The Convention Quadrant: Mighty Morphen Panel from RangerStop 7!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I hope you all are safe. I have been suffering from major allergies since yesterday and my ears have been stuffy so I’m trying to get better. Anyways, now onto the post!

Mighty Morphen Panel from RangerStop 7!

Now it’s the final panel video and it was worth the wait and it’s the Mighty Morphen Panel from last year’s RangerStop.

I remembered being seven years old and watching Saturday morning cartoons and once those were finished on Fox I see a witch come out a dumpster and doing it to a metal riff doing her signature, “At last after 10,000 years I’m free! It’s time to conquer Earth!” Then talking head goes, “Alpha! Call on five teenagers with attitude!” At that age you see this and my thoughts are, “This is so cool!” And I was hooked like many kids at that age in the early 90’s and loved every minute of it. This panel did and the entire convention did bring those memories back to me because of remembering all the times I watched Power Rangers and how even girls can kick butt like the guys was amazing. Heck, I did enjoy all the episodes with Lord Zedd since he was awesome. Besides the nostalgia for this series, it was great to hear the cast talking about their memories of being on the set, their favorite episodes, and how fun they had getting to be heroes on a kids show. Gondras did get to go up and ask our holiday memory question since it was close to the holidays after all and you will get to hear the answers since I did record that bit on my phone, sorry for having it so low. Don’t worry for RangerStop 8 and hoping if we get up to Atlanta for the new RangerStop Pop Convention in Atlanta we will have our brand spanking new video camera and tripod! So enjoy the video!

Well guys that is it for this post and all of our RangerStop 7 footage! I loved every minute of being at the convention and it was great to meet the people who made the casts for each seasons so great and hear their stories. Hoping that we get to go to Atlanta next year since now the new dates are in March for that one and it is the twentieth anniversary for Time Force! Yes, it is my all-time favorite season, can’t help it! And also hoping to do this year’s Orlando Convention in November! I want to thank the RangerStop staff for putting on a great convention and glad we got to cover it and hope we continue with it! Thank you from all of us at Nerdy Shique Universe!

The Web Series Quadrant: RWBY Volume 7 Review!Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! It’s time for my long awaited review of this!

RWBY Volume 7 Review!

Disclaimer: This review is based on thoughts and observations of the lead writer of this blog! Please respect her thoughts because she has different opinions from people on YouTube. You have been warned!

I know the seventh volume of RWBY ended in February but due to work and the CoVid19 pandemic rising I didn’t get the chance to do it. I finally got to sit down and re-watch the season and here we go!

Team RWBY arrives in Atlas to not so open arms. All thanks to the ship they arrived on being seen as stolen they are welcomed by Ace Operatives who are an elite group of huntsmen and huntresses appointed by General Ironwood. Despite the cold welcome, they are warmly welcomed by an old friend who was presumed dead since the Vital Festival, Penny. Once meeting up with Ironwood again they are now given new jobs to work with the Ace Operatives to be seen as trusted and handed their licenses and in on a secret expansion of Amity Stadium to help reunite everyone in Remnant. Even though Ironwood wants to keep this a secret danger arises when Dr. Watts and Teri an come to Atlas to cause trouble for him and try to frame Penny and not only that cause disruption in an election for the Council Head between Jacques Schni and Robin Hill. Besides the troubles in Mantle, Weiss has come back home to not only a cold shoulder from her father but a warm hug from her sister Winter and that her sister may take on the powers of the Winter Maiden since times have gotten worse since Ironwood is trying to find ways of protecting Atlas and Mantle from another attack by Salem. Will they be able to keep her away or will the Grimm and Salem’s allies be able to take down Ironwood his friends including Team RWBY?

Thoughts: This was a better volume because it did continue from where Volume 6 left off and felt like it was a better story. Even though Volume 6 had some added back story but here it felt like it brought back what we enjoyed with the early volumes of RWBY or at least me. I have been noticing people on YouTube have been complaining about some parts of this volume and I agree a little bit and disagree with most of it. How so?

