Ikir

6

Okoto Demidragon, fusion of Ikir, Terak and Melum and Okoto Jungle Crawler, fusion of Akida, Uxar and Ketar.

Been playing around with the Uniter sets. The creatures were fun to combine and their part selection made it a good challenge to think outside the box.

PS. I just realised the golden masked creatures have feet while the silver masked ones don’t. Coincidence?

Journey to FUN!

It’s here! It’s been over 6 years since any Bionicle animation longer than 3 minutes has come out, and there’s clearly been a significant budget increase to this G2 reboot’s episode-style format. We’ve got 3D animated toa and villagers alike, along with a lively crew of creatures and a villain who manages to simultaneously be Starscream and Megatron (sorry, I had to, but the link is a StamperTV comedy sketch that is as relevant as it is not safe for work).

If you’ve played or seen screenshots from the Mask of Control mobile game, you know basically where the overarching story is headed. The two and a half episodes we have are the full tread of the winter wave, and end on a “cliffhanger” for summer that’s of course entirely blown out of the water by leaks. As usual though, it’s the moments in between that really shine and liven things up. Journey to One is definitely many things at once, but above all it succeeds at being fun!

Just don’t let the ramblings of this over-devoted fanboy be your first experiences with this show; it’s got tons of charm that can only be expressed by a visual medium! Spoilers and such abound below, so Netflix binge excessively and then come back, won’t you?

We took photos in the park on our wedding day and they were so breathtaking that we promised we would come back every year and try to recreate them.

After dinner in the city we head over to the park, take some photos and say our vows to each other again.  It’s something that is more special every year….especially this year with the addition of the peanut.  Next year there will be another person in the photo that you can see…a tiny little person that will be the physical manifestation of our love and commitment to each other.  

Am I still beaming?  Probably…it’s not going to stop for a while…I have no control over it.

Pohatu - Uniter of Stone.

Featuring shoulders courtesy of @beardlydesigns and a color scheme that feels just a little bit more cohesive to me. The trans-lime was a nice touch but it too often seemed to clash with the dark orange for me personally. 

Also, a test for his Unity form. I don’t actually own Ketar but I will probably use the Ikir head anyway. Goes better with the gold mask.

I haven’t seen this before, but this was the Bionicle ad in the Lego Club magazine. I live in Canada if that makes any difference, not sure if the magazine is localized.

I like the blurbs on how Tahu “courts” Ikir, and how he “let’s him through his defenses.”

Our annual trip to Awesomeland (aka. Mercer, Maine) went extremely well…the heat was down and we did a lot of walking, talking, sitting, eating and general all-around merriment.

I snagged this little ditty of a shot when ikir wasn’t looking.  

It is quite possibly my favorite photo of her thus far in pregnancy.  I know it sounds typical, but I find her to be overwhelmingly gorgeous right now…she glows on a daily basis and it’s so darn sexy to me to see her all mom’d out with her bump.  She’s going to be an outstanding mother and I have no doubt the lilfeets will be showered with love and kisses from his mom.
