STAR WARS REBELS and the Snaggletooth Quest

4th alwaysMay The 25th be with you! Belatedly of course. Seems the 40th Anniversary of the release of Episode 4 a New Hope slipped through my fingers like Star Systems through Governor Tarkin’s, as Leia said it would!

 

Anyway, Rebels series 3 has just finished, following Ezra Bridger and the rag-tag crew of the Ghost, a Millennium Falcon-type ship that seems to be part setting up ANH and the New Trilogy and part product-placement for Disney toys.

So after the climatic finale Zero Hour I watched Rogue One and A New Hope back-to-back, which was a great watch, though the ending of R1 was a bit abrupt, but tied in well to the start of ANH.

I’m playing the first Star Wars Battlefront game on the ps2 again, so I may have to blog that at some point!

I also went to Warrington Market Comic Con at the weekend, which was okay, but saw more toys for sale. I bought an AST-5 for five pounds at For the love of Sci-Fi in December, so have been looking at other stuff. The price of original Kenner-edition toys are bloody ridiculous though, you would think Lucasfilm would just remake them, but a bit better, especially Darth Vader. I must have had about half a dozen headless Vaders- looked like some kind-of Robot without a head!

Anyway, I’ve since come to the conclusion that all this ‘collectability’ nonsense is just that. Looking out for a red or blue Snaggletooth that costs at least £80 is a bit of a ripoff. So I’m giving that quest up and just going to enjoy whatever happens with Rebels and The Last Jedi, though it will probably be about Luke giving up the Light and the dark and being like the Bendu, be the one in the middle.

One thing I did like was watching Boogie Storm- the dancing Stormtroopers, complete with Meco’s 70’s Disco theme!

 

Time to get groovy and Feel the funkyside of the Force!!

5 REASONS TO GET EXCITED ABOUT- Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) Series 2!

20130617041535a0di52mlkhbv0psq“There is a wild fire inside you, burning desire you can’t extinguish

Your crimson arrow rips through the twilight; this is the moment for war!”

Guren No Yumiya- Attack on Titan theme- Linked Horizon/Hiroyuki Sawano- English lyrics by Ama Lee

 

Attack on Titan Series 2 is on! In Japanese- English dubs won’t be for a while.

Doctor Who is also back- but it’s AoT that I’m more excited about, which may seem strange from all the Who-related stuff I’ve been writing/filming/posting over the past few years.

Anyway, Tiglet joined the Survey Corp and came up with Five Reasons he’s excited about it-

 

5)-

WHY is there a Titan in The Wall?

The second biggest twist of the finale- a bit of wall coming loose and the face of another colossal Titan revealed. Another mystery.

 

4)-

What Happens to Annie?

She’s in a crystalline cocoon, deep underground. What will happen when she wakes up? Did she do that to protect the identities of the other Human Titans? I know who the Colossal and Armoured ones are, only because I looked up the Manga on Wikipedia and it gives ALL the details!

 

3)-

A Major Character dies.

Again, because of the Manga/Wikipedia I know who it is, but not how, so have deliberately not read that far ahead. Will the Second series have that in it?

 

2)-

Titans DEFENDING Humans/The Wall???

WHAT? Why might be a more pertinent question. That raises the question of who actually built it, it would have taken a very long time, as it encompasses most of Europe (even though the series is made in Japan, the setting is futuristic/post-apocalyptic Europe)

 

1)-

What’s in the basement of Erin’s House?

Something they set out to do, but never completed because of Annie, but the secret of Erin’s transformation and maybe how Human/Titan hybrids are made could be there. And since Erin’s Father has disappeared, he could be the one with all the answers, I just don’t know.

So there are a lot of questions that could get answered in the second series.

We’ll just have to wait and see won’t we?

 

“Song for the Reluctant Heroes,

Oh give me your strength,

our life is too short.

Song for the Reluctant Heroes.

I wanna be brave, like you.

From my Heart”-

Reluctant Heroes- Hiroyuki Sawano and MPI

Events- Liverpool MCM COMIC CON 2017- SUPERCLARK 3- Coming Soon!

DSCF0126So after two dozen Comic book Conventions/meetups and photoshoots last year, I’m off to the third event of 2017- MCM Comic Con-Liverpool, for BOTH days, not just one like last year.

Ellesmere Port Comic Con was great, I’m still working on photos, but getting EPCC and the Liverpool Cosplay Meet in January videos edited and uploaded was epic in itself. I made three versions of LCM with different music. The version uploaded featured Lindsey Stirling and Lzzy Hale from Halestorm and ‘Shatter me’. If that didn’t work, as backup I had Nami Kichi’s Cover versions of Brave Shine from Fate Stay/Night and Ignite from Sword Art Online 2.

