#487894 Mission: Impossible - Fallout/Cruise Missile Appreciation Thread

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 04 September 2018 - 09:16 PM

I recently finished binging the entire series again myself, and I agree with most of your conclusions (including Jar Jar Abrams ruining franchises, but unironically; I can't forgive him for Star Wars :P). I suppose I have to agree that MI1 is pretty significantly better than MI2, even though I tend to prefer more action-heavy movies (I once heard that it was a directorial decision to have as few guns fired in MI1 as possible - there's only like 1 gunshot in the whole movie!), and I still don't like that all but one member of both of Ethan's teams survives and doesn't turn traitor. They even named Jon Voight's character after the main protagonist of the original television series and made him turn traitor! That's kind of a low blow to fans of the TV show who might have watched it...

 

Then again, I have to question the taste of any fans of the TV show. Ever watched it, Ocelot? There's a local TV channel where I live that only shows really old shows for old people to watch (you can tell the target audience by the commercials, which are all of the "help I've fallen and I can't get up!" variety). They show Mission Impossible on there sometimes, and IT IS TERRIBLE. I've tried watching a few episodes, usually when they have Leonard Nimoy or someone in them, but MY GOD. It is, hands down, the most boring television program you will ever see. One time I even tried to sit through a three-part episode, waiting for something - anything - interesting to happen, and I've never felt time slow to such a crawl before or since.

 

So basically what I'm saying is don't watch the TV show. There's a reason the only thing anyone remembers about it is the theme music.

That's great! :lol:

 

I'm a couple of days late with this one, but I didn't want to wait until next week. Enjoy!

#487877 Minifig Showcase!

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 26 August 2018 - 08:30 PM

Well. I think I know which BrickWarriors items I might be adding to my shop next. Since I'll probably buy hundreds of those just for my own use, I might as well sell them too. :lol:

 

I don't really care for the Elven chest armor though. Elven armor isn't supposed to be so big and bulky. I think it works better as just a decal, myself.

Ohohoh, we've got a demonkin fight on our hands, ladies and gentlemen.  Place yer bets!  I've got three denarii on Kye, our favorite spiky boi. (No matter how adorably terrified he is of Hanan.  Do you happen to have a full frame, without text, of his face there, Scorp?  Definitely meme-worthy.)

 

Ask, and ye shall receive.

#487850 Elemental Contest #3: EARTH

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 15 August 2018 - 07:28 AM

And now we have five entries!

 

Maybe that's enough to do the poll, after all? What do you guys think? I would post it in several different places (Twitter, Facebook, here, etc.) and then add up the results.

 

So, if you're to be the judge of all the entries, does that mean I'll get some feedback for my diorama? Because I'd really like that?

 

Sure, I can give feedback. :) I really liked your dio, especially the minifigs! Quite a variety, and I always enjoy seeing my stickers put to use. I also really liked the detailed story behind each photo, in the description. The blue & red factions reminded me of Xarkon and Victory. I understand you had trouble working 'earth' into the design, and that's fine. The biggest improvement I would suggest would be tying the whole thing together with a solid base, like a baseplate.

#487827 Review: BrickFair Virginia 2018 - Featuring Cool Swag!

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 07 August 2018 - 04:10 PM

Glad I managed to make it, even if it was only for the last 2 hours or less! lol. I can't believe I forgot to put on my Saber-Scorpion shirt! D'oh! :brickwall:

Thanks for the 'fig, and hope you enjoy yours too! Will ship out the rest of your package soon.

 

 

Oh man, I didn't even see those BrickWarriors Gondor items! Guess I should have looked more closely. Also, is that Paladin sword based on Jaime Lannister's from Game of Thrones? I was just working on a minifig of him and it looks very similar. Weird coincidence. I would have preferred an accurate version of Anduril, myself, but oh well. :P

 

Will try to post some of my own photos later.




#487826 What Are You Currently Playing?

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 07 August 2018 - 10:54 AM

So I'm still wasting my time in World of Warcraft. :P
 
They're tearing up Azeroth again! You'd think that would hardly be possible, since it's been a total wreck ever since Cataclysm, but at the ending of Legion, we finally overthrew Sargeras (the Satan of Warcraft lore, leader of the Burning Legion demons) and as a parting gift he stabbed the planet Azeroth with his sword. You can visit his sword in-game. It's sticking out of Silithus, and it's possibly the biggest structure in the game's history. You can see that thing from halfway across Kalimdor if you have your draw distance maxed! It's massive.
 
The wound it created in Azeroth is causing a volatile mineral called Azerite to erupt from the ground everywhere, and the Horde and Alliance are back at war to fight over this new MacGuffin. The Battle for Azeroth prequel events are all available in the game right now. The Horde burns down Teldrassil (Darnassus, the Night Elf home city), and the Alliance takes out Lordaeron (Undercity, the Forsaken Undead home city), which Sylvanas destroys as she's leaving. Sylvanas has gone full Garrosh now and no longer has any interesting character depth - she's just pure evil to the core. Which sucks, but I guess Blizzard has forgotten how to write villains who aren't totally 1-dimensional. Still, most other parts of the story are pretty awesome. All of the Alliance leaders really get to shine, especially Jaina, who is now Elsa from Frozen if after her parents died at sea she got PISSED. There are lots of cool new cinematics, plus the in-game cutscenes.

The pre-BFA events (and rewards, including 2 unique mounts) are only available until the 14th, when the expansion officially launches.


#487818 Brickfair Virginia 2018: A Day at the Arena

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 04 August 2018 - 07:14 PM

Hope some of you guys are still gonna be there tomorrow. :P I was hoping to drive up there today, but it didn't work out, so I might try again tomorrow for Sunday. If I can get there early enough for it to be worth it...




#487811 Mission: Impossible - Fallout/Cruise Missile Appreciation Thread

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 29 July 2018 - 08:18 PM

Just saw Mission Impossible: Fallout a couple days ago. Holy crap, it's so good. I really thought that Rogue Nation might be the last time I would say "best one yet", but... no, this is once again the best one yet. I do not know what dark magic enables these movies to keep getting better and better when most film series tend to do the opposite, but I hope they keep it up. Go watch it, right now. Unless you haven't seen all the other M:I movies yet, in which case you should catch up on them first, since this one has lots of continuity and callbacks to the others, particularly 3, 4, and 5.
