Looking for Miku at Ronin Expo [2017]!

23 May 2017

Happy to announce that we’ll be screening Looking for Miku at Ronin Expo! For those of you who don’t know, Ronin Expo is the reboot of Ninja-Con, so we’re happy to be making a (re)appearance there!

We premiered the award-nominated anime fan film in an unfinished state last time so it’ll be the first time the final version of the film will be shown at this venue (admission to Ronin Expo is required to attend). Stay after the show to talk with the filmmakers about the film, con crushes, and other topics! RSVP on Facebook, and hope to see you there!


Ultimate Tetris [2017]

09 May 2017

Sorry for the sporadic updates, but been super lazy busy promoting Looking for Miku! We made an appearance at Coast Con back in March and we’ll be at Ronin Expo (formerly Ninja-Con) this June!

Also, I played the Ultimate Game of Tetris recently, which literally took an entire weekend. ^^; After culling, organizing, and Tetrising all my remaining figures into these boxes, I had to Tetris the boxes themselves into my closet. (The “pillar” in the middle is where the closet doors overlap themselves, since this is a composite photo.) Call it Tetris-ception! And the winner of this game is… YOU! Look for new sales soon, featuring tons of newly unearthed figures!

Can’t wait? Be sure to look at my older sales — anything not marked as “SOLD” is still available! And if you’re looking for anything in particular, be sure to message me through my Fan Page on Facebook or through The Vault on Facebook! 😀

Looking for Miku Tadaima Screening! [2016]

15 November 2016

Thank you to everyone who attended AGC Pictures‘s Looking for Miku panel at PMX and who otherwise supported us by sharing and promoting the event!

Although we had a bit of a late start due to the panel before us running late, we were able to screen the film and do a brief Q&A. I was very happy to have my friend (and one of our leads) Jackson Chong join me! Thanks for all the great questions and I sincerely hope that you enjoyed the film and panel. Please join us again next time!

LEGO/Building Blocks Events [2016]

09 August 2016

It’s been a while since I promoted something that wasn’t one of my own projects (like Looking for Miku, my short film, or Tomo Neko, the maid cafe I was a board member of), and this isn’t a promotion per se. However, since there a couple of similarly-themed events coming up, I wanted to put in my two cents. (All photos from my previous coverage of Brick Boutique.)

I recently received a Groupon offer for an event called Brick Fest Live. I had previously reached out to them since I’d wanted to cover one of their events and help them promote. Little did I know that what I thought would be a private message to their info email would be posted to their public forum, without notice or disclaimer. Pretty shady, if you ask me. Additionally, they closed the “support ticket” without response or even telling me. Wow, how professional! /sarcasm

The Groupon offer I got for Brick Fest Live gives you the privilege of paying “only” $20 to play with Legos for just four hours (regular price of $35). Seriously? What a ripoff! Brick Fest Live is obviously one of those organizations that only care about your money.

I’d rather go to Brick Boutique, which happens at the same exact convention center, where you can do the same thing ALL DAY for only $7 ($12 if you want the early bird entry ticket and FREE if you show up after 4pm). Not only is it cheaper for a longer experience, you also get admission to Robo Toy Fest at the same time! You can’t beat that!

Brick Boutique has all sorts of vendors selling Lego kits both old and new. They also have a building contest and, of course, a FREE building pit where you could take home your creation when you’re done — for FREE! They even have special guests, like voice actors from the Lego video games and designers from Power Rangers!

Forget that lame ripoff Brick Fest Live; if you want to get your Lego fix, go to Brick Boutique instead! The next Brick Boutique will be in October 2016.

There’s plenty of coverage of Brick Boutique in the Archives! Also, check out my Fan Page on Facebook as well as The Vault on Facebook for more of my adventures!
