Badges? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Badges!

There has been quite a bit of recent debate about who and what a CactusBrick member is.  As we define who and what we are collectively, we need to put forward a common identity.  With tomorrow’s show fast approaching, I figured that there was no better time than the present to get started.

With some feedback from my legal team (Nate), I designed a membership card for 2010-2011.  During the early morning hours, I emailed the graphics to our friend Tom, who graciously donated a bit of cash to print the cards and purchased the needed card holders so they can fit onto a lanyard.

I have eight badges ready and I will bring them to the museum in the morning.  I will give them first to the people who are displaying at the show on a first come, first serve basis.  I look forward to seeing you guys in the morning.

Labor Day Junk Mecha

Flickr member -infomanic- celebrates his day off with this hulking junk mecha for a contest on Mecha Hub. The contrast of the bulky torso and lanky arms is interesting, as well as the incorporation of various Bionicle parts. The shoulder made out of hinges is noteworthy as well. Also impressive is that it fits a minifigue rather comfortably.
