circus punks paul is that you?
Yeah, all SB fans on here don't like other vinyl.
Like my old boss used to say-"opinions are like assholes, everyone has one"..
Sheesh... we didn't even get a "gang" name... Whussup wit dat?
how about the Damn Rascals?
didn't I post on here a long time ago that we were a gang?! see, this makes it official!!
who should we beat up first?
People who like the Sours
This is such a bad article, it really really sucked, no point being made, just basic rambling..WTF
Agreed...he may be a toy slinger, but he is Obviously no journalist.
WooHoo! We are the "Bastard Babies" of the toy scene and people try to make us out as elitist.
i like how it makes us look like some crazy off shoot that came after [expletive deleted] and everything
i agree its poorly written and says nothing but makes fun of us basically
Very true, I think the majority of people on here have 'some' western vinyl in there collections be it Biskup, Kozik, Kaws etc. And people certainly don't just have SB.
Very lame article
Well that's just rediculous.
I don't own that much SB stuff, I'm here for mostly the "patchi element" and RFSO peoples who are the coolest. It's the most exciting thing going.
I just love how the love for kaiju gets cut out like they never existed.
Most of this crap is starting to sound like the doll communities.
The meathead that wrote thats is a tool, plain and simple.
Although I do like the "bastard babies" comment
We should have cesar write a reply on behalf of RFSO
What a tease. I love reading articles about the "toy scene" and hearing other people's opinions whether it be from a collector, creator, seller etc. but this article definitely came up short in my opinion. What did it actually leave the reader with? That there are a lot of different kinds of toys out there and that they can be lumped into a few distict catagories... Wow, brilliant.
yeah, I should make it clear that I'm here for my love of all things MONSTER. I mean, I like that they're toys and all, but it's not the fact that they're toys that I buy them, it's that they're monster toys. that's why I don't really buy toys that aren't (I don't own any vinyl other than kaiju stuff and SB, no Kaws, no Kozik, etc.)
therefore, I'm really more of a monster collector than a toy collector.
It's like the record stores who always put "recommended if you like..." on new and weird store. It seems to assume that you can't like something thing if you don't already like something exactly like it. It's too genre and cliquey. JP vinyl is the most fun to me because the toys are the best quality and generally the most unusual and fun designs around right now. And they all stand on their on two legs without a lot of extra effort on my part.
That being said, try to take my Ghonner and I'll beat you to death with it.
I also think the Japanese just happen to often enjoy/create cool shit. but it's not that fact that they're Japanese that I'm buying them. If there were some awesome Welsh Baragon toys or something, I'd buy them. but there's not. right?
hmm seriously, the article was so boring and self important i stopped halfway though.
looks like it's time to go back and muck through it.
okay, just finished it. ZZZzzzz....
I'll spare everyone a complicated argument, but suffice it to say, labels are so useless (except to search for things on YJA )...As has been said a million times before: buy/collect what you like, talk about it, trade it, post new ideas etc. and try not to piss on someone else's parade...it's an easy recipe for having fun which is the whole point!
That being said, I really want a "bastard babies" shirt...
dude a bastard babies shirt would be cool!!!!!!!!! maybe have a baby version of some SB figure on there!!!!!!!!!!!! that would be HOT.
The most amusing part is whoever this moron is that wrote the article actually assumes that any single one of us actually give a shit what he/she thinks...Why else write a shortsided, feeble minded, pointless piece of trash like that anyway..can anyone actually tell me what the whole point of it was anyway except-WWWAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!
And I think LamourSupreme would be the perfect man for the illustration !!
This makes me angry. Why would VP give an anonymous columnist a chance to slam the SB collectors for no reason and with no context? The article is basically, hello I won’t tell you who I am and btw SB collectors are jerks. What is the point?
It also bothers me that people never seem to put the RFSO stuff in context. That attitude started because people on the KR board used to spend a lot of time telling us how lame/ugly these toys were. In fact they still do.
i say we redouble efforts to post jp toys on "other" sites
but i'm serious.
a lot of people seem to be gaining a basic appreciation for at least nwojk figs. this type of shit is just moronic.
i think i'll add bastard baby to my KR sig line
and this one
