SGHAZE 2015: Welcome to Singapore Airpocalypse!



Welcome to Singapore Airpocalypse! Just when we thought the haze in Singapore was gone during the F1 weekend, it is back again, this time, it looks even worse. Here's a video of the SG Haze shot during 2 days (including today) when Singapore was hit by its worst haze so far in 2015 due to forest and land fires in parts of Indonesia. The haze is set to remain until November because of the dry spell caused by the El Nino effect. Looks like we have to keep our masks on till November. Sucks!

Zaczac isn't too happy having to put his mask on due to SGHAZE.

STGCC 2015: Old Boy Steampunk Iron Man



Reeve from Imperial Studio (Singapore) on how he made this super cool, post apocalyptic Iron Man with Tony Stark, now an old man with a blinded eye. Old Boy was built and modified using the Hot Toys Silver Centurion figure as the base.

The whole process took about 3 months to complete. The initial concept design phase took about 1 month to come up with the final look. After the concept design was done, it was down to getting the parts and gears to the right scale before putting everything together. And another important part was taking the young Tony Stark headsculpt out from the helmet and resculpting it to reflect an elderly man look.
