    And to me that's another thing I didn't understand...Two people ( who had gone to the meet, and are in Pictures of Past videos, walk throughs, photo ops with Marty etc) are butt hurt about OTHER PEOPLE, who actively bash and threathen, not being able to go. I couldn't and still do not understand why they couldn't go the other route, and just say "hey, you made your bed , you lie in it. I'm good, and I want to go to see my friends". And yes, I know the person you spoke of who wanted "Death and Damnation" and I asked him pointedly "Why?" no answer....

    I mean, you and I have disagreed over FTC's Penguin from Wave 5, but I respected your opinion, and I believe you respected mine.
    Even if you didn't, I wouldn't wish you "Death and Damnation", because its just a TOY. LOL
    At the end of the day, it doesn't bring world peace, or can cure deadly disease. its just a welcomed distraction, and that's all it should be. :Shrugs

    Now, as they say, the band is all broken up and some of us are scratching our head and like "dude ***?"

    I mean, I read the "rules controversy" and I didn't have a problem with it AT ALL.
    But then again, I'm just a guy in Oklahoma who hasn't offended anyone and tries to help out and "ambassador" as much as I can.
    What do I know?

    thank you Brian and Steve for all you guys do. I know its a LOT of work to do this. I do appreciate all you guys do, and wish you all much continued success.
    I apologize for coming off so salty to you. Some of the wounds were pretty deep and I misread your take on things. I really need to stick to the positive and constructive, less ranting and more sewing.

    I have said this in one way or another many times, but it bears repeating. You guys (Brian, Steve, Robyn, and everyone else who helps run the place), have brought a lot of entertainment, knowledge and joy into my life for the past 16 plus years. The Museum, and all the various offshoots including Plaid Stallions and Brian's YouTube videos never fail to lift my mood and get me excited by some of my favorite things. The fact that this place is intended to be a drama-free haven, and that you guys have kept the barbarians out of the gate is a testament to the unstated mantra of this being a safe place to just enjoy our various hobbies.

    Let the social media groups rise, fall, implode and whatever the hell they are going to do. By becoming vocally hostile groups of bitter man-children, it just separates the small, petty people from those who can look behind such insignificant differences and just enjoy some common bits of media we all love in one way or another.

    I'm sorry any of you have to put up with such negativity that I quite frankly, don't understand on a personal level. But I appreciate everything you do, and will support all your efforts to continue to just have fun with toys. Imagine that.

    I cant stand reading ppl beeotch about Mego or FTC. Forcing sides like u have to hate one. Weve waited so long For these figures to come back. Ive purchased many from them and Neca. Ive tweaked a lot of them but I speak with my dollar not my opinion. Online is filled with opinions which, like something else, everyone has one.
    Buy what ya like and have fun. They are TOYS!!!!

    I second the praise for the admins and moderators of this forum. I appreciate the group of people here. People share their opinions, but I have never seen it cross the lines. I'm not on Facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. I sometimes look on other forums as a visitor for information or to see what new toys are coming. But this is the only forum I am a member of because I feel I am among friends. I am probably missing out on information and purchases because I am not on social media but I am ok with that. I don't need the drama, anger, and negativity.

    I agree with one of these sentiments.

    My take is that FTC has done some spectacular things in a relatively short time. They're also responsible for some absolute crap.

    I've never had an issue with Paul Clarke's China made products. I've never bought any of his cast parts, but ended up with a few in trade. They were absolute crap(except the heads, which were ok.)

    Both companies started with terrible sitcom characters(FTC and N Mgo)that I cared nothing about. There had plenty of good and bad on both sides of the fence. I'm just thrilled to have this much product to choose from.

    When I was a kid, I used to dream of being able to walk into a store and find Mego belts, boots, gloves, multiple colors. These two companies have made that more of a reality than I ever dreamed possible. Thanks to both.

    Now, get your s#!+ together on the crappier stuff!

    yeah that stuff was really cool. It'd be nice to see stuff before it gets to that point, like Swampthing's head or something like that.

    On a related note...just bought the Diana Prince FTC figure...and whaddya know, they made a Diana Prince figure without glasses. For non-Wonder woman fans, that’s like making a Clark Kent without glasses. in a way, the glasses are the whole point.

    Can anyone recommend a pair of glasses that fits the female FTC head?

    To me, the best way to make Diana Prince is the Kelly Garret from 2018 NuMego, clothes swapped with 2018 Sabrina Duncan.
    Brush hair back & make a ponytail with a mini clear rubber hair band (a pack of 200 from Five Below is like $3).
    A Pair of the HP Oval glasses FTC, and done.
