Yayyy, I finished the Stars! ...In spite of how not great they are! :P But I don't have to worry about them anymore, so maybe will move on to finishing 2015 now. Especially with the second wave releasing and having acquired that SDCC mask. Which is very pretty and I'm not pleased with how much I spent for it. Which I can't say for...

Ugh, Amiibo. I jumped the gun when it was announced that Dark Pit would be a Best Buy exclusive and bought a Japanese Black Pit that day. Unfortunately I did so after the prices had risen a little bit, thinking they probably wouldn't drop back. I was wrong. So I do definitely really regret what I spent. On the brighter side, I got a Palutena from Amazon despite her exclusivity! She was pretty easy to get even though I didn't think she would be at all. So not bad there. And she looks great.

I also finished Defensor. Since two of these are just remolds and one just a repaint, they Protectobot limbs aren't that exciting.. Except Rook. Rook is all sorts of awesome. Even if he gets swapped out for a Groove should Hasbro release him, I won't be mad I have him.

Then there's the Figuarts. Oh Bandai and Bluefin... Yoshi's domestic release finally, finally happened. And Bluefin, in my opinion, really did something I don't like with it. A lot of the Japanese retailers gave out a 1-Up Mushroom and effect parts with Yoshi. Bluefin decided to give those away at SDCC instead. Maybe they didn't have enough so they thought it was the best way to handle it, but I do wish I had gotten one or that they would have at least communicated to us that we wouldn't. Because two months of silence on Yoshi until he magically shipped was more than enough time for the info of the mushroom's existence to spread and thus expect to receive one as well. :/ Anywho... Next wave of Marvel stuff hit as well. Cap impressed me a lot solely just for being able to put his shield on his back, unlike the Figma. Love his look. And Hulk is magnificent! He's so hefty and wonderfully poseable. Finally Marika is the next step in finishing Gaim. Finally Gaim's only female Rider is here, with some much needed color diversity.

Some new (old) RPGs

Posted by Lucina in Infinite Fates, Jul 31 2015 · 32 views

Just grabbed Dragon Quest V and Radiant Historia for DS off of Amazon, am now waiting for them to ship.

Man I've wanted Radiant Historia ever since it came out and I'm finally going to have it weeeee


As far as Dragon Quest V, it'll be my second DQ game (after Dragon Quest IX in 2010), so I'm looking forward to it. If I enjoy it, I'll try and pick up both IV and VI and then cry about the remakes for VII and VIII not being in NA.

On the first day of Brickfair

Posted by Dina Saruyama in Scrimmy Bingus and the Crungy Spingus, Jul 30 2015 · 78 views

hoo boy was today exciting! After a day and a half on assorted buses, I finally made it to BFVA for the first time. I met a large assortment of BZP friends, even going so far as to do what the youth these days call "hanging out" with some of them. I played Settlers of Catan and remembered why that game has almost destroyed my family (and as usual people ended up with far too many sheep). I took part in an early parts draft that ended as they usually do for me: I grabbed all those pieces that seem fun without grabbing many that are more universally useful. Still, it was a win, and I could at least build some little things like these with them. I also got to see my crab for the first time in a year, which is good because I have missed it a lot. (It's probably still the best MOC I've ever made.)

It's probably a bit anticlimactic that, after all this fun and excitement, what I looked forward to most was getting to sleep in a bed for the first time in two days. (Buses SUCK.)

Day 1 of BrickFair VA

Posted by Jedi Master J. in The Library That Never Was, Jul 30 2015 · 54 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in and let you know how day one of BrickFair went. Honestly I didn't do much really, outside of walk around the convention center a lot since I wasn't sure really what to do really after setting up my MOCs (Which I am not sure they are in the right place. I mean the map say its a BIONICLE table, but I have heard Pop Culture want the space, so I wouldn't be surprise if it got moved. *shrugs*). Oh, and fail a lot at Bingo.

It was nice though getting to see some BZPers in person. Mind you, it is not the first time for such people like Aanchir, Lyichir, Team Farm Animals, and Black Six. But well, I got meet people like Lady K, Vezok's Friend, TLH, Turakii, and TLH's & Turakii's kid (Adorable child, btw) for first time, which was cool. Although I was pretty deer in headlights around them. Sorry.

But overall, I would say it was good first day (It was pretty exhausting day too. XD). I mean I did vomit in a Burger King parking, but honestly that's par for the course considering it always happens when I do anything new really.

That's about it really. Uh, I guess I will see some of you folks again on Friday since I won't be in today as I am going to being checking out some sights and stuff today with my friend. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have great week.

Amazing Moc Art

MASTER, OF, MAGMA!

Alright, so I don't ever do this type of thing, but I really wanted to give this the recognition it deserves. Mr.Cod, Owner/business partner? Not sure really, of Modalt Masks did a magma themed mask of fire awhile ago. It was beautiful piece. Well today he managed to top it with the Master of Magma!

Posted Image

I mean it's just beautiful... The attention to detail is amazing. You will notice the magma streaks on the leg armor actually line up despite the gaps in armor, which I find to be an amazing touch. Heres a link to the actual DA page where he posted it.

