Build: Venator-Class Star Destroyer

Build: Venator-Class Star Destroyer

Not too long ago, I received a gift from the magnanimous Brad of AnimateOrange. He decided he wanted to reward me for helping out with the giveaways that he did this summer. And even though I told him that he didn’t have to, he went ahead and sent me this Venator-Class Star Destroyer. We’d been […]

Build: Starscream and Soundwave

Build: Starscream and Soundwave

Rocking two more of the Legends Transformers this week. I don’t care what the haters say, I like the quirky Legends line, and these Transformers definitely up the game on complexity for the line. Starscream is rocking some big guns and wings, while Soundwave is kicking it with a giant cannon on one shoulder and… […]

Review Build: Duesenberg J

Review Build: Duesenberg J

Wow. Just wow. I know I’ve said this before, but they just don’t design cars like they used to. There’s an elegance and class that has faded away over the years. I suppose a large part of that is just that cars aren’t as much of a luxury as they used to be. I’m no […]

Build: Lighthouse Mod

Build: Lighthouse Mod

This model modification has been in the works for a very long time. I don’t know how long, but I know it was well before October of 2018 that I starting thinking about it. I know that because I went through several ideas before finally settling on one, and that last one I started executing […]

Narrated Build: Buckeye Butterfly

Narrated Build: Buckeye Butterfly

So, with my self-imposed limitations on build session durations, it seemed like a good idea to take another stab at a narrated build video of a beginner model. And, once again, it took me a lot longer than I expected. I’ve already built all the butterfly models, but decided to get another one and build […]

Mod: Buried AT-AT on Hoth

Mod: Buried AT-AT on Hoth

Sometimes, you can make the best of a bad situation if you just change your perspective a little. Like this mod, which was conceptually born as I went through and assessed the damages from a shelf full of Metal Earth models collapsing onto another shelf full of models, which subsequently fell down. I was able […]

Build: Sloat and Widener

Build: Sloat and Widener

Alright, so these two really seem fresh, right? At least as regards the Piececool Q Series. Sloat / Xiao Qiao (in the blue and purple dress) and Widener / Sun Shangxiang (in the red and gold dress) are the first female characters I’ve built (at least, as far as I can tell… I guess I’m […]

Build: Black Dragon

Build: Black Dragon

As promised, here is the reveal of the completed Black Dragon, by Piececool. I decided to continue my tradition of building a big dragon for my total build counts ending in 50. This here is my 350th build, which seems to have crunched up way too close to my 300th Metal Earth build. Guess I […]

Black Dragon, In Steps

Black Dragon, In Steps

So, life has thrown a curve ball at me. A little over a month ago, I did something (don’t really know what) that strained a muscle in my neck/shoulder. And, after about a month of just hoping it would work itself out, but then having it consistently re-tweaking itself, I went to the doctor. He […]
