Almost through the dark tunnel and back to life!

Dear followers and friends,

Time is ticking and we´re almost back in business with great new stuff. A new and bigger photo studio will help to update those big sets such as Chap Mei´s Police Power Station Playset, Dino Valley and Soldier Force Haulers and so many others in such a need of a greater look.

To fill the gap in time from June 2nd to the day we "come back" in full throttle, we´ll update some of the previously reviewed smaller sets. But rest assured, it´s a matter of (few) days until new reviews are presented to you! 

We thank you for you patience and continuous visits, making us proud to be part of your collector´s life.

Star Wars exhibit - Star Wars Clube Portugal

Last weekend. the Star Wars Clube Portugal gathered (some of) their members, partners and friends in a fun meeting/ exhibit. Since we´re also partners of this club, we had the honor to participate with a ship and even show for the first time, a diorama prototype in development especially for these occasions.

The Imperial Shuttle was one of our top gems and so, it made a fine impression to the audience. Check its review.

Our diorama as a base for the powerful Imperial AT-AT. A better look at this DIORAMA. As for the Star Wars vehicle, read 1997 AT-AT Walker 

As expected, many figures and props, laughter and comradery in a good event, getting better every time.

Personal collections, signed merchandise, a little bit of everything could be found there. Congratulations to all involved and let us all wait for the next one!

Image database limit reached

Dear followers,

As some of you may have noticed, we haven´t been posting for a few days now. This regretable situation has to do with the fact we have reached an image database limitation. We are currently working on some updates of previous posts so that we can continue with our views and reviews.

We are certain this will be sorted out in the next few days.

Your friends,

Mike, Ian, Joe @ JoMiToys

Legends Of Knights Chevalier Battle

Another of the few sets from the "Legends Of Knights" theme, this one had another great castel assembly which makes it another sought-after piece.

Making use of their uprising, Chap Mei did come up with some interesting items in this (now extinct) line.

On a positive side, the castle walls and rocks, animals and dragons and even some figure details. Downsides... the old "big weapons" design issue.

Included items.

Included accessories.

Animal: "Cobra" serpent. "Orcus the wizard count" pet.

Figures: "Prince Rupert" and "Knight Magnus". For more details on the last, refer to "Legends Of Knights Deluxe Castle Attack".
