When it comes to pop culture, may it be otakuism or fanboyism, i have always mentioned there were the same thing. The only difference, like technology regions, is the region. One came from the West and the other from the East. Made quite a couple of friends at Supanova Sydney 2010, exchanging cards and such. Ran out of cards at 1400hrs of Day02 Supanova. But never stopped me from introducing myself as the Otaku Trooper. I am a Network Engineer, its what i do, i build networks passively. So many ways, twitter/email/blog addresses you name it. I never ask for a phone number because that is like the direct connection to a person’s soul. You dont ask for it unless both are willing or u just happen to know the person really well!

This post was made using Windows Live Writer, recently updated @ 1700hrs, 04 June 2010. Made without using the downloaded template and i am eager to find out how it goes. Offline blog posting is way easier than relying on the internet all the time. I did this for my old blog, but that didnt go well due to compatibility issues (WordPress 1.9 to 2.0).

Today’s post is about a comrade, that does an awesome Darth Vader, member of the 501st Legion, that i met in Supanova. When it comes to costumers/cosplayers i like to learn about their background and know how they turned into fanboy/otakus. This Darth Vader happened to be Wolverine aka John Howlett of the X-Men (as seen in the comics and animated series, and movies). He did a wonderful Wolverine! I was pretty much asking him on Facebook if he could get me a pair of Wolvie claws and mail them to me. So it would go well with the 3 key items i want to have. The marks of the Avengers, a Shield (shield), Helmet (armor), and Claws (weapon).

Snikt! Snikt! Bring it on, mate! I mean “bub!”

Costume is based off the X-Men movies, takes an Aussie to pull of a Hugh Jackman!

I can SNIKT! too!

I so want a pair of these!

Hmmm .. this editor doesnt support CSS scripting which kind of rules out the Caption codes >.< This is the part where comrade Shazzsteel is gonna go “HOHO” and “HEHE” since i would  be using the same format as him now. Le sigh. But in future posts i will still put captions can it looks neater =)

This happens to be Wolvie’s/Vader’s Room before he boxed it up!

But according to him, now its a trillion times worse! LOL. So far after looking thru a room like that, i think this fanboy can rival any otaku room on this planet! (Ok, seriously, so CAPTIONS work on YOUTUBE vids?!) Hmmm, tried the code but it was using DIVs instead of CAPTION CSS style codes. Guess i would have to edit future posts with a CSS compatible editor! This post remains unedited, except for the Thumbnail pic i have to add in for the front page.

The True Avengers .. finally! 'Nuff said!

After reading this issue, i am finally glad that it all came through. Marvel Comics has shown what it would be like if heroes of the old met the current 22nd century, which is dark and political all over. Who lead the political war against the Avengers? Norman Osborn (Green Goblin) would be responsible, the big honcho of HAMMER (replaced SHIELD). Nick Fury is back. Captain America is back. So is the blondie hammer wielding Asgardian goldilocks, Thor! I didnt realize that Sentry had something to do with the massive ‘shadow icon’ on top of the Avengers Tower, but during his death, it vanished! Leaving space for Thor to add an upgrade of his own, symbolizing the alliance between Midgard (Earth) and Asgard!

With this all out of the picture. Looking forward to Secret Avengers (not exactly Black Ops, but secret enough!) and the Ultimate’s storyline of the .. mm .. Ultimates! (known as the Avengers, but they are called the Ultimates). Also looking forward to Ultimate Nick Fury’s Black Ops Avengers! Why? Frank Castle (Punisher, yeah i know his movie blowed) .. but he was chosen to be the Black Op Captain America! Geeze! I wonder what other surprises would be there for a comic fanatic nut like me!

If there were going to make an Avenger movie, all i wanna ask is, do they have enough air time for the movie and the money to hire such a big cast? Hugh Jackman, Robert Downey Jr, and McGuire? Hmmm .. Well, thats something i would let my future self worry about. ‘Nuff said, True Believers!
