The Kawah Ijen volcano in East Indonesia produces molten sulphur from vents in its sides, which appear bright red during the day but glow blue by night.

AHH!!! Never-before-seen alternate angles and scenes from STID!! \*-*/
In the new Star Trek trading cards that come out today, February 26th!! \*-*/
I’ll post HQs of the images once I can scan my cards. :D
I’m dying from all the beauty!! \*-*/
I’ll make a post with more images later tonight, this first one was just because I needed to gush about it right away and show my favorites, the ones with Khan and Kirk!! \*-*/
LOOK AT THIS!! KIRK HOLDING THE COMMUNICATOR FOR KHAN TO TALK WITH SCOTTY!! \*-*/ ASDFGHJKl;
Why does that look so kinky to me?? XD;;; My brain is a swamp of porn I swear…
And this… *-*
And Kirk as they put him
NAKED?! 8Din the cryotube asdfghjkl;
I am now the happy owner of 864 packs of cards.*shoots self* XD;;; lol
(I destroyed my poor wallet in hopes to get the rare collector ones I’m hoping to find. ^^; Especially the super rare autograph cards and the costume relics cards.)
They come out today, everybody~! \*-*/ IT’S BUYING SPREE TIME~!
(When new Star Trek stuff comes out I’m worse than if it was a scarf sale. XD;;; lol)
Also, the last issue of IDW’s Khan mini-series comics came out today too. So twice the reason to go to the store. ^^
And some extra info for people new to collecting such things (+ some good and bad news):
The only way to get the super rare Khan autograph card is to purchase 9 cases. (That’s 2592 packs of cards).
It’s because his autograph is not a normal part of the trading card release. (Possibly because it’s trickier to arrange a several-hundreds cards signing gig with someone in the UK and currently so busy. So they had Benedict sign only a few cards and those are given as retailer gifts to shops or people buying 9 cases.)
Also, the uniform relics are the bridge characters and admirals etc., but THERE IS NO RELIC CARDS FOR ANY OF KHAN’S OUTFITS.
Which means we can’t get little torn pieces of Khan’s outfits, but it is also excellent news, because it means his outfits weren’t destroyed. And maybe they are keeping them for the next movie, omg, I HOPE SO MUCH~!! \*-*/ (It happens sometimes, or they might have less spares and use them for exhibits etc., while they might have had more spares of Kirk’s shirts etc. and thus were able to cut it up without consequences. I love Khan’s outfits so much, so I’m so relieved that they weren’t destroyed, even if it means I can’t get my grabby hands on pieces of them. ^^; )
And just in case, don’t be bummed about not finding an autograph card you want, the most enjoyable way to get an autograph is by meeting your beloved actor in person anyway (and that’s always possible sooner or later, by keeping an eye on when there will be public events etc., even if sometimes that means you have to travel… it might take time but you’ll eventually manage if you persist! :D<3)
Enjoy the cards for the collecting fun and the possible little chunks of the screen-used outfits etc., but don’t feel bad if you don’t get exactly the one you’re looking for. :D Just keep hunting for it and have fun~!
