On the other hand, the local initiative to ban the sale of items made from rare animals passed. I mean, I'm kind of disappointed that it wasn't already a thing, but it's official now. Stop killing Rhinos, kay.
I've seen other pop culture decals on cars and I'm thinking I would like to have the original Kanohi on the back of mine. But how easy / difficult is it to get something like that printed? (And not bumper stickers... window decals are easy to move around if need be.)
Also kinda surprised I didn't blog at all in April or May. I mean, I've been a'lurkin' but just haven't posted stuff I guess. Been busy with
And, since I guess I haven't mentioned it here yet, I do have a flight and registration paid for BrickFair Virginia this summer. Not a 100% guarantee that I'll make it, but I'd be wasting a lot of money if I cancel now.
YOU JUST CAN'T GET RID OF ME.
I WILL KEEP POSTING AND POSTING.
LIKE THE ENERGIZER BUNNY, EXCEPT WITHOUT THE QUALITY PART.
I now have a spinning, decapitated Breez head under my avatar. Yay.
But 2015 wasn't a terrible year. It was not a great year, but now I'm angry at outside forces instead of myself, so yay progress. Plus, y'know, we have the Toa reappear as sets; always a plus.
So here's to 2016; I hope the world doesn't come crashing to a horrible and devastating end where we all die painfully. Cheers.
The people of the universe suffered greatly at the hands of the Sith, until one day when
After many years (three of which were prequels) the Jedi accomplished this task, and the Force awoke. But alas, this was all part of the Sith's master plan, and before the Force's spirit could return to it's body (which was the entire universe) the leader of the Sith slipped in and took control of it. The Force was then expelled from the universe, landing on a distant desert planet of Jakku. Now mostly powerless, the Force must help the war torn locals and learn how to become a true Hero.
That is the tale of the Star Wars.
The basic premise: The main Hero characters are somehow defeated and only their cores remain. Throw in some cross-dimensional rifts and stuff. They end up on earth. A human picks up the hero core. Hero is summoned. Run around world finding other Heroes. Yay!
The premise is kind of campy. Like, I can name at least three Anime I’ve seen that do this; something is trapped inside some small, carry-able object and can be released to do battle. (And to my credit, Pokemon is like the third one I thought of.) But none of those Anime have been particularly intriguing to me, so I can’t help but think this plot point might be a little too market-y, gotta-collect-them-all type of a thing. But I have some ideas that would let me explore the Heroes as characters (something the tv show only did moderately well in the first season) and also play around with maybe a few human characters I haven’t really tried before. (One problem is, some of those ideas I want to try may be a bit to “adult” for BZPower.)
I dunno, I might try it out and post it here, just to do something differently. I haven’t posted a whole lot of “real world” stories on BZP before, mostly Bionicle. This would be a “Hero Factory characters in the real world” but still counts.
