Recent and Future MOCs

So I've been notably absent on BZP for a long while now, in large part is because of the site slowly plunging further into a death spiral of inactivity. Which I somewhat regret, as I more or less grew up on here. But, leaving reflections on BZP's importance for another time, my main point now is to direct everyone to where my recent MOCs can be found, as they certainly aren't in BBC anymore.   All MOCs of mine going forward can be found on either my Instagram (@ballomnomnom), or my Flickr (Ballo

A Terse BrickFair Recap

BrickFair was pretty awesome! I got a lot of neat Bionicle/CCBS loot, I met a lot of cool people who I hadn't met when I last went, and I had a lot of cool conversations with people there (especially since I'm marginally less socially awkward than when I was there before lol). A very good time overall!   More detailed entry to possibly follow?

I'm Alive! And Attending BrickFair!

Title kind of says all. I look forward to once again seeing folks at BrickFair VA! I'll even have a couple of MOCs to display, despite being way away from most all my parts.   How's everyone doing? Excited for BrickFair too?

Ten Whole Years (Plus a Month)

*Obligatory "hey you're not dead!" goes here*   As of about a month ago in June, I celebrated my ten-year anniversary on BZPower. Ten years is a really long time! Longer than I've done just about anything else, really. Probably something to be celebrated in some fashion. At least I get a sweet Tohu spinny. Granted, for the last four years especially, I haven't exactly done much at all on BZP other than be alive, occasionally lurk, and also post a MOC now and then because college intruded frequen

Nine Years!

A few days ago I had my nine-year anniversary on BZP. One more and that's an entire decade on this site. Another year after that and I'll have been on BZP half my life. Wow, isn't that one scary? Crazy to think that it's been so long. But it's been a fun journey with all you folks! Here's to many more years, eh?   Anyway, hopefully this summer I'll have some free time to MOC, since I haven't really built anything since New Year's. I still have those unused parts draft pieces, as well as a birthd

Smash Bros Time

I now own the new Smash Bros for Wii U. And it is absolutely magnificent. My entire time playing it I'm grinning like an idiot at the amazing music, graphics, and everything and seriously guys this game is the best you should all get it now.   (Also I'm a bit annoyed at the removal of instant C-stick smashes, and the related bug for C-stick aerials killing momentum. But that's not too big a deal with custom controller options to work around it.)   Now, if you excuse me, I have some more Nintendo

The Lone and Level Sands Continues

^ Link! ^ Yep, after two years a new chapter is posted for all of you to enjoy! Rejoice!   But really, it's not too convoluted a storyline, so if you guys have a few free moments, why not give it a read? Certainly can't hurt. And yes, I will continue to bump this relentlessly as chapters are added.   ~B~

Wish I Could go to BrickFair

Maaaaan I wish I could go to BrickFair so badly. It looks like it'll be so much fun this year. And I really regret how shy and overall antisocial I was two years ago. There were all of these awesome BZPower folks there who I barely talked to, partly from being really shy and partly from being irritable due to my injury at the time, and I wish I had another opportunity to get to know the people present (and make less dreadful impressions), especially as I joined Flickr around two years ago and ha

Regarding Bionicle's Supposed Return

Throwing this in a blog entry because B6 just closed the topic. Regarding this: I would be greatly more inclined (read: still not inclined in the slightest) to believe the claims of the topic if the name Bionicle were actually spelled correctly in the title.   Edit: On further sources of information, Ballom updates the status of the rumors to ... plausible. News at eleven.   ~B~

I made a MOC!

I made a thing for a contest! You should go check it out!     ^ Link! ^ I also posted another two things that I made for my eighth anniversary here. Only one of them is in the thumbnail, so check out the topic for the other and larger shinier pictures!     ^ Link! ^   ~B~

BBCC History

So I was just thinking about past BBCCs on BZP, and I ended up digging up an old version of the topic on the Wayback Machine. That nostalgia, man. Too bad the list isn't complete, and a lot of MOCs aren't archived, leaving many dead links. Still, good to look back on.   That got me thinking about how currently BZP doesn't have a history topic for the new forums and the contests we've had here. Someone should compile the list of results for those contests. Given that I have some free time, I was

