G.I.Joe Comic Solicitations From IDW For April 2012
So many pretty things, so little time. Valentine’s Day is a wonderful chance to get a little something that’s completely impractical. But I’d like to think they’re still perfectly necessary. These are some things that have caught my fancy on etsy lately: Knit Scarf, Denizgunes Knitting, $75 | Copper Arrow Ring, Miju & You, $24 [...]
At the end of the summer, the world will be treated to a new Spider-Man movie, The Amazing Spider-Man, featuring a new villain, a new costume, a new Peter Parker and a new take on the wall-crawler’s origin. Diamond Select Toys has been hard at work on their toys and other merchandise for the film, [...]
Avengers Quinjet And Hellicarrier Toys Shown At UK Toy Fair
With the figure and the feature film right around the corner Diamond Select Toys has published a special behind the scenes feature to their Art Asylum focusing on the development of their Marvel Select figure based on The Amazing Spider-Man. Follow the above link to check it out and pay attention to the last image on the bottom for a sneak peek at the Lizard figure!
Sideshow Collectibles has opened the pre-order for the second wave of Hot Toys' Toy Story Cosbaby collection. Click the link above to get yours now!
We're a ways removed from Halloween, but customizer extraordinaire Mikie Graham has a spooky treat for us: a 10" Hugo Simpson Qee! The Treehouse of Horror episode he hails from is a classic, and is easily one of my favorites.
This is an impressive recreation of the character. The hilariously grotesque pigeon/rat is included (stitched together with real string), and Hugo's side shows the result of his separation from Bart. The only thing to give pause is the $300 price tag. I loved The Simpsons back in the day, but that price is pretty steep.
Photos of another stylish otaku home office posted over at figure.fm - this time by Dieta from Germany. Great lighting in the room which has figures dotted all over the place but displayed with thought as not to make the place look cluttered. I want an office like this when I get a bigger place!
One thing that Dieta does that I do is to try and light corners which tend to be dark to make the room feel a wee bit bigger. Having glass tables also has the same effect.
I've left the original text by Dieta below each photo.
My desk is on the right side. I’ve mounted 2 Ergotron LX arms on a 2×2 Expedit which is placed behind the Galant glass desk. Both screens are HP ZR24w models, one connected via DVI and the other one via DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort to my Mac Pro. Below the screens sits my MacBook Air (13″ 2011 model) and 2 of my favorite Animé figures (Sasasegawa Sasami & Ikki Tousen). The iPad on the left is connected to the BlueTooth keyboard which is placed in front of it. I use it mostly to watch YouTube videos (keeps my desktop a bit cleaner) or to keep an eye on my servers via SSH and the magical saidar. Oh the black little box next to the iPad is my great Kindle! What an awesome device. On the HP wireless printer/scanner lays another Animé figure, but more on her later.
Sojas desk is on the left – she now also uses one of our 3 HP 24″ screens and so far she seems to be pretty happy with it We also mounted a Ergotron LX arm for flexibility. She uses her MacBook white and her iPad to work on her blog.
The next photo shows the cat scratch tree. Willow loves it and often sleeps on the top platform when I work on my computer at the weekend or late night. The blinds are very useful in the summer, but are looking nice in the winter as well. A new carpet was one of the rare things we bought last week to make the home office more comfortable. Willow is a bit scared of it and always walks around it, but that’s just a matter of time.
The other wall is covered by 3 wall scrolls – a kind of poster, printed on a textile – and of course, all prints are Animé figures. On the bottom of the Lack rack (on the left) you can see 2 Onnto DataTales, external RAID devices, which started to pop out HDs randomly. Meanwhile I’ve installed a dedicated backup server (based on Debian) which contains a 6TB RAID5 array – secure enough for backups. On top of the 2 horizontal Expedits you will find some more of our figures and some plants.
The other wall is covered with more decorative stuff and my 4 certificates that I’ve reached in the last few months. LPIC-1, 2 Novell Certificates and a Microsoft Certified Professional one.
