Sooooooooooooo...... It's been awhile BZP. A long while actually. Over two years since my last build. (Kreger, which I built in Dec of 2011 but didn't post until June 2012). But I'm back at it again, and, hopefully, I'll be building considerably more frequently. I brought some pieces out of storage to my apartment, so the plan is to build more. We'll see how that goes. Anyways, onto the more important thing: (Click for larger size) First off, you'll have to pardon me on the photo. M
So whoa, forgot this thing still existed. Anywho, been really busy and such this past year, doubt that I'm going to be any less busier. Shipping out to Utah for a week on Sunday and then moving into a new apartment when I get back, so I don't think I'll be by the pieces for a good while. However, I did manage to build something (well actually I built It awhile ago and have just now taken some decent pictures of it) (click on the picture to go to the topic)
Well, to start things off, first year in a loooooooooong while that I did not get any Lego whatsoever for Christmas. I think the last time that happened, the Piraka had just been announced and I wasn't too interested in Bionicle at the time (although I got interested in it again when the Inika came out, so that was pretty short lived). Well, who knows, maybe I'll get some Lego on my Birthday in t-minus 5ish days. Anywho, I got: A box of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies Two Brooks Brothers Bow-ti
So, dunno how many of y'all know about Lego CUUSOO, but essentially people can post up "projects" and if there's enough support from other users, Lego will review the project and it has a shot at being a set. So, I thought that I would post up my old Midak Mech on it and see if it gains any traction (because, personally, seeing a MOC become a Lego set would be pretty awesome) and also because I think it's the most viable one. (image takes you to the CUUSOO project page) Feel free to suppor
I'll take more pictures once I make a new lightbox, my old one got smashed when I moved out of my apartment. There are some spots on this guy that I want to touch up, but I'm happy with the overall look of the MOC, especially the silhouette.
So glad to be done with finals, going to be enjoying my 2 week winter break. Already have at least one MOC in the works this break, we will see if I build any more. Looking forward to going back to work on the 3rd, but I miss being at school. It's kind of surreal thinking about the fact that I'm going to be 20 in less than 13 days. Time sure does fly.
So, howdy I guess.
I've been considerably busy this school term, what with doing 20 credit hours, pledging to a fraternity, having my own radio show, going to track meets, doing homework, participating in the Student Alumni Council, and a bunch of other stuff.
So, because I felt that I didn't want to get blindsided by all of the stuff I'm going to have to do once my classes start to ramp up (and I know they will, considering 3 of the 5 classes I'm taking are Sophmore I level classes and I
So, I think it's just insane how much my life is different than what it was like right when I graduated high school (which was only 10 months ago). There was a month of downtime between when High School ended and "College" (in my case, "Work") started.
In the past 9 months, I've:
Had 3 school terms, yet only even been on campus for one Worked 40 hours a week for 6 months Moved out of my parents house Joined a fraternity Rented my own apartment Started paying taxes Learned that I'd rat
Like, stupid rich. Because there are just somethings that you can only get when you're so rich you don't know what to do with yourself.
Just to note though, at 180k (USD), the Morgan Aero Supersports is cheaper than a 458 Italia by about 130k. And I totally rather have the Aero.
So, um, I want to buy them all. Well, let me rephrase that. I want to buy 2 of all of the heroes, a witch doctor, and maybe Rocka XL.
But wow, LEGO has got me hooked on this line for the foreseeable future.
My Goals for MOCing:
-Make a Toa-Ju-esque MOC
-Make something that uses those Pridak Feet in a cool way
-Use more Mahri tubes (I love those)
-Build a good Fusion MOC
-Build some more non-Toa
-Make more rahi
-Use some of my cooler colored masks (in particular my green Kaukau or red Pakari)
(this is more of a check-list of things I want to do before I stop MOCing)
Well, I was actually looking for a different entry from my earlier years of having a blog, but this on
So if any of y'all have been following my blog recently, you'd know that I've been building some things (shocker there) and talking about a collaboration. I think.
Anyways, I have been working on a collaboration, and its still way in progress.
Of course, I'm referring to the
BIONICLE WITHOUT THE BIONICLE BRICKFAIR COLLAB.
There are two sides, COG vs. Rebel. One is a strong military force, the other an underpowered uprising. Evil vs. Good. All that jazz.
Basically what I'm saying
