R-Style Gurren Lagann Nia Figure Review

 Hello and Welcome to my Review of the R-Style Gurren Lagann Nia Figure
While on my latest trip to the comic shop (last time I went there I got the Toyami Kakahsi figure) I looked around the store but nothing really jumped out at me...until I looked over at the Trading Figures (not exactly sure that's what they're called) Section, and low and behold there I saw one lonely Gurren Lagann R-Style box.

WIP Weekends! Lego & Minimates Edition

 Welcome to WIP (Work In Progress) Weekends!
 This time featuring my Lego & Minimates WIPs.
Lego and Minimates Together

I've been experimenting with how to make the stickers the right size for the Minimates and I think after a little playing around with my Lego sticker templates, I've gotten the size and pixels down. Though I've only printed them on regular paper because I don't want to waste sticker paper and I'm kinda low on ink. Started to mess around with Sharpies and they are really good for painting on details. Been sculpting a little too.

I'm so Fast that I'm Fasting

Hi There,

Some of ya might know that I'm a Christian (of the Catholic denomination) and because of that starting today is the season of Lent.
Basically back when Jesus was here, He went into the wilderness for 40 days and nights without food or water. While there the devil (being a jerk that he is) tried to tempt Jesus during that time.
Now as for what us Catholics do is sacrifice something that we really like during the next 40 days.
Like for example: Sweets,TV, and other stuff.

Well for what I'm fasting (sacrificing) this Lent is using my XBox.
I gotta admit, the idea of doing it at first was kinda depressing because it's something I like to do to unwind and most of my friends are on there so I'm gonna miss playing with them.
But that is the whole point of Lent though.
 Because I gotta show God that I love Him more then playing on my XBox.
Also I guess it'll be a test of will power.
 I'm gonna try my best with God's help.

So is there anyone else out there that might be fasting from something too?
Well even of you are or not, I'd to hear your thoughts too. ^_^

Minimate Custom Monday!

Hi there,

Here are my first official custom painted Minimate creations!
First up is one that took me about 5 or 6 years to finally get to finish.
Dr. Doom 2099! (Good thing it didn't take me "that" long)

I thought I'd make a villain for my lone Spiderman 2099 to fight.
 In the future I'll probably revisit this one to do some touch up work and stuff since it was my first minimate I'd ever painted.
He's pretty much a straight up repaint of the regular Dr. Doom Minimate with Silver Surfer's chest block.

Next up is my latest custom paint that I recently started and finished.
It's Batman's cold hearted (literally) villain: Mr. Freeze
Who freezes anyone who get's in his way!

His look is reminiscent of  his movie appearance from back when I was a kid in the 90's.
When he was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger...
Not why since I haven't seen the movie since it came out long ago when and my friend were kids.
Maybe it's nostalgia?
But regardless, I wanted Mr. Freeze to use the whole clear minimate body yet I wanted him to look like he was icy or something like that with an armored suit. So that's when I decided to go with a "movie inspired" look.
Kinda reminds me of a Mr. Freeze action figure I had.

Anyway, Hope you all like my Minimate custom creations
and be sure to
"Read More" to see how they looked before they were customized and a blogspot exclusive preview to two other custom WIPs (Work In Progress) that are coming soon.

Toynami Kakashi Action Figure Review

Hello There and Welcome to my review of Toynami's Naruto Shippuden
Kakashi 4 inch (though it's really 5 inches) Action Figure.
It had been a month or so since I'd gone to my local comic shop and I was looking around the store noticing that some of the things I wanted were already gone, but then I saw a rack of these 4inch Naruto Shippuden Figures hanging up and they caught my eye. Especially Kakashi.
Seeing them was very surprising because I never heard about these coming out (I keep up with this kinda stuff) and I never saw the pictures of them either. So when I saw Naruto, Itachi, and Kakashi action figures in front of me I was like: Whoa....
But I was also leery about buying any of these because I was afraid that the quality might be poor and for the price (I'll get to that in a bit) I really didn't want to buy something that was going to fall apart or something.
