ARCH Unveils Limited Edition Justice League & Batman DC Collection

Original article at Pop Culture Fun – Malaysia

“Beauty is in the Details”

I got the call that a new Malaysian licensee will be launching their very own limited edition Justice League & Batman products. Then the next thing that entered my mind was – “I wonder who these folks are?”. Followed by – “Wow! I wonder what kinda products they gonna make?” OMG thoughts running wild haha

It’s ARCH Collection, but who are they?
Oh I have never heard of them till now. Well basically they’re a Malaysia company that designs & manufactures unique veneer (wood) based gifts, souvenirs & collectibles depicting culture & heritage! Wood / Timber! SO VERY Malaysian next to Pewter, Rubber and Palm Oil 😀 haha

re03

ARCH Collection is founded by Mr. Andrew Lee, who has a passion for architecture & Kuala Lumpur. They own the award winning tourist attraction, KL City Gallery which is located at Dataran Merdeka and housed in a 120 year old heritage building beside the KL Library. This place is so packed with historical documents, facts, photos of KL past, present & future per square foot  This is also the location for the very famous ‘I LOVE KL’ signage.

re1

So what’s so special about these wood gifts?
1) The art pieces are layered to create a 2-D  effect. The layering technique gives depth to the art piece while the use of different species of veneer and etching techniques create tones and hues. re01

2) These are pieces are made with multiple species of natural wood veneer, i.e. cherry, oak, maple, beech, makore, anegre, walnut. The wood frames are mainly solid durian wood harvested from durian trees that are past the fruit bearing age.  hence no 2 pieces are the same.

3) MADE IN MALAYSIA – all these art pieces are cut here and hand assembled by our local master craftsmen. This truly makes for a born in KL item!!

This will be the only Justice League & Batman collection in the world, to have the Kuala Lumpur city buildings incorporated in them! Batman gliding of the KL’s famous buildings with the Batsignal hovering over the city skyline… TAKE MY MONEY!

Another pleasant surprise was the announcement of the special guest of honour to officiate this event, Yang Berhormat Tony Pua, Member of Parliament Damansara. What does he have to do with this event, we might ask? Well he answered that in his short speech. Usually he skips ALL invitations to ‘product launches’ but on this very special occasion he decided to attend.

43201670_1993967507327809_8277443161068929024_o - Copy

WHY? Basically he made it clear that for this event, he would attend & support on a personal level because of 2 alphabets he saw on the invite… DC… as in DC Comics! Yes folks, you read it here in out blog – YB Tony Pua is a comic fan & comic reader!! He is currently following Batman series, but didn’t specify! Also on a personal note, he is friends with ARCH Collection founder Mr. Andrew Lee as well and is a firm supporter of what they are doing for tourism in Kuala Lumpur which ultimately means promoting Malaysia to the tourist 🙂

Pop Watch List 2017

As the new year starts to set in & we start to go about our business-as-usual… I have put together a Pop-Culture Watch – Movie List for 2017. This is something we always wanted to do as movie fans since back in the day, when the most of us chilled out at the MySciFiFan Outpost Cafe in the mid 2000’s located at the former Cineleisure Damansara… now know as e@Curve. Nowadays, it’s not only the movies that we are looking forward too. TV / Cable channels like Astro, Hypp TV, Iflix and Netflix also have many of our pop culture icons like Marvel & DC Comic characters! So here is my Pop Culture picks or to watch list 2017 in the CINEMA & on CABLE! I present to you The Pop Watch List 2017!!

