Cheap rip offs and Jabba the Cutt.

I'd like to think I make sufficient an impact on the forums that people would notice that I'd gone on holiday for a week, but that's probably wishful thinking.   Anyway, I've been in Cornwall for the week. Most of it was beaches, playing pool, and having to drive far too much. The one day I'll cover in slight detail is Friday, or at least I think it was Friday. Me and my friends went to Truro. While walking about the shopping area, my eyes were drawn to Hawkin's Bazaar, mainly as I thought

Out of practice

My attempts to go without Lego while my exams were on failed, however they lasted long enough for my abilities with power functions to diminish somewhat. Where once I could build a fastish, solid, good looking car, there is now a slow, slightly wobbly car with no bodywork at all. And unfortunately I can't rectify this, because I still have exams and only have a little bit of time to devote to these things...

Sidorak

I started making a revamp of Sidorak maybe a month ago, then I got bored and finished him off rather lazily, then took one photo before my rubbish camera's batteries ran out. I had better uses for the parts, so I took Sidorak apart before I could take any more pictures. Didn't think a single picture was topic worthy, so here it is in blogness.

Matoran Language

Anyone know where I can find the font with the correct symbols used for numbers? I found a version on BZP, but that doesn't have the correct symbols for numbers.

Iron Man 3 Review

Yeah, this is going to be another one of those entries that says it was good.   Which it was.

A fond farewell

Today I bade farewell to the car I learnt to drive in. Its been a firm friend, naturally there were good times, bad times, and of course, the time it took me ten minutes to get the bonnet open.   So if on peoples worldly travels, you see a little blue Ford Ka registered KG03 OGN, say 'Hi' from Taipu1. Although the likely hood is that it will be scrapped.   However, I have a bright future ahead of me with a Volkswagen Up!!

Avengers

In preparation for seeing Iron Man 3 on Sunday, I thought it best to finally get around to watching the Avengers.       Brain has exploded.   In other news, I'm getting a new car on Tuesday.

Akamai and Wairuha

I've been toying with the idea of MOCing Akamai and Wairuha, but with a less stunted appearance.   But with that: What colour schemes do you think would be good? My personal thoughts were Gold and Red for Akamai, and Silver and green for Wairuha, but that perhaps doesn't give much credit to the other 4 Toa involved in the process of forming Kaita.

Ignika

And my spinny has just ticked over to the 7 year ignika.   Geez, I now feel old.   And I think I preferred how the Faxon looked.

Tohu Icon

Where can I find a Tohu icon file for my BZP desktop shortcut? I'm tired of having the standard Firefox shortcut icon.

Simpsons on Channel 4

After years of showing the same episodes repeatedly, Channel 4 have finally gotten around to showing an episode that they've shown before, many times. Luckily, its the most awesome episode ever conceived.   Tomorrow, at 6pm UK time, Hank Scorpio will return.   And I am excited for this most epic of Simpson's episodes.

Motor has landed

This is some sweet stuff I've got here. The servo motor makes quite an annoying beeping noise, although it can't be heard over an XL-motor.

Shoes

Anyone else ever own the epic Nike trainers from back in '03 with the Nuva masks on the toes? I miss those...

Iconic

IF there's a more Iconic image in Bionicle, I haven't seen it.

Can't put my finger on it

So I made this enhanced version of my avatar, but I don't want to use it, because there is something wrong with it. Can people critique it, so I can work out what is wrong with it? Because something is wrong with it, I just don't know what it is.

New Epic

Working on a new epic, and taking a different style to normal. Less crash/bang action, more sort of political, maybe? Probably not the right word. Action with intermediate spells of sophisticated dialogue regarding the reasons for the action. Or something like that.

Incoming

Just made the payment on my largest bricklink order to date. It includes a metallic gold Kaukau and a copper mask of victory. I've been meaning to get one of those ever since I got full proto. Also include are a lot of epic technic pieces of varying levels of awesomeness.   In other news, I believe my premier membership is going to expire some time in the very near future. I'd like to post pictures of the new parts, but I may not be able to if I lose control of this Blog. Will work on renew

Victory

I spent what felt like an entire evening searching for a single Lego piece, and it didn't end in disappointment.

Best Physics lesson ever

Measuring speed of sound by the doppler effect. The first part involved a stopwatch, a sound recording, and my folding bike.   The second less conventional, and less legal on multiple levels part was using my mates Fiat 500 down the road at the front of the school.   The first run was hilarious, my mate drove down the road at 45mph (30 limit ), while I stick my head out of the window playing the harmonica (Well, one continuous note). We later did it again, this time with the car horn instead o

Captain of the Aquila

New I shoulda preordered AC3, I was like a day late for getting that DLC. Don't see why you can't just have the outfit anyway, you wear it on the Aquila, why not outside of naval missions?

Assassins Creed 3

I have now got it, and it's pretty good. I haven't tried online play yet though. Trying to get to grips with the controls, which seem to be slightly different to AC1 and 2 (I don't have Brotherhood or Revelations). Loving the tree climbing though. Tomahawk has so far not come across as overly awesome, although I haven't used it that much.

Mata Nui Update

I've been working on my Toa Mata Nui MOC, made a few minor adjustments to the arms and legs, and completely rebuilt the torso. 01 Kanohi look good as torso pieces, but making them stay in place is a nightmare, I've made them a little more solid than they were, but they still come off more than I'd like. Don't suppose anyones found a good technique for holding '01 masks in place?   I also really wish the Ruru was available in Keetorange.

Another thing done

I've got another thing done, and got a MOC up in the BBC forum.   You know I'd look it were I in your position.
