Seeking Wii U Friends!

Posted by Lyichir , Jul 27 2015 · 239 views
Wii U, Video Games, Nintendo
So with Splatoon adding new battle modes geared toward people who want to play online with friends, I figured it was about time to put out another all-call for any of my BZP friends who want to add me to their Wii U friends list. My Nintendo Network ID is "Lyichir" (without the quote marks).

Games I have that feature online play:
  • Splatoon (my current passion—it's the first competitive online shooter that I've really enjoyed)
  • Mario Kart 8 (another game I love—haven't played in a while but I'd still love to play online with folks if they were up to it)
  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (I'm less fussed about this one—I play casually but am not the type to practice until I'm better, and mostly just fight with either Yoshi or random fighters. But I'd be open to play with friends every once in a while)
So, any takers? I'd love to have some other people I know from online to play with!


REVIEW: Azari and the Magical Bakery

My latest Elves review is up! This time it's for Azari and the Magical Bakery. This was a difficult review to pull off given the huge number of new parts I had to cover, but it should give a good idea of what the set has to offer.

I never thought this would happen

Right now I actually feel ashamed to be an AFOL. I'm at a Lego convention I looked forward to for months, anxious and scared and wishing I could be anywhere else.


On the Bionicle Story Ending with Makuta's Victory

How can ANYONE say in good conscience that the Bionicle story should have ended with the villain victorious and all hope extinguished? It would be the ultimate disrespect to the rest of the story, undermining every single lesson the Bionicle story ever tried to teach.

Yes, not all stories have happy endings. But endings, happy or unhappy, should MEAN something. Ending Bionicle with despair would have zero meaning, being "edgy" and "dark" but also "terrible" and "idiotic".

Sometimes I think people proclaiming their love of G1 have mixed up the meanings of "love" and "hate".

Gali was exhausted. Her legs ached from swimming all day—which she had been doing for weeks now, following a figure she hardly knew. Her guide called herself the “Protector of Water,” and Gali didn’t even know how much she could be trusted—but this mysterious character seemed to know who she was and why she was here, which was more than Gali herself had any recollection of...

I wrote a fanfic? A BIONICLE fanfic!? I guess miracles do exist.

Anyway, I didn't spend all that much time on this, so I'm not making any promises about quality. But feel free to head to the topic to check it out!

THEORY: Plausible connection between Bionicle G1 and G2!

A lot of people have been posting their theories on how Bionicle G1 and G2 are connected in S&T, so I thought I'd share my own! Check out the topic!


From: What do you want to see in the Lego Batman Movie?

Blogged because while I wrote it as part of another comment I think it's a sentiment that deserves to stand on its own:

On another note—I love the theme of the movie we've heard about from Phil Lord and Chris Miller: Can Batman be happy? It's a question worth asking, in an era where DC and Warner Bros. think that audiences still only want gritty, angst-ridden, "realistic" superheroes in movies, or with high-profile marriages between DC comics characters being aborted because "Superheroes shouldn't have happy personal lives." If Lego is what it takes to get DC Comics out of its recent funk, I think it'll be a good thing for the comics market and the superhero genre in general.

So recently, inspired by an offhand comment my twin brother made about wanting to see/build an updated version of the classic Nui-Rama set, I decided to try my hand at a MOC.

After much planning, preparation on LDD, and scavenging parts from recent Technic sets, the result is what you see here. A "Skull Sandfly" (still not 100% sold on the name, but I like the alliteration). I tried to recreate the look of the classic set while giving it a much-needed update, with CCBS parts replacing the classic low-posability Bionicle limbs and the dated Throwbot/Slizer gearbox cleared out to make way for a custom gearbox which utilizes the knob gears from this year's Technic-heavy Toa and Lord of Skull Spiders. The function looks better (thanks in part to the wings from Gorast and Thornraxx) and arguably works better, with less wobble and a better grip for the handle. The jaw and claws are now posable, thanks to parts from last year's Hero Factory sets, and the eyes are now solidly attached instead of weirdly popping off like other masks. And at 103 pieces, it gives the original a run for its money in terms of bulk and building experience as well.

More photos, video, and even a digital download are available from the MOC topic!

#Binacle2015: Results and Last Chance!

Well, after 30 minutes of Wonder Trade I managed to trade away 24 of my nicknamed Binacle. But as I did so I began to notice that none of the people I traded seemed to be BZPers. So instead of trading away the whole box, I decided to get rid of the last ones a bit differently.

I have six #Binacle2015 left, with one destiny—to be traded DIRECTLY to BZP members who are interested in them! For those who don't have me on their Friend List, my Friend Code is 0817-4310-5392. If you're interested in one of my Binacle (or just want to add me to your Friend List for the heck of it), either post your Friend Code here or PM it to me and we can set up a time to trade!


Project #Binacle2015

Bionicle, Pokémon, BZPower, 2015

So over the past weekend I set to work on a little project to celebrate the return of Bionicle.

Announcing... Project #Binacle2015!

I've bred 30 Binacle on my Omega Ruby version and nicknamed every one of them "#Binacle2015". And I'm planning to Wonder Trade them all at approximately 12:00 pm EST (noon) on January 1st, 2015. These aren't rare Pokémon, they're statistically average, and they don't have any egg moves or hidden abilities. But if you're interested in getting one of these commemorative Pokémon, stock up on Pokémon to Wonder Trade at the given time in the hopes of nabbing one for yourself!
