beam gun

Bad news: I popped my tire going over a curb

Good news: a grandpa mechanic helped me put on my spare

Best news: I made eye contact with this middle aged white suburban dad while effortlessly hefting my big ass tire into the trunk (I am a lot stronger than I look) and got to see his stunned/impressed expression at just the right time

Type 89 Kai 2 Particle Beam

Manufactured by Rokuoh-Sha’s occult investigation hardware branch between 1933 and 1944 to match the advances of the Thule-Gesellschaft in paranormal defense prior to World War 2.
35mm 120MeV hydrogen ions beam.

People don’t often think about the occult front of WW2.

@dailymaareep…I made a crackship thingy

Pokémon: Mawoop (♀)

Mix of: Mareep/Ampharos + Wooper/Quagsire

Type: Electric/Water

Weakness: Water/Electric

Special Abilities: Hydroshock (made up lol)

Attacks: (some made up/guessed) Headbutt, Thunder/bolt, Splash, Bite, Paralyze, Tail Whip, Earthquake, Quick Attack, Bubble Beam, Scald, Water Gun, Discharge, Volt Switch, Slap :3

Details: Mawoop are extremely hard to breed and catch in the wild, since Electric and Water are opposing types. Instead of the toxic film that is created when a Wooper is on land, Mawoop secretes a similar thin layer of toxin that contains volts of paralyzing electricity, the stronger the Mawoop, the more volts. Inherited by Mareep, Mawoop wool (though not much) is extremely soft and can conduct electricity, as well as be able to act as insulation for houses. Mawoop get wider tails, similar body shape, and Water attacks from Woopers, but they also get the electric ball, the wool, the quadrupedalism, the coloring, and the Electric attacks from Mareep.

So that Advent Calendar, huh?

Mercifully, my obsessive fangirl phase is long since over, but I’ll be the first to admit that video made me a little squirmish regardless. At least we finally got confirmation on whether or not Dr. Sloth wears shoes underneath that robe.

He does, in fact, wear shoes.

PG Unicorn Gundam (Part 1 - Accessories)

After approximately 10 days of cutting, shaving plastic, painting and assembling, I’m finally done with my the Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam. For Part 1 of this review series, I’d like to present the accessories for the mobile suit. The base colour for the bazooka, beam magnum rifle and beam gatling guns were spray painted with Tamiya gunmetal, while selected areas were later, or separately coloured with Tamiya silver-leaf. Custom painting the bazooka muzzle with silver was the most time-consuming and challenging as I had to individually mask 20 of those holes after a coat of gunmetal before painting it silver. 

Despite being a PG kit, the weapons and shields are generally scaled-up versions of the MG kit with not that many individual or elaborate parts, which would otherwise make custom painting a lot easier.

“While AE (Anaheim Electronics) was involved in a wide variety of high-tech industries but its inextricably connected to companies known as the ‘Merchants of Death.’ This is not difficult to understand when their military-related products account for more than half of the company’s earnings.

In fact, the origin of the history between AE and MS can be traced back to quite ancient times. Long before Zeon’s MS R&D investment during war years, AE’s advanced development division had officially launched basic research.

A year after the outbreak of war, AE also started to accept the Earth Federal Army production of standard MS RGM-79. In addition, the company was responsible for MS carrying beam guns with weapons production.

Among them, the largest is MS-related products, and it has been in the MS sector for more than 70 years. For a long time it has monopolized the MS development and production rights for Earth Federation Army.”

While musing (again) about Donna as a playable character I suddenly thought of how cool it’d be to have skins you can unlock for Jelly like you can with the vehicles

(One’s an Okami reference and one’s a Pacific Rim reference because if Gearbox is allowed to make 475675 references to shit with canon character skins/heads then goddammit I’ll do it with my self-indulgent fan characters)
