Can you say, “best elaboration-of-fanart-floating-on-the-internet“? 

It’s Star Wars … steampunk-style, yow!

Customs by Sillof, as featured in the recently-concluded CustomCon 21.

[Also featured: The Lost Wave, by my favorite customizer, Iron Cow.]

voltron kiddie meal.

The kiddie meal for Jollibee this month is … Voltron!

If you’re a kid of the 80’s / 90’s you probably grew up with this guy.  (How could he not be awesome?  He has lions for hands!)

Typical kiddie meal quality — parts snap off easily (most especially black lion’s ears) and some of the lions have warped legs. (Probably from how they were stored.) My green lion doesn’t fit well in the left arm slot (and noticably has very loose joints) — making my Voltron semi-complete. He looks okay standing up, but if I try to move him, green lion will fall right off!

Is this an isolated incident, or do I have to replace green / black lion?

For my album, check it here.

hrudu and the giant beetle.

(touch the magical horn, ese)

For this year’s toycon, I skipped the usual action figures, and instead, I got a giant atlas beetle plushie.  Everyone wanted a piece of it, I shit you not.

(size comparison)

(flash drive and jigen for size comparison of the other beetle)

P.S.
Congratulations to Azrael and the other organizers for the successful event! I actually viewed the ustream before going!

omega male military get.

sf_54.jpg

I got an Omega Male Military Stikfas set today! (More pics when I find my Alpha Male Motorcycle set.)

What is Stikfas? It’s basically an action figure template. 3.25″ figures that you build yourself that comes with accessories appropriate to the playset you get. (say you get a ninja set, you get swords and shurikens for accessories; get a mobster set, and you get a trench coat, tommy gun and guitar case accessory.) Designed with playability and customization in mind, some people have gone on to do repaints to recreate their favorite characters in Stikfas form.

I think I might get back into Stikfas instead — over the last years, they’ve added color (they used to come in dark gray only before), more playsets / character types and have gone down in price! (The opposite direction for the 6″ figures…)

It’s pretty neat having something to play around with on my desktop, while waiting for things to load / upload / download on the computer.

Pro-tips!
* If you don’t have an X-Acto knife, (like me!) you could use a nailclipper to cut out the parts from the tray.
* After doing so, it’ll leave nasty cuts on the spot where the part was attached to the tray … sandpaper 40 is your friend.
