More About those Droids

More About those Droids

Piececool finally dropped some more information, and more photos, on the Star Wars droid models. They are scheduled for release on the 13th of August, so I would expect to see them showing up on AliExpress and other online stores shortly after that. But the part I was most interested in was the additional photos, […]

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 […]

Coming Soon: Piececool Droids!

Coming Soon: Piececool Droids!

So, sometime over the weekend, Piececool dropped these new models on their page. And I had a bit of a busy weekend, so I completely failed to post anything about it. I gotta say, I’m a bit excited about these models, especially K2-SO and C-3PO, since we haven’t had ICONX scale versions of these. R2-D2 […]

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 […]

Monster Truck Sneak Peek!

Monster Truck Sneak Peek!

Well, the July Newsletter just dropped, and it looks like we are getting another Monster Truck in the future. If I knew anything about Monster Trucks, I might be able to identify this one. But sadly, I’ve never had the joy of actually going to a Monster Truck Rally. Seriously, I’d love to. Just haven’t. […]

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 […]

Build: Liberty Bell

Build: Liberty Bell

I didn’t intend for this build to be timely. In fact, it wasn’t until I told my wife what I was building, and she said something about it, that I realized the connection. And, to be honest, it’s kinda hard to feel patriotic right now. Our country is hurting, our people are divided and full […]
