ME, GRIMLOCK by Thien Pham

It took me 45 minute to get Grimlock out of his cage.

Flaming sword? Check.

Not effing around.

Monster mode mother effers!

T-rex n' effect.

Attack the ibico Comb Binding Machine!!!

The Rebel stronghold on the icy and remote planet of Hoth.

A spy lurks on the desolate surface.

The spy is spied.

And quickly dispatched.

Not before a signal is sent.

The troops soon arrive.

But the Rebels are ready.

A firefight ensues.

The first casualty.

Both sides take some hits.

The tides have favored the Rebels, until…

Wampa Time!





Lord Vader surveys the battlefield.

Morale of the story…

Never send Snow Troopers to do a Wampa's work.

Robot Gundan Does Awesome Poses

Vintage capsule toys from Japan. I believe these were either from the 70s or 80s. The translucent one was the chase figure.

My first attempt. As you can see, blue against blue isn't the best idea.

Rezin Schnyder has her work cut out for her. An opponent like none other.


Does she know of Mogurudon's secret power?

Gaze at his belly and it's all over!

To be continued?

Konoha Gakuen Field Trip!

Sakura checks out the view.

Sasuke, broody as always! You think you're the only one who's got it rough?

Being out in the sun reminds Naruto of his younger days…

Believe it!

Don't know what Konoha Gakuen is? It's actually just a parody the anime did for one of its ending animations. I really wish this manga existed though. Perhaps I should look for a doujinshi version.
Check out the ending animation here.
Even better, here's a full 8 minute long short animation, well, really just more stills with dialogue, sound effects and music, which I believe was a bonus on a Japanese DVD release as the ending animation was so popular.
Check out Shippu Konoha Gakuen Den here.
Finally, since I like this world so much, I'll be working on my own doujinshi version.

Amedeo on the Lookout!

I spy a Konoha Gakuen Naruto, as well as a dusty UNIQLO t-shirt tube!

Zombie Booskas on the Attack!

Figure: 25th Anniversary Snake-Eyes and Timber(2007)
Action Figure Correographer: The Jaguar
Title: Betrayal
Correographer's Statement: Several years ago, one of my coworkers ate my lunch. He claims it was an accident, since we both had frozen burritos. But how could this be? Does he think me daft?! His was cheese and bean, while mine was chicken and cheese! His was in a lime green wrapper, while mine was plainly forest green! It was a sharp, clear, metaphorical knife in my back. After all, I was the one who replenished his stapler when it was empty, I was the one who lent him my white-out when he was in a bind, I was the one who kept his secret when our boss asked if he was really sick. Yet, at the most crucial moment of our day - lunchtime - he chose his belly over our friendship. Betrayal, how bitter is your sting!

It is from this well of pain that I draw the emotional undergirding of this pose. Watch helplessly as Timber, O Innocent Wolf, is betrayed by the ninja he trusts most in the world! I cannot ponder this work for too long a time, for it touches that spot in my heart already made weak by Old Yeller and John Steinbeck's Of Mice And Men. I fear I would melt into a puddle of disconsolate tears.

Please note: This pose expresses a deeply personal emotional reality for me. In no way is it meant to be read as an indictment of the moral character of ninjas. I mean, my best friend is a ninja! So Ninja Anti-Defamation League, save your e-mails! Or, I swear by the Matrix of Leadership, they'll go straight into my Spam Folder!
