Well, at least tell me that one of our own isn't trying to hawk these "Republic Commandos"
for 100 bucks!
Not that I have a problem with one selling their work - I'm just sick of seeing these half-arsed, nothing-special-about-them custom clones foisted on the ignorant or unsuspecting collector. The paint job looks good, but if you're going to label it a "Republic Commando," at least give him a custom weapon or some hint
of armor. It's similar to the custom clones for sale that come with a genuine Elite Force M4 or GIJoe M16. No imagination whatsoever. Of course, many of these seem to be done for mere financial gain, with no regard to accuracy or precision.
Maybe it's just me, but it seems there are more and more "customizers" selling mislabelled or plain crappily done stuff lately. I know my definition of "Crappily done" differs from others'. Not everybody must fall in line with my own tastes, and I don't mind seeing crappily done stuff up for sale, just crappily done (ie inaccurate paint lines), fire-engine-red clones labelled as "Custom Commander Cody Bacara Appo ROTS VHTF RARE BUYITNOW 4 $100thankyouverymuch"
, are what chaps my hide. Guess there is a sucker born every minute.
Mountain-out-of-a-molehill nerd rant complete. I will now retreat to my Mom's basement and rebuild the kernel on my 7 linux servers while sewing and painting my very own Tron costume.