Penny: First off Penny was brought back and I was hoping to see her returning after what had happened to her in Volume 3. Some people think she should have stayed dead but to me I had a feeling that she would be back at some point and this is where she did return since Atlas was where she was created. Got to remember folks, Atlas is known for their military, tech, and dust mining in the world of Remnant and being able to bring her back was not hard even though it was revealed later that someone’s aura was used to help her be brought back. Hey, you have to get it from somewhere. Even though she was treated as the protector of the city but we did get to see more of her in a newer light this time since I kind of felt like despite being able to hang with Ruby and the gang during the Vital Festival she was able to hang out with them again this time but as a helper. She did help with the enemies in this and even with the Winter Maiden, which I will touch upon later, but I did like how she was brought back for this volume and I did like her from the start. I wonder how she will play in the next volume after I talk about the Maiden role this time.

Ironwood: With all the things that have taken place I did notice that Ironwood did show that he was pretty mistrusting towards a lot of people. Yes, he did keep a huge secret and yes he was trying to do it to protect everyone but he was acting very rash in order to do that. I did notice it when Team RWBY and the rest of JNPR meeting up with him that he was holding a brave front but inside you can tell that he is afraid of what may happen if he tries to trust anyone. As in how is he able to share his trust with Qrow this time? How will he trust Team RWBY? Will he be able to trust Oscar since he is the newest Ozpen reincarnate? It made the story seem to flow smoothly until the end when everything started to fail when he noticed that things are starting to fall apart as in that even though his team of Ace Operatives were the strongest but there was something that made them vulnerable and open to the enemy. I also did like Oscar’s philosophical talks with Ironwood in this one because he was able to try and reason with him knowing that Ozpen could say the same to him since the theme here is fear and that everyone, including Ironwood, has it and it’s hard to escape from it even when Salem is the one bringing it. I wonder how it will continue in the next volume with Ironwood since someone did say he was going to be on the death list next but who knows how that will play out.

Team RWBY: I felt that this volume made them stronger because not only they were able to get newer weapons, also new looks, but also trained by the Ace Operatives. I also feel like their personalities also improved. Some people were ragging on how Yang was not the same as she was from the first volume, especially looking out for Ruby, which I kind of see it but I am also noticing it’s that Ruby has grown up and same with Yang after she had lost her arm in Volume 3 and found out that her mom, Raven, is the Spring Maiden and that they can still work together but at the same time can make themselves stronger when working on their own. On top of that, I noticed how Ruby has taken more of a leader stance since she is the title character after all and since the past few volumes it didn’t feel that way but since the change and now knowing what Salem is capable of she needed to step up! I did like how she gave orders in how to handle the dinner party Weiss’ father was putting together and the election was probably rigged and that she had Weiss go in to find that evidence to prove it. Plus, she did step up when Ironwood was starting to break under the pressure towards the end of the volume. Despite what others think I feel that she has gotten stronger and same with Weiss since she wasn’t too happy about coming back to Atlas but she had to with her team. I did like how she stood up to her father towards the beginning of the volume since he noticed how she cared for her friends but said that they are family to her. I did find it interesting how her mother, on the other hand, pointed to her that she left Whitley, her brother, alone. I have feeling that may play into the story somehow but we will see! Blake, let me see, I have noticed this volume she has become more out spoken since Volume 5! She did get a new bold hair cut but she did have a change in personality even around Yang since now it looks like they’re dating. Yes! Even though she did have that fight with Adam towards the end of last volume which I am seeing that she is starting to get over it and becoming better as the volume rolls on.

Winter Maiden: In this volume we get to meet the Winter Maiden finally and her name is Freya. Unlike the spring and Fall Maidens losing their lives young, Freya has reached her old age and this time she needs to pass her power on and it ended in an interesting way. Sorry for spoiler’s people but if you have not seen this volume I would say watch before you read! At first Winter was ordered by Ironwood to take the power since he thought it would be able to help her be able to use the Staff of Creation but unfortunately due to Cinder getting in the way the power went to someone else! It was Penny who ended up with the power.