JANUARY

12 Jan – Arrival*
19 Jan – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
26 Jan – xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage

*Whats ‘Arrival‘? Well in short, this is a Sci-Fi movie directed by Mr. Denis Villeneuve previously known for his gritty hardcore drama Sicario (2015), starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin. He did so well here & the above mentioned Arrival that the trustees of Sci-Fi icon movie Blade Runner (1982) have given him the Director duties for the up coming sequel Blade Runner 2049. Hollywood already has rumours that Mr. Denis is also being considered to take on yet another Sci-Fi movie icon – Dune (1984). Sicario (2015) was a really gripping, intense & brutal take on a common theme – “US border war on drugs”. Arrival was released in the USA on 11 November and think it was a definitive movie in which convinced the powers that be to hand him Blade Runner 2049. So The Captain is really looking forward to watching this!! 😀

FEBRUARY

9 Feb – Lego Batman Movie
9 Feb – John Wick 2: Chapter Two**
9 Feb, 9pm FOX HD [Astro Channel 724] – Legion (8 Episode TV Series)*
18 Feb – Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale
23 Feb – Guardians (Zashchitniki)#

*What is Legion? Legion is the FOX (2oth Century Fox) mutant entry into the TV series genre. This is a mile stone achievement as this is show will be the first collaboration between Marvel & FOX! So far it’s the closest Marvel will get to their mutants on an screen! So the story follows a guy named David Haller… aka Legion, who has many different powers, commanded by different personalities. In the comics he is also know as Professor Charles Xavier’s son and a member of the the X-Men. Legion is an Omega Level mutant, who can bend time & space at will if made whole with all his powers!

**What is John Wick 2? Have you not seen the first one? To quote http://www.imdb.com – John Wick is a story about an ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. Sounds familiar, common and “we’ve seen it before”??? But wait…. it’s much more about how he dispatches his enemies and the cinematography it was caught in that is the highlight. The director is a highly aclaimed stuntman, Chad Stahelski, which makes him have a different eye for fight scenes! And the irony of Keanu Reeves… who performed the all new ultra stylistic fighting sequences from the Matrix Trilogy movies is now in this role! Class act! I have not seen such cool fighting gun play since the ‘Cleric gun kata’ style from the movie Equilibrium (2002). Enjoy!!

#What is Guardians? No this is not related to Guardians of the Galaxy in any way. Guardians is a Russian movie called Zashchitniki. Basically it’s a story of the Russian government putting together a team combatants… enhancing them to super hero levels… to battle super villains! Sound familiar? Well I like to call it Russian Super Soldiers which also sounds like the Marvel’s Soviet Super Soldiers consisting of the Red Guardian, Darkstar, Vanguard, Ursa Major & Crimson Dynamo. There were the equivalent of the Russian Avengers haha Well, this one is totally original… though I’m sure there will be a lot of borrowed ideas but I’m still looking forward to it. That character that is a mix of Ursa Major & King (Tekken) sold me! So typical Russian liking towards bears huhu! Also I enjoyed Night Watch (2004) & Day Watch (2006) so why not this movie!

MARCH

2 Mar – Logan
9 Mar – Kong: Skull Island
17 Mar on Netflix – Marvel’s Iron Fist (13 Episode Series)
23 Mar – Power Rangers
30 Mar – Ghost in the Shell

APRIL

13 Apr – The Fate of the Furious (Fast 8)
27 Apr – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

MAY

10 May – Alien: Covenant
10 May – King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
25 May – Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
27 May – Resident Evil Vendetta

 

*What is King Arthur: Legend of the Sword? Well in short it’s Mr. Guy Ritchie doing a medival tale of England’s greatest knight movie! Mr. Ritchie is the Englishman Writer / Director famous for producing great crime genre stories from Locked, Stocked and 2 Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Sherlock Holmes 1 & 2 (soon to be 3) then did a 50’s spy style Man from U.N.C.L.E and now this! All in all I like his directorial style, his cast & his story telling so I’m in!!

