Of the sort you'd see on action figures and such. They provide a better range of articulation on, for example, a knee than a single joint would. I guess this could be that in LEGO form. Obviously it's possible to do something equivalent with two ball pieces or the super-short double socket piece, but thanks to the meshing gears this would only have one degree of freedom so the motion is smooth, rather than having to position the two pivots separately. The tradeoff is it probably isn't as easy
(last entry about this I swear) (probably) So… I entered the thing. Here's what the final design is. Chose three colors of shirt to display it. May as well show what it could look like, since they usually come in multiple colors. So yeah, rate it up and share it around if you're so inclined. Here's to another shirt.
So that last entry was mainly inspired by this thing by WeLoveFine. I guess they sort of just do ongoing contests now instead of big ones? Anyway, I was inspired to come up with a design for it but am unsure about entering it. I entered a previous contest several years ago, didn't win, still got made into a shirt, which was pretty neat. Anyway, I'm still conflicted on whether I want to enter or not. On the assumption that it would make it to production, of course. pros: - I would have design
It's popped up on Facebook a few times (thanks Aanchir) and what I saw was superheroes and adorable things, so I was like sure I'll see what's up. Saw it originated in France and figured that was a good sign, since my experience with French cartoons has been exceptionally positive. So over the past couple of days I watched the existing season, and found it very enjoyable. Except for one little thing. In my post-watch info scrape I found out that apparently the placeholder voice for Cat No
this is terrible [looks over at floor covered in 15 years of BIONICLE clutter] how will I ever go on [trips over bin of mostly-assembled sets] bionicle is gone forever [lands on several drawers full of pieces] there is literally nothing left for us [stands up, numerous weapons and armor bits stuck into skin spell out "every bionicle thing you own still exists"] what do we do [brushes pieces off, they scatter across piles of MOCs] nothing matters anymore
I saw the original one once, and the scene I remember most is the part where they're driving across the bridge discussing the apocalypse and one of the guys is like "this is too much doom and gloom" and turns on the radio to some epic drum machines. So I was disappointed at the lack of big cheesy drum machines in the new Ghostbusters movie. Other than that, though, I can't really think of any part of it I disliked. Also, Holtzmann is the best character.
Been watching a lot of stuff from Star Wars Celebration. Dave Filoni is such a master troll and I love him so much. Especially what he shared at the Ahsoka panel, that's some pretty amazing stuff. Rebels, though. Season 3 looks to be a good one.
Ten years ago today, at least according to Wikipedia, the first episode of Ōban Star-Racers aired. To this day it has its place alongside Avatar and Code Lyoko as some of my favorite animated TV. Unlike those, however, the story only spanned one season and it seems like not as many people remember it. Having bought and read "The Art of Oban Star-Racers" gave me a new appreciation of the effort put into this show. And before that, I'd managed to snag a couple of t-shirts from the Oban Fan Sh
I had entered a board game design into Hasbro's recent game contest, and this is what it'd look like and how it'd move. Didn't make it past submission phase (though they were nice enough to send an email to those not selected so we wouldn't be left in suspense) so I'm sharing it. Basically the game is based on a planetary gear system where the outer annular gear is the board's base and the sun and planet gears make up most of the playing area, with the connections filled in on the rotating ca
(gonna have a GOOD TIME) So I started watching Star vs. the Forces of Evil, since it was on after Gravity Falls. It's like if you took My Life as a Teenage Robot and replaced the robot theme with magic. Doesn't disappoint. (The characters are so adorable. Especially Marco.)
Not really. Well, sorta. Recorded a whole series of videos back when I did this (2013!) explaining much of the process and idea behind what I did. I doubt I'll ever put them out there, it's lots of dead air and ums and ahs and redundant or unimportant information. This is probably the one big thing worth sharing, which is the Arduino sketch I wrote to accompany the song "Disco Lights" by Alex S. and PinkiePieSwear from the big Balloon Party collaboration album. I liked it, but after runni
Oh nooooo, I've started to work up a character concept based on that leg. ;__; Oh well, I guess I'l just be wholly unsatisfied with myself until I actually build it or I get distracted by another idea.
