Start a Fire

Finally! After many ifs and buts, when I finally came home from my last couple of tours, my dear little tank had arrived. I hadn’t had the time to get around to open it until very very recently though, but all I can say is FINALLY. Like, FINALLY. Oh how I’ve waited for this little precious!


So, the box it came in was equally as pretty though! But let’s take a closer look of it, shall we? To be honest, I’m not much for “preserving” the mint condition, as I have no plans on selling it – and if I ever reach that point of desperation, I don’t think it would’ve mattered.


Here it is in all it’s glory. It’s a replica of their own stage tank Audie, and I love the details.

All I need now is a Hannes actionfigure with a drumkit to put on top of it and it’s ready to go!

Along with it came some additional treats: The dogtag with the number, some additional picks and yet another CD. So this marks my THIRD CD of “The Last Stand”. And as you guys know, I hate having duplicates, so getting YET ANOTHER of the same album… Well, I should be thankful I guess.

It also came with an autographed card. How sweet.

For it being late, we were also sent a bottleopener made out of a drumstick for consolation. It’s… funny, but I must admit I don’t know if I’d ever use it. It seems a bit fragile… But who knows?


Well. That is pretty much it for this blog. I’m really excited to have my little tank at home finally, and it’s joined the shelf with Epica’s earbook of “The Holographic Principle” and the House of Gold and Bones from Stone Sour. It does inspire me to start re-do things in my room… We’ll see what happens, shall we?
