What Models Do You Want?

What Models Do You Want?

From time to time, I’ve seen Fascinations / Metal Earth ask on their various social medias for suggestions for models, and I’ve seen a lot of good ideas. But I wonder how much interest there is in each idea / genre. So I thought that – seeing as I now have a blog – I […]

Update on Some Exclusives

Update on Some Exclusives

Thanks to the avid internet sleuthing of several builders, I have a few updates on how to get your hands on some exclusives that you may not know about. First off, via reddit’s Drummer7416, who got it via interface2x, we have a link to pre-order the Books-A-Million exclusive Hogwarts Express (in color, with tracks)! Unfortunately, […]

Hobbytown Exclusives In-Store Now!

Hobbytown Exclusives In-Store Now!

It turns out that where I thought that the Hobbytown in Little Rock was closed at some point, it actually was just relocated, and Google Maps didn’t update their data. So, seeing as I was halfway there for another errand today, I decided to drop by and confirm a juicy rumor I’d heard… namely that […]

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 […]

Piececool Adds Some Not-Transformers Models

Piececool Adds Some Not-Transformers Models

Four new models have been added to Piececool’s website, marked with a pre-sale date of 10/28. Once again, the models have been bundled together, almost as if a set. Strangely, this set includes 3 mythical warriors in ancient-Chinese style armor that most definitely do not [they do] resemble Transformers characters. And the Southern Gate. You […]

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 […]

58 Models Added to Retiring Status

58 Models Added to Retiring Status

It is with sadness that I report that Metal Earth has chosen to start retiring a whole heap of models, the bulk of which is almost the entire line of Legends models. Now, I know there’s quite a few of you builders out there who think of the Legends line as a bit of a […]

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. […]
