Oh, it's perfectly all right, Darth Ennis -- I jwas just joshing with ya!
Even if the poor sales rep has no actual power to influence what Hasbro makes, I still find it really encouraging that she took an interest, on a personal level, in what customizers do. It gives our hobby at least that much more exposure and publicity. There are plenty of folks out there who misunderstand the whole concept (no, we DON'T pull off limbs just for the sheer joy of pulling off limbs -- I'm sure you clarified that
) and others who just don't know such a hobby exists.
Incidentally, did you tell her about FFURG?
And, as In Rem points out, Hasbro figs have gotten much more customizable as they've generally improved. It's an encouraging trend. What's less encouraging, though, is that the Final 2006 Saga Wave
has not a single female in it -- with the exception of Gragra, who's not the most customizable of female figures!
Anyone know the status of future Hasbro figure lines, incidentally?
