Build: Droid Pack Duo

Build: Droid Pack Duo

Why yes, I did just build an Artoo for my 300th build. I thought I’d build the R2-D2 model from the Disney Parks exclusive Droid Pack as a quick bonus follow-up post. But as it turns out, R2-D2 and BB-8 share 4 sheets between them, and a single set of instructions, so I figured, why […]

Build: Third Times a Charm!

Build: Third Times a Charm!

Build Number 300 is in the bag! That’s number 300 across all brands. At first, I was thinking I was going to do Piececool’s Black Dragon, since I’ve done Dragons for milestones before, but then I realized, I can do my third attempt at Artoo for the third-hundredth build. Kinda like I did the gold […]

Build: 30 Rockefeller Plaza

Build: 30 Rockefeller Plaza

I just couldn’t help myself. This building just demanded that I go a little silly with the staging of the size-comparison photo with Lego Chewie. And then it demanded that I make it black and white. So… deal with it. I know that some people like to just do the challenging models. And I do […]

Mod: Black Panther

Mod: Black Panther

When I finished my Black Panther build, I realized that there was a relatively non-invasive modification I could do that just had to be done. I had to “beat him up” so that his suit could store up some energy. So I ordered some glow-in-the-dark purple paint, and carefully, precisely, and delicately reminded myself of […]

Build: Black Panther

Build: Black Panther

This Black Panther model is both a marvel, and a beast! Yes, those were both intentional puns. But they also stand true. It is a very, very challenging build. And it is an absolute marvelous design. Whenever Metal Earth asks for suggestions / requests, I see people suggesting human characters from tv shows or movies. […]

Review Build: ICONX Imperial Star Destroyer

Review Build: ICONX Imperial Star Destroyer

Does this model really need an introduction? I mean, come on, it’s so iconic! And now it’s finally ICONX, too! Okay, sorry, sorry, sorry! I’m a dad, what do you expect? Dad jokes come with the package. Anyways, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to build this model, and amazingly enough, Fascinations sent me one […]

On top of building these models, I also enjoy trying to find fun ways of staging the models in creative ways. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. The fun I have doing this is actually what got me involved in the #MetalEarthFam on Instagram (and creating an Instagram account in the first place). So […]

Build: Droid Depot R2-D2

Build: Droid Depot R2-D2

Some might see the exclusive Droid Depot models (only available in Galaxy’s Edge locations at Disney Parks) as a blatant cash grab. And, if I’m honest, they probably are. But I still love them. And I had the joy of building R2-D2 thanks to my college roommate and long-time best friend, who bought a couple […]