Only Mostly Dead

*Blow away cobwebs*   Well, that school college-type thing kind of wrapped itself up for a bit, and I thought I'd visit good old BZP, and see how things are going around here. I wonder when I last blogged, I think to myself. Twice in the last year, apparently. TWICE. A good indicator of my activity level on BZP recently: abysmally low. Let's try to fix that, then!   Sooo, yep. I'm making an effort to actually do stuff on BZP this summer. Although I have a job later, that shouldn't be too much of

Cancelling the A-MOC-alypse, Starting Epic Topics

Hello again, folks! I know I promised to be on BZPower more, but I sadly have been busy with various things related to school for the last month. However, I have been busy MOCing and writing, and so now I bring some new updates on various topics!   First of all, after watching Star Trek into Darkness, I saw a slew of new summer movies over the next few weeks, the most awesome of which was Pacific Rim. That movie, in all its brawling, Super Robot Wars-esque Jaegers vs. Kaiju glory, got me thinki

I'm Baaack!

Greetings, BZPower! After about four months of hiatus, due to grueling college classes, I am finally able to spend more time here. So I figured I'd return to the blogosphere to give you all an update. It's great to be back! Also, new spinny! While it's not quite as lovely as the Faxon, it's a very nice shade of gold, and the MoLi gets the job done.   First of all, I have a shiny new MOC built for BBC 65, which I will post soon. That was a very refreshing and fun build, something I've missed doi

Sick as a Dog + New MOC

Whooo, woke up today with the flu. And I had a midterm to deal with as well, no less. At least that happened early enough in the day that I didn't feel absolutely awful yet, like I do now.   But you know what would help me feel (a little bit) better? If you guys could give my BBC 64 entry a little love. It's one of the better MOC's I've posted in a while, so it would be appreciated.     ~B~

A New Year, A New Load of Parts

So I went to a mall in Glendale with my family yesterday, and as luck would have it, I found a LEGO Store there. The first thing I noticed was the huge back wall, which was lined with Pick a Brick cubicles -- and I'm talking even more than the Pick a Brick at the nearest LEGO Store to my hometown. It took me quite a white to stuff a large cup, and the store was all out of lids, so I had to get it taped over, but I managed to get a nice haul of pieces once again.   No comment on how many of the

BBC Contests

Man, I hope another one comes along soon. It's been quite the long while since BBC 63, and even though the results aren't up for that contest, I'm starting to wish that we can just move on anyway (although I wouldn't mind finally knowing who won). If the higher-ups are too busy, maybe one of the FAs like Sumiki could host the new contest. I'm sure he'd be able to come up with a creative theme.   As it is, I miss the bimonthly BBC contests of previous years.   ~B~

Christmas Loot

Because yay, Christmas and the various goodies that accompany it. I received, in all:   - 3DS XL - Speeda Demon - Warp Stinger - some comfy shirts - a BrickLink order of my choosing - various candy - some cash   I was particularly grateful for the BrickLink order, and Warp Stinger, as those both yielded some great parts to MOC with. In fact, I spent quite a while building yesterday, which was fun.   Although it's the day after, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, BZP!   ~B~

Pokemon White 2 Final Team

This is really as of two weeks or so ago, but I kept forgetting to post it. As of now, I've beaten Benga's team at the bottom of the White Treehollow, which pretty much means I've done about everything in the story mode.   Haxorus "Tasuku" Lv.92 @ Leftovers Outrage Earthquake Rock Slide Dragon Dance   Crobat "Ryusei" Lv.91 @ Black Sludge Fly Cross Poison X-Scissor Zen Headbutt   Lucario "Kyosuke" Lv.91 @ Expert Belt Aura Sphere Dark Pulse Ice Punch ExtremeSpeed   Arcanine "Bullet" Lv.91 @ Ch

So, About Star Wars

As long as the next films are based on good EU books (with luck, the Thrawn trilogy), I have a lot of optimism for this. I don't expect Disney to totally bungle anything for such a juggernaut of a franchise.   And, of course, just the fact that there's more movies coming is exciting.   ~B~

Front Page!

Le gasp!   Needless to say, this made me quite happy. Thanks for posting my MOC as a story, Sean!   (Which member is Sean again, by the way? I have a hard time keeping track of reporter names . . . )   ~B~

Pokemon Black 2 and White 2!

Yes, they are both out in the USA, and my brother and I grabbed one of each at our local Gamestop today! Granted, I'm pretty busy with schoolwork, and so therefore I haven't been able to play much today.   But still! It is awesome, no?   ~B~