I decided to go back to the Maidens Wiki to see if my hunch was correct about what had happened and it was which Freya gave her the power. I find it interesting though because isn’t Penny an artificial human with a soul? I even remembered that the way the power is passed onto another young woman is that either they are in the dying maiden’s thoughts or the maiden deems them worthy. With Raven it was out of nowhere while Cinder took it on due to greed, with Penny, on the other hand, I felt that Freya knew that cinder was not the one but waiting for someone else who was worthy and that was Penny. I think Freya noticed the aura inside of her and that it was pure and passed it onto her and I found this interesting since now we have her as Winter, Raven as Spring who is a bandit, and Cinder who took the Fall powers, I wonder what about Summer?

Thoughts on Summer: This brought me to this point since I kind of have been wondering like a few others on who might be the Summer Maiden? She hasn’t been revealed yet since now the circumstances with Salem are changing and things are getting worse. My thought is that did Salem kidnap her? It is a possibility because during the second to last episode she brought up Ruby’s mom and of course her name is Summer. I am wondering could she be alive and did she kidnap her? Because up to this point I remembered Ruby mentioning that her mom didn’t come back from her final mission and there is a possibility she may have had a run in with Salem. I am not sure if she had the Summer powers but if she did then it may have been passed on or Salem would have taken them since she wants the Maiden Relics in the first place. Either or I am hoping we can see the Summer Maiden next volume or if my theory would be partially right. Let’s see how that happens!

What Do I Want to See in Volume 8? Where to start? Definitely Summer Maiden because of how things are going down and I feel as though she may make an appearance or my thoughts may be the idea of how it will be revealed. And of course seeing how Penny deals with her now new position of Winter Maiden. I have a feeling that Ironwood won’t like it since he was hoping Winter would take them on. Also, this will still bug me since I feel like it was forgotten, the dreams of Pyhra coming back since those appeared in Volume 4 and hoping to get to see if those appear again if they are still a message.

Rating: 5 Shooting Star Paws Out of 5! I know I didn’t get to put a real rating but this deserves the five because it did continue the story from the last volume. Some people have been talking about the negatives and how this series is not the same as we remembered. Yes, Vol. 4 and 5 seemed to be the filler volumes and it did drag the story a bit not focus on Ruby herself but I feel that 6 and 7 fixed the story since we got to see some back story behind Remnant and what Salem is planning and that we got to see how badly Ironwood is afraid but didn’t want to show it and tried to make things safe but there was an opening for things to go bad. Plus it did bring back an old character and it built our favorite characters up to be better in this one so I feel that the story is stronger and it will get stronger, hopefully, with the next volume.

Also, I want to give major props to Christina V. as Robin since she did a really job playing this character during this volume. She did an amazing performance and I enjoyed every chapter of it!

Well guys that is it for this review! Sorry if I haven’t given this blog much love since of course we are going through a major pandemic and times gotten busy after all. I will get back to here and of course I do have the podcast to do on top of it. And then of course I do have one more RangerStop video to put here and that will be next! Until next time!

The Convention Quadrant: John Tui Experience from RangerStop 7!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another post!

John Tui Experience from RangerStop 7

Well guys, it is time for the second to last video and that is the John Tui Panel from last year’s RangerStop. I bet you’re wondering why I didn’t interview him. Well, the thing was when we ask him for one he told us to drop by his panel on that Sunday which we were allowed to ask any questions that way rather than a one on one interview since he was also super busy that weekend. It’s understandable and we were cool with it and did appeared. I did get to ask a question but it was the very last question. And very lucky with that.

What was the question? Well, I was inspired by Dan Southworth with this one and now to turn back time to when I went to AFO 2010 when Tobi and I were meeting Reuben to get things signed and I heard Dan go, “Nice golf club!” Towards my cane and told him what it was. To be fair it was short and the table went up to my grip so he couldn’t see the length. A few years later he ended up playing the character Kenshi in the Mortal Kombat web series and his character was blind. Interesting that one of my favorite rangers got to play a blind character and lately I do agree that blind people should play themselves in media roles but Dan was a sighted actor to get that chance. I decided to ask John if he were to get the opportunity, would you play a blind character. I figured with how awesome he was as Doggie Kruger on S. P. D. and yet the Japanese are still finding the costume awesome he had to wear by the way, I thought it would be interesting what he would say for his answer which I accepted.

