I don’t know what it is about this mech by Markus Rollbühler, but it has had me grinning ear to ear ever since I first laid my eyes on it. Maybe it’s the smug yet whimsical look on the classic yellow mini-figure, or maybe it’s just the thought of being even lazier when getting a hot beverage in the morning. But in the end, we all know that the reason why this mech has me grinning is because it resembles the cute and not at all creepy character from Toy Story: Babyface.
Builder Paddy Bricksplitter describes Hobson here at a “Faithful robotic butler to the idle rich” so I can say with complete confidence you will never see him at my house. Not that I am not rich, it’s just that I’m never idle…and I’m not rich. But he does seem very proper, well dressed and goes about his tasks with a certain panache, which I can appreciate.

Despite overwhelming odds, gamer Zach Bishop has managed to complete several levels of his game and advanced to level 68. While the importance of hygiene and sustenance are acknowledged, priorities must be set. Or in the words of Zach “yeah, whatever”. Yes, the threat of unloading the dishwasher proved to be a momentary distraction, but with concentration and perseverance, that too was overlooked. And while room cleaning and laundry loom large another threat could prove to be his downfall, sleep. We understand efforts are underway to thwart this however, with the discovery of a half consumed Rockstar discovered behind the monitor.
With all the absolute insanity in the world I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to live in the Shire more than I do at this very moment. I know it’s a fictional place, but it’s so peaceful and perfect my heart aches for it. Builders Jake Hansen and Cole Blood have crafted an idyllic place I want to be, even if it’s just to park my Airstream for a couple weeks.
When tasked with giving an Overwatch hero a brick junker makeover, builder curtydc decided on Reinhardt, and the results are a compelling mix of Overwatch and Mad Max. I’ve never played the game, but it would seem this guy has a beef with Omnics, which makes me glad I’m not an Omnic.
This is one of those pieces that got me with the shear whimsy of it. I’m sure Umbra-Manis is not the first person to pun on “TIE” in this manor, but did so in a way that brought a big smile to my face on a day when I needed it. The use of the wavy castle flags (4495) for intakes is clever, as they are uncommon in sci-fi builds and adds a bit of a cloth like texture to the bowtie. Next time you need your star fighters to be dressed to impress, Umbra-Manis’ Osiris Fleet Systems are the folks to call.
