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 […]

Build: The Kennedy Center

Build: The Kennedy Center

Completing the Kennedy Center model brings me closer to covering the last of the currently discontinued models. Metal Earth doesn’t have an easy way to find out which models have been discontinued (wouldn’t it be nice if they had an “archive” or “museum” section on their website), you just have to browse their list of […]

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 […]

Did you know that Metal Earth has a newsletter? Did you know that they have fairly regular creative photo challenges in the newsletter? Did you know that the winners get free models? Did you know that they started shipping contest prizes internationally? Did you know that you don’t actually have to be signed up for […]

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 […]

Ford Vehicles Confirmed

Ford Vehicles Confirmed

Metal Earth has added the six upcoming Ford Classic cars to the Coming Soon page, complete with updated product photos. Guess they were making room for them when they moved the ICONX Hogwarts Express, the Mars Insight Lander, and the silver Targaryen Sigil to “What’s New.” And to confirm what I said about the product […]

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 […]
