      Whats does Joel even do for his job? Does he just walk around the office, drinking and yelling at people? (BTW I actually kinda want a serous answer :P)

      Answered: Feb 2, 2016

      Joel does a few things. He's the head of the commercial department (the department being he and myself. When those come up, we do whatever is required, shoot the commercial and he generally edits them. Obviously you'll see him on Sportsball, the podcast, shorts etc, so he does a lot of on camera work as well. Also he does quite a bit of travel for conventions, most recently RTXAU and PAX AUS. Aside from that, he produces How To. There's also some things he does that aren't talked about at all for NDA reasons.


      tl;dr. He does a lot of work.

    • The most amazing action figure I've ever seen: Jim Raynor

      1 year ago

      Gilby

      Hey everyone! I'd like to take a minute to talk about a new hobby of mine, and something really incredible I recently got that I'd like to show you.


      Some backstory: (If you don't care about the back story just skip to the pretty pictures)


      Around September Grace and I went to Japan. During that trip I took a liking to figure collecting. Thanks to the influence of my collector friend Nick, I focused that interest into 1:6 scale (roughly 12" average) figures. Now, for those of you who don't know 1:6 scale figures are made by a few different brands with varying positives and negatives. They all have one thing in common though, they are all pricey.


      Now, something being pricey is all about how your brain assigns value to something. So, at first I totally wrote off these $200,$300,$400 figures completely off. Of course, as I started browsing more forums, watching more video reviews and talking to people more, I realized I really wanted to start collecting 1:6 scale figures. During my initial research phase, I stumbled upon a lot of figures that were impressive, but one in particular was completely off-the-charts incredible. That figure was the Sideshow Jim Raynor 1:6 scale figure. Cause, honestly, whats cooler than badass people in power armor? (nothing god damnit)


      Now, where most of these 1:6 scale figures are big, roughly 12", Raynor stands at a whopping 15.5". I know that in your head, that's not an easy thing to picture, but I'll show you an image with scale a bit later.


      So my obsession with Raynor lasted for about a month, until I finally decided I didn't want to spend the obscene amount of money that he cost. Unfortunately, there was always a part of me that really wanted to own him, as he is an incredibly unique and impressive figure even amongst the plethora of other 1:6 scale figures. A little bit before Christmas I happened to stumble on a couple more videos about him and fell in love all over. Even worse, I saw a 30% off sale on Thinkgeek, and I was pretty much ready to pull the trigger. I conferred with my collector friend, Nick, and he talked me off the financial ledge I was about to jump off ensuring me that on New Years there would be a 40% off sale on Sideshow's website.


      So, I held off. I watched it every day, doing more and more research, figuring out in my head how I would display it, the whole thing. Then, of course, it goes waitlisted. Which basically means, you can't actually buy it. You can put your card down and if someone cancels their order, they'll charge you full price and ship it. But it's no guarantee and there would be no way to get the sale price. Of course, in the most first world problem way, I was pouty and sad that I'd never get my holy grail of an action figure.


      Fast forward to Christmas morning. Grace hands me my last gift, and it was none other than Jim Raynor. (In the moment I was absolutely shitting my pants). So, all along Grace was planning to buy it for me, and had about a month prior. Not to mention some of my other wonderful friends pitched in to help out with paying for it. I could not be more thankful.


      Backstory over, here's the figure. Its amazing.


      Here is the what you see when you open the box. Xbox 360 Controller for scale. Even with this picture, it's hard to tell how massive this thing is in person. Trust me, it's huge.

      oD4CS1u.jpg


      Here he is, out of the box and visor up.

      TzaTl83.jpg


      Here he is, all lit up. On the front he has his 4 chest lights, 2 power cells that pull out and light up, along with a light behind his head in the helmet. This thing will light up the room.


      mpi3oR3.jpg


      Little closer to his chest:


      VokFLJ9.jpg


      Here's a close up of his face. The helmet is removable (although it's a pain in the ass and I won't do it) and he has a nice head of hair sculpted in there, along with a separate hair piece you can put on that's a bit longer.


