The Beginning of Frogspace

For those of you who are confused by this recent "in joke," I'm here to dispell all confusion. :D
Frogspace started when I recieved a package of a few parts from Gladius (for my help with Next-Gen), which contained a lone dark bley frog. I thought to myself, since this is my only frog, I should give it a name! And so the first word that came to me was Cake. And so my frog became Cake. I also thought that since Cake was so special, he deserved a nice fancy chair. So I then proceded to build a chair (which would later become the chair of Trusty Navigator, since Cake was too small for it, and looked silly). While building the chair, I decided that Cake should be a captain, and thus, Frogspace was born.

The End. (although it is only the beginning!)

For more Frogspace, see the Flickr group.

(Oh, also check out the blog's new background :o)

Lightly Salted

Jerac socks it to us in the face with another microscale ship, the ST Vicious Destroyer, and this time it's taaan. Mmm tan. It looks like it could eat smaller ships alive. It's covered in tons of cool little details, and although the greebs are in different colors, Jerac manages to pull it all together quite nicely.

This also reminds me. For anyone that has used custom stickers before, what's the best/your favorite kind of sticker paper to use? Do you have to do anything special to the print settings? I'm curious to try this myself.

Something else relatively new, Brent Skadan builds once more! He escapes from his mini-darkage with his new Moon Bat, a sleeker, more awesome version of his previous Flying Mouse. My favorite part on this one is the airbrakes, which are connected in a unique fashion. Brent, I am once again impressed by your unholy amount of tiles.

And I built something too! Gasp. The Naavi is an old luxury liner that was stolen by pirates/outlaws and refitted with weapons... lots and lots of them. (Actually this is just my excuse to put weapons on it. >.>)

Anyway, yeah.

I Has a Blog

Yes, that's right folks. Another lego blog. :P
(Sorry Moyblik. I wanted to have my own place to do stuff, so I made my own. Can we steel be freends? D:)

Anyway. By this time I'm sure you know that Brickshelf is back up, offering "Featured Accounts" for $5 a month (that's $60 for one year). Now, I'm sure you're thinking that's a pretty steep price to pay, but wait! You get amazing features such as no ads and greater visibility (whatever that means).

I really am glad that Brickshelf is back from the dead, and I will continue to host my pictures there, especially since I always had backups of mine, so if it were to go down again for reals I would be okay. However, I can't say I trust it anymore. Also, there is no way that I'm going to pay $60 bucks a year for such small benifits. Compare it to Flickr. For just $25 a year on Flickr, you get tons of added stuff, such as an unlimited number of photos and sets, being able to create up to 60 groups, larger "all sizes" images... and I know there's more than that. See for yourself.

Now I do believe it is time for some laygoes.

Recently, there have been quite a few awesome post-apocalyptic dioramas. The first one, by CarterBaldwin, is my favorite of them. (Although it lacks the funny factor of Kcaster's) It's a little rough on the base, but the gun is very well built, and no post-apocalyptic diorama is complete without a broken telephone pole.

The next two dios are from Kcaster, both depicting scenes from post-apocalyptic Britain. I love both of them, and the second one would be especially cool once the technical golf cart is added. No matter what the conditions, you can't stop a good British man from having his tea, or from playing a good game of golf. ;)

And to end my first post, a shameless plug. This is my S-R/LA "Basilisk" Helicopter. I know it's a little rough, but I'm happy with it. And I'm glad to be reasured by wuntztwice that it's chances of getting off the ground are greater than I thought.
