LINE is kind of Naver's version of WhatsApp, an instant messaging application for smartphones and PCs. Instant messaging isn't the only thing you can do with LINE though, and being a Japanese company, naturally Naver created lots of über-cutesy characters in their Sticker Shop to promote their product, like Cony the bunny! ;o)
After repainting some papercraft Warhammer 40K models (Patoroch's Thunderbolt and Lightning Strike aircraft), Michael is back with a new Total Annihilation unit, the Core Instigator! ;o)

In the Shingeki No Kyojin series ("Attack on Titan"), people are living in cities with great walls to protect themselves against the monstrous Titans, but if those walls don't help, there's no other choice than to use an extremely sharp sword like this one!

"Saved By The Bell" was a 1989-1993 sitcom (which is still often shown on reruns!) about an American high school with now famous characters like Jessie Spano (who was always protesting something), A.C. Slater (the muscular hunk), Zack Morris (who was always scheming the gang into but in the end also out of trouble again - most of the times...), Kelly Kapowski (Tiffany Amber-Thiessen, the pretty all-American girl next door), Lisa Turtle (the trendy girl) and Samuel Powers (better known as the nerdy "Screech", who had a crush on the trendy Lisa).
"G.O.B." (George Oscar Bluth, here seen on his Segway) and Tobias Fünke (trying to be a Blue Men Group member here) are two characters from the American sitcom "Arrested Development".

"Salts" is not a vigor itself, but a substance that allows the use of vigors (like "Undertow", "Murder of Crows" or "Shock Jockey"); when it runs out, you can't use the special powers of the vigors anymore...!
After the super-heavy tanks Maus and Ratte (and all the other ones!), here are two more papercraft tanks from "World of Tanks": a Soviet IS-3 and a British Vickers Medium Mk I!

NASA's Kepler space telescope ran into trouble this week, the cause of which might be a problem with the gyroscopic reaction wheels which are supposed to hold the spacecraft steady while it takes pictures of distant stars...
Besides being the Norse god of thunder, Thor is also a comic book hero as part of The Avengers! ;o)
Poethetortoise made a new weblog which will be all about Adventure Time papercrafts models, and the first one is Tree Trunks, Finn and Jake's pygmy elephant friend!
