Anyways, in my own video game news, I finally beat Super Princess Peach, making it the first, and thus far, only, Super Mario series game that I actually managed to finish. The final boss fight with Bowser was a pain in the butt, but then again, that's pretty much par for the course in Super Mario games.....
Also, I finally got around to building my Kre-O battleship and posted a review on Euro Bricks.... Here's something interesting I found when comparing its hull to the others in my collection:Hull Comparison

Left to right: WIP Guided Missile Heavy Cruiser FNS Gettysburg, Kre-O ship hull to be made into Destroyer at some point in the future, WIP Cruiser, CSS Baton Rouge (gonna have to get at least one or two more Black Pearl hull section pieces from Brick Link) and the Guided Missile Frigate RNJS Tony Soprano... It looks like my guess that the Kre-O hull would make a nice Destroyer hull was spot on.
The only problem with getting more than one, however, is the fact that not only does the set cost $70, but it has the USS Missouri's Hull Number (63) printed on the sides.... Hopefully I can use the old Brasso solution if it comes down to it...
Also, while I find the normal Kreons to be butt ugly, I actually LIKE the aliens: They are built like the Ninjago Skeletons (without the whole bony bit) and have articulated wrists (well, once you replace the drill bits and other random weapons with standard Kreon hands, that is), but with heads that attach like LEGO Star Wars Battle Droid heads.... I'm ashamed to say, but I may have to get some of the Kre-O Battleship line's alien battle packs and/or impulse sets just so I can have some more for my collection.
