j1h15233 & fball13z (aka the biggest contrarions on this board). I did not ask for this person's real name nor for him to become the lightning rod for Mattel's criticizm. I found the opening conglomerate disclaimer a bit insulting. If you're implying that Toy Guru and Fangirl 2.0 were harrased at a dangerous level (which I know nothing about), then the disclaimer makes more sense. However, why would you then spend multiple questions asking about this person's background if we may never hear from him again?
The main point I was trying to make is that there are a lot of fans out there who are hurt and turned off by the past 10 months of DC/Mattel. And if the audience buying their stuff is as small and frugal as they say, then they can't afford to lose them. I was looking for some straight talk from a person rather than a corporation and a few hints of thing to come. Something that AnimateTed understood
You can call me whatever you like, but I am just speaking the truth, go collect some other toy lines from other companies and you will see even less info coming from brand managers. TG is not a "normal" brand manager, he is a fan first and he enjoys talking with the fans. Other brand managers are just doing their jobs and no where in their job description does it say they have to come to toy boards and talk with fans.
Also no where in their job does it say they have to be fans of the lines they work on, which is why people were calling for Fangirl 2.0's job, b/c people said he didnt know what she was talking about.
The sense of entitlement from most fans nowadays is annoying. TG has been a blessing and a curse to toy collecting, a blessing b/c its so great to have a real fan incharge of lots of the toys we love, but a curse b/c now fans expect all brand managers to be just like him.
Again go check out all toyline websites and see how many Questions get answered.
