    [MOC] These Romans are crazy..!!

    Oh my God. This is sheer perfection. It's been years since I sat down with an Asterix comic, and this MOC took me right back there. Absolutely spot-on. I love that you even included Fulliautomatix and Unhygienix. That's some major dedication, right there.

    Voltrahk; Rahkshi of lightning

    This is lovely. Ever since I got the 2016 Toa, I've been wondering if I could repurpose those CCBS waists to make G2 Rahkshi. I guess I now have my answer.

    Shiver My Timbers - Muppets Treasure Island

    One of my favourite films for years and years. Amazing recreation. Although, some of the editing on the animals was a little uncanny valley-esque for my taste. The octopus's eyes in particular looked sort of... murder-y. But other than that, it was amazingly faithful and really well-crafted.

    I was stuck inside on a rainy day watching Gravity Falls and John Carpenter movies and, well... this happened...

    DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    Honestly, I don't know where everyone suddenly got the idea that these are going to be minidoll sets. Call me old-fashioned, but I think it makes sense to wait until we've seen some pictures before running shirtless into the street wailing about the end of days. In my experience, rampant speculation like this based on next to no info is more often than not a fool's errand, so let's all take a deep breath and calm down until we've got something concrete.

    DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    This has been pretty much my line of thinking since I saw the first batch of photos. When I first got it, I thought the Funhouse Escape was the new gold standard for villain sets, and I still love it to bits, but adding it to Jokerland really opens up a lot of possibilities for a full-on Arkham City-style carnival of death.

    On a lighter note from last week, here's Muppet Treasure Island!

    Hello and welcome to the Adaptation Nation...

    We're going a bit more serious this week with a closer look at Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley.

    Hello and welcome to the Adaptation Nation...

    This week's film is not much of an adaptation per se, but it's got an interesting history of revision and alteration nonetheless. It's 1992's Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

    Hello and welcome to the Adaptation Nation...

    I regret that I have once again been out of the game for so long, but I'm back now with a review of the Raul Julia masterpiece !

    Bionicle 2015 Discussion

    This is one of the biggest points in the reboot's favour, in my opinion. All the Toa have got some pretty neat upgrades, but there's still a clear resemblance to their G1 builds. Each one of them has something in his or her build that, when I look at it, definitely makes me think "Yeah, okay, I can see where they were looking at the Mata/Nuva designs." Tahu's lava surfboard is pretty similar to his Nuva design, as are Lewa's "wings", but there's also plenty of fresh ideas to make it not feel like a cheap rehash. Gali's trident, Onua's hammer, and Pohatu's boomerangs are things I never would have considered those characters could/should have, but they make sense when you look at them. I never got any of the Mistoka sets because I couldn't buy that these were the same characters that I'd grown up with, but with the G2 figs, it seems to be a very natural "evolution" of the character designs. All of the figures have incorporated some new concepts, but they're still the same old Toa. (And yeah, Kopaka is one of the more impressive ones.)

    Mr. Giggles

    All I could think of was Tim Curry in It. "Do you have Prince Albert in a can? You DO? Well, you better let the poor guy out! Wah-hah! Wah-hah! Wah-hah! Wah-hah!"

    Bionicle 2015 Discussion

    I think it's a symptom of a larger problem: namely, Lego is far too cheap to pay for half-decent VAs these days. They have the one guy doing every voice (including Gali! ) for Bionicle, to the point where they all sound the same. And it's not just this theme either: the voice acting in the Ultra Agents app really makes me cringe. My training is primarily in stage acting, but I could still act circles around the guys they hire.
