If you aren't already following the AliExpress thread give it a look, it's rad for finding weird cheap little things that you order as a present for your future self since it can take weeks or even months for a shipment to arrive you'll have probably forgotten you even ordered it in the first place.

e. To tie it into the thread, here's Lego Hitler with Metal Gear Solid's logo

One final gift I got for myself as a late present: I preordered this cool tank!



e: I'm an adult I swear, I say as I look at my new toys and play my new games and anticipate more cool toys coming in the mail


That looks cool but oof, 21 bucks? Or 36 if you get two?


I remember getting these a while back, I only ever built the first one though because they're big and I don't exactly have any free and open space where they'd be able to stand safely. If I had them out on any of my current shelves, they'd get knocked over and potentially destroyed by the cats in no time. Anyway, I got these at Five and Below. I'm sure I've shown you them before but I'll post them for others to see, too.





Also, while searching for those pics, this came up. I know you like transformers so uhhh I don't think this is official but you might get a kick out of it or something.

Holy cow those robots look radical and I want them - I have big empty shelves waiting for more cool toys, haha.

And yeah, the tank is a bit expensive, but I have no idea how expensive papercrafts are in general, so I talk to the guy on twitter and like him so I figure half of the money goes to making him have a good day, which is good. The rest goes to getting a cool little project I can put together and stick next to my Shockwaves!

Even if you don't want to buy anything it's a fun thread, like when we found people selling seeds for plants that don't actually exist or all the times weird fetish artwork got scooped up by a clueless manufacturer and slapped on a product. Also almost every big gaming pre-order/special edition doohickey you've ever missed out on is being sold there right now.

Knock yourself out.

I've done papercraft stuff before. Here's a gift I made for a person during a secret santa a couple years ago.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNSA777KT68

He likes monster musume so I made him one of those automata papercrafts, the things where you make paper gears and paper cranks and you create a small machine that moves, and I took a pattern for a separate design and redid it with a monster musume theme.


Papercraft is fun. Designing something from the ground up with original art tho, idk. I've only ever made pre-existing designs and the 1 time I stepped out of my comfort zone was when I made that present I linked there so...

e: lmao I forgot I even made him that second thing too. That was from a pre-existing design I found on deviantart though, not something I custom did or anything like that. Most I did there was I scaled the size up iirc cause I wanted him to have something bigger. It's Miia from Monster Musume but she had different outfits you could put on her by taking her head off and sliding the outfit over top or swapping her body with a different body.

Witcher 3 is up there in gorgeous games.

And Crysis modern equivalent is Crysis 3, I think. Any other game that strains machines is just bad optimization, or obscenely huge loads all at once.

Alternatively, DOOM, which should actually be about hitting 60 frames instead of looking good, but if you can do both, you're in for a hell of a pretty game.

To kick off this new month of video games I just beat Prey and drat, that's a good fuckin game. I don't know if I want to dive back in for a second playthrough right away or move on to something a little lighter for a bit, but I'm probably gonna be going back for a second playthrough at some point.

How do you think he found the videos of people having the same bad idea but multiplayer style to wank to. I knew nothing about it til the cop investigating decided to get all graphic about what was found on his laptop and how they found him. Poor dude had his pants around his ankles and a Walmart sack over his head.