JUNE

1 Jun – Wonder Woman
1 June – Baywatch*
8 Jun – The Mummy
15 Jun – Kingsman: The Golden Circle
22 Jun – Transformers: The Last Knight

*What is Baywatch? Well seriously if you don’t know what this is then you may not be at the legal age to watch those 18 above movies xD hahaha Baywatch is a TV cult classic… ICON! It opened the eyes of guys all around the world to what really was THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD. If it’s today… it would be Ryan Seacrest job! hehe pun (he often confesses this about his job). Anyways, this movie will attempt to reboot that TV series that ran from 1989 – 2001 in a movie format. Let’s see how it goes!

JULY

6 Jul – Spider-Man: Homecoming
13 Jul – War for the Planet of the Apes
20 Jul – Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets*

*What is Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets? Well in short, this is Mr. Luc Besson’s return to directing a Sci-Fi genre movie. This movie is based on the iconic French anthology comic Valérian and Laureline  that later became the landmark in European comics / pop culture. This graphic novel has influenced many elements & alien designs in the Star Wars saga & The Fifth Element. The Frenchman is famous for writing (occasionally directing) some great crime action movies with exciting car chases… with the occasional Sci-Fi movie. His previous works you may have heard of are Taxi 1 – 3, The Transporter 1 – 3, Taken 1 – 3, Lucy and his most famous Sci-Fi outing The Fifth Element (1997) staring Bruce Willis & Milla Jovovich. With all said above we have a good feeling going! With the primary roles being Mr. Green Goblin (Amazing Spiderman 2) & Ms. Enchantress (Suicide Squad), I think they have the range to deliver a good one here! Am looking forward!

AUGUST

24 Aug – Gintama (Japanese Live Action of the popular anime)

SEPTEMBER

TBA on Netflix – Marvel’s The Defenders
TBA Sept in selected IMAX – Marvel’s Inhumans (and on ABC America) [We hope to get it on FOX HD Astro Channel 724]

OCTOBER

5 Oct – Blade Runner 2049

NOVEMBER

2 Nov – Thor: Ragnarok
16 Nov – Justice League

DECEMBER

15 Dec – Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Thanks for reading! If you like it please share! More details or titles could be added to the list as time goes by. Having list like this in front of us, definitely gives us something to look forward to in the days to come. Have a good time in the CINEMA & on the COUCH watching your CABLE series!! This is The Captain signing off!!

Here is our Top 3 Finds of Day 0!

  1. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Mini Comic Collection – What’s this? Well if you collected these He-Man figures from the 80’s, you will know that each figure had a mini comic inside. The figure you bought would star in that comic, in that particular version whether good or evil. I thought it was a very cool way of extending the fandom in between watching the cartoon series. Anyways, my mom threw away my collected of mini comics & this is a very sweet redemption. The surprise part is that I never knew they made a compilation like this till now!! It’s in my hands haha ^^ RM 30 WIN 
  2. Star Trek COSTUMES – Outpost Commander flashed this new book to us which he picked up last year in America. This book is a whopping US$40… times 4.43 to our Ringgit = not going to buy… untill now!

  3. Game of Thrones: A Pop Up guide to the Westeros – Now is was the coolest thing I found at the whole sale – Game of Thrones 3D POP up book! I don’t watch the series but this pop-up book was uber cool with ideas I have not yet seen in pop-up books! Each page has a center piece then mini pull-outs + mini pop up in the pull out. All 7 kingdoms are represented & then the magic of which it ALL folds out together! RM50 for this almost magical collectible! 

As always it’s a MUST-GO!.. at least once event hehe! The check out counters are arranged differently & the queue looks to be a killer long zig zag…. however it does move fairly quick.

*IMPORTANT TO KNOW when paying – just know that there are 2 MAIN queues, the left line is CASH which is a lot shorter than the right line Credit Card. CASH queue is an ‘L’ shape & the Credit Card queue is the zig zag zig zag. 

Check out our all the photos here on FB: Big Bag Wolf Sale 2016

DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe – Pavilion KL Opening

KUALA LUMPUR – Thursday, 2 June 2016 – The DC Superheroes flagship store in Malaysia just got better! Part of the store was converted into the cafe & despite the first DC Superheroes Cafe already existing in Sunway Putra Mall, the Cafe extension of it also just got BETTER!

