The name Shakar takes me back when I was a huge General Grievous fan. Before seeing ROTS, that is...he was such a wimp during the short time he was alive. Anyway, I wanted to change my username over BZP. So I began looking for a GG related name, and I found out that, apparently, his full name was Grievous Shakar. I really liked that name so I decided to adopt it. Now it has grown so much on me that it has become my offcial nickname.

Many months later, I found out that it was fan made name. Still..did you know Shakar means "grateful" in Arabian?

Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

I...like Star Wars and Muppets.  So jedikermit came out of that.  I should really have a Jedi Kermit avatar, but my friend drew a Green Lantern Kermit.  Which I really liked.  So there it is.  Confusing?  Not really.

Nadroj, I was a Captain at BZP, hence the rank change.  Since then, I've shortened it to Lt.Col. Thok.

Right, this isn't to hard.....

The first part of my name is dragon for an obvious reason... I  *wub* dragons! Therefor I had to have it somewhere in my name.

When thinking of the second part to it, I for some reason thought of the Terminator, which is a movie (although you all probably know this already :-| ). Anyway, I thought that the idea of a terminator goes well with dragons, as they 'terminate' the competition....  *skull*

So I put two and two together and got dragonator, which I thought sounded quite nice.  X-D

My name is simple. When I joined clubpenguin (ugg after awihle I relized how  :-X  that game was) I normally would use my moms madien name, Howsley. Well after awihle I relized it was not a very catchy name and so I came up with doug7172. Doug is from my name and 7172 is my old address. Pretty pathitic huh :-$ ?

My sig-name is related to my other hobby besides lego, playing guitar

fender because it's my favorite brand of guitar and bender because i frequently use bent notes while playing (it was actually a friend who first called me a fender-bender)

Some people ask if I'm a futurama fan for some reason... :-D

The 'Mr' sounds a bit pompous to my own ears, but just 'Spielbrick' seemed a bit undefined. Feel free to call me Spielbrick any time, though. Or Philip, if we're going for real names.  :-)

Obviously, Spielbrick is a name that's suspiciously closely related to Spielberg. I am a big fan of his films and am currently studying to become a professional film director. Back in the days of Lego Studios, I used to make trailer and short clips with Lego. Now I am preparing to make at least one Lego short of 5 to 10 minutes.

Hence, Mr Spielbrick.
Big fan of licensed themes and collectable minifigures.
Still trying to get a short brickfilm out there at some point...

Er...Mr. jifel, please remove the ultimate Beatles fan from your sig.  Your lack of LSD tells me that you are sorely in need of a rude awakening.

X-D   Oh, good, that was spam.  I originally wanted my username to be "John Lennon", but I was young, and stupid, so I made it Lt. Col. Thok.

My nickname has a quite long history. It was my nickname at school from the 5th grade (back in 1999) onwards. I first used it with the term RCT, in a german coaster game community page and NL at two english coastersim pages, and I'm still using it there. Then I used just WIddi in brickshelf and so on maj.com and now in any forum, I'm using. Including this forum and a german weather and scenic photography forum. And Widdi is just a cut version of my real family name, but with -di in the back. It's an old nickname, since it's in use since 8 years now with two variations.
