Coming Soon: Buckbeak!!!!

Coming Soon: Buckbeak!!!!

Okay, so… obviously I’m excited. But even for people who are not Potterheads, you have to admit that the feathered models that Metal Earth and Piececool have released are generally some of the more gorgeous ones. Ironically, when Metal Earth asked what other flying creatures people might want, this (and Fawkes, the phoenix) were top […]

Build: Tenyo AT-ACT, Color Mod

Build: Tenyo AT-ACT, Color Mod

Well, I was finally able to get it for a good price. I don’t often get Tenyo models, because the price + shipping from Japan makes them rather expensive (I still want to get the Buzz Lightyear model someday). But I came across this model for not a terrible price, and since it’s both Star […]

Survey: To Rage or Not to Rage

Survey: To Rage or Not to Rage

Over the years of building these models, I’ve noticed that there are generally two camps when it comes to reactions to things not going well with a build: rage quitters and the doggedly stubborn. Of course, there are also those that cross over, depending on the scenario. I, myself, fall into the doggedly stubborn group, […]

Build: Droid Pack Threepio

Build: Droid Pack Threepio

As promised, I did finish building the C-3PO from the Disney Parks exclusive Droid Pack.

Having built it now, I have a different opinion. […]

This Is Long Overdue…

This Is Long Overdue…

I mean, really, I should have done this a long time ago, right? I decided to build my latest Threepio build in an out-of-order sort of way, constructing all the extremities and torso sections without connecting them all, just so I could take a photo of Threepio in a pile of parts. Then, when sharing […]

Coming Soon: More on Piececool Street

Coming Soon: More on Piececool Street

It appears that Piececool is returning with 4 more entries into the Tang Dynasty Street Scene, similar to the Datang Street Scene it has released before. The models being added this time include The Casino, Cloth Store, Yihong Garden, and Tang Dynasty Scenery Set. I really like the idea of these “diorama” style sets of […]

Coming Soon: Donghua Wonderland

Coming Soon: Donghua Wonderland

Sometimes things get lost in translation. Other times they get added. This seems to be an unfortunate case of the latter that was not caught on review. Putting that aside, this looks like another whimsical model, much like the Moon Palace. Furthermore, it looks like it’s might end up being part of a set, given […]
