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 […]

Log Truck and Trailer

Log Truck and Trailer

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 […]

Review Build: …And Trailer

Review Build: …And Trailer

Concluding the build of the ICONX Western Star 4900 Log Truck and Trailer, I present to you… the Trailer (and logs)! Now, you can build this puppy without the Trailer, from the Metal Earth classic-scale line, but the Trailer really completes the picture, so I suggest you go for the ICONX version. And you don’t […]

Review Build: Log Truck…

Review Build: Log Truck…

It’s been a while since I built an ICONX, so I thought it was about time. And so I’ve started on the ICONX Western Star 4900 Log Truck and Trailer, another model that Fascinations has been kind enough to send me to review. This model has been quite a detailed and intricate build, taking roughly […]

Build: Donald Duck

Build: Donald Duck

This fun, quirky, and blocky rendering of Donald Duck is one of those really hard-to-get Disney Parks exclusives that is only available out of the Disneyland in Shanghai, China. I am humbled and honored to be able to build this model, because it was sent to me by a fellow builder, Instagram’s @tomz971. Not only […]

Build: Drum Set

Build: Drum Set

I may have had a little too much fun with the inclusion of Chewie here. I mean, I do try to include one photo with him in every post, as a way for people to get a sense of the size of the models (it took me a while to figure out an internationally appropriate […]

Build: Sundial Bridge

Build: Sundial Bridge

I don’t know about you, but it’s nice to sit down with a quick and easy build every once in a while. Unfortunately, I got myself into a pickle in that regards by not having any of those, until this Sundial Bridge model came in the mail this last weekend. I picked up this little […]
