I don't know if you can say "hurt" based on that statement, but my perspective is that Seibertronians not being as "warm" equates to "we're not kissing enough ass"!
Seriously, I like this project, I like his Predacon project. I've messaged ETF a few times to tell him so. But looking purely at responses in THIS VERY THREAD, the worst critique I can find is that someone isn't "enthused". Other commentators stated that they would not purchase the product because it was going to be released through Shapeways; these folks don't have the time or skill to paint the product and would prefer a mass production. That's some valid feedback, because it means less sales overall. Months later, ETF announces he's looking at the possibility in releasing as a mass production set. WONDERFUL!!! That hopefully equates to more sales. And the people who took the time to comment here will hopefully be able to support him in this endeavor.
I only hope that ETF's statement was more directed towards the volume discrepancy he received here compared to at TFW. Again, look through this thread and find that most responses were VERY positive. It seems we simply don't overwhelm the thread every day with comments/critiques/when's this coming out?/no new updates? as can be found elsewhere.
Overall, it's an individual choice where you want to read or post comments. If anyone finds that the 3P discussion is better elsewhere, no one is holding them back. Hell, I maintain another account for this reason but I'm really active here because I feel I've made more connections with the folks on this board who post. And because it's a lot easier to go through the few comments here compared to multiple pages.
jrgreer74 - There's nothing else for me to comment on about this product. I like it as is, and anxiously await hearing that I can preorder. I don't want a tweak to a color, or sculpt changes, etc. If ETF wants more feedback for something specific, he can come here and ask or maybe another board member can alert us to the matter. Thanks for trying to ramp up support for ETF and his add-on kit, but it seems we're not actively discussing this product because there's nothing more to discuss right now.
