Thanks man... Appreciate the kind words. I believe in an honest opinion, no holds barred, and that's what I deliver... To me, if a figure isn't any good I'm going to let the masses (And Hasbro when they visit the site) know what wasn't liked. Some would say that's a negative thing, but I've heard to the contrary.
I customize as well, but when doing a review I can't take that into account as much as it maybe is true in my own universe. With Dannik Jerriko I have to think of the sheer # of people I saw complain about the holes and the fact most of them don't customize... Same with Feltipern's "skirt" not being pliable enough. And from my own point of view I don't customize if I don't feel I have to... Really I have one of everything untouched actually, whether good or not.
It's a balance... My customizing side wants to take over and say "well you can fill the holes in and paint it" on Dannik, or just slit the skirt piece up the side to make it more pliable on Feltipern, but in reality 90% of the people buying the toys won't do that to it and feel it's a complaint. I have to agree with them.
And we can just hope Hasbro fixes things int he future.
And I agree on Dannik with the masses, that the probe things were just not necessary. I'm the last person to gripe about getting MORE with a figure, but those things really butchered an otherwise great sculpt.
I'm glad you popped in to say hey and drop some feedback. I appreciate hearing back from folks.
