Name change?

Posted by Ektris , in BZPower Jan 26 2015 · 114 views

Oh yeah, I can change it back now!

Should I? :/

I did it half as an experiment, and the results were kind of what I expected - don't feel like I'm so readily recognized now. Whether that's good or bad...

2014

Posted by Ektris , in Personal Jan 03 2015 · 119 views
New Year
Yeah I'm a few days late, but I'm also sitting here unable to sleep when I have to get up in 3.5 hours to go to the airport, so I wanted to find something to do. :P

I want to keep this short. It feels like for the first time, I can confidently say that a year was good to me. I graduated college, I got a job, I'm comfortable where I'm at despite living truly alone for the first time, I got engaged... There were still some bumps along the way (still have some anxiety and other episodes), but as a whole package it was pretty good.

I've walked into 2015 feeling confident, and it's a great feeling.

So happy belated new year, everybody. May it be good to us all.

  • S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Gaim Kiwami Arms
  • Play Arts Kai Kingdom Hearts II Roxas
  • Transformers Generations Skids
  • Nintendo Amiibo Little Mac
  • Nintendo Amiibo Fox
  • Transformers Age of Extinction Snarl
  • BIONICLE Transparent Clear Mask of Fire
  • BIONICLE Transparent Orange Mask of Fire
  • Nintendo Amiibo Luigi
  • Nintendo Amiibo Zelda
  • Nendoroid Red
Month started off on a mixed bag. I got Roxas and Gaim Kiwami Arms at the same time, and while Roxas I couldn't put down, Gaim... Well Gaim is a literal lemon amongst his fruit brethren (not to be confused with Duke Lemon Energy Arms coming next month though :P). He's such a disappointing figure and fraught with issues. Luckily mine escaped having a shattered chest, but the chest sticker is still wrinkled and a little ugly. But again, at least Roxas is awesome.

Skids was an impulse buy because I saw him. Then I got Snarl shortly after just to complete the movie Dinobots (which I'm not even sure anymore I should have ever started...). So Transformers this month were kinda meh .. It's the last wave of 2014 I really wanted but could never find, and with Combiner Wars showing up now (and I'll probably never see some of the ones I want most there too *sigh*), who knows if I will?

Fox was also on impluse, but he's definitely at the low end of "hard to find" Amiibos, so I still didn't want to miss him. He was found during my hunt for a Little Mac, which was actually successful. The Gamestop I got it from had just one. So personal experience is definitely backing up the prevailing trend and I feel pretty confident blaming Nintendo for the intentional wretched distribution and intentional scarcity of these. Just not pleased with them. Zelda and Luigi I really did want and only did see that one time too. Unfortunately I never saw their other wave mates, so probably won't now. And the incredibly common 8 from the first wave I still haven't gone after, but probably will soon. With my luck I'll start after they're now hard to find lol.

Red magically and randomly got listed on Amazon just a few days before I was flying home for the holidays. I couldn't pass on him though. Just look at how cute the starters are! :D So he got shipped to PA instead of TX and didn't get in the group picture heh. I can't help but love the little guy.

Last but absolutely not least, my first little foray into BIONICLE 2015. Sets didn't show up in any of my stores before I left and I wasn't about to hunt while on vacation, so I'll be late to the party in getting sets proper unfortunately. But this start is incredible and half of it completely unexpected. Thank you, DV. Thank you. :) They've really got me excited for the new line and getting back into constraction.

Not going to do a big end of the year update on the collection this year since, well, I'm just not with it heh. Still on holiday. But I want to do a beginning of the year one... after buying a new bookshelf or two... so be on the lookout for that.

Merry Christmas! - The Haul

Posted by Ektris , in Movies, Reading, Video Games, Collecting Dec 25 2014 · 124 views
Star Wars, Game of Thrones and 3 more...
Hope everybody who celebrates had a wonderful day. :)

So amidst the mountain of clothes and treats and literal large empty boxes with names written on the side for things to buy soon and ship directly to Texas instead of doing it ourselves (those were fun to open :P), I think I did get some haul-worthy stuff heh.

LEGO Movie and GTAV from the fiancée, books and Wolf Among Us from parents, and Xbox Live cards from future in-laws. ^_^

Overall I think I had a pretty enjoyable Christmas (and Eve). Spent a lot of time with family and ate way too much.
