Kre-o Star Trek Enterprise

Kre-o Star Trek Enterprise
I got this set when Amazon put them on clearance for $17 back during the 2013 holiday season. However, it wasn't until 2015 that I got around to putting it together. ^^;; This is based off the new movie version of the Enterprise and was part of the toy merchandise for Into Darkness (which sucked bricks, btw :P).

Kre-o Star Trek Enterprise
Gimmicks include spring-shooting photon missile above the deflector dish and light up gimmick for deflector and warp nacelles. It had 3 different glowing patterns depending on how you pressed the light button. And it only included one missile for the photon torpedo; if you lose it, you SOL. :P Because of the electronics for the lighting gimmick, most of the secondary hull, the warp nacelles, and the bridge connecting them, are pre-assembled. You take the piece out of the box, rotate the pylon part sideways, and attach bricks to it to complete the look. Kinda sad, really. -_-;

Kre-o Star Trek Enterprise
One more gimmick or play feature is that you can take off the "lid" of the primary hull to reveal the bridge. Crew includes Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and 2 random crew members. Would have been nice if they replaced McCoy and the random crew with Uhura, Sulu, and Chekov so we can have the real bridge crew but then we wouldn't have an excuse to buy the other Kre-o sets, would we? :P

Kre-o Star Trek Enterprise
"What happened to Sulu?"
"He has lungworms, sir. I am future red shirt #2."

Kre-o Star Trek Enterprise
"Doctor, I find your assignment to the comm station to be quite...illogical."
"Dammit, Spock! I'm a doctor, not a toy manufacturer! I would have preferred my own set as well!"

Kre-o Star Trek Enterprise
One last gimmick is that you can open the warp nacelles to review fake details inside.

The set is nice as a playset and swooshable piece but ugly as a display piece. If you want something that actually looks good, look for the Mega Bloks version of the classic Enterprise. It'll cost you an arm and a leg but it would be worth it.

Puzzle and Dragons

So I said I would talk about PaD. It's a mobile game that's pretty much taken up almost all of my game playing time and then some. It's basically your typical mobile monster/card collection game combined with a match-3 puzzle game element.

You basically take your collection of monsters and go and fight other monsters in dungeons. The fights are determined by the puzzle game aspect. Unlike your typical match-3, however, instead of making a single orb swap at a time, you have a specific amount of time to take a single orb and move it however you want a cross the screen, rearranging the orbs as you pass over them. This results in multiple combo hits which adds to your attack value. Each monster has a combination of active and passive skills which will aid in your ability to combine orbs and add to your attack power in different ways.

Sometimes, the defeated enemy will leave behind an egg which hatches into a monster at the end of the fight. The monster becomes part of your collection and you can either fuse monsters to it or fuse it to other monsters to power them up.

Like any mobile monster/card collecting game, there's a huge library of monsters to collect. You have your typical orcs, orgres, dragons, unicorns, etc.

pad12 pad11
You have your typical cool looking monsters but you also have plenty of cute ones as well. There's also plenty of waifus if you're into that aspect (I completely forgot to screencap a few of them orz).

pad08 pad10
There's also collab cards as well featuring characters from other anime and games like Bleach, Final Fantasy, Fist of the North Star, and Batman, Above are 2 of my favorite collab cards, Genryusai and Mayuri from Bleach.

pad03 pad02
2 of my top favorites. Ganesha is my very first rare egg machine pull (a way of getting otherwise super rare monster cards) and he's served me fairly well in the beginning stages of the game. He may not have any attack booster skills but he's 2x coin drop meant I was never short of cash for whatever monster fusion I want to pull. Ilm is a relatively recent pull but is arguably the most powerful card in my collection. She heads my go-to team for most dungeons.

I've tried to ditch this game numerous times last year but there's always something that keeps me hooked. Initially, I was going to keep going until perhaps the anniversary of me starting this game but at this point, I think I'll see how far I can go.

My a mess...

It's a mess

And another year comes and goes...LOL. orz

Arguably the main reason for leaving the blog on the side for so long is that most of my free time had been taken up by the mobile game Puzzle and Dragons which I'll cover in the next post. That and reading manga on Comico which I'll also cover some time...maybe. Thanks to PaD, I've left a whole bunch of stuff to the side, Anime to watch, toys to open up and play. My room's a mess due to unopened toys and too much toys left out in the open. I might have to either sell or throw out some of my toys depending on how bad I feel the situation is.

It's a mess
Boxes of stuff...orz

It's a mess

It's a mess
Transformers toys has been a hit and miss across the board. I'd say the movie line for the most part was a miss and Generations line more or less a hit with the Combiner Wars and now Titans Return series.

My work has more or less stabilized for the time being so that should allow me to better manage my time so I can get to doing some spring cleaning and blog posting. Things always like getting in the way myself. *dies* orz

It's been over a year since my last post here...hahaha...*dies*

What have I been doing...the usual I guess? Work has tired me out so I never got in the mood to do another post but this week I'm looking after my mother since she had surgery on her foot last week so I took the week off. I'll be back to work next week so this might be the only post here for a while... *croaks*

Recent developments...I finished watching Wake Up Girls. I've watched both seasons of IdolMaster, Love Live, and WUG. They all have their charms and weaknesses, it's hard to pick a favorite. ^^ I'm also sporadically watching Rinne No Lagrange. I love Rinne's 1st season OP, it's been a while since I've been so into an original anime OP. Great stuff.

Speaking of great stuff, I used Great Stuff for the first time this week. It's a insulation foam that solidifies and seals cracks and gaps. It's fun but it's also tricky to use. I don't think my first job using this was that good at all but after watching a few videos, I think I'm starting to get how this works. ^^;

Kinda got side tracked, eroge! I'm currently playing Otome ga Kanaderu Koi no Aria. I've finished 3 heroines so far and I think I'll give this a B-. It's cute but nothing outstanding. I've already bought Otome ga Irodoru Koi no Essence but I think that's going to be the last Otome game I buy for the time being. Oh!, and Kei-sama is the best! Hahya! *explodes*

Amazon links so you know what I'm talking about! And last two are NSFW, hahya!

Ke-tai Sousakan 7 DX Phone Braver 01 and Boost Phone Analyzer

This time, we have PB 01 for review! Let's take a look! Since the only difference between the Phone Bravers in physical design is the color, we won't look at all the different sides again this time. If you haven't seen PB 3's review, check here!

Hmm, looks like 01 is sulking away due to 3 getting reviewed first and having less pictures to boot. But I'm sure he'll turn around.

Ke-tai Sousakan 7 DX Phone Braver 3 and Boost Phone Medic


"You were expecting 01 but it was me, 3!" Yes, I know 3 wouldn't say something like that... ^^;

A little over 2 and a half years ago, I got 2 DX Phone Bravers from HLJ. Originally, I wasn't planning on getting them (I even had a couple posts in the past stating that) but the price dropped low enough that I was willing to give them a try (that and I think they had free shipping during the sale as well). I wound up getting 3 (pronounced "Third") and 01 (pronounced "Zero-One") as well as their Boost Phone Medic and Analyzer. 7 was long sold out but I already have the Chogokin version of 7 so I was okay with that. Anyways...

Delicious chicken sandwich

This post was brought to you by a craving for Chick-fil-a. As you can see, I ate half the fries before taking the pic. ^^; And, yes, I eat mine with Polynesian sauce.

The deluxe spicy chicken sandwich. How good a chicken sandwich is can vary since unlike other fast food chains, a Chick-fil-a chicken fillet is almost never the same. This time, I had a good one and it was delicious.
