I just came across this post from PingMag, a Japanese design blog, which interviews Alex Kubalsky, the guy who designed the transformation of the Autobot, Mirage, for the current Transformer movie. I also love his model of Bumblebee - especially with the smile. Pity he didn't turn out that way in the movie!

You may recall in a recent post that I possess the original Mirage (produced by Hasbro). And Kubalsky also had strange dreams like some of us - he got into a state where his mind was awake, but his body was still asleep! However he didn't seem to get the chills - instead, he turned his dream into something constructive and that has defined his career. I've woken up with a lovely tune in my head before, and even managed to record it down. However I tend to forget many others :(

Sometimes dreams can shape careers. Kubalsky's story proves it! He doesn't even use 3D software - he hand draws everything. Just like how a few of us like getting away from the computer sometimes (myself included) and jot stuff down in our Moleskines. Coming to think of it, my best ideas are still sketched out on paper...

I was spring cleaning last weekend and discovered more of my old Transformers! I took Sixshot, my favourite Decepticon, along. Little did he realise what he was in for...

Watched the second Transformers movie with Monoceros today. It was action-packed. With teenage romance and morphing, organic robots, it was a case of American Pie meeting Terminator 2.

Here are things I liked and disliked about the movie, and other insights. Spoilers ahoy...

Optimus Prime firing Megatron This is a really rare sight - Optimus Prime and Megatron team up to save the earth. Taken from Season 1 of the original Transformers. I bought the entire 4 seasons on DVD over the weekend and am still watching it... Click on the photo for a longer story.

And no, I haven't watched the new Transformers movie yet. No kaki. Anybody interested? If not, I'll watch it on my own.

Guess their names!

An update on our Koi pond.

Each of us got to choose 3 Koi (carp fish). I chose an orange-black-silver variety, reason being that I wanted my Koi to take after my favourite group of Transformers.

The first two Koi are purely of those three colours. However, the third Koi had to have a blue sheen.

Can you guess what their names are? Read on to find out the answer.
