The Hardest Choices Require the Strongest Wills

It’s been almost a year since the 1st decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ended. While many of us keen fans of the genre still waiting for the upcoming Marvel Super Heroes movies that will helm the next, one can not help but to relive the wonderful memories of those iconic moments and colourful characters such as the Invincible Iron Man, as well as the nigh-invulnerable Titan Thanos…

While wanting to collect something out from the MCU in the form of LEGO sets, I’ve been on the fence for quite some while due to many of such sets were designed to be more suitable as play sets instead of actual collector’s item, unlike the more display-friendly LEGO Star Wars sets.

However, an impulse purchase during my visit to my local Toys ‘R’ Us changed that: while window shopping last weekend, I stumbled upon a couple of the gems right at the LEGO aisle, instinctively picked them up from the display shelf and headed towards the cashier.

I ignored my destiny once, I cannot do that again. I am sorry, my wallet little one.

And here we are, a couple of Marvel Avengers LEGO sets in my possession: 76140 Iron Man Mech and 76141 Thanos Mech.

These sets, while based upon the titular characters from the MCU, are not actually canon to the story itself, as there are no mech suits for the hero (Although the Hulk Buster can be considered as one, this mech suit is definitely not Hulk Buster) and the villain of the movie. ^^;

Delayed Season of Another Chaldean Love

It’s that time of the year again! Chaldea is in a state of emergency once more as the female Servants gathered around the canteen block in hopes to borrow the kitchen for their chocolate production, much to the dismay of a certain red-clothed chef.

While trying to come up with a high-quality recipe for mass production together with several other Servants, Lady Murasaki together with the Master accidentally transported ray-shifted to yet another interesting situation, to no one’s surprise…

Along came the new Valentine’s Servant for the year, a super genki and bubbly Gal with a unique penchant for uplifting the craziness factor of an already weird and somewhat fun event.