Final Blog Entry/AMA

Posted by Zox Tomana in Softly Call the Muster..., Jul 29 2015 · 69 views

So I had this blog entry typed up about this being my last entry since my premier seems to be expiring, but I accidentally deleted the text twice. I'm not typing it up a third time.

Oh, and as a celebration of a year of premier, gifted to me by that generous duck we know as Tekulo, I'm ending this off with an AMA!

So, Ask Me Anything!

Hurry!

Before I delete all this text again!

*cries for the loss of his write-up piece*

oh, and here's my last AMA entry if you ever wanted to look at it.

Since all the cool kids are doing it (and to explain where I'll be this weekend): I'm going to Brickfair as well! However due to work scheduling stuff and vacation limits I'm only going to be there from about 11 AM on Friday to about 5 PM on Sunday. I'm crashing with Black Six and Dina Saruyama at the inn near the convention center. I'm hoping I can meet as many people as I can during that time, but, we'll see!

See y'all there (who are going)! (See all the rest of y'all back on the internet.)

Actually leaving for BrickFair in a few minutes. Like, for real.

This is really cool, because I've wanted to go to this con since its first year in 2008, and it's finally happening.

See a bunch of you soon! But first, like twelve hours of travelling. Oh boy.

SDCC Exclusives

Posted by xccj in Team J.A.F., Jul 28 2015 · 64 views

The funny thing is I didn't go to the event at all! In fact, the entire time I was in my office at work because, y'know, weekend shift and all.

Posted Image

So these are the two SDCC Exclusives I was able to get ahold of. Sam Wilson Captain America was actually a win from Lego's Twitter raffle, which was very cool! (Like yeah, I tried reporting more on that for a reason.) I wasn't the only winner... I think they gave out 10 each of the figs and the masks over Twitter, but still a little mind boggling that I won.

The Skull Scorpio mask was bought off ebay for like $35. Which is I guess relatively cheap, but that's the most I've ever paid for a Bionicle mask. (Previous high was $25 for trans light blue Kaukau.) The Skull design is okay, although it would've been nicer to have one of the Toa's mask instead. (Mask of Jungle, anyone??) Still, looks rad under a black light, so I need to make a decent TNG MOC to use this one on.

Posted Image

Cap Sam Wilson is super detailed, with great printing on the front and back. And those legs aren't just printed red; they're two toned, so the entire lower leg is red, even on the back. I wonder if they'll put that level of detail into future mass production figs. He doesn't have his wings, but I did buy the regular Falcon, so they can swap out and Cap Sam Wilson can take to the skies. Overall, a highly detailed fig and a great example of an exclusive (AKA one you can live without but gosh it does look really cool in hand.)

Okay, I'm done with my bragging. (Although I guess winning also caused the Lego twitter to start following my twitter account... which, to be fair, has primarily been used on Lego contests in the last year. I did post a ton of picts for the Bionicle mask hunt.)

Looking For Ideas, And Money and 3 more...

*shuffling through the interwebs*

Oh, look. This old thing. *shakes dust off of blog*

Well, 'ello, 'ello, 'ello, BZPower! Sorry I haven't used this blog for big long time, but life-stuff happened. And I forgot about it. Yeah, that.

Well, I've been sitting idle on BZP for far too long. And I decided I need to crank out some more stories. I haven't written really anything for a while, and I have no good ideas at the moment. Hence, this.

The point of this is to get some IDEAS for upcoming Bonkle writing projects. If one of YOUUUUUU BZPeeps can give me a great idea (or several) then YOUUUUUU will be included in the comedy you thought up. Seems fair, write? (Heh. Right = Write. I kill myself. :P)

... What are you doing still reading? GET POSTING YOUR IDEAS IN THE COMMENTS BELOW!!

And The Summer Fun Cavalcade of Funness Continues...

Posted by Zatth in Zatth Blag, Jul 28 2015 · 76 views

Currently waiting to check out from GMIF. Wonderful two and a half weeks, as I previously elaborated.

Tomorrow morning, drive to the Dulles Expo Center for good ol' BerkFer VA.

Expect Xaeraz, Sumiki, and AT to carry my MOCs inside. Expect various vines and hats, maybe a pile of some sort. Expect random shenanigans, a seminar on Thursday that Xaeraz, Sumiki and I will give, and breadsticks. Many, many breadsticks.

Expect the unexpected. Unless you can expect everything that's unexpected. In that case... um... EXPECT THINGS *smokebombs away*

Steamboat Shenanigans

Posted by ChocolateFrogs in Scientific Progress Goes "Boink", Jul 28 2015 · 44 views
lego, steampunk, brickfair, MOC

Steampunk fans! Have you heard the sweet tunes of the Steam Powered Giraffe? For the uninitiated, they are a steampunk-themed rock band (with a slight hint of folk), and at shows they even act the part of being automatons through their movements and way they talk with each other. They have all kinds of songs, from things about steamboats to pirates and suspenders to magic. It's not a gimmick, their singing is really good and the songs are catchy!

So I immortalized them in LEGO for BrickFair's Steampunk theme:

Furthermore, I'm bringing another new Steampunk build, utilizing the Pteranodon:

And, almost surprisingly, there are more MOCs to come! I've been keeping busy the past couple of weeks, seeing as how I procrastinated on LEGO building for a while. Stay tuned!