And now for a serious note! I am not sure if you guys have heard but Omni Fandom Expo has been postponed. As everyone has heard that the Corona Virus has been all over the news and new cases have appeared even here on the coast during Bike Week. Omni was ready to keep going but due to circumstances they have decided with the hotel and the city of Kissimmee that it has to be pushed back. It sucks but understandable since this is a big issue for everyone even if so many are panicking at the moment but I would have to say is that please wash your hands guys, use hand sanitizer when you can’t reach a sink, also use anti-bacterial wipes need be since I was prepared for Omni since I’m having a shipment of camping grade wipes from Amazon arriving this weekend but what can we do? Just do what the C. D. C. says and even stay home if you’re having any cold symptoms yourself because this is a contagious virus. Yes some people have died from it but all I have to say with the right care you will get through it. Anyone affected by this please go to your nearest hospital and stat! I would say don’t let it get worse if you’re really feeling sick. Anyways, everyone stay safe out there and of course wash your hands. Now we have to wait for new dates for this convention and hoping we can make it since we have a lot to bring you to this blog. I will keep you all updated on the new dates and anything changes.

I will be doing my post on my Ipsy Glam Bag so stay tuned guys! Next panel is the final one and that is the Mighty Morphen panel! Stay tuned!

The Convention Quadrant: Power Rangers In Space & Lost Galaxy Panel from RangerStop 7!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another video!

Power Rangers In Space and Lost Galaxy Panel from RangerStop 7!

Continuing with the RangerStop panel videos for you all! This is the Power Rangers in Space and Lost Galaxy panel since these are two of my top favorite seasons in the entire run of Power Rangers. And yes it’s partly due to having space in their names! I did ask a question and that is to Christopher Kayman Lee and wishing Melody Perkins was also there to answer too because it would have been a fun answer from her and that is who would win a fight? Andros or Karone? Because it made sense since they both were rangers themselves even though Kerone became Lost Galaxy Pink the next season. I will ask her that if she does come back for another year if we do press again and I have met her and she is a complete sweetheart by the way. Christopher did answer my question so just enjoy what he has to say and I do have to say this panel did bring my love for both seasons back since In Space did end the Zordon era but it did bring new villains as time goes on and newer teams to take on that evil even with the start of Lost Galaxy and of course we had the man made Light Speed Rescue team. Anyways enjoy the video!

That is it for this post! I am going to try and post the rest of these videos in time for Omni Fandom Expo since we did have to get these edited and rendered for you all and this time we won’t rely on phones which did bring some delays on two videos so it’s all video cameras from here on out! And of course, make sure you listen for Nerdy Shique Transmissions this week because I will be doing an episode talking about my experiences at Omni over the years it has been a convention and of course I do recommend going! I am still waiting on my box subscriptions to arrive so stay tuned for everything! Oh right! Another RWBY review to come soon!

The Convention Quadrant: Legendary Voice Actors Panel at RangerStop 7!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back for another post!

Legendary Voice Actors Panel at RangerStop 7

Another panel video for you all and it is the Legendary Voice Actors Panel from RangerStop last year! Two of the guests they had were Samantha Newark who played Jem on Jem & the Holograms and Wally Wingert who you’ve seen my interview on YouTube and here on the blog! This was a very interesting panel because we get to not only hear Sam’s adventure in becoming a voice actress but also Wally’s adventure too. I did get to ask a question and had to re-iterate it a bit because it was kind of lost. I asked about how they feel about live-action adaptations of classic cartoons? I came up with the idea due to how Jem & the Holograms was adapted into live-action and well it didn’t get a lot of rave reviews and same with many others like Josie & the Pussycats as an example due to how the movie didn’t have a good script if I remembered one answer was said but you get to hear their answers. I do agree since you will see and hear my question in the John Tui Experience video that if it is a bad script then the movie wouldn’t do so well and can see why other cartoon live-action adaptations weren’t really made for the big screen. I did like the one Scooby Doo movie that Cartoon Network had a few years back on how the gang got together and wished they continued with that. Anyways, all tangents aside, just enjoy the rest of the video!

