LOL! Firing squad! I think it was great! To expand on my last post a bit, I'd like to say, negative for being negative, I might not want to hear. But, if it can change something! Well, then every single member should post something, then Hasbro should get multiple copies of everything posted, plus the podcast they want to do of all Hasbro's recent failings. I would just like to know that it will change something. I'm a three tries and your out type, so between Animated, RTS, and now Prime First Editions, well.... They are pushing it! So if I tune in to an all negative podcast it will just get me pissed off again. If it would help even in the very, very least, I say slam the crap out of them like they do us. Three times we have been teased and hyped up with their reveals, and no satisfaction. The proverbial "Blue Ball" technique is getting old fast. The third party stuff keeps looking better and better to me, and Hasbro doesn't even seem to notice that they are turning away their biggest supporters. They keep "Blue Balling" us, and we may just find something else to invest in. None of us like it, yet they continue to do it. I can complain probably as much or more in ways, but I am realistic, it's a business. I can't expect us to change anything, so I tend to ignore it. A podcast of just complaining that brings no change at all, just isn't worth me getting mad all over again. A podcast of negative things about a figure or figures, complain away, it may save me a few dollars. Negative stuff like that isn't negative when it is based on fact. If I listen and don't like what I hear, I don't have to buy the figure. That is changing something, even if it is just me. Besides, I like to hear what the guys think! If they decide to slam Hasbro, let them, Hasbro deserves it, it is a fact, based on facts, so it isn't a negative to me it's a critique! Hasbro failed us, they critiqued the facts. Set back and wait in a hope that one day we see Animated Blackout and others, RTS, like Rumble and Frenzy, and First Edition Prime figures and box sets. I may have my hopes up and my fingers crossed, but I'm not going to hold my breath!!!
I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
