The Damage Report

Posted by Octodad , Jul 07 2014 · 166 views

The total for my birthday Bricklink splurge came to $113.36, including shipping.

That's..... actually less than I spent to build the Micro Manager. Guess I didn't actually splurge any more than I usually do. :P

Got some good pieces, though, including a bunch of Technic beams and such in assorted colors, which will lower my dependence on black or grey versions of them, thus allowing me to be more colorful.

I also got a bunch of tan, so maybe I can attempt my Gundam in true Buster Gundam colors like Makaru wanted.


me birthday

Posted by Octodad , Jul 06 2014 · 164 views

tomorrow is my birthday. im turning 19 years old, which is to say, pretty darn old. im not ready to be even more adult than before.

proving im not ready to be an adult, i'm about to splurge on a bricklink order as a birthday present to me. im probably going to look for pieces in colors like medium blue and orange in order to give myself pieces i can MOC with that aren't neutral colors with red highlights.

T. rex skeleton

Posted by Octodad , Jun 26 2014 · 178 views

okay I promise you this isn't just more complaining about the T. rex skeleton from the lab set. Or, at least, not quite.

see, Izaak told me he would only consider my complaints valid if I could build a more accurate skeleton with a similar number of pieces. I was intending to do so anyway because I wanted to prove to myself that my claims weren't empty, but he fueled that fire. And so that's why I created this:

Now, it's not perfect, I'll admit that. I'm second-guessing the cheese slope on the neck, and the legs are somewhat rough and ill-proportioned. But this is, in my opinion, aesthetically better than the skeleton we received in the final set, while only using a few more pieces. The reason for more pieces is primarily because sadly, I could not preserve the tail build; it was simply too curved for this more horizontally-structured skeleton. However, slimming the skull helps make up for that. Also, while this image doesn't have the stand, that is only because I couldn't get the pieces to align right in LDD to make the stand work. Ideally, it would also have a chest stand for support.

idk, I can understand the draw of the original, I guess. It gives you that recolored piece, and it has its own sort of charm. It just annoys me with its wonky proportions that feel less like stylization and more like odd building choices.


Ace Attorney Music Opinions

Posted by Octodad , Jun 25 2014 · 115 views

Best Pursuit Theme: Ace Attorney 1: Cornered!

Best Objection Theme: Dual Destinies' remastered Objection! from Trials and Tribulations

Best Announce the Truth Theme: Either Ace Attorney 1 or Dual Destinies; it's a tough call for me.

Best Questioning Theme: Dual Destinies

Overall Ranking: AA1>>>>>>>>>AA3>AA5>AA4>>>AA2

There are exceptions to that ranking besides the above bests, though. Justice For All has a far better Announce The Truth than Trials and Tribulations, despite Trials and Tribulations being superior to it in nearly every other aspect.

The overall ranking coincidentally aligns with my opinions on the games themselves, though i might actually let Apollo Justice edge over Dual Destinies simply for being more..... filling than it, for lack of a better word.

Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.


There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.


The first entry offended my eyes.


Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
