For those who are unfamiliar with the Title, it is a malay/singlish slang word for "random picking of things". (Correct me if I am wrong, Not a affluent connoisseur of my country's slang)
For the toy that i am featuring, it is the type of toy you get by putting coins into the machine and turning the knob so that a ball come up with some random "crap" from the range of "crap" that they over from the machine.
This machine can churn out random stuff. From key chains, to poor quality Walt Disney products to Fake Pokemon Figures and Funny simplistic toys.
I got this one from a machine that was somewhere along the streets. The sign display read "Warplanes of the World". Since I was bored and pretty much had change to throw away, I decided why not lets give it a shot and check out the stuff i got.
And lookey here, With a lil luck, I got a Av8B Harrier Jet.
HAHa the funny thing about this toy though is that if you take a closer look, U can see the word "China" right next to the US Airforce insignia.
That is pretty much ironic in every sense. An American/British plane, with the word "China" on it. I wonder where did these guys get their "Warplanes of the World" Facts from. :S Because I am pretty sure China doesn't have AV-8B jets.
Nonetheless, for a scrappy toy, its attention to sculpt and other details were not bad.
But then again, this are widely considered low grade toys that probably would get dispose off in no more than a week from the point of time that is is acquired from a kid
Get me wondering though, How is there ever a market to earn profit from this.
However, I would like to point out something, this is not the same as the Japanese machines of similar concept. Because those are high quality products and by god, they are not cheap. In fact many of the stuff they have inside their own set of ball packages are original.