Steel Angel Kurumi. Kurumi, Saki & Karinka. Very hard to find – took them 4 weeks to ship from Australia to Germany and better don’t ask for the price we paid!
K-On! A huge Mio and 3 Nendoroid Petit in front – so cute!
A-Channel. Tooru & Run. Got them both for christmas last year from my wife – what a great present.
Seitokai no Ichizon (most left & most right), Hatsune Miku Nendoroid on the drums and Toko Amano Nendoroid.
To Heart 2. Nanako-Chan Sukumize. I saw this cute figure on eBay and again and again I watched the auction and I knew I HAD to buy her. She’s 1/5 – much bigger than our other figures, but well – she’s so cute that she got a special place. The calendar you can see is self collected and edit by my wife – a lot kawaii images are inside.
To Heart 2. Konomi Yuzuhara. She sits on my wifes desk and looks what she does when she’s working.
To-Love-Ru. Sairenji Haruna came in two different christmas versions. Very nice for the living room in the pre-christmas time. And of course you see Belldandy “Fighting Wings” and my other Kurumi figure in the background.
In the basement, the servers are working. The big black box is the ESXi server which hosts the fileserver, a web server (<a href="http://www.figure.fm/clickout.php?url=http://wetter.klein2.net" target="_blank">http://wetter.klein2.net</a>) and some internal used VMs like a virtual VCR for HD TV (Sat DVB-S2). The grey one behind the ESXi is Hotaru, the backup server. In the rack is currently no running server, but the massive (weight) APC RS800 UPS and a 4 port Compaq KVM switch.
Both Futro boxes. The top one is my gateway & weather station data collector while the bottom one will become the new router once I will find some time to install pfSense onto the 2GB IDE SSD.
And believe it or not - this is what the same room used to look like! More photos of the previous room at figure.fm.

Pretty much knew it was going to snow due to the very cold weather we've been having in Tokyo. Last year we had to wait until mid February to get settling snow but this year our serving came early and it was really bucketing it down last night.
Photos taken out n about last night and this morning. Extremely pleased with the performance of the Sony NEX-5N and the Zeiss F1.8 24mm lens - awesome combo is awesome.
All photos in this post (and a few more) posted in HD wallpaper format in my Google Plus account - feel free to trace to use.
For weather checks I use this resource at Yahoo. If you are traveling to Tokyo at this time of the year, I would advise on a warm coat, gloves and hat as the wind can be biting cold at times. If you are going to use the trains then you may boil to death as its usually really warm down there - unless you bring something like a Uniqlo down jacket which are warm but light.
The JR trains and many restaurants go overkill on the heating making it extra uncomfortable when you are on the move - a light but warn jacket will save your bacon.
Lots of folks are sick at this time of the year which is why you will see many folks wearing surgical masks like this - this is because either some folks are sick (and don't want to spread germs) or because one does not want to catch any germs. It can also be because they have no mouth and don't want people to know that they are from Mars or that they have three tongues.
There is a poll embedded in this article.

Daily Graffiti: Miniature Heroes in Melbourne, Australia. Wheatpaste spotted by Geoff Stahl.
Courtesy of The Loyal Subjects and Secret Fresh, here’s a look at the release and signing of Joe Ledbetter’s all-wood Burger Bunny produced by The Loyal Subjects exclusively for the Manila-based toy boutique/brand. It looks like plenty of Joe’s fans and collectors came out for the event at the sweet...
Put those prefix codes away; I assure you this U.S.S. Reliant is quite benign. It's the work of Christer Nyberg, and as you can see, his love of Star Trek is probably matched only by his skill with Legos.
Nyberg spent almost two years on the project, using over 10,000 Lego pieces. The proof is in the detail; as a big Star Trek fan myself, I can say this recreation is spot-on. He even went so far as to put lighting effects on the ship. Now that's some attention to detail!
