Riverspoons with Back To The Future Delorean

There's only one thing I've been looking forward to when me and my wife planned to go to Universal Studios at Osaka, Japan. That is to come and see the Back to The Future Delorean in person.

Upon entering, we went straight to the Back to the Future lot or the "Institute of Future Technology", The Back to the Future theme is playing on the area, It was a great touch to set the mood of the movie. Once we crossed the BTTF Shop, I finally saw the Time Machine in person! It is really a monumental moment for me haha!

I can't wait for the Hot Toys version of this Delorean as well as Marty & Doc 1/6 scale figures.

Hope you guys enjoy the photos! It will be a source material for me since I bought the Aoshima 1/24 Scale Delorean model. It'll be my first time to build one.

Great Scott!!

They should've lowered the tires in fly mode, to complete the look.

Mr. Fusion!

A peek inside, I wish I could sit there

It should have the orange plate number, but the Outatime" is more iconic

Touched it! haha

The only Back to The Future ride in the world as of today.

You wish you have a time machine to skip the long line!

People patiently waiting to take their turn

The Back to The Future Shop

What a nice clock!

Damn to pricey!

Hot Toys Iron Man 3 Poster Art by Riverspoons

Iron Man fever is coming! I made this art inspired by the Iron Man 3 poster, featuring Hot Toys Iron Man 3 Die Cast prototype photos.

Riverspoons visits Toei Kyoto Studio Park

Toei Kyoto Studio Park is a place for Samurai & Ninja fanatics! The look & feel of the place is like you time travelled to the Samurai era or entered a Samurai movie. Good thing my wife discovered this place thru Japan tourist mag application on Ipad, when my wife showed me what this place is about, I was really pumped up to go and visit this place! As a big Samurai fan, it was really a dream place!

The whole park is recreated based on Edo period or Tokugawa period (1603 - 1868),  This is where they also film some of the Samurai films. as for the Studio, this is also the place where the Super Sentai TV series are filmed.

A big addition to this place is there's also a Super Sentai Museum & Toei Animation Museum inside the Studio park. which will be featured on my next blog!

Entrance fee here is 2,200 yen roughly 1,100 pesos or $23 US dollars.

 If you came here on a full Kimono set you'll have 50% discount on your entrance ticket.

We're entering from the back entrance of the studio, good thing about it there's no line! 

Gallery of Samurai movie posters

Ninja Mystery House

Backlot of the Toei Studio

One of the scariest Haunted House in Japan. - Yes, my wife & I entered this one! It is definitely scary!

Shinsengumi Headquarters

Nakamuraza Theater

There are also shows like this one, a Samurai swordplay acted by Toei actors. 

Winning Pose!

Cool chopsticks cover !

Even the restaurants are old fashioned
Meiji Period Office

Stealth mode in day time haha! I think a white ninja will work.

This actor appeared on Tom Cruise film "The Last Samurai" we didn't get his name though since it is written in Kanji.

He looks serious, but this is like a stand up comedian/magician show... the Samurai way.

This is the main entrance of the Park, we got in thru the back entrance.

It will cost you 7,000-10,000 yen to wear this armor!

My wife & I really had a great time! We hope to return here someday - on a kimono costume!
