – Mickey Mouse Birth by Sleep

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/iAOfOqOUgn4/maxresdefault.jpg

Hello everyone! I am back with another exciting post and this time it’s an unbox review. Today I will unboxed one of my purchases from the Labor Day Sale at GameStop. I am going to be unboxing the toy figure Mickey Mouse from Vinimate in his Birth by Sleep version. Birth by Sleep is the prequel story of Kingdom Hearts and this Mickey is when he was still trainning to be a master of the Keyblade.

This figure is only exclusive at GameStop (it’s like one of those exclusive figures you buy from retails when shopping for Pop Funko). These figures are not associated with the Pop figures based on the box and the design of the characters doesn’t have the “bobble-head” or “doll-like” appearance. They are small like Pop but they have “marshmallow-shaped” head and “Lego” hands. It feel rough so I wouldn’t recommend throwing the toys at anyone. The box mentions a site called Diamond Select Toys and it takes you to a site where you can find more Vinimates. The back of the box shows other figures like Sora, Donald, Goofy and King Mickey (in red outfit from KH2).

What do you think about these toys? Comment down below on your thoughts. Do you have any as well?

My Current Pop Funko collection thus far

You probably seen this in hobby stores or game stores like GameStop, Box Lunch or even Hot Topic. They are called Pop figures and thanks to the company Funko, many characters from video games, cartoons, anime, comics and other pop culture genre have been converted to these bobble head like figures. Some actually are bobble heads while others just have a stiff head. Think of these as the bobble heads from sports like the NFL and NBA, but instead of collecting your favorite athletes, you’re collecting your favorite characters from Marvel, Dragon Ball, Batman or even Rugrats. I will be sharing you my collection and I will give you a brief description about how I got them.

Friday Funny 117: Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone to my magical blog kingdom, it is I, Matthew, and I am here to enlighten your day with some good humor and silly laughs. I hope you children are having a good week of summer because I am going to give you another great episode of TGIF Friday Funny. Before we begin I got some news for you guys to look forward to while you have fun or chill.

This past Tuesday, I went to Disneyland with my whole family (this includes my grandparents, sister and husband, and us). It has been a long time since I been to Disneyland; the last time I went was in 2008 where I went to both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventures. This whole theme brought back my inner childhood and made me really appreciate the magic of this place. Speaking of Disney, if you are free this weekend from today through Sunday, Anaheim is hosting a convention called the D23 (D stands for Disney and 23 is 1923 where Walt Disney became the founder of his company). The D23 will offering information and fun to Disney fans who are interested in Disneyland, Disney cartoons and movies whether it is about Marvel, Star Wars or generally cartoon films. Mark your calendars for Saturday because according online sources, this Saturday will be unveiling some video game information on Kingdom Hearts III, Spider-Man PS4, and Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Also, be sure to support the OWLS this week. Go read Hazel’s post on Psycho Mob, Lita’s talk on Superheroes and Naja’s post on My Hero Academia. We are discussing on the the importance of our reflection on society and comparing ourselves to others and why does it matter today.

Last but least, I recently wrote a post about how did Final Fantasy affected my life the impact it left in commemorating for the 30 years of gaming. My Final Fantasy Legacy: Happy 30th Anniversary #FFLegacies discusses my humble beginnings and my future path of Final Fantasy. What is your legacy?

I also saw Spider-Man: Homecoming last Sunday. It was an amazing movie and I highly recommend it. The story was filled with many intense action scenes and silly humor and Tom Holland really nailed it as Spider-Man.

With all said, let’s begin the magic!

Here are some videos to watch. This will be in 3 parts.

Part 1 is the video games that are expected to show in D23.

Star Wars Battlefront 2

Part 2: Here is my top 10 Disney Songs! (One song out all the movies)

10. We Are One

9. Eye to Eye

8. Son of Man

7. I’ll Make a Man Out of You

6. When Can I See You Again?

5. Immortals

4. You Can Fly

Good bye dreamers!

My Final Fantasy Legacy: Happy 30th Anniversary #FFLegacies

I would like to start off by saying Happy 30th Anniversary to Square Enix popular video game franchise Final Fantasy. This year marks the 30th anniversary and I would like to express my love to the this game series. After watching this video FINAL FANTASY XV: New Legacies, I got inspired to write how much did Final Fantasy affected my life. According to the video, fans of the game tells their own stories on how did they came across Final Fantasy and what was the affect to their lives. It may not be greatly impacted like finding romance or dealing with social anxieties but this series has indeed affected for maybe for the better. Warning, this is a lengthy post!
