Another Korra in a jar. I tried so hard to figure out a way to suspend her in clear resin or epoxy or whatever it is so it would look like she was floating in mid water bending martial arts move, but my experiments with it were unfruitful. So Korra gets an unsightly wire stuck to her head.

I’ve been obsessed with Crystar since the second grade. A classmate of mine brought one of these figures into class on a rainy day in 1984. There was something about the clear blue plastic and the colorful characters that just totally blew my mind. I can remember trying so hard to trade him for one of my beat up toys but he would not budge. And so my obsession began. I picked these up on eBay a couple years back and just decide to open them….. 7 year old me just shed a single tear. I’ve been obsessed with Crystar since the second grade.

Best Akuma figure ever.

Opened this guy up and a single tear rolled down my cheek.

I grew up in the valley…… And I love it so.

Just opened the beast.
Eyes will be hurting tomorrow!

It may be hard to believe since Book 3 hasn’t even aired yet (SOON!), but we just had the final Korra animatic meeting this afternoon for the Book 4 series finale episode. It’s been bittersweet saying goodbye to so many amazing crew members as their teams have rolled off the production these last few weeks. Pictured here, left to right: Melchior Zwyer (director), Lauren Montgomery (supervising producer), Joaquim Dos Santos (co-executive producer), Ki-Hyun Ryu (supervising producer), me, Owen Sullivan (assistant director), and Mike. In hindsight, I wish we had lined up this shot so it looked like the Mac desktop tiger’s ears were sprouting from Mike’s head. 

P.S. Though we had the animatic meeting, that still means there’s a TON of work left to do on Book 4. That is still part of the pre-production process.

Definitely a milestone day in the Korra production. So many great memories, great artists, and great moments ahead. Can’t wait for you all to see what we’ve been working on.

 What a ride its been! Best crew EVER!!!

Low Interest and I are gonna do some GIFs contrasting old in-game graphics with their real life counterparts. This one’s from Predator on NES. 

Stuck home sick today. Decided to finally open this figure I ordered some time ago. Riobot Bloodia from one of capcom a lesser known fighting games Cyberbots.