      AtYUm16.jpg


      Here's his abdomen:

      iI7jMOW.jpg


      And his feet. He's got some big ass fucking feet.

      gar26uB.jpg


      Here's an off angle shot so you can get an idea of how bulky he is:

      8u674Wa.jpg


      Same, but from behind:

      dvKsk9m.jpg


      His glorious back. The batteries are behind the panels there with 3 screws. They are a huge bitch to install.

      OvMvGjk.jpg


      Raynor Butt:

      WCjF11R.jpg


      There are little decals and details like this covering every inch of this thing. It's astounding:

      QCJzhi3.jpg


      Top of his back.

      oz6gJfj.jpg


      His vents light up. Probably the most striking thing about this figure for me. I absolutely love them.

      g9q27gu.jpg


      Each finger is individually articulated. Shit.

      qX6aaA2.jpg


      One more closeup of his face, lights on:

      lS16Mt7.jpg


      Here are those power cells again:

      mH4MWhX.jpg


      And now, for the accessories!


      He comes with an absolutely massive sniper rifle, a C-14 Impaler Gauss rifle, and his trusty revolver with (p)leather holster.

      aDZtElg.jpg


      Once again with controller for scale:

      F8ojatM.jpg


      The Impaler has a bayonet...For impaling.


      6YKvXJ6.jpg


      The details on the rest of the gun are just as staggering.

      cFLhihu.jpg


      Iron sights can be flipped up:

      9YWCMS7.jpg


      Oh yeah, this thing FUCKING LIGHTS UP. The batteries are in the magazine.

      Yz754Vq.jpg


      Here's his revolver. Nice faux leather. Incredibly small details on the holster. The straps and buckles all are functional.

      bv3cOnU.jpg


      Here it is, out of the holster:

      sgs0Ni0.jpg


      Wood grain detail. I literally just noticed the little skull there too.

      Baf2eyM.jpg


      The cylinder folds out, and the hammer moves up and down.

      l2Hk8Z8.jpg


      And finally, his sniper. This thing is as long as my arm.

      efgtpRZ.jpg


      The bipod folds down and up.

      ri8c7Wv.jpg


      Both magazines are removable and you can see the bullets within.

      Vp1M3cU.jpg


      And that's Jim! Thanks for reading about my silly new hobby. I'll probably post more the next time I get a figure.

    • My first prop! (M-3 Predator from Mass Effect)

      2 years ago

      Gilby

      Hey everyone!

      To go along with my Mass Effect costume for Dragon Con, I decided to make a prop! I decided to go with the M3 Predator since it seemed relatively straight forward. About a month ago I started to make a template and decided to scrap it because I didn't think I'd have time to make the prop. Fast forward to early last week, I decided I did have time and I googled the template. I happened to stumble upon this:

      http://www.405th.com/showthread.php?t=35894

      Not only did this thread have a great template, but the user showed his build (wayyyyyy better than mine) and techniques which I ended up using myself. Along with his techniques, I have watched a lot of Bill Doran's videos, and this one in particular helped me out:

      Anyways, to get started I snagged the template and traced it onto my foam, which looked like this:

      9kCEEud.jpg?1

      Afterwards, I used a technique I learned from Bill's video, which was to take two pieces of EVA Foam that were larger than the template itself and use a belt sander to sand down the texture on the back side of both of them. Following that, I used contact cement to glue them together.

      Once I had my template traced and my foam pieces together I was ready to cut out the base of my gun. Because of the accuracy required, and having to cut through about an inch of foam at once time I used a band saw. This allowed me to get nice clean cuts at a crisp 90 degree angle.

      hmRqzyX.jpg

      Next up, I cut out the wingy bits that go on the side of the gun. I did this using the bandsaw as well, but only because it was convenient. I sanded down the top edge of them with 80 grit, 120 grit and then 240 grit to give them both a soft curve.

      On the side bits, there is a little bit of a groove so I cut out the shape of the groove, beveled both edges and stuck them back together. After this I stuck them on the gun using contact cement and moved onto the piece on the top of the gun. I took 3 pieces of EVA foam, but cut one of them in half using a band saw which would ensure that the piece only hung over the sides a little bit. I sanded down the textured sides on these and glued them together and again used a bandsaw to cut out the shape.

