I love this guy! Most of us give him shingbling and I mean we give him shingbling and he always gets out there in front of the cameras with a smile. That's either a really dedicated man or a well paid man, either way I always liked Mattel because we at least have some communication with them. Does Hasbro have anything like that?

Despite what many think, Scott is one of us. He enjoys toys and collecting and he's got his dream job. He's got to be pretty tenacious, too, otherwise we wouldn't be getting half of the collector stuff we get out of Mattel, it's just not their normal business model.

No Hasbro does not. But they're actually better for it. Scott is getting his head bashed in daily, for issues that are, more often than not, completely out of his control. He constantly communicates with a passionate fan base (which I just call whiny), and still largely gets no respect. No disrespect to Scott, as I think he does a phenomenal job, but I much prefer Hasbro's model of almost complete silence. Big H, has pretty much taken the mantra of "You'll get your freaking toys when you get them, and we'll fix QC issues whenever or if ever we decide to". Over time I've gotten to like this stance a lot more.

So effing well-said.

They used to with all the Q&As they used to do-- although I think they shut them down once every blog and their mother got involved-- and most of the questions evolved into-- when are you doing this specific character (everyone wants him :roll: )-or why arent you putting out the case pack that would be perfect for me and shipping it directly to my house- or thanks now that we got this character-- when are you going to redo him perfectly-- he had the wrong number of beltloops, needs another 20 POAs and is not an exact miniature replica of the character,-- I mean they cost 8.00, I expect perfection..

I still miss 'em, though. You'd occasionally get decent information.

I'm very happy that the MOTUC sub went through. This was my first year getting the sub.

The only thing keeping me on the fence was the Fighting Foe Men, which I have no interest in. If anyone wants them cheap, drop me a line.

Congrats guys. If they ever do a 4" line I'd be right there with you.

Not sure about the FFM, but if either of you guys want to get rid of your Ram Man, let me know. :mrgreen:

I'd personally be interested in the female FFM figure but I'd understand if you didn't want to break up the set in anyway.

I know SDCC was a few weeks back, but it's finally time for Vykron's turn in the review spotlight! http://www.itsalltrue.net
