Grave Considerations: Butters



 

Here’s something a little bit different. Not really a review per say, not a thinkpiece-y entry that the things that usually fall under this category are, but something different. I’m going to review our beloved cat, Butters.

Grave Considerations: TFCon Chicago 2018




This past weekend was TFCon Chicago 2018, the American version of the wildly popular Canadian Transformers fan convention. Havingattended a few years ago, my wife and I went this year as well, and had a great couple of hours. Our first excursion to the convention was one made out of curiosity and marked my initial participation in the Third Party scene; this year, we both returned as grizzled veterans with vaster knowledge and more critical eyes. Let’s take a look back at the afternoon that was, shall we?

FansProject Intimidator: Car Crash




 It’s time to start looking at a new Third Party combiner team, one of two new ones before 2018 comes to a close, in the midst of Warbotron and Quantron and at the end of the Poseidon articles. But, you know, it’s Coffin style to dive in to a new thing when there are still old things in progress. So, let’s look at Car Crash, first of the FansProject Stunticons.

Tamashii Nations Movie Realization Series: Ronin Boba Fett


 
Super behind on these awesome figures, let’s take a look at one my wife got me for my birthday over the summer: Ronin Boba Fett. As was detailed several months ago with Samurai General Darth Vader, this line of roughly 8” figures takes Star Wars characters and reimagines them in the aesthetic of feudal Japan. Ronin were unattached samurai that traveled around seeking employment, which sounds pretty bounty hunterish to me.
