A look at National Service through the years

National Service in Singapore, (commonly known as NS), is a statutory requirement for all male Singaporean citizens and second-generation permanent residents to undergo a period of compulsory service in the uniformed services. Depending on physical and medical fitness, they serve a two-year period as National Servicemen Full-time (NSFs), either in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), Singapore Police Force (SPF), or the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). A 2-month reduction in full-time National Service is given for pre-enlistees who are able to pass their National Physical Fitness Award (NAPFA).

The majority of NSFs serve in the SAF, as part of the Army. The reasons for this include the relative manpower needs of the Army compared to the Navy and Air Force, the SPF, and SCDF. Moreover, as compared to the Army, the Air Force (RSAF) and Navy (RSN) are smaller armed services composed primarily of regular servicemen.


National service has been a key component of Singapore’s nation-building journey since its inception. This national duty ensures that Singapore has a strong and ready military force to defend itself should the need arise.

This year marks the 50th year of national service in Singapore. To commemorate it, The Straits Times look briefly at the history of national service and how individual soldier equipment has evolved.

And in The Straits Times today: It's a small, small world - miniature modelling by Singaporeans

The art of miniature modelling may seem like a niche interest, but more and more hobbyists here are turning their passion into a growing business - either as a profitable sideline or a full-time profession. Unique collectables like mossariums and food sculptures may catch the eye of the younger set, while the more traditional scale models are still highly sought after by collectors. The Straits Times executive photojournalist Desmond Foo looks at the work of some hobbyists.

Full report can be found at The Straits Times HERE


Mr Calvin Tan, 41, is not only a World War II buff but also a world-renowned miniature figure sculptor and painter. The winner of many overseas awards is also an author and recently produced a video on the art of miniature figure painting. It can take him a few months to complete a hyper realistic figure, but one measuring a mere 5cm in height, sculpted with epoxy putty and then painted, can command a few thousand dollars. They come predominantly in three scales – 1/9, 1/16 and 1/35. Having completed over 200 since he first ventured into scale modelling at the age of 13, he is now focused solely on finishing his private collection. Mr Tan, who is married and has two children, is a department chair and senior lecturer at DigiPen Singapore.

Story so far...

It has been three weeks since they last saw the evil queen’s assassins. They had entered the misty mountains to lose them and within the mountains they began to train for the inevitable battle to come. The Huntsman insisted that the Princess used her agility to her advantage as he taught her how to use the blade. Tired as she was, she began donning the light magical battle armour crafted by the ancient dwarves. She was soon overcomed by fatigue and started to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the crackling fire.

In the distance, the footsteps approached, silently but deadly...

Check out Mezco Toys One: 12 Collective (1/12th scale) Batman: Ascending Knight action figure

Pre-order from BBTS (link HERE)

Mezco's One: 12 Collective are doing something a little different with their Batman - Ascending Knight 1:12 scale (6-inch) action figure. They're looking back to the past, to the original Batman of the comics from the 40s, when his ears were longer, his cowl was shaped differently, his gadgets were a little rougher and unrefined. He, in fact, was a knight ascendant and not the super-buff superhero you see today.

Every Knight has a beginning and the One:12 Collective’s Batman starts here. Batman—Ascending Knight is part of a trilogy: A beginning, a middle and an end. The Ascending Knight is Batman in his first year; designed to be contemporary but still have a first appearance feel.


This is the Batman of 10 years ago, as he just began his war on crime. At the start of his crime-fighting career Bruce Wayne is still working things out, finding what works and what doesn't. Some of his tech and gear is still a bit unfinished and raw. His Bat Suit is bulky, showing that he has not yet fine-tuned it. Of course the design pays homage to Batman as he first appeared in Detective Comics. The shape of his cowl, the shorter gloves and the smaller symbol on his chest are all inspired by his original debut in the comics.

Studio Sundowner Advent of Marvelous League #3 1/6th scale Makora female figure preview

Pre-order from BBTS (link HERE)

continued from previous toy blog post...

As one of the 12 holy generals under the banner of Genesis, given that General Mao is so powerful that she could not control herself, Genesis decided to split her in half to balance her power, thus creating Makora and Mahoraga. The weapon of Pangu Axe that was possessed by General Mao was also split into Yaksha Blade and God Killer Hammer.

The relationship between Makora and Mahoraga are like yin and yang, who are both in opposition and dependant on each other simultaneously. Makora has a passionate and enthusiastic personality, but also tends to be impulsive and fractious, making her resemble the sun. Her weapon is God Killer Hammer, when Makora and Mahoraga strike together, the Yaksha Blade and God Killer Hammer they each possess can be combined into the Pangu Axe, thus demonstrating its apocalyptic destructive power.

GOD COMPLEX gets the comic book treatment

Writers Paul Jenkins (Inhumans, Wolverine: Origin) and Bryan Lie team up with artist Hendry Prasetya (Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers) for an all-new mystery thriller in GOD COMPLEX, an ongoing series launching from Image / Top Cow this October.

GOD COMPLEX is set in the futuristic city of Delphi where a young digital-forensics investigator named Seneca finds himself embroiled in the bizarre murders of three church acolytes. Guided by his cryptic mentor, the Ruler named Hermes, Seneca uncovers a stunning conspiracy and a mystery that will turn his entire world upside down.


Join the GOD COMPLEX team on a unique vision of a digital future powered by mythological gods. GOD COMPLEX is the first original toy line-up from Jakarta-based GLITCH. It features sci-fi and high-fashion re-imaginings of mythological gods from various beliefs / regions like Greek, Egypt, China, and Japan.

GOD COMPLEX is created by Bryan Lie, who is GLITCH co-Founder and CEO. GLITCH is bringing the IP to worldwide attention, collaborating with Top Cow Productions to publish the comics to tell the rich stories behind characters and the GOD COMPLEX universe. The first comic is GOD COMPLEX: DOGMA and questions the nature of gods, religion, truth, and human faith, set in age of misinformation and post-truth.


I received this FoxBox Studio 1/6th scale "God Complex: Hermes" 12-inch figure back in October 2011 (see the action figure review posted on my toy blog HERE and HERE) and its blend of high fashion with mythical and sci-fi elements is still very refreshing up to this day :) I never tire of looking at the figure and marvel at the wonderful and clever design of Bryan Lie. Great to hear that GOD COMPLEX will be a comic book series soon.

Prime 1 Studio "Batman: Arkham Origins" 31" Tall Batman Extreme Environment XE Suit Pre-order

Pre-order

I am sorry Victor. I can’t give you peace but I can give you justice!"

Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present the Batman Extreme Environment Suit (XE Suit) from Batman: Arkham Origins (Cold, Cold Heart DLC). Batman started out using the Arkham Origins Batsuit but switched to the XE Suit after he realized that he needed a more armored Batsuit to take on the likes of Mister Freeze. It had heating on some of the areas of the suit, it was armed with Thermal Gloves. This special version of his Batsuit not only offered him greater protection but also allowed him to take Mr. Freeze head on as the suit was able to withstand the extreme temperature and break the ice he was able to create. A perfect duo with the Mr. Freeze from Batman: Arkham Origins.


This is the only suit Batman wears in the Arkham series that completely covers up Batman's face. It also is the only suit to change his voice, as a oxygen tank is needed for Batman to breathe (presumably to use in the event Batman was trapped underwater and/or in extreme temperatures). This makes Batman sound more robotic, and more like an underwater diver.

Batman XE Suit Statue features: Size approximately 31 inches tall.
