Maybe it means more [expletive deleted] or some kind of similar garbage.
lol I like how that brand is censored here. Can we have it done to 'funko' as well?
Feedback- Ultrakaiju said it well.
Your post makes my head hurt. A half-baked (possibly over-baked) idea, pitched to the WRONG audience. If there is some kind of bullshit governing toy collecting body in our future I sure don't want you on it.
This board is composed of thousands of individuals who have had countless good transactions with each other over the years. That's the real deal. The bad folks mostly get run off. What you have proposed sounds like a bunch of garbage. You are going to tell well-established toy makers how to run their personal lottos for ultra-limited toy runs? Wow. Just wow.
If you want your ideas to be taken seriously, become part of the community here first. You have demonstrated neither knowledge, passion nor good will in the realm of Japanese toy collecting. You self admittedly don't collect sofubi. And you ultimately want to tell the community here what to do? I mean, fuck, at least people coming on the board purely to hawk their wares have enough interest and passion to make a toy. You are essentially wanting to create a toy bureaucracy. That's great, just fucking great.
Wow, it sounds like this movement of yours is really taking off. You should have stickers and a questionnaire ready in time for NYCC. That's maybe what, a few days of work? Let us know if you need some help there
Ok I don't how you can come in here and ask for this? Who gives you or anyone in your organization the authority to even come up with this? Maybe the idea in principle is solid but we don't know you from Adam, and this place has been self-governed since it's inception. I mean I don't know what planet you stepped off of but there is absolutely no way in hell you can come in here and say oh yeah give us the authority to tell the artists here how to run their lottery systems. Seriously fuck off no way you're going to make headway here. We decide as a collective how we choose to run this community, not some outsider asking to set rules. Shadiness has always been weeded out here in one way or another by everyone here.
This is the most naive proposition I have ever seen brought up in SB. I for one would like to know who appointed you as an authority to set guidelines to how artist/collectors and even pesky flippers should behave by constructing this "bill of rights". I am assuming self-appointed?
It is a mistake to try telling collectors what to do, who we deal with and how artists should sell their work and how to handle flippers. This is by far an emotional driven hobby and I personally feel like your proposition feels like someone trying to assert control over how I wish to collect and how my relationships with other toy collectors and artists should be.
Everyone here has their own set of morals, game, hustle etc whatever you want to call it when dealing with our particular toy scene. Some collectors are exemplary and I have had the honor of being their friend while others are less than savory. But that's part of the hobby. There will be people you like and people you don't. I don't need a guide to know what my gut instinct tells me.
If you don't even know what we collect then you don't get to tell us what to do. Because you don't understand sofubi collecting.
If you want to put the effort into this bill of rights, go ahead, but don't expect anyone to honor it.
Jesus fuckin' Christ . . . . where do I even begin with this one!
So you anticipate a known douchebag wanting to discuss with you in detail how he's butt-fucked collector's (up to and including felony offences) so you can draft up guideline to make it harder for him to butt-fuck 'em in the future?
You are not my #1 candidate to establish guidelines and dictate a set of rules on buying overpriced plastic dolls!
well in that case...
What the hell just happened?
I think Sam successfully trolled this thread into oblivion.
Dude this went from bad to hilarious
You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it's me, I'm a little fucked up maybe, but we're funny how, I mean funny like we're clowns, we amuse you? We make you laugh, we're here to fuckin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How are we funny?
I am fucking dying
Oh man, I thought this would be something ridiculous, but I didn't expect this level of ridiculousness.
Sofubi toys aren't little cheap made-in-China, blind boxed, deformed rabbits. They're sometimes closer to art than toy. If an artist wants to sell their toy/work a certain way, they're entitled to because they actually put a lot of labor into it. ...but at the same time, if the customer isn't happy about the method of purchase, they can share their opinion on the matter. Heck, a lot of people have already voiced their distaste with the whole new "spam this lotto pic on IG to enter the lotto" crap.
And what if someone legitimately makes a mistake with sales or has a dire emergency, and gets labeled as a flipper? I had to put a few toys on eBay because I needed to pay my vet bill, and the toys didn't sell here. If someone wasn't on SB and didn't see me attempt to sell them here, I would look like a flipper, wouldn't I? What if something happened to me and I was hospitalized, and didn't deliver a toy? Would I be labeled a flipper on your database too?
We've handled things just fine here, especially because we actually know each other some, and are a community. Usually when someone does something perceived as "wrong" someone else steps in and contacts them via a different avenue (in the case of someone gone missing on a deal), resolves it via discussion, or we shame them.
In other words, you don't know how this place works. You don't know how sofubi collecting works. You admitted you don't collect this stuff.
We're handling this just fine, thanks.
And thanks for derailing a thread with a very explicitly focused purpose, tracking and publicizing our favorite conman's aliases and schemes, and totally derailing it. I don't think that Sam is self-actualized enough to troll at this level.
Has Russia entered the vinyl toy game yet? Because I know that it's you, Putin! You may have our democracy, but you'll have to pry my sofubi from my cold, dead hands, "Comrade."
You can't see me but I have put my phone down and started to passionately applaud in your general direction. Bravo sir.
Out of curiosity, has this bill of rights proposal been presented at other communities? I can't imagine that the reaction here is far from the norm. Artists can do what they want, whether it's lotto sales, first come first served or, my favorite, sell only to me (although no one has tried that yet )
@vapdee All of these ideas are insane and you sound like a BAD GUY.
Many opportunists thrive on attention, and negative press covfefe is still covfefe. Get it?
This commie pinko Collector Bill of Rights is hogwash. Pesky regulations only HURT our small businesses. AWAY WITH THEM ALL.
I propose we build a wall to keep these bad hombre KR-types from sneaking into our beloved site undetected. Who's with me SB????
If you read this thread over, you can actually smell spaghetti-o's. It's weird.
