This last Thursday was my birthday. Got two of the Arctic Batman vs Mr Freeze sets and a badass computer.

Got my huge brickforge order today, re-fitted a spearman squad to be macemen with the Sorcerer's staff, and got 50 trans-red commander's crests for 50 cents, to be used as creative blood.

I know I've been out of the loop, but doesn't Mike work FOR The Lego Company?
Ergo anything he does to promote the sale of Lego, aftermarket or otherwise, line his pockets?

Alright, on to loot...

Picked up #75000 a while back:
Image

The Hovercar is pretty good, with working ramp doors, blaster storage, a nice missile gimmick, and enough seating space for both Troopers.
The Droideka's are alright, much closer to scale than their previous incarnations, but a bit lacking in the ARTICULATION department...

Also got that Halo 4 Cryopod MegaBlocks set just for the Holo Cortana, because I needed one for my plans for a Web Series...

Yesterday I went with my mother to Toys'r'Us to pick out some Birthday Presents for my youngest Nephew and a few things for his siblings.
His elder brother is the one I taught Brikwars to, and I picked out the #75022 Mandalorian Speeder for him since he likes cool figs.
Since I also had a Birthday last month, my mom asked me if there was anything that I wanted...

While I've been hoping to lure her into making a BrickLink purchase so I can start adding some MOCs to Briktoid Automata, I unfortunatly had my eyes glued on this:
Image

The #70707 CLS-89 Eradicator Mech, because it's a heavily armed Mecha that comes with probably THE best Galaxy Squad Robot and a handful of flickfire missiles!
Plus it comes with two brickbuilt Bugs as enemies, instead of Mansquitoes...

I'm thinking I might reskin the Tairin Federation into mash up of ADU suits and helmets with Galaxy heads while the Eradicator takes the place of the Athena mech MOC.
The Jet Cockpit would also probably used for the eventual Troop Transport, while the Mecha Hardsuit hangs from underneath the cargo bay.

The Bugs are going to be used as the basis for a new Pseudo-Arachnid Empire, since they would make great bodies for Workers and the pod cocoons are perfect for their Transformative ability.

Speaking of the Lego Company...
DAMN YOU MIKE!
You had the design team snoop around here for ideas, didn't you?!
I don't think it's a coincidence that the joint Natalya used on her Spider Tank ended up in the waist of the Eradicator!
And the #70701 Swarm Interceptor is that separating freighter spacecraft crossed with a B-wing!

If you are going to steal ideas from us, can we at least have Bulk Army Builder Sets with 4-8 generic troops?
I kind of want to get a force of Clones going, but nowadays their all :j+b: !

Also... WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THE NEW BATTLE DROID COLOR?!?!
They look like they're made of Caramel...

A clone is still a clone. And if there's anything we can learn from the Lego community it's that clones are the worst (even if I have like a hundred of them).

Also Char has the Hyaku Shiki which is the best psuedo-gundam ever. Speaking of which I bought this a few months ago and then built it a few weeks ago:

Well fuck Char, the bipolar bastard can't decide which side of the War he's on, and he has the "Genius" plan of forcing humanity into space by making the Earth uninhabitable...
