If its in Penang then its own by the same people who owned the Toy Museum in Summit Square, Subang, which closed shop sometime ago.
I hope they have better luck this time. How much is the entrance fee now?
Actually its rather misleading to call it a 'museum' since all the toys are quite new. To qualify as a 'museum' at least 30% of the exhibit should be 30 to 50 years old, or older. This should be named 'Toy Gallery' or 'Toy Collection Showcase' instead.
Also, a 'museum' should have detail description of all the exhibits, including name of manufacturer, date or release, background story/origin, and some trivia related to that particular piece. That way at least visitors will bring with them some knowledge of the toys when they leave.
Hahaha Pol in some ways you are correct! A lot of the toys itself indeed are quite new from the 90s to the 200s-ish. Stuff like McFarlane's horror babes (that somehow always are decked in very little cloth. Is it so hard to find cloth in Animeland/some movies/fantasy worlds? ), tons of new Star Wars figures from Eps I-III, military F-18s, Abrams, Hummers, Dragon 16-inch models,
Too bad I couldn't find my other hero, Master Chief from Halo.
But the stars of the place are obviously the intimidating life-size maquettes, notably Ultraman (dunno which series), Lara Croft, and of course, Naked Snake from MGS3 himself !!!
Go Jack, hahahaha...
You're a ghost, Snake, in every sense of the word...
hmmm... i remember paying a visit to the Subang one. They have certainly updated the collection but i believe their ori had more old stuff! mayb ppl feedback and say that they wanted to see more recent ones?
but then, that was like eon's ago! think i was still in college then!
