    Amidst all the awesome news today some sad news was also posted.

    Taken From the site

    I really hope he reconsiders. For those that don't know Ngee Khiog is a blog that keeps upto date news about almost all major Japanese toylines.

    Yea it's a sad day IF he closes it, but i think it's really just about the trolls in his chat box. People talking smack can eventually annoy a guy. Hope he decides not to, we have a few months til he makes his decision.

    Bloody hell did I jinx him ? :/

    When I started following him last month and then he made this announcement. Madness...

    Anyway avoid the chat box, lots of shoe licking fanboys and trolls.

    EDIT :

    Oh wait, he took down the chat down this morning I think.

    Never heard of it. Just checked the site, and it is the first place to inform me of Figma's Rei Ayanami. Looks good, except I wish she didn't have stripper boobs.

    It's a shame and I hope he reconsiders. His site is the best place for Japanese toy news and I don't know of anyone as thorough as he is.

    He took it down because he said he was getting sick of maintaining it. I guess that goes for his whole site as well. :(

    I was'nt aware he was having trouble with the Chat Box (never even paid it any attention). I figured he may be getting close to being done with school and just wanted to move on. I really hope thats the case and not because of a few bad eggs ruining it for everyone else.

    @#% it will be sad day when he closes down that blog as many of you guys pointed out, that blog is amazing when it comes to the latest updates on Japanese toys. I love his Gundam kits updates as well as the SOC ones.

    So he's sick of Gundam fans having strong opinions? And he's closing to spite us? WTF?

    I'm pretty intrigued to read his rant.

    Thank goodness I wasn't reliant on his site for toy news, though :)

    And he listed out all the toy news sites, one of them is toysdaily, which I always go for sources.
