At the end of a dead end road and the end of a long and winding overgrown driveway I find myself at the abandoned Mile of Memories Mansion, in the company of my new friends FeralFox and Kida. On a vast expansive lakefront property complete with mansion… Continua a leggere
Being a media sort of guy I really enjoyed this piece on layouts gone wrong. Yikes. Gotta feel for the people involved here!

Berserk (Japanese: ベルセルク) is a manga series written and illustrated by Kentaro Miura. Set in a medieval Europe-inspired fantasy world, the story centers on the characters of Guts, an orphaned mercenary, and Griffith, the leader of a mercenary band called the Band of the Hawk. Themes of isolation, camaraderie, and the question of whether humanity is fundamentally good or evil pervade the story, as it explores both the best and worst of human nature. Both the manga and anime are noted for their heavy violence.
Guts (ガッツ Gattsu) is a wandering warrior and former Raid Leader of the renowned mercenary unit known as the “Band of the Hawk” (鷹の団 Taka no Dan), who hunts demonic creatures called Apostles, humans who have made a deal with a group of archdemons known as “The God Hand” that entails sacrificing whoever or whatever is closest to them in exchange for incredible supernatural power. Guts himself bears a Brand of Sacrifice from this very ritual; he is one of the only people to have ever survived it, but still has demons ceaselessly drawn to him wherever he goes, with the Brand becoming more painful and bloody the closer and more powerful his adversaries are.
This is the soon-to-be-released R.E.D. MARK x INFLAMES 1/6th SWORD In THE WIND 12-inch figure which does bear a strong resemblance to Guts from Berserk. Medicom Toy has also released a Guts Band of the Hawk figure – you can see the preview pictures posted on my toy blog HERE. Dragon Models Limited (DML) had also released a 1/6th scale Berserk Guts Black Swordsman 12-inch figure way back in 2003 as a Japan exclusive. You can check out the review posted HERE and HERE.
This week, I attempted to make my first oil and wax polish. I tried to follow other tutorials for this process from memory, and found that some tips did not work for this application. It was fun to go through hand crafting my own wax finish… Continua a leggere
“Vengeance will be mine!”
Hanzo Hasashi (波佐志半藏), now known as Scorpion (全蠍人, “Full Scorpion Man”), is a resurrected ninja in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He is one of the very few original characters, debuting in the first Mortal Kombat arcade game. He holds the distinction, along with Raiden and Sub-Zero (in one form or another), of appearing in every generation of Mortal Kombat games as a playable character.
Scorpion is a hell-spawned spectre, inexorably seeking vengeance against those responsible for the destruction of his clan and the death of his own family. Scorpion appears human when masked, though this is merely an illusion. Only his skull remains when in his true form, sometimes ablaze. Scorpion’s most popular and recognized skill is his famous spear attack, which is used to draw an opponent toward him. This attack will also stun the opponent for a short amount of time.
