    WHY CAN'T I BE ON THE LIST?
    To anyone who is curious the catalog site and pages were started by La Parka as a way to have a running list of all kaiju and other asstd figures and i believe he had some minor work in helping Mr Flynn with the first " Super 7 The Book"..He and i are friends so La Parka asked for my help with this but it wound up being such a massive project that we left it to our resident professional(Brian) and proceeded to enjoy the toys instead with pics and friends..The forum Can I Be On The List was started by myself and moderated by both la parka and myself at the start..When we outgrew the phpbb site we brought in Bryanarchy to help us make a new and better site..The forum was originally created for an extremely small group of us that were tired of the hating and douchebaggery that was prevelant at the time on the Kidrobot forums and here also..It wound up growing quickly to almost fifty people most of whom are still on this forum..We never left anyone out intentionally unless they were drama queens and or problematic. CIBOTL was free of any of that and the few isolated issues we had we rectified quickly..Names were suggested by all members and we all voted on whether to invite or not based solely on votes as we were a collevtive and not toy snobs as has been suggested lol. We were and still very proud of the killer job Paul and everyone involvded did on our Gogamozilla..I had to sell my original which got over $1200 and theres still one up on ebay which is my deceased sisters for 800plus( no i do not own it)..To anyone that felt left out or hurt i sincerely apoligise and have nothing but love and warmth for our toy community..I've been absent from here mostly due to losing my sister and not wanting to look back, which i am ready to do now..We have a flickr account which mrhumphreys was kind enough to post a link too but the forum was closed down due to declining participation which i believe was because of the toy community setling down and getting back to some level of harmony..I still have close to 300 figures and toys still and post them regularly on Facebook under "sarge and reds gaming and toy" in order to keep the passion alive for us all.Anyone want to chat feel free to hit me up on here or email me at johnnyhottrod@yahoo.com.au..Thanks and i hope everyones healthy and well! and an FYI no urban vinyl was ever allowed on our pages, it was kaiju, fight figures and super 7 products only! ;)

    Just curious, were CIBOTL and the Anraku lists basically the same?

    I honestly don’t remember. Parka was more the list end while I ran the forum I helped him more with the fight figures like Real Head and Secret Base

    I remember asking someone who I knew was on the list if I could join a few times...Never had the privilege. Thanks for sharing the details, much of that was news to me.

    Nice to see an old familiar name back here. Any interest in Instagram? A lot of us old schoolers (and noobs) use it these days.
