We tried to get Lego to put Char's Zaku


As a good or a bad guy mech? Unless you meant the general shape/look, I'm guessing "we can't have two red robos because confusion" could've been a factor.

It would have been fine. There was a red and white one in year 2, but no red ones.

Anyway they went in a different direction and did like a jungle thing instead. But our knockoff zaku would have been pretty cool.

My modem broke today.
It was probably just the power converter box on the cord.
It was a comcast rental so I returned it, I suppose its now a $1200 modem, it was at least 10 years old.
I asked the woman at the counter if I could just buy a new modem, she said no.

So I declined their generous offer for a new rental.
I went to BestBuy and got one for $50.

Did they not make it because of copyright issues? Honestly, I'm kind of relieved learning that because I get a feeling that it would not be too great as an official set.

For whatever reason the Mega Bloks Construx Red Ranger fig is RT. The swords alright for an edge lord if he doesn't mind using knock-offs I guess.

Just as a plain sword it does look fine but there might be some folks around that wished an in scale remould of the original Red Ranger/TyrannoRanger sword for that figure. But hey, it fits a Lego minifig hand just fine so I can't complain.

Nice, went there as part of my end of the year school trip to Ottawa last year.  Hope you enjoyed!  The cafeteria floor was pretty snazzy, wasn't it?

Finally scanned & uploaded all of my Loot from CanGames 2017.  My purchases were heavy on the nostalgia (& a bit of silliness).

My biggest single purchase, a supplement for Epic, the only GW game I've ever actually played:

Because Steve Jackson didn't actually have the rights to one his first game designs, Melee, he re-created it as a GURPS supplement (and GURPS was largely based on Melee to begin with):

Steve Jackson's Man to Man by Bryan Rombough, on Flickr

Autoduel, the GURPS version of the Car Wars setting.  I used to play Car Wars a lot with my friends in the mid-80's.  Or rather, we tried to play, but the rules were far too complex.  Still love the concept though:

Justifiers RPG, the late 80's/early 90's game where you play the genetically-engineered human/animal hybrid agents of an evil corporation in a cyberpunk-ish/space opera-ish setting:

From the same publisher, the RPG & wargame books for Domination, a near-future alien invasion setting:

And here's the silly stuff, a bunch of old magazines & adventures bought for a podcast that does humorous reviews of silly rpgs & supplements.

Red Giant: the fantasy magazine for intelligent gamers, with enormous ghoulies!  This was Folio Works’ (publishers of Fantasy Warlord) answer to White Dwarf magazine (get it?):

Citadel of Fire, a Judges Guild D&D adventure.  Like watching the Heavy Metal movie from '81, this is probably best experienced while under the influence:

Desert Sun, an adventure for the Delta Force RPG.  Even for something made in the 80's, it's so 80's it hurts:
