Pick of the Week, Nov 4/4

Okay, November draws to a close, and I'm late again. Phoo sticks.
So yeah... Thanksgiving was good, black friday was skipped entirely, and I'm in my last week of fall semester; shots all around. To check out two of my final projects, head over to I think you'll like what you see... If I ever actually update the comics...

Now, onto the Pick. This week we have WWII 101st Screaming Eagles by lance858a. While the 101st was a real unit, these characters are not: they are Duke, Hawk, and Flint from the joeverse. However, the costumes are very well done and historically accurate, and feature parts from multiple toy lines, as well as original sculpted parts. Add in the detailed paint job, and you have a trio of very good figures.

And as for the October Pick of the Month: the winner is Kamakura by kingphilbert. Congratulations, kingphilbert!

Pick of the Week, Nov 3/4

And this week's pick is... late. Again. But enough about my lack of time management skills. Today we welcome back an old Pick alumnus, and creator of the September pick, Mythic, with Updated/PoC Cobra Viper. For those of you who've been following the Picks, we had a Viper in the first month, but this one is a little different. Stylistically, this one is an almost straight carryover of design from the original costume. However, there are still some changes. Its sort of like the difference between Movie Spider-man and Comic Spider-man; it's the same, just... different. And of course its got a pimpin' paint job... So, congratulations a=once again to Mythic; keep up the good work! View the figure at:

Also, please remember to vote! Options explained in the last post. (And thanks to everyone who voted...)

Pick of the Week, Nov 2/4

A day late and a dollar short, but here's this weeks Pick: Quick Kick by daremo. I honestly don't know much about this character, but the recent figures of him have been... disappointing. This version, however, is quite groovy, and he really looks like a modern martial-arts commando. The parts and paint are good, and overall, I like it. Check it out at

As for last month's picks... Voting will happen this week. Seriously this time. I got caught up in my church's fast last week, and didn't have time to post it. As for other updates...

Pockett is still technically on hiatus, but, by the grace of God, I've set up a pimpin' new site for it! Head on over to NOW. Please do so on Safari or Opera however, as it currently looks weird on other browsers. Fixes will be coming.

And finally, career news... Last night our church played host to worship leader Kelanie Gloeckler, and I got to run the lyrics display. Not only that, but we keyed all the words, so I got to be a full-on technical director, with my brother on hand to physically push the switcher buttons. If you're in the Tulsa area, stop by Open Bible Fellowship and ask for the KG 11/13 DVD. It looks great!

And now... Hez out.

Pick of the Week, Nov 1/4

Mkay, another pick of the week! But first, the news.
- In the spirit of NaNoWriMo, E.H.U.D. is progressing.
-Pockett has updated, of a sort. The site itself has been updated, and a 'comic' appeared... saying that there would be no comic...
-Pick of the Month voting for October will begin next week.

And onto this week's pick!

This week, we have a battle damaged Cobra B.A.T. created by TTT, one of the moderators at Hisstank! There are actually three figures made, with the designations BD BAT 019, 020, and 021. The one shown in the image above is 020. All the figures are well done, but the spliced in terminator parts and the real wires really caused this one to stand out. Now, it may be hard to believe, but good battle damage is hard to do. TTT has pulled these off quire nicely, and, even though I generally don't like B.A.T.s, I really like these figures.
