RS is a bit whiney come to think of it. Darklords' post was very valid for the JD threads. I hope Hasbro reads it, lets keep it going. DK I think the post co
uld have been cut down its a bit lengthy but well written.
Well, thanks. And you're right. I CAN be VERY long-winded regarding opinions that I'm passionate about. My apologies to everyone in that regard.
Darklord the parts you suggest would never work but Hasbro could have retrofitted the 2006 Han carbonite figure much easier & more cost effective for them with a more pleasent result.. With that figure as a base just add new arms and new jacket. This figure is in a rack and does not need bendy knees.
Actually the parts for the custom Bespin Han I illustrated are basically te same as what you suggest in your post. The predominant "base figure" in mine is SAGA II "Pit of Carkoon Han Solo
(just as it is in yours). And the other parts I've illustrated actually DO work well together, but I think I know what you mean: The availability of some of those suggested parts (Re: Vintage Kenner Jacket, Saga "Carkoon" Han legs modified
for knee articulation, etc.) would go beyond
a simple "kit-bash".
I think YOUR Photoshop illustrated custom looks pretty darn cool too!
I know what you mean. I must have no critical abilities. I only saw the figure in person, photographed it extensively for one collecting site's Celebration 4 coverage and was going on my in-person and photographic observations. I must be crazy.
I never said or even implied that I thought you or anyone else had "no critical abilities", or were "crazy". And I apologize if I made you think I did. On the contrary. I was merely pointing out my frustration at seeing a figure so widely acknowledged as sub-par by collectors and fans also being so universally supported and apologized for.
I think you made some excellent points in your posts. And it was for that reason that I tried to address each and every single one of them in my responses... as a respectful courtesy to you. Clearly in my zeal to do so, I was... lengthy with my words.
Okay. You've only spammed this post at another 7 forums (at least the one's that I've found so far). I'm sure you can find more reasonable people to antagonize at those boards.
Well, I never really considered anyone unreasonable
here. And I certainly did not set out to "antagonize" anyone. If anything, there were one or two early posts in this thread that were clearly antagonistic toward ME, my opinion, and how widely I expressed it (on other sites).
I directly addressed some of those comments. And in each instance, I used language that was articulate and respectful.
I suppose that all I can do (as a gentleman) is apologize to you once again for offending you by giving this topic as much visibility as possible on other message boards. In my previous posts, I (reasonably) expressed my reasons for doing this, but perhaps you missed it. By the way, counting this
board, this topic was posted on 10 sites.
