Finally Arrived

I really can’t remember how long ago I ordered this. Probably was around April 2021 at least. I took until Jan 2022 for it to finally arrive.

The comic, meanwhile, arrived right when it was supposed to release date wise (though I’m not remembering exactly when that was at this point).

It was nice having the crossover toy side by side with the crossover book.

Have I taken him out of his packaging yet? Well no. But I have him. And I’m glad that I do as it honors two fandoms I’ve always quite enjoyed.

Interestingly enough, I started watching Transformers Prime on my lunch breaks and it slowly sucked in both Newbie and Superman. Now I have to wait for them to continue it. :p

I don’t mind though. I tried introducing the older two to Transformers and while TJ enjoyed them and thought they were cool, the interest and passion just didn’t form like it stands with me.

The animation quality (and probably toy quality) seems a lot better than back in my day.


Five Games, Five Generations

So before I get started, where the crap have I been? Well, after that last post on 11/16/18 I ran out of pictures and time to post anything more. The joys of helping run a family during the holidays. It’s been a rough couple of months.

I mean, it’s taking me almost a month to get to looking at this tweet we’ll get to into a moment.

Now, if you don’t follow this guy’s blog about gaming yet, I’d highly recommend heading his way. You can find him over at Adventure Rules.

So this challenge was to pull five games from five different generations (and challenge five people, which I’ll leave alone).

A tweet wouldn’t do my response justice, hence why I’m here.

You want generations of gaming? I’ve got generations of gaming.

Let’s get started!

For those of you who are familiar with World of Darkness, this takes place in the current PBEM (play-by-email) game taking place in Pheonix. I’m part of a long running (10+ years!) game based in yahoo groups.

You can find more information about the game here:

General World of Darkness information can be found on a previous post where I wrote about it here.

So, without further adue, here is my Mage Phoenix character on a Seeking, questing for Arete rank 5.
