Hello World Take Two

Hello, this is me transferring mech9 to a new location.  A funny story happened on the way to next year.  My friend, who hosts the site for free met some life changing events that caused him to leave web hosting.  And with that also went mech9's platform.  I'm grateful to my friend for all the free computing cycles and bandwidth that he gave hosting mech9 all those years and I pray for him to have the best because of his generous spirit.

It might take some time to rebuild this site again from the ground up (transferring all that data is pure murder I know), but I'll do my best during my free time.

1968 VW Beetle Restoration Project

Leaves a warm spot in my heart seeing the Willson family restore this old Volkswagen Beetle that was left standing in a farmer's field. Why is this a nostalgia post? Because the Volkswagen Beetle is actually special to me because I learned to drive in one.

Japanese Crowded People Pranks

Definitely one of the things I miss about not living in Japan anymore are definetly the gag shows. They really took it to a different level.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer

Got this from reddit. Really looking forward to this movie that is based on the Age of Ultron series. Of course I'm assuming that the storyline will be quite different considering the cast of characters in the movie versus that which was in the comicbook. Love also the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor being shown.

MG M'Quve's Gouf Construction Manual & Color Guide

MG M'Quve's Gouf Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Gundam Mobile Suit Variations comes the Gouf of Colonel M'Quve. This was released as a 1/100 Master Grade version from the Bandai Online Hobby Shop, so yes, it is an exclusive. Kinda regal don't you think? It show cases the vanity of M'Quve with its gilded design. Of course, anybody who walks into a battlefield with the concept of camouflage far from his mind must be a really brave person or one who is very confident in his abilities or of the firepower he brings.