That is it for this post! I will get the next panel video up but I do have another book review for you guys so stay tuned!

The Convention Quadrant: Magical Source! Mystic Force! Panel from RangerStop 7!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with a new post!

Magical Source! Mystic Force! Panel from RangerStop 7!

Sorry for the wait on panel videos because we had a bit of trouble getting them off the SD on Gondras’ phone and he was going through laptop issues and of course we were also preparing for Omni on top of it but managed to talk with Damean in getting them together. The first panel up is the Mystic Force Panel and this was a long one because there were a lot of things being talked about in this one even it split into four parts for this one.

I did remember Linkara saying this was one of the weaker seasons of Power Rangers but I am kind of curious to watch it after this panel since my ex did watch the Japanese version, Magiranger, but am a sucker for the American version since that was what I grew up on. I did start watching Wild Force so it will be a bit before I get to this season. What took place? Watch and you will find out!

That is it for this post guys! More panel videos to come since we have gone to a majority of these during that convention. WHat’s next? I did get my BoxyCharm and Glam Bag Plus earlier today so I will be posting my BoxyCharm first! Until next time!

The Interview Quadrant: Aljin Abella from Power Rangers Jungle Fury!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with our last interview from RangerStop!

Interview with Aljin Abella from Power Rangers Jungle Fury!

Our last interview from RangerStop 7 is with Aljin Abella who played Theo on Power Rangers Jungle Fury! I haven’t watched the season yet since I’m still finishing Time Force at the moment, hey work keeps me busy, but will get to it eventually since it does have a blind master, Master Swoop. And the interesting part his character is his student! I can’t wait to see that since I only remembered clips when Linkara did his History of Power Rangers episode on this season. What did I ask Aljin? Watch and find out!

Well that is the end of our interviews from last year’s RangerStop. It was great getting to interview who we got a chance to. Even though we were hoping to get more but we did run out of time and there were so many great panels on top of it. We did give some of the people our business cards so they can get in contact with us for any Skype interviews since it’s been a while on there and that gave us a new interview experience. If not, there is always RangerStop 8 in Orlando which I can’t wait to see who they bring. I hope more people from Time Force and Lost Galaxy since those are two of my favorite seasons. We will be getting our panels edited since Gondras’ phone split them up into multiple parts and I did record some things on my end so hold tight for all that. Next will start my Subscription Satellite since according to the tracking BoxyCharm and GB Plus are supposed to be here this week. So, stay tuned!

The Interview Quadrant: Christopher Khayman Lee from Power Rangers In Space!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe and I am back with another RangerStop Interview and some really good news! Let’s go!

Interview with Christopher Kayman Lee from Power Rangers in Space!

Rounding off the Power Rangers in Space cast from last year’s RangerStop is of course Christopher Kayman Lee! Wanted to interview him at RangerStop 6 but since the red rangers were in demand that year didn’t get a chance but this year we did. Even though I counted this as one of my favorite moments but I do have another but have to get to that video when it’s up because it made me realize it was a great one. Anyways, since I have bene a fan of this season due to the space bits like with Lost Galaxy, I was glad to watch every moment and did enjoy “Countdown to Destruction” myself. What did I ask him? Watch and find out.

We did try to get Melody who played Astronomer but she did leave early on that Sunday so hoping if she comes back this year to Orlando we get a chance again. I wouldn’t mind also interview the other three rangers from this season too if they also get invited. Let’s see what 2020 brings to Orlando!

