Has Star Wars Ruined Star Wars For Me?

I had tweeted a reply to the Ginger Prince regarding Star Wars: The Force Awakens the other day. And I realized a couple of things. (If you don’t follow him, @TGP73 is a great gentleman fan of the Star Wars world and a HUGE Admiral Ackbar Fan.) The first thing I realized was I’m just […]

Engineernerd Builds a Gundam Kit Part 2

So my Gunpla kit arrived from Amazon fairly quickly. Oddly, the outside of the box was not shrink wrapped. Everything inside was in a a couple of plastic bags and looked intact. The instructions were at the bottom of the box. I was immediately struck with the number of parts. And wondered what I had […]

Wasp (Marvel Universe Infinite Series)

I am not exactly sure how much is coincidence and how much is actual planning when I see Hasbro producing figures for second-tier characters way in advance of they becoming relevant due to a mention or an appearance in any of the Marvel movies.

Engineernerd Builds a Gundam Kit Part 1

This is a new experience for me. So I thought I would take you guys along on the journey. I think calling these model kits is a bit of a misnomer. A model kit to me is something static. Gundam kits, I’m learning are essential DIY action figures. First, I had to pick a scale […]

Stormtrooper (Black Series, 1/18 scale)

  Even if you only bought one of each figure released in the Hasbro Star Wars lines, chances are you already have a pretty sizeable number of plain Stormtroopers in your collection.   And still, when Hasbro announced that they would add yet another of these troopers to the first few waves of the 1/18 […]

Gundam Build Fighters

  Okay, I’ll probably loose some geek cred for this one, but I’m not a huge anime fan. I will even say that at one time I didn’t realize there was difference between the Gundam and Macross worlds. For years, I never delved into either properly. When I have tried an anime here and there […]
