    My interest in this discussion resides solely on the figure itself and the body of work that is Le Merde.
    Since the character is somewhat of a mystery and may be even more so for new LM fans, here's my guess..,

    Everyone knows you East heads aren't gully for real, undergrounds all about the right coast! :twisted: Seriously though, I couldn't agree more Sanjeev. It really bugs me when giving someones toys praise gets you quantified as a butt kisser around here. I am to old to act cool and unimpressed just to be punk, hip hop or Nag enough. I realized some time ago that although I am a tea snob, and a music snob and a food snob... that I can be all those things for my own enjoyment without reducing other peoples choices or happiness. If you cant show enthusiasm and excitement about the toys you like what the hell are we all doing? It reminds me of Safety Dance.

    Say, we can act if we want to. If we don't nobody will. And you can act real rude and totally removed and I can act like an imbecile.

    Speaking of classes and categories and what is cool or not, interesting that you would bring up the lyrics to Safety Dance...Ivan from Men without Hats was often to be seen at hardcore shows in Montreal during the eighties. I always thought that was odd in a really cool way ! I don't think anybody ever called him a dance-music top 40 poseur or anything like that.

    That is awesome. In the late 80's and early 90's my friends would throw dances (not raves) and put up odd and obscure flyers all over town. We would play everything from the Cure and Butthole Surfers to Public Enemy and Gang Starr. One night this couple in their 70's showed up dressed to the nines ready to dance to some ballroom. They didn't quite know what to think at first but then they just danced the night away with us. I still remember and respect that couple to this day. Back on topic, grats to Mike for any exposure and success he has. His work kicks ass.

    Sanjeev--

    a little late and slight derail.

    I got my 80's Transformers back from my parents attic this past Christmas. They are in pieces. Same as the Joe's. The Go-Bot's are standing strong! Go-bot Supremacy.

    Just remember, Daimyo, the East created it...the West just decorated it! ;)

    But, yeah, there IS a rational medium between hating and dick-riding. That *ought* to be why we're even on this board...but too often, it's because of one of the other two things. That's nothing but ego talking...and none of the sincere passion this shit's supposed to be about.

    Haha...rockert, I dunno man! Watch your back, money: there aren't too many cats repping Gobots!! I actually wonder what's more reviled: Gobots or Beast Wars (Trukk not Monkey!).

    Dummy's are hipster knick knacks. They are record store cash register decorations.

    If you hand my 2 year old son a dummy, he will glance at it, then chuck it.... Not a toy
    If you hand him standard size Gargamel he will carry it around the house, talk to and pose it. TOY

    The Mishka chase is sick. New head with chainsaw. First d-unny I really liked. I was asked but refused but a bearbrick, ...hmmm that's a different story. More power to the people that do one though.

    Wow, years later and the same boring arguments and lines drawn in the sand.
    Anyone that thinks KR is for hipsters and s7 isn't, hasn't noticed that paying 70 dollar for a toy and a sticker or bandanna that say's toy pirates comes with it. yeah. not hipster at all.
    No wonder things always start to feel stale.
    The only thing that amazes me is how KR continued to turn over fans so often b/c of poor quality but still kept finding new audiences. The first few series had major qc issues, as did many of their other products. That is the biggest problem I ever had with KR.

    And be@rbricks are awesome. ;)
