MINISO - Robot Warriors

Robot Warrior

MINISO - Robot Warriors

     On my travels to Asia I was hoping to find some unique action figures more so robots or figures I could not find back home. Here is one I found at Miniso in Beijing Wangfujing Street. There where so many robot figures to chose from. I could of chosen to buy a combiner figure but then I would have to buy at least 5 figures to build one. I didn't know if I would like them and how good the quality would be like even if they cost $5 each.  Plus I didn't have that much room in my luggage for any other souvenirs.

Miniso Beijing

 There are so many Miniso in Wangfujing Street in Beijing not very hard to miss. I did but a whole lot of other things not just action figures.

Asia Haul

Here are some of the figures I got in Asia. I'll post more about them when I have a chance. One figure I do regret not getting in Hong Kong Is Titian's Return Brawn but that's another story for another blog post.

Anyways back to the Miniso Robot Warrior...

    The Robot Warrior in his seal package. I wanted to do a video on doing the unboxing him but I was too excited to see what he was like. Hopefully i'll be able to do a youtube video on him soon. It may be a while as usual.


Unboxing ever so carefully


One of the features that attracted me to this figure was his drills on his shoulder.

Energy Axe

Love the two drills on this figure

Transformation Mode

     So far so good. Not too bad, the articulation on the figure is not great. For example his head can't move side to side and his arms are really no existent on bending. His legs don really go forward or backwards. He can do a slight splits and knee articulation is pretty good. But hey... Again you can't really complain for a figure that coast $5.

Back Thrusters 

Battle Ready

I was not able to open the Robot Warrior near my studio so these are just some quick shots of him while I was unboxing him.

It was my brother birthday and what he wanted for his bday was a UFC belt. When we were kids we loved wrestling and  made different champion chip belts and tag team belts out of card board and old jean pants.

Happy BDAY

Opening of the UFC Belt

So Exciting 

Even comes with its Personal Bag

Nice but it would be cool if the zipper went all the way side to side did a good job on the shipping.  We ordered the belt in the beginning of January 2017 and hoping to receive the belt on time for his birthday in February. Plus we got the re-leather belt option as we didn't want it to crack on the bends of the belt and we wanted to keep it for a long time.

The Belt looks awesome from the diamonds to the 3D UFC Labels. This belt sturdy and is has some heft to it.

Hydrogen Peroxide Experiment: COBRA Storm Shadow

Hydrogen Peroxide Experiment: COBRA Storm Shadow 


Disclaimer: The below is a record of my experience. If you try it, it is entirely at your risk. You must not let your bare skin come into contact with Hydrogen Peroxide.




 As you can see my Storm Shadow figure has some yellowing from the chest area. It really annoyed me for the longest time so I decided to try hydrogen peroxide to see if I could turn it white again.

I headed to my closest dollar store to get some hydrogen peroxide. I was really excited to see the end results but I knew it may take awhile.


I tried a bowl first was a little too big.

I started this project late in November so there was not too much sunlight. So i think the UV index was not too high also. Thought why not give it a shot.


This Jar seems to work better

The sun was not out too much in the Winter so I had to watch the sun for awhile and where is was shinning around my house.

Yup all different places around my house. Always looking around for the best spots for more sun.


Work Window

I needed more sun and time and I work full time I could not monitor Storm Shadow all the time so I brought him to work. ( Yup I'm a dork! )

Still not enough Sun!


Around this time Storm Shadow was showing some improvement but very slow. I just hoped the hydrogen peroxide would ruin my figure.


Christmas Time 

At this point I was getting a little doubtful. Storm Shadow was showing only little improvement. At times I was even wondering if the hydrogen peroxide was working at all.

Storm Shadow Hydrogen Peroxide Bath

More time in the hydrogen peroxide. It looked like the Cobra emblem was disappearing. So I guess it must be working. Yup I guess winter sucks for trying this out.

Yup Just a little lighter

Yup Summer

Storm Shadow Hydrogen Peroxide

At this time I was wondering how long it would take.

February 2017

I decided to stop the experiment. The Cobra Emblem looked like it was starting to fade also his

Black Light with Hydrogen Peroxide

I got desperate I was not really home too much to carry out the experiment. So I tried a UV light.

Bubble Means its Working Right?

MARCH 2017

I decided to stop the experiment. The Cobra Emblem looked like it was starting to fade also his Arashikage tattoo was starting to look faded or etching out.

I think the colour whitened just a tad but better than it was before. What do you think?



Any advise or tips would be helpful.

Here is one of the blog links I followed.
