When This Baby Hits 88 Miles Per Hour…

After my last review of the LEGO Star Wars set, I thought my renewed LEGO collecting passion will die down eventually since there aren’t anything else that catches my eyes. Oh boy I was quite on the wrong channel of thinking. =w=

Not long after my last acquisition of the LEGO Jedi Interceptor set, my favourite local games/collector items distributor updated their stock with many LEGO sets. Amongst them is this familiar looking hover vehicle from my childhood memories. :3

Not long after my last acquisition of the LEGO Jedi Interceptor set, my favourite local games/collector items distributor updated their stock with many LEGO sets. Amongst them is this familiar looking hover vehicle from my childhood memories. :3

Before my mind realised what was going on, my itchy fingers already added the set into cart and checked it out onto an express way to my den a few days later.  

Oh well, back to the brick assembly!

Crying foul over the intense heat of the hot summer days, I’ve finally succumbed to Tama-chan’s demands and got her a new Kimono, in part as preparation for the upcoming Bon Odori visit next Moon…

Intercepting the TIE of the Jedi

Bricks and studs assembly going on a roll!

As mentioned last time, I have acquired yet another LEGO Star Wars set, just shortly after I got the 75030 Microfighters Millennium Falcon

First seen during the last of the Prequel movies (Episode III: Revenge of the Sith), the Eta-2 Actis-Class Light Interceptor (Most commonly known as the Jedi Interceptor due to its heavy use by the Jedi Generals throughout the end days of the Clone Wars) is a Starfighter purposely designed to bridge the gap between the Prequel Trilogy and Original Trilogy. :3

It’s the Ship That Made the Kessel Run in Less Than 12 Parsecs!

It’s only been little time since my reintroduction back into the world of bricks and studs, and I’ve already landed with another set, even though it’s definitely smaller in scale this time…

Created to complement its paid iOS/Android app (Or is it the other way around?), the LEGO Star Wars Microfighters is a classic STG game where you control starships in the Star Wars universe like the X-Wing, TIE Interceptor, Clone Turbo Tank, Droid AAT, Star Destroyer and of course the Milennium Falcon to lead them to victory whilst avoiding intense enemy fire on your mobile phone, as per good old STG tradition. :3c

タマちゃんの礼装 Ver. 2.22: You Can (Not) Stop Improve

As mentioned during my latest post on Tama-chan’s ever-expanding improvements, aside from her 蒼色の呪術服, her new outfit from Fate/Extra CCC also had undergone a complete overhaul, courtesy of my seamstress. 

Version 1.0 of the CCC outfit 漆黒の魔術服 (Which you can see in full during AFA12) was commissioned some time before the release of the original PSP game itself, of which only the front side of the concept art for the outfit was shown at the time.

Due to the lack of official arts on the outfit’s back view during the time, my seamstress had to improvise and made the outfit as she sees fit, which was of course far from accurate as I found out later after the release of the game. 

Striving to make Tama-chan as close to her original as possible, a remake was commissioned alongside the aforementioned default reisou.
