I knew you were Coco for Code Geass Matt, but a Oppai Mouse Pad?
And it's not even Best Girl!

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?
If there aren't newtypes, or Char then it's not gundam. It's just a shitty wanna-be mecha anime. Bring it on!
Implying Newtypes ever made Gundam any good?
And 00 had best Char Clone, GRAHAM AKER!!!

Alright, on to loot...
Picked up #75000 a while back:
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, the FBI 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:
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
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
Also... WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THE NEW BATTLE DROID COLOR?!?!
They look like they're made of Caramel...
