Pumpkin Carving

This past weekend Jen and I went over to a friends house and carved pumpkins. I have been interested in trying to carve one of the 3d pumpkins for a while so I gave it a shot and tried making the head of Transformers Classics Bumblebee. It was fun and I look forward to trying it again next year with the knowledge that I have now.

World Smallest Transformers

In 2003 Takara released a Transformers toy line that has been dubbed by the fans World Smallest Transformers or WST for short. They are fully transformable two inch tall versions of a bunch of the classic 80's toys. Due to the size and small parts they were only ever sold in Japan. Not too many were made and they were very hard to come by and to make matters worse they were sold in unmarked boxes so you never knew which toy you received. Also there was a different ratio for each toy in the master box making it difficult to collect them all while in the process getting a ton of the common ones. Googling around I was unable to find the ratio's for each toy, so I have put together a list of the toys with the ratios so the data will always be on the Internet.

Revell Big Boy Locomotive Model Kit

When I was a child I received a model train kit as a present, but as I was just a kid I never painted it or actually put it fully together. ...
