I've recently gotten into the figure series known as World of Nintendo. They have plushes and other things, but the main line includes various mini figures. Some are quite rare, and hail from the more obscure Nintendo titles, such as Pikmin's Captain Olimar figure. I got lucky and picked him up at my local Wally World for 4 bucks. Other figures have been much harder to find, though. I've only found about 6 of the 2.5 inch figures at that store and all the others in my collection have come from online sources. But my favorite prized piece of my collection has got to be the ultra rare 4 inch Skyward Sword Link.
I found this sweet deal on ebay where this gal sold me both him and the 4" Wario for 25 dollars. They came new in the box (although link's box was a bit bent at the corner). I plan on keeping him in the box and maybe reselling him if I ever become destitute lol. Although I must admit, opening him up sure is tempting. But I'm waiting on my Figma Link to arrive so I can mess with him out of the box. He has more detail and accessories anyway. By the way, the cheapest place to get him that I've found is on HLJ. So if you're looking for Figma Link as well, check them out real quick!
Having scoured the Internet for a translated version of the legendary Gunpla scratch build manual has turned up pretty much nothing, unfortunately. I have found several sites with uploaded scans of the untranslated version, which I should probably be thankful for at least. Now if only I could get back to studying Japanese, maybe I could read some of it.
Scans found here.

As you can see, pla plates are used a lot as well as resin casting.
I remember watching Toonami when I was younger. It was my first major exposure to anime besides the Ghibli films at the time. If I had to decide what my two favorite shows were, they would probably be Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z. At first, I liked DBZ better because it was grittier, but now that I'm older, I think I appreciate the storytelling and character development of the first incarnation a bit better. Yes, it looks more like a "kid's" cartoon, but come on, there's still plenty of uncensored stuff in the uncut versions. Like did you know Master Roshi was a perv for Bulma Brief??
Also it explains the origins of the main characters pretty well, it alludes to Goku not being human and it references Krillen's training at a Buddhist monestary (despite being a martial artist who fights for a living). I never really liked how Krillin got the short end of the stick in DBZ. As Goku's best friend, I felt he always deserved better than to be killed off at the start of every season, you know?
Hey guys, it's Steve, and I just checked my mailbox to find my Metal Earth Fascinations Models have arrived. There was a nice buy one, get one half off sale on ebay last week, so I bought myself The Normandy from Mass Effect and a drumset. I'll add pics in an update. Ciao
It's been literally over 10 years since I've had an ICEE, so of course I piled 3 different flavors into my cup when I discovered the beverage section at a new truck stop near my house. The flavors I picked were: watermelon, mango, and Mountain Dew.
It only cost me 2 bucks and the cup design is really nice too!
