Jaws 3d Movie Poster

December 25, 2009

I can just hear the terrifying two note melody as I see this. Alex Schranz made this impressive model based off of McFarlane Toys’ version.

It took me a moment to figure out what the large white teeth were at first, but then I realized it was multiples of Patrick’s head. Apparently the shark had a light snack of starfish before going after the main course. πŸ˜‰

San Diego Comic Con — Recap Part 1

July 27, 2009

Okay, so I was planning on posting every night what happened each day. As you can see, that didn’t happen. With an average of 3 hours of sleep each night before I stumbled out of bed each morning at 4:30 am to get decent parking I was way too tired to get any posting done during the Comic Con.

There was a lot that happened at the LEGO booth this year. They had 7 exclusives that they were selling. They handed out a poster, a keychain and a Holo-Brick Archives collectable brick.

For the first time, LEGO had a building event. I along with Mark, a Master Model Builder, ran the 2 day event.

It was pretty cool. This building event was different than previous ones that I have done. This was a “mystery build.” Each person got a bag with a 6×6 white plate and 1×1 plates that formed a mosaic. It was like a build-by-number mosaic. As they built their squares, Mark and I put them up on the board.

I was a little nervous to be doing a building event at Comic Con because of how crazy it gets, but it ended up working out great! We also built a giant Bionicle mask that lights up. I’ll add a picture of that soon.


Also for the first time LEGO hosted a celebrity signing. Michael Dorn of Star Trek fame signed posters for the new Bionicle movie. He is the voice of Mata Nui. He was very nice when I got to meet him.


I have lots more to say, but I’ll add that to the next post. πŸ˜‰
