Spotlight: May 6, 2021
It's May which means that the year is officialy over 1/3rd of the way done and I don't know what to do with this information. Time is a funny thing and it has absolutely been flying lately. But hey, one month closer to some new video games, right? Anything coming up that you're looking forward to? 😇 I picked up my very first Pokémon game ever and have been happily taking what I call Pikapics of cute animals so that's been fun!
CRÈME DE LA CRÈME
Revenge of the Si(x)th wouldn't be complete without Vader, right? /u/Kurrupt_Gaming was a bit upset he missed the Star Wars day on May 4th but I'd say it's perfect for today. It's a showdown between Master Chief vs Darth Vader. Who wins, in your opinion?
You all really, really dig Halo and Doom crossovers so when I found @geoffplaysguit's theme song mashup of the two, I knew it would be a hit. And, so far, on YouTube it absolutely is which means you are all guaranteed to love it. Enjoy!
You know, this section really is a misnomer. Any doodles *I* would make absolutely would not wind up in a blog like this. I don't even think they'd make Mom's refrigerator. Speaking of Mom, it's Mother's Day this weekend in the US so consider this your reminder!
From toys to treats, there's an abundance of goods made with that special ingredient from the heart. There's never a shortage of awesome skills on display.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, anything I say here is just superflous. Let's check out the stunning snaps!
There was a trend kicking around a few weeks ago that was like, "The cosplay and the cosplayer" and I was pleased to see a couple Halo fans jump on that!
Thre have been some really incredible toy creations lately. From "unboxings" to clever creations, the community never disappoints. As an aside, did you know that @MegaConstrux is always keeping their eyes peeled for neat toy creations to show off too? Now you know! Armed with that, you can now sit back and enjoy the show(s)!
We've seen people take the NERF Assault Rifles and turn them into incredible looking props before. @Incursion_YT has gone a step further and put together a video of his AR transformation. If you want to see the AR go from NERF toy to cosplay AR, you won't want to miss this one.
For those of you that have been following these for a while, you know I love stop-motion films. If you're new here, you should know that I love stop-motion films. So when I saw @MooXProduction's MegaConstrux stop-motion, Recon Ambush, I stopped all motion and gave it a watch!
We're all familiar with the standard issue Halo Warthog. Brick Man 117 isn't satisfied with only being able to bring 3 of his friends along for the ride so he set out to make the LOOOOOOOONG 'Hog. How many seats did he get to? You'll have to watch for yourself!
Remember Viktor the Grunt from above? If you liked him, you'll for sure want to take a peek at @motiondomain's video revealing the latest blind bag figures. There's some pretty neat ones to see!
If you wanted to check out the Series 2 blind bags, @PodcastEvolved should be your next stop. If you're wanting to build your army of Covenenant, these are the ones you'll want go grab!
Finally, a selected round up of treats to see you on your way!
This spooky game comes out tonight so it seems only fitting to leave you with wondering if Lady Dimitrescu also thought Chief would be taller, courtesy of @KawaiiBlendrArt.
Having graced your eyes with that, there's simply nowhere left to go so I will wrap things up now.
