    Come again? How on earth would that place cost half a million quid to rebuild? In fairness the fire probably did them a favour. Building that place and living there seemed to be killing them.
  2. Technically Union Jack has already been in the MCU. The British member of Captain America's gang in the First Avenger was James Falsworth, who was the first Union Jack.
  3. The Kurt Russell de-aging was apparently mostly make-up work surprisingly. Whatever they've done with Jackson, it looks great. He looks better than he did in Jurassic Park.

    Venom - October 2018

    Supposedly a lot hinges on how Venom does. So of course the decision was made to go for that sweet sweet PG13 money. I hope it falls on its arse. A Spider-Man universe without Spider-Man is dumb, and very few of these characters are good enough to carry a film on their own.

    The airbrush gives you more flexibility and let's you do more techniques, and in the long run it's cheaper. On the downside it's more hassle and has a learning curve (that I'm still on).

    Well the plan today was to finish priming the RX78, then to gloss the Hazel and begin weathering it once it was dry. But coming to do the priming earlier my airbrush isn't working properly and nothing I do re. cleaning and dis and reassembly helps. So I get out my other new airbrush and their it has a different connection to the hose, which is fine I just need to get it off, but I can't get it to budge. I'm also stressed to fuck so before the lot goes out the window I think gundam-ing today is off the cards. In the meantime the Hazel looks like this

    Gunpla: The Thread

    I'm hoping to get some weathering done on the Hazel this week. Originally I wanted that as a clean build but there's many sins that need fixing... So this gives me a chance to try to emulate Naoki's weathering style, which is deceptively a simple but looks so good. I will fail, but I will try. Then hide my failure with more weathering. I might get some photos up of it and the Aile Strike (allowing for the fact they'll be taken on a hideous sofa not long for this world...). Maybe. I also might prime up the MG RX78-2 v.3, because why not. And in clearing bits of the house up I found a spare set of Bandai water slides for the Aile Strike, which is nice.

    I really like the RG RX178. I built the Titans version, which then my first painted build (i.e. paint pig). The only RG I've built, I kinda like the MG scale more, but I really appreciated the detail and intricacy in that scale. I might get another eventually as another experiment piece. But first I've got to build the Full Armour ver Ka and the Banshee ver Ka first I think. On the plus side I managed to find the waist armour for the Hazel. Somehow it ended up under my compressor...

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    Ben is just a vacuum. He's got irritating mannerisms, a dreadful sense of humour, isn't blessed with a good voice and thus just tends to undermine everything he's involved with. Unfortunately he's also taken on the old Klepek role of 'appear in everything', only more so because it appears that Ben doesn't actually do anything. At least Klepek occasionally was busy pretending to be a journalist. Ben's a really bad presence in everything, which seems to make him uniquely unqualified for the job. You can only assume he's got the job because Jeff bizarrely likes him and presumably because he's cheap. I don't listen to the Beastcast anymore as I only really like Vinny and Alex (I find Dan's schtick incredibly tiresome) but I can't imagine Abby brings much to it. I don't mind Abby, certainly compared to Ben, but I do feel like she's only tangentially interested in games and would run out the door instantly if someone gave her a job in comedy (which is unfortunate because she's not that funny and improv is a dreadful art form). Giantbomb really does feel like it's running out of steam.

    Marvel's Iron Fist (Netflix)

    Well, at least he wears something approaching the outfit for 30 seconds...
  13. You still couldn't do the original Defenders because Namor is wrapped up in some obscure deal with Universal like the Hulk one (but seemingly worse), so unfortunately the Sub-Mariner is likely to be in limbo for quite a while longer..