For EPCC it was a general vid of the event and 360 shoot, then a video of the Cosplay Contest.

It was a comment off Ironman at EP that made me think I need to make another attempt at Superman/Clark Kent, so I have been planning a bit in advance, which makes a change from making things up as I go along like I normally do!

Anyway, that is the plan- Saturday Clark Kent, roving Reporter for the Daily Planet will be around, and then on Sunday I’ll need to find a Jimmy Olsen to film me doing my Super-thing!

Should be FUN!

Thanks also to Thomas Hulks as Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash!

COSDAY 4- My Cosday Will Go On- 300TH VIDEO!

Year of the monkey!

2016 New Year card or background with monkey. Happy New Year. Merry Christmas. Year of the monkey!

 

Well, this has been a bit different. Tidying, sorting, recycling revising old stories and CV, catching up on stuff, seeing Rogue 1 twice and planning Dr. Rrr Series 2.

In the midst of all that, I have even begun sorting photos and clips from last few hikes and compiled a compilation of the two dozen Comic Cons/Cosplay meets and events from 2016.

 

It’s been an awesome journey, trying out new things, especially Anime- Attack on Titan etc and learning new things/expanding my Cultural horizons. Chinese New Year was awesome, it’s still the Year of the Monkey, and a right cheeky one it has been!

Recently I’ve become fascinated and even captivated by the concept of Bunraku- Japanese Puppetry, something akin to Thunderbirds-style, indeed Starfleet was an 80’s Bunraku that was even more popular in the West than in Japan- it was a shame a fire destroyed the original puppets though. Thunderbolt Fantasy is a Taiwan-based show and something I’d like to emulate at some point- after Series 2 of Dr. Rrr though!

Anyway, 300 videos. Ever changing-ever learning, My Cosday will go on!

Bye bye Holidays- blink and you’ll miss ‘em!!

My head’s been buzzing like a million Bees at a Bee convention; even a second coffee on a Sunday afternoon has made only a few leave.

It’s been an insane week at Mercer Central; my supposed holiday has gone in the blink of an eye as I’ve had my Nephew’s round every-single-day. I had such a bad case of cabin fever on Wednesday I had to get away for a few hours.

That was a Trek unlike any ever before, as my bus pass was on its final day and I’d been planning on going to Wales, well, that plan had been exterminated faster than a Draconian fleet facing Daleks.

Anyway, instead of going Walton Hall Gardens or doing something simple, I made a start on the Sandstone Trail, a Megahike if ever there was.

I got partway round and decided to join the Eddisbury Way, which is when things got REALLY interesting and saw The Eagles/Buzzards/whatever for the first time.

Hiking in the rain is not that much fun, so skipped the rest and spent next couple of days watching and playing Star Wars-the films/Lego shorts/ Monopoly/ Battlefront 2/Lord of the Rings Chess/Uno/Frustration and Doctor Who Frustration with my Nephews (By using daleks and the set in the new Panini version of Doctor Who Adventures)

Saturday I was planning on seeing the MonaLisa Twins in Liverpool, but thought if I did that bit of the Eddisbury Way I missed, that would be great, little did I know it would turn into an Ordeal. There is something about giving up and turning back when it gets too much, but little old tenacious me decided to press on, even when the path became overgrown and I got my legs scratched and lacerated by thistles/nettles/thorns and goddess knows what else.

BUT, seeing the Eagles again more than made up for it, even though the battery on my camera ran out, so missed a few stunning views on the way to Helsby.

Seeing Mona Lisa Twins was enjoyable, they even played three of my favourite 60’s songs- This Boy (my fave Beatles track!) Jonny B Goode and the Hippy Hippy Shake, so that was amazing, but I was absolutely shattered and hungry, so today’s been recovering and trying to figure out what’s next- I’ve got three milestones coming up- the fifth Bloggerversary/Facebook double bill and Fifth Anniversary of my Job as a Playworker, since after ten years of applying for Media jobs, it was the only offer I had so took it! Didn’t think I’d last that long in Education, but I have! Who’d have thunk it eh?

There are still a bunch of reviews and stories to write, half a dozen videos to take me a little bit closer to the 200 mark, so those might get started on this week. ITA needs updating and Tiglet’s been walking and posing so that’s a start.

Happy Holidays- Blink and it’ll be gone faster than the Millennium Falcon on the Kessel run. Is it me or I have I overdosed on Star Wars this week??

Anyway, I think I’ve finally woken up- at 6.23PM! Think I’ll have a cup of tea!

ITA- eagle2
