Bought back this 9" Pain edition (limited to 200 sets) each figure come with a numbered cert. Accessories included a surf board for Fluid, a skateboard for Flake. Basically you can form 3 different figures for this set.
I do enjoy Mark clean sculpt and well use of shape and form. The 25" Flake pain figure was a big surprise for me. I'll stay tune for any up coming Mark's new work.
I'm not a sneakerz freak, but I do have several pairs of sneakerz in my collection. I play a lot of basketball back in the day. A pair of Jordan is a dream....move like Jordan is also a dream.
Last Saturday Feb 23 released Jordan XXIII. Not sure if this Jordan 23 is going to be the last. Anyhow....got it and love it..!! Such a big different compare to the Jordan I.
"P" got me the Jordan XXIII limited basketball, limited to 2323 pcs world wide. The ball is all hand stitch it and laser-etched many of the miles stone of Jordan.

Just saw Kaijin show this sample of the new Apple Candy variant of the FULCRAIM. There is a face hidden under the helmet. I got the 1st Black proto variant (limited 44pcs) back in December. I'm curious to know if my black variant have the same face under the helmet. Here I go......helmet remove..and there is a sculpt. Such a surprise by Kaijin....totally a fresh feeling for this figure.
The 2nd variant of this FULCRAIM is the Champagne Gold variant with a base. The Apple Candy variant with base is the up coming variant that show the face behind the helmet.

Took few days vocation to Barrie with "P" to snowboard and getaway. What's good about going there during week day is no one there at all and can be able to snowboard with no one around you. And the weather is very cooperate to give me at least 1 ft. of extra snow during my stay in Barrie.
Will probably go there again this weekend.....is a long weekend for us in Canada. "Family Day" on Monday....sound good to me.

Bringing together some of the biggest (well, bigger) names in Hong Kong hip-hop, 24Herbs is keeping it raw with their first studio album. Formed by LMF's Phat and Kit, Ghost Style, DJ Dor Yuk (producer Eddie Chung), MC Sir Eats-a-Lot (Brian Siswojo, founder of street label Know1edge), and MC Drunk (actor Conroy Chan), 24Herbs mixes languages, beats, and rhymes for some hard hip-hop sounds. The group's rap numbers and topics of choice are a welcome blast back to LMF-era Canto-rap - angry and profane, but also fun and catchy.
Owing to the hip-hop crew's multilingual composition and diverse callings, 24Herbs serves up raps in both English and Chinese, and shows metal, rock, and electronica influences in their arrangements. Featuring hard-hitting numbers like group anthem 24Herbs and the celebrity culture-bashing Superstar, 24Herbs' self-titled album is a rare offering from Hong Kong's underground hip-hop scene. The second disc comes with six remix tracks.
Eric Haze design the 24Herbs logo, and Prodip design the CD cover. Get your copy here.
**Gardener Brian design is base on Brain (MC Sir Eats-a-Lot).**

Ningyoushi announced that they are the official Crazysmiles retailer for the USA market. All the CSBOOTH14 released is on sale in their site, including the secret version DJ Panda and the Off World Creatures. Then what about MINDstyle..?? Just release black on black variant only..???~
Finally Michael is going to hit the US market, but the CSBOOTH14 release is a bit late when everyone already got it from friends or eBay. Anyhow is good to see we can have another choice than eBay and can be able to buy the secret version directly.
