Nanoblock – Statue of Liberty   Leave a comment

I believe I bought this in 2015. I finally found time to build it. This took two hours.

Construction of Lady Liberty began in 1870 but was delayed many times due to fundraising issues. While the rest of the statue was still being designed, the head and the torch holding arm toured the world in an effort to gain support for the completion of the statue. After many fundraising efforts, including one by Joseph Pulizer, the publisher of the New York World paper, the statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886.

Today, a ferry service is provided to take tourists out to visit the statue, Provided it is not being renovated, tourists can stop by the museum housed in the pedestal and if they are feeling particularly athletic, climb the staircase all the way to the observatory in the crown.

I’m done.

Kubros – Hellboy   Leave a comment

There will be a Hellboy reboot coming out in 2018. I was hoping to see a sequel made after The Golden Army, but it’s not meant to be. Hopefully the new movie is pretty good.

I’m done.

Kubros – T-800 from The Terminator   Leave a comment

The Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 Series 800 Terminator was sent by Skynet in 2029 to Los Angeles in 1984 to kill Sarah Connor, the future mother of John Connor, the leader of the future human Resistance. It was the first of the Infiltrators sent back on assassination missions by Skynet, and is arguably the single most significant Terminator unit as it inadvertently “fathered” Skynet in its journey through time, similar to how Kyle Reese fathered John Connor in his.

Got this set on sale at Target.

I’m done.

Nanoblocks – Astronaut   Leave a comment

Two updates in a row, huh?

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Nanoblock set. My sister gave this to me as a gift from Christmas.

It’s an astronaut set with 120 pieces (not including extras).

I’m done.

Kubros – Evil Minion from Despicable Me 2 (Purple Minion)   Leave a comment

Evil Minions are Minions that are at the state of extreme mutation caused by the PX-41 serum entering their blood vessels.

The Evil Minions are for all intents and purposes, made to be indestructible: they are immune to weapons like flamethrowers, guns, axes, and undercover police cars; and are able to withstand the explosion from swallowing a bomb. They will devour and destroy anything that gets in their way, including the above-mentioned weapons. Evil Minions can also repair themselves, and are very dangerous.

The last of my Despicable Me themed Kubros set.

I’m done.