Now onto an important announcement! As you saw in our last post I mentioned briefly about upgrading this blog and we did! Today starts a new beginning for Nerdy Shique Universe and that is we are now a full on website domain! Yay! For the past seven years of running this blog, I haven’t had the funds to upgrade and now that working helped get me to this point alongside having all the hard work with going to some of the conventions we had press opportunities at like RangerStop, Omni Fandom Expo since they found us, and even MetroCon, MythiCon and a few others. Plus with posting about Ipsy, also reviews on items, and so on, it was time to kick it up a notch. So, I thank you all for supporting this blog as long as it has been alive. Without it I wouldn’t be where I am today and how it led me to my job in teaching Adaptive Technology since I use it to operate this thing. Now that it’s all upgraded and raring to go? What is more to come? I did mention the Favorites being changed, also that means Convention Spotlight will also change alongside Convention Impossible. Since now I am doing each category as Quadrants to match our space theme, I will be referring Spotlight as Comet as in Convention Comet and Convention Impossible as Convention Nebula since we do discover new conventions if we can travel to them. So now stay tuned for the Convention Comet on Omni Fandom Expo when it gets closer!

We will still post our interviews by the way and hoping to add more pics of me with the guests like we had in the past since it does add a bit of a flare to those posts. And with the Subscriptions post I will also include links to the products for you guys so you can explore the items themselves. Which makes me changing the Beauty part of this blog to the Beauty Galaxy and separate the Beauty Subscriptions to Subscription Sattelite since it would fit the alliteration a lot better with that part. I think that is about it since we have changed over time and it would be better to separate our items and make more titles space infused. And of course, glad to be a part of this vast nerd universe alongside with you all. 2020 will be a big year for this blog especially now that it’s a full on website and we will keep it that way as well.

What is next? We do have an interview with one of the rangers from Power Rangers Jungle Fury and now waiting on my subscriptions to arrive since Glam Bag Plus has been shipped and BoxyCharm is also on its way. And make sure you check us out on Twitter and YouTube for any convention videos, my beauty videos, and our Twitter updates! Until next time!

The Interview Quadrant: Justin Nemo from Power Rangers In Space!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! Now to continue with our interviews from RangerStop!

Interview with Justin Nemo from Power Rangers in Space!

Happy New Year to all and hoping you all had a safe one and partied until the morning rays. Now I am back with another interview and that is with Justin Nemo who played Zane in Power Rangers in Space! When I heard that he was a guest for this past year’s event I wanted to interview him and glad that Gondras got the interview. What did I ask the Silver Space Ranger? Watch the video and you will find out!

That is it for this post guys! Next up is our interview with Space Red Andros himself! Stay tuned! Also will be bringing more RangerStop coverage since we have to get our panel videos sewn together and rendered so hoping we can get those up by Omni this year. Also, stay tuned for updates on our upgrade and of course my subscriptions for January! Until next time!

The Interview Quadrant: Patrick David from In Space!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another post!

RangerStop 7 Interview with Patrick David from In Space!

Sorry for the wait guys but have been working hard at the YouTube Quadrant with getting looks up with holiday sets I purchased this year and glad to be back here! So, we are on the last Psycho Ranger and that is Patrick David. He plays Psycho Red on In Space and on Lost Galaxy since the crossover with both teams dealt with the Psychos again. Still makes me sad with Kendrix in that. Anyways, we were glad to get him towards the end of the convention since he was heading home but was nice enough to give us some time. I love this convention and glad some people had time and unfortunately we did run out towards the end on that Sunday and same with the guests. There is always next year after all! What did we get to ask this guy? Check it out!

Well guys that is it for this post! Stay tuned for our interview with Justin Nemo! Since its Christmas Eve I want to wish you from the bottom of our hearts here at Nerdy SHique Universe a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays to you all! I have enjoyed my first year being away from home and also bringing more posts to this blog and the YouTube channel. I never thought I would listen to Christmas music again since my spirits have gotten better since I started working and even worked harder here and on YouTube. Please have a safe, happy, and healthy holiday! Until next time! Stay beautiful and merry while traveling the vast universe!
