I'm a big kid now

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! May 04 2015 · 127 views

In the last week I have: printed business cards, gone to a big networking event to hand out those business cards, got a short but exciting summer job/glorified volunteer opportunity through the event, made a website and portfolio and social networking/media accounts (all with my full name in the urls! I'm so glad my name is ridiculous), made a demo reel, wrote up a resume, sent that resume with a cover letter to an internship I might get because it turns out I have connections there, aaaaaaand seemingly passed all my finals and officially finished my second year of college.

Now I can finally play with plastic construction toys :P

Vegans: Egg of Udon

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! May 02 2015 · 104 views

I can't believe this movie was two and a half hours long, 'cause it flew right by. Incredible. I love it. I'm just in awe. Gotta see it again just to really absorb everything cause there was so much going on.

I love all the tracking shots. They must have really enjoyed the big New York City tracking shot from the first movie that was so famous, 'cause there's like at least three more in this one and they're all even more ambitious. I desperately need to see those shots again. Just gorgeous.

I loved the Maximoff twins, they're really great characters. I loved that Wakanda featured, love me some Black Panther. Vision was perfect. The scene of Ultron's birth/awakening was incredibly chilling, creeped me out. Natasha and Barton were outstanding. Kinda wish they explored the visions/dreams everyone had a bit more, 'cause there was some really interesting stuff going on (especially Tony's) that I totally get and could extrapolate meaning from (definitely setups for Infinity War) but I knew that anyone who's not an enthusiast would be really kinda lost and felt let down by those crypitc hints being ignored as much as they were. Thor's especially, even I still don't know what was going on there, in terms of his reaction afterwards. Like I said, gotta watch it again to pick up on anything I missed and really enjoy everything properly.

What a thrill ride. Amazing. I don't know how any of us can go watch Ant-Man after this. Everything until Avengers 3 is gonna be a letdown.

Bonkles 2K15 - Episode 9

Posted by Pomegranate , Apr 25 2015 · 126 views

That was more than a little creepy. Summer villains confirmed for creepy ancient (possibly Toa) zombies?

What if the LoSS was guarding the city to make sure they didn't get out? :o (Nice job breaking it, heroes.)

Stickers!

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! Mar 18 2015 · 88 views

The hero pack stickers are beautiful and I don't know what to stick 'em on! My phone is my first instinct, but I don't think they'll stick well to my case and will prolly not fare well with all the handling and my pockets. Suggestions, please! What do y'all do with yours? :D

Lego Store Display

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! Mar 16 2015 · 146 views

Hey, so, I haven't been very active at all in the last couple weeks; in case like two or three of you missed me, I've just had a very busy semester is all.

Last week I passed by my local Lego Store and noticed that they had really big new displays for Bionicle 2015 up (before it was limited to the regular tiny shelf space like every other theme) so I stopped by today to snap pictures of 'em, and finally pick up a Protector and a Hero Pack.

The displays were really quite large, and right as I was passing by one some businessman in a big pack of businessmen loitering in front of the Bionicle display (or maybe it was ust a breeze) knocked over the big Mask of Creation and I was there to catch it. Now, I'm not saying I saved Bionicle, but... I saved Bionicle. You're welcome, everyone :P

There was also a parts bin behind the second display and I think a little thing laid out for the target-shooting activity, but I wasn't paying attention.

I also noticed this on the calendar they stuck in my bag. It's so dinky, I love it. I will definitely drag my little brother over there to get us a poster :P Does anyone know anything about this yet other than what's in the ad?

Totally wanna make Keetongu, but I'm pretty sure I have nowhere near enough CCBS parts for any sort of coherent creation, let alone enough keetorange. Here's hoping! But yeah, wouldn't it be neat to see a CCBS Keetongu? If anyone else wants to give it a stab please do because I just feel in my gut that there's a lot of potential there and I'm worried nobody else will think of it for whatever reason.

Skynet is real

Posted by Pomegranate , Jan 30 2015 · 130 views

In this timeline, it's just known by another name: Amiibo.

I picked up a Zelda amiibo yesterday (my bud and I are going on a massive Wave 3 hunt this Sunday, I'm gonna get Megaman) and in less than 4 hours it went from being a baby that couldn't land a hit to an unstoppable killing machine that got 8 of the 11 KOs in a match that involved myself and two Level 9 CPUs getting obliderated and tossed around like dolls for a few minutes while this artificial monster just slowly walked around like it wasn't even trying.

I am scared. It knows where I live. I'm pretty sure it's gonna learn how to escape the Wii U in less than a week.

How did we go from this

to this?

They called it a Skyblaster but we all know what it really is, it even shoots to-scale cannonballs. We're onto you, Greg.

Back in Town + Gali

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! Jan 12 2015 · 153 views

I'm back home in the city! Flew in last night after a wild night/morning, and with the ensuing head-melting headache and queasiness and the following jet lag from the flight keeping me awake, I basically ended up going straight to class without much rest.

It was nice to be back, though, and I hopped over to the LEGO Store down the block right after class and picked up Gali, and she's standing all cool and mighty on my shelf now.

I've never owned a CCBS set before, so it was a very new build to me and I had a lot of fun, and she's a great set and I'm very happy with her, except I'm having a really frustrating time handling her due to the combined issues of: not being able to maneuver her head without the mask slipping off or getting caught on the shoulders; the axe being heavy enough to tip her over or interfere with posing even with all those friction gears; her legs sliding apart really easily at the hip while nearly all the other ball joints on her are really stiff and require much more force to move, basically making it incredibly hard to make small tweaks to her pose without completely messing everything up. Nonetheless, I managed to snap a bunch of really neat photos and I'm sure I'll get used to the nuances quickly. I apologize for the lack of a proper backdrop and all the clutter, I wasn't really snapping photos with the intent of putting them here but they ended up coming out too nice not to show off :P

Speculating It

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! Jan 08 2015 · 128 views

I wanted to say "calling it" but we know so little right now that I can't claim to be confident in this, but anyhow, I'm theorizing that the Toa came from the Ancient City or whatever-- like, they were sent up into space or wherever by the ancient Okoto society that made that the prophecy drawings that the village elders show us in the animations, or possibly by an even older group of Okotans. I just realized that's basically saying "I bet it's exactly like in the original Bionicle" but I forgot that's what they did the first time and I was thinking of something a lot less convoluted for this time 'round :P
