Pacfic Rim Art of Book!

5 months to go still until the unleashing of giant 'kaiju' vs 'Jaeger' battles of Pacific Rim, but the marketing machine is starting to stomp it's way into action. Amazon has posted a pre-order for 'Pacific Rim: Man, Machines and Monsters' . I'm sure there will be some of my artwork as well as the many other very talented artists involved in building this full Del Toro world.
not mine but cool!

Sure to be full of artwork, behind the scenes and post-production work, this book is the start of many PacRim items sure to be lining your (and mine) selves. :)
   Recently they showed some toys by NECA, and announced that Sideshow will also be making highly detailed versions.

So sit back and let the 12 year old inside of you be ready for epic-ness from the master, Guillermo Del Toro.
Also check in on the 'Pan Pacific Defense Corps' site for more sitings and info. And join the PacRim facebook page to get the latest!

Happy birthday BLUE!

After driving one on the autobahn in 2003, and waiting 14 months for the U.S. version... 9 years ago I took delivery of this beautiful 2004 Deep Metallic Blue VW R32. Haldex 4motion all wheel drive, 3.2 liter VR6 with 250hp, 6 speed manual, OZ wheels, Koenig Race seats, and the first Golf with fully independent rear suspension are just a few of the differences this car had over the then current GTI.
With only a small number of issues, all covered under warranty, this car has been the best car I've ever owned. It's also the best sounding car out there, for under 30 grand. I've been pulled over by motorcycle cops who pull up next to me after tailing me for miles, just to say "thanks, that thing sounds awesome". I've hauled tons of various cargo, got married, had 2 kids, moved several times, tracked it several times at Thunderhill and Streets of Willows and made many trips to and from work over those 9 years. It still looks, runs and sounds like new.
   Happy Birthday Blue!
