Friday Night Fights (Round 6)

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another bludgeoning edition of Friday Night Fights! Tonight’s bout features two hard-bitten fighters from the ancient Bionicle school of building. Let’s go to the tale of the tape:

Fighting out of the red corner…the Finnish Firebrand…Pate-keetongu and his “Bladis-Now with sunglasses”.

Bladis - Now with sunglasses + opinions about the new flickr

And fighting out of the blue corner…from the bad streets of the Cybertron…Clark (Banjax) and his “DSCF3960”.


As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pugilistic endeavor by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, galaktek gave his hapless opponent a beating he won’t soon forget to the tune of a 7-3 victory. With 10 vote total, last week’s bout was the most successful of the series: cheers to both Galaktek and LEGOLIZE IT MAN. I don’t usually mention the loser in the wrap-up, but it was a good fight.

    I gotta say bladis…

    I hate to whine here, I really do, but I think both the bionicle community and these two builders were underrepresented here. Both are lumpy and have off proportions (and this is coming from me as a good friend of Banjax).

    That being said, I really really appreciate the effort you’re putting in to represent the bionicle community, and I think it’s great what you’re doing here!

    But maybe next time, you could fine some less-recent, but higher quality builds :P

    As a side note, I’m mortified that you included Banjax’s flickr name on the blog… it was a horrible joke based on a song, and he only changed his name to that as a joke somewhat recently… I desperately hope that it won’t reflect badly on our community, and I think it would be better if you left that part out. Normally his flickr name is just “Banjax2077”, with the name set as ‘Clark’, if you wanna change that.

    ^Thanks for the comment Steve, it is good to have some feedback, even if I don’t agree with it. I happen to like both of these builds, even if each one has aspects that could be approved upon. I frequently use Friday Night Fights as a vehicle to feature builders that might not normally make the blog, or a creation that is good but isn’t quite there. I consider these posts to be somewhat seperate from my usual style and selection criteria. So while these models don’t represent cutting edge Bioncile models…I dig them and they seemed well-matched for the purpose of competition.

    Now, as far as posting his screen name goes, I’ll take your word that it is a joke, and part of many songs…but I don’t see any reason to edit the post unless he were to edit his name or contacts me directly (I’m easy to find on Flickr). I don’t think it reflects poorly on the community in the slightest, I think it may or may not reflect poorly on him, depending on your perspetive on the word.
