Friday Update: The princess meets the prodigy!

With my website being active, I'm ready to make weekly updates per my new weekly chapters for Super Disney Bros.

Writing for Merida from Disney/Pixar's Brave has been a fantastic experience. Working with her accent, character design, and emotional depth is such a fun challenge. She moves from different settings and finds new allies and villains. Not all Disney characters will get along right away. It has to fit their personalities at the right moment. A common enemy is a great way to expedite said moment.

I felt that Hiro would be arrogant not just because of his brilliant scientific mind but because he does not expect much from Merida, given her medieval appearance. Baymax is adorable and perfect for helping to establish why these kids feel the way they do. Petty differences aside, one antsy decision for the truth would invite danger but also a chance to understand one another.

Let me know what you think of Chapter Ten: The Genius!

My POP collection begins...

Lucio, the freedom-fighting Brazilian DJ, was the first character I played in Overwatch. It was a simple yet fun, knowing that I could passively support my teammates by healing them and boosting their speed through the thumping power of music. Plus, Lucio's optimistic personality shined as bright as his neon-colored gear. Given the massive love from the online gaming fandom and convention attendees, I had to guess...does POP sell their characters as adorable figures?

The answer was yes but not for all the heroes, which makes sense. They were hard to find and probably snatched by scalpers. Thankfully, a new wave of figures were coming and included my favorite Overwatch hero.

After preordering and handling my patience, I secured my prized possession. In the age of social media, I had to brag about it on Twitter and Instagram. I even got a response from Lucio's voice actor, Jonny Cruz, who agreed to sign the box if I ever met him.

I want to add more beloved characters to my collection but I must not be hasty. I want to appreciate each new addition and make the right choice for future purchases; otherwise I might fall victim to an addition similar "amiibola" in which I hunted down multiple Nintendo Amiibo figurines.

For those who collect POP figures, what was your first figure? What is your favorite? You know you have one. Don't give me that "I can't choose. It's like Sophie's Choice. Wa-wa-wa!" :)