      N0ILeOM.jpg

      Now that I had the base of my gun, I was ready to start detailing. The user on the 405th had used a wood burning tool to get his details, and it seemed like an effective and accessible way to do things. I went ahead and free-handed the details on with a pen, and went over the lines with various bits from the wood burning tool. It generally worked really well; however, the part that gave me the most trouble was the cylindrical shaped part towards the front of the gun. If I had one complaint during this build, it's that for these parts in specific, the wood burning tool left behind a lot of hardened, burnt foam. This isn't a huge problem, but it did create some extra sanding.

      JJZN3ki.jpg

      nLL7KVu.jpg

      kYtp8oL.jpg?1

      After the details all I had left in terms of construction was the barrels, the sight, and the trigger. I was hoping to use a harder plastic for the sight and trigger, but due to time constraints I decided to use 6mm craft foam. Thankfully, once I plasti-dipped these they became relatively structurally sound. The trigger still has some give, but it's not a huge deal. For the barrels I went to Lowes and bought a 1/2" diameter PVC pipe. I needed two half inch pieces cut and the employee there did so for me, despite thinking it was impossible. I ended up having to sand a bit of the barrels down because they weren't totally flat, but using a Dremel and a pair of pliers it went really smoothly.

      aXm3zyG.jpg?1

      Once I stuck these pieces on, I was ready to prime the gun. I used black Plasti-Dip, which is pretty common amongst cosplayers. It gives a nice flat black coat and seals the foam and readies it for paint. Since the barrel and grip were already supposed to be black, I just stuck with the Plasti-Dip layer which was perfect.

      r1xN4G8.jpg

      To get the brushed metal look I used some Silver Leaf Rub-N-Buff and brushed it on using a dry brush and some light strokes. I used the same Rub-N-Buff to add some distress/weathering to the gun by lightly brushing around some edges and using it to highlight some of the details.

      Edl4hDv.jpg?1

      AYk4SI9.jpg

      After this, the only thing left was to do the decals and the "lights". For the "lights", I didn't want to get too crazy and add actual lights, so I opted just to paint them red, which I think is just fine. For the decals I was intending to draw up some stencils in photoshop, but my girlfriend Zonbi was gracious enough to offer to freehand them (which she is incredibly good at).

      After the decals were on, the gun was done! Here's the finished product.

      CNsyoftUcAINSsL.jpg


      I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I'm really glad I gave it a shot. I definitely don't think it's perfect, and if I had some more time I could have made it even nicer, but overall I have no complaints for my first prop. As someone who isn't very crafty/artistic, I'd highly recommend trying something like this. There's a ton of people like Bill Doran out there that post great tutorials and resources for you to get started. Go give it a shot!

    • Cosplay Progress #1: Mass Effect N7 Armor

      2 years ago

      Gilby

      So, my first cosplay was Stoick from How To Train your Dragon 2. Although I helped make the costume, all of the sewing and large parts of the armor was done by my lovely girlfriend Zonbi.

      This time around I wanted to attempt to make something myself. Throughout this process I've been lucky enough to have her there to show me techniques, help me size stuff, and just generally being an awesome mentor while still allowing me to actually make the costume. Since she already wanted to make a fem shep, we figured it'd be fun for me to make a male shep to go along with her and we could be badass space guys together.

      Early on I didn't take as many pictures as I should have, but here's my progress so far:

      This was my 4-5th attempt at a gauntlet (and it wasn't my last!). I suppose it's important to say that this entire costume is made from foam. I used two types, foam floor mats (EVA Foam) and yoga mats from Five Below. For the majority of the pieces I used the yoga mat foam since it's pretty easy to work with but towards the end I used more EVA foam, and I think I'm partial to the thickness and rigidity of it, so I'll probably work more with that in the future.

      Here's some EVA Mats: http://www.amazon.com/We-Sell-Mats-Interlocking-An...

      So, for the majority of the pieces I would cut out the basic 2d shape, and then cover it in one of two types of fabrics: two way strech vinyl with carbon fiber pattern, 2 way strech vinyl that was matt black. The process we ended up coming up with (after failing epically a dozen times) was to take each piece just after it was cut (prior to shaping or gluing to anything else) and trace it out on the fabric with approximately 1-2 inches of room. After that we would cut that piece of fabric out and use a spray adhesive (super 77) on the smooth size of the foam (the side that we were gluing onto the fabric) and then lay the foam onto the back side of the fabric. Once that was done we would cut the fabric around the edges and fold it inwards, and glue it either using contact cement or hot glue, which was a huge pain in the ass.

