A high-tech, full scale die cast replica of the Zyusouken/Dragon Dagger! Details on it are scarce, but given what we have seen from the Gavan Laser blade, this version no doubt has high quality show-accurate music and sounds from the Zyuranger TV series!

The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the Indian Air Force (IAF) are conducting a Joint Military Training (JMT) at Kalaikunda Air Force Station (AFS KKD), India from 14 October to 20 November 2014. Minister of State for Defence Dr Mohamad Maliki Bin Osman visited JMT today as part of his trip to attend the India Global Forum held on 9 and 10 November 2014 in New Delhi, India. At the air base, Dr Maliki was hosted to lunch by Air Commodore Rakesh Sinha, Air Officer Commanding, 5 Wing, AFS KKD.

Something many people don’t know is that the RSAF deploys F-16s to the IAF's  Kalaikunda Air Force Station on a permeant basis as part of a government to government agreement between the two respective nations. Airspace being a premium in the Republic of Singapore lead to the need for the RSAF to look to use the airspace of other friendly nations so as to conduct their aircrew training throughout the year. Thus there are now RSAF F-16s in india around the year. 


So… in downtown Baltimore there has been the billboard you see on the left featuring the hometown mascot Mr. Boh, of National Bohemian Beer fame and the girl from the Utz Potato Chip bags… I never understood why this sign was so popular considering that Utz Potato Chips are made in Hanover Pennsylvania and are a sponsor for the New York Yankees, which I’m amazed hasn’t been considered blasphemous in this neck of Orioles country.  And I always wondered what the hell Mr. Boh saw in the Utz Girl, she’s looks like she could be his damn sister for crying out loud!  But I digress…

It was news around town that this long-standing billboard was going to be removed in the near future and I got thinking of what should replace the sign…  so I immediately thought that this might the perfect opportunity for National Premium Beer, a one-time popular local beer that has recently re-launched by a committed guy right here in Maryland, to smack National Bohemian and Mr. Boh, now brewed in California of all places, right in his big fat moustachioed face! 

The smooth monocled dude you see in bed with the Utz Girl is Mr. Pils the original mascot of National Premium back in the day.  His cheeky reappearance and the “bitch slap” it would provide to National Bohemian would be completely badass!
