Whaaaaaaaat?  No OTC Lobot?  How can this be?  Nice though.  

Anyone else think that he's been awfully quiet since I posted that picture of 'him' a while back? :-*

I am disappointed with IT.  :(

EDIT: Nevermind, I see that IT was improved since the last time I saw it!

Wow.  Complete, yet discriminatory.  Novel.

Well, there It is.  The cat is finally out of the bag.

I would like to thank Chris Berry, Scott Pearson, Angry Ewok, and the rest of the staff for bringing Lobot's Duplex back to it's deserved place at the forefront of the online Star Wars collecting community--where it belongs.

I know that it was a difficult, laborious process for all involved--in fact, the sheer amount of coding involved delayed the official announcement by three and a half weeks alone.  Not to mention all of the paperwork, red tape, and legal mumbo-jumbo.

As for the OTC Lobot--while some of the staff urged me to update with it, as the site's founder, I have decided that the new Lobot is not quite Lobot-y enough, and as such, it will not be included in the Duplex.

I thank you all for your patience, and I hope you enjoy what is now undoubtedly the finest character focus collection the Star Wars online community has ever (or will ever) seen.

And I do believe that a news announcement on the main page is in order. . .  no?

Well thank you for the explanation regarding the OTC Lobot.  It is sincerely appreciated when someone can take time out to answer the concerns of the little people.  I was and remain a fan of the dupe.

I think this guy deserves to be in the Duplex...

He seems to be the only 1:1 scale Lobot figure out there.

And--maybe it's just me--but shouldn't all of the necessary threads over at Rebelscum and Galactic Hunter be updated with the new site?

I know that several dozen hundred thousand people from those sites were severely saddened and disappointed when the original site (God rest it's soul) went down months ago.

As for the Ritz cracker--unfortunately, as Scott Pearson first reported, it was eaten in a moment of sheer hunger.   :-[

And to you, Morgbug--it's the support of the little people (like yourself) that keeps me and the site going.  But please, capitalize "Dupe" next time, huh?

LLL (Long Live Lobot)!