      On the gauntlet below, you can see one of my failed attempts. I had the foam already formed and in the shape of a gauntlet. not only that, but i had sprayed the fabric AND the foam with super 77. It ended up being bubbly, sticky and gross. But it was a damn good learning process.



      Like the gauntlets, I made multiple attempts at getting my shins right. This was one of my failed pieces where I was just trying to take it section by section around my leg. It was dumb and didn't work, but I eventually figured it out. Don't be afraid to screw this stuff up, foam is really cheap, and it's worth trying it a few times until you get it right.


      Yay! A successful piece. This is one of my hip pieces, yet to be heat formed. I think this was one of my first completed pieces in terms of construction, and I was really excited to have something I was proud of. This was done using the same foam + vinyl application process, along with some craft foam for the details. Woo!

      3XAwTPd.jpg


      Zonbi's fem shep wig came in, so naturally I wore it.



      This was my first significant chunk of progress. From top to bottom: Hips, Thighs, and Shins. Obviously none of these were heat formed but I was happy to have my leg armor done with.


      This is my abdomen armor. Honestly, I wasn't 100% happy with it, but once I weathered it I ended up really liking how it looked.


      Here's my chest armor with the abdomen attached. It had yet to be heat formed, but the general construction was done. I had a lot of fun making the chest. Also, messy bathroom! (It's cleaned now calm down.)


      So, being unhappy with the gauntlet I decided to redo it. After a week or so of my confidence being shot, I made this and it really brought me back around. Cosplay is not easy, and it can definitely be hard on your self confidence, but just remember that whatever you make will be awesome, because it's yours and you made it.

      The remnants of my old gauntlet became a cat bed.


      And so begun the long 4 days of building my back piece. This took forever, but I am so pleased with how it turned out.


      Details! (This took me an entire night.)

      This is the neck part of things, partially heat formed.

      Things taped in place, how it will be assembled.

      LED light test.

      Now I'm working on the weathering and painting. Here's some of that! The 'scuffs' are done by simply brushing on some silver spray paint to make it look like the actual paint has been scratched off in battle. Pretty neat!



      You can see my belt in this shot at the bottom!

      This piece goes on my lower back, I'm really happy with this in all facets. The details took a while, but I'm proud of how they look.

      And finally, here's a bicep, my gauntlets and my shoulder pieces with the scuffs in place. Seeing the painted pieces with the scuffs really helps me to see it all start coming together.


      That's it for now! I have most of my other pieces scuffed, but that's not it for weathering. I have to make it look dirty with some black and some brown applied by slathering it on and sponging it off. After I'm done weathering I'll get it strapped and velcroed to my undersuit and it'll be ready to go!

      Vin Diesel looks badass but sounds like he's inhaled helium and you look badass and also have a badass voice so...I guess what I am trying to say is you are better than Vin Diesel.

        3 years ago

        after my first playthrough, once I had the mechanics down a little bit better, I did a mage. It was awesome, but I found the game a little too easy (if that's possible.) I did a Strength-Faith build that was a lot of fun.

        The mage was probably my 3rd playthrough. It was nice to be able to 1-2 shot bosses, so probably that.

      In your let's plays with Joel you guys split the controls in half, right? So I was wondering if you guys plan on doing a "Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons" let's play, since the controls are divided by default.

      So, have you inherited Joel now? Did Jack come up to you and say "I can't deal with this anymore. He's yours now."? Was that how it went down? I'm sorry for your burden. So very sorry.