So to start off, the menu from Putra Mall got an upgrade with the new choices of Main Dishes. There added Pizza, Spaghetti, Burgers etc. Check out the shots of the menu! 

The Sunway Putra Mall menu had mostly coffee, tea & snacks on the menu. the Menu was shaped as the Daily Planet or the Gotham City Times. At Pavilion, it’s a comic with pages from some famous issues of DC comics i.e. Action Comics #1, Action Comics #252 etc. 

Food portions are pretty substantial for the average persons empty stomach. Us the 2 honchos at Cosplay-Fun turning 40 this year, ordered the Suicide Cordon Bleu & the Black is the Knight with a drink each & we were stuffed. We didn’t order any appetizers or soup… we went straight for the main dish since it was the new editions in comparison to the Sunway Putra Mall (SPM) outlet.

Suicide Cordon Bleu

The Secret of the Ooze! haha tribute to the recent TMNT & Batman comic!

Black is the Knight

The drink called What’s Left of Krypton akan Ice Mocha

This is called Yuzu Clark, Yuzu. I thought it was Aquaman’s… oh that’s just me haha

However, we did take a short break, had a chat with the owner & some other friends. After that we had a little space for the recommended dessert on the menu, the chefs specialty, his creme brulee aka The Justice 3. Wow that was yummy & apparently it is the chefs signature forte after having a study under a dessert chef.

The Justice 3

This is called From the Seas of Krypton

Food is premium, tasty & with a touch of DC Comics! Price is also premium for the menu also offers premium ingredients like Smoked Duck, Mussels, Scallops, Ciabatta Bread, Australia Beef, Charcoal Black Bread, Squid Ink Spaghetti etc. I think of it as geek fine dining! Why? Well because if you wanna talk about the fine dining atmosphere… then this place is a geeks den for a DC baptism!

This is called OA Flavoured

What I liked best about the entire dining experience was:

  • The food was good & tasty. My senses could savour the quality in the ingredients which should happen in a fine dining restaurant experience.
  • It was quite an immersive experience being able to chill out at a food place surrounded with licensed collectibles of your favourite heroes or even villains.
  • This geek den was so immersive that after a while sitting here it started to feel quite inspiring. Ideas started bubbling haha!
  • Rare but 100% possible you might bump into someone famous. Not just famous – famous… I mean Hollywood famous!!

    Tazito Garcia – multi talented pro athlete, model, stunt man and actor. You will see him soon in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

    Superman? Or more recently Mr. Ray Palmer aka The Atom! Now this sight would really freak me out because he is my favourite Superman alive (RIP Mr. Christohper Reeves), Mr. Brandon Routh!

All in all it really reminded me of the charm that was Myscififan Outpost Cafe (2007 – 2010) at Cineleisure Damansara (aka E@Curve). It was a geek hang out,  cosplay hub, hobby demos… a community gathering location for board gamers, video gamers, collectors, movie buffs & all things pop culture. I think it the idea & concept was way ahead of it’s time. If it was open now, I think it would be doing extremely well. What is the myscififan Outpost Cafe? – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66NBDGc2LjA Those of you who want to open or has already opened a Geek theme cafe… could learn a thing or two from the folks at the former Outpost Cafe 🙂

Anyways, that’s in the past, whats in the now is the spiffy new DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe Pavilion! Their kitchen folks, baristas & chef are all ready for the challenge to take your orders. Speaking to the owner, he has heard of all the troubles & complaints at the initial outlet in SPM, so this time round he has prepped them ready. It is actually very cool to see the owner there himself on the first few days of the cafe’s operation.

This is only the beginning! I’m looking forward to more exciting offers, dishes & event activities in the days to come… not to mention a Suicide Squad making it to the big screen.
