The new YAMATO: 2199 features will be the Yamatalk topic in May!

After the big news broke out of Tokyo this past Sunday, concerning the two new YAMATO: 2199 feature films coming in October and December, the official "Yamato Crew" website announced early this morning that previews for both VOYAGE OF RECOLLECTION (October 11th) and ARK OF THE STARS (December 6th) will be screened during the next "Much Yamatalk Night" event at Tokyo's Shinjuku Piccadilly Theater on Tuesday, May 13th.

Blogging Break

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 22 April, 2014 - 00:21

So after 3 continuous days of visiting the hospital A&E, my fever has finally been diagnosed to be due to Chicken Pox! Reliving my childhood (Mum said I already had it when I was 3 years old), I've since decided to take a slight break from blogging and instead direct you folks to my Facebook at for updates or to post updates about your work.

And frankly my focus is out of whack, I could not even type THIS post out without a multitude of typos! Ironically, the past 3 days all I had dreamt about, was updating the blog, I kid you not!

Sorry if this is not a post about "toys", but just want to give you folks a headsup, is all :)

Time for a break, see you folks soon!
