    Congratulations Ben, I think you just found the perfect SB suited gif.

    Man, this thread really has devolved to the new Nag one. At least that one is dead, but that doesn't really mean we need a replacement.

    Yo, 3 things because I don't get to post as much as I used to.

    1. Lixx- you still sit on your high horse about SB. If need be I still have the screencap from when you posted on Kid Robot and called sofubi "toys look like cheap japanese toys you'd get out of the vending machine in the 70's" and how you "didn't get it" because " I mean alot of them are just bagged in a plastic bag with a label stapled on top". Nothing has changed. You still sit and complain. What's new?

    2. The first post I ever read on Skullbrain in late 2005/early 2006 was about "how much it sucked now" by another guy who did the same. I haven't seen him post here in awhile though, and as much as I have issues with Lixx, at least he collects. This other dude did nothing but talk shit on everything and make his shitty resin toys. Skullbrain is like the hardcore scene(sorry for those who have no frame of reference). When you first get in, it's great! Everything is new and exciting. You make new friends and learn a vast wealth of knowledge. There, of course, are a couple of older guys who are there and telling you hardcore died already. It hasn't, they just don't get what they want from it anymore and that's ok too. Yet there they are, at every show, talking to their friends. My advice is to handle it the way I did when I was 18. Punch those fuckers right in the face and send them home. and if that isn't possible. Just block and hide them.

    3. HS still rules. Pushead still rules. That header is fucking awesome. What's up all you old farts that I still love and hello to you fresh meat with the mediocre collections. I miss all of you. Almost all of you.

    bannedindc, I always appreciate your take on things here, it provides a nice counterbalance.

    But there are those of us who could give two shits about the "scene"...conflating participation on Skullbrain with a music scene and the social/cultural identifiers that such a scene confers just doesn't apply to some folks here. I participate in this community, and try to be a decent member that contributes, and I am sure I piss some folks off. But I'm really not looking for acceptance or a " scene" to be part of. I just really fucking love toys. Period. It's all about the toys. I am over a thousand miles from any regularly sanctioned toy culture. If I make some like- minded friends on the journey here, all the better.

    Okay I am sick of reading my own worthless walls of text...
    Bye. :razz:

    I'm not saying you have to be a part nor do I care about the toy "scene" either . I'm simply comparing the enthusiasm that one enters with and how you're met with skepticism immediately. But yes of course It won't apply to everybody here. I have met a few people who have literally been lurking for 7 years. They have no interest in skullbrain nor the politics, yet they are hardcore collectors. I've also met lots of skullbrainers who love toys and just don't have the money to collect like they used to. It seems to me that the people who consistently tell me how much they "don't want to be in the scene" are the ones who post the most drama. walls of text as you put it.

    I gotcha. I agree with that. SB can be whatever you want it to be ultimately.

    One thing we can all agree on is that it is a complete and utter time sink!

    Umm did not know you had issue with me but good to know. also good to know you troll me. :roll: I don't give a flying fuck if you have a screencap of what I said. It was in reference to fight toys and Real Head btw. I know because I said it. And also as someone who actually was around in the 70's my frame of reference for cheap toys is correct. They were then, and coming into new kaiju (2006-2007) I didn't understand why those same toys (only new) were so expensive. I learned just like everyone does here. I don't think I'm on a high horse. Just telling it like it is. And btw I think I've done more for this place then you ever did. I mean really why are you even a mod still? You're heart isn't into it anymore and you just check in once in a blue moon to sell things?

    Don't pretend you are on some higher fucking level of coolness and I'm some n00b. What the hell are you drinking and typing or something? The last conversation I had with you was a plesant exchange about congratulations on your weight loss a few years ago.Thought we were cool. Never knew you had some secret issue with me.

    Huh? How did this get so derailed??

    You have a 28 year old "DXS"S. Who has obnoxiously posted 4 out of 5 TOTAL posts about wanting a toy. 2 of those are in the WRONG forum and technically he isn't supposed to post a wanted list. 8 :lol:

    Lets not turn this is into the stupid Nag thread.

    I almost like the smaller version of the 2-headed beast more. I was really impressed by the detail on my four smaller figures (Mr. X set and the blue gorilla).

    You can take a human head from the members of Smash Mouth four times before you get blessed silence. Also...The Mr. X set is awesome.
