Cancelling the A-MOC-alypse, Starting Epic Topics

Posted by Ballom , Aug 05 2013 · 100 views
Hello again, folks! I know I promised to be on BZPower more, but I sadly have been busy with various things related to school for the last month. However, I have been busy MOCing and writing, and so now I bring some new updates on various topics! :D

First of all, after watching Star Trek into Darkness, I saw a slew of new summer movies over the next few weeks, the most awesome of which was Pacific Rim. That movie, in all its brawling, Super Robot Wars-esque Jaegers vs. Kaiju glory, got me thinking about an appropriate entry for the Titans and Monsters Contest, which led to my latest creation, Vermillion Tempest! Inspired by the likes of Gipsy Danger, it's sure to strike fear into the hearts of pint-sized Kaiju everywhere, and as Stacker Pentecost so memorably said, "bring the fight to them!"

Of course I have been busy with other MOCs too. There's the Hummaera I built for BBC #65, which I am proud to say is roosting in Virginia right now at Brickfair. And then there's a little blue robot I made, the Tactically Corpulent Drone, which is so chubby and cute you just want to scream. :wub:

Finally, after Hahli Husky graciously gave us permission to repost old stories in the Epics forum, I have reposted the first epic in my Terra Nui Trilogy, The Power Within. It's not my most refined or best piece of fan-fiction, but it got me started here on BZPower, and I'm still proud that I finished it and became a better writer in composing its sequels. But it's back for your viewing pleasure, along with a review topic for the entire trilogy, which can be accessed here. I'll be posting a chapter a day, I expect, so stay tuned!



I'm Baaack!

Greetings, BZPower! After about four months of hiatus, due to grueling college classes, I am finally able to spend more time here. So I figured I'd return to the blogosphere to give you all an update. It's great to be back! :D Also, new spinny! While it's not quite as lovely as the Faxon, it's a very nice shade of gold, and the MoLi gets the job done.
First of all, I have a shiny new MOC built for BBC 65, which I will post soon. That was a very refreshing and fun build, something I've missed doing since I built Sectoid Mantodea way back in February. Expect many more MOCs to be posted during the summer, since Obsidian Shadow is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to old creations that I have yet to showcase in BBC. I also hope to add to The Lone and Level Sands pretty soon too.

In other news, I have also been playing a lot of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and I just beat Ceadeus a few days ago and unlocked High Rank. That will be fun to play through, let me tell you. And as far as video games are concerned, I'm really excited about the news from E3. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze? Super Smash Bros for the Wii U? Pikmin 3? Heck yes!
And just today, I finally got to see Star Trek into Darkness after a month of waiting to watch it. An excellent film, just as good as its predecessor, if not even better. As Ta-metru_defender and others have said before me, go see it. Now I just need to watch Iron Man 3 . . .
So anyway, how are you all doing?


Sick as a Dog + New MOC

Posted by Ballom , Feb 12 2013 · 157 views
Whooo, woke up today with the flu. And I had a midterm to deal with as well, no less. At least that happened early enough in the day that I didn't feel absolutely awful yet, like I do now.
But you know what would help me feel (a little bit) better? If you guys could give my BBC 64 entry a little love. It's one of the better MOC's I've posted in a while, so it would be appreciated.

A New Year, A New Load of Parts

Posted by Ballom , Dec 31 2012 · 150 views
So I went to a mall in Glendale with my family yesterday, and as luck would have it, I found a LEGO Store there. The first thing I noticed was the huge back wall, which was lined with Pick a Brick cubicles -- and I'm talking even more than the Pick a Brick at the nearest LEGO Store to my hometown. It took me quite a white to stuff a large cup, and the store was all out of lids, so I had to get it taped over, but I managed to get a nice haul of pieces once again.

Posted Image
No comment on how many of the light blue round studs I bought. Let's just hope that I have less of these than those switches I bought a while ago.

I also picked up two new 2013 Hero Factory sets! That's right, they had both Pyrox and Ogrum at the store, and since those two have some of the best new parts of the first wave, I bought them.

Posted Image
"What're you lookin' at?"

Needless to say, they both suffer from their share of problems. Pyrox has a hideous head, stubby limbs, and only one of that awesome new trans-orange armor piece. Ogrum is missing a hand on his right arm, which ends in a ball joint for no good reason (a la Hewkii Mahri). And they both suffer from short height and having ridiculous giraffe necks, a la Bitil, Speeda Demon, and Voltix. Still, they make a veritable treasure trove of new parts. There's Hero Factory armor now in dark red, dark green, and reddish brown. Brown! At last, it returns! :happydance:

Finally, I have their new bloodsucking brain/eye pieces.

Posted Image
I don't know what they're officially named, but I like to think of them as Brain Jackers or Spine Slugs. Whatever they are, they're cool.

That's all for now, but expect some interesting MOCs made with some of these parts in the future. Now to wait for the eventual BBC contest . . .

If I May Quote Myself

In blog entry "An Analogy -- Life is like a Rubik's Cube: sometimes you need to screw everything up to get it all right."
Or everyone. Posted Image

In response to Seran's WIP image of his Boxor MOC
Although this may be a completely wild guess, I do believe that is a picture.

In blog entry "Dlakii"
Oh my. I didn't know that they made metal sporks.

In "Is there ever a time when you can't post?"
No, since I can always to to GD and post a couple hundred times. XD

In response to "I've forgotten how to blog"
Click "Add entry". Then enter a moronic title. Then click on the text section, mash your keyboard with your fists for as long as you wish, and post it. Congratulations, you now can blog better than the majority of BZP.

In response to "How often do you accidentally post in the wrong topic?
Never. I have these magical devices called eyes and this thing called a brain which prevent that. They're quite handy.

In "The weakest element"
Xenon, or perhaps Radon and Argon. Really, a Toa of Noble Gas can't control much at all, due to how few things they bond with. Xenon hexafluoride is all that immediately comes to mind, in fact.

In "Hardest thing to MOC"
Fluffy pink tutus. Mainly because of the slight handicap of pink Bionicle pieces not existing.

In "Talking to staff members"
Talking to staff members? Well, I'm generally okay with it as long as I have my pepper spray nearby.

In "Mask powers"
Hurr durr.

In "What did you do during the downtime"
I sat in a shadowy corner in a fetal position for five days, rocking back and forth in a crazed manner.

In "How do you imagine yourself on BZP?"
I am a Nidoking, obviously. How these stubby little claws are capable of typing on a keyboard I'll never know. :P

In blog entry "Bascula"
Hooray, I'm a geek.