      From head of security of RTX, to hired at Roosterteeth, to co-staring in a new and popular let's play with @Joel. I'm so happy for you, and I hope for many more good things for you in the future.

      newer version
      I am interested in providing Monty and the rest of Team RWBY, with ideas and was wondering if you could recommend me. I am putting one of my earlier ideas below. Tell me if it is any good.
      This is the updated version
      A guy named Lan Jingshen, he uses a pair of long nun chucks with guns at the ends, the nun chucks can connect into a staff, and when connected the guns gain more fire power and can fire in the directions the tips are pointing at. Also it can become a bow if he bends the chains at the right angles. However, his true forte is hand to hand combat. He has high mastery of Aura (Meditates daily to train his Aura), his semblance is manipulation of pure energy, and when using his full strength, blue lines cover his entire body and he gains enhanced abilities. He has messy black hair with azure highlights, wears a pair of glasses that change into a mask when he begins combat, has a blue and black trench coat along with a pair of black pants with two blue steaks running down the sides, and when fighting takes off the coat in this case he wears a blue and black tank top, Also wears black gloves. Height wise he would be a bit taller than Yang. Body is covered with scars of various shapes and sizes due to his frequent fights with High level Grimm. Large tattoo on his back (I’ll send you a rough sketch of it if you like the character). His combat style is formless, and draws from a myriad of martial arts styles. He also has a pet Golden Retriever, the golden retriever enjoys stealing other people’s laundry, and always tries to kiss up to people.
      I would also like to put in his personality in case it is (and some back story too). A calm cool guy, who's always the peacemaker, and is very devoted to whatever he sets his mind to, he would also be very learned, polite, and versatile ( able to use most weapons if necessary) Doesn't speak very loudly, and is sometimes ignored. Very good at making friends and is rather social, in a detached way ( but although there are many who he calls friend, before he met team RWBY there were none he truly believed to be his friend, except his master). Believes that the best way for a person to become stronger and learn is for them to experience things themselves, so he often keeps knowledge to himself, even if it would be beneficial for the other person to know. He is wise far beyond his years, one of the main reasons he came to Beacon was to find that “special someone†his grandpa always told him about. I think it would be humorous if he developed a crush on Yang, and as a result becomes very awkward and a bit clumsy whenever she is near. He also trains in a lot of his spare time in fact his daily regime is kill 10 powerful Grimm a day. Back story is that he woke up by the sea when he was 4 with no memory, he is found by the nearby villagers and is taken care of, during this time he almost lived in local library, and educated himself there. He later meets a man who would become his teacher; a white tiger Faunus named Brom Silverfang, who was a founding member of White Fang, but left after some of the organizations more brutal operations. Lan makes his nun chuk/staff/ gun from parts found in a dump in a city he travels to. He also learns a variety of skills on his travels (cooking, clothes making, engineering, zoology, etc.) but has almost zero pop culture knowledge. During his travels, he joined White Fang for a few months and also was employed by the Schnee company for a few years (currently owns some of its high value stocks), in both cases he learned many of the secrets in both organizations. He also has experience in the underground crime world (learning the ways of the street). I think it would also be fun if at one point he encountered Yang and Ruby before they were adopted, because this could help them connect later in. Later in his travels with his master (when he is around 15) he discovers an ancient piece of technology called INDEX, and after gaining more mastery of his AURA he uses INDEX as a base to create a weapon called the ERUDITE ARMORY, which can transform into any weapon he knows how to make (able to fill the sky with a menagerie of different armaments). It is very heavy and difficult to use so he doesn't use it often, because of the massive amount of aura it consumes while in use. His master is later killed by a giant Grimm know as Shade the Eighth Terror (Shade cannot be harmed by purely physical attacks, and that is all Brom had , even though they were super powerful physical attacks that were able to cleave mountains), but by that time Lan was skilled enough to kill it with his Aura infused ERUDITE ARMORY. When the Shade died, part of its essence infected Lan, and slowly eats away at his soul, because of this his AURA was greatly weakened and now can only use the ERUDITE ARMORY for 30 seconds a day. However, Brom’s soul entered into Lan as well and helps him keep SHADE at bay (the downside is Lan now has the crazy, perverted old man yammering at him 24/7). Was noticed by BEACON and gained a combat scholarship just like RUBY after saving a group of elite hunters from high class monsters (this was before he battled with the SHADE, which took place 3 months before he was going to transfer to BEACON). Currently he is much weakened due to the SHADE’s essence infecting him (sometimes causing to lose control of himself and turning into a half-Grimm state), his current combat ability (without using the armory) is slightly higher than Pyrrha’s. Right now is trying to control the Grimm inside.
      He is 17 or 18 years old.
