How about a little petition to persuade DC Direct to make Tim Bruckner's Flash for DC Dynamics, which of course means wooing Bruckner to come back and work for (or run) DC Direct.

Who's with me?

Post this in any other forum or anywhere else that is appropriate.

Tweet it and Facebook it too.

Tweet this: @DC_NATION should get @THBruckner to do his Flash DC Dynamics statue and probably let him run the statue arm of DCDirect.

Here's what we could have had, Bruckner's roughed version of the DC Dynamics Flash that he posted on his Facebook page and was posted here: http://statueforum.com/showpost.php?p=3 ... stcount=12

It means people were interested enough in the topic to read it, but not invested enough in the topic to respond. For me, these statues are out of my budget, so commenting on them one way or the other makes no sense.

Even if DCD did decide to go forward with it I very much doubt it would be Tim doing it... and without Tim's involvement in the line/project I'm just not interested. That line was a great collaboration between Tim and Georg and both have moved on.

More's the pity.

Which brings up an unfortunate dynamic (no pun intended) about internet forums: there are by far more negative posts than positive posts. :(

While I don't own any of this line currently, they have been on my 'short list' of items for a while. That is a disappointment to hear that they have ended, as I was hoping we'd see more of these fantastic statues. :(

Great! Keep letting DC Direct know how you feel on their FaceBook page and on Twitter @DC_NATION.

The problem, as Dan so correctly stated, is that these statues were a collaborative effort between Tim Bruckner and George Brewer. Since neither of them are still at DC Direct, there really isn't any point to trying to continue these.

If some other artist wants to come along and try his hand at something similar, great. But, give it a new name, new marketing, and let the line by Bruckner go out with the respect it deserves.

Either that or mend whatever fences are necessary to mend and get back to making some of the finest, most creative pieces ever made.

I just had this thought: DC Direct could get two for one out of this statue by releasing a simple repaint as a Reverse Flash DC Dynamics. That's twice the reason for making this!

There was a 250% increase in the number of signatures in the last 24 hours!

Also, DCD could do a repaint of this and release a Prof. Zoom Dynamics as well. It would be a big money maker!
