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 This place is so packed with historical documents, facts, photos of KL past, present & future per square foot  This is also the location for the very famous ‘I LOVE KL’ signage.

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!

re02_2

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.

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 🙂

Keep up the good work folks!

Event List 2016


Hi Everyone! Welcome to 2016!!

Thank you for the 94,000+ visit to our little blog. The flag counter on the right is now 30 months old has continued to be a good monitor to see where you folks are from. Even more to gauge the number of new first time visitors here. Cosplay-Fun was created to support & promote cosplay in Malaysia first… and I’m very glad hasn’t stopped there in just Malaysia. The is now our 6th year & with the exponential growth in number of cosplayers… I think about 60% of cosplayers will even remember who The Captain cosplayed let alone who The Captain is. Ironically, 2016 will officially mark my 10th year in the cosplay community! allen cosplay

Anyways, starting & running this effort was never about becoming famous… or popular or even rich! It was about encouraging a passionate, positive & often misunderstood culture of cosplay. And when I mean cosplay I want to include everyone… from the guy with a life-presever + cap… posing like he is ‘out-of-time’ (Marty McFly), to the girl in an orange skirt + turtle neck sweater & black frame glasses (Velma from Scooby Doo) to the Mikasa (AoT), Miku, Luffy, Naruto, Mecha – the anime folks!

With this heart in mind Cosplay-Fun has delved into many facets of the community & scene. By far, our most exciting but challenging tasks was strifing to do what has not been done before example being the First Ever Cosplay Contingent to march in the Hari Wilayah Parade! Gathering the largest number of Batman & Gotham City villains at an official DC event etc. But on the other hand we also paid the price for attempting such things. The greatest contention comes from the very community you are helping! How typical?

Anyways, enough of the struggles, battles & travel tales of Obi Wan Kenobi – it’s time for Old Hermit Ben haha here is the new spiffy event list for 2015. It looks kind of short now but believe me there will be much added to the list. #MalaysiaACGEventsList2016 #EventsList2016 #CosplayEvents2016 #MalaysiaCosplay2016 #PopCultureEvents

Please come back to this page to check as the list will be updated from time to time & the link might change 🙂 Please support & ‘LIKE’ our FB page to get more frequent updates.

As usual the events listed in GREY are NOT YET CONFIRMED or TO BE ANNOUNCED but we are hoping they will have them again this year 🙂 Do feel free to contact us [cosplayfun.my@gmail.com] if you would like your event to be listed or unlisted. We want to give the community something to look forward too 🙂

THANKS FOR A GREAT 2015 & HERE’S TO A BETTER 2016!!

Batman v Superman Run – Malaysia (Race Kit Collection)

Here are the scenes from this past weekend which was the official collection date of the Batman v Superman Run Malaysia it was pretty exciting as I got to see the hype & anticipation for this event when the participants came pouring in over 2 days to pick up their goodies! This is the first official DC Comics run event in the Klang Valley. Last year the folks in Penang got the first with the Justice League Run Penang.

We are expecting about 3,000 – 4,000 runners this Sunday and I think that is certainly an impressive number out. Much love for #TeamBatman and#TeamSuperman…. though secretly the Captain is for #TeamWonderWoman!

All are invited to the festival area which is located at Padang Merbok from 6am – 10am. I expect the merchandise to be on sale there too.

This event is organised by Pink Apple Events.

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.

A BIG Thanks to JT Network, DC Comics Super Heroes MYS  and of course the DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe Pavilion for having us 🙂

DC Comics Multiverse 6″ Exclusive – Batman Unmasked

The next 6″ figure in the @BatmanVSuperman DC series (formerly Movie Masters) is out with the new dreaded revised price too -__- only 1 new figure though. Personally I feel that if you’re bent on assembling / completing the BvS Batman grapnel blaster, you just have to buy this figure! From the cover it says that this figure is an exclusive add-on.

Else where on the internet it is mentioned that you can either buy this or a variant that happens to be Superman with alternate ‘heat vision eyes’. Both these figures come with the same “grappling hook” part of the BvS Batman grapnel blaster gun. This is one of the 8 parts needed to complete the grapnel blaster. This figure is unofficially figure number 5… which means 3 more to go.

Anyone of you collecting this series? Would you like to show us your collection?
